original source  |  fair use notice

Summary: At dusk in the evening of 29th November, 1989, two Sergeant-Majors of the Belgian Gendarmerie who were on patrol on the road from Eupen to Kittenis in the Hautes Fagnes region of Belgium, noticed a phenomenon two hundred meters away on one side of the road. It was moving slowly and was some three hundred meters above a field that bordered the road. This was the first sighting of the famous triangular craft and it was next seen in the famous case of 'The Wavre' in March 1990.


At dusk in the evening of 29th November, 1989, two Sergeant-Majors of the Belgian Gendarmerie who were on patrol on the road from Eupen to Kittenis in the Hautes Fagnes region of Belgium, noticed a phenomenon two hundred meters away on one side of the road. It was moving slowly and was some three hundred meters above a field that bordered the road.

Both police officers noted that it appeared to be a dark triangular platform with three powerful lights shining from its underside to the ground below. It had a central red light that oscillated from red to orange.

The object turned towards them and passed over their vehicle, illuminating the whole area and becoming more visible in its triangular format as it did so. It appeared to be almost completely noiseless, emitting only a very soft humming sound.

It proceeded slowly towards Eupen and stopped motionless above the dam at Gileppe for a period of 45 minutes. It finally moved in the direction of Baelen and Spa where it disappeared.

The two police officers contacted the Belgian Air Force base at Bierset which together with Glons and Butgenbach had detected scans on their radar. These bases at Aachen and Maastricht were notified and an AWAC aircraft was vectored to the area from Gelsenkirchen.

The whole incident was to last for 2.5 hours. It was witnessed by nineteen other Gendarmes who were guests at a nearby social event. Many witnesses from two areas of Liege, as well as Eupen, Plombieres, Kittenis, Baelin, Verviers, Jalhay, St Vith, Andrimont, Lontzen, Voeren, Battice and Herbesthal, reported this object to the Gendarmerie.

Descriptions from the witnesses all tallied, and conformed to the descriptions given of this phenomenon at the beginning of the sighting.

All radar reports were positive readings made by skilled operatives and could not be interpreted as readings from thermal inversions, unusual electromagnetic waves or signals from other radar.

Over 55 minutes later the same two police officers witnessed another triangular platform - only this time much larger - appear from almost ground level behind a large area of treas. It described a climbing turn - all the time slowly rotating in a level plane - following the course of a nearby main road, it seemed to be maintaining a relatively slow speed of about 64km/h.

This was the first sighting of the famous triangular craft and it was next seen in the famous case of 'The Wavre' in March 1990.
