- Almont, Michigan A Huge Craft Right Over Our Driveway
- Humming Sound
- Date: Fall of 1990.
- Time: Approx: 8:00 p.m.
- I did report this about 2 years ago to Larry Hatch, I'm
not sure why I waited so long but for some reason it really started to
occupy my thoughts. We had several emails about it and he seemed very interested,
he eventually referred me to someone from the Michigan Mutual UFO Network,
he emailed me a few times and that was it. To tell you the truth I just
felt better telling someone that had an interest in it, but I'm not sure
if the guy either believed me, or just wasn't interested. I will give you
a brief summery, to me this was the most unusual event in my life and I
still think about it daily.
- It was the fall of 1990, yes, 16 years ago! I was in
my home in Almont, MI. That time of year it gets dark quite early, it must
of been around 8:00 p.m., "the times are now just an approximation".
My son, who at the time was around 12 came running in the house saying
there was a UFO right outside our house. Let me add at this point I was
not one that believed in UFOs. I went outside and my son pointed south
and upwards and said look! The funny thing was at first I didn't see anything,
but I did notice it was unusually dark, then I noticed a very dim light,
I suddenly realized that the reason it was so dark was that there was a
huge craft right over our driveway.
- It was at tree level and was moving north and a very
slow pace, "approximately a slow walking speed". There was a
very distinct humming, exactly like a large transformers hums, there was
a very dull light in the middle and as it traveled down or driveway I made
out a row of windows around the craft, the windows looked very large. I
remember walking down the driveway with my son, then the next thing I remember
is standing out in the field north of my house still looking at the UFO,
when suddenly it went from approximately 90 or 100 ft straight up in the
sky to where it was a pinpoint of light. It just looked like another star.
This happened in under a second. We continued to watch it for quite awhile
when it took off in a northwesterly direction like a meteor and was gone
in a second. There are allot of things I can describe if your interested,
but this is the basic part.
- I don't feel like I was abducted, but I honestly do not
remember how I got from my driveway and then in the field. I ask my son
about it and he remembers things the way I do, but what I find unusual
is that 1. I didn't really focus on it that much after the initial day
it happened until a few years ago. 2. My son doesn't seem as interested
as I am, even though he is a very intelligent guy. I was a flight simulator
instructor in the air force and I have allot of knowledge regarding aircraft.
This will always go down as the most bizarre day in my life. By the way,
it seemed like I was being watched by someone in the window, but it was
like you could only make out a shadow. I am now fascinated by UFO's and
I know that there out there. Please, if you have any more questions feel
free to ask. Almont is about 20 SE of Brown City. I have never seen another
unusual craft. This was defiantly a UFO, there is no other explanation
for it, I am the type of guy that checks his facts, there is nothing on
our planet that I am aware of that could do what I saw! The pilots would
be dead just from the G forces.
- It surprises me that there have been so many incidences
in that area and I never heard about it. From my house to the field was
approximately 1000 feet, " you would think that with what was going
on, I would remember that sort of distance". I am not really concerned
weather anyone believes me or not, unless it is someone that is suppose
to investigate this sort of thing. They really need to have an open mind
and check the facts. The last few years I have gotten increasingly interested
in this subject and there have only been a few incidences that I have read
about where people have been as close as I was. I guess I am just intrigued.
It really fascinates me!
- I was so close, 90 ft. The funny thing about it was I
didn't feel threatened, In a weird way I felt like it was something from
our future, as bizarre as that sounds. I feel that we need to have confidence
in our instincts, I felt like I was on display and really being watched.
One thing I didn't mention and to this day I am not sure why I didn't act,
is that I am a professional photographer. What a dummy! the shot of a life
time and I didn't even think about it. This is another thing I cant explain,
I take my cameras everywhere with me. The first ten years, I would occasionally
ask my son if he remembered everything about that night and he would say
yes, but not really want to talk about it. It seemed like more of a dream.
WHY? Neither my son or I am the type of person not to act on something
so significant, an event of a life time .Another factor about that night
was the route the craft was traveling, right down my driveway. My power
lines go right down the drive and sometime that winter I had to call Edison
out, they told me that the wires were completely bare" no insulation
at all", and had to replace them, including the transformer. I am
not sure if it relates, but I have read stories about these craft using

- Near Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia Two Elongated
Box Shaped Objects
- Date: October 24, 1997
- Time: 315:00 hrs Atlantic Daylight Savings Time.
