Jan 4, 2018; Over Wyoming
About 1:00 PM.  Enormous craft, seen by 4 people, at 55,000 ft, from the window of a private jet flying from Seattle, Washington to Lakeland, Florida.  There were four people on the flight, the pilot, the co-pilot, a man and his wife (the reporting witness). More  details at 20180104wyoming.htm

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)

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. 20, 2018; Malmstrom AFB, Montana
Contact at OSI Malmstrom AFB reported that another sighting has occurred over a launch facility causing a power outage for ten minutes. Object described as over half an acre in size. Described only as black. If contacted, Malmstrom will confirm power outage but nothing more. Source considered reliable.

Jan. 24, 2018; nr Malmstrom AFB, Montana
Object observed near/over a launch facilty, described as half an acre in size. Power outage reported. (Under investigation by MUFON)

January 24, 2018; Malmstrom AFB, Montana
An alleged UFO incursion took place at one of Malmstrom AFB’s missile sites, according to a self-described “retired police detective” who posted a sighting report at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) website. His account, inserted here, has been corrected for grammar and spelling: "Contact at OSI Malmstrom AFB just reported that another sighting has just occurred over a [Minuteman missile] launch site, causing a power outage for 10 minutes. Object described as over 1/2 an acre in size. Described only as black. If contacted Malmstrom AFB will confirm power outage but nothing more. Investigators (MUFON) are on their way. Last sighting was in May 2017. This source is reliable and confirmed as am I. (Retired police detective not given to exaggerations.)" After this report was brought to my attention, I emailed a high-level contact at MUFON and asked whether I might be given the unidentified poster’s name and contact information. Although the organization will not, as a rule, divulge an anonymous source’s identity, I have a longstanding relationship with MUFON whereby they assist me in my research efforts whenever possible. I subsequently wrote to the retired detective but received no response. Consequently I was unable to learn more about the alleged incident. I suspect that the original source for the story—the cited OSI agent—was not terribly happy with the public airing of the event, assuming that it occurred as described, or the reference to himself. Presumably he told the detective not to discuss the matter further. In any case, if the report is accurate, it appears that the UFO-Nukes Connection is currently active and ongoing. Indeed, I have a number of civilian contacts who live within Malmstrom’s huge missile field—some of whom have an ICBM launch facility on their property—who have reported multiple UFO sightings to me over the past ten years.

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).


February 9, 2018; Derry, PA
11:18 p.m. I saw a very bright light in the sky. At first I truly thought it was a plane. As the object got closer, the light's and object became brighter and larger in size. It looked like an enormous spotlight in the sky, heading towards us. It moved fast until it came close to us, then it moved almost in slow motion until I stopped in the middle of the road, just staring at it. I then pulled into the gas station, and was yelling at my husband to grab my phone and record . Repeatedly asking him, "what is that"? What is that?? I could see the entire underneath of it. It was a semi- diamond shaped object. I say semi because it wasn't EXACTLY a diamond shape. Under the object there were dozens of florescent lights, ranging in color from blue, green, red, and orange lights.. Underneath there was a semi circle of lights blue and red. Around the semi circle was a shape of a diamond or square depending on the viewpoint. The lights outlining the square/diamond shape underneath were green and orange in color. I am a person of sound mind, but this had me completely shaken. I was screaming at my husband, and honestly thought I was going insane. Never in my life have I seen anything like this. Ever. There's not a soul in this world that can tell me, nor convince me that this was a plane. It appeared to be 8 times bigger than any plane I've ever seen in my life. I am still very confused, and shaken over this. I will never in my life, forget this experience. For it has made me really think, over and over..... what did I see in the sky that night??? (MUFON CMS 90175)

Feb. 24, 2018; Southern Arizona
Bt. roughly 3:30 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. local. A series of strange events occurred high up in the flight-levels 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. t 2018-02-24-FAA-Southern Arizona.mp3

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... More details at  20180303lagrange.htm

March 4, 2018; Tacoma, Washington
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)

7:56 PM, local. Lady reported an object described as an orange/yellow orb was observed to move towards her and up a 400' hill. Street lights went out. (NICAP)

March 19, 2018; Norwood, Ohio
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)

March 20, 2018; Mt. Vernon, Indiana
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)

