I was watching satellites go overhead from my back porch like I often do, and I noticed 2 satellites traveling across the sky very close together. I thought, “thats weird, 2 satellites together?” But then I realized I must be seeing the front and back reflective panels of a single satellite. Just as I thought this, the twin satellites were directly overhead when they did something I have never seen a satellite do. They rapidly slowed to a stop! It really did feel like my blood went cold! As I stood there dumbfounded, the hovering “satellites” instantly accelerated back to the same speed they had been traveling when I first saw them. They began to fly a pattern of oddly straight lines and instantaneous 90 degree turns. They would travel in a straight line for a second or two, then make an instant 90 degree turn! I mean, literally instant. They appeared to be traveling at the same speed of a satellite yet managed to make a 90 degree turn?? How?? I yelled for my (now ex) wife who came out to watch with me. While she kept her eye on the reflective little dots in the sky, I ran downstairs for my binoculars. I spent several minutes but could not find them. I went back to my wife and we watched these objects do probably 50-100 turns in this manner. Eventually they moved into a different area of the sky over the cascades where we lost sight of them. I originally didn’t report this because I thought people might think I was nuts. I don’t care anymore. I’m a skeptic, not a conspiracy theorist, spiritualist, x-files believer, or any of that stuff. But I genuinely believe that what I saw was an intelligently guided craft of some kind, not made on this planet Earth. I can’t believe all this stuff is actually real. I feel a little strange. I feel like I know something that everyone around me doesn’t. I will never forget that night. I’m really glad there is a group out there like you guys, cataloging these incidents. Hopefully our government will get on the ball and start doing the same thing. Thanks for your hard work MUFON! NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Another witness and I observed a large triangular craft hovering (or possibly moving imperceptibly slowly) less than 50 feet above the tree line. It was less than a mile south of the National Guard station on Avon Extended. It was about 2 am, and we were driving south. I was in the front passenger seat, and the object was on the right side of the road (the side I was on). At it’s closest, we were approximately 300 feet from it. I have absolutely no doubt it was an aircraft, but of what origin I don’t have a clue. We saw the object hovering above the trees. It was roughly 75 feet along each edge, and flatly horizontal to the ground. The actual body of the object was hard to discern in the dark, but I had the impression it was dark in color. As I think about it now years later, the lights stood out much more than the object, because of the darkness. There was a single, bright white light pointing straight downward at each vertex of the triangle shape. I would estimate the lights were a foot or so in diameter. Based on the light arrangement, one of the triangle points was oriented to the north. I have seen that people sometimes report a light in the middle or on the sides. I don’t recall anything but the 3 lights in the vertices. They remained white during the sighting. I don’t recall any sound, and I’m pretty sure my window was cracked. If the object was moving, we couldn’t tell. It might have been moving very slowly. We were both too shocked to stop, or take pictures. It might seem unbelievable, but we both basically said “what the fuck is that?” and just stared at it as we drove by. Yes, we did have phones with us. I’m still perplexed by why we didn’t stop or take pictures, but it was genuinely so unexpected that it took all mental capacity just to process it. The sighting lasted less than a minute overall. I’m not 100% certain of the date. I am guessing it was July 24, 2016, because this matches the date of video of a similar object taken over Charlottesville earlier in the night, and it is roughly when I remember the sighting occurring.

A witness in Piedmont, Missouri, U.S. has reported sighting an alien entity on 24 May, 2013 at 11:10 PM. This report has been obtained from a testimony included in the database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), published on 26 May, 2013.
It reported to ASD by phone and the witness wishes to remain anonymous. The witness describes how he heard a strange sound. “I heard a strange humming sound outside of my house which is on 100 acres of wooded area near Piedmont, Missouri.” The witness describes what he saw, when he went outside to investigate the sound. He also talks about the color, direction and elevation of the object.
“I went outside to investigate what the low humming was and saw a large brightly glowing orange/red ball of light on the NE corner of my house, just above the roof line and approximately 15t. from the house.” He describes how it looked like a solid object. He also talks about his reaction and how he called his son to see it.
“It looked like a solid object underneath a halo of light surrounding it. I was standing about 30 ft. away from the object. I was in shock and stood there, frozen, while calling to my 36-year old son to come out to see it, which he did.” The witness then tells us how he and his son watched the object hovering in the same place for 20 minutes. He also talks about sighting more objects in the woods.
“We both watched as this object for about 20 minutes or so as it hovered in the same spot, wavering somewhat, then it moved to the Southeast and noticed that there were at least 10 more of these objects in the woods at and below the tree line about 100 yards from our position.” The witness further tells us how the object moved slowly towards the woods. “The object moved very slowly towards the woods, seeming to be unaware of our presence or not to care that we saw it.” He also describes his failed attempt to take pictures of the objects with his phone.
I tried desperately to get my cell phone to come on so I could take a picture but it would not work. I thought the battery was drained, but after the object was out of sight the phone resumed working.” The witness describes the humanoid being they encountered. He also tells us how it vanished.“There was a 4ft. tall humanoid being standing next to the tree and a little behind it. It looked greyish, but it was hard to tell in the darkness even though there was a full moon out. I just got a glimpse of it before it vanished.”
The witness talks about time dilution and how he realized that they had only spent a short time outside of the house. “When we got back inside I was shocked to see that it was at least 50 minutes to an hour later than when we went outside, as it seemed like only 20 minutes of time had lapsed.” The witness tells us how a helicopter followed the same direction of the UFOs as if trying to investigate.
‘Next, we heard a helicopter approach and looked out the window as it flew in the same direction as the UFOs. I have never seen a helicopter out here in my entire life. We did not go outside to look at it.” He describes how his son was approached by the police the next day to inquire about UFOs and aliens. “The next evening my son was in town getting some groceries when he was approached by two policemen. They asked my son how he was doing and if he believed in aliens or ever saw an alien. He replied that he did not.”
The witness then tells us how he and son did not recall the incidents of the previous night for a long time. “This event triggered the memory of the prior night and when he returned home he asked me if I recalled the same things he did, which I did recall, including the sighting of the being by the tree. We both found it extremely odd that we did not think of the previous night’s event earlier in the day, or that we were not more upset by it, and had not called anyone about it.”
The witness wonders how the police knew about the incident. He also tells us that his intention is not to gain publicity and he was scared by the incident. “How did the police know about this event? We spoke to no one about it. I called you to make this report in an effort to see if anyone else has reported anything similar but I don’t want any publicity and don’t want to talk to anyone else. The whole thing has me a little scared.”
