Our UFO Black Triangle Sighting. Strange Objects In the Sky!

Black Triangle UFO


My Triangle Sighting.

I know many people won't believe this story of our sighting of an object in the night sky. It is the truth the whole truth. 1990 seem to be a strange year for us. We sold our old house and moved to the lake. Every evening I would go out and sit on the dock and look at the sky. The stars were bright and it was a beautiful quiet night. All I could hear were the frogs. One night as I sat down on the dock I noticed a bright light heading my way from west to east. It looked strange because we very rarely saw planes they just didn't fly our way. I yelled at my husband to come outside, by the time he got there the light was almost to the dock. It was gliding across the night sky going very, very slow without any sound and low in the sky. It flew right over the top of us we had to bend our heads back to look under it. It had three clear lights which did not shine out, moved across the sky like it was looking for something just above the tree tops. It was so large it darkened the sky and we could not see the stars.

I'm putting pictures on this hub that look something like what we saw. It was a large black triangle.

We never reported it to anyone and never got a picture, those were the days when we didn't have digital cameras all ready to go so we didn't have proof. We saw this in July right at the time the Oshkosh Fly-In was going on and I had wondered if it was the stealth bomber from the fly-in. I had heard that the bomber was in fly-in. Anyway, after seeing a picture of the stealth, I realized it wasn't what we saw. We could now say we had seen what we believe was a UFO.

Strange Flying Gliders.

The same summer I was outside lying on the lawn chair reading when something made me look up. There were three triangle objects they looked like hang gliders. They were a solid black not only black, but I couldn't see anyone flying them. They flew right over the top of me and were also low just above the trees. I don't know anything about gliders, but I believe there has to be a mountain or somewhere for them to start from we don't have that around here. They made not a sound though I wondered what caused me to look up and now wonder if there was a low sound I just didn't realize at the time. They were the mini-me of the big triangle. This was another UFO sighting on the same lake where we lived and the same summer.


Lights Above Our Car.

That December we went Christmas shopping to a larger city about 65 miles from us. It was crisp and cold the sky was clear with lots of stars, in the distance I could see a light it just seem to hang in the sky and looked a little strange, but I figured it was a plane. The road wasn't busy just us and a semi behind us that had been coming up close and acting like he was going to pass us. All at once, three lights near the car on my side and what looked like just above the windshield blinked on, one after another. I said to my husband: "Did you see that" Just as I said it three more lights blinked on his side of the car. The lights did not shine out and did not blind us. We could not see a real shape, but we also could not see the sky until the lights went out. Then just suddenly they were gone. The semi behind us never did pass us, he stayed right with us for the next 30 miles that we had to go. We figure he saw the lights and didn't want to be out on this dark empty highway alone.

Three Sightings in One Year.

This is our experience with UFOs. I have no idea what we have seen and I don't believe in our lifetime we will ever know. We have heard other stories of UFOs around here, but no one I know of saw what we saw, except of course the semi-driver. I guess this will always be the mysteries in our lives we will never be able to solve. I often wonder why so many sightings in one year.

Family Talking About UFOs

We had a family get together. We were talking UFO's and our son reminded us about the UFO's he saw when he was a teen, off the same dock where I had seen the UFO. He and his friend were fishing off the dock when a light came right at them. They ducked it scared the heck out of them. He said every time he runs into this old friend he talks about that light.

My sister-in-law also had a story. She was up late one night feeding her baby listening to the scanner. She heard the police say they were following a UFO. They lost it when it went into the lake. There is a big senior apartment complex by this lake. The next morning on the scanner some lady had called the police and said she saw a bright light come up from the lake. She lived in the apartment complex.

The UFO's seem to like the lakes. There are more stories I have heard from people here about UFO's by the lakes

July 2012

Did I take a picture of a UFO? I was outside trying to get a picture of the bluebird in the yard. He flew up on the power line and I took his picture. When I looked at the picture later I saw this strange white thing in the sky. I don't know what it is, there were no planes flying around that I heard. We don't get a lot of air traffic and we're in the country so any extra sound we usually hear. See the little white spot below the bird. I didn't put it there the sky was clear with no clouds. What is it? You be the judge.

