Full Description & Details

We had just exited our workplace and stood outside in the parking lot conversating. When i looked up over the east side of Wright patterson air force base about 10 miles north of our location.Just then i happened to look above ten feet horizontaly above the desi building in kettering parrelle to the roof. I pointed out a circular orange and gold colored round ball shaped ship resembling a sparkling flame.It glowed like a gold colored pearl in the sky about the length of the top of your thumb if you extended your arm in front of your face towards the northern sky. The ball shaped shift slowly moved across the sky and then bounced, wiggleed, and shot acorss the sky and then came to a blinding stop mid-air. This is when my other three co-workers and i realized that it was a ufo because no modern day ship can seemingly bounce up and down and shoot about 15 miles in the sky and stop instantly. About 15 minutes after we stared at this hovering object we heard 5 f-150 screaming towards the object but it shot out of site in one fast movement that left the wright patterson airforce jets trailing about 20 miles from its original position and then the object hurled straight up and vanish. Of course to no suprise no mention of this event the next day in the papers or the new, but on my way home i saw 3 kettering police squad cars parked in front of the kettering hospital staring up towards the same position in the sky that we had been looking at 15 minutes earlier.

Full Description & Details

Around June of 1976...at around 11pm at night...

(I could go back and find cash reciepts to establish the date)

We: (Gary B. Joe H. & Mike T. (all of Newton Falls, Ohio)...

were driving home from Sharon PA on I-76 heading west. I spotted an Emerald Green light source, fixed in the sky. It appeared to be about 200-300 feet high.

After watching it for about 2 minutes... we got more curious about it.

We stopped the van, got out and we stood looking up at it... for about another minute and a half... and without any excelleration, it moved toward traffic until we couldn't see it. It was a drizzling rain... very lightly. It was Emerald Green... as if it was a very pure light source... similar to a GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHT but without a haze, without a glass lense texture... a pure SPOT... NO texture... NO haze, or atomospheric-like aura around it. After being fixed for the duration of our spotting and then watching it... it moved instantly... without excelleration... as if from 0 mph to 45 mph. We watched it move in a perfectly straight path as it headed east... we watched as we turned facing oncoming traffic... until it faded away. It looked to be about 10' in diameter... but because it was such a perfect sphere of light... its hard to how big... but I remember it to be like a green traffic light in size.

It was around 1980... summer. I was married to my 2nd wife... Nancy J.

She had (2) boys... ages 10 & 11. We were renting a house in Bruswick, Ohio.

I was working a Pi Keyboards & Audio...in Strongsville, Ohio. Nancy had come to pick me up after work at about 9:30PM. On the way home to Brunswick (about 10 miles), we spotted the Emerald Greens. There were FIVE of them... in a "W" formation.

They were fixed in the sky. I asked Brian and Kevin "do you see those lights?" and they answered "yes." Nancy and I stopped the car... we all got out. The five Emerald's were fixed in the sky, looking to be about a mile away. Then, all of a sudden, just like my previous sighting... they move from the sky, DOWN to the horizon... with no excelleration speed... just as if from 0 to an instant 45 mph.

Again pure light sources. All in a perfect straight line path downward... as if

they were connected together!!!

When they moved, they were ALL IN PERFECT SYNCHRONIZATION TOGETHER!!!

We thought they had landed NW of our position and went searching for them.

The sky was clear this night. We never found them of course. But it was a very dramatic sighting for all of us.



In 1985, I was remarried to Pam C. and were at her summer school at Kenyon College in mid Ohio, on campus. We were walking back to the dorms at around 8:30pm... it hadn't yet got pitch black dark yet. It was cloudy, but not raining.

