|I was driving to work on November 06 2008. I stopped for Sonic to eat before work. I live very close to the back side of the locale air port and 4 surrounding Military bases. I say this because I see lots of aircraft in the air at all times. I was in the drive up and I saw a strange pattern of lights on a plane or what looked to be a plane banking to the left to turn, but the object never turned and the light pattern never changed. I then saw a state police helicopter go in the same direction. I thought nothing of it at the time. I paid for my meal at the window and started driving to the base I currently work at as a Computer Systems administrator. I'm maybe a mile up the road still in town and I see the same object, flying very close to a residential area well under 300 feet in the air. I thought for a plane that’s close I sure don’t here any noise coming from it, so I rolled down my window and sure thing it did not make one sound. It soon dropped off of my vision and I keep driving. The road I’m on comes to a 4 way stop and is just off the back side of a locale air port and I see the same object coming from the direction of the air port and thought for sure this pilot must be trying to land or is having problems. I make my left hand turn at the 4 way stop and then a right on to the highway. The object at that time has stop in mid air just of the right of the highway I'm driving on. I'm coming up to the object and I see a row of well yellow lit windows so bright you can’t make out the inside compartment. But not a blinding eliminating light just well lit and yellow in color. I’m driving at about 30mph now and the object is to my right and I can see the underbelly it had green strips of lights all over the undercarriage of the craft and the body of the craft was black and blended in with the night sky so well I really could not make out the shape or even the hole size of the craft. It was very well triangle shape from the way the green lights were lade out on the bottom of the craft and! I rolle d down my window again and heard not one sound. At this time a second car had pulled over to the side of the road and started flashing its light and the object with out banking in any direction to the left or right to turn seemed to go back in the direction it came from towards the airport. I speed to the nearest cross section to make a u-turn and race to the airport with the object still in sight. I have to stop at a stop light and lose the object behind a set of buildings that a recently gone up in the last two or so years. Its very bright over buy the buildings as if the craft was hiding but the buildings are on a gated road I don’t have access to and I can' see the craft anymore. I'm leaving back towards work and I'm looking at the new buildings that I have never seen before and it seems there is a private run way and some indicator lights lighting up a run way path I've never seen before. And there seem to be an airplane hanger right behind this new building that’s just off the main run way to the locale airport, where I think this object my have landed and possibly if it was not a true UFO may have been stored away. Any way I tried to Google maps the location of the building and it seems they are brushed out of the picture or were not built when the photo was taken. I saw this craft up-close and for a very long time, I'm more then sure I'm not the only one in the area as it was flying very close to the ground and very slowly no aircraft other then a helicopter could have pulled off the speeds but not the maneuvers. I wish I would have had my camera to take photos. It was not any aircraft I have ever seen nor was it your typical UFO sighting as the object did not glow did not have over powering bright lights or laser beams. On the ride out to the baseI work at I saw what seemed to be more aircraft all NONUFO and very identifiable in the sky then I've seen in a long time it was as if they were looking for some thing. I will be keeping an eye out and would like to know where I could better report my f! indings or receive any information or any other repotted similar sights for that night in my area.
