Date:

9/2/2014

Location:

Clarksville, Tennessee, United States

Summary:

It was after sunset, somewhere around 7:00 or 7:30- my parents were making dinner and my siblings were all playing video games. I went outside to stargaze until the food was ready, and I noticed a constellation that was not supposed to be there. It turned out to be a disc shaped or spherical UFO with a ring of lights around it, maybe 350 or 400 feet up.

Date Reported:

9/5/2014 8:53:15 AM

Sighting Time: 

7:30

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

1

Duration: 

30-60 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was either a disc or a sphere, or maybe a semi-spherical disc. There was a ring of little lights, probably six inches around or less and not really bright, since they looked like stars from 350 feet away. It was a dark color, maybe black or dark gray or really dark blue or purple and it wasn't very reflective, otherwise I would have seen the house lights reflected on the bottom.

Size of Object(s)

From where I was, I could hold my hands ten inches or a foot apart and make it look like I was holding it. In reality I think it was somewhere from fifteen to twenty feet across, and I don't know how tall it was since I only saw the bottom of it. I imagine it being about eight to twelve feet tall, but that's just my imagination and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It's a pretty rural area where I live. My house is in the middle of three acres of land, most of which we use to keep our six horses and chickens on.

Full Description & Details

Like I said, I went outside to stargaze. My computer was dead, so I couldn't play video games with my brother and sisters, and I figured I might as well look for some constellations to show to my boyfriend on our next date. I was out in the backyard, lying down on our trampoline, when I noticed a circle of stars almost directly above me that hadn't been there before. Even weirder, there were no other stars visible in the space they outlined. The stars closest to my house suddenly flashed brighter, and the circle moved away. I realized that it was not, in fact, a weird constellation, but a disc (or maybe a sphere) with lights around all the edges. It was dark except for the lights, which I think were some kind of propulsion system or maybe something like blinkers. I just sort of froze (I think I was stunned) and watched it fly off. I think it went west. A few seconds (literally, like two seconds after it left) later, my mom came out on the back porch and called me back in for dinner. I told her I had seen a UFO, but she thought I was messing around, so I decided not to try convincing my whole family of it. My boyfriend believes me, though. He started researching UFO encounters, found this website, and said I should probably report my sighting.

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

No, I don't think so.

Witness Background

I'm in my senior year at highschool. I'm aiming to be a clothes designer or hair stylist, but if I can I want to be a pop singer. Maybe. Or maybe just a singing YouTuber in my free time. I don't have a car or a job, but my boyfriend does part time on a radio station and drives me around if I need him to. My dad's a retired Army pilot and my mom is a Realtor.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Well, I really like sci-fi, so I thought it would be cool if UFOs were real, but I didn't actually believe in them. I wasn't well-read on actual real UFO stuff, but I have read some H. G. Wells stuff that my ex gave me for Christmas a few years ago.

Summary:

I was wakened- yet no sound out my opened window. I peeked out my window to see a round saucer hovering over the other side of Wappingers Creek, with a dome protruding above the saucer. Lights between the dome and the saucer rotated/flashed red/yellow/green/blue and then it took off like a shooting star.

Full Description & Details

I was seventeen. I don't know why or what woke me up that calm summer night. My window was open. My bed was against that window. I looked out, and saw the saucer hovering over the land on the opposite side of the creek. It was silent. I was in awe. I only allowed my eyes to be above the window sill. I was afraid I may be discovered. I watched the hovering craft- a saucer, with the lights rotating clockwise - red-yellow-green-blue, between the saucer and the dome-shaped top in the center (the lit lights illuminated the dome a bit). No sound. No beams of light or anything going on. It hovered over the land on the other side of the creek for approximately 5-10 minutes, then to my surprise, took off (WITHOUT a sound) like a shooting star NE bound. I can still draw the object.

