Posted: 1/11/2002
Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Very bright, firm triangular formation of lights -- solid, hanging and moving silently, 100 feet above the building.

I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I was stone cold sober, awake and lucid, and I know the following event was real.

Later this evening, aprox. 10:05 pm - Jan, 2, 2002...

I was heading into Waikiki on Punahou street -- many buildings ahead of me -- above the Pan Am building 3, maybe 4 blocks away, I saw a huge triangular formation of extremely bright, white lights. Very clearly!!! They made the following shape; [example: below] * * * * * * * * Though it was facing more horizontal (thiner on the leading edge) than the limits of my typed diagram will allow.

((NUFORC Note: The pattern did not survive transferring to the database. ))

Immediately I studied it closely to be sure of what I was seeing. My two sons were in the car with me and saw it also! I was driving toward it, but the end of the road came and I had to turn the corner. Before I lost sight of it, it was moving, hovering gently above the buildings -- its left wing dipped slightly and the nose pivioting [the lights held formation solid and firm -- it was a solid object!!!) out to sea.

By the time I got through traffic, to its exact location, it was gone -- vanished. Its lights and its size (slightly larger than the building's rooftop) were so obviously unlike any other kind of aircraft, period! When I arrived to the spot there were no lights, aircraft, crowds, promotinal events... nothing else that could have been mistaken for what I saw.

This was real. It wasn't my imagination. The object was soild and obvious!!! From this day forword, at least I will know!!! I have seen solid physical evidence myself.

I called the police, the FAA, the airport (was it too low for radar) in hopes of confirmation from others who may have seen it, with no results. I was finally led to a number to the University of Hawaii -- an answering machine. I left my message...

We'll see.
