Posted: 5/8/2014
Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3-5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular craft with three dim orange lights.

Shortly after 10:45 pm I was walking down the sidewalk in front of my house and looked up to admire the brightness of mars. While looking at the sky I saw what fist appeared to be a single cloud in an otherwise clear night sky.

I noticed that the object was moving too fast to be a cloud and had a distinctive triangle shape with rounded corners. It appeared to be about 300 feet off the ground and flew directly over me. When it was directly overhead I could see three semi-spheres on the bottom that were emitting a very dull orange light. As it flew farther away I lost sight of it when it flew over a street light.
