Not witnessed myself but my aunt texted me at 5:45pm and sent two pics of the object asking if I might know what it was. She stated she was near the Roanoke Regional Airport sitting in her car waiting to pick up someone and saw the object. Airport is in the North part of Roanoke (between NW and NE sections of city). Advised that she had been watching it for over 1/2 hour and it had not moved at all. Said it was “not a star” because it was too big and bright. Said at one point a commercial plane flew under (lower) than object. I suggested it was a planet but she texted about 15 minutes later and said “poof – its gone” I live in nearby Salem and went outside to see if I could see it but could not due to tree line.
Hi, I am a Indian residing in China since 2014. I am working as Senior Merchandising Manager in a Jewelry Export House in Guangzhou, China. Recently I planned family vacation to Philippines from 24-27 Nov. in Boracay Island. I stayed at Fairways & Bluewater Resort at New Coast, Boracay Island. On 25th Nov night, at Fairways & Bluewater Resort I was clicking images of surroundings and in sometime I feel like looking up in Sky and I found this object glowing/pulsating. I put my iPhone XS Max on video mode and with its max 6X Zoom capacity I made 2 videos which are attached herewith. The object was hovering very high in sky and above the Ocean. Approx in 2 minutes time, it vanished or zoom above into sky (not sure). So, I am wondering what this object might be. Can you guys help me to figure out what I saw? Looking forward to hear from you. Thanks, Anurag
This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer, Phillipines International Director.
KENS NOTE: I was able to extract a photo from the two videos submitted. The object was stationary for a few minutes.
A UFO spotted over Lake Tahoe in the US in unprecedented detail is “100 percent” proof that aliens are visiting Earth. The sighting has been described as a “classic” spaceship by alien enthusiasts who claim it to be a flying saucer.
Holidaymakers at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, spotted the UFO zooming across the sky and were fortunate enough to capture it on video.
The craft was moving so fast it can barely be seen in the video, but some eagle-eyed experts slowed it down to get a better look.
The unnamed person who shot the video said: “We went to Lake Tahoe for vacation and we got a tour on a boat to ride on the lake. “I didn’t see the object until we got home, as I was checking the videos this object appeared on the video with tremendous speed.”
Some UFO experts are so convinced by the authenticity of the video that they believe it is only a matter of time before aliens reveal themselves to humans.
UFO Sightings Daily says on its website: “Here is the most detailed UFO I have seen all week. “This is a classic flying saucer, a beautiful metallic disk with a raised upper dome area. “This is 100 percent proof that aliens are monitoring human up close and personal.
Hi Ken: I had been sky watching for hours and I had not seen anything unusual so I was about to go back inside and have a nice hot cup of tea when I just happened to look up in the sky one last time and spot an object that was moving very fast through the air. The object just kept circling the same area of sky which allowed me to get a better look at it through my high powered zoom binoculars. The object was cylindrical shaped with a pointed front end and it had the appearance of a yellow crayon. It was aerodynamically shaped like a rocket but there was no flame or visible means of propulsion which I thought was very strange. I really had to capture this unusual crayon like object in a photograph so I could post it online and share it with all my friends so I immediately picked up my Nikon P900 camera off of the garden table and aimed the camera towards the object. I zoomed in on the object and it was really hard to hold the camera steady at such high magnification but I managed to take a photograph capturing the object just before it flew off in a straight line which caused me to lose sight of it. I was left very perplexed… Why was the object circling around in the sky like that? What could this object have been? Once again I am left with more question than answers. The Photograph was taken on the 1st of May 2018, 5:08 PM at Newton Abbot Devon England. Have a great week my friend all the best John.

My wife and I saw two parallel rows of lights, each row containing 3-5 circular lights. Lights were bright orange. In between these two rows of lights I briefly observed a dark gray colored object appear. The dark gray object reminded me of what the exterior of a military aircraft looks like. I only saw this gray object in between the lights for about 3 seconds. The lights were bright and visible for approximately 3-5 minutes before dimming and no longer being visible. After all lights had disappeared, one more light gradually appeared, stayed visible for approximately a minute before dimming and vanishing like the lights before it. We began filming approximately 2 minutes after first we first observed the lights. More lights were present before we started filming. We used an IPhone X . KENS NOTE: There were also helicopters at the end of the video.
Excited by the mystery of a famous video
captured in Turkey over a decade ago, some citizens over the internet processed
it through a stabilization tool, revealing strange images that could bewilder
even seasoned ufologists.
