Location: Louisiana, LA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 MIN.
I was hitch hicking. It was late and I walked off the main highway on a paved road that ran perpendicular. I had walked about half a mile. It was pitch black that night only dim starlight but suddenly it got darker and that caused me to look up. Above me was a huge triangle. It was much longer along the back side than it was to the tip. It's size to me was the most impressive, I can only guess but it was very close to me and seemed to be at least a mile wide at the base of the triangle, which was the back of it and the longest part. It had a dim,circular light at the tip and also on the right and left sides of the base of it. No other lights and not a sound could I hear from the thing. It was moving at first, it seemed, about 10-15 miles an hour at about 100ft in hight. Then as it passed me it began to increase in speed, at first gradually, then seemed to accelorate beyond possiblity and was gone. Never a sound and the amazing thing was I was never scared at all which seems to me very odd. Oh yea the thing was aparently black but I'm not sure I could of seen a color it was so dark. The lights had an off white or even yellow tent to them. They were very dim.
