The witness had just stepped out of a vehicle at a work site at 3:15 p.m. on November 23, 2016, when the object was first seen.

“I noticed the reflection of light in the sky,” the witness stated.“It was stationary, and appeared to change shape.”

A short time later, the object appeared to move.

“After about 30 to 45 seconds, the object began moving very slowly, to the east-southeast. It made no sound, or was too far away to distinguish sound. Elevation did not appear to change. Stopped recording video, when visual contact was obstructed by a building. Began recording again, when visual was regained. Feeling confident that it was moving slow enough to re-acquire.”

The witness then went inside for about a minute.

“When I came back outside, the object was nowhere to be found. I was able to record the object for just over four minutes.”

  1. I can’t make this out and I don’t know about the famous ones that the media makes sound like science fiction that is denounced,but I realize that in spite of the leader of S.E.T.I.wanting to be a bigger genius than he actually is cloaking devices on extraterrestrial vehicles are very real and anyone that witness the real thing isn’t a con artist of a gullible fool or a schizophrenic mad human, I told my experience to scientific American magazine and they have communications with the best scientists and all they did is censor me as if I had anything to do with the show ancient aliens or something(hell I’ve gone to real archaeological digs, I know better.so If someone sees an object that makes them question the validity of the most sophisticated physicist in our country have heart they believed that multi cellular life forms of extreme complexity evolved on mars just a century ago know they use general relativity and theories of how it may be possible to make interstellar flight to denounce the truth of extraterrestrial visitation today. I know this I’ve seen a de cloaked mother ship and how it was swarmed by military helicopters Someday maybe the tec failure may happen so something like all of New York city can see it

  2. In all seriousness, did anyone make note of the wind direction and speed that day? I saw something identical once here in Oklahoma, it turned out to be a plastic Walmart bag that had been caught up on a warm air current by the wind.

  3. If it turns out to be a “plastic bag”, then so be it. That being said, it was stationary in the sky for at least a minute before i started filming, and maintained its position for at least another minute before moving slowly and deliberately to the east. I have no explanation as to what it was, and my reason for posting the video to mufon, was to see if anyone else could tell me.
