Full Description & Details

The article is titled "UFO Over Maryland?".]]

We live in a single family house on a hillside over looking "the valley" where Reisterstown RD. runs from east to West. We are on the south side of Reisterstown Rd. (21 Old Tollgate Rd). I was laying on our trampoline looking up at the stars and I noticed that some of them were dissappearing almost directly above me. There was a very faint V shape that I could see moving slowly from south to north.

As I looked harder at it, and it began to move directly over the valley, it was below a very slight cloud layer that was at most 1000 ft. I guess that because it was reflecting some light from the valley. When the vehicle came between the cloud layer and myself you could see that it was pretty much perfectly triangular, almost equilateral.

It was black with the exception of a very slight gray V shape along the bottom. There were no lights what so ever on it. Nothing at the points of the triangle, no collision stobes. It looked a good bit like a stealth fighter from directly below, but I could not see the serrated rear edge. I have seen both stealth aircraft up close on the ground and doing daylight flybyes at around 300-600 feet, and it did look a bit like one.

There was no sound what so ever. There was no masking noise in the area to disrupt any sound coming off of it, and it appeared to be no more that 400 feet away when I first noticed it. No exhaust, no apparent heat trail, nothing.

It was moving very slowly, so although it was very low, I had a pretty good long look at it. It maintained altitude and heading and went straight north. I got off of the trampoline so that the pine tree in the back would not block my view and could see a fairly low angle view from the rear. When it got to a certain point, perhaps a half mile away it seemed to just dissappear, although as flat as it seemed, just the angle would have made it even harder to see.

It was definitely solid, and so black that it was extremely hard to see, even as close as it was. If I had not been looking directly at the stars it passed in front of I would never have noticed it. The thing that scared me about it was the fact that a thousand of those could go over this neighborhood every night and no one would even notice them.

I am very familiar with all known civilian aircraft, and all known military aircraft in the current inventory. I work for Lockheed Martin and I have had that interest since childhood. The absolute total silence of it was spooky, along with the slow air speed.

About 20 minutes prior to seeing it, a helocopter had made a complete transit of the area at a slighly higher altitude, which was interesting. I lived about a half mile from the Garrison county police unit and the county copter would at least pass by there if not land very frequently. Generally, the county copter goes over this area every night at around 11 or so. I could not see the colors on it, but it sounded like the usual, but not like the JetRangers that the state police fly. What made it notable was the slow racetrack it ran over the area, but with no spotlight to the ground as if it was looking for something. I don't know if that was related at all.

News report from W*USA 9 News:

UFO Over Maryland?

Written By Kari Pugh, Online Regional Reporter

2/22/2005

Frank Griffin is a firm believer in extraterrestrial life, but he didn’t like the eerie shadow he saw gliding across the sky behind his home in Owings Mills earlier this month.

The Lockheed Martin software engineer was in his backyard looking at the stars the evening of Feb. 9 when a black triangle hovering overhead caught his eye.

"It was very dark and this thing was so hard to see," he said. "But it was moving slowly, with no lights and no noise. Honestly, I didn’t feel comfortable. It was sort of scary."

Owings Mills, Md., is a densely populated suburb not far from a local airport, Andrews Air Force Base and the Patuxent Naval Air Station.

But for Griffin, who has studied aircraft since he was a child, the object didn’t look like anything he’d ever seen or heard about before.

The black triangle was at a low altitude, maybe 500 to 800 feet, with no lights, he said.

"It was so low, at first I thought it was something caught in the trees," Griffin said.

He said it looked a bit like a stealth bomber, but was "absolutely silent."

Griffin wonders if anyone else in the area saw something similar that evening. He spotted the object about 6:45 p.m. and watched its ascent across the sky for three to four minutes.

"It had only been dark maybe half an hour, 45 minutes," he said. "I wonder if it was out before dark."

Mysterious black triangles have been part of UFO folklore for years. Sightings of low-flying and silent aircraft are scattered across websites dedicated to the study of other-worldly activity.

The National Institute for Discovery Science, a group devoted to the study of unexplained phenomena, has gathered hundreds of reports from across U.S. and Canada of similar aircraft, often flying in high-population areas near major interstates.

One theory holds that the black triangles are experimental military blimps or balloons, perhaps equipped with electrokinetic propulsion systems, which would make them silent.

The military has never confirmed the existence of such balloons, but according to many UFO websites, Lockheed Martin did begin work on a triangular stealth blimp in 1982.

NIDS issued a report in August 2004 suggesting that the black triangles may be some kind of military aircraft, though the truth about them is not known.

Griffin finds solace in the fact that what he saw might have a logical explanation.

