Full Description & Details

We were all sitting out side and my brother noticed that in the sky there were 3 red lights. Upon first look we all thought they were just lights on top of an antenna tower. When we looked again we noticed that there were 3 red lights in a Triangle Formation. Then about 5 minutes after that they began to move, slowly, to form a diagonal line in the sky (bottom left, right middle, upper right). The lights stayed in that diagonal formation for about 5 minutes then the one in the middle started to move slowly towards the one on the upper right and they began to blink at each other. Shot fast blinks. Then slowly the upper right light blinked a few time and vanished. The one in the middle that was moving stopped and then began blinking with the bottom left light. The bottom left light then disappeared. Now there is only the one in the middle remaining. The lone red light begins to blink a little slower then disappears. That all took about a span of 15 - 20 minutes. While that was happening a few people called up friend around the area and asked them to look in the sky where they were. Everyone in the Orland area who was contacted saw the same.

After about 30 minutes of the lights being gone, another light appeared again. Every quipped that "The Aliens are back" and our attention was focused on the sky again. This light appeared where I would say the last light to disappear was last seen. The light continued to blink slowly with no movement and then in about 5 minutes disappeared again.

Other Comments

I know the difference between how satellites move in the night sky and what airplanes or helicopter lights look like. I don’t believe what we all saw were anything like that. Above all I would just like this story to be out there, this way I can find out what I actually saw. (If I'm told it's a weather balloon then why WOULDN'T I Believe it??? :) =0)

Full Description & Details

Hwy 126 Veneta, Oregon Fern Lake Ridge. My SUV and I was traveling to Eugene with a destination of 30 miles to a birthday party. Them something flu infront of me. -I said - What's that! Again. What's that? I said out loud. -Bat's areout summer is here. Look at that spot. No it just standing there . Oh! Where did it go Oh! There it.!There. Whooo!

I open my window. Asked if any one -can see this? Look. But no one was paying attention. It followed me for 30 miles and them went away.

Why followed me? I'm not sure. But when I returned home 3 hours later there was two keychains with 2 figures of aliens (I never have seen one therefore I'm not sure if they look like that) waiting for me. Freek. I remember beeing very happy a seing an UFO two times in my life time it was mourvelous. It is marvelous..

Two weeks before. Sunday february not sure of the date. Merda! No camera.

Clear Lake Road Elmira, Oregon. I was coming from my grocery shopping after working for 4 hours and as I look up there above the pine trees a espherical ball almost lake a dome. Windows at the botton part and upper part. Just above the pine trees. Who has such technology?

Why they followed me? Just a lot of questions and no answers. If you have one I would appreciated.

Location:

Roscoe, Illinois, United States

Summary:

It was the same Illinois triangle I've been reading about, but the sighting my dad and I had was obviously much earlier. As we saw it, the thing stayed stationary but rotated on it's axis, then seemed to have vanished in the amount of time it took me to run inside to get my mom, then back out. I'm sorry, but that is wicked fast for something to have flown out of sight in the wide open, bright-starred, rural Illinois sky. It is still, to this day, the most beautiful and bright sky I have yet to see. But anyway, t would be hard to say if the thing looked man made or not, but then again it wasn't so much how the thing looked, but more what the thing did. It was way cool and I'll never ever forget it.

Witness Background

At the time I was only small kid which is probably why I didn't report it to many people other than my dad who was right there. I mean who would believe a little kid talking about a ufo he saw? Now, I'm twenty- five years old and I'm still taking my sweet 'ol time with college, but I have an internship at Senator Feingold's (Dem., WI) office and am busy campaigning. I now live in beautiful LaCrosse, WI, but grew up in Illinois, which is beautiful in it's own way. I spend much of my time studying ufo, ghosts, Cydonia, and what-not. I'm a conspiraacy theorist to the core. I am no sucker, so if the evidence is there for one thing and somebody tries to tell me it's something else without any evidence, I likely won't believe them. Also, I love your site. Thanks!

Other Comments

Please call me. I would love to know how to get more involved with this sort of thing. The evidence is there, I only think the pub lic needs to have the evidence spoonfed to them in order to get them all to start asking more questions. Also, my dad said he and his brothers and sisters use to see seird things out on the dairy farm they grew up on back in the fifties and sixties, including the triangle. His explanation: swamp gas!

Location:

about 5 miles west of Morristown, New Jersey, United States

Summary:

Distant red lightning backlighting sporadic clouds at night, then deep red "flashbulb" type flash lit up whole countryside (unspecific position but from direction of lightning and high up - based on shadows cast on snow of the bare trees). Returned to side street to investigate and got red "flashed" again (seemed faster than a flashbulb), but only about 20 meterst away directly ahead and about 10 meters above road (estimated size of light source about 2 meter diameter).

Full Description & Details

I was driving with a good friend and another guy I'd just met that night down a country highway, Route 24 westbound about 8km west of Morristown, NJ (no other traffic) around midnight during winter of 1979 (or maybe 1980), probably near New Years. Weather was cold with clear air and scattered cumulus type clouds.

Something caught my eye and I looked over my left shoulder and saw the clouds backlit by red lightning. I turned my head back to the road and was just starting to tell the other guys about it when the whole countryside lit up with a deep red flash (reddish maroon), like a quick flashbulb going off - and by the shadows of the leafless trees lining the road on the snow, estimated the light source to come from the same direction as the lightning and fairly high up (about 30 degree angle). The heater and radio were on with the windows up so we didn't hear anything, but all jumped at the flash and decided it must've been a power transformer blowing up on a telephone pole but could not explain the red lightning behind the clouds (although I was the only one to have seen that). A very small road (later learned to be Picatinny Road) intersected at a T to Route 24 about where we thought the transformer must be so we turned around to go back and investigate for a possible fire.

