Hovering triangle UFO videotaped by Mississippi witness

A Mississippi witness at Lewisburg reported watching and videotaping what appeared to be a hovering, triangle-shaped UFO, according to testimony in Case 63598 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness states that she is a 15-year ufologist in the Memphis metro area and she had been seeing bright lights in the same location for one week. The incident occurred on February 26, 2015.

“It snowed yesterday, so it made it easier to see last night, and the craft was much closer, much brighter, and very visible,” the witness stated.

The witness ran outside at 12:46 a.m. and began videotaping the object (video seen above).

“It was hovering very low over an area with corn fields. I observed it hovering for about 20 minutes, but it was too cold outside and I ran out straight from bed with no shoes on in the snow, therefore, I could only film for a short time.”

After about 20 minutes, the object seemed to “just vanish” and no flight path was observed.

“Just hovering and pulsating lights that appeared to have a red glow at times. It appeared to be one very large triangular aircraft, and it was hovering so low that it had a 3-D effect when viewing. There were times when it appeared to have ejected smaller orb lights, but that is unclear. It was difficult to tell from my vantage point whether it was part of the larger craft, or additional smaller craft.”

The case was investigated by Mississippi Field Investigator Mark Bort and closed as an Unknown.

“The witness stated that the object appeared to be approximately 400-500 yards away and just over the tree tops – approximately 80-100 feet off the ground,” Bort stated in his report. “The witness stated that she went outside in bare feet to record the object with a camcorder that she had close by.  She was only able to record the object for a short time, because there was snow on the ground and she was not dressed for the weather.  After shooting the video the witness returned to her house and was able to continue to observe the object.  The witness observed the object for approximately 20 minutes in total.”

The witness first saw the object as a big white light, but when she stepped outside to film it, the large white light was gone.

“She was able to see a large triangular object that she estimated to be approximately the size of a football field,” Bort stated. “The witness stated that the object appeared to be hovering over a corn field, and it made no sound, and left no traces behind.  The witness stated that the object seemed to gain altitude and then faded from sight. The witness advised me that the object did not produce any strange long term or short term effects on her or any electronics in or around her home.”

  1. That is so strange it would seem definitive proof of other worldly craft. There are so many reports of the triangles and white lights. I have noticed there are 3 types or sizes of triangles.. 10 meters 30 meters and 300 meters.. I wonder sometimes if the triangles go together to form larger craft.. if 3 triangles align sides around another triangle in center it would create a larger triangle.. but trying to wrap your mind around it, trying to tie it together with any plausible imaginative thought is the problem in believing extraterrestrials visiting us or exist being tangible at all. We have nothing to compare them to, as a public.

    Extraordinary craft are in our skies. Are they ours, aliens or mass populous delusions of similar sightings and video, photography recordings. My question has become, how and when will extraterrestrial existence be revealed, so we know the truth, not if it is true or not. Where and when will the public make a stand effectively demanding and getting the entire truth of what is known of alien cultures from other worlds. We know something. It can’t be such a mystery to every government entity for all this time since the 40’s. Come on, start it up.. we are ready to know.

    Great video and effort to capture the anomaly!

  2. At the end of the clip, my toy computer made it appear as though the pattern of lights resembled the Orion constellation.

  3. I lived in northern Ms. as a child and had a very close encounter witnessed by three other people that are still alive and remember it. as we’ve spoke of it over the years. within about 15 miles from this exact spot it still gives me chills to drive pass the spot to this day. we tried calling newspapers and tv at the time of the incident but the year was 1976 and in those days contact was hard to do as no one believed my grandmother or my brother or myself. It was contact I will always believe with all my heart.

  4. I live about 45 miles from Lewisburg, MS east of Batesville. My husband and I just observed in the southern sky an object of which the lights changed colors from orange to white to yellow to blue, with another light that occasionally blinked on around it. The object moved in tight circles, then up, down, half circle, left, right. It was there when we came in. I took my camera out but the lens is not strong enough to pick the object up well. Quite an experience!! I was originally out to just observe the constellations because I am trying to learn them. The object caught my eye because at first I thought it was an airplane, until I noticed the erratic movements and the changing colors. Funny thing is, my husband observed it with me, and he is a huge UFO skeptic!!

  5. This sighting is in the middle of the night are U.S. test craft most are tested at night for security reasons obviously.
    There are many sitings during the day those who pilot these ships don’t care who sees them, they are fully aware of the current development of humanity and of course the stupidly of humans.

  6. I see that Sheila the serial Debunker has slipped one through —

    TR3B – manmade.

    Sheila knows that all UFOs are US military-industrial complex conspiracies.
    What the hell is a “TR3B”?

  7. Billy —

    The TR-3B is reportedly a secret USAF craft, of the sort which the Cammo Dudes don’t want you seeing at Area 51. The link below will bring you to a program by British UFOlogist Richard D. Hall (not to be confused with the late, Richard H. Hall) which depicts the TR-3B at approximately 33 minutes into the clip:

    Of course, the TR-3B bears no resemblance to this Lewisburg, Mississippi UFO because the TR-3B reportedly has a single, white light at each of the 3 vertices of the craft, with a single light (usually red) at the center. Some investigators believe that the TR-3B is an earthly knock-off of an actual alien craft, such as the type photographed flying over Belgium during 1989 – 1990.

  8. I’m not very sure this UFO is triangular in exterior design; the light array, however is….somewhat.

    IF this is a prank / hoax, then it’s a darn good one. I’m thinking perhaps some black helium mid size balloon, encased in a light aluminum frame, with remote switching lights placed in a way so no one can figure out what this thing looks like. I do see signs of lights being switched on/off and back/forth.

    I frankly don’t see anyone putting forth both effort and money, just to hoax up something like this.

    However….if this is some experimental MILITARY project aircraft, then I can see them placing lights in some manner, so to “hide” the aircraft’s true design, during test flight runs of whatever their prototype aircraft / drone thing is.

    But in Lewisburg, Mississippi–NOT at some remote desert area test grounds….like Area 51?? Hmmmm.

    I believe in UFO’s–but I’m not convinced their otherworldly ( otherwise, they’d leave SETI a voicemail ) than I theorize they’re interdimensional–and have mastered THAT travel mode; one we’re simply not ready to harness or use…..or use wisely, anyway.
