Location: Huntsville, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
Three yellow lights surrounding a central red light were seen on a black, presumably triangular shape flying low and silently.

As I was driving home from a friend’s house just after 4:00 am during the month of March in 2013, I observed an event traveling extremely low (just above the trees) and silently above my car. I proceeded to stop my car to watch the event. The location was Huntsville, Alabama on Whitesburg Drive between Byrd Spring and Four Mile Post Road.

I clearly observed three yellow-white lights in a triangular formation around a central red light. They were on an object (presumably triangular, though I did not have time to discern a clear outline) that I could observe because there were no stars visible between the lights.

There was absolutely no sound associated with the event, and I presume it could not have been any sort of conventional aircraft due to this fact and the altitude of flight (again, just above the trees on the corner at which I stopped).

The event passed slowly overhead until it passed out of view. I exited my car to look, but I could no longer see the event or any evidence of its passing. Although I cannot estimate the size of the event too accurately, it was well over twenty feet across by my best guess.

As a note, I do not tend to acknowledge the existence of extraterrestrials here on Earth, and I know of no sort of powered flight that could run so low and silently. This is why I refer to this phenomenon as an “event” rather than a “craft” or “object.” I can provide no explanation as to the cause of this event, however.

I am currently a student studying fields of natural sciences, so I tend to favor no explanation rather than one that is fantastical in my opinion. I am somewhat familiar with what I would categorize as “U.F.O. lore,” but I do not treat it as fact. I have never used illegal drugs, and I was neither on prescription medication nor was I intoxicated at the time of this event. This was my first and only encounter with an event of this type.