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

NO

IT WAS MYSELF, I WAS BETWEEN 17 AND 19 AT THE TIME , HANGING OUT WITH 2 FRIENDS OF MINE WHICH WERE MY NEIGHBORS. OUT OF NOWHERE ONE OF MY FRIENDS SAY "WHATS THAT LIGHT UP THERE" .THE 3 OF US WERE OUTSIDE LOOKING AT IT, AS THE LIGHT SEEMED TO DECEND SLOWLY MOVING TOWARDS US, HOVERING OR SOMETHING,. MY 2 FRIENDS ARE BROTHERS, WERE RIGHT OUTSIDE OF THEYRE HOUSE AT THIS POINT, THEN THEYRE LIL SISTER, WHICH WAS MAYBE 11-13 YRS OLD, CAME OUTSIDE AND BEGAN LOOKING AT THIS LIGHT WITH US.THE LIGHT WAS JUST THERE, HOVERING,NO SOUND. THEN THE "LIGHT" WAS POINTING A WHITE LIGHT TOWARDS ALL 4 OF US. IT MADE NO.SOUND, WE KNEW IT WASNT A HELICOPTER. WE GOT FREAKED OUT AND WENT INSIDE THEYRE HOUSE. THE "LIGHT" STILL HAD ITS LIGHT TOWARDS US, LIKE IF IT WAS LOOKING FOR US IN THE HOUSE. WE WERE ALL SCARED AT THIS POINT AND DIDNT KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON. THE NEXT THING I REMEMBER I WAS GOING OUTSIDE, IT WAS JUST ME, I WENT TO MY HOUSE WHICH WAS NEXT DOOR TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE WAS SEEING THIS OUTSIDE. WELL...... WHILE I WAS OUTSIDE... I NOTICED A SOUND... A HOVERING SOUND....AND IT SOUNDED CLOSE..... I SIMPLY LOOK UP...I SEE..WHAT LOOKS LIKE HELICOPTERS, ALL BLACK, HOVERING OVER MY HEAD, LIKE 2 OR 3 OF THEM, AT LIKE THE HEIGHT OF A TREE, THEY SEEMED REALLY CLOSE. I EVEN HAD TO SQUINT MY EYES TO SEE THEM BECAUSE THEY ALMOST CAMOFLAUGED WITH THE NIGHT SKY. I STILL REMEMBER THE HOVERING SOUND, THESE WERE UNLIKE ANY HELICOPTERS I HAVE EVER SEEN. SO THEN THEY TAKE OFF AND MOVE TOWARDS THE LIGHT, I THEN RUN BACK TO WHERE MY FRIENDS WERE OUTSIDE THEYRE HOUSE AND MEET UP WHITH THEM. THEY WERE STILL LOOKING AT THE LIGHT. I KNEW THOSE HELICOPTERS WERE HEADED TOWARD THE LIGHT, SO I JUST WATCHED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. AND THIS IS WHAT WE ALL SAW.... IT LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS A HELICOPTER ON EACH SIDE OF THE LIGHT, LIKE THEY SANDWICHED IT......THEN IT LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF STARWARS......I SAW RED LIGHTS GOING BACK AND FOURTH BETWEEN THE HELICOPTERS AND THE LIGHT, LIKE THEY WERE SHOOTING OR SOMETHING......AND THEN I SEE THE LIGHT BURST INTO FLAMES. IT WAS GOING SRTAGHT DOWN, IT LOOKED LIKE AN ASTEROID ON FIRE FALLING FROM THE SKY.AT THIS POINT I DIDNT BELIEVE MY EYES, I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW. I WAS REALLY SCARED, I THOUGHT WHEN THAT THING CRASHED DOWN, IT WAS GOING TO MAKE A HUGE EXPLOSION OR SOMETHING I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO THINK. THE BURNING MASS JUST WENT ALL THE WAY DOWN... NOTHING HAPPENED. ... I LOST TRACK OF THE HELICOPTERS, AND JUST LIKE THAT IT WAS ALL OVER. WE ALL JUST LOOKED AT EACHOTHER WITH THESE FACES OF (WHAT THE HELL) AND TALKED ABOUT WHAT WE ALL HAD JUST EXPERIENCED..., I WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT I SAW THIS NIGHT.

09/02/2014 UFO sighting? or strange aircraft

Saw a bright light at high altitude moving north west, about heading 350-355 degrees.

The object was very high, and at first I thought it was a satellite. When the object appeared at 80 degrees to my viewing angle, I'm 5'11 1/2", facing about 5-7 degrees compass heading. As soon as I saw the bright light, it went out; that confusing me for a satellite. I noticed what appeared to be possibly a very faint small green light and very small faint red light very close together, perpendicular to a line heading in the direction of 350-355 degrees. Very faint, very close together. The strange thing was, NO sound, No contrail, and the light I saw appeared twice as large as the object, as referenced to the closeness of the red and green lights. It moved SE to NW across the sky in about 7 seconds before I could no longer see any light of the object. Sky clear, unlimited visibility. Just saying. Thank you

Location:

Roseville, Minnesota, United States

Summary:

In the middle of the afternoon, I looked through the glass door of my apartment and saw a flying saucer. I opened the door to make sure it wasn't a smudge, and then watched it for 5-10 minutes before it flew from sight.

Day/Night: 

Daytime

No. of Witnesses:

Duration: 

5-10 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a flying saucer--or rather, it looked like two saucers on each other, one face down on the other. The bulge on the bottom was smaller than the bulge at the top, and I could make out faint structure lines that held it together. I also saw windows, but no pilot because it was too far away and the sun was gleaming on them. I did not see any lights or illuminations, and the outline of the object was bold.

