|Triangle craft low slow silent
Driving down Rt. 666 toward Rt.11, I witnessed a large triangular craft moving East from which I thought at first was a star in the sky near dawn due to its front lights being so stationary. As I drove closer I could identify more than just the one front light "landing light"? and thought at first it could be a helicopter. Once it was over head I could make out the shape of the object I immediately pulled off and killed the engine to step out and take a better look. Personally being a pilot for several years I judge the lights if normal sized to give me an estimate of having been roughly 1,000 - 1,500 feet above the ground. It had four white lights on the bottom in a square pattern with a reddish tented front light. It was completely silent and moved very very slowly, again I estimate the speed to have been in the proximity of 13 knots give or take a few. I am not suggesting it to be extraterrestrial, but in all my years of been involved with aviat! ion, I have never seen anything like it past the stealth bomber if I had to compare, and never completely silent or able to move so slowly it seemed to defy gravity. Amazing equipment no matter the origin!
