Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4 minutes
I was driving to the store and when I turned onto county line road, I saw a huge triangle shape /_\ just like that,, In the middle there were red, blue,and white lights that seem to fill up all of the middle and the lights were all together..It was very bright and very big,, it was a ways above the tree tops and was lowering so I pulled onto a side road to get a better look but just as it was reaching the tops of the trees,,it was gone...also the shape had a red light on each of the three points...I wrote to the news channel here to see if anyone knew what it was but I never got a response...It was very bright and very big so I know I cant be the only one saw it..also it was a clear , warm night and I did not hear any noise but it looked like it was about 2 miles away
