8:00 a.m. Witness and a neighbor observed an alleged rotating disc with lighted windows. It appeared to be hovering about 2 to 3 miles from their position. They provided three photos of the event but object appears to be much closer and a ground target. (MUFON CMS)

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)
Jan. 27, 2018; Evansville, Indiana
6:00 p.m. Two anonymous witness were driving near Harmony Way and Cave Avenue on Evansville's west side Saturday night when they saw some strange lights moving across the sky. The objects, described as orbs (color not mentioned) that were dropping out of the clouds, two at a time, then heading west to east across Evansville before turning SE. One source says 3 sets of two orbs, another newspaper article says eight orbs. Moving pretty fast they were gone in about 6 minutes. Witnesses took videos with their cell phone and they reported a military jet was following the objects. A check by FI indicates FAA confirmed no mil jet but a conventional aircraft was on the radar at 37,9000. (MUFON, Phil Leech).

Bt. roughly 3:30 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. local. A series of strange events occurred high up in the flightlevels above Southern Arizona. N71PG, a Learjet 36 belonging to Phoenix Air, and American Airlines Flight 1095, an Airbus A321, had independent close encounters with a strange craft flying at around 40,000 feet. The planes were flying east at about 37,000 feet between the Sonoran Desert National Monument and the New Mexico border when the incident took place.

2:14 PM. Sitting at desk looking over photos from previous night's ISS pass over, witness heard what he thought to be a snow plow coming around the corner from the SE, but there was no snow on ground. Had to be jets based on the sounds. He grabbed his camera next to him and got to the door in seconds, the sound intensifying as two A-10s flew over the house headed NW followed by sounds fading fast. He ran out the door down the steps and half the driveway for a clear shot without trees blocking line of sight. He obtained one photo in with the wrong setting (nothing but white) changed settings to auto adjust then got a series of photos focusing on the A-10s using the viewfinder to watch them before they got too far for the camera to capture clearly. Then he watched for a few seconds by eye clearly seeing two planes but a third object ahead of them darker and smaller didn't seem to be a third plane. Trees and horizon blocked his sight as they flew over to the N. He went back inside and started looking to magnify the photos and noticed the dark object they were following in the photos was too blurry for him to really see any marking or even basic shape. He showed these photos to the family and they weren't too sure what the third object was either. For years the A-10s have had training flights right over their house at least once or twice a year. There has always seemed to be just two A-10s that he'd seen flying in formation using the farms and silos as targets, they usually branch out over both roads after crossing over his house. The sounds just seemed different this time to him. this time you can see in the photos they are both heading the same way after a dark object. One plane appears to be changing course to follow the object. [Photos submitted to MUFON]. (MUFON CMS, Ridge)

8:45 PM. Witness went outside to take the garbage to the alley and noticed a red glowing object (not blinking) off to the east, estimated at about a mile or two away It was about 30 degrees above the horizon, at first assumed to be a helicopter or a plane since there's a military base and airports nearby. But he noticed it was travelling faster than any military aircraft he'd ever seen, and being as close as it was it made absolutely no noise. It traveled left to right really fast, then stop instantly, then went back in the opposite direction and instantly stopped, then returned to right again "super fast". It moved off towards the SE very quickly and he lost sight of it. (MUFON CMS)

10:20 AM. The man was on his way to work, and was stopped at a traffic light, noticed the object moving. At first he thought it was a plane but it had no wings. then maybe a blimp, but it was too small. it was pill shaped, white with a dark band from top to bottom. It seemed to be coming in for a decent and was moving at a good rate of speed. He thought this was odd because there were no landing fields in the area. It was not very high up and he lost view of it behind the nearby building. He estimate the size as 30 foot long by 10 feet high. He was very interested in the object and it seemed to move slow and silently but his next turn was away from its path. (MUFON CMS)

Approx 6:30 AM. Witness known to this office reported he was driving to work on hwy 62 (Newburgh to Mt. Vernon) at a point between Caborn Rd. and Gun Club Rd. when he saw an object through his windshield that caught his eye. He had to lean a little forward to see it and he only observed it for about 4 secs. He had to look back at the road and lost the emerald green end-of-pencil-like object . His wife was in a different vehicle and later she said that a man had called the radio station and had seen something as well. Weather was clear and sun was just coming up. (MADAR Cntr)
