Location: Carbondale, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:45 sec
I saw a metalic triangle with semi-cirles at the points traveling above the tree line N to NW at 3:35 PM. It picked up speed and left.

The object was traveling N to NW above the tree line. It was triangular shaped with semi-circles at each point of the triangle. The objects color was silver. The tecture of the mechanical object seemed to be similar to a brushed aluminum. I was about 20 to 30 feet from it at my eye level on the 7th floor of the apartment building that I live in. It seemed to be about 3to 5 feet across at the bottom. It caught my eye outside my patio so I went to investigate. I stood there and watched it travel (like it was floating) horizontally right in front of me. When it noticed me the flat side of the pyramid rotated on its axis and faced me. I remember a flash of light that came from the center of the object. I watched it pick up speed and travel N. At this point I went inside to tell someone to step outside and look at this thing in the sky. He came out and it was gone.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this individual, and he sounded to us to be quite objective and credible. We have encouraged the witness to try to locate other potential witnesses in the area, who may have observed the same object. PD))
