The witness was outside at the corner of Allegheny and Kensington in Philadelphia waiting for the bus at 8 a.m. on April 3, 2017.

“It was a lovely morning and I was looking at the sky and clouds and saw a black object quite high,” the witness stated.“I was facing north/northwest. My first thought was that it was some debris floating on the air currents – but it was not just floating along – it was moving quite slowly from east to west.”

The witness described the object.

“The object was dark black, shaped like a wide diamond – or a square object on a corner. It did not appear to reflect light – however, I noticed a light that flashed about four times in the 10 minutes or so I was looking at it.”

The witness decided to get a second opinion.

“I asked a young woman, also waiting for the bus, if she saw it – she said yes – I asked her if it looked like a helicopter? She said she didn’t think so. I’m afraid I didn’t get her name, but if I see her again I will ask. I did try to take some photos – but I don’t believe they show much since the object was so high up and I’d think, quite distant. I’m attaching the photos from my phone.”

Please be cautious with all UFO photos until an investigation is complete.

  1. Monday 04/24/2017 at 13:00. Working on Camden NJ waterfront, my partner and I witnessed three objects hovering over Philadelphia. My pictures look almost the same as the above photos. Zooming in on the photo you can see some sort of energy field being emitted. I retrieved my binoculars to get a closer look. What I saw was three craft changing colors like a rainbow. Very odd. After approximately 15 minutes the objects slowly moved north east over New Jersey.
