Multiple UFOs reported 20 feet over Pennsylvania homes

A Pennsylvania witness at Fairless Hills reported watching four triangle-shaped UFOs silently moving just 20 feet over neighboring homes followed by 20 to 30 star-like objects crossing the sky, according to testimony in Case 80797 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The sighting began about 8:20 p.m. on November 4, 2016, when the witness took his two children out for a walk in search of Pokémon hotspots.

“It was a crisp fall night, and for a night sky, the sky was bright and full of stars with no clouds or precipitation,” the witness stated. “At approximately 8:20 p.m. we turned and began walking up a street with a slight incline, and my youngest child stopped to catch a Pokémon and had lagged behind. I noticed he was no longer with us and I turned around to call to him to catch up, and right behind him were two huge, black, triangular craft, larger than the houses they were above, flying slowly and approximately 20 feet above the one story houses across the street, and approximately 20 feet away.”

The witness immediately spotted a second craft.

“The second craft was flying at the same height as the first craft, immediately behind it. The two craft were black with three unwavering bright white lights at the three corners of the triangles, with a solid bright primary, red light in the center of the craft. The craft were completely silent; they were almost on top of us and we never would have known they were there if I did not happen to look behind us. The two craft came from a western direction and were heading east.”

The objects then changed direction.

“We observed the craft silently shift direction southeast before disappearing behind trees and we lost visual contact with the craft. We continued walking up the road away from the craft headed north, heading home, for approximately 10 seconds, when I looked behind again to where we had sighted the craft. Two more triangular craft were flying in the exact same direction in the exact location where the first two craft were sighted, and they turned and headed southeast in exactly the same spot that the other two craft had turned. It was as if we witnessed deja vu; as if we viewed the event again, but this time at a slightly different angle, as we were slightly farther away from the craft the second time around.”

The witness then returned to the original location.

“We walked back down to the location where we spotted and observed the first craft, this time from a farther distance away, as the craft were heading away from us. And at this point my eldest son managed to snap two photographs of these second two craft with his phone.”

The witness then observed a large group of star-like objects.

“We turned east and onto my road, when we looked up into the sky and witnessed a patch of sky with between 20 and 30 balls of light, exact number unable to be determined, that looked like stars, except that they were moving. Some of the lights were moving very slowly, almost imperceptibly, but other craft were moving so quick that they would leave a light trail behind them, as they shifted position. The lights were different colors, from red to bluish-white to orange to bright white. We walked towards this activity in the sky, however, these lights were high up – like stars – and to the east of our location. Our vision would occasionally be obstructed as we walked on our street due to street lamps, but the activity continued unabated as we reached our house. We ran inside and I asked my wife to come out and check out what was happening in the sky. Approximately three minutes later, just after 8:30 p.m., we walked back outside and there was nothing in the sky where we had just observed the lights; not even observable stars.”

  1. I don’t want to be insulting, but just because the objects appear about to be 20 feet above the roofs (vertically) certainly does not mean they were – I’ve seen the moon just above the roof of my neighbors home … I think you get my point. No other pictures ? 8:30pm in 2016, a populated area, lots of people with phones with cameras.

  2. For the past year I have been watching flickering orbital craft over Sidney,Ohio.Looking at them through a 300 power telescope in focus they appear red white and blue cylinders.Taking them slightly out of focus they look saucer shaped with rotating red white and blue lights going around outer edge like the craft is spinning.My son saw them and said they look like police cars in orbit,the lights that is.We were wondering if Landsat has lights on it.
    These appear mostly from the north and seem to follow the same path whenever I can see them,on a clear night.
    Can you shed some light on these for me?Thanks,George.

  3. Not everyone has their cell phones with them 24/7. If me, myself was lucky enough to witness a UFO, I’d more than likely never get it on camera because either my phone’s not with me (which happens a lot, to be honest) or I’m in such awe of the situation and grabbing a quick photo or video isn’t even on my radar. Just saying…

    Very interesting encounter this family had. Great detail too!

  4. George the colors of the lights could be clues…you say red white and blue thats American colors….The one seen in Canada has red and white lights…..

  5. I am becoming more convinced with each new night time, triangular object sighting, especially multicraft, cruising through skies leisurely and especially if we hear of helicopter tracking…that these are simply advanced propulsion system, earthly aviation machines of Government origin going out for some test rides. Not to say their aren’t or haven’t been ET sightings and past contact, but the overwhelming number of cases these days seem to be signs of the top secret projects coming out for some testing in the real world now they’re nearing perfection. Good news for the West if we are on the brink of making known such technically advanced craft.

  6. I would never get a shot on my phone either for those exact same reasons. And less than 9000 ppl in a town, there is no populated areas, EVER. Lol my town has 30k n dead, always. Im also in agreement about the top secrets spacecrafts prepping for release and im excited to see them.

  7. Heading west to east from the witness location, seems likely it was our own high end aircraft heading to McGuire AFB across the river in NJ. I’ve seen some amazing stuff up in the air living in the area.

  8. These craft are real, they have been seen everywhere, particularly in Belgium, where dozens have been seen. When a craft flies silently you can be right underneath it, and not realise it is there. For further information about all of this, see: ‘The Third Explanation’ Amazon

  9. red,white and blue were the prominent colours of the UFO/orb which I witnessed last year,-July 2016,here in New Zealand.It was a very “pretty”,swirling myriad of those colours,-almost hypnotic it was so easy on the eyes.
