13-035-AN1 (Thailand)

Date of Sighting: 01 July 2008

Time of Sighting: Around 1900

Duration of Event: Unknown

Location of UFO: Thailand

Shape of Object: Light

UFO Report: Was dark, and was walking down beach. Noticed a disarrangement of a v shape of lights that seemed high in the sky. was about the intensity of a medium star. Thought it looked strange as there was no sound yet the beach was quiet and it appeared quite large for something to be far enough away to be silent. Initially dismissed it as a group of jets flying in formation, but as i watched it, i decided to watch a star that it was passing in front of, the star disappeared and did not reappear till it had passed fully past the triangle shape. It was obvious that t it was one object. I then began to think it was lights on a wing but the angle was very steep to be a conventional aircraft, and if it was it would have had to be low enough to hear to be that size. It was very strange and I certainly cant identify what it was. I’ve got a fairly rational mind, but i cant explain it. Didn’t have my camera with me at the time, we were on holiday and were on our way to dinner.

13-105-CE3 (Skinwalker Ranch, Utah)


Update 28 Oct 13: The Aerial Phenomena Team visited Skinwalker Ranch from 17-21 Oct 2013. We are returning for phase 2 of the investigation in early 2014. Upon return of the second expedition, a report will be published.

Skinwalker Ranch, much like Area 51, has had its share of bizarre UFO lore and legend. Tales of interdimensional portals, alien abductions on the property, and yes, even bulletproof werewolves have attracted platoons of both seasoned and arm-chair UFO/Paranormal investigators to this reclusive ranch in Utah. Dubbed the “UFO ranch”, the property was once (and perhaps still is) leased by billionaire Robert Bigelow under the auspices of the National Institute for Discovery Science – a now-defunct fringe-science exploratory organization that attempted to study/obtain UFO/Paranormal evidence consistent with scientific publication.

Recent investigative research by API found that reports of alleged UFO activity continue at Skinwalker Ranch. In hopes of finding physical proof of such activity, therefore, API has planned two expeditions to the UFO Ranch (between September 2013 and March 2014). The results of the investigation, if any, will be a key topic at UFOCON14 in April 2014.

According to two witnesses: On 15 October 2013, at 2030 hours, a strange humming sound was heard outside their home. The two witnesses went outside, looked up in the sky and saw a bright light that remained stationary. At the same time, the two witnesses also saw what appeared to be “two jets, from different directions, flying toward the light”. As the “jets approached the light”, it faded away. One of the witnesses attempted to take a photo of the UFO with an iPad. However, the iPad’s poor focusing capability could not render a clear photo.

(AN-1) Class and Rating Explanation: Anomalies that do not have lasting physical effects, such as lights or unexplained explosions.

(3-1) Probability/Strangeness Index Explanation: 3-Multiple witness reports within short time of the sighting with good consistency between witnesses. Photographs or videos with clear provenance. Photographs have EXIF data consistent with testimony and have been subjected to careful analysis. Witnesses do not seek publicity; 1-Possibly a known manmade or natural object if one aspect of the report is misreported or misperceived. Five minutes later, two more aircraft closely following the same vectors were in visual sight of witness location.

Evidence Submitted: Photo

Initial Action: Case opened as an AN1.

Investigation and Findings: 30 Oct 13: All investigative efforts were completed. Case was closed as unidentified. However, see investigator’s Leading Hypothesis supported by relevant data gathered during the investigation.

Leading Hypothesis:

  • The “UFO”: Hidden Valley Airport is exactly in the line-of-sight where “the light” hovered (241º from witness location, which very close to the direction reported by witness); and the airstrip is less than 5 miles from were the witnesses were standing. It is possible “the light” emanated from the airport. Additionally, astronomical analysis indicated Venus was just over the horizon and also in the line-of-sight where “the light” hovered (Venus was at RA 235º and Dec 7º compared to the UFO at RA 240º and Dec 10º). Lastly, weather checks indicated there were clouds that night and could have obscured the UFO – accounting for the “light slowly faded away” statement.
  •  The “Jets”: According to radar analysis for 15 Oct 2013 (at 2016 hours), two aircraft were flying towards each other at a vector that would make it appear as though they were approaching the UFO. US Airways Flight US2121 (call sign AWE2121) was within visual sight of the witness at a heading of 277º (Radar T-F5M); and Canadair CRJ-700 (call sign GJS6206) was within visual sight of the witness at a heading of  35° (Radar T-F5M). It is likely witnesses observed these two aircraft.
  •  Humming Noise: Less than ½ mile from witness location and also in the same direction (240º SSW) is a large agricultural plant. Investigator drove past this plant on 25 Oct 13 and noticed a loud machinery-type noise from the plant.

