Appearance / Description of Object(s)
I saw a triangle shape with lights at three points. I am not sure if it was one object that traversed those three points with such rapidity that it gave the illusion of a triangular shaped object or whether in fact it was a triangular shaped object with much brighter-than-normal running lights for want of a better term. I have over four hundred hours logged, most of it piloting my own plane, and know what aircraft strobe lights look like. These were not them. The object was perfectly still in the sky for a period of roughly seven minutes and then abruptly disappeared.
Size of Object(s)
I would estimate the object to be at least a half a mile across.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Thirty-five thousand to fifty thousand feet.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Desert surroundings on the Navajo reservation approximately ten miles east of Kayenta, AZ
Full Description & Details
I saw a triangle shape with lights at three points at an altitude of somewhere between thirty-five thousand and fifty thousand feet. I would estimate that the size of the object would have had to have been easily over a half mile across. The lights jumped from point to point at a speed faster than any known aircraft can travel and in a completely irregular pattern.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It resembled no natural or man-made object. It hovered in one place, perfectly still, at an altitude which no helicopter could achieve (or if it was not one object with three running lights but rather one object, jumping from point to point in a triangular formation it stayed exactly in that area in a manner which no aircraft could duplicate.)
I'm a screenwriter, I have a B.A. from UCLA. I was a private aircraft owner and flew my own plane for several years. Having a home in Sedona, Arizona and a ranch in southwest Colorado and my home base in California I have had occasion to travel that area extensively over the last seventeen years and have never seen anything like this.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believed in the possibility but had never seen one. Also I should add that I have both piloted my own plane and had driven across that area of desert many times and never seen anything remotely like it.
