Date:

1980

Location:

Attica, New York, United States

Summary:

I observed a black triangle craft with one white light in the center and smaller lights at each corner. It was approximately 500 ft up and it hovered without making an sound. I watched it for just under a minute and then it moved behind some trees. There were other sightings that night in nearby communities that matched the same description

Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 

1:30 AM

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

1

Duration: 

total of about 3 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Black triangle with a bright white light in the center of the bottom of the craft. There were other lights, I believe one at each corner but I don't recall the color. I do remember they were turning on and off (just the small corner lights not the white light) Not sure about the size but it was probably close to the size of a full size airliner. If the craft was lower than I estimate then it could be a little smaller. It was absolutely silent and very steady in the air.

Size of Object(s)

see above

Description of Area / Surroundings

rural, just north of the Village of Attica, NY next to RT 98. Niagara Falls Air Force Base is about 45 miles from the sighting. The craft was over a wooded area just behind a residence.

Full Description & Details

I am a police officer that retired in 2014 after almost 36 years of service. Most of those years were in criminal investigations but in first three and a half years (1978 -1982) I worked in uniform for a small village police department (Attica, NY). In what I am quite sure was the early Fall of 1980 I was working a midnight shift. It was a very quite night and at about 1:30 AM I was conducting building checks near the intersection of RT 238 and RT 98. As I pulled out from one of the businesses onto RT 98 I began to turn north and at that time I noticed what I thought was an airliner with its landing lights on. I figured it was on approach to Buffalo airport. As I started north the first two things that struck me as strange was: the landing light looked very white/bright. Most lighting at that time was incandescent and had a slightly yellowish hue, secondly the aircraft appeared to be standing still. I attributed this to possibly the plane was heading directly towards my direction and that fact that I was moving. As I got closer the aircraft I noticed smaller colored lights one at each corner of the craft and I don’t remember the color or if they were blinking but I remember they didn’t look normal and about this time I had about reached the point where the craft was. I was fairly close to it as I was only about 500 ft in the air and only about 70 feet off the highway. At this time as I was passing by I could see a solid black triangle shaped craft. The white light was in the center belly of the craft and it clearly looked to be absolutely stationary. I drove about 100 yards beyond the craft and pulled into a parking lot of a business at Rt 98 and Prospect St at the north edge of the Village and I shut off the patrol car and got out to have a look. It was an extremely quiet night and absolutely no wind. I watched the craft hover absolutely stationary without so much as slightest movement up or down. It was not making any sound. Under these conditions I would have even heard the whirr of a prop even if an electric motor were turning but there was no audible sound what so ever. I watched this craft just stand there motionless and silent for what seemed like a long time but was probably just under a minute. I contemplated shining the car mounted spotlight at it to see if I could see any detail but as I wasn’t sure what this thing was I decided not to. All of a sudden the craft moved very slowly sideways and became concealed by trees. I took a different route to get to a high position on Rt 354 to see if I could see this thing again but that was the last I saw of it. Interestingly, towards the end of the shift at about 6 AM I heard a report on WHAM 1180 that there were other reported sightings of this craft north of Attica. One was in Barre Center, NY along RT 98 and then along RT 5 about a mile east of the City of Batavia. Their descriptions were identical to mine. I never said anything about this except to some close family members and in the back of my mind I figured it was some unknown military craft from the Niagara Falls Air Force Base. When I retired from Batavia PD in 2014 a reporter whom I knew well asked me if I had ever seen anything odd while working night shifts. This got me thinking about that night in 1980 and I started reading about similar incidents and it has me curious as to what that was that I saw.

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

The only other explanation would be some sort of unknown military craft. Possibly some lighter than air craft but I doubt it.

Date:

April, 1978

Location:

Newport, Gwent, United Kingdom

Summary:

Pulsating orb viewed from large patio window at approximately 1 mile distance.

Date Reported:

8/17/2015 3:27:56 AM

Sighting Time: 

4.00pm

Day/Night: 

Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

Many

Duration: 

2 - 3 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object was a pulsating spherical orb. The colour varied between orange and electric pink, almost like the old sodium street lights after they were first switched on.

