Shape-shifting UFO reportedly deadens sound around witness

An Idaho witness at Idaho Falls reported watching and photographing a fire-colored, shape-shifting object that seemed to silence natural sounds in the area when it passed over, according to testimony in Case 81932 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was inside meditating when a sibling came inside to alert family that an unknown object was moving towards the house.

“While I was getting ready to go outside, my two nephews were already outside, and one of them turned on his phone camera to take video,” the witness stated. “But he said the phone kept giving him an error when trying to take video. He switched to take pictures and he managed to take four images of the object.”

The witness went outside and was informed by the nephews that the object could be seen in the northwest sky.

“I saw the object when it was leaving. It had a very intense red and orange color to it – very bright. My nephew was the one who took the images. He told me the object, before passing over the house,that it remained a sphere shape, but once it passed over the house it started to change shape. He said, ‘The closest thing that this can resemble is one of those light sabers from that movie “StarWars.”’ It had that same effect. It would stretch. It would go from a sphere to a cigar shape and once it passed the house it went back to just being a sphere. He said all around the object there was this wave-like pattern of fire.”

The witness also noticed changes in the immediate area as the UFO moved over.

“Everything went super silent while the object passed by – no bird sounds, no wind sound, no car sounds, nothing. Just silence and this effect of sound cancelling was only when the object was passing over the house and everything went back to normal once the object left.”

    I was awake all night last night. When I watch videos on my iPad, I have to prop it up at my windowsill (window always open) to get the wi-if signal at full coverage. I live in St. Petersburg, FL and the chemtrailing is ridiculously heavy here – I truly thought the current admin was supposed to have this crap stopped once and for all (yeah, I know, I’m dumb). Anyway, it rained like the dickens around 2am with severe lightning and some of the loudest thunder I have ever heard. Right before the (beautifully radiated and tons of nano-particulates) rain fell, I too noticed that there was absolutely no sound whatsoever. My iPad, frequently, likes to sort of jump off the windowsill and fall on floor for some reason and so it did last night before the noise cancelling but when I picked it up and fired it back up again, the wi-if connection was dead. Then the total silence happened and I had the strangest feeling come over me, like I was stuck in a dream where time stood still, almost like feeling like the veil had come down. So bizarre…..(sigh)

    Hi, in 1993 here in our backyard in Dandenong, Australia myself and 6 other people witnessed a n incredibly strange light very similar to what the people at Idaho falls saw.. the one we saw was the strangest colour orange I had ever seen , I can only describe it as having an ‘Alive feeling about it”..a living colour..? and it had a halo all around it that moved a bit like an electric field around it… it was such a brilliant light and was just gliding along over some houses around here then it shot over to us in a blink of the eye and hovered above our heads.. we couldn’t see what was behind the light as it was too bright..it was both unnerving and exciting but there was no sound at all coming from the object and now that I look back, it seems that everything else around us became very quiet as well.. the calm, warm, spring night went to a totally silent night almost as if the light or craft had somehow silenced the sounds around it and us…? I will never forget the night and I still think about it all the time.. we knew that it wasn’t a drone, plane, helicopter , kite or blimp
    totally strange as it flew off in the blink of an eye and went straight up leaving a white trail behind it.. I’ve never seen anything move that fast on earth…something is up in our skies and I want to know what they are..strangely as it left us I got a wonderful feeling of pure joy..can’t describe it really…an awesome experience to say the least.

    wow this is really an incredibly sighting, there really is nothing conventional that could come close to explaining this. Its just baffling, what in the hell is it? I’m quite jealous of those who got to witness it.

    A very unusual event happened a few years ago, there was a very strange humming sound that neemed to be connected with a visit from some coyotes that were in our vicinity (close to the NASA buildings) May I add as the Coyotes were howling+ this humming+vibration this all the while in the dead of night, the whole event seemed to be some sort of communication going on between the two, being out in the desert things seemed to be quite unusual, as though the Coyotes were communication with another prescence
    woke me from sleep, fact, but fairly certain this was no dream.
