- SAN FRANCISCO - On
the evening of Super Bowl Sunday, January 30, 2000, I was hauling up a
line of crab traps off Faralon Island aboard our 25' boat. My dog started
to bark furiously. I looked up and saw a huge triangular object hovering
above with NO sound.
- I was hit by a beam of white light and fell backward.
I grabbed my Ruger 10-22 rifle loaded with a 100 round banana magazine
and stared firing as fast as I could until the clip was empty. I was able
to shoot out the light.
- While grabbing for a second clip, I saw a hatch open
up on the bottom side of the object and two people leaned down to yell,
"STOP SHOOTING AT US YOU IDIOT."
- The only other noise I heard was a hissing sound like
air escaping from a flat tire. As the object moved off to the south, I
saw a helicopter come out off the top and move in next to my boat about
20 feet off the water and only feet away. Someone in the side door held
up a camera and the flash shot off a picture of me in the boat holding
- The helicopter made no noise and had no markings on
it. It was solid flat black as was the huge Triangle. The chopper then
took off toward the Golden Gate Bridge climbing up.
- The Triangle slowing gained altitude and was last seen
heading south. At first I thought it was an alien UFO and was genuinely
startled by it. However, I now believe it was an experimental military
platform for transporting a small fleet of black helicopters that leave
and enter out of the top of a huge silent floating triangle the size of
a football field. A rigid airship if you will.
- (NUFORC noted: This may be the first report we have received
that has the occupants of such a craft using a camera with a flash attachment.)
