UFO Report #: 1879
May 28, 2024 - Reading, Pennsylvania

I was stargazing at 10:30 PM watching planes flying east to west and then observing the Big Dipper to my north. It was a clear night. Almost directly above me I saw a bright light that i thought was Venus. But it was moving so i thought it was a jet with its landing light on since it was so bright. But it moved like a satellite south to north and visibly dimmed a second later and then faded away as it moved into the Big Dipper. A few minutes later a much dimmer light more like usual satellites followed the same path and then also faded away in the same area. It did not flash like an iridium flare satellites do just after sunset. View Report

Boomerang UFO with Central Flashing Light
April 8, 2024 - Manheim, Pennsylvania

Approximately 11 a.m., riding with my husband on Rt. 283, near Lancaster County, PA. Saw a red, slow-flying object in a shape resembling a boomerang with a flashing light in the center. It was not a plane, helicopter nor blimp. It was large like those though. I took 2 photos of it with my cell phone, zooming in and seeing it as I took them. For the first photo, there were wires in the way, so I took the second photo. Although I saw it with my eyes while I took the photos, it did not appear on the photos. There is a circle in the clouds where the object would have been on the first photo. It totally disappeared from view after I took the photos. View Report

Silver Cylindrical Ships with No Wings
March 21, 2024 - Thorndale, Pennsylvania

I have witnessed ships day and night for 3 years. Daytime silver cylindrical ships no wings. When they turn there are red lights. I get their attention and they backup and hover for many seconds. I see 15-20 per day. Clearly not airplanes. At night many hover above my sky. Bright white lights with arms. Two main ones hover above me and follow me as I walk my dog. I never fear them. I was in the Hospital Oct and Dec and one was outside my window both times. I meet with them outside my home above every clear night. I have photos. In addition, twice last year, once walking a path a large bright ORB appeared in front of me lasting only several seconds and then outside my back porch again lasting only seconds. But, last night outside my back porch up higher in sky I witnessed that large white ORB and it hovered back and forth above me but didn't get real close to see anything but light. I watched it for 30 min. View Report

July 29, 2023 - New hope, Pennsylvania

I am a former naval flight surgeon and nasa dod flight doc as background. At 2123 on 29JUL23. Myself and two other observed an unfamiliar string of lights with different brightness and twinkling moving at a uniform speed and uniform intervals from west to east. There were partial low level clouds and Newark approach traffic in the air at the same time. These lights were a much higher elevation than the normal air traffic. The lights were white. It almost seemed like tracer fire but white. The speed was similar to tracer fire and in a straight line. The chain of lights took up about 1/10 of the visible sky and disappeared above the cloud cover to the east. I have never seen anything like this in my 54 years. The whole thing lasted about 20 seconds. I have video. Addendum about 2150 several dim slow moving single white lights without flashers at very high altitude followed in the same general direction. These seemed possibly like our planes giving chase? This took place a day after the space x falcon heavy was launched and may have something to do with that? View Report

February 26, 2023 - Newport, Pennsylvania

Can’t put into words the sounds and sightings I’ve now encountered / witness 4-5 times. I live along the juniata river, across is game lands and train tracks. Both sides are very steep and not easy to acesss. I’ve explored it since i could walk, now later in life I’m truly putting together a consistent list of what i now believe is a portal / passage way in the very steep mountain of these game lands. From Watching a train go by while I’m cat fishing to suddenly in seconds just disappears with only a beam of bright light go directly up and complete silence. The noise of the trains I don’t mind but when i fish i usually am not near my poles so i use Bells to hear if i have a bite. So when this train goes by it’s louder then usually, and annoyed me. And all the sudden the normal 3-5 minute pass by ends at the VERY certain spot that I’ve seen a glowing green light appear. But before that light appeared back in 2020, seconds before it you could hear Trees coming down or something crashing / separating. And bam glowing green light comes out of the side of the mountain. I don’t know what happened, but when i looked at my phone nearly 3 hours passed by when to me i should of only been a couple minutes. And I’ve seen other stuff but I’ve justified them as maybe other humans or kids were causing those. And this is only the start of some stuff i keep seeing without even looking for it. I’m just a River rat who lives to fish and hunt in my back yard. View Report

