Veteran U.S. Naval Aviator Witnesses UFO in Missouri « The Canadian Headlines Newspaper
A veteran naval aviator and his wife watched a teardrop-shaped object with amber lighting on the sides and red lights on the nose, top, and tail, move over Old Monroe, MO, on April 16, 2010, with behavior no aircraft could accomplish, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.
“I am a 14 year veteran of Naval Aviation with over 5000 hours in type aircraft (P3B/CUII Orion) and I know aircraft behavior,” the witness stated. “No aircraft I know of can change direction this abruptly and cover that much distance in such a short period of time.”
The couple first observed the object over Old Monroe.
“The object then covered the distance between Old Monroe and Moscow Mills in approximately 5 seconds while abruptly taking an upward attitude, then disappearing instantly.”
Old Monroe is a city in Lincoln County, population 250, on the east side of central Missouri.
The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Missouri MUFON State Director Debbie Ziegelmeyer investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update.
MO, April 16, 2010 – Observed a stationary light initially thought to be a planetary object but then moved rapidly west. MUFON Case # 22896.
My wife and I were at Cuivre River State Park at the Equestrian Campground. We had gotten our horses settled in and were getting ready to sit down by the fire and relax. My wife noticed a bright object in the sky that was stationary or possibly moving toward us. I first thought it was a planetary object, but that didn’t make sense based on location and the time of the year. The brightness of the object caught our attention.
We got out our binoculars and as we watched, the object began moving West at a fairly rapid speed.
The town of Old Monroe is about 14 miles South East as the crow flies from where we were camped. It appeared (based on cell tower locations and watertowers) that the object was over or near Old Monroe.
In the binoculars, the teardrop shaped object had amber lighting on the sides and red lighting on the nose, top, and tail. The object then covered the distance between Old Monroe and Moscow Mills in approximately 5 seconds while abruptly taking an upward attitude, then disappearing instantly.
We were both astounded by the behavior of the object and the speed at which it departed our view, and also the colorings and shape.
I am a 14 year veteran of Naval Aviation with over 5000 hours in type aircraft (P3B/CUII Orion) and I know aircraft behavior. No aircraft I know of can change direction this abruptly and cover that much distance in such a short period of time.
I’m hoping others saw what we saw and will come forward.
