Intriguing globe-like sighting comes to us from Chronometer Magazine regarding an incident from Ivanovo in Russia on 1st January 2004. As they had only had a little champagne to celebrate the new year, the main witness, along with two friends, put on their coats and decided to take a quick walk around the streets to soak in the festivities taking place.
However, as they were doing so they noticed a “large orange sphere” that was not only overhead but appeared to be heading toward them. What’s more, it was descending as it did so. The three witnesses stared in fascination and nervousness at the object before one of them suddenly noticed that a strange humanoid figure – that appeared to have a snout in place of a nose – was watching them from several yards away.
Even more bizarre, however, was what happened next. The strange figure, which appeared to be smiling at the group menacingly, suddenly turned around. When it did so, though, it appeared to be completely flat. The witness would later state it appeared as though “it had been run over by an asphalt roller”.
Suddenly, an “invisible wave” hit the man sending him falling to the ground as if he had been physically pushed. He appeared to black out momentarily as the next thing he knew the figure nor the glowing orange sphere were no longer there. Even stranger, while his two friends saw the glowing sphere, they couldn’t recall it disappearing. Nor did they see the strange “flat” humanoid”.
This particular account has many insinuations that these spherical crafts, and perhaps even the occupants are not as real – at least as we might understand the word – as we think they are. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This event remains as one of Europe’s unsolved UFO cases. It began at about 8:30 AM, September 10, 1990, when the first sighting of a spherical, metallic object with legs was made. The object was either moving very slowly, or hovering in the sky at a low altitude.
A group of school children heading to class saw the object first. The youngsters probably imagined they were seeing a strange sort of balloon. Soon, other local residents also spotted the unusual flying object. Some early observers could only liken the object to a ‘turtle with legs.’
The object was reflecting the early morning sun, which caused on-lookers to surmise the object was made of some type of metal. In a short period of time, as many as 25 witnesses were observing the UFO.
Local residents were surprised and even frightened by the sight of the UFO. Some even tried throwing rocks at the object, in an attempt to shoo it away. Soon four pictures would be taken, forever documenting the event for posterity and further study by UFO students.
Manuel Gomes, sitting at a local diner, was soon told of the sightings. He was a photojournalist and worked with the Morning Journal News. He quickly gathered his camera and rushed to the location of the latest reported sighting.
He managed to take four photographs of the object. He was unable to identify the object as anything he had seen before. He turned over his report and photographic negatives to the CNIFO research group, who began an investigation into the events of the day.
After about an hour, the unidentified object finally flew away into the horizon, leaving many questions as to its origin and purpose. As researchers began to discuss the sightings, various theories were offered.
The photographs taken by Gomes were examined and found not to have been tampered with. What was seen in the Alfena skies was exactly what was on his photographs. The big mystery was: what was the object?
Of the many theories offered, the most plausible was that the object was some type of observation device, possibly launched by the military. However, the military claimed to have nothing in the air at that time and location.
The case of the Alfena, Portugal craft remains unsolved to this day.
At around 6 pm on the evening of 24th January 2003, another sighting of a triangular object in the Ontario would unfold. This time in the Kingston region. The witness, who would withhold her name, would speak at length with UFO researcher and investigator, Peter Davenport. He would, incidentally, describe her as an “exceptional witness” and certainly someone with credibility.
At the time of the incident, she was driving in her car along Highway 15. She would recall how it was a particularly cold night with the skies long since darkened. However, with the music from her car’s cassette player filling the vehicle’s interior, she suddenly noticed something out of place in the sky that caught her attention.
She would describe this anomaly as “two, round, white lights” that were “much bigger than any (of the) stars”. And what’s more, the lights were heading toward her. She would quickly scan her immediate surroundings and, realizing hers was the only vehicle on the road, she would bring her speed down to around 15 miles per hour, perhaps a little less.
She brought her attention back to the object which was now significantly closer. The witness would claim the lights now appeared “like big bus headlights in the sky”. It was certainly something that she had not seen before. As she continued to watch the approaching lights, she noticed a third, smaller red light. It would “start on the inside left and blinked its way to the right”. And it would do so repeatedly. This, then, would suggest that the lights were very much attached to a much larger, solid object.
As the object continued to descend – now only several feet above the treetops – the witness would turn her car headlights to full beam. She would state she wished to “get a better look” at the approaching craft. At the same time, she brought the car to a virtual crawl along the lonely highway.
It was at this point that she could clearly see the object was a “black equilateral triangle”. What’s more, at each point of the triangle was a “large white dome light”. This would “glow”, almost in a throbbing way.
The witness would wind the window down in the car door so she could get an unobstructed view of the object. As she did so, she was indeed able to notice the underside of the object more clearly. Perhaps of more significance, though, is the direction the witness reported the object was going – towards the Kingston Mills Locks.
Once more, we have a close proximity UFO sighting which is heading toward a body of water. And what’s more, at least according to some researchers, locks are a particularly interesting place as they often disguise entrances to the inner world. We will come back to this later.
Regarding the object itself, she would recall how it was of a dark grey color, “almost shadow-like”. Perhaps of more intrigue, though, was the detail that attached to the underside of the object was a “very distinct 3-Dimensional black shape”. What’s more, this black shape had “arrow-like points” as opposed to the rounded edges of the main object. She would further describe it as being like “something out of a Star Trek movie”. The witness, though, was also questioning whether she might have stumbled under the flight path of a top-secret military aircraft. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On February 28, the crew of Air Shuttle flight 5959 initiated the reports. While cruising near Cleveland, they saw an unidentified, lighted object flying below them.
The pilot radioed Cleveland Air Traffic Control, and reported what he and his co-pilot were observing, asking the controller if he had anything near that position on his radar. The controller did not.
Shortly thereafter, the pilot of Mesaba Airlines flight 3179, who had been monitoring the radio communications, reported to the tower that he too had seen the UFO.
The UFO initially was reported as flashing white, but soon displayed an array of various colors. Shuttle 5959 also related to the tower controller that the UFO was several thousand feet below his plane, and about 10 miles away.
The only possible explanation that the Cleveland tower could suggest was that the crews were seeing a reflection in the clouds of a
landing beacon. But both planes reported that the light was a distinct source of its own.
The pilot of 5959 decided to drop down below the object. When he did, he could still the spinning, pulsating object above him very
clearly. This proved that the lights were not originating from the ground.
Mesaba 3179 even attempted to make contact with the UFO, by blinking its lights, but there was no response from the unknown object.
Mesaba would also report that one of their passengers had snapped photographs of the UFO, and the Cleveland tower reported that they would like to take a look at them.
What happened to the photographs is a mystery, as well as what the object was that was seen by two aircraft on February 28, 1996.
Below is an excerpt from the transcript of radio communications between Cleveland tower, Air Shuttle 5959, and Masaba 3179.
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Cleveland, this is 5959. We see traffic out there. Ah… twelve to one o’clock. Ah… low altitude. Do you have him on the radar?
Cleveland Control: Air Shuttle 5959, that’s a negative. Sir, I don’t have anything out in front of you at twelve to one o’clock.
Air Shuttle 5959: Ok…
Cleveland Control: He’s down well below you or can you get an estimate on an altitude on him?
Air Shuttle 5959: Well, that could be really difficult. Ah… we’re between layers here. I’m just going to estimate two-three thousand
feet below us. Maybe and ah… sort of ah… pulsating light about, I don’t know, ten miles out.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Air Shuttle 5959. I’ll keep my eyes open. But I don’t see anything.
Masaba 3179: Was that northwest of Detroit did you see that light?
Air Shuttle 5959: Yeah.