February 25, 2023 - Nazareth, Pennsylvania

I noticed 2 bright lights in the sky. I watched for over 10 minutes to make sure they weren’t airplanes. Much brighter than stars in the sky. They were in a horizontal line from each other. I checked the sky for a few days after and nothing in the same spot or anything that looked similar. Last night 2/28/23 I noticed same 2 lights again on my way to work. I have travel the same road for over 7 years and have never seen them before. Not sure what they are but I pay attention to the skies every night and these lights stuck out and seemed very odd.

UFO Report #: 1237
February 2, 2023 - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

I was outside smoking a cigarette with my dogs as I very often am. It was dusk and the sky was overcast. As I was looking up directly over my head coming from over my left shoulder the clouds became disrupted. The only way to describe it was as if you were looking at the clouds through the heat radiating from a fire. It was cold outside and there were no fires burning. As this object kept moving forward I could see the cloud disruption took the form of a large triangle. It wasn't moving fast so I had a good 20 seconds seeing this triangle moving forward as it vanished in the distance. I swear to God I witnessed this. If anyone is interested feel free to contact me.

December 14, 2022 - Hartstown, Pennsylvania

Noticed an unusual bright light. I almost thought it was a planet at first. The more I stared at it I realized that it was moving a little almost floating. About five minutes later I noticed at least 8, what I assume were helicopters(had blinking lights) forming a circle around it. I watched 1 move real close to the bigger light, turn around and leave the area. It moved in ways that even I know helicopters can't move. Real erratic in its movements. Almost like it was searching an area. More helicopters moved in. I've been watching for the last hour! View Report

Took dog out as usual 6am.

Star like object moving back and forth in the sky as well as side to side. At first glance it looked to be a shimmering star but when I observed it for a few seconds it would move, but it couldn’t be a star because stars don’t move back and forth and side to side. Definitely a UFO. View Report

May 22, 1992 - Lone pine, Pennsylvania

I’ve never told anyone except my wife about my sighting so hear we go. I lived in semi rural Pennsylvania south of Pittsburgh. I was in 5th grade. I’m now 41. At the time I was 11. Anyway I was having some weird things happening for quite a few weeks leading up to my experience mainly hearing something walking on the roof and seeing ghost like things I can’t explain. But during these several weeks of unexplained things I woke up every night between 3-4am to use the bathroom. Not sure why just what was going on. On the night of my sighting I woke up to use the bathroom and noticed the inside of the house was being lit up and then it would go dark the only way I can explain it was like a disco ball. When I got up to use the bathroom the was some sort of craft in the front of my house I could see the base it was V shaped but I could only see very little. At the bottom of the V was this light that was spinning at a very slow speed but the way it spun to this day I can’t explain. The light was not bright enough to hurt you eyes it was a bright fluorescent light but not hard to look at. The way the ball at the bottom of the craft was spinning had this wobble to it and when it would spin every crack of the house would be lit. At the time the home was a double wide home and my mother slept with her door shut and I shared a room with my brother. No one woke up. When I seen this I remember standing in the bathroom trying to figure out what I’m the hell is outside. Do I yell run what. I just stayed calm and walked fast to the bedroom hurried up got in bed and I remember the lights going on for at least another 10-15 minutes. I fell asleep at some point and to this day it has haunted me. What in the hell was it. This sighting was within 30ft. That light will never leave my brain. I know this story sounds crazy but I just wanted to get it off my chest. I lived in the country but had very close neighbors. No one ever said anything about sightings. I’ve kept this inside for years. The location was Lone Pine, Pennsylvania south of Washington Pa. View Report
