Watching sunset on computer shortly after cigar shape appears I was watching the sunset on my computer of Spearfish S Dakota weather cam, shortly after sunset a cigar shape appears it was metallic and moved slowly from left to right on my screen. My husband and I watched until it got to the end of my screen. I was able to back up and watch again that's when I started to video and take pictures.

There were no flashing lights like a plane would have, in fact no lights at all. This took place at 9:15 central standard time that's my time. I believe that Spearfish is an hour behind us.

Low flying string of white lights 12000 to 15000 feet heading west to east. Witnessed for 10-12 seconds then faded and disappeared We witnessed a string of low flying bright white lights 15-18 of them at low altitudes for 10-12 seconds moving from the west to east direction at 9:45 pm on a clear flawless night. Once they were in front of us just above tree top angle approximately 12-15000’ they all vanished on after another.

These were not Starlink satellites. They were to low and they vanished like some type of cloaking device was activated. If they were satellites we could have watched them travel to the eastern sky.

We took pictures and a video of them but they did not record to the cell phone. No images appeared on the phone’s camera. No sound was heard.

No other aircraft in the area. Crafts we’re heading in the direction of Ellsworth Airforce Base outside do Rapid City SD.

3 lights in sky at different intervals Saw orangeish yellow light (not incredibly bright, but noticeable) moved from the west to east- about 2 Minutes later I saw another light, same color and brightness, go in the same direction. It seemed lower than what an airplane flies at. Then a few minutes later, I saw the 3rd light with same color and brightness move from the north to southwest.

Lights did not disappear or blink from what I could tell. Steady light. It was slower than a shooting star, where I could walk on my deck and follow it.

It was fast but not incredibly fast.

Light was there and gone. I was looking up at the sky and facing south, there was a light like a star, I don't know why but I kind of stared up there for about 5 minutes and it just diasappeared, no clouds at that time it was clear. It's probably nothing but thought I would report it, it was not falling debris or starlink like the pictures.

Rapid City, SD

Full Report Text:

We saw round 3 lights moving through the sky above our area two of which performed movements an airplane could not. About 9:30-9:40 pm, as I was looking south at the rising full moon in a clear night sky from my back porch, I saw a bright white light cross the sky, coming toward me from south to north; it passed over my home and continued north to slightly north-east. It was moving fast, steady, level, bright and silent, and was not as high as airplanes usually are.

It was of the brightness of a car headlight, but not as large. I called my husband to come, but it was gone before he could see it. We went into the street to look for it.

As we were, we both saw two more lights appear just under the star Arcturus, which was fairly high in the sky to the south-west. The first light was heading east and a second was following behind it from a short distance. Again, both lights were round, bright, steady without flashing, moving fast and silent.

They were more like the surrounding stars in brightness, and further away and less bright than the first light that passed over our house, and they were travelling faster than the airplanes that I commonly see overhead. We are in the flightpath of airplanes from the Rapid City Regional Airport, and planes are common sights and sounds. We are also two blocks from our city's hospital and under the Life Flight helicopter's path.

These were not airplanes or helicopters. The second light was appearing to catch up to the first when it suddenly took a fast 90 degree turn to the south. The turn was smooth and tight and the light did not slow down.

As it was turning, the first light came to a stop and hung there for almost half a minute. It looked remarkably like one of the background stars as it did. Had it not been moving, I would have taken it for a star.

The night, at that time, was crystal clear. We soon lost the light that turned south into the distance, and the first light resumed its eastward course. We were able to keep eyes on it for almost half a minute before we lost it in the glare of the full moon.

However, as it resumed its course, it seemed to slow and speed up a couple of times, as well as to swerve once, as though something were in its way. We saw nothing, but there was a definite change and then correction to its course. We went inside and my husband checked the flight path of the ISS.

It was reported as being in Florida at this time. I have seen these same kind of lights several times in this same part of the sky over the last few years, but this is the first time that someone has been with me as a witness. I am a night person and I love the night sky.

I look at it often and am interested in the stars. I am not a UFO person, but a curious person as to what it is that I so often see. My husband mostly humors me, he would rather be inside watching tv, but last night he was disturbed by the two lights that he saw.

These lights have always been the same round, white, bright lights that don't change shape or size, that move quickly without sound and that don't flash. They resemble stars and when they are not moving, they are difficult to notice. During the last full lunar eclipse visible in my area, which I observed in it's entirety from my driveway, I also observed two of these lights.

They were stationary on the southern horizon, and I was puzzling because I didn't recognize what stars they were, when they both began to accelerate straight up into the night sky. I watched them for a full minute as they crossed paths and disappeared. It is my opinion that they can remain unnoticed when they are stationary, and once they move, they are visible for such a short time that there is nothing to do but watch and be amazed.

