According to media reports A glowing round object making a speedy descent near the West Bengal-Bihar border early on January 26 left pilots of five aircraft baffled, triggering widespread speculation about a UFO. The first person to sight the object was a senior Air India pilot who was navigating the aircraft at a height of 34,000 ft during its flight from Kolkata to New Delhi. “The plane was just entering the airspace of Gaya, close to Bengal-Bihar border, when I first noticed the glowing object, below the aircraft, hurtling down at a very high speed,” Captain Rishi was quoted as saying by the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower here at Dum Dum International Airport. The Air India pilot initially didn’t pay much attention as it is customary for the pilots to notice several such things midair. But when the aircraft was close to Varanasi, the object was still brightly visible. Without wasting time, he informed the Varanasi Air Traffic Control from where ATC, Kolkata, was alerted. The officials at ATC pondered over whether pilots of other international flights that might have crossed the Kolkata-Bihar-Varanasi route, had also observed the glowing object reported by Capt Rishi. Accordingly, the ATC, Kolkata, beamed asking signals for other international flights that flew the same airspace during the period concerned. To their utter surprise, the air traffic control officials were told by as many as four foreign airlines flight pilots that they had seen the same object and all of them reiterated that it was falling down at a great speed! Fin Air of Finland and Novou Air of Sweden were flying from the West to East while a couple of flights of Cathay Pacific and Dynasty Airways of China were moving in the opposite direction at an altitude between 34,000 and 37,000 ft over the airspace supposed to be in the trajectory of the object. Once the foreign airlines pilots radioed back the ATC tower here, confirming their sighting of the object, ATC engineers immediately got in touch with the Indian Air Force. However, the IAF engineers pointed out that their powerful radar had failed to track or notice any unusual object. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
It was around 3 or 4 a.m. when I left my cousins house. I live right down the road from her so I walk home very late feeling quite safe most times. I was walking in the street when I approached my house so I cross to the sidewalk and at this point I have full view of my backyard which is always pitch black. I live on the edge of a small forest. Neighbors aren’t very close and I have nothing in my backyard except trees. Occasionally deer will wander there but they are dark brown and can clearly see them at night and what they look like. As I was saying, when I crossed to the sidewalk I was around 30-40 feet from my front door. Usually I cross the lawn, walk up the steps, go in. I reach the side walk and I see something white in the backyard. It was probably 100 ft away. I stopped on the sidewalk to look more intently. It didn’t appear to be touching the ground and it was bright enough for me to notice. We have no animals in the neighborhood that are white. Ive never witnessed this before and I knew it wasn’t an animal. What I saw in my backyard was round and bright and didn’t appear to be touching the ground. This of course petrified me and I started walking faster to my lawn, as I moved the object seemed to move as well. I only stared at it for a total of 4-5 seconds before I wanted to get inside. It did appear to move slightly towards my direction but only when I started walking again did it move more swiftly. I’d say it moved at 6 ft per second. I got inside my house and quickly turned all the lights on. I have to say I wasn’t brave enough to look outside again. I felt I may have been confronted by it. I also want to add I know that I do not have any evidence towards my story and that it is just my word and first hand encounter but I have not seen the white object since. P.S. I was on no substance that would hinder my perceptions and I was not tired because I had slept that day till 6pm. I feel very confident that this was some sort of “alien” because I’ve had multiple inexplicable things that have happened to me. None included an encounter with something like this but I’ve been uneasy since these things have started. Hopefully I am not alone in my area and it will be looked into in some way. It’s comforting to know I am not alone though. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
The following article appeared in the Nov. 4, 1973, edition of the Mansfield News Journal. It was written by a United Press International reporter. This case stands out as one of the most credible UFO incidents of all time, there were multiple witnesses on the ground in in the helicopter itself, all of unimpeachable character. It has been endlessly investigated and determined to be a real. — Army Reserve helicopter pilot Capt. Lawrence Coyne is a military commander who doesn’t believe in unidentified flying objects (UFOs) or little green spacemen. But after a near miss two weeks ago between his helicopter and a “big, gray, metallic-looking” object in the sky over Mansfield, he doesn’t know what to think. “I had to file an official report in detail to the Army on this thing,” he said. “Coyne is a member of the 316th Medical Detachment stationed at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. He was returning from Columbus at 11:10 p.m., Oct. 18, when the