Large triangular craft seen hovering over power linesIt was around midnight on April, 20th, 2009. I was driving down the highway to bring a friend home when we both noticed a bright light about a mile or so up ahead, low to the ground. As we continued to towards it, the light became brighter and still remained low to the ground. My initial reaction was that it was a spotlight or a low helicopter or something. As we drove up on the object, which was about 50 yards off to the side of the highway in a field with high power lines, we both stared in awe as we noticed a giant triangular shaped craft hovering above these power lines. I was driving and my friend was in the passenger's seat, so he had a better view than I did. I kept looking over at it every second or so and what I saw was a triangular shaped craft about 60-80 feet long on the longest parts and three bright yellowish/orange lights shining from each corner. We took a right turn at the next light about 100 yards up the road and pulled right into a parkin! g lot next to this field. We got out of the vehicle and stared in awe at this giant craft, not making a single sound, just hovering above the power lines. As we stared at this craft, my friend gets in the car and pulls his camera out. About this time the craft starts to slowly ascend into the air. As he takes out his camera to take a picture, the camera reads, "Memory Card Full". He had just taken a pictures a few hours earlier of the night and had not filled up his card yet. I found this to be very unusual. As the crafted started to ascend, it rose in somewhat of a rocking motion, then in an instant, it pretty much disappeared from sight.
