|Black Triangle Craft Spotted
About 5 years ago on a very cold moonless winter morning at approximately 3:00 a.m. my car pool buddy and I were on the way to work at a “remote location”. We were on Mercury Blvd. on the East side of the EAFB dry lake bed. Think Space Shuttle landing strip runway that runs West to East in front of the notorious “South Base” Birk Flight Test Center. We noticed a very large black triangle shaped craft coming off the runway and slowly gaining altitude. We pulled over in time to have it come directly over our heads. It appeared to be quite “thick” almost as though it were a balloon with somewhat puffy panels on its sides. Underneath were very bright lights that reminded me of recessed counter top lighting. Once it passed us it gained altitude VERY RAPIDLY and it blended in with stars above and was no longer visible. It was way cool indeed. We were speechless for a bit and felt very lucky to have seen it. Our thoughts were that the lights somehow adjusted to the star patterns above and also adjusted for altitude for viewing angles. It was completely silent. Obviously we assumed this was a re-con craft because we watched it carefully and lost it not to be found again. We are talking seconds here. It was definitely not an alien craft. After asking around Northrup came up more than once. Who knows? Due to my clearance level, please no contact and if you delete this immediately it would be appreciated.