The enigma started back when a Turkish night
guard Yalcin Yalman began recording a video of bright, crescent-shaped objects that
appeared and regularly hovered over the Marmara Sea close to the resort village
of Kumburgaz in 2008.
His pastime made him famous as a UFO
spotter, and his videos immediately went viral because of their authenticity
confirmed by several experts and witnesses who saw similar objects at the time
The device Yalman used was not impressive
at all because the original videos were very shaky. When zoomed in or out, the
quality and definition of the unstabilized recording dropped significantly. It
led some skeptics to suggest the UFO was an American stealth drone or other
The Kumburgaz videos were stabilized many times, including the last one surfacing online just this week. YouTube channel Unidentified Aerial Phenomena made it available on the video-sharing site. Adobe Premiere video editing tool was used for video stabilization to try solving the mystery of the greenish dots in the center of the lit-up crescent.
Stinson Lake, proximate to a U.S. army training area, may be an alien or government UFO base, or a focus of investigation or travel by aliens, one reason being possible mining as the area is rich in precious minerals. A mirror ship was photographed directing a beam of light at the hillside. Two questions that come to mind are: What was it? And why was it at an army operations area?
I was given a photograph last night of an object above the snow covered evergreens in the soupy late afternoon February sky of 2000 at Stinson Lake. It is not a painted object such as blue underneath and white on top, or black, or part metal and paint…
It is like a mirror reflecting the milky white sky above and the forest below color for color, tone for tone, hue for hue with intensity above surrounding fields at nearest equator and diminishing below surrounding fields (slightly faded at outer or left and right edges) undeniably displaying a round or roundish shape.
There are no wings and no engines noise according to the photographer. There is a shadow outlining its shape in a clearing below it and the same shadow is on the underside reflection. There’s more.
After closely examining the object utilizing digital enhancement techniques, globes are seen underneath with hints of green and white lights, a possible dome on top which almost completely blends in with the sky and globular energy field where there are color shifts in the pixel spectrum where there are no added colors but a reorganization of existing colors suggesting a mirage effect also seen with the Mexico videos. The shifted field forms a perfect globe around the object exactly touching is outer edge no matter the attitude of the craft.
Sitting back a little from a 600% enlargement on the monitor screen, a field ‘net’ effect is obvious. The field appears webbed like a fish net formed into a globe and transparent white. Further, there is evidence of a beam of light pointing at a dark round spot also in a clearing on a nearby hill.
Above the object is a mushroom-shape distortion similar to the globular energy field but larger, which raises the question of the portal of origin or a second ship. It was so sudden, the photographer never had any indication of what was about to transpire as he shot landscape photographs in the otherwise peaceful environs around him.
The photographer happened to be at the site near where the U.S. Army has historically conducted paratrooper and other training. The Army’s conventional presence may well have been replaced by something extremely advanced. But the sightings have not diminished in that remote and tranquil location unlikely to be stumbled upon by any tourist.
On a hot summer night about 2-3 am in Vietnam I think it was Quon Loî . I was atop a bunker on guard duty. When an object at star distance caught my eye because of its rapid movements. Not wanting to lose sight I grabbed my Starlight scope and observed this object seen to withdrawal into space then forward. Would shoot across in a horizontal manner and appeared to do it at an incredible speed. Still through the starlight scope could not even begin to estimate its size ? Except star size. Never called it in as I was in awe. Until a few years later and the Movie Close Encounters of The Third Kind came out. Freaked me out soo much. Never told this story to the public. But it’s a true story. NOTE: The above image is real but from another similar investigation.

When housewife Sharon Rowlands filmed what appeared to be a UFO flying over her tiny Derbyshire village, little did she realise what rewards the footage would bring her.
The 6-and-a-half-minute tape has been snapped up by an American TV company for more than £20,000.
Mrs Rowlands can also be proud of the knowledge her film is being ranked as one of the best pieces of UFO video footage ever shot.
California-based Kiviat Productions, which snapped up the film, is currently negotiating with TV networks across the world to show the tape as part of its ‘Could It Be True?’ Series – but not before officials from NASA are given a preview.
Mrs Rowlands (44), who lives with husband Hayden (45), said: “I’ve watched UFO programmes and if there is such a thing, this is as good a photograpgh as you’re going to get.
“I was a complete and utter disbeliever but seeing this has made me think twice. It was huge and through the lens it looked like it was going to hit me. I couldn’t believe it – it’s like nothing else I’ve ever seen.”
