Full Description & Details



On May 12th,2004 at about 9:30 in the evening, I was driving home after stopping at a store

after work. I was working the evening shift at a local hospital at that date in time.

I was headed north on Rte 9 towards the Academy St. exit in the city of Poughkeepsie.

I saw what looked like a row of lights in the sky slowly approaching--they were red and green and blinking slowly. As I proceeded to drive up the long hill that makes up the exit ramp,I watched the object. I could make out a large, boomerang-shaped craft with dark grey fuselage--the lights were arranged in a row along the length of the object. It was HUGE. It was silent. It was no jet--a jet doesn't cruise slowly and silently, especially at such a low altitude.

I wish I had pulled over to get a better look--as it was, the object disappeared over the treetops and I continued on my way.

There were many cars on Rte 9 that evening--yet there were no reports of any sighting by anyone else

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

no

Summary:

Was outside having a fire with my friends. Above my house about 50 metres, we see a disc shaped object flying completely horizontally at a steady speed.

Sighting Time:

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses:

Duration: 

15 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Disc shaped, looked to be black, had flashing red lights and steady white lights.

Size of Object(s)

If I held my arms infront of me, I'd have to stretch my fingers about 3-4 inches. It was pretty big.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

It looked to be very close to us. Maybe 30 ft.

Description of Area / Surroundings

The surrounding area is suburban.

Full Description & Details

The three of us were just sitting around the fire telling stories, when we all look up above my house to see the disc shape. It had flashing lights on it, and was going a steady speed across the sky. It took about 15 seconds to fully pass our sight. The shape looked to be maybe 30ft in diameter. Many people saw it that night. News stations got bombarded with sightings. The next morning, our local news tells people that it was an "asteroid". This shows me that they are covering something up. What we saw was not an asteroid. There is no way it was an asteroid. Asteroids aren't disc shaped with flashing lights.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No. This didn't look like anything that I've seen before.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I always kind of believed that aliens existed, but didn't research it at all. After the sighting I've been more keen to researching aliens/ufo reports.

Location:

Orem, Utah, United States

Summary:

I saw three star-like objects moving around in the sky in a pattern similar to that of insects. The sighting lasted for over an hour before I went inside. The lights were still there.

Sighting Time: 

12:15 a.m.

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses:

Duration: 

Over an hour

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The light looked like a star, but seemed to have flickers of either red or yellow sporadically. At times it looked like a smaller light split up from the top, but that might just have been my eyes. I had seen two airplanes prior to this light and it looked nothing like either of them. As I was watching around 12:35, a third plane flew by. The light was brighter than those of that particular airplane. I also saw a satellite and what I presume was a helicopter. It looked nothing like them, either.

Size of Object(s)

Star-sized

Description of Area / Surroundings

It's a middle-class residential area in an average city. The sky was very clear.

Full Description & Details

Around 12:15 a.m. on July 23, 2014, I was walking to my door in southeastern Orem, Utah. For the record, I am a 27-year-old female. I was wearing glasses, but saw what I saw with them both on and off. I was looking at the sky because it was a very clear night and noticed a light to the west that was equivalent to the brighter stars. It was moving around in a flitting pattern, much like an insect, but on a smaller scale. I stood and watched it for about 10 minutes and then sat down to commence watching.

The light looked like a star, but seemed to have flickers of either red or yellow sporadically. At times it looked like a smaller light split up from the top, but that might just have been my eyes. I had seen two airplanes prior to this light and it looked nothing like either of them. As I was watching around 12:35, a third plane flew by. The light was brighter than those of that particular airplane, yet it was much further away. I am basing the distance estimates on that the amount the light moved in comparison to the plane. They were moving at about equal speeds. I also saw a satellite and what I presume was a helicopter. It looked nothing like them, either. At 12:41, my boyfriend (25) reported that he could see it from southwestern Provo, Utah, one city over.

Around 12:45, I was recording it on my phone. Before I could turn on the recording button, it looked like four smaller pinkish lights fusing into one (the pinkness, I am pretty certain, is from the phone). That might just have been my phone, but it didn’t do it again. As I was filming it, the light just disappeared altogether. I stopped filming and a few moments later it was back in the sky. (Note: On the film, it looks like the movement could be due to shakiness. I held it as steadily as I could. If anything, any movement on my part cancelled out some of its. I did not zoom in. The camera also makes it appear further away than it was. The light was moving more noticeable distances in person.)

