I’m posting this over a year later now; since I wasn’t too eager to talk about it in the public. I’ve seen formations of big orange lights before, flying stars and recently 3 orbs flying in triangle formation; but this one last year was special to me. The drawing were made right after the sighting. Sighting occurred on May 14 2007 between 01:00 AM and 01:50 AM local time, Me and a buddy saw a boomerang shaped flying object in the clear night sky; which was flying very low over my yard. My buddy saw it first. It first appeared to be a very fast moving cloud. It kinda uncloaked itself and first appeared to be transparent. Then he was able to see the small lights on the bottom (which by that time were turned on) and then was able to see whole ship, it appeared to be of a silverish color with a strong reflecting effect…like a mirror…like it was heavily polished.
For a blink of an eye it recloaked and turned into a “cloud” again, but then instantly reappeared. By that time my buddy informed me what was going on; since I was looking in a different direction. The ship then reappeared near the Great Dipper. There was not a single cloud that night; so this thing caught our attention. There was a church tower near by so we figured that the object flew quite low (approx. 82 feet/25 meters). The boomerang kinda uncloaked in front of our eyes, and as soon as it had passed the Great Dipper it cloaked again and disappeared. It had a orange glow at the front, some sort of dome at the rear and some sort of lights (which were turned off) and the bottom. We were able to see it in full detail. The ship’s color was silverish and the dome as well as the big lights at the bottom were appeared to be tinted (the small lights described above, where not visible any longer [turned off] ). I’d estimate the craft’s wingspan was the size of at least 3 or 4 Airbus A380 Airplanes put together. The sighting didn’t last long, maybe 2 minutes and a few seconds. I’d like to stay completely anonym for now; but if there are any questions or the like, please let me know by sending me an e-mail. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was visiting my friends who work in the international conference centre in Sonnenberg called Internationales Haus Sonnenberg, which is situated in the Harz Mountains in Germany and surrounded on all sides by national park deep forest for miles. The nearest town is Sankt Andreasberg (St. Andreasberg), the other side of the mountain, a fair distance away. We were all playing pool, when I wanted to come back to our rooms located in a place called the wohnhaus, which is where all the workers stayed. I went back there with my sister, and she heard a noise like a bat which got our attention and we looked around, and saw something moving behind the house. Before we knew it, this huge triangular object hovered over our heads and just stayed there. we were transfixed by it for i’m not sure how long, my younger sister was scared, as we had no idea what it was. Then it darted at incredible speeds behind the tree line of the mountain. We ran back to tell the others who thought we were seeing things and laughed at us, so they came out to see it disbelieving us, but there was nothing there, so they laughed at us even more, then we suddenly noticed it was above our heads. We hadn’t even heard it, or seen it , but it was there, a huge huge spinning triangle. It had lights all on its outside, circular lights.
It seemed so close we could reach up and touch it, but we all just stood there, part scared, we went to move into the house a little scared but as if it knew where we wanted to go, it moved and hovered over our apartments. It was transfixing, It moved like something I’ve never seen or heard of in my life. nor had anyone else. It could change directions like no other aircraft I know. It would dart in random directions across the skyline vanishing behind the trees, then just as quickly coming back and hovering exactly over our heads. I couldn’t see its colour, or details as it was very dark, there was no light pollution as we were in the mountains, all we could see was the lights that outlined the object. After I don’t know how long, the object back tracked incredibly quickly behind the trees and we didn’t see it again. We bashed around theories for what it could be, someone said it could be someone playing a trick on us in the forest, or a light display from the town the other side of the mountain but these are both impossible, the reasons, firstly someone has to sit somewhere high up on the mountain, deep in the forest but high enough to somehow see through the trees to the conference centre.
The conference centre itself was in a clearing in the forest, and the tree line the object vanished behind was a good distance away. in the darkness, not only would someone have to be sitting in a forest where wild boar and puma are prominent wildlife. Somehow in the darkness they would have to know where we were in the dark. Also lights do not make noise. This object a few times made like the ultrasound noise you can sometimes hear a bat make. As for a light show from Sankt Andreasberg, this too is impossible, there is no way the light would reach us, yet alone hover over our heads and know where we were, and there was no shows going on in the town of any kind. We know this was a flying object but what we don’t know, we were in such a remote area who knows what it was. All we know is that it was nothing we had ever seen before. I went out on my own a few times in the hope it would come back, but I never saw it again. I wish I had seen it again. I was fascinated. I would have posted my sightings sooner, but didn’t know of this site until I happened to find a reference to it. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
Seeing a giant triangular object just above my head. That the United States invaded Iraq, and after the fall of Iraq, when Saddam had been hiding in a mouse hole for some time, I saw that triangle. Just after Ramadan, two nights later, at about 8:00 pm, I stood in the middle of the yard and looked at the sky. I said how they saw the moon two nights ago when it is still impossible to see the moon. The sky was completely dark and foggy and no light could be seen. After a few minutes, I noticed the movement of an object moving in the dark sky. The more I noticed, the triangular shape was very, very giant. From my guess, each side of the triangle was more than 100 meters, but the back side looked a little smaller. Its height seemed very low, for example about 150 to 300 meters above the ground. Its speed was about 30 kilometers per hour, or the speed of a bicycle. It was completely silent and completely black and the same color as the sky. Maybe he had made that object in the sky for more camouflage. His height did not go up or down at all. His speed was exactly the same speed and in no way increased or decreased. Its direction was on a perfectly straight line, exactly from south to north, and it could not be left or right at all. I wanted to take a photo with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone, but that phone was useless and nothing could be seen inside the photo.
