|On my way home from work tonight I saw a slow moving triangle-shaped craft with a white light in each of the three wing tips
Hi folks- Well, I saw a very unusual aircraft on my way home from work tonight. From a distance, driving east on Indiana 45, I saw a bright yellow light with a white light, not as bright, next to it [on the same craft] hovering in the sky. There were tiny red lights on top, none on the belly. As I rounded a bend [between Bloomington and New Unionville, Indiana] I saw that the craft was about 50 feet above treetop and crossing the road right to left, directly overhead. I pulled off to watch and noticed other vehicles behind me had also done so. There was no noise - I rolled down my window to listen - nothing. As the craft passed over my car, I got a good look at it against 'night sky light pollution' from Bloomington - it was triangle-shaped, with a white light in each of the three wing tips and appeared to be black in color. A mile or so down the road, the snow looked blown across the road like drifting. The rest of the roadway was clear. I thought "copter" at first, until I saw the thing. Not like any I had ever seen. It seemed like when motorists had pulled off to watch it flew away.
