The witness was on his way to pickup a girlfriend from work about 6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 29, 2015, when the objects were first seen.

“As I approached her work I was stopped due to an Amtrak train passing by, but as I approached the crossing (one block away) I noticed an object moving very quickly with a rapidly flashing light that caught my attention.”

The witness first thought he was observing a drone.

“But as I got closer and came to a stop I could see that it was rather large – four feet or so – and much too fast and erratic in its flight to be any drone easily available for the public. Then as the train started to pass, another object, similar in flight characteristics but different in design appeared– but this one had appendages.”

The two objects seemed to be aware of each other.

“They seemed to interact almost playfully hovering and almost touching while the train passed.”

The witness was able to take several photos at this time.


“As the train was gone a few minutes, they each shot off in different directions rather quickly and abruptly.”

The witness pulled into a parking lot about one block away to wait for his girlfriend.

“I noticed one of the objects hovering about 100+feet in the air near me with a solid light.”

The witness has had other recent experiences seeing UFOs including something seen from a home window.

“I got up to use the bathroom and noticed a large, very bright apparition through my window, about 75feet in the air. It hovered for around five minutes and slowly moved out of sight in a linear path. I took photos of this as well.”

Alameda County, California, has a population of 1,510,271.


Low flying triangle UFO spotted over Tennessee

A Tennessee witness at Columbia reported watching a slow moving, triangle-shaped UFO with bright white and red lights, according to testimony in Case 73483 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was walking to his mini van parked on his driveway to pick up his girlfriend from workwhen he saw three “incredibly bright lights” moving toward him.

“The lights were moving parallel to Highway 31 from the north towards the south,” the witness stated.“The object was moving so slow and the lights were so bright it made me stop instantly in my tracks.”

The witness could not see the body of the craft, but could tell it was large and quickly became curious how it was moving so slow without falling.

“The three bright lights/object were heading behind the roof tops of the homes to my left so I went and got into the van, pointing north, waiting for it to reappear on my side of roof tops. Well, that took a tiny bit longer than expected. It either slowed down more or stopped for a brief second, but finally crossed over the roof tops back into view. Once the object was in my sight again I could start to see the bottom of the object and it started making a banked turn.”

The witness said that looking at the bottom of the craft was a complete surprise.

“It was totally lit up with multiple large, bright lights, and I could see a perfect triangular outline of the object.”

The witness described the lights.

“Funny thing is while coming at me I saw no outline at all. Color of the large lights was incredibly bright white and the smaller ones were incredibly bright red.”

The object was moving west, slightly southwest, at the same slow pace as it was originally while the witness got a good look at it.

“Looking at it from behind it had a rectangular shape. To guess, I would go with around 15-20 feet thick.

There were two lit up areas in red that were rectangular in shape to the right and left of the center rear end of object.”

The craft continued moving to the west towards his girlfriend’s work area.

“I jumped in the van and followed it towards her job until it went out of sight beyond the skyline. Someone else had to see this thing fly over our town.”

Michigan witness says low flying UFO reflected ‘rainbow of colors’

A Michigan witness at Ypsilanti reported a sphere-shaped UFO hovering just 30 feet over the roadway about 8:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve that seemed to refract a rainbow of colors, according to testimony in Case 73533 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving eastbound along Textile Road near Cherrywood Drive on December 31, 2015, with his wife and son as passengers when they noticed an object hovering over the road.

“The portion of the object that was visible was orange in color, however, in total it looked that it was much larger with the majority of the object shrouded in a mist,” the witness stated.“My wife felt that the object was higher in the sky and well above the trees, but I perceived it to be only feet above the road at treetop level or just below treetop level.”

The witness drove directly under the glowing area of the object.

“I looked at it carefully as I slowed the car. The glowing portion of the object was very obscured and displaying multiple colors. I think the best way to describe it would be as if you were looking through a lens shrouded in a mist which refracted the light into a rainbow of colors.”

The witness also noticed an object attached to the main object.

“My observation was that I perceived an appendage or mast that protruded from this area of the object and I believe it was generating the mist that shrouded the rest of the object. There looked to be a lot going on with changing shapes, patterns and colors. Again I believe the object was only 20 to 30 feet above us at this time.”

