Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

100+

Duration: 

approx 20 mins

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

saucer shaped underneath but seemed to peak at the top of the object.

Size of Object(s)

at arms length the size of less than the width of a pea

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

approx 1500 to 2000 feet up

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban ..first sighted on perimeter of town where others were watching it and then walked 500 mts outside of town and watched it from there. Only Gatwick Airport about 10 miles away no Miltary or other instalations as far as I know.

Full Description & Details

Just outsides Redhill Town centre when I met some friends who asked if I had seen ' it ', and looked up. I thought 'you are not catching me out' so ignored them and walked on towards town centre. I noticed cars stopping and loads of people looking up, so I looked and at first only saw a single small white cloud in an otherwise clear blue sky. Realising that couldnt be just what they all were looking at I kept looking.

As my eyes focused, there was an dark disc partially behind the small cloud on the right side. For nearly 20 minutes we watched it , always just on the edge of the cloud or partially obscured. Then it suddenly started flying away from the cloud towards Redstone Hill/Earlswood, so we followed it on foot until it disappeared behind the hill.

The friend I had been watching it with and myself walked to my parents house in nearby Earlswood, and my stepmother told they had been watching it in Earlswood village about a mile and half away. It was seen by a huge number of people, but in those days I didn't have a camera so have no proof. We phoned the operator (no mobiles then) and asked to be put through to the nearest RAF base. We asked if anyone else had reported something strange, but all he said was can we have your names and addressesand we thought we might be laughed at so went no further. It is so vivid in my mind it seems like yesterday not 40 odd years ago, but without photographic proof who is going to take notice. I know what I saw was weird, as it was in an otherwise perfectly clear sky, the object was not a weather balloon and looked solid. From that day to this I have never seen anything that couldnt be explained and it still intrigues me.

It flew away from the motionless cloud and as it was the same altitude, if it were a balloon the cloud would have drifted with it. Total mystery which I will never resolve, but I swear its true and at the time had loads of witnesses (everybody in Redhill out shopping on a Saturday morning) Some people said they saw it very much lower, but I am only stating what I saw.

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

absolutly not definitly not a balloon, helicopter ,plane (and we didnt have remote control toys availible in those days) it was too low for a satelite and was static in the sky for a long time.

Witness Background

I have been in supervisory and management capacity for over 35 years, have had responsibility and been security cleared as I have worked for the military.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Had no thoughts on the subject at all up until the sighting (and as I said I thought my mates were just trying to make us look up as a joke) . But since the sighting I have tried my best to read everything about the subject. I would just like to know what I saw. But since I have had the internet I have read that so many people like myself have had sightings so I now talk about it to my family. It isnt something you can discuss to just anyone as they think you are nuts.

Other Comments

the strangest thing was the small cloud looked unatural in an otherwise clear blue sky. And especially that the object/saucer seemed literally to be using it as a sort of cover., but it was as I said directly behind on the R/H leading edge all the time it was static tne even though it was the same height as the cloud moved eastwards leaving the cloud seeminly in the same place. If it had have been a balloon they both would have drifted off together.

Full Description & Details

My brother Gustavo Adolfo Enrique Garcia Ocando, Venezuelan, was on a plane in a flight from Maracaibo to Caracas. A friend of him took a photo with my brother's cellphone, a Samsung Galaxy S3. In the photography an UFO is seen. Right by the time the photo was taken, the pilot received an electromagnetic anomaly, as he told my brother when he showed the photo tho the pilot. My brother sent the photo to the pilot to investigate... But by my own experience that photo won't go out so I told him to send it to me and I'll post it here. If some needs the full size image to check the fidelity of my story, I can send it in HQ. I'm doing this in behalf of my brother because he has language issues.

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

At that height and speed, do not think that it can be explained.

Witness Background

I'm a physician (General Practitioner) wit 6 years of experience.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Just THC documentaries, not much.

Other Comments

I wasn't the one who saw it but I can give you my brother's info so you can contact him; but he doesn't speak english. So I think It'd be better for you to contact him through me.

Day/Night: 

Dusk/Evening

No. of Witnesses:

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Dark grey to black. It seemed to have rounded edges but could not see the top at all. There were no lights shining at this time. I could not make out any depressions or protrubances along the bottom. It was travelling with one of the points forward.

Size of Object(s)

I'm not good with measurements so I can't say exactly how big but at an angle, it covered four lanes of traffic. As I said, it was very large.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was in an agricultural area just outside of a medium sized town close to the Chesapeake Bay. There was a military base several miles to the northeast at or near Dover MD.

