The case was reported for the witness – who had the experience on April 14, 2017.

“My mother was traveling through the Arizona desert via train, on her way to Texas,” she stated.“She was unable to sleep due to movement of the train. She said she was looking out of the cabin window and saw a very bright light that became brighter as the train approached.”

The witness saw more than one object.

“She said she then saw six objects hovering side-by-side; close enough to see that each object had two rows of windows. She described them as being ‘two-story.’ She said that they were so bright and that a foggy sort of light was beaming down from underneath each object.”

The witness attempted to photograph what she was seeing.

“She frantically reached for her cell phone in time to snap a couple of photos. I, myself, have seen some pretty amazing things in the sky that I can only describe as being extraterrestrial, and she was the biggest skeptic until she seen for herself. She was so excited to share this with me. She is not one to exaggerate or seek attention in anyway. She’s a no BS kind of lady. I know what she saw was genuine. She asked that I share with the UFO community. Enjoy.”

The witness was alone on a home balcony smoking a cigarette at 4:30 a.m. on April 23, 2017, gazing at the “waning crescent moon.”

“As I was observing the moon, thinking about different non-related things in my mind, I all of a sudden noticed a big, cigar-shaped object a couple degrees to the right of the moon,” the witness stated.

The witness described the object.

“The object seemed large. It was of a white-gray color, cylindrical-shaped. What seemed to be the front of the cylinder was a couple degrees upward and the bottom a couple degrees downward. In other words, it was at an angle. It did not move. It was static in the sky at the moment I noticed it.”

The witness was confused and did not know what the object was.

“A lapse of three seconds went by until the object seemed to pulsate with a white, circular light at the bottom end of the ship. In a fraction of a second after this pulse was emitted, the object propelled itself at an incredible speed. The movement lasted about a second. At the end of the second, the object pulsated another white circular light. This time at the front of the ship. And it seemed to have entered this light and disappeared. There were absolutely no sounds emitted whatsoever before, during or after the incident.”

The witness noted that Ottawa Airport is about two minutes away from where the sighting happened.

“I am used to seeing airplanes taking off or flying by. I always hear them, and I am more than certain that this was no plane. This object was huge, had no wings. It was static in the air. It made no sounds whatsoever. It flew at a speed of a shooting star upwards and disappeared.”

After the incident, the witness went inside and woke up a friend.

“I told him what had happened, but he was really sleepy, so he went to bed. I have attached a sketch of what I saw and I have enumerated the sequence of how the event happened.”

Witness describes helicopter chasing ball of light

A Kansas witness at Lawrence reported watching a military helicopter apparently chasing an orange ball of light moving overhead under 1,000 feet, according to testimony in Case 83535 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was inside an apartment watching television when the sound of a helicopter was heard at 11:15 p.m. on May 4, 2017.

“It sounded very low and powerful, so I figured it had to be military, and I, being a total nerd, had to run out to the parking lot to get a look,” the witness stated.“By the time I was out my door and in the parking lot, I had just enough time to watch a small, orange ball of light being chased by what I assume to be a Blackhawk helicopter (because of size and sound) disappear behind the rooftops of the buildings east of me.”

This struck the witness as bizarre.

“I saw something similar some months ago in the same general area – the skies south of Lawrence. I live on the south side of town, not far from Baker Wetlands.”

The witness described the event.

“The light was small and orange in color and was about 50-100 yards ahead of the helicopter. It made no erratic movements, but was travelling at a fair clip as the helicopter was tracking it at almost the exact speed and it was moving pretty quickly.”

The witness does not believe the orange light could have been a sky lantern.

“I have my doubts that this could’ve been a paper lantern – though the color and intensity of the light were similar to one – and the distance ahead of the helicopter rules out a refueling boom. I’d give the altitude of the two objects to be between 500-1,000 feet AGL and the speed of both to be about 100 knots at the time I saw them.”

The witness noted there was one other object in the sky.

Both objects were flying under 1,000 feet. Pictured: Lawrence, Kansas. (Credit: Google)

“I saw another object in the sky in the general area at the same time, though it may not have been connected. This object seemed to be an aircraft judging by the red and white lights it had on it, but it hovered in place for a moment until the lights slowly faded out with no apparent change in location. The direction I was looking toward would be about a straight line to KCI, so I wasn’t immediately suspicious, but – having seen plenty of air traffic heading to and from KCI on that flight path – this didn’t look like anything I’d seen before – and no landing lights. I mention this because it was odd and because the previous sighting of a few months earlier of the same kind of event had two helicopters chasing the light instead of just one. Maybe this was the second.”

