Location: Newport News, VA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangle craft with flashing red light flew out of a storm over newport news int'l airport VA.

During a lightning storm we saw a bright light coming from the storm. At first we thought it was a star but after a few seconds we realized it was moving. So we believed it was a plane that was landing at the nearby airport. But it kept moving even avoiding lightning bolts in the sky.

As it flew right past us we saw that it was shaped like a triangle. it had a single white light on it's right wing and and it had a flashing red light in the center. We lost sight of it after it flew behind trees.
