Potential Sightings of Interest & MADAR Anomalies

Louisville, Kentucky, 8/28/2022

The Project-MATCH Report for the Year 2022

This report deals exclusively with bonified MADAR anomalies and documented Potential Sightings of Interest, those that we feel are representative of the UAP phenomena.  There were a number of interesting sightings that either had too distant connections or had no obvious correlations-in-time to be used in this report. So this is an effort to show accurate results, many times using Multi-Server Verification.  This report will be subject to updating. Appropriate explanetory links are provided at the end of this summary.  The current INVESTIGATION_STATUS database report showing all these cases and others can be accessed at any time. Finally, any terms used in this report you are not familiar with are explained at the end of this report.

March 9, 2022; Harwinton, Connecticut
6:38 pm EST. Witness filed a report with nuforc that a massive black triangle with curve corners, and a red, yellowish, and blue, round set of lights under each side, had been hovering overhead.  It was dark outside and she turned on their garage light. As she walked down the back stairs to their driveway, she heard a low but deep sound. When she reached the driveway, she looked up and right above her head was a massive black triangle that also extended past their ranch home and just above their roof. Since it was dark out and the craft was black, she believes she was only able to see it because of the lights underneath it and her being underneath it as well. The lights were not blinding, so she could see the entire shape of the craft which hovered over and then very very slowly moved completely over her roof, then gone in seconds. She watched it for a good 2 1/2 to 3 minutes at most she said. She decided to find where to report, since she'd been unable to get a full nights sleep since the encounter - not through fear but the unbelievable experience she was lucky enough to have. (NUFORC).
MADAR site 151 at Newington, 21 miles east of the sighting location showed a ramped increase in field data. The sighting lasted 2-1/2 to 3 minutes and there was a field increase on the magnetometer in milligaus beginning at 11:38 UTC (same as the sighting time) and lasting about 8 minutes. Since the MADAR had not gone into alert mode, the data-rate was recorded at one-minute status intervals rather than one-second alert-mode intervals, but the next-highest reading occurred at 11:40:18 and was 8.62 milligaus. The actual highest reading was 9.38 at 11:44:18. The magnetometer had been getting readings of 0.38 to 1.12 milligaus right before the spike. Multi-sensor verification is met with the onboard compass showing a deviation of almost 5 degrees, 2 degrees over the protocol of 3. The documented report leaves no question that an object, of significant size, emitting a low-pitched rumbling sound, was apparently observed at close encounter range, possibly as close as 35' from the observer.  The other two MADAR sites had nothing impressive in their data. 151 was/is 5 mi closer than the Wallingford site to the sighting coords.

March 30, 2022; Denver, Colorado
8:42 pm MDT. A
 witness was going on a walk and saw a disc in the sky about 5 miles away. Disc had lights on it, had an aura or haze around it as well, emitted beams, and made a sound which hurt the man's eardrums. Dogs barked like hell. Disc was very bright, was almost blinding for about 3 seconds. Witness said it was very scary. (NUFORC). One minute prior to the sighting (time pieces can be a minute off) the MADAR site 34 at Elizabeth, Colorado, just 33 miles to the SE of the sighting location, had a spike of 7.12 milligaus, followed by 5.62  the next minute. The dataline at 8:42 pm which converted to UTC is 14:42:19 shows this interesting spike, but there was no MSV (multi-sensor verification) with the onboard compass of 134.05 degrees.
Four hours earlier site 156 at Estes (60 mi NW of Denver) had a full alert (code blue) but the Elizabeth site was not triggered. The MADAR data is interesting, but not as compelling as we would like. And since we were unable to contact the witness we we could not document the case nor see if there was additional data which sometimes comes out in a full investigation. There is no doubt that there was apparent UAP activity in the area as indicated by the sighting at Littleton at 10:54 pm.

March 30, 2020, Littleton, Colorado
11:54 pm MDT. An amazing sighting which occurred where a precise time was given,  As you will see, the time is extremely important. The reporting witness was driving on Santa Fe Drive and there was no other traffic on the road. Witness saw the craft to the left, right over the Roxborough Park area. The craft was reportedly huge, with very bright amber light and with different colored lights around it. Witness kept glancing at it...while driving. It didn't look like a plane or helicopter.  It gave the witness the impression that it knew it was being observed. Object executed a weird turn, dropped in elevation and flew right over the car. Witness looked up and clearly saw a round craft with a definite top and bottom. In the middle, was a series of what looked like windows separated by vertical bars. It was encased in an amber light but the middle section with the windows was turning with flashing colors of pink, green and white lights. Duration; a few minutes.
At the time of this sighting, the MADAR site at Elizabeth, Colorado, node 34, was spewing out some interesting numbers.  Mind you, there were 5 sites in Colorado, but 34 was the closest, less than 30 miles as the crow flies to the southeast. The spreadsheet indicates various forms of activity beginning after an important pretimed recalibration at 5:50:19 UTC which converts to 11:50 pm Mountain Daylight Time.  The field readings are not particularly anomalous in duration but show the one spike which occurred during the one minute paint two minutes after the documented sighting time. If the node had gone on alert (threshold was 30) the rate would have been 60X's greater. Multi-Sensor Verification was indicated by a rather large spike in the accelerometer readings from 0.93 to 1.01 and back to 0.93. MUFON case disposition: Unknown UAV; CMS No. 121928.

April 10, 2022; Clarksburg, West Virginia
1:57 am. EDT. The two wit
nesses were traveling home from an evening out and saw a huge cigar shaped craft emitting a sort of rainbow colored light arrangement. The craft hovered approximately 30 feet off the ground. As the couple approached in their vehicle it seemed to notice their presence and shined a bright bluish green light directly at them. The craft didn't seem threatened by their presence, but apparently it was aware of them being there. After possibly 3-5 minutes the craft shot up to a few hundred feet and took off in a northeasterly direction. No sound was heard as it propelled itself forward, but a low audible buzz or humming sound was present while it was hovering in front of the witnesses. As the primary witness looked back down, a second craft seemed to appear out of nowhere. It slowly crept up the hill to the same spot the previous craft had been spotted. This one didn't appear to notice them, however his fiancé and vehicle appeared to capture its interest. Being as she was pregnant with their second child, primary witness was very concerned. The craft shown a blueish green light in what seemed to be a sort of quadrant scanning sequence carefully examining the vehicle and its occupants (not sure if this was in regards to the initial encounter or the second encounter) who was afraid to make any harsh movements he remained still and refrained from making any movement. After approximately 10 minutes the craft shot up in similar fashion as the first and and disappeared in the same direction. The rate of speed the craft leapt forward with was unimaginable, gone so quickly that the speeds weren't possible to estimate. Once the craft were gone the witnesses began to travel back to their home and realized that at least 2 hours had passed between leaving their previous destination and their home. Once home they quickly showered due to a worry of possible contamination and his fiancé being pregnant. Male witness hasn't felt right since the incident. (NUFORC). There were no code blues (full alerts) listed in the MADAR Alert Search, but extremely interesting spikes were found in the field data on node 192 at Weirton.  Clarksburg is 82 miles SSE of the Weirton site.  In Universal Time Code 1:57 am is 05:57:00, so it was either a very strange coincidence or something much more.  The time of the spikes are 05:56:18 UTC (7.5 milligaus) and 5:57:18 UTC (6.75 milligaus). Allowing for a minute or two error in the witness specific timeline there is definitely a two minute spuke period in the magnetometer's field readings. There was also Multi-Sensor Verification in that the compass heading change varied from 156.28 degrees to 160.62 over those same two minutes. The tracer dot placed on the MADAR map also showed a Cambridge, Ohio MADAR site to 85 miles to the NW of Clarksburg, but node 137 was NOL (not online) at the time. Conclusions: This, by itself, is a major close encounter case that appears to be an abduction. Reluctance of the witnesses to an official investigation for something of this nature is not surprising, but it must be stated in their defense, they DID file a report, with witnesses names, with NUFORC on April 12th, two days after the incident. At the time they DID check the box for investigation. What they DON'T know is that a MADAR site less than 80 miles to the north was spewing very interesting numbers. The impression one gets (based on Operation Foal Eagle) is that the MADAR site picked up the craft entering the atmosphere, probably somewhere in-between Clarksburg and Weirton, then the object may have idled down and projected a disabling beam during a stalking phase prior to abduction. This case is not closed by any means.

