Dark Triangular shaped 1 blue/white light aft of center of ship

Feb. 9, 2007 @ 0445, I69 North, Ft. Wayne IN I travel the same route at the same time everyday and have for the last 7 years. Have never seen anything out of the ordinary until this morning. I always watch the stars and know the constellations, as they are the same everyday.

This morning I noticed a blue-white light in the sky, similar to an LED type light. This light did not appear to move in any direction and was not a star, planet, helicopter or airplane. I noticed that the stars that should have been in that part of the sky were no longer visible because something was blocking them out.

As I approached Ft. Wayne, the light appeared brighter but still wasn’t moving. I pulled over to the side of the road and came to a complete stop. When I got out of my truck to observe the object in the sky, it blended in nearly perfectly with the night sky but was one or two shades darker. The blue-white light was near the rear of the craft on the belly. The light was round in shape with conical shaped protrusion coming off the bottom. The light was bright but you could see through it enough to identify the structure emitting the light. The light was not in the shape of a beam or floodlight but rather was more iridescent. All the edges of the craft distorted the night sky similar to the heat you see shimmering off of a hot blacktop road surface. The object was triangular in shape but turned on its side, resembling a wedge, with the point facing northwest. It was moving at an extremely slow rate. There was no sound. There were no other distinguishing features to describe.

I had to continue on my way turning northwest with the object; it remained constant in the sky until I headed south and lost site of it.

I called 911 in Ft. Wayne (Allen Co.) and reported the object and was told that there had been several other reports of the same thing. The dispatcher that took my information was very dismissive.
