Duration:2-3 minutes
I witnessed 3 low-flying, triangular-shaped, black crafts traveling to the north, northwest on Saturday 16, 1999.

I am a high school English teacher and maintain a part-time job at the local mall. On Saturday, October 16, 1999, I was scheduled to work late, and I did not get home until around 9:30-9:40 p.m. As I got out of my car, I looked in the sky over my house (to the north west). I saw something (I guess I thought it was a plane at first)that looked a little odd. I walked out the my back yard to get a better view. I saw 3 craft. They were triangular in shape and were traveling fairly close together. They had very little lighting, but the shapes were quite clear. They seemed to be flying fairly low, but I couldn't begin to estimate their distance. I watched for 2-3 minutes in awe. They seemed to have some movement, but they didn't seem to really travel across the sky. After a couple of minutes, I ran inside to get my husband so he could see, but when I finally got him out there, the crafts were gone. I happened to mention this to my parents on the following day, even though I knew they would think I was probably crazy. Instead, they told me that their best friend (now deceased) had witnessed the exact same thing two months prior to my sighting. He lives about 70 miles north of me, so it not quite in the same vicinity. Both sightings included the three craft that were dull, black with white lights on each corner of the triangle. This is fairly vague information, but until I listened to Art Bell tonight, I hadn't really considered reporting what I had seen. I have forgotten most of the specifics, but I did want this to be on some type of record. I had never really doubted the idea of UFOs, but I never thought I would actually see something which couldn't easlily be explained.
