UFO Sighting Report


August, 16, 2013


Traverse City, Michigan, United States


Discoball orb of light finally caught on camera.

Date Reported:

8/27/2013 7:11:21 AM

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



for about 6 hours

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

To the naked eye, it looks like a disco-ball star, spinning different colors of light. Watching it, it moves very slowly in different directions. Through binoculars or telescopes, it looks almost the same, but almost in 3D. Meaning it's in our atmosphere. And capturing it in a still shot off my cameras tripod... it looks different all together, spinning like an electron with a nucleus.... very interesting...

Size of Object(s)

I really couldn't tell how big it is... I'd guess pretty big in the sky.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

It was hovering above my tree line... although it was very far away.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Caught in my cozy neighborhood, from my driveway. No military bases or power plants... although it looked like it was over around some water. The bay and some surrounding lakes are near by.

Full Description & Details

My boyfriend and I have been watching this thing from his house in Traverse City, Michigan, and actually caught this photo at my house a few miles away from my driveway on August 16th around 11:00pm.

We've been calling the 'Disco-ball' for quite a long while, for about a year or so.

We had been looking at it through binoculars and cameras and telescopes.... To the naked it, it looks like an actual disco-ball; spinning all types of colors and looks like the normal size of a star/planet in the sky... but when looking at it through the binoculars and telescopes, it almost looks 3D. Meaning it's in our atmosphere.

Then capturing it from my camera on its tripod, making these photos absolutely still... that thing is anything but still. It doesnt look like that from staring at it from the ground, it moves slowly... but we had no idea that's what we'd catch. We've been taking lots of photos of it now and keep getting the same results.

Everything else is still, that thing is not.

If you go looking outside at the night sky, most chances you'll see it too :)

We're not alone.

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

No, I really do not think it was anything else. Not a firefly, plane, satellite, planet/star... It's there all the time at night... it has its own movement and colors.

Witness Background

I am a 24yr woman attending my community college for social working with children. I work at a the college as well, in the library.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I've always been a believer... it would be ridiculous if I didn't believe we're not the only ones. I've been researching for a very long time on ufos, and have been keeping my eye on this disco-ball orb for longer.