The witness finally tells us that UFO activity in common in that region. “We have seen balls of light in this area before, and have seen unidentified objects, but nothing as close or as dramatic as this. My parents and grandparents owned this same land for many years, and they said that all kinds of weird stuff happened here but they did not talk about it much.” NOTE” The above image is CGI.
Philip Schneider was mysteriously found dead on January 16, 1996 after conducting several controversial lectures throughout the US, including Denver where he covered topics such as, Space-Defense, black helicopters, railroad cars built with shackles, extraterrestrials and the secret black budget.
Philip Schneider claimed to be an ex-government structural engineer who helped build deep underground military bases (DUMB) around the United States. He also claims to be one of only three people to survive the 1979 incident between the alien Grays and the US military at the Dulce, New Mexico underground base.
Philip voluntarily retired from the military after he disagreed with their spending, secrecy and unconstitutional actions.
His ex-wife, Cynthia Drayer believes that Philip Schneider was murdered because he publicly revealed the truth about the US government’s involvement with UFOs.
The following quote is from Philip Schneider from one of his lectures:
“I love the country I am living in more than I love my life, but I would not be standing before you now, risking my life, if I did not believe it was so. The first part of this talk is going to concern deep underground military bases and the Black Budget. The Black Budget is a secretive budget that garners 25% of the gross national product of the United States.
The Black Budget currently consumes $1.25 trillion per year. At least this amount is used in black programs, like those concerned with deep underground military bases.
Presently, there are 129 deep underground military bases in the United States”.
Philip Schneider recounts his encounter with extraterrestrials in the following excerpt:
“I was involved in building an addition to the deep underground military base at Dulce, which is probably the deepest base. My job was to go down the holes and check the rock samples, and recommend the explosive to deal with the particular rock.
As I was headed down there, we found ourselves amidst a large cavern that was full of outer-space aliens, otherwise known as large Greys.
I shot two of them.
At that time, there were 30 people down there. About 40 more came down after this started, and all of them got killed.
We had surprised a whole underground base of existing aliens.
Later, we found out that they had been living on our planet for a long time, perhaps a million years. This could explain a lot of what is behind the theory of ancient astronauts.”
“Anyway, I got shot in the chest with one of their weapons, which was a box on their body that blew a hole in me and gave me a nasty dose of cobalt radiation. I have had cancer because of that.”
“I didn’t get really interested in UFO technology until I started work at Area 51, north of Las Vegas. After about two years recuperating after the 1979 incident, I went back to work for Morrison and Knudson, EG&G and other companies. “
Philip Schneider released a lot of information pertaining to a supposed deep underground base under Denver International Airport as well. He said these underground bases were all throughout the US and they all were connected by a super highway.
Philip’s father Oscar Schneider was also said to have worked on secret government projects including the Philadelphia Experiment, which is the disputed story of the US Navy who supposedly made their large ship invisible for a brief amount of time. Philip and his family were reportedly harassed by government agents including his daughter who says she was being followed and monitored at school. Philip’s ex-wife Cynthia Drayer does not believe that he committed suicide. Here are some of her reasons:
1. “There was no suicide note.”
2. “Philip always told his friends and relatives, that if he ever ‘committed suicide’ you would know that he had been murdered”.
3. “From a number of sources, including his taped lectures (video and audio), and statements to his friends, and the borrowing of a 9mm gun, Philip felt that he and his family were being threatened and were in danger because of his lectures”.
4. “All of his lecture materials, alien metals, higher math books, photographs of UFO’s coming out of the Operation Crossroad A-Bomb, notes for his book on the alien agenda, were missing. (Everything else in the apartment was still there, including gold coins, wallet with hundreds of dollars, jewelry, mineral specimens, etc)”.
5. “No coroner ever came out to his apartment after his body was found (against Oregon Law) – and a police investigation never took under consideration that items were missing from his apartment – it was considered a suicide, plain and simple”.
Schneider’s death is still a mystery, there are reports that he committed suicide and reports that he was found tortured with piano wire around his neck. There are other reports suggesting that he had a stroke or a heart attack.
No one may ever know the truth of Schneider’s claims but there is no doubt that he was an interesting figure and that he had some very disturbing and controversial things to say.
During the dawn of Ufology in the United States, unidentified flying objects made themselves known to the leaders of the free world in 1952, buzzing over the White House, the Capitol building, and the Pentagon.
Seemingly the unknown objects were defying the very governmental agencies sworn to protect the United States from foreign powers.
Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base picked up a number of UFOs on their radar screens on July 19, 1952, beginning a wave of sightings still unexplained to this day.
These blips were objects traveling at about 100 M.P.H. but with the ability to accelerate to the unbelievable speed of 7,200 M.P.H.
The Washington National sighting was confirmed by other local radar, and then Andrews Air Force Base was contacted.
Andrews Tower, do you read? Did you have an airplane in sight west-northwest or east of your airport moving east-bound?
Andrews: No, but we just got a call from the center. We’re looking for it.
Washington: We’ve got a big target showing up on our scope. He’s just coming in on the west edge of your airport-the northwest edge of it eastbound. He’ll be passing right through the northern portion of your field on an east heading. He’s about a quarter of a mile from the northwest runway-right over the edge of your northwest runway now.
Andrews: What happened to your target now?
Washington: He’s still eastbound. He went directly over Andrews Fields and is now five miles east.
Andrews: Where did he come from?
Washington: We picked him up ourselves at about seven miles east, slightly southeast, and we have been tracking him ever since then. The Center has been tracking him farther than that.
Andrews: Was he waving his course?
Washington: Holding steady course, due east heading.
Andrews: This is Andrews. Our radar tracking says he’s got a big fat target out here northeast of Andrews. He says he’s got two more south of the field.
Washington: Yes, well the center has about four or five around the Andrews Range station. The Center is working a National Airlines – the center is working him and vectoring him around his target. He went around Andrews. He saw one of them – looks like a meteor. (Garbled)… Went by him… or something.
He said he’s got one about three miles off his right wing right now. There are so many targets around here it is hard to tell as they are not moving very fast.
Andrews: What about his altitude?
Washington: Well, must be over 8,000 feet as we don’t have him in radar any more.
Andrews Air Force Base notified the U.S. Air Force Air Defense Command. A couple of F-94 night fighters were ordered to the skies, but runway repairs held their mission up for several hours. By the time they were airborne, the mysterious objects were gone.
