“According to the report, the two teenagers – one male and one female – were alone in their car near the Fallon Naval Air Station at 9:18 p.m. when they encountered odd lights in the sky to the east. Three boomerang-shaped objects were seen with five lights on each,” reports Roger Marsh.
“While they watched the three objects, one of them separated from the group, shut off three of its five lights, and appeared as though it would land or crash. At this point, the two witnesses decided to give chase. After driving 3 and-a-half miles, one of the objects moved closer to their vehicle – about 100 yards away and just 20 feet off of the ground – and began to pace it.
And a second object positioned itself behind them. At this point, they accelerated from 30 to 50 miles per hour, but the objects kept pace,” writes Marsh.
According to Marsh, “The male witness used a million-candle spotlight from his truck to shine on the craft above, using his hand to shade the light back-and-forth to produce a “signal.” The object overhead then responded by descending from 50 feet to 20 feet above them.”
Marsh further reports, “At this point in the report, the witnesses have a lost time period. Their next recollection for both of them was driving home, where the male witness recalled that he looked into the rear view mirror and noticed that one of the objects was a “considerable distance” behind them, and then it disappeared.”
Below is the original report from MUFON.
My boyfriend and I were driving around the desert. We had been out there a while, and soon it got very dark. We were driving back on our way home, when we both saw 3 objects in the distance, with lights we had never seen before, and flying in a unusual way, in a group.
We got very excited while watching, and suddenly they started breaking away from each other. One started going down towards the ground and disappeared like it had crashed. The other two continued to fly, almost towards us.
We decided to chase them! We started after them, and they flew right by us many times. One of them seemed to keep coming back to us. We tried to confirm it as a military aircraft, but it was nothing either of us had seen before.
We thought maybe it could be a drone, but the more we looked we knew it wasn't. At first there was 3 flying objects, but by this time there was only 2.
But only one seemed to acknowledge us. We parked the truck after watching it fly by us and over us several times. It was completely silent and hovered slowly, although in the distance it went faster. I decided to plug the spotlight in and try to get its attention. It worked!
We were parked on a dirt road, next to a water canal. Across from the canal was a small pasture, the hovering craft flew directly at us, and stopped facing us. We shined the light at it, and put our hand over the light to make it strobe.
The craft sat there for a good 5 minutes, and seemed like it was getting closer, so close it was almost as if we could throw something at it, and still there was NO SOUND. I tried to get pictures but, the pixel rate on my cam phone was too low, and came up as all black on the screen.
We started to get scared and jumped back in the truck, as soon as we did the craft moved and went behind us as if it was following us. The other craft was in the distance as if it was watching, sort of like back up.
My boyfriend and I both called our parents freaking out, and not knowing how to explain the events that were going on. We watched them fly around us consistently. But when we reached the highway, and back on our way into town, they disappeared.
When we made it back into town to my house, I was standing outside, and saw a C130 fly over our heads. I knew this wasn't the craft I saw because it was too large, was too high up, and wasn't silent. I could also see the shape of it and it was obviously a plane.
But these hovering craft we saw were black, almost invisible except for the lights. When they turned you couldn't see them. The only time they were all visible was when they were facing you, and that because of the 5 aligned lights.
I went inside my house and drew a picture for my father, and he called the naval base here in Fallon. They told us they had no reports of any aircraft besides the C130. But I knew it wasn't a C130!
My boyfriend and his father went back out to where we were. When they got there, there were helicopters with spotlights on the ground, and several trucks with spotlights driving through the desert. A black SUV with very dark tinted windows driving towards the area we saw the craft. Men were walking around with spot lights in the desert, as if they were all looking for something.
But if they were looking for the craft that we thought we saw crash, they were in the wrong area, they were looking where we had first seen the crafts from a distance, miles away.
I'm not sure what I saw tonight, but I've always been a believer of other life forms. And tonight was proof for me. I was scared... and excited. I hope I find out more about what I saw.
