A night in Wisconsin that a small group of people will never forget with a flying triangle craft above our car.

I was ten years of age, growing up in a small farming community, when this took place. My mom, myself,her best friend and her three children were going to the roller skating rink 13 miles from our homes. As we were traveling along the highway there was a bright light that appeard to be coming from all around us....but very intense from the back window. My moms' friend was driving and she was very upset, believing that some "idiot" was driving to close to us.( This stretch of road was usually busy with big trucks)...she then pulled over to let them pass us......but it didn't end there. The light didn't go away.....She got out of the car as did the rest of us, to see what was happening. We all saw the object above the car. It appeared to be triangular, the entire underside of it just pure intense white light. If we had all stood on each others sholders, we could have touched it. None of us were afraid( I guess I don't know why ) It moved so slow, as if it would fall out of the sky at any moment....There was no sound what so ever. Years later we all have talked about this and it hasn't left my thoughts all these years. When I went to my ten year reunion....I spoke to my friend who had been in the car with us...He also stated that the encounter was something that he never forgot. I want to say that what is so amazing is that none of us can remember what happened after...Did we go roller skating...did we go home....None of us remember....We never checked to see if there was any time loss(as there was not as much information back then about what can happen if such an event occurs.....Several years later there were numerous cow mutilations on local farms.......nothing was investigated , and the police had nothing to say...They treated us like we were all crazy(only saying that they probably had been killed by animals)......I have often thought about going under hypnosis to see if I can remember anything else about what happened or didn't happen....Was it a UFO? I can't answer the question and may never remem! ber anym ore detail.....But this is my story, of what happened that night, that had such a huge impact on all of us. Even though we can't remember anymore of what happened that night; we still like to talk about it .........and just wonder.
