While checking MUFON this morning I found an interesting report about a triangle UFO that had been sighted and photographed. It struck me as one of the most genuine sounding descriptions I’d ever read. I kept it in mind as I made my rounds and then as if it were planned, I see another triangle UFO story on Unexplained Mysteries. As I open the thread and begin reading, I realize it’s the same guy! Now I had to do something.
As I read the thread and took notice of the other posters beginning to ask the obvious questions, I also see that this guy isn’t backing down and is forth coming with answers. He even provided other (not UFO) photos upon request. Usually these guys will disappear once the questioning starts.
That was enough for me, so I contacted Jeffrey via the messaging system at UM and queried him.
Here’s what happened in his own words:
When the sighting started it was quiet, around 6:30 am (daybreak.) Walking up Dumaine, i saw and heard a passenger jet fly over (not a big deal.) I recognised the outline and shape of the plane and kept walking. A minute later i turned onto Duaphine Street going roughly east… or north east. Out of the corner of my eye i noticed a very unusual large craft, maybe the size of 4-5 houses, hover in the air and come to a stop as i also stopped in the middle of the street.
When i first saw the craft, i was confused about the size and distance of the craft due to a lack of noise and a very intense orange/ yellow light blinding my eyes. The light was coming from what looked like 2 little suns up under the craft. I was unable to see the craft due to the glare and brightness of the lights.
After a few seconds of just stunned, wondering what the hell is happening to me, i notice the lights starting to fade and the craft getting smaller. It was then i noticed the vague shape of a triangle. I grabbed my Automatic Canon G7 10 megapixel camera off my chest, pointed it and snapped the picture. The craft was gone. It vanished into the sky in a matter of seconds.
What is in the picture is the same craft that was only blocks away from me flooding me with light. Then, it flew up into the sky to the East, as fast as lighting.
I can only speculate why this happened. If the craft was trying to hide itself, it could have used some kind of optic camouflage or cloaking technology. If it can fly into the sky in an instant, they can certainly hide themselves with other means. I’m forced to conclude that the lights were shining down on me in order to get my attention. What ever was operating that craft, knew of me, and deliberately blinded me with the lights. When the craft disappeared it went into the sky in *exactly* the opposite direction and angle away from me. From my perspective, it looked like the craft was shrinking in size, when it was actually flying out directly away from *me*
I’m a scientifically minded person who is skeptical. As a fan of aeronautics, ballistics & science fiction, who is practical & detail oriented, i’m not likely to be fooled or tricked by some atmospheric phenomena. I’m an military brat who grew up on US Air force bases around the world. As you can imagine, I’m familiar with all manner of jets, planes and other various flying air craft. Up until 4 days ago, i had been able to identify 100% of the objects I’ve seen in the sky.
I’m a fair minded, logic and reason, number and ratio kind of guy. I’m also an artist and creative thinker. I went to college and have a few decades of experience under my belt and can articulate exactly what happened and what i saw. What is in that picture is some kind of craft that is at least a million years ahead of any kind of technology we human beings have (as far as i know.) In an instant, it flew up into the sky away from me. It stopped in the street ahead of me and flooded my eyes with a warm bright orange/ yellow light. Yes, my mind is still spinning as to the implications of witnessing this event & getting such a mind blowing photograph. If such a craft is actually possible, then it means there are many other kinds of technologies that are poss. It seems, the world around us, really is *not* what it seems.
what’s in that photo is real. Yes, i’m stunned.
Jeffrey’s MUFON report is as follows:
Location: New Orleans, LA
Date Submitted: 07/20/2012 05:39 UTC
Date of Event: 07/19/2012 06:30 UTC
Description: Huge mass hovering to a stop. Very, 2 massive very bright orange lights blinding me, seconds later vanishes into clouds.
As you can see, I manipulated his photo a little to possibly gain some detail. In Figure 1, you can see the photo as he saw it with the exception of me blowing it up.
In Figure 2 (below), you can see where I gave it a little gamma and if my eyes don’t deceive me, you can make out a bit of structure between the lights.
Finally, in the figure 3 photo modification, I noticed that the light on the back right is shaped in such a way that it appears to be pointing in the correct direction if it were mounted to a triangle. You can definitely see a flattened side which would be where it’s mounted. This in my opinion rules out a multitude of more common choices as well as furthering the notion that these are not 3 detached lights.
Taking into account Jeffrey’s picture, coupled with his story, I am inclined to believe him. Now it’s up to the readers to decide and Jeffrey has said he has no problem interacting with the GT faithful. So, maybe you want to ask him a question or two?
All considered, this is one of the best sightings I’ve ever read about.
UPDATE: It seems Jeff told his story on the news to the ABC affiliate in New Orleans and they use my photo modifications above on the segment.
Thanks to Jeffrey, MUFON and Unexplained Mysteries for bringing us this story.
