Description: Hello, I saw a large UFO Monday morning at 3:15 AM. It was on the northern horizon about 1/2 to 3/4 mile away and about 200 feet off the ground. I couldn't sleep so got up to make coffee. I looked out the window and saw it. I first thought it might be a helicopter, but it was too big and it had no flashing lights. It turned and I saw it's outline, it was wedge shaped and maybe 70 feet across +-. It had 7 lights along it's wing/shape. It was going east to west at about 50 MPH staying at 200-250 feet above ground. I ran upstairs so I could see it better but it angled northward and I could only see the lights as it got farther away. I am in the approach pattern for the Fresno CA Air terminal so know aircraft well. I was also in the US ARMY and this was an unknown craft. I called the Lemoore Naval Air Station and told their security person and he took the report. He told me it was below their radar. Plus they did not have any air craft flying then. He told me to call Fresno Tower and I did. They did not see anything on radar due to the low level. I might add that I opened the windows to hear for a sound of engines and it made no sound. I would have heard it because sound carries real well in my area of the country, between Reedley and Selma Calif. I am an 8th grade science teacher and it was definitely exciting to realize I actually saw an UFO. I know what I saw and was wide awake at the time.

Comments: Certainly the witness did much investigation on his own. It is interesting to note that the military and Fresno Control acknowledged that the craft was below their radar. I wonder what they would have said if the craft had been high enough to detect by radar? (Any guesses?) This is another of the "unknown" wedge shaped, triangular shaped, and boomerang shaped craft sightings that are flooding the UFO files.