Object Details: Unidentified.

13-074-AN1 (Canada)

Date of Sighting: September 7 2013

Time of Sighting: around 9 pm

Location of UFO: Hagersville Ontario Canada

UFO Report: My girlfriend and I were driving home from dinner at her parents. About 500m from our driveway I saw 4 orange lights in a vertical line to our northwest. The second light from bottom looked out of the line a bit more to the west. As we passed a building they went out of sight and were in a square formation when they appeared again. I told my girlfriend to pull over at this point and she pulled in our surveys driveway and stopped. When we walked back to the sidewalk there were only 3 now and in a triangle formation crossing the hi way in an east direction.  It was only 10-15 seconds they had been out of my view. They made no sound. My girlfriend went back to the car for her cellphone for a picture and right before she got back they had disappeared behind a cloud.  We have both worked at the airport for 10 years and know pretty well what planes look like at night. It was also too low and slow to be a satellite. I have no idea what these were.

Initial Action: Case opened as an FB1.

Investigation and Findings:  Investigation was opened on 08 Sep 2013

Object Details: Case is still oppen.


13-082-AN1 (Kinsman, OH)

Date of Sighting: 09/25/2013

Time of Sighting: 8:02pm

Location of UFO: Kinsman IGA parking lot Kinsman, Ohio 44428

UFO Report:  On 09/25/13 at approximately 8:02pm I was standing in the Kinsman IGA parking lot speaking with a friend.  I was standing, facing the Northeasterly direction when I glanced upward toward the sky.  I saw a bright light that quickly shot a brief distance across the sky.  The object went behind a cloud and did not reappear on the other side of the cloud cover.  The object seemed to be round or spherical in shape but I wasn’t able to distinguish an exact outline.  The speed with which the object moved was extremely quick and would not have been mistaken for an airplane.  The object appeared to be slightly lower than an airplane would have been flying.  I don’t believe that the object was a star because it was much larger and brighter than the stars and it was much lower.

Evidence Submitted: None

Initial Action: Case opened as an AN1.

Investigation and Findings: Witness did not respond to interview request.

Object Details: Unresolved.

Date of Sighting: 2009-present

Time of Sighting: late nights

Location of UFO: Crawford County ,Indiana (Boone township)

UFO Report: Is the same every time ,we / I notice ” moving stars” flying across the sky usually starting from North-East and on several occasions 3-8 have been sighted in groups traveling in the same direction. I have witnessed only the moving star’s and alien spirit’s photo(I recorded this). What have convinced me  is that they will disappear into the outer atmosphere and reappear traveling in a different direction .Only on one occasion (fall of 2011) did I notice 8 traveling at the same moment.Thats it!! no proof but what I saw was convincing enough for me. lolol’s ., oh I did get something that appear’s to be a alien ghost spirit photo’s from my living room but I can’t determine what it is.

13-072-AN1 (El Paso, TX)

Date of Sighting: May 10, 2013

Time of Sighting: 11pm

Location of UFO: El Paso, Texas /westside

UFO Report: After a soft rain with absolutely no lightning, I witnessed a dull orange ball of light presumably rising from the ground about 3/4 of a mile from where I watched. In about 4 seconds it disappeared into the clouds and illuminated them as well.  As it rose towards the heavens, through the clouds, the color seemed to change to whitish, yellow.  After it disappeared into the clouds, the particular cloud it disappeared into moved eastward and disappeared.  The object disappeared approximately 60 degrees in the sky. There was no sound and by my estimations, it was around 6 feet in diameter.  It may have lifted off from the bottom of a desert arroyo as the area where I saw this is heavily populated.

Evidence Submitted: None

Initial Action: Case opened as an AN1.

Investigation and Findings:  Witness did not respond to investigative interview.

Object Details: Unresolved.
