Giant Black Triangles: Ours or Theirs?

I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't have their own theory about what these enormous "black delta" craft might be. We've all heard about them by now and these craft have become the subject of quite a few UFO documentaries, books and internet articles. A quick search of youtube yields dozens of surprisingly clear videos from multiple states, but they seem to be concentrated in Pennsylvania, New York state (the Hudson Valley region), Illinois and of course, southern California. Seeing giant delta shaped and boomerang shaped craft near Bakersfield, CA is at the very least unsurprising given the plethora of black budget aerospace companies that call the area home. However, NY, PA and IL make much less sense if these craft are indeed 'ours.'

This leads me to several important questions that anyone researching this topic should ask:

1) IF there are indeed delta craft in excess of 300 feet in diameter flying low above the heads of stunned onlookers in the Hudson Valley, where exactly are these craft based out of? Upstate NY and PA do not have any operational airbases. The nearest candidate would be Andrews, home of Air Force One. The problem here is that aside from the AF1 hangar, there aren't any hangars at Andrews capable of stowing such a craft. Additionally, the base is surrounded on all sides by residential areas including schools and neighborhoods. Not an ideal base to store an ultra secret black budget aircraft.

2) IF these craft are military in nature, WHY on earth would you fly slowly and at times treetop-level above rural areas such as Pine Bush, NY and Harrisburg, PA? This makes zero sense from a logical standpoint. The first rule of black budget aircraft is to keep them as hidden as possible. Clearly, these delta and boomerang-shaped craft have no problem being seen, and in some cases seem to intentionally draw attention to themselves.

3) WHAT is the story with the utterly insane lighting patterns and non-FAA regulation navigational lights? I can picture a craft such as this needing to pass over a rural area en route to another destination. If so, would it not make sense to go completely dark? No lighting whatsoever? A black craft in a black sky with no lights would very likely not be noticed by the average person, yet the lighting configuration of almost all of these craft go completely against the normal pattern of military thinking.

Clearly, this phenomenon isn't a figment of people's imaginations. There have been far too many sightings in far too many states by qualified eyewitnesses to dismiss this as just one craft, or a flight of daredevil ultralight pilots in formation, or a military spy blimp. Multiple police officers observed and followed this type of craft during the now infamous Highland, Illinois incident in January of 2001. There's a great deal of data available regarding this incident which I'll go into later.

So let's take a look at some possible theories...

 TR-3B "Astra"

There has been much talk of this so-called TR3B anti-gravity craft originally brought to light by the controversial Edgar Fouche. I won't go into too much detail about his credentials and questionable background, you can research that on your own here. In a nutshell, this supposedly triangular craft meets most of the criteria of a 'nearly silent, giant black delta' craft. But again, WHY would the military knowingly and willingly reveal this craft to the populace, even if it's at night, and even if it's in a rural area? Is it accidental? Is it a remotely piloted craft not responding to commands? Can you imagine the fallout if one of these craft were to crash in a populated area?  None of these possibilities make any rational sense. Furthermore, the description of this craft given by Fouche and others in the aerospace industry do not exactly match descriptions given by the eyewitness's in NY, PA, IL and CA.

Military Spy Blimp

It's no secret that the military has had a distinct need for a very large low-observability surveillance platform with a long loiter time over target. A lighter-than-air vehicle with stealth capabilities would make perfect sense, and Lockheed, Boeing and Northrup Grumman have all explored this avenue (with as yet unknown results). The only military blimp to make it into the 'white world' is the U.S. Army’s Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) which flew for the first time from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ on August 7th. The only problem with the airship theory is that it rules out the majority of the sightings due to the sheer speed and acceleration characteristics. A blimp cannot accelerate from a near standstill to 600+ mph "like ice on a hotplate" as one Highland, IL police officer vividly described his sighting. The slow speed and 'faint humming' sound is certainly in line with the airship theory, but the acceleration and lighting characteristics are not.

Another Type of Military Anti-Gravity Craft?

Almost all of these sightings have the earmarks of an electrogravitic craft. Extremely slow speed combined with extreme acceleration. Silent operation, aside from a low 'humming' sound. Some witnesses even describe an electrostatic charge in the atmosphere: hair standing up on their arms and heads, and even overwhelming feelings of serenity and calm which in the past have been associated with exposure to intense electromagnetic fields. 

