A Washington D.C. witness reported watching and photographing a “worm-like” object hovering in the sky under 40 feet that could not immediately be identified, according to testimony in Case 79569 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was walking home in northwest D.C. at 11 a.m. on October 2, 2016, when the object was noticed in the sky.
“I noticed a strange object hovering in the sky, about 30-40 feet up, across the street from me, maybe a total distance of 60-70 feet between myself and the object,” the witness stated.“The object was unlike anything I’ve ever seen.”
The witness described the object.
“It was a dark, worm-like shape and it hovered in the same position for roughly three minutes while I was able to take photos. At first I thought it could have been an unusual entanglement of those narrow balloons used to make balloon animals, however, I don’t believe they could have floated in this position with helium. The object moved only slightly, despite a breeze which would have greatly moved even an anchored balloon. No wire, ribbon or any kind of string was present.”
The witness quickly lost sight of the object.
“As I ran around the corner to try and get right underneath it, I could not find it.”

My fiancee n i were sittin out front of our apartment two weeks ago in southeast D.c. and saw the a very similar object to the north underneath the flight path of the plants that have to skirt the city being as thst dc is a no fly zone…
It’s very obvious. Took me 2 seconds to see that it’s large number/letter ballons.
FOR REAL!!! There’s a giant floating number two!!
When I presented the same anomaly, it was disputed? http://ufodc.com/page%2013.html
I saw something exactly like this in Sterling, Illinois this past summer. It was large and about 1000 feet in the air. It was moving north to south but the wind that day was frim the east. It traveled in a perfectly straight line, undulating and turning and morphing the whole way until it was out of sight. I didn’t even think to grab my phone to video or photograph. I couldn’t wrap my head around it. But I did get someone’s attention 20 seconds before it was out of sight. At least I have another witness, because nobody I tell believes me.
