Duration:2 minutes
Trianular shaped, silent aircraft with pulsing white lights silently and quickly passed over top in Newark, DE.

Pulling onto my street, around 9:30pm on April 15th, 2015, which is located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of Newark, Delaware, by the border of Pennsylvania, I happened to look to the left in the west and up into the sky as I usually do, driving home. I noticed some bright and what I thought were distant lights moving slowly towards my direction eastward.

My first thought was that it was a commercial airliner coming straight towards where is was on Bristol Lane in Cotswold Hills. I don’t usually see lights this bright or commercial airliners for that matter moving in this direction over top of my neighborhood which slightly sparked my interest.

The PHI Airport is a little over 35 miles NE from me and I do see lots of air traffic at night when skies are clear and this was a clear night. The Dover Air Force Base is about 50 miles south of me.

As I looked up and saw the aircraft, I thought is was far away and might have been low flying because it didn’t appear to be high in the sky. I was still driving and slowed to stop and watch the aircraft as I saw it approaching fairly quickly. Within about 30 seconds of spotting it in the distance, it was now almost right on top of where I was.

I quickly rolled the windows down, shut the car off, and stuck my head out of the window to listen for any engine noises. I heard nothing. It was still silent outside. Looking up I could now see that this craft had three large randomly pulsing white lights underneath of it with one red light in the center. The white lights were not all pulsing at the same time. They were pulsing independently of each other. The red light was a solid and consistent brightness. As the craft went directly over top of me I noticed it was still making no noise at all. My neighborhood is very quiet and I can usually hear, jets, propeller p! lanes and helicopters. There is a farm field behind my neighborhood and no bright shopping centers or main roads are very close to me to create noise or light pollution.

Looking straight up I also noticed that the body of the craft is in the definite shape of a large dark triangle because it blocked out the sky in that area which was full of stars this night. I also noticed now that it was moving very quickly because it was very far away at first but within seconds it was on top of me. As it went overhead, I could see one more small red like in the very back center of the triangle. It quickly, silently passed over top of me and over the house to my immediate right. Still no noise at all. I put my head back into the car and started it up again and then quickly pulled forward to track the object after it was blocked by the house.

When I saw the object again, which was only about 5 seconds later, it was very far away moving in the same eastern direction. It might have been at least a mile away at that point and quickly and steadily moved away and out of sight in the next minute until I couldn’t see it at all anymore. That was the last I saw of it.
