Footage surfaces of ‘triangular UFO’ over US military base — RT World News
American podcast hosts Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp obtained video clips and a still image purporting to show a huge unidentified flying object (UFO) that flew over a California military base in April 2021 before quickly disappearing from view by 50 Marines who allegedly witnessed the incident.
The object was black and triangular and had five red lights along its edges, according to Tuesday’s episode of the “Weaponized” podcast. It hovered for about 10 minutes over Camp Wilson, the largest US Marine Corps training base in the world, then disappeared without a trace after troops began firing flares in the sky to illuminate the suspected craft.
The marines were “baffled” by the UFO, which “appeared out of nowhere” one of the witnesses told Corbell. “With the photo I took with a black triangular shape under the lights, it’s definitely not any type of flare or lighting rounds,” he added.
Witnesses put the size of the UFO at about the wingspan of a stealth bomber, or half the length of a football field. Marines said shortly after the object disappeared, dozens of military trucks and helicopters rushed to the area. Helicopters circled the mountainous desert area around the base for several hours after the sighting. Camp Wilson is located about 150 miles east of Los Angeles, near Twentynine Palms, California.
One of the witnesses speculated that the government was looking for the UFO after it disappeared. “I’m just trying to figure out what it was,” he said to Corbell. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” He added that after the illumination shells rose above the UFO, “he just disappeared, like everything was black, and then helicopters started firing a** at him.”
Corbell told Britain’s Daily Mail that the incident had not been reported to the US government’s UFO investigation office. “If the public wants to know more about this UAP (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena) encounter, we will have to encourage our representatives to ask questions and push for answers.”
US government agencies have recorded an increase in UFO sightings between 2021 and 2022, the Pentagon said in January in its annual UAP report. The US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) compiled reports of 144 such sightings over a 17-year period ending in March 2021. In the following 17 months alone, 366 new incidents were reported, more than double the total 17 years.
