“It is foggy tonight, but saw three white lights in a backwards triangle, possibly a boomerang shape,” the witness stated. “Difficult to see in the fog/haze layer, about 100-200 feet above my truck moving slowly at first, then speeding up and quickly disappearing into the fog.”

The witness said the object was heading northbound over houses going towards a cornfield north of Tuolumne Road.

“No sound. My wife was riding in the passenger seat, but was looking down at her phone when I pointed it out. She did not see it before it disappeared into the fog/haze bank.”

“I noticed a gray object gliding by,” the witness stated. “It was about 50 yards above our heads. Both boys noticed it.”

The witness described the object.

“It was in the shape of a V and made no noise. The ‘wings’ were about the length of a couch and had the width of a football. As it went by, it had no lights and we lost sight of it in the dark sky.”

The witness is wondering if they saw a drone.

As the object moved over head at about 150 feet, it also had no lights, but the witness is speculating it may have been a drone.  Pictured: Milford, Iowa. (Credit: Google)
