Location: Moretown, VT
Shape: Diamond
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Driving home after work and saw a large low-flying object with several yellow lights fly over my head.

As I approached Moretown, heading north on Rte 100 I saw a yellowish light in the distance. At first I thought it was the top of a radio tower on top of a hill somewhere.

As I got closer to town I realized there is no tower anywhere close by. I was getting closer to the object and I could make it out better as I kept driving. When I got into Moretown, I could tell that the object was moving very slowly through the sky, only about 300 feet above the ground.

I started driving up the hill to my home and when I got to the top and the view wasn't obscured by trees I pulled over and opened my window. The object was flying very low yet I could not hear any noise.

The shape was almost diamond-like or trapezoidal. It almost looked like 2 helicopters were flying one in front of the other, really close, but I would have been able to hear them so close to the ground. It was a big dark object but it had several yellow lights underneath and also a red light.

It kept flying and eventually flew over the area of my car.

Soon I lost sight of it over the trees.

I got home and searched online and someone reported a similar sighting about a couple days ago over interstate 91.
