Summary : Huge triangular shaped object. Slow speed and low altitude. Passed directley over my position. No sound except wind rushing past. NE direction and never swerved, swayed, turned or changed speed. Light shown on ground, briefly.
While coming home from working the 4-12 shift as a Police Officer, I noticed an "airplane" flying in the direction in which I was traveling. After driving a few miles, I noticed that the "airplane" was still on it's course. It should have been far away by that time. I was curious, but soon forgot about it. As I was turning onto the final rode that leads to my housing plan, I noticed that the "airplane" was still there.The PLan where I lived was on the highest point in the area and as I got to the Plan, my visibility was practically unlimited except for some trees. I could see the "airplane"better at this point and I suspected that it was a helicopter because of the slow speed. The "helicopter" displayed a search type light at the ground and I thought it was a medical helicopter looking for a landing zone. I've seen helicopters do this in my capacity as a Police Officer, and I was worried that someone might have been badly injured in my neighborhood. While thinking these thoughts, the "helicopter" turned off the search light and continued in a straight line heading directly toward my housing plan.I hurried my vehicle to a point where I figured the "helicopter" would pass over, and I turned off my head lights. Then I shut off my engine and got out of the vehicle to get a better look at the "helicopter". When I got out of the vehicle and looked up in the sky, I noticed that I was not looking at a helicopter, airplane, blimp or anything I could recognize. I was looking at a triagular shaped craft with a light at each point, smaller lights were dotted underneath as this was my point of reference, and no strobe lights like a commercial aircraft would have. The object made no sound, although it seemed to me that I could hear wind rushing past. Faintly, albeit. The altitude was very low, a few hundred feet or less, and the speed was radically slow. The object was huge.the night was crystal clear and warm, and I saw it but can't believe what I saw. It has taken me this long to report it. I told this story to Mike Frizzell of the Enigma Project and he told me to write to you.
