Lavender Lights Seen In Connecticut & Georgia

Depiction of MUFON Case # 29301 - by SW/LITS.


A witness in New Milford, Connecticut and one in Atlanta, Georgia both claim to have seen similar "lavender" lights. Here are their unedited reports to MUFON.

MUFON Case # 29291
Date:    2011-05-28
Time:   22:18
City:    New Milford
State:    Connecticut
Shape:    Other
Location: Farmland
Terrain: Mountains
Visibility: Partly Cloudy
Vallee Index:    MA1
Summary:  Lavender horizontal line of lights in sky/ New Milford CT 5/28/11 10:18PM EST

I was driving home from work, and was stopped at a stop sign. The area is very rural on top of a mountain. I noticed out of the left field of my vision a set of 3-4 lavender colored lights set in a horizontal row move towards the middle of my field of vision. These lights were moving slowly and caught my attention because of their strange color. As i drove forward, coming upon the crest of the hill, wherein there is a large field on both sides of the road, i noticed a similiar configuration of lights enter the right side of my field of vision. They were orange-red in color. I looked for indications the lights could be shining up in the sky from the ground, but the area is so rural it seemed unlikely. The lights were also very high up in the sky indication an aircraft of some sort. There were also no trails of light from the ground up that you would usually see from a spot light or laser. I was convinced at that point these lights belonged to an aircraft. As the lights on the right proceeded to fly towards the lights on the left side of the sky, they changed from the orange redish color to the lavender observed on the left side of the sky lights. I slowed and watched the lights begin to circle one another. The right hand side lights moving from being in a horizontal line with the left side lights to swiftly hovering above them in a vertical manner. The lights then began to circle around each other. At this point i was baffled as to what type of aircraft these can be since i have never witnessed these manuvers nor the colors. At that moment i was convinced they were a UFO of some sort and began to feel a bit frightened. I started to drive faster down the road keeping an eye on the lights in my perpihel vision. After watching them circle around each other at a faster rate they disappeared.
This occured at 10:18 pm EST on second hill rd in new milford ct.


MUFON Case # 29301
Date:    2011-05-26
Time:   22:00
City:    Atlanta
State:    Georgia
Shape:    Unknown
Distance: 100 feet or less
Summary:  Lavender lights in a row above the road   

Due to a severe storm, our power went out for approximately 10 hours starting at 530 pm. Around 10 pm, I told my husband I was going to sit in the car with the a/c on as I was getting overheated. After about 10 min, while I was listening to the radio, I saw a car drive slowly by and watched the tailights disappear from sight. I watched for a little bit to see if they were slowing down or stopping. Within about a minute, I saw a row of 4 lavender lights about 10 feet above the road slowly move along the road that is in front of our house. They came from the direction the car just went. Our home is about 100 yards from the road but I could see the lights very clearly moving very slowly. I was not able to comprehend what they were and my mind was racing. With what I can only describe as sheer horror, I saw one light break away and slowly move down our driveway. I got out of the car and made my way inside as quickly as possible. I was in such terror I could only blubber out to my husband what I saw. He turned off his flashlight and watched out the window. We both witnessed some fireflies and he assured me that was what I saw. It was not. The lavender lights did not blink and moved very slowly in a straight horizontal line. I tried to disregard what I saw but then saw the other report of the same lights and knew I had to report it.

"No trail, like watching controlled flames."

LITS Report
Date: 2011-05-29
Time: 01:45
Location: Watauga, Texas
Shape: Disc, Sphere, Triangle

Hi Sunny,

I also saw something at about 1:45 AM.

I took my dog out.  I live in Watauga, TX 76148. 
In the West North West sky first thought what is that?  Is it a plane on fire? Lots of air traffic around here DFW , Alliance. 

No sound with this object it looked like a triangle with black center flames on both sides or like space shuttle shape with what looked like fire where the wings are. 

I saw this around 1:40 to 1:46 am. I looked at the clock when I brought the dog in. It was 1:49 

It did not seem to be descending.  Traveled from NW to SE high in the sky. To watch it I was facing west, then south west, then south east. It was then just gone. I saw it for not sure how long just a minute or two I think. 

The first thing I did when I got done with my dogs was too look up on line to see where the space shuttle was & if they were on their way back. 

Please let me know if you find out what this was & I am glad I am not the only one that saw something last night.

If you have any questions let me know.  Thanks (Name withheld by SW/LITS)

I saw it too! My roommates and I were standing on the back porch and one of them said, "oh look, a shooting star!" We all thought that by the time we turned around it would be gone, but it went for about 7 or 10 seconds and traveled completely across the sky. It was very red in color and looked much closer than a shooting star. It happened just before 1.45am. Denton area. -Mike

Coleman,TX, May 29, 2011-Red Light Streaks Across Sky

I received an email from a man in Coleman, Texas.  His UFO sighting took place between 01:30 and 01:45 hrs, the morning of Sunday, May 29, 2011.

If you witnessed this event, please contact me.
Thank you- SW


I'm located in Coleman, Tx and I witnessed a high speed object of some kind traveling east in the northern sky with a long tail between 1:30-1:45am May 29.
It was traveling at a very high rate of speed, had a deep red coloring in the tail, and it also looked quite big. Also the trajectory of the object didn't seem to curve as it would if it would of been a shooting star, entering the upper atmosphere.
This objects trajectory was very flat and disappeared behind the trees. I heard no sound but it appeared to be no higher than a low flying aircraft.
I live next to a small commercial airport and am accustomed to seeing low flying single engine planes flying over night and day. I'm hoping someone else in the area is stargazing tonight and can backup what I saw

Black Sphere In Sky Over Centreville, VA

This report is from a witness in Centreville, Virginia, who had a daytime sighting of a black sphere.

