2 sighting a month apart, 1st being red lights engulfing my car, 2nd being 3 triangle crafts in a circle formation with white lights.

I stumbled across this site in an effort to find out information about some very bright red lights that hovered over my car in 1979 in Thomasville, NC.

I was driving home and red lights engulfed my car, with no noise, no sighting of craft. I remember being scared out of my mind and driving like a maniac to reach my home about 5 miles away. Being only 16 at the time and unaware of the silent helicopters that have red lights that the military had, of course I thought it was an alien spaceship. I was to scared and drivng about 100 miles an hour to ever look up. Maybe the military personal were spying inside my car thinking what a hot chick...lol.

It is sorta funny now but now knowing some of the military craft info now...it explains the event to a certain degree. The lights did leave my car and I never knew where they went, as of course I didn't look to see in fear I was going to have a wreck, just as the dudes operating the craft probally thought themselves and laid off of me.

It wasn't a month later that I was on a date and we both saw 3 triangle shapes with white glowing lights just sitting still in the sky in a circle pattern about 2 miles from where the red light stuff happened, same road acually. I know that were at at stand still because I compared them to the stars in the sky to see which way they were moving. I wanted to follow them. but they were not going anywhere. We just drove off on our way to eat.

I haven't seen anything else in my life, not that I have been looking for it! I have found myself here and there stare into the sky looking for something strange, but not enough I guess. I couldn't of been the only person to experience this crap. Now with the Stealth fighter unveiled, that expains that sighting also.

I went years thinking that I had experienced a true UFO sighting(s), I am relieved now that I know facts that explain them away. Unless a creature actually comes up to me, I will not be scared of these sightings anymore.

Being in a military state we all must understand that certain crafts have to exist and be tested in secret. I am not saying that aliens do not exist, but to go along with most scientists, to reach Earth would be a far reach! I do understand people's fears about the unknown, I suffered myself, for years!!!

I have no idea why these crafts were in our area of NC...about 3 hours from the coast, but guessing it was just for a test run....huh?