Full Description & Details

It was twilight, the sky was clear and a peach color. My husband and I were at a stop light coming back to Annapolis from a visit to show my daughters Ocean City. We were at a stop light when on our left coming over a hill and continuing over us and going toward the Air Force base in Dover, MD was a very large triangle that covered a four lane highway. We were able to watch it pass over a farmhouse about a quarter of a mile beyond us and then the light turned and we had to continue on toward home.

I could not see any details of the craft and at the time, my husband and I dismissed it as an experimental craft of the AF. Since then and hearing of all of the black triangle UFO reports, it was probably one of those craft.

I did not know of any places to report the sighting to, so did not report it until about 2 years ago when I reported it to MUFON. It was a very brief report, similar to this one.

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

No.

Witness Background

At this time I was a secretary for the government. I had an AA. Later I got my BA and finally got an MA and worked as an archaeologist for a couple of years. Then opened up a yarn shop in Toledo, OR. Am now retired.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always believed in UFOs. I had read quite a bit before the sighting as I had seen 2 fire balls when I was about 10 years old and there was no fire after seeing them.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a round disk with lights beaming off of it. The body of the disk was gray,/metallic in color. The lights coming from it was a orange/reddish/ yellow color. As it rotated around it had the lights all around it. It was brighter as it got closer.

Size of Object(s)

The only way I know how to say this, is that it was BIG! Nothing like I have ever seen before, Maybe a football field wide or more.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Sometimes it was way up in the sky, and it would shoot down as close as 200 yrs, I guess.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was a rural area, my family all lived on airport road, now called sunlight road, and the airport was right over the hill from my home, maybe 2 football fields or more from my house. The dogs would bark like crazy when this all was going on!

Full Description & Details

To start out with I was a around 8- 10 years old when I first seen the UFO[my first]. I lived in Ellijay GA, by the airport, so I was aware of small air craft my whole life seeing we lived in a small town. As a kid I always played outside un till it got dark, I was so scared of the dark, so I would go inside, or my grandma would make me be in by dark. So my point is here, I never wanted to be outside after dark alone. Ok here is when it all started, I use to sit and look at the moon as it came up before the night set in, and then I would go in the house as it got dark, but one night, I did not... It was like I was pulled to stay outside and look into the sky, and what I seen was out of this world!! I don't know why I stayed outside sitting in my driveway looking into the sky, it was like something was making me. I seen this round object with lights around it, it would stay in one spot and then shoot across in a pattern in the sky like a triangle. Now I would have NEVER sat in my driveway alone in the dark EVER, it was like it was communicating with me, and I did not feel not fear. For about 3 weeks this went on. It would seem to call me out to the driveway to sit and watch it for a hour or so, sometimes less. For some reason this made me feel like I was a peace, and they would not hurt me. I wanted to tell my, mom, brother, grandma, but I thought no one would believe me. As nights went on the object[UFO] would get closer to me, it came so close one night that I thought it was going to land, so I went in and told my grandma, and she said stop being silly, and get your butt to bed. I pulled on her arm for some reason[ you did not back talk grandma] and said please look out the window, and when she did, she started screaming saying call 911, call 911.. And for some strange reason I was clam as ever and said no grandma, 911 would not believe what we had seen. She was so scared running around the house locking the doors, and we went back to look at the Object out the window, it was so close, and then after about 10 sec, it vanished up into the sky. I have never seen my grandma so scared, and to this day I do not know why I was never scared of it, but yet felt drawn to it. I have only told this to a few people because I did not want them to think I was a crazy girl. I have also had other things happen, and one day I might share them, But this was my first and it started the rest of them. Believe me or not, but I have no reason to make this up, nor put it online. I am just ready to tell my story and want some answers.

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

NOWAY!!!! Like I said I seen airplanes everyday, and this was nothing I have seen.

Witness Background

I am a mother of two boys, and I am also a ex Fire Fighter. Now at this time in my life, I had knee surgery and am taking time off from everything to get better.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was a kid and just heard of them, but never seen them, nor was I aloud to even watch movies or t.v. shows about them. After I did not know what to think till I got older, and then knew what I had seen.

Other Comments

I just would like to know what I had seen, and talk to someone about other stuff that has happen to me, and stuff to this day I still witness.

