Pennsylvania student videotapes sphere UFO size of basketball

A Pennsylvania witness at Slippery Rock reported watching and videotaping a sphere-shaped UFO the size of a basketball, according to testimony in Case 79259 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness is a student at Slippery Rock University who ruled out ball lightning, dust particles and bugs. The event occurred beginning about 10:27 p.m. on September 18, 2016.

“I was doing my homework when suddenly I noticed a bright dot out of the corner of my eye followed by my neighbor’s dog barking like crazy,” the witness stated.“Upon noticing these things, I then turned towards the window and saw a very bright, basketball-sized, white/silver, beautifully uniquely shaped UFO (orb). This orb was like nothing I’ve ever seen or experienced before.”

The witness said the object appeared to be angelic.

“Its shape was mainly spherical, but looked like it was a spherical shape hard to comprehend – like a two-dimensional creature seeing a three-dimensional sphere. It’s almost like it came from a higher dimensional plane, managed to somehow project to our plane, gave off a feeling of power and love, and was accompanied by a light humming sound.”

The witness has a theory.

“I hypothesize that mathematically, this type of ‘dimensional projection’ can be explained by mapping from a four-dimensional vector plane(their reality) onto a three-dimensional vector plane (our reality; linear algebra transformations). This would allow an orb of possibly a higher dimension to travel to lower dimensions and be visible to us three-dimensional creatures.”

The witness described the object’s path.

“The orb’s travel path was linear, traveling from the woods (behind the back parking lot of my building) to a lamp post (in the back parking lot). While traveling, it was pulsating. Again, I was absolutely astonished by this object. The duration of time it took the orb to travel from the woods to the lamp post was approximately one minute. When the orb neared the light post, it caused the lights to dim initially. When the lights brightened, the orb started to almost ‘dance’ around them in some sort of way. The object appeared to be metallic and have some sort of electric and magnetic field around it. With that being said, it’s almost like the orb was trying to ‘charge’ itself by interacting its magnetic field against the electric field emitted by the light (this is explained by the solenoid-coil experiment to create a charge).”

The orb then became brighter.

“As the orb did this it started to brighten. After staring at this orb baffled, confused, and coming to the realization that I wasn’t seeing things, I took out my phone and started recording it. After a couple seconds of recording I waved my hands to try to get its attention. Upon seeing me, the orb started to zigzag from one point in space to another instantly (null geodesic) and then suddenly vanished instantly. Also, the object appears to disappear traveling to the left.”

The witness included one video with the MUFON report, which was filed on September 19, 2016.

“I submitted the original unedited video I took, so if you want to see how the object actually takes off, slow down the time frames in the video at the time gap from 32s-36s. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and watch the video. And as a junior physics and engineering student I ensure the accuracy of the theory and invite you to look into the physics/mathematical topics after watching the video to try to make sense of these UFOs and their nature. Hope to hear back from you soon.”

  1. This is another example of a “black halo” UFO. In this case the black is “blacker than black”.

    There are many, many UFO sightings showing “black halos” . These are of interest because similar effects can be produced in a laboratory. Circa 1911 George Samuel Piggott conducted experiments with a high voltage wireless telegraph apparatus that produced very similar black halo effects in a laboratory setting. There were also inexplicable levitation effects. Tesla saw similar “black band” and “black streamer” effects during his experiments at Colorado Springs. Strange physical forces were also evident.

    The black halos, coupled with Piggott’s experiments, offer solid clues about how UFO propulsion systems operate . This kind of thing could be studied up close and personal in a laboratory. What we learn about the science and technology could be quite valuable. But we need some retired engineers to look into this.
