14-003-AN1 (Phoenix, AZ)

Date of Sighting: March 13 1997 

Time of Sighting: Evening, long after dark, I don’t remember the time.

Duration of Event: Going east on interstate 40…it remained visible / relative to our position until we had passed from the area.

Location of UFO: Interstate 40 east of Phoenix, Arizona

Shape of Object: Other (Explain Below)

UFO Report: My then husband and I were travelling east on interstate 40 and were east (I believe) of Phoenix on the evening of March 13, 1997. I only remembered the date because I wrote it down. I looked north across the desert and it looked liked huge stars on a V-shaped structure (very long) floating above ground and around the mountains. I observed it for as long as I could. My husband refused to even acknowledge it was there and thought I was nuts. They (the lights) just kept on floating, up and down, in unison, on this huge V-shaped apparatus, about 5, 6 on each side. I tried to count them. It would turn, left and right, up and down, as it needed to avoid the mountains. It seemed very low to the ground. There were other smaller blinking lights near it, which I assumed could have been helicopters. It was the strangest thing I’d ever seen. I still saw them as the minutes passed and I saw them relative and parallel to where we were on the highway for as long as we were in the area. It wasn’t until a year later, after I was home, and I kept hearing these reports and seeing on television about the “Phoenix Lights.” When they gave the date, I knew that’s what I had most likely seen. The official report that they were flares is nonsense. Flares don’t float in unison. They were bright like the stars, white lights, no trails of any kind on this most strange structure. I’d also like to report that after we got to the Giant Travel plaza just east of Albuquerque and stayed for the night, I woke up about 3:30 am on the morning of the 14th and went in to the plaza. I came out and wanted to see the comet at that time (I don’t remember which comet it was) through my binoculars. As I was observing it, two softly curved chevron-shaped objects appeared out of the north skies. They almost seemed halographic, translucent, and were a very pale blue. The flew southward. I couldn’t get a clear look through the bc’s no matter how I tried to adjust them. I would say they seemed about a 1/4-1/3 size of the moon in the sky at the time..

13-140-AN1 (San Francisco, California)

Date of Sighting: Summer of 1969 or 1970

Time of Sighting: Evening

Duration of Event: In total, approximately 30 minutes

Location of UFO: San Francisco, California, USA

Shape of Object: Saucer

UFO Report:  My friend, Rachel and I were sitting on the cement steps of a house that had burnt down on the small hill.

Rachel and I were talking when we noticed a strange light, moving erratically in the sky, across the San Bruno Mountains.  It would shoot straight up, stop suddenly (as the saying goes…stopping on a dime) and then shoot in a totally different direction.  The light kept up these movements for at least 5-10 minutes.  I remember saying to Rachel, “Look…..there’s an UFO”.  We watched its performance in awe until the UFO shot away.

We continued talking for quite some time (perhaps 30 minutes) after the experience when I had this over-whelming feeling that I needed to look up above me.  As I did, I saw a large, round disc, directly above Rachel and me.  It was so large, it obscured our view of anything else.  I felt if I raised my hand, I could touch it so I tried but it wasn’t as close as I had thought.  I noticed there were no marks, writing or seams on the disc.   It was completely smooth, burnt orange in color and totally silent.  I then heard Rachel start to scream.  At this time, unknown to us, both of our sisters, Jean and Yvonne and our friend, John, were on the street, in front of our house.  They heard our screams and thought we were being attacked. So they ran down the street and went behind the houses, only to be greeted with the sight of the burnt orange disc, hovering over Rachel and me.  I don’t really recall much else except all of a sudden, Jean, Yvonne and John were standing with us, underneath the disc.  Someone yelled for us to run and when I looked at Rachel, she was standing in place, running but not going anywhere.  I’ve seen this in cartoons but never in person.  John picked up Rachel and threw her over his shoulder and ran.  As we ran across the top of the small hill, the disc followed us, silently.  We could see figures moving inside the UFO via small openings in the middle of the UFO. We stopped at the section of the hill, which would have taken us back down into the street.  At this time, I told everyone I was going to go get binoculars so I ran down the hill, across the empty lot, and jumped the fence to the back of our house.  As I ran up the back stairs and I reached for the doorknob, I suddenly had this feeling that I wasn’t suppose to see them so I literally took my hand off of the doorknob as if it were hot to the touch.  I then turned around, ran down the stairs, jumped the fence and ran up the hill, back to my waiting friends and sister.  Jean asked me where the binoculars were and I said I couldn’t get them.  She seemed to accept that answer, even though it didn’t make sense then and certainly doesn’t make sense now.

We were still standing on the small hill, closer to the street with the burnt orange disc still hovering close by.   Then suddenly, the disc shot straight up and literally disappeared from sight.  The 5 of us just stood there  dumbfounded.

Later that evening, the 5 of us were still on the hill, trying to see if we could see the UFO again.  From the top of the small hill, we could see many of the streets.  We had a very good view of Mansell Street.  We noticed a  light coming down the street.  It was a single, bright light, going very, very slow.  We really weren’t sure what it was but I remember John saying he thought it was a motorcycle while I though it was a bicycle.  Whatever it was, it turned right on Bowdoin Street, which was a dead-end.  It stopped at the end of the street and shot straight up into the sky and disappeared from sight.  We never saw it or the UFO again.

