A California witness at Fresno reported watching a triangle-shaped object with seven, blinking white lights, according to testimony in Case 83410 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was stepping out of a restaurant with a friend at 9 p.m. on April 26, 2017, when the incident began.
“I looked up in the sky and saw a triangle-shaped craft with seven white lights blinking all at the same time heading west,” the witness stated. “It was very clear and seemed too large to be an aircraft.”
The witness alerted the friend who thought it might be an airplane.
“I thought it might be a drone at first glance. But it was too large and too high in altitude to be a drone. The object made no noise. It seemed to be well above 500 feet at about 80-degrees above the horizon when we first spotted it. The lights were much larger than the usual lights that appear on aircraft and were brighter than typical aircraft lights. It was moving slowly.”
The witness then noticed a change in the object’s lighting.
“When the craft was about 50-degrees above the horizon, the right-side lights (three of them) stopped shining, so that the craft appeared to be a straight line of four lights blinking all at the same time. I stopped looking at it when it was about 45-degrees above the horizon. I estimate that it took about two minutes to move from 80-degrees to 45-degrees. I really don't know what kind of craft it was and didn't consider it to be a UFO at first. I didn't lose sight of the craft. I just stopped looking at it. After the event, I realized I may have viewed a possible UFO.”
California MUFON Field Investigator Hady Felfly investigated this case and closed it as Unidentified Aerial Vehicle.
