The witness was outside assembling a kid’s swimming pool at 8:40 p.m. on May 27, 2016, when the incident occurred.

“I saw a black object coming towards my backyard that was flying close,” the witness stated. “I thought it was a motorized glider.”

As the object moved over the witnesses’ yard, he realized it was not a motorized glider.

“My son asked,‘Dad, what is that?’ I said,‘I have no idea of what it is.’ I said it’s an alien. The object made no noise. It was black.”

The witness asked his kids to go inside and get his wife.

“I really have no idea of what it is. I told my parents the next day I saw a weird object in the sky. The object was just floating in the sky and going northwest.”

The witness report indicates the object was moving less than 500 feet overhead. Ohio Field Investigator Joseph Pavlansky is investigating.

    Please help me! I am relieved that someone else has seen this. I saw this in 1968. I was 11 living along the I-71 corridor which was rural Mason, Ohio at the time. My parents didn’t believe me but when my grandfather saw it he informed them that it was hovering, no sound, no propulsion. I have searched for it forever. I even remember what it smelled like! Please, pleasr help me. Thank you.
