A Minneapolis, MN, witness reported watching a triangle-shaped UFO at the roof top level, according to testimony in Case 52517 closed as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle (UAV) March 5, 2014, from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

This case was investigated by Minnesota MUFON State Director Susan Birttnen and was originally reported on November 30, 2013. The witness was getting out of a friend's vehicle when the object was first seen about midnight on November 28, 2013.

"I noticed a flying object that was moving pretty slow," the witness stated. "It had a beautiful array of lights - that's how I first noticed it. I first thought it was a plane, but it didn't have a tail. It was just a triangular object flying."

The witness was upset.

"I got freaked out. We tried to follow it but it vanished."

The witness also saw other unidentified lights.

"I saw multiple other lights around also. And right when we got back after chasing it, we couldn't seem to find it. Another flying thing flew right where it was. Also pretty low to the ground, but moving much faster. Might have been a plane. But it was also not going towards the airport. I'm just a bit freaked out. I don't know what's going on."

Investigator Birttnen interviewed the witness for object details.

"The object's size was between 11-30 feet," Birttnen stated. "It had a black surface with white and red lights that flashed sequentially. A second flying object flew overhead, but was higher up and moving faster."

The case file indicates that the first object was flying under 500 feet. Birttnen closed the case - including both objects sighted - as an Unknown UAV.
