|Triangular shaped several white lights within
On my way to work before sunrise, stopped at traffic light heading south, from corner of eye noticed lights moving west to east. The airport is further south, so I figured it to be a standard aircraft.
I looked as it traveled, just above the horizon, above the traffic light aprrox. 1/2 mile away. I could not make out the outline, but appeared to be triangle shaped by the several interior circular static white lights.
I thought about it as I turned and headed east, " What the heck was that?" I asked myself. I only questioned it because there were no flashing navigational lights and if it was a standard aircraft heading towards the airport it would have to be moving at a serious rate of speed.
This craft was at a constant rate under 50 mph and vertical.
I don't know what it was and don't care to become obsessed with finding out. I feel it should be noted only to help someone else know they are not the only one to take notice and feel betrayed as I was.
I e-mailed one of our newspapers with the event but nerver heard back from them.
