Ohio witness considers UFO wanted to be seen

An Ohio witness east of Westerville reported a close encounter with a triangle UFO after getting a psychic impression to go outside, according to testimony in Case 76141 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident occurred at 10:05 p.m., on September 14, 2015, and was reported to MUFON on May 1, 2016.

“I observed the same bright light approaching from the north that I had seen just a few nights prior and I had no camera with me,” the witness stated.“The craft entered my frame of vision from the west skimming the tree tops, turned 90 degrees on a dime, and the craft was moving directly at me.”

The witness described the craft’s lighting.

“The navigational lights were that of a jet, but the headlight was 10 times brighter than a typical jet headlight. I had just taken my camera in from my night of sky gazing, took the dog out, took her back in, and started to lock up the door for the night when I got a ‘psychic’ message to return outside and to stand by a particular tree, which I did. Very strange.”

But the idea to go outside to this particular location quickly paid off.

“Sure as the devil, that’s when I spotted the craft approaching from the west and just north of me. I backed away from the tree and boldly stood as the craft centered directly between my eyes and came overhead at an estimated 15 – 20 mph. or less.”

The craft was also very well lit.

“It presented what appeared to be a full display of lights, including a ring of brilliant, red, individual lights, dead center in the belly of the craft. It was lit like ‘Times Square’ and utterly silent. Another triangle, but this time, just over my head. This time, left light red and right, green; different from prior, higher slightly, higher altitude sightings of two triangles together, with red and white lights only, from days earlier. The head-beam was brighter than the moon and cast for a couple miles forward, at least, and came over at an estimated 100 feet – 125 feet at best. It was very low and slow.”

The object was also moving very slow.

“I know I said 15 – 20 mph., but in reality it may have been moving at 5 mph. for all I know. I was hypnotized by the green light and a feeling of peace and love that came over me. Again, very strange.”

The witness was amazed at the sighting.

“Whoever or whatever they are, allowed me to see the entire craft. I was in absolute awe. And Iwasn’t the least bit frightened. I know the light mesmerized me as I stood smiling at the craft approaching me. If it were any lower, I could have hit it with a rock. As it passed overhead, I was dead center with the brilliant, red belly lights. If they wanted to abduct me, they could have. As it was about to exit our property, the only sound it made was a low crackling sound. The back edge was trimmed with yellow-orange oblong ports. I got a great look at the craft, but missed a sensational photo op. This struck me as a total anti-gravity craft, as the giant equilateral triangle barely moved through the air, with no wind or air disturbance being generated whatsoever.”

  1. i saw a ship that closely resembled this drawing approximate 2 months ago. it passed over my house and i just caught the rear of the ship. it was silent and was estimated to be 300 – 400 ft. high. no time for pictures but i believe this craft is real.

  2. I live in westerville ohio, i just stumbled upon this article two years after it was posted. It might be irrelevant now but in late April/early May of 2017 i witnessed this exact craft. I was with an ex girlfriend of mine when we saw it late at night. Surprisingly enough, other people in the area saw it too. It was the most surreal thing I’ve ever seen. It was coming from the East (over hoover resivor) and was heading West (towards the medallion country club. It was very quiet, and it looked like the drawings above. I have been working towards my aerospace systems engineering degree for three years now and confirm that this event happened and was not a form of any aircraft known to the commercial or military sector.

  3. Mr. Carterr,
    Thank you for your comment.
    It confirms that I didn’t make this up and
    should validate to the World that these things
    are real.
    Wright Patt? Maybe … but there were 2 Triangles
    directly overhead interacting w one another just a
    few nights prior that my wife witnessed as well.
    They knocked out our power and made the phone ring.
    On the night of this close encounter, they drew me back
    out telepathically. And 2, why would Wright Patt place 2
    multi billion dollar crafts over my property?
    Its a fair and rational thought, but Im leaning toward the
    probability these Triangles are not from Earth.
    Glad you saw it too! Thank you

  4. Sorry,
    I failed to mention a seriously important aspect of my first
    sighting days before w the 2 Triangles overhead.
    One displayed the impossible and made crystal clear
    manuevers at perfect 45 and 90 degree angles, plus, both
    Triangles simply stopped in mid-air and just sat there
    motionless. I have been assured by multiple people
    “In the Know” that they knew of Zero Aircraft with the
    capabilities I outlined above.
    Surreal is a Very Good way to describe the event.
    I was in a state of shock, bliss, and disbelief all at the same
    time as I stared straight up into the bright, glowing ring
    of Red Lights. I kept telling myself, “These AREN’T Supposed
    to exist” … but … there it was … 100 feet right over me.
    I wish it would come back and land in our field. I’d love
    to meet the occupants and get a personal tour of the