At 12:48, I moved and noticed a smaller light that had been covered by a tree. It was also moving in a similar fashion, though it was smaller and not as bright. It was down and a bit to the north from the first light. I held out my arm and the distance between the two was about equal to that of my thumb, erring on the side of a little closer. (I’m a woman.)

At 12:55, I went inside to get my telescope. I noticed another smaller moving light a bit higher up in the sky and to the south. Its movements were not as drastic as the first one, which along with its size made me believe it was further away. It looked a little more bluish.

By 12:58, I was back outside setting up my telescope. All three lights were still present. I’m an amateur and out of practice, so I had a hard time honing in on the light. It didn’t help that it was moving. Twice I had it move across my lens, but it wasn’t focused. The light appeared to have a pinkish tint, though. I made my best guess at what settings would make it focused and looked in the same spot for a few minutes. It didn’t show up through my lens again.

At 1:26, I went back inside. At the time I left, two lights were still visible. The first light had migrated a little bit down and to the north. It was not a great distance, though. It had retained the same disorganized pattern of movement the whole time. The second light had moved along with the first and was no longer visible from my spot, but was likely just covered by the house next to mine. The third light was still to the south. I immediately commenced writing this report upon reentering the house.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I do not believe it was a natural object. I cannot think of any man-made object that would behave as it did for that long of a time, but I cannot rule out the possibility.

Witness Background

I am a student and freelance editor.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I definitely believe in UFOs. Whether or not they are aliens is the question. I have probably slightly above average knowledge of UFOs.

Description of Area / Surroundings

A big special engineering military superbase called brompton barracks with lots of research and higher up personnel, as well and numerous midsized regular army bases

Full Description & Details

I was young and going out for 'trick or treat'ing with my mother, we lived in an area called Luton in one of the denser parts of the area, there was however on the horizon a very dense forest leading away from the towns (picture you have the metropolis spillover and highways of London in one direction then 270° from that you have nothing but remote agrarian areas and forests leading all the way to the channel and the Atlantic), now from my house the thick forest horizon was very plain and easy to see (Chatham - a lower middle wealth part of Medway, where I live - was in a deepish valley and the gentle slope from the bottom - the residential areas of Chatham - upward is all dense forestry, farms and fields, away from the house my mum was occupied away and I was left on the side of the road (I weren't terribly young and it was earlyish maybe 18:30-20:00) so I decided to stargaze as I often would, toward the agrarian area with no light pollution or lights, and as clear as day as real as my own legs lights appeared on the horizon, it was about as long as a bus and about as tall as one, but complimented with a full circle shape and a myriad of lights, it fell from the sky silently and very dream-like, into the forests about 30 miles away on the edge of the horizon, leaving only a column of light grey smoke (clearly visible despite the low amount light), I'm afraid I don't have more to offer then that.

bolton on dearne, yorkshire, United Kingdom

Summary:

me and my wife just married in september 1980 were walking home from mexborough late at night. we were approaching the old burt bolton timber yard, when we were stopped in our tracks virtually underneath this huge object about 30 to 40 metres above us. it was awash with light every where.we stayed there for about thirty minutes i guess not really saying a lot, and then we walked off while it was still there. it reminds me of the last scene of close encounters of the third kind when the craft was landing. it really was very very similar. unforgettable, yes, scary, no.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was night, could not tell a shape, just remember first looking like airlane lights, and then when closer very large, bright orange lights all over it., now just a few like an ordinar aircraft.

Size of Object(s)

Only time we saw size was when it was diving towards us. It was probably about 10 times larger than our car.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Ranged from very far distance, to almost hitting us.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was not urban and not rural. It was a main street but very quiet night. Very few cars. We did notice one car driving. He had his head out and wndow and was watching. I do remember hearing no noise at all, even with the windows down.

Full Description & Details

I have told very few people about this incident. It happened in 1965, possibly fall because windows in the car were closed and it was on a Sunday night before school. Reason why never reported is that I and companions, were 17 years old, and I am sure no one would have believed us. I am still looking for an exlanation.

