Middletown, Rhode Island Witness Describes UFO As A Pyramid

Date: Late 1970's (1978)
Time: 1:00 a.m.

Location of Sighting: West main road.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Pyramid.

Full Description of event/sighting: At the time of the sighting I was working overtime 2nd. shift. I started driving home about 1:00a.m. on a 4 lane 35mph posted highway. In the late 1970's this road would be empty at that time. I was alone on the highway when I saw a pyramid shaped object (I say pyramid because there was only three vertical lights, one on top and 2 on the bottom). The object was flying in a vertical orientation, not on a horizontal plane. It came over the trees on my left. When I saw it, I stopped my car because it was such a strange thing to see. The object flew over very slowly and silently in front and above my car and stopped. I'll guess maybe at 300 to 500 feet in the air. The object only stopped for a few seconds (as if checking me out) and then continued to move to my right over the trees on the other side of the highway.

I decided to follow it, the nearest road to my right was a very narrow, farmers dirt road. I got about half way down while watching the object, then I got scared because I wouldn't be able to get out of there in a hurry if I had to. So I turned the car around by backing up and going forward a number of times to get my car facing the right direction. Why I didn't just back the car out I don't know. The lights were different colors, the colors of which I don't now remember. I can't determine the size. It wasn't tiny, nor was it huge. If I had to guess, I would say from the bottom to the top of the pyramid, maybe 50 feet tall. It could of been 12 feet tall for all I know, but not over 50. Also, no structure was seen in between the 3 lights. I did tell a coworker who was a private pilot the next day of my sighting and described the 3 colors of the lights and he replied airplanes don't have those colors. One last thing, the 3 lights were solidly lit. There was no strobing or flashing or spinning.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
