The  UFO Chronology
___________________________________________________________________________________    

January 12, 2013; West Melbourne, Florida
8:20 p.m. The primary witness and his wife pulled out of their driveway to go out to dinner. As the couple drove W down their street, they saw 3 bright lights in a row in the sky. They assumed that the lights were Chinese lanterns since they were all at or above the same elevation. As they drew closer to the lights they realized that the lights formed a single object. As the object turned the lights were in a pyramid shape (this would indicate a rotating of the object to cause the three horizontal lights to move into a pyramid). At the same that the object turned, it bolted away at an incredible speed and disappeared in a few seconds. (MUFON Case 45185)

February 18, 2012; Near Chase City, Virginia
2:00 PM. Two pilots witnessed close up UFO while flying from Charlotte to Richmond Virginia. E-M effects. (MUFON Case 36293)

April 13, 2013; pilot near Picayune, Mississippi
3:30 p.m.  A pilot of a Cessna 172 at 2,500 feet altitude and traveling north towards Picayune, Mississippi, spotted a small metallic object about three feet in size just off his right wing. His attention was drawn to the fact that the object remained stationary with his aircraft for about two seconds before moving slowly away to the south. The object's shape was oval with a small triangular-shaped dorsal winglet in its center. In the pilot's own words:   "I did not see any seams, markings or lights on the object which resembled a shiny football in shape, only a little more rounded. In the center of the object was what appeared to be a small dorsal wing but the wing was 90 degrees to the direction of flight, which made no sense to me." (MUFON Case 46835)

April 25, 2013; Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
At at 2122 Local/April 26, 2013 0122Z a Customs and Border Protection Caribbean Air and Marine Branch DHC8 maritime patrol aircraft was on a routine patrol when it encountered a UFO immediately after takeoff. The object was spotted visually by the Captain of the aircraft, and the Aguadilla control tower operator. It appeared to have a strange red light. The Customs and Border Protection crew thought the aircraft might be a smuggler so they began to follow the UFO, and record a IR video. The UFO circled the Aguadilla airport and made its way to the ocean. Initially the UFO appears as a forward flying horseshoe, then as it makes its way to the ocean, it changes its configuration to a more spherical shape. The UFO skims on top of the ocean, and submerges, unaffected by the hydrodynamic forces.

June 15, 2013; Bellingham, Washington
10:00 p.m. A 60-year-old postal worker and his wife, who served in the USAF in intelligence, witnessed a rectangular-shaped object maneuver through the sky and come within 100 feet of them. With extreme precision it maneuvered itself down and executed perfect turns avoiding electrical poles, wires and street lights. Both witnesses described the object's color as changing from a glowing red to a dull gray as it performed a banking turn and came to a standstill. The color change was not uniform as the color change began at the top of the object and moved downwards to its base. The object was described as about the size of a large SUV and at its closest approach about palm-width in size at arm's length. The wife described it as tumbling along its center axis. Drawing of the object provided by the wife. (MUFON Case 49005)

August 20, 2013; Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
9:45 p.m. Three vehicles pulled over off of a freeway to observe a strange object that was crossing in front of them. The highway lighting made it easy to see a 30-foot in diameter spherical object move very slowly across the freeway just above the utility poles. The object, only a few hundred feet from the stopped cars, was apparently solid with a glow that illuminated the trees as it passed by. The primary witness exited his car and attempted to take a photo with his cell phone but all of the camera functions were dead. He continued to view the object for another 45 seconds. Once the object left, the witness's phone operated properly again. RenditionClose-Up  (MUFON Case 50042)

August 28, 2013; Ontario, Canada
9:40 pm. A hunting party of three men observed a barbell shaped object within 400 feet of them. The object interfered with operation of their Motorola radio, a cell phone, and a Sony Cybershot video camera. Object was within view for about five minutes. The primary witness owns a company that receives DOD contracts and has put together a 17 page report and a video on their sighting. (MUFON Case 74282)

September 26-28, 2013; Venice, Florida
Evenings. In southwestern Florida over three consecutive evenings two different couples reported a boomerang-shaped craft that was transparent to the stars except for its edges which slightly distorted the sky and stars as it moved forward. The object's movement and appearance was compared by one of the witnesses to that of the shimmering object seen in the movie "The Predator."  Witnesses reported either no sound or a slight electrical crackling noise. Assuming the object was the size of standard aircraft then its altitude was fairly low, between 3,000 to 6,000 feet. (MUFON Cases 51156, 51269 and 51270)

9:00 p.m. A father and his daughter had left Denver and were traveling west on Highway 40 on their way home to Steamboat Springs. The father noticed two white lights in the distance that he initially thought were Venus and a dimmer star to the lower left. The dimmer light began to descend erratically. It seemed to wave back and forth rather than just move straight down as it disappeared behind a stand of tall pine trees. Just as the smaller white light disappeared, he saw the larger light that he thought was Venus begin to grow as it approached rather quickly. At this point he told his daughter to look up and she immediately saw the object as it sped towards them. The growing round white light developed a red border that transitioned into a solid red light. A very short bright green line had also appeared just below and to the immediate left of the solid red light. The object then slowed and swerved to the right (north) towards the father's truck. When the object was positioned just to the left and in front of them, it dropped in elevation and began to slowly pass overhead. As the object slowly moved above them, the father could see that the short green line was actually a long flat, bright, rectangular strip. Both remarked about how crisp and clear the green box angles were and how there was no glow given the brightness of the green light. The father had previously worked with low powered lasers (<100mW), and said that the green color was exactly at 532nm. They were not able to see any reflections on a craft body or wing/propeller parts. All they could see were the lights. The object slowed considerably almost to a hover as it was above them, and they were able to see it clearly before passing underneath. The car was traveling between 65-70 mph, so anything small should have zipped right over them, thus indicating the object had to be of considerable size. Once the object passed out of view above their windshield, they were unable to see it again out the back window or rearview mirrors. He and his daughter did not want to stop and get a better look. The father commented that he had never seen a solid object emit such a bright green light. (MUFON Case 51360)

November 19, 2013, near Valdosta, Georgia
6:20 p.m. Two witnesses, each with over 30+ years experience as Army and Air Force aircraft maintenance technicians, reported that on November 19, 2013, at 6:20 p.m. they both observed a huge triangular flying object that flew about 500 feet above them moving from north to south. The surface of the object was not clear, and had a rippling effect like a heat mirage down the road on a hot summer's day. There were no anti-collision lights that should be on all aircraft. They both said that the object had a wing span larger than a C-5A cargo plane and flew slowly at 10 15 knots (12-17 mph) allowing an examination of the underside of the object. The object flew silently with absolutely no noise. As it slowly passed by, the rear of the object displayed a row of white pulsing lights. These lights did not light up the exterior of the object but were set back or surrounded by a shroud. As it got further out a very small drone-like object was noticed flying alongside on the left. When the object got further out it banked to the southeast allowing them to see clearly the triangular shape of the object. The next two drawings were made by one of the witnesses and display the object from two different angles as well as the drone with the red/white rotating lights. (MUFON 52339)

December 24, 2013; Boise, Idaho
9:15 p.m. Three sets of multiple witnesses at different locations observed a bright red light in the sky for several minutes. One of the witnesses grabbed a video camera and filmed the object.  A second slightly dimmer light that flashed dropped from the primary object. It moved downwards and then back upwards and then downwards again. After the second downward drop the light disappeared and within seconds the primary light also disappeared. No explanation was apparent as to the source of the two lights that the witnesses saw. (MUFON Cases 52930, 52934 and 52942)