Masaba 3179: Yeah, that’s where I saw it. A really bright white light, sometimes flickering… ah… underneath the clouds is where I saw it.
Cleveland Control: Air Shuttle 5959, is that traffic, ah… that you saw earlier? Do you see him out there any longer?
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Shuttle 5959, that’s affirmative and it’s a light that kind of… it goes dim and it gets bright. I don’t know if we’re getting closer to it or what? But it looks like a rotating light around it like ah… like a Frisbee type thing that’s going around it.
Unknown voice: UFO.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, do you see the same thing?
Masaba 3179: Ah… sir, I saw it coming out of Detroit and I wondered… ah… all I saw was just a couple really bright flashes of light and it almost looked like lightning and it caught my eye. And then I kept watching it and then it looked a little bit less bright. But it looked like it was underneath the cloud deck to me. And this was just as we were coming out of Detroit.
Cleveland Control: Ok, and can you get an altitude on it at all?
Masaba 3179: The light that I saw was just like, maybe, I don’t know… twenty-five miles northwest of Detroit. Is it what you’re referring to or you’re talking about the light at our twelve o’clock now about ten miles?
Cleveland Control: Any kind of target off to your twelve o’clock?
Masaba 3179: Ah… we have some kind of white light out there at twelve o’clock and the captain ah… says it’s pulsating. It looks like oncoming traffic. But it’s just sitting about the same place that it’s been the whole… here about ten or fifteen minutes we’ve been watching it.
Air Shuttle 5959: Year, Air Shuttle 5959. It looks like it’s almost over Saginaw from our position.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Air Shuttle 5959. Contact Saginaw Approach Control 126.45. I appreciate the information.
Masaba 3179: 3179, that target looks like it’s ah… below us. I would guesstimate maybe ten thousand feet.
Cleveland Control: Around ten thousand feet, would you think it might be like a reflection? Ah… maybe perhaps off a beacon that for some reason, it’s just one of those weird things. Ah… natural phenomena that you’re getting a reflection, cause I got nothing out there.
Masaba 3179: I don’t know. I mean we can see a clear, you know, relatively solid cloud deck… ah… below us and this is definitely ah… distinct whitish ah… well, now it’s looking a little red and greenish white, sort of pulsating light and it’s constant. It’s not a beacon.
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Cleveland, Air Shuttle 5959.
Cleveland Control: Go ahead, sir.
Air Shuttle 5959: Yeah. Hey, be advised we’re descending to four thousand feet right now and as we descend through ten thousand feet, that object is above us right now. It is not on the ground. It’s about ten thousand feet.
Cleveland Control: Ok, sir. We’re checking on it right now. I don’t have anything out in front of You at all I’m showing. I appreciate you coming back to the frequency and letting me know.
Air Shuttle 5959: I’ll keep you advised. I tell you what that is weird. It keeps sitting there pulsating.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, where is it relative to you right now?
Masaba 3179: Twelve o’clock sir.
Cleveland Control: I’m trying to do a little investigating as to what this might be. If you would keep me advised on this.
Masaba 3179: Ok, sir. I’m going to blink my lights at him and see if I can get a reaction. 3179, was the other guy that saw that light was he headed southeast bound or was he headed to (garbled)?
Cleveland Control: Well, he was inbound to Saginaw and actually when I sent him over to Saginaw, I expected that was going to be the last I heard from him. He came back up on the frequency and advised me that his clearance was down to four thousand and that he said that what he saw, was still up above him and was like a red… he said it was red and green light that was pulsing and like rotating. He said he would keep me advised and give us a report once he got into Saginaw. You don’t have a camera on board, do you?
Masaba 3179: We could probably get one from one of the passengers. You want us to ask?
Cleveland Control: Yeah, that would be kind of interesting to have a couple of pictures. I think… ah… might make our case a little better.
Masaba 3179: Ok, 3179, we got a passenger taking a picture of it right now and ah… we have a flight attendant who says that ah… they might have saw the same thing the other night.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, I copy that. Ah… Masaba 3179, when you flashed your lights, did you get any response?
Masaba 3179: Didn’t appear to, sir.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Masaba 3179, I’m going to send you over to Minneapolis now sir. Is it still on your twelve o’clock?
Masaba 3179: Ah… negative sir. It’s at about our two o’clock now. We ah… made a turn.
Cleveland Control: Ok, so it’s off your right side about two o’clock. I’d sure be interested to see those pictures. Can I ah… get you an address that you might be able to send a copy, if you get a copy of them?
Masaba 3179: Yeah, sure. We can do that and actually we made a right turn and he’s off about ten to eleven o’clock.
Cleveland Control: Ok, so he’s off your left side. Ok.
Masaba 3179: Ok, thirty-two-nine. We’ll see you. I wonder if those pictures will show anything?
Masaba 3179: Air Cleveland, Masaba 3179.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, go ahead.
Masaba 3179: I just want you to know that I took a picture, as captain on the left side. I also took (unrecognizable) of some of the stars above, so the lowest light on those pictures. The only single light at the bottom of the picture should be ah… what you’re looking at. And you might be able to get a position with the sky if you want to go that far.
Cleveland Control: Ok, great. That’s a good idea, I appreciate that.
Masaba 3179: It was an instamatic camera. Good night sir.
Cleveland Control: Good night. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: It was dark outside and I had a real urge to go out and do some sky watching. I really couldn’t wait to see what I could spot in the night sky so I grabbed my Nikon P900 camera and binoculars and went out through the back door into the garden where I sat down in my garden chair and began to scan the night sky for anything out of the ordinary. I was sat for about 15 minutes before I spotted something of interest. There was star like object that was very bright that wasn’t present in that part of the sky the last time I had looked so I turned my full attention towards it and began to watch. I could now see that it was moving and I thought to myself “maybe it’s a satellite” but with that the object just suddenly stopped and hung there in the sky. I knew that satellites couldn’t just stop like that so I ruled that theory out. Looking through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera I zoomed in on the area of the sky where the object was situated and immediately took a photograph. I then decided to get a better look at the object through my binoculars so I put down my Nikon P900 camera and then picked up my binoculars. Looking through my binoculars at the object it looked like it was hexagon shaped at first, but the more I stared at the object the more rounded it became in appearance which I thought was odd. Maybe it was the orientation of the object in the sky that gave that impression of it’s appearance. Then my attention was drawn to the dark black centre part of the object where a light suddenly appeared and then started to move around inside it. The object now looked bizarrely like an eye ball that was looking around the sky. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing and as I continued to watch the object it began to fade away until it was no longer visible in the sky. I was left scratching my head… What had I just witnessed? The photograph was taken on the 8th of March at 6:15 pm at Newton Abbot Devon England. Stay safe my friend all the best John.
KENS NOTE: John Mooner is the Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos. John’s location has been a hot spot for many years. We are still trying to figure out why.
I am a 69 yeard old male. What I am about to describe happened to me when I was 16 years old. I have kept this event to myself my entire life as I believed no one would truly believe me. As I enter the winter of my life I wish to leave my story and perhaps it will help serious investigators with the UFO phenomenon.
I spent nearly all of my summers at a friend’s family cottage bordering Echo Lake, in Chepachet, Rhode Island. This is located in Northwest Rhode Island bordering Putnam, Conn. One early morning in July of 1966 I was up at sunrise and decided to go fishing at the end of our fishing dock which is approximately 20 feet over the water. It was a beautiful sunny morning, I was dangling my feet in the water and paying attention to my line when a dark shadow caught my attention. Turning to face the east I thought at first it was a storm coming in over the water when I noticed this gigantic disk coming toward me from the edge of the lake which I suppose was about 2 miles away from me. It had two rows of very large elongated dark windows in the center and descended slightly above the lake. It was no more than 50 feet in front of me when it turned west just above the pines and headed out. I heard several sirens coming from nearby Route 44. There were about 4 vehicles racing, police, sheriff, fire trucks following this object. For someone with investigative experience, I’m sure you could get their records. If someone from Mufon would contact me I can give significantly more detailed information. Date of event July 4, 1966. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is under investigation by State Director Ken Pfeifer of MUFON Rhode Island.
