Location: Van Buren, AR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2-3 minutes
Football-field size triangular object--low and silent.

My son came into my bedroom around 9:30 pm, very excited, asking why I hadn't answered his phone call. I told him my phone was charging in the living room.

He told me that as he was driving to his grandfather's house, he noticed 3 lights, and at first thought they were military aircraft flying in formation. Then, he noticed something was odd with the lighting and took a closer look.

He stopped his truck and got out of the vehicle to observe a large triangular object. He described it as 2-3 football fields big. He said he was scared and his heart was racing. He said it was completely silent as it slowly passed overhead.

I talked to his grandfather this evening. His grandfather said when he arrived at his house he was excited and told him the entire story. I asked why he didn't get pics or video, but his reply was that he was too busy calling me, trying to get me to come outside so I could see it.

Today, my son tells me he can't believe what he saw and ! seems very reluctant to talk about it.
