Columbus, Ohio - c.1985

My former fiance and I were leaving our home on his motorcycle and headed West toward I-71. As soon as we turned onto the main road, we noticed three painfully bright lights in the distance in a triangular formation.

It was hovering not that far above the ground. At first we thought that they were attached to a crane, but as we drove closer we realized that they were a bit too high up for that.

My ex was in the Air Force and knew his aircraft, but he kept saying "What the hell is that?"

As we came closer to it we could see the huge silhouette behind the lights. It was about the size of a football field, like a huge rectangular slab lying horizontally a few hundred feet above the parking lot of an abandoned Rinks department store.

As we drove past it we could see smaller colored lights on the bottom of it. It had various geometric shapes in relief all over the exterior and was gun-metal gray.

It was perfectly silent. When we drove to the "back" of the craft we noticed maybe 4-5 huge rectangular "windows" that were angled slightly down and were lit from within.

It seemed like there were figures moving behind the windows. I was very scared and begged him to drive away, but he wanted to drive toward it. As we argued, a group of African American teens (5-7 ages 13-17) ran across the road right in front of us and we slammed on our brakes.

The teens were looking at the craft. They ran onto the parking lot and were nearly under it when it shot straight up into the sky and disappeared without a sound. If any of those formally young men are reading this, I hope that they will post what they saw.
