|Triangle Craft Spotted in early hours moving silently above treetops.
I have not spoken to many people about this sighting.
I am a commercial rated pilot.
Short and sweet, I saw a very dark triangle in the Merriam Park area of St, Paul, MN, around August of 2003. I was picking up my girlfriend to give her a ride to work at about 5 am in a very populated area when I spotted a black triangle in the sky at approx. 500-1000 ft above ground level. It moved from east to west.
I immediately identified it as a ufo because it had only 3 lights, one at each corner of it's triangle shape. All three lights were white. The lights were not bright and were pointed down.
I opened my window and heard no noise, just silence. I tried to follow it, but could not keep up in the city block grid system. I estimate that it was moving at about 30mph.
I have heard that there has been ongoing activity in this area of the Twin Cities for some years. Some claim that the river is an attractive spot to these craft. The nearest airport would depart aircraft in nowhere near this direction and the departing airplanes would have certainly gained thousands of feet of elevation at this distance.
