Cigar UFO reported hovering over small Minnesota town

A Minnesota witness at Currie recalls a UFO incident from 2002 where a group of adults and children watched a silent, hovering, cigar-shaped object, according to testimony in Case 65066 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident occurred about 2 p.m. on July 3, 2002, when four adults, ages 22-29, and two children were outside on a farm about one mile east and one-half mile north of Currie, on an 80-degree day with few clouds in the sky.

“We had just shot off some fireworks, but nothing aerial, just small group reporters (black cat firecrackers) and some colored smoke bombs,” the reporting witness stated.

Then one of the adults noticed something odd in the sky to their northeast and asked what it was.

“When we first saw the metallic, cigar-shaped craft, it appeared to be about a mile away, moving toward us steadily and slowly. Not knowing the object’s size, I’m just guessing at these distances.”

The group estimated that the object was about 400 feet long.

“It looked like it was rather large, like it could have been the size of the Goodyear blimp. The shape was not ‘blimp-shaped,’ more cigar and shiny, possibly surrounded by a haze, but it may have been sun glare of the craft’s shiny exterior.”

The group watched the object wondering about what it could be and how far away it was.

“Again, I do not know how big it was, nor the exact distances. As we pointed out the craft to the others they came over toward us. At this point the craft just stopped and hovered. There was no sound, no wind, just the shiny object floating. We all agreed that we had no idea what we were looking at.”

They attempted to get binoculars for a better look.

“I asked my son to fetch the binoculars. As he ran back to the house, the object stayed, and when he started running back with the binoculars the craft flew away silently, steadily, and rapidly to the northeast until we could no longer see it.”


The object eventually moved quickly out of the area before the group could retrieve binoculars for a better look. Pictured: Currie, MN. (Credit: Google Maps)

Spherical-shaped UFO reported hovering over Oregon town

An Oregon witness at Sisters reported watching a “silver object” hovering over a nearby tree line before shooting off erratically to the east, according to testimony in Case 65105 in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving northwest along Highway 20 near Sisters just before the Black Butte Ranch when the object was first seen about 8:30 a.m. on April 30, 2015.

“I dipped my head down slightly to get a better look at the butte and then I noticed a silver spherical object hovering somewhere above the height of the tree line ahead of me and before the butte,” the witness stated.

The UFO sighting was very short.

“It only remained there a brief moment before shooting eastward over the tree line with a slightly erratic path. The entire sighting only lasted two or three seconds, but it was during daylight, and the object was well lit by sunlight and close enough that I could see any details that would identify it as a regular craft such as a helicopter.”

But the object did not look like anything that the witness could identify.

“Instead it looked like a silvery spherical object that appeared fuzzy as though it had heat ripples around it.”

The witness is sure that it was not anything that could be identified.

“It was far enough away that if it had been a balloon, it should have been much smaller and not hovered/accelerated like it did.”
