Location: Saint Simons Island, GA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10-15 seconds
Two fast, silent, red-orange triangles over St. Simons Island, Georgia.

One very bright orange triangle with an exhaust-trail that looked like a small flame flew across the sky: the triangle appeared about half the size of a dime held at arm's length. The vehicle was flying without sound from East-South-East to North-North-West.

About 5 seconds later an identical vehicle followed the first on the same flight path, and they flew across half the sky in 10 seconds, before a building obscured them.

The triangles were as bright as a flashlight, which is what made me look up to the sky to see them.


Date error on prior report: please correct year to 2016 (not 2017).
