This past weekend, I received a brief report of a small UFO hovering close to the ground south of the town of Fairview, PA. There were few details and no follow-up. I haven't notice any other recent reports in northwest PA. A little over two years ago, I received an intriguing eyewitness report of a craft landing in a wooded area near Fairview, PA (posted below), which included unknown humanoid beings. An investigation was conducted by a few of my colleagues...confirming something had definitely occurred. There had been other reports submitted to MUFON of activity nearby (one of those reports posted below). Once again, I'm asking the public and UFO enthusiasts to come forward with more details of the recent or previous events. First...the report I received in January 2013:
Hello...I'm writing you in an effort to confirm a unusual observation I had on October 16, 2012 at around 11:15 PM. I was driving home from work northbound on RT 20 West Ridge Rd. near Fairview, PA when I notice bright green lights descending into the woods behind a veterinary hospital. I immediately slowed and pulled into the lot behind the hospital. I could see several green lights in the woods and a few red and white lights. I got out of the car to get a better view. As I stood in front of my car, I started to hear a distinct 'chopping' sound coming from the woods as well as cracking noises. It actually sounded like several people were cutting down trees. The lights and the activity were about 50 yds. in front of me but I couldn't see any movement.
I stood there for about 10 minutes as the sounds continued. I was tired so I decided to leave for home. I figured that there were workers clearing land though this was near a residential location and working at night was a bit unusual.
As I made my way back into the car I noticed movement in an adjacent parking lot. The lot was lit enough to where I could see 2 figures moving away from me towards the woods. They looked like characters from a cartoon. The figures were about 5 foot tall and very thin. I couldn't see their faces but the heads had a peanut shape. They move swiftly but only their legs were moving. Every other parts of their bodies was rigid. There was also a white sash tied across the waist on both figures.
As I watched the figures go into the woods a whirling sound starting to come from the woods. Suddenly five huge green lights ascended from the woods, hovered for a second or two, then vanished. I think that the lights stretched out for about 150 ft. It was a very large craft.
The next day I walked through the woods where this incident occurred and noticed a few small trees in a particular area were cracked near the ground. There was nothing else out of the ordinary.
I decided not to mention what I witnessed and see if anyone had reported it to the local media. As of today, I have not seen any mention of this landing or the lights. I live in Fairview, PA and have not heard any mention from any resident. I rather not have my particulars disclosed at least until another similar report is made public. This is a small town and everybody is in everyone else's business, if you know what I mean.
Would you be kind enough to let me know of any reports in my area? Thank you...RS
After receiving the email, I found the following strange report in the MUFON CMS. It comes from the same general area and the descriptions are somewhat similar. I'm not sure these two incidents are related but I believe some investigation needs to be done:
Aliens running across the highway. UFOs landing on the side of the highway. being shot at by aliens. Multiple nights and being chased by UFO craft
Erie, PA - 10/17/2012 - 1:07am: My job requires me to drive at night.
In the past couple of months I myself my girlfriend, and my son. Have witnessed Aliens; the Grays; small ones running across Route 80 between 1 am and 3 am. They made my girlfriends vision foggy. They affected her mind. They looked like skinny Ethiopians running with backs perfectly straight perpendicular to the ground not leaning forward like a person running and there arms stayed at there side completely still no movement, not swinging like a normal person would run. Red lights landing in the trees brought us to the attention. I thought it was an explosion at first.
The red lights rose up again out of the trees and split into two and followed us down the highway for five miles. If I put on the breaks so would the UFO. If I gave it gas so did the UFO.
Now at 1 am in the past two nights 16th and 17th big bright green orbs have been coming straight down out of space aimed directly at my truck. They caused a tractor trailer to slam on his breaks last night in the middle of the highway and nearly crash. I feel they are shooting at me or something. It comes out of the sky and heads directly towards my truck.
My job requires me to travel this route. Im afraid but Im also starting to get mad. There is a small area where these things happen at least once a week. there is something going on in that area. A white light also landed on the side of the road a couple of feet by my truck. Just like the green lights coming out of the sky but this one was white. Route 80 and 322 intersecting 79 by Meadville.
If it happens again tonight Im taking my friend Friday with his gieger counter and if theres no radiation detected Im going into the woods after them. I want one of there ugly gray heads mounted above my fireplace. - MUFON CMS - full report
