Here is an eyewitness account of a sighting event that occurred in Milton, New Hampshire, on August 13, 2010:
The state of New Hampshire is the location of two of Ufology's most enduring mysteries. One of these is the Hill Abduction in 1961, and also the Exeter Encounters in 1965. Another very compelling case from the state is the reported UFO Landing in 2008.
On Aug 12, 2010, I went out about 2:30 am to watch the Perseids meteor shower. I was by Milton 3 Ponds in Milton, New Hampshire. I was looking at the bottom right star in the Little Dipper, when I saw an extremely bright flash.
At first I thought I saw a star burn out; when my eyes adjusted I noticed that the star was still there, but now it was moving from left to right.
At first I thought it was just a satellite or maybe the space station, but just then it stopped. It stayed stationary for about 5-6 seconds and then it started moving again, but in a different direction. It now was heading toward the lake. It made a large arc out and around the lake and right back to the place where I first spotted it.
The next night Aug 13, 2010, my neighbor that I told what I had seen the night before asked me if I would go back to the lake and take him this time, and I did. We had only been there about 10 minutes when the same object appeared again roughly in the same spot I had seen it the night before.
About 5-6 minutes later my friend pointed out a really bright light in the western sky just above the tree line; we watched this bright light for a good half an hour. During this time we saw it change from red to green to blue and also white.
This light also would appear to just blink out completely for 3-4 seconds and then appear again, but several feet in the sky to its left and our right. It also looked like it was moving up and down, left and right, and even at times in small circles.
We had no clue what we were looking at and jokingly I said to my friend, "what would you do if it disappeared and all of a sudden it was right above us?"
As I finished saying that I kind of jumped and said "my God, that just scared the heck out of me."
My friend quickly looked in my direction and said, "what?" and I replied, "oh, that plane is coming across the lake with its landing lights on."
We kind of laughed, but kept watching the plane. As it got closer it started looking more and more not like a plane. My friend asked me if there was an airport nearby, and I told him there was not. The object kept getting closer and closer, but we still could hear no engine noise.
Description of the UFO
The two got a much better look at the object as it drew near. They could see two, large flood lights, but no FAA required lighting. The object had no wings. Finally, the UFO came right over them, partially obscured by clouds, but a low rumbling could be heard.
As the object moved into the clouds, the two flood lights lit up. The object looked like a triangle, but had a pyramid shape to it. They could clearly see a row of windows which were illuminated from the crafts interior. The object was moving at about 50 mph as it appeared to descend over some trees into a swamp area.
The area was almost inaccessible due to heavy foliage and swamp areas, so the two did not attempt to search out a possible landing site.
One of the witnesses is a Navy veteran who is well versed in identifying aircraft, but this object was unlike anything he had seen during his career in the military.
