Back on January 5, 2000 police officers and citizens of St. Clair County in Southern Illinois claim to have spotted a large, triangular unidentified flying object. Folks from Highland to Millstadt claim to have seen the object, and all described it as a big thick hovering triangle. However other than one blurry Polaroid snapshot, there were no photographs or videos to back up the eye witness claims.
Scott Air Force Base is directly below the UFO’s alleged flight path, which made “military exercise” the most likely answer to these reported sightings. Alas, the airfield was closed that night, as was the control tower, and the military has denied any aerial exercises took place on the evening in question. – jaunted
Notice that in the video the officer says the 2000 silent triangular black UFO was trying to project the star field from above it underneath it as a way to camouflage itself. This is exactly what one of the 1997 Phoenix lights eye-witnesses I heard on Art Bell said about that massive soundless black triangle. This is not an isolated rare thing. Here is a map of triangle UFO sightings:

… During the ensuing years (2000-2004), NIDS received hundreds of reports from people in the United States and Canada reporting large triangular aircraft, often silent and often flying at very low altitude and at low air speed. In many cases, the objects were brightly lit. NIDS files also include reports of Flying Triangles from remote areas.
In mid 2004, NIDS reviewed its database that contains the locations of the Triangle sightings in the United States. The sightings of Triangles appear primarily adjacent to population centers and along Interstate Highways, with sightings clustered on both coasts.
NIDS has amassed almost 400 separate sightings of triangular/boomerang/wedge-shaped objects. Many of these craft are brightly lit, low flying, and traveling at unexpectedly low air speeds.
In earlier reports, NIDS outlined a tentative correlation between reported sightings of Triangles and the locations of Air Mobility Command and Air Force Materiel Command bases in the United States.
Like a Star Trek “uncloaking”
According to ground observers, the features of a Black Triangle are indeed impressive.
For example, the NIDS study includes the observation of a Port Washington Wisconsin person who encountered a large object that flew over her home at 500 feet altitude in October 1998. Her eyeing of the clear starry night was interrupted as the craft came into her field of view.
“Suddenly this monstrosity came out of the ‘blue’, just like a Star Trek ‘uncloaking’, no kidding…so quiet I couldn’t believe it and so huge…no more than 500 feet or so up, and big enough to take up my field of sky vision,” she reported.
Crude mathematics, the witness recounted, would make the vessel about 200 feet wide and 250 feet long. – space.com