Size of Object(s)

Relative--probably an inch to an inch and a half. Actual--hard to tell because it was in the air. Judging by the windows I saw, I think it was between the size of a van and a small airplane, big enough for passengers but not huge.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Suburban area near a college campus. Roseville is right between Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota, but otherwise I don't know about any nearby military bases, etc. beyond the international airport.

Full Description & Details

It was about 2:20 in the afternoon. I was taking a break from college homework and pacing around in my apartment, rehearsing lines for a play I was in. I paused by the glass door (the weather was beautiful) and saw something dark wobbling in the air above a nearby parking lot. I opened the door to watch it more accurately, and the wobbling gradually receded to a hovering. I could make out clear details of the saucer-shaped craft--so clear that I figured it must be some sort of remote control toy, but I decided to keep watching just in case. I wanted to take a picture, but my camera was in another room, and by the time I found it I sensed the UFO might have disappeared, so I decided to stand still and focus on it instead. I watched it hovering for about 5-10 minutes, wishing one of my roommates would come in to share the experience (none did). Then the saucer started shrinking--flying away--at a speed I can only compare to a missile I once saw landing when I was a kid. I watched until it had completely disappeared in the distance, and then wrote a note to myself on a sticky pad so that I wouldn't be able to convince myself it was a weird dream the next day.

Note: before this incident I was a firm disbeliever in UFOs. My dad was a pilot and amateur astronomer, and I knew dozens of explanations and alternatives even when people I knew swore they couldn't explain what they saw. None of my explanations matched this as either imagination or a natural phenomenon, and if it is a government craft then, well, I somehow missed that our air force is building flying saucers that are perfectly silent and fast as rockets.

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

I have gone through every excuse I can think of. I could see that it was a built craft, definitely not "strange lights in the air." It was the middle of the day and I was wide awake, and the craft was close enough that I got a really good look at it.

Witness Background

I'm now a housewife and writer of fiction/webmaster. I graduated with a B.A. in English: Literature and Writing in 2012.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was a total skeptic before my sighting. My dad was a pilot and amateur astronomer and I grew up knowing what was in the sky and what wasn't. I laughed when a friend told me that she'd seen one. I even saw another myself once (a ring of colored lights... but it was late at night in the car and I was half asleep. Ever since the sighting I have been conducting all of the UFO research I can stand, from government records to media sensationalism, looking for answers. I've read books and even wrote a novel covering some theories on the subject. I want to know what I saw and what it means.

Other Comments

I would welcome further communication on the subject even though I know all-out answers probably won't happen. I just want to know that someone believes me and that I'm not alone.. and if there's any explanation I have not considered.

Size of Object(s)

I can't guess the size of that craft, but I can say nothing in THIS world travels at that speed and importantly, trajectory. Meteors go ACROSS the sky with a subtle arc and, of course, sometimes fall DOWN to earth giving all who witness them quite a show. What I saw was traveling straight UP in a PERFECTLY STARIGHT LINE leaving a trail of perfectly EQUAL sized pulses behind. There were NO clouds that night to obscure my line of sight. That thing was out of our atmosphere in mere seconds. Now, as far as the rooftop observation; again, my mind went to "monkey", rather, chimpanzee. It exhibited a very smooth, fluid, flowing movement when it turned to leave my company.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Ours is a subdivision of 65 homes. Each property commands anywhere from a third to a full acres of lawn. Outside our development are several more neighborhoods with a smattering of land that is still farmed for cattle fees. There are no forests nearby as the area was largely gently rolling farmland or horse pasture in years past. The infamous Three Mile Island with it's adjacent Harrisburg International Airport about 20 miles to the East of my home and there are two military installations, weapons and supply repositories, to the East and West of us about 10 miles respectively.

Full Description & Details

This wasn't a "recent" sighting; however, about a year or so ago I was letting my dog out one last time before retiring for the night. It was about 12:30 P.M. and the skies were quite clear with an abundance of visible stars While the dog was trotting about the lawn and I was "star-gazing", a pulsing, distinctively orange light shot almost STRIAGHT UP into the stratosphere. Again, this left a trail, a SERIES of light pulses straight as a bullet flies. It did NOT arc ACROSS the night sky as so many meteors will. This was a series of POKER STRAIGHT "pulses" leaving the earth's atmosphere in total silence but at an alarming speed.

So that was, shall we say, "unique". But a few weeks later and performing the same nightly ritual with the dog, I found myself standing in our driveway watching the dog go about his business. Our garage is a side entrance and the drive slopes down as it goes from it. I was midway down the drive, about 30 feet from the garage looking AWAY from our home when for some reason I was compelled to turn around and look UP at the peak of the garage roof. I've never once in the 23 years at this residence and having gone through a series of subsequent dogs all in need of a pre-bedtime bathroom break, felt COMPELLED to turnaround and look directly at the garage peak, the very end which is above the actual garage door.

