Location: Princeton, NJ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5-7 minutes
Black triangle over Princeton, NJ.

Observer background: Masters student currently in 3rd year of coursework in the study or religion. Familiar with some UFO literature.

Initially observed what seemed to be a satellite, then realized it was moving in an impossible flight path (e.g. it did not move in a straight line, its speed was inconsistent as it sped up and slowed down).

I then further realized I was looking at a point of line that was connected to 2 other points of light, forming a triangle. The triangle object was very large (looked about 4 inches across and not very high up--less than a 1000 ft., I'd estimate), black with shimmering edges, and its lights did not so much pulsate as they did shimmer as well.

Called friends to come see what I was looking at, but before they could arrive, the triangle seemed to break apart into 7-8 smaller lights and flew off at impossibly fast speeds, disappearing from view within seconds.
