Witness sees lights and object over train tracks in Rome, Georgia

MUFON Case #   22567
Date/Time:    03/29/2010 20:40
Location:    Rome, Georgia
Shape:    Blimp,Circle,Oval
Duration:    00:05:00
Distance:    100 feet or less
Area:        Town
Terrain:    Hills
Visibility:    Partly Cloudy
Summary:    sighted a bright glow which turned to one red one green light 30-40foot above road

I was driving. Turned off of Hwy 101 south onto Alabama Hwy heading into Rome.

I saw what I thought was a bright star and as I got closer it got brighter. I then realized that it was cloudy and that there were no other stars around.

I focused on the light that was stationary and it brightened then turned off... immediately I saw a red light on the left side and a green light on the right side. I knew that there was a RR crossing up ahead and assumed it was a train, however when i arrived at the RR crossing the was no train but instead an almost spherical object floating about 3 yards past the crossing and about 30foot in the sky.

I immediately called my husband in tears because I knew that what I was seeing wasn't "right". I was crying in fear when I told him what I was looking at. I passed directly under the object and could see there circular shaped on the bottom.
I pulled over into the old Coosa Middle School parking lot in an effort to take a pic/video with my camera phone.

There were no lights on the back side and by time I could get my window down it shot off toward the mountains were it turned around again to where the red and green light were showing then with a flash it was gone.

I am still creeped out and afraid to drive home from work tonight!

Bright Lights Seen Again Over Ohio

MUFON Case # 22561
Date/Time: 03/29/2010 01:00
Location: Ottawa or Lima, Ohio
Description: Bright lights in sky, hovering about 5 miles N-NW of Columbus Grove

This is the 2nd time I've seen these lights. I wouldn't have filed a report but I did a quick search for Ohio and recent sightings and found more than one news story, in particular from Euclid, Ohio, that match what I've been seeing exactly.

The lights at first glance appear to be plane or helicopter lights. In fact, the first time I saw them, I didn't even give them a second look. That was on March 23 at approximately 11:30pm. I only thought it was something strange when I went out later that evening at 12:30am and saw the same lights in about the same position. I watched them for quite awhile and attempted to video tape them (which I do have), but the tape only reveals fuzzy lights so it's not worth much.

The lights stayed there for another 30 minutes until my curiosity got the better of me so I got into my car and drove toward them as best as I could. As I left town, I seemed to be getting closer to the lights and they were actually closer than I initially thought since they didn't in line with the stars and horizon as a distant object would. Just as I noticed I was getting closer, that's all the closer I was able to get. In fact, the lights moved relatively quickly away from me toward the east. I tried driving as fast as I could to catch up and drove about 60 - 70 mpg for about 10 minutes and could not catch up. I turned around and the lights were gone a few minutes later.

The lights I saw tonight (the 29th) were exactly the same lights. The difference is that I saw them to the Northwest of Columbus Grove instead of the East (March 23). I watched the lights for more than an hour and tried video taping them but again, the video camera couldn't get a good focused video. I tried using the 60x zoom on it and a couple times I did get a clear glimpse, but the lights just appeared as , well, lights.

the lights were white and blue. Truly, I would have thought they were helicopter lights but they hovered in approximately the same spot for hours and there was no noise at all. I didn't want to waste gas so I didn't chase them this time.

Again, the Euclid sighting seems to match what I saw exactly.

* * *
Note: Could this witness have seen landing lights on a jet or helicopter? Well, I don't know any jets that can hover like that, or even helicopters that can hover in one spot for more than a few minutes. Having a helicopter mechanic in the family gives me a edge on exactly what helicopters can do, and this does not fit my idea of conventional aircraft.

I also feel the need to add that driving 70-90 mph chasing lights at night is not recommended. It only takes one large animal in the roadway to spoil your whole week, month, or maybe a lifetime.

The best thing to do is to call friends or relatives in another location and ask them to look for the light(s). If at all possible, between several individuals you may be able to triangulate the object's location. Someone else may also be able to get a good photo or video of it. -SW

The Euclid Lights

Video Link

*        *        *

By Roger Marsh, UFO Examiner

The objects reported nightly over Lake Erie skies at Euclid, Ohio, are incoming jet traffic from Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport, according to Ohio Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Field Investigator Tom Wertman.

Wertman was reached by telephone late Thursday for a final disposition on the case.

Euclid, OH, resident Eugene Erlikh, 20, originally reported unusual objects out over Lake Erie that were appearing in the same spot night after night. The story was picked up by Fox News, Cleveland; and also by MSNBC.

The network stories brought the case to the attention of Ohio MUFON and Wertman was assigned to move to the site and have a look for himself.

Wertman, like many other ufologists who called or wrote to the UFO Examiner on this case were suspicious of the case from the beginning. The suspicion, they say, is when a sighting repeats itself in the same spot over many nights. Ufologists seem to agree that sightings like this generally have a natural or manmade ending.

Wertman specifically tracked lights from the same area where Erlikh says he was seeing lights. The two even spoke on the telephone, with Wertman outside and nearby. Erlikh was talking on the telephone from inside his high rise apartment.

"I was with him on the phone the other night," Wertman said, "and he described the exact same lights that we were both looking at. As each object came out, we matched the same time frames. He even went back at the end of the night and reviewed the three major sightings of the night. And all three were a match. The only difference was our watches, but the time frames were the same."

After Wertman was sure that the lights he was seeing were the same that Erlikh was seeing, his investigation began.

Wertman began comparing the movement of the lights to incoming air traffic at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport. In addition, Wertman was using a computer to track incoming flights in real time.

On one of those evenings, Wertman and Erlikh had agreed on the three objects.

Wertman said the first object was a flight coming in from Chicago.

"Once spotted over Lake Erie, the object stayed relatively stationary for about two minutes," Wertman said, "then a second light popped up at thumb's length (if held at arm's length) from the first one. The flight tracking software was then showing a second flight coming in behind the first."

The data from the flight tracking web site was matching what Wertman was seeing.

"The first object appeared at about 8:40 p.m.. The light appeared in the northwest at 300 degrees at approximately 5 degrees above the horizon. It was a short time later - one to two minutes later - a second object appeared beside the first one. And holding my thumb at arm's length - the two objects were a thumb's width apart."

"The intensity of the second light was the same as the first. The web site used to track the air traffic showed two aircraft in that same area. The first was coming from Chicago. A short time later a third light appeared. One of the first lights was moving, getting dim, and moving toward the southwest. The second light was still stationary and it gave the appearance of hovering. It appeared to be stationary or hovering for about 3 to 4 minutes."

Cleveland airport is southwest of Erlikh's location.

"The web site was now showing that the first plane from Chicago would land then at 8:44 p.m. The second aircraft landed at 8:49 p.m. That was evidently the two planes that were close together."

