Triangle UFO photographed low over Virginia

A Virginia witness at Charlottesville reported watching and photographing a triangle-shaped UFO that briefly hovered and moved away at a fairly low altitude, according to testimony in Case 76512 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and her husband were driving home along Barracks Road when her husband pointed out an object in the sky saying, “That is not a regular airplane,” about 9 p.m. on May 21, 2016.

“I looked out the window and stopped in the road when I saw it was hovering almost slightly above us,” the witness stated.“Distance cannot be determined – maybe 2,500 feet above.”

The witness described the object.

“It had several bright, white lights, some flashing, others remained constant. Intuitively, we sensed that it sensed us and perhaps saw us stop our car in the middle of road, to which it then hovered for at least 10 seconds. Then it continued on a low altitude path.”

The witness wondered what they were looking at.

“My first instinct was that it is an advance government aircraft and I felt thrilled at witnessing the technology being conveyed to our sight. We turned around and watched it, and I took a quick photo with my camera phone, that unfortunately did not do it justice, but shows two bright, white lights as it continued on its path away from us. In the picture there are buildings, and above one building, you can see the two white lights.”

    I saw triangle-lit craft 1989 SLC. Nearby SLC airport #2. After midnight, socked in fog, authorities seeded the fog. Common practice there and it works. Doesn’t typically attract ufos. Silent. Maneuvering unlike Anything else in the sky. Hello, even dragsters can’t do what I witnessed

    I have seen these same triangles in Ca. They are very hard to see ass the skin bends or projects light through itself, theres usually pairs very low and MOST IMPORTANT OVER POWER LINES- THEY ALSO MAKE A DISTINCT SOUND SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A MICROWAVE AND DISHWASHER VERY LOW BUT DISTINCT– THE DOGS WILL BARK AS THEY NEAR AND I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED AT 200 FT AWAY AND IT EMITS SOME SORT OF FREQUENCY—- THEY ARE SHAPED IN A TRIANGLE WITH A LITTLE TRIANGLE IN FRONT OF THE BIGGER TRIANGLE OR BODY OF THE PLANE
