An Arizona witness reports a triangle-shaped object with “three green, glowing orbs” moving north in a “straight, slow and steady formation” over Tortolita Mountain, according to September 28, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“The glow from the lights was about twice as bright as a star and green,” the witness stated. “I have never seen a star that looks this kind of white-ish green before. I was shocked when I noticed it wasn’t anything that I was familiar with because there were a couple of sighting of UFOs a week or so before in the Tucson area, so I pulled over to check it out.”
The witness took a photograph – see Image # 1.
The object disappeared.
“I’m pretty sure I lost sight of it because it went behind the mountain, but it just seemed to disappear.”

AZ, September 27, 2011 – Triangle Shaped UFO Over Tortolita Mountain Formed by Three Green Glowing Orbs. MUFON Case # 32146.
I was driving east on Tangerine when I looked to the left and saw three glowing green lights above the mountain.
At first I thought they were planes but they were glowing too brightly. They were moving slowly to the north and then disappeared from view behind the mountain. The glow from the lights was about twice as bright as a star and green. I have never seen a star that looks this kind of white-ish green before. I was shocked when I noticed it wasn’t anything that i was familiar with because there were a couple of sighting of UFOs a week or so before in the Tucson area, so I pulled over to check it out.
I managed to get a picture of it before it disappeared. It moved in a very straight, slow, and steady formation. I’m pretty sure I lost sight of it because it went behind the mountain, but it just seemed to disappear.
