Reported: 11/18/2006 11:15:41 AM 11:15

Location: River Falls and Prescott (between; Hwy. 35), WI
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes

I was driving alone on Hwy 35 between River Falls and Prescott Wisconsin.

It was about 7:15pm (19:15) in the evening and the sky was pitch black already as it's almost winter.

I noticed a white light in the sky that was unusual. It was brighter than an airplane. While I was driving it seemed as though I was getting closer to it, and I could see that it was in fact three round, white lights that formed a triangle. It was locked in the sky as though it was stationary, and I wondered if it were a radio tower.

As I drove closer I could see it better. The three lights made a triangle where the point of the triangle was the top light, and two lights were below it geometrically. The lights were very close to each other.

As I got even nearer, I noticed that while the sky was black, I could make out a darker black in between and around the lights. The lights were definitely attatched to something that was darker than the night sky, although I couldn't make out that shape.

Unexpectedly, the three lights seemed to turn off, or go out, or even turn around. In their place was a single, smaller red light that was not as bright as the white lights. I could still see the darker black form, and it appeared the red light was attatched to it.

At this point, the light started to move away from me. It was no longer stationary. All I could see was the red light, and I watched as it flew away, slightly upwards, growing smaller and smaller until I couldn't see it anymore.

All of this lasted about 5 minutes.