The fighters returned home, but soon the objects again showed up on the radar screens. For the next several hours, the fighters chased the illusive targets, but to no avail.
They were able to sight the UFOs, but lights of the unknown objects would darken as they were approached. Constant communication was kept with ground radar, and as the pilots lost sight of the UFOs, they also disappeared from ground radar. The UFOs were also separately witnessed by the crew of a B-29, and other commercial flights.
After a quiet week, the objects reappeared on July 26. After multiple radar operators confirmed the objects, the F-94s again began their search for the enigmatic lights over Washington. The results of their pursuit were identical to the week before. They could see the lights, but when they drew near, the lights would blackout.
After their fruitless journey, the planes returned home, only to hear that the objects again were being tracked by radar. One of the pilots stated his fear and frustration by air to ground radio.
“They’ve surrounded my plane, what should I do?” The phenomenal sights would bring about an Air Force press conference on July 29, with Major General John A. Samford in charge.
The official explanation was “temperature inversions,” which supposedly caused ground lights to bounce off of clouds, giving the appearance of lighted craft in the skies. The naive and trusting press accepted this explanation at first, in lieu of any other “reasonable” one.
This explanation was scoffed at, however, by Ufologists, knowing that it just did not explain what was seen by pilots and radar operators. Even Project Bluebook would also dismiss the “temperature inversion” explanation, as it later labeled the Washington sightings as “unknown.”
The radar operators offered their own reason for the rejecting the Air Force explanation. Radar controller Barnes would state, “Inversion blips are always recognized by experts, we are familiar with what weather conditions, flying birds, and [other] such things can cause on radar.
Temperature inversions on radar are typically weak returns and move at a slow ground speed. These blips were distinctly clear, reported as a very good return, solid and often traveled at unbelievable speeds.”
The Washington D. C. sightings are a solid case of UFO activity. Literally hundreds of eyewitnesses saw the objects, and photographed them. Many of these were Air Force personnel, considered as reliable. Many of them made comment of the sightings, one was a Sergeant Harrison: “I saw the … light moving from the Northeast toward the range station.
These lights did not have the characteristics of shooting stars. There were no trails and seemed to go out rather than disappear, and traveled faster than any shooting star I have ever seen.” The sightings continued throughout the month of July.

July 28, 1952
“Saucer” outran jet, pilot reveals
Investigation on in secret after chase over capital
Radar spot blips like aircraft for nearly six hours – only 1,700 feet up
By Paul Sampson, Post Reporter
Military secrecy veils an investigation of the mysterious, glowing aerial objects that showed up on radar screens in the Washington area Saturday night for the second consecutive week.
A jet pilot sent up by the Air Defense Command to investigate the objects reported he was unable to overtake the glowing lights moving near Andrews Air Force Base.
The CAA reported the objects traveled at “predominantly lower levels” – about 1700 feet. July 19.
Air Force spokesmen said yesterday only that an investigation was being made into the sighting of the objects on the radar screen in the CAA Air Route Traffic Control Center at Washington National Airport, and on two other radar screens . Methods of the investigations were classified as secret, a spoken said.
“We have no evidence they are flying saucers; conversely we have no evidence they are not flying saucers. We don’t know what they are,” a spokesman added.
The same source reported an expert from the Air Technical Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton Ohio, was here last week investigating the objects sighted July 19.
The expert has been identified as Capt. E. J. Ruppelt. Reached by telephone at his home in Dayton yesterday, Ruppelt said he could make no comment on his activity in Washington.
Capt. Ruppelt confirmed he was in Washington last week but said he had not come here to investigate the mysterious objects. He recalled he did make an investigation after hearing of the objects, but could not say what he investigated.
Another Air Force spokesman said here yesterday the Air Force is taking all steps necessary to evaluate the sightings. “The intelligence people,” this spokesman explained, “sent someone over to the control center at the time of the sightings and did whatever necessary to make the proper evaluation.
Asked whether the radar equipment might have been malfunctioning, the spokesman said, “radar, like the compass is not a perfect instrument and is subject to error.” He thought, however, the investigation would be made by persons acquainted with the problems of radar.
Two other radar screens in the area picked up the objects. An employee of the National Airport control tower said the radar scope there picked up very weak “blips” of the objects. The tower radar’s for “short range” and is not as powerful as that at the center. Radar at Andrews Air Force Base also registered the objects from about seven miles south of the base.
A traffic control center spokesman said the nature of the signals on the radar screen ruled out any possibility they were from clouds or any other “weather” disturbance.
“The returns we received from the unidentified objects were similar and analogous to targets representing aircraft in flight,” he said.
The objects, “flying saucer or what have you, appeared on the radar scope at the airport center at 9:08 PM. Varying from 4 to 12 in number, the objects appeared on the screen until 3:00 AM., when they disappeared.
At 11:25 PM., two F-94 jet fighters from Air Defense Command squadron, at New Castle Delaware, capable of 600 hundred mph speeds, took off to investigate the objects.
Airline, civil and military pilots described the objects as looking like the lit end of a cigarette or a cluster of orange and red lights.
One jet pilot observed 4 lights in the vicinity of Andrews Air Force Base, but was not able to over-take them, and they disappeared in about two minutes.
The same pilot observed a steady white light in the vicinity of Mt Vernon at 11:49 PM. The light, about 5 miles from him, faded in a minute. The lights were also observed in the Beltsville, MD., vicinity. At 1:40 AM two-other F-94 jet fighters took off and scanned the area until 2:20 AM., but did not make any sightings.
Visible two days
Although “unidentified objects” have been picked up on radar before, the incidents of the last two Saturdays are believed to be the first time the objects have been picked up on radar-while visible to the human eye.
Besides the pilots, who last Saturday saw the lights, a woman living on Mississippi Ave., told the Post she saw a very “bright light streaking across the sky towards Andrews Air Force Base about 11:45 PM. Then a second object with a tail like a comet whizzed by, and a few seconds later, a third passed in a different direction toward Suntland, she said.
Radar operators plotted the speed of “Saturday night’s visitors” at from 38 to 90 mph, but one jet pilot reported faster speeds for the light he saw.
The jet pilot reported he had no apparent “closing speed” when he attempted to reach the lights he saw near Andrews Air Force Base. That means the lights were moving at least as fast as his top speed-a maximum of 600 mph.