Pam and I were walking with another student named Ken.... when I looked up and spotted an Emerald... just as the one above. I said look... and we all saw ONE fixed in the sky. We stood looking at it. It was above the fire station in Keyon... the firemen were washing ands polishing a truck parked outside, and just under the Emerald. It appeared to be just under the cloud cover... maybe 250 feet. It was exactly like the other I described. When it moved, it was without excelleration EXCEPT this time... it moved in a wavy path... like a sine wave... and went up into the clouds. The travel distance wasn't very long this time. I say... if you held your fingers up tot he sky... it travelled about 1 foot and a half in distance.

Other Comments

I have rarely heard of sighting like these. It's very odd that I saw THREE sightings of the same type and kind!!! I know they WERE NOT balloons or other things... these were CLEAR sightings and lasted long enough to evaluate and get a sense of their nature. After the 2nd sighting, I felt as if I was being watched. A natural responce I suppose.

I'd like to know if anyone has seen similar things as I.

Full Description & Details

My wife and I had just left my parents home, and were traveling east on hiway 70 in Garner NC.

I noticed a bright light in the sky ahead and to the right of us. It really didn't look like landind lights, or any type of search light. This light was more golden in color than anything I had ever seen. We took the hiway 50 south exit in an attempt to follow this light. We followed for 1.5- 2 miles, catching glimpses of it through the trees. This thing

came over the trees and stopped directly above the road. It just hovered there at about

40-50 feet high, completely silent. We stopped directly underneath it and and just watched. It was about 40 feet in diameter I believe it was circular in shape, although it was tilted at quite an angle and appeared somewhat eliptical. It was black in color.

The bottom was not flat, it had a row of elongated "portholes" that protruded beneath the craft. We could see a deep blue light through these ports. Additionally, we could see shadows that suggested movement through them. It was not perfectly still, it kind of bobbed, like a float on water. I flashed my headlights in an an attempt to get some response, but there was none. We sat under it a couple of minutes. I decided to drive up the road and view the profile of this thing. We drove about 1/4 mile to a side road and looked back. It was gone. I believe I caught a glimpse of something moving off to the north west, but it disappeared so quickly I couldn't be sure.

Full Description & Details

driving home in lower Hudson Valley (Bedford NY) Rte 22, south, and saw a very straight row of red lights above the gas station at intersection with rte 172. Funny I never noticed high tension wires there, i thought, but then the lights started to move. I turned the corner onto rte 172 and said, 'what the hell is that?' and my daughter (age 10) and I started watching as I drove. "It" was floating (no sound) just above the treetops, the shape was implied (blocked out sky but i couldnt see anything but the lights) and i said, this thing is huge! It followed along for about two miles at our speed about 40 mph, passed over the car, and eventually went down below the tree line out of sight when I got to Rt 684 and could pull off the road to watch it. The lights at that point were some red and some amber. When we got home my daughter and I both drew (separately) a picture of it but I don' t have thepics anymore. It was very large, soundless, floating or gliding, very low to the ground. Black in color except no form could be identified, but from the lights it was a triangle then a boomerang shape. It wasn't scary but I would love to know what it was. It made no sound at all--I rolled down the window. That's about all . Thanks

Thanks for your work. I am wondering what this "UFO" is, as it appeared in the Hudson Valley during the nineteen eighties too. I don't get it.

Full Description & Details

I was out at the time with my mother walking the dog on new years eve. It had snowed a bit and we sent out to let me play in the snow. As we walked down Eglington Avenue we stopped to look up at the sky to se if there were more snowclouds. The evening was quite well llit, with some patchy snow clouds. AS we looked we saw a very bright object get progressively bigger/brighter over a period of about 10 seconds - and whatever it was eventually turned to reveal a huge flame tail and a leading cyliinder object. Given it was so bright you couldn't make out any details in the leading cylinder despite staring at it to see more. It was totally silent to whole time. My mum and I observed it move quite slowly for about 5 minutes as it headed straight over the Cleveland hills.

Since that time, I have observed weather baloons, meteors, comets, aircraft with afterburners (very loud and obvious), and many other flying objects and have never seen anything comparable to what I oberved back then. I have not seen anything else similar since then.

