On 3/18/14 at approximately 2020 hours, I witnessed 2 black triangular objects in the sky near Interstate 680 at State Route 46 in Austintown, Ohio. While traveling east on I-76 crossing over the Meander Creek Reservoir Bridge I observed two orange lights in the sky at a distance. The two lights did not seem to be moving but rather stationary. As I came closer to the S.R. 46 overpass I noticed that the lights were slightly moving. After I crossed under the overpass, I looked up and to the left (north) and observed two black triangles to be seemingly gliding at about 200-330 feet off the ground. Upon further observation I also noticed the second triangle to be approximately 30-50 feet behind the first and slightly higher. Both black triangles were gliding without any noise; not typical for flying objects, especially this low to the ground. The objects were also making a slight left turn (north) passing over S.R. 46. I observed the objects to be a black triangle traveling with the flat end forward and the point to the rear. The front two corners each had an orange light, with no light on the rear tip. Both objects appeared to be the same in size, color, and flight. After turning around approximately a half mile down the road on I-680, I returned to the area of S.R. 46 at I-680 (approximately 1-2 minutes) and did not see the objects again. I remained in the area for another twenty minutes but did not see anything else. The temperature at time of observation was approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit, partly cloudy skies, but clear in the viewing area, no precipitation. Winds were approximately 4 mi/h blowing southeast. The area of observation was well light with building and streetlights, and contained heavy amounts of traffic. I am free of drugs, alcohol, and any mental or physical illnesses, 33 years old, a military veteran of 9 years, and police officer of 11 years.
