Location: Santa Rosa, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:7 seconds
At approx. 9:40 pm 5/3/99, I was looking to the NW. sky, when I saw a perfect isocolese triangle with a large dimmly lit , amber light on each corner. I live near the Sonoma county airport, so I'm used to seeing low flying aircraft. This was not an aircraft. It was smaller than a jetliner but bigger than a commuterjet,flying at around 1500 feet at a high rate of speed(300mph?)NO sound at all! The object turned west and was gone as fast as it appeared.The sky was clear with a few scattered clouds,visibility was great.It was as if the object moved through the air effortlessly without friction.

The info for this space is as above in the brief description, because it was a brief encounter. I am 30 years of age,a tradesman,and was out feeding my dogs when this event occured.
