National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 12/24/1986 22:00 (Entered as : 12/24/86 22:00)
Reported: 6/26/2002 10:14:06 AM 10:14
Posted: 7/1/2002
Location: Ocala, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: two minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Approximately 10:00 pm, saw a very large triangular (for lack of better word) shaped object traveling from southwest to northeast. The object appeared transparent, but had points of red lights on corners of object (maybe 8-10 lights). Not sure if they were blinking. The object was moving very slowly, emitting no sound whatsoever. We commented about the fact that we could see through the object. Nothing solid. Almost like a group of toothpicks put together with pin-points of red lights on each connection. The object may have been less than 1000' high. Hard to tell, but it was definitely not a formation of several objects higher in the sky. This was very low in the sky. I reported it to the Sheriff's department and they denied any other reports. In 2001, another man described having seen the same object that night, and described it the same way to us.