It was a Sunday night and lots of sightings around the country were being reported. In fact , we had a magazine at home with ufo's on the cover. It was kind of a joke with my boyfriend always teasing me about any light in the sky, plane, etc, saying look there is a ufo. This night was no different. There were three of them, and at first looked just like 3 airplane lights in the distance. After watching for awhile they were still visible, and 3 were flying together. After about 15 minutes they were separating. and coming back together. Sometimes one was alone and then all 3 together. Sometimes they did a quick circular movement and shot off and then came back together in a group of 3. We though possibly Air Force doing some type of maneuver. We observed this for quite a while and decided to go to my house and check out the magazine and see if it could shed some light on this. As we came closer to my house, the objects were getting lower and lower. We knew these could not be airplanes, as they would have been long gone by now. My house was about a mile and a half from the original site and they were still with us. Because they were flying much lower (still looking like airplane lights at this point), we were getting more curious and anxious. We ran up the stairs and told the family. My mother always believed us because of the way we looked when we rushed for the magazine. Nothing in it made any sense to us because the objects were in daylight and we could not compare the lights we saw and could not see a shape. We stayed at my house for about 20 minutes, forgot about it and went back out. We thought that was the end of it. To our surprise, one of them was hovering, not really low, but definitely lower than they were before, above my mother's house. Now we were shocked. We decided to go and find our friend and tell her. She lived about a mile from my house. The objects followed us (or seemed so) all the way to her house. We ran up and told her and her dad what we saw. Her dad opened the blinds and saw them. He said they looked strange enough, but could not believe they were in our sight for over an hour, and said that was impossible. Remember, we were teenagers, and we knew people would never believe us. We were actually looking for an explanation ourselves, because we did not believe it ourselves. Meanwhile, my friend was in the back seat of our car and getting very emotional. The objects were getting lower and lower and still following us, or so it seemed to us. All 3 of us were looking out the back window, like I said we were teenagers and safety went right out the window. My girlfriend turned and looked forward and screemed. We both turned back to the front window and freaked out because one of them was literally diving at our car. It came so low we though it was going to hit us. All I remember to this day is bright orange lights, not a few, but it was covered with bright orange lights, so much that we could not see a shape. My boyfriend was so sure it was going to hit us that he turned and swerved the car into the exit of a Big Boy drive through restaurant, probably the first one of its kind for that time. I remember hitting him because I was so scared that he would get us in a crash cause he did not even look to see if there were any cars coming. He said he swore it was going to crash into us and we believed we came that close and if we did not swerve, it would have. We went to find another friend to share this with, they were now flying a little higher above us, but still visible. My boyfriend ran into this teen dance we were all supposed to meet at and ran in to find our friend. He came running out. We wanted to show him so bad, but now they were gone. We drove around for about another half hour looking to see if we could find them and we never did. To this day, our friend believes we were pranking him. It has now been 49 years since.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Definitely not a natural object. It was man-made and like I said came close enough to almost hit us and we had to swerve to avoid collision.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Never thought much about it before. Became an interest after that. Listened to radio talk shows after that, John Wallace Spencer and Blue Book Project.

ruralish suburb. Very little light polution.

Full Description & Details

I was camping in a field with some friends to celebrate the end of our exams. We all saw a long baton shaped thing high in the sky that appeared to be spinning with green lights at each end.

There was no noise and it was definitely not a plane. I could not tell the colour of the vehicle but I could make out the the colour of the lights at each end. The weather had been warm that day and the sky was very clear with many stars visible. These lights were not stars, they appeared to spin for about 2 minutes then they were gone as suddenly as they had appeared. the time was probably between 9 and 10 pm.

It was pretty high in the sky not like some of the other accounts you hear about where they are really low down this was probably about the height of maybe a 20 storey block of flats and about 60-80 ft long.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

this was not anything that could've been made here, I dont know of any aircraft or satelite that spins!!!

Witness Background

I was 16 at the time, full time student, I've since gained many university qualifications in fine art, english literature, teaching and Law. I'm currently a full time mum.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have a natural curiosity but no more than anyone else. This has not changed since my sighting. I've always been pretty open minded, the universe is a big place!
