The witness watched the craft for just a few minutes on May 16, 2017.

“Craft was a solid, white object headed northeast of Hindman, Kentucky, at approximately 2:35-2:37 p.m.,” the witness stated.“Back of craft was completely transparent. Front of craft was white and came to a curved point like a football. The craft had no visible lights or trails coming from it.”

The sighting was very short.

“The craft was only visible for a few seconds before it seemed to just fade away. There were no clouds in the sky. At exactly 2:42 p.m. I saw an airplane following the same path and then another at 2:43 and another at 2:46.”

The witness reported that the object could have been as big as 300 feet. Pictured: Hindman, Kentucky. (Credit: Google)

Triangle UFO follows Washington witness

A Washington witness at Sunnyside reported a slow-moving, triangle-shaped object that followed his vehicle along a rural roadway, according to testimony in Case 83989 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness had just gotten off work and was driving home at 10:50 p.m. on May 25, 2017, when the incident began.

“I take the back roads home and got on Factory Road outside of Sunnyside, Washington,” the witness stated.“After about three minutes or so traveling down the road, I noticed an orange light near two red lights in a triangular pattern. The orange light was blinking.”

The witness immediately thought the object was a Chinook helicopter.

“I found it strange how low it was to the ground and the lack of sound. I also noticed it was traveling a bit fast to be a helicopter. It flew from south to north.”

The witness then thought that the object might be a drone.

“My speed was about 50 mph, though I was slowing down not wanting to get too close to the object. It crossed the road in front of me and then I proceeded to pass it. I found it to strange – it grabbed my curiosity. An oncoming car passed me, and once it did I pulled into a dirt driveway and turned around – doing a U-turn. I quickly drove back and found that it was out in the same area I had left it.”

The witness then slowed down in the middle of the road with no place to pull over.

“I simply stopped in the middle of road – now able to see a mile infront of me and behind me. I was facing west with my back to the east. It seemed to stop flying south and began to fly west.”

The witness quickly reached for his smartphone and pulled up the camera app.

“I began to record as I drew closer. This was when I noticed a white light, much like a star starting to fly down from above it and near the object. It quickly got my attention as it quickly stopped again and turned 90-degrees and flew south across the road again. Once it had done this, it began to fly west.”

The object was then flying parallel to the road and began to make the witness afraid.

“Though it stopped and then began to fly northwest from its location towards me, I became overwhelmed with fear knowing this wasn’t a plane or a helicopter. Having both my windows down, I would have heard something. I threw my phone in the passenger seat and began to speed off. As I began to pass it, I came as close as I ever was to the object.”

The witness described the object.

“It was a gray triangle, with three orange lights and one red, glowing light in the middle with two small, green lights near the rear. It was hovering. I am now driving back from where I had come from. Heading into Sunnyside on Factory Road. I reached a speed of 97 mph and quickly began to slow down. I felt safer near town, though, now that it was nearly 11 p.m. and no one would be around.”

But that safe feeling quickly dissolved.

“I turned left onto Handford Road, and before getting to Vakima Valley Highway, I turned left onto another road that was near a car dealership and stopped again to see if I could​ see the object. It was flying west again and was in the same light configuration as when I first saw it – with one blinking, orange light and two red ones. I watched it fly for a short time before it began to fly southwest and I didn’t want it getting too close again. I got back onto Handford Road and onto Yakima Valley Highway driving towards Grandview.”

But once the witness arrived home and got of his vehicle, he saw the craft again.

“It had followed me approximately six miles and was flying southeast, though, I did not turn and I watched it fly in that direction until it was out of sight. I thought about following it, but didn’t want to push my luck as I began to feel afraid again. When I reviewed the video I recorded, the object was not captured due to it being too dark outside, and had stop recording without me pressing pause as I passed the object.”

Sunnyside is a city in Yakima County, Washington, population 15,858.Washington MUFON State Director James Clarkson investigated and closed this case as an Unknown.

“I would point out this case was near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation,” Clarkson stated in his report. “Given the highly unusual shape and lighting configuration, and the lack of sound when the witness had parked his car with all of the windows down, I am classifying this case as a true UAV with a highly credible witness.”