MUFON Case #  29288
Date:    2011-05-28
Time:    15:30
City:    Centreville
State:    Virginia
Shape:    Circle,Sphere
Duration:    03:25:00
Summary:    Black Sphere Hovered in Sky Until Obscured By Clouds

I went out for a smoke at approximately 3:25 p.m. I was sky-gazing; merely looking at clouds. When I was done with the cigarette, I looked up at a 45 degree angle toward the North West sky, I noticed an object hovering. It was completely still, despite it being very windy at that moment. I observed it hovering in the blue sky for approximately a minute and half until a dark cloud passed under it, and it was gone. I waited for the cloud to move, and it was no longer there. After that I stayed out for another 10 minutes to see if it had perhaps moved to a different location, which it had not.

Once I noticed the object, I pulled out my phone to record it. When I finally went inside, I uploaded it to my computer to review the video, but the phones camera didn't seem to have picked it up.

If it makes a difference, I had been outside all day until then, and the air traffic was very light, despite it being memorial day weekend.

The weather was partly cloudy and windy, with maybe 50% of the sky having scattered clouds.

I have extensive knowledge of aircraft, military and commercial, as well knowledge of air traffic patterns in the area.


Disc-like UFO Scares Villagers and Russian Military

Click for Larger view.

Villagers of Lesopilniy in the Khabarovsk region in Russia's Far East, were shocked and panicked, when they witnessed a giant UFO hovering over their village, claiming it did not resemble "anything known to human science".

According to witnesses, the craft was about 200 meters in diameter, making it much larger than a passenger plane.

Undetected by radar but seen with the naked eye, soldiers at a nearby military base planned to fire artillery shells at the UFO, if it became hostile. However, the UFO quickly disappeared.

A few witnesses drew depictions of what they saw.

Pine Trees May Have Been Killed By UFO

Artist depiction - by SW/LITS

A Virginia witness claims that an unidentified flying object may have killed his pine trees, affected him physically and that he may also have experienced an abduction.

Here is that unedited report.

MUFON Case # 29248
Date:    2011-01-13
State:    Virginia
Shape:    Disc,Teardrop
Vallee Index:    CE1
Summary:    Unknown Craft Above House, Killed Four Tall Pine Trees

I'd had extensive dental work done the day before (a number of x-rays, root canal, etc.) and one of my teeth was aching. It was about 2:00 a.m. and I was having trouble sleeping and rather than bother my wife I left the master bedroom and lay down on the futon in my study. I finally fell asleep only to be awakened by a strange buzzing/humming noise. At first I thought it was coming from outside, an airplane maybe.

But after a few seconds I realized it was in my head. It sounded like a microwave oven, but without the heat. I couldn't move even though I was fully awake. My entire skull was vibrating. It wasn't unpleasant, just weird. After a minute of this I began to get scared. I thought I might be having a medical event of some sort. With great effort I was able to move one arm and reached my wristwatch on the end table (it's a Citizen Eco-drive with luminescent hands). It was exactly 3:08 in the morning.

As I stared at the watch the humming slowly subsided. Once it ended I could move freely again. I sat up and looked around. The house was completely still. Only the light of the single street light across the street broke the darkness.

I got up and walked from room to room, but nothing was out of the ordinary. My wife was sleeping soundly. There was no sign of the cats. Then I thought I heard something from the roof. I went to a window overlooking the back yard and looked up at the sky. It was an overcast night, but I was certain I saw the curve of something rather large over the house. It was very dark, but it caught the light from the street just enough for me to think it was metallic of sort. It couldn't have been more than thirty feet above the roof (our house is a rancher). I hurried to the back deck but by the time I opened the slider and looked up again, the object was gone.

I didn't know what to do. I went back inside and went to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. There were droplets of blood coming from my right nostril. But, other than that, I didn't appear to be any worse for wear. I returned to the study, turned on the TV for a while and stared at the screen for quite a long time, not taking much of anything in.

To cut to the chase, about two weeks later I went out to get the Sunday paper and noticed that some of the pine trees nearest my house appeared to be dead. The needles were all reddish brown. I called an arborist I'd done business with in the past and he took a look at them. He agreed that they were dead and should come down (these trees are 60+ feet tall). After he dropped the first tree he came to and asked me how long they'd been dead. I said I thought couple of weeks. He said this wasn't possible because these trees were totally devoid or sap and moisture. In his experience it takes months, maybe a year for a pine to dry out this completely. I stood by my story. They were all still green around Christmas time. He said I must be mistaken. So, I asked him, what do you think killed the trees? He said it was either last summer's drought or insects. I pointed at all of the neighbors' trees. They are all healthy and thriving. Not a single one for two blocks around is dead. He shook his head and said it was strange, but he didn't know what else to say.

Of course I didn't tell him that I thought might have UFO killed them. That's the last thing I need in my neighborhood.

As a PS I'd like to add that strange things have been happening to us ever since I saw a UFO a few years ago. I won't go into them here. I feel like I'm living in my very own sci-fi movie. And I don't much like it. Even my wife has mentioned odd dreams and thoughts.

Lights Over Russia & China

Interesting and "unidentified" strange lights over Russia and China:

Previous post:  Video- Beijing invaded by lights

Note:  I received an email from an ex-patriot in Beijing, China, saying that the lights seen in Beijing on May 15, 2011, was nothing more than students breaking a Guinness World Record for flying kites.

Since the posting of that report, I have received word of other witnesses (U.S. citizens) in Beijing, claiming to have seen the lights and that those lights in the video were not kites, that they were unidentified flying objects.  I was told that they can distinguish the difference between the lights on kites and "UFOs".

I was not there, so I cannot verify, other than to say that I trust my witness (whom I do know), over someone I do not. -SW

Triangle of Lights Over Frisco, TX, May 15, 2011

I received this UFO report from a witness in Frisco, Texas.

The report is "as is", with no corrections. 

Sunday, May 15, 2011 10:15 PM

I live In Frisco and this evening my family and I were just about to turn down our residential street when i looked up over the house tops and saw 3 lights in a triangular formation. This was about 10:15pm Sunday May 15th. The lights looked to be coming from the north east and heading westerly. my daughter and I went upstairs to look out her bedroom window which faces north to see if we could continue to see the lights better. it took about less than 3 minutes to park the car and get up stairs from when we first saw the lights and they were gone. i even ran down stairs and went to our backyard and still no sign it was like the just disappeared. The thing about these lights which I notice was the distance between the center light was the same for either light on the left or right of it. I would estimate that the height from the house tops were only a few hundred feet. and the span between each light was about the same this thing was enormous.