Thought I heard someone talking outside? I stepped outside my shop and saw no one. I did notice a stationary very bright light due West of my home that was brighter and bigger than any object I had ever seen in the night sky. I am about 2 miles inland from the Oregon coast and I have a Florence address but my residence is actually in Dunes City. I am a long term private pilot and have done considerable night flying. This object was extremely bright and VERY large. As I watched the Moon continued it’s track to the west but the object seemed to be in geosynchronous orbit and stayed in the same position. I used my Kyocera cell to take still pictures. I took several that were free-standing and blurred so I leaned against my shop and got 4 more that turned out pretty good. It was cold and I had no coat, so I just came in. I looked out in a few minutes and it was gone. The next day I opened the pictures on my computer and enlarged the photo and found out the anomaly was a ring! I would describe the object as a dimensional portal or jump gate?
At around 11:15 am on 17th June 1977, Jose Francisco Rodrigues was speeding down the runway of Tancos Airbase in a Portuguese Air Force aircraft – a Dornier 27 – ready to embark a routine flight. The 23-year-old was already an experienced pilot, with over 800 flying hours of flight behind him. He was soon leaving the ground and heading into the cloudy, grey, skies overhead, which looked likely to disperse their soaking load at any time.
Around 45 minutes later, he was approaching the Castelo de Bode Dam, a hydroelectric facility, which could perhaps be of key importance as to the events that would unfold next.
Castelo de Bode Dam
As the pilot scanned his surroundings, he would suddenly notice a dark object coming out of a bank of clouds slightly ahead of him. He at first believed the object to be another plane so he changed his course before radioing to base for confirmation of other aircraft in the area. However, rather than confirm the other “plane”, the base claimed to have nothing out of the ordinary of their radar screens. And more to the point, no other aircraft apart his Dornier plane.
He decided to turn his plane once more so that he could examine the object further if indeed it was even there. However, when the control tower heard Rodrigues cry out in alarm as if something had surprised him, it was evident to all that something out of the ordinary was taking place.
There, directly in front of the young pilot’s plane, was a dark, round object, unlike any aerial vehicle Rodrigues had ever seen.
Disappeared In An Instant “From A Stationary Position!”
Knowing he was not looking at a plane but not knowing exactly what the strange craft was, Rodrigues would take in as much detail as possible. He would later state that the upper part of the object was black, although part of it was obscured by the clouds. Meanwhile, the lower part was made of several different panels.
It remained where it was “no more than 6 meters away” from his plane before suddenly vanishing into the distance at fantastic speed. And what’s more, and something not at all lost on the pilot at the time, it did so “from a stationary position”.
Impression of pilot’s view of UFO
It was at this point the pilot’s plane began to suddenly vibrate greatly while the compass began to spin aimlessly. Within seconds, despite his engine working, the plane went into a freefall nosedive, the treetops near the dam wall suddenly rushing up to meet him.
He would ultimately open his throttle and just as he was “almost touching the treetops” he regained control of the plane. Furthermore, he would manage to land the plane back at the base. After undergoing a medical evaluation (which he would pass with no problems) he would report the incident to his superiors. It was noted, however, how distressed he was due to the experience. An experience who both the doctors and his superiors accepted must be something a lot more than “just engine trouble”.
Corroborative Witnesses And Further Strange Events
In fact, the Portuguese Air Force would investigate the case thoroughly, and would ultimately cooperate with “independent” UFO investigators.
There were also two witnesses, who would corroborate Rodrigues’s version of events. At least as far as the loss of control of his plane. Two shepherds happened to notice his Dornier suddenly take the nosedive just over the dam. They would also witness the plane suddenly level out thanks to the pilot’s quick thinking.
They would even offer that they heard a loud noise before the plane came out of its “falling leaf” like descent. Both the description of the fall and the loud noise would match the nosedive and the opening of the throttle to regain control of the plane.
What’s more, at the actual dam facility itself, although they were unaware of Rodrigues or the bizarre object he had witnessed, at the same time he began to experience plane trouble, they would notice a sudden drop in pressure and energy. As if everything was suddenly being drained. The incident would last only a few seconds. Most likely for as long as the nosedive of the plane. It would, however, cause great concern to those working at the facility at the time.
Might it be a case of coincidence? It surely would, though, take the most skeptical mind to dismiss entirely the likeliness that a genuine connection exists between the two strange incidents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At 2:58 a.m. on Jan. 12th, 2004, 21 year old student Susan T. (name and phone number on file, deleted for this report) and her neighbor Jeff F. were in Susan’s driveway when they spotted an object high in the sky. Susan states that the object was hard to describe but said it was disc shaped with a “hump” on top. Susan said that at one point the object stopped and began to “drop.” She thought it was going to hit the ground. However, it suddenly stopped and hovered and then it began to drop again. For several minutes this object “stopped and dropped.” She finally lost sight of it as it went below roof top level of her house.
Susan went on say that this object must have been “covered in a million lights” and also said there was a red rotating light on the top of the hump and white lights on what she described as the belly or bottom of the object. She claims that the object seemed to turn on its side so that she could see the bottom part. This turning or flipping caused the object to look like it was changing shapes and getting bigger. It was when the object turned up that the “bottom” was covered in white lights that dimmed then grew brighter and changed patterns.
Susan said that the object was — from her perspective-larger then your thumb at arms length. She does not know how far away it was but said it may have been over as far as State Route 222. (There are several streets between there; Lumsford and Eiler Lanes.) She said the object may have been in the vicinity of the Phantom Fireworks Factory on Route 125, somewhat to the west of her location.
Susan explained that she felt she was being watched and grew very frightened. Both she and her neighbor (Jeff F.) sat in the truck and watched this object for over an hour. It was 4:15 a.m. when it finally slowly went down behind her house.
Susan then stated that something very strange happened. Right after the object went behind her house she saw what appeared to be a “shadow” on her roof that turned into a ball and rolled down the roof. She said that her neighbor also saw the shadow.
Being very frightened neither person went behind the house to see where the object went. Susan feels that it did land or almost land. She also said that they did not see the object leave because she ran in into house after it went below the roof level and did not look anymore.
I asked if there was any adverse reactions by the animals in the area when the object was in view and Susan said that dogs on the other streets were going wild when the object came down close to the ground.
The second witness was then contacted for his comments on the report. Jeff F., a 45-year old disabled resident of Amelia, states that at 2:58 a.m. on Jan 12th, 2004, he and Susan were sitting in his truck in her driveway when they spotted the object hovering up over behind Susan’s house.
The object was up very high. They watched as this object began to drop very fast. It then stopped and hovered and then dropped again. This all happened very quickly. Jeff F. states that he looked away for a second and the light was back up in the sky in the same spot where they first saw it.
It dropped and stopped again. This happened two times. Jeff F. says he does not know how big the object was but it had a slowly rotating red light on top.
I asked if there were other lights and Jeff said that he did not see any other lights nor could he tell the shape. He said they watched this object for an hour while they sat in his truck.
Jeff said this object eventually began to descend behind Susan’s house. Just as it went out of view a very weird thing happened. Jeff F. said that a “light tannish brown shadow that turned into a ball about the size of a cantaloupe” rolled down Susan’s roof.
“This happened so fast it was unbelievable,” he said.
