Two Maine witnesses report a triangle UFO 100 yards away and "40 feet off the tops of the pines" while something appeared to be moving around at ground level below with a light at 6:30 p.m. on November 24, 2010, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The two friends had gone to a nearby ridge area to test a second-hand four-wheel-drive vehicle one of them had purchased, according to the reporting witness. They stopped the vehicle and cut off the headlights, noticed the hovering triangle object, and then saw the light at ground level.
"It was to the right of the truck about 100 yards, and it was kind of shiny and just the corners were lit up on it," the reporting witness stated. "It was in the shape of a triangle, maybe 40 foot off the tops of the pines. But as I was just about to ask my friend what he thought it was, the tops of the pines lit up about 100 feet from us, so my friend shut the truck off including the parking lights in seconds flat, cause something was on the ground with a light and it was looking for something."
The two now watched the object on the ground.
"It scanned the ground for 5 minutes, then the lights went away, but just as fast as it went away, it came back and started to search around again. But this time the lights were brighter and closer."
The two watched the scene for another 10 minutes - and did not notice any sound being produced except a "low frequency hum."
As the ground lights seemed to be getting brighter, the two became frightened, started the truck, and moved away. As they left the area, they said the light on the ground appeared to continue "searching for something like it didn't care that we were there."
No town name was mentioned in the public potion of the MUFON report, which was filed on November 25, 2010. No video or images were provided with the report.
Maine is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a lower than average number of UFO sightings recently. Maine had 8 UFO sighting reports in October 2010.
