My girlfriend "J" and I were watching the meteor shower tonight on our rooftop patio in downtown San Rafael. We're about 20 miles north of San Francisco and it's a fairly urban area, so light pollution is fairly high. There was no moon tonight so we had a better view of the stars than usual. We were stretched out on two lounge chairs, with a blanket over us. We weren't under the influence of any drugs, though I had finished about half a pint of Guinness. I had a mini mag lite flashlight with me and my binoculars. We weren't seeing many meteorites, so out of boredom I had been swinging the flashlight beam around into the sky in big sweeps. I got up and I got a few steps away when "J" started yelling "UFO! UFO!" I started looking up and around and a couple seconds later I spotted a dark triangular shape with rounded corners moving quickly across the sky, from approximately North to South, more or less right above us. It had a small red circle in each corner, and was completely silent. I said "hand me the binoculars! Hand me the binoculars!" I was too dumbstruck to look away to grab them, eventhough "J" was holding them out to me (her eyes also locked on the triangle). I watched it for about 4 or 5 seconds until it disappeared in the haze of light pollution to the south. As far as our backgrounds, we are both in our early thirties. I work at a video game studio and she is an independent web designer. I'm pretty agnostic when it comes to inexplicable phenomena, but pretty much rule out interstellar travel, aliens walking among us, etc etc. But this crazy thing tonight was definitely, definitely, definitely nothing like anything I've ever seen before! We are both pretty stunned right now.
Investigator's Notes: The witness referred to his sighting as a "UFO," but in subsequent conversations he believes that what he saw could have been a secret military craft. (This shows that he is not predisposed to looking for and identifying UFOs in the sky when more conventional explanations can be made.) My feeling is that these flying triangles are military, but my feeling is an opinion and not based on facts.
