Pyramidal, invisible/black UFO sighting on the highway in Liberty county Montana

I feel a bit awkward writing this, since my sighting was so dull. I’ve never really been compelled to write or talk to anyone about it, since nobody else saw it, nor would they take it for truth.

It didn’t have any fancy lights, no sounds, and nothing was really extraordinary about it. I’ve read a lot of reports of sightings and seen a lot of videos of people who have apparently filmed UFOs, and they all seem really exciting. My sighting wasn’t very spectacular, but nonetheless, I know what I saw.

I was 15 years old at the time, and we were on our way home, heading west from Havre, MT. We were driving in an extended cab pickup on US Hwy 2. It was a wonderful summer night.

I can’t remember the exact date, but I do remember it was during the summertime. It was warm outside and the stars were all shining brightly, but unfortunately there was no moon.

I was sitting in the backseat with my mom (whom was sleeping), and my sister and brother in law were up front; my brother in law doing the driving. Everyone was quiet and we were listening to the radio, but I’m not sure what was playing at the time

At some point, I had gotten tired of watching the boring road ahead of us and decided to look out the back window at the stars. The stars were really bright, since we were in the middle of nowhere and it was such a clear night anyway. We had just passed Joplin, MT and it was about 10pm or so when I saw it. It was moving slowly about 20 feet from the ground and on an interception course with our pickup. It was heading SW.

As we were traveling there was a light nearby next to a radio tower and between us and the tower, the UFO moved past the tower, becoming invisible as it passed by the light. It made its way, silently, across the highway behind us. I could barely make out what it looked like. It was definitely pyramidal in shape, as I could see it from the side. It looked black in the night sky, but when it passed the light, it was invisible.

When I first saw it, it seemed like my eyes were playing tricks on me, until it passed across the road. It happened so fast, I didn’t even know what I saw until after it had disappeared into the night. None of my family believed me! That partly discouraged me from telling anyone else. The duration of the sighting also discouraged me.

Like I said, it was completely silent, nearly invisible, flying slowly (same speed as we were driving), partly moving in tune with our direction, keeping up with our vehicle for a short time.

I never saw anything like it again, but wished I had. Ever since that sighting, I have been interested in other people’s UFO sightings. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen many convincing videos or convincing stories. I’m sure a lot of people make up sightings for fun, however, I know what I saw, and it is the truth.
