Full Description & Details

This was about 20 years ago , but my son and I both remember it clearly . Actually , it's easy to remember some thing that out of the ordinary. I don't remember if my son was 10 or 11 , He'll be 30 soon . After a hockey game or practice , we left the arena , took a left and went up the hill to get to 1st Ave South where he lived with his mom . The hill is about 2-300 Ft. to get to 1st Ave. The hill is steep enough as to be seeing the sky as you drive up . I looked up and saw this very dark, moving object with many colored lights . It was all the different colors that caught my eye , so I rolled down the window and looked up , approx. straight up . I took the immediate right and stopped the car , got out and looked straight up . I thought I was seeing things . Had to stare at it for no more than 10 seconds or less and told my son to get out of the car . Just to reassure what I was seeing , without telling my son anything , I asked him what do you see? He said lights dad . I said , what color? He said all kinds . The best part is , when I asked him what shape it was , his response , triangle ! I said what do you hear ? Response , nothing. We watched it move , about what I estimate, about 30-40 mph to the WNW. The way it was moving , i would have had to zig zag to follow it , but we did see it for about 30-40 seconds . I knew I never observe any aircraft with so many lights , that big , and what we both describe as floating . P.S. I will take a lie detector test anytime and pass it . It was right at dusk.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Hell no , I know what we saw and DID NOT tell my son anything other than made him describe what he saw.
