Witness terrified by flying triangle
A member of the YUFOS Facebook page posted the following on 18 January, 2015
“My hands are still shaking but i'm going to do my best to describe what i just saw and experienced.
"I live in a Hamlet in North Yorkshire. Having just spent my evening watching various ufo documentaries and reading various articles (this is what makes this experience all the more terrifying and unbelievable for me) I rolled a cigarette and began to smoke it on the roof outside my window. I know the flight paths of planes well, as I watch the skies at night and day a lot, so I take a few puffs and spot the usual flashing lights of a plane, on the usual flight path, only it was going a little faster than it should have been. In my mind as i smoked i joked with myself that wouldn't it be funny/great if it was a ufo, moments later having progressively sped up, the light suddenly changed course and flew directly upwards, then changing direction once more proceeded to fly in my direction and flew maybe 200 feet above me and I lost view as it passed the roof. All of this happened (from when it began to fly upwards) in the space of about 5 seconds. The distance it travelled was incredibly far and the changes in direction were impossible.
"As i mentioned before my hands were shaking and they still are now. I was able to get an terrifyingly clear view of this craft as it flew over above me and have done a quick illustration on paint to post here.
"One of the most terrifyingly coincidental experiences of my life. Make of it what you will.”
In response to questions, the witness provided this further information:
“It happened at approx. 9.03 pm. It’s hard to say if everything went silent, it happened so fast and I was so shocked. I was absolutely focused on the object though, yes, I remember feeling sick and as though my organs were tring to escape my body (truly horrible feeling). It appeared to be roughly the size of a small house from the distance I saw it, far larger than a normal plane anyway. It was the speed in which it managed to come in my direction that scared me so much. Everything became strange as it happened, most likely a product of the fear I felt (or so I want to think for my sanity). I managed to get to sleep at about 4 in the morning... It was a paranoid night, and at one point when I was feeling extreme fear in my back the lights in my room flickered off and on. All coincidence, I hope. I think I need to train my mind to rid the fear and keep a more calm lookout for these things in the future. Where I live in the countryside has such a clear view of the sky at night and I have seen unexplainable things here before, twice since living here for 5 months. None were as real and as unexplainable as last night though so didn’t scare me whatsoever.”
