Witness says UFO hovered alongside second-floor balcony

A Vermont witness at St. Albans reported watching an object hover alongside her second-floor balcony that could not be identified, according to testimony in Case 79413 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness said her daughter first saw the object floating just a few feet from their second floor balcony in St. Albans, VT, on September 15, 2016. (Credit: Google)

The events occurred beginning about 7:15 p.m. on September 15, 2016.

“I was at home with my 9-year-old daughter and my husband,” the witness stated.“My husband was in the shower and did not witness any of this event. I was in the kitchen getting dinner ready, and my daughter was in the living room watching TV. The living room has a sliding glass door that opens to our second floor balcony.”

The witness first heard a noise outside.

“It sounded like there were a couple of motorcycles, maybe across the road in the sports complex’s parking lot, that were revving their engines or something. It was kind of loud, and a little disruptive, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it, since there is a fair amount of traffic where we live. After a couple of minutes, my daughter said to me, ‘Hey, Mom, it’s a helicopter.’ I said, ‘Oh yeah?’ I really wasn’t interested in stopping what I was doing to look at a helicopter, but I did to make her happy.”

The witness went to see what her daughter was looking at.

“You can imagine my surprise when I went into the living room to look out the sliding glass door to see a helicopter in the sky, but instead saw an object hovering literally right next to the left corner post of our balcony. The object could not have been any more than 10 feet away from us, maximum.”

The witness quickly reacted.

“I became quite alarmed and gruffly told my daughter to get inside and away from the glass. I looked back over at the object, which continued to hover momentarily. It was solid black in the front. It could not have had any propellers on it because the object was so close that the propellers would have been striking the building. Also, I did not feel any wind or breeze coming from the direction of the object. The glass door was open to my balcony, so I would have felt something coming through the screen. My hair did not even move.”

The object hovered momentarily before lifting off straight up into the air. (Credit: Google)

The witness then had a second look at the object.

“After telling my daughter to move away, and then turning to look back at the object, it went from a hovering position, to a straight up vertical ascent, extremely fast. In this position the object had an egg-shaped front, with a long thin part extending toward the back, connected at the back, top part, maybe eight feet long? Not sure. The extension part looked like it had some red color on it. The object ascended straight up, and then started to turn like it was going to go upside down.”

The witness thought the object might crash.

“I became concerned that it was going to crash on the ground. Then a light army green-colored helicopter (a real one) was traveling over our building coming from the south and headed north. As the green helicopter went over-head, the black and red object vanished. Literally. My daughter also saw the object ascend, since she had only moved away from the window, and did not go where I had wanted her to. “

Her daughter had more details to share.

“Later, my daughter shared with me that she had seen the object arrive, starting at the east end of our balcony and stopping at the west end of it. Initially, I was pretty confused by what I had seen, and thought the object was a helicopter, as my daughter had thought. It all happened so unexpectedly and quickly.”

The witness noticed other odd occurrences.

“Also, I felt like my brain wasn’t really processing my observations like it normally would. Almost felt like I was a little bit ‘trance-like,’ which I think is why it took me a few days to sort out what I actually saw, backed up by my daughter’s observations, and come to terms with what happened. However, looking at all of the facts, there is no way the object could have been a helicopter.”

The daughter experienced problems after the incident.

“The next morning after the sighting of the object, my daughter woke in her bed with a bleeding nose. Also, she was very distressed, angry, agitated, and physically aggressive. She was one and-a-half hours late for school because I could not get her to calm down.”

The witness explained her own feelings.

“My reactions and feeling were: Initially fear and concern. Why was someone in a helicopter hovering next to our balcony? Were we in danger? Then somewhat a feeling of awe watching it ascend so quickly, and also from what it looked like. Then concern again that it was making unsafe maneuvers and might crash. Then extreme confusion. Initially, it seemed like the object had turned into the green helicopter heading north. But, really it just vanished, as the helicopter was going over. I have to say, this has been an unsettling experience.”

The witness reports strange experiences locally from the past as well.

“The event happened after a series of sightings of strange lights, farther away, one of which had been on the ground across the road from us a few weeks prior. I am concerned that we could be confronted again. I just don’t know what to expect at this point. Trying to not dwell on it and focus on the blessings of each day. But, experiencing a lot of anxiety and stress, to be quite honest. Also, maybe a little curious, too.”

The witness was outside at Stonewall Resort with three others at 6:18 a.m. on September 5, 2016, when the incident began.

“We were heading to the top of the hill to get our machinery out for the morning job,” the witness stated.“It was pretty dark out still so we sat there waiting for it to get a bit brighter out so we could see what we were doing.”

The witness then noticed the object.

“I happened to look up at the stars like I do sometimes. I noticed a bright light moving in the sky. I pointed it out asking what the heck it was. One of our guys said it’s just an airplane. I disagreed. Airplanes have different lights. At the time it just looked like a solid light moving in a straight direction but shifting side-to-side as well.”

The witness was able to get some low level video of the object.

“I grabbed my phone and zoomed in as close as I could to get a video. My phone goes zoomed up to 4x, but it’s a cheap Android so the quality was bad. I decided to take a photo as well. There was another one some distance away you can see in the photo.”

The witness then reviewed the photo and video at home.

I zoomed in on that photo and I was shocked. I showed my girlfriend as well. What was a single light was actually four lights in a triangle shape. The way they are facing doesn’t match the direction it moves.”

Living and Dying With a Comet

Like many other space enthusiasts around the world, I woke up today in a bittersweet mood as I read the reports about the death of the European Space Agency’s Rosetta comet probe. Its demise was carefully planned and long foretold but was sad all the same, putting a period at the end of a story that rolling out for more than 12 years. During that time, Rosetta made three passes by Earth, one by Mars, visited a pair of asteroids, and spent more than two years scrutinizing Comet 67P/Churyumov–
