Light Streaks Across West Virginia and Maryland

Are these sightings related?  The sightings occurred on the same evening, yet were seen miles apart in separate states West Virginia and Maryland).

These reports were submitted to MUFON and are re-posted here, unedited.


MUFON Case # 46951    
Date: 04-23-2013
Location: Bel Air, Maryland
Summary: The point of light traveled across the sky in a strange, but mostly straight path. Traveled what would be the eqiuvalent to about 8 inhes across the sky, then abruptly made a 90 degree turn and immediately dissappeared with no noise throughout.

I was smoking a cigarette with my friend, who will also confirm this sighting as he was standing right next to me. Ive been an avid stargazer since birth, I follow UFOlogy, and I have always believed that we were not alone in the universe long before anybody had brought the debate up. Feeling quite robbed of my ability to see the Lyrid meteor shower last night, as there was very dense cloud cover in my area, I decided to see if I could see anything tonight. As we went outside to smoke, we light our cigarettes, and as we often do, looked up. I was just glancing around trying to decide which constellation to marvel at, and as I did I looked to what I think was the star, Alphard, I dont know my stars super well this was after the fact using Starmap 3D, anyway, what I thought was a star begins to move slowly across the sky. As I had just stared to watch it I thought, "Oh, just another plane." As I live very close to BWI and theres constant air traffic over my house. But then as it got closer, I didnt hear any jet engine sounds as I normally always do, and as I watched it move across the sky, it seemed to be weaving, from left to right, in somewhat of a line, as it flew. I thought this was odd for a plane to be flying in this manner, and let out a, "Hmph.", as if puzzled and as my friend dave knew what that sound meant, he began to watch what I was as well. We both obseverd this object for about 5 minutes, and at the very end of the sighting it made a very abrupt 90 degree turn and the light vanished, which is something i have never observed personally until last night. It left me with goosebumpbs as I had been waiting my entire life to observe a UFO first hand, unfortunately without the foresight to bring a video camera I didnt capture anything. But it felt unreal to me, I tried as I could to logically explain away what we had both witnessed. Perhaps a sattelite, for example. But the more I tried, the more it seemed apparent to me that I couldnt explain away what I had seen, which led me to believe that I did in fact observe a UFO.


MUFON Case # 46948    
Date: 04-23-2013    
Location: summersville, West Virginia
Summary: a bright solid white light about size of a pie plate moving at a high rate of speed moving from the NW horizon to about 3/4 SW horizon changing direction at 90 degrees and then shooting straight up out of site no sound. no blinking lights   

Myself an my wife were doing some evening yard work and had piled up a bunch of brush to burn in our fire pit. We decided we would burn the brush and sit and watch for some meteors during the meteor shower, at about 955pm I had stood up to warm my back against the fire and I was facing the North West Sky I noticed this bright round light moving towards us just over the tree tops behind my house, I quickly noticed it did not have any flashing red white or green lights that are required on all aircraft, I said to my wife for her to look at this light coming towards us and over our head, as she saw it she said what is that I said , well I dont know for sure, I cant see any flashing lights like a normal aircraft would have, but we should hear some type of engine noise in a few seconds as it gets over our heads and past us which is normally the case when you see a normal aircraft going past you then you hear the engine. I also noticed that it appeared to be covering a large amount of distance way faster than any aircraft I have ever seen, and believe me I have seen many, I was an Air Force Brat since the age of 6 and I also almost 9 years active duty in the Air Force. I said to my wife Im gonna get my Binoculars that were in my truck approximately 30 feet away from us,I kind of fast walked over to it grabbed them and headed back towards my wife a few steps as I was about to lift the binoculars up towards the object she said in an excited voice it just changed direction, I quickly looked up to get a fix on it with my eyes so I could put my binoculars on it and it appeared to have moved in an easterly Direction form when I last saw it and it appeared to be in a hover for a second then just shot straight up and out of sight within about a sec to second and a half, enough to know that it was getting smaller and not simply the light going out. There was no sound at all. We had seen several aircraft flying around before we saw the object all had the typical flashing red , green type lights and sound, as well as after we saw the object. Having been around every imaginable aircraft in our arsenal as well as many other countries aircraft, I can tell you for a fact this was not one of our Known aircraft. I hope others were out watching the meteor shower and saw the same object.

