13-106-AN1 (Romsley, England)

Date of Sighting: 15/05/2013

Time of Sighting: 21.45

Duration of Event: 5 minutes

Location of UFO: Romsley, West Midlands, England

Shape of Object: Triangle

UFO Report: Me and my brother were travelling back from Bromsgrove to Halesowen after our weekly Rugby training session. I always choose to go over the lanes and through Romsley instead of going down the motorway. The time was around 9.45 and it was dark due to it being pre-summer. Being the lanes, and being quite late, we were the only people on the road at the time. We were discussing the training session we had been to when out of the corner of my eye, to the right side of my car, I saw a huge white light. I slammed on my breaks, not even checking behind me for other cars such was my surprise at seeing it. I asked my brother, “What the hell is that!?” (I may have swore a little more…). My brother leaned across me to see what it was and was in shock himself. By now the single light had turned in to two lights. They were over a field, no higher than 1,000 feet and less than half a mile away. The two lights were absolutely huge, which is what makes me think it was so low and close. I asked my brother whether it was rectangular in shape but my brother pointed out it was triangular. By now our eyes had adjusted to the darkness and bright lights and it became easier to see the outline of the craft, which was indeed triangular, with the two bright lights being at the back. One thing that sticks in my mind is the speed at which the craft was moving. It was moving so slow that if I had carried on driving I’d have overtaken it. I pulled my car over and turned the engine off, at which point my brother pointed out how silent the craft was. There was no noise at all, something you’d expect if it was a plane or helicopter or any other machine. By now, although moving slowly, it began to get away from us behind a tree line. I must point out here that me and my brother were both absolutely petrified, shaking and actually crying. It’s something I’m not ashamed to admit, but at the same time, something I can’t explain. There was no reason for us to have been crying, but we both were all the same. I started my car up and, slowly, began driving again. By now the thing was behind the tree line and lost to us. It was about another 5 miles home and we never saw this thing again, even when the tree line had gone. However, when we approached the bottom of Romsley and began to descend in to Halesowen we noticed one singular light above Halesowen Town. The light, again, was huge but slowly moving upward whilst slowly getting smaller. Because of the speed it was moving up (slowly) I believe the light was simply diminishing out of choice, not because it was getting further away. Finally, it disappeared completely and we arrived home. I’m glad my brother was with me as I don’t think anyone would have believed me had I been alone.

13-105-CE3 (Skinwalker Ranch, Utah)


Update 28 Oct 13: The Aerial Phenomena Team visited Skinwalker Ranch from 17-21 Oct 2013. We are returning for phase 2 of the investigation in early 2014. Upon return of the second expedition, a report will be published.

Skinwalker Ranch, much like Area 51, has had its share of bizarre UFO lore and legend. Tales of interdimensional portals, alien abductions on the property, and yes, even bulletproof werewolves have attracted platoons of both seasoned and arm-chair UFO/Paranormal investigators to this reclusive ranch in Utah. Dubbed the “UFO ranch”, the property was once (and perhaps still is) leased by billionaire Robert Bigelow under the auspices of the National Institute for Discovery Science – a now-defunct fringe-science exploratory organization that attempted to study/obtain UFO/Paranormal evidence consistent with scientific publication.

Recent investigative research by API found that reports of alleged UFO activity continue at Skinwalker Ranch. In hopes of finding physical proof of such activity, therefore, API has planned two expeditions to the UFO Ranch (between September 2013 and March 2014). The results of the investigation, if any, will be a key topic at UFOCON14 in April 2014.

12-097-FBI (Gaithersburg, MD)


Synopsis: On 04 Dec 2012, at 1930 hours, the witness of this investigation was traveling east on Warfield Road between Germantown and Olney and saw three strange red lights. The witness stopped his vehicle, stepped out, and saw a large black triangle moving 15mph from east to west. According to the witness, the UFO was 150 feet wide, was made of what appeared as metallic, and was silent. The rear of the object had white and green lights.

Evidence Submitted: Sketch provided to investigators

Initial Action: Case opened as an FB1.

Investigation and Findings:  All investigative efforts were exhausted and the case was closed as unresolved. Investigator Note: Research regarding reports of black triangle UFOs dating back to 1980 were completed as part of this investigation.

However, none of these reports, including the sketches and photos, were similar to what the witness observed.

Object Details: Unidentified

11-015-FB1 (Davidsonville, MD)


Synopsis: On 08 Nov 11, at 2030 hours, the witness of this investigation was looking at a cornfield and noticed a large black triangle UFO flying low. The UFO changed directions and tilted towards where the witness was standing. The witness claimed the UFO was a black triangle and made little noise. According to the witness, the black triangle had three distinct white lights on each corner, a green light on one corner and a red light on the opposite corner. The UFO flew along Governors Bridge Road towards Route 50 until it was no longer within sight.

Evidence Submitted: Computer-rendered sketch.

Initial Action: This UFO case was opened as an FB1, a fly-by of a UFO that traveled in a straight line across the sky. A preliminary analysis of the report indicated a possible drone, perhaps the X-47B, which operates in the Maryland area.

Investigation and Findings: The investigators travelled to Davidsonville, MD and interviewed the witness of this investigation. The witness, who was the owner of the cornfield, alleged that the UFO flew over the cornfield for an unknown amount of time until it flew North toward Route 50. After the interview, the investigators conducted extensive research regarding man-made triangular aircrafts and drones that were being tested in the Maryland area. Given the description of the UFO, and that it was using FAA navigation and collision beacons, the object was more than likely an aircraft from the Patuxent Naval Air Station, which tests several UAVs in the area.

Object Details: Identified as an aircraft, type unknown.

12-001-CE1 (Black Triangle and Men in Black)


Synopsis: On 14 Oct 08, at approximately 2230 hours, two witnesses were standing outside of their hotel and saw a large triangular UFO with three white lights on all three sides and a pulsing red light in the middle of the craft. The UFO flew East to West until it was completely out of sight. Several weeks later, according to three other witnesses, two unidentified Men in Black visited the same hotel looking for the two witnesses who saw the UFO. Although the two witnesses were not at the hotel at the time, the Men in Black harassed the hotel staff for approximately 30 minutes. The MIB then left the hotel and never returned.

Evidence Submitted: Surveillance footage of the Men in Black

Initial Action: This UFO case was opened as a CE1, a Close Encounter of a UFO within 500 feet.

Investigation and Findings: The investigators interviewed all of the witness multiple times and where judged to be reliable and there was no evidence at the time to suggest the contrary.   Moreover, there were numerous UFO reports regarding this type of UFO sighting along the US and Canadian border, specifically during much of 2008 in the Niagara Falls area.  Many of these UFO reports were of a black triangle craft with three bright lights on its edges and a pulsing red light in the middle. Since there have been collaborative sightings and reports of the same UFO, the investigators concluded the witnesses did see an actual unknown aerial object.  However, there was no physical proof, beyond a reasonable doubt, to suggest the black triangle was of extraterrestrial origin. Furthermore, regarding the Men in Black account, the investigators conducted multiple telephonic interviews with the witnesses working at the hotel who personally spoke with the Men in Black.  The first-hand account testimony of these witnesses collaborates the Men in Black story related by the primary witness of this investigation. However, there was no proof to conclude whether or not the Men in Black were associated with the UFO report or for that matter if the event was hoaxed.

Object Details: Unidentified.
