The witness was returning home from the hospital at 10 p.m. on April 19, 2017, when the incident occurred.

“It was about a 15-minute drive,but felt much longer that night,” the witness stated.“No vehicles in sight. Out of nowhere a bright, yellow-colored light appeared in my rearview mirror nearly blinding me.”

The driver eventually released the object was 20 feet over the vehicle as she approached Edson. (Credit: Google)

The witness first thought the light might be a vehicle approaching from behind.

“I continued driving and slowed down a little, hoping it was passing me. That’s when it started to speed up and that’s when I realized it was above the car, maybe a 20-foot distance.”

The witness described the object.

“I noticed it was a bright, yellow-orange color and glowed. I could not make out the details as it was too bright. I sped up to get away from it, but it continued at the same speed overhead. For 15minutes, it remained this way. When I got closer to my destination, I went down a hill to get to my turn and slowed right down. The UFO then abruptly changed direction towards where I was headed to. Hovered above the property and then the UFO glowing light went dim and disappeared into the darkness of the night.”

Once at her destination, the object briefly hovered over the property before moving away. Pictured: Edson, AB, Canada. (Credit: Google)

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.”

“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.”

Roswell UFO drops in front of witness vehicle

A New Mexico witness at Roswell reported a late-night encounter with a silent, triangle-shaped UFO just 20 feet ahead while driving along a main road moving out of town, according to testimony in Case 80348 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness stated that she and her husband were driving from Albuquerque to Carlsbad and had stopped in Roswell to grab a bite to eat before continuing their journey on October 24, 2016.

“After eating – well after sunset – we headed back on the main road out of town,” the witness stated.“Stopping at a red light, behind a couple cars, in our truck with vehicles all around us, we both noticed and said out loud that the object was coming straight towards us from the dark sky.”

The two had recently seen other strange lights.

“In the two week’s prior we had seen ‘lights’ in the sky around Albuquerque and thought this was going to be the same – nope.”

In comparison, this object was right in front of them.

“This one was huge in comparison to the far away sightings we had seen before and close. I didn’t have time to take out my camera or to think really because I didn’t want to miss what was happening.”

The witness described the object.

“The object had lights on all ends, the front(or back) was more triangular with bright, white lights; the back(or front), which was closest to us, was more rounded, but still triangular and had bright red, green and blue lights shining down. It was larger than our truck, appeared to be a solid object and appeared out of ‘nowhere’ and coming straight towards us.”

The witness was not sure what the object was.

“I didn’t know what I thought it was, and after speaking with my husband later, he described what he thought maybe an optical illusion, but then dismissed it right away because I was at a different view point and there was no mistaking it was an object of sorts, not just lights from reflections.”

The object’s first appearance was very close to the witness.

“So, we first noticed it being about no more than 20 feet in front of us at about eye level. It slowly, and at the same time quickly, moved right to us and then stopped/hovered right over top of our truck. I thought I would be able to look out the back window and continue to follow its motion, but it was nowhere in sight when I did, and at the same time the traffic light was turning green (husband was driving) and we started driving forward.”

The witness immediately felt unusual.

“I felt like numb, like did that really just happen and where did the thing go? Also, I didn’t have time to think in the moment, but later wondered, did the other cars see it too? They must have. My husband’s accounts of what occurred are right in line with everything that happened. I felt like it could have been a dream, but it was definitely real life. All this happened over the span of maybe 5-7 seconds and then everything was normal (ish) again.”

The witness has previously had unusual experiences.

“This was not the first experience I’ve had, but definitely the strangest and one worth reporting, I hope to have some light (no pun intended) shed on what happened that night. I must also say that on our trip home the following night we did see a black helicopter carrying something large underneath it – it was too far in the distance to fully capture and I was exhausted of thinking by that point. I don’t know where that was or what time and is not the original report, just had to mention. Thank you.”

Roswell is a city in New Mexico, and is the county seat of Chaves County, population 48,411. Arizona MUFON State Director Donald R. Burleson investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown.

“No conventional explanation for the nature of the described object comes readily to mind,” Burleson wrote in his report. “All things considered, the most prudent conclusion seems to be Unknown/UAV.”

Hovering sphere UFO splits into three objects

A Wisconsin witness at Medford reported watching a hovering sphere in the night sky that split into three spheres before “turning off,” according to testimony in Case 79892 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and a friend were camping at Spearhead Point Campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest at 7 p.m. on October 13, 2016, when the incident occurred.

