Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
TR-3B Astra?

I was alerted to the presence of a low altitude helicopter. I opened my window and looked up to see a helicopter at about 600ft. altitude flying directly below and behind a large triangle object at about 1500ft. altitude. The helicopter and triangle object were traveling Eastward. The helicopter was lit underneath and appeared to be military, possibly UH-1N. The triangle object was very slow moving at about 50 knots. The triangle made no perceptible sound. The triangle had large, round, diffuse white lights on each corner, a large faint yellowish/orange light in the center, and a small strobing red light off center to the rear of the craft. I estimate the size of the triangle to be about 300ft. from corner to corner. The helicopter broke course and headed Westward at low altitude along the Allegheny river then down the Ohio river while the triangle continued slowly Eastward until out of view.
