Location:  Stubbington Hampshire
Time:  Started at 4:45pm now they come around 9:00pm
Summary:  Two incandescent Purple and Red lights seen many times these past two weeks in our area they occasionally turn red before descending then return to purple again ascending. They have been observed by myself and a work college to briefly turn Purely Green for a very short period before returning to Purple and Red again They are mostly Purple (LEDish light) with a Red streak running through their mid section On the last sighting on the 7th my college recorded a video with three of these objects but that was the first time we have seen three prior to that only two have been observed.They are very luminescent purple and red and sometimes before descending they turn pure red. On occasion they flash pure green. Once we witnessed three flash green simultaneously. They started out with just two now the come in threes and fours.

Date:  January 2 2017
Location:  Cole Valley Road, Yardley Wood, Birmingham
Time:  12.35am
Summary:  At 12.35am early on the morning of 2nd January 2017, Nigel was outside his house on Cole Valley Road, Yardley Wood, Birmingham. It was a clear, still and dry night, with the stars and moon fully visible. Looking to the South he noticed an object moving quickly in his direction. It appeared to be very large and tubular/cylindrical in shape. The main body of the object was quite hard to see due to the darkness. Along one side of it appeared to be between 6-8 square shaped panels or windows, which emitted a dull orange/reddish coloured glow. The panels were equally spaced out along the length of the object. It appeared to be flying at a height of 300-400 feet, about the same height a helicopter would fly at. Nigel estimates it was about the same size as a cruise liner aircraft.

The UFO moved extremely fast on a straight and level course. Within seconds it had reached his location. It passed over the roof of his house, then turned to the left and headed off in the direction of Kings Norton to the West. It vanished into the distance within 10-15 seconds. Nigel was convinced he had witnessed something extremely unusual.

Sighting Analysis

When the witness first contacted me about the sighting via E-Mail, my initial thought was that it may have been a launch of multiple Chinese lanterns which were drifting on an air current in a straight line, giving the impression of a single larger object with glowing “windows”. However when I suggested this to Nigel he was adamant that it definitely wasn’t these. He has seen lanterns before and knows exactly what they look like. He says the panels/windows were exact squares and precisely level with one another. He was also able to see the main body of the object around them, it was clearly a single object rather than multiple. It was also travelling much too fast to be lanterns drifting across the sky.

If it was not lanterns then what else could it have been? It was definitely not a normal aircraft as no wings, tail or navigation lights were visible. Solar airships are cylindrical in shape and usually black or dark coloured. However these only ascend during sunny daylight and the sighting took place in the middle of the night. Also they do not have glowing panels along them. The size and speed of the object also make it unlikely that it was a radio controlled model of some kind or a novelty LED balloon.

With none of these possibilities sufficiently able to explain the sighting, we are left with the very real possibility that this was a genuine sighting of an advanced craft, one that appeared to be under intelligent control. The witness was quite surprised that nobody else had reported seeing it. If any further information does come to light, this report will be updated.

Date:  January 2 2017
Location:  Bexhill on sea
Time:  7 pm
Summary:   I had just come out of a nursing home after visiting my fiends father with her. the moon was shining brightly and the night was very clear. I was looking at the moon and a red light caught my attention from the right. as I looked at it there were three more in a perfect horizontal line and equally spaced travelling behind it, we both watched them as they travelled directly across our vision until one by one they disappeared as they arrived directly under the moon, a fifth red light further back caught our eye. also moving in the same direction, My friend caught a photo of that but sadly I dont have a copy yet , looking at her photo once we got into the car we ‘opened’ it up by zooming in to discover an oval shaped object with bright lights through the middle. there was no sound, no vapour trail just this silent object. it too vanished once it got directly under the moon, as though it were going through a door. The silence was eerie with no sounds at all, no cars, no wind noise, no tree’s rustling, in fact in was like time stood still except these objects moved through the sky. there were no flashing lights just bright red objects that looked like they could be plucked from the sky. Planes make noises of some sort, so do drones etc. birds are not perfectly round and bright red. Can’t explain it but I know what I saw. Witness Name: Jax

Date:  January 4 2017
Location:  Exmouth in Devon England
Time:  shortly after 1pm
Summary:  Above Image: Tyron Osborne snapped the rare sight shortly after 1pm on Wednesday (Picture: Tyron Osborne/Facebook) A ‘flaming UFO’ has been spotted soaring above Exmouth in Devon. At least that’s what this musician claims he saw shortly after 1pm on Wednesday. According to Mark Emmins, the oval-shaped luminous object appeared in the sky and remained there for about three hours. His friend, Tyron Osborne, snapped the rare sight as the pair looked on in amazement, convinced it was a UFO.
The rare object remained in the sky for three hours (Picture: Tyron Osborne/Facebook)

