Indiana Dad spots a silent triangle moving overhead | Roger March

According to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), a witness from Indiana in West Lafayette reported seeing three large, white lights in a triangle formation around 6 p.m. on February 14, 2022.

“I was a passenger in a car my daughter was driving, traveling from the Granville Bridge to West Lafayette along the Wabash River, when I looked out the window and saw three large white lights in a roughly triangular formation above the river’s tree line 200 feet up and about 200 feet apart and they didn’t move.”

The witness said the lights remained in limbo as they drove past.

“They were visible between the branches that had no leaves. We haven’t stopped. My daughter couldn’t see the lights from her seat while driving and couldn’t see through the car roof. I know this area very well and there are no tall buildings in this floodplain near where Wea Creek meets the Wabash.”

The witness ruled out known aircraft.

“It wasn’t a plane that landed at Purdue University Airport as this is an exit ramp where small vehicles take off and fly across the river like I saw them kayaking in the river a few years ago and their engine noise really screws it up to shoot a video.”

The witness said the triangle of lights never broke the formation.

“No other lights on the vehicle were visible, nor did the lights change color or change their circular shape, which I estimated to be about two meters in diameter. No engine noise was detected above the noise of our own car engine or wind noise. I couldn’t see the outline of the vehicle as it was dark outside.

“Nobody flies drones in this area, nor could a drone carry lights that big. I was too amazed at the sighting to grab my camera and take some photos or video. I had never seen anything like this before and didn’t know the story of whether this was an alien or something our own special ops programs had built. I didn’t know if this type of ship ever did any mischief like kidnapping people, so we didn’t stop to see what it was up to. I suspect it was monitoring airport activities.”

An Indiana Witness in Michigan City, according to testimony in MUFON Case 98437, reported seeing a triangular UFO just 50 feet away.

The witness walked down the Lake Michigan pier on October 30, 2018.

“It was overcast and when I made it to the lighthouse, I sat and watched the vehicle come out of the fog about 50 feet from me,” the witness said. “I could see the gray being in the ship. A beam of light hit me. I felt frozen and could feel the energy in my head. I felt them take everything I had learned. I could see myself studying at school. I could see everything I had ever learned. I suddenly felt frozen when the light went out. Suddenly, the vehicle took off high in the air toward Chicago. When it was with me, it was only about 50 feet from me and about a meter from the water of Lake Michigan. As it took off, it flew high in the sky to Chicago.

“I had dreams and sketched a picture of what I saw.”

investigator notes

Indiana MUFON Jeremy Efroymson closed this case as an unknown aircraft.

“The witness repeated his testimony and added details,” Efroymson explained in his report. “Said he was frozen in fear. The ET communicated with him telepathically, replaying moments from his life while telling him, “Everything will be fine.” A cloudy haze or mist lay over the water. The ship suddenly appeared. At first he only saw a bright light. He could see a gray alien in the cockpit operating a translucent control panel. The vehicle backed up slowly and then started toward Chicago. The lights gradually went out. The vehicle was 50 feet away and five feet above the waves. It was angular. Forty feet in front, 60 on the sides and 120 feet in the back.

“The witness was definitely scared by what he saw. He took a close look at the vehicle and its occupant, a “gray alien.” He also provided a detailed sketch of the chevron-shaped vehicle and the occupant’s hand.”
