One multi-lighted triangle-shaped UFO sighted over West Des Moines, Iowa at 9:25 PM on 08/23/2011 by two people driving home.

One triangle-shaped airborne vehicle with what appeared to be approx 6 white, round "light-bulb" lights on the outside of each side with paralell similar lights on the inside of those. It seemed still for about 15 seconds .My husband and I were driving home from our son's house going west on University Ave. It was about 1000 - 2000 feet above the ground, approx 1 block west of Barnes and Noble Bookstore.When we tried to turn the car around to get a better look, we lost track of it and did not see it again.

My husband is a professional photographer, but did not have his camera on him and I am his studio manager at his business.We are both artistic: I also tap dance and I enjoy live jazz music when I can.