Each object moved from the lake area to the southwest and toward the airport, matching the arrival time of the flights.


Wertman said he is marking this one - case closed. "It's air traffic for Cleveland-Hopkins," Wertman said. "The flights take a swing out over the lake where they can, at times, appear to be stationary. Then they move, one by one, to the southwest and into position to land - and right on time - according to the flight data available on the web."

Can someone mistake lights in a night sky for something anomalous? Happens all the time, according to ufologists.

Wertman said he was talking with Erlikh during one of the investigation evenings, when Erlikh shouted, "Did you see that? An F-16 just flew over my building."

But Wertman, standing just outside Erlikh's building, had seen what had just gone over his building at between 1,500 to 2,000 feet above the building. "I corrected him and told him it was a small business jet. Most likely landing at nearby Burke Lakefront Airport."

And by the way, Tom Wertman was just named Ohio State Section Director by State Director William Jones. Congratulations, Tom.

Note: While some lights can easily be explained, others cannot. Not every light in the sky has an airplane or helicopter attached to it. Not all sightings are the space station; other types of satellite; the space shuttle; man-made rockets; weather balloons; flock of birds; Venus; swamp gas; meteor; etc.

If after you have run through all other explanations and still can't determine what the object is, you have what is known as an "unidentified flying object".

Keep watching the skies.

Report Of Possible Abduction Leading To Lifelong Illness

A report submitted to MUFON tells of an encounter with a red orb, possibly a craft of unknown origin, which the witness thinks may have caused a lifelong neurological illness.

MUFON Case #   22514
Date/Time:    06/16/1977 00:00
Location:    Riverside, California
Shape:    Oval
Distance:    20 feet or less
Description:    on 91 freeway, craft flew a couple of feet above my car, lost track of time, was sick for three years after that.

I and a friend went to a BBQ at my sisters house in Riverside california. We left the BBQ around midnight. My friend was driving and I was in the passenger seat with my head against the window, dozing. We were driving down the 91 freeway in Riverside, in the slow lane, headed towards the 57 freeway to Costa Mesa, where we lived.

As we were driving, I noticed the sign on the freeway said we were at Weir Canyon. As it was a Saturday night, there was alot of traffic on the freeway. I closed my eyes and began to relax for the long ride home.

As I began to doze, a distinct thought came to my mind. The thought said, "Turn your head and look out the window." I turned my head, and I saw a red "ball shaped" object that looked like it was perhaps 20 to 30 feet away from me.

As we were in the slow lane, there was nothing beyond that but the shoulder of the freeway. No houses, no lights, just barren fields, completely dark. I thought the red ball odd, as I had traveled that freeway many times and that area is totally undeveloped. Nothing there.

As we drove, I noticed the ball was keeping up with us. I didn't say anything at the moment to the driver. I just watched it. Finally I said, "Why don't you speed up a little." She did and the ball kept up. I strained to look at it, to see if it was a reflection of some kind, possibly from our own car. I said to her, Now slow down a little, so she slowed the car, and the ball was still right with us.

She asked what I was doing, and I told her about the ball. She looked and saw it too. She pulled over on the shoulder and stopped. We got out to look at it, and it disapeared. I figured it was a reflection. So I took the wheel this time, and waited for the traffic to move ahead so I could get out in the lane.

This time, I moved to the center lane, turned on the radio and began to cruise home. All of a sudden, I saw what looked to me like white car lights coming toward me in my lane. I called her attention to it, and she became frightened. It looked exactly like a potential head on collision. I looked to my right and left, to see if I could move in to another lane to get away from it, but the traffic was heavy on both sides and in back of me. I couldn't move in any direction. I layed on the horn, the lights were comming closer, I couldnt change lanes.

This all happened in a split second, or so it seemed to me. I slammed on my brakes, knowing I would surely get hit from behind. I brought my knees up behind the wheel and covered my face with my hands, waiting to be hit from the back and head on. I waited, but nothing happened.

When I uncovered my face, I saw that the lights in front of me in my lane, was not in my lane at all, but "above" my lane. I watched it moving slowly. I could see the front of it. It was arch shaped in the front, like a horseshoe shaped bumber, with a purplish hue around it and three huge lights under it. It moved slowly over my car, and I turned to watch through the back window and saw it move slowly away. It was enormous.

I opened the door and got out. There was no sound from the craft, no sounds of any kind. At that moment, I noticed there was no traffic on the freeway. It was completely empty. There was no one.

I took the keys to start the car, and realized I had not shut it off when I slammed it in to park, yet it was off. I started the car and sped off, scared to death, running red lights all the way home.

When I got home, I looked at the clock. It was 4:30 in the morning. I couldn't understand why it was so late. I was tired and confused. I went to bed.

When I woke up the next morning, I didnt feel well. I told a neighbor about what I saw. He said "Lets go back tonight, and see if we can see something." Fear shot through me. I didn't want to go, but they razed me until I went.

As we traveled down the same freeway, we came up to weir canyon again. I noticed there was aprox 50 cars pulled over on the shoulder, with people standing outside their cars, looking up. We did the same thing. There must have been a thousand of those red balls darting back and forth, flying around, like playing tag with each other. Then suddenly an enormous white light, just popped on in the middle of the sky. The crowd gasp, and then the light went off again.

I jumped in to the car and drove down the freeway to the next underpass and got off, going to the gas station at the bottom. I asked the gas attendant there if there was an airport near. He said there was. IT was a light plane airport not far from there.

I decided to go there to check it out, but before I could go, a huge white helicopter, with blacked out windows, flew over the overpass and hovered over my car. It looked like military, but I couldn't be sure. The blades were kicking up dust so bad, I couldn't hardly keep my eyes open, but I did see the pilot clearly. It hovered over my car for several minutes, then it flew off in the direction I had just come from. I knew this was no mistake, no coincidence. This all had something to do with what I had seen the night before.

I went to the airport and watched the planes coming in and out for over an hour. No way was there anything there that even remotely resembled what I saw on either night.

After that, I went home, and went to work the next morning. I wasnt feeling well, so I decided to make a doctors appointment. I went the following day. They did some test, and bloodwork.

When I left the doctor, I couldnt find my car in the parking lot. It took me over an hour to find it. Once I got in, I had forgotten how to start the car. When I finally got it started I got lost on the way to work. When I finally got there to pick up my friend, my shift was over and we went home. She said she felt sick too. She cried for three days, not knowing why. I asked her what was wrong, she said she didnt know. She just cried, she suffered severe depression which was unusual for her.

I went to work and found I couldn't remember how to operate my machine. I had trouble walking, as my gate was completely off. To make a long story short, over approx a months time, I slowly and surely deteriorated, little by little. I lost my job, my car, and my home, as I got sicker and sicker, becoming incapable of supporting myself.

