|A large black triangle passed over our house and into the west at night.
I was watching a movie in my living room at about 11pm on Monday, Nov.
5th when I noticed it had started to rain outside. We are in the middle of a drought and I had not heard it was going to rain so I went to the front door to look outside and see how hard it was coming down.
As I approached the door I heard a strange noise that sounded like a low wooshing, almost like a high pressure fire hose off in the distance.
I opened the door and looked outside into the sky, immediately noticing a large dark triangular shape above our courtyard.
The object was approximately 500-700 feet off the ground, passing overhead slowly and looked as large as a commercial airliner. It was an equilateral triangle with bright white lights (not blinking) at each corner, one fainter white light (also not blinking) just in back of the forward light and a bright red blinking light in the center of the craft.
I watched in awe as it cruised slowly west across Highway 395 and out of sight. I saw it for perhaps 15 or 20 seconds.
I live less than 5 miles from the Pentagon and we have military helicopters flying over our house several times a day, but I have never seen anything like this.
