I have seen a triangle craft. It was classic looking, with amber lights, slow, low, we were out on a backroad in the middle of the night.

It scared one kid, and I was amazed, we followed it as far as the road allowed, and watched as it drifted off and disappeared across a field.

I consider this to be a UFO even tho I doubt it is in anyway alien related. In the Florida Keys walking to work around 7 am, I heard a hum, I looked up to my right and slowing moving very close over a building was a vehicle of some type. It was white and brown, there was a window on the side but I could not see any one there. It was not very large - maybe 12 feet long and for lack of better description it was sorta cigar shaped. I watched it go slowly toward the ocean and just when it seemed to reach the water it disappeared. My thoughts is that is was military related but have never seen anything like it before or since. I still think of it often.

Hi all! If you see something, a year later you question yourself whether
it really happened, or if you dreamed it. I have see two different somethings from very extremely brief in time period of a few seconds to a minute or two, during the past year and a half. All I came away with was we are being visited, and by what as a large question. One finds out anyone else thinks your weird and they don't believe you. More like: they love denial and ignorance because it feels safe. So, if half of the sightings are real, we are a tourist destination for many question mark ETCs... It just makes you realize we are not alone. It makes me worried, and wonder what's going to happen. We must be very primitive and simple as a civilization.

Wow, incredible.

The UFO I saw 11 years ago, in July 1999 was exactly the same kind.
It matches perfectly your description but mine was hovering in front of me some 100 meters and never overhead. A kind of circle-like object with several bright lights circling it, and moving gracefully and in silence very close to where I was. The lights shone what otherwise would have been a dark forest. I was struck by awe that night!

The first UFO I saw was about 20 years ago.

Suddenly I hear Rick say, "What the hell is that?" I could tell by his voice that he was startled. So I turned my head to see what he was talking about, and there it was. Flying very low, coming straight toward us from the east, was a very large circle of evenly spaced bright white lights. About a dozen or so lights.

It flew right over our heads as it headed west. It flew level and fast. About 100-200 feet off the ground or so. I could have sworn I could see right through it as it passed right over us. I thought I could see the wisps of cloud and stars overhead as it flew underneath them. It didn't seem to be a solid "nuts n' bolts" craft with lights around the was just a large and perfect circle. Incredibly pure white lights...with an eerie quality that I can't quite describe.

It made no engine sounds, there was no obvious means of propulsion, and I thought I could sort of hear it slicing through the air. It was headed for the tallest mountain of the range to the west of us.

Rick and I were on our feet the second we saw it. We watched with our jaws hanging...utterly flabbergasted. After it was out of view we just looked at each other with our eyes bulging out of our heads.

I have seen some but nothing discernible (shape or colour) - I have seen them from a long distance, but it was quite clear that it wasn't anything else.

I was sitting on a gold course with my girl friend and just chatting about the stars. We were getting a little philosophical and I was telling her a story about the pleadians, I was pointing at them when we both noticed (what we thought was a star) moving one direction do a complete 90 degree turn and go the other way. It was weird but I knew it wasn't a satellite!

I used to think I saw an UFO.
What I mean is, there was something in the sky and I wasn't able to identify it at the time. It was white and round, and very far. I'm pretty sure it was nothing ET, most likely weather balloon (I've never seen one before, so it confused me at first).
But even though I'm not in lucky "I saw an UFO" group, I believe they're there. I keep watching the sky in hope that I will someday see something. And for now, envy those who have.

I have. 100% certain. No Doubt in my mind.

I have seen lanterns, satalites etc and know for a fact, what i saw was a UFO. by that i mean something i cannot explin terrestially. whether it be government projects or aliens or whatever, definatly a UFO.

full explanations of what i saw on my profile, feel free to have a look/ comment etc.

Quick brief: bright orange ball flying slow-ish through the sky, 15 of us saw it, as it passed over the houses the bright orange light cut out but you could still make out a white/metal "ball" still flying in the same direction.

since then ive seen a few more red UFO's, a couple were even playing with each other as they flew.

