Eyewitnesses all over the country are reporting glimpses of something large, dark and mysterious in the skies above big cities and busy highways. The crafts are often described as triangular in shape, silent in their movements, and of unknown origin, and they’ve been seen here in southern Nevada. It looks like these mystery craft might be a secret military project, but if so, why are they flying around in the open?

“Look at them, there’s three or four of them.” In 1997, thousands of eyewitnesses watched in awe as a boomerang-shaped formation of lights cruised slowly and silently over the city of Phoenix. “They’re lined up in a pattern.” Witnesses first thought these were separate lights, flying in formation, but quickly realized the lights were all part of a single, gigantic something.

Military officials were asked about the Phoenix lights but said they hadn’t seen anything. Months later, they explained that a National Guard unit had been training with flares near the city. The public didn’t buy it.

Eight years earlier, the airspace over Belgium was repeatedly violated by huge unidentified black triangles. Ten thousand witnesses saw them. Several were photographed. The Belgian Air Force dispatched F-16s to intercept and destroy the unknown intruders, but the triangles performed maneuvers that seem virtually impossible.

Dr. Colm Kelleher said, “They launched on several occasions top of the line military aircraft against these things and they were left in the dust. One minute they’re overhead, and the next they’re over the horizon.”

Dr. Kelleher is a research scientist who spent several years with the National Institute for Discovery science, or NIDS, a private Las Vegas science organization. A four-year NIDS study of the mystery triangles has found that these craft have been seen for decades all over the world.

There were a daylight sightings in Russia in the 70s. In the early 80s, there were hundreds of nighttime sightings in rural New York. Belgium was inundated in the late 80s, but more recently, the mystery triangles have really come out of the closet and have been seen in every state, including Nevada, flying low and slow over cities.

Dr. Kelleher describes, “These things are huge, football field sized. Sometimes they are stealthy; sometimes flying with very bright lights, disco-flashing lights — red, green, blue, some bright white lights. They’re always silent.”

NIDS now has a database of more than a 1,000 black triangle reports, 17 of them from Nevada. The witnesses often say the craft seem to float, like a blimp or airship, but they are also capable of aeronautical magic.

“They were able to drop altitude 10,000-20,000 feet in a matter of seconds. They went from a hovering position to several thousand miles an hour, and this was caught on radar,” said Dr. Kelleher.

“It was heading straight north. The right edge was over that tree.” Las Vegas journalist Cateland White was in the backyard of her southeast Las Vegas home last year when she saw a dark behemoth fly over. She drew a picture and described, “It was triangular shaped with rectangular reflectors. No interior light at all. By the time it got out of sight, it was 5-8 minutes. It was so slow, I couldn’t figure out how it was staying in the air.”

White called the police, who connected her to Nellis Air Force Base, which is the direction the triangle seemed headed. “The man said, ‘I don’t want you to talk about this anymore, and you’re gonna forget it.’ I said, ‘Look buddy, I’m not drinking, I’m not on drugs, something is headed for your base.’ Then he got real terse and said, ‘Mam, I’m gonna tell you one more time and this is the last time I’m gonna tell you. Forget what you saw and don’t tell anybody.’ At that point, I was freaked,” described White.

The frequent proximity of triangle sightings to air force bases led NIDS to conclude two years ago that the craft must be part of a secret military project. But in the two years since, the triangles have become so prevalent over big cities and interstate highways that the theory doesn’t fit anymore.

Dr. Kelleher said, “Why would unacknowledged aircraft be flying at 500 feet over populated areas? If you look at the B-2 and F-117, prior to them being acknowledged, there was no flying over populated areas. They flew in the desert. They flew at high altitudes.”
