'Sinister-looking' black triangle craft with 4 lights over Kentucky

Date: September 30, 2005
Location: Paducah, Kentucky, United States

The witness was going home when he encountered "a sinister looking thick flat black triangle with rounded edges and four large white lights under it. [It was] flat across the bottom." The apparent size of the object was two feet across at arm's length. There was a "very low rumble that seemed to be behind and higher up than the [object]."

Witness: "Here is my best effort at what I seen that night."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Paducah, Kentucky is the location of the only operating uranium enrichment facility in the United States. Owned by the U.S. Department of Energy, it is leased and operated by the United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC). According to USEC, the facility "produces low-enriched uranium fuel for commercial nuclear power plants in the United States and around the world."

UFOEvidence.org received a second, similar report from almost the same location, about three weeks earlier. That report from Murray, Kentucky on September 4, 2005, also described a triangular or V-shaped shaped craft. Please see the full case, including sketches by the witnesses, at the following URL:

Murray, Kentucky is less than 50 miles from Paducah.]

Description of Area/Surroundings:

"It was urban, well lit for night houses and trees main streets. No military bases or power plants but there is a uranium enrichment plant."

Full Description and Details:

"I was going home on foot toward the north side of the city at 4:55 a.m. It was a cool, clear night when I looked up to my right and seen four large bright white lights. Since there is no tall buildings or towers in that area, they stood out and the fact that they were in the shape of a triangle. As I got closer, I could see the outline of the craft that was shaped like a thick triangle with rounded off edges. Under it was four large white lights. One on the front, one on each corner and one in the back that lined up with the light on the front edge. It was a flat black color like stealth aircraft have. It was not a helicopter and it did not have the pop and click of a main rotor or the shape of a helicopter. It had no Nav lights of green or red. It made no noise until I got closer. I heard a very low rumble that seemed to be behind and higher up then the aircraft. As the craft moved, I heard no noise. It headed southwest low at a slow speed."

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

"No. There is no man-made aircraft civil and military like it."

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting:

"Before I was not sure but I tried to keep an open mind. Now I believe there is something out there. I seen it with my own eyes! I love to read and knew of UFOs, but never really studied them."

Other Comments:

"I am not sure what to say but I would gladly take a ploygraph test if that is what is needed. I seen this craft and I will not deny it to anyone. It is very real."
