'Huge' triangle UFO flyover 'freaks out' Alabama witness-helicopters follow
A witness in Helena, Alabama, reports that a "huge" triangle UFO with bright lights flew over their home on the evening of March 8, 2013.
The unnamed witness told the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) that they were home watching television at about 9:40 PM when they noticed "a very bright white light" flying toward their home.
Their home is on a mountain top, with a view that extends for miles. As the bright light approached, the witness grabbed a cell phone to take video and stepped outside on to their deck to investigate. However, MUFON reported that no video was submitted with the witness report.
The approaching object flew directly overhead at an altitude of 100 to 125 feet. The witness described the UFO as "huge, triangular, dark in color, with maybe 20 lights on the underside. It looked to be maybe 150 feet wide at the rear."
The witness compared what they observed to a stealth fighter, "but 5 times bigger," and estimated that it was flying no faster than 50 miles per hour.
The craft was quiet until it flew overhead, when "it got loud," according to the witness. They described the sound, "like jet engines spooling down."
As the UFO passed overhead, the witness ran through their house and out the front door to shoot more video of it, but the object was already out of sight.
The experience, "freaked me out completely" wrote the witness.
For days after the sighting, the witness claimed that chinook helicopters flew constantly around the area behind their home.
Original (unedited) witness report:
At about 9:40 Central time on 3/8/13, I was watching tv. I noticed a very bright white light coming towards my house. I live on top of mountain and can see for several miles over the Cahaba Management area. I grab my phone and go out on the deck and watch it approach. I cant hear anything until it is right on top of me. It was maybe 100/125 feet above me and it was huge, triangular, dark in color,with maybe 20 lights on the underside. It looked to be maybe 150 feet wide at the rear. It looked to moving maybe 50 mph max. As it crossed above me it got loud. The sound was like jet engines spooling down. It crossed over my towards Bessemer airport. I ran through the house and out the front door to video some more but I could no longer see it. This thing looked like a Stealth fighter but 5 times bigger. Way too big to land at Bessemer. It freaked me out completely. Since then, there have Chinooks behind my house constantly.
