Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Black triangle escorted by two jets.

At 22:03 tonight, I was taking one of my three dogs out for one last time before retiring to bed. I looked up at the sky above me. I saw a triangular shapped craft flying overhead. It was about 20,000 feet in altitude. It had a flashing red light in the middle and two solid white lights at each point at the rear. The white lights created a reflection off the bottom of the craft. It was clearly a shinny black metallic surface. It was being escorted by two fighter jets. The jets had the standard FAA regulation lights. The jet to the left was at a higher altitude than the craft while the jet to the right was at the same altitude as the craft. They were flying due south. The craft was silent. The only noise came from the jets escorting it. I ran to the back door and shouted to my wife to come out. She came out and witnessed the craft as well. We took pictures but our cell phone did not capture anything other than the indistinguishable lights. We watched it as i! t flew beyond our field of vision toward the south. At arm's length, the craft was approximately 2 inches in length. In comparison, the jets were about a quarter of an inch. Interesting night here in NC.
