|Flying Triangle craft observed over Shreveport, Louisiana, on night of 27 May 2015.
Shreveport, Louisiana, around 10:15 pm CDT
Duration of sighting: 5 minutes
Angle of view: 45 degrees above horizon
Estimated altitude of craft: 5,000 ft gal
Estimated speed of craft: 50 mph
A triangle shaped craft was observed flying slowly and silently over Shreveport on a northerly heading, most likely flying directly over Interstate 49 which is a north-south highway in the city.
I was observing from a distance of one (1) mile east of Interstate 49 with a clear field of view, in the southeast section of the city. Weather conditions were clear and calm.
At arms length, the craft appeared to be the same size as the width of my thumb, which is an average-sized adult male thumb.
I was also able to view the craft using a high-quality pair of 10x50 binoculars that gave an enlarged and more detailed view.
I could not discern any distinct structure, but did observe that background stars disappeared from view as the craft passed in front of them.
The shape of the craft was an elongated deltoid triangle with a single blinking red light centered underneath, and non-blinking white lights on each of the three corners.
There was no green light, which is normally required on the right wingtip of all aircraft.
With the binoculars, a row of three dimmer non-blinking yellowish lights could be seen along the starboard leading edge of the craft just aft of the most forward non-blink white light. I surmise that these were windows.
I observed the craft as it continued to fly north of the city until if became obscured by trees on the horizon in the distance. The speed and altitude seemed to remain constant during my observation.
There was no audible sound at any time.
This is the sixth time in the past year that I have observed such a craft flying over my city at night, and it has always been seen in this same way, in the same place, flying in the same manner and direction.
The next time I see this craft I will be prepared with my Nikon DSLR and f/1.8 lens along with my Panasonic PV-GS300 low-light capable miniDV camcorder.
I am a lifelong aviation enthusiast and airplane spotter and am certain that this was not a conventional aircraft.
I would welcome a reply, but am not requesting one.
