Posted: 8/7/2007
Location: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
Stationary triangle shaped light seen over Ft. Lauderdale beach area. Seen east (away from the sea). Estimated altitude 3,000 feet.

At about 9:15 PM (23:15 hrs.), I and other two witnesses (wife and nephew) saw a bright white-yellow triangle shaped light (brighter than any star or planet at that time in the sky (as an amateur astronomer, I am familiar with the position of major stars and planets for that date in the sky). The light maintained its position for about 15 minutes and later disappeared. No aircraft navigation lights were observed, and no sound was heard from the object ( I have a degree in aeronautics, and I am familiar with most military and commercial aircraft configurations).
