UFO Sightings

Huge black triangle UFO

This story was submitted to the site by Matua from Mt Maunganui New Zealand.
We live in Papamoa and one night my son and I are driving to his high school basketball game at ASB stadium. It's one of the last games of the night, in the middle of winter and I am the passenger because my son has his learner's permit and wants to drive everywhere.

Anyway I am tired after my long day at work, I don't even want to go to basketball and we are almost at the stadium when this giant black triangle, with orange orbs in each corner comes right down in front of us, but hovering above us, just like in the movies. I can't believe what I am seeing, it is huge.

Then my son asks, can you see that dad? "I sure can". "What is it?" And of course I don't want to say UFO, I can't even believe what I am seeing, so something lame like "it's a plane". I am looking for other traffic in the hopes they see it too, but this 100km/hr, well-lit expressway is empty.
My son starts reaching for his phone in his pocket to take pictures, but he is a Learner driver and driving 100k an hour so I tell him to keep his hands on the wheel. I don't have my phone and refuse to believe what I am seeing.

Then the giant black triangle up and disappears, as quickly as it appeared. When we got home I googled pictures of a triangle UFO and found pictures of it. Now if you google this, they look like red lights in the corner, but this was close enough that I noticed the lights are orange, not red. And they have a glowing energy, they aren't lights. And it is huge and it moved so fast and silent.

I am forever changed. I obviously don't tell everyone what we saw cause that's just crazy talk. But we are not alone.

Have you ever used a celestial telescope, if you have, then you would understand why it is highly unlikely to get a photo of anything flying across the sky, if your scope was focused on mars and something flew across your field of vision you probably wouldn't even notice it and if you were taking a picture it would probably be a complete blurr.

I'd suggest it best not to assume things about me, especially not when it comes to understanding of the amateur astronomy sector......  Yes, I have EXTENSIVELY used scopes - from smaller Goto's to very large ones, along with all manner of other smaller scopes and binoculars.  I used to be half owner of a large (and awesome) Meade Goto, and at that time was an active member of an astronomy club.  I'm not currently in that situation (too many hobbies, some had to suffer) but I keep in touch and still go to the odd club night.  Back in the 90's, I taught astronomy at a large adult education c...

Yep, you're right on the money!  For many years, I worked for the "largest US defense contractor" and they have locations, programs and contracts all over the world. What better place to test out a new version of a stealth like craft? LoL

I didn't assume anything about you, I asked you.

You need to phrase your questions differently, if you want them to come across as sincere. Unless you don’t want that.  Your post really did not look much like a question at all. I’m sure that you can see that. Or is this a bad assumption by me?

I simply asked him had he ever used a celestial scope, I didn't assume that he never had.

  Looks like a question to me,cant you tell it is without a question mark.

I was referring to the way they phrased the post, they weren’t really asking a question.
Comment icon #27 Posted by ChrLzs 5 years ago
Yes, and the lack of a question mark is, in part, why he/I made the observations...  BTW, that question from you really needs a question mark...   So ... I guess it's hardly surprising that you imagine them to be there when they are not. Besides that - why would the poster ask that question, other than to pretend higher knowledge?  (Calling them 'celestial telescopes', btw, tells you that the poster is the one who hasn't much experience.  That term is not in common use.) The fact is, that even after his latest posts, he still hasn't addressed a single fact that I (amongst others) posted.... [More]

My sister, her late husband and my niece and nephew saw a silent triangle shaped craft fly over their house one night. It was huge, moving slowly and the only way to really see it was, it was blocking out the stars. I could go into more detail, but I won't as people in these forums just want proof or it's just a "story." By the way, I read somewhere that a study done a while back showed that trained astronomers saw  unidentified objects and being trained well, could not identify them, and at a rate higher than the general populace, but they just don't report them as much because it could be d...
