So I saw a UFO as a child during the 90's in Texas near the DFW aria. I gave a description in my introductory thread here.

To summarize: One night I saw lights in a pyramid shaped formation with the base in the shape of a regular polygon. It was larger than a car. It was two or three stories above the ground. It had little white lights at the base, and a big red light on top. Unfortunately I didn't count the lights, but I think the base was hexagonal. There were three speed-bump like things on the bottom shaped into segments of a circle. When a spot-light was shined on the bottom I saw a dull metallic color. It moved slowly and awkwardly. It wobbled and tilted further into the direction it went, moving in short choppy motions. It was over traffic in a populated aria. I couldn't hear it.

So, I have some questions: Does anyone know of any similar reports, especially ones I can verify (published in the 90's)? Does anyone know of any declassified technology or unmasked hoaxes that would produce this sort of report? Can anyone explain why it would move in such an awkward manner? Can anyone explain why it would show up in public like that? Can anyone explain what it was? Since it did show up in public; why is it so hard to find a report of a similar sighting?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not asking you to believe it. I'm asking if you can show documentation of a similar sighting or provide an explanation.

We didn't carry a camera with us much back then, and cell phones weren't popular until long after. If we did take a picture in those lighting conditions, you'd see a few blurry lights
. A photo like that could easily be faked. Did the battle of Gettysburg not happen either? I've never seen a photo of Isaac Newton, was he made up? If that pic next to your post is supposed to be you, I'm a little skeptical of your existence...

A lot earlier but the Cash-Landrum ufo sighting might help, at least as far as shape.

Thanks! Their sighting seems fairly different, but it's still interesting. If you go here and search for spy balloon there's some interesting speculation. Assuming what I saw wasn't using an exotic propulsion system, a balloon would have the closest type of movement.

So the object appeared "Triangle" Shaped but standing on its end?

Flying slowly and without sound, not much higher than tree tops (maybe 100 feet or so) ?

With a red light and maybe white light on its extremities, that may have flashed?

Sounds like a classic normal black triangle, standing on its end, If they manipulate gravity as proposed, they can fly in any direction or position and not affect its performance, even upside down....theoretically.

Do you have an air force or army base within, say, 50 miles of your location?

Pics or it didn't happen.

Damn that's clever. Never heard that before. Any other pithy witticisms?

Interesting story. I will say that I think 95% of sightings are explainable 5% are not. Among those explainable a percentage fall into the category of unidentifiable. Not because they are alien but because the military based technology is in some cases decades ahead of what the public is use to seeing.

Maybe search for unknown military aircraft and the like. No matter how tight any project is their is always a leak. These days leaks end up on the internet. Is what ends up on the internet true?? Your call. But looking into from that perspective may give you some leads.

It may have been closer to saucer shaped, but I remember it to be polygon shaped. If it was saucer shaped, what I saw was an optical illusion caused by the poor lighting and arrangement of its lights. Seeing it from the bottom, you'd see a regular polygon (like a hexagon). When I saw it from a distance at first, I'd say it was tilting towards me blocking some of the lights on the bottom. I didn't see any of the lights blink. It didn't rotate much, if a any.

Oh yeah, my mother mentioned there was some kind of military base near by; when she mentioned that to my father he said there are military bases all over the place (he thought we saw something ordinary and were blowing it out of proportion).

In my opinion you'll find very little intelligent conversation about UFOs
on this site. That whole "pics or it didn't happen thing" kills me; I could
say the same thing about the people who say that.. most of them are
so lackluster in what they post, they could be an AI bot for all I know.

In case you haven't noticed, there are various categories of replies you
will get:

1) Simple bashers who contribute nothing.

2) People who are convinced you confused a massive in your face, highly
detailed "something" with the planet venus or swamp gas.. well I suppose
those folks are nearly the same as number 1, except they write more

3) People who are all hot about the "Black Project aircraft", which might
actually explain 5% of the sightings.

4) The people who think the "sightings" are demons; even though their religion
was created ex nihilo by the Roman Empire to pacify citizens or some other
control mechanism, so none of the entities they go on about even exist at all.