I wrote back to the witness and asked:
1.) Could you hear any sound associated with this object?
2.) What color were the lights?
3.) Could you see the object that the lights were attached to and can you describe it?

The witness's response was:

Here are the answers to your questions:

1.) There was a real faint pulsing sound almost like what a powerline would sound like emitting a low faint electrical sound, wasnt like an airplane engine humming but an electrical pulsing

2.) They were amber in color changing to greens and golds and back to amber

3.) They seemed to be unattached. They were single objects with one at the point and the other two same distance from the center object but in a triangle shaped formation. They were not planes I can definitely say that, the individual shapes where spheres/globes. I know planes just don't fly that close and especially at night. Im no expert but I am pretty sure I have seen enough planes and jets to know there were not either of those.

If you have any other questions I would be happy to answer them.

UFO Hoax Planned by "Anonoymous"

Anonymous to hoax UFO reports.

Hacker group Anonymous is turning its attentions from annoying the powerful, to hacking off UFO enthusiasts.

On May 22, after they have washed up after their mum has made them dinner, Anonymous members will flood UFO websites with fake reports of a triangular UFO.

Operation UFO will provide the members of Anonymous with endless hours of entertainment as the story is picked up by the mainstream media and becomes "reality".

The assumption is that the next day the papers will be full of stories sparked by the UFO postings. Ghosttheory has opened a book on whether Fox will run a story linking the UFO with terrorism, or claiming that Obama's birth certificate was signed by ET.

Note:  Are these people 8 years old?  Anonymous should read "Ignoramus".

Please, don't fall for this. Some 'people' have jumped the gun and are already filing fake reports of triangles with "8" lights.

If you are serious about the UFO phenomena, then don't do what the group "Anonymous" asks.  Um, besides, everyone knows that triangles are the new "stealth" aircraft, right?

Then again, if your IQ is the same as your show size...

Questions, questions. Is our military behind these events; are aliens? Or is this Mother Nature having a fit like she does ever so often?  And what were those lights?  No, not ball lighting.

Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, exploding transformers...  Are these signs and does all this herald in the Last Days?

Some believe the end of the world, Judgement Day, the coming of Christ will be on the 22nd of May, 2011. Well in some parts of the world, it is already May 22, 2011 and so far all seems fairly quiet.

Maybe the bus took a detour. Or maybe the show was cancelled.

Personally, I don't think it was even booked. Why destroy the world and end all this chaos?

Stay tuned.  -SW

Black Sphere Seen Near Belgrade, Montana

Depiction of black sphere.

Witness reports to MUFON, of having seen a black sphere near Belgrade, Montana.
Report is "as is" with no corrections.

MUFON Case # 29141
Date:    2011-05-15
Time:   10:10
City:    Belgrade
State:    Montana
Shape:    Sphere
Summary:    3'-4' diameter black sphere

On Sunday morning I was heading south out of belgrade, mt on hwy 191 to go to my business to retreive something i forgot. Anyway, as i was driving by this meadow, which is completely devoid of trees and completely flat, i noticed a black sphere approximately 3-4 ft in diameter heading north at about 40 - 50 feet off the ground, 150 - 200 yards off the highway and moving at about 20-30 mph. My first thought was that it was a balloon, but the wind that morning was out of the east and blowing real hard and this thing was not being buffeted by the wind whatsoever. It continued unaffecated by the wind for a distance of about 200 yds, bobbled a couple of times and rapidly decended to a height of about 8-10 ft and just sat there. I watched for a bit and seeing no further movement went on my way.

Now was this a balloon? NO. Was it a government spy drone? Possibly, but why would it be in some farmers' vacant field in Montana? My personal feeling on what this could be is that it was an alien probe of some kind. Possible looking for cattle to do some of that weird cattle mutilation **** to. It might be worth talking to the people that live near by to see if they have seen anything like this before or that morning. I wish I was able to get my camera off the floor of my truck to get a video clip, but i'm recovering from a broken clavicle (No, I wasn't high on pain meds!). If I ever see one of these again, hopefully, I can get some footage or even shoot it down so we can see what it really was.
If you go to google video search and type in "black orb ufo close" there is a video of one of these things and it is EXACTLY like what i saw, but i think this video may be computer generated. what i saw WAS NOT!!

Video of Disc-shaped UFO Over Bristol, Tennessee, 2003

Video capture of Disc-shaped UFO, Bristol, Tennessee, Aug. 3, 2003.

On August 3, 2003 a witness video taped a disc-shaped UFO, as he and his family watched  it fly over Bristol, Tennessee.

The video was analyzed and it was estimated that the object was at least 35 feet in diameter, with an aspect ration of 6 to 1.

To see video, please click on the link below.


MUFON Case #  29112
Date:    2003-08-03
Time:   16:30
City:    Bristol
State:    Tennessee
Shape:    Disc
Distance:    One mile or less
Weather:    Light
Vallee Index:    FB1
Summary:    Family watched and filmed disc shaped object

My son and I were working on his car when I noticed a small obscure object emerging from clouds to my NW.

As my son watched the object, I went inside and retrieved binoculars. Upon returning, my son and I were amazed at what we were watching. It was a metallic, copper colored (with darker burned spots) perfect disc shaped object. It slowly moved toward us, occasilnally moving back into clouds. I went back inside and retrieved an old VHS camcorder, returned with my wife and began taping.

As my son and wife watched thru binoculars, I taped the object as it performed complex manuevers, moving toward the south, ever closer to my location. I recorded the object for some 12-15 minutes.

To describe the object is simple, It was a perfect disc shaped object with absolutely no features, no structures, highly reflective (as it reflected sunlight), silent and demonstrating controlled flight.

After the object got at it's closest (approx 8000 feet distant), it moved away to the west behind trees.

