Location: Chico, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 seconds
Observed flying triangle with five orange lights as it flew silently and slowly in an eastwardly direction over city.

Shortly after midnight I witnessed one large triangle-shaped craft/object fly silently over Chico State University almost directly overhead from where I was standing. The object was visable as it flew through the low, blowing, broken overcast. Five orange lights were visable running around the circumference of the object, none were particularly bright. I would estimate its altitude was between 1,500-3000 feet, and its speed between 50-80 mph. (quite slow) The direction of travel was east.
