Location: Denton, TX
Shape: Triangle
Duration:12-15 seconds
Triangle of lights. Very large object west of Denton. Sat still for 10 seconds before fading from view.

A friend and I were standing in my driveway talking when he noticed a formation of three lights roughly 3-7 miles west of us in the direction of Fort Worth. The lights sat perfectly still for around 10 seconds then slowly faded in unison.

The space between the lights was dark, indicating a solid object. Two of the lights were blueish-green while one of them had an orange tint to it. Altitude was hard to judge (probably around 2 miles). The object was in the area east-northeast of Texas motor speedway. There were no clouds and visibility was extremely clear. This object was huge. Far larger than any aircraft I know of.

My friend and I are somewhat knowledgeable on aircraft. Particularly fighter jets. We frequently attend airshows and have never seen an airborne object this size. I was reluctant to report this but upon recent investigation I have found a few similar reports. There is a small airfield named Alliance fairly close to where this took place but there is no question that this was FAR to large to be a commercial airliner.
