Tulsa UFO witness says object sounded like a lawnmower

An Oklahoma witness at Tulsa reported watching a UFO with “three really large and bright green lights” that made a sound like a lawnmower and moved as close as the tree top level about 2 a.m. on January 14, 2015, according to testimony in Case 62631 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness looked out a patio door and saw the object moving toward her location.

“Noticed some really bright solid green lights in the sky coming from the north airport area towards me,” the witness stated. “They were so round and bright! Wondered what the heck was in the sky.”

The witness continued to watch.

“When it got close to my house I could see at least three really large and bright green lights in the front. It could have had more green lights. I did not count. It was close to tree top level. I could hear through my glass door it was really a loud noise it made. Sounded like a really loud lawnmower in the sky.”

The object moved closer.

“As it got close to house it turned to the east and I could see a bright flashing red light at the back of this thing. I live near the airport and see lights all the time on airplanes and helicopters. Never heard one that sounded like this or seen anything that had that many large green lights on the front of it. It continued on going to the southeast of me. Really strange! Those bright green lights are what caused me to watch it. Don’t think it was an airplane. Maybe some new kind of craft or helicopter?”

  1. My grandfather saw one back in 1936, while working in Holbrook, Arizona. I saw a UFO back in 1973, west of Rio Ranchos, New Mexico right away I parked on the side to watch it and it was no plane, at 4:30 am and I watched it for about six minutes as it hovered back and forth, went north and back, very bright lights, green, blue and sort of orange and then it just took off at lighting speed . The object made movements that I know were not known of back then and even now. I truly believe in UFO”S the governments have known about them since world war I, world war II, Viet Nam, etc. I think that the reason for their cover up is that we are power less against them. As long as they don’t attack or shoot down our jet fighters they leave them alone.

  2. I saw this very same thing last night (July 28, 2015) flying north bound from Coweta area at 10:00 p.m., crossing Hwy 412 west of Inola and heading north toward Catoosa. The airplane/aircraft was flying incredibly slow just 100 feet or so above the tree line and it was very large. There were at least 6 large green lights in the shape of a V and that odd random flashing light at the back of the V shape. The object was solid because it blocked out things that it crossed in front of. I fly 120 flights a year and live on the flight path of west bound traffic. This was not a normally light aircraft, but I can’t say what it was for sure.

  3. I should of went into more detail on this sighting when I posted in Jan. When these 3 green lights were seen I saw 3 very large round green solid lights that were horizontal in the sky side by side, and did not flash at all, it was like a set of green stop lights. no V shape to it at all. Maybe that’s all the lights they had on at the time. Flew low and slow in sky and when it got to my fence line it was barely above the trees. It stopped at fence and hoovered. It was facing south. Was a Real loud craft, then I heard a noise like a transmission would make or like a gear change and I watched those 3 green lights rotate counterclockwise to where the green lights were now facing East. When it rotated I now saw one odd looking flashing red light at the back. Could only see about one inch of the green lights on one light near me on the front now. So after it did this it got quiet and just slowly flew on off going East, strangest thing I’ve ever seen. It had to be a black craft, looked and looked at it and could not make out what it was, it was solid. Somebody said it was a Quadcopter, but whatever was flying over Tulsa Jan 15, 2015 was way too large to be that. These green lights were the size of stop lights if not larger. And what the heck flies and hoovers then can make a 45 degree turn to change direction on it? Been searching ever since and can’t find anything that looks like this thing. Maybe it’s only around Tulsa and Coweta? Can’t believe only 2 people around here has seen it? I want to know what it is and what it’s up to. Do people not ever look up? Something similar was seen Nov. 2014 outside of Atlanta, GA, April 2012 in Holdenville OK, and Iowa City, Iowa in Dec. 2011. And video is posted from the UK online that is similar. This has to be something new or several things that are new. Hope I get to see it again someday!

  4. I saw the same plane, craft or whatever it was Saturday night 8:41pm. March 5,2016. I was sitting on my couch I heard a loud sound that sounded like a lawn mower. It got my attention because im like who is cutting their yard this late. The sound got louder and sounded closer. I opened the front door to look out and I saw whatever it was hovering over a house NW. The first thing that caught by attention was the neon green huge lights with smaller white lights under the green that blinked. The craft made a small “u” spaped turn now it was on my side of the street hovering over my neighbors next door. I was to go in the middle ofmy yard to continue to get a good look. It was so large i dont no the measurements. But I will never forget this strange encounter. I stood there and observed. I tried capturing video but my brand new pphone would not work. I did notice the time 8:45 or i observed for about 4-5 minutes. The craft disapeared and loud noise stopped. So strange. I told mu husband he said you defiantly saw a UFO. I then googled a few key words and found some in Tulsa.

