Arizona sightings tour spots two triangle UFOs

Seven witnesses on a UFO sightings tour in Sedona, AZ, reported watching two amber-colored, triangle-shaped UFOs, according to testimony in Case 67021 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The event occurred about 10 p.m. on June 22, 2015, as the Director of UFO Sightings Tours was with six tour clients with military night vision goggles.

“We all saw two large, amber colored, triangle shape, hard edge, structured objects with our naked eyes,” the reporting tour guide witness stated. “These traveled from the northwest area of the sky beyond Airport Mesa in a southward direction toward Cathedral Rock.”

The seven witnesses were standing together on Chavez Ranch Road turnout area. The witness described the object’s movements.

“The two triangle objects then made an arching turn as they headed easterly toward the Chapel of the Holy Cross area and then disappeared to the north over Munds Mountain. All witnesses were absolutely astonished and continued to discuss the sighting event for the duration of the tour.”

Four of the witnesses had good descriptions of the object.

“Four of the witnesses clearly saw that these were two distinct structured, hard edged, dark triangle-shaped craft each with three amber or orange-colored lights on the bottom and one light at each corner.”

Both craft were seen by the four witnesses with their naked eyes without the use of the Night Vision goggles. Two other witnesses saw them at close range but initially through the goggles and could not make out the shape, only that they were huge bright lights.

“One of these witnesses is a retired airline pilot with over 40 years of professional experience. He stated emphatically that these two objects were remarkably faster than any plane he’d ever seen and that they were very low, much lower than commercial aircraft. When these two witnesses lowered their goggles during the sighting, they and I together saw that these were two very large, amber colored lights, but unfortunately we did not see the distinct triangle shapes, each with three lights in their corners, as did my other four clients. All seven of us did see the two objects make an arched turn while banking and continued to watch them as they disappeared over Munds Mountain in the distance.”

The witness provided a diagram of the sighting – shown on this page.

“Additionally, when these two craft were on initial approach, at the same time, a military jet at very high altitude passed over us and then another one did again as these two objects headed northeast. All seven witnesses commented that the two UFOs were considerably lower than either of the two jets. While we had no way of knowing if the two military jets were in pursuit of the UFOs, their flight path was towards the approach of the two unknown objects. It is difficult to judge the distance of the unknown objects from us, but all the witnesses expressed that the UFOs were at most a few thousand feet, or less above us. All six clients expressed that they are willing to be interviewed and contact information can be provided. Unfortunately we were all caught up in the sighting and no photos or videos were achieved. Darn it! Better luck next time.”

Arizona MUFON Field Investigator Cay Randall-May closed this case as an Unknown.

  1. Just up the road from this amazing local ~ about the end of a short block ~ I was living in a house facing this view above in mid May of 1979.

    I & this other fellow were having a conversation in the back room facing the hill behind us in the daytime when we both saw this huge orange & black horseshoe shaped ufo humming along in low attitude go over our house toward Red Rock Crossing in the picture above.

    We both bolted outside to watch it then bank at the famous landmark & then go right toward to famous ghost city of Jerome many miles away up in the hills across the valley in the late afternoon clear skies….until it disappeared in the afternoon sun.

    Over the years I have read of 3 sightings of a horseshoe shaped ufo. One silver colored one was seen a hundred miles away then in the early 1900s according to one 1953 ufo book. In the early internet days, I tracked down two orange/black horseshoe shaped ufo sightings in Moscow in 1981 & 1983 or so.

    Otherwise have not heard of these type of ships since.

  2. Hello there. This is my report, I wrote it! Thank you to Open Minds and MUFON for posting it! Please feel free to give me credit for the sighting and report. Also please give me credit for the diagram (I worked really hard at getting it just right!). If at all possible please provide my website along with the article http://www.ufosightingtours.com

    Additionally, the location photo from Goggle Earth isn’t quite right. We were on a hill much closer to Cathedral Rock. The above location photo looks as if we were on Airport Mesa, when we were actually on a hill that was much closer. This sighting really took place directly above us. Although, I suppose it’s close enough to show the basic idea.

    Someone with Open Minds may call me for an interview regarding this sighting or about my tours if you wish (who am I kidding, you know I’d love it). 310-502-5398

    Again, thank you for posting it! And thanks in advance for giving me credit for the report and for the diagram.

  3. My daughter and I saw very similar objects with amber lights years ago. Whoever is visiting likes return trips. The only difference with your experience and ours, is that the lights seemed to hang there without movingand we felt we were driving on a conveyor belt, driving, but not getting anywhere compared to our usual drive. We were in Pennsylvania. We reported it to Mufon at the time as well.

  4. All of this info, a professional tour w/website, night vision goggles no less and not 1 PHOTOGRAPH? WTH???