When this happened both became frightened and Susan ran in the house.
Both parties told me that there was a garbage truck coming down the street at the time the object was in view but they do not think the garbage man saw the UFO.
Jeff F. and Susan’s stories differ in some aspects. Both witnesses sounded sincere in their claims. Susan still sounds upset about what she saw and expressed to me that she has received little sleep since her sighting. I find the incident with the “shadow” very curious.
Both people expressed to me that it was “something” other then just a shadow, but “shadow” was the only word they could find to describe it. It seems that this “shadow” upset both witnesses the most because the object was too far away to cast any reflection on the roof.`
Susan is a 21 year old student at the University of Cincinnati. She is out of school for the winter but will be back in school for the spring term. She is taking courses (30-hours per week) to be become an RN.
45-year old Jeff F. is now disabled but was formerly employed as an industrial engineer.
Susan informed me that she sometimes has trouble sleeping and she and Jeff F. will sit in his truck to talk so as not to wake her family. That night they had spotted the UFO.
Susan says the object was in the western skies when she first saw it. She says she does not know or could comment on how high the object was, saying she is not very good at judging distances. Jeff also said he could not guess on how high up this object was in darkness.
Through various telephone inquires of neighboring residents in the area contact was made with one other possible witness.
A resident from a few blocks away (Eiler Rd) spoke with me by phone (name and phone number on file, withheld from this report) and said that around 3:30 a.m. on Monday morning, January 12, she looked out her window towards the West and saw a bright light in the vicinity of State Route 222.
She did not know how high this object was but said it was a very big bright light above the trees. She said that from her perspective, the object was in a westerly direction toward the lake (East Fork). She could not give a clear estimate of elevation but claimed to have watched this object for a couple of minutes.
After it allegedly disappeared she went back to bed.
The time and date of the claimed sighting, plus general location of the alleged object, matches detail furnished by the first two witnesses from Yelton St.
I contacted the Clermont County Sheriff’s Dept. at XXX-732-2231. No UFO sightings were reported to them during this time frame.
Next, I contacted the Bethel Police Dept. at 513-734-2256. No UFO sightings were reported during this time to them.
Additionally, researcher Kenny young placed a call to the Clermont Sun Newspaper “465 E. Main St., Batavia, Ohio, XXX-732-2511.” He spoke with the editor, Art Hunter. He was told they had not heard of any UFO sightings.
Next, Young contacted the office at East Fork Lake State Park XXX-734-4323. The telephone receptionist, Sandy, said she was completely unfamiliar with UFO sightings around the East Fork State Park vicinity.
She did inquire about the witnesses. She explained that she would pass the information along to the supervisor, others in the office and the park rangers who patrol the lake at night.
She took Young’s telephone number and e-mail address and attached them to her report. Young said if anyone had information about this story to feel free to contact him. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I was sky watching and it was quite cold out I had been outside for about 30 minutes when I spotted a slow moving object that was at a very high altitude in the sky. I could see that it was something unusual because of the way it was slowly moving back and forth around the same area of sky before it finally stopped and just hung there motionless in the sky. I was intrigued and I wondered what it could be so I looked through my binoculars at the object. Right away I could see that the object was round and it consisted of an inner and outer circle. The centred inner circle part was filled with a dull purple colour while the outer circle part seemed to be metallic in nature. This round craft was all to familiar to me as I have photographed it many time before over the years while sky watching. I was very excited to see it again so I immediately put down my binoculars and picked up my Nikon P900 camera so I could capture this object in a photograph once again. I zoomed in on the area of sky where the object was stationary and then centred it as best as I could in the camera viewfinder before I took a photograph of it. The object must of hung there in the sky for about three minutes before it then shot off at incredible speed heading into a thick bank of clouds where I lost sight of it. I went back inside to look at the photograph of the object and I Inserted the SD card directly into the card reader on the front of my computer and looked at the photograph on my 4k TV.
I could see the round object in the photograph but the photograph was hazy and slightly blurred so I opened up my focus photo editor app and de-hazed and sharpened the image before I made a few more enhancements to the photograph. Now that the image was much clearer I could now see that there was in fact an alien being that was looking out from the inside of the purple coloured centred part of the craft. The alien appears to be bold with an elongated head furthermore the alien is holding it’s arm up and it’s hand and fingers are visible in the image. It appears to have six fingers which I found to be very odd but interesting nevertheless. I believe that this photograph is proof of alien visitation in the skies above Devon. The Photograph was taken at 11:30 AM on the 18th of February 2020, at Newton Abbot Devon England.

For example, on 30th November near Caselle Airport in Turin in Italy, pilot, Riccardo Marano was preparing to land his Piper Navajo plane when he noticed a “luminous multicolored ball of light” hovering over the runway. He would note who the strange object was “changing from violet to blue to dark red”.
Marano would bring his plane in a little closer. As he neared the craft, however, it would move suddenly and take off “in a most irregular fashion”. It would make movements that the witness had “seen no plane do”, including “sudden vast jumps to and fro”. Even more bizarre to Marano was that his calculations would suggest the object was traveling around 900 miles per hour.
Further to Marano’s sighting, a corroborative report would come from Colonel Rustichelli from the Caselle military facility. He would confirm that he had viewed the anomaly on the base’s radar screen. Another witness, Commander Tranquillo who was piloting an Alitalia Air Line DC-9 on its way to Rome. He would claim that what it was definitely “solid” and “lit up like a plane on my radar”. Visually, the pilot could see “a shining thing giving out intermittent flashes of light”.
Yet another pilot who was coming into land, Commander Mezzalami, would state that he saw “something very strange indeed”. Although he didn’t wish to guess as to what it might have been.
Four days later, the strange objects were seemingly back over Turin.
An Object “Clearly Visible” To “Thousands Of People!”
According to a story that appeared in the Washington Post, as the night took control of the skies over Turin on 4th December, “thousands of people” would witness a huge object simply hovering overhead. And once more, like the sighting four nights earlier, corroborative radar sightings would come from the nearby military facility. As well as further sightings by members of the local police department.
Furthermore, the incidents over Turin that we have highlighted here are but a small number of the mini-wave of sightings over the north Italy region at the time.
The object was “clearly visible to the naked eye”. And hovered overhead for several minutes in full view for anyone who cared to look skyward. So seriously did the local police treat the incident that they would dispatch no less than six patrol units to investigate the reports.
They would arrive “at a spot more or less underneath the object”. Before they could investigate further, though, the mysterious craft “shot upwards at great speed and disappeared” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
The mobile home of James Richards sat on the absolute outskirts of the city of Columbia in the state of Missouri. Not only that, but the home itself was at the end of dead-end footpath around 1000 feet from the nearest main road. All around this quiet and extremely humble abode were “scattered trees” aside from a small front yard. To say that Richards and his 16-year-old daughter, Vanea, as well as Jamie, her 3-year-old son were cut off from the vast majority of the community was an understatement.
Incidentally, the nearest property to Mr. Richards’ mobile home was a small house, lived in by an elderly lady. She was, however, “asleep at the time of the observation”.
On this particular evening, at a little past midnight on 28th June 1973, Vanea was making her way to the north side of the mobile home, to the fridge so that she could place a baby bottle there. Although there was music filling the home from the record player which was spinning the vinyl disc around and around on its turntable, the open window allowed the sudden noise from outside to be heard easily.
Vanea would later describe the noise as a “thrashing” sound and it appeared to emanate from the trees around the side of the mobile home. The more she listened, now all but blocking out the record player, she could make out what appeared to be the sound of something “moving a large tree” outside.
She would remain where she was for a few more moments, listening intently to the mysterious and unnerving activity taking place outside. Then, as loudly as she could without alerting whoever, or whatever was outside, she would call out to her father.
