Report from the witness's father:
Small triangle craft with lights observed hovering above tree top outside of home.
"This was an account given to me this evening by my daughter as we were at a restaurant eating dinner. She has no interest in UFO's and is a typical 13 year old liking shopping and Hannah Montana. I am a pure skeptic myself but she rarely is untruthful and I can always tell. In my opinion she was not lying nor would she have a reason to be untruthful.
Here is what I can remember from our conversation. She was in bed last weekend which would be around the 20th of January I guess and it was around 11 PM at night. She heard a large gush of wind and looked out her bedroom window. She then witnessed a triangular shaped craft hovering just above a tree in the front of her house. She said it was "five feet" away but from her description it was more then likely about twenty feet away from her window. It apparently made no noise other then the initial gushing from its decent.
She drew a picture of it on her napkin and it is a standard triangle with little lights making the triangle form on the bottom and one larger light in the center of it.
I asked her why she did not go get her mom or grab her camera but she stated "I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It kind of made me stay there." Which I take is that it mesmerized her in some way.
As I said she knows nothing about UFO's but I have seen a few programs on the History channel discussing the triangle craft sightings so I got pretty interested as it was a near perfect description of the footage seen on those shows. I asked her how big it was and she tried describing the size. The best I can come up with is an estimate and it was not very big. Maybe twenty feet long and able to hold two people max.
I asked her what it was doing and she stated it was hovering over the tree top. She said she blinked her eyes and it was gone "disappeared." This event occurred in Graham WA in the area between Highway 7 and Meridian St which is still rural and heavily wooded. It is funny because just a few weeks ago, in our local paper, they had an article on Dennis Kucinich UFO sighting and they said it occurred at Shirley McClain's home in... Graham WA.
Again, I do not believe in aliens and personally I think this is the next "stealth" fighter of its age and will be unveiled soon. For decades people reported the Stealth as an alien spacecraft until it lost its top secret status. The same thing will happen for the triangle crafts and I cannot wait as this technology is astounding.
This account does not end here either and this is where I started to wonder if she was making this all up. She said she saw the craft again the next night! She had a sleep over at her friends (they live four miles away) so that would make the first account happening last Friday for the record. So on Saturday they get into her friends parents hot tub outside and she sees the craft again off in the distance about one hundred yards away. Her friends who thought she was crazy before saw it to and it simply descended from the top of the trees downward toward the ground and out of sight.
This account was given to me two hours ago by my daughter and is accurate. I believe she saw the craft both instances and that McChord airforce base, which is near by, is performing tests on the triangle aircraft in Graham, Washington as we speak.
If you need more info or need me to speak with her again for more detail let me know as this is all I have."
