UFO Report #: 1860
April 9, 2024 - Cleveland , Ohio

During the eclipse we saw something moving and even video tape some of the event but didn't get good footage just sound and moving around with the camera it was so horrible that we missed it. But it was moving faster than anything we've ever seen higher than anything we've ever seen and quieter no sonic booms and should have been a couple at least. View Report

Amber orb Intercepted by Helicopters
January 3, 2024 - Columbus, Ohio

Approximately 12:50 am, January 3, 2024 over Sullivant ave going towards Georgesville rd in Columbus Ohio: there were sounds of a large helicopter that I was looking for, and could not find from the direction the sound was coming from. Only to see it (the helicopter) DIRECTLY in front of us, I look to my left to see quite a large ball of orang/red light (like a soft color warm light) that is definitely much larger than a spotlight in a air craft. It had a tail from movement of the same color light and was rapidly moving at 50-60degree angle downwards. It became in my rear view at this point which I as the passenger was interested and instead of it continuing it's trajectory towards the ground it stoped for a moment (I could see it in the reflection of passenger mirror above the street between buildings) then quickly changed course almost as soon as I saw it with my eyes and appeared to "duck" behind the buildings it was in relative location to.... horizontally. After that I didn't see it again but if anyone saw it I would like to see what you're thinking or know it was. It sounded like multiple helicopters were in the area also in relative location to said object. ( I think i have an idea of what this may be) but it definitely was not a helicopter or falling asteroid as it didn't not immediately make impact and shifted from a downward slanted trajectory to an horizontal one after making a momentary pause mid air. I first saw object at what I think as less than 5 miles from the surface of the Earth. Both visually confirmed helicopter and ball of light appeared to be at the same height as far as distance from the surface I am unsure exactly, but quite low but not low enough...I was mesmerized instantly as my previous need to visually identify the sound was met with a sight that was not quite what I had anticipated to see after the echo of the helicopter invaded my ear drums to the point they are itchy and hurt from the wave. as my need to locate the source of the sound which i still do not believe was coming from the one helicopter that I was able to locate visually. Time is 1:24 am and I will be ready for information on your experience or thoughts!! But my insides just want to see it again it made me feel fuzzy warm inside. View Report

Close Encounter
January 3, 2024 - Galloway, Ohio

Pt 2: I don't sleep well but the same evening the same light came out and found me about 45 minutes from original location and sight. It was 4 am and I had woken up with a quickness and looked out my window (the car, life is complicated rn) and I saw it come zooming from no where at a 45 degree angle only to stop when it noticed me noticing it in the side mirror. It went back and fourth and up and down multiple times then it started making its way towards me: directly. It stopped when I was attempting to wake my partner (to no avail) and then it danced for a moment before taking off what appeared to be backwards. This isn't my first experience but it's my first conscious experiences with this particular entity and I don't know what to make of it. I just knew I needed to wake up and that it was there and it wanted me to wake up to see it. I don't know if I should just let it come next time it comes to me but I can't help but think I don't have a choice either way. It doesn't feel bad but I can't make that assumption. View Report

September 1, 2023 - Canfield, Ohio

High above land, low in the sky a light went from steady to blinking between red, bright white, and green. It was steady as it hovered in the sky. After 10 minutes it darted right before descending, returning to original position, moving left and disappearing. It reappeared at least 4 times in 3 hours, spending roughly 10 to minutes in the sky, moving in seemingly random directions before disappearing from sight each time. Bases on sky location it has to be roughly the size of a car. View Report

February 28, 2023 - Delaware, Ohio

I am a student at Ohio Wesleyan University. At around 8:00PM EST. Night is clear, not a single cloud. Was walking to the university dining hall and decided to stop and look up at the night since Ohio rarely has clear nights like this. Watching the lights of three 737s in the distance and I see the silhouette of a dark triangle pass over me, above the residential halls and going east. Solid black shape with three white-yellow lights at each tip of the triangle. Not zooming but still moving at a fairly high speed. No sense of scale but it seemed fairly large and didn’t seem to pass super high over the buildings. Made absolutely no noise. View Report

As I was leaving my sister's house in Urbana Ohio to head home to London Ohio, two very bright lights were in the sky. Appeared to be stars but brighter than any star I have seen.

I was driving home with my friends when I saw a straight line of lights in the sky. At first they looked like stars, but as I got closer to home, it looked like nothing other than a UFO. The line of lights got longer, like I was getting closer. Once I was under it and I turned around to look, it was gone. I turned around and parked at McDonald’s to look and nothing could be seen.