“This was our fourth night at the campground, and the first night since we had been there that the sky was clear,” the witness stated. “I had noticed a bright, white sphere in the eastern sky, and I had been trying to figure out what it was. It was too big for a star, and I thought that it might be a planet.”

The witness continued to keep an eye on the object.

“All of the sudden it started to move, slowly at first, and then faster. I told my friend what I was seeing as my friend is blind. It was moving south-southeast, and had become obscured by some evergreen trees.”

The witness then ran from the picnic table, down the steps to the dock at the campground, to gain a better view of the object that was moving south-southeast. But the object could not be seen. Then back at the picnic table area, the witness again saw the sphere.

“While I was describing the sphere, and scrambling to find a camera or our video recorder, the sphere split forming two spheres. When it split, it appeared as though the new sphere dripped off the original sphere. These spheres were originally aligned vertically, and then the lower sphere moved upward to be aligned horizontally. Once the spheres were aligned horizontally, one of the spheres split again. There were now three spheres aligned horizontally.”

The witness noticed a change in size when the spheres split.

“Each time there was a split, the spheres became smaller, and they were all bright white. The two spheres on either side just seemed to turn off, leaving the sphere in the middle. That sphere began to change colors, cycling through white to red to red-orange. This continued for about a minute, and then that sphere just turned off. The original sphere was slightly bigger than a BB held at arm’s length, and it was oriented approximately 45-degrees above the horizon.”

The witness could not estimate how far away the objects were.

“Since I’m not familiar with the area, I don’t have an estimate of how far away the object might have been from the campground. The object(s) did not make any noise, and I didn’t see anything like an exhaust trail. The overall sighting lasted around 40-50 minutes. About 20 minutes after all of the objects had disappeared, a plane flew over our campground. It was easy to hear the plane’s engine. You could see the outline of the plane in the sky, as well as see the aviation lights blinking on and off. Unfortunately, we did not get a photo of the object(s).

Hovering sphere UFO splits into three objects

A Wisconsin witness at Medford reported watching a hovering sphere in the night sky that split into three spheres before “turning off,” according to testimony in Case 79892 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and a friend were camping at Spearhead Point Campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest at 7 p.m. on October 13, 2016, when the incident occurred.

“This was our fourth night at the campground, and the first night since we had been there that the sky was clear,” the witness stated. “I had noticed a bright, white sphere in the eastern sky, and I had been trying to figure out what it was. It was too big for a star, and I thought that it might be a planet.”

The witness continued to keep an eye on the object.

“All of the sudden it started to move, slowly at first, and then faster. I told my friend what I was seeing as my friend is blind. It was moving south-southeast, and had become obscured by some evergreen trees.”

The witness then ran from the picnic table, down the steps to the dock at the campground, to gain a better view of the object that was moving south-southeast. But the object could not be seen. Then back at the picnic table area, the witness again saw the sphere.

“While I was describing the sphere, and scrambling to find a camera or our video recorder, the sphere split forming two spheres. When it split, it appeared as though the new sphere dripped off the original sphere. These spheres were originally aligned vertically, and then the lower sphere moved upward to be aligned horizontally. Once the spheres were aligned horizontally, one of the spheres split again. There were now three spheres aligned horizontally.”

The witness noticed a change in size when the spheres split.

“Each time there was a split, the spheres became smaller, and they were all bright white. The two spheres on either side just seemed to turn off, leaving the sphere in the middle. That sphere began to change colors, cycling through white to red to red-orange. This continued for about a minute, and then that sphere just turned off. The original sphere was slightly bigger than a BB held at arm’s length, and it was oriented approximately 45-degrees above the horizon.”

The witness could not estimate how far away the objects were.

“Since I’m not familiar with the area, I don’t have an estimate of how far away the object might have been from the campground. The object(s) did not make any noise, and I didn’t see anything like an exhaust trail. The overall sighting lasted around 40-50 minutes. About 20 minutes after all of the objects had disappeared, a plane flew over our campground. It was easy to hear the plane’s engine. You could see the outline of the plane in the sky, as well as see the aviation lights blinking on and off. Unfortunately, we did not get a photo of the object(s). My camera had fallen out of my backpack onto the ground under the picnic table, and I didn’t see it there until the next morning. We did get the video camera out, but were unable to record the object(s) due to a camera malfunction.”
