Sighting Reports 2009

Two See Airborne Triangular Object With Lights

Date of Sighting: February 17, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10 PM EST
Location of Sighting: Marlinton, West Virginia

Description: I went into one of our local gas stations and when I came out of the store I looked up into the sky and to the south I noticed an unusually bright object. I didn't think much of it at first except that it was much brighter than any star. I walked to the vehicle and the object went out of view behind the roof of a building, but when I got into the vehicle, I looked out of the right side and the object was in view again over top of the building. I told my sister to look at this thing. We started driving toward the south into our small town and the object was slowly moving toward the town. As we were driving along, the object split from one large white light into two smaller white lights. I told my sister to turn left and we proceeded across the bridge into main street of our town, as I was watching the object the two white lights turned to red and began to blink in a very fast pattern. We were traveling down main street I noticed the red light on the left side of this object turned blue. We turned the corner at my mother's restaurant and parked in the lot. I got out and was looking up at the object which was now almost directly above me. I then noticed that there were three lights which formed a triangular pattern, with the point at the back which had a white light on it. The two front lights were the only ones flashing red and blue. The object just hovered in place for about a few seconds. It was up in the sky about the height of a seven or eight story building. It started moving slowly forward making no sound at all. While it was hovering, it had no sound at all. When it started moving forward, all three lights changed to white and it started picking up speed moving toward the north. My sister and I got back into the vehicle and started traveling up the road to catch up with it again. We went up on top of the hill and pulled off in a lot beside the road. We could see that the object had gained altitude and was moving behind the clouds. We could see the flashing of the object as it moved into the clouds and then it disappeared.

Note: This is a typical description of an airborne triangular shaped object. The object hovers, moves slow, and emits no sound. In this case the lights blinked and switched colors.
