UFO Sighting Report


June, 2006


Garland, Texas, United States


Two of us saw a triangular "craft" in the air at around 3am on our way home from a friends' house. There was a light at each point and a flashing red in the middle. It hovered over a residential area for at least 2 minutes before slowly gliding away. I say "gliding" because I rolled my window down expecting to hear the jet engines but there was not a sound coming from it.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a dark color either black or dark dark blue hard to tell because of the street lights. It was shaped like a triangle but it looked like it had a cockpit or something on top. It was a flat color and not shiny. There was a light at each corner and a flashing one in the middle.

Size of Object(s)

A little larger than a rooftop?

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

I would guess about 2 stories so 200 - 300 ft above the ground.

Suburban residential neighborhood. Nearest military base is in Fort Worth.

Full Description & Details

My sister and I were on our way home from a friend's house. We saw a triangular craft in the air above the houses next to the Tom Thumb on Arapaho and Shiloh in Garland, Texas. We couldn't figure out why it was hovering because we never new a plane, jet or other that could or would hover over a residential area of all places. It had 3 white (or red) lights at each corner and a red (or white)flashing. I can't recall which color was flashing. I just remember that someone told me that all aircraft must have a flashing light when it's in the air or something. So I figured it was a military aircraft. Anyways, as we drove by, it slowly (and I do mean slowly) moved Southwesternly. Also, when we drove by it I rolled my window down expecting to hear the jet engines or some kind of noise, but we heard nothing. It was about the size of large jet plane from our proximity. I don't know measurements, but I do know that jet planes don't get that close to houses in the middle of the night.

We figured it must be a military aircraft of some sort. So we asked an Air Force friend of the family and he had never heard of an aircraft that hovered. He said it was probably a helicopter, but it definitely was not. We come from a military family and we're very familiar with the types of aircraft in the sky. This was not a balloon, helicopter or other hovering mobile. It was plane-like but it moved so slowly after hovering for such a long time. Very strange....

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

It may have been a man-made aircraft but like I did as an Air Force pilot and he did not know of anything like it.

Witness Background

College educated

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Don't know what to think. I assume it's a military aircraft. However, I have had two other strange "sightings". The next most recent was in Seattle and my friend and I saw a strange bright light zoom over the highway we were on and then zoom away. (It was near Boeing field on I5.) The other sighting was while I was by myself and inside of clouds. I can't account for that one, because it was probably an airline the lights were awfully large for an airline. Again, my father flew helicopters and airplanes and we've seen and heard all sorts of aircraft.
