Location: Swain, NY
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
Very Large black slow moving triangle slowly fades then helicopters show up.

I was sitting in my hot tub around 5:30pm. It just got completely dark. It was a clear sky and the stars were not completely visible being was early evening. In the south west sky there were what looked like three stars in a triangle formation. It looked odd being that the surrounding stars were not all that visible. I started to pay attention to it and the three “stars” were moving together slowly going from the south east to the northwest. Once, recognizing this it became easier to see that it looked like a very large black (the color was very similar to the surrounding night sky) triangle very high up moving like a glider, no noise and slow. It was like it was camouflaged. It was moving across the sky for about thirty seconds and then the lights and the camouflaged center faded and it was gone.

Normally, I would not take the time to report this however after it faded there were two more tradition single bright red and white lights, alternating flashing showed up 30 seconds later from the east and slowly circled the area in the sky where the triangle was. This lasted for 5 minutes then they proceeded northwest. The speed, to me suggested these were helicopters however no sound and they were at a very high altitude.

I do not have pictures. My cell phone was inside and I was as I stated in the hot tub and it happened pretty quickly time wise.
