Hello, my name is ((name deleted)) and I am a member of the ((deleted/military)).

I believe I saw a UFO in Minot ND, early Sunday Morning, 19 Oct, at about 1am.

I was standing with a friend outside a meeting house when she noticed, then I saw, a figure, which looked like a Triangle with a Tail. It was pretty far up, but differed from the surrounding stars. It was moving from South, towards North.

I tried to call the Minot Airport Tower, but no answer. When observed with binoculars, the object arrayed its lights as blurred, while the stars surrounding were bright and cleared.

While we were watching this object, a USAF Jet flew under it and left a Chem. Trail.

Also, we observed at least five shooting stars through the 2 hours of observing this object.

I tried to take a picture with a digital camera, but it didn’t show up on film.

Have there been sightings of UFO’s that are Triangular, with a tail?
