Cary, North Carolina - 03-11-14
Shape: Triangle - Duration: 45 seconds - Black Triangle over Cary, N.C. Accompanied by Three Black Helicopters
As I finished up moving furniture for some family, I heard the distinct roar of choppers (helicopters) in the distance. Being one to investigate late-night military craft (which I knew that they were); I sat outside on the steps, waiting for the choppers to pass.
About four and a half minutes into waiting, they broke from behind the tree line, and flew by the house. They were blacked-out, say for the red lights on the noses of the aircraft.
As I stood to go back inside, my attention was drawn to huge white lights coming from behind the trees on the opposite side of my field of view. I watched the lights emerge, and saw what I thought was a low-flying plane taking off from our local airport.
The craft moved quite slowly, and had three very bright white lights forming a perfect triangle. The lights were very large to boot, almost touching one another.
I was able to make out another smaller white light in the center of the three, as well as a slowly blinking red light on the plane opposite of the craft’s direction of movement (i.e. a taillight).
I was able to see a black body around the lights. The craft disappeared behind tree cover, and never attained significant elevation. Both the choppers and the unidentified craft headed in the same direction; east, towards downtown Cary.
It was only later that I realized that both the choppers and the craft came from the west of us, nowhere near the airport, which is north and east by a long shot. The craft originated from the vicinity of Jordan Lake.
The next day, my boss said that he too heard choppers near his house in Wake Forest, sometime around 23:15. He saw nothing, though.
