Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
Three lights in the shape of a triangle with one red light in the center.

On Wednesday, April 17th, 2019, at approximately 20:20 hrs., I took my dogs out to the back yard as I normally do every day around this time. My rear door faces South, so when I walk outside, I’m looking almost due South. It was mostly cloudy with high thin clouds and I could see the brightest stars in the sky intermittently through the clouds. My attention was drawn almost directly above, to a silent, triangle shaped object that was heading South at a rather slow rate of speed compared to the everyday air traffic in the area.

Another interesting comparison to the everyday local air traffic is it goes East to West or West to East and very rarely have I ever seen it travel North to South. The only things that appear to deviate from that pattern are helicopters, hot air balloons or powered parachutes and none of these can be mistaken for what I saw.

I watched in disbelief as I attempted to explain it away in my mind, but I couldn’t. There were three white or dull white lights, each marked a corner of the triangle and it had one slowly, pulsating red light in the center. I was able to see an outline of the triangle since the moon had the clouds somewhat glowing. I didn’t have my phone with me when I reached for it to snap a picture and I could feel my heart pounding harder with each second that I watched, knowing that no one would believe me. I thought I saw a green light near the front of the triangle which, appeared to be circling in a sporadic manner of directions. The green light looked like just a light that I couldn’t determine an outline for, much smaller and much less intense compared to the triangle. This all happened in probably less than a minute, but I couldn’t leave my dogs out, so I called inside to my wife, but she didn’t hear me over the TV.

I slept on this before typing this because I still can not believe what I saw.
