|Triangle shaped craft with three red lights at points hovering over Grants Pass, Oregon.
Late on January first, me and two friends were driving in Grants Pass, Oregon. I noticed out the passenger window two red lights hovering in the sky. It was hovering in the air, much too low for any aircraft that I would normally see. It was dark, and cloudy, but the moon still kept in light enough to see. I watched it for a few more seconds, confused as to what I was really seeing. I pointed in the sky, and asked my friends if they saw taht was well. As we kept driving, we could see it from underneath and to the side. The UFO was a wide triangular shape, with two red lights that sort of blinked at each end on the back. At the front tip was another light, and underneath there seemed to be another light closer to the front. The craft was dark, and thick. It was close enough that I could see the wings were the thick side angles. The craft was sleek, like a jet, but wider then anything I have seen. We all grabbed our cameras and pulled the car over. As we did t! hough, the craft (still hovering in the same spot) begin to rise. We got out of the car and the craft was higher in the sky. Then, it turned to the right while staying in the same spot, about 90 degrees, and begin flying away. It moved away from us fast, and was too far to take a picture. Within mintues we had seen this craft hovering above the city, then turn to face the right in the same position, and leave. No military type craft can hover in one spot and then turn on a dime like that. Another strange thing was that there was no noise that came from the craft, it was silent.