My Take On The 1st Annual Tyler, Texas Paranormal Conference

I'm back from the conference in Tyler, Texas and it was awesome!  I met so many nice people and had a wonderful time.  I even think I did OK as a speaker, at least I hope I was able to inform and for some, build an interest in the field of Ufology.

After I spoke Saturday morning and while folks were taking a short 10 minute break, I was able to answer a few questions and even listen to stories of UFO sighting, including a skeptic or two, as they told me of their experiences.   But they are skeptics, right?  

I tried to impress on everyone that UFO means "unidentified flying object."  It doesn't automatically mean that every unidentified object is an alien craft, it simply means what it implies, that it was something you couldn't identify.

At the Para Con, each speaker was entertaining and informative. After all, they are experts in their own fields of interest, be it ghost hunting, Bigfoot hunting, speaking with spirits, energy work or little o' me and UFOs (Me, an expert?  I'm still learning!).  It was a great experience for me, as I am sure it was for everyone who attended.  I am definitely looking forward to next year!

I would like to publicly thank promoter and producer, George Jones of Jericho's Tours of, and all his associates, for their outstanding job and warm hospitality.


Note: Please stay tuned for "A Ufologist Goes Ghost Hunting"

Mysterious Booming Sounds in Florida

In March of 2013,  there were fireballs and mystery booms reported over Florida.  Here is one such report.
Please note that this report is unedited.

MUFON Case # 46681     
Date:  March 21, 2013
Location:   West Palm Beach, Florida

Summary:  Bright white light followed by the loudest boom/bang Ive ever heard in the distance to the south. A mystery boom.    

Outside at four in the morning and smoking a cigarette, I saw a bright white light in the direction I was looking (south) followed by a chest shaking bang or boom... Almost like the worlds loudest gunshot times much more. Called the police over it and was informed that it was likely a transformer though their computers showed no outages. I looked into this type of event and found that it falls under the category of mystery boom. The closest event I can direct people to thats similar to what I saw is a video from surveillance taken in Salem, Massachusetts, albeit I was much further away... the video seems to be very close to the boom. I was several miles but it was very loud and the sound took no time to get to me. I didnt see any reports about this in the area, but Ive seen many across the country and feel it should be considered ufo phenomenon. Add West Palm Beach, Florida to the list of places that have experienced a boom. At the time of this posting, more odd events occurred with well known friends in the area. Though this was worth reporting.


Other reports can be seen here:

Were these lights and sounds due to meteors?

Orange Light In Sky Over Clermont, Georgia

Above image is a depiction and not a photo.
Click on image for larger view.


I received an emailed report from a witness in Clermont, Georgia, who stated that he and his wife watched an orange light in the sky as it traveled West to East.

Here is that report:

Location: Clermont, Georgia, U.S.A.
Date/Time: 03/31/2013, 9:00 pm (21:00)
Object description: Orange light in sky

Hi Sunny.

In response to your post that I read today, just wanted to let you know that my wife and I were outside Sunday night, 3/31/2013 and saw a bright, non-flashing orange light in the night sky around 9 pm. The "object" did not appear to be a normal aircraft as it did not have flashing beacon lights (red or green) nor a bright white landing light. We live in Clermont, GA near the mountains. The light was moving generally in a west-to-east path while visible and in a straight horizontal line. No sound was heard and could not determine the size or distance, but was awesome to see as the intensity of the light was constant and was like nothing we've ever seen. I thought it may have been the International Space Station, but when I checked it's location, it was nearing the western coast of Australia.

No clue what it was - did you ever see again or come across any info as to what it may be?

[Name withheld by SW/LITS]

Investigator's Note: The witness is correct that the object was not the International Space Station, nor do I believe it was a conventional aircraft, satellite, or meteor.

It is also highly unlikely that it was swamp gas, a weather balloon, plastic bag, Chinese lantern, or Venus.   So what does that leave?

As I told the witness that could be either a 'drone', or 
possibly an extraterrestrial object/craft.   I'll add here that perhaps it could even have been some new black-ops technology. 

The object remains unidentified.  -Sunny
