‘Shape shifting’ UFOs videotaped over Massachusetts skies

Witnesses in Holyoke, MA, reported watching and videotaping a series of “shape shifting” UFOs that moved in different directions for more than three hours beginning about 7:30 p.m. on October 14, 2014, according to testimony in Case 60610 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

“I was outside on the porch with my boyfriend smoking a cigarette and we saw these bright white lights in a row,” the reporting witness stated.

The object’s color changed.

“Then they turned red and blue and it was flying straight and then made a sharp U-turn, and then was flying in a figure 8. And every time it turned it was diagonal and you could see the diamond 3-d shape it was. And the craft was very dark. Looked kind of black.”

The witnesses watched one of the objects flying over their building and then they began seeing objects all across the sky.

“And they would speed up toward the mountain and disappear in the mountain and about a minute later over to the right side of the mountain they would shoot up into the sky really fast – changing light colors and formation – from a single blinking red light to a long line of super bright white lights flashing. At the same time there were yellow-orange huge balls of light hovering and then they started floating straight up really high until they just disappeared.”

The reporting witness remained outside with her boyfriend and two friends for three hours as they continued to see the objects.

One video was uploaded with the MUFON report, which was filed on October 15, 2014. See Video 1.

Although these lights appear to be airplanes, Massachusetts MUFON is conducting an investigation. We will share their findings when the investigation has been completed.

    After watching the video I would be very surprised if this identified as anything outside the planet. It moves like the aircraft we’re familiar with and the lights don’t appear to be anything out of the ordinary. Good job with the video. It’s nice to watch one that isn’t jumping and moving so much it’s impossible to focus on the object being recorded. I’m fascinated by the whole subject and would recommend “Out of the Blue” which is a full length film available on Youtube. It’s the best documentary I have watched on the subjec because it lends credibility to the whole UFO phenomenon and proves the government cover-up of many sightings including the Roswell incident. The witnesses are all credible and some of the footage is amazing.

    Airplane with landing lights (that are also used during take off) on in the beginning, then turned off when a certain altitude is reached. FAA mandated red light on the left wing (right side when viewing head-on) and green light on the opposite with a center white strobe.

    Come on people… Its not like airplanes are new and unusual. When things that are obvious man made and operated aircraft are posted in headlines of “Shape shifting UFO!!!” all that does is support and perpetuate the deniers argument about “UFO Nutcases.”

    To me it looks 100% like an airplane after takeoff and turned off its headlight.
