|Triangle shape object moving silently passed directly over my head.
Driving a familiar route just outside of the city, around nine in the evening I noticed a light in the sky. At first sight I thought of an antenna light, but this light was much too bright.
As I approached the end of the road I was on I realized that the light was very close. I was at a "T" section where the road I was on ended at a small county road. There’s a house directly across from where I was stopped at the stop sign.
The light looked to be directly over the house. I thought it looked kind of like the house owners had installed a flood light on an antenna, but the light was much too bright it looked as if it were a couple hundred feet above the house at most.. I got out of my car to study the light. The light the slowly rose maybe another hundred feet or so stopped climbing and began to move forward towards me at a very slow rate. As the light passed directly over me I could make out the shape, it had 3 points that I could make out (like a 3 point star) with a few dimmer lights on the underside of it. The bright light that I had been seeing seemed to be on the front side of the object pointing straight ahead. The object was only a few hundred feet above me at most. There was absolutely no sound what so ever from the object.
The object continued on its course for about a minute when it suddenly changed direction and speed away at a very high rate of speed. It was out of my sight in a matter of seconds.
I am very familiar with civilian aircraft as well as many military aircraft. I have never seen anything remotely like this, or any aircraft that was so completely silent.
