Missouri witness loses time after triangle UFO encounter

A Missouri witness at Union reported a two-hour time loss after watching a triangle-shaped UFO hovering below the clouds, according to testimony in Case 64426 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was at home cleaning rain gutters about 8:10 p.m. on March 24, 2015, when the incident began.

“I stood on the porch to see if the water was going through the gutter and down the drain,” the witness stated. “I then heard what I thought was a jet or something to that effect. I thought it was kind of odd with the weather that was going on.”

The witness stepped off the porch and looked up in the sky and saw the object.

During the first minute of the sighting, the witness saw ‘pulsating white lights’ coming from the object and then has no further memory of the sighting events. Pictured: Union, MO. (Credit: Google)

“I wasn’t for sure what I was looking at. It was a black, triangular-shaped craft with a gray triangular shape on the underside with three red pulsating lights on each corner. It was hovering just below the cloud cover.”

During the first minute of the sighting, the witness saw “pulsating white lights” coming from the object.

“I’m not sure how long this went on for I remember nothing after seeing the lights. All I remember is going in the house and looking at the clock and saying to my wife; it’s 10:30 p.m.”

The loss of time is upsetting to the witness.

“This has been weighing on my mind for over a week with what had happened and not knowing what happened to me in the two-hour difference and not knowing who to tell my story to. I am still in shock – scared – over this. I do not have any pictures or video of this occurrence for it was something I was not expecting and it all happened so fast.”

Union is a city in and the county seat of Franklin County, MO, population 10,204. Missouri MUFON is investigating this case, which was reported on April 3, 2015.

  1. I don’t know anything about the loss of time, but most of the black triangular shape UFO’s are some kind of TR-3B craft that our military hasn’t introduced to the public.

  2. My BS detector is flashing on this one. If I was outside at 8:30 pm cleaning gutters and didn’t come in til 10:30….wouldn’t my wife or someone come out to see where we were? I mean after it turns pitch dark..by 9 or 9:30 …wouldn’t somebody come outside to see if we were ok?

  3. Andrea I wouldn’t be too sure the triangles are mostly ours. Some maybe, I saw a small one back in the nineties which had propulsion and agility beyond anything we could conceivably have and I am ready to give a lot of ground against technology that is still under wraps. Nevertheless not ours. It was able to hover silently and to instantly move without re-orienting itself in a direction 70 degrees different to the one it was moving in and to accelerate so fast that it became a black line disappearing on the horizon in less than a second. It was also small, not bigger than a jet fighter and less than a couple of car lengths from my car for a few minutes whilst I was driving on a country road in Northern Europe. Why would ours be doing that to me in my normal looking Mazda 323 station wagon?

    The second time I saw a triangle was in my home city of Perth back in 2006 and I was with others who also saw it and a number of reports from that night have surfaced since I have come across. That was one of the often mentioned ENORMOUS ones which was around dusk, very slowly and at low altitude and it was bigger than a couple of aircraft carriers side by side. I cannot accept that we are building anything remotely as huge or capable of hovering at virtual standstill a hundred meters or so from the ground without making a sound or attracting attention of more than a handful of witnesses. There was one thing though which has always stuck with me. Despite attempting to stop other motorists to look to the right and up which is all it would have taken for them to see it; and even a busload of passengers when I jumped on-board when it stopped and tried to get them to look out the window at it, none of them could bring themselves to look. Some acted jokingly, saying they wouldn’t fall for that line and others actually turned away or looked down and even a few hunkered down in their seats and hid their faces away, rather than just look and see if I was telling them truly. THEY DID NOT WANT TO SEE IT! I could tell that they simply could not look at the thing when told because to see it was something they would then be forced to do and I have wondered since if such people would just refuse to see it if they were the primary sighter also? I think the answer is obvious. So if anyone wonders how so few manage to see such enormous and anomalous objects as are described, I think I know the answer.

  4. This person needs to go see a hypnotherapist to reconstruct what transpired. Many have gone through the same experience.

  5. wasn’t that the night we changed the clocks…..I know I change mine early in the evening to get a jump start on it……

  6. I live with my wife in Taos, New Mexico at 7,000′ elevation. I am 70 years old. I have seen UFOs around on the mountains many times over the last 20 years. I also have been visited more than once. One time I met a 7′ tall Hooded Being in my hallway. I looked him in the face, as I always do when I talk to people, and asked him (telepathically, of course) “Why are you here?” He replied something like, “We were in the area and wanted to see how you were doing.” Why would they care about me?
    He said “we” because their were male and females, 7 in all. Funny thing, while I was talking to the guys, the females had opened my wife’s jewelry stand lid and were looking at her ring collection. I told my wife that women are always women.

    One thing I realized afterwards was that my question assumed that I knew who they were. No introductions needed.

    Another time, before going to sleep, I mentioned to my wife that Aliens from various dimensions would not look alike. Then, about an hour later, two 7′ Hooded Beings brought what appeared to be a 3′ tall 2″ thick Being. He was green and really looked like the little cartoon character Gumby.

    I also “came to” one time and realized something had just happened. I looked into my back yard and saw 3 identical little girls. It was 3:30 in the morning. I laughed and thought to myself, “That’s not a very good disguise”.
    My visitors are always loving Beings. I have no fear, so I just enjoy the event.
    I also astral travel (shift my awareness to other realities that are parallel to this one.) I figure that I’m experiencing 5 realities currently. I know o 3 of them. The Moon. The Planet Taras. And here on Earth. But I’m beginning to suspect that I have a Doppleganger going on here also.
    Please don’t think me daft. I’m very balanced with it all. Life is good!

  7. Very good posts here. I am an experiencer of the fifth kind.
    For many years I have had meetings and contacts with what Earth calls extraterrestrials. Truthfully, the planets belong to no one and everyone. So the term ‘extraterrestrial’ is not even applicable.
    I have seen a gigantic black triangle with beautiful gray designs on the underside.
    I cannot even guess its size…from the ground it blacked out at least half of the sky. It was the biggest space craft I have ever seen.Many, many millions of people have experienced beings and space craft but do not remember or cannot remember because it upsets their idea of reality. Please believe me and the others who have posted experiences here, UFO’s and ‘ET’s’ are here and come and go constantly. The SETI project to contact life on other planets is laughable…governments (including USA) from all over the world know the truth about beings visiting Earth since life began here. Join the party. Life is overflowing throughout our Universe so get over the hang ups you’ve got about beings from other worlds. We are here. They are here.
