It also caused a 7 car pile up on pear tree road because every one driving was looking up! This was about 3pmish View Report

Orbs Exiting Vortex
November 9, 2023 - Canton, North Carolina

High in the sky looking south it was kind of a bowl of spaghetti brighter than Venus, and 12 stars came out of it, and went a ways and disappeared. It appeared to be the end of a wormhole with 12 bright stars coming out, and as soon as they were done, it all blinked out, and they were all brighter than Venus, which was in the sky.!!

Two White Orbs with Extraterrestrials
August 17, 2023 - Mayodan, North Carolina

Two white orb’s floating above my home. I took 3 live photographs with 3 second video with each photo. The photographs clearly shows extraterrestrials floating around the orb’s. I photographed this encounter 12 days after the last encounter, which I reported to you concerning the August 5, 2023 encounter. My name is James Stilwell and this is my 39th encounter in the last 3 years. Each encounter was photographed with extraterrestrials in the majority of the photographs. I also have reported to the Rockingham county, NC authorities all encounters and have shown the photographs to them. They told me that they had no jurisdiction over this and then suggested that I could sign a NDA. What a shame, that their vehicles have printed on them, to serve and protect, and in God we trust. Please also read the article with the Grey area news titled ufo observer reports sightings with photographs to Rockingham county authorities. Please include this report as another encounter that I’m requesting an investigation by someone who has the experience somewhat comparable to myself if that’s possible. In a world with such dishonest people, I now understand that my intellectual property will never have value, but I say unequivocally that in an honest world that it should be worth billions. I have approximately photographed 500 Extraterrestrials with dozens of their crafts, I feel blessed and cursed at the same time. Thanks for your interest in peoples reports. Please prey for the dishonest people in our government, our lives and safety are at stake and our government lies with every breath to conceal their knowledge of the truth about these entities and their technology. I’m a former US Navy veteran, NAS Fallon Nevada. Area 51 is a beautiful place. View Report

Multiple Close Encounters
August 5, 2023 - Mayodan, North Carolina

Two orbs floating about 100 feet above my home. I photographed them at 9:11 pm. I took 4 live photographs which clearly shows numerous extraterrestrials in the photos. Also was witnessed at Farris memorial park 4 days later by 4 police officers and 2 citizens. This information is on the NUFORC report index for NC. This encounter photographed occurred in Mayodan nc. This is my 38th encounter since 2020 and I photographed each encounter with extraterrestrials in the majority of the photographs. Please also read the article with the Grey area news titled ufo observer reports sightings with photographs to Rockingham county authorities. I wrote that article to share the truth with everyone. These reports will never cause our government to tell you the truth, but you just read the truth from myself. US Navy vet James Stilwell, I am not a coward like most people, people need to wake up and educate themselves instead of saying they don’t exist, just read the Bible and then you have the truth about this over and over again.

April 12, 2023 - Fayetteville, North Carolina

Got home last night at 9:30, when i got out of the car and was waiting for my husband, I looked up in the sky because its been extremely clear the last few days and we saw what at first looked like a star moving around the sky, but it was fast and moving in different directions, making 90 degree turns, stopping, going, moving back and forth, fading out and then popping up again...we watched this for about 10 minutes (until our necks began to hurt). It was way too high to be a plane, couldnt have been a satellite moving like that...nothing i know of can maneuver like that....and no it wasn't a drone, it would've had to been a huge drone if it was visible from that distance, it appeared to be above the stars...idk View Report

March 8, 2023 - Wilmington, North Carolina

Second time ive seen this. Driving south on hwy 17 just north of wilmington nc and far away in the SE sky i see a "contrail burst" all of a sudden a sharp change in the direction and i think im going to watch a crash, sudden direction change again OVER the contrail. Turned on a dime! (the people inside would be pudding) Then acceleration like nothing ive seen before away from its contrail and gone in a blink. I continue driving south watching the sky and a bright possibly silver sphere is there and gone. Same sighting 6 mos ago or so but no sphere. I pulled off the road 6 mos ago to watch it because i seriously couldnt believe what i was seeing and thought something was crashing. I have a still shot from the first event which im trying to locate. Whatever happened was well south of wilmington possibly over brunswick county, pretty high up. sorry its not more technical. "Damnit Jim, Im a gardener , not a rocket scientist" hope this is useful. 2) amber orb 2016 wilmington nc- following an aircraft, blinked out. View Report

