Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 seconds
Very large triangular craft moved silently and darkly (no lights) very fast through dark Columbus OH night.

Very large triangular object, completely dark (no lights whatsoever) and no sound whatsoever(!) moved very quickly at approx 1-2 miles overhead (guess). This UFO was very large (It was defintiely triangular being approx 3 -4 football fields wide at back by the same in length (again a guess)). It was moving quickly through the sky.. duration from immediate happenchance view directly overhead to passing out of sight approx 10 - 15 seconds. This thing did not mean to be seen! Completely by chance I looked up and saw it. The night sky had just enough illumination to be able to see this large dark object. The site area was approx 3 miles from downtown Columbus. I have never seen anything like this in my 42 years of age and it has taken me 10 years to report it ( I was 32 at the time)... I am a professional businessman and father of two children, college-educated and very scientific-minded but skeptical of possibilities of likely Ets in this universe being able to travel light year distances to be here but I am convinced this was not a craft from this world. I am certain..
