The 21 Types of UFOs

Unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, have captivated the imaginations of people around the world for decades. While there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that UFOs are alien spacecraft, people continue to report seeing a wide variety of objects and phenomena in the sky that they believe are UFOs. Here are 21 of the most common shapes that have been reported:

#1 – Shape-shifting Types of UFOs

One of the most mysterious types of UFOs are those that are reported to change shape or appearance while they are being observed. Some people believe that these objects may be using advanced shape-shifting technology that allows them to transform into different forms.

One possibility is that these objects are alien spacecraft that are equipped with sophisticated camouflage systems that allow them to blend in with their surroundings. This technology could potentially allow the spacecraft to take on the appearance of clouds, stars, or even other objects in the sky, making them difficult to detect and identify.

Alternatively, some people believe that the shape-shifting abilities of these UFOs could be related to the use of advanced materials or energy fields. For example, the UFO might be made of a material that is capable of changing its shape and appearance in response to external stimuli, or it could be using an energy field to manipulate its own form.

Regardless of the technology at play, it is clear that changing UFOs represent one of the most fascinating and enigmatic types of unidentified flying objects. Their ability to transform and adapt has captured the imaginations of people around the world, and it is a testament to the boundless possibilities of the universe.

I first seen multiple lights…round in nature…and thought to myself am I really seeing this?! So I grabbed my phone and took pictures!

It definitely is a UFO sighting. I have pictures. No one else seems to have seen this or is able to explain what happened.
This one was different from what I have experienced in the past. I do have photos on my ring doorbell from previous times too.

#2 – Chevron Shaped Types of UFOs

UFOs that are shaped like an upside-down V or chevron are often referred to as “Chevron” UFOs.

One example is the F-14 Tomcat, a military fighter jet that was used by the United States Navy from the 1970s until the 2000s. The F-14 has a distinctive shape, with two tail fins that are set at an angle and resemble a chevron.

Another example is the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber, a military aircraft that is designed to be difficult to detect by radar. The B-2 has a unique, bat-like appearance, with a triangular body and wings that are angled to form a chevron shape.

While these aircraft are known to have a chevron shape, it is important to note that not all Chevron UFOs can be easily explained away as being known aircraft. Many people continue to report seeing objects in the sky that have a chevron shape and whose identity cannot be immediately established, and the true nature of these objects remains a mystery.

I was laying in bed looking out the window partly cloudy day and started taking pictures towards sun when I saw the bright orange color. Started taking pictures before it disappeared behind the clouds. You can see obvious Chem like trail behind it. This is not the first time I have captured strange objects on camera but first time during day. This object was of Chevron symbol and looked to be ablaze it was so bright.
This is not the only on I have several different occurrences and pictures dating back several years of crazy things in the clouds.

#3 – Cigar Shaped Types of UFOs

While getting ready to take off from PWA, I looked to the NW (wearing NVG’s) and saw an elongated oval shaped object

As stated above, I saw the elongated object moving from 2 to 4 o’clock. It was not visible without looking through NVG’s. It had no lights. When comparing it to the planes in the airspace around it, it was very large. Bigger than 3 777’s. When it got to the 4 o’clock position it faded away quickly. The skies were clear.

#4 – Circle Shaped Types of UFOs

As the name suggests, this type of UFO is circular in shape.

Low cloud, 5 lights circling in the distance, then 5 lights directly over my car.

I watched them whilst driving for a couple of minutes until I turned left, i kept trying to look to see if they were still there. I turned into a small village Culham about 5:50, my car radio started playing up, white noise, I hit the radio button a few times and it went back to normal. I left the village on a road called The Burycroft, very straight and dark.

Five balls of light in a row went over my car ahead of me, (maybe 25-30 metre high, they stopped at the end of the road then came back, the lights stayed in a line, this happened three times in total, very quick and in a matter of seconds. My blood rain cold, I was quite shaken but didn’t want to stop the car.

The lights were bright, not blinding, they didn’t appear to have any solidity, there was no sound. Nothing like this has ever happened to me, I didn’t believe in such things
