This article contains spoilers for 'Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation' Season 2 Episode 2: 'The Triangle Mystery'

The Black Triangle UFO mystery has been a topic of debate for years and a search entry on the web dishes out comprehensive information and theories. Chris Mellon, National Security Affairs Advisor at To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science explores the fascinating history of these triangles. The earliest sighting dates back to the Hudson valley in 1986 where people have recorded events of seeing these humongous triangle-shaped objects hovering at a low altitude.

The mass sightings didn't end there and in 1990, JT who served as a Sgt First class US Navy was gazing at the sky when he was deployed for duty to the Saudi desert. It was a Superbowl Sunday when he saw a triangle with three orangish-white lights and there was no sound at all. This was seconded by Michael Via, Cryptologic Technician, US Navy who saw a similar object right after the end of the Gulf War. This time, there was a pausing sound with a low-frequency rumble and a pulse.

He termed it "a pristine equilateral black triangle." One of Mellon's theories was if the object was in fact F-117, a bomber or an SR-71. The episode then moves to a witness in Utah who asked to be anonymous but provided photographs of the object giving ample proof that was indeed a UFO ship. According to the witness, it appeared as if the object was actually searching for something or mapping the region. Bill Scott, a former Air Engineer said it correlated with some known programs.

David Marler, the author of 'Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation' was an absolute treasure trove who takes Mellon through the series of sightings he had made note of over the years. He recalls the scare police officers received when they saw the object at Illinois. The astounding theory was that they would map airbases that Mellon dubbed "alarming." However, renowned UFO expert David Clark likened much of this to a pop-culture phenomenon that easily influenced people.

The end theory was simple. It was either a top-secret US project known as the Blue Devil — a neutral rigid buoy airship that was developed as a surveillance craft and could fly at a low altitude. Perhaps the reason it was put on the air was to check for people's reactions. Of course, there is no major proof, but the extensive data that's collected over decades could mean this might just be a UFO after all.