April 10, 2022; West Palm Beach, Florida
2:00pm EDT. A white tic-tac-shaped object was observed by witnesses to be speeding past an aircraft, spotted against the blue sky background. The object produced no noticeable noise at that range and left no visible trail. Witnesses noticed that the object was very far off in the distance as it passed behind the clouds and drifted in a straight line until it was out of sight. Comparing the speed of the object with the nearby aircraft, it made it appear the plane was moving at a snail’s pace.The primary witness stated in the report form that the time of the sighting was 2 AM. The investigator is convinced that the witness’s sighting time was actually 2 PM. ["spotted against the blue sky and next to a plane"]. (UFOS Northwest). The MADAR site 76 at Royal Palm Beach, Florida, 11.8 miles west of the sighting location at West Palm beach, showed a noticeable spike in magnetometer field readings at the time of the sighting. The reading was not high enough to trigger an “alert”, but was significantly higher than samples taken prior to and subsequent to the anomalous readings. Two mins prior to the sighting time given, the field reading was 1.5 milligaus. One min before the sighting the number had increased to 8.25 and peaked sometime during the next 60-second data line to 9.75. If the MADAR had been triggered, the datalines would have been 1-sec in duration, but the field readings did not reach or exceed the 30 milligaus threshold. There was multi-sensor varification from the onboard compass which showed variations of almost 3 degrees.The low point was 162.72 degrees 1 min after the sighting time of 2:00 pm or 18:00:19 and the high point of 165.66 , 3 min prior and back to 165.5 at 2:04 pm or 18:04:19 UTC. MADAR Alert Search also showed a full-scale alert at node 91 at Sanford, Florida, 156 miles north of sighting coords, indicating possible UAP activity in the region. NUFORC printout also shows numerous reports of UAP and MADAR hits, and the specific correlation at West Palm Beach is interesting.

May 2, 2022; Harvest, Alabama
1:00 am  CDT. Driving on a country road the female witness looked above the tree line and saw a (couple of) bright red floodlights. She asked her boyfriend if he saw it. He responded with a quick, what the heck. Described as a matte black, large, aircraft, futuristic looking. Red floodlight.  It was reportedly moving very slowly, almost hovering, just above tree line.aoeta (?) arrowhead in shape. Approximately 5 mins. (Jeremey Haslam/nuforc listing). The spreadsheet data for Thompson Station node 33 at Tennessee, 60 miles from the sighting, for the time of incident was checked and shows the sighting time, 5 mins before and 5 mins after, running in reverse order (bottom to top). The data rate is known as the status rate and each line represents one minute. If the site had gone into alert mode the rate would have been once per second and provided 60 times more information. However, it is still interesting with the col. 6 threshold of 30, and the field readings in col. 4 going from 1.88 to 7.88 milligaus during that minute. No telling what the other 59 seconds would have been but there was a spike of 7.88 none-the-less. There was also MSV (multisensor verification) with the compass swing of over 4 degrees during the minute prior and minute during the anomaly. Distance from the sighting location to the MADAR site was a measured (as the crow flies) 60 miles.

May 15, 2022, Oregon City, Oregon
Time: 9:05 PDT (not 9:05 am as shown in NUFORC).  Husband and wife, both 65 years old, were getting ready to retire for the evening and the wife was looking out her sliding glass doors and saw a strange object over the trees to the south.  It was strange enough that she called her husband to take a look at it. At the time, they were not wearing their glasses, so their vision was not optimal.  At one point, they both went to retrieve their glasses and put them on to see better, but by then the object was moving off to the north. Investigator was told the wife’s unaided vision is a little better than the husband’s. The object had first appeared to their south, over a row of trees that are about 75 feet tall and about 100 feet from the witnesses’ location.  It paused briefly as it passed over a high voltage power transmission line, then moved toward the witnesses.  Object was described as round, and a bright, fiery orange color. At one point the object rotated upward, and like the name "Spaulding" on a basketball, the side facing them moved up on the sphere and they observed a triangular pattern of round lights on it. At nearest approach, angular elevation was about 45 degrees, apparent size was about 2-1/2 inches at arm’s length, and the distance at closest approach was about 75 to 100 feet.  Estimated altitude was about 100 feet above ground level.  No sound was heard even though it was a very quiet, peaceful evening.  The location is in the country, away from traffic noise. The witnesses felt sheer amazement  and puzzlement about what they were looking at. These are mature, very ordinary people.  Wife has a physical disability that prevented her from working. The husband is retired, and worked as a landscaper for a private college in Portland for 30 years. 
Duration of sighting: about 2 to 3 minutes. Although there was no code blue alert until the next day (which would have been the 16th), the printout for Site 66 at Portland, Oregon, shows conspicuous readings at the exact time of the Oregon City incident. The data shows spikes in the field reading during the two to three minutes the  object was observed. The readings, one minute apart in milligaus varied from 2.25 to 8.25, 3.0, then up again to 7.5 and back to 3.0. If the MADAR site had gone to full alert, the device would have ramped up to once per second. The onboard compass varied from 119.77 degrees to 118.02 to 120.4. The compass variation was almost 3 degrees, which satisfies MSV (multi-sensor verification). The most important datalines are the minutes 4:07:18 am to 4:08:18 which converts to 9:07 and 9:08 pm.  This is only guessing but it looks like the UAP had entered to atmosphere right before the wife saw the object in the south, idled down, then moved again. Oregon City is only 13 miles away. At first It did not seem be disc-shaped because it was never described as flat at any point in the narrative. After talking with the witnesses I was able to determine that the object was actually spherical, like a basketball, and slowly rotating, the words "tilted vertically" not being a good choice. This also cleared up the original claim that some features were displayed as it turned in the upward rotation. The object hadn't moved upward, it had rotated upward, displaying the triangular pattern of round lights. The evidence is compelling that a UAP was observed at Oregon City, and at the same time 13 miles to the SE at Portand, MADAR site 66 showed spikes in its data.

