I have been an aiviation enthusiast 20+years passing my FAA exam at 97%.I am no expert but am aware of most aircraft type and capabilities.This is my expierience of an aircraft I encountered that had looks and capabilities I never knew existed.Cresting the mountain top leading into a small meadow where Ihave camped frequently I noticed the lights to the ranger station were on located on a small peak on the far side of meadow aprox. 3 miles away. Driving about 100 yards further I realized there was no ranger station in this area.Three very bright lights in form of a triangle started to rise slowly to altitude 150-200ft and started to move tworads my position-at this time both my vehicle and portabe radio died.The lights came directly over me slightly to my right hooverd 3-4 min then took off slowly at first seeming to move sideways then took off at a rate of speed faster than any jet straight for the stars.