The tape has been locked in a bank vault since her chance filming on October 5, 2000, with a camcorder which she had received only days earlier as a gift.
Kiviat executive producer Robert Kiviat found Mrs Rowlands’ film while scouring the internet.
He said: “This is one of the top five pieces of video footage of UFOs ever taken.”
The Rowlands are just a couple living in a remote area with no agenda and no previous experience in UFO videos – they just appear to have had their camcorder out at the right time.”
A Meteorological Officer spokesman said there were no freak weather conditions on October 5 which could have caused the circular shape in the sky.
The American space agency NASA is believed to be interested in the Rowland’s photograph because of its marked resemblance to a photograph taken during the 1996, STS-75 mission. The photograph was taken by Astronaut Claude Nicoltier.
From 1970 to 1973, Claude Nicoltier worked as a graduate scientist with the Institute of Astronomy at Lausanne University and at the Geneva Observatory.
He then joined the Swiss Air Transport School in Zurich and was assigned as a DC-9 pilot for Swissair, concurrently participating part-time in research activities of the Geneva Observatory.
At the end of 1976 he accepted a Fellowship at the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Space Science Department at Noordwijk, Netherlands, where he worked as a research scientist in various airborne infrared astronomy programs.
In July 1978 he was selected by ESA as a member of the first group of European astronauts.
Under agreement between ESA and NASA he joined the NASA astronaut candidates selected in May 1980 for astronaut training as a mission specialist.
Mrs Rowlands’ footage capped a hive of activity in Bonsall which has seen villagers reporting 19 UFO sightings in just four months leading up to last October.
UFO enthusiast Omar Fowler founded the Derby-based Phenomenon Research Association 10 years ago and has been tracking UFOs since the 1970s.
He believes Bonsall is right up there with the foremost UFO hotbeds – including Mexico city, the USA, and Fleetwood in Lancashire.
Mr Fowler said: “I viewed Mrs Rowlands’ tape and I was amazed at what I saw. I consider it to be one of the most important sightings of recent years – comparing very well with a recent clip from Mexico – and it typifies activity in Bonsall.”
Mr Kiviat said he will show the tape to NASA optical physicist Dr. Bruce Macabbee.
“The Rowlands’ tape will shock a lot of people because the image shown is the same as one taken by NASA’s own cameras showing what appears to be a UFO hovering in space, maybe three miles wide,” Mr Kiviat said. ”
The UFO near the International Space Station has compelled many to believe that Donald Trump’s space force is active in space.
It was around a year back that the United States President Donald Trump talked about the vitality of launching a space force. After the milestone announcement, conspiracy theorists outlandishly started arguing that the president had ordered the Air Force to launch this new military wing to combat a future alien invasion.
These alien mongers are up in arms again after they spotted a seemingly triangular object near the International Space Station.
Video of this mysterious event, which was actually spotted by a man named Scott M, was uploaded to YouTube by conspiracy theory channel MrMBB333. The newly emerged clip shows a UFO hovering very near the ISS cameras.
“This is not a reflection, in fact, this object over here as you’ll see reflects light itself. It seems to be some sort of large craft. You’ll see when I zoom in and put it in slow motion, you’re going to see light reflecting off it and it glistens. It’s teetering back and forth from left to right,” Daily Star quoted the conspiracy theorist as saying.
The video uploaded by MrMBB333 has already gone viral on online spaces and conspiracy theorists have started arguing that Donald Trump’s space force is operational in the space. As per these conspiracy theorists, Donald Trump’s space force was launched without the knowledge of other world powers like China, Russia and India.
In the meantime, a section of alien enthusiasts has started claiming that the UFO could be actually an alien mothership that has reached the solar system from outer space. As per these alien believers, these advanced extraterrestrials are maintaining regular contact with astronauts aboard the ISS and space agencies like NASA are aware of their existence.
Hi Ken: I was in the back garden sky watching when I spotted a fast moving object that seemed very erratic. The object shimmered as it flew through the sky making sharp twists and turns flying in and out of the clouds. The object looked dart like and it’s surface was white and seemed to be very reflective. It was moving extremely fast and I was having real trouble moving the camera to follow it across the sky, but luckily I was able to keep up with the object and focus the camera just in time allowing me to take a photograph just before I lost sight of it. What could this mysterious unidentified object be? The G forces must of been immense inside this object with all those sharp twists and turns and I really doubt that there were any organic pilots inside. I reckon that it was probably some type of remote controlled alien drone that was surveilling the area for some unknown purpose. Whatever the object was it was very strange and it’s erratic movements were quite Puzzling. The photograph was taken at 12:01 PM on the 1st of November 2019 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

The report included here was originally posted on the Coast to Coast AM web site with photographs.