- Location of Sighting: near Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova
- Number of witnesses: 1
- Number of objects: 1 ?
- Shape of objects: Two elongated box shaped objects with
something that was connecting them looking like the letter H.
- Full Description of event/sighting: It was on a mild
afternoon of Friday, October 24, 1997 at about 15:00 hours. Atlantic Daylight
Savings Time (19:00 hours G.M.T.) when suddenly something caught my eye,
right over the right to centre of paved highway on Route #357, just over
the tree line gliding silently, making no audible noise. It
was "not" an airplane, and Halifax International Airport
is not a long way away, estimated to be about 30 kilometres away, as the
crow flies, from where I was on this afternoon.
- Prior to the sighting, the afternoon started out as any
other normal day. I decided to take my son who had just turned four, only
a month prior to this, and he wanted me to take him to the little park
near the arena in Musquodoboit Harbour, where there are swings, teeter
totters, monkey bars and slides. We spent about a half hour at the park,
where he had a great time on the swings and slides. After we left the
park, at about 2:30 p.m., we set out to drive North on Route #357 to get
some water at a fresh spring that percolates from the underground fed spring, and
has a generous amount of fresh water supply that is located about 12 kilometres
north of Musquodoboit Harbour. On our way there, we stopped next to
a large Stillwater along the Musquodoboit River, and I showed my son how
to skip flat rocks over water. He attempted to try, but because of his
age, he did not do too well that day, but gave it a great effort in trying.
He was having fun, and as long as he was having fun, so was I. I remember
this day clearly, as this day is the same day as my mother's birthday,
but we were going to go down and see her the next day, as this was on a
- After leaving the Stillwater where the Musquodoboit River
runs right along side the paved road, we continued driving north where
the community sort of stops and the houses built thin out, and there is
the odd cottage that was built along this highway. There are many side
roads to wood lots and lakes, and this area has many fresh water lakes
peppered all along the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.
- Approximately, 8 12 kilometres from where Route #357
starts north from the intersection of Highway 7 in Musquodoboit Harbour,
something caught my eye moving very slowly across the tree line ahead. I
quickly pulled over to the shoulder of the road, and got out to get a better
look. What I seen did not make sense!
- This was no airplane. I never saw anything quite
like it. It was box shaped, long and tapered on the front and there
was another one, right beside it. Between the two box shaped crafts, there
was a tunnel like thing joining the two long fuselages; and from my vantage
point, it looked like the letter "H". I would say that the altitude
of this thing was no more than two hundred feet high, and only about 300
feet north of where I stood, slowly moving in an easterly direction. The
mid section of this fuselage had these ribbons like things hanging down
from it. I had my 4 year old son with me and I started getting a bit nervous,
as I was not sure what I was seeing and I feared for his safety. I told
him to stay seated and after watching this thing for about 40 seconds to
perhaps a minute at the longest, it disappeared out of site blocked out
by the tree line.
- To this day, I don't know what it is that I seen. It
was large, based on the surroundings, and width of highway, and with my
working background in Land Surveying and often using triangulation to determine
approximate distances, I would estimate the length of this craft to be
about 180 to 200 ft long and between 40 to 50 ft between the two fuselages.
There were no wings that I could see, and the sky had scattered clouds
and sunshine. I seem to recall what appeared to be a greenish mist around
this thing before it disappeared from the tree line. It made no noise,
and glided slowly, guesstimate at about 5 knots more or less. I recall
getting back in the truck and driving up the road a bit further where there
was a turn in the road to see if I could get another glimpse of this thing,
but I could not find it any longer. I recall looking to the Northwest
and seeing what appeared to be a Dash 8 plane going in a NW direction toward
Halifax International Airport which was not too far away. I know that
my mind could certainly make out the planes that I am familiar with that
fly in and out of Halifax Airport. What I seen a few minutes previously,
was not an airplane. It was not a helicopter, and had no wings or propeller
blades that I could see, and it was silent, so what was propelling it.
- When I got home, I told my wife about it and told some
of my friends, but I did not call any authorities and did not tell too
many people about it, outside of my immediate family and friends. When
telling my sister in-law about it a few days later after I saw this thing,
she mentioned that a number of people reported seeing strange lights in
the sky further down the Eastern Shore during the night time hours that
same week, and apparently it went on for a few days. There were I believe
some military (navy) exercises for NATO forces doing beach landings that
same year, but do not remember if it was during the same time I had my
sighting or not.
