Graham Woodward, a retired British BT engineer in Swindon, was driving home with his 18-year-old son, Stefan, at about 8:19 p.m. on Sunday, September 25, when they saw mysterious “brilliantly white lights” in the sky.
According to Woodward, 62, of Nelson Street in Swindon, he was driving along Royal Wootton Bassett Road near Kingshill roundabout, when he noticed in the sky (see video below) three bright lights arranged in a triangle shape and an unblinking red light in the center.
The lights hovered in the air over Westcott Place before accelerating and flying out of sight, Woodward told the local newspaper, the Swindon Advertiser.
The sighting has sparked speculation, with many black project conspiracy theorists insisting that it was yet another confirmed sighting of a mysterious black triangle UFO. Black triangle UFOs are believed to be a new generation of stealth aircraft being developed secretly by the U.S. through reverse-engineering of alien UFO crafts recovered from multiple crash sites since the famous Roswell incident in July, 1947.
Woodward was convinced that the craft was neither a drone nor a military or commercial aircraft because it had no blinking navigation lights and flew silently without an audible engine sound.
He said he slowed down his car and wound down the window to listen to the noise of an engine, but he heard nothing.
“It was as large as a light aircraft and the three bright lights were on the points of a three sided black or very dark triangle.” he told the Swindon Advertiser.
“It certainly was unlike any flying object that I have ever witnessed before.”

The aircraft hovered in the air for about three minutes, keeping pace with the witnesses’ car from Wootton Bassett Road to Westcott Place, before turning left sharply, and flying off at tremendous speed.
Woodward was unable to capture a video of the mysterious hovering craft because the sighting was unexpected and brief. But he was convinced that other drivers following his car also saw it.
He was so perplexed by the sighting that he called police on his phone to report the incident.
“I rang the police and was told that possibly it could have been one of these drones that are popular these days with hobbyists,” he said.
But he was adamant that he had not seen a drone.
“I stressed to them that I don’t wish to appear as being some sort of crank as I am an engineer by profession and am quite logical,” he said. “I am certainly able to recognize any type of aircraft, but the object certainly was unlike any flying object that I have ever witnessed before.”
Swindon Advertiser reports that dozens of other residents of Swindon and nearby towns also reported sighting the lights on Sunday.
A resident of Old Walcot called to corroborate Graham’s report.
“He (Woodward) is not a crank. Me and my wife saw it too,” he said. “We saw those three lights in the sky about 8.20 pm coming back from West Swindon near Kingshill Road. It was definitely three bright white lights and it didn’t look like an aircraft.”
Footage of the alleged mysterious flying craft surfaced eventually. The footage (see above), taken by a witness identified as Richard Newton, shows “strange lights” over Liden at about the time that Woodward sighted “brilliantly white lights” hovering over Swindon.
Newton, like Woodward, was adamant that the mysterious craft was not a drone.
But after viewing Newton’s video, Graham noted slight but significant differences between the mysterious craft that he saw and the craft shown in the footage. He pointed out that although the three bright lights in the video were similar, the red light of the craft he saw was not flashing.
Skeptics who saw Newton’s video attempted to debunk claims that it shows a mysterious UFO. According to some skeptics the video actually shows a C-17 Globemaster approaching the RAF airfield at Brize Norton.
“My boyfriend is in love with planes and he said it’s a c17 as it has a red flashing light.”
“I can confirm from radar data that it was an RAF c17 at 8:20pm on Sunday night.”
But Woodward insisted that he was familiar with the appearance of the Globemaster. He insisted that what he saw on Sunday night was not a Boeing C-17 Globemaster aircraft.
Believers who defended Woodward also noted that Globemasters do not stop to hover in the air for minutes before making a sharp turn and accelerating rapidly out of sight. The also do not fly without audible engine sound.
While residents speculated and debated the nature of the sighting, online UFO enthusiasts seized upon the details of Woodward’s testimony to declare the incident as yet another confirmed sighting of a mysterious black triangle UFO.
Black triangle UFOs are believed in black project conspiracy theory circles to be a new generation of advanced stealth reconnaissance military aircraft being developed by the U.S. and its closest allies, such as the U.K.
The new generation of stealth military crafts were allegedly developed from reverse-engineering of alien UFO spacecraft recovered from multiple crash sites, such as the 1947 UFO crash site in Roswell, New Mexico.
Woodward’s description of the mysterious craft over Swindon is eerily similar to typical witness accounts of alleged Pentagon black project triangle crafts
Nearly all witnesses report watching the black triangle UFO hovering over a spot for minutes before turning sharply and accelerating from rest at a tremendous speed and disappearing from sight within seconds.
Black project conspiracy theorists believe that recent witness reports indicate that the U.S. and its allies may have reached the final stages of a decades-long program to developed nuclear-powered stealth crafts capable of hovering and accelerating from rest at incredible rates like alien UFOs.
According to conspiracy theorists, Pentagon appears to be conducting late-stage flight tests of advanced crafts that reportedly include prototype models, such as the TR-3A Black Manta, the TR-3B Aurora, and its advanced version, the Astra (more details here).
The Inquisitr reported in July that a witness in Charlottesville, Albemarle County, Virginia, reported sighting a triangle UFO hovering over U.S. Route 29 north, near Kroger and K-Mart stores, at about 8:55 UTC on Sunday, July 24. The triangle UFO hovered for about three minutes before turning northeast and flying off at great speed (see video below).
A nearly identical sighting occurred over Maine in July (see video and images below).
In May, a witness in Illinois reported sighting a triangle UFO with bright lights hovering in the air at a height of about 200 feet while driving along Wilmot Road in Spring Grove.
Contributing to the debate over the latest mysterious UFO sighting incident, UFO blogger Scott C. Waring noted on his UFO Sightings Daily blog that the U.S. government was probably conducting tests of its new advanced black project aircraft in the airspace of its close ally, Britain.
