Man witnesses peculiar, orange-colored, triangular object against the night sky.

Telephoned Report: A man called to report having witnessed a very peculiar, triangular-shaped craft, as it flew along a nearby river.

The witness reported that he awoke from sleep, and looked out the north-facing window of his residence at approximately 0250 hrs.. After a short period of time, he witnessed a very peculiar, triangular-shaped object, that was covered with many tiny orange lights. The net effect of the lights was to give the object an overall, distinctly orange color.

He added that the object appeared to be an equilateral triangle, and its apparent size, from his vantage point, he thought would have been slightly smaller than the apparent size of a full Moon in the night sky.

The object slowly moved out of his sight to the east, after he had witnessed it for an estimated two minutes.