April 22, 2018; Manheim, PA
5:14 p.m. Was traveling on 81st towards Harrisburg,PA, Was on what the locals call Lavelle Mountain. Just all of a sudden this object appeared over the interstate and appeared to hover stationary for like 20 seconds and quickly went into the trees on my right at a high rate of speed. Object appeared quite large. At first I thought it was some type of drone but it moved too fast to be one, kinda looked like a lunar lander in my opinion. I was shocked by what I saw and got emotional. When I had passed the spot where I thought the object would be but found nothing.(MUFON CMS 91575)

17:40. An observer told of a disc, imbedded in a super bright transparent sphere, travelling in a northerly direction. Witness had grabbed a pair of binoculars and had gotten a good view of the object. Within the space of approximately 30 seconds of viewing with binoculars the object had just blinked out. The object appeared to be at about 1500-2000 feet, and what surprised the witness was how very bright it was, so much so that it hurt his eyes to look at it and was even more painful with magnification. He was left with a temporary flash burn on his retina. His field of vision was unobstructed 20-30 miles left or right of center.. His son also watched it for 2-3 minutes before it blinked out.

19:30. Observer reported what looked like a missile shaped object going through the sky with no sound in broad daylight.  His family was outside and the 5 yr old was looking up at the moon when he shouted, "what is that"? They all looked up and saw the object flying over. Two pictures were taken, the best one provided here. Witness thought for sure it was an airplane, but upon zooming in he didn’t see any wings and it looked like a missile or blimp. Object was travelling even slower than a blimp. Then about 2 minutes later they saw a second one fly over.

May 25, 2018; Paulsbo, WA
20:30. Witness was enjoying the beautiful orange cast of a colorful sunset, upon the landscape in his rural yard, including dense trees. The treeline starts 200 to 400 yards away. He was seated on his deck facing east. A quiet time since there is very little traffic on his road and the birds were settling in for night. A fast moving object caught his eye above the trees headed directly west into the sun. It was a beautiful brown metallic structure. The intensity of sunlight made it shine and revealed shadows indicating layers of metal. It was submarine shaped only with sharper rectangular edges defining its exterior. It did not have an intake opening for jet a engine. It did not have a propeller. It made no noise. Silent and fast. He did not have time to grab a camera. His cellphone was in the house as he liked to enjoy nature without electronics. Just prior to this siting a bald eagle flew directly over the open part of the yard heading northeast almost at eye lev! el since their house is on an elevated part of the property. The navel base at Keyport, WA was lowering their flag just prior to the sighting. (MUFON CMS 94857)

May 26th, 2018, Huntington, Long Island
12:59 p.m. local time. A Piper PA-32R Saratoga (N161MA) was flying over Huntington, Long Island during a trip between Minute Man Airfield in Massachusetts and Old Bridge Airport in New Jersey when the pilot encountered a strange object directly in front of his aircraft. He called air traffic controllers stating "I have an object in front of me, I don't know what it is." The controller replies "You mean like a drone or something?" The pilot responds: "I don't know if it's a drone... It's bigger than a drone." The controller responds "Ummmm, I don't show anything on radar." The controller then asks if the object is at his same altitude, the pilot responds in the affirmative. Then the controller asks if the pilot needs to make a turn to avoid the object and the pilot requests a slight change in direction. The controller then queries the pilot to report what he thinks the mysterious craft is as soon as he can. The pilot responds that he has no idea what it is and it has since gone behind a cloud. "Definitely something was there" the pilot states. The controller seems oddly adamant that they should assume it was a drone, stating "Ok, I mean, we'll have to assume that it was a drone, that's the only, I mean I don't know if that's the shape assumption or not but I guess that's what we will go by." The pilot responded, "Actually, it looked, uh, like it had lights on it." The controller responds "That's uh, really interesting, uh again, I show nothing on radar so I don't know what to say." The pilot then states "Ok and I know I'm not delusional." The next transmission we hear is from the controller asking the pilot to call in and make a report with specifics about the incident once he lands. He notes that the request is from his manager. The pilot quips "this is the first time I'm getting a phone number that I'm not in trouble!." The controller laughs and affirms to him he is not in trouble. He then passes him the number and says they will be awaiting his call. The Piper stayed at about 6,000 feet during the cruise portion of its flight. Weather that day included clear to partly cloudy skies with the temperature in the 80s and benign winds. (The WarZone, June 19, 2018)

