Jacksonville Florida One Big Bright Light
Date: 1947 or 1948
Message: In your report about 1940s you missed a big one, In the summer of 1947 or 1948 in Jacksonville Florida I was about 10 years old when my whole family saw one big bright light in the sky about 20 mile out at about 10,000 feet, and out of this real bright light three smaller bight lights came out and sat there for about a minute. Then they would shoot across the sky in different directions, I would say 20 miles from the starting point and they would come to a complete stop, and some times they would sit there for a little bit and shoot off into a different direction. All three of the smaller lights would move in this matter. The real bight light stayed in the same location, about a hour of this they returned to the big bright light and it just disappeared.
This happen about 3 or 4 days in a row, in the same location in the sky. Approx: half the city called in to report this action they saw in the sky and the newspaper put a story in the paper about these lights because so many people saw them across the city. Alot of people thought that is was going to be the end of the world.
The reason I can tell the different in altitude and distance is because I am a pilot, with lots of hours of flight time in my own aircraft, this was one time in my life that scared me and my whole family.
If I knew how to get the record from the newspaper, I sure I could download it for you because after three days they didn't say another word about it. The military said they had no aircraft in the air at that time. These lights were traveling at over approx: 10,000 mile a hour or more and they didn't make a sound. At the time they were training pilots in PBYs at a Navy Base and you could hear them 30 miles away, that's how much noise they made. So it was not any air plane, the jet aircraft was not in production at that time and they could not fly at that speed even if there were. This is the only UFO experience that I have had in my life time.. and I can assure you that they are out there.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
Annapolis, Maryland Triangular Stationary Lights
Date: Summer of 1971
Time: 8:30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular
Full Description of event/sighting: My friend and I were walking down the street of our neighborhood. We both saw these lights up in the sky which were just stationary in the shape of a triangle. Three lights. We kept walking....not paying much attention to it, but as we started talking about what it was we saw, there seemed to be a discrepancy in what she saw and I
saw. So we turned around to check it out again. We had to walk back to almost the exact spot where we were, to really see it, and as we stood there looking up at it, it began to spin. It just hovered, which really freaked us out because there was absolutely No sound coming from it. And as we stood there it just started moving off at a pretty rapid rate of speed.
Never a sound was made from it. It seemed so close when we first saw it, but I don't ever remember seeing anything but the 3 lights in the triangular shape. I always knew it was not of our world, but of course nobody else would believe that. I don't know what kind of craft, even today, is able to just hover without any engine noise. Do you? I was only 14 years old at the
time, but I'll never forget it.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
North East Lincs, England Sphere
Date: October 1994
Time: Approx: 6:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Over fords farm reading England.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Sphere
Full Description of event/sighting: round sphere bright luminous orange with vein like marks throughout about the size of a house traveling in a straight line across the sky i was only a short distance away waiting for a bus . I watched the object for about 20 seconds it wasn't moving very fast but then it began to ascend at an angle of about 60 degrees and continued to ascend till it disappeared from view. I didn't report the event because there was only myself as a witness but from that time I have been a firm believer in these objects. The object I saw was impossible for it to have been made by humans at the present time I could tell this from the way it was glowing and by its shape and size and the way it ascended into the sky. This is a true account.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Rural Roy, Washington, (Puget Sound area sighting)
Date: 1998 (maybe 1997)
Time: Between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangle, very large.
Full Description of event/sighting: In the year 1998 (maybe 1997) I lived in a rural farming area (5 miles east of the city of Roy) about 20 miles south of Tacoma, Washington. Our ranch was directly under the McChord AFB flight line landing zone and a few miles south of the Ft. Lewis training area. Very common was all sorts of aircraft flying over the house between 500 and 1500 feet. This particular evening was cool and clear. I was in the house with my kids when my now ex-wife was outside feeding the horses when she began pounding the living room window so hard I thought she would break it. She yelled at me to come out side. When I did, I observed overhead and slightly to the north and northbound an almost silent craft. As I recall now, I remember hearing a hum.
