Florida witness says silent UFO ‘cloaked itself’

A Florida witness at St. Augustine recalled events from 2013 when a “large, black, boomerang craft with five large, glowing lights” silently moved overhead and disappeared as though it cloaked itself, according to testimony in Case 64134 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The events began about 10:15 p.m. on December 12, 2013, when a friend and his girlfriend stopped over and pointed out strange lights in the sky. The friend described the lights as greenish in color moving across the sky at a fairly low altitude appearing and reappearing several times.

The reporting witness quizzed his friend on exactly what was seen, but at first saw nothing in the sky. Eventually the friend was about to leave and they stepped outside.

“I first saw the pair of them and almost immediately after – there it was,” the witness stated. “A very large, dark, craft, boomerang in shape but with sharp edges. There were five large, dimly glowing, yellowish lights underneath the craft with the middle one where the front would be and two on the sides, but all underneath.”

The witness described what he was seeing.

“It made no sound, and the best description of the way it looked against the night sky was like how in the movie ‘Predator,’ when he (the Predator) would be cloaked in the trees, you really wouldn’t be able to see him except if he moved. Well, that’s how this craft looked against the night sky. You could see the edges, but only because it was moving, and slowly at that.”

The witness described the lights on the object.

“As for the lights, they were glowing with a slight pulse, bright but very faint at the same time, but large. It traveled slowly in plain sight and as weird as it sounds, it just disappeared – totally where it should have still been visible, but just wasn’t.”

The sighting was very quick.

“This whole ordeal lasted only 20 seconds or so, but made a very big impact on me. I wrote the date down onto my desk and even called my friend after we freaked out on what we had just seen and had him tell me exactly what he saw as if I had not been there. Just amazing.”

  1. Perhaps, instead of “cloaking itself,” it was slipping back into the dimension from whence it came? That is, instead of merely being here and making itself invisible, it may have been actually disappearing. This would be significant in determining where these things come from — other planets or other planes.

  2. Another sighting that has been witnessed and reported to cloak –
    This brings wonder how many are cloaked right now worldwide ?

  3. I had a ‘cloaking’ event happen Feb. 20, 2008, in Western Washington state. Went out to look at the lunar eclipse with a cheap pair of binoculars and had a shadow pass across my view of the full moon. Thought it was an owl, since there was no noise and it wasn’t a plane. Took binoculars down and looked for the owl and saw nothing. Looked back at the moon and there was a giant boomerang shaped UFO in my view that was just above my tree line of approximately 60 feet tall. It was floating and was the size of a football field for each wing. Had to turn my body from side to side to see the whole thing. The back of the wings had a faint row of white lights. There appeared to be vertical windows all along the backside. I could not see any movement in the windows. I dropped the binocs and could not see the craft. I put them back to my eyes and it was there. I was going to grab my Mag-light and flash it at the craft and decided that might not be a good idea. Who do you call? Would have to be someone with binoculars. I simply watched in amazement as it floated away in a Northerly direction and was out of my sight. By the time it was gone, the eclipse that had just started was well over and the full moon had returned. Once in a lifetime event for the UFO and there will be more lunar eclipses.

  4. I saw the exact same thing tonight over my house in Palm Harbor, Florida. It almost seemed to be “invisible” and yet you could see blinking lights, maybe 8 or 10 in a row and the outline of something between them. Sometimes they were faint and sometimes bright. It was a distorted almost pulsating shape that moved right across my back yard and kept on going!

  5. My wife and I were working at the Crystal River Florida movie theatre in August 2014. We both witnessed the exact same vehicle float above our heads. It was completely silent and almost transparent or “fluid looking” had we not been taking a break from our job and taking a moment laying