Two Bright, Silver-White Beams Appear Out Of Nowhere!
Richards could hear his daughter call from the kitchen area of the mobile home as he sat in the living room with Jamie. Because of the hour and the fact that he himself was feeling sluggish and tired, he was rather slow in getting in out of the living room chair and up to the window where Vanea was calling him from.
By the time he had arrived at where his daughter was, she was moving with great pace from the outside screen door to the front door, locking both of them as quickly as she could. He would make his way to the kitchen window, now with a little more urgency than before. His daughter joined him a moment or two later, now satisfied that the doors were as secure as they could be.
As they both stared out into the darkness of the summer’s night, “two beams of light” suddenly became visible. They appeared to be between the trees and the nearby fence. Richards would guess they were approximately 50 feet from the kitchen window they were viewing them from and had a “tapered” look to them, with the wider section at the top.
He would further estimate the beams were around five feet apart, and remained this distance., suggesting they emanated from the same solid source overhead. Furthermore, they had a “bright, silver-white” color to them. However, try as he did, he could see no solid form “above or behind the beams”.
Then, they just disappeared as suddenly as they had appeared. It was then that both Richards and his daughter could see the “bright oval form” in their place.
The Woodland “Lit Up As Bright As Day!”
The father and daughter remained where they were at the kitchen window, both fascinated and alarmed at the scene and scenario unfolding before them.
They would later estimate that the “glowing form” was around 15 feet across and appeared to be only mere feet from the ground. So bright was the object that the pair had difficulty in keeping their sight on it, with Richards even having to look away at one point. Such was the brightness, that other than the silver glow, no other details of the exterior could be seen. Furthermore, because of this brightness, the area immediately outside the mobile home was “lit up bright as day”.
In this artificial daylight, the pair could see the trees moving as if a sudden strong wind had come out of nowhere unleashing its carnage on the area. However, more than that, it appeared that some trees were being manipulated in different ways than others, with Vanea even witnessing one tree being pulled toward the ground.
All the while, however, the only sound that reached them was that which initially caught Vanea’s attention, the strange thrashing noise. No other sounds or noises whatsoever came from the active scene outside, which must have given the scene an even more surreal feel.
Then, the thrashing sound stopped, although the trees continued to move. A moment later, a loud “cracking” sound rang out quickly followed by the bizarre movement of the trees also stopping. Although they didn’t know it at the time, or at least were not certain of it, investigation of the area the following day would show a large, heavy branch had been snapped off at a height of almost 20 feet.
A “Real Bright” Center With Duller, Fuzzy Edges!
Following this burst of activity, a deafening silence would suddenly envelop the mobile home, even seeming to leak into the building itself making the father and daughter feel more than uneasy. It was during these unsettling moments that Richards realized their dogs – who would normally bark at anything that moved outside the house – were completely still and silent. As he went from window to window of the mobile home surveying the area outside, he noticed them almost hiding away from whatever had been taking place only moments ago.
It was then that he went to his bedroom to retrieve his guns. He quickly returned into the kitchen area, the weapons and ammunition in his arms. He would load the guns and then place them on top of the freezer unit and out of the reach of anyone other than he and his daughter.
When he returned to the kitchen window where his daughter remained, watching the scene outside, he could see that the glowing craft remained hovering at a distance of around 50 feet from their home, although the brightness lit up a radius of around double that.
Although they could still make out no real detail of the craft other than it was oval-shaped and a “silver-white or aluminum” color, Richards would recall that the middle of it was “real, real bright” while the edges were decidedly duller. Vanea, similarly, would recall that edges of the object were somewhat “fuzzy”.
The pair remained at the kitchen window, nervous about what might happen next but not wishing to take their eyes from the situation for even a moment. After several more moments, however, Richards made the decision it was time to call for help.
Contact “The Police, The FBI” Or Anyone Who Can Help Me!
Whether by coincidence or not, almost in sympathy with his actions the object suddenly moved and changed its position. It would now take up temporary residence in the sky over a nearby field, approximately 200 feet from the mobile home.
Because there was not more distance between the craft and their location, the pair could now make out a lot more detail than they could previously. For example, the craft was a bright silver-white in the middle while at the edge was a “blue band of light”. Furthermore, an “orange glow extended around the outer edge”.
Richards and his daughter watched the craft return to its original position, describing the movement of it as “smooth and slow”. Shortly after this, he would reach for the phone and dial 113 for directory assistance.
The lady who took the call – identified as “Mrs. AB” would claim that Richards was “very excited and seemed to be frightened” although he was clear in describing the event. He would also request that she contact “the police, the FBI, or anyone who could help him!”
She would manage to calm him somewhat and assure him that she would contact an operator who would call him back. Several moments later, a “Mrs. P” called back and spoke with Richards for several minutes. During this exchange, the lights in the mobile home dimmed several times. This, of course, is a detail that often surfaces in close encounter experiences. Usually, however, these types of encounters occur while people are in their vehicles and experience their car’s cutting out without warning.
On Mrs. P’s instructions, he would hang the phone up, return to the window, and await the return call.
An Obviously Frightened But Sincere Witness!
While this was taking place, Mrs. P would contact Mrs. L, who would in turn attempt to call Richards. However, when she did, she would hear nothing other than a “deadline”. She would try the number five times, even calling Mrs. P back in between to check that the number she had was correct.
During this time, Richards himself began to worry that no one had contacted him back. So much so, that he picked up the receiver. Bizarrely, and adding even more to the strangeness of the situation, after the line appeared dead, he suddenly heard Mrs. M.
He would then relay the evening’s happenings to the operator, stating at this stage that he was decidedly frightened for his children.
For her part, Mrs. M would recall that Richards would repeat his story again and again. He would occasionally pause and shout out to his daughter, asking if the strange object was still outside.
Before long, Richards was transferred to Mrs. S at the Flight Service Station at Columbia Regional Airport.
Mrs. S would ultimately assure Richards that she would contact the police and report the sighting for him. She would also inform him that she had knowledge of another sighting on the 24th June – only two weeks earlier – we will examine that incident later.
Shortly after the exchange, the pair would hang up.
A moment or two later, the object began to approach the mobile home once again.
A Last Visual Stand-Off!
Richards and Vanea watched the object approach, watching with a rising sense of fear intoxicating each of them. Richards would later describe a “cold feeling” overtaking him and the feeling of something imminent and dire about to take place. He would state that he “just froze” and had no idea what to do.
Even more, the distinct feeling that he, his daughter, and grandson were on their own in their out-of-the-way mobile home wouldn’t leave him. Nor would the insistence that all three of them would not for any reason step outside.
As each of them remained at the window the object moved again, seemingly negotiating the trees as it did so. It would eventually settle into a position around 50 feet from their location. Both Richards and his daughter all the while remained where they were at the window, watching the strange, hovering, glowing object not daring to take their eyes from it.
This visual stand-off continued for several minutes (although neither witness was completely sure just how long this was for). Then, the craft went into motion yet again. Once more, it went through the trees with a “smooth, slow motion”, although Richards recalls that during this particular burst of movement, the surrounding trees appeared undisturbed.
The craft once more would stop at a distance of around 200 feet from the Richards’ mobile home. As before, from this distance, the blue-orange glow of the outer edges of the vehicle were visible while the solid silver glow of the center section was now more defined. The object then appeared to fade away, although not into the distance (no trees appeared disturbed, for example) but as though it was literally fading from view.
Within several minutes, the object was no longer visible.
A Wealth Of Outlandish Possibilities That Must Be Considered!
