Witness in Georgia claims to spot “massive” metallic triangular UFO

A witness from Georgia claims to have seen a “massive” metallic “beautiful chrome-ish” triangular UFO. The witness says the object had no lights and although it was huge, it was moving very slowly. The witness reported the sighting today to the Mutual UFO Network’s (MUFON) online reporting system.

The witness says the object was spotted on June 1, 2008 while driving home from work with a friend. They were headed from Cartersville to Canton, Georgia on the I-20 highway. The object was so large and strange that the witness says they did not want to alert their friend who was driving for fear of sounding crazy.

Here is the witness testimony in its entirety, unedited:

An old friend and I were heading home from work in Cartersville GA heading towards Canton GA, my friend driving, down GA.20…I looked up and saw a perfect triangle. Appeared to be massive in size. It was the most beautiful chrome-ish metallic I had ever seen. So shocked I could not even tell my friend who was driving the truck we were in. Also I didn’t want to tell anyone for the simple fact they would think I was nuts. I know what I saw. It was real. No markings, no lights and extremely huge for such a slow pace…if it was even moving. 

We were heading northbound on 20 the craft was heading southbound as if it also were following the route in the opposite direction. 

In my life I have seen things that I could not explain…however I would find a way to explain them away in some fashion. This, craft that I saw I can not think of any way to explain it away unless it was a government craft. If it were, then the government is far far more advanced then I had given them credit for. There was a small airplane in the air at the time. I did not pay it any mind. Just know it was there. Did not appear to be following or evading. It was just there. My attention was completely drawn to this massive beautiful “thing”. 

Then we crossed over the next hill and I turned back towards facing the direction we were going and was quiet. Until now. I know what I saw was real. I wish someone would come forward and tell me it was for a parade or it was a silver blanket floating through the sky, tin foil, something. It was such a beautiful day that I would be willing to bet that everyone around was chatting on their way home, paying attention only to the road (as they should if driving) or just thinking about their day. 

I don’t know why I turned my head to the sky. Glad that I did. It was breathtaking. Literally. 

Thank you and I apologize for keeping it under my hat for all these years.

The witness included a computer generated image representing what was seen. The witness claims the graphic does not do the sighing justice, but it looks like a pretty good image to me. If indeed this is what the witness saw, it would have been quite the sight to behold.

The vast majority of UFO sightings turn out to be mundane objects, but once in awhile there are sightings that are much more difficult to explain. MUFON conducts investigations on sightings submitted to their website, and if they share their conclusions, we will let you all know. Meanwhile, others will likely chime in and we will try to keep you up to date with any discoveries. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the object in the comments below.

  1. Note that Georgia 20 and Interstate 20 are 2 different roads.

    Interstate 20 does not go anywhere near to Cartersville. I lived in north Georgia for nearly 35 years including Rome and Cobb County; both of which are near Cartersville.

    Also worth noting Dobbins Air Force base, one of the Air Force Reserve’s busiest bases and Lockheed Plant #6 where the F22 was partially assembled are located in Cobb County. It would not surprise me that the military might be flying about in the area and Hartsfield air traffic is quite common to be seen in the area.

  2. We were going home from Cartersville TO Canton…Worked in C’ville…lived in Canton. I too have lived in Georgia for many years…from 1966 til this day. My father worked at Lockheed GA. for all of my young years growing up in Cobb County. Am very familiar with F22’s…and Dobbins etcetcetc…I know what I saw was absolutely NOT a tiny F22…this was four or five times the size of a C5A or B Galaxy aircraft. Was traveling 20 today to do side work in Waleska…so I decided to see if anybody has posted any sitings around that day and time…because what I saw was massive in size…no navigational lights…no markings…no windows…just big perfect massive beautiful chrome-ish “thing” in the sky that seemed to be following the highway…20 I-20…whatever the hell that road is…probably a mile or three before 108 towards Waleska. So debunk away…no problem here…I KNOW what I saw and it was NOT any craft that we as civilians at least are aware of. I am still searching for any other sightings because I myself find it hard to believe and I do NOT lie. Period. Ever.
