Occurred : 9/1/1998 19:30 (Entered as : Sept. 1998 19:30)
Reported: 7/8/2007 3:37:58 AM 03:37

Location: Dartford Tunnel (near; Kent) (UK/England),
Shape: Triangle
Duration:a few minutes
Dark grey silent hovering triangle with lights on each corner - over England.

I witnessed unexplained aerial activity in England around September 1998.

I was driving down to Maidstone in Kent (in the evening around 7.30 pm approximately) and somewhere on the road after the Dartford tunnel I noticed a bright light like a star in the sky. The reason I especially noticed it was that it did not stay far away as a star would. It seemed to be staying in the same place all the time, so as I drove down the motorway and approached it I literally drove underneath whatever it was.

This places the U.F.O.s to the west of the county and within just a few miles of the outskirts of London.

As I looked up through the car windscreen I saw that the craft was very dark grey/black, triangular shaped, with lights at each corner. I could see that the underside of the object was divided into sections. I wondered if it could have been a Harrier or the "invisible" Stealth bomber or something but I didn't see any wheels hanging down, just the white lights at each corner of the triangle. When I have mentioned this to other people over the years they always ask if there were other vehicles on the motorway but I just cannot remember now - I was far more interested in what was directly above me! It seemed to be hovering and there was absolutely no noise whatsoever. When I told my husband later about this he asked about the noise level. Ovbviously a normal aircraft would have been extremely noisy, especially as it seemed so close to the ground to me, but I definitely did not hear anything. I got the impression that it was hovering.

I see from your reports that other people have seen similar things far more recently which is why I decided to report my own sighting.
