Witnesses in the town of Amherst, Massachusetts observed a triangular UFO hovering silently over the community between 5:30 and 6:30 on the evening of January 8. The triangular formation of lights remained stationary or moved slowly, and was absolutely silent. At first, the FAA said there was no air activity in the area, but then the Air Force announced that a C5-A was in the region at the time. However, the UFO was silent and the C5-A, the largest aircraft in the world. creates a substantial amount of noise. The plane was not flying at an altitude too high for that noise to reach the ground, and winds in the area were light.
Therefore it's unlikely that the UFO and the running lights of the C5 are the same thing, and the object remains a possible unknown, another in the long list of triangle UFO sightings that have been taking place with increasing frequency for the past year.