May 15, 2022; Surprise, Arizona
11:54 pm MST. A total lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon" was being observed by a witness laying on his back on a trampoline, talking on his cellphone to his girlfriend. He had just gotten off the phone at about 11:54  pm, and continued looking upward when he observed a triangle shaped object, also described as a boomerang, which seemed to drop straight down to an altitude above the clouds then move off to the north until it could not be observed due to the distance away from the witness. He continued laying down looking up when he thinks 3 minutes went by when another triangle object of the same size dropped down and moved north the same as the first one. A third one triangle shaped object dropped down but was considerably larger in size. The first ones were similar in size to the jets he observed two-three times a week, but the third one was 20-40 times that size. And it had the appearance of what is described as a re-entry burning effect on the bottom of the object. Not as dramatic as a rocket re-entry but some "heat" signature could be seen as the object dropped down in the same area as the previous two triangles. Only this larger object emitted a "glittery orange color for a short period of time". The witness also stated the larger triangle moved off to the north but did turn at a slight angle, and the others moved more in a straight line. Finally, a fourth triangle, similar to the first two dropped down then moved north of the witness. All four triangles were silent and moved at a high rate of speed. Known jet fighters in the area would be considered as moving like snails compared to the objects he described. There were no light sources on any of the objects. What can best be described as the objects were attempting to use some form of cloaking as they entered and traversed. After the sightings his cellphone had a black screen and had to be rebooted. 12-15 mins (NUFORC submittal. Interview by CCO*).
Using the specific time given by the witness for when the four objects appeared to be cloaking (as he originally described it) at 11:54 (6:54:19) the nearest node, MADAR site 201, also located in Surprise, AZ, was checked for data. According to the printout, the field reading raised slightly to 3.38 (col. 4). However, the compass (col.3) moved over 11 degrees! Over an 8 minute period both field and compass varied, especially the first 5 mins.  The sighting lasted from 11:45 to 11:55.

June 4, 2022; Prescott Valley, Arizona
8:35 pm MST. The chevron-shaped craft just popped up, hung in the air, and then shot off. There was one craft. it popped into view, hung in the air for about 40-50 seconds, then sped off toward Phoenix. There was one main red light and two sets of smaller lights that moved along the bottom of the craft. There was a low humming sound almost unnoticed. Animals reacted to the event. Duration 50 seconds. (NUFORC). At exactly 03:35:19 UTC site 201 at Surprise, AZ, had a good spike in the geomagnetic field reading of 9.75 milligaus. It more than doubled. And the compass heading varied way over the 3-degree protocol from 219.24 degrees prior to the sighting to 227.33 degrees. Prescott Valley is 66 miles north of the MADAR site. And the Scottsdale sighting occurred the next day.

June 8, 2022; Glendale, Arizona
1:07 pm MST. A large shadow moved over the witness house which literally darkened the inside as well, passed across (the area) and the power went out for a few seconds. It was only the shadow the witnesses saw as they were inside. It darkened the rooms of the house. This was bizarre as there was no sound; no engine noise whatsoever. Duration: 5-secs. Witness had remarked that there were electrical or magnetic effects. (NUFORC). Due to possible power outage at MADAR site there is a loss of data of about 16 minutes. A large shadow moved over a house, literally darkened the inside as well. As it passed over the power went out for a few seconds. This was 13:07 pm, the afternoon. The local time converted to UTC would have been 20:07. The Surprize, AZ node 201 is only 12 miles away NW of the "sighting" area. The question is, did we get any data? We had a recal at 19:58:18 and then a reading at 20:14:18. That means we have 16 minutes of missing data. Something unusual happened at Glendale and involved a brief power outage, followed also by a power outage at Surprise that prevented us from getting any readings. The recal should have recalibrated the unit for better readings but instead an untimely power failure interrupted the event.

June 19, 2022; McKees Rocks,Pennsylvania
5:47 pm CDT. Witness had been laying on a lounge chair for quite a while looking at the sky and watching airplanes fly by when suddenly a silver object coming from the north crossed overhead. It was moving at a similar speed and height as the planes that fly by as they approach the airport. However, it appeared much smaller than a passenger aircraft. There was no sound and it looked very silvery white in color and appeared to be oval shaped. However, witness could not discern a definite shape and doesn't know if it was some sort of balloon, but it appeared to be moving at a steady pace and a steady trajectory and not floating. Witness had to stand up in the middle of the video to continue watching it beyond the tree and it was quickly out of sight within a few seconds. Witness doesn't know what it was but I thought it was worth sharing with somebody who might be able to figure it out. (MUFON), Weirton, WV is 28 miles east of the sighting location and the nearest MADAR site, node 192. The spreadsheet showed spikes within 3 mins in the field reading from "0" to 2.25 to 11.25 milligaus. However, the onboard compass went from ambient of 154.37 to 158.65, right at 21:47:19 UTC line, followed by the field spike 3 mins later of 11:25. My first thoughts were a balloon but the direction was problematic. I checked with MUFON to ascertain the CMS # and the disposition. The MUFON FI conclusion was unknown UAV.  The investigator found no evidence to suggest this was an IFO. The field investigator did a very good job in the investigation, and MUFON does not think it was a wind-driven balloon. This is just anther case where our MADAR UFO Officer, Jeremy Haslam, selected an incident that looked like a potential sighting of interest and the data from a nearby node suggests the anomaly was genuine. Since the MADAR was not in alert mode, the data are 60-sec lines rather than 01-sec lines.

July 2, 2022; North Kingston, Rhode Island (Photo at top)
5:05 pm EDT. Object was just hovering in mid air, unlike any vehicle or object on earth and not affected by wind. Witness stated that If you look at the image, below the object you can see air that looks oddly affected by the object, like a desert heat movie effect. The object did not move in the small time they viewed it, as they could not just stop their vehicle on the bridge. There was absolutely nothing else around it or attached to it so it makes no sense as to how it could just be hovering thousands of feet in the air. Far too large to be a drone. At the specific time of this reported sighting there was an ongoing spike in the field reading of 5.62 milligaus that began 3 mins prior with an ambient of 0.38, ramping up to 3.38, then 5.62 for two minutes. There was no direct MSV with the onboard compass. At any rate there was a bigger spike 4 mins after the onset of the report that would be technically interesting if the UAP applied power upon departure at that time. No duration was given in the nuforc entry but investigation could have shed light on that aspect. What we DO have though is a photo that is reminiscent of the Trindade photo of 1958. Contact information was obtained from NUFORC, but witness, who requested he be contacted, has not been available for interview. Case held open. (NUFORC)

