Cigar shaped UFO over Yuba City, California

MUFON Case #  26102
Date/Time:    2010-10-25 00:00 GMT
City:    Yuba City
State:    California
Shape:    Cigar, Cylinder
Distance:    Unknown
Location:    City
Terrain:    Fields

Summary:    White cylinder with indentation in middle (like a cigar w/band in middle)

I stepped out on my back porch to drink my morning coffee of which I always do every day just to take in a bit of the morning sun. I always look up to the sky just to observe the sparrows in the trees and the Honkers of which there are a lot of this time of year.

As I scanned the blue sky I noticed a bright white object coming from North and heading south. I immediately thought "how strange this object looked". It was a bright white yet transparent looking object. The front and back were rounded just like a long tube. There was a slight discoloration (slightly darker than the bright white/transparent color of the rest of the object) in the middle which gave it the appearance of a band around it.

I listened for "sound" but heard none but I also know that you can't always hear a planes engine until they have passed over you somewhat. I learned this because I see a lot of commercial airliners. I knew immediately this object was different because I couldn't see any wings, tail, windows, or a jet stream. It also seemed to move with more ease like it was gliding.

I can't explain why I felt that way except maybe because there was no sound. I remembered my camera was on the table so I ran in the house and grabbed it (coincidentally it was sitting on my kitchen table because I had been loading my vacation pics into my laptop that morning!).

When I got back out on the porch, less than 10 seconds, I noticed it had moved very fast and my nerves kicked in. I felt I needed to just start snapping photo's or else I was going to lose it. I snapped only 3 frames before it was out of sight. I only caught one good enough to show what I saw and I am pleased. I listened for the "sound" again but heard nothing. It seemed to be heading south but also "up" and it disappeared rather into the high sky before I could blink.

  1. I have witnessed this type of UFO over the DFW more than 8 times in the past year.

  2. Although the quality of these particular photos isn't very good, it does seem to correspond to many other sightings around the world.

  3. I just saw one of these this evening while birdwatching in my back yard in Western WV, and was Googling images and found your blog. Flying North to South, no sound, no wings, at an altitude where you might expect to see a jet. But it wasn't a jet. I didn't perceive any transparency, but it was very shiny and reflective and there was something dark or some other feature around the middle that made it look like a bullet or a missile. That's why it caught my attention. I took video on an iPod, but it's useless as it is much too pixilated to be able to see any kind of detail. Your description sounds like what I saw.
