Low flying triangle UFO photographed by Pennsylvania witness

A Pennsylvania witness at Valley Forge reported watching and photographing a triangle-shaped UFO hovering over trees in a nearby park, according to testimony in Case 62584 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident occurred on January 7, 2015, while the witness was driving home from work along northwest-bound Gulph Road through Valley Forge Park heading toward Phoenixville and away from King of Prussia.

“I noticed three very bright lights just over the tree line in the distance about the time I passed the Washington Memorial Chapel,” the witness stated. “The lights were side-by-side.”

The witness first thought the lights were an airplane, but as she drove closer, the lights appeared to be too bright for an airplane.

“I actually started to think that maybe they had built a tower in the park with lights at the top of it, but I knew that wasn’t logical because I would have seen this tower/monument by now. I also started to realize that whatever it was – it wasn’t stationary. It was moving, but slowly.”

Once the witness had an unobstructed view, she began taking photographs.

“As I got closer it was more apparent to me that this wasn’t a plane or a helicopter. I considered pulling over, but had someone behind me. It was also very dark and 17 degrees outside. But after my car had finally passed the lights I couldn’t describe anything beyond that because of how bright the three lights were. I decided to look back at it out my driver side window.”

Now the witness was able to see that the lights were “literally just above the tree line and shaped like a triangle.”

The case was investigated by Pennsylvania MUFON Chief Investigator William Weber who closed it as an Unknown. Weber stated in his report that the object was flying very low.

“At some point,” Web stated, “it passed above and to the left of her, approximately 100 to 150 feet in altitude.” But photo analysis of the object was inconclusive.

    I just want to go on record to state that I have had what I believe was a UFO sighting about 1978. It was in Doyle, CA.

    It was very real to me and I have no reason to doubt my experience. There were (my memory reference) 4 points of light. Three were close to the mountain maybe 3 to 5 miles distant and one was over my head but at about 11:30 position from my point of view looking north and slightly west. The lights were white but did not seem to have a directional beam. Rather they just were a powerful white emanation from each object that was not visible since it was past midnight and very dark.. At some point the lights simultaneously switched off. There seemed to be an awareness of a mindful decision to turn off the lights and leave the area. I sensed there was that mental communication between all four objects.

    There was no sound, at any time, being generated by these objects. I had been an aircraft mechanic both in the military and in civilian life and would have known if these were from conventional aircraft that were man-made.

    There was an eyrie sense of the unknown that was slightly discomforting to me. I am not easily influenced to have much of a fear reaction to unusual occurrences, short of a feeling of strangeness that I cannot describe.

    When I think of this experience it brings back the sense of eeriness and the vivid sense that it was definitely out of the normal range of things I have experienced in life.

    I would welcome another encounter because I am vividly curious about the realness of this experience. I also have a sense of sort of an electric ozone smell that is not really a smell but is a something that is associated with my memory of the encounter.

    Sheila knows that all UFOs are US military-industrial complex conspiracies.
    (What the hell is a “TR3B”?)

    “TR3B” is the purportedly “top secret” military design of a huge triangular hybrid / semi-zeppelin type aircraft, that uses STEALTH technology and a highly secret “lighter than air / helium” gas, to silently float / glide over hostile enemy airspace–while carrying THREE TIMES the military troops AND combat hardware effortlessly. It’s alleged this “TR3B” is HUGE–about the size of two football fields.

    It’s purported that Area 51 has been experimenting with the creation of these huge semi-zeppelin type aircraft for over 50 years. To be fair–designs for the SR-71 were sketched out in the early 1940s.

    The problem about this “TR3B”? Triangle UFO witnesses confirm what they saw, takes off from zero MPH to instant out of sight speed; it’s logically doubted there’s anything in the Area 51 toy bin that can do that.

    It’s suspected the “leaked” information about this “TR3B” is the usual military disinformation propaganda that is being used to dillude and muddle any actual UFO information.

    In the later part of summer going into fall during the year of 1985. Area northern New Jersey, Hudson County. UFO was sited over J F Kennedy Blvd. This craft was of a rust brown color and it was early afternoon. The craft in question had to be the size of at least 6 to 8 blimps that you see at stadiums during football games. From what I understood it was videod by more than a hand full of people. The UFO was moving from the north to the south. I am trying to find others that saw this when it happened. Also I am wondering why at the time that it happened it was not on any UFO sites that document these sitings.

    The recent sightings of three blobs of lights in a triangle formation traveling silently and slowly in Pennsylvania reminded me of the UF O sightings which I and hundreds of New York upstate in the mid Hudson Valley saw in the 1980s! Compare the Hudson Valley and Westchester County UF O sightings.