But on this particular night I saw the dark outline of a simian form; sitting on its haunches, staring down at me. Let me dispel any thoughts of raccoons (we have never seen one since we moved here over two decades ago), a cat, (FAR too large for a feline) or any other denizen of the forest and clearly, not a dog as there's no way ANY dog, no matter how athletic, could physically get on that roof.

Rather, this reminded me much of a monkey, four limbs and approximately two feet and change tall. Naturally I was shocked to see such a sight against the brightly moonlit roof of my garage and stared, amazed, for a few seconds. I was, as I said, about 30 feet in front of the garage door, but as I took my first steps toward the visage, slowly turned around to walk away. That was the most shocking part of this episode. It was then that I could make out it's hips, back side, waist, broad shoulders and it's long, striding outstretched arm as it turned completely about and disappeared back the roofline.

I immediately ran into the garage and scrambled to where I keep two very large "Maglite" brand flashlights. I ALWAYS keep fresh Duracell batteries in those lights because I use them quite often while walking my dog and in finding his toys when we play fetch at night. IN any case, the flashlights were beamed all over the roof, my neighbors roofs, the yards; EVERYWHERE for quite a few minutes.



I find it a little too coincidental that I witnessed the aforementioned night sky anomaly, and but two weeks later see some creature peering down at me from a nearly impossible vantage point.

These two incidents were a year or so ago and nothing extraordinary has transpired since, for which I'm grateful. The pulsing..."take-off" was weird enough; but the monkey on the rooftop was truly unsettling.

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

Not a chance.

Witness Background

I've got a bachelors degree from Penn State in Liberal Arts. I've been a professional sales representative and colossal pain in the ass to my wife for 25 years. My hobbies include art in several mediums; and music, for which I own seven or eight guitars, a smattering of amplifiers in various sizes and volume, keyboards, violin, cello, mandolin and an embarrassingly large set of drums.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I'm a devotee of "The History Channel" and it's recent proliferation of "Alien" and "UFO" programming. Let's just say that after these events, I watch those programs a little more intently. I have no doubt...not even of the slightest kind, that my observations were not of this world. What's more, there's been such a growing number of sightings and encounters of late; who can deny the existence of other life outside our tiny domain? It's not only ridiculous, but rather pompous to think "we're IT"! Mathmatically speaking...out OWN galaxy is home to millions of stars..."Suns" if you will...MILLIONS of them! Then there are purportedly, MILLIONS of galaxies with there host of millions of stars. Can any contemporary, THINKING human still believe that we...the residents of Earth...are the only sentient beings? That archaic thinking is ludicrous and sadly, laughable.

Other Comments

I continually ponder..."Why me?" I'm just a regular guy..."Mr. Suburbia". There's nothing remarkable about my life, intellect or talents. So why did one of them decide to "perch" themselves atop my middle-class home in "Jerk-Water", Pennsylvania? What's more; if you've come such a tremendous distance for a "visit", arriving... arguably, a rather boring guy's house; why not stay for a cup of coffee and piece of cake? Why the hurry to scamper away? Let's chat...

Full Description & Details

It was around 2:30 am...I just had my food and went outside to smoke a cigarette...it was summer time...I do not remember the month...I got so excited that I even forgot to note down the incident for a few months...all I was doing was telling people whenever I got a chance...but unfortunately nobody took it seriously ,nobody believed me...But I know what I saw...and I m writing it here hoping you will believe...I lit up the cigarette and looked up at the sky with the hope of witnessing a shooting star...than I started taking few puffs of smoke and still trying to find a shooting star...these meteors makes me feel excited...But what I witnessed on that day was far far far strange than any shooting star or anything I have dreamed of..there was no shooting stars but a big round ball of white light..it was moving sideways..I felt like I was dreaming at first...I couldn't believe what I was seeing...the feeling was so strange...it was so silent...nothing ..only the dark sky and glowing ball of light moving at a constant speed...it seemed like weightless..as if it was moved not by any other force but the wind..it felt so weightless and was so so silent..I was standing outside the back door of my house which is located in the southern side...the object was coming from the south and was moving directly towards the north..because of the roof I couldn't see it anymore so I had to ran towards the front doors which is in the north side...But unfortunately when I got out of the house through the front door to look at it..It was not there anymore...it was not in the sky anymore...the most exciting thing that has ever happened in my life just got disappeared...

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

no it was not the moon or any planets or clouds...and not any airplanes,blimps or weather balloons..and as far as I know..it did not resembles a satellite..there is nothing within my limited knowledge that explains the object...it was round and was shinning bright...and it was not moving upwards..but sideways...very swiftly..as it was moving with the air

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have seen it in television and movies...I have read few articles about UFO...but I never believed them to be real until I saw one...
