I have seen flying triangles in the sky above my house in Spokane, WA in the mid 90's. They had three lights underneath of them, and a fourth light that would light up very brightly as they whisked from horizon to horizon in a few seconds. They also hovered low above the houses, where their triangle shape and the piping on the bottom of them could be seen.

This was probably the Aurora program, but I definitely saw them and got clear enough of a view to mentally document it a few nights in a row. I didn't find out until later about the militaristic origins of the "Flying Triangle" when I saw them on a book cover, and then later in the X Files Season 1, Episode 1.

I will give mu two UFO sightings which I saw with good detail:

1) Very up close, approx 10 meters away from me, give or take. I'd call it egg shaped saucer, witish in color, light eminiating from underneath. No windows from what I could see. Could fit 2-4 small children, 6 year olds.

2) Up close, cigar shaped. Windows on the sides and a bigger window on the front/back. Lights in different colors underneath, red, blue, yellow/white. Metalic in color. Very big, I haven't seen anything that big ever. Could in my guess fit closer to thousand of people.


- In my younger days I used to see what I now know are satelites.
- Stars that shifted in colors
And this one,
I have seen a light orb, bright white, size of a normalz sized air plane but an orb. It stopped, hoovered, made sharp turns, moved fast and slow. I saw this orb for 5 out of 7 days (not in a row but during a week period.) It was very close a couple of times.

Just one, but it was a life changer for me, that is my avatar.

35 years ago, around midnight, about the size of the sun in the sky, radiating a strange red light that I have not seen since, it could best be described as an attempt to emulate the setting sun, but it was artificial, and at midnight.

Something like a 60 foot circular led screen, I watched it dancing around for about 15 minutes before it went up, and away sharply and descended behind the hill.

It was seen by others later that same week. I told one super skeptic friend who refused to listen to my witness account telling me I saw a parachute flare.

This skeptic saw the same object a few days later, and couldn't wait to tell me what he had seen, just out of spite for his not believing me, I replied, "no, you just saw a parachute flare"

So, the cycle continues, skeptics cannot believe something until they have seen it for themselves, then when they talk about it, they get what they deserve.

3 friends and I were at a party on the south coast of England. We left for a while to go to the beach. A red light zig-zagged from north to south (one horizon to the other) in something like ~4 seconds. It was night-time and others saw it too.

If it travelled in a straight line, it would have been a shooting star. The fact that it zig-zagged leaves it unidentified and awkward. These weren't the legendary/notorious 'right-angled' turns, they were more obtuse and in the area of 120/150 degrees. There was some very wispy clouds that I think were cirrocummulus and the light appeared to have been above them.

The impression I was left with was of a shooting star somehow ricocheting, internally, off the Earth's atmosphere.

I saw something silvery way up in the sky once, but it was so high up it could have been one of Gary Glitters Boots for all i know.

Everything else i have worked out what it is eventually...Binoculars.

I have had multiple sightings. I spoted what apered to be a new star, when it disapeared two days laterNASA anouncede the landing of their new space plane.

Spoted a orb over portland north to south and reversed and headed back north all the time traveling faster than anything I have ever seen. I live by an ANG base.

Spoted an orbin front of the moon just before it flashed, when it flashed it was like an arc welder flash that feals like it penitrates to your bones. It then took off north at at unimaginable speed.

An orb going north then stop as it right over a star on the horizon and disapeared.

Two chemtrail planes that banked to steep as they where lining up thaie run, each tim tey decloced and showed their real self. they are not comercial planes. They are small black winged rocket like craft

Multiple tims I have seen chemtrail plains leving their clasic four engine trails from under the wings, BUT the planes apeared to be MD80's with the two engines mounted on the tail of the fusilage. No engines under the wings.

Yes strangely enough with my mother first. She of no nonsense was fascinated to watch some airborne spark of light flying in a most erratic manner, disappearing between a forest of trees and then popping out and whizzing about. It was very high in the sky and several other cars had stopped and were watching it. This was back in the early 1960's.

