5 lights form triangle near Coralville, IowaWhile traveling west on I-80 just east of Coralville, Iowa on a beautiful clear Friday evening at dusk, around 5:00 pm, we noticed two bright lights low in the western sky. At first we thought they were airplanes but they were not moving. Then three other lights appeared with the other lights in a curvy line similar to an S lying down. Then the five lights moved around to form a huge triangle with the brightest light at the top and two at the bottom and the two other lights at the sides which turned into outward slashes similar to jet contrails with a pinkish tint. A few minutes later the brightest of the lights turned into a slash and headed to the left while the other lights disappeared. This lasted around 10 minutes. It was a very strange thing to witness while traveling down the interstate. There were hundreds of cars on the road so I'm sure others saw this along with the four of us in our car.((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and found him to be quite serious-minded, and credible in his description of the event. Please see possibly similar event from Williamsburg, VA, for the same date. PD))
