Location: Clovis (on Herndon Ave, between Maine & Locan Avenues), CA
Shape: Triangle
After leaving my house, a friend saw large, slow-moving, triangular shaped craft overhead. Flying low to the ground. Had 3 white lights underneath. No noise.

A friend of mine left my house at approx. 11:10 pm heading west on Herndon Ave. It being a clear night, he looked out his windshield to see the stars. There weren't any. It was then that he noticed a large isosceles triangle shape directly above him. The object was about as big as a football field and had completely blocked out his view of the stars. There were 3 white lights on the underside, one at each corner. The rest of it was dark. It was flying (or floating) very close to the ground, approx. 100 ft. above him. He said it seemed close enough to hit with a rock. He pulled his car off to the right shoulder of the road and turned off the engine and radio. He leaned out the window and looked up to watch the object. There was no noise. He couldn't see how thick the craft was. It hovered silently for a few seconds, slowly rotated to its right, then proceeded to slowly move towards the southwest. Suddenly, it shot upwards and away at an angle with lightning speed going in the same direction. He noticed a sulfer-like smell in the air after it left. There were no cars on that section of the road at the time of his sighting. He immediately drove back to my house and banged on my bedroom window. Thinking he had forgotten his keys or had car trouble, I rushed to open the front door. He looked me right in the eyes and said, "I just saw a UFO!" He was visibly very shaken up. I went out outside into my driveway with him and he explained what he'd seen. I looked in the direction of his sighting but could see nothing. A few weeks later, we were watching an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" that dealt with the UFOs sighted in Belgium. They showed a picture of a large triangular craft with 3 lights on the underside, and he told me that was something like what he'd seen, but without the red light in the center. We decided not to report the sighting until now because he was too shaken up by it at that time. I've known him for quite a long time and I have no reason not to believe him.
