Posted: 7/16/2006
Location: Jupiter, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3 minutes
During the 2001 Perseids meteor shower, my neighbors and I were on the roof of our condo building watching the "shooting stars". We noticed a large completely black triangle blocking out the stars, moving VERY SLOW. Nothing but black. We watched it move - ever so slowly - for several minutes. It then, while we were staring at it, completely disappeared. Vanished.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))

((NUFORC Note: In 2001, the Perseid Meteor Shower occurred on the night of August 12. We have amended the date above. PD))