23:35. Orb of white light flashing intermittently and changing direction over livestock farmland. Seven hours after alert and 92 miles from MADAR site. Primary witness, his brother, and girlfriend were outside when they noticed a white, intermittently flashing orb hovering behind trees in his backyard. It resembled car’s headlight but there was no road there. It disappeared and then reappeared seconds later above the treetops, flashing for a few seconds then disappeared again. It reappeared behind the trees, downward and to the right of where it was just seconds prior. Witnesses were freaked out and went inside the witness home and watched from the window to see if it reappeared, but it didn’t. It made no noise. Witness suspected it was possibly a drone but nobody lives anywhere even close to where the light appeared to be.(MUFON)

It was reportedly very high up in the air, yet seemed as large as a commercial sized plane. It was also going across the sky in a fairly fast rate of speed. It produced no sound and had no visible wings. Where he assumed the wings should be, there was a dark ring around the object.

Witness looked up and saw a bright gold glowing (area),  so bright it lit up the surrounding clouds. Witness was reportedly "scared to death" but couldn't show it. She didn't want to alarm the kids. It didn't behave like a flare from the military base nearby and it didn't have blinking lights like an airplane, helicopter or drone. They sat there staring for what seemed like ten minutes, nd then, all of a sudden, it either shrank into nothing or it took off so fast it looked like it did.

10:05 AM. For two days, witnesses had seen multiple objects in the sky. They appeared like stars, but clearly moved and pulsated. They reported 4 objects last night (5th). It was as if they were in a grid spreading out for many miles over the sky, zigzagging in various directions but always returning to a fixed spot. Four of the witnesses saw the same thing.

It moved side to side as if troubled with control. He thought it was going to crash, then it turned sideways and the sun shone off it brightly. It was not a helicopter and seemed maybe bullet shaped, of bright chrome. It continued to attempt control then steadied itself for a few seconds before flying straight up above the clouds. He could still see it through a hole in the clouds and watched until it shot off to his right, traveling fast enough that he only observed it again because the sun struck the chrome once more, before it was out of view. 5 mins.

It was the shape of an isosceles triangle, much wider in the rear, and the two rear corners had intermittently flashing lights. He was unsure of the color of the lights or even if they were colored. This huge object was moving south and there was no sound at first, but he then heard helicopter type sounds but no helicopters were visible. 1 min (NUFORC)

04:15. Witness was in his front yard. Directly across the street he saw a dark triangular object illuminated by moonlight and streetlight, gliding in the air just behind and as high as the streetlight which would be about 30-40 feet high. It was shaped like a giant moth. It was about 3 feet in diameter and maintained a constant speed of about 20 mph. He could see the silhouette of it silently gliding in a straight path heading SW for about 1000 yards before losing sight of it, and it did not flap any wings. He has searched the internet for night flying insects or birds that may have fit the description of this thing, but there were none that size. "It was a spooky thing to witness."

It might have been moving very fast because the pictures were only 1 to 2 seconds apart. Photos was taken with a ZTE N817 phone.  20180901monticello_94650.jpg  (MUFON CMS)

12:00 AM??? Witness noticed Venus, following the sunset, and Saturn, in the SSW, were very bright as he arrived home. As usual his neighbor's dog, a large but very friendly, female, Pit Bull mix, was there to greet him. After watching Venus for a moment he saw, a few degrees off, what looked like a huge band of lights - white surrounded by red - began flashing and moving in his direction. As soon as the flashing began the dog seemed frightened. Whining, repeatedly bumping his legs and jumping up to push on his chest. When the object was almost directly overhead the lights changed to all white and flashing sequentially from rear to front. At that point a soft gold color glow defined the edges, giving him the shape he tried to illustrate. The object silently continued east until lost behind a stand of trees. As soon as the object was out of sight the dog made a short huffing sound, looked at him for a moment, then, seeing no reaction, calmly went home. He noticed something else. He has raccoons in his attic space. They are usually active from dusk til dawn. At that time it was strangely quiet up there - an hour after the event.(MUFON CMS)

161.4 miles away to the NNE.

