Triangular shaped UFO passes over my house in broad daylight.

On July 9, 2001 at 10:35 am, I was sitting on my back porch while talking with my mother (facing east) on my cell phone, I noticed an object in the sky.

They sky was bright blue with some random clouds at very high altitude. Basically a bright sunny summer morning.

The object was fairly obvious to notice in the sky because the sun created a shadow underneath the object giving it shape as I was looking up.

I initially thought it to be a high flying bird or hawk approximately 250-300ft above the ground.

But then I noticed that it had a consistant course of direction and was headed my way.

It grew larger as it approached (object was heading due west at approximately 30-40mph).

As it approached, it grew in size and became clear to me that this was not a bird or a normal/everyday aircraft as I heard no noise.

Living within a few miles of the approach path for the largest airport near our city, and an avid military aircraft buff, I knew this was nothing I had ever seen before nor could I identify.

My second impression was that a balloon was let go and drifting, but this object continued to maintain a westward course against a south/southeasterly wind at 10-15 mph and did not change altitude.

As I started to mention this to my mother (while on the cell phone and the object now close to overhead and probably just two to three blocks north of my house) we lost cell reception, and our call was dropped.

I have always had excellent if not perfect cell reception the 7 years i have lived in my town. This was not normal cell reception as the closest cell tower is only a half mile away.

The object was a very soft triangular shape (roughly the size of a compact car such as a mazda miata or something) and looked disk shpae from the side.

So picture a very soft triangle from underneath the object, but was convex or disk shaped on the roof of it.

It had a slow rotation to it the entire time, it maintained level flight, never made a sound, and did not roll or pitch in a fashion that a tirangular shaped ballon might tumble while moving along with the wind.

It was silvery gray with some shimmer that the sun provided which informed me of the rotation it had.

Then I thought, as weird as this was, I would try to snap some pics with my cell phone camera.

I quickly took two pictures and I continued to watch the object continue it's course until it was completly out of my sight (heading due west).

So I started in the back yard, facing east, and walked to the front yard, facing west, and watched it until my polarized sunglasses (which helped see the object for a much further distance) were of no use and the object was gone.

I then was curious to see what my photos had produced.

There was nothing in the sky that I could see on my pictures.

I had some of the neighboring house tops in as references to possibly size and distance the object, but nothing of the object was visible.

I was then a little un-nerved about this.

A photo expert may be able to find something or I may have not gotten the object into view while taking them.

I honestly cannot say, but I did make an honest effort to capture the object on two pictures.

Either way I was extremely disappointed.

I have never seen anything like it before.

I feel fortunate to have seen something that I could not identify.
