Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
Triangle UFO witnessed in Kent, Washinton at about 1am on Wednesday morning, 8/11/10.

Quiet/Silent UFO with 3 glowing amber lights in a triangle formation and one glowing amber light between the two rear amber lights. The UFO also has 2 bright white strobe lights down the middle of the triangle at opposing ends.

On Wednesday at about 1am, August 11, 2010, I was getting out of my truck at work and quickly glanced at an aircraft flying overhead at a low altitude from the south heading toward the north. At first, I thought that it was a commercial jet, yet as I took a moment to focus my gaze, I realized that there was something unusual about it. I see commercial jets and helicopters flying over head at times, but I didn’t hear any sound from this flying object and that the lights displayed didn’t fit the description of a plane or helicopter that I’ve seen before. The UFO travelled at a steady pace similar to a commercial jet until it faded in the distance. I witnessed this UFO cross overhead from the south heading toward the north for about 10 seconds until it was out of my sight. I would say that looking north, the UFO was heading north with a slight 10-20 degrees toward the northwest.

Other than witnessing the UFO, I did notice a helicopter passing overhead shortly before this sighting. As I witnessed the UFO, the helicopter appeared further north and from the west. It stopped in the direction the UFO was heading. The UFO continued north past the helicopter out of my sight while the helicopter slowly followed it until it too was out of my sight.
