Full Description of event/sighting: This sighting took place one relatively clear summer afternoon. At the time I was at my ex girlfriends parents home. We were standing out in the yard just talking or what not, can't remember exactly what we were doing. But all of a sudden it got dark, like a big rain cloud just arrived overhead. I looked up and directly overhead was the largest air craft I had ever seen. Can't really guess how big it was, but it certainly was as big as the biggest jet made or even larger I want to say. It was triangular in shape, and black. I could not see any markings or windows. It was very low to the ground. It was not silent, but as if it were coasting with engines off. There was just a whirring sound. I couldn't believe anything this big could stay in the air at such a slow speed. I assumed it was a stealth jet. One of those secret ones they don't want us to know too much about.

My first impression was that it was in trouble and was looking for a place to land. This is a mountainous area and by the direction it was headed I thought it might be headed for a farmers field that was about three miles away. I didn't want to miss this, so a few of us hopped in the car and raced towards the field in hopes to see the craft land. We did not see the craft in route nor was there anything at the field when we got there. We got out of the car to listen for anything. There was nothing. That was the end of it.

I'm sure this was just some sort of military maneuver, but I'll never know. I didn't call to report it. I wished I would have if only to know if anything was supposed to be in the area.

I say this took place in 1988, but it may have been 1987 or 1989. The timing is a bit foggy. There had to have been others that saw this that day. I'd be curious to know if any did.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