On 03-01-01, A Salt Lake City truck driver was making a delivery in downtown Salt Lake City, when he became aware of a bright flash. As the driver looked for the source of this flash, he saw a ring-shaped object in the sky. Fortunately, he had a digital camera in his truck. He took several photos of the object, one immediately after the other.
The photographs (seen below) clearly show the object as a dark, ring-shaped object. Ultimately, the ring would disappear into the cloud cover. The truck driver was interviewed by Art Bell about his sighting and photographs. There were two additional witnesses to the events, one a truck driver who was driving behind the first truck. He did not wish to be interviewed, and subsequently what he saw exactly is not known.
The third witness was working on Beck St, and saw the ring-shaped object. He was later contacted, but never responded.
More information: The primary witness and photographer of the object also related to an investigator that he took the photographs with an Aiptek pen camera. He stated that the ring did NOT appear to be smoke, and was clearly seen. This is evident from the photographs.
When looking at the photographs in sequence, the object seems to move from left to right. With the truck moving from right to left looking at the object, at least part of the object’s movement could be attributed to the movement of the truck, as the driver took the photographs.
Another interesting aspect of the photographs is seen in photos 6 and 7. There is a type of hook seen only in these two picture. What this is, is anyone’s guess. The ring-shaped object is also strange in that it appears to change shape slightly from photo to photo.
Hi Ken: I was looking out the back door watching the heavy downpour of rain that we were having in the area when all of a sudden I saw a flash of light. Naturally I thought it was just a flash of lighting but there was no sound of thunder which I thought was strange. As I looked around and looked up into the sky I was shocked by what I saw. There was a cigar type craft that was just hanging there stationary in the sky. The cigar type craft had a large dome attach to the top of it and I could clearly see that the craft was definitely a mechanical nuts and bolt machine which someone somewhere had engineered. I was so excited by what I was seeing and I just had to take some photographs of this alien craft so I could show other people what I witnessed hanging above the housing estate. I immediately ran into the front room to get my Nikon P900 camera and once I had retrieved it I ran straight back into the kitchen and looked out though the back door to see if the craft was still there in the sky and to my surprise it was. I leaned against the door frame to steady myself before I took a photograph of the strange alien craft. I then watched it for a while before there was another flash of light, which I could now see that it had originated from the domed area of the craft which was all ready illuminated by a yellow light that seemed to be inside. It was incredible that there was no sound coming from the craft as it hung there in the sky. All I could hear was the heavy rain hitting the ground. I then noticed a ball of light off to the right of the craft so I raised up my camera to take some more photographs, when all of a sudden there was a really intense bright white light which only seemed to surround me and it caused my legs to give way. I fell backwards towards the kitchen floor and narrowly avoided smashing my camera as I hit the floor. My legs were like jelly and by the time I had regained enough strength in my legs to get up off the floor the alien craft was gone. I couldn’t believe it… all I wanted was another shot. The photograph was taken at 3:49 PM on the 27th of October 2019, at Newton Abbot Devon England. Have a great week my friend all the best John.
Hi Ken: I was on the beach at Teignmouth and I was taking photographs of a passing passenger plane that was very high up in the sky, when all of a sudden a white cylindrical object flew into frame. I managed to capture the object in one of the photographs. The cylindrical object was moving very fast and it flew right passed the passenger plane before it made a quick turn and headed out to sea where I lost sight of it. The pilots must of seen this object as it had passed right in front of the cockpit window. If only there was a way to track down and talk to these pilots…
Many pilots in and around the United Kingdom have spotted unidentified objects flying in the sky around them but they rarely come forward to report there observations due to ridicule and worst of all the threat of losing their job. I only wish that this would change and that these pilots had a voice and were able to freely report what they had witnessed in the skies above us.
The Photograph was taken 6:55 PM on the 17th of September 2019 at Teignmouth Devon England. All the best John.

Several sightings of a silver disc would surface around Knoxville and Oak Ridge in Tennessee. Beginning on 12th October, at around 11:25 pm, radar operators at Knoxville Airport would begin tracking 11 different objects.
An F-82 fighter jet was scrambled in an effort to intercept the strange targets. On two occasions it would get near to its targets only for them to disappear. Although the pilot and radar operators were aware of the object’s presence, a visual sighting was not forthcoming.
