Location: Valencia, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Silent, triangular object with three dim, greyish lights

My family and I were leaving a restaurant after a late dinner. The night was clear and cold.

I noticed three greyish lights moving across the sky, approximately SSE. At first, the lights reminded me of geese flying in formation, but after watching for a few seconds, they ultimately appeared to be part of one triangular object. There were lights at each point of the triangle, although the lighted areas themselves seemed rounded, not sharp-edged or pointed. The lighted areas were dim and hazy, and they were fairly large in size compared to what appeared to be the relative size of the object. It is possible that the lighted areas consisted of groups of smaller lights, but the lights were too dim to tell. The lights were moving in a very smooth, consistent manner, and were moving in a straight line. Ultimately, not very far away, the object faded away, as it had moved quite a distance fairly quickly. However, a normal aircraft would still be easily visible at the point where this one effectively faded into the sky.

I could not see an outline of a triangular craft, as there was no moonlight in the sky, so it is also possible that there were three objects flying in formation. However, I believe that most likely they were all part of one object. The object was completely silent, and it was not directly overhead, although it was close to being so. It was flying at a fairly low altitude, well below where planes fly in the area. Any planes/helicopters flying even remotely close to where this object was are quite noisy and clearly heard. Again, this object was completely silent, and it was moving much faster than an aircraft (at any altitude).

I have lived near airport flight paths in Los Angeles for many years, but I have never seen anything remotely similar to this object. My wife also saw the object, and she recalls seeing an outline of a triangular craft. I have reviewed other reports from the NUFORC website, and the May 2003 report from Seattle, WA is very similar to my experience.
