MSNBC WEBSITE tells of An ALIEN SPACE CRAFT MAKING THE NEWS. Triangles have been seen by ground observers creeping through the sky
low and slow near cities, and quietly cruising over highways

The National Institute for Discovery Science, or NIDS, has cataloged the
Triangle sightings, sifting through and combining databases to take a
hard look at the mystery craft. Based in Las Vegas, NIDS is a privately
funded science institute with a strong research focusing on aerial
phenomena. The results of their study have just been released, and lead
to some unnerving, puzzling conclusions. 

The study points out: “The United States is currently experiencing a
wave of Flying Triangle sightings that may have intensified in the
1990s, especially towards the latter part of the 1990s. The wave
continues. The Flying Triangles are being openly deployed over and near
population centers, including in the vicinity of major interstate

Covert operations? A key NIDS conclusion is that the actions of these
triangular craft do not conform to previous patterns of covert
deployment of unacknowledged aircraft. Furthermore, neither the
agenda nor the origin of the Flying Triangles are currently known. 

The years 1990-2004 have seen an intense wave of Flying Triangle
aircraft, the study observes. Sifting through reports by hundreds of
eyewitnesses, the NIDS assessment states that the behavior of the
vehicles does not appear consistent with the covert deployment of an
advanced DoD [U.S. Department of the Defense] aircraft. 

Rather, it is consistent with (a) the routine and open deployment of an
unacknowledged advanced Defense Department aircraft or (b) the routine
and open deployment of an aircraft owned and operated by personnel
outside the Defense Department, suggests the NIDS study. 

The implications of the latter possibility are disturbing, especially
during the post-9/11 era when the United States airspace is extremely
heavily guarded and monitored, the NIDS study explains. In support
of option (a), there is much greater need for surveillance in the United
States in the post-9/11 era, and it is certainly conceivable that
deployment of low-altitude surveillance platforms is routine and

˜Open, even brazen” According to Colm Kelleher, NIDS
administrator, the newly completed quasi- meta-analysis of Flying
Triangles melds three major databases, from NIDS, the Mutual UFO Network
and independent researcher Larry Hatch, the creator and owner of one of
the world’s largest and most comprehensive UFO databases. 

Kelleher said the analysis indicates that deployment of Flying Triangles
is open, not covert, and involves low-flying, brightly lit aircraft
routinely deployed over populated areas including cities and interstate

However, I cannot say whether these are U.S. Air Force aircraft. We
simply don’t know, Kelleher told Space.com. But it does not appear
to be consistent with the covert patterns of deployment we saw with the
F-117 and B-2 prior to their acknowledgement. This is open, even
brazen. IF USA has these vehicles what would they use them for?
Blaming an invasion on aliens?. Werner Von Braun worked for
the military for decades and told his second in command that they
would do this. SEE: TAKEOVER of WEST COAST.

Scary but possible. Take a look at the how past military stealth
aircraft programs were kept from the public eye although they
eventually came to light tho THAT is different from the patterns for the
Flying Triangles. 

Prior to acknowledgement of the F-117 and B-2 aircraft, only rare
nighttime sightings occurred in the sparsely populated sections of
Nevada, California and a few other states. Flying at low altitude over
populated areas was rarely reported for the F-117 or B-2. 

In contrast, the Flying Triangle deployment, especially during the
1990s, appears more consistent with the open and public operation of
these aircraft, the study explains. The trend of open deployment of
the Flying Triangles is not consistent with secret operation of an
advanced military aircraft. 

No attempt to hide The database-driven study of the Flying Triangle
shows the following patterns: 

Sightings take place near cities and on Interstate highways. They are
seen at low altitude in plain sight of eyewitnesses. They fly at
extremely low speed or hover in plain sight of eyewitnesses. The
vehicles sometime fly with easily noticeable bright lights  either
blinding white lights, or bright disco lights that usually flash
combinations of red, green or blue. 

The NIDS study emphasizes that the flying of these vehicles may be more
in harmony with an attempt to display or to be noticed. There appears to
be little or no attempt to hide. That finding has led to a modification
of an earlier NIDS hypothesis that the Triangles are covertly deployed
Defense Department aircraft. 

While it is too early to dismiss the previously published NIDS
correlation between Triangle sightings and a subset of U.S. Air Force
bases, the apparent association with centers of population may point
away from a covert program. Rather, it is consistent with routine and
open deployment of an advanced aircraft, the NIDS study concludes. 

Clustered on both coasts During the ensuing years (2000-2004), NIDS
received hundreds of reports from people in the United States and Canada
reporting large triangular aircraft, often silent and often flying at
very low altitude and at low air speed. In many cases, the objects were
brightly lit. NIDS files also include reports of Flying Triangles from
remote areas. 

In mid-2004, NIDS reviewed its database that contains the locations of
the Triangle sightings in the United States. The sightings of Triangles
appear primarily adjacent to population centers and along interstate
highways, with sightings clustered on both coasts. 

NIDS has amassed almost 400 separate sightings of
triangular/boomerang/wedge-shaped objects. Many of these craft are
brightly lit, low-flying, and traveling at unexpectedly low air speeds. 

In earlier reports, NIDS outlined a tentative correlation between
reported sightings of Triangles and the locations of Air Mobility
Command and Air Force Materiel Command bases in the United States. 

Like a ˜Star Trek uncloaking According to ground observers, the
features of a Black Triangle are indeed impressive. 

For example, the NIDS study includes the observation of a person in Port
Washington, Wis., who encountered a large object that flew over her home
at an estimated altitude of 500 feet (150 meters) in October 1998. Her
eyeing of the clear starry night was interrupted as the craft came into
her field of view. 

Suddenly this monstrosity came out of the blue,just like a
Star Trek ‘uncloaking’, no kidding ... so quiet I couldn’t  believe it
and so huge ... no more than 500 feet or so up, and big enough to take
up my field of sky vision,  she reported. 

Crude mathematics, the witness recounted, would make the vessel about
200 feet wide and 250 feet long (60 by 75 meters). 

In wrapping up its look at the burgeoning number of Flying Triangle
sightings in the United States, NIDS also took into account the work of
writers and researchers delving into the topic both in the United States
and abroad. 

Those analyses fall into two camps: One says the Triangles are
human-made, while the other says they are not. 

In 2004 it is extremely difficult to distinguish between these two
possibilities, since the former option overlaps heavily with legitimate
national security concerns, while in the absence of much more physical
evidence, the latter option is not testable, the NIDS assessment
