According to the witness, in a report filed in the MUFON archives as Case 75839 on April 15, 2016, he was working in his yard while his four children rode their bicycles when he stopped the work he was doing to watch them play.
"My four kids were riding their bicycles," the witness said. "One of my daughters, age 7, rode her bike up to me."
The 7-year-old stopped her bike suddenly, pointed up in the sky, and asked, "What is that?"
The witness was facing north at the time, but his daughter had pointed westward. He looked up westward and saw a black speck in the sky flying just below the clouds eastward.
"It's a helicopter," he told his daughter and resumed his work.
But his daughter yelled, "It is a flying car!"
He looked up again but could not see the object. So he asked his daughter to show him by pointing. She pointed in the direction of the flying object.
He saw the flying object moving closer. This time, he could see it was not a helicopter but a triangular flying object with rounded edges and black color.
Each rounded edge of the triangle, according to the witness, had a white light. In the middle of the triangle was a circular vent that could have been a thruster.
The UFO traveled in a straight line silently, rotating slowly as it moved along.
"There was a light at each corner, with what looked like a thruster in the center. It was traveling... and didn't make a sound."
The witness told his daughter to continue tracking the object with her eyes while he ran to his truck to fetch his binoculars.
The witness could see, as he watched the UFO through his binoculars, that it was not any man-made flying object he had ever seen, including a drone. He also noticed that it had no markings, numbers, or letters on it.
He watched through his binoculars as it changed direction and flew eastward, still rotating. Then it changed direction again and flew westward.
It hovered for some seconds just below the clouds, rotating slowly at first. Then it began spinning faster until it looked like a flying saucer. Then it took off suddenly and flew straight up into the clouds and disappeared.
"It started to look more like a saucer, as it was spinning. And then, there was like a flash, and the object shot straight up into the clouds!"
The shocked witness described his experience as "dreamlike."
"I would say that it had to be approximately 8 feet high and 40 to 50 feet wide," he said. "And maybe even the size of a two or three-bedroom home. My daughter and I saw this object for approximately two minutes."
He created a model of the UFO out of Styrofoam to show exactly what he saw.
The sighting was investigated by John A. Gagnon, MUFON's chief investigator in Florida, assisted by Field Investigator Diane Law.
Gagnon acknowledged there have been several triangle UFO sightings in the Space Coast area of Florida over the years, and that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of the sightings lately.