I called my brothers, but no one heard Saddam because it was almost cold and the windows were closed and they were watching satellite programs almost loudly. It took about 10 minutes for the object to reach me from south to north and move just above my head. If I turned my head and looked at it again, I could hardly find it, and from its speed and direction, I could tell where the sky is now, and I would look at it and find it again. In my opinion, that triangular object can be a UFO nest so that it can hold dozens of UFOs. (Like warships with dozens of planes on them) and I can say that I have seen the mother ship of the UFOs. Now the question is: That giant object due to its very low speed but much larger than the football field and its not going up and down and that it was completely soundless and without light; There were no satellites, planes, spy planes, helicopters or balloons. We all know that it did not look like man-made technology. And I don’t think it could be detected by human radar. That is, completely hidden from the radar. And what happened that night? So far I have not written these two events so accurately anywhere. And I’m going to send a copy of this post to Mufon in the United States. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer International Director.
I was standing outside, stargazing… It was the night of September 19, 2015, at 11:10 PM. I was outside in my yard, which was adjacent to an extremely large, vacant field that allowed for me to see the stars better at night due to the absence of ambient light. 45.7833° N, 108.5007° W, roughly. I was standing oriented N NE, looking at the stars directly above my head – I was really cleaning my neck in that moment, actually. When literally out of nowhere, there was suddenly an extremely large craft right above my head, in my direct line of sight. One minute I was looking at the gorgeous sky jeweled with stars, and in the next moment this thing seemed to have materialized right before my eyes, right above me in the sky. Suddenly the stars seemed to softly dissipate, and instead I was staring directly up at a very large craft. I could tell that it was something very big in size, as there was a hush that fell over the land; almost as though there was a large object in the region acting as a sound dampening agent, like acoustic tiles on a ceiling, soaking in the normal sounds of the night, if you may. Very surreal and absolutely silent. It was a triangle- huge, extremely dark, black as the night sky above me.
The entire triangle blocked out a portion of the night sky, yet only 2/3 of the craft was lit with under-lighting, from what I could see. There were about 10 to 12 circles that flanked two sides of the triangle, and each circle glowed a very gentle coppery gold, and seemed to be spinning, back and forth. They weren’t in rhythm with one another, and almost seemed to be fan-like, which is extremely hard to explain. I watched it in open-mouthed disbelief and entrancement for probably around 30 to 40 seconds. The point of the triangle that was flanked with two sides of circular under lights was oriented S- SW the entire time suddenly began to move very slowly to the south, and as I watched it move slightly away from me. I continued to follow it’s progression in the sky. It moved slowly for a few seconds, and then suddenly in a HUGE burst of speed and light took off to the S-SW. It made a brighter coppery/luminescent streak across the sky as it zipped out of view at break-neck speed. All without making a single sound. Needless to say it was a bit difficult for me to sleep that night, because that was the most amazing thing that I had ever seen. It felt so huge and almost alive in a way. Organic, or something.
Definitely something that I had never previously seen, but for some reason the entire event didn’t feel entirely unfamiliar either, for whatever reason. I wasn’t frightened, but intrigued. The entire next day, however, was so very strange. From the moment I woke up I absolutely did not feel alone, and at the time I lived by myself in a two bedroom two story duplex. It felt SO very odd in my apartment the day after, almost as though I had a silent audience- it was SO hard to explain. I wasn’t frightened at any point during any of this- more so amused. I began to comically joke with the air around me, and I remember beginning to say silly things like, “Nothing to see here, I literally just geek out to books and music, I’m not that interesting.” etc. The feeling stayed with me the entire day after.

It was 2007 opening day of rifle deer season. My girlfriend at the time and I went up to the ridge long before daylight. As we sat in the open ground blind I built we noticed a single orange/copper colored light moving in the sky. As we were watching it we noticed it was moving back and forth. Then in an instant it moves towards is and then turned into three lights in triangle formation. In between the lights was pitch black and blocked out the stars behind it. It slowly moved out the ridge straight towards us until it was almost directly above us. There was this ungodly Humm that was all I could hear. Then it was as if it seen us and in a split second streaked across the sky and disappeared. We jumped on my 4wheeler and went home to tell my mother who didn’t believe me. I felt as though the encounter drained the energy from my body. The dreams I had for weeks after the sighting were as if it happened over and over. I couldn’t get the humming out of my head. I was someone who never would’ve believed anything like that ever existed but I can now say there’s something out there. Feel free to contact me at anytime. Thank you NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While returning home from my shift in D.C., I observed a reddish light in the sky off to my right just above the treetops. It had the similar color and brightness of a radio tower but I knew there weren’t any there. As I traveled south on Route 5 from the initial sighting at Deborah Drive the light seemed to pace me. I noted no strobe lights a typical aircraft has. I also noted there weren’t any other vehicles out either. As I traveled South it edged closer until I reached a red light at Route 5 and New Market Road. It was a timed light so there weren’t any other vehicles around but myself. The craft was very large, I’d guess about 80 feet from tip to tip and it had a V shape to it. It point of it was facing back North and it hovered over the bank maybe 100 feet in the air. It had 5 red lights that were now very dim. It was a starry bright night and I could make out the profile of it very well. It made a very low pitched humming sound. I sat at the light for about a minute and I then realized I was sitting at a green light so I slowly crept off. As I did it slowly crept back in a Northern path. My phone was in my center console and for whatever reason nothing in my brain said to take a video or a picture. However several months later I worked up enough courage to talk to an Exxon attendant and the County First Bank employee filling them in since they have security cameras. I left my name and number with both and neither called back. I did not go to the Library which would have the absolute best view because I had already been humiliated twice. If you google V shaped craft on google the first image is exactly what I saw. I’ve never seen anything like this and it took me a long time to go a formal route with this but I would be intrigued to see what the security cameras may have captured. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I am 31 years old. I live in Sebring. I believe I have seen the same UFO twice in my life, it’s hard to say if it was the exact same one. Once, I saw it in the evening, flying towards the west as the sun was coming down, it was a V shaped craft, silver/gray, no distinct features, just a simple aircraft in the shape of a V, the point of the V seemed to be the front of the craft. Once again, I believe I saw the same UFO, this time, ten years later, but at night, flying extremely low, a V shaped craft flew over my apartment complex, while me and some neighbors were sitting outside, I saw one light coming up over the woods, it looked like an orange streetlight but it was moving towards us, just above the tree line, as I was watching it, wondering what I was seeing, two more lights appeared behind it, then two more, and two more, until we were looking at a V shaped craft with lights underneath. As soon as me and another neighbor jumped up to get a better view, it immediately changed direction and disappeared as it flew away, we chased it down the woods, past a couple of buildings in our apartment complex, trying to get into a clear spot of trees so that we could see it clearly, but it was gone. I am certain that it was the same type of craft both times, if not the same one. The first sighting was in 2010, over Avon Park, FL. flying in a direction away from the private airport, low enough for me to make it out clearly, but high enough for people to basically ignore it (I, however, have always been interested in stars and space exploration and am ALWAYS watching the skies). For years, I tried to research what I saw, and came to the conclusion that I must have seen a top-secret military craft. There is an Air Force Bombing Range in Avon Park and we do hear them practicing out there, and see them flying over the whole county, all the time… The second time, however, was in Sebring FL and I do have a witness to that encounter. Me and my neighbor were stunned and chased it to get a better view, which was impossible. We continued to joke that we saw a UFO, but he looked scared at what he saw, whereas I had already encountered something similar and did my own research and thought I was seeing something of man-made origin. However, it made a 90 degree turn and flew away faster than anything I had ever seen. It sounded like a gust of wind, several neighbors heard it, saw lights, but didn’t see it clear enough to form their own opinions of what it might be. Both of us know how man-made aircraft fly, what’s considered normal and what is impossible. Can a man-made craft turn at a perfect 90 degree angle, perfectly evade detection as soon as we set chase, and accelerate to top speeds in the blink of an eye? Both times flying “under the radar”. I’m willing to accept whatever it is, whether it was of alien origin, or man-made military. I just need to know what it was that I saw. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken– hope you are well my friend : It was the early hours of the morning, and I was looking out of my open bedroom window to see if the moon was visible, but unfortunately it was not. It was cloudy, but there were however some brakes in the clouds here and there. Disappointed that I couldn’t photograph the moon I went to close the window when all of a sudden I thought I saw something dart across a large brake in the clouds, where the sky was visible, so I immediately zoomed in on the area with my Nikon P900 camera and took some photographs, and while I was in the process of doing so, something large flew across the sky. I thought to myself “That was very odd”. I then close the window and put down my camera on the side table and then went straight to bed for some much-needed sleep. I woke up later that morning and I instantly remembered that I had photographed something strange out of the bedroom window in the early hours of the morning. I was very intrigued to see what I had captured, so I quickly got out of bed and got ready. I then went over to my camera and pulled out the S.D. card, which I then took over to the computer. Looking at the image on the monitor I could see that I had indeed captured something rather odd in the photograph, so I brightened it up revealing that I had captured a large metallic looking UFO in the photograph. This is very unusual it was pitch black outside when I took this photograph and there was no sound of any aircraft or anything else for that matter. What on earth could this large aerial object be? It clearly has structure to It, and it definitely seems to be metallic in nature. What had I captured flying over this area in the early hours of the morning. This is quite incredible… It looks like a rocket ship from an old comic book. The photograph was taken at 3:14 AM on the 30th of June 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

I was the third truck of four, that were running together. We left Oakland after a concert we were touring with, headed to San Diego. At about 3am I happened to see a light shine out across in front of us maybe two miles or so ahead of us on the right, and it went out. I didn’t think much of it. I thought at first someone was shinning deer. Than I saw a beam shine downward but didn’t see anything else. The origin of the light looked to be about 100ft above the ground. Then it went out. Then you could see white marker lights as it crossed the 5 and turned north on the other side and came at us. Before it reached us it turned back and went south and crossed back over the 5 to the west and the lights all went out and I couldn’t see it anymore. The fella in the truck in front of said he saw it off the the right just sitting there hovering. I saw light shinning in my passenger side window coming at me from a little behind me. I thought it was going to slam into the side of my tractor. It came straight at me. There were three very bright white lights across the front edge ot this thing, shinning right into my side window. It came to almost a complete stop, rotated tipped up on its edge and slid over the top of my tractor, and out over the front of my windshield. When we stop later that morning, and I stopped my video cameras to go back over that segments to see if it got recorded. I didn’t think it would catch it, because the cameras are set to look down out over the hood of my truck to the road in front of me. I would estimate that craft was about 30 to 50 feet above the truck in front of me. With a high degree of certainty it would say that this thing was about 14ft at it widest point, probably close to 20ft long. My tractor is 19.5ft long and 13.4ft tall. As it came over and out into view I got a really good look at it (see drawing) the edge of this was slightly larger than the light placement on the underside. Interstate lanes are 12ft x2 plus 11ft for both shoulders, that’s a total of 35ft. This was just a little larger than a single lane. Smallest Cessna has a 32ft wing span, and crop dusters are 34ft. this was no plane. It had no visible propulsion system. It could be a new military style drone but can drones hover without propellers or a fan system? More to the point, why would the military put people on the highway at risk. I’m still baffled that there is absolutely no light flash in my cab when it came at me. Should have seen the inside of my cab light up in the video. Just another strange aspect. I would have to say my buddies where really excited over this event, trying to put it into some kind of contexts. I tried to tell them you can’t. You’ll always have this with you, wondering what it was. I told them this was the third time I’ve had events in very close proximity with aerial phenomena, and it wasn’t even the strangest, and if you tell it to people that have never experience something like this, they’ll tell you, what you saw, isn’t what you saw. When we first saw it and it crossed the 5 heading east, a couple miles ahead of us. Had it kept going straight, it just would have been a low flying airplane under 500ft. At night! The map that’s attached gives context to what interaction occurred. The circle up by the Chevron Station is roughly where we were when I first saw the light shoot out to the east.