  5. My name is corey thomas and iv seen things in the past i cant explain but if i had the tecnoligy i probly Wouldnt any ways cause its to much for most to comprehind or to have the power of athority over for the right reasons. It could be dangerous in most peoples hands and could be global disaster for mankind. But to the point a couple years back me and my wife where getting ready to hit skelly drive by utica and admeral as the night fall started to begin and we seen a huge green light of some sort of plasma force field of some type with some type of antigravity force too cause it left clear ripples on each side of it traveling threw the sky heading west tords california. Way faster then a jet and no sound to it really. No tell of fire so not a comet. It wasnt dropping down either and it was as twice as high as the high rise bieldings down town tulsa and never seen anything like it befor. I know what it was thow. God showed me in mybreams several times. I have seen satan while i was wide awake to and he was in a red spirit form. He looks like us other humans. He dont have wings or horns but he is super evil smart and super dangerous. I didnt have to have the third eyr of the mind to see him either. Im not scared of him so i turned away from him but he must be scared of me to visit for two minutes like he did in his red spirital orb form plan as man but transparent

  6. Sorry bout my spelling. Not the greatest but u know what i mean and i have had strang visions since i could remember growing up and some times other things to like seeing things in my dreams days befor they happen or something else that sounds wierd but true to my word and i wouldnt make up storys either. Seems like i was able to control some of the planet for a few short moments of my life for a few minutes here and there and i would thank about it then would see it strangely happen on tv on the news on cnn and some other channals then thats when satan showed up for a few minutes in spirit trying to scare me but i didnt care and have been threw alot and back already in my life.

  7. Iv never posted anything iv ever experianced til now and i probably wont agien cause most just thank its a bizzare story but it aint. Its all very true! Most my friends turned away from me in the past cause of my honesty. The green light i seen in tulsa was one huge green lite and was super fast and it was high tech thats for shore and satan on the other hand was a trip as well.nwver believed he was rwal til i seen him to. Crazy planet we love on

  8. I’m just a few miles North of you, barely into Owasso. I think it’s a gas powered drone. But, I’m 100% it was a drone. I could see the camera on it. I’ve seen it during the day, and you certainly described the noise in the only way I would. It sounds like an extremely loud lawnmower. It flew directly over my house and hovered for a half minute or so. I’m not saying that it did land back at the Owasso Police Dept., it’s a a few blocks south of me and I had trees in the way. Still, I had the feeling that is where it was flown from and back to. Again, that’s speculation. Thanks for reporting this. Cool knowing you saw it there around Mohawk. I’m a photographer and frequent the woods and area out there around Oxley.

  9. Frank, how large is this drone you saw? Is it black? This thing I saw was a lot wider than my Mustang sitting in the sky and at least the length of 1 1/2 cars if not longer. I have looked at tons of pictures and have not seen a drone, even in the military photos the size of what I saw. And nothing has the huge round neon green lights. This thing was very large and the 3 green lights were sitting in the sky like 3 huge neon green stop lights side by side. I am South of Mohawk, I am at 21st and Memorial in Tulsa. This thing can hover and apparently somebody pushes a button and rotates the whole craft 45 degrees from going south to going east. When it rotated the thing made a creaking noise like a gear change on a transmission or a creaky metal door noise. I watched those green lights twirl around while it hovered. Then saw the odd looking flashing red light. It did not have any other lights.

  10. Shelly I was the exact same thing with you’re discriptuon. I also can’t find any pictures anywhere. But a really loud lawnmower hovering object. I only got up to see what it was because it was so loud.

  11. April, thanks for posting you saw this thing. Some people think I’m goofy and seeing things. But they sure should have been with me that night, cause whatever it is, it’s amazing. It’s really odd that we can’t find any pictures that looks like it. Especially a craft with those 3 huge neon green lights. It only has the odd flashing red light at the back. No other lights were seen. When I saw it rotate those green lights twirled around real fast. I knew it was fixing to do something, cause it was just sitting there in my backyard above the trees. When I heard the creaking noise or transmission noise I thought, Oh no, something is opening a door and going to come down to visit me, so needless to say I was glad to see the whole craft rotate like that instead of something coming down to visit me. Those big lights twirled all at once and were connected. So they decided to change from going south to take off going east. It was a shock, and why it stopped at my house is a mystery. So it was one single craft, whatever it was. Are you in Tulsa? Or do you live in another state?

  12. Wow! Yes I’m in Tulsa also. North Tulsa. I will never forget the loud engine noise it was making. Those green bright light was so bright you could miss them but I also 3 tiny white lights under the three green neon lights. I thought those light was going to take zap me to the craft. When I tell people they think in nuts also. The only person who doesn’t is my husband. A few days after I had my encounter. My husband was sleep and woke up to a blinding white light that lit up our bed room. He got up to see what it was and looked out the window and whatever it was . Was landed and the grass but he was blinded for 1-2minutes. It was very odd. I have no clue why they chose to come to us. I do know that their technology surpasses any technology on this Earth. Also I have been open minded for awhile and I just believe that this is their was on saying yes we are real, you all have been deceived, there is so much that you haven’t been told and that’s being covered up. However through it all I was never scared. It was a million thoughts running through my head trying to process what I was seeing. How was it hovering in place, why was it so large, what was it doing, what did they want, how did it turn at phenomenal speeds and take off and vanish, so many questions. I’m just glad someone else saw it as well!! Also I think it knew I was in the house sitting on the couch, because the sound was loud! But I bypassed and yep playing on my phone and it’s like it ram the engine a few times which then made me go see what it was . And there is was!!!???!!!

  13. It is a drone, saw the same thing the other night. It is pretty big was circling around and hovered to the point of looking like it it landed on the roof of a house 1 over from mine, then heeaded towards downtown tulsa at approximately 5am. It is very unsettling though.
