I have seen the flying triangle over Tucson It was virtually invisible but the angle I saw it from caused the light to bend in a way; making it slowly visible. Two others saw it also, and it was being escorted by two fighter jets into Davis Monthan Airforce Base.

Flying triangles were developed by US scientists using Roswell tech.
Also earlier versions were the Phoenix Lights.

O.K.

O.P., in your car at the lights, how can you be sure that the object you saw was an aircraft?
The shadow went right over you, correct?

How, from that height(sitting in your car or standing at the lights), could you tell exactly what it was?
Could you possibly be making an assumption here?
Your perspective on the moving shape of a 30-50ft shadow, was taken from a height of no more than 7ft I'm guessing.
Are you sure it was the shape of something with a fuselage and wings?

I'm not bagging you, because I have seen something myself, but unlike most I got to actually see it.
When you can put the lenses up to your eyes and it's there, then take them away and it's not there, it really wakes you up.

I have however heard of something similar. It was in a fictional book by Whitley Strieber called "The Gray's"

In the book, there was an aircraft built by our government that
couldnt be seen because ( if I remember correctly) it had some device that somehow displaced the light some how making it invisible. In the book it flew low to the ground and very slow it was so low that you could feel the breeze it caused as it went by.

Thats the only place I have heard of any aircraft like that.


Scary...
gimme_some_truth, if you read my first ever post you'll see that I have stated that the object I saw was flying very low and very slow.

I'd die before I'd give up my goggles for anything or anyone now, that's for sure.

I would like to back up the OP on this one. I "saw" the invisible plane too about a year ago. It made a lot of noise and was flying low. Actually, it was being flown overhead off and on almost all last summer in my present location, (location removed on edit)

If you saw a shadow, you could have seen the plane. If you didn't see it, then either the shadow was from something else, or you merely weren't looking in the right direction.

It is possible that if the aircraft existed, the second it flew over you it activated its cloaking mechanism, but why would such a valuable technology be used in plain sight?


It depends on the technology used to camouflage the aircraft. LED's for example if used around the aircraft would only make it appear that it was the exact color of the sky above it, but since LED is limited on brightness, it would be impossible for it to fill in the shadow that was being cast.

I remember seeing a technology show where they used lights to make a tank vanish from a hill. This was technology used in WWII. LCD or other panels could be used. This is not outside of possibility at all. Anyone could replicate this if you had enough money for LED panels or backlit LCDs for varying contrast.

Darkpr0, I am afraid your assumption may be wrong.


I think at this point the use of LED's or even OLED's are outdated. I'm aware of at least one japanese company that have developed a fabric covered in micro-sensors that transpose what is behind the object to the front, thus making it seem a lot less visible.

i think that have photo's of an invisable aircraft...

I was taking photo's of sunset over looking City & Bayside Melbourne on 25th May 2008. WHich was made blood red from very high polution levels and no wind...
I have 3 still images and around 5 minutes of video...
i did post online for a bit... but have since taken them down...

the size you describe is about right. But they are ball shaped, and aren't invisable, they just reflect the light directly around them.

yes, i have seen the same thing.
rumor has it that not only is this plane invisible, but they have matching undergarments that go with it. Let me know where you can get those, i would like my wife to have a pair.

I saw a show on either History or Discovery a few years ago where they discussed a new spy plane which had thousands upon thousands of little cameras placed on the top of the plane. The bottom of the plane was either some sort of screen or was composed of a large number of screens. The idea was that the cameras would take pictures of the sky above the plane and project it underneath the plane. So, in theory, the plane would be "invisible".

Could possibly have been something like this..

Actually invisibility cloaks aren't perfect they still reflect at least 5% of light the human eye could barely discern somthing reflecting that much light ... but a shadow will still be cast because of the difference in the amount of light hitting the groud where the object is .. enough to see a shadow.. this could be military and if so its not in plain sight.. I am sure not many people noticed this.

I suggest you read up on the "current state" of cloaking technology we are far beyond using lcd screens and cameras for this.. really amazing stuff makes frotos cloaking jacket seem feasible very very soon..

