Texas UFO kills allegedly ground electronics, creates fog to hide in

A Texas witness at Katy recalled a UFO encounter from early 2016 where he and his wife watched a triangle UFO the size of a “mother ship” that apparently affected their electronic equipment at ground level and created a fog around itself, according to testimony in Case 81939 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and his wife were driving along I-10 near Katy at 7 p.m. on February 3, 2016, when the incident began.

“Looking up and out of the sun roof – because she said she had the inkling or feeling to do so – she points out to me what looks like two black dots or holes that might be a break in the clouds,” the witness states.

The witness stated that he could see the cloud cover moving between them and black dots – but then noticed a third black dot.

“So I could see the low night fog moving over these dots, so therefore it wasn’t a break in the cloud cover.”

The witness was intrigued by what he was seeing and used the time at a long red light to continue watching.

The witness then got a brief glimpse of a ship so large he referred to it as a ‘mother ship.’ Pictured: Katy, Texas. (Credit: Google)

“As I am looking up, a random area in the above fog surrounding these dots gets a very slight, but noticeable, illumination of sorts. For around 5-10 seconds, I can see a portion of this ship above us in the low cloud cover and it opens up and a disc/boomerang-shaped object comes out of it.”

After seeing this, the witness immediately pulled into a parking lot nearby to stop for a better look.

“After a short time, another very subtle illumination took place revealing this ‘mother ship’ – a term I use because of its size which was immeasurable, vast and made no noise that we could hear. It was cloaked in this fog or cloud cover almost as if the ship itself created the fog because once we left the fog seemed to disappear anywhere from 5-10 miles up the highway.”

While under the object, the witness pulled out a cell phone to attempt to record video.

“My camera was pixelating and it looked almost like a bunch of particles moving around, kind of like a slight static which – after playing it back later – it was not captured on the recording.”

Then they noticed a second electronic anomaly.

“Then our cell phones both died and would not recharge in the car the remainder of the night – after we just bought a new car charger. It still will not work in our relatively new BMW so we think it might be a fuse, but it’s odd that it decided to all of a sudden stop working out of the blue right after this took place.”

The witness thinks that the object itself created a fog around itself during the sighting. Pictured: Katy, Texas. (Credit: Google)

The two noticed that no one in the cars around them seemed to noticed.

“My advice is to start looking up. You will be surprised by what you see. Katy, Texas, is a hot spot for sure. A lot of activity.”

Katy  is located in Harris, Fort Bend, and Waller counties, Texas, population 14,102. Texas MUFON State Section Director Charles Stansburge is investigating.

Palm Springs witness beleives helicopter was observing UFO

A California witness at Palm Springs reported watching a large, red glowing object 400 feet from the top of a local mountain with a helicopter hovering nearby, according to testimony in Case 81924 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was outside in a front yard checking a security camera at 6:50 p.m. on February 4, 2017, when the incident began.

“We have the Palm Springs mountain directly across from our home and often look up at it when the moon is out because of the glow from the moon on the snow I enjoy,” the witness stated.“What I saw first was a helicopter flying around the top of the mountain by the aerial tramway. We get request reports of missing hikers on the mountain and when I saw the helicopter shining a spotlight on the mountain, I thought they were looking for someone.”

The witness then went inside and asked his wife to step outside for a look.

“I was in the Marine Corp with a helosquadron as a medic and got to see quite a few different styles of helicopters, so I knew what I was looking at, especially after I heard the rotors of the helicopter and the searchlight. I then went inside and got my field telescope to see what was going on.”

The witness noticed that the helicopter seemed very focused on one particular area, but did fly around to different spots.

“The area they focused on when I zoomed in on the area, I saw a large, red sphere that remained on. The helicopter never shined the light directly on the object, but behind and to the right side of it. I assumed it was a team of people, maybe rescue crews, looking for others? I made a comment to my wife about how skilled this pilot must have been. I had an outstanding view of the helicopter even at 7 in the evening and because it really isn’t that far from our home.”