July 3, 2022; Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania
9:30 EDT. Very bright lights on triangle craft, completely silent, steady speed coming in their direction, got close to use them, disappeared. Looked different than aircraft (planes or helicopters, which they see all the time. Had triangle shape, mostly noticeable because lights were on the 3 corners. When it got relatively close to them, the lights seem to pull together and it then disappeared right in front of them. Duration: 3-mins. (nuforc) No code blue. Data from 2022-07-04 converted to 2022-07-03 01:30:18.At time of sighting at Bloomsburg, MADAR site 177 at Allentown, 58 miles to the SE had a slight spike in the field reading from 3.75 two mins prior to 6.75 milligaus. There was MSV (multi-sensor verification with compass variation from 279.9 degrees to 276.43 degrees. The time given was 3-minutes which is close to the data, suggesting that sighting may have begun at 9:28 pm and object departed during the 3rd minute. The distance between the sighting location and the dataprobe is about 58 miles.
July 9, 2022; Spencerville, Indiana
At 4:30 pm EDT the primary witness and his wife were in a boat on their lake. Their 9 year old son had fallen from his ski close to the shore, and as they were picking up the ski they had to stop the boat. The witness looked up in the clear blue sky to the right over the tree line and saw a white round object traveling from right to left (E-W) at a high rate of speed. The object was traveling faster than anything he had ever seen and couldn't have been visible over a minute or two. It travelled the entire length of the sky and then disappeared. They had seen airplanes in the sky prior to and just after this incident, but nothing was travelling anywhere near the speed this was. He had pointed to the object in the air and his son said that he saw the same thing. As his wife looked up she HAD  also saw the object as well. The object probably had been at about 10,000'  and about a mile out. 1-2 mins.
The primary witness just happened to be the owner and operator of MADAR site 81 at Spencerville. The MADAR-III dataprobe had not gone into alert mode because the shield or threshold was set at 34 milligaus, 4 points higher than the default setting, and about 9 milligaus higher than the erecommended setting. But looking at the data from the spreadsheet for site 81, one minute prior to the sighting (watch can be 1 min off) the magetometer recorded a notable spike in the  geomagnetic field reading of 15.38 milligaus. The object was too slow and trajectory too horizontal and flat to be a daylight meteor. Object was too fast to be an aircraft, and no sound was heard. There were no noticeable features such as wings, vertical stabilizers, etc. The FMO (fast-moving object) was visible for 1-2 minutes according to the primary witness. Since the dataprobe never went into alert mode the data is in 60-second datalines and the spike occurred during the 14th minute, suggesting the sighting was less than two minutes. Therefore the object's high performance status might have been the cause. The spike was at 19:14:19; estimated sighting time was 19:15. However, there was no MSV (multi-sensor verifiation) with the onboard compass, but the object was moving so fast it may have not been able to distort the compass field long enough to affect it. This was either an uncanny coincidence or a documented UAP/MADAR correlation. Another way of looking at the data on the spreadsheet, during the 18 minutes shown, the highest reading was 15.38 and dead center at the time of the daylight visual sighting by no less than three witnesses.

July 10, 2022; Alexandria, Indiana
12:57 pm EDT. It was a very clear day. Witness was working in the garden, looked up and noticed a bright, shiny "paramecium shape object" streaking across the sky from N to S across the airspace west of town. No wings, a cylinder streaking across the clear sky.   Witness tried to explain it as a bird but it was higher than a bird in flight. It appeared to have no wings but may have had some thin structures like pipes, at front and back of the flat cylinder like shape. Witness considered a possible airplane at high altitude but it was travelling about 10 times faster than a high-flying aircraft. Witness then took several steps out from the shade of a tree and the object came to an immediate and complete stop for about 1 second. From an extremely high rate of speed south to a complete stop. It then changed direction 120 degrees back and up. Within about 3 seconds it was out of sight completely. It appeared to go nearly straight upward, away from the earth. The movements of this object were not normal and definitely would fit a UFO report. It reminded the witness of the incident with the jet and the tic tac in the Pacific. 20-secs (NUFORC). No code blue. However, at the exact time of the sighting at Alexandria, node 22 at Swayzee, 19 miles NW of the sighting location, had a slight increase in readings in the geomagnetic field, but actually had a higher reading 2 minutes prior (8.25). But during the minute prior the reading was 1.5 milligaus, then doubled to 3 at 156:57:19 UTC. During the next 3 minutes the reading was 3.75, then dropped to 0.75. MSV was met when the onboard compass varied from 146.1 to 149.04.

July 10, 2022; Queen Creek, Arizona.
8:38 pm. MST.  The witness was driving southbound on Hawes Road and observed what appeared to be an oblate spheroid shaped object. As he crossed the Chandler Heights Rd intersection, the street lamps were non-existent. This dark road and sky made the sighting jump to his attention in the upper right of his windshield. It was moving very fast. The color was a vibrant emerald green color with an aura of yellow around it. He thought it might be fireworks, but then it arched downward for a brief moment (as if dropping altitude) then leveled out and accelerated very rapidly in a straight horizontal line from east to west across the valley floor. He estimated it was downrange from his car as close as 3-miles away at an altitude of 500 feet which is well below the height of the San Tan Mountains (3,104 FT). It was accelerating much faster than any light aircraft or helicopter that is common to see in this area. The weather was windy with lots down drafting wind currents from a lines of thunderstorms in the area. It was dusty and gusting to 40 knots which obscured the moonlight, so this was really bad weather for a private pilot to fly in with a light aircraft from nearby Pegasus-Queen Creek Airpark. He was driving at the time with his phone plugged into his armrest on Apple Car Play, so he didn't have enough time to grab his phone for snaps. 10-seconds. (NUFORC).
The field data is not compelling but zeros out at the specific moment given by the witness. The accelerometer reading has a very slight peak at that time. Neither is that interesting as compared to other "data" cases. But two minutes prior to the event the onboard compass showed a variation of more than 3 degrees. Mesa site 207 is only 16 miles NW of the sighting area. The sighting was documented as filed on July 10th at 12:50:16 AM. The duration was a brief 10-seconds. If the witness was correct, the object had dropped down and leveled out then accelerated very rapidly in a straight and narrow line east to west. The compass variation was from 344.53 degrees to 349.76. However, the compass variation alone gets this incident at least into the compass-case category of over 150 incidents. Due to the brevity of the incident the value of this case is somewhat limited.

