Enormous black triangle, southeast of Pittsburgh, 1987/88.

Hello. I have shared this story with a very few individuals, close friends who can be trusted. I have also, more recently, shared it online, in emails to a few individuals, in hopes of getting some kind of (hopefully positive) feedback, possibly opening a dialogue with someone who has had a similar experience, but as yet to date, feedback has been minimal, and no dialogue. I am certain there are others who have had similar experiences, but don’t know how to go about finding them. At any rate, here goes:

Back in about 1987 or 1988, I was staying at a friend’s house. I was doing some work on their farm, southeast of Pittsburgh, PA. I was sleeping on the couch, when I had a "dream" that was not a dream. Let me elaborate: I was startled awake somehow, and had the instantaneous impulse to get up and run outside, onto the porch. When I did, I saw an enormous black triangle hovering above, and slightly to the right (South) of the house. There were no discernible lights, as I recall, but there seemed to be dome-like shapes along the bottom of the thing. (craft? Ship?) I don’t know how long I stared at it, but I became aware that it appeared to be sucking up trees from the ground and levitating them up into it somehow. I started crying.

Suddenly there was a blonde female there with me, about 5’ 4" tall, straight blonde hair, like in the "Swedish Bikini Team" commercials, dressed in either black or dark blue close fitting flight suit type uniform. I don’t recall any kind of emblems or markings on the uniform. { I will note here that at that time I had not heard of the Billy Meier case. I have only learned of it recently.} I did not, far as I remember, actually see her descend from the vehicle, she was just kind of suddenly there on the porch with me.

I immediately felt reassurance, and an overwhelming sense of peace and calm. She told me that everything would be alright, that they were going to put the trees back when they were done, that everything would be as it had been before, and that there would be no sign that anything had happened. I looked into her eyes, (deep blue or maybe green, like a lake) and I instantly felt as though we had known each other for a very long time, maybe forever. I knew her name then, though I don’t know it now. She put her hand on my shoulder, and, "Bam." I was waking up on the couch again, startled.

I got up and ran outside, fully expecting to see a black triangle, but there was nothing in the sky except stars. I stood there dumbfounded, thinking it must’ve been a dream, but it was no dream. I know it wasn’t.

I don’t know if she wiped my memory, and maybe it didn’t fully erase, (?) or if maybe I was allowed to remember only certain parts of the experience, or if I was supposed to believe that it was “just a dream." I really wish that she would return again, the connection I felt was so profoundly deep.

I will add that the area where the farm was is not far from a high-security government installation, the US Bureau Of Mines, which I don’t believe for a minute is actually a coal mine. They have 12’, double-row, barbed wire fences surrounding the place, which were in place as long ago as the early 1980s, long before the heightened state of security in the post 9/11 era. I had a friend who used to work there as a janitor. A few of us decided to go and see him one day, there was a sliding gate which was open, and on a whim we just decided to drive in and see if we could find him. Within about a minute, we were being closely followed by a dark blue Chevy Caprice Classic. We kept on driving. Then a white Chevy Caprice Classic pulled out in front of us, cutting us off. Three men wearing black suits, black ties, and black sunglasses approached the car, and demanded identification. One of them said, “State your business here.” We told them we were looking for our friend.! He said, “This is a restricted area. You have no business here. Turn your vehicle around and leave immediately.” Needless to say, we were scared shitless. We were teenagers out for a ride on an otherwise uneventful day. We turned around, with the blue car now in front of us, and the white car following us closely. They followed us like that after we got back on the main road, for about a mile or so. It was very weird. Were they the infamous “men in black?” And, if so, why were they there? Why would they need such a high level of security at a “coal mine” anyway? I knew from then on that there was something not right about that place, it gave me the creeps, and I always tried to avoid it if possible.

This incident took place earlier than the other one, approximately 1985 or so. There have been other strange occurrences throughout my life, but these two stand out in my memory.

My ex wife, some friends, and I were laying on a trampoline in a yard, stargazing. We all remarked about this bright red dot, wondering if it was Mars, or what, when all of a sudden, it just shot off to the north northeast, zip! We all said “Whoa, what the hell was that?!” This was just after the time of the Hale-Bopp Comet.

I have more, but I will wait for a reply on this first. Namaste.

My ethnicity is Native American/Celtic/Anglo-Saxon.

My religion is Pagan, though I was raised Methodist.

I am currently in my mid forties, at the time of the first incident listed, I was in my twenties, at the time of the second incident I was a teenager, at the time of the third incident I was around thirty.

The memory of the first incident, though incomplete, is extremely vivid.

I have strange, "Post Apocalyptic" dreams sometimes.

I have a strong fear of "Greys", the pictures people draw give me the willies, yet I have no memory of ever seeing one up close.

I don't know if I believe Billy Meier or not.

I don't know if I really believe everything that Bill Cooper wrote in "Pale Horse," but a lot of it makes sense. I know the US government lies. They cannot be trusted.

I know that something is going to happen on 21, December of this year, 2012, I just don’t know exactly what.
