On the forth of july a couple years ago i saw a very large dark triangle shaped craft just above the clouds that would stay mostly covered by the clouds the sometimes hung out for breif moment longer then others just to slide back like it was using the cloud to hide .before the fireworks during and for a short while after .it was shooting out multiple red lights"ships"that would travel outward past the horizon in some cases but the entire time was suround by the either going into the large craft or leaving .the smaller "crafts" allmost flew like the sloweed down films of spores and the the would take a very fluid,fast controll.when "landing"they would even wait ,circle .and slow down before disapearing into the mass.this was not a helicopter as reported by the paper the nextt day .this was seen by many people .i was in urbandale looking towards the park were the carnival was the larger and the small ships were the other direction of the park but still aboove my location.i could go on and on about this it was amazing.