Three days later, however, on the afternoon of the 15th October, two state troopers at Oak Ridge would see two “shiny silver objects shaped like a bullet” at around 3:20 pm. While one of the objects seemingly disappeared out of sight, the other remained, hovering for around five minutes. Then, it changed direction and disappeared into the distance.
Around an hour later, Special Agent William Price would receive a report that a shiny, silver disc was hovering over the K-25 plant also in Oak Ridge. The object was also picked up on radar. Observers on the ground would also report seeing an F-82 jet plane in the vicinity seemingly attempting to intercept the craft.
Sightings of almost identical silver disc-shaped craft would surface on several other occasions throughout October, on the 20th, 23rd, 24th, and on 5th November. While sightings were unfolding over all of the United States, they do seem to be particularly concentrated in this region for several weeks. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Me and my 10 year old son saw UFO maybe up to 4 flying over our home about 11 pm last Friday night. They came from the right there is no flight path there we actually saw 2 join into one in a red color but I never got that on film. There was another one that hovered back and forward and side to side over my home. We went downstairs and videoed what was a flashing blue and silver circle moving around. I videoed it when I came back up. I froze shot the video and can see a blue looking circle with what looks like some discharge around it. I have been studying Ufology for 27 years and never seen anything like this. They were not choppers as they made no sound when I flashed my light on my phone. They all came nearer and then slowly dispersed .
One of the most intriguing encounters according to back in the United States at Hamilton Air Force Base. It was early in the morning, a little after 1 am on the 21st June when the two witnesses, Garland and Pryor, were going about their normal on-duty activities.
However, a strange blue-flame-like object began approaching them in the distance. They would estimate it to be around 2,000 feet high and moving through the air in excess of 1,000 miles per hour. When the two airmen used their military-issued binoculars to view the objects, they could clearly see a “circular craft, think in the center and tapered to (the) edges”. They would go on to describe the object as a cone-shape.
As the object passed over them, the blue flame was distinctly clear. What’s more, it appeared perfectly clear to them that the object was under intelligent control. After it disappeared into the night sky, it would seemingly come back around again. As it reappeared there was a “roaring like thunder” sound that rang over the entire region.
The craft would pass over the base four more times in the next 25 minutes before it finally disappeared. Once again, this continuing circular passes over the base would suggest some kind of reconnaissance mission.
Perhaps of most concern, however, was the suddenly called press conference the day after the sighting. The two pilots would appear and essentially withdraw everything they had said the previous day. With that, the Air Force stated there would be no further comment on the incident. To say some were suspicious of the move would be an understatement. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At 9:380 pm, we noticed a bulb like object with a tail and lights all around it coming in from above our apartment. We live on the 9th floor in a downtown Fort Lauderdale apt., close to Fort Lauderdale International Airport. We went outside to the balcony and noticed the object turned and started moving West. I grabbed my phone and started taking pictures, I was able to get 1 clear picture and 2 others of it moving, but they are blurry. We watched the object continue to move West for 5 minutes. It just continued up into the sky on its path until it just looked like a star. When the object was near us, it did seem like it was almost wobbling from side to side at times. The night before, 9/25, there were black helicopters near our apartment, which came in from above the way the object had arrived. This was the night before we actually saw the object though so I am not sure that they are related
I was on vacation in 2014 in Beach Haven NJ. I was sitting on the deck of our rental house on Ocean Blvd. There were a few of the regular things far out into the ocean ( Container Ships waiting for the ports, etc ) but they were miles out. It was a perfectly clear night with about a 1/4 moon. As I was looking south, I saw something(s) in the water.not far offshore, what seemed to be maybe less than a mile. It seemed to get closer and I could see some very dim lights. ( I was thinking, where the hell did that fishing boat come from, since my view of the beach goes on for miles ). Fairly soon, it began to get closer and I’m still thinking it was a fishing boat.. Next thing I know, I had to rub my eyes because it looked like the “Fishing Boat) was above the water. well, the object(s) kept getting closer (Traveling from the South east to the North and North East, and I could see that they were in “The Air” so now I’m thinking crazy para-gliders that we see all day are flying at night.. But soon enough I notice that whatever they are, are giant. I took out my phone because I could not believe my eyes and I tried to record. But I could see after a few seconds that the video would be very dark. I switched to the camera option and started to take pictures. ( Note, this was high tech at the time, but still a crappy I-Phone 4. Maybe I should have put on the flash, but I was too awestruck watching to figure it out. As the objects got closer, I could clearly see 2 distinct objects. One object went directly over our house in a NW heading while the 2nd Object headed almost directly North along the beach, still maybe a hundred yards off shore. I’m fairly good at judging size, and these things were probably as big as a commercial airplane each one had what looked to be 3 rows of lights running from front to back on the underside. and they were completely silent ! They proceeded to head NE and N until I could no longer see them over the house, at which time I ran down to Ocean Blvd where I could see them seemingly speed up until they were out of sight. The next day I bought all of the local newspapers hoping someone else had seen them. Nothing. But Like I said, It was probably 2-3 in the morning. At the time, I figured I would not act like a freeaking crazy person and alert the media because my only evidence was crap pictures from an I-Phone 4. I talked about it to my friends and family, as a a freaking crazy siting and mostly forgot about it except when stories of “LBI” as we call it come up. The reason I am contacting “You” is because I recently found that phone in my junk drawer and remembered the video was on that phone. I figured I could try to use “some Program” to enhance the video, but that is not my specialty. I would gladly send the phone to you with the unedited pictures and video and maybe you can do something with it. I would really like to know if what I was, are actual UFO’s or just some damn man made thing I never heard of. Note, I’m a bit of an air craft enthusiast and I have never seen anything like this.
