Three day sighting spectacular!

Just moved here from Fresno CA. I have had only 2 other sightings in my life. None of which compared at all to what I have seen on the dates of 10-05-05 through 10-07-05.

The first night, I was stuck outside of the house (keys were not made yet) waiting for my girlfriend and her family to come back home. We live in a residential area nearby the airport, and Malstrom AFB is about 10 or so miles away.

Around 9:30 pm, I saw 2 shapes outlines under the clouds.. pitch black.. large boomerang shape, no lights, not a sound.. at arms distance, they would be about the size of my hand. One was slightly smaller, or further away. I have no idea how high the clouds were that night, but I felt they were close.

I didn't think much of the sighting at first.. there were lots of large birgs flying south, and I had seen them in the day time, flying in similar formation. But I kept my eye in the sky.

About 5 minutes later, a few more went nearly overhead, no sound, same shape.. but these were not birds, or crazy hang-gliders. They seemed to be going to slow to stay in the sky, but really how can you know how fast they are going.

After that.. I saw something that made me scream literally... And cuss... just a bit. A triangle shape, with two rows of lights on all sides came just over a nieghbors house, about 200 ft. down the road.. silent. Then stopped completely, and stood up as to show off... and sat for maybe 3 or four seconds.. and faded into the stars...

I am surprized I didn't get shot at for yelling like that.. my heart was pounding.. and no one else was seeing this.

After some more sightings.. and around 10:00.. the family pulled up, and I told them what I had seen. After a few jokes...haha, and unloading the car at light speed, I was out in the driveway again. My girlfriend stayed inside. I ended up seeing "something" 32 times that night.

The next night about 16, and the last night, I stayed up until past 4 in the am.. and saw roughly 44 of these... altogether, a a few triangles, and even a circle shaped craft.. my girlfriend and I together have seen well over a dozen... and even her mom saw one nearby.. and well, shes not one to give in easily...

I know the airbase is nearby, but the people here say that the runway at the base is shut down, and they are flying out of the airport... Unfortunatly, I haven't seen anything since...

I believe these are not experimental.. and why would they fly them right over the city all night... "Electric City" at that.

I don't have internet access my self, but I had to get this report down.. so I am at the library.

If you have any other questions, or any other reports of this, please contact me .. I know others have seen these craft... unless the people here didn't look up on those days.

Have a great day! ((name deleted))
