The reporting witness was in a vehicle moving along Corunna Road when he had the feeling he was being watched on June 8, 2017.

“As we broke the tree line, I noticed three lights in the sky from this distance I was at,” the witness stated. “It looked to be no more than 70-80 feet between the three lights. As we drove by, my mother stopped the vehicle to gain a better view. I began feeling mortified and terror consumed me. The craft hovered ominously, making no sound, pulsating a flurry of colors.”

The witness yelled for his mother to begin driving again as he did not feel safe.

“As we drove, another five minutes or less had passed, and I began feeling I was being watched again. This time, another craft had appeared over the tree line shinning blue-green very intensely. It then changed shape as it got closer, still making no sound. I began feeling the dread again.”

They slowed down to get a better view of the craft.

“As it hovered, it stayed in position as we drove past. As with the previous craft, another five minutes or less had passed, then off in the same direction a small, white light from the horizon had grown from a dim white light to a star-sized object with red and blue and green and white flashing lights while still making no sound. We were the only ones on the road, so there was no background noise or disturbance. The two previous craft were a football field’s length away from us as we saw them no more than 50 to 100 feet above the ground hovering over trees.”

Witness allegedly captures military UFO chase video

A California witness at Landers reported that a group of people at a UFO conference watched and videotaped a military jet “chasing” two lights sources that may have been two independent objects, according to testimony in Case 84123 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The sighting occurred about 10 p.m. on May 21, 2017, at the conference in Joshua Tree, CA, that included one participant shooting video with night vision goggles.

“Luckily one of my participants caught this and many of our other sightings (from all three nights no less), with his black-and-white night vision video camera,” the witness stated. “His additional footage of some of the other incredible sightings will be posted at a future date once they are compiled.”

The witness described the event.

“At just before 10 p.m. (did not note exact time), some of my participants and I saw a large, amber-colored light low to the horizon just behind Giant Rock from where my whole group of about 50-plus people were gathered and using 15 pair of night vision goggles. A contingency of about 20 of us ran to get a better view of it. To the naked eye it appeared to be a large, orangish (amber) light, that, quoting some of the 20 people; ‘flew like a bumble bee.’”

One of the guests had a good look.

“One guest came running with a pair of the goggles in hand and got a good look at it. She said that through the goggles it looked like ‘a large diamond-shaped UFO.’ She drew a picture of it, attached here. This object then flew behind a small hill right behind the entire Sky Watch larger group. As those of us who ran off walked back to join the others, three military jets flew over in the direction of the object now gone from sight behind the hill. Some of us commented that if they were following it, meaning the jets, they were a few minutes too late.”

The group then heard the sound of a low flying jet from behind the hill.

“Suddenly clearing the top of the hill and right over our heads, came a very fast military jet chasing a faster, large, red-glowing light. The military jet had both red and white blinking strobe lights and glowing afterburners and was very loud as it flew directly above our heads. The large red light had no blinking lights and no sound at all. It became clear to all 50-plus witnesses, this was no jet. Those folks present who looked with the aid of the goggles said they were seeing either two lights, or one object with two light sources on it.”

The witness reviewed the video.

“After extensive review of the footage, I am nearly certain it shows two UFOs (fast moving lights), flying in perfect, locked tandem with one another. It appears you can see stars between them in the background, suggesting that these are two separate objects. As is usually the case, this footage, while incredible, does not do the sighting justice. The video is in black-and-white night vision, not full-color, naked-eye vision, and does not have any sound, so you are unable to hear the palatable excitement of 50-plus witnesses screaming and cheering.”

Witness in Ontario photographs “rectangular box-shaped” UFO

A witness in the town of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada can not identify a strange object photographed on July 11, 2017 from an apartment balcony. The witness described the object as “rectangular box-shaped,” and says the object hovered slowly overhead and at one point changed direction.

The witness submitted the report to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) earlier today, along with several pictures the witness took from the witness’ apartment balcony.

The witness claims to have spotted that object at about 4:15 pm. The witness described the object’s movement as “floating” or “sailing” overhead. When it got closer to the witness, the object changed direction. The witness said the object was about the size of a small vehicle, such as a Mini Cooper.

“It looked like a large, rectangular, metallic box,” explained the witness. “How it was airborne, and how it remained so, completely puzzled and mystified me.”

The witness titled the report: “Unidentifiable, 3D rectangular box-shaped object drifting very smoothly over the city.”

Here is the complete report, verbatim:

