Shape: Triangle - Duration: 15 minutes - Triangle shaped craft splits in perfect halves and goes in opposite directions.
My father who is retired law enforcement, and I were in our backyard trying out the star map on my new tablet at 10:00 pm.
I was holding my tablet above our heads and looking at the shapes on the constellations, when all of a sudden my tablet which was at 90% charge shut down and we were unable to get it back on.
We then decided to grab our phones from our pockets to download the same application and continue were we left off, but our cell phones were both off and unable to turn on as well.
So we just started looking at the sky thinking nothing of it when my mother opens the back door and says to my father the lights in the house are flashing on and off rapidly. We then notice that both houses next to ours are doing the same.
So my father being retired law enforcement starts to access the situation when he says to me, "My God, look at that."
My mother and I look up and we all see this triangle-shaped craft that kind of appeared out of nowhere.
It was coming from one horizon to the other. When it became closer to us we realized the massive size of this craft and how low to the ground it was. It couldn’t have been more than 5 - 600 feet up.
As it slowly moved over our block, the flickering of the lights became more rapid and then as it came overhead the lights were completely out on the entire block, it became almost pitch black.
As it heads toward the opposite horizon it gained altitude and then completely stopped in the sky. Then the triangle separated perfectly in half. It hovered there for two or three minutes and without making any sound both halves went in opposite directions at an incredible rate of speed.
Once the craft took off, almost instantly the lights in our house along with every house we could see turned on at the same time.
I have never heard my father say anything about UFOs or anything close to it. Being a police officer, it could have jeopardized his career and credibility.
But my parents and I could find no reason for what could have caused for such strange things in what seemed like the longest 15 minutes of my life.