What I distinctly recall is the back side had at least two lighted cylindrical ports. They appeared to be exhaust ports. Both were glowing yellowish and "dripping" some sort of burning flame, not unlike plastic drips as it burns. The drips fell from the craft only a few feet and extinguished. What my ex told me was that the craft was a very large triangle, several football fields large, much larger then the common large McChord aircraft. The craft had numerous windows on it that emitted light as if interior lights were on. The craft came from the west, just above treetop level, floated to directly above our house and then made a right angle LEFT turn, over our house and then proceeded north. The craft was moving slower then the slowest aircraft we have ever seen and we had seen probably thousands over the past approximate 10 years that we lived there. This craft was NOTHING like we have ever seen or heard and moved like NOTHING we have ever seen or heard. We were not the only ones to see it but we were the only ones who reported being within 500 feet of it. The craft proceeded north over Tacoma where many of our friends reported seeing it from several miles away. It continued north thru the Puget Sound area to north of Seattle.
The local news showed the footage of the crafts lights obtained from the Space Needle. Official response was that it was falling space debris. The military had no reasonable response although many reported the military helicopters firing up and taking chase. As I recall we heard the copters firing up from our house, others saw them flying after it. Later reports came out saying that it had been earlier seen in Oregon and as I recall California and then as far north as Canada. I did report it to one of the internet UFO reporting sites. At the time I was a Tacoma police officer, my ex wife ran our horse breeding ranch. Its suspicious that it purposely flew in the flight line for McChord AFB which makes me think its some top secret government project. But then why would it fly over heavily populated areas and allow itself to be recorded by the Space Cam on top of the Space Needle?
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Edmonton, Alberta "Classic" Flying Saucer
Date: Approx: March 2004
Time: 4:00 p.m.
I just found your email address on saying to submit UFO reports to you. I didn't really know who exactly to report this to, so you're my best bet so far. As I was driving in south Edmonton earlier this year (probably around March), I saw an absolutely huge UFO in the sky during broad daylight hours. It was obviously some type of metallic structure, and matched most other UFO descriptions. It was probably about 500 feet in the air and 300 feet in front of me, moving very slowly and changing it's direction a lot as if it were lost or scanning the ground looking for something. I tried to follow it but it disappeared into thin air after about 10 or 15 seconds after I spotted it. This is the first time I've ever seen
something like this, I'm not crazy, I know what I saw.
Additional Information:
Okay, it was a while ago, and I never wrote it down, but I'll give you all of the info I am sure about.
Date : Approx March 2004
Weather : Sunny day with scattered clouds (at about 4:00 p.m. because I was driving a friend home)
Sky Location : I was driving East and it was probably about 60 or 70 degrees upwards, just enough that I had to make an effort to bend my neck to see it.
Description: It looked like the "classic" flying saucer (two plates pressed together), it was silver/grey, obviously metallic, probably about 100-150 feet in diameter (I'm not too sure), & no sound.
Airports: There is the Edmonton International Airport probably about 45 km away from where I was, but this was not a plane. No nearby military bases.
Extra (about lost/scanning): Like I said, it was moving back and forth across the sky, stopping, and moving up and down, all very slowly. I was actually very surprised to see it being absent on the 6:00 news. I don't know why, but as I watched it, it reminded me of a person looking for a contact lens on the ground (slowly looking around and scanning areas one at a time). I'm sorry I can't elaborate on that more, but that's the closest thing I could compare the way in which it was acting.
I hope any of this can be useful to you. Thank you for taking these reports by the way, I'm glad someone takes me seriously.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Peterborough, Ontario Triangular Craft
Date: July 5, 2004
Time: 4:00 a.m.
In the early morning of July 5 2004 at approximately 4:00 a.m at Peterborough Ontario Canada my cousin and myself observed a fast moving object overhead and then it disappear over an area called Little lake. A few moments later we observed a triangle of three lights (bright). We thought it was just the stars at first but then the lights we thought were stars began to move, it then disappeared back towards Little Lake (easterly direction) Now fast forward 2 days at approximately 3.30 a.m. on Lafayette Ave in Peterborough.
Earlier in the evening I had observed a bright streak in the sky toward the east so I was watching the eastern sky close.
All of a sudden I observed 2 small bright fast moving objects moving to the east. Very fast I might add so here I'm watching towards the east not paying attention directly overhead. All of a sudden everything just seemed to get real quiet. Eerie quiet.