The witness stopped his vehicle along Cherrywood Drive and he and his son got out for a better look – but noticed the object was gone.

“My wife at this time expressed concern that a man on the sidewalk was staring at us, so we got back in the car, turned it around, turned right back onto Textile Road and continued eastbound along Textile Road.”

The group caught up with the UFO again.

“As we were turning back onto Textile we acquired the object again, only this time it was east of us traveling north crossing over Textile Road. Watching the object as we drove along the highway it changed direction and began traveling in a northeasterly direction. It was traveling slowly and was darting from side-to-side as it moved in a northeasterly direction. Judging size and distance was difficult as my wife believes it was much higher in the sky whereas I’m certain it could not have been much higher than 30 feet above us. Very weird and very strange.”

Michigan MUFON Chief Investigator Daniel Snow is investigating.

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County, MI, population 19,435.


Jet passenger videotapes cylinder UFO near Puerto Rico

A witness flying between Florida and Puerto Rico reported watching and videotaping a cylinder-shaped UFO that appeared to be hovering at an altitude below the jet’s 37,000 feet, according to testimony in Case 56602 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.


 WATCH: UFO over Puerto Rico

 


The incident occurred about 11:15 a.m. on March 12, 2014, and was reported to MUFON on May 25, 2014. The case was investigated by Ohio MUFON State Director Thomas Wertman and closed as an Unknown.

The witness said the skies were clear flying to Puerto Rico on Jet Blue Flight #1938 which departed from Orlando, FL, at 10:15 a.m. and was expected to land at 12:59 p.m. The object was seen approximately 45 minutes prior to landing “north of Mona Passage.”

“My daughters and I noticed and observed this UFO. We were not the only ones observing this anomaly. I heard others commenting about it. But this object was hovering or stationary which was very unusual.”

The witness attempted to rule out other known objects.

“Upon my arrival I checked different places online to see if any stars or satellite were visible during that period of time. My search revealed nothing. Also you can see the top and bottom of it and of course it is cylindrical. I can’t tell you how big it was since there was no background solid object to compare with.

The object appears to expand and contract and is a silver/metallic color.”

Wertman stated in his report that Mediainfo was used to extract the metadata information.

“The witness used a Kodak C813 digital camera. Date and time was March 12, 2014, at 11:22 a.m. The witness stated the video was taken about 45 minutes before the end of the flight and the flight was to arrive at 12:59 p.m. The flight information was retrieved from the Flightaware website.

“The Aircraft did not arrive at 12:59 p.m., but at 12:37p.m. If the witness’s approximate time is correct the aircraft would have been off the Turks Islands. The witness’s estimate of 45 minutes appears incorrect. Using the camera’s data time of 11:22 p.m. places the aircraft near San Salvador. This is closer to the CMS report of date and time.

“In the video the witness is seen pointing at an object. The object does not appear to be a reflection from the window. The object is not moving consistently with the camera shake. The witness also appears to be pointing down at the object.

“According to the flight path the aircraft was flying at 37, 000 feet. The object appears to be below this altitude. The object appears to be stationary and is highly reflective. If the object is an aircraft, it may be moving in the same direction and appears to be stationary.

“The data from Flightaware combined with the video is inconclusive on identifying the object. The case is classified as Unknown – UAV.”


‘Huge’ triangle UFO disappears as New Jersey witness watches

A New Jersey witness at Vernon reported watching a low flying, “huge” triangle UFO that quickly faded and disappeared from view, according to testimony in Case 73418 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was camping in Vernon on September 15, 2014, and returning to his tent when the incident occurred.

“I just decided to take a gaze up at the sky because it was really clear out and out of nowhere I noticed this huge black, long triangular craft with several steady white lights,” the witness stated. “And it appeared to be the bottom of the craft.”

The witness described how the craft moved.

“It seemed to slowly just creep along the tree line. And once it reached the treeline out in front of me, it just seemed to fade out and disappear.”

The object was very large and was silent.

“This thing was giant. Like a flying aircraft carrier and it made no sound. Was that low and just disappeared does not make sense.”

The witness provided investigators with a sketch of the object. No photos or videos were included with the report, which was filed on December 30, 2015. New Jersey MUFON Chief Investigator Ken Pfeifer is investigating.