Side note:  The next day, Jean asked her father, Howard Norville (now deceased), who worked at the San Francisco Airport as a TWA mechanic, if anyone reported lights in the sky on the evening of our encounter.  He told her no one had reported lights or anything unusual during the time we had our sighting.

I also found a report of someone else reporting a  light in the sky above San Bruno Mountains during the summer of 1970.  Not sure if it’s the same date and time as our sighting but it’s seems to fit what we saw and experienced.

13-136-FB1 (Clarke Summit, PA)

Remain Anonymous: Yes

Field Investigation Requested: no

Date of Sighting: Winter 2001

Time of Sighting: about  4:15 pm

Duration of Event: 5 minutes

Location of UFO: Clarke Summit, PA, USA

Shape of Object: Triangle

UFO Report: I was driving on the highway that runs parallel to a commercial street to the left of the highway. The highway is about 400 meters to the right and 80 meters above the town. My friend said “holy X! What is that?” And pointed above the town. I thought at first they were helicopters in formation flying about 200 meters above the town. We took the next exit and went back and pulled over overlooking town. They lights were in a triangle formation just hovering but making no sound. It was beginning to get dark and there was fog and haze covering the commercial street. We sttod and watched them for nearly 5 minutes. It was either 5 single flying objects or one VERY large object. It would have to have been over 150 yards long and 60 yards wide. Eventually we got in the car and drove into the town that the lights were hovering above. We could not see them above us when we got down there. We went back to the highway but whatever it (they) was wasn’t there anymore. If it was helicopters, why no sound? We were very close and why would they be there hovering in formation anyway?

13-123-AN1 (Onancock, Va)

Date of Sighting: 1980s

Time of Sighting: 5-6PM

Duration of Event: Unknown

Location of UFO: Onancock, Va

Shape of Object: Black Triangle

UFO Report: I saw a black triangle many years ago in Onancock, Va. It was sometime in the late 1980’s between 5:00 & 6:00pm after dark, so it had to be in the winter months. Wife needed something from the store to complete dinner so I headed to the grocery store about 3/4 mile away to grab whatever it was. I turned north off our street heading to a T where I would turn right (east). The night was cool and cloudless. I turned off our street and had gone several hundred yards when a headlight shined in my eyes at the end of the street where I was to turn right. Only thing was the headlight was in the sky! Thought that was strange. As I kept on that road the light was finally out of my eyes but still visible. I turned right and headed to the store about 3 tenths of a mile on the left. I turned into the parking lot and when I got out I looked left up in the sky and there was this gigantic triangle blocking out the stars. It was hovering over the residential section, making no noise and had a light on each point of the triangle. As I stood there, it seemed to be moving south, just creeping or floating about 4 or 5 mph. It was probably no more than a thousand feet off the ground. I would guess it was as large as the average NFL football stadium, not the same shape of course. Knowing my wife needed the ingredient to complete dinner, I rushed inside. After making the purchase, I went back to my truck and looked over to see the triangle. It was gone. Never saw it again. If the light hadn’t hit me in the eye, I’m sure I would never have noticed it at all.

Location of UFO: Patterson,Ks Alfafa field

Shape of Object: Sphere

UFO Report: I worked 3rd shift for a hay cutting company in Mt Hope Kansas 6pm to 6am . We were on our final rounds for the year I was the only cutter and there was 1 truck driver my trailer was full and I turned off my rig to wait on the truck driver to empty my trailer so I could proceed cutting. I knew it would be 30 minutes or longer before he showed up so I made myself comfortable on the stroud of my Case tractor the stroud extended from the cab and angled toward the ground was a great place to stretch out and stay warm propped up against the exhaust. I was facing south looking up at the stars when an object appeared in the sky just above the horizon it was extremely bright white and coming directly toward me it came at an incredible speed over my head I turned to follow it as it disappeared going north. The only sound I heard [and it was quite outside] was a swoosh. I could not determine the altitude or size of the thing the speed was almost like a bullet there was no tail on it and it brightness never wavered . The interesting thing was the next few days the media started mentioning the UFO that had landed in Delphi,Ks in a farmers feedlot that town is almost directly North of where I was cutting it is my opinion that this is what I witnessed. This case left trace evidence that has never been explained Whatever it was in 1971 I can only claim IT WASNT MADE IN KANSAS

12-007-FB1 (Rhodesia, Africa)


Synopsis: In 1953, the exact day or month unknown, the witness of this investigation saw a large silver flying disk while living in Rhodesia, Africa. The witness admitted the event occurred over 60 years ago but could still remember the event vividly.

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, who was deemed credible. The witness, moreover, is a lawyer and author of many novels. According to the witness, while outside the local Post Office in Salisbury, a silver disk-shaped UFO was seen hovering over the city. The UFO hovered for about five minutes and then “shot straight up into the air” until it was no longer in sight. The investigators contacted the local newspaper The Herald in Zimbabwe in hopes of retrieving archived reports to corroborate the witness’ testimony. However, the newspaper editor could not provide any information because the civil war resulted in the destruction of the newspaper’s archives. Because the sighting took place nearly 55 years ago at a remote country, the investigators could not find a sufficient amount of relevant information to identify the object. The investigation, therefore, was closed as unresolved/unidentified.

Object Details: Unidentified
