Black Triangle about 75 feet width.

On the night of December 28, 2005 I was sitting in the parking lot of Rockford College off East State Street in the College Security Vehicle. At that time we had light bars, and spot lights on the vehicles as well as a programable police scanner to monitor activity near the college, or the response of emergency equipment when requested. I had just finished updating my report and saw a low flying object approaching from the west with white flashig lights on the edges and a red flashing light. At first I thought it might be a lifeline helicopter coming into land at Saint Anthoy Hospital to the east of the campus. As I watched it approach, I realized it was flying perfectly level, extremely slow and about 100 - 200 feet off the ground. When it came close enough to identify, I was surprised to see it was a very low profile black triangle shaped ship of some sort. The ship paused and seemed to hover perfectly still over the campus above me. I looked at it very closely for several minutes it just hung there without any sound or engine noise. I notice on the bottom a cylinder type object - if you took the lid off a skippy peanut butter jar, and place it on the bottom of a black triangle you would have the image I saw plus 3 white lights at the corner of the black triangle. Every inch of it was pitch black in color. Being excited, I aimed the spotlight in the direction of the craft and turned it on and my lightbar flashers. The craft immediately changed from stationary to traveling at an extremely high speed beyond that of the speed of sound into a higher elevation and southern direction before disappearing. I estimate the length of the craft was about 75 feet across and a perfect triangle shape. Being an former Air Force Security Police Law Enforcement Specialist/Sgt - I have seen most if not all the current military aircraft. I also have a relative to an inlaw who works on black projects, and it isn't one of theirs.. that he would let me know of.

If it had been he would have asked me not to talk about it, and I wouldn't have filed this report.
