An Alabama witness at Centerville reported watching a dull red, cross-shaped object moving just above the tree line at 9:15 p.m. on June 4, 2014, according to testimony in Case 56846 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness had just returned home and was outside when a star-like object was first noticed moving south to north at high altitude. The witness went inside briefly to retrieve a camera and several minutes later noticed the second object.
“I observed what appeared to be an almost cross-shaped object slightly descending from the western sky,” the witness stated.
The witness began to take photos of this low altitude object.
“I quickly began to take pictures of this dull red object as it tracked across the sky seemingly just above the tree line going from west to northeast.”