I developed a stutter that I had never had before in my life. My head and neck tilted to the right and was unable to straighten it. My doctor said for some reason, my autonomic nervous system was shot. I did not tell him what happened that night, as I believed he would think I was crazy.

I was sick like that, and on medications for three years. It took three years for me to re-learn how to drive again. It has been years now, and although I am able to work, It has been a hard climb up. I still have lingering disabilities from this.

All these years, I have been looking for anyone who witnessed what I saw those two nights. I have been looking for answers, and have found nothing.

I watched a documentary the other night and learned of your organization, which is why I'm writing you now.

I have no photos of it. I have blogged for years to try to find anyone at all who saw what I saw. I have had no luck. Today, I still have memory problems in that I still have no sense of direction, and can get lost in my own neighborhood. My walking gate never got better, and I still stutter from time to time. I don't know what happened to me, but something sure did.

Would it be detrimental to our society, to know that truth now?  That decision may one day soon be out of the government's hands. - SW

Four Large Pulsing Lights Seen Near Strawn, Texas - March 3, 2010

This witness was near Strawn, in Palo Pinto County, Texas, when he saw large pulsing lights in the sky ahead of his truck.
Strawn is quite near the Stephenville/Dublin area, where major sightings have occurred since January, 2008.

Note: This report contains spelling corrections.  To read the original report, click on the case number.

MUFON Case #   22464
Date/Time:    03/03/2010 20:10
City:    Strawn
Region:    Texas
Shape:    Circle
Distance:    One mile or less
Summary:    Rural Palo Pinto County UFO Sighting

I was coming out of a oilfield lease in rural Palo Pinto county.  A few miles to the east of the hohertz road area I spotted 4 large lights pulsing in the night sky ahead of my truck.  They were about 1/4 of a mile away and maybe 300 ft. above the ground.I continued to travel in the direction of the lights but they disappeared.

There were no signs of any aircraft in the area.This is was my second sighting in 7 days.Closer than my last sighting.Same horizontal pulsing lights that seem to vanish when I'm about to take a photo with my phone.

I've been working nights my whole life. There is something strange going on out there lately. This is something I have never seen before. I've seen about everything you could see in the night sky and could explain most of it.

Photo of UFO Near Ciast Guard Helicopter

MUFON Case #   22457
Event Date:    02/20/2010 09:39
City:    Fall River
Region:    Massachusetts
Shape:    Disc
Duration:    00:05:00
Distance:    Over one mile
Location:    City
Terrain:    River
Visibility:    Clear
Summary:    Shot photo of UFO in distance while taking photos of Coast Guard helicopter.

On February 20, 2010, at 9:39 AM, my toddler son and I were walking on the boardwalk at Fall River Heritage State Park, Fall River MA. We saw a US Coast Guard helicopter fly directly overhead very low to the ground along the edge of the Taunton River, heading north. Because my son loves helicopters, I took my digital camera out and started photographing it.

As I was shooting photos, the helicopter turned west and accelerated quickly across the river toward Somerset, MA. I saw an object in the distance, moving at a steady speed in a northbound direction. One of my photos captured this object. At first, although I did notice it, I didn't pay it much attention, assuming it might be a plane departing TF Green Airport in Providence RI. The object continued to fly in a northerly direction until it was out of sight past the treeline along the river.

However, when I uploaded the photos to my computer, I looked at the one of this object and noticed that it doesn't appear to have wings or a tail section. I showed my wife and several friends, and all agreed that although the object is difficult to see clearly due to its distance, it does not in fact appear to have wings or a tail.

The first attached photo is the original unedited photo. I was standing on the aforementioned State Park boardwalk, facing west. The second photo is cropped and zoomed to show the helicopter and object relative to each other.

MUFON Case # 22400
Event Date:    06/22/2009 21:44
Nearest City:    Flagstaff
Region/State:    Arizona
Summary:    glowing oddities in flight

I was vacationing all around Arizona in 2009. We stopped to camp at a secluded place called Ashurst Lake, where I began taking pictures. I didn't see these in the sky when I was snapping pictures, but saw them when I brought my camera home to view photos on my computer. The image is exactly as it was taken, nothing was done to the photograph.

To see the original photo (BMP), click here.

*        *        *
Note:  the objects at first appear to be geese, or large birds of some sort but birds do not reflect light in this manner.  Also, they would have to be quite large in comparison to the land masses below.
I might also note that geese do not have an exhaust/contrail.  I guess sometimes they do but it's made up of fecal material, drops rapidly and is quite annoying.  Ask any statue.

So what are the objects in the photo?  I would have to say, at least for the moment they remain unidentified.

Entity Or UFO?

Star Trek- The Next Generation: "Crystalline Entity"

MUFON Case #  22378
Event Date:   03/19/ 2010 13:00
City:    North Fork
Region:    Idaho
Country:    US
Longitude:    -113.878
Latitude:    45.3985
Shape:    Other
Distance:    One mile or less
Summary:    A very unusual shape U.F.O. preceded by F-15 fighter jet

I live in the mountains of Central Idaho. This morning, 3/19/10, at approximately 11:20, five F-15 Eagle fighters flew over our place (located in a narrow mountain canyon/valley)from south to north.

Fighter aircraft are not unusual here, as training flights from Mountain Home A.F.B. are all too frequent. What was unusual was both the number of planes and the flight pattern. Normal flight training flight patterns here are east to west or vice-versa, and generally consist of two planes. This morning, they flew from the south to the north, and there were five aircraft rather than two.

At approximately 1300 hours, I heard the fighters again and went outside to look. There were none in view, but the sound of the engines was clearly audible. As I scanned the sky (partly cloudy, surface wind from the west at about 10 m.p.h., temperature 44 degrees) looking north, I noticed something unusual hovering above top of the slope. The approximate distance to the object would have been 300 yards.

The object was shaped like a previous year, dead "Tumble Mustard" plant, with multiple "branch-like" protrusions from a central stem pointing upward at approximately 45 Degrees. The difference was that this object was effectively white rather than brown, almost to the point of being translucent, nor was there any frost remaining on any plants in the area after 9:00 this morning. Further, the object appeared to be between 15-20 feet high and hovering in place about 30 feet above the ground, rather than being pushed to the east by the winds. Tumble mustard is 3 feet tall at maturity. This was not a flying weed.

The object began to slowly ascend to the west, then southwest until its position had shifted from the original spot of observation by approximately 90 degrees. This movement took about 30 seconds. It then ascended at a rapid pace virtually straight up, slightly to the west, and disappeared from view after about three seconds. All of this movement was both into the wind and clearly exhibited the gaining of altitude.

Upon first sighting the object, I thought probably the same thing anyone else would have. "What the hell is that?" I am about as outdoorsy a person as you can get - hunting, fishing, hiking, gardening, as well as my entire work-life being spent outdoors. I have seen many things blown into the sky by winds, but nothing like this and nothing of such a shape that went against the direction of the wind gaining in elevation the entire time, none the less disappearing from view in mere seconds. Truthfully, I'm not very pleased with the whole event and for approximately 15 minutes immediately afterwards, I was just a bit rattled. I cannot logically explain what I saw.

