The witness lives in a country setting and was wondering why his roommate’s dog would not stop barking about 1 a.m. on April 28, 2015.

“I was walking by the picture window and saw a white light pulsing or hovering over the field to the west,” the witness stated.

The witness stood watching the object for a few seconds before going outside.

“No sound – but felt a vibration like a loud car stereo sub constant.”

The witness attempted to get closer to the object, but his truck would not start.

“I went back in and shot on phone what I could off front porch.”

Iowa MUFON Field Investigators Robert Kent and Beverly J. Trout investigated and closed the case as an Unknown. The case was reported to MUFON on May 11, 2015.

Investigators said the object made no sound, seemed solid, then transparent, and moved and rotated in ways that no natural object would move. They recommend further analysis of the video (seen above) that may reveal more details for identification.

Knoxville is a city in Marion County, Iowa, population 7,313.

  1. I’ve seen this same type of UFO many times..last time was night of lunar eclipse..watched it for 15min and was at least 10 to 15 miles away,I guess,by judging the cloud it was lighting up..Definitely not a drone..took video,but couldn’t keep it still for good video..

  2. JC, this is not, “Obviously a drone of some kind.”

    I suppose that since you have gone to the trouble to post your picture, that we can expect more of your debunking in the future?