One person who saw the lights when they first appeared in this area did not see them last night. He is E.W. Chambers, an engineer at Radio Station WRC, who spotted the lights while working early the morning of July 20 at station’s Hyattsville tower.
Chambers said he was sorry he had seen the lights because he had been skeptical about “flying saucers” before. Now he said, he sort of “wonders” and worries about the whole thing.
Leon Davidson, 804 South Irving St. Arlington, a chemical engineer who made an exhaustive study of “flying saucers” as a hobby, said yesterday reports of saucers in the East, have been relatively rare.
Davidson has studied the official report on the saucers, including some of the secret portions never made public, and analyzed all the data in the report.
Davidson, whose study of saucers is impressively detailed and scientific, said he believes the lights are American “aviation products” – probably “circular flying wings,” using new type jet engines that permit rapid acceleration and relatively low speeds. He believes they are either “new fighter,” guided missiles or piloted guided missiles.
He cited some of the recent jet fighters, including the Navy’s new “F-4-D, which has a radical “bat-wing,” as examples of what the objects might resemble.
Davidson thinks the fact that the lights have been seen in this area indicates the authorities may be ready to disclose the “new aircraft” in the near future. Previously, most of the “verified saucers” have been seen over sparsely inhabited areas, Davidson explained, and now, when they appear here, it may indicate that “secrecy” is not so important any more.
KENS NOTE: I feel this is the biggest smoking gun available for alien craft presence on earth. This case was debunked by the Air Force and apparently it was lies on top of lies. This case make Roswell look like small potatoes.
August 1, 1952 -The United States Coast Guard released a photograph of an unidentified aerial phenomena. The photograph was taken by a 21-year-old Coast Guard photographer on 16 July, at the Salem Coast Guard Air Station.
Coast Guard Officer Shell R. Alpert snapped the photograph of what appears to be four UFOs. The UFOs were also witnessed by Coastguardsman Thomas Flaherty. This photograph has become one of the most recognized pictures in Ufology.

Mission….The air station’s missions included search and rescue, law enforcement, counting migratory waterfowl for the U.S. Biological Survey, and assisting icebound islands by delivering provisions. During World War IIanti-submarine patrols were also conducted from the air station.
One of the most controversial radar visual reports of the fifties occurred on August 31st, 1954. The story leaked out in December, 1954, and made front page headlines.
The official navy file on the event remained classified until the Directorate of Naval Intelligence released a copy upon my request in 1982.
During his 1973 visit to Australia, Dr. Hynek was able to interview the pilot involved in this famous incident, which became known as the “Sea Fury” encounter.
Dr. Hynek made his notes on this interview available to me during my 1984 visit to the Chicago headquarters of his organisation, the Centre for UFO Studies (CUFOS). I, in turn, provided Dr. Hynek with a copy of the official file on the incident.
Lieutenant J.A. O’Farrell was returning to Royal Australian Navy Air Station Nowra after a night cross country in a Sea Fury aircraft. After contacting Nowra at about 1910 hours, O’Farrell saw a very bright light closing fast at one o’clock.
It crossed in front of his aircraft taking up position on his port beam, where it appeared to orbit.
A second and similar light was observed at nine o’clock. It passed about a mile in from of the Sea Fury and then turned in the position where the first light was observed.
According to O’Farrell, the apparent crossing speeds of the lights were the fastest he had ever encountered. He had been flying at 220 knots. O’Farrell contacted Nowra who in turn confirmed that they had two radar “paints” in company with him.
The radar operator, Petty Officer Keith Jessop, confirmed the presence of 2 objects near the Sea Fury on the G.C.I. remote display.
The two lights reformed at nine o’clock and then disappeared on a north easterly heading. O’Farrell could only make out “a vague shape with the white light situated centrally on top.”
The Directorate of Naval Intelligence at the time wrote that O’Farrell was “an entirely credible witness” and that he “was visibly ‘shaken’ by his experience, but remains adamant that he saw these objects”
In a recent interview, “Shamus” O’Farrell described the incident:
“I said, “Nowra, this is 921. Do you have me on radar?” “And a few seconds later they came back and said, “Affirmative 921. We have you coming in from the west. We have another two contacts as well. Which one are you.” “I said, “I think I’m the central one.”
And so they said, “Do a 180…for identification.” So I did a quick 180 and then continued on around and made it a 360 back to where I was going.
“They said, “Yes, we’ve got you. You’re the centre aircraft.” I said that’s correct. They then said to me, “Who are the other two aircraft,” and I said, “I don’t know. I was hoping you would tell me, because I didn’t think there was anyone up here. “They said, “Well there shouldn’t be, and they certainly shouldn’t be that close to you.”
“So the conversation went on like this and I was very pleased to be talking to somebody because it gave me a lot of reassurance. With that these two aircraft came in quite close to me and I could really see the dark mass and that they were quite big, but I couldn’t make out any other lights or any other form of an aircraft. With that they took off and headed off to the north east at great speed.
“I was about to press the button and tell them at Nowra that the two aircraft were departing when Nowra called me up and said, “The other two aircraft appear to be departing at high speed to the north east. Is that correct?” and I said, “Yes!”. And they said, “Roger, we’ll see if we can track them.”
They tracked them for a while and then lost them. “I came in and landed at 7.30 (1930) and when I got there there were quite a few people waiting for me. I thought it was a bit strange and so they came over, and they said, “You sure you had aircraft out there!” and I said yes.
The Surgeon Commander came over and spoke to me. He said did I feel sick, or was I upset. I said no. He ran his hand over my head to see whether I had any bumps. He had a look at me and decided I was okay. So then he said, “Perhaps you’d like to come to the sick bay after you’ve changed and we’ll do an examination.”
So after I was finished I went up to sick bay and he gave me a more thorough medical, and said, no, I appeared to be alright. I found out later, that at the same time, they checked to make sure I hadn’t been drinking before I took off and all that sort of thing.”
During this interview, Dr. Hynek’s involvement came up:
“This man (Hynek) – a professor – had made a study of thousands of sightings all around the world and he had decided my sighting was one of those that he had not been able to explain away by other means.
Any way I had a talk with him. He was a very interesting chap and he made the comment that there were about 13 or 15, I don’t remember, sightings that he was aware of over the years that were like mine and could not be explained away. The interesting thing he said was that all of these sightings had been made by professional people in aviation.
