|My 2 children and I were heading out to the store. We live near an air force base so we constantly watch the skies for odd aircraft. This night as we were leaving our street to get on the main rd we noticed a slow moving craft to our right in the sky not very far up maybe 500-800 ft. with 3 white lights in a triangle shape on its bottom. It was moving so slowly we thought it was wierd so we stopped to take a closer look as we slowed the craft smootly banked to the left and slowly crossed the road we were on and within about 10 sec it had done a complete 180 degree turn and was heading the opposite direction. My children and I knew this was an impossibility because 1) we hear aircraft all the time overhead, and this on made no sound what so ever; 2) It moved way too slowly for anything that we normally see; 3) The size of the arc created by the turn was only about the width of 8 streets. The size of the craft was huge maybe 200 ft wide triangular shaped, dark maybe black or grey. We turned around to follow it to get a better look but as we did it seemed to silently accelerate with amazing speed to a point we could not keep up with it. Anyway I''ve been waiting my whole life to see one now I have and I have my children as witnesses.