"I felt a little comforted when a buddy suggested it might be a military balloon," he said. "But I’d really like to know if anyone else spotted this thing."

Other Comments

I would love to know if anyone else in the area saw this. Had it been higher and faster I might have thought it was a stealth fighter or something, but at the distance I saw it, moving as slowly and silently as it was, I don't think it was anything military. Also, without any markers it was flying right in the BWI NW landing pattern, and there were planes fairly well stacked in bound in the area into which it was directly headed.

Full Description & Details

We were playing baseball. A friend of mine was playing 1st base and I had just gotten a single. We were the only two to see it because of the angle to home plate. A round silver object flew toward us out of the west at tremendous speed. Above us was a lone single cloud which appeared to cover an area maybe the size of a baseball held two inches from your eye. This thing came from the size of the pin head to the size of a dime right above us into the cloud in maybe 2 seconds. it did not exit the cloud in the direction we expected. instead obscured by the cloud it did a 180 and took off in the direction it came in. we both yelled and the other players looked at us before turning to look where we were pointing by then it was too late. to this day i have never witnessed anything move so fast. There is more to this story but I'm afraid you will think me a loonatic if i tell you.

My girlfriend Brandi and I were watching television at my apartment when she noticed an unusual movement outside. We both went out to the balcony to take a good look at the object. Neither of us could figure out what the object was so we decided to take a picture.

Witness Background

Grew up in south with my mom and brother. Dad was a no show. Many male father figures came and went in my life due to mom's profession. I always felt I have had some special abilities. My brother and I could communicate over large distances (~ 5 feet) and could read each others thoughts. He once saw two pink colored legs under his bed and some how I knew the mystery legs were pink before he told me. I could smell the colors he projected through his mind. I have a philosophy major from the William Bradley Pitt University. I now work as a financial analyst for Carnival Cruise Lines. Looking for a friend... Tall, young professional seeks SWF interested in water sports and metaphysics. Photography a plus.

we are living on tenth floor in a condominium, our balcony is looking over the moutain and behind the mountain there is a dam that supply water all over the state. in the same day of the sighting, the dam are doing the cleaning and all over the state are short of water supply for 2 days.

at about 8pm my mom asked me to get the telescope to watch the moon but i notice that not the moon and then it's start moving toward us at high speed and disappeared above the building.

then i saw every five minutes there are one lightball appear sometime there are two at the same time , one moving to left and the other one to the right. my mom said it should be planes , but it impossible coz within 3 hours i saw around 30+ of this kind of lights moving.

it's possible if it happen in USA but not in Malaysia , coz malaysia airport is not busy to have plane landing or taking off every five minutes. and that day is not peak season

Full Description & Details

It was around 11 p.m. on a Saturday night, I believe. My friends and I were on the deck talking about what we're going to do after we graduate from Cleveland State next month. And I leaned back in my chair and looked up at the sky. I saw three glowing lights in the sky in a straight line. I have never in my 22 years seen anything like this. The whole area was real quiet and my friends and I started to wonder just what it is we were seeing. The first thing I thought of was some sort of alien life form. It had to be, because there was nothing else I could think of that it could possibly be. After about 10 minutes the lights slowly vanished into the night sky. They were headed south so we figured the lights were on the other side and now blocked by the rest of the ship. We didn't get any photographic evidence but we all remember the night very clearly and still talk about it and wonder to this day.

This is the truth. Everything you are about to read is absolute bullshit

When I was 12 I was outside watching the stars. Suddenly, the guy from the lucky charms cereal box came down out of the sky, and raped me up the ass. Then while he was pulling his pants up, he hit a button on his hat, and said--"beam me up scotty" Then suddenly we 'dematerialized' and were taken up into the mother ship.

The image was captured while I was taking a series of pictures and did not see the object unitl much later that night while reviewing the snapshots on my computer.

I tried to notify the local newspaper, JPL in La Canãda, and CAL POLY Pomona but most everybody was skeptical. What do you think?

Full Description & Details

A friend of mine and I arrived at our train station about 7:45PM and started to head uphill on our way home. We were just talking, none of us staring at the sky as we didn't expect anything when out of nowhere I saw what looked like a ball of fire, blue/whitish in color as the color of fire on a stove. It had a little of a trail, not much, to the naked eye it was about the size of a nickle, it must have been huge upclose. It went by really fast, as fast as I could turn my head from one side to the other and dissapeared in the sky. I'm not sure what it could have been, but I know it wasn't a plane or anything man made and it was way to big to be a falling star. I thought I was seeing things when my friend said "did you just see that?".

I'm 24, my friend is 28.