Posting pictures online, Mark wrote: ‘Today for the second time in my life I can honestly say that myself and my neighbour watched a UFO. ‘It was stood still in the sky for some hours and then decided to move and then vanish. We got photos too.’ The object, which is most likely not a UFO, was initially dismissed as a star, but Mark insists he later windows on it. He said: ‘If you look closely you can see what appears to be windows. I have never seen anything like this. His post led to dozens of people speculating at what it could be (Picture: Tyron Osborne/Facebook)
‘As for believing in aliens, I’ve always thought we are not alone in the universe and hoped to see something that would make me believe they would visit us. ‘I didn’t expect it to actually happen.’ Mark believes the object came from the US after he noticed it was traveling east from Dawlish. His post led to dozens of people speculating at what it could be, with most people saying it was probably not a UFO. Wendy Seaman wrote: ‘Looks like the Enterprise. Are you sure it wasn’t a satellite, one goes over about 4ish daily. When its a clear day you can see it clearly.’ Paul Oxenham said: ‘It could have been someone’s drone.’ But Steph Pommier wasn’t going to put it off that easily, writing: ‘UFOs have been spotted since the beginning of Man. Just accept it. We cannot know nor control everything.’

Date:  January 402017
Location:  Lower Austria
Time:  about 10:30 p.m.
Summary:  The witness was driving home with two friends on January 4, 2017, when the incident began. “During the drive, we spoke almost nothing,” the witness stated.“It was about 10:30 p.m. and completely dark. Then we drove a path that was very deserted and also secluded. Without having thought something, I looked up into the dark sky and all of a sudden I saw three very bright light objects that floated very slowly, turned in a kind of circle pattern, and remained standing in the air.” The three were very impressed by the objects and decided to stop and investigate. “We left the car and I tried with my phone to film these objects. Except for the chirping of insects in the nearby forest and far-away cars, it was deathly silent. So the three light objects made absolutely no noise. Unfortunately, I could shoot the three pulsating light objects on film for only a very short time because I had little space on my phone. And my friend, Franz, unfortunately has an older phone without a camera. Also, Gernot’s phone is older too. I was filming these three objects about 40 Seconds. After this 40 seconds of filming, we watched these three objects about 3-4 minutes before this object then just disappeared. Like turning off a Light. Actually, I’m skeptical about these things before, but after this scary event, I’m much more open to alien things/UFOs/extraterrestrials and so on. I hope that they perhaps can find out what it is/was.”

Date:  January 8 2017
Location:  Las Vegas, Nevada
Time:  
Summary:  The end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 have been strange here in Las Vegas. I don’t remember a time where we had so much wind and rain. Between November of 2016 and now I have only had a few opportunities to get outside to do some skywatching and last night was one of them. I got video from Nellis, Henderson and a short night vision clip from the Blue Diamond Hills and the Southern Valley. This video is just Nellis. In parts of the video, you can see it hasn’t been very warm here because you can see heat waves from somebody’s home distorting the objects I am filming. I didn’t speed this video up at all so that you could witness these incredible objects just like I do. When one of my videos is really good the tabloids get hold of them and make up all kinds of stories to go along with them. To date, not one of the tabloids has ever tried contacting me to get the real facts and that really bugs me. All along I have said that I don’t know exactly what these are and I would never make an “as a matter of fact” claim that these are anything other than amazing technology that is being systematically withheld from us. My hope is that one day soon I will be able to tell you exactly what they are but until that happens they are just amazing aerial objects that defy plausible explanations. Author (Steven Barone @ youtube)

Date:  January 9 2017
Location:  Gosport, UK
Time:   22.50
Summary:  3 lights flying randomly side to side, up and down, forming triangles, seemed random flight paths. I work as a cleaner, I went outside at 22.50 to dispose of rubbish bags into a bin and noticed 3 green lights at around a 30 degree angle north-west of my position. Distance and height were too difficult to estimate from my position but after checking on google maps there are mostly only fields in that direction. The postcode I observed from was PO13 0HR. The lights were evenly spaced in a large triangle formation with one more forward than the others when I first noticed them. They then all turned purple and started to move. You can observe in the video how them moved. I had full zoom using a phone camera so quality isn’t great but they were all bright purple in colour and didn’t change again. They seemed to move in a random manor, moving side to side and up and down very quickly and turning very sharply. They would pass each other to swap sides, sometimes coming back to form triangles for a few seconds before moving again. Several times it looked as though one moved into another and became one light before breaking apart again. They disappeared below the houses several times so that I couldn’t see from my position what they were doing until the final time when I waited several minutes before giving up that they wouldn’t appear again so whatever it was possibly landed because they didn’t appear above the houses again. I went back inside the building onto the second level to view from a higher angle and could see one light again just above the house but it quickly disappeared downwards and that was the last I saw of them. They never went higher than the initial height I observed them at.