UFO showed up near where the Air National Guard has a squadron of jet fighters based. He said a check turned up that none of the unit’s F-100 Super Saber Jets were in the air when the UFO appeared. Coyne said when he first encountered the UFO, his helicopter was cruising at 2,500 feet. He had the controls set for a 20-degree dive, but the craft climbed to 3,500 feet with no power. “I had made no attempt to pull up,” he said. “There was no noise or turbulence, either.” Coyne said a red light appeared on the eastern horizon, and was first spotted by his crew chief, Sgt. Robert Yanacsek. “The light was traveling in excess of 600 knots,” Coyne said. “It came from the horizon to our aircraft in about 10 seconds. We were on a collision course.” The pilot said he put his helicopter into a dive. “At 1,700 feet I braced myself for the impact with the other craft,” he said. “It was coming from our right side. I was scared. There had been so little time to respond. The thing was terrifically fast.” There was no crash. “We looked up and saw it stopped right over us,” Coyne said. “It had a big, gray metallic-looking hull about 60 feet long.” “It was shaped like an airfoil or a streamlined fat cigar. There was a red light on the front. The leading edge glowed red a short distance back from the nose. There was a center dome. A green light at the rear reflected on the hull.” Coyne said the green light swiveled like a spotlight and beamed through the canopy of his craft, bathing the cabin in green light. He said as he and members of the crew stared at the craft his helicopter began to climb without his guidance. “I had made no attempt to pull up,” he said. “All controls were set for a 20-degree dive. Yet we had climbed from 1,700 to 3,500 feet with no power in a couple of seconds with no g-forces or other noticeable strains.” Coyne said the UFO finally moved off to the west and was gone.

STRANGE UFO OBJECT WITNESSED IN WOORBRIDGE NEW JERSEY
AUGUST 26, 2014 …………WOODBRIDGE NEW JERSEY
Pulsing multi colored object seen flying in from north/west and flew over Rt 1. It hovered a short time then shot off to the North. Here’s a sighting at approx 9:03 pm in Woodbridge NJ near the crossing of Rt 1 and St Georges Ave. After shopping from local Shoprite, attention was drawn to the north west sky of a low slow moving light that was changing colors in sequence, not strobing but steady pulses of red , blue, green and then it would repeat itself. At first thought it was a helicopter but when it hovered made a complete tight circle and then shot off to the north turning a solid green. My ground location was aprox ½ mile south of object. I attempted to stop a few cars to confirm sighting. The OBJECT was totally silent. No motor noise. Object was low about 30 degrees off horizon. It could be covered with my thumb if held at arms length. Object first appeared from NW and flew east a short time, hovered over a new convenience store/gas station on Rt 1 North, then it made a tight circle then dove down and turned a dull green and flew to north. Sequence was red, blue and green repeated many times with vibrant colors. I did take a few grab shots of the event with a digital camera and a short vid. It shows a cylinder shaped object ( when zoomed in on computer )and the video shows a blinking fuzzy dot moving north pulsing RBG colors. Event lasted approx 3 min from 9:03 to 9:06 pm. It was warm and clear about 75 degrees with good visibility. The object was about 500 ft in height and moved in controlled manner, but the colors were so pure clear and grouped and vibrant for it to be nav lights on a plane or chopper. It looked like halogen Christmas lights. NOTE: This craft appears to mimic the Colonia, NJ (WOODBRIDGE Township ) sighting of same date and time, reported in site my location was approx 2 miles south of that reported event . Object’s flight path was well below the approach pattern of Newark airport. If it was either, they are flying in a heavily congested airspace with planes on approach to Newark Air port.

This case is under investigation by Field Investigator Joe DiRienzo of MUFON New Jersey.
STRANGE ORBS WITNESSED FROM AN AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT
DECEMBER 3, 2012 ………… FLIGHT TO TUSCON ARIZONA
A pilot who was an American Airlines passenger (deadheading crew) about 8:30 p.m. on November 29, 2012, reported watching “multiple objects emitting amber light” as the aircraft was at or below 18,000 feet, according to testimony from the (MUFON) witness reporting database. The witness was on Flight 1379 from Dallas to Tucson and was “looking out over the right wing of the plane” on a clear, moonlit night, when the objects were first seen. “While the aircraft was descending approximately 60 miles east of Tucson, approximately at or below 18,000 feet, I observed several light objects in the sky,” the witness stated. “The location was approximately Mount Graham near Safford, AZ).” The witness first thought the light was from another plane. “I first noticed the brightly lit object when it was joined by a second object same size and color light. I first thought it was a plane turning in the sky and was very curious because of the proximity of the second object, then one of the lights turned off and then on again and that is when I knew this was strange.” The witness then noticed more lights in the sky. “Almost immediately a third, fourth, fifth and sixth light appeared in the sky, not all in a straight line, but somewhat aligned horizontally.
