NUFORC UFO Sighting 3153

Occurred: 1998-02-19 19:05 Local
Reported: 1998-02-19 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 15 secs.
No of observers: 1

Location: Fairfax, VA, USA

Shape: Triangle
Characteristics: Lights on object, Emitted beams, Aircraft nearby

In the northern sky i saw 3 white lights (small, as in the average aircraft seen at night) with a red, flashing light between the two crossing through the sky. There appeared to be a beam of light between 2 of the white lights.

I was sitting outside Fair Oaks Hospital and saw the following in the sky. There were 2 very distinct white lights and one other less distinct white light that formed a triangle shape. Counting the lights clockwise, with number one being the top: !: bright white; 2: dim white light (barely visable); 3: bright white. Between number 2 and 3, there was a small flashing red light. At first I thought it was an airplane because there are many aircraft in the area. However there was a stream of light between lights number 1 and 2 and a stream of light between lights number 1 and 3. In other words, there was no line for the bottom of the triangle. These streams of light I refer to, did not appear solid, but appeared as directed radiance between the other lights. It moved at the average speed that one witnesses in aircraft when near an airport. This is my second reporting of a sighting. I am very skeptical in regards to UFOs, but I cannot explain what I saw, especially the one I reported seeing in December. I expect this one was an earth-bound aircraft, but the one in December....well...I will never forget it nor the effect it has had on me.
