Witness statement

Hanging out with some friends, when one of them noticed an odd object in the sky. we walked into the street to see what was going on, when we noticed strange lights in the sky. i took pictures and video of the instance. the objects seemed to just disappear, like either there was no more fuel, or they had reached such a distance that they vanished from perception.

Witness statement

On friday may12, 2017 I was leaving to go to the store. when I stepped outside I saw a bright red glowing light in the sky. For a split second I thought it was just a low flying airplane or maybe a helicopter.

After a few seconds I realized it was neither. there was no engine noise and it was moving way too fast. I pulled out my iphone and started recording. When I zoomed in it looked more like a yellowish/orange disc flying across the sky. there was pretty good detail.

I zoomed out to show the whole sky and when I zoomed back in it the object had clearly gained quite a bit of altitude. It continued on its path until it disappeared over the horizon. only took about 90 seconds, maybe even faster than that.

I was so amazed at what I was seeing that I didn’t pay that much attention to it. all I know is that I try to watch all shuttle and rocket launches from cape canaveral and I can view these from behind my house so I have a pretty good idea of how long it takes those rockets to leave sight. this was waaaaaay faster.

I have already reported this sighting and sent the video to a ufo group in florida who quickly responded that they think I took a video of venus or jupiter…Lol!

I have always been intrigued by astronomy and the possibility of life that exists other than how we know it. I can say with certainty that this was not a planet.