By that he meant they were military pilots, military air crew, civil aviation operators, air traffic controllers, and the like, or airline pilots. These were the ones he was now (1973) going around meeting the people themselves and investigating.
All the others he had written off and had been able to explain down to some other phenomena. It came to the point where he said, “Your sighting cannot be explained away.” And he left it at that. To this day I wouldn’t know where it came from or where it went.”
I have had the opportunity to talk extensively with Shamus O’Farrell. I was particularly interested in how the interview with Dr. Hynek in 1973 came about:
“It was done through Sir Arthur Tange, who was secretary of the Department of Defence at the time. Hynek contacted him direct… Sir Arthur Tange contacted me and said Hynek was coming out. He had written to him, through the US Embassy, to set up a meeting.
And the next thing I knew I had a telephone call one day from Sir Arthur Tange saying that Hynek was coming and he would like me to met him. I said, well, I haven’t got all the facts, there all a bit hazy. So he sent me the two Defence Department files over to read, to refresh it all.”
Bill Chalker: “That seems to indicate a high level of interest in Hynek’s visit at the time?”
“Yes, well, I don’t think so. All that happened was that it was more of a courtesy because he was a very important guy, Hynek, and they wanted to show him the courtesies etc. As far as Defence was concern it was dead and forgotten but they had not got rid of the files. They kept them.
Normally when files like that are written off they are either decided they’ll put them in Archives or dispose of them and destroy them. But they had done neither. They had remained in the JIO. They’d kept them. I don’t know what they had in mind about it, I never questioned it. I just used them as a means to refresh my memory.
“Later the guy who became the chief Defence scientist, John Farrands, was very interested in it too, and he had done a lot of early investigations in most of the reports when he was chief defence scientist and in the period just before he became chief defence scientist. He had a talk with me.
I was a friend of his. I used to meet with him at lunch. He went over it in great detail. He knew it all. He agreed it was something that couldn’t be refuted. No matter how hard they tried, and they tried very hard to knock it all back. They checked everything from medical, down to when was the last time I had had a drink…”
Bill Chalker: “That must have been a bit of a concern to you?”
“Well, I wanted to hush it all up. That sort of investigation made me look a bit of a fool. I was worried it wasn’t going to do my career any good. “(Apart from the radar witness) it locked in a sighting over the NDB (non directional beacon) at Narulan, at the same time. There happened to be a guy working on the NDB.
It was down at the time.
He had gone to repair it. He happened to look up at the time because he saw these lights fly overhead. Also the air traffice control officer in the tower at Mascot saw them approaching him. “It was all investigated by the then RAAF guy who did it and later it was also investigated by the Joint Intelligence Bureau.”
In 1993 I assisted The Extraordinary television programme with a recreation of the Sea Fury incident. Shamus O’Farrell, Keith Jessop and I were interviewed on the show. The case stands as one of the best unexplained radar visual UFO cases on record in Australia. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On May 31 I was watching the sunset and saw two lights crossing the Northern Plains Inn. Then shortly thereafter a swarm chasing it and as they the two objects change direction the swarm followed after. This is an interesting video, but I wish we had more information. I don’t believe I have ever seen that many objects moving that fast. Any ideas? SEE WHOLE VIDEO HERE https://youtu.be/k3a-vQcYDRU
KENS NOTE: MUFON thinks it may be jets or commercial drones…..what ?????
A heat wave from a flying saucer! A Sci-fi movie scenario? well, not really. The following account still stands as one of the best “physical trace” cases in UFO lore. The United States Air Force certainly took it seriously, and so should we.
Scoutmaster, D.S. “Sonny” DesVergers of West Palm Beach, Florida was driving three scouts home on the night in question. He turned off the coastal highway and down an inland blacktop to go where one of the boys lived.
After traveling about ten miles inland he noticed a bright light in the palmetto thickets.
At first he passed by it, but then stopped down the road and turned the car around to go back. He hesitated in doing this, but could not help feeling that the light might have been a fire, perhaps indicating a crashed airplane.
DesVergers stopped the car, and got out to proceed to the scene of the bright lights. The scouts objected, afraid to be alone in the darkness, but the Scoutmaster headed toward the thick brush not far from the road. Nearby were the swamps, full of snakes, alligators, and who knows what other deadly creatures. About 50 yards or so from the road, Des Verges disappeared into the waist-high thicket. As he did, the first thing he noticed was a terrible odor.
Using his machete to clear his way with one hand, his other held his flashlight to show the way through the darkness. He carried a second flashlight on his person. The boys, waiting in the car, could clearly see the beam of their Scoutmaster’s flashlight through the brush.
Knowing he was being tracked by his flashlight, he shined it up into the canopy of some of the trees as he proceeded toward the unknown source of the lights that had caused him to stop on the road.
As he reached an opening in the brush, he paused momentarily to signal back to the waiting boys. As he did, he was suddenly overcome by an intensely humid heat. He glanced up into the clear night sky to get his bearings, but to his surprise, the many stars he had seen only a few moments ago were gone directly above him. Something else was blocking the view.
It took a moment for his eyes to adjust to a large, oval object which was hovering about 30 feet above him. As he slowly moved away from the frightening sight, he shined his flashlight toward the object. He could now make out the concave bottom of a smooth, round craft with a dome on top.
He continued to slowly move back from the object until he heard a sound which froze him in his tracks. The sound he heard was a large metal door closing. He now found himself surrounded by a red mist. He then lost consciousness.
The three boys, Bobby Ruffing, Chuck Stevens, and David Rowan could see their role model surround by what they could best describe as a “big red ball of fire.” Frightened, they left the car, and ran as fast as they could down the road to a house. Finding a farmer, they told him what they had seen. The farmer quickly called the State Police who soon arrived at the scene. Deputy sheriff Mott Partin picked the boys up and drove back to the car.
As they arrived, they saw DesVergers racing from the wooded area. Partin said that DesVergers was more scared than anyone he had ever seen.
The other officers who accompanied Partin ran into the area vacated by the frightened Scoutmaster, finding one of his flashlights still burning. They also noticed that the grass was flattened near the flashlight. The master’s second flashlight would never be found.
Arriving at Police headquarters, the officers noticed that DesVergers’ hands, arms, face, and cap were all burned. Although the officers were doubtful of the red mist account, they believed the rest of the Scoutmaster’s account enough to call the Air Force.
