Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Dark Triangle with 2 lights seen traveling towards thunderstorms

I'm not sure of the date, I know if happened during this week, and near the middle of it.

I was stopped at a stop light and something caught my eye as I turned the corner. I slowed to stop in the middle of the road (it was 4:45, no one was out). I looked up and saw a large dark triangle in the sky. It was pointed north east and had a green light on one of the rear angles, and a red on the other. There was no light on the front, although there did look like there could be one (perhpas it's just because I would expect there to be).

I looked at the object for what seemed to be the longest time. I'm not really sure how long exactly. I remember eventually looking away, after what seemed in my head to be the awhile, and seeing lights coming up behind me. The object had been motionless when I initially saw it, but now when I looked back up the object was slowly flying north east into an area of a thunderstorm (well at least clouds with lightning) and eventually disappeared into the clouds.
