Description (In Witness's Own Words): Before going to bed (06/26/2007), I stepped out to smoke a cigarette around 2 am. It was a beautiful, clear warm night. The stars were out in full effect and I was looking up to gaze a bit when I caught glimpse of what I immediately thought to be a UFO flying north directly over my house (1 block east of Lake City Way). Its very difficult for me to describe its size because there was nothing for me to compare it to in the air. It was about the size of my hand, held up in the air, at arm's length. I believe it was from 1000-2000 feet away from me, moving slow enough for me to watch it for 15-20 seconds. It had three circular lights underneath it with smaller lights around the 3 big ones. The lights where a dim yellow / white hue, they weren't shining down, they were just merely on. There was nothing at all blocking my view from it, but after 15-20 seconds it simply vanished. It didn't vanish into the horizon, or disappear behind a cloud, nor did it do any cool star wars tricks. It just faded away in front of my eyes. I should also note that there was no cars on the road near me, no airplanes or helicopters above me and this thing made ZERO sound whatsoever. It should have been loud as heck given the distance that it was from me, so it was very confusing to my senses. I stood outside for another 20 minutes trying to see if it would come again, and in that course of time I saw 2 shooting stars and a satellite way above earth, so I am 100% positive it was neither of those things. I have always semi-believed in alien life forms, but maybe its the kind of thing you will never fully believe until you see it with your own eyes. I know what I saw. The moment I saw it I knew I was looking at a UFO.

Investigator's Notes: The witness has provided a very explicit report and nice drawing. The object was quite large given that it was the size of his hand held at arm's length. He stated in a subsequent report that the lights were about the size of his thumb held at arm's length. The vanishing of the craft is also interesting. There is a possibility that the craft could have went behind one of the high clouds noted in the weather observation, but the witness should have seen the craft reappear given that the sky was only about 1/8 covered with high clouds. The witness's report is somewhat similar to the many sightings that we have received of "flying triangles." (He thought that the shape of the craft was circular, but indicated that the large lights to be in a triangular configuration.) These triangular shaped craft are generally silent (some exhibit low hum), move slow and have a least three lights in a triangular formation. The identity of these triangular craft is not known, but some feel that the craft are the top U.S. military secret TR3B flying triangle. This fact is open to speculation. One wonders why the U.S. military would test these craft over populated areas?
