A triangle shaped craft with brilliant lights flew over my house.

On April 29, 2008, at about 11pm or so, I stepped outside to take the trash out along with my dog when I happened to look up at the stars and notice an unusual, triangle shaped craft.

For about 5 or 6 seconds, I watched the craft fly over my neighborhood at pretty fast speed and was flying very low, only about 1000 feet above. At first I figured the object was just some type of plane going to land at a major airport about 30 miles away. The problem was that the object didnít seem to heading in the direction of the airport.

As the object passed, it didnít strike me as any type of aircraft I had ever seen before. I couldnít see the actual structure too clearly but the outline was noticeable. About 10 or so lights as bright as stars lined the craft to form the triangular shape.

The strange thing was that there was absolutely no sound coming from the object. I am very familiar with human aircraft and there is no such craft of that shape that can fly so low and not make a sound.

After watching the object for a few seconds, I looked down at my dog and when I looked back up, the object was completely gone. I waited outside another five minutes to kind of gather up what I had seen and to wait for any delayed sound, however a sound never came.

I could also see and HEAR a commercial plane in the distance (about 5 miles away) after about five minutes after I had seen the UFO. The commercial plane was moving much slower than the UFO. And the lights were noticeable for a few minutes. The lights of the UFO were not visible after I had looked away for only 1 second.
