|Low-flying, dark triangle seen over Easton, PA
On April 30, 2016, at approximately 23:50, a dark, triangular shaped object, was seen by my brother and I, flying slowly, approximately 500 ft. above the treetops. Its distance was only about 2 miles from where we had sighted it, flying over the West Ward of the city. I could only guess at the size of the craft, possibly being 70-75 ft. from tip to tip of the wingspan.
When first noticed, the bright-white lights on its underside were facing us, as it was banking 90 degrees on its port side. There were at least four, but more probably six lights, all white and very bright.
When I had first spotted it, the aircraft was flying in an easterly direction in this 90 degree position, then it hooked sharply and headed NNW, immediately leveling out its flight after completing the turn. I believe one red and one green, slow-flashing light was positioned respectively on the left and right wing-tops as it headed away from us.
The total time of observation was about 30 seconds.
I've never seen a craft of this size move this slow, traveling this low and making such an immediate hard turn. Personally, I wouldn't doubt if this was a military aircraft, as it was very exotic to me, but didn't strike me as being non-terrestrial. Some people that I have described the sighting to, believe it may have been a military drone. Possibly, of the TR-3 family.