I immediately called the FAA control tower at the TRi Cities airport to inquire if they had seen anything on their radar since this sighting was in the direct flight path to the airport and was told No that unless the object had a transponder, their radar was not set up to see it.

I also called the national Weather service office in Morristown and recieved wind data for that day at height. All wind at every level the object occupied was from the west, the direction the object left, proving powered flight.

I also requested approx. distance to the clouds from my location using coordinates. The Culumulus cloud bank from which the object emerged when we first saw it was approx 5 miles distant from me at 16:30 hours.

Video was shared with Dr Bruce Macabee for analysis. he also asked for and recieved a video shot with the same camera of a yard stick at 50 measured feet also zoomed and normal. Macabee's analysis was thorough and very professional. He surmised the object was some 35 feet in diameter and had an aspect ratio of 6 to 1. Distance varied greatly from the camera to the object.

Macabee also stated the object was displaying flight characteristics which defied laws of physics.

I originally submitted all this info(including statements from the NWS regarding wind data) to MUFON by paper forms back in 2003.

Breaking News! May 15, 2011- Beijing, China Invaded by Hundreds of UFOs! Photos & Video

Hundreds of UFOs Witnessed in Beijing, China!

On the evening of May 15, 2011, I received a call from a friend, who is living and working in Beijing, China.  She reported to me that she witnessed something which struck her with awe, fear and amazement.

I asked my friend if she would write up a report and send it to me, as I could not find anything in the news, or on the internet about this event.

I received her emailed report, photos and video, then shortly thereafter she emailed me again with another video, also telling me that some of the same object had returned on the evening of May 16, 2011.

As far as I know at this point, this is the only report, photos and video of these events, to come out of China.  You are seeing it here first, on LITS!

If you have any information concerning the May 15-16, 2011 UFO events over Beijing, China, please contact me. -Sunny Williams

Beijing Invaded by UFOs- Report

Last night, May 15, 2011, around 8 PM I witnessed an awesome UFO event over the city of Beijing, China. I am an American living and working here and I live on the 4th floor of an apartment complex, in the old embassy district of town. My location is just southeast of Ritan Park, next door to the Silk Market.

I was in my study for an hour or so, had finished an email, logged off and turned out the light to go into another room. As I was walking out I glanced out of the window in my study, which faces north, and saw an unusual light low in the sky. It was perhaps at 10,000 feet (maybe a bit less) and not moving. 

I grabbed a pair of binoculars from another room, to get a better look and immediately knew that this was no conventional craft. It was clearly disc-shaped, was spinning and slightly swaying and flashing red, blue, green, and white. Every minute or so the red color would freeze, and a round red bulb of light would bulge from the middle of 
the craft and hold for a couple of seconds. Then it would draw back in and continue blinking the other colors.

Within 10 minutes of watching this event, 3 other smaller craft appeared out of nowhere, also flashing the same colors. I would guess the first craft was at least 100 ft. diameter, the smaller ones maybe half that. These craft were much more active and dropped lower than the first.

Then more craft showed up, each flashing a brilliant blue. These were small, perhaps 5 ft. in diameter and very active.
At this point I was beside myself, and started calling coworkers, finally reaching one. He came up to my apartment with his girlfriend and for a good 30 minutes, we all took turns watching with binoculars. By this time there were at least 20 craft in sight and counting.

My friends finally went back home and I continued watching.  I contacted a coworker across town and Northeast of my location. He could not see the ones I was watching (buildings blocking his view) but watched another group to the East of his apartment (which I could not see from my location).

I did my best to video this with my little Panasonic but was only able to capture a few seconds. I just could not seem to keep it in the viewfinder, so I finally gave up.

I decided to go to the 7th floor stairwell, to get a better view. This was about an hour into the sighting. What I saw was mind-blowing! There was a oval-shaped string of flashing blue small lights, streaming from the height of the largest craft, all the way down to the ground and back up. This appeared to be over the Northwestern corner of Ritan Park.

The lights were flashing very fast, were stationary but were also vibrating rapidly. The air in the center of the circle was distorted and vibrating, like a heat wave in the desert. It looked like Christmas lights and almost looked like a hologram. I started looking around to see if this could have been projected from somewhere nearby.

Then one craft drifted out of formation and casually flew about, down to the ground, then back up, and over toward a high rise, then back into line. Then another did the same. This went on for several minutes.

In the meantime, two of the 50 ft. craft were buzzing around this formation, as if herding the small craft and orchestrating their actions. The large craft at this point, had dropped in altitude to about 1000 ft. I looked through my binoculars at this craft, and to my amazement (and horror) saw the the upper atmosphere and beyond was filled with twinkling lights! There were hundreds of them, probably far more.

You have to realize that in Beijing, it is rare to see more than a few stars due to the light pollution (and air pollution), and that is only on perfectly clear nights. These were not stars. And yes, they were moving and zipping 
about as well.

I have to admit I panicked a little and dashed back to my apartment, made some phone calls, threw a few things in a backpack, and was ready to scamper just in case. Afterwards, maybe 20 minutes had passed, I went back to my study window and watched as these things drifted further northward. The blue lights were gone from view, the higher lights were gone, and only the big craft and 2 smaller ones were in sight. They were approximately 6-7 miles from my location, moving up and down in height at no higher than 1000 feet, occasionally dropping below the tree line and back up.

I walked away for maybe 10 minutes, came back and only the large craft was in sight. Less than a minute later, a white light came up from below the tree line and took position under the big craft. A few seconds after that, a green one. And after that, a bright blue one.

A few minutes went by, then all dropped again below tree height and that was the last I saw of them. The time was 10:15 PM.

Never during this display did I (or my coworker across town) see any military aircraft. We never heard a siren, nor did we see anyone reacting to this event. There is obviously a media blackout concerning this (it's China, so no big  surprise), because there has been nothing on the news, in the papers, or on the net. Nobody I know, other than my two coworkers and their respective girlfriends, saw anything. However, I've only talked to 10 other people about it and there are a few hundred at my workplace, so who knows.

