|A large triangular shaped object travelling from NE to SW at approx. 2,000 ft.
My friend and I were travelling in a Westerly direction when she spotted a bright object to the NE. We stopped and observed it traversing the sky from the NE to the SW. It was triangular shaped with a light at each apex. I'm guessing that it was at approx. 2,000 feet because I saw a small private acft fly under it. If my estimate in distance is correct, than this thing had to be the size of a football field. The sky was clear and their was a decent amount of ambient light. The one thing that struck me as really strange was that as soon as it flew out of sight beyong the treeline, we then saw 2 Blackhawk helicopters flying back from the opposite direction, travelling SW to NE at treetop level. I was a naval aircrewman, so I know what I'm talking about when it comes to aircraft, and I've never seen any configuration like it before.
