Two Utah witnesses in separate reports describe a triangle-shaped UFO moving silently overhead in the early morning hours of May 26, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The first witness was outside at 12:13 a.m. when a triangle object came into view.
"As I was watching a few satellites traveling in their normal pathways, a triangular object with a light in each corner caught my eye traveling at high speed (no sound) from west to east," the witness stated. "Its line of travel was in a straight line for about 4 seconds and it suddenly shifted to the south on a 20 degree angle very quickly, as though it was making a course adjustment or such. It made another shift to the south a moment later and continued very quickly to disappear from sight to the east over the Wasatch Mountains."

. Before artificial satellites were used to find storms, the military units flew routine weather reconnaissance tracks to detect formation of tropical cyclones. Although satellite data has revolutionized weather forecasters' ability to detect early signs of tropical cyclones before they form, there are still many important tasks they are not suited for. Satellites cannot determine the interior barometric pressure of a hurricane, nor provide accurate wind speed information.
A father-of-three from Huddersfield has captured images of earth from space using a weather balloon.
Starting in October 2008, 38-year-old Robert Harrison filled 12 High Altitude Balloons with helium and launched them 35 kilometres into the atmosphere.
[. ]Having wrapped a digital camera and Global Positioning System device in loft insulation and linked it to computer software on the ground, he was able to track the balloons' progress.
[. ]He said: "The first time I saw the pictures, I couldn't believe it."
[. ]The rare images caught the attention of experts in the field and it wasn't long before Harrison received a telephone call from NASA.
[. ]In total, the project cost Harrison £4000 [I think this is a mistake for £400 - rerev] and he believes the achievement was worth every penny.

Washington on Tuesday insisted it would continue spy flights over the Taiwan Strait after Chinese jets reportedly chased a US reconnaissance plane into Taiwanese airspace.
A $150million U.S. Army airship crash landed in woods today after it could only reach half of its expected altitude on a test flight.
The unmanned solar-powered airship was only in the air for less than three hours after it launched in Akron, Ohio, on Wednesday morning.
It ascended as planned up to 32,000ft but the Lockheed Martin airship then encountered problems and was not able to get up to 60,000ft.