This still begs the question--why on earth would the military be flying quite possibly the most advanced piece of technology in it's inventory through the Hudson Valley, or above a series of small towns east of St. Louis? Well, in the case of the southern Illinois incident there's always the possibility that this craft was being tested out of the Boeing Phantomworks facility located at Lambert field in St. Louis, or even out of nearby Scott AFB. A close friend of mine was stationed at Scott AFB in a senior management position during the Highland sighting. I questioned this person regarding that event and they had no recollection of any unusual activity around the base at that time. Would this person have given up any details if there HAD been activity? Perhaps... or perhaps not. Regardless, the Highland incident would have been a major black eye for the military. Having multiple law enforcement officers communicating with eachother across multiple jurisdictions about an enormous, well-lighted delta shaped craft is the last thing the military--or an aerospace manufacturer--wants.

Clues to The Origin?

One possible clue to the origin of these black triangles may be found in the testimony of Dennis Bossack, a Rhode Island resident:
Dennis reports that on February 15, 1999, a triangle passed overhead heading west to east while he was driving on Route 138 north of Woodville. He lost sight of it due to the trees. A few days later, on February 20, he and his wife were sitting in their sunroom at 11:40 PM. They were watching a fox feed on bread they had put outside, when a craft appeared heading in a southerly direction. They stepped out on the porch for a closer look. Dennis states, "The craft passed over us silently, slowly, steadily and very low. The underside of it was dimly lighted by a hazy white light, thus making it possible to see the logo. The logo was a triangle edged in yellow containing the Earth being struck by two lightning bolts with the number '1' in the right hand corner. As it approached, a feeling of serenity and calm came over us making it a wonderful feeling to watch as it passed overhead. I estimate the speed of the craft at five to ten miles and hour. The size was approximately 40 feet in length and forty feet wide at the rear of the craft with the nose of the craft forming a point. The craft looked similar to a Stealth fighter, however it was a much larger plane.* The altitude of the craft was about one hundred feet, I repeat there was not a sound from the craft and it did not even create a breeze. I would appreciate any answers you might have to as what this craft is or who it belongs to." Thanks to Dennis Bossack. Editors Note: I have spent several hours on the phone interviewing Dennis who states the logo or insignia was five feet in diameter and at the front was the Omega symbol. The two lightning strikes that penetrate Earth begin at the 11 and 1 o'clock position. A similar lightning symbol was used by Roman soldiers conquering ancient Britain. The lightning strikes could infer a discharge of atmospheric electricity or perhaps intentions of colonizing Earth. We are also receiving strange communications from someone claiming to be Robert Omega. The Bossack's are respectable home owners mystified by this sighting.
*Note: The F-117 Nighthawk 65 feet in length with a 43 foot wingspan, so my guess is that Dennis' estimates on the size may have been slightly off or it may have been higher than 100 feet (which is incredibly low). When untrained observers witness something very unusual their sense of size and distance tends to be compromised. I suspect this craft was larger than 40 feet in diameter and very likely higher than 100 feet in altitude. But his detailed description of the craft's insignia is what's most important here.
Interestingly enough, his description of the insignia on this craft closely matches that of the US Space Innovation & Development Center out of Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. IF these craft are US military, then it would make sense that they are involved in space warfare and would be under the command of this division of the military.

Doing a bit more digging around I discovered several other military patches that match elements of Dennis' description, one of them (interestingly enough) being a Cadet Squadron at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Are we starting to see a pattern of triangular shapes, lightning bolts, the globe, yellow numerals and ties to Colorado? I certainly am.

David Wilcock wrote an excellently in-depth and informative piece entitled "US Space Command: The Proof is in The Patches" which delves further into the symbology of military insignias. I highly recommend reading the article as it is truly a 'rabbit hole' worthy of falling into. We can only begin to guess at the origin and meanings behind patches such as these (note the #1 in the patch to the left). Trevor Paglen wrote a book about patches of the clandestine world which is also worth checking out.

But my main point here is that all of these elements point toward a man-made craft likely operated by the military in a space warfare/defense role. So WHY reveal these craft to people in areas of the country that make little sense? If these craft were routinely being seen in and around areas such as Nellis AFB, southern California and Tonopah, Nevada it would make perfect sense. But they're not only being seen there. Why the Hudson river valley? Why Pennsylvania? Why southern Illinois? WHY? There is a serious logic problem with all of this and it bothers me on multiple levels. These sightings make zero rational sense. Either the military has gotten extremely sloppy (unlikely) or one or more aerospace manufacturers have gotten extremely sloppy (equally unlikely).

This leaves us with our final possibility--that these craft are not military.

What if They're Not Ours?

So let's assume for the sake of this article that these craft are extraterrestrial in origin as many people believe (excluding Dennis' sighting). Well, that opens up a whole new can of worms, doesn't it? But I still question what their interest was/is in these particular areas. It could be anything.
  • Were they searching for something or someone?
  • Was this part of a sequence of abductions?
  • Were they interested in our nuclear power plants?
  • Or were they having some technical problems with no real intention of ever being spotted?
We simply don't know. But what we DO know is that these giant black triangles and enormous boomerangs don't seem to be fading into the background. In fact, they're being seen more and more not just in North America, but all over the globe. This fact alone starts to lend more credence to these things not being of earthly origin. The military has no need to spy on some kid in the countryside. Is this a system of acclimation on the part of the military if they're ours? Or conversely, visitors slowly getting people used to the idea of seeing a giant black delta craft in the skies above them? We don't have all the answers yet, but I do think we're getting closer.

Note: For further research into this topic, check out the report on "The Enigma of the Black Triangles" published by the National Institude of Discovery Sciences (NIDS) in 2004. NIDS no longer exists, but I managed to pull this report from and placed it on the TOR server for download.

Recommended Black Delta & Boomerang Videos:

UFO Hunters: Giant Triangles (S3/E1 - Full Episode)

Very detailed eyewitness sighting of a black delta craft from an experienced pilot:

Two terrified women film a boomerang/arrowhead shaped craft flying silently and slowly above the side of a highway 60 miles north of Bakersfield, California. Very good footage from two obviously frightened witnesses. Note the background sounds from the highway and total lack of aircraft-related sounds. Download entire 16 minutes worth of footage here.   

Very good video of triangular shaped craft over Murraysville, Pa in January of 2011. Murraysville was actually in the midst of a full-on UFO flap at this time:

Craft filmed in Michigan with an extremely unusual lighting pattern. Again, the eyewitness seems genuinely concerned about what it is:

ADDENDUM: Eyewitness Accounts

We received a first-hand eyewitness account of a black triangle craft up close and personal from one of our readers, Drew Hempel (he granted us permission to use his name): 
So summer 1997 I'm in the living room with my sister watching X-files.  The show ends.  I saunter over to the sliding door window out to the deck.  I see lights on the horizon -- across a field -- towards the West in a rural area.  I get my sister and she gets bored and goes in.  I rule out the lights -- not a helicopter, not car headlights, not a tower light, etc.  Large spheres each a different color doing inexplicable manuevers.  Suddenly I see the lights now attached to a craft heading directly towards our land -- again from the horizon.  It is now over our neighbors' forest -- so I can see it flying slow, low just over the large oak trees.  So probably 100 feet up.

So then the craft comes onto our land -- and it flies right over the hill and over the big oak tree on the edge of our yard.  I can see the full craft -- a perfect equilateral triangle.  I could have maybe hit it with a rock but I didn't dare take my eyes off the craft.  It was slow but making a humming noise.  Lights on each corner and in the center.  It then flew over our garage and driveway and continued over the forest on our land -- slowly moving west -- out across the river valley.

This was in Minnesota in the St. Croix river valley about an hour north of the Twin Cities.  So I looked up MUFON database and I discovered about half a dozen similar sightings - one in North Minneapolis - same thing slow and low -- right in the city!!  Another was on the other side of the St. Croix in Wisconsin only the person saw the craft take over at unimaginable speed.

So then I researched it more - I read Curt Sutherly's UFO Mysteries book which has a chapter on the big black triangles and I looked into Ed Fouche's claims and I watched the doc on the Belgium sightings online....

Your article with the logo info is new to me - I'm sure this is a secret military craft.  Nick Redfern sent me his document reference of a 1952 sighting of a big black triangle craft flying off a U.S. military airforce base in the U.K.

So I think this is Tesla-Nazi type technology that was experimental after WWII and has now been mass produced.

I'm not ruling out the "gray alien" bit but the vid you posted of someone witnessing the grays and a big "oriental" e.t. guiding them -- sorry but that sounds like a bunch of bunk to me.

Anyway I look forward to this mystery being solved -- hopefully -- it is something exciting to ponder for the future to reveal.

take care,

But Drew's account is only one of many. I've included several more eyewitness accounts from different states and different timeframes below. Where there's smoke, there's usually a fire... and the big black triangles aren't going away!

The following is a true and accurate account of my sighting in Seattle Washington which occurred in 1993. I believe it was in the month of November.

It was a Sunday night about 9:30. I often had occasion to be driving north about that time of evening on Sundays and I usually took the I-5 freeway. This time, however, I knew the freeway, northbound, was jammed up due to an accident. So I took an alternate route which eventually led me to what I think was East Marginal Way, right next to the main Boeing Aircraft facility in Seattle.

As I was traveling, northbound, I noticed three red lights low in the sky ahead of me and to my right. They were moving in unison, very slowly across my field of vision from east to west. At first I thought they must be the lights of a low flying plane, perhaps about to land. Then I thought, no, they must be helicopters because a plane, even if it was landing, wouldn't be moving that slowly. The trouble was, I couldn't actually see the craft or crafts that the lights were attached to.

They were, maybe, a half mile ahead of me, about 30 degrees to my right. Normally, I wouldn't have paid much attention to this because I'd been making that Sunday night drive past Boeing (although via the freeway) for twelve years. This is also not too far from the Sea-Tac Airport.

In all that time I'd seen plenty of airplanes and helicopters flying low in this area. But something was different this time. It took me a minute to realize what it was. It was the fact that the lights weren't  blinking. I thought that was odd. It seemed to me every airplane or helicopter I've ever seen flying at night had blinking lights. I squinted my eyes as I drove toward the lights, trying to see just what I was actually looking at.

Although I was now only about two blocks away from being directly under the flight path of these lights, I still could not make out what they were attached to. However, from their slow, steady movement, in unison, I was pretty sure all three of them were attached to a single object rather than being independent of each other.

By the time I was directly in line with their flight path, they were  about to enter the airspace above Boeing Field to my immediate left. At this point I was convinced it was a single, low-flying craft of some kind and I knew there was something very odd here. I pulled my car off to the side of the road and rolled down the window to get a better look. But the craft was now directly overhead so I had to get out of the car to see it.

I opened the car door and stepped out. Craning my neck to see the craft as it passed slowly directly over my head at an estimated altitude of less than 500 feet (Note: at the actual time of the sighting my impression was that the craft was perhaps only about 150 feet above me) I could see it was a gigantic black triangle. There is no other way to describe it because that's precisely what it was; a huge, black, triangle; not just
"sort of" triangular shaped, like one of those stealth jets I'd seen photos of.

It was just one big, three-sided, cookie-cutter-straight-edged, black, geometric shape; a triangle with one large, round unblinking red light at each of its three corners, flat up against the underside of the craft. There was a high, gray cloud cover that evening, subtly lit by the Seattle city lights in the distance. I could clearly and unobstructedly see the object like a huge, dense black silhouette against this gray ceiling.

I stood there almost not believing what I knew I was seeing. I actually said to myself, "Ok. What, exactly, are you seeing? You're going to want to remember every detail of this! Just the facts, now. What, exactly, do you see?" I made a mental inventory. "Black triangle. Red light on each corner, flat up against the underside of the craft. They don't blink. ...(Note: at this point it has proceeded on past me and was now over Boeing field) ...It looks like it's about seventy-five to a hundred feet above one of the main Boeing
hangars. It's moving very slowly. Maybe five miles per hour. It's heading west. It appears to be about the size of a football field."

Suddenly I realized, as I stood there in the dark on this quiet empty street, the object didn't make a sound! Maybe more than anything else, that's what made the whole thing so eerie. Something that huge, that close, moving through the air at a snail's pace should be making some kind of a sound. A hum. A rumble. Anything. But, no. It just moved across the sky like something out of a Steven Spielberg movie with the volume turned off.

