Location: Manhasset (Long Island), NY
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4 minutes
object was moving away in a westerly direction. very slowly and at times appeared to be standing still. very large and appeared triangular. from inside the car it took up entire length of windshield. a brilliant white light at each end. a total of two. the object made no sound.

you could not help but notice the object because of its enormous size. it was flying very low. from inside the car it appeared to almost be hovering over the tree tops, was first observed to my left and when the car turned where the object was in front of me, it took up the entire length of the windshield and then was moving very very slowly in a westerly direction away from me. was very dark in color. almost blackish with these brilliant white lights covering the extreme tips of each end. there were no other visible lights yet the object seemed to glow while maintaining its darkness. very three dimensional. the word dense comes to mind. could not see the front of it but the back extended from about a quarter of the way in from the tips, protruded behind it to a point. it was flat on top. the night was still and very quiet. I had my windows open because it was very warm outside. there was no sound at all to be heard.