I at first thought it was maybe a plane or a helicopter but then I realized it was too high up to be one then it started moving up and down and side to side too fast to be a plane or helicopter. Then there was another one close to it that appeared then the one disappeared and the one left started coming towards my direction pretty fast . So I went inside. View Report

November 14, 2022 - Chillicothe, Ohio

I am currently attending school at the RecW in Chillicothe Ohio. I was standing outside on the road that the school in located on facing south west (although the road itself leads south in a more straight direction, this was at a bend in the road) . When I first walked out I noticed three bright lights that formed a triangle if you connected the points. I thought it was some weird planes at first because I saw what looked like the 2 flashing lights that would be on a plane in the night sky, one green one red. Before I had a chance the think about how strange it was I saw the sky light up with many more lights. There were at least 15 that lit up in a formation similar to migrating geese and about 10 others that were more scattered both above and below the formed ones. When the lit up however they all deviated slightly as if they still had a small amount of kinetic energy and were floating slightly. The closest reference to what it looked like are videos of bombs being being dropped in Gaza and the anti aircraft guns shooting them down. The orange glow in particular except most of them glowed in and out in a 2 second window. I saw them around 6:50 pm but maybe a little before. They looked 3 times bigger than Jupiter on a clear night. The whole sighting lasted maybe 10 seconds. I have never seen anything like before and I don't think I will ever see anything like it again. I had always hoped I would have some sort of ufo experience but I never expected to see so many lights in the sky and have no idea what I'm looking at. View Report

August 20, 2016 - Warrensville heights, Ohio

My grandson and son were throwing a hula hoop up in the air. My son said mom go get your binoculars. When I looked up through the binoculars, I saw a round craft with a silver round window in the front and with a red stripe on the bottom. Not from it was a mechanical looking bird flying that was white with a red stripe on the bottom. The mechanical bird flew into a regular bird. When I passed the binoculars to my son and looked up with naked eyes I noticed six crafts in the sky. They were spaced apart by two's. They moved in two ways only next to each other horizontally then one above the other one, then back horizontally next two each other. Then my son pointed in the direction of my back yard and I saw two small circles above the tree that resembled dandelions in the stage when they are white and we picked them and blew them away as children. I posted it on Facebook asking did anyone see anything strange in the sky. Well all I got was the sun. I did not stay home to watch. My family left for my husband's company annual picnic.

Fast Moving triangular Craft
September 1, 2013 - East liverpool, Ohio

First, my date is off, it was in the fall of 2013. I was raking leaves. From the West an object flew East. This object(like a triangle) was moving faster than any jet. There was no sound. I estimate it was 3000' above ground. It was like it went slow motion over me. I could not talk about it for weeks, thus my date is off. I believe it effected my recall. It was very weird what I witnessed that day. I would like to add, I served in the US Navy. I worked many hours on the flight deck of a aircraft carrier. I have seen super sonic flights of fighter aircraft. I estimate this object to be going 2500 mph at least. I have looked for years to see if this ever was reported. I have found nothing. It past me, entering into Pa. I am in Ohio. 43920. I would add more to the right person. View Report

Orb only visible with night vision
October 15, 2010 - Sidney, Ohio

I was hunting for coyotes at night. I was standing in the edge of a woods while a corn field was being shelled when I noticed a dim light coming through the tree tops at about 20 feet above the ground. I was using a pair of gen 3 pvs 7 when I saw it. It was around the size of a volley ball or a basket ball. I lowered the pvs 7's and I could not see it. I watched it as it came through the tree tops and stopped just outside the woods as 1 of the combines was coming. It sit there as the combine was turning around it changed position 2 times like it was looking at it from different angles. After the combine started the other way it took off to the South West. It was hard to judge the speed but I would guess 60 to 70 mph was as fast as it went and you could not see it without night vision and it stayed at the same elevation until it was out of sight. If there was a pilot in it he would have had to be very small. I think it had to be some kind of probe. If it knew I was there it showed no sign of it. I have never heard of a UFO that could only be seen through night vision. View Report

I was very young and went to bed and the next I remember was lying on a table and not being able to move anything but my head. It was a large dark room. I could see a lot of equipment but I couldn’t tell what they were. I could hear people moving around, I guess they were people but I never saw anyone. There was a monitor above me and it had lines moving across the screen and making terrible noises! This happened to me for several nights. I hated noise it was making! On the last night I started screaming and all of a sudden I was in my bed and I rolled out and fell on the floor and went screaming to my Mom! I was born in 1948 and our TV had a round screen. The monitor was square. I had never seen a square screen before! I have seen several UFOs in my life time. I can still see the room I was in, in my mind! View Report