JULY 15, 2012……..WINGHAM NEAR CANTERBURY KENT ENGLAND
On the day of this sighting, Ray was out on one of his regular walks in this remote and relatively flat landscape. There are scant few agricultural buildings and the land is extensive in farming, with wide open spaces. The weather was thick cloud to the West with a small break in the cloud to the south with the sun breaking through to the left of a main coppice of woods.
The woodland recedes abruptly and there is a clear run of vision to the horizon panning from South West to South for about a mile and a half, from which a wind mill marks the start of a new line of trees.
In Ray’s account of his sighting whilst walking his dog, he states the following:
“I noticed something moving that I thought was a flight of geese. It caught my eye because right now, this is not happening around here-it did not fit.”“I kept my eye on it and realiszed that it was going too fast to be birds. Then I realized I was not looking at something a few hundred meters away – this thing passed into a lower density area of a cloud (heavy rain and storm clouds – c/n?) that was maybe 5 miles away, maybe more due to the elevation, I’m not sure… As it did this I saw that it was a solid object – dark grey/black. It was pointed at the front (hence me thinking I was viewing geese from my ground angle) and square like to the back, it had about five sides, like a classic diamond icon.
It was at about 22-25 degrees vertical, and I tracked it with my eye through about 80 degrees horizontal before it passed out of sight behind the trees of a small coppice. I guess it was about 4 or 5 seconds I was watching it for – I was so agog that I couldn’t say anything, my son was with me but playing with the dog, and forget about trying to film it – it was gone! I tried to explain it away, said maybe it was a shadow of something on the clouds, but there was absolutely no way I can think of to explain what I saw, and I have seen most kinds of aircraft in flight (I was obsessed with the things as a kid/lived next to a military and commercial airport…). When I got back to my parents’ house I told my mother what I had seen, she said she’s been seeing weird stuff in the sky all week, she’s even heard them – they make a buzzing/ringing noise apparently. Has anyone else seen anything?”
I met Ray on location and we got the positioning of the sighting photographed and filmed in transit with a live pan shot. It was reviewed that the time was closer to between ten to fifteen seconds, when we replayed the sighting footage and realized that the sighting from beginning to end was longer than the five seconds that Ray recalled, from his realization that he was not observing geese.

The former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs, says there is “compelling” evidence the flying objects exist and have been seen over U.S. airspace.
Luis Elizondo made the comments in a CBS interview aired on Sunday, weeks ahead of a government report on UFOs being released. After being asked by Bill Whittaker on CBS’s 60 Minutes whether UFOs—or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs)—were real, Elizondo said: “Bill, I think we’re beyond that already. The gov has already stated for the record that they’re real. I’m not telling you that, the United States government is telling you that.”
UFOs, long dismissed and relegated to movies and science fiction, have begun to shed the farce label in recent years after the release of footage of high-profile U.S. military encounters with aircraft of unknown origin.
In June 2020, tucked into the 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) added language requesting that the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense create a report with “a detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence reporting.” Two months later, the Pentagon followed suit with the new, more serious approach, creating a task force to investigate the encounters by U.S. military aircraft. The report is due to be released by next month.
In the Sunday CBS interview, Whittaker tells Elizondo that UFOs being real sounds “nutty, wacky.”
“Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities?” Elizondo said.
“Imagine a technology that can do 6-to-700 g-forces, that can fly at 13,000 miles an hour, that can evade radar and that can fly through air and water and possibly space. And oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet still can defy the natural effects of Earth’s gravity. That’s precisely what we’re seeing.
Asked by Whittaker what he says to skeptics, Elizondo said: “In some cases there are simple explanations for what people are witnessing. But there are some that, that are not. We’re not just simply jumping to a conclusion that’s saying, ‘Oh, that’s a UAP out there.'”
“We’re going through our due diligence. Is it some sort of new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed? Is it some sort of high-altitude balloon that’s conducting reconnaissance? Ultimately when you have exhausted all those what-ifs and you’re still left with the fact that this is in our airspace and it’s real, that’s when it becomes compelling, and that’s when it becomes problematic,” he added.
The former official spent two decades running military intelligence operations in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo Bay. In 2010, he took over the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. But many in the Pentagon dismissed Elizondo’s findings, and AATIP was dropped in 2012.
Elizondo said he and a few others continued to keep investigating independently.
Christopher Mellon, the former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence for presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, grew concerned that nothing was being done about UAPs. Mellon then helped Elizondo elevate the issue in the department and actually get it to the Secretary of Defense by leaking three Navy videos appearing to show UFOs to the New York Times, thrusting UFOs back into the limelight.
In August 2020, the funding came back and AATTP was re-established—now under the banner of the UAP task force—and service members now are encouraged to report strange encounters.
Several navy pilots have reported sightings of suspicious objects that defied the laws of physics on some of their missions.
Former Navy pilot Lieutenant Ryan Graves told CBS his F/A-18F squadron began seeing UAPs hovering over restricted airspace southeast of Virginia Beach in 2014.
