'Black Triangle' Sightings on the Rise
    #3093460 - 09/05/04 01:06 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Taken from Yahoo News...

I find it particularly interesting that this was on Space.com. Usually NASA is tight-lipped about UFOs in general.

?Black Triangle? Sightings on the Rise
Thu Sep 2, 4:30 PM ET
By Leonard David
Senior Space Writer
SPACE.com

They have become legendary in UFO circles. Huge, silent-running Flying Triangles have been seen by ground observers creeping through the sky low and slow near cities and quietly cruising over highways.

The National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), has catalogued the Triangle sightings, sifting through and combining databases to take a hard look at the mystery craft. Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, NIDS is a privately funded science institute with a strong research focusing on aerial phenomena.The results of their study have just been released and lead to some unnerving, still puzzling conclusions.

The study points out: The United States is currently experiencing a wave of Flying Triangle sightings that may have intensified in the 1990s, especially towards the latter part of the 1990s. The wave continues. The Flying Triangles are being openly deployed over and near population centers, including in the vicinity of major Interstate Highways.

Covert operations?

A key NIDS conclusion is that the actions of these triangular craft do not conform to previous patterns of covert deployment of unacknowledged aircraft. Furthermore, neither the agenda nor the origin of the Flying Triangles are currently known.

The years 1990-2004 have seen an intense wave of Flying Triangle aircraft, the study observes. Sifting through reports by hundreds of eyewitnesses, the NIDS assessment states that the behavior of the vehicles does not appear consistent with the covert deployment of an advanced DoD [U.S. Department of the Defense] aircraft.

Rather, it is consistent with (a) the routine and open deployment of an unacknowledged advanced DoD aircraft or (b) the routine and open deployment of an aircraft owned and operated by non-DoD personnel, suggests the NIDS study.

The implications of the latter possibility are disturbing, especially during the post 9/11 era when the United States airspace is extremely heavily guarded and monitored, the NIDS study explains. In support of option (a), there is much greater need for surveillance in the United States in the post 9/11 era and it is certainly conceivable that deployment of low altitude surveillance platforms is routine and open.

Open, even brazen

According to Colm Kelleher, NIDS Administrator, the newly completed quasi meta-analysis of Flying Triangles melds three major U.S. databases: NIDS, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and data collected by independent researcher, Larry Hatch, the creator and owner of one of the largest and most comprehensive UFO databases in the world.

Kelleher said, the analysis indicates that deployment of Flying Triangles is open, not covert, and involves low-flying, brightly lit aircraft routinely deployed over populated areas including cities and Interstate highways.

However, I cannot say whether these are U.S. Air Force aircraft. We simply don?t know, Kelleher told SPACE.com . But it does not appear to be consistent with the covert patterns of deployment we saw with the F-117 and B-2 prior to their acknowledgement. This is open, even brazen, he stated.

Stealth aircraft

For example, a perfunctory look at the how past DoD stealth aircraft programs were kept from public eye -- although eventually came to light -- is different from the patterns for the Flying Triangles.

Prior to acknowledgement of the F-117 and B-2 aircraft, only rare night time sightings occurred in the sparsely populated sections of Nevada, California and a few other states. Flying at low altitude over populated areas was rarely reported for the F-117 or B-2.

In contrast, the Flying Triangle deployment, especially during the 1990s, appears more consistent with the open and public operation of these aircraft, the study explains. The trend of open deployment of the Flying Triangles is not consistent with secret operation of an advanced DoD aircraft.

No attempt to hide

The database-driven study of the Flying Triangle shows the following patterns:

-- Sightings take place near cities and on Interstate highways
-- They are seen at low altitude in plain sight of eyewitnesses
-- They fly at extremely low speed or hover in plain sight of eyewitnesses
-- The vehicles sometime fly with easily noticeable bright lights -- either blinding white lights, or have bright disco lights that usually flash combinations of red, green or blue.

The NIDS study emphasizes that the flying of these vehicles may be more in harmony with an attempt to display or to be noticed. There appears to be little or no attempt to hide. That finding has led to a modification of an earlier NIDS hypothesis that the Triangles are covertly deployed DoD aircraft.

