Low triangle fly-by over Minnesota while witness watches 'clump of 8' lights

A Minnesota witness reports watching a "clump of 8 or more lights" in the sky when "out of nowhere" a large, black triangle UFO "glided from across the street" about 40 feet over the neighbor's house on October 20, 2010, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident began when the witness was watching multiple lights and a neighbor joined in.

"I noticed a clump of 8 or more lights in the far distance and at first thought they were stars," the witness stated. "Then the lights started moving in and out from the center light, but they were jumping instead of actually moving (best way I can describe it). My neighbor came outside to smoke a cigarette, and I asked her to look at what I was seeing because I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me. She confirmed what I was seeing, and within 5 minutes we noticed that the group of lights were moving closer and closer to our location."

The neighbor and a boyfriend went inside - and the original witness then saw the triangle UFO. The witness was just 50 or 60 feet away.

"It had absolutely no lights on it, and made no noise what so ever. I literally stared at it for about 5 seconds. It was moving slower than an airplane and I couldnt believe what I was seeing. I jumped up to try to keep watching it, but could no longer see it. It had white or grey markings on its bottom that were not numbers, or letters but half ring shapes."

No town name was mentioned in the public portion of the MUFON report, which was filed on October 21, 2010. No images or video were provided with the report.

Minnesota is a current UFO DEFCON 5 rating, with low UFO activity.

MN, October 20, 2010, MUFON Case # 26010.

I was outside smoking a cigarette looking up at the stars because it was very clear out. I noticed a clump of 8 or more lights in the far distance and at first thought they were stars. Then the lights started moving in and out from the center light, but they were jumping instead of actually moving(best way I can describe it).

My neighbor came outside to smoke a cigarette, and I asked her to look at what I was seeing because I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me. She confirmed what I was seeing, and within 5 minutes we noticed that the group of lights were moving closer and closer to our location. She went inside to get her boyfriend, and he also saw what we were seeing. I tried to record it on my camcorder on my phone, but couldn't get it to show because it was too dark.

My neighbors went in, and I sat on my front step watching it get closer and closer. Then out of nowhere this very big black triangle glided from across the street and right over my other neighbors house only about 40 ft. in the air (heading towards the direction of the group of lights).

It had absolutely no lights on it, and made no noise what so ever. I literally stared at it for about 5 seconds. It was moving slower than an airplane and I couldnt believe what I was seeing. I jumped up to try to keep watching it, but could no longer see it. It had white or grey markings on its bottom that were not numbers, or letters but half ring shapes.

At first I thought it was like a stealth fighter, but It was moving entirely too slow, and made no sound what so ever. I know my eyes werent playing tricks on me because I was no further than 50 or 60 ft. away from it, and had to turn my head in order to follow it. I was very scared and banged on my neighbors window, but it didnt appear again.

I continued to watch the group of lights for a little over an hour after the triangle appeard. They didnt move any further in the distance, but were very high, and almost above my neighbors house. This isnt my 1st encounter with unexplained objects and lights in the sky, or other things I have experienced as a kid, but it is my 1st time seeing the black triangle. I researched it online today, but some peoples description of it doesnt match what I saw. It was almost like it was made not to be seen in the dark. But I definently saw it, and am now a believer of these triangles.

    Where's the picture? Until I see a picture I say BUNK!

    The huge silent black triangles exist... I've seen one close up... HUGE, SILENT, capable of accelerating to incredible speed instantly from a mere crawl. It HAS to be antigravity technology.

    Yea everyone has a camera phone/iphone..they didnt even try to get a shot (although it woulda sucked at night light levels) bunk..

    But then if an image was provided you'd say that the image was just a hoax too. Astronauts, politicians, police, and even military personnel have said they have seen UFO's that don't appear to be from planet Earth. There are UFO sightings that date back to 1500 BCE. UFO's are depicted in ancient art. The point is, in my view, I will not jump to the conclusion that any of this is "bunk".

    Pity you didnt have night vision, as it probably would have been the best footage ever! Talk about a close encounter...if he actually could make out inscriptions on the craft...i probably wouldnt sleep for a week!

