Synopsis: In late July of 1999, at approximately 0330 hours, the witness of this investigation was camping on a hilltop near Buffalo, Missouri (Ozark Mountains). While keeping warm around the campfire, the witness saw an disk-shaped glowing UFO “fire orange” in color. The UFO, according to the witness, was silent and hovered in the area for 45 minutes. The UFO moved slowly from East to West until it was no longer in sight.
Evidence Submitted: A sketch of the UFO.
Initial Action: This UFO investigation was opened as an FB1, a fly-by of a UFO that traveled in a straight line across the sky.
Investigation and Findings: The investigators interviewed the witness of this investigation and it is the opinion of the lead investigator the witness was sincere and credible. Several indices checks on open-source websites, in particular MUFON/NUFORC, provided some information that showed similarities with this UFO sighting. However, because the sighting took place nearly 13 years ago at a remote location, the investigators could not find a sufficient amount of relevant information to identify the object. The investigation, therefore, was subsequently closed as unresolved and unidentified.
Object Details: Unidentified
