2005 UFO: Triangular-Shaped Craft

Columnist Cheryl Costa shares the account of a New York State MUFON investigator who experienced a UFO first hand

UFO investigators usually receive their stories well after they happen, however this UFO investigator observed a triangular-shaped craft first hand.

It was near midnight on a Saturday during August of 2005 in Wilson, NY. Albert, a certified MUFON investigator, was tinkering in his garage workshop. Suddenly, he heard a loud whining sound in the vicinity of his garage. Albert said that his personal workshop is well equipped. Being late at night, Albert wasn’t taking any chances and walked outside holding a rechargeable 3 million candlepower spotlight. He searched around, but saw nothing amiss, until he looked above his garage.

“I looked up to the right side of my garage directly overhead and saw a triangular shaped craft,” he said. “I was so dumbfounded that I didn’t turn my flashlight on to take a closer look at it.”

He said the craft was so close that if he had a pole from his the barn, he could have easily reached it. Albert described the craft as approximately 12 feet by 12 feet by 12 feet for all three sides. It had three red lights, one in each corner of the triangle and a white light in the center, approximately 12 inches in diameter. He said the white light was not bright. He assumed that it might be some sort of clearance light similar to what small aircrafts have. He then explained that he could not make out the sides, color or top of the craft in terms of texture and size.

Finally, after hovering overhead for nearly 15 minutes, Albert cecalled that the craft rotated and maneuvered across his neighbors’ property flying over the top of their tool shed. He said that the craft was able to maneuver over short trees in the back yard. The craft moved from his the back yard to his neighbors’. He reported that the craft came within three to four feet of the ground at times.

Finally, the craft flew up the street, into the night sky and out of sight.
