|Orange Triangular Craft in Pursuit
Upon driving eastward out of Ames, the three of us noticed what appeared at first to be an orange triangle shaped object about 2 miles in front of us. As we approached the object, it seemed to be growing bigger and also seemed to be getting closer although we had slowed down. At this point, we turned the car around and started driving back toward Ames. As we drove, the object continued to get bigger and grow closer. The object seemed to maneuver toward us using very square and sudden turns. As we approacted the outskirts of Ames, the object dropped it's pursuit and left the area very suddenly. The objects altitutde appeared to be 600-800 ft.
One of the passengers of our vehicle has had a background with numerous sitings of unidentifiable objects in the past. He has a broad understanding of aircraft design.