*        *        *

Was this some type of craft or probe, or could it have been some life form yet unknown to us?  Still more questions and so few answers.


Man recounts how he and an FBI Agent saw a UFO In Richmond, VA

It is quite evident by this letter submitted to MUFON, that the witness waited some time before reporting this event.

MUFON Case #   22385
Event Date:    09/27/2001 23:00
City:    Richmond
Region:    Virginia
Country:    US
Longitude:    -77.4652
Latitude:    37.5168
Shape:    Square/Rectagular
Summary:    UFO alongside Interstate 95


July 22, 2008

Dear Sir:

I have been a little hesitant to report a sighting two friends and I had some time back. This sighting took place on Thursday night September 27, 2001. I might also add that one of the friends with me was an active FBI agent and also the driver of the vehicle.

We were coming out of Richmond, Virginia at 11:00 PM on the above date when we approached exit 58 on the southbound side of Interstate 95. On one side to the west is state route 150 with high tension electrical lines on the east running parallel to I-95 and (under construction at the time) to the west is Interstate 895 overpass.

We sighted a very odd flying object going from west to east. What was strange about this is that the object had come in UNDER the electrical lines and was lit up in very bright white lights. The shape was that of a sailor’s cap. This object couldn’t have been 75 feet overhead. The vehicle was maybe 25 feet square and10-12 feet tall. We had pulled onto the side of the road to watch this spectacle which had also attracted the attention of several vehicles on the northbound side of I-95.

The object hovered over the roadway’s columns for a few minutes and then very slowly headed east with absolutely no sound. We had a clear view for probably 8-10 minutes.

I have seen pictures of lots of different shapes of UFOs, but I have never seen or heard of anything like this. Do you have any ideas? We didn’t have a camera or video camera to take pictures of this.

All three of us have discussed this several times and agree to what we saw. All three of us are over 50 were not hallucinating, on drugs, or drinking, just normal family men.

Summary:    motionless airborne cigar shaped object above hilltop.
Wife and I observed object above wooded hilltop on east side of NY Rt16 while driving south on NY Rt 16. Object was silver/white in color with slightly darker horzontal line running entire length. Ends of object were rounded.

Object appeared totally motionless perhaps 200-300 ft above hilltop. Distance between our vehicle (road) and hilltop is about 3000 linear ft. I would guess that the object's dimensions were perhaps 15-20 feet in height and 100 feet in length.

There were no clouds in the sky, and the object appeared to be solid and constant against blue sky.
At first I thought it was perhaps some type of balloon, but it was totally motionless on breezy day.
We drove on, I was driving but my wife kept constant visual on object until we passed a grove of trees near road which obscured her vision for 10 seconds. After we cleared tree obstruction, object was gone.

Bright Orbs-Lights Seen Over Nevada & California

Bright orbs and lights witnessed near Rachel, Nevada by a couple on March 15, 2010, then two nights later multiple witnesses claim to possibly have seen the same objects.

Note: These reports have not been altered, no corrections.

MUFON Case # 22361
Event Date:    03/15/201000:00
Location:    Rachel, Nevada
Longitude:    0.0
Latitude:    0.0
Shape:    Fireball,Star-like,Other
Distance:    One mile or less
Summary:    Balls of light, Fire or amber colored, disappeared and reappeared getting closer to us

On March 15, my wife and I had just visited the Little A Le Inn on Highway 375 in Rachel Nevada. We left and drove back down 375 and pulled off the road just about a mile past Mailbox Rd. I believe the time may have been approximately 9:00-10:00 p.m. (PST). In one of the videos my wife mentions 12:00 Central time; this was the end of the sighting. I parked the vehicle at more or less a forty-five degree angle to the road with the headlights pointed towards the glow of Las Vegas in the sky. This glow also illuminated the mountains and landscape (silhouette etc.).
We had pulled off the road to see the stars in the remote sky; we were not there to catch a sighting (13 years married with no break from the kids-type trip). We were in a hurry to get back to Vegas but decided to stop along 375. We initially left the car running and lights on with my wife sitting in the passenger seat. I left the car and came around to her side and proceeded to watch the horizon. Once we both saw how many stars there was I told her to turn off the car and step out with me. We had both been standing there for just a few minutes trying to get both the digital cameras and the video camera to pick up what we saw. Just then I noticed a bright object (not a shooting star) high up in the sky headed towards Vegas.

This object was very small or very high but did not exhibit normal characteristics of a plane. There were no flashing strobes or sound from engines etc. This object being small, and disappearing quickly, did not really grab my attention. However, moments later from the same direction the object disappeared from came two lights flashing. They seemed motionless and as if they were affixed to each other. In other words it seemed that they were attached by a bar or direct line etc. They flashed for a while before I even considered pointing the camera at them. There are many cattle crossing lights of similar color along 375. It finally dawned on me that those lights had to be miles away and could not possibly be the same type of lights; these lights were much brighter and intense.

I pointed the video camera at the objects and could not pick them up until I turned on night shot. The two larger lights were very visible; in addition to this were two other smaller lights that could not be seen with the naked eye. We watched these objects move from left to right going in the direction of Rachel. As the two primary objects (PO) moved in this direction you could see other smaller lights moving around them. They would zip from one point to another. As they shot away their illumination would dim. In all probability, there were probably more objects out there than we captured or even saw. I based this on the fact that after watching the video, you can see objects you could not see with the naked eye.

The PO traveled from the direction of Vegas until they were almost perpendicular with 375 before we lost sight of them. We waited for a few more minutes and then decided to leave. We had only gone about a mile or two when my wife screamed “there they are again”. This time the PO were only a few miles from us (I am guessing about this, their contrast in the night sky made this hard to tell but they were definitely very close to us). In the video I try to use the ground as both a reference and to help make the camera focus as it should. As you will see in the video, based on the ground etc. it seems that they were right on top of us but I could not figure out why we were not being dowsed by the light. Also, I did not see any report of this light on the ground. It was as if the light did not travel or radiate like normal lights. This was very strange for something so bright and intense.

The PO made very slow movements. The additional smaller objects seemed to jet around the larger ones and were more agile. In one of the videos I think I see something like electricity or sparks coming from the PO. Now the strangest thing was that the PO seemed to merge with each other right before they “blinked” off or out. Also, strange is that I heard my wife say they are gone but she says this at least a second or two before they “blink” out again on the camera (not sure why there was a delay between her eyes and the camera). In the stills there seems to be a structure present.
As far as feelings went, I think we were just in amazement of the objects. When they reappeared closer to us the second time I think we were both a little frightened. It seemed to be checking us out. We got a little more worried about the remote location and the fact that there were other objects moving around the PO. I do believe that if we stayed there, the objects would have come closer. I had no feeling whatsoever that the event was over with when we left. These objects were clearly doing something related to that general locale. We decided to leave based on the fact that each time the lights went off, they came back on closer.

