Location: Okemos, MI
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3-4 minutes
Three Triangle Object passing over Okemos, Michigan, in procession on a Northwesterly Course with a one minute, then two minute interval.

It was approximately 10PM on 9/26/15. I was out in the back yard smoking a cigarette and checking the hot tub. I saw an object approaching from the Southeast. Cloud cover was cumulo-stratus, and there was a full moon. This is why I could see the triangle shape. I can’t estimate speed but it was jet aircraft type speed or greater.

I was in Navigation in the Navy, and am an expert boater on the great lakes. The craft had an amber colored light on its starboard side and roughly half way down the leading edge of the its wing. It made absolutely no noise and the light was steady with no flash.

Typically, you observe a green light on your left wing and a red light on your wing on approaching view.

I was stupefied, as the steady light remained visible as the object went by CPA, and light remained visible as it went away. I thought this was all very peculiar and impossible. The object must have been slightly climbing as it disappeared into the clouds as it went over Lansing, Michigan. It was heading on a direct Northwest direction in terms of Cardinal headings and in TRUE degrees and not magnetic.

So, about the time the first object fades into the cloud,; another identical craft approaches from the Southeast and roughly on the same line as the first but slightly on a path to the right of the previous object. Same thing, steady amber light, no flash and no noise. The second object appeared not to be ascending but on level flight just below the cloud ceiling.

The third object was exactly the same as the previous two and it approached from the Southeast as well and was on the same line but slightly to the left of the other two objects. At first, I thought UFO, but the silhouette was more like a stealth fighter. Trouble is, I am guessing cloud ceiling was about 10,000 feet and visibility was unlimited and these were much too big to a stealth fighter. I estimate size at jet airliner scale or slightly larger. One last thing; that amber light was particularly large.
