Those who have been
following my reports here know that I try to find sightings that last more than
a minute. Anything less is open to misinterpretation. Mundane and terrestrial
objects can appear strange in a sighting that lasts seconds. If the witness has
a longer opportunity to observe the UFO, the better the chances it was
something truly strange. Dr. J. Allen Hynek made a similar observation.
On December 18 of last
year, the witness in Kelso, Washington, reported watching a disk-shaped UFO for
thirty seconds. The UFO was black, moving smoothly from side to side and then
flashed away. The witness said it was about six hundred feet in the air and
that it was traveling at five hundred miles an hour. I will caution that these
estimates are probably not as accurate as they could be.
According to the report
on the National UFO Reporting Center website, the witness took a photograph
that provided a second chain of evidence. The UFO is disk shaped, black, but is
seen through the branches of a tree and overhead wires.

There is a third chain
of evidence as well. According to the report, there were electromagnet effects
and that animals reacted to the UFO. This is an important case and I will
attempt to follow up on it.
The following, also
from the National UFO Reporting Center caught my attention for a couple of
reasons. First, however, I need to note that I worry about sightings that last
for hours, and I worry about repeaters, meaning here, that they saw the same
thing the next night.
The witness, in
Greensboro, NC said that beginning on December 12 of last year, he saw a
bright, intense light hovering above the tree line. It was moving right and
left with periods of hovering. He said it was pyramid shaped with what he
described as tentacles hanging from it. There was some sort of blackness around
the UFO, something like a cloud.
He wanted to get a
picture but said that his cell phone was dead. He did get another cell phone
but said the UFO wasn’t in focus. He couldn’t get a good picture of it.
He did say there was
another witness who was on her way to work, and she saw the same thing. And,
there was a report of animal reactions to the UFO.
In both these cases
from the last month, there were reports of EM effects or a cell phone failure
and reaction by animals. These extra points add some credibility to the
sighting. Both cases can be reviewed at the National UFO Reporting Center
website which can be found here:
