(Examiner) An Oregon witness was startled while riding a scooter just after 10:00 p.m. on September 13, 2010, when a triangle-shaped craft with rounded edges was spotted just 100 yards away, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The object had a light in front that the witness said appeared to be guiding it somehow. "What made the light unique was that it was circular in shape and moving back and forth across the front of the craft," the witness stated. "It reminded me of the car 'Kit' from the television show 'Knight Rider' except for the fact the light was white and round.
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." As the craft moved closer, the witness offers a description. More>>
Mirage Men author Mark Pilkington discusses how the military used UFO stories to keep aircraft projects secret. Are UFOs a mirage, conjured up by the Air Force to obscure classified flight projects? In part, argues Mark Pilkington, a British journalist and filmmaker who writes about society's oddities.

These ideas do generate themselves to some extent, but there is evidence that they were specifically shaped in some instances. More>>
