July 19th, 2021 update: After many of you shared that you think this object could be a bird, or even batman balloon!, the witness followed up to share that they are positive that this was a UFO, maybe a drone, and also shared the original photo. "Attached is the original photo. I haven’t heard or seen anyone else discuss it outside of my wife and I. My wife was convinced it was a drone, which it could be, but like I said before, it made no noise at all, was clearly headed in specific location, and was traveling for several miles until we could not see it anymore. I tried doing some research on drones that may look similar to that and I couldn’t find anything that even came close to resembling that.
It also had no lights on it anywhere from my viewpoint."
An intriguing photograph of a black V-shaped UFO flying in the daytime sky has been sent to me. Now, if it weren't for the testimony, I would assume this photo just shows a bird, a bat, or perhaps a batman balloon?... not necessarily your classic triangle craft. At the same time, the more I look at the photo, the more I'm confused by it! So that curiosity along with the witness report leads me to investigate further. I'm trying to learn more about this sighting, but if you are also a witness, please report your sighting so that we can get to the bottom of this!
UFO was black, was not very large (maybe 10 or 15 feet wide), made no noise at all, was not traveling very fast (about the same speed a commercial jet fly's when it is about 40 miles from landing). We witnessed this from our back patio, and kept eyes on it for as far as we could see it (which was several miles).
I have received numerous triangle UFO reports recently, but not all of them are recent sightings. Witnesses are coming forward about UFOs they've seen in the past! Maybe now that the government is finally admitting that UFOs are real, those who've had UFO encounters will feel more comfortable sharing testimony.
I have noticed a pattern of Texans seeing UFOs in the 70s. And curiously enough, that is the decade when one of the most well-documented alien abductions ever occurred, the Travis Walton case. Is it possible the "ETs" were more active in the 70s than they are today?
Check out this triangle UFO report, and let me know if you think it's connected to other similar sightings. "Undecided in Texas" writes:
In the Years between 1973 and 1977 I vividly remember a large V shaped object or craft about 300 to 500 feet long flat on the bottom but raised on the top like a paper airplane would be. It was gray or silver in color and had large lights lining the bottom edges that were yellow and orange in color. It floated silently about 50 to 100 feet off of the ground above the Pecos Texas municipal airport. While were at the at the Athletic swimming pool next to the airport everyone was outside in this bit of my memory , entranced by the object all staring at it silently. I could only see the back of peoples heads randomly in front of me all looking at the object sort of hypnotized by it. That is all I remember, but it has stuck with me for over 45 years now. Was it a dream? Is there anyone out there with similar experiences? Anyone that remembers this particular incident?
The witness recalls that other people also saw the UFO, and that they looked "sort of hypnotized by it." Interesting!
As I mentioned before, triangle UFOs are pretty common! If you've seen one, help crack this mystery, by reporting your sighting.
"My father came home from work with an Air Force officer I had never seen and they sat me down and told me it was a secret helicopter test” - Witness Recalls Childhood UFO Sighting
In the summer of 1972, a young boy witnessed a triangular-shaped craft hovering in the sky for over a half an hour. Not long after, his father came home with an Air Force officer, and the boy was informed that he'd seen a "secret helicopter test."
One wouldn't be surprised if this sighting never made the light of day. However, zoom forward to 2021, and Tom Wolf is finally sharing his incredible encounter:
My understanding is you investigate ufo sightings in Texas. I realize there is no shortage of those, but when I had one in the seventies I contacted the local sheriff in Robstown and they contacted my father who was a squadron maintenance chief at NAS Kingsville. My father came home from work with an Air Force officer I had never seen and they sat me down and told me it was a “secret helicopter test.” Not the first time my dad lied to me.
Although we don't have a photo or video of this particular UFO, many others have seen "triangle" UFOs over the years, and so we have plenty of evidence to scour through:
New Witness to Stephenville Lights: Airplane passenger thought to themselves "that everyone will see this object as it enters the town"
You may know about the Phoenix Lights incident in Arizona, but did you know about the Stephenville Lights incident in Texas? The sightings are pretty similar, with the event in Texas happening years later.
In January 2008, many Texans watched a group of glowing reddish orange lights, which seemed to be part of a craft as large as a football field, slowly and silently fly overhead. The case was well documented, and it was later revealed that there was even radar evidence of it, and that the UFO was headed toward then President George Bush's Crawford Ranch, a no fly zone.
Although it's increasingly difficult to find information about the Stephenville Lights incident, and increasingly easy to accuse the government of covering it up!, we still learn new things about it every now and then. Case in point... a new witness to the mass UFO sighting has come forward! They submitted testimony to MUFON (case 115564):
I was on an American airlines flight from orange county to DFW in Jan 2008, sitting in first class 1D(window). AS we started our descent into Dallas, and probably 10 -15 min before we landed we were going over a town, which I later found was Stephenville. The elevation of the airplane was probably 10k-20k ft. Looking out the window and at an angle from the vertical of about 20 degrees below me was the layout of the town. At the edge of the southwest corner of the town there was an immense flying structure which was moving very slowly towards the NE at very low altitude (<500ft).. I estimated from my vantage point that the craft was about 2/3 the size of the town's footprint. AS I watched in amazement and thought to myself that everyone will see this object as it enters the town, it started to fade and became invisible over about 5 seconds, ie before it went across the town. All these years, I have not mentioned this to anyone because of the high strangeness, and given my seniority in a global eng/const company. I happened to see something about the stephenville sightings on TV and thought I'll add my statement, for what its worth. Note that I now live in Australia, so email best
"Power turned off" during sighting of black triangle UFO over Texas, same year as Stephenville, TX Lights incident
A triangle UFO seen over Texas in 2008, the same year as the famous Stephenville lights UFO event (which was proven to happen, and also was of a triangle UFO). According to the witness, who reached out to me, the power went off during the sighting, and then turned back on after the triangle UFO disappeared:
It was 2008 and one Saturday day me and my lil brother were playing at our house and it was about 9 in the morning and we ate and ect and like around 11 in the afternoon me and my lil brother decided to go our friends house and we went to his house and we played his xbox and we were just hanging out and till like around 1:58 in the afternoon me and my friend and my lil brother decided to go outside and play my friends psp's on his porch he had three so we played online together and like 5 mins later i decided to get up and i got off the porch to look for my friends nerf gun and i it was under his tree so i went to get it and something caught my eye in the sky in front of me it was an black triangle object with three white circles on the corners and on the side of the object there were little colorful changing lights in 2 rows and the lights went left to right changing colors and it was like 300 feet in the air and it never moved in the air and the object never made noise and when i saw the triangle i told my friend and my lil brother to get off the porch and look of what i was looking at and they saw it two and when we were looking at the object there was a car coming down the street and out of nowhere my friends psp's turned off, my friends trailer power turned off and we were like whats going on and the car that was coming down the road turned off too like the person was driving and just turned the car off and just sat in the heat with the car off and when we saw all that we went inside my friends trailer and everything was off inside and we were freaking out and the light switches didn't work either and like 2 mins later we went back outside and on my friends porch to see if that object was still there and it was gone and the power just turned on and the car was still there and the person was still sitting in the heat of the car and when the power turned on the car turned on and the person drove off like it was nothing and the day after my friend moved and we never heard from them again.
Is it possible the Stephenville lights was related to this other sighting, which occurred about 349 miles away? If so, what could this mean? Were aliens visiting Texas in 2008, or could there have been an increase in top-secret military activity during that time?
I'm following up with the witness for more information, but in the meantime, share your thoughts and theories below, and report your triangle UFO sighting if you've ever seen one.
