The National UFO Reporting Center received testimony on March 29, 2022, from a Californian in Los Angeles who claimed to have seen a “translucent or camouflaged” triangle-shaped object at around 8:10 p.m.
The reported witness said, “I was on the street when I saw and heard a helicopter above.” Overhead, to the left of where the chopper had flown over, I saw what appeared to be a line of around four faint lights traveling at a moderate to medium speed.
The chopper had already flown over at this point. The lights were on the underbelly of a triangular aircraft that disappeared into the night sky. If I had to guess, I’d say it was around the size of a huge passenger airliner.
But there was something peculiar about the object that the eyewitness picked up on.
“The flying thing was practically see-through as if it were disguised, and it was moving stealthily. The illumination from underneath is what first drew my attention to it. There were a few clouds, but the sky was otherwise clear, allowing for a good view of the stars. The UFO was larger than a helicopter but smaller than a plane. Lights were white or pale yellow and not nearly as brilliant as those on airplanes. It seemed silent to me.
“It seemed to be floating lazily over the sky, trying not to be spotted.”
The city of Los Angeles has a population of around 3.9 million, making it the most populous in the state of California. Clearer versions of quotes from witnesses have been revised. Contact NUFORC or MUFON to report sightings of unidentified flying objects.
The California Cases
According to MUFON‘s November newsletter, among all the states in 2022, California had the most reported number of UFO encounters in October, with 65 separate occurrences. Florida, with 65 reported cases in October, ties with California for first place. In October of 2022, there were 60 nationwide reports of triangles.
According to the MUFON witness reporting database, there have been sightings of what appear to be translucent objects that were apparently trying to blend into their surroundings.
The following incident mirroring report from Missouri has been included in my book UFO Cases of Interest: 2019 Edition.
Reports of A Huge “Translucent” Triangle Over Missouri
According to MUFON Case 96451, a witness near Springfield, Missouri, saw a huge, translucent, triangular object passing overhead. On the evening of November 9, 2018, the witness was in the backyard walking dogs with a girlfriend.
The witness added, “We were staring up at the sky, hoping to identify Orion, when we saw a large triangle go directly overhead.” The front of it was illuminated by a massive V-shaped bulb. In spite of the V-shaped lights, the size of the craft was immediately apparent. Behind the lamps, it resembled waves on the water. I couldn’t help but think of the movie “Predator.”
Clearly, the ship was disguised in some way. Shock seized us as we watched the object soar directly south, out of our line of sight. It seemed enormous, and yet it made not a sound.
Britt Faaborg, director of the Missouri chapter of MUFON, has officially classified this sighting as a UAV. A close encounter was claimed by Witness A in Colorado in 2007, according to Faaborg’s findings. “The witness appears to be reliable. A fantastically comprehensive account of the ship’s layout (size, shape, lights, etc.) Has a background in astronomy, since that was the activity that led them to the night sky.