5) People who of course watch too much Ancient Aliens.

6) People who watch too much Star Trek (the break away civilization people)

7) and of course the like 3 people on here who think that UAPs / Plasma entitites
might be involved (don't trust them, they are trouble makers)

But in short, all these factions come wading in from the dark making proclamations,
in some sort of proxy war against each other whenever someone makes a new UFO
sighting post, especially if it involves "black triangles" or something like that.

OH - and 8) I suppose, there is a fair amount of reasonable conjecture, that ATS
is just being used as part of various psychological studies, of weird people who
believe in UFOs and the paranormal. Iv'e actually been contacted by several
and one fellow wanted to make a movie. There are also people who once
worked for intelligence agencies who are known to hangout here.. so like I said..
"discussing UFOs" is really a something else on ATS.

As for what I say you might have seen? Some combination of #3 and #7.

Sounds like you had some sort of flying triangle sighting. Although it doesn't seem like it was exactly that, I still think it falls under that category as its shape and light configuration comes in variations.

Check out this presentation by Michael Schratt, he had a segment where he spoke on black triangle sightings, maybe there's something there you can relate to:

Edit: I was trying to get it to play from the exact location, but skip forwards to 46:38 in the video.

Actually not a bad observation either. As it turns out,
there are multiple mechanisms that can trigger such
a thing.

You know this is a very interesting video. It in fact helps
make my case beautifully.

Doesn't ANYONE find it odd, that if these black triangle UFOs
are supposed to be 'ours' that there are thousands of different
models of them, all radically different?

Henry Ford would be aghast!

Heck, I was in the Military for 8 years, with a secret
security clearance.. I operated nuclear reactors.

And I can tell you, that what we used anyway, was
tech that was 20 years out of date, mass produced,
and used everywhere, even though out of date,
because it had already been purchased in bulk
years before.

Here's what I think:

yes, there are black project craft out there.. but they
aren't the SECRET. They are the cover for the secret..
the secret being that these fleets of black triangle
UFOs have been seen since before modern technology
was even invented... and it can't be stopped..

so these knock offs are being produced as the cover,
not the secret.

I haven't fully vetted that opinion yet, but it seems
quite plausible.

We see all these stylized black triangle UFO pictures..
only that's not what most people see.. what I saw
for example looked NOTHING like any of the
photos or videos, and of course it shape-changed,
so it was really irrelevant what it 'looked like'.

But great video! Thanks.

Glad it was of use to you!

Many of the sightings of triangles in that presentation, of those that were fairly detailed, mentioned materials that we are very familiar with (e.g. construction beams, pipes etc...). I haven't drawn any conclusions out of this though.

I would recommend checking out this thread as well. Depending on what you want to believe, this might shed some light on the "we made/they made" argument. Nonetheless it's a very interesting read in case you previously haven't had the chance to peruse it.

You actually believed the publicly released blue book data? 5% is a lie. Go see special report no.14

The one I saw had pipes, rails and rivets
too....which would have been impossible
to see when it was near the far horizon,
unless I have telescopic vision like

This proved that the image was put
in my mind.

That and the fact it changed shape
radically 3 times... and 'talked to

Now of course the question is, what
put the image in my mind?

Oh...please don't reference psychological
operation threads to me...I find it very
offensive. This is the very reason I'm
cutting back on ATS 90%.

It's hard to find intelligent conversations about UFOs anywhere. Discussions usually take place with:
people who saw something, but don't know anything, talking to each other,
people who saw something, but don't know anything, talking to people who didn't see anything and don't know anything,
worst and most common: people who didn't see anything and don't know anything discussing roomers!

Still, hope springs eternal. I've already gotten some good replies after all. The category 2 replies are irritating at first (I went through that with my father in the beginning), but it's a reaction worth studying out of psychological curiosity. It's like they only have slots for a circle, triangle and square. What do they do when you hand them a star? They freak out and try to shove it through a random slot!

Any way, I'm hoping after the smoke clears from the factional war you described, some little fragments of truth will be left lying out, ready to be picked up.