    I too, saw a triangle back in the late 80's. This tri. was not black though, and it was just getting into dusk, so I clearly saw it in a half light position. When you hear the term, a life changing event, was the very least.
    This object was witnessed by myself, several in-laws,
    and my ex. To this day, my ex. is the only person to acknowledge and will discuss with me. No one else that was there will even talk about it. Talk about denial,
    and you won't even get close. To finish this up, this object was no more than a thousand feet up, and well
    over the same in size, totally silent, three lights at each
    corner with one large single head light, and as it slowly
    turned away again, sparks were coming out of the rear
    of it, and in the middle? Not like a sparkler or anything like that, but like ejecting a short distance out from behind, and then falling vertically? More like a hundred or two at a time. Best way to describe was like a light falling snow, a flurrie perhaps, but sparks. Not my first
    UFO sighting, but my most undeniable, most frightning, never have I felt so fearful, or since life altering event that I still think about it, if not every day, every other day and I don't expect that to change..
    Regards and Peace Out!

    The best footage I know about of one of these triangles was taken back in 1983 during the Hudson Valley UFO flap. Reliable sources say this thing went over a nuclear power plant and the security cameras recorded i as it want over the plant. One of the security guards walked undeneath it and was able to keep up. Meaning it was going about 5 mph. They said it took almost 15 min to pass over. Which means this thing was a least a mile long and able to still stay in the air while only traveling at 5mph. BTW the Federal Government came in and took all the footage away. Of course. Over 10,000 people saw it.

    Well at least we know its not stealth fighters or bombers, those have been around for years and why would they still be testing them?
    Also its not very stealthy when everyone see's the thing flying overhead with a bunch of lights all over it.
    Then again, aliens or the government could get away with it because I am sure they know that the public doesn't believe in things like this.

    Just because there are more cameras than ever before in the world does not give a person a better chance of getting a great UFO photo. Phone/point and shoot cameras are not capable of taking night time photo with ANY clarity or definition. All you get is a photo where people say, "I wish it wasn't so fuzzy or just some nondescript lights". Night photography takes specialized equipment which few people own. an object 50 feet away, at night, would take at least a 110mm to 200mm lens with an aperture of f/2 and an ISO rating of 5000. A moving object with a 110mm lens would need at the least a shutter speed of 1/200th of a sec.

    talk about strange live near Brownsdale Mn. a small town 40 mi west of rochester, mn. The 20 oct I was deliverig the weekly shopper at night. About 11:30 i pulled on to a gravel road and was blinded by an electric pole sparking. Only it sparking about half way up and about 3 ft away from the pole. Then I stopped . It was so bright! Like a thousand welding rods at the same time. I started to pull forward thinking a coon or something had tried to climb between wires. Up by the crossbar it sparked again. This time 6 or seven times. Thats too weird to be an animal. One spark is enough. I turned around back to the crossroads and stayed 10 min or so. all quiet drove back to check out the pole. nothing. no burned weeds. no char marks on the pole. so continued on my way. very strange. 45min later. pull into brownsdale. the whole town is out of lights. call utilities. they know about it already.. Now I'm north of brownsdale on gravel road. turn corner and darn near run over power lines laying across road. go back the way I came meet utility truck. tell him about pole. thats not on this circuit. those lines dot feed the town. so I tell him about the lines on the road. they go work on that and i finish my route.

    it bothered me so much i went back the next day to check pole in daylight. there was nothing odd about that that i could see. by the way the lines that were down were nine mile straight north of that pole. i saw no lights in the sky or anything though.

    My nephew and his father, my brother-in-law. were traveling down a rural gravel road in Missouri. They spotted a light in the distance, that they thought was a headlight, from a car, but soon noticed that it was in the sky. Soon after they noticed the light, it approached their vehicle, very quickly. As it came near the truck they were in, the truck lights began to flicker, and the truck learched forward, cutting out, and then the truck stopped completely. The craft was very close to them, my nephew reported to me. Then as it moved slowly away from them, their truck lights came back on, and they were again able to put the truck into motion again. They both watched as the craft, as he described it, took off to the sky at a seemingly impossible speed. They didn't make any report of this close encounter with the UFO, and seemingly didn't tell anyone about it for quite some time. He was very hesitant to share his experience with me.