The pilot remained absolutely still in midair over the object for very long periods of time without moving at all – completely stationary.

“That was on the side of the mountain about 10,100 feet up, 400 feet from the very top of the mountain by the tram itself. My wife had a few looks of it too and we still were wondering what on earth was going on up there. I made a few comments as time was going by like how very strange this all was. Was this a downed plane?”

The witness then brought his tripod and telescope closer to end of the property in the front yard to get a closer look.

“To my absolute astonishment, as I was looking at the helicopter shining the spotlight again, this sphere changed different colors. First white, then light blue, then red again and paused changing colors. With my wife right beside me and as I was looking through the scope, the red sphere changed shape, flattened like a pancake and from the exact spot it was on, flew straight to the right due north with the helicopter observing it. It traveled about a quarter of a mile and then stopped changed direction and traveled due south and disappeared out of view.”

The witness observed that the object was not flying fast at all, but more like a controlled glide.

“I observed it flat from the side, but as I was able to keep it in view with the telescope, I could clearly see three lights, two brilliant red (like rubies) at the front and rear, and a smaller white light on the side. The object appeared to be see-through and triangular in shape and when observing it, it had a dream-like quality to it. It was exceptionally beautiful to look at and it never made a sound. As I’m writing this, seeing how it happened less than two hours ago, I’m absolutely amazed at what I saw. My wife got to view this object and the helicopter also, but didn’t see the object change color or shape as I witnessed.”

The witness says he has mixed feelings about the incident, but “shock” comes to mind.

“I never thought in a million years that the red object that we were observing would actually take flight and fly away. We lost sight of it as it went behind the lower edge of the mountain going south with the helicopter still flying around the top of the mountain by the tram. I wonder now, were they looking for occupants on the side of the mountain?”

The red lit object eventually moved north of the helicopter and then disappeared from view. Pictured: Palm Springs Tramway area. (Credit: Google)

The witness observed that the tram on the side of the mountain seemed to have stopped during the incident.

“Palm Springs Tramway is a very popular attraction during the winter months here. When we were observing the helicopter flying around and then seeing the red sphere, the tramway that runs every 15 minutes with a trolling going up and coming down the mountain, not one cable car came up or down the mountain. Chances are for the length of time we were looking we would have seen one of the cable cars or both. Also during the entire event through the telescope, we saw different teams of people with high powered flashlights trying to get over to where the helicopter was shining the spotlight by this object. But with the recent snowfall from storms, they weren’t having much luck, or so it seemed.”

Shape-shifting UFO reportedly deadens sound around witness

An Idaho witness at Idaho Falls reported watching and photographing a fire-colored, shape-shifting object that seemed to silence natural sounds in the area when it passed over, according to testimony in Case 81932 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was inside meditating when a sibling came inside to alert family that an unknown object was moving towards the house.

“While I was getting ready to go outside, my two nephews were already outside, and one of them turned on his phone camera to take video,” the witness stated. “But he said the phone kept giving him an error when trying to take video. He switched to take pictures and he managed to take four images of the object.”

The witness went outside and was informed by the nephews that the object could be seen in the northwest sky.

“I saw the object when it was leaving. It had a very intense red and orange color to it – very bright. My nephew was the one who took the images. He told me the object, before passing over the house,that it remained a sphere shape, but once it passed over the house it started to change shape. He said, ‘The closest thing that this can resemble is one of those light sabers from that movie “StarWars.”’ It had that same effect. It would stretch. It would go from a sphere to a cigar shape and once it passed the house it went back to just being a sphere. He said all around the object there was this wave-like pattern of fire.”

The witness also noticed changes in the immediate area as the UFO moved over.

“Everything went super silent while the object passed by – no bird sounds, no wind sound, no car sounds, nothing. Just silence and this effect of sound cancelling was only when the object was passing over the house and everything went back to normal once the object left.”
