Appeared above and behind mountain range. Size: smaller than thumb at arm length. When observed with 50x binoculars from observation tower, shape difficult to resolve due to brightness, but looks generally triangular. Entire object is lit up and flashing.

((NUFORC Note: Due to the length of the sighting, we suspect that a "twinkling" star would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the witness may have been looking at a genuine UFO. PD))