I am not sure how to answer the radio button at the bottom of this screen. What third parties are you referring to? All I am really seeking is if someone knows what these images are and just how close they were to us. I will submit the videos after speaking to someone in person via phone.

MUFON Case # 22369
Event Date:    03/17/2010 19:30
Location:    Leggett, California
Longitude:    -123.697
Latitude:    39.8526
Shape:    Triangle,Other
Distance:    One mile or less
Terrain:    Mountains
Summary:    seven UFO'S,three witnesses,four hours

On the night of March 17th at 7:30 myself and two others were out looking at the sky when we noticed a bright orb peek up over the horizon directly in front of us it was bright white and at arms length it was the size of a pea. I got out my night vision goggles and looked through them. Off to the right of it there was another orb that hung in the air and swayed back and forth in a swooping motion about a half inch on each side from the point where it was stationary. As it was doing that another orb came from above it and moved into position above the first orb and right next to a dimmer one over the horizon. They made a triangle. As we watched them they all twinkled at different times. It looked to me like they were communicating with one another.

At 8:50 Paula pointed out two orbs to our imiediate right. One was amber and the other red. The amber orb was in front of the red orb and they were hovering in the same spot.As I positioned myself for a better look they started moving in a straight line accross the sky, as they moved they got closer together. They made a right hand swooping turn and became one amber colored orb. We watched them until they dissapeared in the direction of the ocean.

We turned our attention back to the triangle formation and noticed that the orb that moved into position to make the triangle was moving up higher in the sky. This made the triangle look bigger. We also noticed that the orb right next to it followed it. We watched it for awhile longer and decided to go home for a bathroom break and to get something to drink.

At 10:00 we went back out to the place where we had seen the orbs and the triangle was still there. We noticed that it moved again. The top orb moved down and made the triangle look small. The orb that was dimmer was still right along side of it, they were still twinkling as if communicating. At this point I looked through the night vision goggles again and after a minute or two I noticed the same amber orb moving back into view from the direction we last saw it,(comming from the direction of the ocean). It was moving in a straight line to the immiediate right of where we were. I followed it and saw it drop a red orb out from underneath it. As they moved across the sky the amber orb slowly pulled away from the red orb, they were moving away from us. We told paula to flash her headlights at it to see if we would get a response. When she did the red orb stopped in its tracks and started going back in the same direction it had come in a seconds time. The amber orb stopped ond hovered until Paula beamed her high powered laser light up into the sky next to it. When she did it came straight towards us and flew right over us. It looked like a cluster of twinkling amber lights, then when it passed us it looked like a triangle craft. It had four amber lights in a row across the back and norrowed to one red light in the front. We stood where we were for about 45 seconds then decided to move back down the road.

When we stopped we looked at the triangle formation and saw that all four of the orbs were moving in and out. The formation was getting smaller than bigger, still with the dimmer orb next to the highest one. I decided to look through the night vision goggles again and when I did I saw an orb to the left of the triangle which was the same direction the amber and red orb went. It was flashing, all of a sudden it flashed very bright,so bright that lit up the sky around it and the night vision goggles.

The very next morning we noticed that there was a report of the same thing flying over Nevada. The pictures that were taken over Nevada were the same things we had seen in California.

Thin, Rectrangular UFO Over Mesquite, Texas

Note:  Report contains spelling/grammar corrections.  To see original report, click on case number.

MUFON Case #   22329
Event Date:    2010-02-16 22:10 GMT
City:    Mesquite
Region:    Texas
Country:    US
Longitude:    -96.6018
Latitude:    32.7608
Shape:    Square/Rectangular
Distance:    One mile or less
Summary:    Rectangular black craft moving very slow apx 500 feet with 4 dim red lights. NO FAA lights. 1 dimensional?.. like a flat black sheet of paper with lights on each corner.

On Feb 16th, 2010 approx. around 10:10 - 10:15 PM, I was coming back from the store and was walking between the house and next door. It was just floating across the sky right over my next door neighbors house at apx 15 to 20 mph. It was solid black. So black it was like a void in the sky.

At approx. 500 feet more or less it seemed to move in a straight line no sound at all. I would never have known this thing was above me if I didn't look up. It had 4 dim red lights on each corner on the craft. Solid, not blinking. It was moving wast to east.

No FAA lights.

I don't think I remember ever seeing a brick floating in the sky before. It only had one dimension! Not 2 or 3 dimensions just one.. like a flat sheet of black paper it was so flat that it was out of my sight in 30 seconds.. I guess cause it was flat and one dimensional.

The very dim lights could have been plasma vents to keep it up in the air.. I dunno.. just a guess.

It was a drop jaw moment for me. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I always wanted to see a real UFO for myself all my life. Actually after seeing this thing and thinking about it it gives me the willies.

I reported this to the Mesquite, Texas police dept. Nobody else reported this thing and I could tell the cop that called me back was laughing at me for reporting it.. I ask him if anyone else reported this and he said no I was the only one. I reported it like 3 or 4 days later. Didn't think the police would do much about it anyways but thought it might help just to document the sighting.

This was my "First" UFO sighting. I wish I had a camera handy but the one I do have is only a 4 mega pix camera and seeing the UFO was so dimly lit I don't think it would have been a very good picture or video.

2 witnesses see brilliant red/orange light & structure near Breckenridge, Texas

Date/Time: 03/14/2010 00:00
Location: Breckenridge, Texas
Area: rural/farm
Click on any image for larger view.

It was about 5 minutes till midnight, I stepped outside with my small dogs.  The sky was clear, stars plentiful, a beautiful evening.

I called one of my dogs back to me but he was interested in something in our driveway, so I walked out away from the house and that is when I saw an orange colored light to my Northwest, traveling East.

The object suddenly stopped and remained still. It was now located a few degrees west of due North and perhaps 5 degrees above the horizon. It never moved from that position, which was probably close to being directly over Crystal Falls.

At first I thought it might be an emergency helicopter, as we are not quite a half mile from the local hospital.  It only took a few seconds to be sure that it was not.

After watching for a few minutes, I ran inside and told my spouse, "You need to see this!"

I grabbed my binoculars, flung open our front door and pointed.  He saw it.  He grabbed my binoculars but they were set for me, so he grabbed the other set of binoculars and looked again.  We discussed it and agreed we were seeing the same thing.

The light would be a deep red, then it would change to a brilliant orange, then brighten even more, to a yellow white.  Every time I spoke out loud that it should come closer, or get brighter, it would flash brightly, then it would dim to red again.

