Small orange triangle making impossible high speed maneuvers

As written by my son who was the witness of this incident.

At approximately 0145 the morning of July 17, 2007, I witnessed an object traveling at great speed move west to east across the nights sky.

This object would then come to a complete stop without slowing down, turn 90 degrees, and move north to south at a slow speed. The object would pick up speed, and then would start making very tight, perfect spirals while traveling very fast. In the center of the spiral, this object came to a complete stop again, turned 90 degrees, and then head east to west at a slow speed, then disappeared. It did this a few times while I observed this object for about 4 minutes.

The object was made up of three orange lights that formed a small triangle. The maneuvers I witnessed were things that I have never seen before. The high rate of speed, the sudden complete stops, the 90 degree turns, and the tight, perfect spirals led me to believe that what I saw was a UFO.
