99 percent of all UFO sightings can be explained as the simple misidentification of natural phenomena, aircraft, balloons, normal things seen under abnormal conditions and hoaxes. As you read any stories and watch any videos on this site or any other, make your own judgement and separate those from the real sightings.
MAY 7, 2016
Four of us were sitting on back deck about 11:30 pm Saturday May 7. We noticed a low, round, bright light coming in the distance moving east to northwest passing over the field behind us. At first I assumed it was an airplane headed for Wright Patterson AFB or the Springfield Airport, both not far from where we live. It was low, probably about 100' off the ground, but we could hear no sound or see any other identifying lights. The light got bigger the closer it got to us, at it's biggest I figured it to be about 5' in diameter. At this point it was about a 1/4 mile away. The light then slowed down to almost a stop and seemed to be meandering around above a wooded area for a minute or two. We were just about to get in the car and drive towards it when it took off faster than it came in the direction it came from. There were no other lights seen from that angle. This is the first time I've ever seen anything act like that. I will keep watching.