What we saw was an horizontally elongated light, with something bright hanging down from the bottom center, like a narrow "V".  As we watched, I began to be able to see a slight outline of an object, that the light was attached to (see depiction).  The light was mounted to some type of structure.

Seen from our perspective and without aid, the light was approximately 3 times the magnitude of Venus at it's closest to earth.  The light appeared to be several miles away, yet through the binoculars it was fairly large.  After being able to see a faint outline of the object that the light was attached to, I'd have to say the object in total, was massive.

I took several photos with my small digital camera and watched the object for slightly over an hour.

At approximately 01:06, as my spouse and I watched, the light flared up to several times it's original size, then as if by flipping a switch, the entire object disappeared.

We both stayed awake until 03:00 but the object did not return.

I have had many sightings but this is only the second time that my spouse and I have witnessed something like this together.

From my perspective, the object (light) flared brightly and disappeared, while my spouse thinks it exploded, then disintegrated.  Whatever it was, we both watched it for over an hour before it disappeared in a flash.

Note:  This is my own personal sighting.  Photos were taken only seconds apart.   Depiction shows how the structure appeared, as I viewed it through my binoculars. 

My spouse and I are in agreement about the 'appendage' appearing to protrude from top and bottom of the light, though he had trouble making out the structure around it.

Description:    Bright star-like light during the day vanishes

After dropping my son off at school, I was driving home on the acceses road of 410 heading east when I a bright object in the sky caught my attention. The object I thought might be a star but I questioned how could it be so bright with the 7:30 sun shining? I was captivated and stunned. I starred to at it to try and figure if this obect had it's own light source or if the sun was reflecting from it. The objest did not seem to move as I was looking at it. It may have had motion but would have been difficult for me to see since it was so high up and I was driving. Had I been still, I may or may not have seen it in motion. As I was looking into the sky, I had nearly forgoten that the road (I'm all too familiar with), merges into one lane. From my periphrial vision, I notice the car in the next lane and I nearly collide. I swerve to avoid hitting and the driver slows down to let me get ahead. I re-adjust my vehicle on the road and look back to scan the sky. It's been about 5 seconds since I took my eyes away from the object and it's gone. I figure since I'm in motion, perhaps I maybe mistaken the location of the object in sky. I quickly turn into a nieghborhood just off of the access road and drove back west then drove back onto the access road in an effort to study the sky from the position I had been in just one minute prior. I still saw nothing. I'm baffled. By the way, not one cloud in the sky. I tried to come up with an explination but can't. I've never seen a plane move in a way that it could be out of sight in 5 seconds and a star that bight would need more time to not be visible in the sky. I really don't know what to make of it.

Description:    Four orange lights comprising the four corners of an inverted trapezoid. They blinked out individually.

I was standing outside in the courtyard of three portable buildings at Cottonwood Baptist Church, all covered by a separate steel-framed covering/roof. The buildings are positioned on the south, west, and north sides, with the east side being open. At approximately 7:40pm, I heard a long afterburner sound, probably 15 to 20 seconds worth. It sounded exactly like an F-16 engine, and I'm confident that it was not a twin-engined jet or a group of jets.

Approximately one minute later, I was on the east side of the courtyard facing west. I was watching the activity in the courtyard when something caused me to look up over the roof of the outbuilding to the west. I saw four orange lights forming the corners of an inverted trapezoid. The lights were of medium intensity, very similar to seeing an old streetlight in the distance. These lights did not seem connected, and as my eyes adjusted, I thought I saw stars between them, though I can't be sure because of the lighting around me at ground level.

When I first noticed them, I knew immediately that these were the lights that had been seen before from this same location around Thanksgiving. My wife and son along with several others had noticed the lights in the same position (west) in the sky during an outdoor fellowship meal.

The lights did not change position or intensity. Since I registered them as streetlamp-like lights, my mind guessed an altitude of 500 - 1,000 feet. The interesting thing about my vantage point is that there is a very narrow distance between the top of the outbuilding's roof and the steel-framed roof, limiting the combinations of altitudes and distances that these objects might have. If my altitude guess is correct, this would place the lights directly over the town of Dublin.

I had time to realize that I was seeing a light event, look for structure between the lights, and sense that there was none before they went out one by one - I believe that top left, lower right, top right, lower left was the order they went out in. They turned off in a manner consistent with a power source being removed, rather than the flickering or changing intensity associated with a burn-out event of a flammable object. The delay between one light going out and the next felt precise.

If you say "One and two and three and four" that's the time pattern they followed.

Because of the afterburner sound beforehand, I was completely convinced that this was a military operation from the moment I saw them. I immediately switched to looking for structure, and couldn't see any. After that, I mainly focused on the upper left light because it felt "closest", and I looked for structure around the light. No structure was detectable.

At 8:23pm, two military jets flew over, one to the west of the church, and one directly overhead. The one overhead registered as being at greater than 10,000 feet, and had just enough engine noise to make me look up and look for it. That was the last thing I saw in the sky before we left.

No one else around me at the time (7-8 adults, ~30kids) reacted, but I did find out that a couple of the girls in the kids group saw the lights as well. Within an hour of the event, after relaying the story to other adults, two different men told me that military jets and helicopters had been flying extremely low around the Stephenville and Hamilton areas in the preceding days. Of significance, there had been a very low flyover of the A&M Agricultural research facility at the corner of Hwy 281 and Hwy 8 (Lingleville Road). This location is approximately 12 miles north/northwest from the location of the sighting.

Description:    30-40 large yellow tint lights flashing in a round shape for a few minutes

I was driving from Stephenville toward my parents house which is a Dublin address. As I was approaching their house which is on the left side of fm 242, Dublin texas I saw about 30 or more huge lights with a yellow tint flashing, one after the other, in an oval to round shape. They appeared very low to the ground, the shape appeared to tilt to one side slightly. Turning into the drive way, the house obstucrted my view of the UFO lights. I began honking my horn as I drove into the drive way, trying to get my mom and duahgter's attention so they would come outside and see what was going on. As I ran up the walkway to the front door I could barely see the UFO lights. When they came outside the lights were gone, BUT we saw and heard 10-15 jets flying much higher in the area above their house. Funny thing though, I heard no noise coming from the UFOs. The only thing I felt was excitement, I was wearing extremely high heels and am 5 months pregnant, otherwise I would have ran toward the lights, becausse they appeared that close. About 20 feet behind my parent's house in the pasture just behind. I was the only car driving at this time on a dark farm to market road.

Description:    four square orange light that dispeared one at a time

On 03/04/2010 at approximately 20:15 I was stopped at a stop sign Wolf Nursery and The north west loop, When I looked South to make sure traffic was clear I noticed four Orange lights To the Southwest. I noticed the light were from East to West and started to disappear one at a time. I told my wife and she did not see anything at the time. I turned south and drove to water tower road to get away from all the city lights. On the way my wife saw several flashing light to the West of the water tower. We stopped and saw multiple flashing lights that were moving from West to east. The object was moving to the east toward Granbury and was followed by what I believed to be air planes that were very fast, I cannot say that the planes following were military or not, I do know that object left after the planes arrived.

