I was a young man about 9(1984), but I have told this story to anyone who would listen my whole life as proof UFO's are not a myth. I was outside playing by myself on a moonless night and I cant say that I heard it, but I felt it for lack of a better term. It seemed audible but not really. I should have been able to hear it because it was not more than a thousand feet. I could not see the craft directly, but it blocked out the stars as it slowly tracked across town towards Cannon AFB, so I could make out its giant triangular shape easily, although I couldn't see the craft directly. I grew up near the AFB and was fascinated with it. I can remember not getting an "extra-terrestrial" feeling from the craft, but I always assumed it was carrying something to Cannon. The reason I am reporting this is because I went to meet a good friend of mine in Houston, TX just last week and over dinner he described seeing the exact same thing over Houston. He was doing relief work (we are wildland firefighters) and camping at the KOA. He saw a triangle object tracking across the sky. He said it blended in with the sky, but the moonlight was interfearing with its "cloak". Anyway, I know these things were around as early as 1984. I felt it needed to be documented, the seem to be hard to see. Thank you.
