Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
It was black with a bunch (100 or more) small white lights (Like a christmas tree/decoration) and hovered silently.

I am updating this to try and be as accurate as possible. I was around 12-13 years old and my mom and I were travelling from El Dorado to Hampton (Northly direction) to see one of her friends around 7:00-8:00 at night. My Step-dad was with us but he was sleeping. To get to Hampton from El Dorado you must drive over a bridge (as it is the only bridge within a 20 mile radius and the Ouchita river is fairly large). As we approached the bridge (it's in a small town by the name of Calion) my mom looked to the left and said "I wonder what that is ?" As I looked we saw a triangle shaped object/craft hovering over the river. It was black in color and had a bunch of white small lights (like you would see on a Christmas tree/decoration) all underneath(100 or more). (It was similiar to the craft reported by the person in Owen Sound, Canada in 9/2/83 but the lights did not pulse or blink). It hovered the whole time we watched (my mom had slowed the car down to a crawl by now). It was about 150 yards away from us, right above the trees, directly over the river and 3/4 the size of a football field. It made no sound (we had our windows down) and shot off into the sky like a missle/rocket from a complete standstill. I have read reports stating it may be that UFO's use water as fuel and I have often wondered if it was just "re-fueling" while hovering directly over the river. I was never interested in UFO's until my mom and I saw this object/craft that night. The sky was clear and you could definitly see the shape and size. I have told many people my story but I was so glad to find this web site and document what we saw. It's good to know others have had strange unexplained sightings. The image has been in my mind ever since I saw it and will probaly remain forever. Keep up the good work. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE. WE ARE NOT ALONE! You may contact me by e-mail if you have any questions. Remember this was years ago and brains have destroyed some of my beer cells by now but I will answer to the best of my mem! ory.
