The Black Triangle UFO is one of the most famous unidentified flying objects seen by witnesses on Earth. The Belgian UFO wave and the Phoenix Lights are considered two of the most important sightings of Black Triangle UFOs.
There are countless images taken by NASA astronauts and NASA probes that depict mysterious objects in them. One such fascinating image was taken during the NASA Space Shuttle Program in 1986. Pictured here is a mysterious triangle shaped object floating between the space shuttle and our planet.
In 1986, during the STC-61-c, the seventh mission of Space Shuttle Columbia astronauts photographed Earth from orbit. But in addition to photographing our planet, their cameras from space captured something else.
But NASA argues this is not a UFO, and just a piece of THERMAL INSULATION TILE floating randomly in space.
Ufologists however disagree. Most people do not believe that the image taken by astronauts aboard the Columbia space shuttle shows a thermal insulation tile, but instead, the famous triangular-shaped UFO which has been seen by witnesses all across the globe.
The so-called Black Triangles have been categorized as a class of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, with certain common features which have reportedly been observed during the 20th and 21st centuries. Reports generally describe this class of UFOs as large, silent, black triangular objects hovering or slowly cruising at low altitudes over cities and highways.
One of the most famous Triangular shaped UFO sightings occurred in November of 1989 (Curiously the image taken by astronauts of the Black Triangle UFO occurred three years before that) when the so-called Belgian UFO wave began. During these incidents, two Belgian F-16’s attempted to intercept the objects (getting a successful missile lock at two occasions) only to be outmaneuvered.
Interestingly, the events of 29 November were documented by over thirty different groups of witnesses, and three separate groups of police officers. All of the reports related a large object flying at low altitude. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath.
Furthermore, the giant craft did not make a sound as it slowly moved across the landscape of Belgium.
In addition to the Belgian UFO wave, the Phoenix Lights are one of the best sightings where multiple unidentified objects, many of them black triangles, were spotted by the residents of Phoenix, Arizona and videotaped by both the local media and residents with camcorders across multiple evenings beginning on Thursday, March 13, 1997.
Interestingly, the image of the Black Triangle UFO was obtained from The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth a website operated by NASA at the Earth Sciences and Image Analysis department at Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. These are the people responsible for teaching astronauts in Earth observations and take care, catalog and ‘edit’ images that astronauts take in space (or used to).
“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.” – Paul Hellyer, Former Canadian Defense Minister (source)
Is it possible that these mysterious triangle-shaped UFOs are in fact vehicles of these ‘visitors’?
The image was only available for a short period of time on the following link:
Interestingly, there are many other images from NASA showing the same object in space.
Some of the images are available here: NASA Photos Database Records.
“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered . . . We are not alone in the universe; they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”—Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon. (source)(source)
Many people have drawn similarities between the mysterious triangle-shaped object snapped by Space Shuttle Astronauts in 86 and the Black Knight Satellite which has allegedly been orbiting our planet for over fifty years.
