My 21 yr old son and I went out to walk our dog at approximately 8:00 pm on Sunday, February 8, 2015. We were walking west down a long street in northern Cape Coral, FL. This street we were on at the time has no homes and no street lights and it was pitch black. It was a cool evening. The sky was completely clear and full of stars.
As we walked, we noticed two very bright seemingly stationary lights in the sky to the west straight ahead of us. I assumed they were planets and my son checked his Google Sky Map app on his phone and confirmed that the bright light on the left was Venus, but there was no explanation for the bright light to the right of it. We naturally assumed it was a plane approaching but it was silent – no preceding jet noise – and it did not appear to be moving for quite some time.
We continued walking west toward it for several minutes. Eventually it began to appear larger. As it got closer, the light which had at first seemed to have an orangish hue to it became a very bright white. We still thought it was a plane but were puzzled by the silence. It finally passed overhead very, very slowly moving eastward with the faintest whirring sound.
We knew then that it was definitely not any kind of plane we’d ever seen before because we could see the outline of it against the sky and it was triangular. It had one very large, very bright white light on the front and three identical lights across the back. There were no flashing lights and no red or blue lights like we normally see on planes. Also, the lights were much bigger than lights we've seen on jets in the past.
We turned and watched it continue moving slowly to the east. It finally seemed to pick up speed and completely disappeared.
