A Newburgh, NY, witness reported videotaping a round UFO on a security DVR system, according to testimony in Case 59920 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness has four cameras set up outside for sky watching and data is analyzed the following day after all the footage is recorded using a Security DVR.
“On the evening of September 16, 2014, at approximately 9:08 p.m. EST, a round, circular object was seen on Camera 4 moving from the east to west directly overhead,” the witness stated.
“This lasted approximately 11 seconds.”
The witness described the object.
“The object was near or at cloud level, left no visible trail and had no navigation lights. The object was quite large and when it passed through or close to clouds, it created a round, tight ring around it. It seemed to be rotating due to the tight ring of clouds that surrounded it.”
The witness also mentioned one unusual characteristic of the object.
“It also seemed to be emitting some type of energy or particles as it traveled to the west. It made no sound and the camera lost the object after it moved out of view.”
The witness uploaded one video with the MUFON report, which was filed on September 19, 2014.
