Triangle-shaped UFOs accounted for about 9 percent of worldwide reports for 2016 – 511 cases as the second most popular shape reported to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Spheres were the most reported shape with 863 cases or about 15 percent. These numbers are based on 5,591 worldwide reports where the case occurred during 2016.
Reviewing all 2016 triangle cases, about 35 percent closed as an Unknown object – or 182 cases. From that group, 39 percent were cases reporting the object under 500 feet – 71 reports.
Like all good UFO reports, cases occur at random locations with little sense of why the objects are in certain areas. MUFON Members can read on for a triangle feature from our July 2016 UFO Journal that tracks 15 compelling cases from January 1, 2016, to May 21, 2016. Read the report.
