Location: Miamisburg, OH
Shape: Triangle
Duration: ~10 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
A small, triangular object that was orange; it reminded me of a flame; was moving at a slow steady pace and appeared low and close.

I was in my SUV heading out to a convenience store it was about 9:15 pm. I live in a cul-de-sac, so I had turned out of the circle and was headed straight to a dead end where you have to turn right or left onto another street. I stopped at the stop sign and right in front of me I saw an orange kind of triangular shape that almost reminded me of a flame. At first I just watched it, trying to figure out what it wasÖ Iíd never seen anything like it. It wasnít big, so I doubt it was a UFO. It was all light, but it wasnít casting light. It might have been more like a very vague circle in the center but a peak on the top and a tail trailing it. It was moving at a slow speed but was constantly moving forward. I finally thought to grab my phone to take a picture, but the picture turned out terrible. It went behind a tree, then I could see it again, then it was blocked by a tree.

I turned the opposite way of where I intended to drive just to follow it. I was trying to get a picture, but by the time I got to the last tree it was behind, it was gone. I kept driving ahead looking for it. I even went back home and picked up my daughter (26 years old) and drove around looking for it.

It was just the strangest thing Iíve ever seen. It was higher than the top of my SUV, but seemed to be very close. It didnít make any noise. It reminded me of a flickering flame. It was maybe two foot? It was not big.

I can see it clearly in my mind, but itís so hard to describe. An orange, almost triangular, light that reminded me of a flickering candle. It was solid orange. I donít believe in supernatural or anything, but it really reminded me more of an entity than a spacecraft.

I am 54 years old, female. I have a Masterís degree in education. Iíve taught Middle School ELA for the last 30 years. Most 8th grade, but this year Iím teaching 6th grade. Iím married. My husband came here from Macedonia Ė I met him when heíd been in the US for a year. Weíve been married 24 years in October. He is a family physician. I have two daughters Ė a 26 year old daughter who is currently working toward a Masterís degree in Environmental Science. My other daughter is an 8th grader.

We live in a development and had our house built about 10 years ago.

There are a couple of boys that would fly these planes around. That was the first thing I thought about when I saw this thing. It wasnít shaped like a plane, however, or a drone. It was just a triangular, orange, light. And, when I left my house and drove down out of the Cul-de-sac, there was no one else outside. It was dark and a school night.

Thatís it. It really bothers me wondering what I saw. If you do know of something that resembles what I described that could explain it, I would really appreciate it if youíd tell me. Iím not sure why it bothers me, except that it was so unusualÖ.
