Child witness points to hovering UFO – ‘Look, Daddy’

A 2-year-old boy pointed to a UFO hovering under 500 feet saying, “Look, Daddy,” according to testimony from Longmont, CO, in Case 72981 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness was out walking with his son about 8:30 p.m. on March 21, 2015, when the object was first seen.

“I had this sudden urge to take my 2-year-old son outside for a walk to look at the stars,” the witness stated.“We left our apartment complex neighborhood and followed a path that leads into a darker, more secluded area with walkways and no street lights. This area is about a five-minute walk from our apartment. There are walking paths that follow alongside a small flowing stream and trees. Just a nice area to view the sky away from lights and buildings.”

The witness was carrying his son in his arms and walking when suddenly the child says, “Daddy, look,” and points up.

“Not directly above us, but up in front of us. I looked and pointed as well. What I saw shocked me.”

The witness described the object.

“It was barely visible. I could barely see it, but could notice a very, very, large wide V or chevron-shaped craft just hovering completely still. It was a very clear night no moon and the stars were clear. This thing blended in with the stars. It was completely still until a few seconds after we pointed at it, then it moved from east to west toward the Rocky Mountains directly over us.”

The witness says the object was somewhat transparent.

“I could see the stars in the sky through this craft. Almost as if it were glass or transparent. I only could see seven orange-yellowish circular lights under it as it flew over us. The lights were faded to the same brightness as the background stars, but were much larger. The transparency was exactly like the predator in the predator movie with Arnold. We could see just barely an outline and it somewhat distorted the stars in the sky above it as it moved.”

The witness provided more details on the object.

“It moved in a solid, straight path eastward. It was completely silent. No sound at all. It was hard to tell the size and altitude but I would say it was flying low, really low. Like 500 or less feet; maybe even 100 feet. I mean, it was right there close, gigantic in our face. It was bigger than our entire apartment building. We kept pointing and starring as it passed over us. It was hard to see when it was hovering, but easier to see as it moved over us and it faded as it kept moving west. Eventually it just blended in with the night sky the farther it flew away.”

The object did not behave like standard, known aircraft.

“There was no emission, no smoke or exhaust or afterburners or fire of any kind. Absolutely no sound at all the entire time. No blinking or flashing lights. Only the seven, circular, orange or yellowish lights underneath it. I couldn’t really tell if there was more of a shape to the craft, but I could kind of see it was a very wide V or chevron shape because of the transparent distortion of the background sky and the lights underneath.”

The event did scare the witness.

“I was frightened and so was my son. We just got out there and after seeing this we were both ready to just go home. I felt very frightened more than anything, because of the size and the invisible stealth-like qualities with no noise so close almost felt like we were being stalked. I also found it spooky that I had a sudden urge to go out there at that time. I have had a few other UFO encounters in the past few years. This was the scariest one. I was excited to see it, but It frightened me and my son. Not sure if we just happened to stumble upon some sort of secret military surveillance drone or if it was something else.”

Even though the sighting was frightening, the witness continued to explore the area.

“Even though we were both scared after witnessing it, I continued to walk further down the path and I also noticed headlights driving on the path that no public vehicles were allowed on. As we went further I was also aware of two SUVs that seemed out of place just parked with their headlights on the side of a road to our right as we went further down the walkway. There was also this green laser-like dot I could see moving away from us as we walked. I became fixated on it – wanting to know what it was. It was far ahead of us but in the obvious walking path area. It could have just been some person with a green laser or a very bright green light of some kind. And maybe the SUVs were just there parking to go to somebody’s house. I just had a strange sense about it all. It just did not logically match any known craft. Very spooky!”

This case is under investigation by Colorado Field STAR Team Investigator Randolph Eichelberg.

  1. “… Not sure if we just happened to stumble upon some sort of secret military surveillance drone or if it was something else.”

    Forget this devil’s advocacy. There are no human-made craft that can do this. Furthermore, why would they?

  2. Hey Billy, I think the only one who is playing devil’s advocacy is you and your ignorant assumption that this sighting is an extraterrestrial craft. I bet you the real witness is leaning more torward this being a man made military surveillance stealth craft of some kind. your comment is so stupid you must either be a government disinformation agent trying to convince everyone that no humans have this technology, or you are just real ignorant to any of the ufo subject matter and the history of military technology.

    First of let me just explain a little about aircraft stealth technology and it’s history. Look at Lockheed Martin Skunkworks SR-71 Blackbird. This insane aircraft that still impresses to this day was on the drawing boards in the early fifties and earlier as a replacement for the U-2 Spyplane. Most of the information on this craft was kept secret under classified programs. Get it…Classified. There is such a thing as black budget top secret and above programs that require high security clearances and oaths of secrecy. Look at the Manhattan Project where they were working with the atomic bomb back in the 1940’s. Again at the time this was all secret testing, secret military technology. So to say things like there are no human-made craft that can do this is ridiculous. It’s 2015 imagine what secrets they have now. Not all technolgy is out in the open for all the world to know. Yet still there is a lot that is out in the open. You can find it if you actually research the subject you are commenting on.

