Posted: 10/31/2008
Location: Lebanon, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5-15 minutes
While driving east on New Route 50 leaving Lebanon, IL a very large, triangle shaped craft was flying very low and very slow directly over my vehicle. I could clearly see the bottom of the craft through my moon roof. The object took several seconds to move from the right side of my vehicle to the left and I could see it was black, triangular in shape and had many red lights on the bottom center of the craft. As it moved across the highway I got a clear view of the back. It had a tall, rectangular piece running perpendicular in the middle of the rear of the craft. Along this tall, rectangular object were red and white lights running up and down. The back of the craft was shaped like a long rectangle and had huge circular light on each end. Many lights were coming off the top creating an aura of bright white light. It proceeded to move across the sky very slowly and then turned west to head back towards Lebanon/Fairview Heights area. It was so large, as it moved west and I moved east I could still see its lights in the sky when I reached St. Rose road, approximately 25 miles from where the craft was flying. It was definitely not an airplane, a blimp, or anything I have every seen in our skies before.
