A New York witness at North Creek reported watching and photographing three bright spheres slowly moving at the tree level, according to June 10, 2014, testimony in Case 56984 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness noticed lights in the sky at 2:02 a.m. on June 4, 2014, and stepped outside for a better look.
“I saw movement,” the witness stated, “three bright lights in the distance coming across the mountain from the southeast.”
The witness quickly stepped inside to retrieve a cell phone, set it to record video (seen above), and moved back outside.
“The objects were now the size of basketballs and kept getting larger. I aimed the camera at the first object, could not capture all three at the same time, and was able to get five seconds, and then the recorder stopped.”
The witness stepped back inside, reset the phone to capture still images, and then stepped back outside again and was able to capture the other two objects.
“I sat unbelieving and mesmerized for about 10 minutes. Then the first orb began to move closer and downward. I was convinced it was headed at me. Suddenly another dimmer, comet-like (had a tail) object streaked in near the orb towards the Earth. Both passed out of view around the edge of the house.”
The witness then began to focus on the other two orb-like objects.
“They were slowly moving down across the mountain, through the trees about 50-100 yards away. The one on the left sunk below my vision. The one on the right passed through the trees while descending. This caused it to appear to be blinking. I finally lost sight of it.”
The witness went back inside and a few minutes later sent a Facebook message to his daughters. The timestamp on that message is 2:21 a.m.
