UFOs reported moving in low formation over Ohio

The witness was outside smoking when two lights were noticed rising above the tree line about 6:30 p.m. on November 7, 2015.

“The two craft traveled a straight and level flight path from northwest to southeast,” the witness stated.“They appeared to be a spinning gem shape, with no sound. Both were spinning in unison, and appeared to be flying in formation. Recon definitely came to mind.”

The witness with a military background could not identify the objects.

“They were not traveling at an unusual speed, or did not make any abnormal maneuvers. They did, however, disappear shortly after passing my position as I faced south. I have been an aircraft mechanic for over 30 years, including four years in the USAF at Edwards AFB. These were absolutely not aircraft that I know of, and unlike any of the unusual things I saw at Edwards. I live about a 15-minute drive from Wright Patterson AFB.”

The witness used the only video resource on hand at the time.

“In the short video I managed to get on my phone, I tried zooming in and out a little to maintain focus. I didn’t have my reading glasses on. You will note towards the end, as tree branches become visible, the lead craft disappears, the second one travels a little further, and then disappears as well. One thing I noted, was the spinning in unison. I do not have the means to enhance video, and would love to see what you can bring out in the video.”

The case was reported to MUFON on November 8, 2015. Ohio MUFON Field Investigator Tom Smith investigated and closed this case as an Unknown.

West Carrollton is a city in Montgomery County, Ohio, population 13,143. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

  2. They do not look or move unlike Chinese Lanterns, so that possibility can not be ruled out. They are flickering points of light that fade out. That is what Chinese Lanterns do.
