July 2012, honolulu, hi. apprx. 2200 hrs. i was lying down on the beach looking at the stars and speaking with a friend of mine, who was sitting next to me. i was lying facing the ocean, but it was dark enough that the horizon was obscured and there was no point of reference. i suddenly noticed an extremely large object floating overhead in my direction, in a straight line. as it passed over me, it appeared to be just grazing the tree line (this is how low it appeared to be flying). i noticed 3 spherical, globe-like and extremely bright white lights, each forming a triangle of their own, in a each corner of the object (9 lights in total, in sets of 3's marking the shape of a triangle). once the object was directly overhead of me, red and blue lights began flashing in an erratic and random fashion, from the center of the object. it was at this point that i observed how large this object was. it covered the tree line and i could not see the sky around it. it made zero sound. it was like watching a cloud pass over me. it did not emit any trails or exhaust. i turned my head to follow the object as it flew in a straight line and disappeared behind me, into the night sky. upon watching the object, i seemed to have been put in such a trance that everything around me "stopped". i did not hear anything around me, the only thing i was focused on was this object. once the object was gone from sight, suddenly i regained attention to my environment around me. i lost sight of the object after turning my head and noticing it was no longer there. it seemed to have disappeared for good.