Since Beijing never sleeps and has a population in the millions, I hope someone out there got good footage and can get it out soon. This was huge, way bigger than the Phoenix lights event or anything else I've ever seen or heard about.

For anyone wondering when the invasion will happen, it just has.

For the record, the sky at the time was mostly clear, the temperature was in the low 60's, and there was only a light occasional breeze.

Then some of the objects returned the next evening...

I'm also totally amazed that they came back. This time another coworker watched them. He was so upset that he missed the BIG party on Sunday, so the minute I spotted the bastards I called him.

These things got all the way down to ground level, like they were buzzing something. The bigger ones were a lot more active as well. For awhile, some blue ones were in a slanted H formation (they did this at one point on Sunday also).

If nobody over that way saw these, then they must all have been unconscious! I estimate they (the objects) were just this side of the Olympic Park.

The jet I heard was just an airliner. I never saw it but assume. My coworker on that side of town said airline traffic was coming and going as usual. The air space here is extremely restricted, and I've only ever seen planes go from the northeast (airport), to directly south. Yesterday around 5-ish, I did see what I believe was a fighter or some other small jet hauling ass, flying from east to west and to my north. In other words, cutting across the sky where these things have been doing their thing.

Didn't see any other aircraft during the activity (which I watched from 8:30-9:30). Did not see them after that and was too tired to care right at that moment. Slept only a couple hours on Sunday, fully clothed and with my boots on (so I could hit the ground running in case something happened).

This morning I saw 2 contrails in the sky . One going south, per usual. And one cutting east to west. It's slightly overcast so I don't see anything else out there, but who knows.  And you are right, this isn't over. If there isn't some announcement this week, I'd be totally stunned.

Thanks for working on this Sunny and let me know if you discover anything. I'll keep my eyeballs peeled again tonight.

White Boomerang-shaped Objects in Clouds Over McKinney, Texas

Depiction by witness.

Depiction by SW/LITS.

A McKinney, Texas resident reports having seen 2 white boomerang shaped objects in the storm clouds over the city.
This report is "as is", unedited.

MUFON Case # 29096
Date:    2011-05-11
Time:    19:30
City:    McKinney
State:    Texas
Shape:    Boomerang
Distance:    One mile or less
Location:    City
Visibility:    Overcast
Weather:    Rain,Light
Vallee Index:    AN1
Summary:    Boomerangs white clouds not moving

Saw two boomarang ufos in the west looked like they were over US75 . My wife and I were just leaving the sonic about 7:30pm today 5/11/2011. A line of thunderstorm had just passed through the area and it was still raining lightly. We pulled into the grocery store parking lot across from the sonic drivein. With the truck facing west we continued to look at two boomarang clouds white, sharp tips instead of round. They were intese white, while the clouds above them were dark vinilla. The sky looked like it was starting to clear in the west, but just barely. I could see two layers of clouds one passing over the other in different directions. The lower clouds hung down like drap bunchings sagging down like gumdrops across the sky. The two white boomarang shaped clouds, were sitting at a angle the right side of the boomarang higher than the left. Still and not moving. We wached them for several mins. they did not move. Then either the clouds that were above the boomarangs came down and enveloped them or they receided into the clouds. It looked like they just receded into the clouds and were obscured from our view. The closest one to us may have been 100 feet or more from wing tip to wing tip. Twenty feet thick in the middle. Just guessing. After the boomarangs receided into the clouds, a business jet came around us from the south, passing in front of us in the west and curving back to the south looking like it was on approach to the McKinney airport nearby. It was low to the ground under the cloud cover. It didn't look much higher than the radio tower to the north of us. We felt excited and that maybe they were looking back at us.

Amber Lights South of Abilene

Click on map for larger view.

I received an email from a man in Novice, Texas, who along with others has seen amber colored lights in the sky.  Here is what he has to say:

My name is
(name withheld by SW/LITS), and I live in a small town called Novice, about 30 miles south of Abilene.

I used to hear from my friends a lot when I was younger about strange lights they would see in the sky, but usually just dismissed it.

In the fall of '10, myself, both my parents, and two of my parents friends all witnessed them for ourselves.

In the southern sky, there were about 3 amber colored lights that would appear in the sky, then disappear about 30 seconds later, give or take. After they would disappear, they would re-appear in the sky but quite a distance away from where we first saw them.

Me and my father again saw the lights about 2 months ago, again in the southern sky. This time, it was at first one light, that appeared to turn into three. Stayed in the sky roughly 15 seconds, then vanished. Then, a single light appeared in another part of the sky, 25 or so seconds, then left.

I should probably mention that both times, after the lights were seen, after a period of 10 minutes give or take, there appeared to be very, very fast, high altitude jets that seemed to be trying to follow the lights movement, or so it appeared.

Also, almost everyone in this town has seen them at least one, even old farmers and retired vets.

If you have any questions, feel free to email.

PS, regarding the possibility that they might be flares.
I found it pretty strange that the night I came across your website, was also the night that Abilene's local news station KTAB stated that "even pilots and military do not have a answer for what these lights could be", pretty much ruling out flares from a mainstream media POV.


Note:  I and many others have seen these lights outside of military operations areas. -SW

Doctor Who come calling in Eastbourne, UK?

Doctor Who's "Tardis".

TARDIS-like UFO spotted over Eastbourne

Eastbourne Herald- AN EASTBOURNE man swears ‘on his mother’s grave’ that he saw a TARDIS-like object floating above the town last weekend.

Steve Mackin, of Appledore Road, was on his way back from performing at The Smugglers in Pevensey just after midnight on Sunday (May 8), when he spotted a pulsating orange light coming from what looked like an old-fashioned police box, like Doctor Who’s, pictured.

Mr Mackin, who believes it must have been a UFO, said it glowed and then vanished, only to reappear minutes later when he had got back to his house.

“I’m not lying because there were five of us who have seen it, and that’s on my mother’s grave,” he said.

“It was there, honestly. It was really, really weird. I have never seen anything like that in my life, never – not in a million years. It couldn’t have been a helicopter, there was not a sound coming from it at all.

