A Virginia witness at Chesapeake reported a triangle-shaped object flying at 500 feet that appeared to cloak itself and disappear, according to testimony in Case 81613.
The witness was outside star gazing at 8:05 p.m. on January 18, 2017, when the incident began.
“It was flying low, maybe around 500 feet or so, almost directly over my house,” the witness stated. “It was triangular in shape and had three lights near each angle. It was traveling at approximately 100-200 mph and I was only observing it for approximately five seconds before it faded away in what appeared to be it cloaking itself.”
“When it was visible, it seemed like it was already semi-cloaked, and the three lights were not bright, but still visible enough to where I could make out its triangular shape and exact placement of its lights. This object made zero noise. I was a military police officer and have seen some questionable things in the sky, but never anything like this. Absolutely amazing experience. I live in a heavily populated area with a heavy military presence. There are always aircraft in the sky. After I observed this object, I continued to look at the sky and observed aircraft flying in ways they normally don't as if they were searching for something.”
Virginia MUFON Field Investigator Norman Gagnon investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown.
“The witness's background includes being an Army National Guard Com. Specialist and was a Marine Corps military police officer. He’s a straightforward sort of a guy with a keen eye for details. I believe he gave great details of what he saw that evening even though the object was exposed only briefly prior to its disappearance.”