This last detail is of interest to UFO researchers as there appears to be many cases where what appears to be a solid craft disappears. However, not shooting off into the distance at great speed but by seemingly fading away from existence, as if someone turned down a dimmer switch or flicked off a light bulb.

I was on my phone watching the NASA’s spacewalk 63 aboard the ISS aired in real time yesterday on the 20th of January 2020, around 6 hours and 30 mins into the space walk the last astronaught was preparing to enter back into the air lock for depressurisation and re-entry into the interior of the ISS. The two female astronaughts involved in the spacewalk included Christina Koch and Jessica (can’t remember the surname). I was watching Jessica on her way to the air lock impressed with the quality of the camera being used filming the final moments of the spacewalk on the exterior of the ISS, and then I noticed something strange on the screen. In total for the time I viewed the UFO on screen it stood perfectly still for about three seconds before shooting off which took about 0.5 seconds. Honestly I briefly thought it was an insect given it’s appearance as a tilted letter T, assuming that the shaft of the T was the body and the extremeties either side (longer than the shaft of the t like shape) were perhaps it’s wings. I then looked to see if it was attached to the ISS in any way hoping that perhaps a beam of light might reflect of a wire demonstrating that this T shaped object was connected to the exterior of the ISS. Whilst doing so I had a sudden realisation that it wasn’t attached at all and that it was perhaps a UFO. I decided to quickly screenshot it and upon doing so it zoomed of SO fast it was like, god I don’t know it was gone and shrunk to a point of infinity in less than the space of a second. It did not gradually accelerate it just instantaneously shot off into the distance exactly following the direction the camera was facing until it could no longer be seen. The video feed in use soon after changed to a different camera aboard the station. The photo I will attach of the ufo was about 80% during its shooting off phase, it was originally about 5 times closer and larger looking due to its close proximity. You can see that isn’t just some glitch in the camera lense as the sun light hitting the object is on the same side as the sun light hitting the ISS.
ENORMOUS UFO TRIANGLE SPOTTED IN NEW JERSEY, ILLINOIS AND TEXAS
OCTOBER 7, 2014 …………. MONROE TOWNSHIP NEW JERSEY
It was approximately 12:35 pm on October the 7th when I was watching television and I had an immense urge to get up and go outside based on a force that was indescribable if there were a similar word to an intuitive brain response then that would be so. As I exited the 1st floor balcony door from the SW was a similar shape as a plane being downed in the scale of 2 747 back to back from about a 1/4 miles out with immense 2 beady bright star lighted beams of light that would throw most peoples senses off. However, I was well aware there were no airports in the close proximity and the size at the time of the aircraft was to immense. In complete and utter interest I was forced to stay in the exact spot on the balcony as this ship had gotten closer to my direct line of view. It was slightly hard to make out what I was at 1st viewing as it looked like a plane in distress from the angle it flew at 30 degrees. Within what seems like a minute closely between the proximity of the highest of tree lines to 750 came a cloaked like a cloud based triangle hoover craft in the dimensions of about 75 yards hovering by at 15mph over the tree line. The craft had a cylindrical orangey but different cylinder in the middle with no jet turbine. By all means the technology was extremely advanced to hold such as ship in it’s entirety in the air without hovering or jets. In this area these UFO are commonly spotted for quite some time never down so low. It was unearthly but the patterns of the lights as it got closer were much more intricate! For further detail as the metallic looking pattern of symmetry I am available for e-mail. This was a 100 percent identified to the most keenest of my abilities! NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
This above case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer Chief Investigator for MUFON in New Jersey
Two other sightings were reported that day to www.nuforc.org see below….
Occurred : 10/7/2014 21:44 (Entered as : 10/07/14 21:44)Reported: 10/11/2014 3:35:51 PM 15:35
Location: Gary (headed towards Chicago, Illinois), IN
My husband and I drive a truck across country. We were driving when he caught my attention and asked what “it” was.At first I thought it was nothing then it was just hovering there and I took pictures. It was three oval shaped crafts flying in a perfect triangle.And above them was a flat bottomed something. I’m not sure what it was. Traffic backed up to look at it though.
We witnessed a triangular shaped object with a light at each corner, stop and fly silently during a blackout.At 23:05 our lights flickered, grew brighter and went out for about 2-3 minutes then came back on the mid-east side of town. I went outside, saw nothing unusual but after about 5 min., heard sirens for several minutes. I stood on the porch with my grandaughter for a few minutes more then returned to my bedroom.At 23:40 our electricity turned off again with no flickering or warning. We went outside again and neighbors from two other houses were also outside. I called the local police department to ask about the electricity situation and they explained that there had been a large accident on Taylor Street that had taken out several telephone poles and electric lines and that Oncor was working to fix it. I wondered why we had not heard anything with Taylor Street being four blocks away but did not think much else about it.The neighbors and I were in the middle of the street talking and I told them that it would be back on once Oncor fixed the poles.The neighbors from one house went back inside. The neighbors from the corner and I stayed outside talking. I told them I could see better outside than in my house because the moon is so bright tonight. She looked up and said, “Oh my God!! It stopped in the air”.I looked behind me, to the North and saw what at first I thought might be a plane, but very low and it was just stopped in mid air. It started to move slowly and made no noise. It appeared to be either triangular shaped or at least the lights were.There were 3 lights in a triangular pattern. One was white, one was red and the other flashed from blue to green. It flew over us and to the South going very slow and never made a sound.After it passed over all the electricity came back on. We all just stared. Her husband said “I think it is a plane”. She said, it made no noise and was a triangle and just stopped in the air!, planes don’t do that”. I said I saw it stopped also. And we just all went in the house.
Mrs. Pat Norris, 28, lives with her husband, Carl, and three children in a suburb of Mobile, Alabama. On the evening of February 3, 1983, she had visited a friend in Mobile and when the friend’s husband arrived from work, Mrs. Norris left and headed home on Highway 90. She had turned off the Highway and when about 90 minutes’ ride from her home she heard an explosion. At this point, her car began to vibrate and continued to do so, making it difficult for her to steer. She negotiated another turn off the road she was on, brought the car to a halt, opened the car door and leaned out and down and looked to ascertain if the transmission could have been causing the trouble. It had not. Mrs. N. continued driving and the vibrating stopped. She executed another turn onto another road and saw that the woods ahead were brilliantly illuminated. At first she thought that there was a helicopter search in progress because of the lights and was very frightened. She again stopped the car, and at this point sighted a huge object about l/2 mile west of her. She now feels the explosion she had heard earlier was the object coming down over a clay and gravel pit in the vicinity.
