National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 4/13/2021 22:15 (Entered as : 04/13/21 22:15)
Reported: 4/17/2021 7:41:10 PM 19:41
Posted: 4/23/2021
Location: West Bridgewater, MA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular shaped craft with star field camouflage on underside which made no engine noise as it passed overhead.

At approximately 10:15 pm on Tuesday April 13 2021, a pair of faint pinpoint lights resembling satellites traveling in formation approached from the south. I have seen the ISS pass overhead before, when a craft had just recently undocked and was slowly moving away, and this was similar, in that the lights were traveling along adjacent parallel paths.

As the lights grew closer, I noticed that there was an area of distortion between the two small lights. A faint shimmer of light was projecting forward from each of the lights, angled toward a centerline between the two lights, but not reaching far enough forward to intersect each other.

The closer the lights came, the more confusing the distorted image between the lights became until the lights passed directly overhead. At that moment of closest approach, with the object directly overhead, the distortion seemed to resolve into a black triangular shape, with the lights appearing at the trailing points of the triangle.

As the craft passed between myself and the stars, it obscured the stars behind it, but there were starlike points of light that were present on the underside of the craft. They did not match up with the stars that were in the background but appeared as though it were a type of camouflage mimicking the starfield. The craft continued north and the distorted area quickly disappeared and the parallel lights faded into the distance shortly thereafter. The entire observation was only about 10 seconds.

If the craft was above the atmosphere, it was gigantic and moving very fast. If it was within the atmosphere, it produced no contrail and it was totally silent. No engine noise whatsoever.

I checked the NASA website and while there was a resupply and docking on 4/9/21, the orbital path of the ISS was not overhead on 4/13/21. Iíve lived under the flight paths and holding patterns of Logan airport for my entire life and Iíve never seen an aircraft like this before.
