Location: Upper Lisle, NY
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1-2 minutes
Silent slow moving huge dark grey triangular craft with 3 lights in each corner.

Dark grey triangular shaped craft with 3 lights in each corner moved silently and slowly from south to north, just above the trees. I would guess it to be at least 150-200 feet at it's widest point.

This occurred when I was a child (about 8 or 9 years old) and could have happened in the summer of 1969. I was camping with my family in Upper Lisle Park but was alone fishing in pond in a somewhat secluded area about 1000 feet south of Upper Lisle Rd. and 300 feet west of Whitney Point Reservoir.

I was facing north at dusk as the craft came directly over me and continued moving north at a speed I would judge at about 5-10 miles an hour. I watched until the trees to the north of me blocked my view. I ran back to the campsite thinking everyone there would have seen it and would be talking about it. However no one was, and afraid of being ridiculed, I did not tell anyone that day of my experience. I figured since it flew just above the trees, the trees must have blocked their view. Plus it made no noise and it was getting dark.
