MUFON Case # 25398
Date/Time: 2010-09-10 22:00 GMT
Distance: 500 feet or less
Summary: Bright triangular shaped object sighted on far east side of Bend, Oregon.
Three of us were returning from a high school football game in a SUV traveling north on 17th street on the east side of Bend, Oregon. It was 10 pm when we noticed lights to the north, off in the distance, perhaps several miles away. It was a clear night and no moon light.
As we discussed the incident later, all of us at first just assumed it was an aircraft at first. However the object then went from what seemed like a stationary point several miles off and at a high rate of speed, perhaps 1500 mph, as though it was shot from a gun, it came directly towards us and stopped a short ways off, maybe 1000 feet away. It stopped instantly; there did not appear to be any acceleration or deceleration -it just went full speed and stopped on a dime.
Then the object in a similar manner shot off in easterly direction and stopped again then it came back again and hovered perhaps 500 feet away and not more than 500 in elevation. Then the object moved very slowly getting closer to us. We could see very clearly the object was triangular in shape perhaps the same mass as a medium sized motor home, not really very large. Underneath the object were perhaps 15 symmetrically placed bright white lights that formed the shape of a triangle with lights inside the triangular shape as well. I would estimate the diameter of the lights at 5" and they were definitely round in shape, the bottom side protruded down sort of like spot light in shape. All the lights were on and extremely bright, not flashing or pulsing or fading.
The object was approximately 1/3 longer than the width of what appeared to be the rear of the object. On the sides were red lights that appeared to at times be on wings or perhaps the upper sides of the craft. One of the witnesses with me said he saw blue lights, which I did not see. When the craft was slowly hovering a short distance away it seemed that part of the craft, the part illuminated with the red lights, rotated or shifted some how in a very bizarre manner, as though they meshed, passed through each other and traded sides on the craft which gave the impression it was flip flopping around, although the triangular shaped lights on the bottom remained constant and did not change or fluctuate in their positions.
These events all unfolded in about 90 seconds, then again the craft shot off, like shot from a gun. It went from a hovering position to full speed instantaneously which was at a very high rate of speed in a westerly direct and in just an instant out of sight. All of these maneuvers did not generate any noise, the craft was absolutely quiet and did not stir up any dust on the ground. We did not see it again, it was gone.
All of us were shocked and nervously laughed about what we just seen. Not one of had ever seen anything like it before. We started to try to explain what we saw. We eliminated helicopters because it would have been noisy and would stirred up a bunch of dust. A helicopter could never perform those types of maneuvers, we eliminated airplanes for similar reasons. The only conclusion we could draw was that the object was a UFO.
Perhaps this was a once in a life time event for the three of us, but we all agree, we hope to see it again. It was very interesting and fascinating. In retrospect not one of us was fearful or frightened, only curious. I spent a good portion of the next evening looking into the night sky hoping to see it again. We all agreed we would never look up to the night sky in the same way after seeing our first UFO.
MUFON Case # 25400
Date/Time: 2010-09-12 20:20 GMT
City: Grants Pass
Summary: Bright luminescent object, pale yellow and circular.
I was sitting outside with dog having a cigar when I heard what sounded like a Native American chant echoing from a darkened field. This object came over the trees at about the altitude of an airplane fromt he direction of the chanting. The object was a bright, yet dulled pale yellow. It was about the size of Jupiter and Venus joined together on their brightest luminescence. It flew from the west to the southeast. After the object went over the far horizon the chanting ceased within minutes. I don't know if the two are related but they seemed to coincide with each other and each seemed to stop with each other. I tried to check the field where I heard the chanting from and it was dark and empty. I also got the sense of presence from the object and along with the chanting seemed to cast a strong presence of unease.
MUFON Case # 25420
Date/Time: 2010-09-13 22:15 GMT
Distance: 100 yards (+/-)
Summary: UFO flew from north to south
I had left from work at about 10:00pm and was beginning my hour long ride home on my scooter. Shortly after leaving (around 10:10), I was driving west on marine drive nearing the 223rd st exit. As I approached the off-ramp, I noticed a unique light in the northern sky, and it was heading in my direction. What made the light unique was that it was circular in shape and moving back and forth across the front of the craft. It reminded me of the car "kit" from the television show 'Knight Rider' except for the fact the light was white and round.
As it drew near (roughly 100 yards away), I could see the underneath of the craft. It seemed to have a triangular shape but rounded (basically there seemed to be no straight lines). The craft was also a silver color and absolutely had no visible means of propulsion. I didn't see any propellers or jet engines.
Now the most incredible part of this experience was that the light seemed to help determine the direction the craft would head. The light stopped pacing back and forth and was stuck on one end for about 20 seconds. The craft started heading in the direction the light was facing, and soon the craft stopped and tilted forward as if the lights were this crafts eyes.
I immediately realized what I was witnessing was something out of the ordinary and caused me to lose control of my scooter for a brief moment. While this happened the crafts light shot directly in my direction and then the craft slowly turned in my direction. By then I was so scared I focused on my driving, trying to figure out what to do and where to go, being that I was in an area with little traffic and little to none lighting.
About 30-45 seconds passed without looking at this craft,(while heading south on 223rd), but once I turned my head assuming it'd be above me by then, it was gone. When i noticed the craft gone, I was coming to a light (possibly Sandy Blvd.) I will gladly provide further info if needed. Thank you
