Duration:1 minute
Three reddish lights in a triangle formation appeared in the sky and moved north to south slowly and quietly until out of sight

It was New Years night 2016 and my wife daughter and I went outside to bang pots and pans to bring in the new year. It's a tradition in our house.

We banged pots and pans for a few seconds until we felt we brought the new year in. We could here fireworks and caught glimpses of a few. When we all heard a loud boom. It sounded like a bomb in the distance. It was strange enough sound I made comments of a terrorist attack. I now think it was the sound of a ufo entering our airspace, like a sonic boom. I only think that cause as we are staring up in the sky, when literally out of no where three lights in a triangle formation appeared, what seemed like only 1000 ft in the sky and slightly to our west. The lights were pinkish red to almost a purple color that were bright and not of normal aircraft navagation light colors. They were in a perfect triangle formation. We all had to take a second to process what we were seeing. When then realized this was out of the ord! inary and became very excited. I in particular knew we were witnessing a ufo.

It began to move slowly and quietly from north to a southernly direction. I then realized I had my phone and pulled up my camera and began recording. We watched in awe for at least 20 seconds before I began recording and the craft began to move, before I started recording. My wife kept insinuating they were drones. They were to far apart and would have been some skilled drone pilots. I believe I could have gotten better footage if I was prepared for such an unexpected event but nonetheless I did capture on camera. We watched until it slowly went out of sight.

My family and I have no doubt we witnessed a ufo, and maybe the first of 2016.
