Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Observed triangle shaped craft moving at high velocity from East to West, then make an almost 90 degree turn to the north.
On 09/26/03 at aproximately 01:44 hours two colleges and I observed what appeared to be a triangle shaped craft moving at a high rate of speed from East to West. The craft passed almost directly overhead and then made what I would describe as an almost 90 degree turn to the North, and continued on until out of site. The estimated duration from when I first saw the light to when the craft disappeared from view as it headed North was aproximately 5-7 seconds.
The craft appeared to be dark gray in color, and had what appeared to be a single amber colored beacon light underneath. During the sighting there was absolutely no sound heard by me or the other two witnesses. I wasn't able to determine the craft's shape until it passed almost directly overhead. As far as size comparison, The rough estimate of the craft as viewed from the ground could be compared to a quarter held at arm's length against the night sky.
My immediate impression regarding the craft was that it seemed to fly effortlessly through the sky, like an arrow.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he sounded to us to be quite credible and reliable. We have invited him to have the other two witnesses submit reports, as well. PD))
