Black triangle, white lights, three, night, clear, many stars, slow, afraidIt has been a beautiful, clear fall night so after an evening out, I opened the sunroof of my car to enjoy the fall air and relax for a moment. I was in awe at how many stars were visible and how clear the skies seemed. I had been sitting in the car for approximately twenty minutes, enjoying the air and listening to music with my seat reclined while I looked at the sky when I saw a large black triangle glide over my home and car.The triangle was large, black and isosceles triangular in shape. It had three lights; one on each point. The lights were white but not brilliant enough to illuminate the bottom of the triangle for a closer inspection as the triangle itself seemed very black, blacker than the sky. The entire event occurred so quickly and I was so startled that I cannot tell how far away the object seemed; I can only put it in perspective that it seemed much lower than a plane would fly. It was not flying as a plane would, either, since it was moving much slower and differently in the sense that when a plane moves across your field of vision, it does so in a linear fashion across the sky and this object's flight deviated in such a way that seemed unnatural and in-conducive to flight.I was very startled and, quite frankly, afraid after it left my field of vision and quickly restarted my car and ran inside. I am still afraid and have looked up for twenty minutes how to report a sighting. I'm not sure why I feel so compelled to tell someone about this and I feel quite foolish stating that I think I saw a UFO but I have no idea what I just saw. I am still quite shaken and will likely be up all night researching to see if anyone else has ever seen an odd black triangle in the Southeast.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