I looked up and down the street to see if anyone else was witnessing this silent event, but the street was dark and empty in both directions. It occurred to me, however, that the thing had just passed directly over hundreds of cars on the freeway which was only a few miles east of where I was standing. I looked up again at the mysterious craft now blending into the dark horizon. I watched it until I couldn't see it anymore and then it was over.

I got back into my car and closed the door. The window was still open and I took another look. Nothing was there but the gray night sky, softly aglow from the distant city lights. It was as if nothing had happened. All the way home I just kept asking myself, "What the hell was that?"
I'm still wondering.

I saw this object on May 5th 2010 and documented it in writing, very dark night no moon was with 5 friends and we all noticed it slowly moving towards us , I relized it wasnt a plane when there was no sound. It was slowly moving above the trees about 100-150ft off the ground, I would guess its size at about 4 or 5 football fields long and at least 8 stories thick, when it turned and went vertical on its side away from us is when I saw the size, it had large pale white lights on its corners and its belly, it lasted around 5 mins and was gone, I called the sheriffs office and they had deputies that saw it too. This happened around 10 at night in Olathe Kansas.

Me and my friend were driving back from a party in the town of George back to Mossel Bay South Africa. It was exactly 12.12 midnight Friday 24th August 2012. We saw a big, dark triangular craft hovering very low next to the N2 highway. It didn't move for at least 2 minutes and didn't hear any loud noise. It then started moving very slowly across the highway, turned and moved west over the sea picking up speed and suddenly leaped forward until it was only as bright as the evening star, but yellowish. I followed it for at least 10 minutes in the sky moving like a sattelite, but with sudden pauses and leaps of speed in between flight. The triangle seemed to have been belly up when we saw it first with bright red lights in two corners and a yellowish pulsating light in the other corner. I saw this type of craft once before in the year 2000 near Hartbeespoort dam, Pretoria, SA also around midnight. That one was much bigger with a red light in each corner and a bright white light shining down in the ground....a milky substance to it. The 2000 sighting lasted 5 minutes and the craft was also next to our car on a highway and very low. I looked away and when I looked back it was gone! Can anyone please tell me what this is?

I saw one on May 5th, 2012. We've had a lot of different types of sightings here in Los angeles since Jan 2012. I guess there are 2 types of triangles. There's the Triangular object with the red light underneath. I heard that might be our military (see Aurora project-US government). Then there is the other flying V object. This is a V shaped UFO, not triangle, seen in Phoenix in 1997 by 10,000 people. This one is probably ET. I live south of the LAX airport and was on my balcony at 9 pm. While looking up at the stars, a cloaked V shaped (not triangle) was seemingly floating over my balcony at the same distance as a plane. It was totally silient and totally black but I could see the outline and the outline of the five lights total running along the "v". These were blacked out but a dark grey color. Nothing was on, no lights. It was cloaked. I even saw a "wobble" over the craft like looking at it through water. It took about 5 minutes to totally get out of my view. A few people posted on MUFOn that they saw it too. Not sure what this means to us though. Are they touring? surveying? Bored, lol? I guess more to come on this issue!

I saw one just outside of Washington, D.C. in a suburban neighborhood in the middle of the night. It was so close I could have thrown a stone and hit it. It was flat black in color,triangular in shape, about 300' on a side and moving very slowly. It wasn't flying in the conventional sense of the word, it was just sliding through the air about as fast as a person walks, totally silent. It had a low light on each corner and no visible seams or openings. The technology employed is nothing we have on this world so the only conclusion I can come to is it is other-worldly. I would tell you more but I don't know anymore.

I saw one of these about 2-3 weeks ago an I live in Central Valley of California. It was HUGE and was a perfect black triangle. I got off work at my job at Costco and arrives home at about 10:45 pm. The object was massive and black with a light at each point. The front one blinked like on any regulation aircraft. It was flying VERY low an VERY slow. It made almost no noise except for a high pitch electric motor like sound, not the usual jet engine noise. It was pretty scary at first, but at the same time I couldn't turn away and I watched it for about 5 minutes as it cruised off into the distance. It was the largest aircraft I have ever seen though, and oddly enough I told this story to a co worker last night and he said he saw the same thing when he lived in San Jose about 10years ago but this object was incredibly loud. He said the object he saw was incredibly large as well.
