Solid orange lights in triangle formation with another group in a line ascending from the horizon. All of them moved up to a certain point in the sky, hovered and then just faded from a stationary position.

I was driving south on route 10 just outside of the town of Delhi New York just after sunset. It was approximately 7:15 and the sky was in transition from twilight to night.

In the car with me was a long time friend.  We both noticed an unusual formation of lights ahead of us in the distance between two mountains.  

It was so unusual that it compelled us to pull the car off the road and take a look.  

We pulled off just past Hoag Crossroad.  

Facing southwest in the distance, we saw various groupings of steady orange colored lights moving at a very slow pace.  

Since I had nothing for reference to compare them to, their size and distance could not be determined.  

But if I had to guess, I’d say they were a few miles away. 

One group was in the shape of a triangle.  These were three in number.  They were moving slowing upward and towards us.  

Below the triangular shape, there was also orange lights moving in the same direction, however these were more in a straight line.  

These were coming one by one up from the horizon.

At one point, the group of lights in a triangular shape became stationary.  They then just seemed to ‘fade away’.

After the triangular shape disappeared, the other line of lights followed the same path.  

One by one they also became stationary and disappeared.  

As this was happening, another car pulled over next to us.  It was a woman whom I did not know.  She also noticed the unusual nature of these lights for they were definitely nothing like any of us had ever seen.  

As we watched, I suddenly noticed out of my peripheral vision a floating black object, which was barely visible coming closer to us.  

Making out the shape of this object was difficult because it was moving as a black object against a nearly black sky.  

We all agreed it wasn’t round.  At best it resembled a heart shape or even something close to a Stealth Bomber.  

The odd thing was that it was totally silent and gliding in nature.  

We also agreed it wasn’t a Stealth Bomber as we’ve all seen and heard them before.  

This was very different.  

As it approached us, it veered north of us and seemed to descend into the trees of the mountain off the road. 

After this we just looked at the remaining orange lights fade away.  

We also did hear some noises coming from the wooded area from which the black object seemed to descend.  Whether or not these noises were related, I could not say.  

As all of this was happening, the woman was calling her daughter on the phone who lived near by.  She arrived on the scene after it was over.  

According to the daughter, the orange lights are something she has seen before and even has video of.  

Logically, one might think these were flares given the description here but these were not.  The reason is because of the nature in which they moved.  They were not like fireworks at all.  They were very craft like.

After discussing this for a few moments amongst ourselves, we then saw what was obviously military planes where we had previously seen the orange lights.  

These were clearly planes with fast flashing lights- very much like fighter planes.  They seemed to be flying in erratic patterns.  

We then exchanged emails and drove home.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
