Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Purely bizarre. I came across this video on YouTube in which according to the person who uploaded it, shows a triangle shaped UFO hovering above Carroll County, Maryland on the night of Friday November 12th, 2010.

The video also shows a hovering helicopter keeping a close eye on the triangular craft. Note the lack of FAA blinking lights on the triangular craft. What’s even more bizarre is that on the 1′ minute and 03″ second mark of the clip, we hear a loud explosion. Like that of a high caliber gun or cannon. The person filming the lights becomes startled as the blast is loudly heard. Was the shot from some frightened person on the ground? Or was it a warning shot from the helicopter?

For about 2 hours on Friday November 12th, this object “hovered” over Carroll Maryland accompanied by very loud, intermittent sonic booms. (“Sonic” was how they were described to me.. the noises shook windows and houses).

The video shows three white lights in a triangular formation which do not move (use the moon as a point of reference) and a red, flashing light from the helicopter that circles the object.

The video was recorded with a cell phone by a friend’s mother. Please don’t bitch about the length. We all wish it were longer, but it isn’t.

My friend took a 4 hour bus ride back to Maryland last Sunday to do a little digging. He says the response of the several neighbors he spoke to were erratic–with some residents claiming to have heard the booms and recalled feeling their homes shake, while residents in the very next house claimed to hear nothing.

He also called 4 police stations in the area, but none of them offered an explanation for the booms.

    Karene Connolly, I’m curious, what night are you talking about, the night in the article? Or did you see a UFO on a different night? I hate the idea of people shooting at UFOs as there could be legitimate air craft out there and people could get hurt!!

    It was this particular night as the photos of us in tinfoil hats awaiting my son was date stamped. We saw this exactly and I have similar video but without explosions. The Metlife, and Goodyear blimps both use this airport for docking and refueling. The Preakness and many other events are covered by them. This is the first time that they had come in without their internal illumination fully on. The gondola lights which are 3 red lights in a triangle do look like traditional wedge UFOs but the engines, as you could clearly hear in this video is rather loud. The area around here is a mix of suburban sprawl and old farms, and also many hunters. I can’t determine what the explosions are in this video but shots aren’t implausible in this area for a variety of reasons especially given the season it was taken in. I believe deer and several other hunting seasons to have been in effect then. I do know it was the blimp though because as it landed on the runway they DID turn on the internal blimp lights.

    I would like to clarify some things about the video. The 3 lights on the left are the running lights on the bottom of the gondola of the blimp. The intermittent red lights to the right of them are the cursor of the sign net. The blimp has a scrolling message ticker on it that was off. The lights were the indicator cursor of that lightup sign. The white half moon light to the far right is NOT the MOON! it’s the nose light on the end of the blimp. The angle of observation makes it appear half moon shaped. I hope this sheds light on this video.

    At 1:22 – 1:24 in, there’s a light just below and to the left of the three triangle lights.
    If that is a blimp, it seems dangerous for a helicopter to be flying near it, especially at night.
    Thanks for the video post.