I personally look up, I keep an eye to the sky because I love the ever changing aspect of the sky both day and night. I always have, and so I see things most people don't simply because they don't pay attention. I think there is more to see that we are aware simply because we don't look.

I am also an artist, and I look to everything with an artist's eye and because I want to see. Because I look, almost 20 years ago, I had an opportunity to observe a round, front-lighted, metallic object about the size of a basketball cross low over the roof of my neighbor's house and continue west until I lost it. It could not have been more than 20-30 feet from me.

It too moved steadily, on a level course, silent and unflashing. I don't talk to people about it because I am tired of being made fun of, but I think it was significant. It was not a drone.

It had no visible propulsion or wings or tail. No intake or exhaust. It left no wake or trail.

It was dead silent. I don't know what it was or why it would have been in a small neighborhood in Rapid City, South Dakota, but it was. I would talk about it to someone who didn't make fun of me, though I don't know what that would prove.

It came and it went, there was no time to grab a camera, no time to draw attention to it, it passed with a sense of purpose and was gone. It did have to navigate it's way around several trees as I watched. I have no idea what such a thing could be.

But had I not paused for a moment to look up, I would never have known it was there. Our backgrounds. My husband is an honorably retired member of the USAF.

He's not particularly imaginative and couldn't care less about things like UFOs. I am college educated, had my own graphic design studio, am an active artist of realism, not a sci fi fan, am interested in almost everything, and I am a Jehovah's Witness. My faith places a very high priority on honesty and most in it are very conservative.

Few would even consider the possibility of such a thing as an UFO. For myself, I am simply a curious person interested in the beauty and complexity of this world who keeps her eyes constantly open. If anyone believes me enough to want to talk to me, that's fine.

What we saw was not ground shaking, but real. The straight-traveling lights could be passed off as anything, but few things can stop and hang in the sky, or execute such a perfect 90 degree turn as they did last night. I do think, given the odds of seeing what we have seen, that there must be a lot more up there than we notice.

Bright white disk Sky was clear and blue so it stood out .I looked up and seen a Bright white spot in the sky and we watched it for about an hour before getting the Binoculars out to look at it.We tried to take a pic of it but it just showed a white disk in a blue sky.

looking through the Binoculars you could see it looked almost like a it had a dark lin across it and it was white in the center with pink on the top and green on the bottom.I think this was from the reflection on the sun on it.it never moved from the spot it was at in the sky so from 7:25 -10:45 it was still in the same place in the sky.

I waited till the sun started to go down to see if the sun would move off of it and it did about 10:20 it stated to fade away and the sun was off of it and you couldn't see it with the naked eye so I looked back with the Binoculars and you could still see it but it was not white anymore.it was a Giant Round Ring and it was not in our atmosphere it was in space.there was a passenger plane flying under it and a star was to it 1:00 o'clock so it gave you a real perspective of just how far it was from the ground.

I watched it for about 30 min. And was Just yelling you have to see this your are not going to belive want I'm looking at.so our of the 4 people that had been watching it only one looked back at it and could find it in the sky and see it as well.

it was mind blowing just how big this thing was and it looked like it had no lines on it just smooth and round just a giant ring setting there in space .it was on an angle.so not looking at it straight on.

Looked for it the next morning before daylight and it was gone….

Sioux Falls, SD

Full Report Text:

We saw multiple flying objects moving in a synchronized way back and forth, staying still, and moving at incredible speed out of sight. This morning at about 11:20 AM, my daughters and I saw about 20 very large, low flying, shiny, white objects moving silently back and forth in a synchronized formation above us. My eldest daughter (13yr.

) saw them first, for about 15 seconds, before she ran to tell me. They were flying in a completely unfamiliar fashion. The sky was clear and it was sunny, so we had a sharp view of them.

The objects wove around each other, sometimes holding a position and hovering for a few seconds before rearranging. They also circled around and followed each other at a steady speed. After about two minutes they turned west and then north.

I quickly grabbed my phone to take a picture and ran outside. Unfortunately, by the time I had my camera on, the objects had reached a much higher altitude and started to leave. They flew north so fast that we lost sight of them within seconds.

I just caught them disappearing above our spruce trees. We can't tell if it was a trick of the light, but some appeared to be spheres, some ovals, and one may even have been disc-shaped. My youngest daughter (9 yr.

) believes she saw some of the objects break off and head east, stop, and then vanish in the same direction. The event lasted for 3 minutes at the most. We regret not being able to capture images of the objects more closely and can only send the attached video and 4 photos.

