Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular.

HBCC UFO Research Note: I did call and spoke to the eyewitness, as always it was a nice conversation over what was seen.

Full Description of event/sighting: I witnessed an unexplained aircraft in flight while driving southward on Liberty Road, shortly after crossing Salem Heights Road. The object was in a perfect triangular shape, there were three white, flashing lights that almost flashed as quick as a strobe; flashing much too fast to be an airplane and there was no red or green lights visible to indicate it was an airplane. Near this location it is very rare to see an airplane from the airport, and after viewing the meteor shower later that night, none of the airplanes could even compare to what I had seen earlier. Between these three flashing lights there was no visible craft that could be seen, just the flashing lights in their perfect triangle, even though it was right after sunset when there were still a few moments of light remaining which would have allowed me to identify a plane or helicopter.

The craft made a slow, tilted turn above the trees, for a few seconds I was able to maintain a clear view of the object before it disappeared behind the trees while I was driving along Liberty, indicating the object was fairly low, but still high enough to be well above the trees in it's direction, which to me at the time was southeast not more than a half mile away. I tried to keep view of it while driving, but at that point after it turned, the object moved further to the southeast, it became just one flashing light in the distance, maybe five miles away. After fighting the urge to follow further south to keep view of it, I had to return to my home nearby off of Liberty. I still cannot explain what I saw, although I after a little research of pictures on the internet, the best comparison of what I saw would be the UFO picture from Hoboken, NJ May 9, 1984. Obviously, the lights are not flashing, but if the were it would be almost identical to my sighting. Please let me know if you would like more information, please leave a message on the number listed above, and please keep my personal information confidential. Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
