Full Description & Details

Early Autumn? 1990 or 1991. I was with two other guys hiking in the woods near my home one night. We were on our way back home on a pitch-black gravel road/driveway. Skies were clear. Stars galore. We all heard a powerful low humming sound approching. Although it was very quiet for a machine of it's size, we looked ahead, and slightly to the right of us and froze in our tracks as it passed almost directly over us. We were standing in a area between a tree-line and a elevated corn field. Nobody normally been were we were at the time this happened (mostly farmers), but I was a town kid that moved to an old farm-house in the sticks. I liked to sneak out and stay up late. I "was" a teen-ager. What I saw was a very large, black, triangular craft travelling slowly, approx. 35-45 mph. It had three bright white spot lights that remained stationary. I also remember a small red flashing light on the right-hand corner. We watched the craft travel over the woods we had just exited until it was just about out of sight, but could still see the glow of the lights through the trees. We looked at each other, picked up our jaws, I asked if we should go back (toward the woods), somebody said "fuck that" and we all bolted as fast as we could for about 100 yards the opposite direction down the road and stopped running when we were out of breath and realized we were'nt in any immediate danger. We continued home, speed-walking. The few people I did tell afterward seemed to just laugh, but not hard, They would just look at me goofy, like they did'nt know if I was joking nuts or a liar. So I just kind of forgot about it I guess until about 3 years ago when I was watching television and saw a program on UFO sightings on the History or Discovery channel and saw a drawing similar to the craft I had seen that night. I'm not a U.F.O. or alien freak. I am not a christian. All I know is seeing is believing, unless it's fake. I can only believe the sightings which resemble my own, since that is all I know to be truth. I do consider myself fortunate to be able to see such an awesome piece of machinery.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

It looked as if it "could" be man-made, but I don't think the "man" could keep technology like this classified for so long?

Witness Background

Honest, smarter than I look, hard working Dad. Tech School educated.,Pretty much always worked on or around machinery, currently a machinist/welder.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I only am interested in "UFOs" of similar discription, at least until I see a different looking one.
