On April 17th, on the UMaine campus, we saw a triangle shaped craft with three orange lights and one white light, hover over buildings.Around 1:30am Friday morning, my friend and I left the UMaine campus to pick up friends from a bar. On our way home, around 2:45, we were driving on College Ave. My friend and I both made comments about how illuminated it was. As we were driving by a large field, we saw a heard of about 40 deer, the field was completely light it up, it was very strange. We did not think too much of it and continued to drive to Hilltop parking lot. The parking lot was full because of the time of night and it was hard to find a spot. We were driving up and down the lanes, suddenly facing the hilltop dorms. Hovering very closely over the buildings was a strange craft. We stared at it, and it began to move VERY slowly, without any sound. As it got closer we were able to get a better look, the aircraft was in the shape of a triangle, with orange lights at each point of the triangle and a white light in the middle, and from what we observed it was about twice the size of a car. We kept driving, staring at it. We couldn’t see it anymore as we were weaving up and down the lanes. Then as we turned again, we realized it was above our car, following us throughout the lot. We stopped the car, and the craft moved over the trees. Thinking it was gone we decided to move the car to a different area of the parking lot. As we began to move again, the craft started to come back towards the area we were in. Terrified, we jumped out of the car and ran to our building. We cannot explain what we saw. All we know is it was a triangle with orange lights, hovered closely over buildings, moved slowly, but precisely and was silent…Quite possibly the most terrifying experience of our lives.