The thing was huge — later estimated to be 7 to 8 stories (70 to 80 feet) high and “six telephone poles” (210 feet) wide, and appeared to be moving toward her at 4-5 miles per hour. The evening had been clear and cool and she had driven with the car windows closed. After the explosion, she noted a “chopping wind, a high-pitched sound and a roaring sound” as well as the vibration. She particularly noted the “whipping of the wind — like a tornado.” When the object reached a point fairly close it stopped and all of the noise stopped. It was completely silent and Mrs. Norris lost all of the fear she had felt before. She then got out of the car to get a better look. She strained to take in every detail — feeling like a child with “unbelievable happiness.” Mr. Norris said that although Pat told him of her sighting after it happened, he didn’t realize how important it was to her until she started checking books out of the local library pertaining to UFOs and “related subjects.” She estimates the time duration of the sighting as five minutes. As the craft appeared Mrs. Norris’ attention was drawn to a top deck with a long window which she estimates 53 feet and through which she viewed 20 to 30 persons, apparently oblivious of her presence, walking about as if they were changing shift. The wall behind them was curved and white. There were no instruments. The people did not give the appearance of looking out. The beings were pale skinned, dressed in white one piece suits. She judged them to be about our height, five feet 10″, quite slender but with chests larger than ours, the top of the head more prominent, no hair, and having the lower half only of ears similar to our own. She noted nothing out of the ordinary about the eyes. What did draw her attention was the great grace of their movements. The atmosphere seemed “sterile.” Below this top deck window was an opaque window. The area around it was all white. This window was in sections and was inset. The glass was tinted. Below the center of the craft a door was closing from right to left. (See drawing). And she looked onto a street that was dark as if made of asphalt or possible concrete. Off to the side of this street was tubular rectangular equipment. All across the craft she saw rivets and portholes. She said she could see the portholes “inside out” as she peered into the craft. She saw some construction that included “huge I beams like they put ships together with and beams holding the glass in there.” The bottom side was tiered upwards. The construction reminds her of a ship or submarine. She said it seemed possible, very likely, it could have been constructed here on Earth. The very bottom of the craft was formed into a cross made with one foot square mirrors and an observation deck hung down and around the bottom with beings in it. In this case, unlike the top deck, the people were peering out, while overhead she heard a very low pitched but clearly audible (almost like a growl) “announcing” coming from the area of the observation deck now closest to her.
Mrs. Norris said she believes they didn’t realize she was there until directly over her position. As drawn, she saw four pipes projecting six to eight feet out from the craft set in three or four foot square boxes. They had a hollow flange on the end like a tank cannon and she believes “it looked like a weapon.” The craft took a southerly turn as it went on from where she was parked. She said it was staying in the wooded area and did not cross Highway 90 again. Possible it was doubling back towards Irvington and Pascagoula. It lit up the wooded area, and all beneath it as it moved on off. It had white spotlights and to the side blue and red lights that intermingled, pointing up to the clouds and then down to Earth. She told Mr. Brown she had prayed she might have such a sighting. She had extensive dream material both prior to and after the February 4 incident. The late dreams contain a detailed physical examination and scan of her emotions, which we expect to present later, when prepared. After the object was out of sight, Pat continued on home, arriving at 1:10 a.m. NOTE: The above images are renderings
I was driving east on I-12 when I noticed a small airplane making a very sharp turn at low altitude. When I looked for the plane a second time, I noticed a chrome object in the sky stationary about 1,000 ft. above the next interstate exit. As I got closer the object had lowered a chrome tether about 300 ft. long. The object had a small orb moving around the larger object. The larger object with the tether was not moving. I stopped at the exit and observed the object still about 800 to 1000 ft. above me. After about 5 minutes the object retracked the chrome tether and slowly moved to the east, then the object increased speed and was out of sight in less than 1 second. This took place at 4:00 PM, the skies clear on January 24th, 2015. I called the national Weather service in Slidell, just 15 miles from the sighting to see if they were doing anything that might explain what I saw. I also contacted local airports to see if any pilots reported a sighting, and also called the New Orleans International Airport to see if they could validate the sighting on radar. The FAA has not returned my call as of 1/28/2015. I understand the principals of lift and airfoils. This was not a plane or a weather balloon. It defied gravity without wings or noise from engines. I have tried my best to explain this but so far it remains a UFO! NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
Between the hours of 5:00 a.m. And 5:15 a.m.on January 27, 2015. I was working doing my rural paper route in Silerton TN. As I stopped at a stop sign I heard what sounded like a helicopter. This is not unusual. As things get pretty boring on my route I tend to notice things out of the ordinary. I sat for a about two mins awaiting the helicopter as the sounds grew closer. I couldn’t find them in the sky so I continued on my route. About 4 miles I traveled when I caught sight of the helicopter over the tree line. I sped up around the corner to see if maybe an accident had happened I initially thought this was a medical helicopter. As I rounded the corner. I could see three obvious military helicopters. I am not an expert on aircraft nor have I served in the military. We have a national guard armory in town so I am well versed in the site of military craft. I figured that’s all it was. So I continued working. At approximately 6:15 a.m. I came to a wide open 3 Mile straight away on my route. I always look at the stars at this point on my route. As I looked to the north I noticed something completely unusual, two stars in the sky brighter than Venus and they appeared to be traveling closer together as they were on opposite sides of the road. Initially I thought it could be a brain matrix as sometimes when you travel stationary objects appear to move, and there were two slight curves in the road. As I got to the straight away I tried to pay better attention to the lights to figure out why they were so bright. My first thought was perhaps they were landing lights of planes. Instantly I knew this was not the case as I see dozens of these every night. My focus went back to determining if they were stationary object or not. They appeared to still be traveling as both object were now in my windshield and I was traveling straight. I came to a complete stop to rule out anything I may be doing to cause these objects to appear to be moving. They continued to head towards one another until they crossed paths. Completely confused on what I was seeing I decided to something and I have no idea why I did this. I use very bright Hid lights colored pink. As this is a very open area and very secluded with little to no population I figured if I could see them perhaps they can see me. I flashed my lights in a distinct order two times fast and a pause for about half a second then flashed a second time. Feeling goofy about it in my own mind. I shifted to drive and was about to continue forward. When on a dime both object stopped without slowing down.
As soon as this happened my heart sank and my face become numb and flush with panic. I froze in place and could not think fast enough what to do next. The object on the right blinked then the object on the left blinked then together they blinked about half a second later. In the exact sequence I flashed my lights in. I immediately sped to the next drive way. I felt as if I needed to hide. I pulled into a driveway and parked where the trees blocked my view of the object that was on the right. I sat for a few seconds and grabbed my phone I wanted to text my wife and just tell her what was going on I looked at my phone and watched the battery go from 92% to 0 and shut off. I was listening to the radio station 107.7 the Bob and sheri show was on. And the station completely went out. I hit the scan button on my radio and could not pick up a single station. The static in the station began to pulsate in the same sequence I flashed my lights. A minute or two had past at this point and my only thought was to drive home I didn’t even finish my route I didn’t want to continue north bound and see the objects. As I looked out of my window the object was now hovering just above the trees where I could see it. This felt intentional to me. I sped off southbound trying to get home. I could not see the objects in my rear view mirror. And felt relived. I was now on a road surrounded by trees on all sides. I noticed at this point it was a very cloudy sky usually the sun would be coming out at this point no stars in the sky. I could now see through the trees as I was driving one object was following me southbound. As I came to another clearing I noticed the object seemed further away but was not traveling away from me but in the same direction I then noticed that the objects were actually stacked on top of each other. And we’re flashing what I can only describe as a beam. It appeared to look like when you shine a flashlight in the sky at night when some fog is present. The beam didn’t come all the way down to the ground it appeared to only travel a short distance from the objects. They were shinning this light in all directions. I tried to slow down as I slowed the objects slowed. I turned East onto Montezuma Rd. The objects for a moment were behind me I turned off to hwy 100 e heading toward Henderson tn. And the object were now on my right hand side as if they just appeared there. I was becoming more and more scared at this point and decided to take a back road so that I was at least in a more populated area surround by more tree cover. As I turned north bound Wilson school Rd. After about a mile I entered into tree cover I noticed a school bus in front me and felt safer for some reason. As I looked to the sky I could not see the objects any more. I continued on this road for another two miles and turned East on Sanford Rd. As I looked out my window I could see the object again through the trees. Still had no radio stations. I was at almost the exact spot I saw the helicopters earlier and as soon as I noticed where I was at two helicopters flying about 150 feet above the tree lines headed in the direction of the craft. The radio made the static sound again in the same sequence and it popped back on. I could no longer see the craft. I reached down for my phone and pressed the power button and it booted up. Battery was 92% but my clock was in eastern time zone. After about a min changed back to Central time. This was without a doubt the most bizarre thing to ever happen to me. I don’t feel comfortable even discussing this with my wife. I’m actually terrified to go back to work tomorrow. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
NAVY PLANES AND SHIPS TRACK UFO NEAR KODIAK ALASKA
JANUARY 22 AND 23 1950………..KODIAK ALASKA
An abundance of good information appears in the FBI’s files for 1950. The first item is a report from the old Office of Naval Investigation regarding UFO sightings on January 22 and 23, 1950, in the area of Kodiak, Alaska. The report lacks a number of enclosures which were once with the original but many details remain:
Date of Report: 10 Feb. 1950 Place: Kodiak, Alaska DIO/17ND Source: Official U.S. Navy Evaluation: A-2 Subject: Unidentified phenomena in vicinity of Kodiak, Alaska
a) at 220240W January Lt. SMITH, USN, patrol plane commander of P2V3 No. 4 of Patrol Squadron One reported an unidentified radar contact 20 miles north of the Naval Air Station, Kodiak, Alaska. When this contact was first made, Lt. SMITH was flying the Kodiak Security Patrol. At 0248W, 8 minutes later a radar contact was made on an object 10 miles southeast of NAS, Kodiak. Lt. SMITH checked with the control tower to determine known traffic in the area, and was informed that there was none. During this period the radar operator, GASKEY, ALC, USN reported intermittent radar interference of a type he had never before experienced (see enclosure (3)). Contact was lost at this time, but intermittent interference continued.