“I watched it in the sky coming towards the trees.

“It stopped in front of me and the light went from dull to bright orange and then it sort of vanished in front of my eyes.”

Mr Mackin said his neighbour had also seen it and someone at work had mentioned seeing a strange light over Willingdon.

Police said they had not received any calls about the strange flying object. Website UK UFO Sightings recorded a similar sighting in East Grinstead a few hours later, at 3am.

The witness said, “Looking out of the bedroom window, I saw a bright orange light which was a rectangular shape with a flashing light at each end.

“I watched it as it travelled east very slowly for approximately 30 seconds and it then stopped.

“It then travelled back west at the same speed gradually disappearing in front of my eyes.

“I have never seen anything like it before. Very strange.”

Mailbag: Alien Probe Seen In Austin Resident's Yard?

Depiction of Lights seen in Austin Resident's back yard.  By SW

I received this report from a reader in Austin, Texas:

Hi Skywatcher,

Thanks for such a great site. I've been perusing your site since since August 2010 or so and have been enjoying it very much.

I am always very interested in the subject of UFO's and have seen a variety of lights and/or objects though never reported anything directly to MUFON or other agencies.  I don't particularly think this warrants a report on your site, though you might find it interesting none the less.

I was home in NE Austin early on May 4th, 2011, a Wednesday evening and was sitting and wading through various programs on t.v.  My T.V. faces at an angle away from a wall with an outside window set into it.  It was about dusk. It was dim outside though I could still easily see the fence out back, a shed to one side, and the slight hint of light from under my outdoor porch.  The window is shuttered though I happened to have the shutters fully open and could see well through the large slat spaces. There is -no- reflection on this window from the television nor any other window.  Nothing was moving in the room I was sitting on to give any kind of reflection.

My eyes were drawn to this window by a sense of movement outside and I suddenly saw two lights traveling past parallel to that side of the house.  As I had an outside porch pillar to gauge distance by, I would say they were about 10-12 feet from the window itself and passed just over the outer edges of the porch.  The two lights were different colors, the front light being bright orange yellow, the smaller light was a darker red.  The smaller light was slightly obscured by the orange light but seemed to float just ahead and to one side of the larger one. As it was so close, I would say the larger light may have been about tennis ball size or perhaps slightly larger, the smaller light about half that size.  I cannot say how fast they were going. Faster than a man walking by though slower than a runner.  Their rate of speed was just enough to attract my attention,allow me to focus on them and watch them move past in sync.

I heard absolutely nothing (other than my t.v.)and my dog who is extremely sensitive to noises around the house did not react at all.  A neighbors six foot fence lies in the direction they came from and they were headed in a direct line to another neighbors house ( if they ever reached it)
Their movement was in what seemed to be a very straight line from one side of the yard to the other. ( approx north to south)  I could only see on the side of the house I was sitting on.. probably 1/3 to 1/4 of my yards distance?. They were gone by the time I got up to investigate further. Within about 30 seconds of their passing.. fireflies began to rise.  I do not believe I was mistaken and saw fireflies. The lights never flickered, they were -much- larger than the flickering fireflies.. and the only fireflies I saw afterwards were whitish in color.  The orbs were also much brighter than the random wavering lines that rose upwards from my yard thereafter.

I was definitely startled to see this in my own backyard.  I felt no fear of the phenomenon, only a sense of shocked curiosity. In fact, after sitting a few moments once the fireflies began to rise, I stood, looked out the window and called a like-minded friend to report my experience.

On a side note.. I do not consider these orbs anything like the more commonly known spirit or ghost orbs. These were bright, well formed.. and floated/zipped past in what seemed to be a straight line, much as one mighty expect an intelligently directed probe to behave like. Very unlike any kind of spirit activity I have noted. ( Though I call them probes or 'machines'. I have - no- idea what they were other than a sense they were not 'spirit' related.  They were truly unidentified flying objects, however small.)

Thanks for your time,

Austin Experiencer

UFO changes form over Dallas & Lights dance above the clouds over Longview

Here are two recent reports from Texas that were submitted to MUFON.  Both reports are unedited.

UFO changes form over Dallas

MUFON Case # 29047
Date:    2011-05-08
Time:    19:00
City:    Sachse
State:    Texas
Shape:    Sphere
Duration:    01:00:00
Distance:    Unknown
Location:    Suburban
Visibility:    Clear
Weather:    None
Vallee Index:    MA1
Summary:    Shape-Shifting UFO hovers over Northern Dallas

My wife, 2-1/2 year old daughter, and I were in our driveway washing our dog around 7PM local time on Mother's Day. My daughter gets excited about birds and airplanes in the sky, so when we were looking at a passing commercial jetliner in a nearly cloudless sky I noticed an object considerably higher up in the atmosphere than what an airplane would fly.

The object was visible to the naked eye as a brightly shimmering sphere, and appeared just to the east of our house. It was traveling at a rate of speed that was much slower than what a commercial airplane would travel, but faster than what a satellite would travel as it orbits the earth. In fact, a crescent moon was present just to the west of the house, giving me a point of reference to determine if what I was seeing was a satellite orbiting the earth, or if it was something else. Typically, satellites do not have self-propulsion and cannot slow to a stop, as this object did.

I asked my wife to look at the object with me and she was able to locate it in the sky easily. It was traveling quite slowly and, after watching it for about 10 or 15 minutes, it ultimately stopped and hovered almost directly overhead.

We were both excited about seeing the object, but I wanted a closer look. I asked my wife to retrieve our binoculars so that we could try and get a better look at the object. With the binoculars we both were able to determine that the object was no airplane, and that it was not a satellite. I could not determine whether the silvery-white light emitting from the object was a reflection of the sun shining on it, or if it was coming from the object itself. Because of its brightness, I believe it was emitting its own light. In order to get a better look at the object through the binoculars I sat in a lounge chair and rested my head on it. This helped to "steady" the binoculars to get a better look.