September 14, 2018; Evansville, Indiana
3:00 AM. Witness was at work on the city's east side not far from hwy 41 when he noticed a bright orange light to the east through an open garage door he was working close to. He estimated it was at least 10 to 15 miles away but the height was hard to judge. "If you stuck your arm straight out it would have been less than a fingers width away from a tree line that was over a mile away. Probably hundreds of feet from the ground." The light was definitely lower and brighter than any star in the sky that he had ever seen. It was also brighter than a passenger plane flying not quite overhead of where he was, and larger. His first thought was that it was a helicopter with a search light since it seemed to be stationary, and he figured a bright search light may explain why it looked so big. He watched it for around 3 minutes before he had to walk away for about 10 seconds, and when he returned to see what it was doing it had vanished. He watched for maybe another minute and it still hadn't returned. That's when he thought maybe it was a UFO. He went to tell a co-worker about it and took care of a few things which took about 10 minutes and went to look again and there was another orange light. This time it was off to the left a bit and a little higher. "I would say at least a mile north of the first light. My co-worker was close by so I called him over to see it." They talked for a couple of minutes about it while they watched it and then it just disappeared. It was like someone just flipped a switch and it was gone. After another 15 minutes or so he went back to look and another light appeared while he was watching in the same place the first one was, except this time it was a deep red. Then this one started ascending higher into the sky very slowly, and after it moved about an inch or so from his perspective it kind of changed colors back to orange. It stopped after another inch or so and stayed there for several minutes before disappearing. He had forgot to mention that between the first and second light he had seen an object fly from the direction of the lights toward and straight over him to the west. "It didn't appear to have any lights. It looked like it was reflecting the lights from the city. It looked grayish and maybe triangular. It was moving almost as fast as a meteor and over twice as fast as a plane." It was probably several hundred feet from the ground. After the third light he witnessed, he and his co-worker were standing at the garage door when he saw a light that appeared even further in the distance than the original lights. Then a second light appeared to the south and another appeared to the north. All three were slowly moving up and down and changing the intensity of their light. Eventually they disappeared one at a time. Then about 15 or 20 minutes later he was looking again and saw a bright red light blinking very rapidly in the distance for about 10 seconds. All of these lights were definitely hundreds of feet in the air, brighter and larger than any aircraft he had ever seen, moved in ways that he had never seen a regular airplane move, and were not stars or radio towers. He wasn't able to take pictures because it was night and the distances, and there were street lights in the foreground screwing with the focus. Also, the sighting didn't really make me feel any certain way but it did give me good bumps.  (MUFON CMS)

At 6:19 witness went to the kitchen and from my patio doors saw two pulsating, strobe like lights in the Eastern sky. The lights flashed red and white and were above the tree line. The lights came closer growing in size and hovered side by side. The one on the left moved away from the other light and the lights of both objects pulsed faster and brighter.Then the light on the right went to the East and witness watched until it was out of sight. The other light went south and was observed to move fast across the sky until it was out of sight. Neither one diverted from its path, in other words they moved straight in a path. Witness first thought of the lights that flashed on high towers but realized there are no towers there. Witness thought it might be a reflection but there was nothing in the house behind that was lighting up and there were no windows behind witness. The lights reminded witness of strobe lights as they were pulsating very fast. They were too large and too bright to be airplane lights and moved much faster. Witness lives near an Air-Force base and an airport so observes airplanes, jets, and helicopters on an hourly basis. The only thought was that it might have been large drones.

20:45 Witness went out to his back yard to look for his cat. He had received a pair of night vision goggles for Christmas for sky watching, so he brought them with him to help look for it. It was a clear beautiful night, so the witness started looking at the stars.After 3 or 4 minutes witness saw what was thought to be a satellite traveling west to east, but quickly realized it was too big, too bright, traveling too slow and it was flying way too low to be a satellite. Witness watched it as it traveled straight overhead. When the goggles were pulled away witness could no longer see it with the naked eye. It started to get a little bit brighter and then faded away and just disappeared. As it was fading away it became transparent before disappearing. (NUFORC Note: The object was not the ISS, which was visible from the witness's location at 8:47 p.m. (local), but which was visible in the extreme northern sky. Also, not an Iridium "flare." PD))

