“I saw a very large black triangle craft in January of 2000 while hunting for wild pigs on a family farm in southern Illinois. I was there with my brother in law and father in law and the farm was his uncles. The hogs had destroyed crops each year and it was ruining their income. To get as many of them as possible we set up tree stands and corn bait to kill as many as possible. It’s legal in every state to do that. At around 4 am or 4:30 I observed a huge dark object coming south southwest and it was blocking out most of the sky and stars. I never heard any sound. It came almost directly over me at about 500 to 1000 feet and had to be at least large enough to sit a pro football stadium on top without seeing it. It went passed me and stopped directly over where my wife’s brother was. It didn’t move for at least a couple minutes. I was talking to him on a hand held radio and he was in complete panic. I was too but I was also intrigued by it. This was not man made. I know that because it continued Southwest and started doing this step up maneuvering then shot off at a speed I can’t estimate. As we went to check on my father in law I saw it moving across the sky at what had to be several thousand miles per hour. Then shot up into space and disappeared. My father in law couldn’t even speak. We tried to get what he saw and he was in shock. When the object was sitting still earlier I had looked at it through my rifle scope and it had a strange texture to the outside shell. The only source of light coming from it was at the rear and it was an odd glow. I served in the Marines in the Air Wing and my father in law was a WWII Army Air Corps veteran. We weren’t familiar with anything remotely close to that craft. When he finally calmed down back at the house, he too felt it was not human made. I totally agree with you and I don’t feel these triangle UFO’s are black projects. They wouldn’t look like that and be so huge with no sounds and flown in areas where people could observe them. I later read in the newspapers that 5 separate police departments saw the same craft and so did several civilians giving the same report.” Frank Pitts. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
SPECIAL NOTE: The “St. Clair Triangle”, “UFO Over Illinois”, “Southern Illinois UFO”, or “Highland, Illinois UFO” sighting occurred on January 5, 2000 over the towns of Highland, Dupo, Lebanon, Shiloh, Summerfield, Millstadt, and O’Fallon, Illinois, beginning shortly after 4:00 am. Five on-duty police officers around these locales, along with various other eyewitnesses, sighted and reported a massive, silent, triangular craft operating at an unusual treetop level altitude and speeds. One of the police officers even managed to get a single, yet ambiguous polaroid photograph of the object. The incident was examined in various television shows including the ABC special Seeing is Believing with Peter Jennings, an hour-long Discovery Channel special UFOs Over Illinois, an episode of the Syfy series Proof Positive and a half-hour-long independent documentary titled The Edge of Reality: Illinois UFO, January 5, 2000 by Darryl Barker Productions. Sufjan Stevens sang about this incident in the song “Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois” on his 2005 album Illinois.
