Characteristics: There were lights on the object
saw a triangle shaped craft, drove under it, it imploded into orange ball of light and shot straight up.

Me and now ex-husband was driving towards St. Louis, Missouri, when we were on Hwy 24 heading towards Illinois, ahead above the road was something. It was triangle shaped with white and red lights, just sitting still not moving, no sound, no wind. The oddest thing I have ever seen. This was in 1990-91, can't remember the exact date. We slowly drove under it. After we passed by we were still watching it from the car when it seemed to implode into an orange ball and shot straight up, very fast.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that date is approximate. PD))

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this person, and she sounded quite sincere, and sober-minded, to us. PD))