b) At some time between 0200 and 0300W, MORGAN was standing watch on board the USS Tillamock (ATA 192), which was anchored in the vicinity of buoy 19 in the main ship channel. MORGAN reported sighting a “very fast moving red glow light, which appeared to be of exhaust nature, seemed to come from the southeast, moved clockwise in a large circle in the direction of, and around Kodiak and returned but in a generally southeast direction.” MORGAN called CARVER, also on watch, to observe this object, and they both witnessed the return flight. The object was in sight for an estimated 30 seconds. No odor or sound was detected, and the object was described to have the appearance of a ball of fire about one foot in diameter.
c) At 220440W, conducting routine Kodiak security patrol, Lt. SMITH reported a visual sighting of an unidentified airborne object at a radar range of 5 miles, on the starboard bow. This object showed indications of great speed on the radar scope. (The trailing edge of the blip gave a tail-like indication.) At this time Lt. SMITH called attention of all crew members to the object. An estimated ten seconds later, the object was directly overhead, indicating a speed of about 1800 MPH. Lt. SMITH climbed to intercept and attempted to circle to keep the object in sight. He was unable to do this, as the object was too highly maneuverable. Subsequently the object appeared to be opening the range, and SMITH attempted to close the range. The object was observed to open out somewhat, then to turn to the left and come up on SMITH’S quarter. SMITH considered this to be a highly threatening gesture, and turned out all lights in the aircraft. Four minutes later the object disappeared from view in a southeasterly direction.
d) At 230435W, the day following Lt. SMITH’S sighting, Lt. CAUSER and Lt. BARCO of Patrol Squadron One were conducting the Kodiak Security Patrol and sighted an unidentified object. At the time of the sighting the aircraft in which those officers were embarked was approximately 62 miles south of Kodiak. The object appeared to be on an ascending westerly course, and was in sight for ten minutes. During this period the object was observed by Lt. CAUSER and BARCO, and PAULSON, ADi, plane captain. At no time was radar contact made on the object. Lt. CAUSER was unable to close the object at 170 knots.
e) The objects sighted have been described as follows:
(1) To Lt. SMITH and crew it appeared as two orange lights rotating about a common center, “like two jet aircraft making slow rolls in tight formation.” It had a wide speed range.
(2) To MORGAN and CARVER it appeared as a reddish orange ball of fire about one foot in diameter, travelling at a high rate of speed.
(3) To CAUSER, BARCO, and PAULSON it appeared to be a pulsating orange yellow projectile shaped flame, with a regular period of pulsation on 3 to 5 seconds, off 3 to 5 seconds. Later, as the object increased the range the pulsation appeared to increase to on 7 to 8 seconds and off 7 to 8 seconds. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
On February 10, a US Navy flight, Atlantic – Continental Air Transport Squadron one, located at USN Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland, was out of Keflavik, Iceland at 49-50 degrees north latitude and 50-03 degrees west longitude about 150 kilometers [90 miles] west of Gander, Newfoundland out over the Atlantic Ocean. The aircraft was probably bound for Gander to refuel judging by its position and course of 230 degrees true, though the report does not mention this. US Naval Reserve Lieutenant Graham Bethune, co-pilot of Flight 125, was occupying the captain’s seat on the left side of the cockpit in the passenger plane when he first sighted a huge object [at least] 300 feet in diameter on a near collision course with their aircraft. The co-pilot stated in his official report,… I observed a glow of light below the horizon about 1,000 to 1,500 feet [330-470 meters] above the water. We both [the pilot as well] observed its course and motion for about 4 or 5 minutes before calling it to the attention of the other crew members…
Suddenly its angle of attack changed. Its altitude and size increased as though its speed was in excess of 1,000 miles [1,670 kilometers] per hour. It closed in so fast that the first feeling was we would collide in midair. At this time, its angle changed and the color changed. It then [appeared] definitely circular and reddish orange on its perimeter. It reversed its course and tripled its speed until it was last seen disappearing over the horizon. The co-pilot’s report goes on to say that the object came within five miles of their aircraft which was borne out by radar evidence of the encounter because the object had been tracked by DEW Line Ground Radar at the base in Goose Bay, Labrador. When the plane landed, the entire crew was interrogated by AF Intelligence officers. At their destination, Patuxent Naval Air Station in Maryland, the pilot and the rest were questioned again by Naval Intelligence and required to sign full reports. Later, a government scientist (supposedly from the CIA) confidentially showed the pilot secret UFO photos – one portraying a disc like the one over the Atlantic. In a final interview, the commander was interviewed by Air Technical Intelligence officers at Wright-Patterson AFB. But none of the Navy or Air Force men, or the government scientist, would answer any questions about the UFOs. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
BRIGHT ORB WITNESSED NEAR McDILL AIR FORCE BASE IN TAMPA FLORIDA
12-31-14 ORANGE CITY FLORIDA MUFON
I was standing in my front yard when I observed the light and this is not the first time I have seen this. I was out having a smoke when I saw an orange pulsating light about 1000 to 1500 feet in the air. I then watched as it went from the area from the panhandle of Florida the north west to the area around Tampa from my self and then a couple of right angle moves and then disappeared going toward McDill Air force base to the south west of my self it went too fast for any normal plane or any thing like that unless we had one single fighter jet that can go faster then any thing I have seen in awhile . It changed direction a couple of times while moving at a very high rate of speed and then it just seemed to disappear in the direction of the Base I have mentioned. I have seen these objects a few times before in this area going close to the same area. I have seen a lot of objects that I just can not explain and this really bothers me a lot. I am an ex military person and I worked on helicopters. I can tell the difference between different planes and helicopters and this is not any thing I have seen in awhile and the color of the lights are just to bright and are to bright . I don’t see any thing in orange, red or colors like that and it was really moving from about a 200 to 400 mile’s ion a blink of an eye this is too fast for something that I know of that we have that they tell us about any way. I see these lights and objects a lot and in the last couple of years living in this area I have seen things that would make your skin crawl and I can not explain them. This really bothers me that there are things out there like this and the government does not say any thing about what they are or if they are even ours. I think they owe us an explanation about what these objects are or if they are even ours. I know we can take it. We are not cave men. We can handle it so tell us what is going on . I want to know.
