triangular shaped object over SW Ohio, moving very slowly and completely silent
My wife and I were returning from dropping our son off at his mother's house in Midland Ohio. It was somewhere around 10pm in late November or mid December, probably 1994. We decided to take a short-cut over the back roads through the cornfields just outside of Blanchester Ohio. It was very dark, no street lights and no moon, and I noticed some lights approaching us over the cornfields from my left. At first I thought it was a low flying aircraft but it was moving very slowly. I took a second glance at it and noticed that there were three white lights in a triangular formation (one in the front and two to the rear). The lights did not blink and there were no red or blue lights, only white. I was intriqued by the fact that it seemed so close to the ground it must have been coming in for a landing, but I didn't know of any airports close by. Thinking that it must have been in trouble and was attempting a landing in the cornfield, I pulled the car over, turned off the engine and got out to take a closer look. My wife followed. By this time it was crossing the road in front of us. It was and equilateral triangle and appeared to be the size of a small jet flying very low. From our perspective it was about five inches long in the sky. It was a very quiet night... no tree frogs, no crickets and no traffic.... the object made absolutely no sound. We watched it fly over and off into the distance. We live in a flight path and I have seen all sorts of aircraft fly over at all times of the day, It wasn't like any aircraft I had ever seen. I had thought at the time that it must have been an hang glider, but why would anyone be flying a hang glider in Blanchester Ohio after dark and in the middle of winter? Maybe it was an experimental aircraft from Wright Patterson? It wasn't until years later, when I heard of eyewitnesses in Belgium seeing the same sort of objects around the same time that I realized what we had seen. While I have always believed in the possibility of extraterrestrial visitations, I! have al ways been very skeptical when it comes to eyewitness accounts. I'm still not certain that this was extraterrestrial but I am certain that it wasn't like anything I had ever seen before. I have seen all sorts of aircraft (military and civillian), I have seen flares dropped from aircraft, I have seen blue flaming meteorites and hundreds of "shooting stars", I have seen durigables and hot air balloons, I have seen high altitude weather baloons, I have seen satilites.... planets.... and comets. The thing we saw that night wasn't like anything I had ever seen before.
