Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Jacksonville, AR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Luminious at a distance, very fire like ( massive blaze, orangish-red glow, turning amber up close. Very quiet. Triangular shape,

A triangular shaped object, first seen at 25-30 miles away, first assumed to be a forest fire or C-130 crash. Very bright at this distance, seemed to lessen in intensity the nearer we got. Still, bright enough for us to assume it was a monstrous fire ( from C-130 Crash, forest fire). Nearing the craft, it took on this triangular shape, perfect in symmetry, and eac corner of the triangle was luminious, a bright amber glow. These amber lights seemed to emit into alternating shapes, from straight, to something like wings of an insect. A clear night, could see the stars surrounding the craft. No sound; hovered entirely motionless; soundless, except for very light humming. We left at my dad's urgency!! We knew he meant business when he told my mother to drive away!