He says his pilots see them off the Atlantic Coast all the time. “Every day. Every day for at least a couple years,” he said.
The program played a video of one being spotted by Graves’ squadron off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida in 2015. Sounding shocked, the pilots are heard saying: “Look at that thing, it’s rotating! My gosh! They’re all going against the wind, the wind’s 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing dude!”
Graves said pilots believe these objects are secret U.S. or enemy spy technology. He said it was most likely a threat observation program, probably from Russia or China.
Another two pilots told the program that training about 100 miles southwest of San Diego, they saw Tic Tac-like object that mirrored their moves before disappearing abruptly. Just seconds later, the same object was detected by a navy ship 60 miles away, they said.
The government has mainly ignored UFOs since 1969, when it closed its Project Blue Book investigation. It logged 12,618 UFO sightings between 1947 and 1969.

U.S. intelligence agencies are expected to deliver a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” to Congress next month, sparking renewed interest and speculation into how the government has handled sightings of mysterious flying objects — and if there’s any worldly explanation for them.
The unclassified report, compiled by the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense, aims to make public what the Pentagon knows about unidentified flying objects and data analyzed from such encounters.
While UFOs have been part of American mythology for decades, this report is different. Legitimate debates over UFO sightings have gained traction in recent years after several leaked photos and videos from the U.S. Navy appeared to show mysterious flying objects in American airspace.
Last year, the Pentagon declassified three such videos captured by Navy pilots, intensifying speculation over the incidents, which have been confirmed by pilots who have observed them and even presidents who have been briefed on them.
Here’s how UFO sightings jumped from the realm of science fiction to the halls of Congress.
What do we know so far?
In August, the Department of Defense established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to investigate and “gain insight” into the “nature and origins” of unidentified flying objects. Earlier that year, the Department of Defense declassified three videos taken by Navy pilots — one from 2004 and two from 2015 — that showed mysterious objects flying at high speeds across the sky.
“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified,’” Pentagon officials said in a statement at the time.
The three videos had leaked years earlier, but Pentagon officials said they declassified the footage to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”
A separate leaked Navy video, captured in July 2019, showed a sphere-shaped unidentified object flying over water near San Diego. The footage, obtained by a documentary filmmaker and shared with NBC News, appeared to show the mysterious object flying for a few minutes before disappearing into the water.
And on Sunday, two former Navy pilots were interviewed by “60 Minutes” on CBS News about a UFO sighting over the Pacific Ocean in 2004. Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich spotted the unidentified object during a training exercise but were unable to classify it. Fravor described it as a “little white Tic-Tac-looking object,” adding that it lacked conventional exhaust plumes and had no wings or visible markings.
It also moved erratically, the pilots said.
In an interview with NBC News that aired in February, Fravor described the 2004 encounter, calling the object “the strangest, most obscure thing I’ve ever seen flying.”
“As soon as we looked down, we see the whitewater, and then we see this little white Tic Tac,” Fravor told NBC’s “The Overview.” “It’s pointing north-south and it’s just going forward, back, left, right,” he said, adding that it was bouncing around “like a ping-pong ball.”
Fravor said he approached the mysterious object to take a closer look, and it began mirroring his movements. When the pilot got to within a half-mile of the UFO, it suddenly vanished, he said. In 2019, the Navy put together new guidelines for pilots to report “unidentified aircraft,” in a bid to formalize a process to investigate these types of mysterious sightings. The updated guidance came as a response to “a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” Navy officials told Politico in a statement at the time.
Seeing a giant triangular object just above my head on November 26, 2003. That’s the day the United States invaded Iraq. After the fall of Iraq, when Saddam had been hiding in a mouse hole for some time, I saw that triangle at about 8:00 pm, I stood in the middle of the yard and looked at the sky. I said how they saw the moon two nights ago when it is still impossible to see the moon. The sky was completely dark and foggy and no light could be seen. After a few minutes, I noticed the movement of an object moving in the dark sky. The more I noticed, the triangular shape was very, very giant. From my guess, each side of the triangle was more than 100 meters, but the back side looked a little smaller. Its height seemed very low, for example about 150 to 300 meters above the ground. Its speed was about 30 kilometers per hour, or the speed of a bicycle. It was completely silent and completely black and the same color as the sky. Maybe he had made that object in the sky for more camouflage. His height did not go up or down at all. His speed was exactly the same speed and in no way increased or decreased. Its direction was on a perfectly straight line, exactly from south to north, and it could not be left or right at all. I wanted to take a photo with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone, but that phone was useless and nothing could be seen inside the photo. I called my brothers, but no one heard Saddam because it was almost cold and the windows were closed and they were watching satellite programs almost loudly. It took about 10 minutes for the object to reach me from south to north and move just above my head. If I turned my head and looked at it again, I could hardly find it, and from its speed and direction, I could tell where the sky is now, and I would look at it and find it again. In my opinion, that triangular object can be a UFO nest so that it can hold dozens of UFOs. (Like warships with dozens of planes on them) and I can say that I have seen the mother ship of the UFOs. Now the question is: That giant object due to its very low speed but much larger than the football field and its not going up and down and that it was completely soundless and without light; There were no satellites, planes, spy planes, helicopters or balloons. We all know that it did not look like man-made technology. And I don’t think it could be detected by human radar. That is, completely hidden from the radar. And what happened that night? So far I have not written these two events so accurately anywhere. And I’m going to send a copy of this post to Mufon in the United States. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
