MUFON report /Trucker reports hovering triangle over Interstate

A tractor-trailer driver called to report that he was driving north on Interstate 81 at approx. 21:00 hours when he saw what appeared to be three bright reddish lights ahead of him in the sky. He drove for several minutes noting that the object appeared to be hovering as it drew closer. He arrived at a point where he could safely pull off the interstate and did so, exited his truck and watched the strange object . He described the object as a dark triangular object, backlit by the bright sky(nearly full moon) with three large reddish orange lights affixed to each point. The object was hovering at some 45 degrees to his position and was the relative size of a golfball at arm's length. He described the object as slowly rotating but making no other discernable movements. After several more minutes, the object simply disappeared. The witness is an Air Force veteran, therefore a trained witness and quite adamant that this was no conventional aircraft.