There were several other people who stopped to watch at the time. My father's friend, who lived at the time over the Cleveland hills in the general direction of where the object headed also observed it it seems minutes after we saw it.

We reported it to the Guisoborourgh Evening Gazette and a story was published with the usual "probably a meteor" story.

Full Description & Details

From the geometry involved, the approximate speed of the wingless object can be estimated. The day was clear and sunny, SIghted from a 5-mile height, it was visible aheead by a few miles. It disappeared at least a few miles behind my plane. Since it traversed 15 to 20 miles in 15 to 30 seconds, the speed was between 6000 miles per hour and 16000 miles per hour. the shape was roughly oval, with the rear end tapered.

Full Description & Details

My wife and I were returning home to Kelso,Wa from our honeymoon in Florida and had just left Ft Lauderdale for Dallas Ft Worth,TX.We were flying on American Airlines on a Boeing 767.There was a large thunderstorm in progress over Florida and we had been informed that we may be flying higher than normal in order to evade this storm.The storm was almost as large as the width of the state of Florida.I could see fires in the Everglades that had started because of the lightning.We had just come to the west coastline of Florida at 8:30 pm EST,and I was looking out the window facing south.That is when I noticed a silver flash below us and to the south.I thought it might be another plane with a silver hull.This object was heading north which would intersect our flight but it seemed to be below us quite some distance so I didnt have any concern at all.As I watched this object get closer it seemed to be moving fairly fast and as it got closer I noticed its shape came into view.This object was not any plane Ive ever seen before it came into focus as being a silver disk.At this point I became a little nervous because it definatly was not a plane.Almost immediatly after thinking this, the object just shot off at an incredible speed underneath our plane and dissappeared from my site.Right after this the plane we were flying in went into a steep climb and the engines kicked in hard.We climbed to about 40,000 ft and then leveled off.I told my wife but nobody else and I didnt want to alert any other passengers because of the fear of terrorism and how they might react if they knew something had passed so close to us. I thought it was rather coincidental that our plane went into such a steep climb right after this happened.Maybe coincidence, maybe deliberate evasion tactics, I still wonder.I would be curious to know how many others saw this object and if they reprted it.

Full Description & Details



Reading the recent reports of a triangle shaped object prompted me to write this. In the summer of 1974 around July 4th, I went with a college friend to visit his parents in Lexington , Mississippi. One of his cousins and her friend from the L.A. area of California had also come in for the visit. They were returning to California on a late night flight out of the Jackson airport, so my friend and I drove them to the Jackson airport. After we dropped them off at the terminal, we headed back to Lexington. There was a road that ran adjacent to the Jackson airport that lead to the highway back to Lexington, and we were driving on this road. Far ahead, just above treetop level, there were three very bright lights that were positioned like landing lights on a commercial jet. The two outer lights were like the ones on a jet's wings, and the center at a slighty higher position, like the nose landing light.

We friend and I both observed the lights because of their brightness. I said they must be landing lights. We continued driving down this road and became even more curious because the lights hadn't moved at all. That ruled out their being on a jet so my friend said they must be on the sides and top of a large water tower. We came to a stop sign and needed to turn left. The lights were directly in front of us, maybe 50-100 feet above the treetops, in this heavily wooded area. There were no street lights or buildings around and it was very quiet. We had the windows rolled down in the car and the radio was not turned on.

We sat there looking at the lights wondering what they could be. They were so bright that you couldn't see what was behind them or what they were connected to, much like when you approach a parked car in a dark area and it has its headlights on. You can't see the car at all, only the bright headlights.

My friend was driving and went ahead to make the left turn. The road we were turning onto was a four lane, divided road with a dirt and grass median between the lanes. He pulled across the two lanes that were headed in the opposite direction, across the median area, and then turned left onto the shoulder of the lanes we needed to use. He then stopped the car with the foot brake and sat there with the engine idling. Now the lights were on my right, as passenger in the car. I stared out the window at them and started to become a little frightened because this was unlike anything I'd ever seen. After a short time, my friend took his foot off the brake and started idling slowly down the shoulder.

