Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The craft was the same craft that appeared in the belgium sightings. The configuration of the lights were the same exactly. I had described the configuration of the lights I saw to some co-workers the next day. You can understand my absolute shock to see a picture of exactly what I saw on the internet. There were 3 very bright solid lights in a triangular pattern with a solid red light in the middle.
Size of Object(s)
Since it was at night the only measure of distance I have in the distance between the lights. The lights were probably 20 to 25 feet apart.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
At its closest the object was about 150 yards away and 100 yards off the ground.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Rural area. 20 miles from a nuclear power plant. no military bases or airports.
Full Description & Details
Approx. 8:45 PM central standard time I saw an object moving from east to west approx. 20 mph about 200 yards off of the ground. It was moving so slow that a conventional aircraft would have stalled out. I first observed the object from about one half of a mile away. It was about the size of a small cessna aircraft. As it flew it crossed the road I was travelling on. At it's closest it was aproxx. 150 yards away from my car. I observed the craft for about 1.5 minutes. It was approaching from an open field but once it crossed the road I immediately lost sight of it.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It was moving to slowly to be a conventional aircraft. This is because the stall speed would required to keep a conventional aircraft in the air is higher. This also could not have been a helicoptor. I fly on a variety of helicoptors to work. I also have a military background and have witnessed no craft like this before.
Technical school education. Military background. Fly on helicoptors regularly. Somewhat of an aviation buff. I am familiar with most makes of airplanes and ultralights.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have seen some programs on television about them.
No sightings before. I have never seen anything like this in my life.
