In December of 2008, I was outside on a clear, cold night smoking a cigarette, staring at Orion, trying to pick out some of the dimmer stars.
Movement actually made me duck, as I saw a triangle craft, no lights, no sound, with a shimmering type bottom that blended with the background night
sky. Uncertain of its size, but larger than what you describe. Very low altitude. Not even a whisper of sound, and had I not been staring at Orion,
and had this craft not crossed directly in my line of sight, I would never have detected it.
Heading from due east of me on a track going due west, which would take it right over the runway at Hurlburt Field, just a few miles from here. Eglin
is a few miles north of me.
Wouldn't surprise me at all what you saw, and I remember thinking, "I hope that's one of ours."
That blending with the night sky is what I keep coming back to. The triangel part was clearly discernible, but the bottom of the craft was almost
perfectly blending with the night sky background.
Where exactly did you see these?