I would estimate within a mile separation of each other end to end.” The witness explains his background. “I am a pilot and engineer. I have much experience identifying aircraft at night. This was absolutely not an aircraft light or flares dropped by military planes. In fact, the amber colored objects did not appear to move and were higher than our plane. I know this because they were well above the horizon, higher in the sky. I would estimate above 20,000 feet.” The lights appeared to be hovering in place. “The objects were not moving, but turning on and off in short duration like someone flipped a switch. I only saw all six lights on at the same time once, after that it was down to two or three, then only one on and off with a five to 15 second duration over a period of three or four minutes. I was able to call attention to the person sitting next to me and that person also saw the last one illuminate and disappear in the sky over the wing.” No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on November 30, 2012. The above quotes were edited for clarity. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
It was October and it had been an unseasonably humid night. Deborah awoke in the early morning in her college dormitory room. As she woke up she was aware of the local milk truck making noise in the alley below. She had washed her hair the night before; with the high humidity her hair was still damp. She decided to open the window to get some fresh air moving in the dorm room. She drew back the curtains and opened the window wide. “It was then that I looked up into the sky and saw a hovering saucer shaped object. I was surprised and then became very scared as I was alone in the room. I thought I might have been dreaming so pinched myself.” Deborah quickly walked around the room and grabbed her camera and began snapping pictures of the hovering disk shaped object. She tells us that because she was so excited and in a state of awe she didn’t notice that the camera was out of film. “I felt privileged to be a witness to the sight of this craft.” Deborah says that she had always thought people who believed in this type of thing were foolish. “All these thoughts crowded my head. I felt like going next door and waking up the girl who lived there, and telling her to look out the window. But I was afraid to even go into the hallway.” So Deborah just quietly watched the object that was hovering over the city. “The saucer was highly luminescent or polished, a silvery color. It had an illuminated quality, but I never saw any lights. When the hovering saucer left, it took off at a fantastic speed.” She says she observed what appeared to be sparkling dust slowly sifting down after the hovering saucer left. “I remember thinking how beautiful it looked. To be honest I have struggled to believe it was from a different planet.” Deborah tells us that there was never a report in the local newspapers about it. “… my friends, the ones I told, were very skeptical. Still, I didn’t tell everyone as I didn’t want to be known for seeing it; and I didn’t want to be mocked or made fun of.” Reflecting back, Deborah says she was glad for the whole experience.

POLICE OFFICERS UFO ENCOUNTER WITH A TRIANGLE OVER ILLINOIS
JANUARY 5, 2000 …………… ST CLAIR COUNTY ILLINOIS
On Wednesday, January 05, 2000, the National UFO Reporting Center received two telephone messages (at 0316 and 0351 hrs. Pacific Standard Time) from Officer Thomas “Ed” Barton, employed by the Lebanon, IL, Police Department. The messages apprised our Center that a UFO sighting had occurred in St. Clair County, Illinois, and in surrounding areas, at approximately 0410 hrs. (Central) earlier that morning. Later the same morning, we were able to talk to Officer Barton, who reported to us the following: At approximately 0410 hrs. (Central) on that morning, he overheard an announcement by the St. Clair (IL) Emergency Dispatch operator that a citizen had entered the Highland, IL, police station, and requested that an officer go outside and view a very peculiar object that was hovering nearby in the sky. The citizen had witnessed the bizarre looking object on his way to work, and he apparently refused to leave the station until a police officer had viewed the object with him. Having heard the announcement about the incident over his radio, Officer Barton looked to the southeast from his location in Lebanon, and noticed two extremely bright white lights suspended in the sky, close to the horizon. The two lights were radiating so much light that the spectacle reminded Officer Barton of the Japanese “Rising Sun” symbol, used on the Japanese battle flag. A very short period of time later, the two large lights appeared to merge into one, and the illumination the object was radiating appeared to increase dramatically. Officer Barton began driving south and east in attempt to approach the object. He turned his overhead flashers on, and at times was driving at 75-80 m.p.h. toward the object, which was still generally to the southeast of his position. After a short period of time, Officer Barton realized that the object appeared to be traveling toward him. He stopped his vehicle, extinguished his overhead flashers, and rolled down the window on the passenger side of his vehicle. The object approached his location, and passed overhead at an estimated altitude of 1,000 to 1,500 feet, and within an estimated 100 feet lateral distance of his position on the ground. It was headed generally to the west, or northwest, at this time. The object was distinctly triangular in shape, with three white lights on the apices of the triangle, and it exhibited a “galaxy” of peculiar lights on its aft end, including white, hues of red or pink, and perhaps other colors, as well. After passing overhead Officer Barton, the object suddenly turned to its left, without either banking or yawing apparently, it suddenly accelerated quite dramatically, and seemed to “streak” to the west, covering approximately 8 miles, the officer estimated, in approximately 3 seconds.