7:30 pm. The lady's own words: "I observed doughnut shaped craft moving over my yard with excellent visibility conditions.  I was in my backyard along with our two dogs. My son was in his bedroom, my fiance was dozing in our room. The sky was clear and really stunning, with gigantic thunderheads south of us and a bright moon. In the west the sun was going down but the view was absolutely clear, birds were still singing. Beautiful evening, very still and peaceful. I decided to water all of our potted plants and fill the birdbaths despite a chance of rain. As I walked to the rear of our property, I saw an object moving over our neighbor's trees. It was about the altitude of a private plane, maybe a bit lower, and I could see it very clearly although I had no idea what it was and my brain was just trying to make sense of it. It was a black and thick round disc, looked metallic but not shiny. Graphite came to mind. It moved slowly, silently and *deliberately*. It floated with intent. It came over the trees like a frisbee, but then turned on its side like a wheel, and I could see a hole in the middle, like a doughnut. It kind of undulated when it turned to its side. I was transfixed and everything was just silent for many minutes. Suddenly I came to my senses and ran as fast as I could to the house to grab my phone from the charger. I ran back out trying to get my phone started up and pull up my camera. By that time (seconds had passed) the object had turned due north, oriented like a frisbee again, and had moved with high speed away, to where I could not find it in my camera viewfinder. Then it was a speck, then gone. I was flooded with adrenaline and realizing I'd seen something I'd never ever expected to see. I then had an overwhelming feeling of foreboding and uneasiness, and thought to myself 'I hope it didn't see me watching it'. I came in and told my son, who then pulled up a number of YouTube videos, photos, of "black doughnut UAPs". They were exactly what I saw over my yard, although I had no knowledge of that shape prior to my sighting. I've told very few people, and with trepidation. About me: I consider myself an open minded individual. I am a mom of two nearly-grown sons, age 57, hold a bachelor's degree, am involved with community events and sit on a board for a local nonprofit, and started my own small business in the arts during the pandemic. I'm imaginative but not delusional. I was one hundred percent sober, awake and fully cognizant. I've always been a sky-watcher and find the subject of UAPs/UFOs fascinating and completely plausible. I'm glad that the evidence is finally receiving the grave scientific attention that is warranted. Side note: the dogs made themselves scarce, I did not notice them near me or any interaction between them at that time. (nuforc) 10-minutes, approx. The sighting time was roughly 7:30 pm, so a specific reference to use for the spreadsheet data for MADAR site 21 at that point was not possible. However, what the data shows is that the dataprobe at that Indy site a little over 20 miles to the north of Franklin had a system recalibration at exactly 23:30:20 UTC, or 7:30 pm EDT! Right before that, during the same minute, the magnetometer field reading was 4.5 milligaus. Three minutes before the sighting (IF the sighting occurred at 9:30) the field reading had had a significant spike of 11.25 milligaus during that minute. The threshold on node 21 was 30 milligaus, so it would have taken 30 or more to trigger the system and read at 60 lines per minute. An under-trigger reading, although still very significant, registers at one line per minute, meaning the data listed at 11.25 could have been even higher at any point during that minute. Unfortunately there was no variation or MSV (multi-sensor verification) with the onboard compass. Update: The interrogation of the witness on January 2, gives the time as 7:27 pm 23.27 UTC and highlights the magnetometer reading of 11.25 milligaus, the highest on the page. The update sighting time highlighted an obvious spike in the magnetometer reading of 11.25 milligaus. The compass heading change was not significant and did not provide the multi-sensor verification of 3 degrees.

August 11, 2022; Willimantic, Connecticut
2114 hours. This is a very sketchy preliminary report with what might be important data if an investigation were successful. According to the witness, two craft of some sort were observed flying side by side, triangular in shape, with lights on them.  The very brief report ended with the statement that these craft passed over Highschool Mountain Avenue directly overhead and were low flying with no noise. Witnesses opened the sunroof as the objects moved over Eastern Connecticut State University. Of particular interest here were three things: 1) A specific time was given. 2) According to the witness, "they then moved straight up quickly." An important maneuver, a vertical ascent!  3) A MADAR site close to the sighting area had registered an anomaly. [2 or more witnesses, 3 mins] (NUFORC).  At Newington, Connecticut, only 27 miles west of the sighting area, site 106 had a slight but noticeable increase in the magnetometer reading during the next minute, from 3 milligaus to 6.75 at 01:15:19 UTC.  Since time pieces (analog verses digital, etc.) can vary at least a minute, this point could be clarified. The dataprobe was set at a threshold of 22, which would have triggered had the field reading reached or exceeded 22 milligaus, but had not, which means the data-rate was one-line per minute rather than the one line per second alert rate. However, the onboard compass had varied from 3 minutes before from 100.57 degrees to 103.64 degrees. The sighting lasted three minutes, so the vertical ascent should have occurred at around 9:17 EDT. But the jump in the field reading was at 9:15. Case closed as Insufficient Data, CMS 127840. Witness had approved contact at the time of the sighting, but has not responded to recent attempts by FIs, probably the result of the 3-4 months it takes for us to get to a sighting. In any case the case was documented in the initial form "n" filing.

August 17, 2022; Rising Fawn, Georgia
2:37 am. Witness reported an up-close encounter while driving home. It started as a random lightning strike (convincing him that it was about to storm) The lightning was one long streak, blue and pink in color so it had a beautiful purple tone. One second he's seeing the lightning miles away in front of him, and then suddenly he's seeing a triangle formation of lights within his peripheral vision. It was enough for him to hit the brakes of his car and turn his head completely around to observe what was happening. The craft was HOVERING right over the power line that runs down the side of the road. He got to see this in such detail from underneath ( it was triangular in shape but also resembled a half diamond shape) 4 lights underneath in total.  Three lights at each pointed section and one light in the middle. The craft was dark grey in color, fairly large in size, and was close enough for him to see the lines and details that it had. He knew instantly that it wasn’t a plane because it was completely still as it hovered and it was oddly shaped. It wasn’t a helicopter because it wasn’t shaped like one at all and it was completely silent. His ability to form logic or an explanation had failed and then aIl he knew that this was a UFO and he had the response to get as far away as possible from it. Less than one minute. (nuforc) The index/preliminary report has two sighting times listed, 2:38 am EDT by NUFORC and 2:37 am in the report as stated by the witness. Not sure where the error came in and by whom. Either way the field reading from the magnetometer is not very impressive. There were more interesting readings 6-7 minutes before all this. But this COULD indicate the UAP was performing at a higher lever as it approached Rising Fawn. And the onboard compass had a MSV (multi-sensor verification of at least 3 degrees) in its readings 1-2 minutes prior to the appearance at Rising Fawn. The compass heading gyrated from 83.37 to 79.82 to 78.07 degrees. This also suggests those readings preceded the rendevous with that city. If these two theories are correct, the MADAR site is located at Ball Ground, GA, 72 miles SW of the sighting area, and this would/could indicate the craft was moving northeast and passed over BG first.
August 28, 2022; Louisville, Kentucky
04:15 am EDT. The witness observed the object (see drawing) for less than 20 seconds hovering above his home and then traveling northeast very slowly approximately 300 ft up. Object had a slight humming and sucking sound associated with it. Object was round on the bottom and he was nearly directly below it. Object's lights were yellowish/orangish/redish with four very dim white lights all emitting light from underneath object. The four white lights were hexagon shaped and the center of object was a large hexagon shape with the orange/yellow/redish color emitting light from there, all lights were steady, no blinking.The large center hexagon shape had bright yellow colored railing similar to what's found on a bow of a boat, appeared to be an area to walk out onto and observe below? The entire object and lights appeared to be under shallow water changing the shape very slightly yet still very visible. Witness had been totally freaked out ever since his sighting and was totally frozen as the object passed over him and his home. Never a true believer in aliens or UFOs prior to this sighting and always scientifically minded. he knows what he observed and considered all possible explanations, both his mental clarity and other obvious explanations. Nothing man-made that he is aware of could do what he observed. Emitting nearly zero sound, zero heat, and essentially hovering and traveling slowly in a straight line without wings. He has asked a few neighbors if possibly they observed as well but to no avail. And he was very emphatic that this was not a drone! There are other tidbits he has left out from his experience if needed, but that's pretty much what he observed. If he had to put a guess on size he would say 60 to 80 feet, round shape, with many hexagons underneath the object. (MUFON CMS 124872) At the time of the sighting at Louisville, Kentucky, 4:15 am EDT (08-28-2022 08:15 UTC) , the MADAR site (also in Louisville), node 206, showed a significant spike in the magnetometer field reading. This actually occurred at 8:14:18 UTC, possibly due to an allowable one minute error in time pieces. The magnetometer reading changed from 4.5 to 10.5 milligaus. A smaller spike of 8.25 milligaus preceded this three minutes before the sighting. Also, a significant variation in the onboard compass heading, 246.61 to 243.38 (over 3 degrees MSV prtotocol) occurred during the 1-2 minute period. This case was investigated by MUFON and declared an unknown. The drawing that was provided is one of the best, most detailed, we have ever seen. The MADAR data suggests that the magnetometer spike was associated with some event during that 60-second period on Node 206's spreadsheet and the spike was the highest reading ion the entire page. As much as we detested the sometimes pesky and untimely "recalibration" during some UAP events, this time the recal was early enough (at least 6 minutes) so as not to  skew the numbers, so the values are considered reliable. (Recal has since been removed from the printouts).  The exact distance between the sighting event and the MADAR site was not calculated, but would have been of more interest had the UAP gone into some dynamic maneuver and the MADAR site had gone into full alert. The threshold setting on most of our nodes is set at a 30 milligaus to avoid false alarms.

