On our way to return a rental truck we witnessed a craft/a warship/battlestar intersect us, then pull off the ground, then propel itself at an unbeleivable rate into space.

it was approximately 10:30 pm, October of 1998, the month of record tornadoes in Oklahoma. The five of us were returning a rental truck to lawton, we started our journey from Anadarko. We were following the rental truck, a co-worker and I were on a 58 belair, a classic, and in great shape, it was warm that night, I remember that, the windows were rolled down, anyway, we were following the truck, when we decided to pull off to get a coke. The other party kept going, we took maybe 8 minutes or so, before getting back on the road. We were traveling about 80 mph when looking forward and to our left, we noticed what appeared to be two cars chasing each other traveling perpendicular to our path. We continued our descent into the small valley, we continued to watch the cars chase. As we started our ascend up to the top, it appeared the cars would crash into us. My partner yelled "hit the brakes" we lost control temporarily of the car, but managed to get control back. As I looked right, I could see him pressed up againt the windsheild, staring at the object. The ship stopped, and raised up about twenty feet above us. I glanced up and seen what appeared and very prevalent to be a battleship. The warship was jet black, with red symbols all over it. The image that sticks in my mind is that of the television show battlestar galatica. It looked like a battlestar minus the downward fins it dragged. The ship was heavily armored, but did not have any turrets or missles on it. One thing I could feel from the ship it was a battlecruiser. I glanced forward up the road, I noticed no sound at all with the exception of the car. Then as I looked ahead the entire area lit up bright orange as if it was daylight. I looked up at the ship again, it was there hovering, then it just went straight up, so quickly it reminded me of Star Trek, when the enterprise goes into warp, it looked like that. It disappeared. I now know why the government has been hiding the existence of UFO's, There are many wars going on around us, we know noth! ing of t hem. That battlecruiser was here observing missle launches going on at lawton. It was not a saucer or cigar, or anything like that, this was a battleship, why would they send a battleship? We need to ((three words deleted)) together!!!!
