Michigan hunters encounter UFO in remote wooded area

Two Michigan witnesses at Harbor Springs reported watching an 8-foot diameter ball of blue-white light hovering less than 100 feet away that appeared to move away in a controlled manner, according to testimony in Case 62045 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The testimony was filed for the witnesses by Michigan MUFON Chief Investigator Daniel Snow on December 18, 2014, for events that occurred at 6:15 a.m. on November 16, 2014.

“Witness (A) and his brother, witness (B), were at a secluded deer hunting blind which was a two-hour hike in 10 inches of snow from their vehicle,” the investigator stated. “The location was on top of a prominent hill with a broad view of the valley below.”

The investigator described the strange encounter.

“After getting setup, still prior to sunrise, they noticed about a half dozen flashes of light. It was snowing moderately, when all of a sudden at close range, a stationary ball of white light appeared just above the tree tops nearby. The trees were about 30 feet high and the distance away was less than 100 feet.”

The object and its movement were described.

“The object appeared to be about the size of a small car, appeared to be a glowing blue/white ball of light with no edges and no attached object. After a few seconds of being stationary, the object proceeded to flow down the valley, parallel to the ground, and disappeared. The total sighting duration was about 30 seconds. The winds observed were from the north. The object departed to the east. No tracks, imprints or changes were observed to the nearby snow cover.”

    Approximately 6 months ago I witnessed the same. It was around 10 pm. I’m in Texas, and it took place in Pasadena .
    First, before I tell my experience, I’m a 20 year baby nurse. Infact- I was working the night I saw what I can only describe as not of this earth! I do drink…. Lots of water! And I do drugs…..only when I’m sick!

    Although it’s been months-to me,it happened yesterday,for I think of that night every day! To think that 30 seconds could change this skeptic to a believer -but it did;-for what reason? I don’t know.

    It was a clear night, although it had rained earlier. As I’m walking across a side street to get to my car,out of thin air(lack of better way to describe ) approximately 3 stories high, comes this white ball of plasmic light about the size of a large car wheel. Traveling at great speed and seemingly to me with purpose. Crosses over my head, and then just comes to an abrupt stop!

    Now I’m watching this thing and thinking what in the hell! It’s alive with energy. No sound. No tail. It’s as if it was thinking on what it wanted to show me next! After maybe 10 seconds 2 more balls of light-half it’s size, plop out one on each side. They both simultaneously go in front of the larger, (making a single file), then,snap your fingers -they disappear.

    Ball lightning. No way! To big in my opinion. And no lightning! If anyone has an idea on what it could be? Please email me @ zsazsa219@gmail.com

    Thanks for letting me comment. A little wordy and I’m sorry-I just felt it was time to finally share.
