VINELAND — The truth is out there, and it may have been found in Vineland.
An unidentified resident was headed to sleep around midnight on Nov. 21, 2013 when they noticed bright lights outside of their window — a possible UFO sighting.
The resident, who has yet to be identified, then alerted their fiancée, according to a report made on the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) website on Feb. 5.
“When we pulled the shade down, we noticed that the lights were so bright that it illuminated the whole front yard,” the report indicated.
The report purportedly describes what the couple saw, consisting of three, low-flying lights in a triangular shape. Their photo depicting the incident also appears on a number of other websites reporting the Vineland saucer.
“The object was bigger than my house,” the report states. “The object was completely silent. The object was flying to the east at a crawl.”
The couple weren’t the only ones to see the unidentified flying objects, according to the report, with the witness finding pictures of the UFOs on their friend’s Facebook the next day.
“At the time, I did not feel (threatened) or scared, I was in awe,” the witness said.
The report and a photo of the UFOs can be found on the MUFON website. MUFON is an organization dedicated to UFO sighting and started in 1969.
“The scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of humanity,” the website states as its motto.
The Vineland UFO sighting was also reported by the Huffington Post and the Examiner, which both took information from the MUFON website.
The object was bigger than my house. The object was completely silent. The object was flying to the east at a crawl.
There was another UFO sighting in Cumberland County during 2013, according to the MUFON website, which occurred on Sept. 10.
A Millville woman and her husband reportedly saw orange lights in the sky, also around midnight, above their neighbor’s shed.
“It passed over our house, looked like a wing and when it passed it covered the stars in the background behind it,” the report states.
There was no sound as the UFO passed over.
“Not sure what we saw, but by the time we got to the front of the house it was in the distance and disappeared.”
MUFON has no formal connection to the government, according to its website, and continues its efforts to convince the government to declassify UFO-related documents.
For those that encounter UFOs, MUFON offers tips that include remaining calm, documenting the event, and reporting the event to a UFO research organization for investigation.
“Should you encounter some type extraterrestrial being associated with the craft be prepared to take evasive action to protect yourself,” MUFON’s website states.
“From a safe distance, in a concealed position photograph or video tape the being. If you are unable to safely get photos of the being, draw and write down a description as soon as it is safe to do so.”