Observed a large black triangle-shaped object hovering over the Pee Dee River in close proximity to the electrical Dam. I observed the object hovering, then began slowly drifting to the West eventually overflying my position continuing in a western trajectory. When the craft overflew my position, I estimated it to be an extremely large craft estimate size of 300 ft. I and my cousin both observed an unusually bright light that appeared to be hovering over the dam near the Pee Dee River. My cousin asked me what did I think it was? I told him that it was probably an airplane heading in our direction which made it appear to be hovering. Then we both noticed that the object appeared to be stationary in the air. I then told him that it was probably a helicopter in a hover over the dam. We proceeded traveling East on Hwy 73. The closer I got the object, it appeared to something other than a helicopter. That part of Hwy 73 East is in a very rural, quiet area, If the object we were observing were a helicopter, we should have been close enough to hear noise from rotor wash…yet we heard nothing. I being a person of logic, then attributed the craft to be a blimp of some sort, but couldn’t find a reason for a blimp to be hovering over the dam. At that time I decided to pull over to satisfy my curiosity and to try to determine what it was that we were observing. As soon as I pulled over, the bright light at the front of the object went out. It was obvious to me that we had been spotted by a person or something inside of the object; I was of the opinion that the occupants of the object were deliberately trying to hide from us. When I exited my car, I saw the dark underbelly of the object. it was huge. I could tell due to it blocking out the stars above. I vaguely recall other people who pulled over to observe it too. The funny thing is that I do not recall talking to them about what we all saw. I do not have any recall of what happed the rest of that night. I am somewhat afraid to find out, but I feel that it must be done. Can you help me to find out? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Miguel [last name withheld] while doing his regular exercises and stargazing in his backyard, reported seeing a boomerang traveling from the northeast (generally over the greater Los Angeles region) to the southwest (generally over the Pacific Ocean toward Santa Catalina Island). According to Miguel’s CMS report, the boomerang was over 300 feet in size, had a dark surface, white exterior lights, no emissions and no sound. It maintained a constant speed and elevation, had “fuzzy edges”, and a “mist or shroud” about it. There were no colored running lights on the extreme ends of the boomerang. He saw a helicopter in the area after the object flew past. Miguel attached the artist’s impression of a boomerang shown below to illustrate what he saw. It was at a distance of more than one mile.
His description of the incident follows: “While doing my exercise in my backyard, I paused to look at the sky for Orion’s belt and other stars. I then looked northeast to see a boomerang-shaped craft about the size of two football fields, side-by-side. I thought it was too wide to be a military plane (and those make a ton of noise). I could not see a fuselage or red and/or blue [green?] lights at the ‘wing’ tips. The white lights it had remained constant. The outline towards the back was dim even before going off in the distance. The craft’s speed was consistent (did not speed up or slow down). I will attach an artist’s rendition of what I saw.”
Ufologists are at a loss: in the sky over El Paso, Texas, a driver recorded what appears to be a glowing triangular-shaped UFO. The object was moving completely silently.
The video shows the object flying at high speed by a mysterious “glowing triangle”, and surprised not only is this unique form, but also its bright backlight. In addition, the UFO moved soundlessly, that is, he could be mistaken for extraterrestrial aircraft.
Although there are many reports of triangle-shaped craft, they are rarely captured on any type of media. American researchers of extraterrestrial civilizations and the aliens are surprised by the capture of this type of flying craft.
Every year the aliens appear on the planet more often and are manifested more and more in an amazing way – what could it be?… Some observers carefully analyzed the material and verified its authenticity. Webmaster B J Booth of the UFO Casebook did note that it was unusual that the car seemed to pace the UFO so well.
Videographer statement on UFO
Driving to work and noticed a strange light in a triangular shape toward the horizon. Took my cell phone and took pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy s8.
I was on my way to work the morning of August 31, 2018 at 6:25 in the morning. I stared at the sunrise as usual because I have to stop a red light, right before I get on the freeway to work.
After a few minutes I glanced to the right and saw a glowing triangle and thought it was weird. So I took several pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy S8.
It’s still new to me and noticed afterwards that the phone does an amazing thing automatically… it stabilized the video on its own. Yes, I did zoom in on the object and luckily it worked perfectly. Even if it’s explainable, it is an interesting video. pictures.
Although Arrowhead UFOs are not the most common of UFO shapes sighted, this sighting was even more unusual because of its duration. The craft was seen by the entire crew of the Oil Tanker “British Grenadier” for exactly 3 days!
The event occurred around April/May 1969 while the “British Grenadier” was sailing through the Gulf of Mexico. The UFO appeared directly above the ship at exactly noon on the first day. It just seemed to appear as nobody saw it arrive and it remained above the ship for the next 3 days.
According to reports the craft was approximately 1 mile above the ship and dark blue in colour during the day. At night it appeared as a silvery light. The weather conditions were good at the time, with a clear sky and calm seas.
On the first day of its arrival (one minute after midnight), the ships engines suddenly stopped and only emergency lighting and steering were available. The crew managed to restart the engines, which took some time as all the pumps had to be shut down and restarted manually.
The second day saw all the food storage refridgerators closed down and no reason for this event could be found.
On the third day at 11.45 pm one of the crew noticed that the lights were out in the ships air conditioning room and a door leading to the crews accomodation was opened. The engineer passed through the door to investigate and spoke to two firemen. But the next day the same door was found welded shut! Apparently, the door had been welded before the ship left dock (because of a fault), but the door was definitely open for the engineer to have walked through it.
A few minutes after this event the engines stopped again, leaving just emergency lighting and steering (again one minute after midnight!). They were restarted once more, but later it was discovered that the starter motor for the emergency diesel generator had been dismantled. All the parts of the generator were neatly placed by the machine as if someone had examined it.
At exactly noon on the third day the craft vanished in the same manner as it had appeared.
