... guess of size would range from 100 to 150 feet across.

The winter in New York’s south-western region was particularly hostile this year. The brutal negative temperatures brought its inhabitants to a screeching halt. I spent very little time outside this season. So my sighting was completely by chance, and at the time I giggled to myself as I saw something that I have studied and assessed for some time, never planning to see one of my own.
It certainly brought every witness statement I have ever been lucky enough to read and work full circle to me. Immediately, all of the statements I read daily fit like a glove. It was interesting for sure.
It was mid-March 2015, frigid, cold and horrible night. I was on a late night phone call to a dear friend of mine making plans for her birthday weekend at the end of April. Being a smoker, I constantly associate the phone with a hot cup of coffee and a cigarette but being a mother, I do not smoke in my home, so I was forced to face the elements to do so.
Shivering with the phone on my shoulder, and cigarette in hand, my head was angled and as we spoke to one another I gazed at the beautiful starry sky. My family and I live on a quiet mountain top; no street lights, no noise and the most beautiful sky you can imagine.
Being a Field Investigator for the State of New York, I am constantly looking about for a peek of the unknown. The skies remained quiet and beautiful. But this night ended a little differently.
As we spoke, to my disbelief, an object caught my eye gliding smoothly across the sky. I would estimate its altitude at approximately 1,000 feet. My guess of size would range from 100 to 150 feet across. This was a black triangle. From the distance, I cannot see any distinct features about this unknown, but I can tell you this was no plane- civilian or military.
This triangle glided so smoothly across the sky and was completely silent. At all three points, there were white lights, and in the center, a larger red light. The sky was beautiful that night, cloud cover was sparse, with only a few in my line of sight. I watched this triangle glide behind a small cloud. It never came out the other side. It simply vanished.
I finished my phone call quickly and hopped into my Jeep and drove to a nearby peak to see if I could see anything. The night was silent and still, and my beautiful triangle, one that I have researched so many times, was gone, just like that.
It is almost humorous to me that I was able to see this, even for the few seconds that it glided through my existence. Triangle Unknowns have always been an interest of mine in this amazing field I have studied many in my humble research. You never think, after years of looking, that while on the phone shivering, talking about birthdays, that you will luckily be able to look up and see something so amazing.
I am elated to have viewed such a mystery, only adding fuel to the fire of my constant thirst for information.
