Appearance / Description of Object(s)
A very large and thick triangle. The surface did not seem to reflect light at all ...like it was a flat black. The lights at the corners were not that bright and they remained white. The lights did not blink or change color but did maintain proximity.
Size of Object(s)
This is hard to say. It appeared to be huge. Like a dirigible but in a triangle form. As best I could make out in the dark lines it looked rounded but I am not sure.I would say thickness would be anywhere from 50 to 100 ft thick. and the triangle appeared equilateral and possibly 200ft long at each side.
Description of Area / Surroundings
shift from suburban to rural There are two airports in the immediate area: Hicks Field (which it appeared to be crossing), and Alliance Airport. Further to the East is DFW Airport. Further to the SW (the direction it was coming from) is Carswell AFB NAS Fort Worth JRB.
Full Description & Details
We were driving back from Fort Worth northbound on Hwy 81 & 287 after a late movie night. I had noticed three lights off to my left that seemed to be close/over Hicks Field . All three lights were white and not as bright as landing lights or spotlights used on helicopters by the police. The lights appeared close to each other...too close to each other to be helicopters or airplanes..and they stayed in constant distance to each other. This really peaked my attention. I pulled over and began to watch the lights approaching in formation. Then I realized I was vaguely seeing that the lights were at the points of what appeared to be a triangle. This flying triangle was big. It was impossible to gauge the size without a some kind of reference. It seemed to be flying fairly low yet I could not hear ANY sound from the triangle. As it got nearer i could ever so faintly make out that it was very thick as well. The object was flying fairly quickly but not any faster than a small plane or helicopter could fly. As the object turned from a NW trajectory to a North and then to a North East path it passed behind me. All the time I could just faintly see the outline of the craft in the dark sky. It never seem to speed up but instead seemed to remain constant through the turn to the NE. I pulled out my Cannon EOS Rebel and tried to take some pictures. But looking through the viewfinder it was impossible to see the object. I took a few pictures but it was frustrating as hell trying to find black object I gave up and went back to watching it move off till I could no longer see the two lights on the now REAR of the craft. The lights never blinked on/off or changed color or position unless the whole craft was moving.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
My guess is a very stealthy blimp/ dirigible. Althought silent it did not move very fast at all. In fact having seen the Fuji, Goodyear blimps several times in DFW skies it moved as ponderous but faster than those blimps.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have always been interested. I think life does exist in the universe besides earth. Since we are here it proves it is possible and even inevitable. That life on other planets can cross space/time to get here needs proof beyond visual observation. For me it is like the Native Americans before Columbus. I just hope if that day comes that it will not be the same experience that happened to the Native Americans upon encountering some alien Columbus!!
