Location: Shanadoah, IA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 Min
Triangler Craft was moving from the east to west about tree top high over our house in the country outside of Shenadoah IA.

It Was about 11:00PM. July 14TH 1998 I was watching T.V. after working in the yard all day. I started hearing a humming noise didn't know at first where it was coming from so I lowered the volume thinking maybe something's wrong with the T.V. The odd noise was still there. After about 5 mins the inside of my home started shaking, vibrating kinda like a small earthquake. I walked to our room where my wife was folding clothes and asked her if she hears anything strange, She told me she was fixing to come ask me the same question. That's when I asked her if she wanted to come with me outside. When we opened the back door to the north we looked up and saw a triangler shaped object. If I had to guess it was moving about 3 miles per hour from an east to west direction. The object was only about as high as the trees on the property. The size from tip to the two rear ends covered a good acre and maybe more. We could not begin to explain let alone compare it to any man made plane, craft, ect. It had four lights one in the very front, one in the middle, and two at each corner at the rear. It was so low we tried to see if maybe there might have been some kind of markings that would explain what the hell we were looking at. Maybe something from nearby Andrews air force base or something we could maybe make sense out of. No such luck. My wife ran over to my moms house and sisters house woke them up to tell them what was going on. My mom, sister, Brother in law, their two kids, My self and my wife witnessed this. It was so strange my sisters two kids were crying it scared them so much. Not to say the rest of us were not affected. Whatever it was, It didn't show any aggression kept moving west till we couldn't see it anymore. We did later in the week after we got a camcorder, got some footage of another what looked like a round ball that would move at will and change colors from white, red, orange and blue, looking from a distance about the size of the moon. Was a Non believer, Now a believer!