March 1, 2023 - China grove, North Carolina

My name is Dana Morton. I live in China Grove NC . On Monday night at around 8pm I saw 2 large bright lights side by side looking to be tree top level very bright I looked at them for about 15 minutes they were very clear toward the western sky as I WATCHED A thin fog started to cover both lights when at the same time they both went completely dark and were no longer visible and there was no longer any fog. I thought could it have been two satellites until they both disappeared. I made this observation because of the fact I have never seen anything like that. I consider this event in my mind something unidentifiable. I am 68 years old and consider this event seriously. View Report

UFO Report #: 1494
February 28, 2023 - Asheville , North Carolina

Both of the crafts were completely still, hovering in the sky, no movement what so ever. No sound either. And I have a video I will be sending with this information. Weird thing is that the UFOs we witnessed to our eyes the crafts both had 3 or 4 different colored lights that were either blinking and or blinking while rotating around or at the center of the these crafts. However as u can see on the video they appear to be only having white lights on the crafts or they themselves are emitting, or glowing, white light only. The colored lights both my friend and myself witnessed on these crafts that were appearing on them the entire time we were watching them were green, blue, red and possibly white or yellow but so dim from my angle I couldn't make out te color of the 4th lighter it was just cause the lights were blinking all around the craft so from my point of view I could have just been seeing the nextklspace in the light sequence on the ship but only a partial view of that next sequence. Also, strangely enough, I remember video taping a bit more than 1 minute and 33 seconds of video. We watched these hovering perfectly still for about 15 minutes or so. I believe the first 5 minutes we were outside I didn't have my phone. Then I ran inside grabbed my phone and started recording and did so for at least 5 minutes or more. But some reason the video shows otherwise. I'm not an exaggerating type of person and I've always been good with judging time frames and distances also. I'm a realist and have always had an investigative type mind set and personality. So giving a statement while exaggerating is not in my style. So if u have any questions please call me or email me.

It was my mothers birthday. I can’t remember if it was 2015 or 16 but I was around 12-13 years old. It was late. We went outside to use my mothers telescope that she just got. They are setting it up. Im standing on my porch waiting. I get an alert on my phone (iphone 4?) like a system/emergency alert that reads “Strange metal detected”. I believe my mother also got one on her old google phone. Weird right. I look up in the sky, and I see why I got the alert. There is a flying object, round, moving insanely fast in the distance up in the sky. Behind it, it very clearly a jet chasing it. Now I can’t remember if it was two ufos and one jet or one ufo and two jets. But it is something I will never forget witnessing. View Report

September 13, 2014 - Greensboro, North Carolina

Sometime around maybe September 2014 me and my boss were staying in a rental house in the outskirts of Greensboro NC while we were out of town working. After work one evening me and my boss were sitting in the back yard talking when I noticed out of the corner of my eye these red spheres flying. When I say red it looks like the red glow you would see in a coal bed of a hot fire. There were 5 or 7 of them flying in an uneven V formation flying Parallel to the fence line on the property. It’s hard to tell how low they were but they seemed to be maybe the size of a small plane and flying lower than any plane I have ever seen except military planes. They continued flying in the same direction when I asked my boss at the time if he was seeing it too. He replied yes as we kept watching them fly by with no sound. After they got maybe three quarters of the way over the property and trees they started scattering, making very erratic sharp turns, angles and movements really drew your eye to it because i have never thought anything could move like they were never hitting one another or making any noise. Then as they were about to fly over the tree line at the back of the property they formed back into a V formation and flew out of sight keeping the same speed throughout if I remember right. My boss at the time told me not to say anything because he was afraid he might loose his contracts due to people thinking we were crazy. The next day I told some of our colleagues and my boss even acknowledged he saw something but that was it. I haven’t really told that many people till I started seeing pictures and videos on YouTube that were very similar or the same spheres we saw. I’m hoping that by writing this report I can gain some new knowledge of what we saw because I don’t know but one other person to talk to about all this. View Report