Iowa witness recalls late night UFO close encounter

An Iowa witness at Millerton recalled a UFO incident from the early 90s where the object moved over his vehicle at one point and beamed light onto the vehicle, according to testimony in Case 83673 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness first thought the object was a helicopter. Pictured: Rural area near Millerton, Iowa. (Credit: Google)

“I can’t remember the exact year and day, but I know that it was between 1990 and 1992,” the witness stated.“It occurred in rural Wayne County, Iowa. I had two young sons at that time. One was around 2 or 3 and the other was 4 or 5 at the time. That’s why I can narrow down the time that it happened. I had been at some friend’s house in the Corydon area that evening. They had two sons the same age as mine and the kids played while we played cards for awhile.”

The hour was late and past the kid’s bedtime, so the witness left to go home.

“The boys fell asleep in the car not far down the road.I was driving eastbound on a county highway east of Millerton. It was between 9-10 p.m. I believe. I noticed a bright flash of light to my left. It was maybe 10 or 15 miles directly north of me hovering low in the night sky. It would flash a bright light every second.”

The witness watched the object instantly jump from one area of the sky to another. Pictured: Rural area near Millerton, Iowa. (Credit: Google)

The witness first thought the object was a helicopter – possibly life flight on its way to Corydon Hospital.

“I soon realized it wasn’t. I continued to glance over at it as I drove another mile or two. It just seemed to hang in the same spot. And the flashing light was just brilliant. Much brighter than any plane or helicopter.”

The witness decided to pull over on the shoulder to see what this object was.

“I drove a Pontiac Sunbird at that time and had the window rolled down while watching it. I shut off the lights and killed the engine. After a few minutes, I noticed the light was a bit brighter as if it had moved closer, yet I never saw it move. Then after another minute, it changed locations again. It was several miles closer to me. This thing moved so fast. It would hover motionless for a short while and then in the blink of an eye it would change locations. In a matter of minutes, it was approximately a half-mile north of me 50-75 feet above a crop field.”

At this point, the witness could see that the flashing light was actually a beam of light shining downward from the craft at about a 75-degree angle and making a full rotation approximately every second.

“I still couldn’t see the craft itself. Then it was suddenly a hundred yards due north hovering over the field. The brilliant beam of light shined all the way to the ground as it rotated in a wide circle. I’d never seen anything like it. It lit up the ground beneath it like daylight. You could see what looked like little dust particles in the light. It was weird. I thought for a moment that I should try to get out of there. But I was really intrigued with this thing. I still couldn’t make out the craft itself.”

The object eventually moved overhead and shown a beam of light into the witnesses’ vehicle. Pictured: Rural area near Millerton, Iowa. (Credit: Google)

Then in the next moment, the witness realized the craft was no longer there.

“No more beam of light, nothing. Before I could even think about it, the car filled with a brilliant flash of light for just a moment. It was almost blinding. There was a peculiar feeling in the air like static electricity that seemed to wash over me.”

The witness then craned his head out the window and looked up.

“Above me was a large area of blackness and I knew it was above me. It was silent. The light wasn’t shining from it. Then for just a little bit, the underneath of it lit up with a bunch of smaller, blinking lights.”

At this point the witness was able to make out the shape and size of it.

“It was larger than I thought. Probably 40-50 feet in diameter and hovered about 40-50 feet above me at maybe a 75-degree angle. If it had tilted to a vertical position, I think I could have touched it. It was the shape of a disc. I thought to myself, “My God. I can’t believe I’m seeing this.’

Then in an instant, the craft was a half mile away.

“With the light beam rotating back down at a 75-degree angle as before. And in the same way that it came to me it left. Hovering for short intervals before zipping to another spot miles away, leaving only a faint streak of light between the two points. It was going east and slightly north. At one point, I estimated it as being probably in the Ottumwa area. Eventually it got far enough away that I couldn’t distinguish it from a star. The last time I could see it flashing I would guess it was perhaps in the Fairfield/Mt. Pleasant area headed in the direction of Burlington.”

