Location: Gainesville, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:90 seconds
White triangle headed northwest at incredible speed till out of eyesight.

I felt like i wanted to look at the sky, so I went outside to smoke. i saw what i thought was a very large white bird flying really high up thru some faint clouds.

I thought about what kinda bird it could be and why would it be so high while i watched it. It moved in a straight line at a steady pace.

As it cleared the clouds i saw that it was not a bird, but a white triangle with no noticable lights. it looked slightly blurry,solid white.

I was still convinced it was probably a large bird like maybe a giant crane and that i just couldnt see its wings move and that why it looked triangular.

I watched it travel westward until it did an amazing series of loops and zigzags at an incredible speed, then it took off northwest over the archer road area so fast that it virtually disappeared out of eye sight. it moved so fast it seemed like it left a tracer or trail of itself for a split second. I estimate that i watched it for about a minuite and a half before it zoomed off.

i would still believe that it was a really big white bird but there is no way any bird could move that fast or make such servere turns and loops.

Im not prone to making up stories. Im not addicted to drugs. Im not on medications that make me see things.Im pretty sceptical of these kinds of stories without some kind of picture or video.

I do follow ufo sightings regularly but i dont recall a white triangle being a thing people see often. I appreciate any feedback into this that anyone sees fit.