I have seen craft like this in the Seattle area near Boeing Field on multiple occasions. I do not believe they are extraterrestrial. I simply believe they are technology the government isn't seeing fit to acknowledge at this time. I am deeply curious to know what they are. They hover slowly with no noticeable means to accomplish this. I have seen three at once hovering over and around Boeing Field in a triangular formation. I have also seen them separate and float along independently. This is amazing stuff and I would LOVE to know what kind of craft they are.

John M. Spezeski from Boston on April 09, 2015:

Great recount, I am new to the Hubpages sphere having signed up two weeks ago. I have a story of my own as well, it is very risky for me to talk about.

Dean russell on July 06, 2014:

This is creepy. Remember my story that I posted here in the comments 6 months ago about a strange light formation that i saw in december 2013? It's here published! It wasn't only me who saw it. Omg

moonlake (author) from America on April 08, 2014:

Hi Dean I'm not real sure what updates you want.

Dean Russell on April 08, 2014:


Dean Russell on March 02, 2014:

Still no updates?

Dean Russell on January 02, 2014:

I strongly believe that one day, all of us will finally discover what these things really are. Maybe in the next years to come, or maybe we won't even be there alive to witness everything.

moonlake (author) from America on December 26, 2013:

Dean Russell, Thanks you. If I ever see the UFO's again you can bet I will update this hub. I keep hoping one day I will.

Dean Russell on December 26, 2013:

It's me again. I have your website bookmarked in my iphone. I would like to be updated as much as possible regarding this matter.

moonlake (author) from America on December 23, 2013:

dean russell, I believe your right. Thanks for stopping by and telling your story.

dean russell on December 23, 2013:

I believe in you. I live here in the Philippines. I live alone and away from my family. It was a dark night of December, I was smoking outside my house when I looked at the sky I actually saw 4 lights quickly changing their formations and it seemed like it was a ship or something. It moved away and away until it was gone. I have always been curious what it was. I believe that there could be alien life out there, watching us, studying us.

moonlake (author) from America on September 09, 2013:

toptendeals, If you had seen this thing you would understand. It was a UFO who did it belong to? We will never know that in our life time. No one can explain why we're seeing these things. Our friend has always believed they are not from space but from the future. Maybe there is life under the ocean we don't know about and that's where they're from. I'm just doing some silly guessing.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Jason Benedict from Boca Raton, Florida on September 06, 2013:

I'm too much of a skeptic sadly. I heard once a civilization is advanced enough to travel far enough to reach new life it will have destroyed itself by then which is troubling to think about.

moonlake (author) from America on September 01, 2013:

Au fait, We will never forget the year of UFOs. Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for pin,vote and share.

C E Clark from North Texas on August 28, 2013:

Where have you been keeping this hub? I've not seen it before. Very interesting! Anything that you can't identify that flies is an unidentified flying object (UFO). I've seen a lot of strange things too, and I think living in a rural area has a lot to do with that.

Voted up, pinned to my 'Astronomy' board, voted up and interesting, and will share.

moonlake (author) from America on June 25, 2013:

Deborah-Diane, It was very interesting and something to tell. I did worry some when it came right over the top of us. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Deborah-Diane from Orange County, California on June 23, 2013:

Fascinating! I definitely believe that you saw a UFO because those letters simply stand for Unidentified Flying Object. What you saw was a flying object that you could not identify, and it apparently was not explained in your local news or by other sources. It certainly fits the definition to me. What it means, I do not know.

I recently heard a scientist say that our first contact from other planets will probably be the same way that we have contacted Mars ... using some type of robotics. It is possible that UFO's are these robotic machines that are sending photos and other information back to another planet, much like the Mars rovers send information back to earth.

The whole experience must have been very interesting for you!

moonlake (author) from America on April 21, 2013:

Paradise7, You could be right. Thank you so much for stopping by I appreciate it.

Paradise7 from Upstate New York on April 21, 2013:

Very interesting. No one has identified what you've seen yet? There are a couple of possible explanations that don't involve extraterrestrials. It is much more likely that they're ours, even though they are big and strangely shaped for an aircraft.

