'Heel-Shaped' UFO With Lights Witnessed In Ohio
By Kenny Young <>
Location: Ironton, Ohio [Lawrence County]
Date: July 8, 2000 - 5:32 am
On July 8, 2000, a security guard working in Ironton, Ohio sought to report a UFO sighting by means of E-mail notification. Through internet correspondence he furnished a telephone number for a follow-up interview. Enclosed below are the details of the sighting report.
While on-duty at his place of employment near Third Street South [close to Route 52] in Ironton, Ohio at approximately 5:32 a.m. Saturday morning, July 8, 2000, the security officer sitting in a shack caught a glimpse of something in the corner of his eye. He then looked at an object which appeared from the clear western skies, initially thinking it to be a buzzard or a bird. Upon noticing that the object did not make maneuvers like a bird, the security guard walked out into the field to get a better look at it.
The UFO, seen clearly in the daylight skies, was reportedly shaped like the sole of a shoe. The guard informed that the object appeared to be colored like rustic old iron, and looked like a shoebox-shaped object of some sort of old rusted metal or iron that was rounded at both ends.
The rustic colored object made absolutely no noise as it continued overhead at an estimated 10 to 15,000 foot elevation, going perfectly straight. From his perspective, the security guard said the unidentified flying object was much larger than a routine aircraft seen at that same estimated height. The guard stressed, however, that this object seemed to be traveling much lower than conventional air traffic. "It was low enough that I should have heard some noise," he said.
The security guard said that the UFO had a solid yellowish orange non-blinking light around the exterior of it, best described as a a circle with neon lighting all around it. There were also two additional lights on the back of the object.
The claimant works from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and has never previously seen a UFO. "I've always been skeptical about UFOs, this is the first time I'd ever seen anything like this," he said.
During the time of the sighting, there was no traffic on the road. The object continued on its path to the east, headed toward Kenova, West Virginia. Foreman thought about calling the police, but elected not to and informed his sergeant instead.
The claimant is a Mr. Claude Foreman, a Kentucky resident, and was interviewed by telephone on Tuesday, July 18, 2000. Mr. Foreman gave permission to release his name in this report, but understandably requested that the location of his employment not be referenced. This researcher views him as a trustworthy and reliable eyewitness.
