Full Report Text:

I was in my front yard with some of my children and one friend of my children. I remember seeing 2 of the brightest lights on this object that seemed like huge headlights. This object came straight toward my yard and made a pivot turn in the sky and headed toward downtown cumberland.

I remember the two bright headlights, many other lights and a bright blue strobing light that i think was ontop of the object. I ran up my alley called bond st. following this object.

My children drew pictures that resembled airplanes with many lights on the bottom. Their friend Ashley drew a pic of an oval object with 2 headlights with somekind of rope thing hanging off the backend of it. I remember the sound of this thing reminded me of a jet engine but was not loud at all and if you were up the street you probably couldn't have heard it.

Full Report Text:

A well lighted object seen from my window. In August of 1994, near ten pm, I awoke and looked out my window, and i saw something out of the corner of my eye. I saw an object that looked like an un-sharpened pencil, on its side.

It was moving very slowly, and "towing" another craft similar to itself, but smaller in size. They were both glowing with a light that was somehow blurry, while nothing else in my sight was blurry. After about ten seconds, it changed its course, and after about ten-15 seconds of that, it sped off at a mind-boggling speed.

It was my first and only sighting, (so far). ((NUFORC Note: Date uncertain. Witness indicates a date in June 1994, but suggests August in the description box.

PD)).

Call me crazy because I'd much rather be Crazy! I was standing on the front porch of friends of the family. It was an apartment complex not a huge one. But, Where I was standing there was a very big gap between the 2 sections.

| ::::::: | :: | :: | :: From where I was I could see straight on threw way past to the other side of a long road where a farm was or atleast a lot of land with a farm house barn and cows I saw the ufo above the ground but I could not tell how far. It did not make a sound and if it did I did not hear it. It had lights of yellow and orange which seemed to move in a odd seqence almost a mathmatical form of communication.

A round dome looking thing on the top which could've been like windows to. Where whatever was inside could see out but nobody could see in. I wonder why it was near the cows.

I was so scared that I just stood there and looked at it. Then I went inside afraid and didn't say anything. I wonderd if my mom would notice me or that maybe I'd look pale because I sure felt pale.

For some strange reason I felt a lot like I wanted to cry. I came back outside and whatever I saw was long gone. Please don't send anyone tomhouse I'll hide.

Full Report Text:

The UFO had Orange and Yellow Lights. I'm not sure if anybody else saw this or not. I was only about 12 years old.

The UFO, had yellow and orange lights on it. I haven't seen anything like this since; except for pictures on the Web. The object seemed to appear out of no where.

Later on I would read about cow mutilations and thought it was pretty strange because there were cows over there where the UFO was at. I can remember this very vividly in my mind. It was sort of like a disk; but it's like I could tell how it was moving.

It was dark outside and a good distance away from me so I wasn't able to make out details. I was so completely astonished I didn't know what to say. I remember thinking, the flashing of the lights reminded me of the ships from the movie Close Encounters.

I didn't tell anybody I saw it at the time. I didn't think they would believe me and accuse me of making things up for attention or something. I went inside real quick (my parents and I were visiting our neighbors) and then stepped back out.

And I was gone. I remember feeling like they wanted to see me, like they were checking up on me. After that I was consumed with an extreme urge to do advanced math, and discuss so many things which were beyond my level (Supposedly) I felt like I had this mission.

This is by all means no hoax or lie. ((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. We have assigned an arbitrary date in 1994.

PD)) ((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS)) Sorry about that I don't remember exactly. Back when I saw this UFO there were not any such thing as web sites to report them to. Prior to this I haven't ever reported any of my sightings except one and got no response or acknowledgment for it.

So to this day I still don't know to make of it. I have 3 more sightings if your interested, email me anytime. I can only guess when this 2nd sighting was, which I attempted to describe to in the form I filled out to the best of my ability.

I was still in Elementary school at the time, so it had to have been about 1994-95. You also might be interested to know that after I saw the UFO, I wrote a book and it was published.