The nearest planet that we've discovered that can support life as we know it is about 20 million light years away. Even travelling at the speed of light (about 186,000 miles PER SECOND), it would take the aliens 20 million years to get here. Think about the logistics of that for a minute, and then think about which is more likely.

The universe is big; I'm with you in assuming that there is life on other planets, and that it has most probably developed into intelligent life, given parallel parameters for evolution.

I'm just not with you when it comes to being visited by other beings from very, very, very away. But then again, I've never had your experiences.

crazyhorsesghost, Thank you for stopping back by and thanks for the share and pin.

Subhas from New Delhi, India on April 20, 2013:

I am attracted to this subject since I am a kid and you have added another level to it.

Grant Handford from Canada on April 20, 2013:

Great article. I am totally into the whole ufo thing. I used to have recurring nightmares when I was 5 or 6 yrs old of me floating up into the sky and then outside there were these massive ships in the sky. Weird this is that these nightmares happened in the 60's when there wasn't any talk about massive ships 100's of yards across but now people report massive ships. Did it really happen to me? I don't know. Anyways great article. Will be sharing on Facebook and Pinterest.

whonunuwho from United States on April 20, 2013:

I wrote a hub entitled "UFO's I Have Known". You might like to read some time. whonu

whonunuwho from United States on April 20, 2013:

My friend what you have seen is now being more common. My wife and I, as well as her sister, in 1978, had a close viewing come over the house in the front yard, where we all stood. It seemed that you could reach up and touch the huge black triangle with pulsing lights. You could see the under belly with tubes and pipes that resembled what we have seen on star wars movies. We all forgot the incident until seventeen years later when we each remembered it all at once. Strange stuff we are subjected to sometimes, isn't it? Nice, well presented hub. whonu

Thomas Byers from East Coast , United States on April 20, 2013:

Shared and pinned. Great Hub.

Thomas Byers from East Coast , United States on April 20, 2013:

Your very welcome Moonlake. Yes if you ever see one you know. You just know. I believe 100 percent and I have for many years now.

moonlake (author) from America on April 20, 2013:

crazyhorsesghost, That is a true statement once you see one you will know it's not ours. Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate it.

moonlake (author) from America on April 20, 2013:

Peggy W, I'm pretty sure it wasn't one of ours. It was so big. Thanks for stopping by. I agree with you why on earth would we be the only planet with life.

Thomas Byers from East Coast , United States on April 19, 2013:

I have also seen UFO's that I knew did not come from this planet. Once you ever see one you know, really know that we are not alone. Out there some where they are watching. One day a UFO will land or crash and everyone will know. OP thanks for this hub. I really enjoyed it. Great job.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 19, 2013:

Whether you saw a real UFO or not, I don't doubt for a minute that they exist. It seems unlikely to me that we would be the only intelligent beings in the entire universe. The fact that they are visiting us means that they are probably more advanced than we are with regard to technology and space travel. Up and interesting votes.

moonlake (author) from America on November 17, 2012:

Nell Rose, I bet it did freak you out. People have seen so many strange things there has to be something behind it. Who knows. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Nell Rose from England on November 17, 2012:

Hi, fascinating stuff, I have seen things that are pretty strange too, but I tend to believe its probably new technology, like the stealth, but who knows? I remember a couple of years ago standing outside the pub with at least 20 other people, suddenly we all looked up and saw about 30 lights slowly moving across the sky, it was the weirdest thing, most people thought it was chinese lanterns, but the pattern of them was all wrong, ufo's? not sure, but it freaked us all out!

moonlake (author) from America on May 17, 2012:

JamaGenee, It was really funny how that big truck stayed right with us until we got into town.

Once you see UFO you know they exist. Like you said mother ship gathering the babies. I believe the three small triangles I saw belonged to a bigger ship.

Thank you, for stopping by and for the vote.

Joanna McKenna from Central Oklahoma on May 16, 2012:

moonlake, I have NO doubt that trucker wasn't about to go roaring off into the night ALONE after witnessing the same thing you did! Probably swore off speed for a week or two, too!

