Location: Sioux Falls, SD
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
Triangle object without colored or blinking lights, shortly later a bright shere shaped object was scene.

I was eastbound on 57th Street and notice a small group of extremely bright lights, I was intrigued because there are no tall buildings in the area to have these lights attached and they were extrememly bright like stadium lights. As I approached closer, I noticed the lights were attached to a triangular shaped object and it appeared quite large and the lights were solid white lights at each tip of a triangle. The object appeared to be hovering as it didn't seem to move for a long time, it then seemed to rotate and slowly moved north and increased speed in a northbound direction. There were no colored and/or blinking lights visible on the craft, only the solid extremely bright white lights. I tried to follow the north bound path on Marion road but soon lost sight of it. I continued to travel north hoping to see it again and as I approached 26th St and Marion road intersection I saw what appeared to be a single white sphere come straight down from the sky and appeared as if it would have collided with the earth. It was northeast of my location but I was not able to judge it's distance from me. The sphere appeared small but extremely bright. I contacted the police department at 7:40 PM to see if anyone else had called in anything out of the ordinary and as of that moment they had no other calls regarding this but they would keep it in mind if anything came up.
