- What: Large triangle shaped craft moving quickly and silently in straight line
Not to be outdone by the latest "flying saucer" sightings, it looks like the triangles are back. Well, we have at least one report of a triangle-shaped craft - large and silent but moving at great speed across the sky - on the Texas coast. It was submitted to MUFON:
On the evening of Oct.14th 2014 around 10:45pm I went out the front door(which faces East) of my house to close the windows on my old truck. It was a very clear night, not one cloud...when I finished with my truck I looked towards the Eastern skyline, I saw the constellation " Cassiopeia". I had read in "Astronomy" mag that the "M13" galaxy could be seen within about 1 degree from the constellation, so I looked all around it but saw nothing...I was thinking that on the next night I would use some binoculars. Just when I was turning to go back in the house, I caught a glimpse of something moving towards me in the sky, very close to where I had been searching......my eyes had become adjusted to the darkness by then and at first I thought it may be a flock of geese or duck flying in a 'V formation"...but as it got closer I could see that it was a well structured craft shaped like a triangle with large dim lights...it moved in a straight path almost over my position...I estimated it was traveling at 300 to 500 mph...I viewed the craft till it vanished in the western horizon!...or about 30 to 45 seconds....I also estimate it size to be approximately the size of a Half moon, and my distance from the craft (at it's closest ) at 3000 to 5000'.....the craft made no sounds, I had no time to grab a camera or even inform anyone else of what I was seeing....As the UFO flew almost overhead I had many thoughts...How closely it might resemble the "Phoenix lights" craft...How lucky I was to see such an object....the lights weren't bright but dimmed...reminded me of some "Ghost ship" stories of sailing ships...unless someone (like myself) just so happened to be looking in the right direction...they would never had known what had just flown over their heads......after I completely lost site of the UFO I hung around for about 5 minutes more just to see if there were any other craft, or planes or jets that may be in pursuit....nothing...nothing on the news afterwards either...still...I felt awed to have witnessed the event!...I thought it best to report it to "Mufon!" Wish I had some witnesses or additional evidence....but I do not!
