Feb 16th of this year, I was driving back from Albertsons,
driving east from 100th on 132nd. As I approached the
beginning of the hill which peaks at a traffic light just
ahead of 109th ave NE, I saw a GIGANTIC jet black triangle,
with lights, come very slowly towards me (it was heading
west) over the trees just to the north of Jaunita High
School. Traffic was non-existent and it was about 11 PM
on a Sunday night. Upon seeing this thing, I pulled my
truck over to the side of the road approximately ¼
mile west of the entrance to the high school. It appeared
to be no higher than perhaps 75 to 100 feet, and it was
watched it slowly move from the tree tops I mentioned,
towards me for what I'm guessing was a good 30 seconds.
The distance it would have covered in that time was less
than 1,000 feet. I rolled down my right passenger window.
There was no sound at all. Then, it STOPPED and just "hung"
there. There was a slightly yellowish white "spot-light"
at the very tip, and this was moving around, up and down
and side to side. Then ALL the lights on the crafted shut
off for perhaps 4 seconds. When the lights came back on,
it was moving again and it moved past me, then behind
me, and out of my sight.
told my wife about it. I don't think she really believed
me. I brought it up again with her several times over
the next week. I went to my computer 4 days after seeing
it, and did the attached rendering in photoshop to show
her exactly what I saw as best I could remember. My wife
did a search on the internet, several days later, and
said that someone else from here had also seen it and
described exactly what I had described. I wasn't around
when she did this, so I have not read the account; she
didn't bookmark it (she said it was on a message board)
and I have been searching for it online.
have not used my real name or address on this email account,
I really don't want to be ridiculed about this or have
any publicity. I've told you pretty much everything I
can think of here, but I really like to hear back from
someone to see if you know who else saw this thing."