    First off there are many examples I could list here of companies and university studies that proove that invisibility cloaking is a reality. In fact it has already been perfected. Hyperstealth is a successful Canadian camouflage design company with over two million military issued uniforms and over 3000 vehicles and fighter jets using their patterns around the world. Quantum stealth is a material that renders the target completely invisible by bending light waves around the target. The material removes not only your visual, infrared, and thermal signatures but also the target’s shadow. There have recently been other university studies testing invisibility cloaking material. This is just recent known to the public technology exposed. Usually the military has had for a long time before the public ever hears about it.

    Now the subject of completely silent flight of giant craft that seem to defy gravity and can hover in place and move off completely silent and undetected is a little trickier to research. There isn’t a lot out there available to look at and understand. There are silencing technologies being developed and have been developed for decades. Also there are new unknown secret classified propulsion systems unlike jet engines that are silent. Most of this is secret, but every now and then information leaks out. You just have to go looking into it.

    Now your insane question of why would they? That is just the dumbest question ever. I’m not even going to answer that. The military and even law enforcement have been interested in silent invisible stealth technology for some time now. Just use your brain to understand why.

    I’m not saying there is no such thing as real extraterrestrial craft. There is enough evidence and testimony of this fom high ranking military and high credential people in highly respected occupations from FAA supervisors to Police officers to commanders in charge of nuclear weapons. There are real life accounts of other wordly encounters. I’m just saying you can”t always assume every strange unbelievable technological craft sightings are from aliens.

    Now the Author of this article just happens to miss one thing about Longmont that I believe may be the reason for all the clusters of ufo sightings in and around the area. Yes there are a lot of military bases in Colorado including NORAD. And in Longmont there’s something right in the backyard that is so mysterious that it could be actually attracting craft of unknown origin to the area or maybe some of the craft seen are a part of the projects going on there. Table Mountain is located just west near the outskirts of town straight down Nelson Rd. It is designated as one of only two radio quet zones in the country. The property is owned by the US government and is told to the public that it is mainly used for testing of sensitive radio and electromagnetic devices. Federal researchers test new antenna technology and prototypes at the site. They study radio emmisions from satellites and astrological sources such as the sun. The site became a High Altitude Nuclear Detection Studies facility as part of a program initiated by ARPA and DARPA. Advanced Research Projects Agency and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency are government think tanks with unlimited power and unlimited funds that invented the internet initially as a spy tool. Early techniques for detecting nuclear detonations in the atmosphere were researched at Table Mountain.

    The Deep Space Exploration Society, a local nonprofit group who have used table mountain to restore and upgrade the dish antennas, were hoping to use the site to study radio signals from deep space. They volunteered their time and donated resources for the upgrades in around 1991. They were denied access to the site around 2010. So who the hell knows what is really going on there. This site could be involved in some really deep covert black budget programs and who knows what they are into. It could very well be attracting ufos to the area. Maybe this large V shaped stealth craft is some tool they use or some experiment they are working on. Who knows.

  3. Billy,

    Where is the conspiracy in any of the facts I have stated above? Using the label conspiracy theorist with no backing and completely out of context is just a dumb tactic used by somebody losing an argument with no backing and just making outragous claims formed from opinion. You are refuting facts on top of being incapable of abstract thinking. Look up the definition of conspiracy theorist. How does that label apply to any of this?

  4. My first comment above simply implies that the witness’ description does not conform to a man-made craft. Then ZEAK wrote a “book” in rebuttal, because he is a typical conspiracy theorist.

    The theorist believes the US has secret weapons that can perform magical maneuvers – silently levitate, invisibly cloak, shoot through the air at 10,000-mph, fade away and so forth. They live in a world where “black-operations” stunts are dangerously performed over American cities. Conversely, any participation by an alien presence is seen as either non-existent or insignificant (Read ZEAK’s comments).

    If ZEAK’s fantastic US weapons actually existed, we could have gotten Osama bin Laden without losing a helicopter and risking the mission. The US would simply have sent a reverse-engineered flying saucer into Pakistan, hovered over the compound, beamed Osama up through the roof and whisked him back within minutes to stand trial in NYC. Unfortunately, they only exist in the mind of the conspiracy theorist.

    The conspiracy theorist is attracted to UFO websites and performs a severe dysfunction by “explaining” alien craft as man-made and therefore, not worthy of further research.