Size of Object(s)

At the distance that I viewed the object it appeared to be approximately 1/2 degree in diameter. That would put the actual size of the object at around 20m in diameter.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

The object was approximately 2.3 Km away at a height of around 260m

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban area. Major power plant (Uskmouth Power Station) approximately 2 miles west of the object.

Full Description & Details

Around 4 pm on a dull day in April I think. The cloud cover was unusual: low (around 800 feet) and extensive, like a flat grey blanket over the whole area. I was alone at home, looking due west out of my lounge patio door windows toward the town of Newport, in the direction of the locality called Maindee (2 miles away). I was observing the very unusual cloud layer when a pulsating, orange-pink orb descended slowly to hover just below the cloud layer, pulsating at a frequency of around 1Hz (once per second). It appeared to be about 5mm in diameter at that distance. The orb hung there for a few minutes then, just as slowly, ascended through the clouds and disappeared. I immediately called the Maindee police station and they confirmed that they had received many other reports of the same phenomena but they were at a loss to explain it. The occurrence was reported the next day in the local newspaper (South Wales Argus). I am currently trying to retrieve a copy of the report from the Argus where my brother now works.

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

I don't think so. The impression was one of a craft descending in order to orient itself due to the extensive local cloud layer. I had never seen such a cloud layer, either before or since. It was remarkable in being so uniformly flat.

Witness Background

Control Systems Engineer, University education. At the time working at a local Chemical plant.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

My views were based on a number of books on the subject read several years before the sighting. At the time of the sighting I would say that I was fairly well-read, but UFO's were not uppermost in my mind nor had they been for a number of years.

Full Description & Details

How to describe a close encount, something I witnessed from my window at the rooftop.

First of all.. I remember that the sky was clouded that night..

Not particular interesting for star seekers..

What I saw was absolutely incredible..!

A cigar shaped object, strong orange light from within, from were I could see that it had an open frame. It reminded me of a honeycomb, but with square patterns instead.

It moved - completely noiseless - from one cloud to an other, with movements rather unpredictable, and unlike the way an aeroplane would or could change from direction.

You can imagine that I felt overwhelmed by this..detailed view..not far above but upclose.

A few days later I wrote a letter to my best friend..telling him about this experience of mine.

But he never took the guts to respond on that letter...as if he thought that I was probably on a trip (mushrooms or whatever..). Well..I'm not interested in using drugs...!

I'm a realistic type of guy, someone who never accepted the idea that we are alone. in this tremendous Universe.

For me this was more a confirmation of my healthy curiosity, rather than having the idea that I was kept in the Matrix. Fiction vs non fiction.

i don't blame anyone for being sceptic...but judging without knowledge is what most people do..unfortunately.

For that reason I never spoke to anyone about it....until..now!





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

no..it can not.

they looked like stars moving in the sky, couldn't see any type shape they were so high up in the sky.they all looked like they were travelling at a good speed considering how far away they were and the distance it took them across the sky I was looking at.

Full Description & Details

as I was watching the Perseids meteor shower at midnight , which I must say were amazing, within 5 minutes myself and roommate see a light high in the stars moving north west in the sky, again about 5 or 6 minutes later another light travelling north west, and once again 3rd time light going north west, all about 5 minutes apart.. and then again 5 minutes from the third one another this time travelling in a south east direction. just wonder if anyone else star watching seen any of these sightings.

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

first thought was possible satellite travelling north west. but then again 3 within 15 or 17 minutes. and again the 4th heading south east

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I do have a open mind on the ufo phenomenon, now makes myself wonder how much movement going on in the stars above us after seeing 4 unexplained lights in the sky.

Full Description & Details

I was looking out at the sunset when I saw a long object traverse the sunset. I thought it's an airplane, but gradually saw no wings or tail. It was near the Ninoy Aquaino Internation Airport(NAIA) that further details my assumption. I told my mom, "It's a plane" but I still think it's a UFO.

Maybe an airplane? But as I said it had no noise.
