New York family at campfire shocked when UFO appears nearby

New York family members at Williamson said they were “dumbfounded” when a bright light UFO appeared just 100 yards away in nearby trees, moved out into a clearing and then shot off into the night sky about 11:01 p.m. on September 27, 2014, according to testimony in Case 60183 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and family members were outside at a campfire when the object was first noticed.

“My brother-in-law first noticed an extremely bright white light through the trees 100 yards away east of us,” the reporting witness stated. “The light was blinding and we could not make out the shape.”

They first thought the object might be a helicopter.

“But there was no sound and the object moved in ways I have never seen.”

The witness described the object’s movement.

“The object started from behind the trees and then moved out into a clearing before accelerating at great speed up in the air and out of view. It started northeast in the tree line and slowly moved south as it came out of the trees and then shot up and away in the east.”

The group eventually lost sight of the object.

“We were dumbfounded and could not believe what we saw. We lost sight of the object after it climbed to so much altitude and it was no longer visible.”

    I live in Idaho and my wife and I see ufo”s all the time, all we do is just wait until the sun goes down and look up, it helps to get away from city lights so you can see better, try it you’ll see some weird things out there for sure.

    Last year, I was walking the dogs just after dark. I was watching the sky and saw what I thought was a meteor moving south to north. It was a light that looked like a star and the speed was faster than anything I had seen. Note an Air Force base is near by so I know speed. As I watched, the object suddenly stopped, no deceleration. It circled and then accelerated once again achieving its previous speed in just a few moments. Convienced me something is out there.
