Location: Doniphan, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular shaped UFO flies over observer's vehicle at relatively low altitude.

While traveling south on a rural highway, I noticed two red lights in the distance. At first, I believed the lights were mounted on a tower. The lights did not blink, so I thought it was an airplane.

Then this flying object made a movement, swift and swooping like the shape of an inverse rainbow. I knew then that the object was not an airplane.

I noticed the object then began to move east toward my vehicle. The driver could no longer see the object but I could as I leaned out the window.

Above the vehicle, I saw a triangle-shaped UFO with red lights at each corner. The triangular shape was not equilateral but more obtuse (i.e.; much longer than it was wide). I saw the craft fly directly over.

The UFO was so black it made the night sky seem a dark blue.

I could no longer see the craft once it passed over me and to the east.
