Currently the process only bends light in the red and blue spectrum, not the full light spectrum, so it's not quite “invisibility."
appeared to be partially transparent
“’It’ was about 20 feet above us.
Its measurements were about 5-7 feet long and 3-5 feet wide and 1-3 feet in height.”

At that size it sounds like some sort of drone TR3, and man made.

”Texas couple describes triangle UFO at 20 feet”
Hi ATSians and Good Morning!

Looking at the sketch of the object reminded me of this seen by multiple police officers in Jan 2000.

I know those big black triangles are Lockheed Martin's planes, they were the ones spotted in Stephenville Texas..
"The object, whatever it was, went from basically standing still to 1900 miles per hour in about 2 seconds.. I don't know of anything that's 600 feet across, that can hover, that can go 1900 miles an hour in 2 seconds then stop again.. If you do the calculations that's about 43 G's.. Within seconds you'd kill any human being."

What is this thing in the sky?
I've seen this thing before. It was probably about a year ago in the same location. Tonight I looked out of a window and saw it again so I rushed out and managed to get this photo of it. The photo was taken on a phone with a 5mg camera.
The photo does not show what I observe with my own eyes. It's a phone camera and it seems easily confused by light sources.
The object emits a very clear Orange light (just like street lamps), but as you can see the camera sees it as a weak yellow light.
The first time I saw this thing I had a very good look at it as it doesn't fly very high and moves very slow. I've drawn a picture below showing what I saw. The picture differs from what the photo shows us and I suspect that may be because it's easily confused by light sources! We'll come to that in a little while.
The picture is very pixelated because the camera is only 5 megapixels, but as you can see, it's not showing what I see with my own eyes, I find that intriguing!
As some of you may be aware, digital cameras are sensitive to infra-red light, you can test that by pointing your tv remote at the camera and viewing it in the viewfinder. Press a button on the remote and your camera will see what you can't!
The shape of the object in the photo does not match what I can see and I'm now wondering if the camera is picking up infra-red from the object, but ignoring the orange light that I can see and that's why it appears a different shape.
Maybe an ats camera expert might have some input on this?
This object flies about like it wants to be seen! The first time I saw it, it was making a very tight circle. The way it moves indicates its very much like an airplane - slight banking as it turns etc, but its speed can be very slow, so slow that a plane would not be able to stay in the sky! And there's no noise! none at all.
This thing is VERY visible, the orange glow is on all sides. On the rear I can just make out that its segmented, its also not so bright on the rear.
Both times I have had a good view of this thing and I know its not Chinese lanterns or swamp gas! It's a craft that glows bright orange on all sides, but not on the bottom, I dont know about the top.
I don't believe its alien, and I don't think its military because I don't get why they would fly this thing so visibly, so I'm more inclined to think its some elites own personal high tech transport!?
Whatever it is, it seems to defy gravity and must have a huge power source to be able to glow so bright!
I think the orange glow must be something to do with its means of propulsion?
This was on the south coast (uk) and both times its headed west along the coastline.
Anyone else seen this thing?
It's obviously bigger than appears IMO.
My husband says he doesn’t know if ‘it’ itself was organic.
There were no smells or trails/vapors. In his opinion it had a moth-like body with wings closed upside down.
To him ‘its’ transparency was like bee wing material I guess membrane-ish. He felt excited, nervous, shocked.”

Anyway, "bee-wing material", wow.
The street light didn’t illuminate ‘it.’ And ‘it’ didn’t cast a shadow. It seemed to reflect light. It kind of seemed holographic.

’It’ looked like it was made out of one sheet of metal. There were no panels, rivets, sections, windows, fumes, smell.
In my opinion ‘it’ had a predator’s cloak/transparency, not totally invisible, like you can see some of it, but it was kind of blurry like summer’s heat haze.
