Flying Triangles

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 03, 2004

There’s a strange article on space.com right now about the continued sightings of Flying Triangle UFOs. A man familiar with the sightings says the sightings of the triangles are akin to those of the then-secret stealth fighter and bomber back in the 80s:

But it does not appear to be consistent with the covert patterns of deployment we saw with the F-117 and B-2 prior to their acknowledgement. This is open, even brazen.

Which makes sense. Maybe the DoD is testing out a new hover aircraft. But people have been sighting these things in populated areas and adorned with unusual lights:

The vehicles sometime fly with easily noticeable bright lights — either blinding white lights, or have “bright disco lights” that usually flash combinations of red, green or blue.

Bright disco lights? Is it a mobile wedding DJ transport? Sony’s new PlayStation Mega platform with built-in Dance Dance Revolution? Old movie props from Close Encounters of the Third Kind? I thought space.com was a serious journalistic organization. Stay tuned for next week’s headline: “Moon made of cheese, says National Institute for Believing that the Moon is Made Out of Cheese (NIBMMOC)”.