After we had rolled only 5-10 feet, the lights suddenly rotated towards us to stay pointed directly at the side of the car, but slightly behind the car. After the rotation, they started moving beside the car, at the same speed we were going, and maintaining the position slighly behind. As soon as the rotation occurred and the lights were moving along with the car, I went into a heart pounding panic. I was so afraid of what might happen next, because the object behind the lights was big -- maybe 80-100 feet from the left most light to the right most. And the silence, precision and complete lack of vibration in its movement was unlike anything I had ever seen. I urged my friend to step on the gas and get the hell away, but he hesitated as he craned his neck to look out of the passenger side window. After what seemed like an eternity, he pulled onto the main part of the road and accelerated. As soon as he accelerated, the lights stopped moving, but they slowly rotated to always point directly at the car. I had my head out the passenger window so I could watch it carefully because I was so terrified it would follow us. After we had gone about 500 feet down the road, the lights started moving across the road, always staying rotated to aim at us. The movement was slow, precise and vibration free. When they reached the stand of trees on the opposite side of the road from where we had begun our acceleration, they went down smoothly and disappeared into the trees. At this point, of course, I got a little courage back and urged my friend to turn around and go back to see if we could see anything. He agreed, but we had to drive further until we got to a crossover the median. We then turned and headed back. I watched the area like a hawk during the entire time, but never saw anything else.

When we got back to the median crossover that we had used originally after the stop sign, we stopped on the shoulder before turing around. I peered into the trees but saw nothing. So we turned around at the crossover and headed back toward Lexington. I watched out the back of the car until we got back to Lexington but saw nothing else.

Neither my friend nor myself had anything to drink and didn't use any drugs. We were completely clear headed and lucid when all this occurred.

Lovely emerald green. Very striking colour.

Full Description & Details

My friend and I were sat in his garden after a barbecue. We were pretty tired but chatting away, smoking cigars. For some reason we both looked up simultaneously and saw a bright emerald green light (approx. 20 times the size of an ordinary star) that appeared to be quite low in the sky swiftly cut across the sky more or less above our heads. It seemed that as we layed eyes on it it suddenly changed direction: literally (though it is a cliche) at 90 degrees and sped off away from us. It was completely silent and the colour and definition of the light was very, very sharp: there didn't seem to be any atmospheric disturbance (i.e. pollution or pollen or whatever) that blurred it's appearance, leading us to believe (along with it's sheer size) to be quite low. Certainly, I'd say, maybe a third to a half of the normal height of regular cloud cover. We both immediately looked at each other and quite casually confirmed to ourselves that we had just witnessed the passing of aero-technology not commonly known to man. It was very eerie but it did not particularly suprise either of us that we had seen it. I think we're both pretty convinced there's an awful lot out there (human or otherwise) we know nothing about. Witney, Oxfordshire, is also very close to Brize Norton air base, so who knows...

People need to stop looking to the government to confirm these sightings or own up to 'undisclosed knowledge'. The government has many responsibilities, admittedly some of them not so noble as others. People need make up their own minds: look at the evidence and draw their own conclusions. And even if they were aliens: so what ? We really need to start making the most of the time we have on this planet, now, without them: the majority of humankind needs to mature, if not outright destroy itself. If you were an alien whizzing around this planet, would YOU want to land and start poking your weird-looking head around corners ? I, personally, would not.

Full Description & Details

It was in the spring or summer of 1997. I was looking out at the mountains from my front porch and talking on the phone. I spotted a large white metallic V-shaped or seagull shaped object gliding very slowly in front of the mountains. It was in view for approximately 30 seconds. I watched it as it moved downward and disappeared between the mountains and the valley below. At first I thought it was a glider but realized it was too large for a glider. I'm guessing that it was about 200 feet or more in length.
