Duration: 05 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Amber lit triangle passes above Ankeny,IA.

I was sitting out on my back deck watching the meteor shower that was just starting in my area. This was at 12:10am on the 21 of October.

As I was laying on my back looking up at the stars I seen a movement, or blur. It was a faint gray streak or something. I'm not sure. As I was looked I noticed a very dim amber light, as I focused more; I seen 9-10 very dim amber lights in the shape of a ">".I couldn't believe what I had seen so I sat up, and watched it pass through the sky right above me.

As I sat in disbelief, I listened for any noises that might follow what I just seen. Nothing followed. Not a single peep of noise. The lights passed by pretty quickly, lasting about 5-6 seconds.

It seemed to very close, or very large. But no noise at all. Just smooth steady and fast!
