Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

August 26th 2006 : Ankeny Airfield, Iowa

Ankeny Airfield, Iowa Object With Lghts In A Circular Pattern

Date: August 26, 2006
Time: Around 9:30 or 10:00 p.m.

Message: I've always been skeptical about supposed UFO sightings until last night. I was driving down Interstate 35 through Ankeny into Des Moines, IA around 9:30 or 10pm on Saturday, August 26th. As I was coming up on the Ankeny Airfield I saw what I thought was an airplane coming in to land. I watched it for a while expecting it to descend but the longer I watched it the more I realized that it wasn't moving. It had flashing bright white lights in a circular pattern and so I thought that maybe it was a balloon of some sort or a tower. As we actually passed it, I could see it much more clearly because of the lights. It was hovering maybe a hundred feet above the ground immediately off the interstate and it was black and triangular. I could even see the texture of it. It had lights on each corner and they were flashing in succession. It was maybe 4 or 5 feet thick. I watched the object for probably a total of 2 minutes.

I was a little "weirded out" but decided that I had never heard of a triangular UFO and laughed it off. When I arrived at my destination, I told the whole story to a friend who told me that he had heard of flying triangles being spotted. We drove back to take a better look only to find no trace of the object! I'm surprised that I have heard no news of this, as I'm sure anything unidentified flying near an airport would be tracked to death these days, but I know I definitely saw something out of the ordinary!

Thank you to the witness for the report.
