UFOGrid has been reporting about the recent surge in sightings of triangle shaped UFOs across the United States.

Triangle shaped UFOs have been reported for decades by law enforcement officials and civilians alike.   In the U.S. southeast, sightings have been so common at times that locals have given the huge UFOs nicknames like "Big Bertha."

The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) received 86 reports of triangle UFOs in November, several of which have been reported by UFOGrid. Roger Marsh, editor of the MUFON UFO Journal details the November sighting reports: -Editor

Three days into December 2012 and only a single UFO report has been filed for the triangle shape, while low flying triangle UFOs seemed to be a frequent reporting description during November 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

MUFON recorded 86 U.S. triangle UFOreports during November 2012 where the event occurred during November. The number of reports made for this shape is typical for 2012 monthly reporting. Please keep in mind that the number may increase over time as people report events that occurred during that month in the future.

The single triangle report for December occurred in Hobart, IN, on December 2, 2012, where the object was described as "sleek and a dark metal color with no windows, no landing gears" in Case 44284.

No further information was available on the Indiana case as MUFON investigates.

The following is a list of November cases we're watching as the MUFON investigations continue, including cases that were previously covered here, and the final case disposition - if available - is included. When a report is closed as an Unknown, MUFON investigators have ruled out Mother Nature and anything man made.

November triangle reports began at 8 p.m. on November 1, in Merlin, Josephine County, OR, with Case 43656, a report that has since been closed as an Unknown.

"I live on two acres in the country with a good view of the sky," the reporting witness stated. "I walked out to look at the stars and noticed lights coming low and slow from out of the west. I called my wife to come out and look because the lights were coming from an unusual direction. I didn't know what it was. I just knew it wasn't an airplane because airplanes are my hobby.

"It was a triangle-shaped object with a cluster of lights in the front followed by a red blinking light in the center and another light close to that. At first it looked like two separate crafts, but as it got closer we could see that it was one big one. It headed towards the north and then banked towards the east and then disappeared. There was no noise at all."

8:50 p.m., Tacoma, Pierce County, WA, Case 43999.Under investigation.

6:30 a.m., Harrisburg, Saline County, IL, Case 43659. Under investigation.

10 a.m., Cherokee County, GA, Case 43672. Under investigation.

6:35 p.m., Phoenix, Maricopa County, AZ, Case 43729. Under investigation.

November 3, 2012

5:30 p.m., Katy, Waller County, TX, Case 43835. Completed - Unknown. "We noticed the green sphere-like object in the sky and both observed that it was moving back and forth and up and down," the witness stated. "We both knew this was not a plane. There also was another, smaller object. The pictures were taken between two and four seconds apart, so it was moving at a great speed. There is a small airport nearby, and we are very familiar with the landing and flight patterns, also colors of airplanes. There is a green outline in the clouds, and it looks like a green beam going downward. The object changed shape or possible turned over, and went to the south where it seemed to join with a cloaked, large object, which can be seen in the last photos. It looks like a cloud, but there is a clear outline of a huge disk, and cloud/vapor trail coming from the south/southwest."

9:35 p.m., Denver, Denver County, CO, Case 43686. Under investigation.

10:30 p.m., Portsmouth, Bristol County, RI, Case 44005. Under investigation.

November 4, 2012

9 p.m., Rodeo, Contra Costa County, CA, Case 43713. Under investigation. Case originally covered as: Witnesses report low and slow moving objects over California.

9:10 p.m., Herculaneum, Jefferson County, MO, Case 43707. Completed - Unknown. "Observed three lights forming a triangle in the sky," the witness stated. "The lights stayed on and did not blink. I was able to determine that the object that the lights were attached to was dark and triangular-shaped. The object seemed fairly large. When I first observed the object it was hovering. I watched it for what seemed to be 30 seconds. All of a sudden the lights flashed very brightly and the object took off at a very high rate of speed. I also heard a 'whooshing' sound that did not sound like a helicopter or airplane." Field Investigator: "The area of the sighting is VERY interesting. Herculaneum is located on the banks of the Mississippi River, Scott AFB is just across the Mississippi River in Illinois, and Herculaneum is the location of the largest integrated lead producer in the Western Hemisphere and the 3rd largest producer in the world. If something 'unknown' was to be seen hovering, this would be a likely area considering information obtained from previous sighting reports referencing water, mining areas and military bases as active areas."

