12-26-10 ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE MARYLAND
I was driving home from work on the Sunday morning after Christmas 12/26/2010 at 2:25 am and it was snowing lightly.
I was traveling on Matta-Woman Beantown Road going from 301 south to Rt. 5. I was approximately half way down the road, where the park and ride is located, when I saw a huge aircraft about 200 ft in length emerge out of the clouds about 100 ft over the tree line.
The first thing I noticed when I saw the craft was that it had an unusual amount of lights on the front of it to be an airplane. Being that I am in the aerospace industry I see large aircraft on a daily basis, and none of them have that many lights.
Nevertheless, I was just thinking it was a large plane flying low. I continued driving slowly and watching it and shortly after it came out of the clouds, it banked a hard right maybe 60 degrees or more, and at this point I could see the entire shape of the craft.
It had lights covering the entire perimeter of the craft and what seemed like what would be the cockpit/fuselage. It had lights surrounding that part too.
In the center of the craft where the fuselage would be, there was a red blinking light on top of the craft and one on the bottom. This is what is called an anti-collision light required by all aircraft flying in US airspace.
I got excited at this point because I thought it was a B-2 bomber and I have never seen one before in person. So I was not sure of the light pattern. It had the exact same shape a B-2 except the tail of the craft cut straight across from wing tip to wing tip.
The B-2 has several triangle shapes on the tail of the aircraft. Once the craft came out of its 60 degree bank and leveled off, it just sat in one spot and did not move.
At this point I pulled over because I was amazed that it stopped and hovered. I did not think this was a UFO, but was just some sort of aircraft that didn’t exist. So I pulled over and got out of the car expecting to hear a very loud engine running because the craft was hovering and it takes a lot of power to hover an aircraft. I got out and I heard nothing but silence.
That’s when my heart started to beat really fast because I had an idea of what I was seeing. I went to grab my phone to take a picture and the lights just went out. I could still see the craft in the sky being that it was no more than 75 ft from me and it was snowing, so it was easy to see.
The craft was dark, almost black, and I could still easily see it hovering. I watched it for about 5 minutes with its lights off just sitting there hovering.
After the 5 minutes, it just started to slowly move out of sight and that was the last I saw of it. I did not hear any jet aircraft in the area which I thought was weird because I was just outside of Andrews Air Force base and you can’t get near that place without setting off some sort of alarm.
I know of 3 aircraft that can hover and two of those are stationed in the area I work and live, those being the Osprey and Joint Strike Fighter. Both of these make a lot of noise. This craft made absolutely no noise and just sat there and hovered.
I haven’t the slightest idea of what I saw that night. I’m not sure it was man made or not of this earth. I’m leaning towards man made because of the anti-collision lights located on it.
But I know of no aircraft that is 200 ft. in length and can hover without making any noise. I will truly never forget this experience.

UFO WITNESSES BY HUSBAND AND WIFE OVER CUMMINGS GEORGIA.
10-23-10 CUMMINGS GEORGIA
On Saturday, October 23, 2010, my wife and I were traveling in our SUV heading down 141W (Peachtree Parkway) at approximately 11:25am EST. We were approximately 3 miles from our destination when my wife, who was sitting in the front passenger seat stated she sees something in the sky that she can’t identify. I asked her to describe it and she really couldn’t, just that’s she’s never seen anything like it. I then peer out the window for a glance and notice the object. I take a double and then triple-take. It was silver in color. At times it looked cigar shaped but the more we looked at it, it appeared more of a disk. It’s hard to tell exactly how high in the sky it was but I would say it was about the same altitude as a low flying plane. The object was not really moving, it appeared stationary. It was not an airplane, nor helicopter, bi-plane, weather-balloon, flare or anything else of the sort. We were on our way to get our daughter’s hair cut for the first time, so we brought our digital camera. My wife got it out quickly and took the first snapshot. The camera focused on her window so it came out blurry. The next time I told her to zoom in as far as she could go and try to take another picture. She did, and the attached picture is the result. My wife looked at the picture she just took and by the time she looked back up at the object (less than 10 seconds had transpired) was completely out of site. We spent the next couple minutes looking out the windows as we were driving to see if we could again spot it but to no avail. It was definitely gone.
About 25 minutes go by and we are finished getting our daughter’s hair cut. We drive back on 141 although in the opposite direction. As we neared the location where we originally sited the object, we began to look for it again. Amazingly, we spot it, in the same general vicinity, although this time it’s traveling in the opposite direction and moving at a slow but steady speed. I immediately find a parking lot to pull into; it was a church. As I’m about to park the car, the object is in full site, again, moving relatively slow. I take an additional 10 seconds to turn the car 180 degrees into a parking spot. By the time my wife and I get out of the car, the object is now nearly out of sight in the far horizon. I couldn’t even spot it anymore and it was my wife (with her better far sight) that spotted it way off in the distance for a couple seconds before it again disappeared.
In sum, my wife is a UFO skeptic. I was amazed that she was so into this object and she only would have been if it was an extreme anomaly. The shape and variable speeds of the object is most perplexing. To note, as we got back on 141 to drive home, we noticed a black helicopter fly directly overhead at a few hundred feet. When you look at the picture, you will notice a phone/electrical line running across. Directly below is the object. When zooming in, you will immediately notice black bands/spots towards either end. I forwarded the picture to my father late last night, who is an engineer and frequently has contracts with NASA and other aeronautical associations, and he too is states that it is unlike anything he’s ever seen. Please let me know if you have any further questions and I would appreciate knowing whether anything was reported in the sky by any other agency. Thanks and good luck.

I was at home with my older sister, and I had just finished a report for school, when I got up to take the trash out.
When I was out II wanted to see if I could still spot the moon, because of the time, the moon was about ready to be replaced by the sun. I was in my front yard and I saw where the sun was coming from, but I thought it funny because it was still dark in front of my house, but behind my house it was a little bright because of the sun, what made me notice the object was the fact that it was brighter in the dark part of the sky.
At first glance I thought it was an airplane, but it was too early in the morning for flights, then I thought it was a blimp, but I have not seen a blimp since the early 1990s and because of the time.
The object was far away, but close enough for me to spot in the sky, at first it was just sitting there, but when I got my camera and a photo it started moving very slightly.
My first reaction to the sighting was “what the hell is that thing in the sky?!” I had called my sister outside to look at what I saw and her reaction was very much the same.
I did not lose sight of the object until the sun came up, and it seemed as though the object disappeared.

8-23-2010 DUDLEY WEST MIDLANDS ENGLAND
On the night of the 23rd, I took by dogs out back, near the garden and I noticed something very strange coming from the West. The time was 10:50pm. I was lucky to have my camcorder with me, so I took a video of the strange object. The object seemed to travel at a slow pace, aproximately 50 miles per hour and it was at an altitude of around 120 meters.
The weather was clear that night and my dogs did not make a fuss or notice the object. This was definately not an airplane, helicopter or lanten of any kind. There was a slight wind but it was going into the opposite direction of the object, so this would rules out a chinese lantern or balloon object. Earlier that night, I also saw a round ball that was flame red and it was traveling at incredible speed. I did not have my camcorder when this object went over. I have had a few sightings over the years but this one I was lucky to capture on my camcorder.
Special thanks to Mike Bathurst for this sighting information. This sighting was sent to World UFO Photos.