Description:    sting ray like looking birds in an arrow formation/disappear, reappear, and dissappear again

I had just flown in from Dallas to Harlingen, landed after 12 noon. I drove back with a friend and her husband to Mcallen, my home town. Before Mcallen, we drove through Pharr Texas. I was in the back seat, and I happened to look up. I noticed, and not too high from the sky, a formation of birds, in an arrow shape, the way your normal birds migrate, but these were not the normal looking birds. They were in a perfect arrow shape, and about 8-10 of them on either side. They were flying in synch, the exact same time and way, these birds looked like sting ray looking animals, very strange looking birds, with a wide wing span, and bodies like a sting ray. As I was watching, they disappeared, then they reappeared within seconds, and they were still in synch as they were flying flapping their wings all at the same time. I did mention what I saw to the 2 people I was driving with, I was a little embarrassed to mention it again. With in seconds they disappeared again, and not into clouds, because they were way below the clouds. I've told my close friends and am embarrassed to mention it to anyone because don't want anyone to think I am crazy. Oh and I failed to mention, it was a beautiful clear day.
1. In the backseat driving home I was looking out the window.
2. Their perfect formation and in synch flying.
3. Regular geese
4. They looked like the body of a sting ray, especially their flapping wide wings as that of a sting rays, they were all flapping at the exact same time.
5. I thought, wow, this couldn't be. There's no way, a formation of birds can flap all at the same time and then just disappear. I know I'm not crazy!
6. They disappeared.

Description:    Man relates to me his abduction.

I met this gentleman for the first time, well over a year ago. I was in my front yard with a telescope, upon seeing him I asked him to have a look. The next time I see him he relates this story to me. This happened to him in Athens Texas. At the time we spoke February 18, 2010, the event had just happened approximately ten days earlier. The time of the abduction was 11:00 or 11:30 pm. He was shaking and had goose bumps covering his arms as he was telling me his story. I reported this abduction to another web site but did such a botched job, I felt I had to file it again.Subject got out of a car he was riding in with friends. He was going to walk across a field surrounded by woods to an apartment complex. His reason for not going directly to the apartments was that he did not want someone at the apartments to see him with his friends. As he was crossing the wooded area heading to the field he felt a presents above him. Some how he knew it was a ufo without looking. He started running through the woods to escape. This is when he heard a twitching noise in the bushes in front of him. He turned and ran in a different direction but no mater which way he turned he would hear the same noises ahead. The noises keep him running in a circle. Then he became paralyzed and could only move in a jerking motion and fell to his knees. At this time God told him not to open his eyes. He became weightless for a few moments. Next he was examined with some device that he called a scanner. As it was moved around his head he could hear a buzzing sound similar to a radio being tuned across the band. This devise made his hair stand up as it was moved over his head. As he was relating this to me he was holding both sides of his head as if he were in pain. While in the craft he hears someone say, he is still alive. Then hears someone one else say, I need a transfer then a string of numbers. For some reason he felt that these numbers were very important and related to me that he wished that he could be hypnotized to reveal the sequence. The duration of the time he was abducted was approximately fifteen minuets. He told me that he cried so much that his shirt was soaking wet. The event was so traumatic that he prayed to God that if he made it through the ordeal that he would give his life to God. When he was returned he was standing, his arms outstretched, looking up at the sky. The condition of the sky before the abduction was cloudy, after his return no clouds with the stars clearly visible.

Description:    4 to 5 yellow orange lights in a row.

I work on a ranch so I am outdoors all the time. At 834pm I left the barn and was walking outside when I noticed 4 to 5 yellow orange lights in a row. They were southeast of Gordon Texas just above the tree line. If I extended my arm towards the lights I could cover them with my thumb. In other words they were not close to me. The lights were very intense. to the right a new light appeared and the far left light disapeared. I went back to the barn to get my phone and when I returned the lights were gone.The total time that I watched them was for a few seconds. I immediatley recognized the formation as I have seen a similar one before. Several months before the big sighting at stephenville Tx, I was on Hwy 6 near Carbon TX. When I saw the lights I was almost directly under them. I stopped behind a trucker and his wife who were looking at them also. This thing was huge.make a fist and extend it to the sky. It was the width of 4 fists. the lights did not move,but rather one new light would form to the right and the far left light would disappear. When the new light was forming it resembled a neon sign that flickers before it comes on completely. In between the lights there were no stars present. But when the left light would disapper stars could be seen. Consequently, when a new light was forming to the right the stars would fade and only the new light and the light next to it could be seen. We also noted a jet flying above the lights in a circular pattern. The jet was making noise but the lights in a row were silent. I do not remember how long we watched it but it traveled west until it went out of our sight. I also do not know how many minutes passed until a new light would form. I was rather excited and did think about that at the time.

Description:    Large metallic object came the clouds partially then reversed back into clouds

This is my second attempt to report this event. My first time was to a local UFO website but I never heard back from anyone.What I saw that morning has haunted and intrigued me everyday since.
I was in my truck at the intersection of Stassney Lane and IH 35 east bound on Stassney sitting at the stop light. It was rush hour and lots of other vehicles waiting as well. It was a cloudy morning with a ceiling of no more then 1500 ft I estimated afterwards. As I was waiting at the light an object caught my eye just coming out of the clouds to my front and right. Other people at the light saw it as well. The object a grayish metal color came partially out of the clouds. The portion of the object we all saw is best described as like the shape of a ram air parachute.This part that was visible was very large and you could see squared sections around the edges and was definantly made of some type of medal.Only a portion of the object came through the clouds and hovered and you could see the clouds moving past it. It was amazing. I looked at other drivers and we all missed a cycle of the stop light watching this thing. It made no noise. It stay there for about 30 to 45 seconds and backed into the clouds and it was gone. It did not go straight up but backwards just like where it came from when it appeared.
I am a firefighter/emt and have extensive knowledge of aircraft and flight space around Austin and this was not anything I have ever seen before or since. I tried looking up aircraft with similar shapes and size and found nothing.
I would be glad to make a drawing for you if needed.
Thank you

I saw a ufo last night and this guy on the internet said it was a stupid light and his site is nomorestupidlights.com. It looked like a big triangle with lights on every corner and a red light in the middle. I am not lying and that site says that people who see a UFO are lying about it.

