A triangular shape, Pie Shape with lights on sides that had no sound and was still until it darted off.

The sighting was in 1983, some time towards the end of March. I was walking home from my then girlfriend's house. I would say it was around 9:30 pm
I took a short-cut over a hill, it was an open field at the time, at the top of the hill I heard helicopters, that's what made me look up.

There were 2 helicopters circling and above them was a triangular shaped object, it was thick, like a piece of pie with lights around the edges.
I watched for a while, the triangle didn't move, I started walking home again and but I kept looking back to watch.

I stopped at the park and watched again for a while. Then 3 Jets whooshed in and the “ship” shot off to the North West remarkably fast. For the remainder of the walk I didn't see again until I reached the peak of High Street and I saw it off in the distance, it seemed to be higher and farther away than before. I didn't see and other planes or helicopters in the sky.

When I got home I went upstairs to the back bedroom and looked out the window, (my sisters room). I could see it but is was far away. I went to my parents bedroom and got binoculars out of my father's closet. I could see it pretty clearly.

I'm not sure what happened next, I don't remember if it took off or if I fell asleep. It's sort of a blank spot in my mind.