August 29, 2022; Auburn, Washington
11:06 pm PDT. Witness was outside and reportedly saw a black cigar-shaped UFO with 2 white lights, one on each end.  She and her husband were sitting outside in their back yard looking at stars. She looked up from her cell-phone and noticed over the tops of their trees a brighter star, but it was moving with another star, or light and staying at an equal distance apart and moving in unison across their back yard. She yelled, so her my husband looked up and saw it as well, and he took a video with his phone, (it was too dark). Here are the points of what she saw. It was a black cigar shape, approximatgely 300ft long. It had one bright white light on the back end and a smaller white light at the front.The huge body of the craft blocked out the stars as it moved & also blended into the night sky, so that details on the craft were not visible. It moved slowly over their trees and up into the middle of the sky until it disappeared into the heavens.There is a bog on their 10 acres and she has seen lights there, and once a huge beam of light over or in it before, and has lived there for 24 years.  (approximately 8 mins duration) [nuforc]  No code blues with MADARs but there was some data from one of the two nearby nodes that might be of interest. But site 50 at Lacey, about 34 miles southwest of the sighting location had an untimely issue occur. Our periodic system recalibration executed a recal right during the sighting minute at 06:06:15 UTC!  This changed the "ambient" numbers of the magnetometer and the onboard compass so that the variations are of no use in this particular event. Thanks to the Edmonds site 61, 36 miles SW of the sighting location, we were able to get some dependable readings.  There was a slight increase in the magnetometer reading during that minute of suggested but specific time of 11:06 pm (06:06:19 UTC), of 6.75 milligaus. This is a "snapshot" taken during that 60-second period and the numbers could have been higher at some point. The sighting lasted approximately 8 minutes and there was no evidence of any dynamic power utilized by the UAP on departure. Unfortunately there was no MSV from the onboard compass which never varied 3-degrees or more during the 8 mins.

September 4, 2022; Montara, Caifornia
15:30 hours PDT. Large cylindrical structure was seen at the top of mountain adjacent Montara State Beach area in the vicinity of Montara CA. While travelling North on Highway 1 (Cabrillo Highway) along the northern California coast, as the witnesses rounded a bend in the highway they spotted a large, cylinder-shaped “structure/object” at the top of one of the mountains in close proximity to another (man-made) structure. At first, it appeared this structure was some sort of large parking garage as it had a cork screw pattern running up its side. It was tall, completely smooth and a cylinder in shape. It was white with a black stripe moving up the structure in a cork screw pattern. At the top of the structure were a number of smooth silver cylinders that were capped with smooth silver spheres. To the right of the silver cylinders was some sort of object appearing to hang over the edge of the structure. Unfortunately, the primary witness didn’t get a good look at this hanging object. The structure was tall and looked very out of place for the surroundings which is why they first noticed it. Both the prime witness and the other witness studied the object for one to two minutes before their attention was momentarily drawn to the surrounding highway traffic. When the witness looked back to continue looking at this cylindrical object, it had vanished and was nowhere to be seen. As they rounded the mountain where the cylinder had been, they could see the backside of the mountain which was vacant with no indication any type of structure/object had been there. 1-2 mins. (NUFORC) If the time given for the incident is accurate, at that exact minute, the MADAR site 52 at Los Altos, California, 25 miles to the SE had a spike in the magnetometer reading.  The site hadn't gone on alert because the threshold was set at its normal 30 milligause, so the data-rate was one line per minute. During that minute the field reading had registered 12.75, and there is no way of knowing how high the reading may have actually gotten. However there was no MSV (multi-sensor verification) with the onboard compass which is the protocol of a minimum of 3 degrees variation. There was no pre-auth but NUFORC was able to reach out to the witness who then came forward. Object was declared an unknown, CMS #132179.

September 14, 2022; Corydon, Indiana
07:08 am EDT. Driving late at night down a two lane country road. As they rounded a 90-degree turn the objects were their waiting and they were very still until witnesses were right beside them. And at that moment they broke off and started hovering over top of the car. As they were doing this one of them was "like going in crazy directions moving in ways nothing of this earth can do" and they were completely silent. They would not leave them alone and stayed less than 25 ft possibly above their vehicle and just kept following and staying above them except the one which was flipping, floating, and moving "crazy like". They followed the witnesses we drove very slowly, and at one point the witnessees stopped the car and the objects also stopped and hovered over them in silence. They did this for about 45 minutes until witnesses made it to the Ohio river and at that point the objects flew off "so fast they just disappeared". (NUFORC)
The MADAR site 29, just so happens to be at Corydon. The field reading shows a slight variation from 5.62 milligaus to 9.38 (col. 4) one minute after the specific start time of 7:08 am or 11:08:19 UTC. Three minutes prior to the start time the onboard compass (col. 3) showed a variation of at least three degrees, from 193.91 to 197.01. Ten minutes prior to all this the MADAR dataprobe had gone through a routine periodic recalibration, so the the data is concidered accurate.

September 15, 2022; Woonsocket, Rhode Island
9:10 pm EDT. (issue with time being resolved)  Witness was sitting out on the steps on the deck in the backyard. Through the trees, witness saw a bright light and thought it was odd. Witness got up and saw a semi circle of lights on a hovering circle object. The lights were dull to bright, very slowly hovering left to right. I ran in to get my family, to show them out of disbelief. They too see the object and we alerted the neighbor who also came out to see the strange hovering object. It stayed in the area for a good 30 minutes before going higher in the sky and out of sight. I also received clearer image from another person via fb that captures a clearer image. My phone doesn't catch night vision (NUFORC)  The sighting occurred at Woonsocket, Rhode Island. The nearest MADAR site, 102, is across the state line at Worcester, Massachussetts, but only 24 miles to the northwest.   If the time reported is accurate (and time pieces can vary 1 min) there was a slight spike of 4.5 milligaus in the magnetometer reading at 01:10:18 UTC which was 21:10 hours or 9:10 PM EDT. Curiously, there was a one and only tiny increase in the accelerometer reading at that exact minute of 1.02. But, the onboard compass heading changed over three degrees from the minute before from 182.05 degrees to 186.9 and increased even more to 188.1 into the next minute.