Edward J Ruppelt was heading the Air Force’s Project Bluebook at the time, and was impressed enough to take an investigative group to Florida to question DesVerges. He was accompanied by Second Lietenant Robert M. Olsson, and two captains, Hoey and Davis. Ruppelt would interview DesVergers several times, and remarked that the Scoutmaster remembered details very well, and did not respond in a rehearsed manner.
He felt that DesVergers was telling the truth.
An Air Force surgeon did an examination on DesVergers and determined that his wounds were indicative of mild sunburn. There were singed hairs, burns on his face and arms, and also his nostrils showed signs of being burned by a “flash heat source.” At the scene of the event, Ruppelt could find nothing to invalidate the Scoutmaster’s account.
Although there were no apparent signs of scorched earth or grass, later it was revealed after tests at Dayton, Ohio that the roots of the samples of grass taken at the scene were charred. Also, DesVergers’ cap showed signs of being damaged by “sparks of some kind.”
The three boys confirmed that the cap had not been burned earlier in the day. After interviewing the three boys, Ruppelt was convinced that they too were being truthful. DesVergers’ story stands today as a documented physical trace account of a UFO encounter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I am a truck driver. I was heading from Cleveland to Columbus Ohio which is a normal run for me. Everything happened right in front of me so I was able to see everything perfect. I noticed a few planes crossing paths in front of me. I also noticed something weird to my left was a star cluster with TONS of stars and some stars were moving in circles among the other stars. As I was weirded out by that I called my buddy who was parked nearby at a truck stop to witness what I was seeing. As weird as it sounds he seen it too. What caught my eye was when one flying object crossed from left to right in the sky in front of me and all the sudden stopped by the moon and shot a green light halfway down the sky, in a second of time, then disappeared. Craziest sh*t I’ve ever seen!!! After that incident I had been crazy fascinated by UFO’s and aliens so I eventually studied like insanity about all of it, now I have knowledge and “magical powers” to make such activities happen using my mind. After that incident as well I’ve seen more clear visuals and encounters that are EXACTLY said or described by videos documents people and even like a lot I have watched on the show. Why me ? I’m wishing to actually make a living with my stories and also continue to expertise this phenomenon!!! NOTE: The above image is from another UFO case file.
Time 05:24 LT, 100 mi. south of Louisiana coast Duration 10 mn Coordinates 20°18N / 92°W
On December 6, 1952 the crew (three men) of a USAF B-29 was flying over the Gulf of Mexico just before dawn when several unidentified targets appeared on the bomber radar’s scopes.
The targets maneuvered around the bomber at speeds at 5240 mph. The crew members had visual contact with the objects as they streaked past their aircraft.
After several minutes of maneuvering around the B-29, the five objects, still moving over 5000 mph, merged with a larger object which appeared on radar as a huge blip and began to accelerate and flashed across the three radar scopes at a speed computed to be over 9000 mph.
Statement of 1st Lt Norman Karas (USAF Blue Book record) : ” On 6 December 1952, while flying over the Gulf of Mexico towards Galveston, Texas, the flight engineer finished transferring fuel and I then turned on my radar set. I noticed an unidentified target approaching our aircraft at terrific rate odf speed.
I timed it as best as I could with my stopwatch over a known distance and the instructor flight engineer computed the speed at 5,240 mph. I alerted the entire crew to look for the object visually and some flashes of light were noticed. The closest the objects came were approximately 20 miles.
I saw about 20 objects in all, sometimes as much as two and three on the scope at one time. I re-calibrated the set and there was no change. The object was small and possibly round …….”.
“I also noticed a large return come up to within 40 miles of our tail from behind, and then disappeared. To the best of my knowledge, I believe that this object was real and moved at an extremely high speed and was not a set malfunction or optical illusion”.
Statement of 1st Lt William W. Naumann (USAF Blue Book record) : “Contact was broken off at 05:35 after a group of the blips merged into a ½ inch curved arc about 30 miles from our aircraft at 320 degrees and proceeded across the scope and off it at a computed speed of over 9,000 mph.

MAY 29, 2021………DADDYHOLE PLAIN TORQUAY DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken : One of my friends told me that there were five cruse ships anchored just offshore at Daddyhole Plain. It’s quite rare that you get to see this many cruise ships anchored in one place together, so I was very eager to go there, and take photographs of all the ships, while looking out for any unidentified objects around them. When I got to Daddyhole Plain I immediately started taking photographs of the ships. I could see that the anchored cruise ships were Marella Explorer, Marella Discovery, Arcadia, Oosterdam and Queen Victoria. I was looking towards the Arcadia cruise ship through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera, when three transparent spheres flew up out of the water and danced around right above the Arcadia cruise ship. I took a burst shot of the spheres capturing their bizarre movement. While the three spheres danced around above the ship, I noticed other spheres flying out of the water. I was completely gobsmacked by this! I have never seen so much USO / UFO Activity in one area. Surprisingly there was a lot of marine traffic about in the area at the time, and other people must have seen these spheres. Bizarrely back on the 10th of October 2020, I witnessed and photographed three similar looking spheres above the Westerdam cruise ship, and I am utterly astonished that I have photographed three more spheres above a cruise ship once again. These UFOs / USOs are very prevalent around this area, and anyone who doubts me should go to Daddyhole Plain with their camera set to burst mode and then photograph the cruise ships there, and you too will be shocked to see these sphere objects flying in and out of the water around them. It really is incredible that ever time I visit Daddyhole Plain I always seem to capture these strange objects. It really is quite compelling and worthy of further investigation. The photographs were taken at 4:32 PM on the 29th of May 2021, at Daddyhole Plain, Torquay Devon England. All the best John.