Kurt Russell alleges he witnessed famous Phoenix UFO event (VIDEO)

Kurt Russell claims to have witnessed a UFO above Phoenix, Arizona during one of the largest mass-UFO sightings in U.S. history. He discussed the event recently on BBC One’s, The One Show.

Russell is one of the leads in the new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was released recently. At the end of April, Russell appeared with co-star Chris Pratt on The One Show to promote the movie. During the interview, host Gyles Brandreth brought out a folder labeled Top Secret and X-Filish music began playing. Brandreth said he had searched the international news clippings for a story Russell and Pratt may be interested in.

Brandreth told the story in the clipping about an unidentified pilot who was flying in his private aircraft with his son near an airport in Phoenix. The pilot spotted six lights in the night sky and reported this to the control tower to find out what was going on. The tower said there were no other planes in the area.

Then in a grand finale to his story, Brandreth dramatically exclaimed, “Mystery unresolved!”

During Brandreth’s telling of the story, Pratt listened, interested, but with no real reaction. However, Russell smiled coyly. As soon as Brandreth finished, Russell chimed in.

“The tail number for that plane was Bonanza two Tango Sierra, and I was the pilot,”  Russell claimed, to the audible amazement of the other The One Show hosts. Pratt apparently was not aware this of this piece of information either. His reaction was to don an incredulous smirk as he listened to Russell tell more of the story.

Russell explained that Oliver Hudson (Goldie Hawn’s son from her first marriage, who considers Russell his father) and he were flying into Phoenix so that Hudson could see his girlfriend.

“We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” Russell continued.

According to Russell, Hudson asked him if he knew what the lights were, Russell said he did not and decided to call the tower. The tower said their radar did not detect anything, so Russell said he declared it “unidentified” since it was flying and appeared to be six objects.

The two then landed, Hudson got out, and Russell returned to L.A. The two never gave the incident a second thought after that, until two years later. Russell says he came home one day and Hawn was watching a TV show on UFOs that was covering a famous UFO event in Phoenix.

“That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” explained Russell.

Russell says as he watched the show, he “felt like Richard Dreyfuss from Close Encounters.” He felt as though for some reason he knew something about the event. The show then mentioned that a general aviation pilot reported seeing the UFO upon landing, and that is when Russell thought to himself, “that was me.”

Russell went to go check his log books, and sure enough, the flight was at the time of the UFO sighting.

“The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally, out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” Russell told the group.

Pratt, who had claimed earlier in the show to be a skeptic when it comes to UFOs, still seemed a bit hesitant, so Russell added, “It is unidentified, it is flying, and it’s an object.”

Apparently, this is the first time Russell has told this story in public. Prior to this, Russell has not been associated with the famous Phoenix UFO sighting, which took place on March 13, 1997, and is referred to as the Phoenix Lights. He did not indicate when it was he saw the UFO program that reminded of him of the incident, but my guess would be that The One Show asked the guests for any interesting space or UFO related stories they could share, and Russell certainly came up with a doozy.

You can be sure Russell’s account will be added to the narrative of the Phoenix Lights UFO event, especially if I am the one telling it.

Wisconsin orbs described hovering at tree line

A Wisconsin witness at Sawyer County reported watching “three stacked orbs” hovering at a nearby tree line for 45 minutes, according to testimony in Case 83015 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and his mother contacted Wisconsin Field Investigator Chad Laibly, who completed the report.

“The witness was having a cigarette at 11:50 p.m. when he walked out onto his wrap-around deck, came around a corner, and immediately noticed a bright object out of his peripheral vision,” Laibly stated in the report.“It scared the heck out of him.”

The witness immediately went to get his mother and she too noticed the object.

“As it was fairly cold, she only observed the phenomenon for 10 minutes. He watched it steadily for 45 minutes straight. Went inside, came out two hours later and it was gone.”

The object he observed quite well consisted of three orbs stacked on top of each other with an aura-type force sparkling force field surrounding them.

“The orbs were 12-15 feet wide, making the object about 36-45 feet tall. It was observed hovering above a tree line that was approximately one football field away and two football fields high. The orbs were solid, not transparent. The bottom was all white with a smear of pink. The middle was aqua-marine in color. The top was white/yellow to gold in color. All three orbs were surrounded by an unbroken, fuzzy ‘force field’ outline existing about a foot away from the edges of the objects – giving the objects the look of a full peapod.”

