Location: Tahlequah, OK
Shape: Triangle
Duration:Ten Minutes
Stopped on North Water street just north of Allen Road because one of the four passengers in the car needed to urinate. I was in back left seat. While standing outside I noticed a dead silence and calm. I looked up to the north at some stars and as I looked to the east it seemed like there might be a cloud blocking all the starlight but then as I stood very still and looked right at the dark spot I noticed the blackness was in a very well defined wedge-like triangle. I told the other three to look at it and we all three tried to figure out the total absence of light in that one spot. After about two minutes we noticed that our chests/abdomens had a kind of low frequency vibration that kinda felt like it took our breath. A light from the front came on very dim then grew incredibly bright. It then seemed like you could see a front portal with some lights inside. From it's hover position that had not changed at all the shape started to move north very slowly. T! he light, like a trillion candlepower headlight kept growing brighter as the shape sped up to a fast crawl. After about 1/2 to 1 minute the shape was now moving north and slightly up it seemed and was going about 25 miles per hour which seemed like nothing since it looked to be about 90 feet from side to side and about 120 feet long. It kept speeding up to the north and we jumped in the car to follow until we got to Grand View country school and we could see a light out the rear of the craft after it had banked 90 degrees to the east and headed toward Tulsa at an unbelievable speed. It seemed to climb to the upper atmosphere and traveled in an absolutely straight line. We decided not to discuss this with anyone because we knew we would be ridiculed and we never really brought it up with each other. It was a clear night and it seems likek the moon was nearly at new stage because most of the light was from stars. The craft was such a flat black that it's only shape was the la! ck of stars. The air was crisp and clear and the absence of st! ars behi nd the craft made a very well defined shape. The low frequency reverberation inside my chest was the most noticeable effect of the event. The light that came on at the front almost seemed like a regular Q Beam that was powered by a massive energy source but it did keep an almost laser-like tightness. At about one mile the beam was about as wide as the craft. There was absolutely no noise at all from the craft at any point. The low frequency hum was felt and not heard.
