A Nevada witness at Las Vegas reported watching a ‘giant moth’ moving at a constant speed under 50 feet, according to testimony in Case 94461.

The witness was in a front yard at 4:15 a.m. on August 28, 2018.

“Directly across the street I 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,” the witness stated. “It was shaped like a giant moth. It was about three feet in diameter. It maintained a constant speed of about 20 mph. I could see the silhouette of it silently gliding in a straight path heading southwest for about 1,000 yards before losing sight of it, and it did not flap any wings. I have searched the Internet for night-flying insects or birds that may have fit the description of this thing, but there are none that size. It was a spooky thing to witness.”

Nevada MUFON State Director Sue Countiss closed this case as an Unknown-Other.

A Washington witness at Eatonville reported watching two Chinook helicopters apparently “escorting” three orange orbs in a tight formation, according to testimony in Case 94482.

The event occurred at 11:05 p.m. on August 27, 2018.

“I heard two helicopters flying over Eatonville and it sounded very low,” the witness stated. “But this sounded really loud and it shook the house. I ran outside and saw two Chinook helicopters in a staggered formation with an orange orb flying side-by-side with the first helicopter. The second helicopter was very close behind and it had the second orb between the first and second helicopter. The third orb was flying next to the second helicopter. They were all flying in a tight formation. As they flew over me, I could see the helicopter navigation strobe light flash and that’s when I saw the shape of the helicopter and I knew I was looking at a Chinook helicopter. I could see the blades rotating. The orbs looked reddish-orange in color and were a solid color. They flew over me and I watched them heading west until they disappeared. It looked as if the helicopters were escorting the orbs.”

Washington MUFON State Section Director Allen Thompson closed this case as an Unknown-Other.

A Nevada witness at Pahrump reported swerving around a “human-like entity with wings and no face” that landed in the travel lane ahead, according to testimony in Case 97499.

The witness was northbound along Highway 160 between mile markers 134 and 135 at 4:10 a.m. on August 27, 2018.

“I saw this thing land in front of my car in the street in my travel lane,” the witness stated. “I didn’t know what it was when I saw it and I still don’t. I don’t know how to feel about it. I have no answers. It was about 4:10 a.m. It was a clear sky. No wind. No clouds. I was a little behind my schedule, so I was going fast – 85 mph. I did have my bright lights on. This event lasted about four or five seconds. I had just finished a small snack. I was listening to some music and then suddenly this thing came from up high and landed in my travel lane on the street. Very tall, seven feet or more, very large wings, smoke gray in color. I couldn’t see any eyes. No face. As it was landing the wings were out to each side of it. Once it was on the ground, it wrapped its wings around itself as if it was bracing for an impact. The wings were wrapped around its front. It put its head down slightly and just stood there. It would not move as I approached it. The only thing I could think is, what is that? I cannot crash my car. I cannot hit this thing. It will destroy my car and put me in the hospital. So I said no and turned my wheel slightly to the left. I did this four times as I took my foot off the accelerator to slow my speed as I passed the thing. I did look in my rearview mirror, but it was too dark to see anything. I didn’t stop because I didn’t know what it was, and I didn’t want it to come after me. I just kept saying out loud, what was that, what was that, what was that? Over and over. Where did it come from? What is it? Its body was like a human. Its wings and arms were one unit. There was a car in front by about a half-mile and behind me by about a half-mile. I don’t know if anyone else saw it or not. I would like to know if anyone else has seen it. I look for it every day and wonder where it came from.”

Wisconsin witness reports hovering shape-changing UFO

A Wisconsin witness at Farmington reported watching a “reflective silver” object that seemed to change shape, according to testimony in Case 94322
.
The witness was driving northbound along Highway D about two miles south of Highway B just west of Farmington in Jefferson County at 2:30 p.m. on August 21, 2018.

“I observed what at first I thought was a drone,” the witness stated. “It at first appeared to be hovering, but as it became closer it seemed to be traversing in a north to southwest general direction. As it became closer it appeared to be a solid, reflective object, trapezoidal in shape with no indication of propellers or any drone features. The sun was to my rear left, so the object was very bright from reflection. The object slightly changed to a more of direct southerly path, and as it changed direction, the shape seemed to change, but still trapezoidal. It passed overhead and I tried to locate it in my rear-view mirror. Unable to see it, I pulled over immediately and tracked it traveling in a southern trajectory. There was no sound from it. And it did not appear shiny anymore, as it was now in between the sun and myself. I observed it until it was out of my sight, and from start to finish the entire event was barely 10 to 15 seconds. On my return travels following the same route, I measured the distance from where I first saw it to the point it was out of sight to be approximately one-quarter to one-third mile. The object was higher than the power lines, but underneath the cloud cover on a partly cloudy day. I stopped to take a picture of the clouds to try to reference the cloud height.”