Although all these events were recorded in the ships log, this is the first time (to our knowledge) that this event has been published. We would be interested in hearing from any of the crew that were aboard the BP Oil Tanker “British Grenadier” at this time, in order to obtain more information about this sighting. If you were there and would like to write to us, please send an email to: Grenadier@profindpages.com source: NOTE: The above image is CGI.
CIRCA AUGUST 1970……..SMITHERS BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA
I was in the back area of the property looking for my horse to go riding that day. Normally my horse along with the others would have been there but for some reason they were spooked and up in the woods on the hillside. I never clued in that something might be wrong. I was on my way back along the fence towards the house when I just stopped in my tracks. I had this feeling that I should look up and that’s when I saw that craft above my head. The air was still. I never heard a sound coming from it. It was just in the air and was not moving. I don’t know how long it was up there before I noticed it but after about 30 seconds it just took off into thin air. I had a clear shot of the whole sky in the valley and I tell you it just vanished within a couple of seconds – without a sound.
The following is the outlay of the ranch where the encounter occurred. Most of our property was located on a hillside (to the left) which cannot be seen on the following diagram.
For days afterwards I drew a stick diagram of the body and how the wings were. I knew there was something odd about those wings facing the wrong way. I never associated it to a UFO for many many years because UFOs were suppose to be flying saucers, or at least that’s what I was lead to believe. The first thing I thought, after my mind went blank staring at that thing in awe, was that it was military. Perhaps because it was black, who knows. But it wasn’t right and was completely out of place. Not to mention hovering over my head. I also began drawing a strange diagram. I spent days working at it to get it right. The teardrops had to be very very dark with a slight shine to it. The original was very elaborate but I lost it over the years while moving around so much. Today I just attempted to recreate how it generally looked. The whole time a word kept popping into my head as I was working on it. Satus. I just felt it had something to do with this diagram and so I wrote the word with it. I felt so strongly that this diagram was important and that it had meaning. Who knows.
It wasn’t long after my encounter with the craft that I ended up back in that end of the property again. This time to bury my cat who had suddenly just up and died for no reason. I remember he had blood coming out of his nose. I loved him so much I wanted to bury him near a tree which had a hollow in it. I loved that spot for some reason. Felt special to me. The horses were back there eating grass and hanging out like they do. I laid my cat down in a deep hole I dug and then covered him up. I knew if I didn’t protect him the coyotes would get to him so I went to search for some big rocks to cover his burial spot. I found a couple went and laid them near the burial and then went in search of some more. I remember feeling like I was being followed so I stopped and turned around. A young filly was the closest to me, however she was eating grass and looking away so I figured I was imagining things so I continued searching for big rocks. Again I felt like I was being followed. The young filly was even closer but she was eating and ignoring me. I turned back around and continued my search. This time I knew for sure something was behind me. I wheeled around in time to see the filly rear up. She towered over my head. That’s when I realised she was going to strike me. I looked down in time otherwise she would have broken my face. Instead she struck the top of my head.
I collapsed to the ground thinking she broke my neck. I screamed blue murder. I just knew she would attack me again if I didn’t get out of there so I crawled to a windrow nearby. My folks heard the scream back at the house and came running. They thought I was being mauled by a bear. My face and long hair was covered with blood from the gash on top my head. To this day we do not know why the horse attacked me. Our horses were good and had never done that before. And it never happened again. The attack occurred close to where I had seen that strange craft. To this day I have not come across anyone having had a similar sighting. I’m still waiting to hear from anyone who has.

Hi Ken : I had gone to Teignmouth to photograph the Queen Mary 2 luxury cruise ship that was anchored just offshore there. I had found myself a nice place to sit down on the beach that was just opposite the ship. I had such a great vantage point from this position and I had just begun to take photographs with my Nikon P900 camera when a black unidentified object flew directly over the top of the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship and headed off towards Exmouth where I lost sight of it. I captured the unidentified object in two photographs. I looked around for a while to see if there were any other strange objects in the area but there was not. Now this is very strange as back on the 7th of July I captured an unidentified object right above the carnival magic cruise ship that was anchored near this area at hopes nose. I now believe that these objects are purposely following me around to all the places I visit. Furthermore it would seem that this phenomena is aware of where I am pointing my camera and is purposely flying in to frame where I can capture them in a photograph. This could be there way of disclosing their presents to mankind. We are definitely not a alone. The photographs were taken at 5:47 PM on the 8th of September 2020, at Teignmouth Devon England. All the Best John
SEPTEMBER 12, 2020 ………HOPES NOSE TORQUAY DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken hope your ok : I had gone to Hopes Nose to photograph the four cruise ships that were anchored just offshore there. I had been photographing the ships from different locations around the coast all week and I had captured some great shots of them. I had also captured many anomalous objects near the ships. One of these unidentified objects had flown directly over the top of the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship which I had managed to photograph. It was very strange. I had a great vantage point of the ships from where I was standing at Hopes Nose and I had just started to take photographs of two of the ships with my Nikon P900 Camera when I spotted an anomalous object near the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship just like before. Whatever the object was it seemed to be metallic in nature and the sun was reflecting off of the right side of it. The object flew down towards the ship and then stopped and hovered there for a couple of seconds before it just seemed to disappear into thin air. I was really stumped by this as it was far too large to be a drone and there was no sound at all. What the hell did I witness and where did it go? The photographs were taken at 5:10 PM on the 12th of September 2020, from Hopes Nose Torquay Devon England. All the best john.