September 17, 2022; Provo, Utah
1:40 pm. Witnesses were sitting on a rocky bluff taking in the scenery and the primary witness happened to notice a bright, shiny object against the deep blue sky. At first he thought it was simply an airplane. But as he watched it for several more seconds he noticed there was no movement. It was totally suspended in the sky, estimated at 2000'-2500' in the air about 3 miles away. To be sure it wasn't moving. He put his thumb up directly under it and watched to see if it went up/down or left/right of his thumb. It did not move. It was hovering in place against ridiculously strong winds blowing from south to north. He watched this strange, hovering behavior for approximately 2-3 mins. About 1 minute after he began watching this object, he said to his wife Connie, "Connie, check that out. There's a UFO right there", said it half-jokingly, but in his mind there was no other logical explanation. He guessed he was looking for some confirmation that what he saw was actually happening. They watched it together for another minute or so while it was hovering in place, both of them entirely perplexed. His wife even said to him, "That is really, really weird!" Shortly after she said that the object began to descend rapidly in a controlled manner down and to the left (from south to north) into the strong winds. He quickly grabbed her phone and started recording a video. He couldn't actually see the object on the phone because it was so far away, but he tracked it with his eyes while he moved the phone downward where he thought the object would remain visible in the frame. He lost the object with his eyes (and the phone) when it dropped to the same level as the mountains, which apparently is why the video ends abruptly. He thought it was gone, but it was not. They got a visual on the object again about a minute later. It was hovering just above the treetops in front of the distant mountain. Kind of fading in and out of visibility. Then it just disappeared. Poof! Gone! 5 mins. (nuforc)  If indeed the sighting at Provo was at 1:40 pm, the MADAR site printout for site 181 at Vernal shows an anomaly right at 19:40:19 UTC. It is a magnetometer reading of 6.0 milligaus as compared to the reading of 3.75 before and after the event. Which means the reading could have been higher during those three minutes, but that isn't much and is not really what we would hope for according to protocols.  The sighting reportedly lasted 5 minutes. The witness did not see it leave so there is no evidence of any dynamic departure, just a poof, it was gone. Interestingly though, at that 5th minute which would be by the witness own admission about 1:45 pm, there was a hefty spike in the magnetometer reading of 9 milligaus, the highest reading on the page! There was no multi-sensor verification by the onboard compass with this event. One would not expect as much since Provo is 114 miles west of the MADAR site at Vernal, Utah. On the otherhand, Salt Lake City had a MADAR site 175 located only 39 miles to the north. But for some reason that site which was scheduled to be moved slightly on 7/12 never went back online and was Z'd out of the system on 8/1. Unknown - CMS #125240.

October 9, 2022, Newington, Connecticut
The MADAR Operator for Node 106 in Newington, CT received a MADAR SMS (cell phone text "short message service") alert. It stated that at 5:57 pm EDT 106 had detected an anomaly at his home. He immediately grabbed his binoculars and went outside to his backyard to see if he could spot anything unusual. At first the only thing that he saw was a few planes flying by, and as he was looking through his binoculars at one the planes, he spotted a small round black object descending from the clouds above the plane and ascending back up. It repeated this maneuver twice as if trying to stay concealed in the clouds. (CMS 125762}.
This was a MADAR "code blue" and the local geomagnetic field distortion went from 0.38 to 25.88 milligaus with a duration of 5 seconds. The was no MSV (multi-sensor verification) by the onboard compass. Although the sighting value is less for a distant object, this is listed as an unknown UAP and the incident is clearly classified as a MADAR "code blue"/UAP sighting correlation. The sighting and alert occurred within the same minute and the local magnetic field distortion from 4.88 to 25.88 milligaus lasted 5 seconds. But the incident had no MSV (multi-sensor verification) by the onboard compass. MUFON FI determined the cloud cover was at 4318', and since the witness saw the UAP descend from the clouds at least once, the object had to have been at that level and higher at one point. Calculations of the size of the object which was viewed through 7x binoculars varies and depends on the actual slant range rather than cloud ceiling. Numbers attempted ranged from 1.6' to 3' or larger. Was this the object that tripped the MADAR or did it just happen to be another object associated with a larger object, such as a probe or satellite object. The Accurite Weather data chart also shows possible anomalies in two areas: 1) There is a bottoming out in the UV index from about 6 pm to almost 9 pm. 2) At the same, the barometric pressure had stair-stepped up to a higher over the same period.

October 11, 2022; Portland, Oregon

8:00 pm. Not sure how accurate the time estimate, but stated as 8:00 pm or 20:00. Witness claims he/she saw what seemed to be a saucer type UFO that night. Witness tried to count the number of red lights along the perimeter and said that he/she thought there were 6 or 7. The one in the middle was the largest and it was pulsing on and off. The others were smaller and less active but kind of twinkling like stars. Also the lights seemed to be slowly rotating around the craft as it slowly flew from South to North. Witness got a good look at it with binoculars. The craft itself was very dark and the witness said he/she could barely make out the bottom edge against the night sky. About 2 miles east of witness, 10 degrees off the horizon. Length of object was approximately about 100 feet in length. Observed about 3 mins. (nuforc) If one assumes the reported time as 8 pm, and with the usual one-minute error, with the converted time of 20:00:18 UTC there was a slight spike in the magnetometer reading at 19:59:18 of 6 milligaus. There was no MSV, however, with the compass heading. There was a recal at 19:56:14 so the readings should be fairly accurate. Similar to the
Tyrone, PA photo of Oct. 4.

October 12, 2022; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
1:00 am. An object with a red light was slowly flying parallel over the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia, approximately one mile from where the witness was standing. Witness did not pay much attention to the object until it passed behind a building and immediately came back from behind the building. The first thought was that it was too quick to do this and it did not seem to be flying backwards. It continued slowly flying back to its original position hovering over the bridge for about one minute. Then, suddenly, it flew toward the witness and stopped about 20 feet away. The time it took to fly from its position over the bridge to the position 20 feet in front was less than a blink of an eye. Right before that the witness could see a tail behind the object, an after-image created from the speed of the object and the red light. As it hovered in front of the witness for some reason the object could not be seen clearly. Object was fuzzy and one could see almost like an outline and the red light was on the bottom of the craft, but no navigation lights. There were no wings and the object seemed to be the size of a small bus, and it hovered in silence. As it started to fly away, the red light was now seen to be actually the outer rim of an opening with a bright white light in the middle.  Living in an apartment building with possibly 8-9 apartments on each side, and on the 27th floor with another 4-5 floors above that, the observer at standing position saw it fly away. It did not arch up as most crafts would require and simply raised up and flew away. Witness' background is computer technology. (NUFORC). The sighting location at Philadelphia is 25 miles south of the madar site at Furlong, node 38. Sighting times such as 1:00 AM are not so precise and  3 mins later at 1:03  AM (5:03  UTC) there was a spike in the magnetometer reading of 8.62 milligaus. Most notable, though, was the compass heading change far exceeded a 3 degree fuxuation from 117 degrees to 137 degrees.

