Greenish rectangular see through blob I saw a greenish blob rectangular in shape that darted about. It seemed to be watching me. I thought maybe it was because I was taking pictures with my phone and it saw my camera flash.

It seemed to be close, 100 ft off the ground and almost directly above me. There was one UFO that was kinda see through and bright. It reminded me of cotton candy.

I was at my home on 20 acres with a few outside lights.

Full Report Text:

Fireball resembing color of other meteors that night fell perfectly straight down as if it was a drop, delivery, or disguised landing. On, or around, December 14th. The events span hours on 287 in the late evening/night until maybe 03:00-05:00.

I was heading south on US-287 from Denver way towards either Cactus TX or Guymon OK to pickup a meat load. Pretty sure it was Cactus due to the date on my most recent freight bills, but i must have passed by Guymon along the way after I left the shipper to end up on Us-412 e/b. I remember Guymon because it was the other load pickup location from Dec 7th or 8th that I keep wanting to confuse this report occurance with.

On the way down 287 I remember watching what looked like sporadic 'meteor'? showers. Not many. just one here or there within some random span of 10 or 15 minutes, but at least for an hour (if not two) I can vaguely recollect about 5 to 7 meteor fireballs (light in color like a white or light blue).

From their trajectory, distance and speed I assumed at least one was heading towards Santa Fe, the Jicarilla Apache lands, or somewhere around Alamosa by way of looking at my gps when i zoomed out for one in particular. Others seemed more South on my route at what at the time seemed like Amarillo because they were so seemingly far away. These occurances didnt alarm me at all, especially at first.

However, after I received my load and weighed and was heading east on US-412, on the straight stretch from Hardesty, Balko, and May, maybe 20 to 30 minutes past Guymon as I remember it, I seen one of the same colored comets or meteors within 1/2 mile to 2 miles falling at low altitude (maybe as low as 50-100 yards before I lost sight of its impact point) south of US-412, but it was much closer, and now that it was closer I knew its size was much smaller. The only thing that had alarmed me, and still does, is that all night long the others had fell diagonally/slanted approach. but this one fell straight down.

Straight as can be. The otger thing i found odd at the time was sign i passed on 412 for some kind of observatory or scientific study station within 10ish minutes of where I seen it fall straight down. Upon researching the county today (which is roughly how i found this site) I didnt discover anything super odd except an occurance of numerous elk surrounding a bear at a feeder.

Though, to note, there is the Pantex Nuclear Facility south of the area where I had seen at least one of the diagonal comets/meteors going (towards Amarillo). I hope I didnt waste your time in reporting this, but Ive never seen one fall straight down like that, esoecially in an area with such obscure side road naming conventions; Theyre all numbers. I wish I had more exact times and dates.

Two extremely bright lights appear quickly high in the sky and disappear as fast. Was standing outside in backyard with the dog. Looked up in the sky, south and west of Mars, I saw two positions that at first I thought were distant stars.

Then the brightness of them increased in intensity and they were extremely bright and white, no blinking or other colors. After fifteen or twenty seconds, they began to fade and as they were fading, they to go up and away, out of sight as fast as they appeared.

The creature was tall, slender, dark humanoid. It was late afternoon in a forest and I dropped a pebble. When I looked up, I saw a tall black figure with no eyes looking at me.

The figure was almost as tall as the house I was near. The creature looked at me for about five seconds while I was locked in place. The creature seemed to force me to stay, then it let me go.

It did nothing at all, yet it was intimidating.

I was outside taking pictures of the moon. I turned my head away from the moon, glancing another direction. As I did so, I saw a rather out of this world ship.

It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. It seemed to hover for about 20-25 seconds. At one time it even moved from side to side.

It did have lights, but lights that were not on earthly aircrafts.only UFO lights. As it hovered, it kind of went still for a second, and then I chose to look away.

eventually looking back at where the UFO had been, but it had vanished. Simply vanished!.

Full Report Text:

Large, dark, silent object flies over town before turning and disappearing from view. I was out with my new binoculars to look at the stars. I looked to the south and noticed something large, dark, and low altitude flying silently several miles away.

The object had to be huge, larger than a jumbo jet. At first, I thought it was a huge flock of birds, which would have been strange at 9:30 PM, but it wasn't that. It looked brown/gray/black, not sure, but it just came so close to blending with the night sky that I wouldn't have noticed it if the night wasn't so bright and if it had not blotted out some stars as it passed.

The shape is difficult to describe. I would say the primary portion of it was rectangular, but with protrusions at the top and bottom. It almost looked like the silhouette of a giant gun or key.

I will submit an illustration by email. I caught it with my binoculars and tracked it as far as I could. It was going East to West, but as a I tracked it, it veered off to the north some distance away.

At one point, I did notice some very dim lights, but I thought it may be reflections from early lights as it turned. The shape seemed different when it turned, but I don't know if it had to tilt to do that or what. At some point it was behind a house and I lost it.

I saw two very different UFOs in the same night. This is the first of the sightings. I was watching the sunset and it was still very light outside.

A very bright “star” appeared above the horizon above the sunset and appeared to sit motionless. I figured it was a star becoming visible, but I thought it was strange because it was so bright, it wasn't there before, and it was still very light outside. I pointed it out to my daughter and she saw it as well.

I got some pics of the sunset, but noticed that the bright star had completely vanished.

Full Report Text:

Flickering orb that may have been two orbs near the end. There was a single flashing orb. It flickered and bounced around a small area from my viewpoint.

I thought it may be a plane but it clearly was not moving like a plane and the encounter was for 15-20 minutes so a plane or satellite would have been long gone in a shorter time frame. The orb continued to flicker and jump. I caught it on video and photograph.

I noticed little arcs of light coming off the orb a few times. Then near the end it appeared to be two orbs. But I’m not sure if the one orb was just bouncing that fast.

In my video though you can see two orbs of light moving in tandem with a beam of light between them as the moved and flicked for a moment. Then they were gone.

Horizontal string of lights evenly spaced flying in a straight line A group of friends and I went camping at turner falls from the evenings of October 23rd through the 25th. Around 9-10 pm on Saturday the 24th a string of 15-20 spheres of light flew above us. They were all equally spaced in a straight horizontal line.

It flew at about what appeared to be 30,000 feet in the air according to the air traffic controller who happened to be a part of the group. It flew above us for 20-30 seconds and then slowly faded and disappeared. It didn’t shoot out of the sky or suddenly disappear, it faded into oblivion.

Long string of white lights. While outside my niece said “what’s that?” And pointed up. When we looked up there was a straight row of small lights.

We knew it wasn’t an ordinary air craft because none of the lights were blinking. The only way I can describe it is like a straight row of Christmas lights on a string. Some of the lights were white, some were blue, and some of them were green.

You could kind of make out a shape behind the lights that looked like a blimp shape. There were no clouds in the sky so it was strange when the object looked like it disappeared into nothing. They are saying it is a satellite on Facebook but still want to report.

20 or so individual lights in a close line moving as one. I saw a long chain of lights. There were approximately 20 small spears of light.

Each light was separate but they were very close together, much like what you would see if you laid a pearl necklace in a line. The lights were mostly white but there were other colors as well. This perfect line of lights moved relatively fast and in about 25 seconds was out of my view.

I am familiar with birds flying at night. I do not believe that is what I saw. The lights were traveling ESE.
