I didn't see this posted, figured I'd share with the community.

lol. I see these all the time on the way to work off exit 60 over the gsp airport off exit 57 in greenville. They're called planes.

They don't look like any navigational lights I've ever seen.

A lot of them look exactly like the one in the picture.

I agree the configuration doesn't look right for a conventional aircraft. Any more info about exactly where this was? Presumably the red light visible is on top of a mast or something similar?

Im telling you. I drive past the airport in greenville every work day in the early, dark hours of the morning. I see the EXACT same lights that are in the picture. DEFINITELY an airplane.

I have to agree with you on this one. I live close to IAH. I see these every night. Airplane.

Have to agree with some other replies it's a plane. I see aircraft fly over of an even from London Stanstead airport. Especially fedex delivery flights. As for the formation of lights may look like a triangle because with have white lights on wing tips but also some aircraft have lights where the wing joins the fuselage

I can't get any frame of reference from those photos. Why is all the stuff in the foreground blurred while the "distant" triangle is crystal clear? And why is image 1 the same as image 2?

I can't really say that the pattern of white dots looks like it is in the distance, the sky, or even not an image artifact.

Is the photo taken behind some sort of window?

From inside a car?


these look like water drops on window,


The red objects seem like reflection of something inside.

Mufon report: mufoncms.com...

riding down hwy 29 out of greenville,looked up out of winsheild of car and saw this triangle like object floating in the air.took picture while driving ,busy hwy with no place to pull over.there is a air force testing and repair in greenville called donaldson center.figure this is where it came from.


Google maps coordinates on a site matching descriptions on report 34.795695 , -82.384557
Highway 29, just north of donaldson center, and south of Greenville Downtown airport.

Out of a moving car, airplanes can definitely look like they are standing still.

Just pretend for a moment that I am not a professional digital photographer and explain how it answers my questions, in layman's terms.

Exposure time 1/infinity? Something's not quite right with that EXIF data. Looks like a longish exposure, anyway, as you can see movement blur on the (presumably) stationary lights as well as the aircraft, indicating the camera is moving too.

Nice that the co-ordinates are on there, though:



The point where the photo was taken lines up pretty nicely with the runway at GSP...

Different planes have different configurations.

Here is one plane with a slightly similar lighting configuration as the on in the OP:


Here is another plane with another similar (but slightly different) configuration as the one in the OP and the one I posted above:


That second image is a screenshot I took of the below video, which shows several different planes landing. Some of the plane have lighting configurations similar to the one in the OP. The screenshot above is from the 1:21 mark in the video. Another plane with a similar lighting configuration can be seen at about 3:15

The lights are not positioned correctly for this to be something like an air-liner. Plus, there is no tail light. The shape definitely looks triangular, given that the positions of the lights would not fit any airplane that I could think of. It it were an airplane, it would have to be a small one. An airliner will have not only a tail light, but most have a light at the top of the tail that illuminates the logo. I have never heard of pilots not turning these lights on, but I suppose it is possible.

There are also supposed to be red and green navigation lights, although these may not be visible if they are placed on the front of the wings. Overall I will not discount that this is a small plane, but it just looks a bit funny to me.

Mufon classifies it as a 'Hovering triangle' there is no triangle visible, only points of light in positions that form a triangle, so Mufon must be assuming that the points of light are just that...lights, and that they must be attached to something of a triangular shape. They may as well just be talking about an aircraft. That the picture appears taken through glass should be taken as suspect as regards the image, it could easily be a multi image through double-glazing and/or reflections.

I don't care how good Mufon might be, the last thing they should be saying is, 'an unknown'

You can't always see the tail light or the red and green nav lights, as I showed in the first image in my post above (which I'll post again here):

Also, not all aircraft have a light on the vertical tail.

In addition, if you watch the video I posted, there are other occasions that the light on the tail and/or the red and green navigation lights are not always visible, and some planes that do not have a steady "position light" on the top of the tail at all.

I posted that so everyone could see the location the picture was taken with reference to local airports also if the date is set correctly on the phone the pictures were taken 27th Oct 2013 seems to take a while to be reported.
