Location: Louisville, KY
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30-60 seconds
Slow moving dark colored triangular object with no lights or sound moving west and low in night sky.

I work as a security officer at a building in Louisville. I was outside driving the parking lot in the patrol vehicle, when I happened to look up and spot an object, triangular in shape, but rounded at the corners, moving across the sky very slowly. There was no noise from the object, nor any lights emitting from it. It was 11:45pm and the sky was partly cloudy. I could see a few small clouds in the sky near the object, and could determine that the object was not a cloud as it was moving slightly faster than the surrounding clouds. At night in the city, clouds have an orange color at the bottoms as the street lights of the city reflect off of them. The object however didn’t have the same coloration at the bottom. It was of a darker grey color at the bottom, with a lighter gray color on the top. I was viewing this object at its left side.

My patrol vehicle was facing west, and the object was moving east along with the clouds. The object did not ! have a shiny surface from what I could see. As far as the size of the object, it was at least the size of 5 school buses, maybe a bit larger. It was very low in the sky and I could tell it was big. I asked our camera operator in the dispatch office to see if they could get the object on camera, unfortunately they were not looking at the same direction as I was, and therefore I was the only witness. The entire sighting lasted somewhere between 30 to 60 seconds. It continued to head west until out of view. I am still excited over this sighting even after nearly 90 minutes after the fact.

I truly hope someone else in the area saw this thing. I have seen plenty of helicopters, planes, and satellites in the sky at night move across the sky. This thing was none of those.