The objects were described as brighter than any other observable star. The witness identified the North Star as being to the east and not the object.

“He did not think it could be a drone or Chinese lantern in any way. It made no noise. It did not move slowly as time went on. It hovered silently and stayed about 35-degrees above the horizon with several houses and a golf course beneath. It did not dim. It did not waiver. The edges kind of sparkled, like a sparkler.”

The object hovered over several houses and a golf course for 45 minutes. Pictured: Sawyer County, WI. (Credit: Google)

The witness says there were no negative effects related to the sighting.

“No missing time noted. No clouds, a very light wind at 5mph present. About 30-35 degrees in temperature he believed. He has no glasses and sees, hears, and smells fine. He has a phone, but knows from experience he can’t take pictures of stars at night because they never turn out. He’s quite often on his porch and has tried to do so in the past. He was quite shocked, watched it intently for a long time, is certain of his observation as described, and says it has changed his entire outlook on life. He will buy some color pencils and attempt to sketch a likeness.”

British bus driver videotapes triangle UFO

A British witness at Exmouth reported watching and videotaping three lights forming a triangle pattern slowly crossing the sky, according to testimony in Case 832412 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness is a bus driver and was outside on a break at 9:41 p.m. on April 17, 2017, when the incident occurred.

“I was taking to my best man about my upcoming wedding on the phone,” the witness stated.“I would normally be in our restroom, but since the clock in the restroom was fast (about 7 minutes fast) I had gone out early to wait while still chatting to my friend. While I was talking, I was just kind of walking about near the leisure center, where my bus stops, when I looked randomly over in the direction of the river, which is when I saw the three lights in a triangle pattern rotating on its axis and wobbling slightly.”

The witness instantly felt that the object was not normal.

“I have been interested in the subject of UFOs since I was about 10. I told my mate I’d ring him back and started filming the lights with my phone. Due to the street lights my camera was having a hard time focusing on the formation, so I moved closer to the river to get a better view – in some haste since I still had to drive a bus which was going to be there at any moment.”

The witness then shot a 2-min, 40-second video. The witness then took 7 photos and another 41 seconds of video.

“It’s at this point I really had to go back to the bus stop to get my bus. As I walked over,four people got out of a car in the car park and I pointed out the lights to them – to which they showed a bit of interest, but not much.”

The bus arrived at 10:02 p.m.

“I showed the lights to my co-worker who tried to think of any reason they might be something other than a UFO – drone, laser pointers, etc. He went to cash-in and finish and I had to drive as I was now 7 minutes late. I drove to the turn-around point and back in about 8 mins and the lights were gone by the time I got back down to town – and could not see them on the way down as I had a good view over the area due to the road I was driving.”

Man’s Best UFO Witness?

We all know that dogs are man’s best friends, but could they also be our best UFO witnesses? With their vastly superior sense of hearing, smell, and ability to see in low light, perhaps every field investigator and researcher should consider getting a canine companion!

Over the years of collecting accounts of UFO activity from the tri-state region of the Hudson Valley of New York, northern New Jersey, and western Connecticut, I have heard numerous eyewitness accounts of how dogs alerted their owners or neighbors to a UFO. Generally, the dogs’ reactions are those of fear, accompanied by barking or howling. Such cases are frequent enough that NICAP has a separate classification (Category 4) for “Animal Effect Cases,” and MUFON had a Special Publication in 2005 entitled “Animal Reactions to UFOs.”

This painting is called the “Madonna and Child with the Infant St John.” It is a nativity scene estimated to be perhaps as old as the sixteenth century in which it appears a man and his dog are looking at a UFO in the background. (Credit: Blastr)

One of my favorite NICAP case involves “Thunder,” the 175-pound Great Dane who “went crazy” barking by the sliding doors toward the woods of his Sandy Hook, CT home at 8:30 pm on the night of March 31, 1983. After several minutes of incessant barking, his owner went to see what was causing Thunder so much distress. There was a massive V-shaped craft which remained hovering in the sky for 20 minutes. Thunder “appeared fearful and barked” the entire time, and the next day he refused to go outside. Anything that would provoke such fright in a 175-pound dog would certainly be enough to make me think twice about going outside!

I recently interviewed a woman from Cresskill, New Jersey who had a German Shepherd named Hans, who had a similar reaction back in 1968. Hans was just two years old; strong, and very protective of his owner. While walking Hans near a schoolyard, the woman and her friend spotted a dumbbell-shaped craft hovering silently over the school field. They were mesmerized by the sight, but their “trance was broken” by Hans, who was “cowering, trying to dig a hole in the dirt on the side of Rose Street (which was unpaved at that time) and whimpering.” This fearful reaction by the usually fearless dog caused them all to run for home.

