UFO witness report
Wednesday, July 27th 2005
Norfolk, Virginia USA
Oh how I love storm watching. The rumbling thunder and spectacular lightshows, to the pouring rain and endless candlelit games of charades during
power outages. On the evening of July 27th, 2005 at approximately 9:00pm, my girlfriend and I witnessed an object flying that was, and remains,
unidentified. Was its purpose to view the storm, or for the storm to help view it.
The anticipation of an ending record breaking “heat wave” had been felt all day. Finally these 100+ degree daytime highs were going to be crushed
by a cold front, resulting in large, severe thunderstorms. In fact, weather reports earlier in the day were claiming that the huge ban of
thunderstorms (from Texas to New England) were producing wind gusts up to 60mph, and large hail stones. As soon as I heard the emergency broadcast
alerts by means of television, I knew it was coming.
After a few rumbles of thunder were heard, I decided to head outside to spectate. It was about 8:45pm and the sun was set, yet there was still a
shimmer of light in western sky coming through the clouds of the oncoming storm. I sat in my usual spot on the deck steps. Our deck is roofed which
provides excellent storm watching without getting wet. My eyes were wondering back and forth between my 11mo old puppy playing in the yard and the
inconsistent flashes of lightning reflecting off neighboring houses. As I looked to my right, I noticed a bright star in between two parallel power
lines from my vantage point. It flickered violently between white and amber colors, just as a star rapidly twinkles in the distance…the object
didn’t appear to be moving at all and I thought to myself, maybe this is a planet because it seems much larger than even the largest, brightest
star. So there I was trying to decipher the object and realized that whatever it was seemed to be under the veil of storm clouds. There was no clear
patch in the clouds to peek at the humbling vastness of space. So as I watched this mysterious light in the sky, it became clear that it was moving.
I performed many visual tests with stationary objects (power lines) to make sure the object was moving. This went on for about two minutes before I
decided to ask my girlfriends opinion and grab my video camera. I began recording for a total of 6 minutes. The glowing object ever so slowly hovers
to my east and descends. There was approximately 4 more min of viewing before the object descends below the treeline and out of view. That are not in
this footage. As far as the objects actual size and distance I have no idea. At approximately 9:45 pm I decided to call the non-emergency line of one
of the Norfolk police depts. I asked the officer (or whomever answered my call) if there had been any reports of unidentified flying objects in the
area within the past hour or so. He said not at that particular station, but inquired about my sighting. I explained and his response was that a
logical explanation was that there is always a high amount of helicopter traffic from local tv stations etc in the area. I thanked the man for his
time and hung up. This object was NOT an airplane (although Norfolk International Airport is within about 7 miles from my location). The object was
definitely NOT a helicopter (my sister flies CH-46 helicopters for the navy and my father is a retired commander). There were no signs of any flashing
beacons. The object was NOT a star or planet due to its movement and location under the clouds. I am not 100% sure on the following topic of balls of
light appearing in storms due to the electrically charged atmosphere so I cant rule it out. More personal research will tell. Here is a video
capture in mpeg format from the original, non duplicated hi-8 sony video camera tape. The transfer appears darker than the original tape, but I
didn’t want to edit the picture quality in any way. The only editing done is a layer of text with date time location and my name. The most
exhilarating image however appears when I took a still photo of the image during the illumination of a lightning flash. I challenge all of you to
dissect this footage with my full cooperation to help in ANY WAY NECESSARY. I was privileged to witness this event and hope this footage can provide
some stepping stone closer to truth. This video was available but was almost 300mb!! So I will make a short clip shortly..check out next

thank you for your eyes, ears, and mind,
UFO witness report
To make a long story short, I was on the way with my girlfriend to her grandfathers house to help with some laundry when the same object witnessed 8
days prior, was spotted again, in roughly the same location. I thought at first I was just still amped from the last sighting and was transforming a
bright star into a UFO. Luckily the stoplight ahead just turned red so I had a minute to perform a movement test with a stationary telephone pole.
The object was indeed moving but I tried to convince myself that my head was moving ever so slightly to reveal the object from behind the pole.
We live only 2 miles from her grandfathers and were within a block from his house. The mild amber flicker the object emitted however was all to
familiar and fresh in my mind to take the chance of letting it go undocumented. I floored it, dropped my girlfriend off and sped back to my house to
grab the camcorder (and tripod this time!!). I still was very pessimistic. I flew back to the end of my girlfriends grandfathers street where there
just so happens to be a baseball field and park and set up to record.
There is a total of 12 minutes of footage, edited into a 5min clip of different vantage points. The object moves very slowly and descends into the
trees. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for there are many other details. I would also love to hear
feedback with possible explanations of what this object might be.
5min clip…100mb…long dl
1min clip 20mb…
Thanks for your interest