Full Description & Details

This was a long time ago for me, and I was only a child at approximately ten or so. It was summer, so it was light outside even if it was quite late at night. I was just leaving a friends house on my bike when I saw a grey, flying disk hover over the channel (Tjeldsundet) going in a northern direction towards the Tjeldsund bridge. It might have been about 50 meters over the water.

Summary:

I saw a very large Wedge/Triangular shaped UFO around 9:30 PM on Dec. 15, 1977 near Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

No. of Witnesses:

Duration: 

3 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Very large, wedge-shaped/triangular, metallic looking flying craft. Four white-to-amber spotlights in a square on the bottom. Several (six or seven) smaller red, flashing lights. Two rows of oblong-shaped windows, toward the bottom of the craft, emanating a pale greenish light.

Size of Object(s)

I'd have to hold my hands out 4 to 5 feet to be able to contain the length of it.Holding my hands in front of me vertically, one on top of the other, my hands would be at least two feet apart. The thing I saw looked huge. It blocked out a large portion of sky, hiding all the starts behind it.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was in a rural area, about five miles east of Eureka Springs, and two miles north of Highway 62. I was on a high ridge dirt road at night, so going slowly. No military bases or power plants nearby that I knew about.

Full Description & Details

While driving home, between Berryville and Eureka Springs, Arkansas, at around 9:30 in the evening on FEC. 15, 1977, I saw a very large wedge or triangular shaped UFO. it was flying fairly low in the sky, not far above the treetops, and was nearby, so I could see it well. It was moving quite slowly. The UFO had four white-to-amber spotlights, arranged in a square. There were also several red blinking lights. There were two rows of windows, with a pale greenish light emanating from them. I heard absolutely no sound coming from it. I watched it for several minutes, spellbound. Then this huge thing sort of folded up on itself (sort of like origami) very quickly. The compacted version of itself then zoomed north, toward the Misspuri state line. I wrote down as many details as I could Rememner when I got home. The next morning I went to work at the Eureka Springs Times-Echo and told the owner, Bob Wheeler, what I had seen. At first he was incredulous, but soon the paper's phones were ringing with reports from police, the sheriff's office, and the radio station. I heard that Ira and Frances Whitney had sen it. I walked from the newspaper office down to their Gem Store, where I interviewed them. I also interviewed a local man named Tex Belt who had seen the UFO, called a Berryville police officer who had watched the UFO for quite awhile, Unfortunately, our weekly paper was pasted up and ready to go to print, so Bob made the decision to insert a small article rather than run a front page story.

I was so busy gathering info from others that I didn't take the time to make a report of my own. This has always bothered me.

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

Absolutely not.

Witness Background

I have a BA in Business Management and an MA in Counseling. I worked at two Carroll County newspapers in Arkansas, and later as an associate editor for the Anglican Digest. I was later a nursing home administrator in Eureka Springs. After completing my MA in Counseling, I worked for 13 years at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ. I am now semi-retired and live in Florence, Oregon with my husband of 40 years.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I gave them little thought prior to actually seeing this one. I saw this before popular movies such as Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and E.T. were released. Though some of the people I interviewed seemed to be afraid, my experience was one of awe and wonder. In fact, I stayed up for hours that night watching the sky, hoping the UFO would come back.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

There were 2 of them. They were the same size and dimensions and colors, exact matches. They were about 6 to 8 ft tall and around 4-5 feet wide --looking like box kites. They were a sold mass with some kind of dark grey metal on the bottom half and very top part, but there were shiny dark grey window-like areas on the mid upper level. There were lights of red, yellow, green and possible blue on tops and bottoms (one only each) and lights of these colors on each side of both of them. I can't remember where each color was.

Size of Object(s)

At least 6 to 10 ft tall maybe and 4 to 6 ft wide.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Distance from us: 15 to 20 ft maybe and altitude was hovering about 5 ft off the road.

Description of Area / Surroundings

rural area on the Samoa peninsula across the Bay from Eureka a city of 30,000. There are 2 communities on this 7 mile long peninsula. They are Samoa (around 1,000 people) and Manila (around 1000 people). They are 3 miles apart and 3 miles to Arcata and the Arcata bottoms. The peninsula has the bay on one side and Pacific ocean on the other. There are massive dunes all up and down the peninsula some with massive sized dunes and as large as a mile wide ( from Bay to Ocean). There are massive very old woodlands with much foilage. Many wildflowers cover the dunes once again as we have save them from beach buggies, etc.

