A Texas witness at Gainesville reported an “entire block filled with people” watched a large, triangle-shaped UFO that moved low over her neighborhood about 11 p.m. on June 26, 2014, according to testimony in Case 57403 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was returning home from work and traveling along Tyler Street in Gainesville when she noticed the entire block filled with people looking up into the sky and talking about a UFO.
“Many took footage on cell phones,” the witness stated. “The lights were lined up horizontally, and then right before it disappeared, the lights instantly lined up vertically as if the object turned on its side and then sped away.”
The witness said the object was very large.
“Looked like a solid object larger than a plane. No feelings other than awe.”
Gainesville is a city in and the county seat of Cooke County, TX, population 16,002.
Texas MUFON is investigating. Texas has a current UFO Alert Rating of 3 with a high number of recent reports nationally.

I DON’T KNOW WHY I HAVE BEEN SO LUCKY TO SEE AT LEAST FOUR DIFFERENT UFO SIGHTINGS, ONE TIME MYSELF AND FOUR OTHER VETERANS SAW A WHOLE FLEET OF ABOUT THIRTY OR MORE UFOS GOING ACROSS THE SKY AT TEN O’CLOCK AT NIGHT, THEY WERE ALL SUPER BRITE ORANGE, KIND OF WALNUT SHAPED, three of them were Iin a triangle shape, and spinning, they were all flying in a perfectly strait formation and didn’t make a sound, they were flying from the east (Boynton bch.florida) going in a north westerly direction, we must have been watching them for at least thirty minutes, the kids that were playing in the next yard were laughing and saying look the aliens are here! The veterans I was with didn’t even want to say the word ufo, we were all in shock, especially when they all went behind a cloud that was about five miles away and all disapeared one by one like there was some kind of porthole they went through.This is only one of the encounters that I have had.I thankyou for listening, I don’t tell many people about these things because I don’t want them to think I’m crazy.That night I wrote an e mail to the local news and they didn’t even aknowledge me. Thankyou have a good night. Clark casas
First contact will probably occur very soon.
Where’s the video? Would love to watch it.
the photo in your article is not from case 57403 in texas but rather case 57407 from new jersey.
Now this does look like Chinese lanterns to me.
UFO / ET is a government psyop to support their big bang theory nonsense. There are no planets with life in space anywhere, and NASA has been looking since the 1960s.
I will admit I have seen with my own eyes a triangle shaped craft, that was silent, and moved slowly. It was the day before Michelle Obama came to Dallas, about 7 months ago. It was at night and it was over Skillman/Abrams area. When I saw it, I had just got out of my truck and was in the Walmart parking lot. It was low enough that I could make out its shape and three round surfaces, one at each corner of the craft. From my perspective, it looked large (about 50 yards across) That is an estimate because it’s so difficult to get a frame of reference since it’s difficult to tell how high it was.
When I saw it, I kick myself for not immediately grabbing my phone and taking a photo. But I hesitated as I tried to make out more details of it. By the time I got my camera app running and took a photo the cafe was too far in the distance to make it out. (I regret that, but at least I know what I saw)
It was silent, and moved very slow but steady. I am an Air Force Vet and was trained as an Avionic Tech for F-15’s and F-22’s, so I’m well aware of the technology we had up until I got out 11 years ago. My opinion is the craft was either a blimp like craft (but not the shape of a typical blimp) but like I sad the triangle shape had rounded edges and the corners were rounded as well. So it could of been an observation platform, and most likely unmanned, but that is just my opinion.
I don’t doubt they use blimp type craft either high altitude on low to observe silently, so UFO? Yes. Extraterrestrial? NO SUCH THING. But the technology is more than available for what I saw, but they haven’t yet admitted they use this type of craft, but that means nothing as why would they admit it?
even i`m witness of this triangle-shaped UFO. there is light lighting at the bottom , flying low. it got disappear within a sec with a lighting fast speed. such a horrible experience. incident happened in india.
I witnessed a large triangular ship hovering with a low hum around 1986/87 at night when I was in my back yard swimming. I was so awestruck I didn’t even think to get my dad. I was around 12 years old.
For years I thought maybe I imagined it until 1997 I met a guy whom I became close friends with. He had a serious fascination with aliens, so I asked him why. Having a feeling I was going to hear something similar to what I had seen, I drew an image of my memory.
He grew up in Florida and described an incident from around the same time period when him and a bunch of friends were having a bonfire and heard a low hum. He described exactly the same thing as I had witnessed: a low flying triangular ship, approximately the length of two football fields and one field widthwise moving at a very slow clip.
