Location: Newtown Square, PA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minuts
cars stopped, triangular craft on ground, rose up in air, quiet low humming sound, white light on each corner, in seconds it was gone

My mother was driving my brother and I to Lancaster, PA (I think it was a Friday) one evening, somewhere just out side of Newtown Square, PA before Goshen. It was route 3 and we were heading toward West Chester. There used to be what was called 'the Nikie sight.' It was some sort of military installation with radars. (I wish I could remember more details about his facility and even how to spell it. (I moved out of the area in 74) Within a couple of years that facility was no longer there.) I was between 10 and 12 years old (my brother was 3 years older).

It was starting to get dark. We saw one huge triangular shape on the ground. We saw many other cars parked along the road looking at this. So we pulled over as well. People had gotten out of their cars watching in amazement. "what is this thing?" It was just sitting there. Within minutes of watching it it suddenly lifted straight up in the air, very low humming sound, at which point we could clearly see the triangular shape with a white light on each of the three corners. It looked like a triangular shaped donut, because as i vaguely recall we could see a triangular shape hole in the center that we could see the sky through it. I can remember the people around us saying, "What is this thing?" As soon as it was a couple hundred feet up in the air it took off so fast and was out of sight. We heard a sound of wind, like a wooosh and it was instantly gone out sight.

One UFO special on TV showed actual home video of a triangular shaped craft, through the trees showed a craft with 3 lights on each corner. The second I saw it, the hair on the back of my neck stood up. That was exactly what I had seen back in the mid 60's. Approximate date, hard to say I know I was between the age of 10 and 12.

I wish I had spoken out about this sooner. But i was reluctant to tell my story until i hearing more and more people testifying of the same thing.

I am currently 53 years old (as of 2009). I have always wondered, if this is something of our own military, why would it not have been revealed by now. I would love to know who other than my mother and brother was parked along the road that night. Because i am sure that other information could substantiate further out eyewitness account.
