UFO stops traffic over Florida boulevard

A Florida witness at Port Charlotte driving westbound along Midway Boulevard at 6:34 p.m. on November 30, 2014, reported getting stopped behind several cars just as a “pretty large white orb” UFO moved overhead, according to testimony in Case 61753 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

“I came to a stop behind a few cars in the middle of the road,” the witness stated. “People were looking up to the north. I head a low humming and saw a pretty large white orb. Inside was a small pill-sized and shaped black- metallic UFO.”

The object was changing colors and moving abruptly up and down before stopping to hover. Pictured: Charlotte, FL. (Credit: Google)

The witness described the object.

“It was changing colors, moved abruptly up and down, east and west, and then it hovered for a half a minute, and flew at an incomparable speed.”

The witness is not familiar with the type of craft that was seen.

“It scared me badly because I used to live near a military base and an airport in Maryland and have never seen any craft like this – it barely made any sound!”

The other drivers at the scene noticed the object too.

“When it shot out of sight, the cars started moving again, but during the incident a male in the car in front of me actually yelled out his window, ‘What the “blank” is that?’ I knew we were all thinking what the heck it really was. I can tell you now – I’m no longer a skeptic when it comes to UFOs.”

Port Charlotte is an unincorporated community in Charlotte County, Florida, population 54,392.

Florida has a current UFO Alert Rating of 5 with a low number of recent reports nationally. Florida had 30 UFO reports that occurred during October 2014 – calculated at 1.55 sightings per million population.

  1. This happened in Bradenton Florida as well. Cross section of 53rd and Lockwood. White Orb looked like a plane coming in for a crash. It stopped and made a direct turn and headed south. Was not a helicopter. Was not a plane. Stopped traffic. Just a hair after 9 pm at night.

  2. Miller – If you have not yet done so, please report your sighting to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) at mufon.com. Thanks.

  3. … and with all the cellphones in the world today, no one got a photo? I find this hard to believe.

  4. So you’re telling me that in 2014 a UFO stopped multiple vehicles and not one picture was taken? Then I read the comments and it’s happened before. So at least 2 similar incidences and not one photo/video? MUFON is a joke. Don’t report to them. They often never release photos/videos. When asked why they say, “we don’t want to compromise the investigation.” Sorry MUFON, no dice!

  5. It’s a hoax. A guy two streets over made a ufo out of a i[pad with 4 propellers and hovers it above the 4 way lights.

  6. Taint in their local news paper or news casts. How come? Must be a fake if it wasn’t worthy of news coverage. Taint real.

  7. There are no aliens inside them, it’s apart of the government. Obviously the government wouldn’t tell us about their secret weapons. When the government doesn’t want an investigation it means that THEY sent it. but when there were lights in Washington D.C. Fighter jets scrambled after them (soon later was found out that it was just hydrogen blah blah blah). So obviously this is U.S. super/secret weapons. And they don’t want world production of these war machines.

  8. Rightwingers in yet another rightwing state cant identify a easily identifiable aircraft…..
