Observed moving east to west, in a dark night sky. A band I work with had just finished performing at a downtown outdoor festival. I was standing behind the stage area, talking with a musician, facing toward Lake Michigan, which was about 4 blocks away. I saw 4 reddish-orange spheres, moving slowly in the night sky, as if in unison, from the lake vicinity toward land, coming our direction. I showed the musician and he was captivated, like me, as we watched. They slowly disappeared behind a tall building. We wondered what we had seen, and then he said, “Look, there’s another.” As another appeared on the horizon, soon there were 2 more. That group of 3 spheres, or orbs, same color, moved the same general direction, quietly, again in unison and moved behind the same tall building until we could not see them. Again the sky was dark and we watched as slowly a group of 5 more appeared, moving the same general direction, slowing, as if in unison. Last, 2 more appeared and did the same thing, always moving slowing, east to west, but disappearing. I got a few photos. I’m very aware of the night sky, and my surroundings and have never seen anything like this; neither had the musician who watched as long as I did, a total time of about 15 minutes. I’ve never have seen anything I’d call a UFO, until this. Info. about witnesses: adult female, college grad, school teacher for 35+ years; adult male, musician/keyboard player, highly respected in the community for many years. We are just casual acquaintances.
At approximately 9:45 pm, I was in my front yard, smoking a cigarette, sort of gazing across the street at my neighbor’s house. After a few moments, my eyes started to wander off to the left (westward) towards the bike path that is provided to us by our municipality. As I started to look that way, I noticed something in the sky. I glanced up and instantly dropped my cigarette. Above the tree line on the bike path, there were two red objects hovering. They glowed a bright red light and seemed to flash and change colors from red to white. After a second or two of standing there, I ran inside to grab my iPhone so I could record this event. I work in television production and have been around drones for a lot of that work. I also fly weekly for my job. I’m in and around planes and airports and have been for the last 12 years. These objects were not drones. They were not planes. I took 2:30 mins of footage before my phone’s battery started to die. It was inside on the charger initially and was only around 5% charged when I took the footage. The two objects hovered for awhile, then one took off and flew away. Far away. They were both pretty large at first. Smaller than a full moon but much larger than a star. The one that flew away though did eventually become small enough that it looked like a star. After a few more seconds, 20 maybe, the one that flew off – which was the one situated on the right hand side – reappeared on the left hand side, lower – again by the tree line and much larger. The two hovered again for about a minute. My phone was dying. I ran back inside to charge it and after a few minutes, I came back outside with my 3 year old son. We recorded another 20 seconds of footage and he – though very young and being a child – was able to identify the object and you can hear his voice call it “the flashing star”. I’m well educated. I work for a Fortune 500 company. I have a child and I’m an excellent father. I’ve been around drones and planes for my work. This was neither. My very first reaction was to run and grab a camera. That wouldn’t have been my reaction if I had ever seen anything like this before. It’s also important to note that Northfield is a very normal and pristine little borough outside of Atlantic City. The area here is quiet and family oriented and filled with decent people. This is not a hoax or a gimmick or some weird thing. I saw two UFO’s. These two objects hovered, flew, flashed bright red and appeared to travel great distances in very short time. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
This case is under investigation by MUFON’s Chief Investigator Ken Pfeifer.
At 16.25 hours on July 11, 1995, a Dash-8 passenger plane from the Wideroe company was on route from Fornebu (Oslo) to Bronnoysund when something very strange happened over Steinkjer about 70 kilmetres north of Trondheim. The co-pilot caught sight of a flying object that moved to the right of the plane. From his left side of the cockpit the captain only saw a part of what happened: – First we thought it was another plane but as I bent down to get a better view, I noticed it had neither wings nor tail-fins, says captain Erik P. Risan. It was fine weather and good visibility. His (anonymous) co-pilot, on the right side of the cockpit, got a better view of the object but does not want to elaborate on the incident: – I have already told the facts to the radar station in Trondheim. If I had wanted this story in the media I would have said so, he said. The Wideroe Dash-8 plane was flying on 15.000 feet. Soon the unknown object slowed down and disappeared. In about a minute it was all over. The crew informed the Vaernes tower that something was in the air. Sometimes a weather balloon goes astray, but the captain does not want to speculate if this might be the explanation in this case. The military radar at Grakallen near Trondheim had coverage of the area but caught no returns from an unknown object. There were no military planes in the area. The object was considered unidentified by the military forces. 11 year old Roy Arne Hallem apparently witnessed the incident from the porch of his home at Inndalen. The boy told his parents on Tuesday evening. The incident was published the next day. – The object was very polished and almost as large as the airplane. I saw it for half-a-minute or a minute before it went straight up at disappeared at great speed, he said. Three hours later the same (or a similar) silvery polished object was spotted by 75 year old Bjarne Lein. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