If you move the video slowly right in the beginning you can just make out the white objects right above the tree, disappearing in the distance.

Two stationery craft We noticed two lights in the western sky from Brandon, so these may have been over the northern part of Sioux Falls. The two lights appeared to be coming from the bottom of two craft that looked to the naked eye like they were boomerang shaped, but zooming in on the camera image, the shapes appear to be more like crosses - very thick (height-wise) crosses that would be several times taller than one would expect a plane to be. We checked back on them several times over the course of about half an hour and they were not moving.

I stepped outside to see if I could hear rotors, but could not. The last time we checked on them, they appeared further away, but were in the same position in the sky and relative to each other. NUFORC Note: Jupiter and Venus.

Bright light in sky during day time, then I see it. It was a grey round flying saucer. I was driving to work and it was glinting in the sun, fully encapsulated.

When it moved a little the left of my windshield, I seen the full object with my very two eyes about 2 miles out. I looked down to grab my phone to record it, but was still driving. When I looked down, and looked back up, it was already gone.

Shortly after I send helicopters flying around very fast, seemingly looking for something, and I presume it was this UFO.

Dark chrome disk I was driving on a back road to my office to work late and I was on the phone with my friend and she said omg look out side wtf is that! And she didn’t know I was enroute to my office and I looked out my car window and there was a huge dark chrome ship so close to the ground she was freaking out she was about 6/7 miles north of me telling me to look outside my house and wtf was that and I was actually driving and it was a huge ship I was so scared I didn’t hang up the phone to take a photo I literally thought this is going to be on national news. So everyone at her house saw it and myself driving on back road and my sons gf said she saw it too from her house. Then I posted on snap chat wth did I just see and someone messaged me with a video they took.

There was a row of like sliding glass door windows. Best I could describe it. The windows were across the middle of the ship.

There was lights coming out of the windows and flickering some blue and pinkish and the lights I could see outlines of bodies. I was shaking so hard. I have seen the satellites before this wasn't it.

Full Report Text:

Pilot observed two spherical shaped objects flying in formation below aircraft I am an FAA licensed private pilot. On June 26th, 2022 I was flying with my girlfriend from Sioux Falls, SD (KFSD) to Fargo, ND (KFAR). Roughly an hour and twenty minutes into the flight, I looked out the left side of the aircraft and observed two spherical shaped objects flying in formation below and to the left of my aircraft.

The objects were either reflecting light or glowing white in color. At first I figured they were other aircraft, however we were only flying at 3,000ft MSL and the objects appeared roughly 500ft below us. At this altitude and in my experience aircraft and birds are easily distinguishable.

I highly doubt that they were drones because I do not think I would have been able to see them, nor would I expect them to reflect light. As I continued to watch the objects they made a coordinated right hand turn (from the perspective of the objects) and soon disappeared from my sight. I made mention of these objects while I was watching them to my girlfriend, who claims she did not see them at first but did see them before they disappeared.

The time and location provided is an estimation, but in the general area.

looked like a bright light behind a V shaped object Looking S-SW at about 75 degrees up from the horizon. It was moving slowly to the east. The object appeared to be slightly smaller than the size of a full moon.

It appeared to be a bright light behind a distinct V shaped object. A cloud started to form above the V. The cloud was lit up by the light emitting from the object.

The cloud was moving away from the object, to the north, but it was also moving to the east at the same rate of speed as the object. The bright light and the V shape became dimmer as it moved to the east-south east, but there was a halo effect that was there until the last moments. The cloud dissipated at about the same rate.

I have watched the ISS fly by many times. This was much brighter. The distinct V shape that was visible early on was very interesting.

Could it have been the ISS?.

Observrved 2 bright glowing craft steady in sky. We took a drive on back roads this evening. Got back to the campground.

about 9. There was a girls baseball game in a nearby field.Got out of the Jeep and Enoch ( husband) jokingly said, look, your UFO'S.

well there they were. 2 of them. He thought maybe satellites or weather ballons.

( give me a break). But over a half hour they never moved. They were pretty far apart.

Un moving. But lower than the clouds. They were big.

We got out binoculars and watched them. They were sort of oval. They looked like if you took a long neon bulb and bent it like a balloon with ends touching in the middle like a tube balloon and tied the ends together.

They had a dark line in the center running lengthwise. Very brilliant white. They never went in any direction .

No other lights other than their brilliance. Clouds were moving. The moon was moving, but they remained still.

Passenger jets flew (under) them lower and military above them, but the were unnoticed, except after a half hour started gettin smaller indicating they were going straight up away. They got farther away passing through the clouds as they went getting smaller and smaller until they dissapeared beyond the clouds. Guess who is a believer now.