This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer Assistant State Director.
I received an email report of a UFO incident from the witness involved. The sighting reportedly occurred on Sunday, October 20, 2002, near Tyrone, PA in Blair County. The man forwarded details concerning his experience, as well as two color photographs that he took of the object before it departed.
The witness indicated that he had also forwarded this material to the National UFO Reporting Center.
The witness is very concerned about being ridiculed, and requests not to be identified. Due to his concerns, my only communication with the witness has been via email. He has responded to my request for additional details concerning his observation.
Due to computer problems, I am unable to post the photographs at this time. I have talked with Peter Davenport at the National UFO Reporting Center, who is expected to post the pictures as soon as he completes his sighting report updates.
Sighting report narrative:
The witness was hiking in the woods on Ice Mountain near the town of Tyrone. The man had stayed out longer than he expected that day. He estimated that it was about 7:30 P.M. (local time) as he was walking back to his vehicle, when he noticed a bright light south of his location, moving towards him in a northerly direction. His first impression was that it was an airplane.
The light appeared similar to the brightness of a normal aircraft light when first observed. He then noticed that the light suddenly stopped, then began to pulsate and appear to brighten and dim. The witness then noticed a faint haze that was orange-red in color, and which encircled the object.
The pulsation pattern of the light began to increase, and it started to flicker very rapidly. The light became much brighter as it pulsated. Suddenly a thin beam of very bright blue-white light was emitted from the bottom of the object to the ground.The witness points out that this was not an ordinary searchlight.
The witness stated, “This was no searchlight. Even a well focused searchlight tends to diffuse with distance, but this light was a tight, bright beam from top to bottom.” The man tried to describe the appearance of the beam with the following statement. “Imagine a piece of dental floss held at arms length, and you’ll have a good idea of the beam’s apparent width from my location.”
The witness said that the pulsating effect suddenly stopped, and the beam of light went out. The observer commented, “As far as the form, I couldn’t see any craft or object per se, just the bright light itself and the beam that came down from it, as it was pretty dark at the time.” The object at first appeared to be circular in shape and orange-red in color. When the object stopped moving and began pulsating it seemed more oval or egg shaped.
The object continued to hover in the sky, and the witness ran to his vehicle which was about 100 yards away, to get his Olympus digital camera. The witness took one photograph as the object hovered, then a second picture was obtained just as the object was beginning to move around slowly in a tight circle. As the man prepared to take a third picture, the object, “suddenly shot straight up in the air at fantastic speed and was gone from sight.”
The sky conditions at the time of observation were described as partly cloudy. The witness did not detect any sound, or odd smells during the sighting. The witness estimates the total incident lasted about 5 minutes or less.
The witness commented that at the location where the light beam appeared to meet the ground, he estimated that he was about 1/4 mile away, or farther from the object, and that it was about 1,000 feet in altitude. The witness also mentioned that there is a large microwave relay tower at the top of the mountain, and, “the beam appeared to be hitting the ground close to the tower.” The man couldn’t see the exact spot where the beam hit.
In closing, the witness had these comments to make. “I don’t know what this thing was, but I know I’ve never seen anything like it before.” and “If anyone else saw this object, please let me know. If for no other reason, so I can stop questioning my sanity.”