Then one morning I was something that fascinated me and I cannot explain - neither can I explain why at 8 40 am and dropping into Torbay were four objects. It was a beautiful day and they were set against a cloudless blue sky and were simply four objects, not exactly shining but just visible and dropping very slowly down. It was the controlled slowness of the fall that bothered me. I couldn''t find the number of the local radio station to ring them so I watched them. Then as they got nearer the sea they seemed to slowly bounce up instead of continuing their fall. One even bounced sideways. The whole experience lasted at least 10 minutes, it was a busy time and I felt surely someone else should have seen them. I telephoned my son and he simply said how many people do you think are gazing up into the sky when trying to get to work?

I don't know what to make of either episode except to say I have reported each exactly as it happened.

I've had the following experiences.

1) 19 years old. Was doing sit ups on top of my house in Huntington Beach. UFO disc shaped grey was hovering over the house observing me with balls of light like antennas which I can see clearly come out of the sides. Happened for 5 minutes I ran to get a roommate to see, we came back it was gone. It was roughly 1,000 feet up right over me. I wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't on my back. It's grey and blue matched the sky almost perfectly.

2) Santa Monica, 1995 came out of a pool hall late at night and went to my car on a parking structure. Felt like someone was watching me above. Looked up, saw an amber light 'craft' do 90 degree turns at several times Mach, and zoom off into the clouds. Was about 10,000 feet up.

3) Fireball in Napa streaked across the sky full length of horizon. Not a shooting star but something on fire. Not an airplane. Was with a GF in backyard. Was at about 30,000 feet

4) Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach. Saw a grey orb in low clouds actually MAKING clouds which were squarish. Watched it with a neighbor for 20 minutes. No camera, this was 1993.

5) Zuma Beach, about 1994. With friend on top of lifeguard station 3AM. Lights in sky, came down over water and came onto beach. Football field length, went in an out of visibility, saw stars THROUGH it, no sound, blue "afterburners" on back, hovered only maybe 100 feet over houses. Friend and I ran back to car and while running, looked in sky and saw dozens of smaller ships in sky 'dancing'.

6) Arizona, driving East to see dying Aunt in hospital. Took wrong road at about 11:00 at night. Middle road between hills and nobody around fro miles. Light chased me on road for about 5 miles with me going 140 MPH and my gears almost busting. This was AFTER I pulled over to see what it was because it jumped and danced off of the road blinking red then bluish white and getting back on road in 'orb' shape. Was about 4 feet in diameter. While on side of road, man with beard and green 'suit' (human) yelled "wait come back" and tried to grab my back bumper. My eyes were on the UFO sitting roughly 200 yards on the road behind me and he literally POPPED out of the darkness in my review mirror. I pulled out so fast the gravel spun up on him and for the next 4 miles I drove 140 MPH with the UFO chasing me. Got to a gas station and looked back it was gone. Called police, made report.

7) 2 years ago in San Pedro. Saw a 'fleet' of lights, about 30, come in over the Palos Verdes area from the ocean, about 12AM. Other L.A. residents saw it too. Not helicopters, not planes. Just a fleet of Amber quiet lights going horizontal about 10 miles up and when they reached inland, they all went dark.

I don't have sightings that much anymore. They used to make me feel like I was losing my mind or crazy, so I'm kind of glad. And no, I've never been diagnosed with a mental disorder like Schizophrenia or Manic Depression. I was perfectly sober all times too. And I'm probably one of the sanest people I least I think LOL.

