National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/1/1994 22:00 (Entered as : 1994 22:00)
Reported: 6/22/1999 18:30
Posted: 7/5/1999
Location: Montgomery, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I was coming back to my college dorm at Auburn University at Montgomery -AUM (after grocery shopping one night) and I saw "something" hovering over the AUM watertower (the watertower is really TALL and HUGE). There were 3 white lights spaced in a triangular pattern and I believe the lights were circular in shape. There was absolutely no sound. I began to franticly flash my high beams and low beams over and over again. I wanted the object to notice me so that it would leave the watertower. As I was about a mile away from the object (north of the object), it began to move away in a southern direction. There were no colored lights whatsoever. I thought to myself, why on earth would an object be hovering over a huge watertower within an eighth of a mile of a university. I could not actually see the shape of the craft because it was pitch black night. However, since the lights were triangularly spaced apart, I assume that the craft itself was triangular. I told my mom and girlfiend about this incident but I have never reported it to any ufo agency until now. The weird thing about that night was that it was real quiet. By that I mean I was the only one on that road (no other vehicles) and there was strange silence. I will never, ever forget that night.