(Note: Officer Barton, in multiple telephone conversations with our organization, and during at least one radio broadcast, has emphasized how almost unbelievably quickly the object accelerated and moved a considerable distance to the southwest in just a few seconds. Its velocity was almost unimaginable, he reports. This is one aspect of the case that strongly suggest to us that the object almost certainly was not of human manufacture.)
He radioed St. Clair County Emergency Dispatch, apprising them that he had the object in sight, and advising them as to the direction it had moved, generally to the southwest. He recommended that dispatch contact units to the south and west of his position, e.g. Shiloh, Millstadt and Dupo, to have the officers there attempt to spot the object from their vantage points. Apparently at least one officer from Shiloh, IL, witnessed the object next, and two other officers, who have not come forward and who apparently do not wish to be identified, witnessed the object while they were standing in the cemetery of their town, as well. An officer from the Millstadt Police Department, Officer Craig Stevens, with whom NUFORC also spoke, overheard the broadcast, and moved his cruiser to a dark part of that town to see if he could spot the object in the night sky. He quickly spotted the object to the west of his location, at approximately 45 degrees above the horizontal plane, and gauged its size as “huge.” He estimated that it was “one or two stories” tall, and perhaps three stories long.” It had several very bright lights on it. St. Clair Dispatch requested that someone, if possible, attempt to get a photograph of the object. In response to that request, Officer Stevens removed polaroid-type camera stored in the trunk of his cruiser and quickly photographed the object. Because the outside temperature was low, approximately 18-20 degrees (F), neither the camera, nor the film functioned well, so the resolution of the photograph is not good. After Officer Stevens had taken the photograph, the object appeared to move further to the west, moving toward Dupo, IL, Cahokia, IL, and St. Louis, MO. A Dupo police officer may have witnessed the object at that time. In the final analysis, the police departments and communities involved in the incident include the following: Highland, Summerfield, Lebanon, Shiloh, Mascoutah, Millstadt, Dupo, and Cahokia, Illinois. The object was observed by officers from at least the following communities (in chronological sequence): Lebanon, Shiloh, Millstadt, Dupo, and Cahokia. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
FIELD INVESTIGATOR SPOTS TRIANGLE UFO IN NEW YORK STATE
MARCH 2015 ……… SOUTH WEST NEW YORK STATE
The winter in New York’s south-western region was particularly hostile this year. The brutal negative temperatures brought its inhabitants to a screeching halt. I spent very little time outside this season. So my sighting was completely by chance, and at the time I giggled to myself as I saw something that I have studied and assessed for some time, never planning to see one of my own. It certainly brought every witness statement I have ever been lucky enough to read and work full circle to me. Immediately, all of the statements I read daily it like a glove. It was interesting for sure. It was mid-March 2015, frigid, cold and horrible night. I was on a late night phone call to a dear friend of mine making plans for her birthday weekend at the end of April. Being a smoker, I constantly associate the phone with a hot cup of coffee and a cigarette but being a mother, I do not smoke in my home, so I was forced to face the elements to do so. Shivering with the phone on my shoulder, and cigarette in hand, my head was angled and as we spoke to one another I gazed at the beautiful starry sky. My family and I live on a quiet mountain top; no street lights, no noise and the most beautiful sky you can imagine. Being a Field Investigator for the State of New York, I am constantly looking about for a peek of the unknown. The skies remained quiet and beautiful. But this night ended a little differently. As we spoke, to my disbelief, an object caught my eye gliding smoothly across the sky. I would estimate its altitude at approximately 1,000 feet. My guess of size would range from 100 to 150 feet across. This was a black triangle. From the distance, I cannot see any distinct features about this unknown, but I can tell you this was no plane- civilian or military. This triangle glided so smoothly across the sky and was completely silent. At all three points, there were white lights, and in the center, a larger red light. The sky was beautiful that night, cloud cover was sparse, with only a few in my line of sight. I watched this triangle glide behind a small cloud. It never came out the other side. It simply vanished. I finished my phone call quickly and hopped into my Jeep and drove to a nearby peak to see if I could see anything. The night was silent and still, and my beautiful triangle, one that I have researched so many times, was gone, just like that. It is almost humorous to me that I was able to see this, even for the few seconds that it glided through my existence. Triangle Unknowns have always been an interest of mine in this amazing field I have studied many in my humble research. You never think, after years of looking, that while on the phone shivering, talking about birthdays, that you will luckily be able to look up and see something so amazing. I am elated to have viewed such a mystery, only adding fuel to the fire of my constant thirst for information NOTE: The above image is a rendering
