|Triangle Sighting in backyard around 12:30 am. Longer time than expected watching object.
I had more or less just arrived home from a friends , around midnight when I saw a dim light outside my window.
I was alone in the house , and I went out in to the backyard to look. Since I live far from an airport, I thought it might be a comet or satellite , until it quickly got much brighter and larger. Its size would be about that of a full moon. I noticed it had a long triangle shape though it was hard to see where the light was coming from on it.
Not idea how close it really was though.
It moved back and forth in the sky overhead for , sharply changing direction. So at this stage I was pretty certain it wasnt anything common.
Unfortunately I didn't have a camera available to take pictures.
After this it moved away into the sky, much like the way it came down.
I went in, checked the time, and wrote it down with what I saw on a piece of paper.
A bit subjectively, Though I would have estimated I was only watching for a short time around three or four minutes, according to my clock ,I was outside for about 20 minuites (I checked the time when I got home, and saw the light a very short time after).
Next day I also asked the neighbours , none who were awake at the time saw anything.
coincidentally , though one said that her dog sleeping in her bedroom went "nuts" around the same time.
I'd like to note that, I'm 17,a busy university science student ,and very "strong" sceptic.
I was quite unnerved by the clarity of what I saw, and I'd rather it didn't happen in the first place. Nevertheless, I'm still sure there could well be some explanation.
