Date of Sighting: June 17, 2008
Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 28, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 30 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Fairport, New York (See Map)
Latitude: 43.07 Degrees North
Longitude: 77.43 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: A Few Clouds Were Reported at 3,400 Feet, Skies Were Mostly Cloudy (Broken Cloud) at 7,500 Feet and Overcast at 10,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the Southwest at 9 MPH. Rain Had Been Falling Earlier.

Description: The object appeared to be triangle shaped with six or more brightly colored blue and white lights on the underside. The object rapidly moved left then right, then away, back to the right and then disappeared. (The object disappeared in mid-air.) I was unable to determine the size based on sight. No reports of the object appeared in the local media. The object emitted no sound.

Comments: The witness has sketched a commonly reported airborne object. The one exception is the color of lights on the underside. Most witnesses report that the lights are one color or absent. Given that overcast skies were reported at the time of the sighting, the object was likely flying quite low. (See weather above.)
