Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Object was triangular - very large with a span covering most of the width of my driveway which is a very wide and a long driveway -from my driveway there is a grassy area with trees between my house and my neighbor's driveway and floated over my driveway and some of my neighbor's driveway. To this day I have never told my next door neighbors. The color was black, but not super dark black over me it seemed like black but with a hint of grey. On the front of this "aircraft" it had a long "needle with a cylinder toward the vehicle - the cylinder showed a hint of red it wasn't a light just a rounded cylinder shape with a hint of red but very faint. The side that faced me (lef t side of the aircraft) had a impression of like scalloped areas like columns with rounded top - I don't know if this describes it right I can draw it for you no problem I just can't describe it properly with words. The back end of the ship had 3 white lights but those lights didn't show like car beams lights they were just white with no beams. Absolutely no sound at all - if I didn't look up I wouldn't have seen it. It was about 50 - 100 ft over the house no higher than that.

Full Description & Details
Evening - went outside to make sure cars were locked in driveway - always look up at sky love astronomy -turned around facing north - over trees in back of our house saw huge dark image just over treetops - no sound just drifting low - thought plane was coming down - possibly crashing - but then realized that's not what was happening - when over me-looked triangular dark v-shaped- huge over my house and neighbor next door - unbelievable that it was so low - 3 white lights in back - front point like needle with cylinder looked red like painted that color not a light on front of "ship" maybe 100 ft up over the house watched it move ever so slowly no sound watched it go slowly toward the south-full moon - "ship" started going higher and eventually went to the left of the full moon (no clouds that night) and then just took off like a shot and was gone. Went in house told husband and son and drew a picture of the aircraft I saw. Amazing - I didn't go in to get my family because I was afraid that it would be gone by the time I got them out to see it. I never expected to see anything like that and ever since I am totally interested in finnding out any information of hearing about incidents such as mine. I never expected to ever experience what I did that night. I don't know if it was some government aircraft or something "alien". I feel fortunate to have seen what I did - in fact I can still see it clearly in my mind's eye. At that time I only told my husband and my son - they thought I was joking until I drew the picture for them. I had kept this quiet for years and didn't report this to anyone until I saw UFO Hunters several years later and emailed that group of fellows - they were interested but after several emails back and forth - the last email from the UFO Hunters said they couldn't communicate over the email as they detected a virus on my computer. so I never contacted them again. I just happened to come across as I am sitting here listening to Coast to Coast (which I never knew about before until a person told me about this program years later). I really wish I could have found out whether what I saw was our aircraft or "alien". Like I said - I was afraid to share this information for quite awhile - because I didn't want anybody to think I was "crazy". But now years later I have discovered that many people throughout the world have reported similar happenings. But most reports say people have seen v shaped or other shaped "aircraft" very high in the sky but my experience was that the "aircraft" floated just over the treetops and very low just above the roof - I couldn't believe what I was seeing and so low and no noise.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It was so low over my house no stars planets etc. it was so low there was no mistaking what I saw it was so clear!!!!!! Man-made of alien made ??

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before the sighting I thought talk of UFO weren't that interesting I was into astronomy as a hobby, but after this sighting it could have been governmental, but I now am leaning toward alien craft as since God made everything why waste the whole universe on just us. I am so interested in finding out the truth and am happy to hear more and more people have had experiences of visually seeing things in the sky but I feel fortunate that I saw this "aircraft" just over my house it was sooooooooooo very close and spectacular.
I wish I pursued my interest in astronomy when I was young - but in my day girls didn't get involved in things like that - if I had to do it all over again I would have become a scientist. I consider myself fortunate that I saw what I did. But I would love to know if it was "ours" or from "somewhere else". I hope one day I will know - governmentsiaround the world are so secretive