Full Description & Details

We left my home in rural Manila where my home was surrounded by much land and dunes when about a city block away we (my friend and I) saw a supposed helicoptor sitting on the hill in front of us. It was an incredible sight! two box-kite looking metal , dark grey with shiny darkened window surrounding the tops. There was different colored lights on each side and both top and bottom and there was no sound at all. After about 20 sec. they sped off very quicky , again no sound, but the light were signalling each other. We followed them as they sped off over the Bay, Humboldt Bay to Eureka Ca. , small town of 30,000 people. they disappeared from us as we went into town to make a call to the local radio station to report this sighting. Manila where I once lived was then a small village of maybe 1,000 people and much space, now it's doubled in size. This whole episode took maybe 15 minutes and I've never forgotten. I got in touch with the UFO people somewhere in CA and they gave info to Chicago's national ufo place and I sent them a picture I drew of them.

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

Absolutely not!!!!! I was living as a very young single mother with a 2 yr old child on 3 acres and our home was in the middle very alone. I was fearful of this encounter because of the strangeness of it. I will never forget this.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

With the advent of the internet I have just now today decided to start my quest. I believe they are real and are not of this world, mother earth! Unless of coarse the gov't is covering up this information for the populace. I want to know. i have a right to know.

Other Comments

I have seen another UFO with several people around 15 yrs ago. The object was MASSIVE and round and several colorful lights surrounding it. If you want I will describe this. I know of other sightings too, accounts from family and friends.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Saucer shaped almost the size of the square ranch home it hovered over. I think the home is around 1500 square feet. The color was a glowing yellow with a pattern of 3 red and 3 white lights all the way around the edge of the saucer. The lights blinked sequencially around the saucer.

Size of Object(s)

Almost the size of a 1500 sq foot square ranch home. I think it was hovering about 20 to 30 feet above the home. The size and how still it was wowed me.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban neighborhood with middle income homes. It did go towards the Saginaw Bay. Now that I think of it, there was a power plant near that area but it didn't seem to be going in that area. It left in a hurry and disappeared quickly.

Full Description & Details

I was 10 years old. My youngest sister was already in bed. It was a warm evening because we had windows opened. My mother, my older sister and I were watching television. I heard an unusual swishing sound and could not hear the T.V. I looked around the room and saw that both my mother and sister were still looking at the television. When their puzzled faces showed me that they were confused by the sound, I walked over to the front door of the livingroom. This door was opened and the storm door was closed with the screen opened. I looked towards the northwest across the street and saw a yellow saucer aircraft hovering over my neighbor's home. I yelled to my mother to look. Both my sister and mother came to where I stood. The saucer at this point, exited o the north towards the Saginaw Bay. It quickly, but very silently, flew away. My little sister had entered the room after it flew away. My mother, not wanting to scare her, told her to get back to bed. She asked what was going on and my mother's quick reply was "nothing". We were told not to say anything to my young sister about what we saw. My mother from that day, on refused that she saw anything. She finally admitted that she saw the saucer when we were watching the night sky about five years. I don't think that my older sister came to the door before it flew away. As I remember, we never called anyone to report it. I checked the newspaper for days thinking that someone else surely had heard or seen something that warm evening. When I asked my friends that live next door and behind us, neither of them heard nor saw anything unusual that evening. They also, like us, had their windows opened. I knew that it was around 8 or 9 pm because as I recall we were watching the Partidge Family. All of the children in the neighborhood were always back indoors and showered before the Brady Bunch started. My oldest sister, to this day, has no recollection of that night. My youngest sister remembers that night and how she wanted to know what was going on.

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

No. My 5th grade teacher said it probably was a weather balloon. I was a child that like to star gaze at night. I continued to watch the sky since this event hoping to see what I saw. I wanted to prove to skeptical people that it was real. I have since seen weather balloons. Their size is minuscule compared to the size of the saucer I saw. I still do not understand the sound we heard that our neighbors did not hear. The sound interfered with our ability to hear the tv. The show continued th play without any interference.

Witness Background

At the time of the sighting... I was 10 years old attending a Catholic elementary school. I am now a Special Education teacher with 22 years of experience. I will soon turn 50 and still recall that night. I will draw a pic later if you send me a reminder... Not sure how to do on the iPad.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was skeptical before and now believe we should be learning from the technology. This has to be a more advanced civilization. I had seen very few shows about UFO sightings prior. I never seen anything on television that looked like what we saw.