While it is too early to dismiss the previously published NIDS correlation between Triangle sightings and a subset of U.S. Air Force Bases, the apparent association with centers of population may point away from a covert program. Rather, it is consistent with routine and open deployment of an advanced aircraft, the NIDS study concludes.

Clustered on both coasts

During the ensuing years (2000-2004), NIDS received hundreds of reports from people in the United States and Canada reporting large triangular aircraft, often silent and often flying at very low altitude and at low air speed. In many cases, the objects were brightly lit. NIDS files also include reports of Flying Triangles from remote areas.

In mid 2004, NIDS reviewed its database that contains the locations of the Triangle sightings in the United States. The sightings of Triangles appear primarily adjacent to population centers and along Interstate Highways, with sightings clustered on both coasts.

NIDS has amassed almost 400 separate sightings of triangular/boomerang/wedge-shaped objects. Many of these craft are brightly lit, low flying, and traveling at unexpectedly low air speeds.

In earlier reports, NIDS outlined a tentative correlation between reported sightings of Triangles and the locations of Air Mobility Command and Air Force Materiel Command bases in the United States.

Like a Star Trek "uncloaking"

According to ground observers, the features of a Black Triangle are indeed impressive.

For example, the NIDS study includes the observation of a Port Washington Wisconsin person who encountered a large object that flew over her home at 500 feet altitude in October 1998. Her eyeing of the clear starry night was interrupted as the craft came into her field of view.

Suddenly this monstrosity came out of the blue, just like a Star Trek ?uncloaking?, no kiddingso quiet I couldnt believe it and so hugeno more than 500 feet or so up, and big enough to take up my field of sky vision, she reported.

Crude mathematics, the witness recounted, would make the vessel about 200 feet wide and 250 feet long.

Two camps

In wrapping up its look at the burgeoning number of Flying Triangle sightings in the United States, NIDS also took into account the work of writers and researchers delving into the topic both in the United States and abroad.

Those analyses fall into two camps: The Triangles are human-made, while the other says they are not.

In 2004 it is extremely difficult to distinguish between these two possibilities since the former option overlaps heavily with legitimate national security concerns, while in the absence of much more physical evidence, the latter option is not testable, the NIDS assessment concludes.





Here is one of the more famous photos of these craft:


They gained in popularity in the late 1980s with many sightings in Belgium, and then in the Hudson River Valley in the early 1990s. The silent black triangular craft, with their trademark lights on each corner, are one of the most commonly reported type of UFO.

I've seen one of those....on the same road that passes by an old Nike missle base.

Scared the shit out of me.

weird.
stuff like this totaly boggles my mind, because I start thinking about wether or not it's goverment, if it's alien. I mean chances are it's Canadian Military training, but maybe it's something really cool that i don't even know about?

Me and my friend saw a "ufo" once - it was off this highway in rural Missouri at about 3am. Just one light - and it was moving in this weird zigzag pattern. Strangest thing - I've never seen anything like it before. It wasnt an air plane (perhaps it was some experimental aircraft), wasnt a helicopter, wasnt a satellite, wasnt a spotlight, wasnt a reflection - it was a sphere of white light that was pretty far up in the sky and it moved very fast.

I dont want to claim it was alien - all I know is it was a ufo - unidentified flying object. who the fuck knows...

Nike missles....used to defend sensitive/vital areas from nuclear/air strike during the cold war.

Or not used, i should say.
Never heard of them? :confused:

the strangest thing to me, is ive heard next to nothing about this. yet i had a dream in which i saw ships similar to these in the sky battling.

the only reason thats odd is that i virtually never recall anything about any dreams i have.
not for many many years.

I've always wondered if these stealth crafts could be some sort of advanced technology used for spying on the U.S. by other countries? Possibly China? Japan? Russia? Who knows..

I've seen something, once. a couple summers ago.
four of us all saw the same thing, and agreed on what we were seeing at the time.
