Location: Lawrence, KS
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Very bright, white light flashing, triangular object moving extreme distances instantaneously

A group of us were watching the Perseids Meteor Shower.

The object appeared in the distance, as I pointed it out, it blinked brightly and disappeared. It reappeared a few seconds later in much different part of the sky and continued to flash brightly, disappear and then reappear, and flash. We were unable to make out the shape. This went on for a few minutes.

Then the object appeared directly overhead moving at a very fast speed. We could see the it was of triangular in shape, it left a light tracer behind it as it was moving above us, then flashed a VERY BRIGHT white light and vanished, never to been seen for the rest of the night. At no point was any noise heard. The object's flashing was at least 10x brighter than any meteors seen that night/morning.