There were no other aircraft I noticed in the area although there is a small airfield behind my position. The weather was dry (although rain earlier in the day), the sky seemed clear, stars were visible overhead but none visible at the angle/height of these lights, presumably because of light pollution. When I left where I was 30 minutes later, the sky around the area where the lights were was a hazy red colour. The rest of the sky in the surrounding area was black but this area specifically was a different colour. I thought this might be some kind of heavy light pollution in that direction but according to google maps there are mostly just fields there, nothing that would give off unusual light pollution.

Date:  January 10 2017
Location:  Kentucky/Ohio Area
Time:  
Summary:  Earlier this year I interviewed a witness who had a strange encounter in the Kentucky/Ohio area. The witness was driving east bound on Route 52 on a desolate area of road, about a ¼ mile from the Ohio River. It is my understanding this took place around the Ohio/Kentucky border in the vicinity of Ashland, Kentucky. That evening there was a cold, misty rain occurring with few cars on the road. Suddenly only about 35-40 feet off the ground, the driver observed a silhouette in the approaching traffic lights and then from the headlights of his vehicle what appeared to be a large humanoid creature with huge wingspan. The witness described the humanoid body as about 5 to 5½ feet long. The skin color was dark tan, not black or brown. The wings of the creature were estimated to have a wingspan of 12-15 feet and no feathers were observed on the body only what appeared to be skin. The witness only observed the creature for several seconds as it approached him and passed overhead. The man stated that he never saw the wings flap, and that the wings were spread out. He did notice that the joints of the wings were very pronounced, that the legs were held together and held back, and that the arms were held along the side of the body and extended to around the thighs. The witness heard no sound during the few seconds that he observed the winged creature.

Date:  January 13 2017
Location:   Pakenham, Ontario
Time:   7:48 pm to 8:03 pm
Summary:  I have been taking trail camera pictures of the wildlife in my backyard for over 6 years. i am using a bushnell trail camera. i noticed in three pictures on january 13 at 7:48pm to 8:03pm a very bright light moving over or within the tree tops. when viewed in quick sequence you can clearly see the path of the object. it appears to have individual lights on it when i zoom in using my laptop software. i have had this camera in the same location for years and can show thousands of day and night time pictures from this exact spot. the object appears in the first picture at 7:48pm. the second picture at 7:52pm the object has moved a little closer and you can see the individual lights better. the third picture at 8:03pm the object seems to be moving up and away to the top right of the frame. i worked as a restricted radio operator and a weather observer at an airport in the high arctic. i am used to identifying aircraft and weather phenomena. the object is hovering for 15 minutes so this is not a plane. there are no navigation lights that i can see nore did i hear a helicopter hovering over my back yard for 15 minutes. i have never seen any civilian or military helicopters acting in this fashion and there is nothing but forest below the object at this time and location. a drone comes to mind however this is a very bad location to be flying a drone over the forest and at night. there is nothing there but trees and i know the two closest neighbors and they do not own or fly drones at all. the nearest house other than mine and my two neighbors would be unlikely to fly a drone that far away,blind over the forest hovering for 15 minutes with powerful lights shining into the trees. it is hard to tell the size of the object but it appears to be large but i’m not sure. it makes no sense to me after all these years of taking pictures from this exact spot that someone would be flying a drone here at that time at night over the forest for 15 minutes. why my camera started taking picture is strange in its self. i would be happy to explain more as there is much more to tell. if you have any questions please ask. the camera will remain right where it is. thank you.

Date:  January 16 2017
Location:  Everett, Washington
Time:  7:20 in the morning
Summary:  Footage showing three UFOs forming a sustained triangle formation has brought excitement among UFO investigators. The incident reportedly happened over a remote U.S. farmland in Everett, Washington. The sighting of these unidentified flying objects was reported to Mutual UFO Network, which currently investigating the case. The strange event occurred at 7:20 in the morning on January 16 when the witness was walking through fields to assess tide flats for duck hunting. The unnamed witness claimed to have seen three white, blinking lights to the south in a triangular formation. He managed to take photos and videos, which he submitted to MUFON together with his report for further investigation. Tim Ward, MUFON Washington state section director, is currently investigating the case. The witness said that the lights could be aircraft, but he was not very certain about it. He expected the formation to break, but it remained intact longer than any planes. The report was submitted to MUFON on February 20. MUFON communications director Roger Marsh reminded everyone that most UFO sightings could be explained as something human-made or natural. Some skeptics believe that planes circling and waiting to land can sometimes appear to have created a formation.

