Duration:15 minutes
Me and my husband saw a triangular UFO very closely in KS. It was losing control, then regained and took off.

I think it was late summer or start of fall, in 2002. We were visiting family at my husbands sisters house, then me and him left in my car to go get food for everyone, it was about 8:30 PM. We were in a pretty suburban area. Houses on blocks, apartments, a YMCA right near by. We were driving along a straight stretch and my husband said "oh my goodness that plane is gonna crash". I thought he was joking told him playfully to shut up and then he said "no seriously." I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a large black object coming overtop of a hill behind us. It was sort of wobbling side to side like it was about to lose control, and it was dangerously low and close to the power lines, then it seemed to sort of start getting control again. I stopped my car right in the middle of the street, there was no other traffic around. I turned around and started looking out the back window. It was going very slow and then about not even 200 feet behind my car it stopped and started to just hover. I was like a straight up triangular shape looked almost as if you drew a big letter A, standing straight up in the sky. It was black very sleek and on one side it was completely covered with lights, green, red and yellow. They were all blinking and there had to be 200 hundred of them. We just set there in awe. Then all of a sudden it took off. It left so fast you could almost see lines in the air after it (another strange thing I noticed when it took off it made no sound at all, any other aircraft you would have heard take off noise, it just zipped off with nothing). I just went on impulse through my car into drive and tried to follow. I was going about 90 mph trying to follow it. I saw a ramp unto the highway and by the time I got up on the highway we could only barely see the lights of the UFO way off in the distance. When we got back to his sisters house I couldn't help but try to tell them what we had seen. NO one believed us. So, we haven't really talked about it since. Has anyone else seen a UFO like that?
