Duration:3 and one half minutes
I am an employee of the Oregon Dept. of Transportation. I possess a Bachelor of Science degree with minors in Speech Communication and Physical Education and Health from Eastern Oregon University.

While on a routine road patrol 18 miles east of my home town of Bend, Oregon, I saw a black triangle with no lights cross US Highway 20 in front of me. This highway connects Bend with eastern Oregon (Burns) and western Idaho.

I stopped my state vehicle, turned off the lights and the engine, stepped outside and stood on the shoulder of the highway. The sky was perfectly clear, with an almost perfect full moon, lots of light in the sky.

The object passed over the top of me as I stood outside of my vehicle. The object was totally and completely silent, no noise whatsoever, and no lights to speak of at all.

I have shared this with only my wife and several co-workers simply by virtue of this being the first time anything like this has ever happened to me.

Unfortunately, I was alone during the occurrence; I have no way of proving anything, but, I know what I saw and have no reason to fabricate a story such as this, since I am a skeptic.
