Location: Woodbury, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
Triagular aircraft with blue/pink lights arranged into a triangle at the base, blinking every second, quiet & hovering low in the sky.

Witnessed a triangular flying object by looking out a window from home. At first I noticed very discrete, bright, ping-pong size alternating blue and pink "light bulbs" arranged into a large triangle sitting on the same plane, blinking every second. First I was looking at the intensity of the lights, the blinking frequency, the color and then the light position for about 5 seconds. I was then trying to see a "bigger picture" beyond just the lights. By relying on those blinking lights and a few sparse smaller white light bulbs scattered around that I believe were probably turned on at a later time, I vaguely saw (presumably) the bottom/base of an aircraft. The size was big enough to cover a significant portion of the sky view from my window, I assume the flying object was hovering pretty low and that's why I could see the individual light bulbs so clearly. It was quiet, no noise. It really took me a while (7 sec at least) to realize what ! I think I saw. After that moment, I've never seen anything even close (at night time, it's pretty dark outside) to what I encountered during that short moment of witnessing. It was a close encounter from naked eyes.
