Photo's of Triangular UFO exiting apple orchard

On Monday morning 08/12/02, 7:30 am, I notice a triangualar object hovering between apple trees on a hill that overlooks my backyard. The object then rose from the the ground level to over 80-90 yards up over the tree line. It did this in less that a second.

I then woke my son and pointed the object out. While he viewed this object I ran downstairs to get my digital olympus camera and then ran out into the middle of my back yard. The object had moved 200 yards east and at that time i manages to snap 6 pictures of an object that I cannot explain. There was no wind, there was no sound and it moved faster than any objest that I have seen. The shape was trinagualar and seemed to spin like a top. After exmining the pictures at 800X, we noticed a white field arounf the object that looked very interesting.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length with this witness, and found him to be quite convincing. We are awaiting copies of the photos, and will post them if they look interesting to us. PD))
