December 1999 Triangle UFO Reports
THE DISCOVERY OF THE MILLENNIUM
“…a bright fluro coloured trail…”
12.41GMT Adelaide Australia +9hrs= 21.11 local time
Four eyewitness observed a bright light which suddenly ‘appeared out of nowhere in the sky’. At first it was mistaken for a police helicopter with it’s searchlight on, but with closer inspection they seen that it was a bluish light and not white like a searchlight. The eyewitness who reported this sighting states, "…it all of a sudden spurted out a bright fluro coloured trail…the same sort you get with a gas flame…that colour blue…it seemed to spit out the flame which made it move…and then again stopped…spat once, then twice, the flame came spinning out of its end and started to move off again. Then to our surprise as we watched, it just disappeared…” “...into thin air …” This reporting eyewitness also describes how this UFO, “...reminded him of a Star Trek like spaceship…” (1)
This particular eyewitness report of a UFO which resembled a ship from ‘Star Trek’ is interesting as well as echoing my 2001 account of a ‘gas blue’ they may as well be describing the alien spacecraft on NASA frame STS103-734-73.(2) The light trails were another feature that I concentrated my focus on as they were extremely pronounced and notable. I later went on to learn that these were plasma ejections. I even later discovered plasma bubbles at various stages of decay on the NASA STS103 Hubble images in 2012 on frame STS103-734-76.(3
“…bright star like object…”
11.30GMT Nevada -8hrs = 03.30 local time

After this encounter took place the reporting eyewitness later drove past Indian Springs Air Base stating that the base was extremely active, “...it was like the middle of the day...it was like all hell had broke loose…” (1)

Forty-five minutes later, another sighting was then reported roughly 37 miles away in Gloucestershire by a dog walker who observed a close range object, which first appeared to be “…a large white light…” silently approaching. The reporting eyewitness described this object as a “…incredibly large…” triangular shaped UFO which, “…had many different colours moving about inside of it...” and was, “…as big as an open daily newspaper (held) at arm's length. We're talking at least two feet across the sky...”

‘’...a huge black triangle with lights on it...’’
03.00GMT Orangeville Canada -5hrs = 22.00 local time
Only thirty minutes later, 500 miles away, another two hour sighting then began to unfold. This event was observed by a father and son first noticing three bright lights moving all over the sky they pulled over and got out their car to observe this strange spectacle. This eyewitness also reported that every so often other objects would appear, "…out of nowhere…" and fly up to the stationary craft.(3)
(Like my encounter on the 11th) This reporting eyewitness also states that another two huge black triangular shaped craft were also observed during the two hour duration of this sighting.
Full NUFORC reporting eyewitness statement:
‘’My dad and i were outside driving and we saw 3 bright lights in the sky just zipping all over. We stopped and got out and the objects just stopped and hovered. Then there were at least 3 dimly lit spherical crafts flying and hovering all over each one of the crafts. Every so often 1 or 2 other craft would come out of no where and fly right up to the stationary craft. Then they would fly off and up into the sky till you couldn't see them anymore. About once an hour a huge black triangle with lights on it would fly pretty close to the ground just like it was paroling and up through the atmosphere. Then another black triangle took up a hovering formation with the other craft.’’ (4)
17.00GMT Villetaneuse France +1hr=18.00 local time
A triangular shaped craft was reported performing ‘zig zag’ manoeuvrers. The reporting eyewitness states that this UFO had four lights under it. One in each corner and one in the centre. The reporting eyewitness added that, ‘’...it was really crazy and after 9 years i cannot forget this strange scene.’’ (5)
This eyewitness account clearly demonstrates that these triangular shaped craft are simply not confined to the United States. There were many independently reports that identify this exact same lighting configuration made during these four weeks. Worldwide triangular UFO sightings during December 1999 had already been reported in Arizona, California, Canada, England, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Scotland, Washington, and Wisconsin and also in France. (See triangular UFO footnotes and references)
At the time of writing Corroborating Evidence it remained unclear if these were extra terrestrial or man-made craft, although I was able to present the large number of reports identifying this kind of UFO in five different countries.
02.30GMT Fulton Arizona -6hrs=20.30
Another sighting report details that a large black triangular craft was reported to have been observed moving slowly and silently at a low altitude before shooting off at speed.(5)