Another dramatic case involved a golden retriever in Putnam Valley, NY in the fall of 1984. The witness, “Joe,” told me that one night his dog began to whine, so Joe assumed he wanted to go out. However, when he opened the back door, the dog began to tremble and whine even more. Joe finally got the dog outside, where he promptly curled up into a tight ball and whined in terror. It was then that Joe noticed the entire sky above him was blacked out.

A massive black triangle, “the size of two football fields,” was hovering no more than 250 feet above him. Yelling for his wife, she came out and was also stunned and frightened by what she saw. The craft “just sat there” over them for at least five minutes. A week later, strange figures began appearing by Joe’s bed at night, he developed uncontrollable nose bleeds, and this activity continued until the following summer when he finally decided to move out of his house. Perhaps Joe should have paid more attention to his dog!

Another case I just covered in my new book “More Hudson Valley UFOs” involved four witnesses on a hot, summer night in 1988. The four friends were by Lake DeForest in Congers, NY—a location I have written about on several occasions, and where I had my own intense experience. The dogs in the neighborhood “began howling crazily” and then an odd “snake-like” UFO appeared in the sky with alternating red and green lights composing the “body,” with a bright, white beacon at the “head.”

Throughout the sighting, the “Dogs were barking and howling and making a total racket,” one witness told me. Another witness described the incredible sounds as “The dogs of Rockland (County) going out of their skulls.” As dogs are capable of hearing at distances four times greater than humans, and can hear at much higher frequencies, can we conclude that these craft—which are often silent to us—are emitting sounds that are alerting our dogs to their presence long before they come into our view? Should investigators consider utilizing sound detectors in the roughly 20,000 to 60,000Hz range to replicate the superior capabilities that dogs have over us?

There were other cases of dog reactions with which I have dealt that may bear this sound theory out. During a cold winter’s night in 1985 in the town of Wallkill, NY, a man told me his dog “was barking frantically outside.” He tried several times to quiet the dog, to no avail. Then a 40-foot diameter sphere of multi-colored lights appeared over a field across the street. This bizarre craft, which looked like a “massive ball of Christmas lights” began rotating and moving, almost as if it was rolling down the field, only it definitely remained above the ground. After this craft “shot straight up into the air” and was gone, an enormous triangular craft passed directly over his house. How did the dog know these craft were in the area before they could be seen, and why was he so frightened by them?

More recently, on January 4, 2013, a man in Pine Bush, NY, who works in law enforcement, couldn’t get his dogs to stop barking out in the yard. As he was trying to calm them down, he realized “There was something huge in the sky that blocked out all the stars.” The object was an incredibly large, silent rectangle at an altitude of about 200-250 feet. There were several white lights along the edges, one in the center, and one red light, as well.

Finally, there is the remarkable case from Monroe, NY in 1982. A woman, Donna, was in bed with her husband when her two Samoyed dogs “started going crazy” as if there were intruders in the house. Donna tried to wake up her husband, but he somehow remained in a deep sleep despite all the barking.

“Then there were these bright lights shining in the bedroom window, as if a Mack truck had just pulled up.” The next thing Donna knew was that it was morning. Her skeptical husband didn’t believe a word of what she told him about the dogs and the lights, and her being unable to awaken him—until he went outside to look for any signs that something had been there.

Running back in the house, white as a sheet, he told Donna that the huge pile of sand that was in the driveway (which was going to be used for a construction project) was completely gone. All that was left was a few concentric circles of sand which had been compressed and fused into the blacktop! Fortunately, they had the presence of mind to take photographs, so we can estimate the size of the outermost circle, which was about 12 feet in diameter. And while the original circles have been paved over, Donna told me that I would be welcome to uncover and study them, if I can find the appropriate scientific team to do it.

So what are we to learn from “man’s best friends” and their reactions to UFOs? They are able to sense a lot more than we are, and can sense whatever it is at greater distances and long before our eyes and ears can pick it up. Researchers and investigators should always include questions about witnesses’ pets, as well as inquire about the reactions of birds, livestock, wild animals such as deer, and insects.

There is more to UFO phenomena than we can probably imagine, but with the help of the faithful family dog, perhaps we can gain a little more insight and knowledge into the nature of the phenomena. And if your big, strong dog is terrified to go outside, maybe you should stay in the house, too!
