MUFON INVESTIGATOR AND WIFE SPOTS TRIANGLE OVER SOUTH NEW JERSEY
AUGUST 14, 2007 ………… FRANKLINVILLE NEW JERSEY
Around 7 pm, I was laying on my back deck, after getting out of the pool and was watching the planes fly over, on their way to Philadelphia International Airport. . I then noticed a glimmering object to the left of the plane flying over. I would guess the commercial jet was at 7000 feet because this is the altitude that passing planes can fly over terminal control areas especially Philly International. The plane and UFO was flying in and out of the haze and traveling in a North West direction. I yelled to my wife to bring me my spotter telescope and she did in a few moments. Kelly also saw the object and I told he not to take her eyes off of it because I had to quickly set up my scope on the tripod. My scope is a BSA 20-60x60mm. Its great for star gazing and looking at the moon. I looked through the scope before I set it up trying to hold it as still as possible and did see it again for a couple seconds. It looked like a very shiny triangle and the sun bouncing off it made it even more visible. I try to spot UFO when the sun is setting because for some reason the sun light at that flat angle illuminated everything. After loosing sight of it with the telescope we did see it again with our eyes but it quickly disappeared in the overcast. Being excited, we both jumper in the car and drove for 10 miles trying to acquire it again but did not. I have had a few sightings in the Franklinville area over the years. We are very rural with little light pollution for star gazing. I did report this to MUFON and finally classified this case as unknown. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
