Iím 29 years old, Caucasian male, and currently work as head of maintenance for an apartment building in downtown Detroit. I donít make a practice of telling lies or wild stories; I donít do any drugs, and have no criminal record. Iím not too worried about my privacy as I have nothing to hide, and if anyone has more questions about my sighting I would be happy to try and answer them.

I was on the thirteenth floor of the apartment building I work for in downtown Detroit. It was a very sunny day, and something in the sky was reflecting the sun light and it caught my eye. At first I thought it was one of those silver looking aluminum balloons a child might have, but it seemed to be moving towards me at a high rate of speed as it was now much to large to be a childís balloon. I can now make out the shape of the craft as it seems to have stopped in mid-air only a few hundred feet outside the window Iím standing at.

It has a clover shape to it.. Three disk shapes connected in the center, with a sort of bulged center area. At this point the craft starts to rotate up on its side, so that the bottom of the craft is facing towards me. I see a blinking red light in the center of the craft and each clover has a large white circular light on it taking up most of the area of the bottom of these three disks. Itís very hard to explain the features of the craft in words.

So at this point itís been maybe 30-40 seconds that Iíve been watching this thing, and itís now hovering at a 90 degree angle to me just a few hundred feet out my window on the thirteenth floor. I start to get the feeling this thing knows I see it and it can see me, as it suddenly displays a light sequence of blue, green, white, and red in an extremely fast flickering pattern. I donít know how else to describe this light array other than hypnotic in nature, it lasted only a few seconds and when the light show was over, the craft rotated back down from the right angle it was at, and floated off in a south easterly direction (basically directly over Comerica Park) until I lost sight of it.

This is absolutely 100% the truth, and the strangest experience Iíve ever had in my life. Iím not the type of person who looks for these kinds of things or believes every conspiracy theory out there, more than anything else I hope maybe someone else reported the same thing and I can help confirm there story.
