UFO Sighting Report


August, 31, 2011


Lackawanna, New York, United States


Bright light/triangle shaped craft. Moving towards, then away from my apartment.

Date Reported:

9/1/2011 3:52:59 PM

Sighting Time: 

8:55 PM

No. of Witnesses: 



15 mins

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Possibly an upside down V shaped craft, or a triangle shaped craft, moving at an angle to make it look as though it was an upside down V shape.

Size of Object(s)

Approx 20 ft wide, 15 long, and maybe 12-15 high.

Description of Area / Surroundings

No military bases for a few miles so far as I know. Its a suburb of Buffalo. Mostly residential. No tall building, besides the Basilica.

Full Description & Details

I looked out the window on the side of my apartment towards the Basilica, and noticed a bright light floating for several seconds. After watching for a few more seconds it starting to bounce up and down. I then called my girlfriend to the window to take a look. The light starts to curve and move out towards South Buffalo. I went and grabbed my friend from next door to take a look, and then the light starting moving back to the right and towards my apartment window. As it got closer I could kind of see a shape and it looked almost like the profile of a helicopter. But there was no noise, indicating that it was in fact a helicopter. It proceeds to come closer to my apartment, and stops, apparently floating over Lackawanna town hall. Then it turns back towards South Buffalo. This is when I get a good look at it and notice, This can't be a helicopter, Helicopters don't have wings, especially ones that point at a downward angle. The craft may have been triangle shaped and moving upwards, hence the downward pointing wing like protrusions. It may also have been an upside V shaped craft. There were three bright lights arranged in a triangle, 1 in the fore, 2 in the rear.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Possibly a man-made craft, but from the sound (or lack there-of) I find that to be very unlikely.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Up until about 3 years ago when myself and my girlfriend had a similar siting to this one, I was not very interested. After seeing a similar strange flying craft of some sort, my interest in UFOs grew. Now I watch the occasional documentary, and look at videos online, mostly to see what peoples opinions are.
