|Large triangular craft going east over the Atlantic Ocean.
On July 20th, 1980, I was an employee working security at the St. Lucie Nuclear power plant. At that time they had remote outpost from the plant and not within the confines of the nuclear plant itself. Afterwards, I became a Florida State Trooper.
I was alone, and at approx 1300 hours, I was looking at a clear night sky, looking for falling stars and just gazing at the night sky, it was a very well moonlight type of night.
All of a sudden overhead at approx 2,000 feet, I began to see an object coming from the West heading to the east towards the Ocean. The craft was dark and all I could see at first was a nose cone type shape. As the object passed directly overhead, I realize the enormous size of this triangular ship with NO sound. It had to be aircraft carrier size and it was just floating by slowly. I was in just awe of this thing and scared out of my wits.
I could distinctly see port hole type windows on this perfectly triangle craft and I estimate that the thickness of its sides to be maybe 3 stories high. As it passed I could also see 3 distinct circular huge propulshion systems with no sound and emitting a unbelievable white glow where we would normally see jet engines.
I watched this craft go out over the Atlantic Ocean heading East until it disappeared from my sight.
By this time I expected the entire plant to be going crazy and the radios going crazy, BUT there was not one single radio transmission or alarm and nothing was said.
At the end of my shift, I expected someone to also say something about what I observed, but no one did? The only person I told this too was my mother and for the past 34 years, I never told anyone else about this incident.
At the time I couldn't imagine a flying craft in the shape of a triangle, until I saw the "Phoenix Lights." Until then I thought maybe I was hallucinating or dreaming. But I think of this incident often and can clearly see it in my memory as if it was yesterday.
When I saw what happened in Phoenix, Arizona, it gave me more credence as to what I observed 34 years ago.