- It was years later when I went into the Casebooks form,
another member there urged me to post my sighting and tell others about
it. I guess that I waited for almost 8 years before telling others about
it, as I feared ridicule and did not want the media to come hounding me,
as the only thing that I have, is the sighting etched in my memory and
can not show any other supportive evidence to collaborate my story. It
basically amounts to my word and if others want to choose to believe or
disbelieve it. But I know what I saw, and no one can ever change my mind;
it was something flying in the air that I have never seen before or since.
In doing some online investigations on looking for others who have seen
similar craft, there are possibly sightings in Ireland and another in Quebec,
Canada. One thing that I would not be able to answer, was it an earth
based craft, or something from outer space. I don't think that I could
ever answer that question, but I do know, it was not a standard type aircraft
that normally flies in our skies, and I have never seen anything like it
before that day, or since that day.

craft, please get in touch with me by messaging, Easternbluestar on <http://aliennation2.conforums.com/index.cgi>http://aliennation2.conforums.com/index.cgi
- Respectfully submitted.
- Thank you to the witness for the excellent written report.
- Pune, Maharashtra, India An Orange Colored Bright Object
- Date: 04 or 05/2002 ?
- Time: Just after 2:00 a.m.
- Location of Sighting: Pune, Maharashtra, India.
- Number of witnesses: 1
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: Round.
- Full Description of event/sighting: I was sleeping on
the terrace of the building in which we were staying. It must have been
a little over 2:00 a.m. in the morning. I was just lying down face
up to the sky, admiring the bright stars and the constellations.
- It was then that I spotted this orange colored bright
object, it was round and not very large, actually it was pretty small,
about the size of a cricket ball. But the smallness of it's size maybe
attributed to the fact that it was very high up in the sky. I spotted it
when it was about 50 - 60 degrees from the horizon moving slowly towards
the zenith. It seemed to be traveling with a constant speed up until it
reached the zenith. no sooner it reached the zenith, it made a sudden 90
degree turn to my left and traveled really fast, with maybe 3 - 4 times
the speed with which it was traveling when I first sighted it. The
whole episode lasted maybe 50 to 60 seconds.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania Stationary Object With Lights
- Date: Approx: 2004
- Time: Approx: 8:00 p.m.
- Greetings, About 3 years ago, my brother and I were driving
just above Mechanicsburg, PA on the Carlisle Pike approximately 8:00 p.m.,
when we saw some odd looking lights in the sky. He exclaimed, "What
is that?" almost simultaneously with me. We were in heavy traffic
and he had to turn (left onto route 114) so I rolled the window down and
stuck my head out to see it. I laughed and told him, "Well it's certainly
not a plane, because it just parked." That is to say, the object with
the lights which had been moving fairly quickly, was now stationary. He
laughed too, because we're becoming used to such sightings, and we continued
on our way, as there was no place to pull over for a better look.
- Visibility was low as we were driving through a lot of
traffic on a densely populated road. No other vehicles seemed to notice
it. I might add that my brother is extremely observant, and will pick up
anything out of the ordinary (as well as the ordinary). Part of our reaction
came from that 'feeling' one gets around such anomalies, which leads me
to believe that there is an additional element to these sightings beyond
the pure physical.
- I think the 'feeling' element bears closer scrutiny.
- Thank you to the witness for their report.
- Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania A Light Above Witness
- Date: April 2007
- Time: Approx: 11:30 p.m.
- Just to mention one more experience of interest (there
have been a number), four months ago I was sitting where I'm sitting now,
typing this, in my business' warehouse at 11:30 p.m. and suddenly got very
uncomfortable. As I tried to ignore it, the feeling increased. So I went
down the steps and opened the door and looked around. It was an overcast
night and just slightly chilly. I looked up, and there was a light looking
for all the world like a star directly above my head. I don't mind stars,
I rather like them, but on an overcast night they tend to look a bit suspicious.
So I watched it for a bit, maybe 10 minutes, then told it to go away (why
not? It's not like it can hear me, or can it?). I looked around the parking
lot then looked back up (about a 20 second break), and it was gone. So
was the odd feeling. I went back and continued my work inside. This was
at my business, (business location removed by HBCC UFO), Mechanicsburg,
PA. I don't recall the exact date. It's luminosity was slightly larger
than a planet would be with the naked eye.
- On another note, I haven't met too many people who haven't
had experiences like this. Thanks.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Muncie, Indiana Black Triangular Craft
- Date: June 20, 2007
- Time: Approx: 10:30 p.m.
- Location of Sighting: Muncie.
