Tigard Oregon 1978 Black Pyramid shape-no noise-no lights-floated then sparks below before shot off 5 min.

Ok this sighting was in 1978 or 79.I was at friends house.Tigard Oregon.It was dark out, with a full moon I am guessing, no cloulds.Clear night.Well lit out side.

His (friends)folks had a camper in the back yard for sell and he was showing it to me.We had walked out of the camper(in back yard)in around his house.I don't remember who saw it first, him or me.But right over our heads,not sure how high it was or true size.But you could see it perfect because of the moon light,and clear sky.At the time I was about 17.I had always been interested in UFO stuff.Well,we both had our heads straight up looking at this.It was a black shape pyramid.Square on the bottom(4 side) and came to a point with 4 side,just like a floating pyramid.I seen it and freaked.Raised my arms in the air toward it and tried to talk with it in my mind to see if I would get any mind talk back,or to show them I see them.My friend said what are you doing and I told him seeing if they talk back.He said put your arms down and was scared.We watched it for maby 5 minutes just float on by in a what seemed to be straight very very slow path.We walked away from his house to keep watching it as it just floated over the roof tops,guessing 100 feet up?.It went over(guessing)25 houses and then it made sparks.The whole time it made no noise,had no lights,and just looked like it floated.Then befor it took off it made sparks,small little balls of fire.It looked like some one had dumped coles out of a out side grill.Thats what the sparks/fire, looked like from under it.From our view point.

That always made me think maby it is us(secert stuff)and not UFO.Then after the sparks it shot straight up at a angle to the sky.Then it looked like a star and think it made 2 more angle turns befor you could not see the star looking light it had made.We ran in and told his folks and they did not come out or anything so quess they had no interest.We tried to find a camara to go back out and watch for anything elce but he had no film.When we went back out and looked we had seen 2 quick star like lights that had looked just like the thing we had seen after it took off.But that was maby a 2 sec. deal.Well I really don't know what to think as far as real UFO or not.The sparks it made befor taking off just seemed not right for a real UFO?? My ex step dad was in the air force and told me that they(UFO) are us.. Thats about it.Wish we new the truth on UFO's!!! I guess if we new the truth if they are true?That uncle sam would worry that no one would follow his ways anymore?? Thanks for your time..
