Triangle UFO near Gulfport, MS 12/31/97

While walking her dog near the Gulfport airport, a woman noticed an isosceles triangular object high in the sky beyond a nearby line of pine trees. The underside of the object was covered in bluish-white lights. She began to run toward the trees, intending to get a better look on the far side, but the lights on the object immediately extinguished. She was then unable to see the object in the night sky. Distance from the witness and altitude were undetermined. Duration of the event was about 45 seconds.
