Carol Cloukey and Robert White. The glow had subsided, and in the evening twilight it appeared grayish in color, triangular shaped, and larger than a 747 aircraft. It had 4 red lights and 1 or 2 brighter white lights. It made no sound. The UFO now began to move away slightly, traveling in a northeasterly direction for a distance of a few hundred feet when it suddenly vanished right before their eyes. Robert later expressed wonderment that such a large object could suddenly disappear in such an inexplicable manner. They estimated that the total incident took about two minutes to transpire.

I saw a triangular shaped object in the sky. At first I figured it was a big plane, maybe a stealth bomber. As it came closer, I noticed this craft was huge. It covered up the moon, when it got directly overhead is when I freaked out. On each side of the bottom of the object where long bars of pulsing lights. In the middle of the back of the triangle were 2 strobes, one red and one blue, very bright.
The aircraft made a humming noise, not like an airplane but more like the sound of a computer humming.
Triangle-shape craft appearence:
Apex lights (circular shape) on each point.
Dark gray-black color.
