Description: For the last couple of days we have been hearing about UFO activity at work. Because I had never before seen one I was a bit skeptical that I ever would. (This was true until tonight.) I work at C&H sugar on the Carquinez Straight in northern California. Tonight was a warm night with the Moon rising out of the east-southeast just cresting the foothills in the town of Crockett where I live and work. A few coworkers and I were observing lights moving in the distance when we see a light moving slowly in the high atmosphere directly due south of us. As the light headed in our direction it began to speed up. Most of us felt it was a satellite. Once it had gotten directly over head I lost it in the stars. I asked my friend where it went while looking straight up. All of a sudden he says what is that? We look west-southwest from straight up and see this object in the sky. I say, it looks like a hawk hovering in the warm night air. As I say that it is approaching us at an average speed of say a light aircraft. This thing was awesome. I have only seen this thing described on TV and here it is: My guess it that it was flying between 1000-5000 feet. It was a black triangle, with a longer nose than width. It had three perfect round pads on the bottom. They were quite big. One was up front and two on the left and right rear. The pads glowed in a sort of tan color. The pads were quite interesting. The pads pulsated, but not the whole pad. It would pulsate in random areas as if it were being affected by air quality or something to that effect. When it flew right over us, it had no other lights just the three pads. The thing made no noise whatsoever. Now here is the kicker: As it flew to our left heading east just before it reached the moon light it cloaked it's self from nose to tail and vanished right before our eyes.

A side note: from what I have been told talking to a guy who watches the sky here. He likes UFOs. He says that particular aircraft has a bit of a routine. He says tonight it flys from east to west and tomorrow it flys from south to north. Then the day after tomorrow it will fly from east to west again and so on. Well thank you it was quite an experience. Tomorrow we are going to try and get a picture.

Comments: The witness has described the frequently reported black triangle. However, the tan pads observed on the craft are unusual. I have never received a black triangle report where the object had tan pads.