  5. Billy Bily Billy,

    Relax it’s ok..everything will be ok. I originally commented on your boastful claim stating that you seem to know that the witness is playing devil’s advocate and that there are no human made craft that can do what the witness is saying. If I see something outrageous like your comment posted public for all the world to see, then I will argue against it simplying to state that there is another possibility to what the witness has seen besides your simple narrow pre conceived biased opinion. I wrote a “book” simply backing up the claims I made regarding the existence of some of the technology decribed by the witness that is man made such as invisibility cloaking. If you are going to continue to just ignore the evidence that I brought forth to the conversation regarding technology that exists, then your whole commenting and arguement is weak. Like I said before, the information is out there. And not all of it is out there for us all to see. I haven’t said anything against the existence of extraterrestrials or the craft they operate. In fact I strongly believe that there are extraterrestrials/ interdimensional/ and even possibly a break away civilization that has always been here on Earth with High technology. I have seen enough testimony from credible people that have had strange encounters with creatures operating crafts and the military retrieving these crafts to actually believe this stuff is real. So your comments about me saying that aliens are non existent or insignificant are completely false. I’m simply saying that not all sightings are aliens.

    Your conspiracy theorist comment is not valid here. And your latest comment is riddled with made up stuff that I never said nor did the author or the wiitness say. At no pont in any of the comments or the witness testimony is there any indication of the speed the craft was traveling.Yet somehow you seem to think it was magical how it shot through the air at 10,000 mph. It was also magical how at night when it is dark with no moon that a transparent craft, with no lights except under its belly, moving away, can fade into the night sky. That is so magical that no human technology allows it. Again stating that invisibilty cloaking, which exists, is magical. And speaking of helicopters, are you aware that technology exists, that is not alien, to silence helicopters? oh but wait..why would they do that duh duh?? HUH??

    At no point did the witness mention any light beams coming out of it lifting objects into it. The craft the witness describes is a large chevron or wide V shaped. Not saucer. Yet you use saucer in your stupid explanation of why wouldn’t the Us get Osama. Let’s just say for the sake of argument that the US has saucers with Tractor beams. Do you honestly think you are going to hear about it on CNN or Fox news or any mainstream news outlet? Like I said before not everything is out in the public view. How hard is it to understand that?? But I guess that makes me a conspiracy theorist, because CNN didn’t tell you it exists. My point is that Osama being caught that way would never be told to the public ever. Because it involves classified secret technology and military and defense capabilities. So yes read my comments and read the damn article and the witness testimony and understand what is being said instead of just making stuff up.

    SO you are saying you think that this craft is absolutlely alien and not man made at all. But you do not believe that the military has retrieved any of these crafts in the past 70 years. That there are no stories and no accounts and no testimonies that refer to ground retrieval teams of ufos and Extraterrestrial Biological Entities. So let me ask you this. Just how much do you know about the UFO subject? Have you ever done any real research into the subject??

    You are also saying that black operations don’t exist either and that they are a made up lie from dellusional conspiracy theorists.

    Your position is close minded and too simple. You are unwilling to accept facts and evidence. Your statements regarding conspiracy theorists are dellusional. SO I guess according to you I must also not believe we landed on the moon. How dare you assume anything of me. You know nothing of who I am and your cowardly labeling conspiracy theorists is coming from an emotional place from your mind created self in which you indentify with based on your percieved reality from mainstream news and whatever insanity you make up and from misunderstanding what people say and write. Your original comment is not based on any fact based scientific research or knowledge of anything except the biased pre concieved position on UFOs. I comment from no position. Only from the witness testimony and I simply state that it is possible that this could be a man made craft. It might not be..who the hell knows, anything is possible. But at least I can admit that. Your lasst comment eneded with such a ridiculous staement saying that alien craft being explained ads man made is a severe dysfunction from a conspiracy theorist and is not worthy of further research. This makes no sense really. You have no idea of the amount of research I or anyone has done on any subject. This jus t sounds like an emotional response that clearly fogs your judgement.

    Anyway. I am done commenting on this article. Obviously there is no point in saying anything logical to you. I’m sure others reading will see where the comment section is going. Good luck to you Billy and your outrageous commenting on subjects and your weak come backs from others challenging your position.

    It was fun. Good bye and thank you,

  6. Zeak – are you smoking something by chance? Billy is playing the mickey and you fell for it hook, line and sinker. He’s been sarcastic genius – essentially he probably believes this claim less than you do, you keyboard warrior you. Do the world a favor kid and stop hiding under your grandmother’s basement stairs – get out, breathe in some fresh air, get a bit of sun… it’ll do you some serious good.

  7. Northrop Grumman

    TR6 Telos used as a transatmospheric, low observable reconnaissance platform with global reach and long loiter time over target. The skin employs active visual camouflage using a starfield lighting pattern and “other” active stealth techniques ( invisibility cloaking )

    The Telos platform is also capable of operating in space as well as docking with military space stations via a ventral docking hatch.

  8. Notice that “ZEAK” and “sammy” have the same light green logo.

    These “two” conspiracy theorists must share the same computer, and the same military-industrial complex.