Approximately 2:00 PM.  When witness first noticed the object it was over I-77, south bound, slowly heading from E - W about a quarter mile from the exit. While driving home from an eye appointment, object first seen it was not a plane, blimp or helicopter and observer felt a little anxiety / excited. Thought it had disappeared until he/she got to next exit where it was behind the trees. When observer stopped at light was able to take four pictures using an iPhone 7plus. From the freeway the object was approximately at 3 o’clock high. "When I saw the object from the exit ramp it was approximately at 2 o’clock high behind the trees. There were no lights or sound, the color was dull gray. Moving very slow and low. When the light changed I turned left on to the I- 77 overpass then right on to Mull Ave.As I passed where the trees and object were I could not see it anymore, it’s like it just disappeared. I had a clear view once I passed the trees. I should of been able to see it behind or over the trees. There are no airfields in the area. I checked the Goodyear blimp schedule for Oct 26th, there were no blimps flying that day." Temp was 28 degrees, overcast light rain, wind slightly from the North West.

10:25 pm. Witness noticed a bright light that first appeared to be a plane descending over the Middlefield hills while looking out the front window atop a Durham ct hill. Witness was located south of it, facing north. It moved slowly in a downward 45-deg direction towards the west, paused, and descended again slowly straight down. It paused again, then spun as if it was a centrifuge. Lights dimmed and disappeared. Guess at location would be, near Wadsworth State Park or further north. It was unusually bright. (MUFON CMS)

Forty miles to the east is Norwich, CT, MADAR Site Node 103. Anomaly was detected ten hours earlier at 12:39 PM

5:00 AM. Witness had just left the house. It was dark and the sky was clear and he could see all the stars. He remembered standing at his truck and thinking it was a beautiful morning. He got in his truck and drove about 2 miles up the road and saw something flashing to his left. He slowed down to about 5 mph and then pulled off the road to watch it. It was glowing red and V-shaped and as wide as a football field. It was as low as a crop duster plane fly’s. There were 4 white orbs that looked to be the size of a VW Volkswagen and they were solid white balls of lights. The orbs were at about half a mile away from the large V.  One ahead like a leader, one behind and one on each side. All 5 were stationary for 15 minutes. The leader orb and the big V slowly headed east to Carmi Illinois, still low to the ground. Then the 3 remaining white orbs lights went dim and followed. Then all 5 lights went out. Then he drove into town in Mount Vernon and as he was passing West Elementary School a huge white orb lite was traveling from N to S at such a high speed he could not follow it with his eyes.

At approximately 6.47 am, the pilot of a British Airways flight, call sign Speedbird94, contacted Shannon Air Traffic Control (ATC) to ask if there were military exercises taking place in the airspace through which her Boeing 787 was passing. There were no military exercises underway. Shannon ATC replied: “There is nothing showing on either primary or secondary [radar].” The pilot responded: “OK. It was moving so fast.” The controller then asked: “Alongside you?” The BA pilot, flying from Montreal to Heathrow, describes how the UFO came up along the left-hand side of the aircraft, “then rapidly veered to the north”.She said it was “a very bright light” that “disappeared at very high speed”.She said they were “wondering” what it could be, that it did not seem to be on a collision course. The pilot of a Virgin Airlines Boeing 747, call sign Virgin76, then joined the conversation and made reference to a meteor or another object re-entering the earth’s atmosphere and said there were “multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory”. He said they were very bright “where we were”. Shannon ATC than asked if the pilots knew which direction the objects were heading. The Virgin Airlines pilot said it was in his “11 o’clock position” with “two bright lights over to the right”, that then climbed away at speed. Shannon ATC told the pilot it would pass that information on. Shannon ATC then told Speedbird94 that “other aircraft in the air have also reported the same thing so we are going to have a look and see”. Another pilot said the speed of the UFO was “astronomical, it was like Mach 2”, or twice the speed of sound.

5:28 pm. Witness walked out of the house and just looked up, and there saw the "lights" rotating. Was leaving and thought maybe they were someone's Christmas display. Thought it would be visible later but when witness returned from playing a basketball game at about 9:20 pm, looking in the now clear sky there were no lights. (MUFON CMS)
