Austin, Texas - 10-12-13
Shape: Triangle - Duration: 1 minute
I observed 3 points of light suddenly appearing in the night sky above the stage of The Cure concert at ACL Music Fest on October 12, 2013, at approximately 8:55. I looked around to see if anyone else had noticed and leaned over to point it out to a stranger.
We both had no explanation. The lights were in a "D" triangular formation, probably 15 degrees in distance - the first light to the next - and were moving inward together at more than just a slow gradual pace.
They were orange in color and glowing. My first thought to attempt to explain it away was that "maybe someone had suddenly let 3 balloons aloft with candles or lights in the area," but they stayed in perfect synchronization without any change in proportional shape, aside from shrinking closer together in a matter of seconds.
The formation, or triangle, then receded into the fog and/or clouds. The position in the sky was approximately 45 degrees.
One person from the audience had been aiming a green laser upward to point the sighting out. Two friends of mine elsewhere in the crowd also witnessed the event, as did most likely hundreds as the group was a popular closing act and the surrounding was area packed.
One witnessed appears to have captured video and reported the incident with MUFON (case #51502).
