Was driving home from work at about 8:00 pm turned onto highway 15 at carleton place and started south i noticed the object within seconds of making the turn. it was just off to the left and above me. i could see it clearly looking up at the top left corner of the windshield. what was strange was that i was trying to identify it as something familiar and explainable i was thinking helicopter at first but could not fit the shape of what i was seeing with anything that i had seen before. as i drove into the countryside the light pollution diminished and it became much easier to see. it was very large and moved very slowly i was travelling at about fifty to sixty miles an hour and did not seem to be falling much behind it. for the most part i was behind it. the surface of it appeared darker than the night it had what looked like four blue flames coming from each of the rear corners there was a fair separation between the flames. there was a large glowing light in the middle of it which made it difficult at first to determine what the true shape of it was. i was thinking at first it might have been a diamond shape but after watching it for a while i can say with certainty that it was triangular. the illumination of the central light was not that bright but was visible there looked to be a glowing band of orange or red lights that followed the contour of the sides. none of the illumination was strobing and it was constant more like a series of lights or an glow showing up through a series of vents along the sides. i kept it in sight for the entire trip home from carleton place to smihs falls when i turned west at the junction of hwy 15 and roger stevens rd. it remained visible as i drove down the main street it slowly made a westerly turn no banking just a change of direction. i kept it in sight as i came to a stop light on beckwith street. there was no traffic other than myself on the main street when the stop light changed and i started off i noticed a young guy walking on the side walk i came to a stop rolled down my window and got his attention. the object was clearly visible and still fairly low so i wanted to draw it to his attention, i said take a look to your left and up what do you make of that he said what the expletive is that thing, i told him i had been following it for about a half an hour. in all honest i wanted to make sure that i was really seeing this and it gave me great comfort to know that he could see it as well. i continued down brockville street and it remained in sight i drove out of town and turned onto my road hoping that it would stay visible long enough to grab a camera and try and get a picture. i had tried to use my phone to get a shot of it but didnt think it would get anything given that it was in the distance and pitch black outside and i was driving down the road at 60 miles and hour. i pulled into my driveway and hurried inside and got my wife and daughter to come out and take a look just so that i would have witnesses and that they would not think i was nuts. i also told my daughter to grab my camera so that i could take some pictures. i took some pics and some video the video was crap because it was to far away to focus, a couple of the pics came out but they are very far away telephoto shots. i went on the internet and looked at photos i am pretty certain that what i was observing was a tr3b. but i will leave that up to you to decide.
