Animal Reaction Feature:
At 9 pm on a clear night, two witnesses saw a triangular-shaped object, and they noted that, “The dogs were going crazy in the whole town, barking and causing quite a disturbance.”

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
Two brothers, one, 31,  a mechanic, and the other, 16, a student, saw lights through the trees as they went to their car.  As they drove to a restaurant, they saw a light drop from an upright triangle.  The dropping light extinguished about half way to the ground.

The triangle was oriented with a point of the triangle upward.  Three very bright white lights were on each point of the triangle and were blinking off and on about every 2 seconds [not absolutely clear if 3 lights were on each point or one light was on each point of triangle—jw]. The object was moving fast, going SW to SE at an elevation of 45 degrees.  The estimated altitude of the triangle was greater than 500 feet.  Its distance from the witnesses was estimated at less than a mile.

The older brother reported the hair on his arms was standing up as he watched the lights from inside the car.

No sound was detected and there were no EM effects.
