Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bizarre magnet-like Triangular-shaped craft floating effortlessly in the evening sky of Southeast Michigan(maybe a blimp)!!!

I have visited this web site (very cool site, I must add) a number of times since March 2000 wondering if anyone else saw the object I did 3/22/00. It doesn't look as if readers can make contact with other visitors to the site, which is fine, but maybe someone else will chime in or offer an explanation. Reading the many accounts on this site over time, I'm shocked by how many people have witnessed the black triangular craft that I did, and so many stories match one another - obviously the government has a new technology that they somehow are keeping secret. Where is it during all the recent crisis, I don't know, but it sure would be handy. This is all very surreal to me. It was around sundown (7pm) on Wednesday March 22 in St. Clair Shores, MI near Metropolitan Beach for anyone who is familiar with the area. I was pulled up to a garbage can near the park entrance dumping some cups and junk from my backseat to neaten up my car. While in my cars backseat, out of the corner of my eye I see what apears to be a blimp floating over a trees that surround the park. I really thought it was a blimp of some kind - it was probably 300 yards away at this time, and looked about the size of a semi truck trailer. I got out of my car to get a better look. This thing was obviously metal. No blimp. It floated like a hockey puck on ice, gliding along the skyline. Most eerily, IT WAS COMPLETELY SILENT!!! It seemed to defy physics; it looked heavy (bowling ball like), but made no noise or showed no fire or jet propulsion. I could only compare it to when you see a helium balloon that has been accidentally let go and it it seen floating thru the sky, but huge and and shaped sort of like the Pontiac car emblem. It moved laterally toward where I was so it did get closer, but still far enough to where I wasn't too concerned. I remember like it was just yesterday that you could clearly see a lone green light on the underside of this like a traffic stoplight, and this light had a cup like metal cag! ing arou nd it, very similar to that which you would see in a gymnasium basketball court around a bulb or on a factory to protect a bulb, but allow for light to shine. The light slowly and evenly got brighter then dim over and over, pulsing, if not like breathing. The thing also had white lights at each corner, but not at the tips. The lights were in about 2 feet from the corner, but they were dimly lit. I wanted to shout to someone, anyone and say, "look at this thing, what is that, what the heck." I wanted someone else to see it too. It was incredible! I didnt have a cellphone back then so I couldn't call the police, but I wanted to. I thought I could ask them what it was. I could kill myself for not having a camera. The craft, which was creeping slowly in an eastern direction toward the beach then suddenly stopped, then shot sideways out of site behind trees and the horizon. It still gives me chills typing about it now. Part of me knows I will probably know what I saw one day soon, via CNN or FOX talking about the latest spyplane, but there's still another part of me that's wondering if this was something other worldly. I jumped in my car and shut the door - I was weirded out! When I got home, I watched the news, expecting to hear something about it. Nothing. I told two friends and my mom about it and they laughed at me and said it was a blimp. No blimp zips like that!!! Plus this thing looked like a gun. It just looked like hard black metal - I would compare it to a big magnet. I never thought of it that way before now, but that's it! One friend mentioned that Selfridge Airforce Base is very close to the Metropolitan beach (and after looking at a map, I confirmed that it is) so maybe it was something from there. I even placed a non-emergency call to the St Clair Shores Police Dept to ask if they had any calls or knew what it was...they said that air force cargo planes often make flight paths over th area, as do the Air Force Blue Angels which often are part of airshows in the area. Fri! ends, th is was not a known air force jet. I don't believe it was a UFO because of the lights - much like you're used to seeing on a terrestrial plane to have placed underneath, and why would a UFO need lights anyway!!?? I imagine that soon this craft will be made public and become as everyday and "Hollywood" as the Stealth bomber has become, but for now, I feel priveleged to have seen one. This site is littered with stories of craft identical to what I saw, so something new is out there. Print this if you like, I just want to get it off my chest...I have revisited the location twice, but nothing. I will forevermore carry a camera in my car!!!!!!
