Date of Sighting: August 12, 2010
Time of Sighting: 11 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Berlin Township, Michigan (See Map)

Description: On August 12, 2010 my sister (a 20-year-old 3rd year university student), her boyfriend (a 22-year-old security guard), and I (a 26-year-old elementary school teacher with a master's degree) planned to watch the meteor showers at my house in Berlin Township, Michigan. At about 10:30, we all laid on the deck and were enjoying the clear skies, stars, and a few meteors.

Shortly after 11, my sister’s boyfriend pointed out a very bright glow (appeared golf ball sized) to the east. We all sat up to look, at first thinking it was a meteor. The light appeared to be getting closer. After 30 seconds or so, we knew it wasn't a meteor because we could see the light was coming from some type of aircraft. It appeared to be a headlight—the beam went out into the night sky like a flashlight. It was NOT a spotlight. It did not shine down. The craft continued to move forward. It was moving west. On one side of the craft was a small blue light and on the other side a small red light (similar to airplanes). As the craft moved overhead we could see it was triangular shaped and was close. It not so close where we’d be alarmed, but closer than airplanes normally fly. We watched as the craft very quietly moved west , dipped and glided toward the north, dipped down and up a few more times, and was finally out of view.

We were all stunned at what we saw and returned to the deck to continue watching for meteors. Less than 5 minutes later from the same point in the sky, the bright yellow circular glow appeared again. We witnessed the same thing again with the same (if not very similar) flight pattern. This time we all heard what we describe as a “whirring” noise. After this one was out of view we began to walk from the front yard to the back yard again when we immediately saw another one of the exact same appearance. This led us to believe there were minimally 2 separate crafts since our 2nd sighting had vanished only seconds earlier.

My sister’s boyfriend left at 11:40 p.m. My sister and I drove south down Dixie Highway for about 5 minutes in an attempt to find better views. As we turned around and headed back, we had our 4th sighting.

My sister’s boyfriend called shortly after midnight (8/13/10) to say he was outside of his home in Trenton, Michigan and was witnessing the same yellow glow. However, this time the glow hovered at a farther distance for several minutes. It did not move overhead to reveal the triangular shaped aircraft, but instead simply hovered.

My sister and I stayed outside until approximately 2:00 a.m. (8/13/10) and saw a few more meteors, but did not have another sighting of the aircraft. We emailed our local channel 4 news to see if anyone else reported a sighting or if there was an possibility of some type of military practice. We haven’t heard anything back and have not found any other reports online.

Note: I don't think that the witnesses misidentified conventional aircraft. Regular aircraft can appear triangular shaped when they are overhead, but the whirring noise, lack of "jet rumble" and blue light suggest that the craft were not regular aircraft.
