An Indiana witness at Jamestown reported watching a triangle-shaped UFO fly low overhead after watching other odd lights in the sky on March 12, 2014, according to testimony in Case 54650 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving to her mother's home about 11:30 p.m. along Highway 100 south when a star-like object in the sky was first noticed.
"I had seen this same 'star' a few months before and asked my sister and mom what it was," the witness stated. "My mom said it looked like an airplane but then realized it had to be a planet since it was stationary yet bigger than a star. I didn't think much of it driving home but I decided to be daring. As I pulled into my mom's driveway I stopped diagonally halfway in her driveway and halfway in the road facing my headlights directly toward the object in the sky and I flashed my brights twice. Right after the second time flashing my brights, the object disappeared and seemed to turn into a very small object (like a small plane) and slowly flew away. It changed from a planet-like changing color orb to an aircraft four times smaller that had a faint blinking red light."
The witness then entered her mother's house.
"My mom arrived at the house around 11:50 p.m. and I invited her to look out of the back French doors to see if the planet-like object would show up again..The night sky was clear of clouds but it did have an occasional plane flying normal routes above."
The two did not have to wait long.
"About 30 seconds after looking out of the back doors we both witnessed a huge triangle-shaped aircraft that flew directly over our house. We watched in shock scrambling to try to get our phones/cameras to take a picture. I got an iPhone video but you can't even see the moon, better yet a flying object. The object was at least as big as a large commercial aircraft, maybe a lot bigger depending on how low it actually was flying. It was flying around half the speed of a commercial aircraft and it was flying extremely low compared to all of the other planes/ helicopters I've seen."
The witness got a good look at the undercarriage of the triangle-shaped object.
"The craft color blended in with the dark black night sky. It had a red (non -flashing) light in the middle or front bottom of the craft - with white pulsating/flashing lights on the two back corners of the triangle. The white lights were flashing or pulsating slightly out of sync but they kept blinking in a steady pattern. And it seemed to have really, really small pinpoint-like white lights outlining the craft making it obvious that it was a triangle and not a cigar shape with two wings like an airplane. It flew directly from north to south and it disappeared around two to three minutes later into the tree line."
The object was not seen again. No photos or videos were submitted with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 13, 2014. The witness did provide one illustration of the object.