Great hub! Having seen what I believe was a Mother Ship gathering its "babies", I can't help but laugh at people who are SURE UFOs don't exist!

Voted up and awesome! ;D

moonlake (author) from America on January 21, 2012:


Thanks so much for stopping by. I just heard of some sightings recently and I can't remember where it was but guess there were no great photos.

anndavis25 from Clearwater, Fl. on January 21, 2012:

Moonlake, I just discovered you. I see these people who report the UFO sightings. They look sincere and earnest in the reports. But it seems odd that since we do have the modern digital cameras everywhere, they quit showing up.

moonlake (author) from America on October 17, 2011:

stephaniedas, It sure opened a can of worms for us. We were shocked to see these UFOs. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Stephanie Das from Miami, US on October 17, 2011:

This opens up a whole can of worms, huh? I believe that UFO sightings are real and common. Thanks for sharing your story so bravely. This has obviously made an impact on readers as well!

moonlake (author) from America on August 26, 2011:

Alastar Packer, Thanks for stopping by. We will never forget that triangle it was something to see. These things seem to like lakes where we live now we never see anything.

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on August 26, 2011:

moonlake, the bold print in this story shows the impact these sightings made on you. Once someone sees one of these silent wonders at tree top height--no matter whence they come- the paradigm changes for them whether they had any feelings on the phenomena before or not. There's much that could be discussed as concerns the triangles.

moonlake (author) from America on August 23, 2011:

LadyFae, Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment.

LadyFae from Under the Stars on August 23, 2011:

Wow, I've never seen one myself but they did appear in one of my lucid dreams.

Thank you for following and I will surely keep track of you as well.

Love and hugs

moonlake (author) from America on June 21, 2011:

frogfish thanks for stopping by. We were just talking about the UFO's the other day with our kids. I had completely forgotten about our son also seeing one over the same lake. He was young 12 maybe and he and his friend were fishing off the dock when this weird light came over them. He said everytime he runs into that friend he brings up the UFO the saw together.

frogyfish from Central United States of America on June 21, 2011:

Very interesting sightings...and there have been many more 'triangles' as you described seen in various places. Videos were intriguing also. Thank you for sharing your story...and keep looking up!

moonlake (author) from America on June 16, 2011:

Thanks kentuckyslone for stopping by and leaving a comment on my hub. Will check out your facebook page.

kentuckyslone on June 16, 2011:

Cool stuff. I posted a link to your hub on our UFO page (I made that nonclickable on purpose)

I have seen a UFO (???) twice. Once it could have been something else but the first time no way. I am convinced that what I saw was not any normal technology we know of. Voted up - great write up.

moonlake (author) from America on June 14, 2011:

naturegirl7 thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Your right lots we don't know about.

Yvonne L. B. from South Louisiana on June 14, 2011:

Thanks for telling of your experiences. There is so much in the universe that we don't know about... and probably never will. Great hub.

moonlake (author) from America on January 08, 2011:

jackntheworld Thanks for stopping by my hub.

jackntheworld on January 08, 2011:

HMMMM.... I believe this is real and something from the Aroura Plane Program, so that would make it man made and still Classified, at least this evolution of the design.

moonlake (author) from America on July 28, 2010:

FitnezzJim thanks for stopping by. I don't thank we'll ever see one again just luck that we saw what we saw.

FitnezzJim from Fredericksburg, Virginia on July 25, 2010:

This must have been one of those awesome experiences that opens the mind to considering possibilities. There is something about UFO stories that always makes you wonder 'what did they see?'. Great Story, and I hope you get to see many more.

moonlake (author) from America on May 04, 2010:

Granny's House thinks for stopping by and for your comments. Heading over to your hub.

Granny's House from Older and Hopefully Wiser Time on May 01, 2010:

moon. what a great story. I am going to link this to mine. Have a look

moonlake (author) from America on February 02, 2010:

Thanks for stopping by and for signing my hub.

