This is one of five sightings that i have seen in my lifetime. At the time this occured, i was self employed. I ran a service company that cleaned commercial heating and air conditioning systems. This sighting happened just outside of Altivista va. on state rd. 29 heading north. Myself and one employee were traveling home after work this particular night at about 11:00pm when i noticed a very bright light up ahead just above the highway. At first when i mentioned this to my work partner, he laughed and did not pay much attention to this object, but i was watching closely. As i began to get closer to this object i realized that it was no air craft. This object was a large black colored trangle with three huge barrels under the bottom that emitted light from each of them. The light glowed brightly and then it faded out to a dull glow under each barrel, and it did this several times as we were still approaching the object.By this time we were almost directly under the object in my work van. I pulled over to the side of the road so we could continue to observe this object. My work partner was at this point, very afraid of what he was seeing and i admitt i was not feeling comfortable with this sighting because it was so close to us and we were the only ones on the highway during this sighting. This object was totally silent as it hovered above us. This object was just above tree top level which was about sixty feet up.As we were sitting there on the side of the road looking up at the object it began to slowly move to the right side a little further closer to the trees and then we noticed that the object was gone, but we did not see it vanish or move one direction or the other at that point. Strangely enough, we both had a feeling of missing time or something i just have no way of explaining, but thats how it was. My work partner, who is now a long time friend as well, was a serious skeptic about such things as u.f.o.s until this experience. I had told him about the disc i saw back in 1996 over the s! ears bui lding, but he never believed me until this experience happened to him. To this day i still get a laugh out of what he siad while we were driving home that night after we saw the object. He said to me (i'm glad it diddn't suck us up in there!).