Location:  Bedford UK
Time:  18:15
Summary:  While walking to the chip shop, both myself and my 5 year old son witnessed a number of star like lights moving across the sky in a peculiar fashion. At first I thought it was a flock of birds, but it was pitch black and they appeared to be much higher and moved in and out of different formations. They broke off into 2 groups and formed 2 diamonds, then joined together on a straight line, formed a large V and then began to split off into pairs which rotated around each other. All the time while continuing to move in the same direction until they disappeared behind rooftops and we could no longer see them. I have no idea what they were, I’ve never seen anything like it in my life and my son was terrified!

Date:  January 19 2017
Location:  Titusville Florida
Time:  around 8 in the evening
Summary:  An unnamed witness at Titusville in Florida reported seeing an oval-shaped flying across the sky shrouded in what she described a bright, meteor-like light while waiting for the launch of an Atlas V rocket. The report is filed in Case 81674 in the witness reporting database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). According to the report, the strange event took place on January 19, 2017, at around 8 in the evening. The reporting witness, together with her husband, was in the viewing bleachers for the Atlas V rocket launch, which carries a missile-detecting satellite. The witness said that it came to her mind that UFOs sometimes show in launches, so she decided to look at the sky while standing in the bleachers. She looked towards the east when she spotted nearby a brilliant, yellow-green, wide light.  She yelled to call the attention of some other people sitting in the bleachers, but the UFO was so fast that many had missed it. She said that the woman behind her thought it was just a meteor. However, she was convinced there was something in it. Just before the streak of light disappeared, the reporting witness claimed she saw part of something metallic with a seam and shape that was rounded. However, she only observed a small part of the object as the yellow/green light obscured most areas. The launch was canceled because of a wayward aircraft in the rocket’s flight path. They all got on the buses and left, but she was still filled with excitement as she believed she had a UFO sighting. She reportedly checked the internet and could not find any record of a meteor when she noticed the UFO.

Date:  January 19 2017
Location:  Eastern Portsmouth UK
Time:  1920 to 1930
Summary:   Returning from Bognor after dropping my wife at work (Nurse), o was driving east along A27 approx between Bedhampton & Farlington. I was facing almost due east as Venus was directly ahead. Appearing from ‘nowhere’ travelling very fast and low from north to south was a very large white ball with a long tapering white tail. It appeared in tact with no signs of breaking up or orange type emissions, suggesting it being on fire. Otherwise it had the appearance of a meteor, but in my view was too large and too low. It was descending at about a 30 degree angle from the ground and disappeared in the direction of approx. eastern/southern Portsmouth. It was maybe approx. 1/2 to one mile away and around 200 to 500 feet high as I observed it for around 1-2 seconds. IF it was a meteor it would have made a very serious impact, setting fire to its landing place ….no reports of such an impact have been recorded to date. It was too large to be ignored.

Location:  Fleet, Hants
Time:  9PM
Summary:   I was looking skyward, watching a small plane across the night sky, as my dog had barked. My neighbours garden is lit skyward. The plane was heading NW when in my peripheral vision, from E to W a dark object went past at speed. It was about 100 – 200 feet up, no lights but the base was lit somewhat by my neighbours lighting. Too fast for a bird and not the impression I got. A solid dark object, with what seemed to be a square’ish bottom, possible it had triangular orientations about it though. It happened so fast. A UFO in that I can’t be sure it isn’t man made. Not a drone from the high street as it was solid with no detectable camera function. Witness Name:Carolyn Gray

Location:  Las Vegas, Nevada
Time:  night
Summary:  shot this video from my backyard in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada on the night of January 28, 2017. They could have been brighter at times but I was very happy to see that a group of UFOs had returned to the Black Mountains in Henderson, Nevada. It has been six months or so since I last observed UFOs in groups over in this spot. I left the video running at actual speed even though it’s more than thirty minutes long because of suggestions I have been getting from viewers. It should have occurred to me to turn the night vision camera on earlier. No doubt some folks will claim that these are ATVs moving around on the mountain but they aren’t. What gives that away is the fact that the UFOs are lining up in a perfectly horizontal row on several occasions which would be nearly impossible if they were on the ground because the terrain on the mountain is so uneven. I think that there is an excellent possibility that these UFOs belong to the same group I film regularly in the Blue Diamond Hills on the west side of the valley closer to my home.
