Duration: 3 seconds
|I saw a craft moving at an incredible speed, from north to south. The object was lit on it's underside, but only in a pattern of a rod. I could tell it had shape outside of the lights appearing on its underside. I witnessed the object for a duration of about 3 seconds before it disappeared, the lights appearing on it were lime green in color and I estimate it flew at about 30,000 feet.
It was about 8:38pm CST, on Thursday April 27 when I witnessed the object. I met a girlfriend of mine in the parking lot of my apartment complex, and while she was talking with my best friends fiance(they also live in my complex) I witnessed a triangular object moving at incredible speed from the north to south. The object was lit on its underside in the shape of a rod, but I could make out a black triangular shape outside of the lit area. I could see the object moving for about 3 seconds, then it seemed to just disappear. There was no clouds in the area to hide in, so where it went is beyond me. The speed was incredible, in the couple of seconds I witnessed it it covered a good portion of the sky. To compare in speed, I witnessed the space shuttle coming back in orbit a couple of months ago, it took about 30-35 seconds to cross the horizon. If this object would have stayed visible it would have cleared the horizon in less than 10 seconds. I was fully expecting to hear a sonic boom. My best guess of the size of the object is about 3 times of the size of a 727(in comparison to a 727 flying at 30,000 feet, like this object appeared to be flying at). It definitely dodn't appear to be a meteor, becuase of the color, size, direction of movement(it moved in a staight line). It was definitely a strange site.hhhhhhhhhhhhhh
