Jan 13, 2018; about a mile north of Cedarville, Illinois
12:00 AM. Witness reported a shiny, reflective, cigar-shaped object pass over his field of vision while driving on highway 26. The object went from NW to the E over the horizon before leaving his FOV. About 45 seconds later, a second object appeared in the NW and again passed over him. Halfway through it appeared to descend suddenly straight down without changing its angle, like a helicopter. It descended for 3-4 seconds before heading in the same direction as the first object. A third object appeared from the NW and followed roughly the same direction as the previous two. Entire encounter lasted roughly 6-7 minutes or less. (MUFON CMS)

Jan 25, 2018; Cannonsburg, Kentucky
Approx. 9:20 p.m. A couple were driving down State Route 5 when they noticed some abnormally bright lights in an area free of homes or structures. What first drew their attention was how bright the lights were, and being very familiar with the area tyhey knew there was no explanation within the realm of normalcy to explain the sighting. One witness felt particularly ill immediately before and following the event. Another factor that perplexed them was that the apparent aircraft failed to produce any sound. The craft was larger than any commercial airliner. They immediately went home to research and look for similar stories as to what they had just encountered. Primary witness stated that the other person was previously a die hard skeptic. (MUFON CMS)
