A Florida witness at Palm Harbor reported watching a hovering, boomerang-shaped UFO with three bright white lights, according to testimony in Case 63122 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness and his wife as a passenger were driving northbound along East Lake Road and approaching a stop light when the object was first seen on February 5, 2015.
“I looked up at approximately 70 degrees and noticed a series of three bright, white lights,” the witness stated. “There were no red aircraft lights.”
As the witness vehicle moved toward the object, trees obstructed their view. But another 40 yards later, they saw the object again.
“The object reappeared approximately at the same location where it was first sighted, indicating it had not moved from the point where it was first sighted 10 seconds before.”
The object again seemed to be hovering in a stationary position in the sky under 500 feet and less than 500 feet from the witness.
“There were no flashing or colored lights. There was no fuselage, only a boomerang-shaped wing with a white light at the apex and one on each wing tip.”
The witness moved when the light changed and they circled back in about three minutes only to see that the object was gone.
“I probably could have subtended the object with my extended hand. This is not a familiar flight path. It was dark except for street lights and a full moon which did not interfere with the sighting, however, it may have served to back light the object and make the silhouette of the wing easy to see. The lights were large in proportion to the actual wing they appeared affixed to, making the proportions different than a passing aircraft. It was over in about 10 seconds or less, but it was really cool.”
Palm Harbor is a community in Pinellas County, Florida, population 57,439.

Hi! I just saw an UFO just like that. Boomerang shaped, all black. It had no lights or propeller or turbine that I could see. Last afternoon, 4 of june, at 16:45, my plane by Avianca Company had just departed from Guarulhos Airport in SP – Brazil, and was still going up. I saw the UFO flying parallel to the plane in the opposite direction.
Hi, Mr. Marsh,
I just saw an UFO just like that from the article: http://www.examiner.com/article/boomerang-shaped-ufo-makes-three-passes-over-monterey-california.
The only difference was that it had no lights on, probably because I saw it during the day.

I guess I should share it with people that also saw, so that they know they are not the only ones.