I'm looking east then I just get these creepy feeling that something was watching me, you know what I mean. I turned and looked down the street towards the General Electric plant (900 feet approximately ) I swear I couldn't hear the background noises you usually hear traffic dogs etc.
So now I notice the glow from the street light seemed to be changing color on the cars on the street. Then I look up. My god there it is coming right over the house. This thing is massive !
I swear I could have hit it with a sling shot. So its kind of slowly idling east, at like I don't know 5 kmish maybe. The craft stops, then starts going sideways now towards the GE plant, it seemed as wide as the distance between GE and our house. Now I don't know much about this stuff but I swear this is one evil looking outfit with 3 lights (brownish orange very dim ) One at each point of the triangle not that it is pointed but at the ends. The ends are rounded off, I will send a little drawing I made. It seems to be a blue black color but flat no shine, almost a rough finish, a circular dome dead center of the bottom in a hexagon type enclosure. No light or glowing color on this dome. This is set in an indented area that almost had the look of the surface of a pool. I could now see the one side that appeared to have some kind of indentations
probably doors or some kind of hatch. It sat there for probably 3 minutes, but seemed like a lifetime.
Then it just moved so fast you couldn't even tell the direction it went. Anyway I have seen it twice since then but it was a
lot higher up. Probably 1500 feet.
Maybe its just me or maybe something else but I know they know I saw them. I don't think these guys are real friendly. I could just feel it. Anyway couple observations. Next day my neighbors Dodge Intrepids battery was completely zapped. He had to replace the alternator and battery the next day. His Olds wouldn't start either, the alternator and battery fried. His Name is (removed) and I'm sure he would verify that. My Camry's two month old Kenwood stereo fried. Rear light wiring fried. Battery was completely dead by 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon, so I recharged it and it came back to life. Still had problems with the wiring so I had it repaired at Russell Toyota in Peterborough 489 dollars...
One other thing I would like to add, there was the weak aroma of like a burnt transformer in the air for a few minutes after the craft left. I might add as well I went into the back yard and alley behind the house to get a good view of this thing because I couldn't see all three lights from the street because of its size.
Sighting Dates and times
July 5, 2004...4:00 a.m
July 7, 2004 - Close sighting as per sketches 3:30 a.m
July 17, 2004 - 1500 feet approximately details hard to see just shape and 3 light. Moved east then drifted towards G.E
August 26, 2004 - Triangle lights looked like brighter than usual stars moving east.
Additional Information:
Well the first object was moving very fast but slowing to some extent.
It was moving from the west towards the east and dropping till we lost site of it behind the buildings. It was an orangish object. Very bright !!
We would have been looking in a North to Northeast direction. I get mixed up with the directions. The altitude I would say when first in view was probably 5000 feet descending to 1000 feet, It came on what seemed to be an exact path of the triangle lights. The first triangular lights seemed to be a bit bigger and clearer but I had no idea until I saw the one over the house how big it was.
What I found out today is that General Electric here supposedly stopped making reactor parts years ago. But I found a site while searching that sheds some light on this <> I asked people what they do there at the plant and nobody seems to know. I have only lived here a while so I thought they might have been making fridges or something. At the gate to GE on Monaghan drive it seems really secure. This is a huge plant
I can see the plant right from my (removed) but that street it is on called Albert and is a half mile long and the plant runs the distance of the street. I guess there are only 700 workers in the plant now but it did employ upwards of 7000 at one time.
They make fuel pellets for the Candu Reactors but you can't find it on one single GE site anywhere..
About the time: It seemed like it was 3 minutes but when I came back in the house it was 5:17 by my computer. So one and a half hours passed roughly.
This thing was directly overhead but it sort of stopped then drifted towards the plant. What I mean by directly overhead (the front) I assume it was the front seemed directly over and inline with the driveway.
I had to go into the backyard, into the alley to see it all and that's when I got the feeling they knew I was there. Then I went running back out to the street and saw a girl running like heck towards the other street (Chamberlaine) It rotated slightly to its left as it drifted over the plant. I still get Goosebumps just thinking about it. The front moved till it was almost out past Jackson Ave. I'll see if I can do a picture over a map if I can find one.
