Location: Phillipsburg, NJ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
Flying object with 3 lights. One at each end . Triangular shape

While taking out the garbage, My girfriend spoted what seem like a plane in the sky going in circles. The Object had 3 lights one at each end. we thought it was a plane, but then it began doing arial acrobatics. Loops, suddendly drops comming very close to the ground. This is a very redidential area and the nearest airport is 15-20 miles away. It was comming so low to the ground, we were scared for our lives.

After several loops and drops and circles at very high speeds. Again on a residential Area. At one point it seemed that it was comming toward us, then suddenly made a sharp left (my right) and took off so fast. I ran to see the direcction in which went but it was too fast to keep up at night.

This object came within 50 to 100 feet of the ground when performing the straight down drops. I keep thinking about the sound that emmited, but I can't make it out. Nothing i heard before.