Description:    Ufo still at first over sky, then accelerated away and disappeared after shooting across 2/3 of sky

I went outside to smoke a cigarette and was standing on my stoop when I noticed this star like object was moving very very slowly, as could be seen with other stars as reference points. It was a very clear night, and so I stared at it, knowing this could not be a plane or helicopter, but maybe a comet or maybe a satellite. I called my friend on the phone to talk to him about it but just as I was calling it started to speed up so I stared again and it seemed to accelerate at speeds nothing on earth could recreate, it was almost exponential, and then the light just went away (dissolved) over a period of .5-1 sec. Not instantly, just faded away. At first, I was amazed, but now I really want some kind of explanation.

Description:    A silver ball

I was leaning over the top of my car talking on the phone to a friend, when I saw a round silver shiny object come out of a cloud, leave its environment maybe twenty feet and then dart into another cloud, as if it realized it had left cover. There was no sound, not a humming or the whir of a classic motor.As I was talking on the phone out of boredom, I looked upward as the event happened.The clouds were about 100ft above ground (this is a 5' tall persons idea of height). The clouds were brilliant blue with a few large puffy clouds interspersed throughout the skyline.I know it sounds odd and lasted less than 60 seconds....but I KNOW I am not hallucinating. What is truly weird, it was if I could see seams in the craft....were I too imagine it, first I would go with the '50's version of the inverted cup an saucer.......which my father and I saw in 1960 Anchorage Alaska, secondly, I would expect them to be so advanced it would not have seams.I knew exactly what I was seeing, a UFO...we don't have crafts like that in our military; my daughters are USAF & USArmy.I was so excited and let down at the same time. I look for the old fashion ''saucers'', so I was kinda disappointed it was a ball. Buy I knew what I saw was not anything I have flown in. I told the friend I was talking to at the time, she scoffed at me then said she believed me...but I have learned in the course of our friendship, that is not necessarily true.Once it left my vision, well, I have kept my eyes on the skies ever since, especially on semi-cloudy days...to no avail. I want to see more!So having seams was there anyone doing experiments?I have copied the info from my journal.To have made this up would take credence from my memory...a lie has no real life, this happened, whether I am Believed or not, doesn't matter, I was there and I saw what I have reported here.I drew in my journal within minutes of the event, but I don't posses the ability to send it to you except in snail mail. You still want it? Respectfully, cheyenne p.s., my father Maj. Donald R. Thomas (deceased) told me the USAF would not waste it's resources to bring all those men to Roswell for a weather balloon.

Description:    Very windy, cloudless day, small disc shaped stationary cloud, disappeared in a split second. Saw again farther north 15 min later.

My husband and I were driving north on Woodway Drive, going toward Loop 820 and Trail Lake Dr. in Fort Worth, Texas, when I looked up and saw a small disc shaped cloud that was stationary in the sky above us. It was shaped like a UFO, but in the form of a cloud. The wind was blowing around 33 miles per hour, it was very, very windy and there were no other clouds in the sky anywhere around the area. I pointed it out to my husband since I'm a big Coast to Coast listener, and I told him that I had heard that some UFO's will take the form of clouds. He and I were watching it and remarking how it wasn't moving at all when all at once it disappeared..poof it was gone. We couldn't believe it but continued driving north. About 15 minutes later we were on Forest Park Blve. near downtown when we saw it again, the same shaped small disc shaped cloud, but farther north and lower to the horizan. We had to make a turn and lost sight of it, but I really believe we may have seen something hidden as cloud in the sky.

Description:    object shaped like small aircraft with forward facing wings- not developed at time of observation

During the summer of 1978 I was outside playing in the yard and heard a humming sound. I was attentive as a child to the military aircraft that are always flying over our home. After hearing a humming sound I looked up and saw a small aircraft that I had not seen before. I watched the craft fly slowly Eastward for about a minute and was out of site over the trees. I estimate flying at about 1500-2000'. The wings were a swept wing design placed in the rear of the craft, but forward facing. Towards the front of the craft were smaller, cannard like wings.I have heard prop planes and have not heard anything that was similar to what I heard that day. I have looked at different types of experimental aircraft and not have found anything that was flying at the time that was close to what I witnessed. The only aircraft that may resemble is a Velocity Aircraft. The only noted difference is the wings are swept back. After serving in the Air Force and being around aircraft, I have yet to see any type of aircraft that has this design.

Description:     Saw an orb following a SW Airliner. It slowed down and veered right another orb appeared and they flew away together as if in formation.

Last Tuesday, at approximately 3:50 pm in Lakeway, TX (30°22'24" N, 97°58'37" W) I was leaving my house to run up to the store. Right as I was opening my car door I had the urge to look up. I think the Suns reflection off of the plane or the orb itself may have flashed and caught my peripheral. Anyway I looked up and noticed a SW Airline plane at 30° NE heading West (roughly over Lake Travis). I noticed a bright white orb on its trail. The sky was completely clear and sunny out. I had to take my sunglasses off to make sure what I was seeing was not a reflection. Not less than 30 seconds later, the orb slowed to almost a complete stop and veered 5° NE as the plane continued its heading. As the orb came out of its turn, another orb came out of nowhere (possibly from the right of just appeared). The 2 orbs then proceeded to converge toward each other stopping at what appeared to be a side by side flight formation. They continued on heading north while climbing altitude until they slowly vanished. (The attached photo is a sketch of the incident I drew right after it happened. It has 2 time points (a & b) for reference) Side note: I am college educated and have been an avid sky watcher for many years, frequently viewing and photographing planes and helicopters. I have never seen anything like this and definitely had chills running up my spine after the incident had passed. Also - I am not sure if this is related but later that evening there were helicopters circling the area. There was nothing crime or medically related that I could find on the news the next day and have never seen that many helicopter circling and patrolling the area.

Description:     Saw an unmoving blinking light far up in the sky.

Myself, my sister, her husband, and their kids were cooking out. I was watching the sky as I always do (I saw a UFO when I was a kid so I always watch the skys) and I spotted a light, it was blinking on and off and seemed very high in the sky. It was cloudy but the sky was visible between clouds. I asked my sister if she could see it, at first she said no, the clouds were moving pretty fast, then she said "Yes, it's a plane." I told her that it wasn't moving, that it was the clouds moving. After a minute she realized this was true. Still she said it was probably a satelite. I asked why a satelite would be blinking, she said the sun was probably hitting it as it spun. I don't think it was a satelite, I would think satelites would move across the sky, not be stationary. The light was bright and blinked on and off. It never moved from its spot. Except for the clouds, it was a sunny day. Planes passed through the sky, some below the clouds and a few I saw passed above the clouds, I saw them through the open spaces in the clouds, they all seemed way lower than the thing I was looking at. After about ten minutes it was too cloudy to see the sky and I gave up, about thirty minutes later the sky cleared and the object was gone. This morning (3/15/10) I drove to the store and baught a pair of binoculars, I watched the sky all day, espesially from 5:00 to 6:00 pm, it was a clear day, didn't see any satelite, I will do this all week.
