Witness cell phone image was enlarged
Six Kansas witnesses near a neighborhood pond first joked about lights in the sky circling around them, but were shocked by the craft's second appearance at close range as they made out "the distinct outline of a very thin triangular shaped black object," according to witness testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

One of the friends called out to the others to point out a lit object in the distant darkness. They joked about it being a UFO, one snapped a cell phone image of it, and when it disappeared from view they wrote it off as a blimp.

But the object came back about two minutes later - this time brighter and at close range.

The object was hanging just above the tree line behind them and was described as "the size of a small house." The object hovered, they said, and slowly moved directly overhead.

"At this point we could see the distinct outline of a very thin triangular shaped black object. Numerous lights lit up the underneath and a slight hum could be heard, but nothing like an airplane or a jet engine. My friends and I just watched it pass and as we were all in shock, nobody could get out their phone for a closer picture."

After slowly passing overhead, the object increased speed and moved away - disappearing in "the blink of an eye."

The following is the original unedited witness testimony from MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Kansas MUFON investigates and reports back on any of these cases, I will update this page.

KS, August 21, 2009 - Triangular shaped thin black object (about the size of a small house) with numerous lights underneath passed directly over my friends and I just above treetop height. MUFON Case # 18813.

My friends and I (6 of us total) were visiting the neighborhood pond when one of us called out to point out a lighted object far off in the dark sky. We watched the object circle around and one of my friends and i had jokingly called out, "Haha look it's a UFO!" Two of the guys with us decided it looked like a blimp judging on the lights positioning.

I snapped a pic of the aircraft on my cell phone while it was still visible.

The object had flown just out of sight behind some trees. We all were stunned at the thought of what that could have been. Finally everyone agreed that it had to have been a blimp.

Approx. 2 min later the lights from before were much brighter now and behind us. We all turned around to see the object from before up close and right in front of us but just above the tree line. The aircraft, about the size of a small house, hovered while continuing to move right above our heads.

At this point we could see the distinct outline of a very thin triangular shaped black object. Numerous lights lit up the underneath and a slight hum could be heard, but nothing like an airplane or a jet engine. My friends and I just watched it pass and as we were all in shock, nobody could get out their phone for a closer picture.

Just after passing us and the small pond, the triangular aircraft increased speed and took off. The object disappeared within the blink of an eye. I was in complete shock as I had never seen anything like this before in my life.
