Location: Champaign, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 7 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
fast moving triangle with neon green light at each end, making no sound as it moved

The event took place a little after 10pm. I was leaving a restaurant and walking to my car. It was a clear night and there were a decent amount of stars out. I paused to look at the stars for a moment when I saw three lights in the sky. They were moving from a SE to NW direction. Because they stayed the exact same distance from each other, I quickly assessed that they were part of the same object. The lights themselves were a sort of neon greenish color and if you connected them, they would form a triangle. I couldn’t tell you for sure what the color of the object was but it “felt” like it was black.

I knew within seconds that what I was seeing was unlike anything I’d ever witnessed before. I knew within seconds that I was seeing a UFO. There is no doubt in my mind. It moved across the sky at an incredibly fast speed, way faster than anything man-made. It made no sound what-so-ever. It simply…..glided, is the way I would describe it. Because it was moving across the sky so fast, I probably only saw it for less than 10 seconds. Since then I have researched this a bit, and have found many other reports from people of the same thing. Big, black, fast moving triangles, and no, it was not a U.S. Stealth Bomber. This was faster and made no sound.
