Location: Montgomery, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4to5min
low slow bright light, no sound

while traveling south on county road 7 about four miles south of old selma road a triangle shaped craft approached from the east at about 20 mph. It crossed the road in front of us heading towards the GE plant in Berkville in Alabama, the only bright spot on the horizon to the west. Upon seeing the triangle I slowed my speed to under 25 mph, and watched it travel another 1/2 mile, stop, and retraced its route. It was approximately 120 feet in the air. I stopped my car about 1/4 of a mile after passing underneath it. Turned around to see it retrace it's path & come back at a slower speed, approximately 10 mph. Went another mile, or so - & vanished. Thank you for your return call Sunday evening. You had me as a Mrs. Montgomery. I neglected to give you my last name, sorry. The craft was triangle in shape, with bright lights on all three corners, one or two lights down the sides, all white lights. One toward the front was especially bright. It created shadows from the bushes & trees, and lit up the brush so you could see colors. Was flat across the back with no lights on the back. The triangle was black. The underside was void of any distinguishing marks. The night was very clear, and somewhat warm. Lots of stars, and very little moon. The area we were in is very unpopulated, and has many fields where crops are during season. It made no sound. There is a commercial airport with a air force reserve squadron five miles to the southeast. There is a major airforce base about five miles to the northeast. Danley field, and maxwell afb respectively. Prior to seeing it the radio on fm fading in & out with a kind of squeally noise. It only happened once, and lasted only a few seconds. Not tyical for this area. The closest we ever got was about 200 feet. On a personal level I am 35 year old mother of three daughters, marrried, 3 years of college, business major, home school my children, and work as a clerk in a movie store, accounting background. This was witnessed by myself, and three daughters. Who up until now have been very skeptical about ufos!
