Location: Hemet, CA
|My friends and I saw 1 very large, triangular shaped UFO, silently hovering approx: 100 ft in air and about 35 ft away from our car.
Although it has been 10 years since I, along with 2 of my friends, witnessed a triangular shaped aircraft in the sky over an empty field, I recall the details of what we saw quite well.
It was between 9 and 10 p.m., we were travelling on a remote road west bound out of Hemet, Ca to our friends house in Winchester, Ca. I was in sitting in the back seat, my best friend was sitting in front of me and her husband was driving. We were driving about 65 mph, when we saw bright lights hovering in the sky up ahead to our right, My friends Husband slowed way down as we approached the object finally coming to a stop. We stopped the car and we were adjacent to the "UFO", first I was stuck by the size of it, as this thing was about football field sized in width and length. Then I was struck by the absence of any sound, I mean this thing was absolutely silent, also, the object was hovering, and it was only about 100 -150 feet in the air. The air-craft was black or dark in color, with three very large, bright white lights located at each of the triangle points, and there were several smaller more dim lights on each side, also there was a large red light in the center wich was casting a red glow to the ground directly beneath the craft.
We sat there observing this air-craft for a couple of minutes, when my friends husband said he was going to get out and go get a closer look, my friend and I immediately protested telling him that we had seen enough and begged him to please get us out of there. Then the thing started moving further away from us slowly to the norththen in what seemed like an instant it was about 1/2 a mile away and had gaind alot of altitude. We drove on to our friends house wich was only a few more minutes away, as we drove I continued to watch the thing in the sky, and even though it was 1/2 mile away or more it was now west bound and adjacent to us. We arrived at our friends house only to find that no one was home so, we left. My girlfriend and I asked her husband to take the main street home, as the continued presence of the "UFO", was making us very nervous.
We left heading north first then we turned onto the highway heading east bound, once we were heading east, we could see the "UFO" then futher north now but trailing behind us heading northeast. As we rounded the last bend right before you enter the city limits we lost sight of the triangle shaped "UFO".
Over the years my friends and I have discussed the encounter we had with the "UFO", we are not really convinced that this was anything extraterrestrial. Since we are not far from March Air Force Base, the possibility of the air-craft being some kind of new technology the armed forces have is very real. On the other hand, an air-craft that size being able to hover at such a low altitude without any sound, nor causing any kind of, (for lack of a better term) "wind", seems to be impossible. Out of all the people I have spoken to about our sighting I have only found two other people who had seen the same thing in this area. In 2003 I watched a program on the Discovery channel and saw that people all over Arizona, had seen the same thing around the same time we had our sighting. Today I watched another Program on TV stating sightings of this same "UFO" all over the world, and so I thought I should also share my experience as well. I hope this information will help in some way.
