Shape: Triangle
Duration:1-2 minutes
I was in the passenger side of a Jeep driven by my brother. We were driving home to our fathers house from our mothers house and had turned right onto Carter Rd. in Penfield.

Going down Carter Rd. we saw 3 bright white lights just above the tree line. At first we assumed it was a regular aircraft and said nothing. After 10 seconds it become clear it was traveling low as it was changing position quickly. It moved in a steady straight path as we drove until it was at our right hand side after 20-30seconds down carter rd.

We exchanged words such as "do you see that too?" And when it became clear this was an unusual event my brother pulled over on the shoulder of the road to get a better view. Just as he pulled over it was passing by us in a smooth unbroken path and we saw it very close potentially less than 200 feet away.

The reason im taking the time to write this is because I think this next part is important. We saw the lights reflection off of the "hull" and saw the light of the sky, stars etc was black between the 3 lights such that it became visually clear this was one solid object. It gradually disappeared over the trees out of sight going North North East towards Rochester.

We later both drew pictures of what we saw when we arrived home. The pictures showed triangle shapes with 3 lights on either corner. To this day this experience has left me confused and upset.
