Recent UFO Eyewitness Testimony
October 23, 2011
MI – Fireball, Triangle.
“Noticed it was brighter than normal at 9:20 p.m.,” the witness stated. “Started looking for source. As I looked up, it got brighter and brighter. Noticed a white fireball directly above me shining what I guess to be a spot light/search light. At that very second, it appeared to shoot strait up I then could make out the outline of a triangle moving to the northwest at a very slow speed. Watched it go just past the tree line before I lost site of it .” Case 32813.
October 22, 2011
IL – Triangle, several; near Romeoville.
“While driving south down I-55 I noticed three star like craft in a triangle formation.” Case 32791.
KY – Flashing light, all types of colors.
“It seemed to jump up and down, as well as side to side, and a circular motion. It reminded me of how a fly(insect) would buzz around, but in slow motion.”
MO – Orange lights; multiple; between 10:45 and 11:40 p.m.
“Noticed slow, fire orange object/light moving west to east,” the witness stated. “It went out, disappeared , no sound at all, then another and another. Six separate, identical objects – same path and several minutes apart – all no sounds. All separate objects went out at same place in sky and disappeared from sight. These light objects were low, maybe 500 feet above tree level. very intense orange color.” Case 32802.
OH – Bright Light, orange-red glow.
“Because of the orange-red glow it was emitting, I was concerned it was an airplane that had caught on fire,” the witness stated. “I ran outside to watch it to see if it was losing elevation and was going to plummet to the ground. Its movement was slower than a plane and there was no noise. When I first saw it, it was heading from east to west. It suddenly took a 90 degree turn and started heading due north. It abruptly stopped and hovered for a couple of minutes.” Case 32792.
OR – Bright Lights; multiple blinking into various shapes10:30 p.m., Riddle.
“I saw a large, white strobe light brightly blink on the horizon behind some trees, although I found it curious and watched the sky for several minutes,” the witness stated. “I passed it off as perhaps a small plane flying over the mountains. About five minutes later, as I was driving east on the Riddle bypass road towards the 103 exit of Interstate 5, we saw the same type of white light randomly blinking over another mountain top. These mountains are to the northwest of the I-5 103 exit. I estimated the lights were just over the mountain tops and about four or five miles away from where we were. You could intermittently see the reflection of some of the brighter flashes across the back of the mountain. We could see the lights start flashing in various random patterns at this point. There appeared to be one main light (about aspirin size) that would flash intermittently. It would disappear and then there would be a series of eight to ten small lights that would flash into a vertical pattern, and then into a horizontal pattern. The length of these patterns seems to vary.” Video 1, Video 2. Case 32801.
October 21, 2011
AL – Bright Light, dropping lights from it.
“I saw light in sky,” the witness stated. “It was dropping lights out of it. The lights had a long, sparkling trail behind them. I saw four to five of the dropping lights.” Case 32777.
PA – Orb.
“I saw this giant bright orb, hovering above me, and I stare at it, and then it shoots away so fast, I can barely understand what just happened,” the witness stated. “It was a really bright orb.”
VA – Bright Lights, Roanoke; Read Mountain.
“My attention was immediately directed to a light or cluster of lights that appeared to be just over the top of Read Mountain by a couple hundred feet at best,” the witness stated. “The best guess at the distance (with my brother’s help as well as Google Maps) was about 2000 feet from where I was standing. From my vantage point, you could hold a tablet of aspirin flat at arm’s length and it would just fit in between the mountain and the lights. The lights were unusually bright for a plane or any other aircraft that I’ve witnessed, and seemed larger than they should be for the distance. They were flashing and brighter than any star in the same area of the sky, as well as any plane, of which there were many, but certainly not at that low of an elevation. Additionally, there were no planes in that particular part of the sky. They all were off to the east and west flying overhead from east to west, and at no less an elevation of 85 degrees compared to the 20-24 of the lights. It was very clear to me that it was some sort of motionless craft, not a star, street light (it was in the air over a mountain with no lights) or any other common occurrence.” Case 32781.
VA – Bright flash of light; blue; 11:30 p.m., Pocoshock Drive.
“Suddenly everything illuminated with a blueish white light that continued for what seemed about three seconds,” the witness stated. “It was almost as if a light switch had been turned on. I could not see or figure out what was causing such a bright light. There are mature trees on either side of the road, so it was difficult to see a large enough portion of the sky. My thoughts were, ‘Are we being attacked? Is this an explosion?’ I braced for a bang but then the night blackness resumed – followed quickly by a flash over the tree tops to my right and then whatever the source it was gone.” Case 32789.
Older UFO Eyewitness Testimony
July 28, 1975
NV – Alien abduction.
“All of a sudden real bright lights were in my rear-view mirror and I remember being on a table and these human-like beings around me,” the witness stated. “When they talked to me, it was done telepathically. They had a grayish color to them. Next thing was, I awoke and was sitting on top of a mountain above the highway. I was on and my van was on empty.” Case 32782.
August 15, 1997
TX – Small object with four lights.
“The object seemed to have no outline as it moved overhead, and I could see that the lights were two circular white lights and two diamond-shaped white lights. They were arranged with the two diamond-shaped ones on the right and left and the two circular ones in the front and rear.”

Just for fun
U.S. military explanations were partly cloudy today; retired military testimony was hampered again by a complete downpour of mainstream media blackout; witness accounts of military helicopters chasing UFOs reached an uncomfortably high humidity; while White House alien disclosure was obscured another day by Tropical Storm You-Can’t-Handle-The-Truth. Elsewhere scattered around the country was a continuing UFO research effort hampered by low and partly windy funding.
