Boston, Massachusetts, United States


Two (2) Military Veterans Witness Triangle Sighting Over Boston's City Hall Plaza...Thursday, 23AUG2012, at approx. 2030hrs.

Date Reported:

10/9/2012 12:22:54 PM

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



4 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object was uniformly triangle in shape, a little more elongated than unilateral, with a dark black outer frame of the structure, with the appearance of an indented inner frame of lighter black/dark gray in color. On the each corner there was a white light rimmed in a yellowish-gold color, while in the very center there was a very large bright white light, also rimmed in the same yellowish-gold color, with 2 smaller red lights on the aft/rear outer frame, equidistant from one another.

Size of Object(s)

With hand held out directly in front of me, the object appeared about the size of the length of my thumb.

Description of Area / Surroundings

This event took place in an urban setting (downtown Boston), over a large open area (City Plaza). Buildings in the vicinity included Boston City Hall, The JFK Federal Bldg (2 towers), located on the North side of the plaza, and 2 high-rise bldgs just to the South side of the plaza.

Full Description & Details

I am a US Navy veteran, with a background as a trained security team member during my military tour, as well as being a Security Enforcement Officer, and also a Park Ranger, all of which means I must be a responsibly trained individual in my field, as well as a CRITICAL observer of everything around me at all times, especially in any type of emergency situation. My friend, who is a US Army veteran, has a similarly trained background as well.

On the evening of Thursday, 23AUG12, at approx 2030hrs, we observed a unique array of lights heading in from a direct Northerly direction, in a straight line, toward Boston's City Hall Plaza. As this light array approached closer, we realized this was NOT a conventionally known aircraft of any type or kind, and that it also DID NOT have the usual REQUIRED red and green/port and starboard lights anywhere on this craft, and that there were no landing lights or wing strobe lights anywhere seen.

This UAP continued in a straight line, flying low enough to observe all details we could see and make note of, coming directly overhead of these 2 witnesses, and passing in a straight line south, disappearing behind a couple of high-rise buildings just south of City Hall Plaza.

There was NO audible sound of any kind whatsoever from this craft.

Just prior to this sighting there was a commercial jet aircraft, with all standard landing light array on, flying from WNW, into Boston's Logan Airport, jet engines clearly heard by us, and about 5 minutes AFTER this UAP passed overhead, there was a 4-prop engine plane flying from Logan Airport, in westerly direction with very audible engine noise.

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

No, it cannot. We are 2 military veterans VERY familiar with all known aircraft types, and this clearly was not craft of any current KNOWN technology, of any country, on this planet. Previously to sighting this object, there was a conventional commercial airplane, with all landing lights on, making its approach to Boston's Logan Airport, and about 5 minutes AFTER the sighting, another, smaller, coventional 4-prop engine commercial aircraft flying out of Logan, neither of which were on a north to south flight trajectory. The first commercial aircraft wwas flying from the WNW direction into Logan, while the second commercial aircraft was flying W out of Logan.

Witness Background

That has been detailed in the main body of this report above.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have watched many documentaries on the subject of UFO's and UAP over the years, and have always found the subject interesting.

Other Comments

I am an Aboriginal American, involved in the ceremonial life of my People, and have also been involved in a few Star Lodge Ceremonies, which concern UAP and Star People, which has always been an active part of our history for hundreds of years. We do NOT follow or believe in myths or legends about this subject.
