Friday evening, January 24, 2003, I was driving north
on Hwy. #15 near Kingston Mills Road. It was a cold still
night, and I was singing along to a cassette of the "Mamas
and the Papas" on my car stereo. I just passed over
"Stephentown Creek Road," when something in
the sky caught my eye. Ahead of me and to the right, just
above the tree line, I saw two round white lights. They
were much bigger than any stars and they appeared to be
coming towards me in a south-west direction. I checked
my car mirrors to see if any other vehicles were on the
highway. There weren't any, and I immediately slowed my
car down to about 10-15 km/hr. As the two lights approached,
it looked like big bus headlights in the sky. I thought
to myself, "What kind of a plane or helicopter has
two white lights like that?" I'm not too knowledgeable
about aircraft, but I'd never heard of anything with two
big white lights. Then I noticed that there was a smaller
red light blinking between the two white lights. It started
on the inside of the left light and "blinked"
its way to the right light, and continued this pattern
back and forth. At closer look, I realized that there
was also one small red light that stayed consistently
lit next to the right white light."
object was flying slowly and just over the treeline (approximately
2-3 telephone poles high). I quickly checked for traffic
again, and then flicked on the high beams of my car, because
I thought it might help me get a better look at this thing.
I didn't stop the car, but I was driving so slowly, I
was barely moving. I couldn't believe my eyes; it was
a black equilateral triangle right ahead of me, above
the road. The triangle was exactly even and equal in length
on all three sides and each of the three angles. There
was a large white dome light steadily 'glowing' at each
of the three points. Each of these round dome lights were
about the size of a half-volleyball. None of the lights
were actually shining a beam of light on anything, or
even casting a radiant light, for that matter. I could
no longer see the red blinking lights at all, and I wasn't
sure if these glowing dome-lights were the same lights
as the headlights or not."
quickly put my window down and stuck my head out. As it
passed over my car, I got a very good look at the bottom
of the craft. It was flying point-first towards the Kingston
Mills Locks area. The black triangle was actually very
dark grey and almost shadow-like above a very distinct
3-Dimensional black shape directly attached to and under
the triangle. It looked like something out of a Star Trek
movie! It actually had arrow-like points at each of the
three corners. After the point, the shape made something
like a small inward rectangle, then outward to a larger
rectangle shape, back to a small inward rectangle, and
then to the next point. Each side was exactly symmetrical
to itself and to each other side. It struck me how slowly
it was moving (maybe 40 km/hr), how low it was, and how
small it was... it would easily fit in a school gymnasium."
next thing that crossed my mind was that perhaps it was
some sort of military stealth-like plane. I thought whoever
that is, is so close they can probably hear "Dream
a little Dream" playing on my stereo. I considered
turning the radio off, but I didn't bother. Maybe it would
draw their attention to me; then another thought crossed
my mind; would that be a good thing or a bad thing? What
about a real UFO; and possible abduction? I didn't feel
scared, though, especially since none of those "stereotypical"
things happened to my car. No stalling, or dimming of
lights, or weird radio noise. I noticed two sets of car
headlights coming towards me from around the next corner
of the highway. I thought, "Good, those people have
got to be able to see this thing too!" I felt better
that I probably wasn't alone in the "sighting"
and I just continued around the corner. The strange craft
never stopped or hovered, just continued slowly on its
course towards the area of Kingston Mills Locks. I did
not see the craft from behind. I looked at the clock in
my car, and it read 6:21. Since my clock is set exactly
8 minutes fast, it would actually have been 6:13 pm. I
noticed the next street sign that read "Isle of Man
Road". The whole incident probably lasted less than
was very excited about what I had seen, so I explained
it and sketched it out for friends immediately. They asked
me what it sounded like. Sound had never crossed my mind.
I told them that I did have my stereo on, but I didn't
notice any sound at all coming from the aircraft. I also
made note that I hadn't noticed any sort of big wind or
anything like that. It was certainly a bizarre experience,
and I will certainly never forget it."

after sighting) and the diagrams were computer-drawn on
Tuesday, January 28th, 2003 from memory and from the sketches
I made immediately after sighting."
note that drawings are approximate renditions only. Stars
in sky are not accurate, just representation of stars.
The third diagram is a drawing of the craft from directly
underneath. (I am aware that the perspective of this drawing
is a little off.) The pattern of the black underneath
of the craft is as similar as I could make it, but I'm
sure it is definitely not exact."
Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and found
her to be an exceptional witness. Her recollection of
the event seemed quite precise, and she was quite eloquent
in describing it. She sounded sincere, and quite credible.
She prefers no additional publicity about the event, beyond
her written report here. PD))
