UFO SIGHTING REPORT
October 31st 1999/2000
Fremont, California Triangular UFO
Date: October 31, 1999 or 2000 ?
Time: Between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Equilateral triangular.
Full Description of event/sighting: This sighting occurred when I was living in the northern California Bay Area in the city of Fremont.
I was observing the moon through my Meade ETX-125 using a 6.2 or 6.7mm eyepiece (sorry I can't remember which). The field of view was quite narrow. As I was looking through the eyepiece, I suddenly saw 2 equal-sided (equilateral) triangular-shaped objects fly through the field of view, in an apparent "formation" with one object out in front and the second object flying at equal speed with position just to the "right side" (ie: above the lead object as viewed from my position) and a little behind the lead object by about half a length. Both objects appeared to be the same size. The objects were flying in the direction of one of their vertices (ie: one of their vertices was the "nose" of the craft, apparently). The objects flew from an ENE to WSW direction in the eyepiece, from my POV. The objects were in complete focus and appeared black, but this could have been due to the backlighting from the moon's surface, silhouetting the objects. I did not observe any lights on or near the objects. Both triangles together took up about maybe 15% of the field of view, were quite distinct, and it required a little over 2 seconds or so for them to cross from one edge of the field of view to the other edge and out of view.
I have no idea how far these objects were from me, but they must have been at quite some distance in order to see them so clearly and for them to take up that small amount of the field of view (depending on their size, of course). I couldn't tell how fast they were traveling or their size. There was no noise or any other event associated with the appearance of the objects.
I remember thinking several things at the time: I couldn't believe what I had just witnessed; I was really excited; and I wished I had had a camera. I also couldn't believe what the odds must be for me to see this while viewing the moon through a narrow field of view, all of this happening on Halloween night. (NO, this is NOT a hoax!)
I would like to hear from anyone else who has had similar sightings or if someone knows what these objects might be.
Thank you to the person for sending in the report.
