The witness and her boyfriend were traveling along I-680 about 11 p.m. on September 14, 2015, just passing the 84 exit, when the object was first observed.

“Sitting in the passenger seat I noticed bright lights, red, blue and lots of white,” the witness reported. “I leaned forward and started to observe it for a quick second noticing the craft was 3-D like and triangular in shape. The white lights outlined the shape of the craft.”

The witness had never seen anything like this in shape or size.

“I second guessed myself and started to lean back. I took a quick glance at my boyfriend and realized he was looking at the same thing. I quickly looked back and within seconds the object blinked about three times (pulsating). When I thought the lights were going to blink again it vanished!”

The witness says she was in shock over what she saw.

“He was scared to drive underneath not knowing whether it had just cloaked and was still there. The whole time it was still above the freeway in perfect view, no movement at all. We came home and I drew a sketch. I couldn’t make out every detail of the object but I remember white lights outlining the bottom of the craft, panel-like shutters if you want to call them on the side. Very hard to describe. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s like paper overlapping paper.”

Livermore is a city in Alameda County, California, population 85,156. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

Editor’s note: The word “enourmous” is in quotes in the title because, although it was not included in the story, the witness wrote in the short description of her report to MUFON: “the object was enormous in size, dark triangular shaped 3D like unexplainable [sic] and unbelievable!”

  1. A beautiful drawing of what surely appears to be the TR-3B. Compare the illustration provided by the witness with the picture at the link below:


    Keep in mind that Sandia Labs has a facility on the south side of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory — both of which are located near the area of this sighting. The pilots must have temporarily lost their cloaking capability on final approach.

    The gang hanging out on Tikaboo Peak must be awfully jealous.

  2. I just read the entire report on the MUFON site, and nowhere in the report or description does the reporter use the word, ‘EMORMOUS’. The morphological description is “…nothing near similar to a plane in shape or size” and ” the craft was 3D like and triangular in shape”

    She is obviously describing the TR-3B that can be viewed in action here;


    So, Mr. Marsh, I realize that sensationalizing is a part of grabbing attention to your posts, however, let’s stick to the facts and realistic reporting. It’s enough.


  3. Just seen this same thing for the second time this month headed southbound on 680 near the 680/580 interchange. Both times the object was in the exact same place. The lights were spaced out exactly the same. My 9 and 10 year old boys were with me both times and all of our stories are identical.

  4. My wive just witnessed a very similar object at the same location. February 12, 2016; 5:50 am. Three giant lights relatively low in the sky. I searched google and fount this article!

    My wife’s car is equipped by dash camera. Here is youtube video:


    Any explanations???

  5. Many in livermore have seen something ufo like. Lets not discount the fact that ufos have always been interested in man made nuclear technology. The lawrence livermore lab specializes in nuclear energy being used for lasers. I think that this is just as important as the other facts and could be a huge reason why people are brushing off your story. They brush it off because theres something to hide

  6. George M….I have seen the exact same object you saw a couple times…around 2015 and 2016…both on Hwy 680 near where you filmed the video and also up the hill going up the hill right before Pleasanton. I thought is was very strang…and I asummed it was one of the small blimps that fly regularly in the area, but it didn’t move like a blimp in that it seemed to hover and jump position some and had flashing flights. It seemed to be hovering and moving in a direction and was bigger than a helicopter and didn’t flay like one.. It was some sort of flying aircraft – not sure it was extraterrestrial since it didn’t just take off at a high speed. I really don’t know what it was but the lights were exactly as in the video and near where you filmed that.