November 6, 2012

4:50 a.m., Hazelwood, St. Louis County, MO, Case 43755. Closed - Unknown. "Noticed what I thought was an airplane fly across the highway," the witness stated. "It got above the field to the side of the highway I was on. I pulled over and watched it descend down while flying back over to the highway right over my car. The first time I saw it the only reason I noticed it was because it was hovering over the bridge like just above it making it maybe 100 feet above my car."

5:30 p.m., Jackson County, MO, Case 43750. Closed - Unknown. "We noticed a bright ball of light hovering over a central monument, Liberty Memorial," the witness stated. "We were curious and drove toward this part of town, only a five minute drive to reach this monument. We got there and the object began to move northwest at a slow stall and unusually low altitude. It became a jet. It flew low enough for us to see in detail the underbelly with no markings, all white non-commercial jet making no sound. Our car did not vibrate as expected to be directly under a jet. I watched as the jet slowly passed over our windshield and then looked at it through the moon roof briefly. We were driving 25 mph. The scale was 2/3 the space of our moon roof. It took approximately three seconds to cross the moon roof view. It kept up its northwest flight path with a constant speed and altitude."

7:25 p.m., Coshocton County, OH, Case 43780. Under investigation.

November 8, 2012

8:15 p.m., Calabash, Brunswick County, NC, Case 43813. Closed - Unknown. "A triangularly-shaped red light formation appeared, however, this was much, much, much different," the witness stated. "This object was approximately 40 feet tall and I would estimate at its widest point at least a quarter-mile wide.Truly amazing and scary at the same time. Each point of the triangle had its own red light and the ship flew with no sound and only 100-200 feet off the ground over houses and out towards the beach.The flashing white lights and orange orbs are very common in my area and no one knows anything. Hundreds of videos uploaded on Youtube and nothing."

12 a.m., Panama City, Bay County, FL, Case 43804. Under investigation.

4:10 a.m., Overland Park, Johnson County, KS, Case 43796. Under investigation.

6:25 p.m., Troy, Oakland County, MI, Case 43802. Under investigation.

7:40 p.m., Jacksonville, Duval County, FL, Case 43834. Closed - Unknown. "I glanced upward and saw a very unusual 'airplane' at about 80 degrees," the witness stated. "It was triangle-shaped (equilateral) and had softly glowing white light along its two forward edges. It appeared to be sub-divided by softly glowing light into six smaller equilateral triangles. It was moving at a high rate of speed in a straight-line flight path and I estimate that it was at an altitude of 5,000 feet. The object passed directly overhead and was silent. The object seemed to disappear when it was at about 70 degrees from my position. I estimate the duration of the event at between five and seven seconds."

10:05 p.m., Parkville, Platte County, MO, Case 43807. Closed - Unknown. "The object was about 200 or so feet above the tree line, but there were no sounds or wind gusts," the witness stated. "A helicopter flying that low would definitely give off some sound. I thought this was really strange, so I slowed down to about 15 mph because there were no other cars on the road at the time. I noticed the lights were in a triangle shape but I couldn't make out what was connecting the lights. The object was either transparent or blended very well with the night sky. The bright white light was on top. This light was the biggest and brightest. The smaller red and blue lights were underneath this main white light, forming the outline of the triangle shape. All the lights were flashing and becoming brighter at random times. When I was closest to the UFO I noticed it was not moving at all and was just hovering very low to the ground, maybe 200 or so feet above the tree line. I had to make a quick turn and I lost sight of it."

3 a.m., Alcona County, MI, Case 43814. Under investigation.

6:28 p.m., Castle Rock, Cowlitz, WA, Case 43828. Closed - Unknown. "Three totally silent, solid, reddish orange glowing spheres forming an equilateral triangle," the witness stated. "Size: Each sphere approximately the size of a dime held out at arm’s length. The three objects were close enough to my car that I almost stopped my car as I actually feared that they might block the road, but they stayed hovering where they had been the whole time so I continued southbound on Si Town Road. They were totally silent. They did not blink, rotate or change color. They maintained a constant luminosity until the end of this event. They were each very bright and each sphere was about as big around as a dime held at arm’s length."