Hmmmm this sounds a lot like John Lear's Holographic planes.
I wonder if John was flying this one


Seriously though why would such tech even be present where you could stumble upon it?

There was a ver slight incline to the road I was sitting on. The road ahead of me just barely sloped upwards, so I got a good look at the shape of the shadow--it was air-plane shaped, and as I noted earler, and was also correctly proportioned in terms of the fuselage and wing length.

So Mockmasta - care to elaborate on what kind of goggles we're talking about ? I want some ! I'm guessing infra red/ night vision ? I've heard several stories from people that claimed to see slow moving objects in the night sky using certain types of night Vision systems that weren't visible to the naked eye.

As for cloaking technology, heck yeah. It's here, no doubt. I know someone involved in selling consumer led screen displays (huge fabric based screens used in tradeshows and entertainment venues for displaying video) and we discussed this very subject. He's aware of tech that's ten years out from being in the private sector that's nano based and would do exactly what's being discussed. I was even speculating about the Stephensville texas sighting - so many skeptics cry that if we had that kind of advanced flying craft (300 to 500 foot hovering silent triangle ships) there's no way it'd be used over populated areas. My guess is it happens often, but cloaked. I'd guess if the texas sightings were "ours" there was a malfunction with the cloaking system.

As others have stated – if a simple MSM search reveals stories on this type of tech in development you can be damn sure it’s gone way beyond anything they’re showing publicly.

He is wearing the "invisibility cloak" but if you look behind him, he is still casting a shadow.



The Projector
The modified image produced by the computer must be shone onto the garment, which acts like a movie screen. A projector accomplishes this task by shining a light beam through an opening controlled by a device called an iris diaphragm. An iris diaphragm is made of thin, opaque plates, and turning a ring changes the diameter of the central opening. For optical camouflage to work properly, this opening must be the size of a pinhole. Why? This ensures a larger depth of field so that the screen (in this case the cloak) can be located any distance from the projector.


Your link.

The reason he's casting a shadow is because the projector can't pass through him. This technology is neither what is being discussed here, nor is it really viable on aircraft.



The glass is clear-- i.e. "Invisible" in the sense of "transparent," but it still casts a shadow here.


That's because the way the glass is shaped it refracts the light more to some areas than others. An aircraft that was camo'd or disguised shouldn't have that.



Sorry if it seems that I'm trying to do nothing but prod your story to death, but frankly it seems to me like people are stomping on the simplest explanation.

I theorized that it might have been intentionally flown like that, in order to gague how much the public reacted to it, if it was indeed a secret plane.

So if "you" are reading this-- yes, I did see your danged plane.

Because there are so many reputable experts ready to easily dismiss anything that’s being described !

Just trying to give an example of what I was talking about in theory. The "invisible" object is still opaque and will cast a shadow, that's all.

I put the glass on there because I thought that an airplane is a pretty big thing to have "invisible" in the sense that you wanted to define it as... I wondered if, after going thorugh all that invisible material, the light might start to cast a shadow as it does sometimes with an invisible glass.

They're a set of ITT Gen.3 goggles made for the military and law enforcement sectors.
Recommended Retail Price in Canada is $6000.

You said that it was moving from the south to north. There were a few scattered clouds, and the wind direction changed from out of the north, to out of the south.. If near Love Field it could have been a corporate jet, they take off and land at much steeper angles than commercial flights, and create a now you see me now you don't scenario. Thinking about it, there has always been a tremendous amount of air traffic in that area. I moved and don't miss the noise .

This isnt new - I saw this on Future Weapons a year ago. They showed a man in uniform in full cloak and explained it just like the article on DC

dsc.discovery.com...

You could not see the guy unless you were looking for him. Like heat shimmering off pavement that is what you saw a shimmering reflection of everything behind or around him. It was kinda creepy.

If the general media is just releasing this I am sure the gov has had it for some time now.



I have heard of that beind put on tanks, it's no strech it might be on a plane, as well.


The DOD also uses this type of camo on the Air Forces Delta type Stelth Blimp ships.

The blimps fly night missions mostly and use a star field projected on the crafts belly or underside to hide the ship in plain site.

Very cool program that is at least 10 years old.
