This is an account of an experience I had long ago. I know it is fact and I always keep this with me as my life experience: When I was between the ages of 10 and 13 (1993 - 1996) I attended YMCA Summer camp in Silver falls State Park in Silverton, Oregon. I remember one amazing experience I had involving triangular craft.

My friend ((name deleted)) and I left our cabin group and stayed behind in the cabin area of camp, while the other children went to dinner. Alex and I lied down on a mattress pad outside of the cabins and were watching the stars. This area of Oregon has very tall fir-trees and we were watching the sky through a gap in the trees. From our right side a round bright white light crested over a large evergreen tree. It seemed to be no more than 30 -50 feet above the treetop. It moved closer towards us and as it did, two more lights become unblocked by the tree and a clear triangle shape was formed by these bright lights. The craft seemed to be the size of a large sized airplane. It was silent and moved very slowly. I remember expecting to see men repel from it on ropes, but it suddenly moved to our north and disappeared VERY quickly. Then in the horizon something caught my eye to our right side, I looked to the horizon through the trees and saw three bright white objects come together from different areas of the sky. These three objects formed a triangle of the exact proportions of the craft that had been close to us. To my amazement this formation suddenly accelerated vertically and disappeared into outer space. I kept my eyes steady in the sky, my eyes following its trajectory. Then I witnessed what appeared to be three stars break away from the night sky and come together to form yet another triangle with the same proportions as the first craft. This triangular "star formation" then suddenly shot across the sky like a meteorite, leaving a white streak in the heavens. Afterwards I asked ((name deleted)) if he saw the second and third triangle formations and he said “no”. When I asked him about the first craft, he seemed uninterested in discussing it. We never spoke of it again together and our friendship ended soon after that night. I rarely speak of this event. This was such an amazing encounter and when I read other flying craft encounters, I have never found one as interesting as my own.
