A California witness reports watching a "perfect black triangle" with three bright, white lights at 11:15 p.m., March 28, 2011, that made no sound as it passed overhead, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness first thought that the lights were a flock of birds as observed from Palos Verdes Penninsula, Los Angeles County, Southern California.
"When first seeing this unknown object I thought they were three white birds, but when I focused my eyes, It was way too bright to be birds, but now realized they were three bright, white lights - almost fluorescent," the witness stated. "I also noticed the lights were at a fixed place while descending and turning the curve towards west-NW to Los Angeles. It did not act like any kinds of birds!"
As the lights moved closer, a reflection from ground lights made the object visible.
"While flying closest over my sighting, I noticed the reflection from the ground lights cast a shadow over the lights - where I clearly saw a perfect black triangle, outlining the lights. They were located only on the bottom of the craft. It was going really fast, but not shaking. It was more like a very fast and smooth, curved down the way it flew, nothing like any jet or conventional aircraft would fly like."
After a military jet flew over five minutes later, the witness recalled that the object had made no sound.
"I noticed ther was no sound emitting from it, and remember this is at night when things are down, in a very quiet neighborhood. I was almost in shock when I saw it and when it flew by. My sight time of the object was about 30-40 seconds, but it was enough to clearly see what it looked like and what it was doing when passing by."
The witness experienced both shock and fright after the event.
"My feeling at the time was shock, and a little more frightening after I quickly processed in my mind of what I had just seen. It must have been close above where I was at because I lost sight once it passed over the house, because of the vertical structure of house. I have watched UFO documentaries mentioning UFOs that were triangles, and the scenario that played out afterwards with the jet, and that looks like what happened. After seeing this object it is amazing that I spotted it at that particular moment in time, when I was actively looking up at the stars trying to get some fresh air."
No images or video were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 29, 2011. California MUFON State Section Director Steve R. Murillo, is investigating. The above witness quotes were edited for clarity.