The witness was upset over the incident.

“I was pretty shaken by this whole thing and watched it go away partly because I wanted to be certain the thing wasn’t going to turn around and come back. It scared the crap out of me to be honest. The boys didn’t wake up, so they never knew it even happened. When I got home, I called my friend whose house I had been to earlier. He didn’t believe me. Then awhile later, he heard that others had seen something too and had called the sheriff and reported it. They were told that it was a helicopter. I explained to him that it wasn’t, and he sternly replied, ‘I don’t know what you saw, but don’t be telling people about it. They’ll think you’re nuts and throw you in a padded room.’  So I haven’t. For the past 25-plus years.”

Witness recalls attempting communication with UFO

A Missouri witness at Mexico recalled a UFO incident from 1977 when she and her then 10-year-old son encountered an object following them along a rural roadway, according to testimony in Case 83874 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and her son noticed a ‘fiery image’ just ahead of them that could not be identified. Pictured: Mexico, Missouri. (Credit: Google)

The incident occurred during the summer of 1977 – approximately June 17.

“I was returning home after driving to a nearby town 30 miles away to see the movie, “Chariots of the Gods.” It was approximately between 9-10p.m. CST. I was driving on a blacktop road rather than the highway since it was a shorter way to get home. As I was driving north, I noticed ahead of me, and to the left of the road,a fiery image about treetop level and I mentioned to my son that it must be a barn on fire.”

About two minutes later, the witness reached a curve in the road.

“The fiery image moved from its location left of the road and instantly appeared on the right side of the road. I knew then it was a UFO due to how quickly it maneuvered direction. I was then driving east with the UFO following me to my right – about 100 feet higher than my van – and it stayed maybe two car lengths ahead of me. The UFO seemed to be traveling the same speed as I was, which by then I had probably slowed to about 40 mph.”

The object moved just ahead of the car and kept pace with it. Pictured: Mexico, Missouri. (Credit: Google)

The witness continued to watch the object.

“After about 30-45 seconds of following us, it instantaneously appeared about one-quarter mile ahead and to the left side of the road. It was stopped and hovered above a grove of trees.”

Since the object had stopped, the witness did not want to keep driving.

“There was a house there, so I pulled into someone’s driveway and thought about going up to their door to let them know of the UFO so people wouldn’t think I was just making it all up. But figured, as sure as I did, it would disappear. My son thought I should keep driving, but I told him I didn’t want to be abducted or have my car engine fail.”

As the object hovered, the witness was able tomake out the shape and a few features.

“It was disc-shaped with a seemingly darker band around the center of it and a lot of fire from the underneath. Either the flames below were so bright that they illuminated the craft or the moonlight was such that I couldn’t get a good view of it (or both).”

After about four to five minutes of wondering what to do, the witness decided to attempt to communicate with the object.

‘I said, ‘I know that you can hear me because you all are a lot more intelligent and advanced than we are, so please just go on and leave us alone.’”

After about 10 seconds, the UFO moved away at “lightning speed in an upward and south-easterly direction” anddisappeared from view.

“The entire time of the sighting, I encountered no traffic in either direction. However, as soon as it disappeared, there was traffic again. The image of the UFO actually looked a lot like the spaceship image on the album cover of the band “Boston’s” first album in 1976. I have since regretted that I didn’t try to make better communication because I would like to communicate with them. Evidently, they were seeking me out, but I just had no idea of their intent.”

Virginia witness recalls multiple UFOs in night sky

A Virginia witness at Colonial Heights recalled a UFO encounter from the 60s when one large object emitted multiple, smaller objects, according to testimony in Case 84050 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness first saw a bright light in the sky. Pictured: Richmond Avenue, a half block east of the Boulevard. (Credit: Google)

“I was probably about 15 or 16 years old at the time,” the witness stated.“I don’t remember wearing a heavy winter coat, so I believe this happened during a fair-weather month. Probably autumn. I lived on Richmond Avenue in Colonial Heights, about half a block east of the Boulevard. When I saw the object in the sky, I called two neighbor kids out to watch it with me.”