I worked as a Child Care Counselor at The New Mexico School for the Deaf in Santa Fe. I was driving in from Galisteo where I lived at the time, to begin my shift at 2:30pm. It was a bright, sunny, typical New Mexico afternoon. I was driving west on I-25 (I-25 generally is north/south but this section, due to mountains, orients east/west}. I was moving at approximately 60 mph. Sparse traffic. No cars nearby on my side of the freeway. The other (eastbound lanes) had 1 or 2 cars. The two sides of the freeway here are divided by a median of about 100 feet with scrub brush, a few junipers and grass. What I first noticed was a New Mexico Air National Guard fighter jet flying perpendicular to my path at such a low altitude (100 feet or less!) that I assumed it was going to crash to my left into the low rounded hills and scattered homes beyond the eastbound lanes. Instead, the jet rotated on its axis and pointed one wing skyward and the other towards the ground.in order to negotiate the narrow gap between two rounded hills. At this point I noticed a cigar shaped silver craft drifting slowly upward. In response to the jet it then suddenly accelerated on a very steep, upward and leftward curving trajectory. IT MOVED LIKE A FLAT STONE SKIPPING OVER THE TOP OF A CALM POND.. It was gone in a second! At that point a second fighter jet flew through the gap in the hills following the first jet. The two jets left black exhaust trails behind them as they chased after it in vain.. In terms of speed the jets seemed like snails by comparison. This entire episode could not have lasted more than 7 seconds. Perhaps even less. After all, I was driving at 60 mph. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
JULY 15, 2012……..WINGHAM NEAR CANTERBURY KENT ENGLAND
On the day of this sighting, Ray was out on one of his regular walks in this remote and relatively flat landscape. There are scant few agricultural buildings and the land is extensive in farming, with wide open spaces. The weather was thick cloud to the West with a small break in the cloud to the south with the sun breaking through to the left of a main coppice of woods.
The woodland recedes abruptly and there is a clear run of vision to the horizon panning from South West to South for about a mile and a half, from which a wind mill marks the start of a new line of trees.
In Ray’s account of his sighting whilst walking his dog, he states the following:
“I noticed something moving that I thought was a flight of geese. It caught my eye because right now, this is not happening around here-it did not fit.”“I kept my eye on it and realiszed that it was going too fast to be birds. Then I realized I was not looking at something a few hundred meters away – this thing passed into a lower density area of a cloud (heavy rain and storm clouds – c/n?) that was maybe 5 miles away, maybe more due to the elevation, I’m not sure… As it did this I saw that it was a solid object – dark grey/black. It was pointed at the front (hence me thinking I was viewing geese from my ground angle) and square like to the back, it had about five sides, like a classic diamond icon.
It was at about 22-25 degrees vertical, and I tracked it with my eye through about 80 degrees horizontal before it passed out of sight behind the trees of a small coppice. I guess it was about 4 or 5 seconds I was watching it for – I was so agog that I couldn’t say anything, my son was with me but playing with the dog, and forget about trying to film it – it was gone! I tried to explain it away, said maybe it was a shadow of something on the clouds, but there was absolutely no way I can think of to explain what I saw, and I have seen most kinds of aircraft in flight (I was obsessed with the things as a kid/lived next to a military and commercial airport…). When I got back to my parents’ house I told my mother what I had seen, she said she’s been seeing weird stuff in the sky all week, she’s even heard them – they make a buzzing/ringing noise apparently. Has anyone else seen anything?”
I met Ray on location and we got the positioning of the sighting photographed and filmed in transit with a live pan shot. It was reviewed that the time was closer to between ten to fifteen seconds, when we replayed the sighting footage and realized that the sighting from beginning to end was longer than the five seconds that Ray recalled, from his realization that he was not observing geese. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Traveling east on Route 33 at roughly 1:45am between Buckhannon and Weston West Virginia, my Wife and I observed what can only be described as three large spheres inside of a rectangle. It hovered about 30-50 feet above one of the hilltops on the left(South) side of the highway. The hilltops through there are about 100-400 feet higher than the highway. We got an excellent view of it for roughly 1-2 minutes. I was driving, so I was only seeing it for a few seconds at a time. I had just looked back at the road and that’s when my wife said “It just disappeared!” When I looked back in the sky where it was, it was ,in fact, gone. I had only taken my eyes off of it for a few seconds to look at the road. When we arrived back at our house in Harrison county at around 2:15am my brother texted me to ask if I had made it home ok. To which I replied yes, but that we had basically seen a UFO. My brother was absolutely floored because he and his wife had just seen the same object but they witnessed it roughly 2 miles to the west on Rt. 33 from where we witnessed it. They passed through that same area 30-45 minutes before we passed through. The object did not appear to move at all when we observed it. If it was moving it was moving at about 2-4 miles per hour. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Famed researcher Raymond Fowler first broke the details of this event of May 20, 1953 in 1973, although it was known to UFO investigator Richard Hall as early as 1964. Fowler stated that his information came from engineer “Fritz Werner,” later identified as Arthur G. Stancil.
Stancil graduated from Ohio University in 1949 and was first employed by Air Material Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio as a mechanical engineer on testing Air Force aircraft engines.
Dr. Eric Wang, who was suspected of leading a reverse engineering team on alien craft, headed the Installations Division within the Office of Special Studies where Arthur worked.
Stancil signed a legal affidavit vouching to the honesty of his testimony, which was released by Ray Fowler in UFO Magazine, April 1976.
He was working for a company that had a government contract at a nuclear site in Nevada. He was summoned by his boss on 5-21-53, and sent on a “secret” assignment.
After being flown to Phoenix, Arizona, he was placed on a bus with blacked out windows, and taken to a point some four hours drive northwest of the city of Phoenix proper. The location was supposedly near the city of Kingman, Arizona.
The bus was full of passengers, none of whom Stancil knew, and would not know, as they were told not to communicate with each other. Arriving at their secret destination, two military light-alls illuminated a surreal scene in the late night, pre-dawn skies of the desert. The engineer was amazed to see a disc-shaped craft embedded into the sand.
Stancil estimated its diameter to be about 30 feet. Military personnel surrounded the aluminum-like craft, which was brought down by either an internal explosion, or was hit by military rockets, Stancil surmised. The wound was easily seen, a gaping hole in its side.
Stancil’s duty was to calculate the speed of the craft, a task he quickly discharged. Afterwards, the tense atmosphere of the group of investigators began to loosen some, and he began to glean details from some of the other personnel assigned to this “off the record” mission. He was told of a small cabin inside the craft, and very small chairs.
He did not get to look into the unknown craft himself. He was taken back when he peeked into a nearby medical tent.
Inside was the small body of a “creature,” about 4 foot tall. He asserts that the alien was wearing a type of skull cap, and a silver suit. The suit seemed to be seamless. Soon the investigation was called to a halt, and the members summoned to leave the area.
Back on the bus, all of the members of the assignment were ordered to sign the “official secrets” act, and were warned not to discuss what they had seen with anyone. Before bringing the crash story to other UFO groups, Fowler did a thorough background check on Stancil, and was satisfied to his authenticity, and personal integrity.
Fowler also was persuaded beyond doubt as to the ability of Stancil to do his job, as he came forward with great knowledge of his field and occupation.
