Illinois Witness Reports Alien Sighting
UFO Depiction
Published: 10:03 AM 11/30/2013

Illinois - 11-21-13

My encounter happened November 21, 2013 at 7:05 pm exactly. I was on 37 heading from my home in Johnston City to Benton, Ill.

I was driving alone, and I looked to my right out of the passenger window and saw 3 lights appear out of nowhere.

I thought it could have been a plane, but I didn’t see any green/blue/red lights like a plane has, so I knew it wasn’t a plane.

Then it hovered over 37 to the left side and I rolled my window completely down to see if it had sound; I heard nothing.

Then I noticed something different about it; it now only had 2 lights appearing and I saw what looked like a cockpit and something standing there like it was steering it.

It was NOT the normal height of a human, the head was huge and odd-shaped, and its neck was not the normal length of a human's.

Then after what seemed a minute or 2, it darted off and before it disappeared abruptly, I saw 4 lights in the shape of a diamond.

Then it completely disappeared and I couldn’t see it or find it anywhere. In this whole event I was shocked, nervous, scared, and petrified that I had seen something I couldn’t explain.

Not counting that, but during this whole encounter, there were NO other vehicles present.

It had a triangular shape, was about as long as half of a football field and was as wide as one as well. I am reporting this because I never thought in my life I would encounter another species (alien).

I also never thought that after my mother telling me her encounter story that I would one day myself. She had her encounter in Mt. Vernon, Ill.

I would REALLY like someone to contact me to investigate this because I’m not the only one around this area who has encountered a spacecraft or being in Southern Illinois.

Multiple Lights Seen on Unknown Craft over Rome, Georgia
UFO Depiction
Published: 6:52 PM 11/27/2013

Rome, Georgia - 11-24-13

After arriving home late from work at approx. 10:15 pm, I saw just to the right of the North star. It appeared "closer" and brighter than I thought a star should be and was blinking colors sort of like a planet does.

Initially I got a cheap pair of binoculars from the house, but they made viewing worst. So I grabbed my phone.

I have Droid Maxx and switched on the video camera. What I saw will blow you away!

Initially before I zoomed in the single, bright blinking light became four distinct lights in a line in sort of the traditional saucer pattern.

A series of 3 to 4 lights would flash across in a straight line with the two on each end.

When I zoomed in after a minute or so it was the mist incredible thing I’ve EVER seen, a MASSIVE object (only can see black outline of craft), but it was covered in many lights that blinked and flashed in sequence and some random.

The craft is cigar-shaped with a sail shape on one end. There were distinct, bright flashing red light towards top part of "sail" structure and dozens of other lights all over the craft.

I have close to 5 minutes of video which I have not released but will after I protect my rights to it and have some "professionals" validate it.

I want no chance of hoax or anything else. Only 3 people have seen video besides my wife who witnessed event and all 3 were blown away.

One actually became frightened and concerned. I have proof and it’s undeniably "something." It’s no star, no planet, not a plane or helicopter or blimp. It’s the real deal.

Please have someone contact me and let’s get this video checked out and released to the world. It’s incredible!

Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. Had Close Encounter with UFO
UFO Depiction
Published: 7:41 AM 11/29/2013

By: WENN.Com

The Killers star Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. was left shaken after spotting a UFO on a road trip through Nevada.

The drummer worked as a luggage courier for an airline before shooting to fame, and he was heading across the U.S. desert on a job when he spotted a strange light in the sky.

The rocker was dumbstruck as he watched the mysterious laser-like object dip behind a mountain range before zipping up into the sky in a blinding flash of light.

Vannucci, Jr. tells Q magazine, "I was driving to the middle of Nevada on (Route) 95 North and I saw this red dot in the sky, almost like a laser pointer kind of red but it was bigger and it was doing all these motions like normal flight patterns and then it would zip down and go really quick. "I pulled over.

"I didn't have a phone at the time and I tried to radio people and no one heard me. Then it went behind this mountain range and it was six at night so the sun was going down and there was this giant flash of light afterwards, like a strobe, and it was gone. It was crazy. I'm not making any of that up."

Multi-colored Lights Reported over Copake, New York
UFO Depiction
Published: 6:36 PM 11/27/2013

Copake, New York - 11-26-13

I was at my parents' visiting and was lying in bed and decided to star-gaze out the window, and boy that was a mistake.

It was 1:00 am and I didn’t get to bed until 3. I noticed a star that moved and I thought okay; meteor shower?

Then I saw another one and was able to follow it as it flew around changing colors, stopping briefly and zooming off. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but I had solid points of reference.

The harder I looked the more I could see. Somewhere around 6 is what I safely want to say, but it was hard to tell because they moved so fast and would also flicker out at times.

They changed in colors from white, blue, green, orange, red and yellow. The consistence of the output of light changed a lot, and at times was quite extraordinarily brilliant.

They looked like stars, BUT THEY WERE NOT STARS!

They would join together and then zoom away; their movements were unpredictable, yet deliberate. After a while I decided to go downstairs and wake my mother up, who was no help because she has poor vision, but I needed someone to tell me I wasn’t crazy.

After that failed attempt, and still feeling quite insane, I went back up and decided to watch some more. After ten minutes or so, sure enough, there it was, on the horizon zooming straight up into the sky and seemed to dance with each other and then zoom away.

There movements varied so much that I was in awe, from quickly zooming, to slowly like hovering, to dashing off to the left, or falling slowly etc.

So after an hour of this, I decided to get on the computer and report what I saw and do some research. (As far as I know the phenomenon was still occurring at this point.)

First off, I concluded that I am not crazy and not seeing things. I had a few great reference points because of the way I was lying in bed, so it wasn’t my eyes playing tricks on me.

Secondly, I made my report and after doing so had some closure, so was able to finally go to bed. I lost sight of the objects by shutting my curtains and leaving my bedroom door open.

1972 - Family's Close Encounter in Wayne, New Jersey
UFO Depiction
Published: 9:30 AM 11/30/2013

c. 1972 - Wayne, New Jersey

Me and my parents, sister and cousin where driving home from my cousin's house between 12 pm to 1 am traveling from the direction of Ratzer Rd. on Valley Rd., heading towards the direction of Riverview Dr.

I was sitting in the back of the car and had looked out the back window and noticed a light over the road heading toward us. When it passed over us we were about 100 from the first entrance to High School on the right.

My parents were talking and I said: "Look! a UFO."

At first they didn't respond, then I said it louder. When it passed over, it went in a right direction where at that time there had been an old church converted to a PAL building with a roughly 40 foot Pine tree next to it.

Today they are both gone and the main entrance is now there. When my mother saw it she said: "What is that?" and told my father to pull into the High school entrance.

We parked by the front doors of the school and the UFO was about 6 feet above the tree. The UFO was, I would say, around 40 ft. in diameter and as I can remember seemed as though the top was turning in one direction and the bottom the other and the middle seemed to be all boxed lights not moving with a glowing look.

The UFO was stationary for about a minute or two and again as I remember no one in the car was talking. Now in the direction of Preakness Ave, which is a hill heading towards Paterson about two miles out, you could see a small planes lights flying over Paterson guessing 2000 ft. elevation.

I didn’t notice this until the UFO headed that way. When the UFO took off it went in the direction of the plane; when it was just above the plane it did this in less than a second, then went vertical over it and disappeared.

I had mentioned it at school to a school mate the following school year whose mother called my mother because she had been in West Paterson that night at a party and saw it.

The odd thing was years later, when the incident was brought up, only 2 of the 5 had no memory of the encounter.
