Posted: 2/16/1999
Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3-4 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I saw a triangle craft, huge, black, white light in each corner, red light in center, hovering above me at about 200-300 feet altitude.

I exited the Doubletree Hotel, on IH 35 north, central Austin, looked up and saw the craft. It was motionless, silent, huge (like something 8 inches across, held arms length).I stared at it for about 3-4 minutes, awestruck, then became afraid, ran to my car to leave. I felt that the occupants knew I saw them, were aware of my thoughts, & that scared me. The sky was still dark but it showed up well, the white lights were so bright and reflected on the body of the craft. The red central light was a little smaller that the corner lights. I don't know how long it was there, since I left after a last glance at it from my car window. It was real, very real, and I never forgot it.
