floated silently above our truck

On the evening of 10/3/98 my husband and I picked up a load from Dallas, Tx. and were on on way to Laredo, Tx. I had just gotten in the bed in the sleeper compartment of the truck when my husband asked me to come up front and look at this weird light coming at us. By the time I got up and put my glasses on it was getting very close to us. It was a triangle shaped craft and was very dark in color. I would say black or very dark green. It was silent and only about 1,000 feet above our truck, that we had pulled over to the side of the road. We were on hwy. 278. and just after the sighting, I got the name of the small town and wrote it down, along with the time and date. We have had several sightings and I would be so excited or should I say scared that I wouldn't even think to write any information down. I did have a camera and camcoder with me but I was so excited that I didn't even think about picking one on them up. I said that I would if we ever had another sighting. This is not an easy thing to do when your scared. The craft started off being off to our left and then came toward our truck and then passing right over the top of us. There was no sound from it what so ever. It floated over us and just disappeared.
