Viewed a light yellowish-orange somewhat translucent triangular-shape object with an undulating light.

While lying on our picnic table in our backyard watching the sky around 11:00 PM in late February in 1997, my husband and I suddenly sat up when seeing a light yellowish-orange triangular-shape object in the sky moving from north to south. The object appeared somewhat translucent with an undulating light which changed colors (yellowish, whitish, orangeish) as the light moved in what appeared to be a counter-clockwise direction inside around the margins of the object. The object looked smooth and rounded with no sharp edges or projections.

We heard no sound and it moved rapidly and quietly through the sky. We observed it for probably less than 30 seconds.

My husband and I both hold college degrees, traveled extensively around the world, lived in Asia for five years, and never experienced an event like this.

My husband served six years in the military and is familiar with aircraft.
