My friend and I were bow fishing near Dalbow Rd., off of Highway 79, when we got lost following the stream, moving to different landmarks.

Having no idea where we are, we wait for a train and follow the noise because we had lost our internal compasses by that point and figured we'd follow the tracks back to the road. We ended up finding a road (had to cross a stream, I got soaked).

We followed this road left and found a little, tiny house. Then about a quarter mile up we found the actual house, we saw who must've been the owner leave about 5 minutes before we got on the road. We turned around and we jogged the other direction.

It wasn't completely dark yet, but just about. We saw three orange lights in a triangle formation. There were some towers out there with lights on them and stars, but this was neither. It was extremely close to us, maybe 1-200ft away and 50ft into the air. It wasn't moving at all and was a hundred or so feet long.

There was a hazy body in between the three lights. Looked like it blended in with the black/purple part of the sky that it was inhabiting. One light especially would dim and brighten randomly. It got intensely bright two times.

We took our eyes off of it while we were running and it was gone when we looked again.
