The witness had just pulled into his driveway on September 19, 2016, and was outside his vehicle when the sound of an airplane was heard overhead.

“Living by an airport I know that no flights came in so late,” the witness stated.“So I stood in my driveway to see what kind of airplane it was. Suddenly I see a white orb of light going over the roof tops and over the trees. Not far behind were threeblack helicopters in a triangle-shaped flight pattern following the craft at very high speeds.”

The witness kept his eyes on the unusual looking craft.

“The craft then made a left hand turn towards the mountains. That’s when I see one of the helicopters intercept the craft, getting in front of it. That’s when I lose sight of the craft over the roofs of nearby houses.”

The witness stood to listen to the helicopters to see if they were still in the area.

“I know that this wasn’t an airplane or helicopter due to the fact that it had no blinking lights or defined shape, and made no sound at all.”

The witness attempted to capture the event on his cell phone.

“When I took my cell phone out to record video the sky was too dark. Beforehand, my cell phone was around 20 percent about a minute or two before I saw the craft. But when I took it out to try and record the video I noticed my battery life was on 2 percent.”

The witness is sure that the object was something unusual.

“I’m a very open minded person. I’ve seen threeUFOs in my life, so when I first saw the craft I looked to see a defined shape or lights which I seen neither. I know it was something strange when I saw the three black helicopters following. I could easily see the shape of the helicopters because of how clear of a night it was. I felt curious and wanted to follow the craft, but I know no one would believe me. That is why I reported it to MUFON.”

The witness included two illustrations with the MUFON report, which was filed on September 18, 2016.

Fountain is a Home Rule Municipality located in El Paso County, Colorado, population 28,846. Colorado Field Investigator Jeffrey Hastings is investigating.

  1. I believe it because listen to this one I live in northern NJ
    . The other morning I woke up to what sounded like the craziest highest speed wind I’ve ever heard that lasted for about four seconds. At first on the news they said they werent releasing anything but eventually they did . check it out below and also Google sonic boom NYC for these dates as well.. Month of September seems to be active as hell. And just saying why are these jets going that fast to chase that type of plane ??? ALSO why is that dude flying a plane that early in the morning .. So fishy


  2. I also came across this while searching check it out pretty interesting


  3. I live in Davie, Florida. A similar event occurred in 2014 at 11:15 pm. A bright light (sphere shape) flew at incredible speed over the highway and houses followed by two high speed helicopters. The bright light must have been traveling several hundred miles per hour due to the time it traversed through my field of vision. That bright light made no sound as it flew.

  4. Don’t forget the location by Fountain is where NORAD is located in Cheyenne Mountain.

  5. I have seen a similar event this past August, in Surf City, NC. I witnessed a green orb maybe 4 feet in diameter being chased at high speed/low altitude by a black military helo directly over the beach/city at about 10pm one night. My wife and I both heard the helicopter first, then saw it was chasing that orb. We both said, “WTF was that helicopter chasing?!” as we sat on the beach stargazing. That same week, I witnessed two other odd events of airplanes following orbs of light plus several other questionable aerial anomalies during my nightly walks on the beach.

  6. I saw this myself while on I-25 on the way home that night, as did my passengers, and we thought it originally was an airplane going down, but there was no crash or explosion. Very odd. Note that area is on an approach lane to the Springs Airport.
