Large black triangle with red lights, hovering very low over national box-store.

Driving home at dusk, I saw a very large black triangular craft. It was hovering at low altitude in the middle of a suburban shopping area, right outside of the City of Richmond. I was smoking a cigarette so the window was down, but I heard nothing out of the ordinary. This object was completely silent. I got a very good look at it when stopped at a traffic light. It was hovering right over a national box-store, at no more than twice the hight of the building itself.

This triangular craft was immense! If I had to estimate its size, I’d say it was at least that of a football field, if not larger. It was an isosceles triangle, black in color, except for seven red circular lights on the underside of the craft. Each vertex had a large-sized light, and there was another at the triangle’s center. From this larger center light there ran a row of three smaller red lights, down to the unequal side’s edge.

It was astounding to see this extraordinary object juxtaposed on a perfectly typical, American landscape scene. Its been tough to forget this, and I've yet to rationalize what I saw as being anything other than a "UFO." Thus I figured it was time to submit my report.
