Reported: 1/20/2006 4:38:53 PM 16:38
Posted: 2/14/2006
Location: Oldbury (UK/England),
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 MINUTES
Transparent Triangular object with no lights, but having circles at each corner.

I was driving home from work along a busy stretch of motorway. Weather was slightly overcast but with some gaps in the clouds. A bright reflection in the sky to my left caught my attention, like the sunlight reflecting off an airliner, but there was no sun to make this happen, and no aircraft in the sky. Almost an instant later the reflection or bright light seemed to shrink down to nothing and disappeared. Continuing to drive but still looking partly at the sky perplexed by what I had just seen I notice this huge "image" which was triangular in shape and seemed to be moving very slowly behind the clouds. It seemed to be transparent but I could clearly see it's shape. It didn't appear to have any lights on it but in each corner was either a single or a double round circle. I watched it at regular intervals (as often as I could safely look up while driving), I was getting nearer to it continuing to drive towards it as it passed over the motorway. This thing was huge, I know how big a large airliner seems in the sky and this was like 10 times bigger at least, and fairly low too and I thought surely there must be lots of people seeing this, but you would have had to have been looking up while driving to have spotted it and it was only the bright light that got my initial attention.

Eventually I passed it but at that time it seemed to enter thicker clouds and was less visible anyway.

Didn't see any reports in the press or TV about this.
