Virginia witness reports silent, low flying boomerang UFO

A Virginia witness at Alexandria reported watching a large, boomerang-shaped object with five, large, circle-shaped lights underneath crossing the sky silently over 500 feet, but under the cloud cover, according to testimony in Case 82719 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was outside sitting on his apartment deck smoking a cigar at 8:30 p.m. on March 19, 2017, when the incident occurred.

“I was facing in a southern direction, looking at the constellation Orion,” the witness stated.“My eyes were well adjusted to the night sky when some movement below Orion (but much closer my location) caught my eye.”

An object in the sky caught his eye.

“I fixed my eyes on the movement, and realized it was a large, boomerang-shaped aircraft moving in a straight southern direction at fairly slow speed. It had five large circles on the underside of the craft that were just a slightly different color than the craft itself. Very dark, charcoal gray circles against a black craft.”

The witness said the object blended in with the night sky extremely well, like camouflage.

“Without catching the movement at that exact moment I did, it would have been impossible to see. It stayed visible for approximately 8-10 seconds before fading into the night sky. The aircraft had no visible lights whatsoever and had no jet noise. Other aircraft were flying in my sight before and after the event. These were all different airliners (flashing lights, jet engine noise) flying at different altitudes and directions. My area gets heavy air traffic due to an airport and military installations nearby, so I’m very used to seeing and hearing several civilian and military aircraft from small planes to large jets and helicopters.”

The witness has a military background.

“I also served in the Air Force and Air National Guard in the past and have never seen an aircraft anything like the one I saw this evening. It was truly unbelievable.”

  1. Thanks for placing your report witness from Virginia, I too have seen the exact craft twice, once while looking at the big dipper and once with my night vision binoculars, here in Haltom City, Texas, from my own back yard. It is BIG, silent and was the same color- light and dark grey/black, lights were not on. I’d sure like to know which Alien race flies those massive ships…they are not ours. Keep you eyes up 🙂

  2. I have seen these up close, very close. I have seen some of what they can do and I know others who have also seen them. I think they are us from the future. The only way to travel the universe is to travel though time as otherwise it would take to long. They travel through space and time at the same moment. They are us.
