I am not very active here, however, browse here every now and then. I believe my fiancee and I saw a UFO of some sort on Feb 25th 2018 at around 6PM.
My fiancee think's I'm crazy, yet she did see it, and says she doesn't have an answer on what it is.
A bit of a backstory, we were living out of a Toyota 4Runner about to travel through Baja Mexico. We were camped out in Coronado National
Forest(campsite coordiates: 31.857349, -110.002452). We had been living out of our 4Runner full time for about 2 months. On Feb 25th, the sunset was
starting to get quite reddish, and we decided to pack PBJ sandwiches and take a quick hike up to a hill top to watch it set. The direction we were
facing was directly towards Tombstone. To me, it looked liked it was potentially directly over the town, but it could have been anywhere between us,
and the mountain range we were looking at.
After about 15 minutes into the sunset(timing is estimated) I noticed something in the sky. At the first sighting I described it a orb/bell shaped
object, but later on started to think it was more of a batwing shape? The distance between us and the object made it difficult to preciously identify
it's shape. I was fixated on the object, not the sunset unlike my fiancee.
We sat at the mountain top for probably another 20-30minutes watching the sunset before returning to our campsite. During this time, I had my
mirrorless camera with a wide angle lens(samyang 12mm), and my smartphone(Nexus 5x). The phone was the ONLY thing that we had that could potentially
capture the object. Looking back on this, I really wish we immediately loaded up the car and started to drive towards it to investigate it, but alas,
living out of a car seems easy, but when you have everything you need to survive, the packing/unpacking process gets to be a bit of a pain.
We headed back to our campsite when it started to get darker, around 6:30-6:45pm i'd say. I got a fire going as it was getting chilly, but would walk
out to the round-a-bout area and check to see if I could still see the object. I sure enough did. It had been in the exact same spot for atleast 1
hour. By the time it was dark, I could no longer see it, we went to bed, and the next morning came around, it was no where to be in sight.
Anyways, I captured two images, one zoomed out and one zoomed in. Of course, the quality is that of the typical pixelated crap often found on the
internet. I really wish I had a telephoto lens during that time as well. Now my images taken with my phone were logging my position, so I have that
going for me atleast.
Here is a shared google album containing the two images that I took:
I have yet to find ANY news sources or any other reports on any sightings in the area and timing. I'm curious to know if anyone has any insight on
what this was? I am slightly believing it may be a military project?
PS - I dont know how to post photos directly to ATS :