- Number of witnesses: 3
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: Triangle.
- Full Description of event/sighting: A large black
triangle with two bright white lights on the back points floated in
the sky in kind of a horseshoe like shape. Then it started floating in
a straight line to the right of us, it then paused, and the white lights
changed to orange and then the whole craft disappeared.
- Additional Information:
- Hi Brian, Thank you for getting back to me, now to answers
- 1. - I would estimate that I saw the craft for 3-5 minutes.
- 2. - There was absolutely no sound at all.
- 3. - The pond we were fishing at was right next to the
Muncie Airport. There were not any aircraft in the sky during the event,
we did notice a few commercial jets that night, at a much, much higher
altitude thought. I paid particular attention to these because I wanted
to compare the two different crafts. Anyway, nothing in the sky seemed
to notice the Black Triangle, before or afterwards.
- 4. - The weather was almost perfect, the sky was practically
clear, I know this because before the sighting I was relaxing and enjoying
the stars, Moon and Venus. The weather was so nice, that I was wanting
to stay and fish until late that night.
- 5. - I don't feel comfortable estimating an altitude
because I don't really know much about it. I can tell you that the craft
seemed to be really low. Definitely not as high as the jets, probably more
along the range of where I think a small airplane would be flying.
- 6. - Again I don't feel comfortable estimating the size
either, I am no expert and don't want to be wrong. It was much bigger than
what a small airplane is. I know the size of it is what made me look up
in the first place, it was as if I could feel it going over me. Then I
noticed the lights.
- 7 . - Well, I am no artist but I tried to draw a rough
diagram. I know my picture is blue, but the triangle was black. But that
is basically what it looked like, in real life there were not any details
ion the craft either. It was almost as if it were trying to be camouflaged
with the darkness of the sky, but at the same time it had the brightest
white lights on the back of it. These lights were by far brighter than
anything else I have ever seen in the sky. Also the lights turned orange
right before it disappeared.
- 8. - Anything else, well, I can say I was mesmerized
by the way the craft floated overhead without any sound. I must have screamed,
"Oh My God" at least a hundred times. And the way that it lit
up to orange lights and disappeared is what really let me know this thing
was out of the ordinary. After seeing it, I sat at the pond for a few moments
then I had my friends take me home because I was kind of creeped out by
- If you would like to know anything else, please let me
know. I have kind of become obsessed about it since then and I am quite
interested in learning more about it.

- Vaudreuil, Quebec A Strange Light Emanating From A
Cloud Changing Color
- Date: June 30, 2007
- Time: 11:30 p.m.
- Location of Sighting: Back of my house looking southeast.
- Number of witnesses: 2
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: Roundish cloud.
- Full Description of event/sighting: I want to report
an unidentified aerial phenomenon. On June 30 ,07 I witnessed along with
a friend a very strange light emanating from a cloud near my house in Vaudreuil,
Quebec within a few kms from Montreal.
- First let me start by saying I am very experienced with
auroras (been tracking them for years) I am also an amateur astronomer,
I have experience with aircraft and flight and have a sound knowledge of
weather. What I saw along with my friend that night I cannot explain. I
ruled out lights from a plane, fireworks, auroras, lightning and static
- It was around 11:30 pm, we just finished looking at the
moon through my telescope and I was looking out at the night sky when I
saw this cloud southeast from my home, it looked close and had just been
over the house so I know it was a low cloud by the speed it was travelling.
I thought it was pretty against the light of the almost full moon. All
of a sudden, the cloud turned red with a little orange tint then pulsed
to blue and then changed to green. It lit up the whole cloud telling me
that whatever was creating this light was big. The light lasted about 4
seconds and turned off. I then yelled to my friend to come see what I just
saw and miraculously the light re-appeared just in time for her to see
it. The second view also lasted about 4 seconds and pulsed from red with
orange tint to blue to green almost mechanically. Having seen it twice
and having the same light pattern rules out a natural phenomenon.
- I have been pondering coming forward for a while now
but decided it was the right thing to do.
- Thank you to the witness for the very interesting report.
- Kelowna, British Columbia Cylinder Shaped Craft Entirely
- Date: July 2, 2007
- Time: Approx: 11:00 p.m.
- Hello Mr. Vike My name is (full name removed). I live
on (removed) Rd. Kelowna. On Monday night I was sitting
on my front steps talking to my friend on the phone and saw something
strange in the sky as well. This also may confirm the stories that
my friend read in Fridays paper. Please fell free to call my at my home,
so we can discuss this in better detail. Thank you for your time.