Unusual sensations: Well other than being freaked out I seemed to have my hearing kind of muffled. Like I had a head cold sort of effect. A couple times I had the momentary feeling like I was lost or didn't know where I was
Weather: Its always been overcast, partly cloudy. But the sky seems to clear up just at the right time.
See what really scared the ba jezus out of me was that I was watching to the east looking for those lights to reappear and the thing kind of creeped up behind me. So I was really startled when I looked up so it was just moving dead slow at this point from the west.
Street lights: The reflections on the cars changed from the usual glow, to a more I guess orangish glow. I saw the shadows on the street change a bit so I knew there was something above me and I looked up and just thought, Oh my god, what the heck is that. I don't think anyone would have heard me scream if I did scream any way. Its like noise was being suppressed somehow. Like some kind of silence field around the thing and maybe I was in that field? Not sure.
Would be 3 cars I know of that had electrical screw ups the next day. I don't talk to a lot of people around here and the flood happened the next day, so 24 hours after the sighting everything was so crazy.
I sure had some weird dreams and stuff since this happened. I seem to really notice the shape in architecture and stuff. My wife says its like I've had some little psychic twinge switched on. Like I'll know the phone is going to ring before it does things like that.
Anyway here are some maps so you can get a feel for the layout of the area .The area in Grey is the GE Plant I tried to show where the Triangle stopped then moved sideways until it was over G.E. 2 of the maps are just for reference kind of.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

Williamson, New York Disk Shaped Craft
Date: August 17, 2004
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Disk shaped.
Full Description of event/sighting: My son just ran inside to tell me he saw a disk shaped object with a green light on top and some kind of blue illumination under. The sky was dark but not black yet. I asked him how he could see both top and bottom. He says it was stationary in the sky, in a tilted position. It was thin. He compared it to a CD. It seemed metallic.
Then it flew at great speed (he called it superextraterrestrial speed) towards east. There's a ridge over there so he lost it behind the trees.
I asked him to extend his arm and tell me if it was bigger than his thumb and he said it was as big as his 2 thumbs together.
Additional Information:
Hi Brian!
My son just saw a UFO! I had him draw it because I thought he could have seen a meteor or something. Saucer shaped, green light on top, blue light on bottom. I'll go fill a report on the site. He said the bluish light under made it look rusty colour.
I missed it because hubby wouldn't come with me outside to look at the stars!
I'll try to see if someone else saw it around here. Pilots approaching. Rochester airport must have seen it!
1. - Clear sky, no clouds, no haze, no rain. Crescent moon. It wasn't quite night yet. Dark sky but not totally night. I went outside right after he came in, to get a visual description of the trajectory and the sky was clear.
2. - South of our house. It means south of Lake Ontario. Our house is about 4 to 5 miles south of the lake. We are roughly 35 miles east of Rochester.
3. - It shot straight towards East. No wobbling, no zig-zag, straight path. It was stationary in the sky, tilted, then sort of leveled up and traveled towards east at great speed. He didn't see any spinning or other movement.
4. - There was no sound at all.
5. - It looked rusty red, reddish brown to him. Green light on top always on, not blinking. He says it's hard to describe. It didn't look like a green light you'd find on an airplane, like an electric light. It looked like a green marble of light, glowing. That's the best description he can give me. At first was tilted in a way that he saw the green dot of light on top and the blue illumination coming from under was seen as a corona of blue light around and it seemed to be all over under the craft when he saw it speed away.
6. - No physical sensation or other.
7. - We have a tree that's about 20-22 feet high and the craft seemed to be between 3 and 5 inches over it from his point of view, you know when you measure with your thumb and index finger. He was working on his bicycle and I measured he was roughly 85 feet from the tree. We have a big yard, 2 1/2 acres of land. But the craft was further down south, as he saw it. As wide as his two thumbs put together when extending his arms up. His thumbs are almost as big as an adult but a bit slender. He's short, 5'3". I wish I had gone out in the yard like I wanted to!!!! It was a hammock night!
8. - From the moment he noticed it, it stayed stationary for about 4 to 5 seconds. The whole sighting may have lasted 7 seconds. The ridge is only a few miles away and he lost sight of it when it flew past the ridge. And the ridge is not that high.
