UFOs reported at ground level in small Ohio town

An Ohio witness at Canal Winchester reported watching a 50-foot-tall, cylinder-shaped UFO nearly land in his back yard that was soon joined by a group of similar-shaped objects, according to testimony in Case 62937 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was leaving a relative’s home after a family celebration when the first object was seen about 8:05 p.m. on January 25, 2015.

“I walked out the front door of the house and saw a bright, multicolored group of lights speeding toward me,” the witness stated. “I thought it must be an aircraft in trouble. I started screaming as the craft came into view seemingly instantly.”

The object hovered at the ground level and was described as a thin jar, but was easily 50 feet tall. Pictured: Canal Winchester, OH. (Credit: Google)

The witness described the object.

“It was shaped like a thin jar, but was easily 50 feet tall. It hovered very closely to the ground and the grass seemed to be pulled toward it instead of being pushed away. The grass wasn’t wavering though.”

The object then emitted a sound that affected the witness.

“All of a sudden a dull hum hit me and I couldn’t breathe. Then at least 40 or so similar-looking, smaller craft burst into the scene where they seemed to be very oddly chasing the larger craft.”

The witness then observed the smaller crafts moving inside the larger craft.

“The larger craft sucked the smaller crafts inside and then zipped off with a loud zoom or whoosh. It kind of sounded like a really loud dog bark.”

The witness stated that about 40 similar-looking, but smaller craft, also appeared and were sucked inside the larger craft. Pictured: Canal Winchester, OH. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

    Why is it that an encounter like the one witnessed above is only seen by one person or very few people at a time? Seems to me that something like this would have had more than one witness yet we have nobody asking questions. Would be nice if that data was included in these witness accounts.

    Not that surprising. I saw one in Kansas in 1969. It was mesmerizing and I was too young to drink!
