|Triangular shaped object buzzes a campsite in the north georgia mountains.
It was about 1am on 05-21-05. Myself and two of my friends were at a campsite deep in the mountains in Suches Georgia. The campsite is located along an old dirt road called Old 41 that wonders through the southern appalachians. We were literally miles away from any other people.
It was a quiet, clear night. We first noticed something strange when we saw a brief flash of light that lit up the canopy of trees around us. It almost seemed like lightning. There was no following thunder. All three of us noticed right away that the skies were completely clear.
About twenty seconds later as my companions and I pondered and verbally discussed the source of the mysterious flash of light. A triangular shaped craft flew directly over head at an amazing speed. The craft must have only been about fifty to one hundred feet over the tops of the trees. At that speed and altitude, a pilot in a coventional plane would of had to be insane. The object hissed as it passed by. There was no other sound.
The object projected a sharp bright light (similar in brightness and color to a halogen spotlight) towards the ground and lit up every thing within my sight as it passed over. The light was being emmitted from an area about 10 of 15 feet in diameter from the bottem center of the craft. I think there might have been smaller more faint lights around the edges of the craft. The "fly-by" only lasted a split second.
After the craft passed the wind picked up and lasted a minute or two. I can't remember how long exactly because I was franticly throwing my camping gear into the back of the truck.
Then we left at about 1:20am.