My wife and I were living in a condo in Columbus,Ohio about 4 years ago. We were taking a walk,during the day, through the condo. I mentioned to my wife I saw a jet in the air. She looked and said that's not a jet it's not moving.
I looked up again and sure enough it was still. We were kind of spooked. I always told myself I would get a camera when this moment came and I wasn't far from my unit but I was afraid If I left I would miss something and I was right. We were so focused on this object it took us some time to realize this was not the only object in the sky. BTW the object was silver. There was one higher in the sky and farther east but identical looking. Just below this one was a larger object,maybe 5 times the size, circular in shape with what looked like 3 openings or portholes. In front of the large object was another object identical to the other two. All of the three were silver. All of them at this point were not moving. We don't know how long we were there but eventually the objects began moving east across the sky. It was very odd because their speed was a crawl like they were not concerned about being detected. It appeared as though the smaller objects were escorting and protecting the larger object. We watched this for about 5 to 10 minutes and expected them to race off but they never did. At one point they just disappeared. That scared us more than if they would have sped off because we weren't expecting them to just disappear. We looked at each other and said where did they go? Do you still see them? We both said no. It almost made us feel like it never happened.

I saw one in the mid '70s. Two RAF Phantoms chasing a silver sphere south to north over NE England and then haring out over the North Sea. Rapidly followed by an RAF Nimrod following them at rooftop height.

I could see it pretty clearly, it looked solid.

I can hardly believe it myself, but I have seen UFO's on five different occasions. Different type everytime. Weird. I 'll go into a few details later.
I need to go ni ni.

About a month ago i was flying from KBHM (birmingham AL) to KDEN (denver CO) about halfway through i looked out my window and saw something flying next to us. It was quite small and didn't look like a jet at all. It Was cylindrical. Then it just stopped. Then it was out of my sight.

My sighting was up close about 10 meters I guess.I was 11 or 12 years old at the time,that would make it 1974 or 5.
I was walking home in the dark from a friends house across some railway embankments (This was a short cut) When I looked to my right and saw a erm 'Space ship'Hovering silently above the trees.It was out of this world.

But at the time,I nearly crapped my pants.I was so frightened I just ran and ran and did not look back.When I arrived home I just burst out in tears,I just could not stop crying.

I kept repeating over and over to my family (mum,step dad,3 brothers and sister)I've seen a F*****g space ship.Crying my eyes out.

My mum said stop swearing and my reply was but I've seen a F......g SPACE SHIP..

My brother came to mine last week for a few beers and he told me how histerical I was on that night.All my family bring it up now and again.In fact from that day I have totally changed.

It makes me feel better to just to document what I saw,way back then,on here.Thanks. I will continue with my post tomorrow.

The description.I looked at the object for approximately 5 seconds before taking in what I was actually looking at.

I was on top of the embankment and the tree tops were a couple of meters above my line of sight,so basically I was viewing the object sidewards on.

It was around eight meters in length,two to three meters deep and jet black with a band of color(lights that bleed into each other) around the bottom.It looked oblong in shape with no rounded edges.

Later in life when the internet arrived I did a lot of research regarding what I saw and come to the conclusion it might have been a triangle craft viewed from one side.

I believe that craft was not manufactured by humans.Thanks

My only UFO sighting...

I was driving a truck (OTR) near Flagstaff, late at night, about 4am.
A green meteor streaked into my narrow field of view, coming straight
down. I could probably see about 60 degrees of horizon, so it wasn't
much. I've seen lots of meteors, this one was not uncommon,
bright neon green and headed straight down, except this one stopped.
By that I mean, on a dime. It paused for a split second and then streaked
off to the east and was out of sight in two shakes. The whole sighting lasted
maybe three seconds.

It absolutely defied physics. It made me a believer in ET's. While I think
alot of UFO sightings, even incredible ones, are probably of human
origin...this one WAS NOT. Whatever it was that made that maneuver,
at that speed, was controlling it's own gravitational environment.

Since that day, I've concluded that the way to reach the stars, to get our
astronauts out of the solar system, is to utilize gravity.

Anyway...that's my only sighting. And I have spent an awful lot of time
outside at night...that's it.

[edit on 8-8-2010 by rival]

Yeah, that is pretty much word-for word what my wife and step daughter, 15, reported to me last year. They were coming home near dark, and spotted a bright light heading straight down, and based on it's size, they thought it was a plane going was visible all the way to our driveway, where they both witnessed it stop, pause, and make triangular shaped movements, the first of which was straight up. After each pause, it changed direction, at about 45 deg. from last trajectory. My wife ran into the house to get me (as I am the only UFO nut in the house), but I was too late. My step daughter stayed in the car so not to lose it, but it disappeared before I could get outside.

But no, I've never seen one myself. This is the closest I've come.

ETA: This was about 20 miles SE of Baton Rouge near Denham Springs, LA
about 500-530PM.
