5/15/97 at 22:45pm, son and I saw a 150ft pie wedged shaped craft fly down our valley East to West at 30-40mph at 30ft altitude. At each endtips, one nonflashing light w/one red/one green nonflashing lights at piewedge nose. Almost silent just air flowing over surface. Travelling 7 miles down valley,banked right/banked left then turned south-disappeared. Saw 4 stationary flashing lights at S,W,E,N as if watching the craft at higher altitude.

On 5/15/97 at 10:45pm (22:45), my son and I were out in our back yard (4 1/2acres) when my son asked me "Dad what's that?" I looked up and this is what we saw flying over. The object was approximately 150 feet in length, a long pie wedge shape travelling at approx. 30-40 mph. A white light at each endtip non flashing. On the front of the piewedge (nose) were two lights, one red and one green non flashing. It was about 30 feet off the ground. Made no sound except of air flowing across the surface...very faint. Very dark outside and could not tell color of craft. My son and I watched it travel 7 miles to Bouse (East to West) right down the valley. Made a right hand bank, then a left bank ...turned south and disappeared. It did not increase in speed or in altitude. At the time of the craft's passing there were stationary white flashing lights at the South, West, East and North (helicopters?) as if watching...and were quite abit higher in altitude, maybe a mile up.
