The witness was sitting outside with two friends when the object was first seen.

“My friend’s wife all of a sudden said, ‘What’s that?’” the witness stated. “I looked up and saw an object with three lights start to dim and it looked like it started to ‘cloak.’”

The witness described the object.

“It had this weird aura around it, and it looked kinda like it was surrounded by water and it started to disappear. I could see what looked like a black craft, but it happened so fast that I can’t say for sure what color it was.”

His friend’s wife then had a second experience.

“She saw three bright, reddish-orange lights in the formation of a triangle in between the trees and then she followed it until it went behind their house. She said she saw the same weird ‘cloaking’ effect that I saw.”

The witness said he felt odd just before and just after the event.

“I remember feeling a very weird sensation in my body right before she said ‘what’s that.’ I of course had some anxiety afterwards, but the feeling I had right before I saw it was different.”

  1. What time did this happen? I am a Lakewood resident and think I saw the same thing.

  2. I saw something very similar. It was close to midnight last summer. my girlfriend and i were watching television. I heard this very, very high pitch noise so i went out onto my deck to see what it was. that’s when i saw a sort of translucent ufo. we had clear skies so it was kind of similar to just looking at the stars but you could tell the difference and i could still hear the very high pitch noise. i came back inside and immediately told my girlfriend about the encounter and how big this thing seem to be. it was very large and was moving very slowly. a week later once again i heard the same noise but this time it was smaller and moving faster. The smaller object was in a triangle shape with 3 small lights in the back.

  3. I live closer to Springfield and I was taking the dog out in our back yard, when I looked up and saw a strange formation of lights they were just twinkling kind of clear like the ones on a Christmas tree. I ran in the house and told my husband to hurry up and come see this thing. He even used his night vision binoculars and saw just the lights. It at first looked like a square to start with two lights in the front and three behind that looked like a tail. Then the ones from behind moved up with the front lights and came together like a triangle. It made no sound it moved slowly and didn’t seem like it was very high up and it was invisible except for the lights. That was the first time I or my husband had seen anything like that. This happened at the end of October 2014.
