I was attending an outdoor concert at tanglewood in lenox, ma. i had noticed various aircraft throughout the evening at high altitude with flashing strobes, etc. point of interest, i grew up around naval air stations and air force bases most of my life, and am extremely familiar with numerous aircraft and aircraft types.
i happened to notice some movement overhead, and was surprised to see 3 teal colored objects in a perfect triangle formation. the color was kind of a dull colored teal, not overly bright. they began accelerating rather quickly and then disappeared into some cloud cover. no strobes at all and they were absolutely and completely silent. all 3 objects accelerated together at a surprising speed, all the while maintaining the perfect triangle formation. total observation time was only 5 or 6 seconds, but it was enough to unnerve me a little bit.
while i have believed in ufos for a very long time, and know some people who had seen some before, this was the first time i have seen any.
i have f-15 eagles, c-5 galaxys, c-130s, chinooks, blackhawks, hueys and other aircraft fly over my home several times a week, at all hours, sometimes quite low and loudly, as i live between the westover afb and the barnes afb.
but this was not something of ours. the precision of the formation, and the coordination of the acceleration, was absolutely perfect, and something we are not able to do. not like this. and all without making sound.
again, it was a bit unnerving.
We were at an outside concert at farnsworth park in altadena,ca. at dush i pointed out a black sphere to my friend, and said that we were being watched. at around 8:20 p.M. or so i noticed a star, but it wasnt there earlier. as i watched it seemed to get larber ,and brighter….It was very white..Ne of the amphitheater. it traveled very slowly east then got even brighter then gone!! all in a matter of seconds…I would say u der a mi ute. i didnt even have a chance to point it out to my friend! i kept searching the sky for something else the rest of the night ,but nothing.
Me and two of my friends were camping in one of the friend’s backyard. while we were sitting at the fire a giant blackish gray triangle with orange-white changing lights on each corner of the shape. all three of us stood to look at it as it passed over us and kept moving slowly over the rooftops until we couldn’t see it anymore. this was about three years ago but all of us remember it vividly. the only reason we noticed it was because i saw one of the lights out of the corner of my eye. either this thing was huge or really close to the ground because it seemed like each light was a few football fields apart. it was midnight so it was hard to gauge distance without light or clouds. there wasn’t any noticeable sound but we all agreed we felt a slight hum while it passed. at first the object looked like three planes flying in unison, but they were way too far apart for a normal flight and the stars were being blocked out by something. there wasn’t any extreme feelings we felt except for amazement and a bit of fear after it left.
I had just returned home from a family event and noticed a bright blue light in the sky between the trees as i was exiting my vehicle. it was a cloudless, starry night. i walked down the driveway to get an unobstructed view. i was very intrigued by the unusual sight of a blue star, which was my first impression. it was located amongst a cluster of other stars high in the night sky, but larger and more distinct. my father was nearby and i called him over to my vantage point to observe the phenomenon. we stared at it in amazement trying to figure out what it could be. as i prepared to start recording video with my phone, this “star” began moving slowly in a straight path toward the northeast, accelerated, then descended in a rapid, zigzag pattern until we lost sight of it behind the tree lines on the horizon. i went online attempting to locate any reports of this sighting by others to no avail. it was unlike anything i have ever seen before.
I am a amateur astronomer living about 45 miles north of houston. i’m 25 miles north of iah. i have seen aircraft of every description and many different kinds of running lights…This was very different from anything i have seen before.
the sky was cloudless and had good visibility. i noticed the object about 11:20pm and thought it might be a high flying jet. it appeared to be moving too slowly to be a jet and for the same reason i concluded that it was not a satellite. using a pair of 11×80 binoculars i could not detect any body to the craft indicating low reflectance, great distance or small size. at less than 10,000ft i generally can see some detail on jets at night with the 11×80 binoculars as they have about a 6mm exit pupil. my guess is that the craft was between 15k and 35k feet in altitude and moving between 100 to 200 mph.
i think the most unusual aspect was the oscillating light. it was beacon like and white. no other light colors were ever observed. if you can imagine a lighthouse on its side, five or six miles up with the light rotating every 20-40 seconds. the light appeared to be rotating on an axis that was parallel to the ground. it was not a strobe light, this light appeared to shine directly into my binoculars as it rotated in my direction and then away. to the naked eye this beacon effect was not visible, only a change in brightness from invisible to visible and then bright(as the light scanned past me).
one other observation…I live out in the country…Its quiet. there was no sound detected.
Here’s something cool that happened when five friends decided to launch a weather balloon equipped with a GoPro, camcorder, and cell phone over Arizona. After building the device, calculating its trajectory, and registering it with the FAA, the five friends sent it out into the desert. For a while, they were able to track the […]

| Bobby Mohon called the Jackson paper late Friday night from Crystal Springs with the story of how a flying saucer had struck a power company transformer on the night of May 12, causing an electrical outage in the city. He reported mangled bodies laying near the wreckage which had markings indicating it was an unusual military

Saucers That Time Forgot
aircraft. In 1950, the term “UFO” had not yet come into usage, and “flying saucer” was used for unidentified flying objects of any shape. Mohon’s saucer was actually described as cylindrical, and “definitely not an airplane.” The Clarion Ledger scooped the nation with the saucer news, and credited the witness as co-author of the story, along with reporter Tommy E. Hederman.
The story was rushed to press and was on sale Saturday morning before all the facts were in. The investigation by Crystal Springs authorities was reported later the same day by other area news papers.