Believe it or not my family and I had a sighting, however to this day I still don't know what the heck we saw I am a skeptic btw.
I came home early one Sunday morning after closing up shop at about 4:00 A.M my ol lady and my eldest daughter were on the balcony having gal talk, it was July summer time hot and humid in western Japan ,the youngest was sound asleep,so I took my shower went on the balcony gave them a peck on the cheek and retire,now as anyone who knows me knew very well I don't take kindly to be roused outta bed for Bullsiiit but that's what happened my daughter came bursting into my rm all excited yelling daddy !! daddy!! Ufo Ufo!!! so I flung my pillows at her telling to go away and bother your mom at this time the younger daughter came in all excited yelling then the wife started so I up I went to the Balcony expecting to reign down verbal hell on all three ,but I look in the direction of where they were pointing, somewhere due south and sure enough there were three lights lined up just hovering between two buildings off in the distance,I knew it wasn't Orion's belt too low and the alignment was off but they just stood there then one danced around the others moving kinda weird I tried to eliminate the possibilities,helos?? naaw seems odd to be doing that at that time of the morning then they began to fade in and out (cloudless night btw) I got my cell phone and tried to take a pic but all that I saw were 3 crappy lights out in the distance of the type of pics that one see on Youtube that generally annoyed the hell outta me, gradually the sun began to come up and the lights tick-off the sky one after another, we had an early breakfast trying to figure out what we just saw, the kids were excited and couldn't wait to brag to their friends,my wife was convinced it's something other worldly I on the other hand made no conclusion,but I learnt one thing that morning..don't pooh pooh other people's experiences.

Although there are many UFO's (insects, birds, the flitter seen just off the corner of the eye) I've never seen anything I can pin down as an alien craft. Never saw a ghost either. I did see one of those black triangle planes that everyone spooks about while looking for the space station one night with binoculars (it had a red and white light on two corners, so I aimed the binocs at it, and by George if it wasn't a triangle plane wayyyyyy up in the night sky)

Saw one of the black triangles of the Belgian UFO wave, 25 years ago. I was a teen.
I never testified about it even if it took place at the top of of the observation waves.
I just felt re-assured by the fact that other witnesses (adults) confirmed seeing the triangle as well that night in the vicinity.

Retrospectively, there is no obvious reason to be convinced that this craft was of ET origin.
This could well have been man-made and, the characteristics of the craft as described by the F-16 pilots our Air Force sent to chase the thing let me think it could have been antigrav tech.

Several times but I am surrounded by RAF bases and know very little about planes.

I saw one about 3 days ago, Very bright light in the sky, too bright if you know what i mean, travelling too fast or so it seemed, I was half way through thinking wow a ufo and it just disapeared.

posted on Nov, 9 2014 @ 05:56 AM
About 10 yrs ago, watching the night sky and noticed what I thought was a plane travelling north, then it made a 90 degree turn and disappeared.

posted on Nov, 9 2014 @ 06:09 AM
I've seen a few strange things as long as i can remember.

Along with missed time, a visitation when I was very young and one about 14 years ago when I was 32. I have to question myself about what happened and have only recently been able to speak about it with those very close to me.

I have also been scouring other visitation stories to try to find any similarities.

No, I have never seen anything in the sky for which I couldn't think of an explanation (but that doesn't mean that my explanation was right), but I knew two persons that saw a cigar-shaped dark form, hiding the stars, flying over the town where I live in the 1970s.

many. several nut and bolt type aerial phenomenon and an abundance of the 'cloaked' type which imo have flaws to which one can establish an edge or starting point. from this the main superstructure is perceived.
from the age of around ten onwards. scared the crap out of the old man. lol avoids me like the plague these days!

posted on Nov, 9 2014 @ 07:26 AM
Yes. Just what looked like a small ball of white light, but it approached the car, hovered about twenty feet in front of us for about 5 or 6 seconds, then then took off away from us and was gone in a about a second

(One of my three UFO experiences)
Fishing at lake Bala, North Wales, UK about Easter time in 1979 or maybe 80 with my dad and a friend.
Whilst packing up to go home, we all noticed a bright light in the sky above us.
We watched for about half an hour as this light made some incredible manoeuvres and speeds.
There was no way we could estimate how high it was, or what shape or size.
We got home and tried to logically work out what it could be. There was a nearby airbase which we thought may be a test centre for secret missile Tech, but other than that we were stumped.
It's only been since the invention of the internet and forums like these that I've found other witnesses to that event that happened that night, and many more just like it in the same area.
