Sighting Reports 2006

Several See Triangular Craft Emitting Red Sparks & Then Disappear

Date of Sighting: January 20, 2006
Time of Sighting: 10:00 PM EST
Duration of Sighting: 25 Minutes
Date Reported: January 22, 2006
Location of Sighting: Hanover, Massachusetts
Latitude: 40.78 Degrees North
Longitude: 74.38 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Several (Exact Number Unknown)
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies and No Wind.

Description: This is very strange. It was on 1/20/06, clear skies, no wind whatsoever. I was at home with a few of my friends at 10:00 PM when I saw something like a searchlight a few miles away in the air. At first I was thinking somebody committed a serious crime and there was a helicopter but I took a closer look. I noticed the triangular craft moving erratically up and down and side to side and it emitted red sparks every 10 or so seconds. I got my friends and went outside. The craft traveled from one side to another for about 25 minutes and mysteriously shrunk to nothing and the beam faded. Please email back, this was like nothing I have ever seen in my life and will answer any more questions about this sighting formation."  The witness viewed the object through prismatic Optima Hurricane binoculars (7 X 50). He thought that the object would have been too dim to see with the naked eye, but that the size was about 8 inches from tip to tip (apparent size at arm's length).

Investigator's Notes:  This is another one of the several triangular shaped objects that have been reported.  Considering that the object emitted red sparks and reportedly disappeared it is not explainable.  Sometimes red sparks can be indicative of a hot air balloon, but the other characteristics observed do not fit a hot air balloon.  Given available information this sighting is unidentified.
