Illinois witness says giant UFO looked like ‘Star Wars’ ship

An Illinois witness at Waltonville reported watching a “giant ship” with a slight glow to it that moved overhead on August 23, 2014, according to testimony in Case 59230 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was fishing with friends when the object was noticed “just cruising along at a very high altitude.”

“This thing had to be at least a half mile long or longer,” the witness stated. “It wasn’t lit up bright. It had a slight glow to it .Nothing fancy.”

The object reminded the witness of ships depicted in Hollywood films.

“I have seen a lot of things in the night sky and have never seen anything like this. It reminded me of some of the giant ships on the ‘Star Wars’ movie.”

The witness stated that the object looked like something out of a ‘Star Wars’ movie. Pictured: Waltonville, IL. (Credit: Google)

The witness provided one illustration with the MUFON report, which was submitted on August 25, 2014.

“I have included a very generic picture I made in Paint real quick just to give a basic outline. Please remember that this is just the bottom of the object so I have no idea on how tall this thing was.”

“It was flying in a straight path heading north from my location. It just flew out of visual range.”

    Any theories about how UFOs/aliens avoid the dangers of the Van Allen radiation belts & other radiation in outer space?

    we send satellites out into space with messages? hello this is Earth here , how crude? the future sends back messages in forms of UFOs they show us the future of our ways forward, how to protect the future of our planet, the evidence is then suppressed by the powers of this world till when ever,
    One day my sighting 11th September 2004 will be shown all around the world as a historic event that was suppressed by the energy companies until they could cope with their loss,free clean energy for us all.FULMINOLOGY, The future as seen by myself and many others, that’s for sure.