November 3, 2022; Murphy, North Carolina
1:00 pm. Witness was driving west on 64, passenger open, and he saw the UAP above the tree line by about 100’. As he was watching it, it looked like a shimmering silver football shaped cloud, but a little sharper. It was matching his pace (60 mph approx) when it became even more fuzzy and shot off westbound at about 200’ angle to the horizon. He said  he wasn’t going to say anything until he saw this article (report by Roger Marsh of MUFON). Pretty much the same thing but he never saw an end view. He's ex-Navy, worked on the flight deck of the USS Ranger CV-61. So when he said this thing shot off to the horizon at >400 knots, he's seen fly byes, and hat thing was moving.  Duration: 25 secs. (nuforc)  Interesting data from Murphy, NC which is 55 miles N of the MADAR site 129 at Ball Ground, Georgia. The reported sighting time of 1 PM converted to UTC is 18:00:00.  However, most time pieces are within a minute so this could easily be 18:01 which has a spike of 8.25 milligaus on that time/data line. And the compass heading change was over 5 degrees within 2 minutes. 5-7 minutes after the initial time of 1:00 pm or 18:01 the magnetometer was showing additional peaks. That could mean the UAP was active in the area longer than the initial sighting. The nearest site was actually only 46 miles away to the north at site 35 which is at Maryville, Tennessee. The magnetometer reading went from 1.5 milligaus to 9.0 during the next two minutes. MSV protocol was not met but was close when the onboard compass changed from 201.53 degrees to 204.22 (within 0.31) the next two minutes as well. The investigation could determine where the UAP was and where it went in relation to the two MADAR sites. MSV wasn't met and MUFON would not investigate it.

November 3, 2022: Stoutsville, Ohio
9:22 pm.  This report was selected because we had a MADAR site 10 miles to the SE which showed some interesting numbers and the sighting had a specific time associated with it. As the witness was driving on a dark road, out of nowhere the sky lit up and a bright round object with lights appeared which had lights beaming down "so bright you couldn’t stare at it" with several other unique objects lit up flying toward it. Witness attempted to take cell-phone pictures, but said the camera went black. Was able to capture some of it. (NUFORC). The witness reported that this occurred at a specific time, 9:22 pm. Thirty miles to the SE is MADAR site 144 at Farmington Hills. Converted to the MADAR system time of 02:22 UTC, there is a noted spike during the next minute on the magnetometer reading, from 1.5 milligaus to 6.75 milligaus, the highest reading on the 20 minute page. Not only that but the compass heading changed over almost 5 degrees during the next two minutes. If the witness was not familiar with the area and a jet aircraft had turned on its landing lights, it might explain the visual sighting. If this was a situation where the witness WAS familiar with the area and a jet on landing approach could be ruled out, the value of this case would go up very quickly. We would also have had some additional details, such as directions, duration of sighting, what happened to the object, etc. But the contact information provided by NUFORC did not work.

9:30 pm. This is an interesting sighting for the MADAR group because of the implications in regard to Operation Foal Eagle, dealing with either vertical descents or vertical ascents. In this instance a witness reported a single light dropping straight down from high in atmosphere. The person walking east down 17th Street in Tacoma two blocks near Union Ave, witnessed a ball of light, seemingly high in the atmosphere drop straight down - unlike a meteorite entering the atmosphere. There were lights on the object and the object left a trail. An investigation might determine if it was a trail or an after-image (if the light/lights were bright enough). The object disappeared as it descended low. The duration of 5 minutes is also interesting since similar sightings were very brief. (NUFORC) The time of the incidence lacks a specificity in that 9:30 pm is more general. If the incident actually occurred at 9:27 pm the data makes perfect sense. The sighting location was about 24 miles from the MADAR site 50 at Lacey, Washington. The data in the printout suggests an anomaly occurred at 21:27:18 UTC with a spike in the magnetometer reading of 7.5 milligaus from 1.5 and an onboard compass variation from 186.49 degrees to 183.54 over a 5 minute period. The sighting had been picked as a PSOI because of the anomalistic nature of the target, lights on an object leaving a trail, for about 5 mins, and the vertical descent. No explanation for this event has been found.

At 6:25 AM Eastern Time on the morning of Saturday, December 10, 2022, the witness reportedly sighted a massive, obsidian-coloured, cigar shaped object on the way home from work on the night shift. According to the witness he was wide awake, fully sober, fully alert, and still focused on the previous evening's shift at work. This object was massive, appeared to be about 2000 meters long and 150 meters wide, headed east at 1500 km/hour, around 35 km altitude. The object obscured much of the sky and appeared to be enveloped in a long, black, oily bubble. He claims he had a sense of anxiety observing this phenomena. 5 -secs. (nuforc). Orefield is 6.4 miles west of  MADAR site 177. There were no code blues for that node in December until the 27th. However, the sighting was listed as having occurred at 6:25 am, which converted to MADAR time is 11:25 hours. That's the pesky time of what we think/thought was a systemic error which occurs a half dozen times a week among our 160+ nodes. But once before, we had a similar situation that turned out to be our best case yet involving an unmistakable close encounter MADAR correlation at Indianapolis on September 6, 2021. The point is, at the moment of the Orefield sighting the MADAR site was registering some interesting readings at the non-alert 1 minute rate from the magnetometer from 1.5 to 3.0 to 2.25, then at 11:27:18, 7.5 milligaus.  But even more interesting, and the equivalent of a multi-sensor verification, the onboard compass varied from 272.91 degrees to 277.72 over that 2 minute + period. Last but certainly not least the accelerometer reading was at the highest point at the moment the object was first spotted. MUFON CMS 132031. There was another sighting the same day 40 miles away at Warminster at 8:30 pm.

December 15, 2022; Conway, New Hampshire
17:00 EST. While driving, the witness reportedly saw a large, saucer shaped craft with a domed top (like a stereotypical flying saucer). The saucer was large, witnessed at a distance, and appeared to be at least as large as an airplane, and had many lights in multiple colors (mostly red, blue, and yellow). It reminded him of a  carnival ride, the colors and lights were so bright. It was low in the sky to the west of him and hovering for roughly 30 seconds to a minute. While driving he passed by some trees and lost sight of it for a few seconds, but came out and was still able to find the craft unmoved from its previous position in the sky. However, when he passed by more trees, he found that the craft had completely disappeared. He could not find it at all, not even distantly, so it would have to have moved very fast to be completely out of the sky in those few seconds he was out of sight of it. 1-min (NUFORC). The time given wasn't specific, but was reported as being 17:00 hours EST. If the saucer craft dropped down vertically 3-4 mins prior and to the northeast between the sighting location at Conway and the MADAR site at Keene it would explain the distance factor and the numbers on the MADAR's printout. If the entry had occurred at 21:56:18 it would explain the magnetometer spike of 7.5 milligaus, then the idling down during the hover mode reported.