The object appeared to change shapes and/or split into as many as three separate objects, each with its own light. It pulsed, expanded, and contracted as it changed shape and split. After splitting it quickly reformed back into one object. There seemed to be no pattern as it split into two or three separate objects and then reformed back into one. I watched the object(s) for almost one hour.

At around 8PM a young couple had come to our house to meet our dog (we are looking for someone to adopt her, as we are moving out of state soon), and I lost sight of the UFO. Approximately 30 minutes later the couple had left and I tried to locate the UFO again. Unfortunately, clouds began to roll in from the west and I was unable to locate it.

Lights dancing in the clouds over Longview

MUFON Case #  29050
Date:    2011-05-11
Time:    01:01
City:    Longview
Texas:    Texas
Shape:    Fireball,Oval,Sphere,Star-like
Distance:    500 feet or less
Location:    Town
Terrain:    Woods
Visibility:    Overcast
Weather:    Windy
Vallee Index:    AN1
Summary:    Dancing lights above the clouds

Standing outside smoking a cigarette and looked up as always, noticed nothing out of the ordinary due to overcast. walked over to shut my shed door, where the street lights were blocked by the shed and noticed 2 very bright white in color lights dancing above the clouds south, south east of my location. I of course stopped and watched for a pattern to rule out search lights or event lights such as a theater spotlight or a "batman" spotlight if you will. and noticed the brightness of these objects would fluctuate no matter the distance. i.e. instead of fading as they danced further away, they would almost pulse. get brighter going further away, more dim getting closer, then switch. get very bright up close and dim far away. there were absolutely no patterns to these lights at all. They would move very fast and slow a bit, then one would speed up and the other seemed to follow to match this. an absolutely brilliant pulsating light.

Strangest thing of all was my loss of cell phone signal and the phone itself wouldnt function for me to allocate my camera setting. when it finally worked, the lights were gone and i had nothing but my fiancee' to support this claim.

We both her a very distinct humming sound and then the sound of jets flying over. Again, you can check the weather. it's solid overcast but the jets sounded like it was literally ripping the sky apart. Which would make me believe they were using afterburners. We have military bases to the east and south of us. and there have been an increasing amount of military presence here the past few weeks. Since then we've seen strange things, tonight being the strangest of them all..especially with the presence of military force in a town with 5,000 people in it...White Oak, texas.

I've never seen a UFO, never claimed to see a UFO. All i have claimed to see tonight are 2 very bright, pulsating white lights dancing in the sky above the cloud layer. then at 1:00am hearing at least 1 jet with afterburners active. I'll leave this with you to decipher the accuracy of the claim. Thank you for you time. *(Wit's name deleted--CMS/sg)

Note:  Could the lights dancing above the clouds have been blue jets and red sprites?  You decide.


Football shaped UFO over Cincinnati

Depiction by SW

Witnesses view a football shaped object over Cheviot, Ohio. 
This report is unedited.


MUFON Case #    29040
Date:    2011-05-09
Time:    21:45
City:    Cincinnati
State:    Ohio
Shape:    Other
Distance:    500 feet or less
Location:    Suburban
Terrain:    Hills
Visibility:    Partly Cloudy
Weather:    None
Vallee Index:    FB1
Summary:    Football shaped UFO flew silently over house, joined by a 2nd one

I'm reporting this for my adult niece who is a little too freaked out. I typed her story as she told it to me:

I was sitting in the living room engrossed in an online chat with my brother. It was nearly dark outside, the front door faces north. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw piercing white and red lights shining brightly through the small windows at the top of the door. They were very bright like police lights, very piercing bright red and white lights. At first I thought it was some kind of emergency vehicle. I went to the door and on tip toes peeked out the little windows at the top of the door. I saw white and red lights all in a row and on a slant passing above the house.

I ran into the kitchen window (faces south) and that's when I got a really good look. It looked like it was moving really slowly, but it probably looked slower than it really was, from it's altitude I might guess it was moving 40mph, but I really can't say for sure. I do know I had time to run from the front to the back of a small house (2 rooms) and had to wait about 30 second for it to appear above the house in the back. I called my cousin downstairs and she saw it too.

It was a football-like shaped UFO about the size of a car with a very thin lip around the edge that had the lights on it. There were one or two bright white lights on each end and a bright red light in the middle. The white lights on the ends were thinner but longer, which is why I think there may have been two together on the ends. The red light in the middle was much larger, shorter but fatter, like doubled up. I couldn't tell what color the object was, but I didn't see any kind of shiny surface reflecting light.

I would say it was about 150 feet above the house, it was far too close to be a plane or helicopter and there was absolutely no sound and no wind from it. It paused for about 30 to 60 seconds in the sky in a clearing between some trees over the street behind mine (which is lower, I can see over those rooftops), then it moved eastward behind the trees. Then a second UFO just like it suddenly appeared in the clearing where the first was seconds before, and it moved off to the south in a very similar fashion to the first one.

My blood pressure started to rise and I started to sweat and feel really hot, even though I wasn't afraid of it, per se. My heart was racing, I guess from adrenaline. I called my aunt and mom who live less than 2 miles from here. They couldn't see it from their house, so they raced over within 5 minutes, talking to me on the phone the whole way, but the objects had disappeared behind trees by the time they got there and they didn't see them.

End of my niece's story. I'm the aunt she called and I will tell you that she was extremely tense when she called us, so we kept her on the phone while we raced over as fast as we could. She was describing in very anxious tones exactly what she was seeing while it was happening begging us to please hurry! Unfortunately, it was gone by the time we got there not 5 minutes later, but I believe my niece. She doesn't know ANYTHING about UFOs, stuff like this never even crosses her mind. She was afraid we would think she was making it up, but I could tell by the anxiety in her voice this was all very real, plus she had a second witness in her cousin who also lives in the house.

This sighting occurred over Cheviot, Ohio which borders the west side of the city of Cincinnati proper and is a very populated area with lots of houses and street lights.

I had her sketch a picture of what she saw immediately after she told us about it. Unfortunately I'm unable to scan it tonight, but I'll keep it and hopefully can add it to this report later.
In the meantime, she went online to look for things that were similar. She said the lights looked a lot like this UFO Oregon shot, only without the one light on the top.
And she said it was similar in shape to the Trinidad shot, only the lip that circumvents it was much less pronounced, and held the lights.