The sighting was in early evening around 7 or 8 o’clock – not long after dark.

“The entire time period of the sighting lasted for about 20 to 30 minutes. The object appeared to be a very bright star, approximately east-northeast of the intersection of Richmond Avenue and the Boulevard. At the time, I believed the bright light to be over the Fort Lee Airstrip. However, there was no way of knowing just how far or near the object was. Also, there was no sound.”

The witness watched as many, smaller objects moved out of the larger object. Pictured: Richmond Avenue, a half block east of the Boulevard. (Credit: Google)

The witness described the sighting.

“There was a very bright light that looked exactly like a star in the sky. As time passed, a small light slowly left the bright light and appeared to come forward and to the right side of the main light. After a minute or two, another small light slowly left the object and came forward and to the left side of the main object. This continued until there were about 11 objects in the sky.”

The main object’s brightness seemed to change during the event.

“When each light left the main light, the main light lost some of its brightness. At the point where all the small lights were in the sky, the main light was no brighter than the smaller objects. After a minute or two, the small lights slowly went back and joined the main object. It was almost as if they went back exactly in reverse of how they came away from the main object. Eventually all the small lights rejoined the main light and as each one rejoined the main light, the main light became brighter until it was very bright again. Then the object moved away in an Easterly direction until it became so dim that it disappeared from sight.”

Colonial Heights is about 23 miles south of Richmond, VA. (Credit: Google)

The witness wondered if there was a simple solution to what was seen.

“The only way I can imagine anyone duplicating what we saw would be if they lined up 11 helicopters in a line east to west. Then turned on their searchlights. Then kept the front of each helicopter facing west. Then left the line one at a time and moved away from the line. Then hovered for about a minute after all the other helicopters moved out to take similar positions. Then moved back into formation without turning around. Then backed away until they went out of sight. Likely? I think not. Was this a UFO? I don’t know, but I cannot explain what we saw in any logical way. As far as I’m concerned, it was a UFO and because of it I find it easy to believe others when they say they have seen a UFO.”

Louisiana witness animates hovering disc UFOs

A Louisiana witness at Lafayette County reported watching two, disc-shaped objects with binoculars that disappeared into a dark cloud, according to testimony in Case 84059 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was outside looking at clouds at 5 p.m. on May 27, 2017, at a 45-degree angle to the north using binoculars.

“And as soon as I got the focus, there they were – two UFOs,” the witness stated. “One on top the other and in close proximity to each other. The one underneath the other was moving left to right from side-to-side in a straight pattern, while the other one hovered above it.”

The witness had a feeling the objects were trying to communicate.

“I kind of got the feeling the bottom one was using the craft to wave at me, as to say, ‘Hey, here we are!’ As it was moving side-to-side as in someone would move their hand to wave.”

The witness described the objects.

“These were both saucer-shaped and were a black or dark gray color and both had lights in the front that pulsated back and forth like the Knight Rider car, but only much slower. The color of the lights from my perspective was red on the left, blue in the middle and either yellow or white on the right. I couldn’t make out the size because I couldn’t see them with the naked eye, only through the binoculars. I was using a Redfield brand that was 10 x 50. But they were clear as day to see the shape, color and what they were doing.”

Watch the animated video the witness produced to depict the sighting.

The witness put the binoculars down to see if he could see them with his eyes, but they were too far away.

“But as soon as I looked back in the binoculars, I could see them again. I was hoping to get video footage, as I kept watching for about 30 seconds, a dark cloud was moving toward that area where they were. That’s when I told my wife to go inside and hurry to grab my phone. I was going to try and film it through the binoculars, but by the time the dark cloud got to where they were, I couldn’t see them anymore. The cloud seemed to stay there for a while, which I found strange and maybe even thought something was behind the cloud like a mother ship using a cloud cloaking device, because after it finally cleared up in that area, I couldn’t see the other craft again. I stayed out all that day and hooked up my phone to record through the binoculars, but didn’t see them again.”