On July 11, 2017 at approximately 16:15 – 16:20 hrs., I witnessed an unidentifiable flying/floating object sailing over my area (East Hamilton, Ontario), from my apartment balcony. My balcony faces N/E, toward the bay of Lake Ontario. I stepped out to take a look at the construction crew tearing down an old high school across the road from my building, and to check on the current temperature, when this object caught my eye, drifting at first in my direction (fully south), coming from the north area of the city, closer to the lake. It was fairly large, and I estimated it to be almost the size of an Austin Mini Cooper car. It looked solid/3D, and was rectangular and box-like in shape. The colour was a dark grey, but parts of it appeared to be a lighter grey. It changed direction as it approached my area, turning left, and heading toward the town of Stoney Creek (south-east/east). My neighbourhood is on the border of Stoney Creek, and this object floated away over that town and out of sight. I captured a few photos of it with my mobile phone, but by the time I went into my apartment to get my phone and returned to the balcony with it, the object had moved further away, so the photos don’t show it very well. I had no idea what this object was when I first noticed it, or when it sailed past my location. It looked like a large, rectangular, metallic box. How it was airborne, and how it remained so, completely puzzled and mystified me. I was talking on my house phone (cordless handset) with a friend while all of this was going on, and I remember just laughing slightly when I first saw it, telling her, “Holy CRAP… there’s a UFO heading this way, and by that, I mean an unidentifiable flying object.” Then after it started to turn toward the east I said, “Well, now there’s a large metallic, rectanglar box just sailing past this neighborhood… gonna grab my phone and take some photos.” So I stepped inside, grabbed the phone, and took about a half-dozen photos, before it sailed too far away. I don’t know how to describe my feelings at the time, really… nothing extraordinary, because I had no idea what this object could be. I was just really puzzled/curious, more than anything, because I couldn’t figure out what it was. I’m still wondering about it, and would love to hear if anyone else happened to witness it too, and may have some idea of what it could be?!

The images do show a rectangular-shaped object in the sky. The slow movement would usually indicate something floating in the sky, such as a balloon, and party balloons do come in all shapes and sizes. Balloons do not often seem to make a change in directions, but it is possible if the wind changes direction. However, it is not immediately apparent what the object is.

The vast majority of UFO sightings turn out to be mundane objects, but once in awhile there are sightings that are much more difficult to explain. MUFON conducts investigations on sightings submitted to their website, and if they share their conclusions, we will let you all know. Meanwhile, others will likely chime in and we will try to keep you up to date with any discoveries. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the object in the comments below.

The incident occurred about 3:45 p.m. on November 20, 2016.

“I was driving home from work in Delphos,” the witness stated. “I looked up below the trees and saw a black and gray, or silver, squared, cubicle shape with the top right cut out about 8 to 10 feet in size – just hovering or vibrating.”

The witness saw the object hovering at the tree level. Pictured: Delphos, Ohio. (Credit: Google)

The next piece of the story is a mystery to the witness.

“I kept driving past it. And when I got home five minutes later, I asked myself why I didn’t turn back. It’s like I couldn’t.”

The witness is sure the object was not a known object.

“I know it wasn’t a drone or toy plane. It could have been military, but not sure. Or it looked like a pixel cube like in the movie, “Wreck-It Ralph.” Or could been a glitch-like movie, Matrix. I’m a normal, non-smoking guy and don’t drink much. I know what I saw was something real.”

The witness was watching from a backyard at 10:40 a.m. on March 6, 2017, when the incident began.

“One was hovering over the trees, in our direct view,” the witness stated.“The other was to our left, hovering over the trees to our left. My daughter and I both observed them. They flew in different directions as they left our back yard.”

The witness described the movements.

“One went up and to our left, mostly out of view. The other that was directly behind our house, flew straight upward, and it began to blink like a star, as it was nearly out of view. Both of the UFOs were blinking red and white lights as they were moving out of our view.”

The two objects moved away in two different directions. Pictured: Milton, Florida. (Credit: Google)

The witness was aware of one other UFO report at about the same time.

“Another male reported seeing two UFOs on Highway 87, in Milton, Florida, just an hour or two before. I thought it may have been military testing, due to our location. So the following day, I asked two people that were eating at a nearby restaurant, and were wearing military uniforms. The female suggested that we ask the male, who she stated was a part of Special Ops. I asked if there was testing going on in the area, and he said that if there was, he wouldn’t have that knowledge, but stated that I’m not the only one to have seen it, because he was listening to public radio the night before, and he heard reports of sightings, as well.”

The witness was southbound along Highway 67between Farmington and Cherokee Pass at 7 p.m. on March 3, 2017, when the incident began.

“I was basically in the middle of nowhere,” the witness stated.“There were no other cars around or any houses or lights that I could see – everything was basically pitch black.”

But something odd stood out in the distance.

“I saw three lights in a triangle shape hovering in the dark somewhat low over the road – lower than what you would expect an aircraft or something of that nature to hover. It was dark, so I couldn’t see any point of reference, but I imagine it was maybe at the height of a tall tree line or just above that. They were white, round-shaped lights that reminded me of parking lot lamps.”

The object was hovering directly over the roadway. Pictured: St. Francois County, MO. (Credit: Google)

The witness tried to see what the object looked like.

“I couldn’t see what they were attached to, but they were all level, like they were attached to the underside of some flat object. The lights themselves seemed maybe basketball-sized and the total size of the shape seemed like it would’ve been the size of a pickup truck, maybe a little bigger.”

The witness tried to imagine the object was a helicopter, but getting closer proved that theory wrong.

“It just didn’t look like that. It didn’t have blinking lights like planes normally do and it didn’t appear to be moving at all and it made no noise that I could hear.”

But getting closer, the witness could see that the lights did, in fact, look like they were attached to something.

“I got nervous, because I was about to pass underneath it, and couldn’t tell what it was, so I called a friend and told them what I was seeing, but they had no idea what it was either. I ended up just driving underneath/past it and that was it. I saw it in my review mirror for a bit too. In total, I probably saw it for a couple minutes. It was too dark to see trees or power lines or to tell what else the lights could be attached to.”

The witness had to pass directly under the object – which was hovering at the height of a tree line. Pictured: St. Francois County, MO. (Credit: Google)