Wisconsin MUFON State Director Zelia Edgar and Field Investigator Susan Birttnen closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.

British witness reports silent black triangle

A British witness at Port Talbot reported watching a silent, black triangular UFO moving overhead, according to testimony in Case 98200.

The witness and a friend were sitting in a garden on August 19, 2018.

“We noticed what we thought was a plane,” the witness stated, “with a light on each point heading directly towards us at approximately 200-300 feet, but as it got directly above us, we could clearly see this was not a plane or drone. It looked similar to a B-2 stealth bomber but more triangular in shape, flying in a reverse position and flying extremely slowly and dead silent. This took place at 10 p.m. and the camera on my phone hasn’t picked anything up. Another local had seen it a couple miles away from me, and he said he thought it was a drone when he first saw it, but when it got closer, he said it was too big and looked like nothing he had ever seen. There must be more witnesses, he said, as he was stuck in traffic when he noticed it and others stuck in the traffic must have witnessed it. He last saw it heading east over the Bristol Channel.”

British MUFON National Director Jack Turnbull closed this case as Information Only.

Missouri UFO described as cloaking itself

A Missouri witness at El Dorado Springs reported watching a saucer-shaped object “as blue as sky background” that crossed the sky just before a storm, according to testimony in Case 94262.

The sighting occurred at 8 p.m. on August 19, 2018.

“I saw the strange object while driving home from in-law’s house after a wall of tornado-producing storms passed through our town,” the witness stated. “Earlier, the tornado sirens and phone’s emergency system had alerted me that we were under a tornado warning. My fear of storms is compounded when I’m alone (husband at work), so my dog and I went to their place for shelter. A tornado popped up south of us, but we were fine. About 30-45 minutes after the storm had passed and the clouds were moving out, we headed home. On our short drive back, around 7:50 to 8 p.m. as the sun was about ready to wear out its welcome for the day, I spotted movement in the sky. It was a saucer-shaped object as though seen from the side, where the middle appeared fatter than either edge. It floated steadily high in the sky, moving approximately northeast, as though trailing after the tail of the storms. It was difficult to gauge the distance, due to there being little near it to use for scale or knowing how big the object was. I didn’t hear anything, like the distinct rumble of a helicopter or the engines of a plane, though my windows were up. Generally, if it were either machine, the distance would have been close enough to warrant some sound or vibration, regardless of window placement. It moved too slow and steady for it to be a plane. The color was the first thing that really struck me as strange, though. It was distinctly an object in the sky, but the color was as though it were reflecting or absorbing and mimicking the color of the sky around it. It was like an invisibility cloak, but with a clear border that indicates the presence of an object. Then the whole thing shone white. It was a quick gloss-over of the object, like it reflected the sunlight before disappearing behind something else, but there was nothing between it and the sun the whole time. Then it shone white again, and then back to its cloaked state. I thought it had to be something like a helicopter. The hospital in town gets them all the time, taking patients to a larger, better equipped facility outside of town. It flew in the air like a helicopter, steadily and smoothly. But there was no sound, no vibration, and I saw no blades. The shape was clearly like a classic UFO saucer (seen from the side). There were no lights or any other distinctive patterns or writing on it. I thought about pulling over to observe it better and to keep from being distracted while driving, but I thought, ‘Don’t be silly.’ I approached the stoplight and slowed down, hoping it would turn red so I could watch it some more. It did! I thought, ‘Could it be a balloon? A storm just rolled through, so maybe it let one loose somewhere?’ It was just too odd how it reflected the color of the sky and did the weird illumination at seemingly random intervals. It wasn’t a reflection of something in or near the car, because as I sat still, it still moved. I was curious and interested. But when the light turned green, I turned and kept moving. Once I got home, I stood outside and searched the sky in the place where I had seen it, but it was gone by then. I felt nothing differently, just piqued my natural curiosity, and the anomalous qualities of the object drew me to it. Had I not been already scanning the skies (as I do post-storms, looking for any more ominous clouds or admiring the scene of a stirred atmosphere), it would have blended in really well and escaped my attention. I looked up pictures of weather balloons, just in case, and what I saw on a cursory Google search was definitely not what I witnessed. I searched for helicopters in sky and the pictures confirmed my conviction that it was not a helicopter. I have no clue what it was, and it makes my insides ache to know that I’ll probably never know what this thing was.”

Missouri MUFON Field Investigator Britt Faaborg closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
