Multiple Anomaly Detection & Recording
INTEL Summary

The Mutual UFO Network has partnered with the MADAR Project, along with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, in a joint venture code-named Project MATCH in an effort to correlate alerts regarding detection of electromagnetic/geomagnetic anomalies with actual sighting reports, and ultimately provide an early warning system to state directors and other researchers. The Project is also seeking volunteers for additional MADAR sites. This report covers the current month and may be updated at any time, but usually finalized within 2 weeks of the last month final entry date.  This is an preliminary analysis for all interested researchers. The MADAR "hit lists" are specifically for MUFON State Directors.

Corrected order and an additional sighting

July 2, 2018; Bethleheam, PA

Witness was leaving her boyfriend's house late at night to go home and saw a giant object/vehicle on the road taking it all up.  She had thought at first that maybe it was some late night street cleaning or construction vehicle. When she got closer she then thought maybe it was a tank and got scared wondering, why a tank was in her city. Then getting even closer she recognized the ufo type shape, and it didn't’t have any visible wheels. It was motionless the whole time she was driving towards it. When she finally got close enough to make it out to be a ufo she freaked out and had a panic attack.  was coming from up a hill and it was in the middle of the road, again, it was huge. Taking up what seemed like three lanes. It was gray and dull metal, not shiny. She didn’t see any windows on it from the angle she was observing from. As soon as she made out what it was she freaked out, quickly leaving the area and turning away from the ufo. ("I couldn't’t have drove past it anyway as it was blocking the whole street.") She called her boyfriend several times, body shaking and driving reckless and when she finally got ahold of him she was crying and frantically trying to explain what she had just seen. She was too scared to continue going home so she ended up just going back to his house and continuing explaining what she saw and then took him to the spot within 5 minutes of leaving and it was completely gone, the giant thing just disappeared. When she observed the object there was no one anywhere else in sight. (C.M.S. Case number - 93046) [Note the characteristic CE time in "wee hours". Witness filed online report but never responded to investigators for an onsite investigation or filled out any questionnaire. Listed as Insufficient Data but I feel that the witness was afraid to do anything further and should still be contacted if at all possible. - Fran Ridge]

23:00. Witness noticed two starlike objects moving SW to NE overhead in staggered formation, then turn and align in tandem formation after shooting what appeared to be a missile. No flashing lights. Appeared similar to satellites / stars. Initially very bright then quickly dimmed. Missile object looked almost like a meteor and was orange in color with a short trail lasting only a few seconds. Objects did not flash or appear to have any lights like aircraft. Moving at a rate of speed similar to satellites and of the same light intensity and size.(MUFON CMS)

22:07.  Witness was out for a walk with both her daughters and was about to head home when  her oldest remarked, "what is that in the sky". 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. There was only one other witness that was in front of them. It was apparently above the military base (?). [Camp Atterbury] (MUFON CMS)

Watch for a few seconds then took a few pictures , then watched it slowly take off towards the south . He has 2 dogs, so he went inside to take the 2nd dog for a walk up the street and noticed another cigar shaped object sitting in the sky and it was larger and had 2 lights on . The first object didn't seem to have it's light on and didn't look as large as the first one did . He has 8 pictures total .