- Brian Vike telephoned the witness on July 10,
2007 to see what other information I might be able to gather. Also HBCC
UFO Research did delete all the personal information for this witness.
- The witness tells me she had arrived home from a friends
place and noticed another friend had left a message for her to call. The
lady took her telephone outside as she was returning the call, plus having
a cigarette. As the two friends talked on the phone the witness noticed
a long cylinder shaped light. Her first thoughts were that she was just
seeing an airplane, as she is close to where the flights fly directly overhead,
but the woman went on to say, the object was a little odd looking as it
wasn't exactly on the normal flight path. Plus there were not any
of the normal NAV lights on this object. The entire craft was fully
lit up. After approximately 3 or 4 minutes of viewing time
it was gone, the witness said it was like someone turned off the light
switch. (we are not sure if the craft moved quickly away from it's location,
or with the lights out and due to the darkness the object just wasn't visible)
- The object was stationary and not a sound was heard coming
from it. It also wasn't sitting at a high altitude, lower than a small
Cessna would fly at. Rather low she mentioned and there were also no flashing
or blinking lights on it at all.
- The lady mentioned to her friend on the telephone that
possibly she may have just been witness to a UFO sighting. Both kidded
around about what was seen and talked for a while longer then hung up.
- On July 6, 2007 the witness gets a phone call from the
same friend informing her about an newspaper article on UFO sightings that
was reported in the local Kelowna newspaper. (Kelowna Capital News).
This is when the lady decided to write an email to me asking if I would

- Large Round Craft Hovers For An Hour Over Okanagan
Lake (Kelowna) British Columbia
- Date: July 2, 2007
- Time: 2:00 a.m.
- HBCC UFO Research Note: A lady must have called the Kelowna
Capital News to request my phone number as the witness called me up and
explained what it was she witnessed over Okanagan Lake. The lady said she
saw the same UFO twice over a weeks time period.
- The first sighting of the craft was on Monday June 25,
2007 and again on the evening everyone else witnessed the unusual UFO event,
which would have been July 2, 2007.
- The witness said she was awake and got up at 2:00
a.m. and watched the craft for approximately one hour. The object
was hovering, she said it did not move from it's position over top of the
lake. There were a string of lights that went around the bottom part
of the object and as she watched, the bottom lights would fade out and
lights at the top of the craft came on, still appearing to circle the object.
Also the top portion of the craft seemed to be lit up. The woman also stated
that beams of light would shoot out from the top of the UFO and also
from the bottom. Finally after roughly the hour had passed by, the craft
shot up quickly and was gone and out of sight.
- She reports that not a sound was heard coming from it.
The lady lives on lake frontage and had an amazing view of the event. The
object was low and again stationary over the water. (not touching the water
at anytime) The witness said it appeared to be looking for something,
or that is the impression she got from observing the event.

- Sighting Over Kelowna, British Columbia A White Globe
- Posted: July 9, 2007
- Date: N/A (2007)
- Time: N/A
- I was working with my wife and kids in my father-in-law's
garden when I heard a plane passing over head. The plane left a long vapor
trail, which I pointed out to my son. Just above the vapor trail, I spotted
a white globe and brought it to my wife's and father-in-law's attention.
At first we thought it was moving, but then realized the clouds were slowly
heading north. The globe did not seem to move, and was not growing smaller,
ruling out an errant balloon. It might have been a weather balloon, given
the light colour, but after watching it for fifteen minutes or so, it's
location in the sky did not seem to change. Not overly exciting, but certainly
- Thank you to the witness for the report. Due to the sighting
report coming in through the website submissions I have no idea who the
person is who reported the sighting, and no way to contact the person.
If the person reporting this sighting would please drop me, Brian Vike
a quick email I would like to know the date and time of the sighting, also
ask a few simple question. Brian Vike - <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>email@example.com

- Date: July 9, 2007
- Time: 2:04 p.m. - Date stamp on picture. (date
given in report was approx: 5:00 p.m.)
- Hi Brian:
- Not sure if these photos are similar to the sighting
you have posted and that were reported in the local news. I photographed
this unusual 'thing' yesterday (Monday) afternoon about 5:00 p.m. over
the Rutland area. It was definately unusual and did appear to change shape,
direction, and altitude prior to disappearing.
- Hope this may be of help and I would definitely be interested
in knowing if this is similar to what has been reported.
- Thanks and have a great day.
