Two sightings of triangle UFOs were reported about an hour apart in North Carolina on February 24, 2013.

Roger Marsh of the Mutual UFO Network filed this report for MUFON- Editor

Two North Carolina UFO reports about an hour apart from each other on February 24, 2013, seem to describe the same objects, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

At 6:50 p.m. on February 24, 2013, in Rockingham, NC, the first witness was driving along Richmond Road when two objects were seen in Case 45877.

"I could see some light just over the trees and as I watched them they seemed to be moving very slow - much slower than C130 transport planes that we often see in the area," the witness stated. "It was almost like it was gliding or hoovering. As the area opened up some and there was less trees I could clearly see that there were two of the objects - one behind the other."

The witness pulled over to better observe the objects and get a photograph, and noticed that there was no sound coming from the objects.

"The objects then banked to their right and I could not get a picture of them. I started my truck up and tried to follow them to try and get a better spot to view them. As I crossed the stoplight which is less than 500 yards from where I pulled in to park I noticed that they had picked up speed and were moving faster. By the time I got another 1-2 miles down the road they were far enough away from me that I could not follow them."

The last thing the witness saw was what appeared to be an airplane moving toward the objects. Upon arriving home, a jet moved low over the witnesses' home.

"Two big airplanes (C130 I guess) came flying over just above tree top level going in the same direction that the two objects were going. They were low enough to vibrate the house. I went outside and noticed a lot of planes in the sky (small blinking lights)."

Then at 7:45 p.m. on February 24, 2013, in Graham, NC, about 100 miles northeast of Rockingham, another witness reported watching two objects with pulsing red lights and an "occasional white light" that could not be identified in Case 45891.

"The objects moved slowly at the same altitude and speed," the witness stated. "One followed the other. Distance between was probably 100 feet (approximate), far too close for most airplanes. They were as big as passenger airliners which we can hear when they go over our house. These were perfectly silent and moving slowly. The distance between the two vehicles never varied nor did their altitude. It was like what you would see if one car were pulling another with a rigid tether between them."

Watching the objects then with binoculars, the witness says lights could be seen at each of three points on each object that formed a triangle shape.

"I would say that we observed them travel from south to north with only one slight veering to the west and then back to a direct south-north direction for a distance of 12 miles. We have open vistas. There were other aircraft in the area as usual on normal flight patterns. Most are west to east or east to west. These craft just flew beyond our area of vision."

This second witness was aware of the first witness report at the time this sighting was filed.

Original (unedited) witness reports:

First report:

On February 24, 2013 as I was driving home from work at around 6:50pm, I noticed some lights in the sky. It was a full moon out and no clouds. I was on Richmond Rd in Rockingham, NC. This is a well lit residentual area. I could see some light just over the trees and as I watched them they seemed to be moving very slow much slower than a C130 Transport planes that we often see in the area. It was almost like it was gliding or hoovering. As the area opened up some and there was less trees I could clearly see that there was 2 of the objects. 1 behind the other. I pulled into the parking lot of roberdel Baptist Church to try and get a picture of them. As I pulled in and parked I turned my truck off and I already had my window down and these objects made no sound. The objects then banked to their right and I could not get a picture of them. I started my truck up and tried to follow them to try and get a better spot to view them. As I crossed the stoplight which is less than 500 yds from where I pulled in to park I noticed that they had picked up speed and were moving faster. by the time I got another 1-2 miles down the road they were far enough away from me that I could not follow them. I had already called home and told my wife to look outside and see if she could see anything but she could not. Right after they banked to the right I had noticed what seemed to be an airplane coming towards them. When I got home I told my wife what I had seen and she said it was probably something military , but not 5 minutes later after she said that, 2 big airplanes (C130 I guess) came flying over just above treetop level going in the same direction that the 2 objects were going. They were low enough to vibrate the house. I went outside and noticed a lot of planes in the sky(small blinking lights). It is now 7:15pm and I have to go and pick my daughter up from church. I tell her about it and as we are coming home she tells me that she sees some lights also. I could not see them because they were too far to the right side to look at and drive safely. When we get home we get out and notice 4 blinking lights that are in the shape of a square almost like helicopters in formation but no sound but at the distance they were I thought I would have heard something. They were flying from north to south. Time is about 7:45pm. 

I have never had an experience like this before because I can usually explain it away, but what got me on this was that there was no sound from the 2 boomerang objects and when they banked I could make out lines on one of them and then all the plane traffic in the area after that.

Second report:

Saw 2 objects that had mainly red lights that seemed to pulse but were always on and an occasional white light. The objects moved slowly at the same altitude and speed. One followed the other. Distance between was probably 100 feet (approximate), far too close for most airplanes. They were as big as passenger airliners which we can hear when they go over our house. These were perfectly silent and moving slowly. The distance between the 2 vehicles never varied nor did their altitude. It was like what you would see if one car were pulling another with a rigid tether between them. Looking through a monocular I could see three lights in tri-corner positions on both UFOs. I would say that we observed them travel from south to north with only one slight veering to the west and then back to a direct south north direction for a distance of 12 miles. We have open vistas. There were other aircraft in the area as usual on normal flight patterns. Most are west to east or east to west. These craft just flew beyond our area of vision. I read an entry on another sight that also occurred tonight about an hour earlier than ours that sounded similar to this one but from Rockingham NC which is approx. 2 hours south east from here. We observed this from our deck, then our front porch and then from the north side of our house in the yard. My husband had just walked outside to look at the stars and moon. The night sky was so clear and beautiful. We are star gazers. We are so familiar with aircraft because we live on a regular flight path and noticed immediately that these were different.