Mars anomaly hunters have discovered a giant UFO flying saucer abandoned on rugged Mars terrain. The latest UFO find on the Red Planet was reported on March 27 by two YouTube anomaly hunters, Mars Moon Space Photo Zoom Club (MMSPZC) and Paranormal Crucible. According to MMSPZC, the UFO flying saucer was discovered in images of the Martian region of Aram Chaos — 2.6°N, 21.5°W — near the canyon Valles Marineris and Ares Vallis. The images were captured by NASA’s Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC). MMSPZC points out that contrary to what some might think, the structure is not part of the natural Martian terrain, but an object of artificial construction probably abandoned on the surface after it developed a fault and crashed. UFO Sightings Daily’s Scott Waring notes, close examination of the object suggests a metallic luster that is in sharp contrast with the Martian soil in which it appears partially embedded. The saucer also has a distinct curved or circular shape with sharp edges indicative of artificial construction. The sharp edges and circular geometric design stand out against the background of the natural environment. Note also the rectangular spaces in front of the disk suggestive of artificially constructed lookout screens or windows. According to MMSPZC, the flying saucer is a detail of a section of the Martian terrain, 23 km tall and about 3 km wide. The UFO hunters thus estimate the flying saucer to be about 200-300 meters in diameter.
Going by the claims of Mars anomaly and UFO hunters, we may speculate on why such a massive UFO was abandoned on the Martian surface. Judging from the luster of the metallic surface, it does not look like it has been there for very long. We may thus imagine a scenario in which recent alien visitors were forced to abandon the spacecraft after it developed a mechanical or electrical fault. The crew of the ship might have put out an SOS after they were stranded on the planet, and a rescue craft was probably dispatched to evacuate them while the ship was left behind as non-salvageable. This is not the first time that a UFO flying saucer has been found apparently abandoned on the Martian surface. In February, the Inquisitr reported discovery of a UFO flying saucer by Mars anomaly hunters. The UFO was discovered by Mars researcher Neville Thompson in the Candor Chasma region of Mars. The discovery was reported by anomaly hunters Martian Archaeology. MMSPZC concludes that what we have in this Mars Orbiter Camera image is evidently a massive UFO flying saucer.
AIR FORCE C-5 GALAXY SHADOWED BY UFO CRAFT OVER LOUISIANA
MARCH 4, 2015 …….. PINEVILLE LOUISIANA
Shape: Light – Duration: 2-3 minutes
Bright white light traveling beside a military transport. On this afternoon, me and youngest daughter, aged 11, were watching the clouds and sunset as we normally do. During this, I observed a C5a Galaxy military aircraft flying east to west; I observed this aircraft with binoculars for ID. I commented how big the contrail was and my daughter thought it was very cool. After it passed overhead, it turned to the northwest from my 12 o’clock position, I handed the binoculars to my daughter to watch it. She then stated that there was something beside the plane, I asked flying beside or was it in different travel path. She said no it was beside the aircraft, I asked if it was another plane and she stated she didn’t see any wings on it that it looked like a light. She then handed the binoculars to back to me. I observed the light and it was white in color, when I saw it, it was no longer beside but had dropped back behind the C5. It was at this point the light began a westward track and seemed very slow. I observed no wings or tail. The object was not flashing but a steady white light color. I asked my daughter if she could see it without the binoculars and she stated no. I looked without them and could not see it. It was only visible with the binoculars. I then handed them back to my daughter but she was unable to find it again. We saw several aircraft that night including a Fed-Ex plane (I’d by paint scheme with binoculars); all had contrails and were identifiable as winged aircraft. This was not. If I was to guess size, due to the distance I would be hesitant and guess near the size of the engines at the distance we saw. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
