Location: Lashmeet, WV
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
I saw a gray hazy metallic triangle shaped object with 3 blue lights and an appearance of being transparent in form.

We live on top of a mountain in West Virginia. I was sitting in the yard with my husband watching one of my sons and a friend play basketball. Both boys stopped and started looking down the field toward a neighbors house. The friend pointed in that direction and said "What is that?" My husband and I got up and walked to where they were standing and we saw a triangle shaped object slowly coming in our direction. The day was beautiful, clear sky, no clouds. I am a artist and I can tell different shades of color. This triangle shaped object had 3 blue lights, different than the shade of blue of the sky. There was a light on each point of the triangle. The object was a gray hazy metallic color but appeared transparent in form. I could see the blue sky through this shape.

All four of us stood there with our mouths open. As the object came over top of us, it stopped for a few seconds. It was above us about the height of a 4 story building. I really felt like we were being looked at. Then in a flash it was gone, super fast. My son's comment was " I did not see what I just saw". My younger son was at a friends house playing. This friend was a good drawer. I called his mom and asked if the boys were outside and if so, did they see anything. If they did, please have her son draw what they saw and bring it to me. I did not give any information on what we saw. The boys came to the house with a drawing that was exactly what we saw.
