Witnesses driving through Bethlehem, NH, said traffic around them was slamming on their brakes to get a look at a triangle-shaped UFO with three white lights hovering under 1,000 feet overhead about 5:32 p.m. on February 6, 2014, according to testimony in Case 53945 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was driving near dusk when the "odd white lights" were seen hovering between 500 and 1,000 feet overhead.
"Several other drivers noticed and pulled over and slammed on their brakes," the witness stated. "We continued driving, however, to try to get to a better spot."
The witness drove closer to the object.
"You could see three distinct white lights forming a triangle shape with a faint triangular outline that blended in with the sky, but you could tell there was something there."
The witness described the object's movement.
"The object hovered in place for maybe a minute, and then it shot up vertically into the air at an incredible speed, ascending maybe 30,000 feet in half a second. It then made an abrupt right angle turn northerly and disappeared."
