Two North Carolina witnesses at Durham reported watching what appeared to be multiple triangle-shaped UFOs hovering and drifting in the area over a one hour and 25-minute period beginning about 9:20 p.m. on January 7, 2015, according to testimony in Case 62491 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The two were driving to a gas station in northern Durham when the first object was observed.
“My girlfriend and I witnessed an extremely bright hovering object, amber in color,” the reporting witness stated. “We decided to drive around to get a better view of it over the treetops and witnessed what looked like a triangular light pattern – one very large, very bright amber light in the nose and a smaller flashing light on each wingtip and center which stayed illuminated but strobed brighter in order from left to right.”
The object moved in the opposite direction of their car.
“Because it was so far away we could not make out any structure. The large light was unlike anything we had seen in the sky before in terms of its size and brightness.”
But once the object was out of view they continued to the gas station. On the way back to the house they encountered the object again, hovering close to its original position.
“It was much closer and we turned into a neighborhood to get a good look. The object was very close. I would compare it to watching a plane in take-off pass overhead in terms of its distance. As we pulled into the neighborhood it stopped hovering and began moving – drifting might be a more fitting verb – across the sky towards us.”
They parked their car and got out as the object passed directly overhead.
“As it did we both witnessed the solid black outline of an equilateral diamond – a small white running light in the center and at each tip with an oversized, amber-colored, seemingly directional (forward to forward-down) light at its nose and a significantly dimmer light on its tail. The three lights from wingtip to wingtip constantly strobed in a right-to-left direction as it moved away from us.”
The object was silent as it passed over and disappeared behind the tree line. . . .
