Black Triangular Craft with Seven Dim Lights Sighted Over Spencerport, NY

The evening was unusually cool and very clear, so my husband and I decided to go out onto the back patio to enjoy some relief from the heat and relax while looking at the stars. We sat in our loungers watching the sky for about a 1/2 hour or so, but only saw the usual satillite or two, and a shooting star.

Then, just before we were getting ready to head in, I caught something out of the corner of my eye moving in the sky toward us from over our house, coming from the South East, headed North West. As I focused on it, I could see the outline of a black, triagular craft, with seven yellowish, very dim lights on the bottom. Three of the lights were along the bottom left, three along the bottom right and then one light at the tip. The body was very black against the sky and the underside lights looked just like round, recessed lighting you'd put in your house, but with the dimmer turned way down. It blended so well with the sky that had I not been staring straight up, I probably would not have seen it. As it moved, the bottom of the craft seemed to always be facing us, since you could not see any depth to it...it looked very thin and flat.

At this point, I started pointing up and yelling for my husband to look ...he did and to my surprise, he saw exactly what I did...a big, black triangle, flying quite low, at what appeared to be just a few thousand feet. It made absolutely no noise and moved very smoothly like a glider through the sky. It came from over the front of our house, passed over our backyard and then disappeared as it moved behind the trees at the back of our property. As for the speed, it was moving moderately fast, but slow enough that we were able to view it for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.

I had seen something very strange in the sky many years ago, but was alone at the time and had no one with me in order to do a "reality" check. This time, though, I could not believe that my husband was actually seeing the same thing that I was. Those few minutes were very surreal. The whole experience was quite exciting, yet very disquieting at the same time -- what was it that we saw????? My husband and I are both well educated, respected technical professionals in our mid-30s, with steady jobs, a stable home life and we own our home. We very rarely drink, if ever, and do not do drugs.
