Duration:2 min.
While on the roof of a 10 story building, looking north/east, I saw what appeared to be a trangle object flying very slow, then increase speed to something faster then I have ever seen or heard of.

I am a police officer in Fresno, Cal. I was on top of a 10 story building taking a report when I looked up to see our police chopper fly by.

When I started to look down at my report, I noticed what appeared to be a trangle flying object. It was about 10,000 feet up and about 2-3 miles away. It was dusk and I could seen orange/red color lights flicker, not flash, on each of the trangle tips. There appeared to be some sort of orange light or glow in the cender of the bottom. I could not see the top.

I could not see the color of the object. It appeared to move very slow, slower then a normal plane.

Then, all of a sudden, the object increased its speed almost instantly, shot straight up and out of sight in about 1-2 seconds.

I also had seen something like this several years ago in the same city, but was too busy to worry about it then.
