details of my first sighting of triangle in Hermantown. I don't know its altitude, but it took up half my windshield!

first of all, i'd like to say i'm very excited to share my observations with this site(which i just discovered). In roughly august 2001, i was driving northbound on highway 53 through hermantown. when i got to the dopplar radar, my friend's dad(itting shotgun), pointed to a "airplane" on the left side of the road. i thought nothing of it at first, but then realized it was much too large to be a commercial jet and started watching it. the craft continued to cross the highway directly over my car. i stopped right on the highway(as other motorists sped by!) the craft took up over half my windshield relatively-wise and i saw it clear as day. the most striking characteristic to me was that the craft did not seem aerodynamic at all! it was like a triangle, blocky ship(like a triangle brick, very thick)ttom. it was not smooth and was covered in what i can only describe as"piping and ductwork" this thing looked like it should just drop from the sky like a brick. it was equilateral with had a large white light on each corner and a blinking red light in the center.i got out of my car to listen and there was no noise. i know this thing landed just over the treeline, not more than 500 ft from hwy 53! it was right next to the ANG base(which is definitely in operation, by the way) on the right side of road by Pure Pleasures and the national weather service Dopplar station. this was the most exciting thing i have ever seen and it gave me newfound faith in the strength of the US military. if this thin could carry troops or tanks, it will change warfare forever. i watch the sky by hermantown everytime i drive by it; and i'm willing to bet this craft lands here every day around 10-1030. i have seen the light pattern numerous times(app. 4-5)n, but never anywhere near as close as my first sighting. this ship has enormous capabilities, possibly cloaking( in one daytime sighting, the ship seemed to be the same blue as the horizon, only the bright lights showing) it also moves very fast(one evening sighting, the tri-light pa! ttern wa s over the treetops traveling south parrallel with the highway seemed to kick it down and go really fast towards hermantown. this light pattern was as big as a nickle relatively speaking.) sorry if this message is too long, but i'm excited that theres an organization that studies this type of thing. i dont want to jeopardize national security, but this craft is real and I personally believe it is based out of the hermantown air national guard base. your investigators best time would be between 930-1030. there are numerous business parking lots right along the highway. If i owned a camcorder i'd be there already! i just wonder why this craft has been stationed up here so long(at least one year) i hope this information leads you to an equally as amazing sight as we were treated to. Peace ((name deleted))