Photo of Object Near Moon?

An amateur photographer/astronomer was taking photos of the moon, when he captured something that appears to be flying around the moon.  Here is his "unedited" report submitted to MUFON.

I enlarged and cropped the object for a better view of it.  To see the original photos, please click on the photo links below this report. -SW


MUFON Case #  29018
Event Date:    2011-05-05
Time:    20:45
City:    Tucson
State:    Arizona
Shape:    Fireball,Other
Duration:    00:00:30
Distance:    Unknown
Vallee Index:    AN1
Summary:    Photo Coincidence-Something (appears to be) traveling beyond Moon orbit.

I enjoy taking photos of the different phases of the moon. I do so on a regular basis, opportunity premitting. I was off on Thursday (05-05-11) and out in the yard w/dog around 20:?? I saw a nice photo op of the Moon sliver 2nd day after new. I went and grabbed my camera (Fuji Finepix S1000fd)and tripod. I shoot in manual mode and as I'm a rookie amature, I start low with shutter speed and quick check the display and adjust accordingly.

As for the Event, I didn't really see it in full bloom until I transferred the photos to pc. I took a series of about 20 pics. Since I can only send 3 files, I will focus on the first 5 pics taken. The first 2 (#49 & 50, not incl) were overexposed (approx 6 sec. exp). The next two, #51 & 52, are the shots of interest. Both shots are at 1 sec exposure (the Moon shot value is lame as I was warming up, but...). I also include #53 as it taken within the same minute as 51 & 52 but shows nothing but the Moon.

On shot (#51), (set for a 1 sec exposure w/2 sec delay) I noticed a red spot on my screed display of my "moon shot". As I didn't see it with my naked eye, I thought it was probably some "noise" so I refocused and took another shot (same settings)approx. 30 seconds later. This time I noticed 2 red dots (on the review screen) well below the area where I saw the first (in relation to the moon).

I was kinda curious but didn't want to miss the photo op for the moon sliver so continued my shoot.

About an hour later, I uploaded the pics to my pc and took a look. After some magnification, I know what I think I see. Curious as to what you come up with.

One of the suggestions here is to descibe how I feel during, after etc.;

I am an avid astronomer who sincerely believes in other intelligent life somewhere out yonder but also believe that if "they" are smart enough they can see us, We won't see them. Gotta stay open minded though.

I hope these pics have enough resoulution for you decipher something of value/interest and you have as much fun looking at them as I do.

Directed UFO Watching? And a Special Message

A witness claims that someone from NASA directed them to watch UFOs and that their family had dealings with men in black.

Here is that unedited report:

MUFON Case # 28980
Event Date:    1964-11-30
City:    Friendswood & Alvin
State:    Texas
Shape:    Disc,Oval
Distance:    Unknown
Entity Type:    Unknown
Vallee Index:    AN1
Summary:    our family would locate and watch them

My Father worked at Todd Ship Yard.NASA would call him with the latitude and longitude of UFO's, he then would call home and give this info. to our Mother, and then we would go outside and take turns watching them. We did this as if we were watching a TV show each night.nothing to make a big deal over.Our family friends were Mr. Glen and also Mr.Carpenter.The ones we saw in Alvin, the guys in black would show up, they said they were salesmen and would go house to house and ask what they saw. They claimed it was gas burn off from the oil wells or swamp gas. As if we didn't know what that looked like. The men in black blocked off the road and would not let us go check on the lights coming from our friends home area.

            Special Message!

To my readers who are Mothers, please know that you are appreciated.   Have a very Happy Mother's Day.

I am a mom and grandma too, so I am taking the rest of the day off.  See you back here on Monday!

UFO Caught in a Satellite Image of Earth


"I was watching the dish earth channel on satellite."

Whether you are a UFO watcher or not, you may have done as I have, sat staring at the Dish Network Satellite image of Earth.  If nothing else, it is a beautiful view of our world.

Recently, one Dish Earth viewer saw something besides Earth, Venus or the Moon, so he took photos of his TV screen.  Below is the unedited report that was submitted to


MUFON Case # 28974

I was watching the dish earth channel showing my wife how the earth looks like from space and saw a round object move through the screen and go behind the earth.At first I thought is was the moon but it was to small and I checked where the moon was supposed to be on that date and it didnt add up. Then I thought it was a planet but it is to big to be one because planets look like dots even through big to be a satillite.I just held my kodak camera up to the T.V and took pictures of it moving and going behind the earth and then coming out the other side and moving out of sight of the dish earth satillite camera.I have been watching the channel since and havent seen it again.I tried to zoom in on my tv screen and get a close up.I downloaded the pics to my computer and sending them to you. Ithink my date on camera was wrong but the date on the dish earth channel is on there. Im sure you could get the actual footage from dish earth channel since I have their time and date on the pics. If you find out what it is tell me please.I have over 60 pics I took going through the screen I dont know If I attached them send to you the right way If you didnt get them all let me know and I will try again. Thank you for your time.

Dish Earth

 EchoStar 11 spacecraft, a high powered satellite launched in 2008, to a geosynchronous orbit at 110 degrees west longitude, providing video service for DISH Network customers.

In April of 2009, the DISH Network Channel announced the launch of DISH Earth, a channel exclusively available to DISH Network customers.  Dish Earth offers live views of Earth 24 hours per day and can be seen on Dish Network, Channel 287.

A camera offering a 30 degree x 22.4 degree field-of-view of Earth, was installed on DISH Network's EchoStar 11 satellite, providing the world's first Earth-directed camera mounted on a commercial communications satellite, from a distance of approximately 22,300 miles above Earth.

With a resolution of about 20 km per pixel, the camera aboard EchoStar 11 and located over the western hemisphere, allows us to observe objects in the visible spectrum (similar to the human eye), Earth's night/day cycles, weather patterns and seasonal changes, including views of the moon, Venus and even an occasional unidentified flying object.