9. - Hard to tell. We can see airplanes approaching Rochester airport every night in this part of the sky. I asked him if it was longer than the airplanes we see in the sky doing their approach. He says about twice the length. He says it looked to be about same height as the airplanes we see approaching Rochester. There is also a very small airport in Williamson and it's near the ridge. I doubt it's manned at all times though. It's for people with small planes, people who fly for the fun of it.
Thank you to the witness for the great report.

Vernon, B.C. Strange Effect
Date: August 19 2004
Time: After midnight
Hi Brian
I have been reporting the globes that have been around Vernon since April. I became familiar with their behavior, and where they would be. There was usually four. Then there was only one after a three week lapse. I am out every night at the time I have seen their activity, but only the one has appeared once a week since July. Two weeks ago the one stopped over the airport in the clouds and flared three short times. This was different as I have seen them pulse and flare but not short sharp blasts of light. The globe is all light and my binoculars can't make out anything that could be called a vehicle. When it flares it
only increases in size equal to the light it emits. It does not morph into anything or display many lights. It is something covered in light and remains the size of a seed pearl.
Thursday night something really different happened. The sky over the airport had low clouds and heat haze from the ground. I looked to the spot where I have seen them appear over the airport. The globe flared and then really flared to blinding white. The different part is this. If I hadn't been sitting down I would have had to sit down. As it was I was set back in my chair.
I felt this light press through me. I did not lose time, or lapse in consciousness or feel fear.
A friend in Salmon Arm witnessed the same thing only she said she nearly fell over and the horses in the field all jumped. She was out at midnight looking for her cat. She said no noise, no explosion just pure white light that went to the back of her head. This is the first time I have felt a light force. A light force. Sounds kind of cool and it was.
Take care.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Terrace, B.C. Lights Traveling Across The Sky
Date: August 19, 2004
Time: Approx: 12:20 a.m.
Short sighting, I witnessed 5 lights, and each light separated into 3 more lights, each all in a horizontal fashion. There are 2 witnesses on the 19th of August 2004. The shortest UFO sighting I have ever seen. They were too far away to see any detail. The lights were traveling due west, I was standing on the Southside of Terrace when they flew almost overhead.
Additional Information:
The lights were seen at about 12:20........may be within 10 minutes of that either way. The sighting only lasted a few seconds on account of them moving so fast. There color was almost a florescent white, with a blue tinge to it. They were big enough to see that they weren't stars, but an aircraft can't maneuver side to side like that. The number is actually started with 5 , but then they split off into many other lights flying all parallel to one other. As for the weather, it was a perfectly
clear night.
Thank you to the witness for this report.
Manville, Alberta Giant Orange Ball Of Light
Date: August 29, 2004
Time: Approx: 2:30 a.m.
A phone call came in from a witness who was traveling on Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway). On August 29, 2004 at approx: 2:25 a.m. the fellow had pulled his vehicle off to the side of the road to stretch his legs as he had been on the road for sometime, he had been heading westbound. That part of the highway had four lanes and he had pulled over into a pull off area.
As he walked around and eventfully was getting back into the car to start his journey again, he noticed traveling from west to east a large, round/circular glowing orange object, which he first thought was a beautiful Autumn Moon. (this was the first thing that came to mind). He described it as being roughly one and a half time the size of a full moon. The sighting lasted for approx: 5 seconds and was seen low on the horizon. He also stated that is was heavily clouded over at that time and it had rained earlier. So the object was traveling below the cloud cover. There was no trail or tail following behind the object, also no sound was heard at all.
A Freightliner which was coming down the highway in his direction seemed to be slowing at a good rate and the witness figured that the driver had to have been observing the same object as he was because as soon as the object disappeared from sight the truck sped up again.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Parksville, B.C. Strange Cloud
Date: August 29, 2004
Time: 8:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 5
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Cloud
Full Description of event/sighting: I, and others, saw a dark cloud like form move from south to north at a height of +- 700 feet over the ocean between two points of land. My comment to others to attract their attention was" look at the moving cloud!" It was the size of 1/2 a cruise ship and moved rapidly across the horizon. It did not reappear from the island that it disappeared behind. The distance away could not be determined but is estimated to be around 6 miles as the points of land were +- 3 miles.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
