Reported: 5/10/2011 11:44:52 AM 11:44
Posted: 5/12/2011
Location: Chateauroux (France),
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
3 red lights in a triangle formation seen in the French sky

We (family of four, a 12 year old girl, 16 year old boy, 43 year old woman and 59 year old man) all witnessed 3 small, circular red lights moving slowly and silently across the night sky from South East to North West, before gradually fading from view.

They were in a triangle formation, but then moved into a straight line. Although it looked like 3 separate lights, because they were so equally spaced and were moving together we all came to the conclusion that it was a dark coloured or black triangular-shaped craft (although we could not make this out) with a red light at each point.

There were also several passenger planes travelling north to south as we are underneath a busy flight corridor, although the object we saw looked nothing like a plane (and made no sound).