There is a streetlight (though not on) at the intersection and I turned off the heater/radio and put the windows down. Just when the car got underneath the streetlight it went on quickly (unusual for these types that need to warmup?). We all jumped until realizing it was white light and from the streetlight. I turned right to head up the small road and me and my friend were leaning towards the dash to look forward, while the new acquaintance in the back seat was looking out the back of my station wagon at the streetlight. About 50 meters from the corner, the new guy in back said the streetlight was now flickering - me and the other guy looked out front even more closely, but it was very dark, even with the headlights.

Then, an estimated 10 meters above the road and only about 20 meters in front of the car (just above bare trees lining the road) a bright red flash (slightly faster than a flashbulb?) and about 2 meters in diameter (looked like a large searchlight, as I could, I think, make out a central filament or something) hit my friend and I right in the face, temporarily blinding us. Although I had always convinced myself that if confronted by a UFO my curiosity would win out, I instead instinctively hit the gas and skidded down the icy road determined to hit the object with my large car and get physical proof of some sort (along with maybe a simple fight/flight response too). My friend felt the car move forward and yelled "What the fuck are you doing?!", but by then we'd passed where it should have been, I slowed and stopped, and I got out of the car, but was still blinded. We had heard not a sound.

I don't recall if my friend got out of the car, or the other guy - although the guy in the back had not been been blinded since he was looking backward toward the streetlight on Route 24 when it flashed. He was very quiet as we talked about it awaiting our vision to return, which took a couple minutes or more. There was no time loss, no sound, nothing - just the light, once direct and close, and another more distant and indirect - along with the weird red lightning.

The next day I told my father what had happened and then later in the day, he showed me a paper with headlines saying basically "13 unexplained atmospheric explosions in the New England region with numerous UFO sightings around them". I don't think it was a tabloid paper, but a reputable one (and would now like to search archives for some proof of this event).

My friend and I got together a year later and we remembered the event in similar detail very well. He said whenever he tried to talk to the 3rd guy about it, he didn't want to and was "freaked out" about it all.

I've never reported this to official channels (although a couple years ago did pass on a report similar to this to a UFO organization on the web, but only got an auto-confirmation of receipt).

Witness Background

I am currently a science teacher (biology degree), but had been in the Air Force just prior to the incident as a clerk, but fascinated with flight and understood tech capabilities at the time. I'd read a fair bit on UFOs, but remained objective. I was very surprised at my "instinctual" reaction to "attack" instead of passively investigate - but many things went on in my mind at the time, not just simple survival. I had a big car, thought being aggressive would be a surprise defensive move, wanted to hit something to get a piece for physical proof, etc... Being a public teacher, although I tell this story to students with much premising, I'd rather not go public with my name at this time.

Other Comments

Since you are located in Seattle, I would very much like your help in trying to track down any information/reports on this incident. It should be recorded in New York area newspaper archives.

I watched for a few minutes and it moved again. I woke my husband up and we got out the binoculars. It had several lights and just hovered for the longest time but kept tilting back and forth. It was the brightest light in the sky. Looked like headlights almost very white. Finally I just went back to bed.

I was on the roof of my girlfriends house with my girlfriend in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, actually not to far from the infamous alien rain forest El Yunque. We just happened to look up and saw one or two silver/ white objects moving across from one side slowly to the other. After this there appeared many other of the same objects doing the same things, some occasionally floating up and down, unlike any apparent airplane. These objects, also unlike airplanes, had no visible lights and were much higher, because at this time numerous airline airplanes flew by and were very far under these objects. As time passed by my girlfriends and I searched for binoculars but didn't encounter any. We wished to call someone but couldn't think of anywhere to call for this situation. As time went on they seemed to grow in number and at times we saw pairs and even three together. As night came they seemed to stop coming or where covered by clouds.

Full Description & Details

I was driving a truck for a lady in West Virginia hauling wood bark to Columbus Ohio and had three fellow drivers riding with me. It was about the same time that a comet was in the sky and we were looking up every few minutes anyway. Then all of the sudden we all seen a very bright white ball falling toward the trees beside route 35 in Jackson, Ohio. I said "Look, its a falling star". But then after a few seconds of watching it I said, "Wait, that dose'nt have a trail, falling stars have trails of sparks." That made my friends pay closer attention. Then one of my friends yell'ed "Holly Shit, that damn thing just went accross the field!"

I was ready to stop in my own curiosity and they both were pleading with me not to. They were frightened about what it was. And after I thought about what I had see myself I was getting terified myself. One of my friends that seen this is now a police officer in Charleston West Virginia and he will still to this day tell you what we saw. It was nothing like any of us had ever seen in our lives, and it did not seem of man made origin.

Full Description & Details

While sitting on a balcony of a 2 story home, a friend and I were smoking one last cigarette before bedtime. I looked across the street and saw a bright orange sphere just behind the roof of a 3 story house. My friend eventually caught a glimpse and as we stared it started moving VERY slowly towards the right. At this point we were in a state of unimaginable fear, shock if you will, hair raised on skin and a sense of impending doom. We waited until it moved behind the roof of the house (from the proximity of the area the sphere looked as though it were the size of a small car) . Suddenly TWO sphere's appeared from the other side of the home, smalller than the large one, as though it had split into two. The two then CAME TOGETHER to form the exact size of the previous sphere. It moved slowly and disappeared out of sight. I have seen swamp gas, and this was NOT IT! We were both unable to sleep that night. Neither of us has seen anything like it since.