There was additional confirmation to the validity of the Arizona crash. Personnel at Wright Patterson AFB claimed to have been witness to the delivery from a “crash site” in Arizona.
These witnesses claimed to have seen “three small bodies packed in dry ice.” The beings were reported as being about 4 foot tall, with large heads, and brownish skin color.
The time of the delivery perfectly coincided with the events put forth by Stancil. Unfortunately, the military personnel could not make their names public. Fowler maintains that several other witnesses have come forward in the years following the incident, but the lack of other facts, and other testimony leave the case lacking somewhat.
Possibly one day more evidence will be revealed on this alleged UFO crash in the desert of Arizona. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo Friday that the United States intelligence and military apparatus has been monitoring Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as UFOs, engaging in action that current technology cannot explain.
The admission is stunning, as Ratcliffe is the highest level former U.S. official to disclose the possibility that advanced intelligence may exist outside our planetary system. His revelations also come on the heels of a report that will be submitted to Congress on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), anytime between now and June 1. The demand for the report was included in the COVID-19 relief and Omnibus bill, which gave the agencies 180 days to turn over their findings to congress.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” said Ratcliffe to Bartiromo.
“Some of those have been declassified. And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain,” he continued. “Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
It isn’t unexpected to hear more officials speaking out about the phenomenon, as it was just several months ago that the Pentagon released three declassified videos of unidentified shaped Tic-Tok shaped objects traveling at extraordinary speeds that were captured by Navy aircraft cameras with infrared observation capability. Those objects – captured on info-red – sometimes are caught accelerating at incredible speeds with G-forces that no human body can withstand.
Luis “Lue” Elizondo, the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs, told me Sunday that Ratcliff’s statements “further illustrates the reality of what other senior members of our Executive and Legislative Branches are already aware of, in that the UAP/UFO issue is real, relevant, and a national security interest.”
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden sky watching and I had my Nikon P900 camera setup on a tripod. I was watching an area of the sky that was off to the east, and I had been watching this particular part of the sky for about 15 minutes, when all of a sudden an object flew into frame, so I immediately hit the shutter button and captured the unidentified object as it flew up diagonally through that area of sky and disappeared from view. The camera was set to burst mode, so I was able to capture the object in four photographs as it passed by at speed moving very fast across the sky. This object was miles away from my position and I feel very fortunate that I was able to capture it. I looked at the photographs and I could see that the object appeared to be a yellow saucer type craft. I feel that these objects are purposely allowing me to see and capture them in my photographs. I believe this is their way of disclosing their presents to the public. The Photographs were taken at 2:04 PM on the 28th of May 2021 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

At night driving with my dad and saw a UFO in the distance which I assumed at the time could only have been a plane. Within a second it was hovering in front of our car. It must have only been about 10 feet above us and was tilted looking at us in the front seat of the car. As we drove it followed us up the road as if it were flying backwards to observe us. The UFO itself was funnily enough your cliche UFO object. Saucer shaped and no wider than about 5 meters across. It had a chrome surface and blinding lights sequential going around the front of it. I remember saying to my dad ‘Dad dad look look at this oh my God’ and all he was doing was watching the road as the lights were so blinding in his eyes. My dad’s account of it was just blinding lights- so much so that he said he didn’t see the UFO due to being worried we were off the side of the road and into the deep gully . It must’ve followed us up the road for about 20 second before it disappeared (and when I say disappeared, I mean I didn’t see it move, it just all of a sudden wasn’t there). I then saw it flying over the hill adjacent to the road we were on about 200m away. I’ve never had anywhere to report this before and it’s probably no longer useful considering it was 1994. No internet and no mobile phones so working out where to report this was a mystery! I did however note it in my diary and make a sketch (I was 14 at the time), however when I’ve rifled through every page of that diary I can’t find the page at all, it’s just simply disappeared. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was driving home by myself from a friend’s house on the night of April 26th 2012 around 11:00pm. It was a clear night, I had my driver’s seat window down and usually the radio on low volume and had cruise control on 50mph-per usual. I had to drive past the Piedmont Airport in Burlington NC on the stretch of highway I was on to reach the interstate. All and all, a 12 minute ride home. Halfway through my ride home as I was looking out of the windshield and I was on a 2-lane highway with trees running both sides of the road about 20-30 feet off the ditches and trees were (best guess) 100-150 feet in the air. I then noticed something coming into my view to my right over the tree line, almost directly above me towards the top of my windshield. It was dark and big (maybe 100-150 feet wide, couldn’t quite see the top half of the ufo)…and the ufo was slowing spinning clock-wise at a relatively slow speed while moving perpendicular to my car. I noticed a few blinking off-white lights on the ufo equator. It also had a small light underneath and center of the ufo that slightly shined and reflected the bottom of the ufo. Didn’t notice any doors or windows. Was a matt-black color as the light shined dimly on it. It moved to my left at a very slow speed. This all took maybe 6-7 seconds since I first saw the big ufo to me then slowing my car down very quickly while keeping an eye on it the entire time. As my car was almost stopped, still moving some, I opened my driver side door to extend my head out of the frame of the door to see the object better. The second I laid my eyes on it with my head out of my car window. It stopped moving and rotating at the same time and ascended in a blink of an eye onto the sky. This entire experience lasted no more than 10 seconds. This ufo made no sounds, didn’t blow the trees or grass while crossing over the road. No exhaust or sonic boom- moving upwards so fast I can’t even describe it. It didn’t ascend straight up it was more like 75-85 degrees upward. After it exited my view. I was at a stop by then and I looked all around as I walked and leaned against my car to see if anyone was on the road or passing by to maybe stop them, but at the same time my heart was pounding in my chest so I sat there in my car off the road slightly until I calmed down and finished my ride home. I called my friend whose house I was leaving a few moments earlier to tell him. I think he believed me but probably not. I’ve only mentioned this story to maybe 5 people since 2012 and it’s May 27th of 2021 now. My friend reminded me of this story recently so I wanted to explain my story to other people that maybe saw the same thing near the same time that night. I haven’t seen anything since and I have always been 50/50 on this stuff. I would testify my story under oath in a court if I had to. I just wanted to share what I saw. If my sighting had lasted longer or I wasn’t driving at the time I would have pulled my cellphone out of my pocket to record what happened, even if it was a bad result or blurry or too dark. But the entire encounter with the ufo was around 8-10 seconds. I was in awe for about 7 of those seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
