UK Triangular Craft Sighting

September 1998

Just wanted to let you know that I passed underneath a very large triangular shaped object with lights at each corner on the way down from Suffolk to Kent some time in the last two weeks of September 98. It was a either a Saturday or a Sunday as I was going to stay with a friend but I can't remember exactly which one it was.

I was driving down the motorway (had left Dartford Tunnel and was on my way to Maidstone). There was a particularly bright light ahead in the sky which stayed in exactly the same place instead of remaining far away. As I approached it I drove underneath it and was able to see intersections in the underside of it. There was no noise from screaming engines (nothing that I could hear anyway which I would have thought I would have if driving underneath a plane). It seemed to be hovering in the same place - as I said it just seemed to stay in the same place all the time I was watching it ahead of me as I drove down motorway).

It didn't particularly frighten me - there were no funny strobe lights or anything coming from it. I thought I had passed underneath a Stealth bomber or something. But I have never ever seen anything like it before. Extremely large - dark metal grey type colour - and just a light on each corner (white lights I think).

I mentioned it to my friend who was highly amused but during the few days I was staying there she woke me up to say she had also been watching something strange for a few hours from her bedroom window. Something with a lot of flashing lights - obviously not the same thing I had seen - rather like the helicopter in Men in Black. Apparently quite a few people saw that because they rang the local radio/tv station I believe, but I have never heard if anyone else saw the triangular shaped "plane" type thing that I saw.

If you have had any other reports of something similar in the area at the time I look forward to hearing from you.
