Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was a triangle, longer than wide, arrowhead shape, like a paper airplane. It appeared to be black. It was unlit and made no discernible sound.
Size of Object(s)
A helicopter that appeared moments later in the exact same spot and altitude seemed slightly larger than the triangular object.
Description of Area / Surroundings
San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California is an urban area. We were between Ventura Blvd. and the Ventura Freeway. The low grey clouds had city lights reflecting off of them which, helped define the object.
Full Description & Details
It was late in the evening and completely overcast. My brother was having a party and I was with him outside with several other people. The cloud layer was about 3,000 feet AGL. One of us observed a black triangle descending silently from the clouds, perpendicular to our position. The triangle moved right to left above and in front of us. It then turned 90 degrees. Facing away from us, and slowly ascended up through the clouds. My first thought was that it was a hang glider even though that made no sense since it was late at night, overcast, and we were in the city, far from anywhere someone would hang glide. We observed the triangle for approximately 15-30 seconds. Within moments of its disappearance, a police helicopter was at the same spot and shown its spot light ahead to the spot where we had spotted the triangle, as opposed to the ground which is the norm. We did not see the triangle again. There were no lights nor any sounds emanating from the object.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It was the shape of a paper airplane. A triangle. I can't think of anything that would be flying that low, unlit, in the city, in clouds.
I have been in the car business for nearly 30 years and have some flight training. I love airplanes. I have been to college for a teaching degree as well as for broadcast communications. I did not receive a college degree.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I can't imagine there is not other intelligent life elsewhere. I am not saying this was extraterrestrial, but it was odd. I never heard back from mufon but it was on this website where I first saw that triangular Ufos are becoming common. I had never heard that before I sent the report to mufon. This is what prompted me to report it again here.
It was very interesting how quickly the police helicopter appeared, shining its light where moments before the triangle had been.
