Posted: 12/2/2000
Location: Yamhill, PA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 Min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Large triangle shaped object flew over our homefor 2 min. and made my wife and I non-sceptics forever.

My wife was relaxing in her hot tub when into view from the south came a very low flying triangle shaped craft. She observed this object for approx. 30 sec. then came to the door to our deck to get me to come outside to see what was there. In the sky was a large triangle shape with lights at the apex of each point. It was flying at a very slow rate. Too slow it seemed to be staying aloft. There was a red bubble of light in the very center of the bottom, appox. 5 times the size of the other lights. When the object arrived overhead a bright yellow light started to blink at a slow rate on the side closest to us. The hills that line our valley are at the 500 foot level, we know this as we have measured them for grape vinyards. The object was at approx. 1000 ft. covered appox. 25 % of the avail. sky, no sound, no engine noise, no obvious exaust ports, no tail sections present when going away, after 2 min. blinked out.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and found his description of the sighting most convincing. Witness describes himself as a professional in the health care industry. PD))
