Location: Russellville, AR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
Followed a craft and ended following two crafts that was just to fast to keep up with.

At first what I thought I was seeing a helicopter because it had three lights but then I noticed that there wasn't any flashing lights. So it caught my interest. The object was hovering and then started to move to my right after I noticed that it wasn't a helicopter. I was driving when I saw it so I just started following it. I didn't think it would move very fast but it started going so fast that the lights vanished in under a minute. While I was following one of the lights disappeared and then I could only see two lights. I believe it was because when I first spotted it I was seeing it from the side and as it moved I ended up behind the craft.

As I was following the craft, it seemed as if the whole thing turned over on it's back while it flown away from town. The lights on the craft changed from being horizontal to each other to being vertical and back to horizontal just before moving beyond seeing distance. Also, while I was following this first craft I s! aw my girlfriend that was in the car with me saw a different one. They were both headed in the same direction. The crafts was in the shape of a triangle but with rounded edges and it seemed to have a dark gray color to it. The lights were located at each end of the triangle and were halfway from the top and the bottom of the craft. The crafts also looked like they changed shape while turning over but they were too far to describe the shape it finally formed into.

Right after the little chase one of my headlights went out. It most likely wasn't from the sightings but I'd just thought I'd add that because I thought it was weird for it to burn out after that. Russellville has a lot of cops so I didn't drive over the speed limit chasing the crafts, I probably only drove around 40 mph at most. This is the second time I've seen anything like this but my first for this town.
