|Triangular object with faint yellow-orange lights on irregular flight path hovered, then descended rapidly and observed as cylindrical
Took dog outside for his bathroom break and noticed a strange object overhead on a path from Dallas to Irving (east to west). At first I thought it was perhaps the space station, as this is sometimes observed just after dark on a clear night. However, this object had an irregular flight path and came to a complete stop and hovered. When first sighted, the object appeared triangular with faint yellow-orange lights. After hovering for a moment, the object suddenly and sharply began to move my direction in a descent and for a brief moment I could observe a large dark cylindrical object dotted with faint yellow-orange lights. The object appeared to ascend, at which point it became faint again. The object then moved in a SW direction and was barely visible after another 30 seconds. The entire event lasted about 3 to 4 minutes and the object traveled about 15 miles in the final 30 seconds, not including elevation changes. The object made no detectable soun! d.
