I was at work, went outside to smoke. I look at the night sky every chance I get. I came out the door at 11:25pm and noticed the moon was low on the horizon and as I was looking at the moon I saw a bright white light cruising across the sky crossing a little below the face of the moon from my vantage point heading north-northwest. I thought it was the I.S.S. so I went into my truck which was right outside the door and grabbed my binoculars to look at it. Only when I had the binoculars did I see the triangle shape and the 3 lights, one on each corner. The front light was a solid white light, never wavering or change of color. The back 2 lights were randomly changing from white, red, and blue. I followed the object for 40 seconds until it disappeared behind the trees obstructing my view. It made no sound. And now thinking back on it, the brightness of the object was I.s.s.-like but the object was bigger because it was way closer than the I.s.s. I have no doubt of what I saw. It was not an airplane, satellite, shooting star, etc. I saw it clear as day through those lenses. If you have other witnesses of this event or need anymore details from me please do not hesitate to contact me. thanks, zach kappler
