Triangle Close Encounter in Wakefield, Rhode Island
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:04 AM 3/25/2014

Wakefield, Rhode Island - 04-11-08

As I was coming home from a night class at the Univ. of Rhode Island, early April, 2008, about 9 pm, up ahead at the intersection of Ministerial road (rt. 110) and Old Post Rd, in the Perryville section of South Kingstown, RI. I saw a large (maybe 15 ft. across), round, off-white light hovering above a telephone pole (power transformer attached to pole).

My immediate thought was 'that's not supposed to be there.' I slowed down as I approached the intersection from the NW (Post Rd North) and stopped at the four-way stop sign, keeping my eyes on the light.

There were no other cars on the road at that time. The night was clear with stars and cool. I was fixated on the light as I crossed the intersection and stopped my car below the large light, trying to make out the shape of the craft, which I thought was either triangle or chevron shaped.

It was a dense, dark object with only the lights prominent. There was no noise whatsoever as the craft just floated perfectly still above the pole. I then noticed a small 'electric green' flashing light, like a neon light, and a beautiful green color, at what I would call the rear of the craft.

I estimated that the craft was about 30 ft. to 50 ft. in length. There were two homes on either side of the road where I stopped (noticed no one inside) and an automotive garage (Scott's automotive) which is usually open nights 'till 11pm, next to the house across from the pole.

I got out of my car, keeping my door open in case I needed to beat a hasty retreat for any reason, while I observed in fascination this craft.

At that moment a car came out from a small dirt road/driveway next to Scott's Automotive and I thought it would stop... instead, it accelerated past me and blew through the stop sign heading North on Old Post Rd... the driver must have seen the craft I was looking at and in fear sped away.

I was alone again at that point, and as I watched the craft in slowly and ever-so smoothly pivoted, rose up a bit, and slowly drifted off across Ministerial Rd, heading NW, over a hill and toward the town of Wakefield.

At that point I had this strange sensation that time was slowing down, even as I got back in my car to head home nearby. I called the South Kingstown police to report this incident as I drove.

The female dispatcher took my call seriously and said no other calls had come in related to it at that point.

As I drove away from the spot the feeling of slow time seemed to go away. I was too fascinated to be scared of what I saw but never felt threatened by the craft at all... just felt lucky to have such a fascinating observation.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer of MUFON Rhode Island.