Everyday_mom on January 29, 2010:

A very intresting read. I have never seen anything like it though. Maybe one of these days. Keeps on writing.

gwinto500 thanks for stopping by my hub and for comments.

gwinto500 on December 16, 2009:

When I initially saw your hub I thought of stealth aircraft like you say - a B2 Bomber, but the three lights and general shape seem to rule these planes out along with the slow speed. Intesting hub though!

moonlake (author) from America on November 23, 2009:

Thanks TrudyVan for stopping by my hub and leaving comment.

TrudyVan Curre from South Africa on November 22, 2009:

Great hub. Yes people do not want to talk about it because of being laughed at. If you have never seen a ufo then you have not seen anything.

moonlake (author) from America on August 09, 2009:

Thanks Ron for stopping by.

Ron Boyd on August 09, 2009:

We caught one in a photo.. it was so fast.. just a glimpse!

frogyfish from Central United States of America on May 08, 2009:

I will be back for more, and am joining your maple-tree-lined fan club. :-)

moonlake (author) from America on February 19, 2009:

Thanks JimmyTH very interesting. I would hope someday we will know what's out there but very likely not in my life time. So many people can't be wrong that they are seeing these things whatever they are.

JimmyTH from Indiana on February 19, 2009:

Hi, Moonlake,

Thought you might be interested in this story about possible triangle propulsion technology at

donotfear,Thank you for reading my hub and becoming my fan.

Annette Thomas from United States on February 18, 2009:

Totally enjoyed reading this, an thank you for becoming my fan. I am now your fan...I love this!

moonlake (author) from America on December 29, 2008:

Thanks for comments...It was all very strange to see so much in one year. It all happened in 1990.

Rebecca Graf from Wisconsin on December 29, 2008:

Very interesting. I haven't see anything like that up here. Yet....

moonlake (author) from America on December 14, 2008:

I wish I could say we have seen some UFO's lately but we haven't. Thanks for leaving a comment.

Cindy Lawson from Guernsey (Channel Islands) on December 14, 2008:

Gosh, I so want to come and stay at your house in the hope of seeing this myself. I have a huge fascination with UFO's and would be ecstatic to see one myself :) You are very lucky :)

moonlake (author) from America on December 13, 2008:

Thanks shinujohn2008 for stopping by. This type of thing is always interesting. I guess we're kind of lucky because we have seen something few people have.

JimmyTH I really at first wondered if this thing was the Stealth but after seeing it in pictures I don't believe it was. My husband said he thought the speed was more like 25-30 miles an hour. When I saw it coming he had time to get out of the house get down to the dock and stand there and wait for it to get to us it was that slow. It was also very thick in size. I guess it will always be a mystery.

JimmyTH from Indiana on December 13, 2008:

Nice Hub! Good of you to tell the story, too, since lots of people still won't talk about such things. I don't have any personal sightings of the triangles, just read about them. People think maybe they are U.S. technology based on the Roswell debris. Some weird patents showed up years ago, like a carbon fiber lighter than air structural foam that could be used in aircraft but hasn't ever, at least publicly. I saw a Stealth fighter up close once, doing no more than fifty mph and still flying, very stable. There are some rumors about some of the Stealth being equipped with magnetic bubble drives. Military research stays about thirty years ahead of the rest of us.

shinujohn2008 on December 13, 2008:

I love to know such things - Is things like UFO real, always i am left with such a question

moonlake (author) from America on December 12, 2008:

Thanks glad you like it.

Triplet Mom from West Coast on December 12, 2008:

Great hub, thanks for sharing your experience. Very interesting read.

moonlake (author) from America on December 12, 2008:

Thanks to JimmyTH for finding some photos sites for me. The photos on here are as close as I can come to what we saw.

moonlake (author) from America on December 12, 2008:

Your welcome and thanks to all of you for comments.

JenArt on December 12, 2008:

Sweet!!!! My online moniker is "xfileluv" this is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing your UFO tales!

Scottiejd on December 12, 2008:

What a fascinating experience. The thing is, if you saw them once, it is common to see them again. Enjoyed reading this a lot. Thanks Moonlake

Jamie Havican from Englewood Florida on December 12, 2008:

Great hub,very good story,have you read my Hubs on the subject?anyway just wanted to tell you I liked it.
