Duration:about 30 seconds
saw a triangle looking craft at 4:30

at about 4:20 i was reading my magazine and i noticed that there was much fog,even though i could see the full moon brightly.i work night shift at a local trucking firm doing security.the guard shack faces south towards the hwy. out here.so you get the idea north is behind me and east is to my left and west is to my right.well i am used to seeing airplanes and jets over my area cause that is the route they take before they land in st.louis' lambert field.well like i said i was reading my magazine when this jet sound was coming over me....it started to get louder and louder and louder.i was thinking to myself how odd that a jet sound is getting louder...so i went outside the door which faces north,i looked up and low and behold this triangle shape plane was cruising right over me..about 40-50 mph i would say.it had white lights(two) on each tip of the wing.i noticed that on its underbelly it had 4 little lights in diamond form.i was freaking out cause i have never seen such a sight.never.it looks heavy and strong if you can follow that.it looked like the bat plane they use now in the airforce which i guess it might have been all along but why would it be going north since i heard that scott's airforce base is way, way far south east of me in Ill.anyway i ran to my car and drove across the parking lot of my jobsite...to see if i can still see it.all i could see was its tail lights...thats what theylooked like to me...like red lights going across its tail...the red lights were on but they were pulsating.after that i called a radio station to see if anyone reported anything..nope,i called the localjack in the box,they didn't hear a thing.i called the local little airfield nearby,all i got was the answering service.afterwards i felt really wird like i saw something i wasn't supposed to...well i take that back, i reported something back in 98 on here as well...when i was living in corpus christi texas.what i saw there was a black plane with no lights and or sound.it was just gliding very fast.it looked like a b 25 liberator.that was at arounf 3 or 4 in the morning as well.
