Shape: Triangle - Duration: 15 minutes
I was walking my dog around 8:00 p.m. on 1/13/13. There is a wide view of a long distance mountain range & the southern sky from my front yard where I was standing.
Looking at the mountains I saw an extremely bright, white light moving slowly toward me. It was moving from south to north slightly west of my position. My first thought was that the light was much brighter than any plane or helicopter Iíd ever seen.
It seemed to be illuminating the clouds in front of it the length of 2 airplanes. I watched the light for about 10 minutes thinking it must be a military plane.
It came out of the clouds & flew low, lower than any large planes would fly in this valley. It moved very slowly & smoothly, sort of floating along.
I kept waiting to hear the engine, but it didnít make a sound. I knew it wasnít any military craft.
As it got closer I realized how low it was, it was just above the tree tops of the 100/120 foot pines on the west side of my yard. Then it went behind the trees.
Again I wondered why I couldnít hear an engine or something.
When it came out from behind the trees I could see the bottom of it. It was a black (matt finish) triangle-shaped craft with a white light on each of the rounded tips & a dimmer white/orange light in the center of the belly.
I watched the underside pass by me while looking west through a 25Ė30 foot opening in the trees. I couldnít see the entire craft at one time; it was much larger than that 30 foot opening.
I continued to watch even after I couldnít see it anymore thinking it was going to run into the mountain north of me. When I didnít see an explosion I went inside & told my husband about it & drew a picture.
I thought it was odd that it was moving so slowly & I thought it was odd that the light was so bright, but the thought of it being a UFO didnít occur to me until I realized it wasnít making any noise & it was very low.
Then when I saw the matt black metal underside I was convinced.
I havenít told anyone besides my husband for fear of ridicule. Since that night I research UFO sightings on the Web every chance I get. I was surprised no one reported it, but as time passed I thought if there were other witnesses maybe they were just as afraid to speak up as I was. So I decided to file this report.
Iím still in shock & try not to let it consume my thoughts, but Iím sure what I saw was not of this world.
