I was staying at my girlfriend's parents' home (They made us sleep in separate rooms) and I was awakened by a low-pitched, rumbling vibration and sound. I went to the window and opened it to look out. Almost my entire veiw of the sky was blotted out by a huge triangular shape with lights running down the sides and marking the corners. It seemed incredibly low and was moving very slowly toward the West. I watched until the entire length passed overhead and the rumbling began to grow more distant. I was astounded and wondered what to do--then I remembered that I was in the middle of a city and realized that this would be big news in the morning--it couldn't have gone unnoticed--so I decided to go back to bed! No one else that I know of saw a thing, so I've kept it largely to myself until now. The report from Louisburg NC seems to be very similar and may have been the same night. But mine made noise.