SEPTEMBER 16, 2020 …….HOPES NOSE DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken : I went back to Hope’s Nose to take some more photographs of the three cruise ships that are anchored there just offshore but unfortunately the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship had left during the night and now only two cruise ships remain, Azura and Ventura which are owned by P & O cruises. I was using a different camera for a change and I really wanted to see if I could capture any more anomalous objects around the cruise ships using this particular camera. I focused my attention on the Ventura cruise ship and then started to take photographs when to my total surprise a black UFO flew down diagonally from the sky and entered into the sea. The UFO made no splash whatsoever as it made contact with the water nor was there any sound which was odd. This seems to be a common occurrence with these unidentified crafts whatever they are. This UFO was moving at a high rate of speed and I only managed to capture it in one photograph using the Nikon cool pix L26 camera as it is only single shot and does not have burst mode like my other cameras. The photograph shows the object just moments before it had past in front of the Ventura cruise ship and entered the water. The morons over at Devon Live news would of said that this object was a drone that could fly in and out of the water at Mach 3 with out making any splash or sound. That would be an amazing feat for a commercial drone. Where can I buy one like that. I have seen a real increase in UFO and USO activity around this area of Devon for some strange reason. It really is a great mystery as to why they are so prevalent around this area and especially why they seem to be so fascinated by these anchored cruise ships. I have captured these strange craft using three separate cameras now. A Nikon P900 a Sony HX-300 and Nikon coolpix L26 camera. This proves to me that it really doesn’t matter what type of camera you use to capture these strange anomalous objects. If you have the time to photograph this area you will capture these bizarre objects in your photographs. It really is quite fascinating and worthy of further investigation. The photograph was taken at 5:03 PM on the 16th of September 2020, at Hope’s Nose Devon England. All the best John.
KEN PFEIFER WORLD UFO PHOTOS AND NEWS
KENS NOTE: JOHN MOONER IS THE CHIEF INVESTIGATOR FOR MY WEB SITE WORLD UFO PHOTOS.ORG ….SEE JOHNS WEB SITE AT THE RIGHT OF THE ARTICLE.
Thirty-four years ago this month, at the height of a glorious 41-year run that ended in 1994, the former Loring Air Force Base, off to my northwest, was in an uproar about several close encounters of the weird kind.
On Oct. 27 and 28, 1975, unidentified aircraft that buzzed the base, taking particular interest in the weapons storage area of the Strategic Air Command installation, had the base on high-alert status.
With a reporter’s appreciation for the offbeat news story, I cannot help but think of the incident each time I drive through the East Gate entrance to the old base that now is a civilian commerce center.
The story, well-chronicled by former BDN Presque Isle Bureau Chief Dean Rhodes in articles archived in the newspaper’s morgue, also can be found on several Web sites. I Googled “Loring AFB UFO sightings” and found a bunch of them.
Shortly before 8 PM, on Oct. 27, an airman patrolling the Loring weapons dump area saw an unidentified aircraft nearing the north perimeter of the base at an altitude of about 300 feet, its red navigational light and a white strobe light in operation.
At the same time, the Loring control tower got a radar hit from an unknown aircraft 10 to 13 miles east-northeast of the base. Numerous attempts were made to contact the aircraft, but there was no response.
The circling aircraft, described as having “helicopter-like” characteristics, came within 300 yards of the base nuclear weapons area. Loring went into alert mode and an intense ground sweep was conducted by security personnel.
The intruder circled for about 40 minutes before heading toward Grand Falls, N.B., some 12 miles away, where it dropped from the radar screen.
The next night featured a repeat performance. This time, airmen reported seeing a silent orange-and-red object shaped like an elongated football hovering over the runway. It was described as being about four car lengths long, solid, with no doors or windows, and with no visible propellers or engines. It eventually departed in the direction of Grand Falls.
A Maine Army National Guard helicopter out of Bangor was deployed to Loring to assist in the hunt for the interloper. Several years later, UFO investigators Larry Fawcett and Barry Greenwood interviewed witnesses, including CWO Bernard Poulin, a helicopter crew member.
Poulin said radar “was not painting the object that was being reported” by ground troops who had directed his chopper to locations where they were seeing the unauthorized aircraft. Observers aboard the helicopter never could spot the intruder.
Questions and speculation abound to this day. Was it an unannounced test of base security by SAC headquarters? A probe by an unfriendly force? Or (cue the ominous background music) was it a bona fide Unidentified Flying Object of the extraterrestrial upper-case kind, rather than a more earthly unidentified flying object, lower-case version?
Three decades after the event and 15 years after Loring was shuttered, is the incident still considered by the government to be too hot for the public to handle? If so, why?
On the Web site www.rense.com, the son of a former security policeman on duty at the weapons storage area the night of the first sighting wrote that his father, mesmerized, had been watching the hovering aircraft as 42nd Bomb Wing commander, Col. Robert E. Chapman, arrived on the scene.
“He asked my father what the hell was going on, and why he hadn’t called this in to the tower,” the son wrote. “My father’s response was that he had called the tower and they had told him he was full of [bleep], and they wouldn’t [alert] the wing commander because, as they saw it, there was nothing there.”
The colonel contacted the tower and asked the noncommissioned officer on duty to verify the light that the colonel was seeing. The NCO insisted he could see nothing out of the ordinary.
The commander then reportedly told the man, “If the eagle on my shoulder sees that light, then those stripes on your damned sleeve better see it, as well.”
The tower guy quickly replied that he could now clearly see the light.
The answer, authentic or not, endures. So, too, the questions.
Note: Loring Air Force Base (AFB) was a United States Air Force base in the town of Limestone, Aroostook County, in the state of Maine. Loring AFB was the largest base of the United States Air Force’s Strategic Air Command during its existence, until it was transferred to the newly-created Air Combat Command in 1992.
