UFOs: Eyewitness Sightings

The following group of UFO sightings were transcribed from a recent Coast to Coast AM show on July 21st:

Connie in South Carolina called in tell of her UFO sighting:

“I saw a great big huge white light. I'm coming home from work one night and when I made my turn off the road, the light looked like it was coming towards me. So I kept making my turn when I got up to where I needed to be to make another turn, I thought, Is this thing following me? So I went straight ahead and then I couldn't see it anymore but then when I got to the red-light where I have to make a left turn, that thing was smack right in front of me. There was just one great big huge light. I mean it was so big I don't even how to describe it. It was huge and it was so bright it was almost like those small LCD lights. It was as bright as that only huge! And so I was only going like three miles an hour and there was somebody behind me, so I know they had to see it too. But it went over me. I cracked my window a little bit on the driver's side and I could see things hanging down from it and the bottom of it looked, I mean, it was just huge! It looked like metallic, like a nickel color, I guess, you'd say and, but I heard nothing, absolutely heard nothing, and then it just came over me and then it just headed more east towards the beach. That's my story on that but I don't know what that thing was. From when I first saw it, I think that was, like, maybe five minutes. It was so low, like, it was almost, I could have reached out and almost touched it, if I had a longer arm. The bottom of it was like, it was in a circle, I could see that and I was actually scared at first because I thought it was a plane.”

Patty in Seattle, Washington called in to tell of her UFO sighting:

“I wanted to tell you that I've seen three UFOs - very odd incidents in the sky in south Seattle just in the last two weeks. I stay up all night. All of us Coasties do. Anyway, I'm waiting for the space shuttle to come by, you know, and I was just out. I'm always out scanning the skies. We live where there's a lot of airplanes but, you know, I've been around the airport for some 40 years so I know a plane from something else. Well, I was looking. I was looking at the moon and I just happen to have something catch my eye straight up overhead and it was this brilliantly glowing white orb. At first I thought it was a space shuttle but it wasn't due until 2:52 AM and this was at 2:22 AM and it it travelled for about 10 degrees of sky towards the east and then it powered up as bright as you could even imagine and then it went dim again and you could see it go down to the size of a tiny little star and go for about five or six more seconds and it just disappeared while all the rest of the stars were still visible. I have no idea what that was. I look straight out at Mount Rainier from here. I'm about probably 50 miles to the north of it and you see things around there. That's one of the other ones I saw. I was looking just to the right of Mount Rainier, I saw a circle of sparkling lights kind of like cop lights and they were all white and they were just flashing real fast. So I got my binoculars and looked at it and these whole circle of lights was travelling very slow to the east and inside of them there was two red ones and one blue one while the white ones remained kind of stable, the other three were kind of darting in and out of that circle and I don't know if that was some kind of military or, I can imagine what it could be, it wasn't helicopters. It was way too high up for helicopters, as a matter of fact is, that you know you can see above Mount Rainier and that's 14,000 some feet.”

William in Mississippi called in to tell of his UFO sighting:

“I've been helping a friend out with security job and been working nights the last six weeks and I'm naturally watching the sky and last night I happened to look up and noticed a star, noticed the color changes and, all of a sudden, it looked like it separated. It looked like more than one. So I went to my vehicle, got my binoculars out and started really studying it and it literally had a small light that broke away and would move around it. It did this for probably five minutes. I didn't have any way to get any close-up picture of it. The phone would not get it. It was just a colored blur but it just really, you know, after six weeks of studying the night sky, you know, 10 to 12 hours at a time, it was really, really amazing for me to see something like that in the east sky and I'm on the coast of Mississippi. The closest city is Gulfport. It was actually in the morning about this time. In fact the stars just rose about an hour and a half ago.”

Cindy in Redding, California:

“I have a UFO story. I live probably 80 miles south of the Oregon border in California and we live in a valley between Mount Shasta and Mount Lassen, so we sit way down in there and if you go southbound on our interstate I-5, you can see for like 30 or 40 miles down the foothills, if you look to the South. I was coming home from nursing school one day, about 2:00 in the afternoon. Broad daylight, no clouds, totally beautiful, sunny clear day, and as I look up I noticed something out of my peripheral vision. I looked up and there are three huge – HUGE! - and stacked like a pyramid or a triangle. There was 1, 2, 3 stacked like a triangle, huge UFOs. They were kind of almost cigar shaped but they were a little fatter and they had blunt ends. It didn't get pointy at the end. It was kind of a dull silver. They were all the same, dull silver. They weren't spinning, they weren't moving, there was no exhaust coming out, no windows, no nothing, and I'm like driving down the freeway thinking, I don't know how I didn't wreck my car since I just kept staring up. That was probably like 20 seconds maybe just driving down the freeway thinking, Can other people see this? because it's really crowded and then, on the left side, I see lights come flying past me and there was a highway patrol and the forestry department, everybody, lights on but no sirens, just flying down the center divider in the dirt, headed that way because they're probably like 20 miles south of me and it was like a couple thousand feet up in the air but enormous! This was back in '99 and I didn't have a cell phone. When I looked at all the lights passing me, they were just there for one more second and it's almost like they just backed up in the air and they were instantly gone, like disappeared. I didn't see them leave. It was crazy so I'm, okay, like, did they cloak themselves? It was just an instant and they were gone. I have a lot of family, it's long term Navy family, and I'm showing them clouds on slides over the years, going, okay, at that distance, and that's how big it was, I'm showing them clouds, how big do you think that is? And they're giving me, about a mile and a half to two miles in length is how big they think these were. They were, I mean, huge! Huge! I couldn't believe it. I mean three of them and they were a mile long. It's crazy. I know that sounds crazy.”

Essay on My UFO Experience

Before you laugh at the title, Essay on My UFO Experience, understand that there are a large number of people who believe that they have seen UFOs. If you have never been fortunate enough to have an encounter with an unidentified flying object (UFO) it's easy to understand your skepticism. After all, if these entities are truly unknown, then who's to say what they could be? However, if you have seen something unidentifiable in the sky above you, then you understand the reality of their existence.

For me, the experience happened as a young child in my parent's back yard. I had discovered a love for astronomy very young, and my parents purchased a telescope for me. It wasn't very high powered or exceptionally scientific, but it allowed me to see the craters on the moon and I found that fascinating.

One night, all alone out back, looking up at the moon something caught my eye off to the right just as I'd pulled back from the telescope. I looked up and there above me were three triangular shaped objects, each with lights at its three points. They did not move. They did not make the sound. They simply stayed in that position high above me.

I couldn't move. I couldn't speak. My mouth hung open in awe and wonder. I knew as I looked up at these alien lighted crafts, that I saw UFOs. Now, I had heard stories as a kid about aliens, and I always found the stories to be completely ridiculous. So, imagine my utter surprise and disbelief when these things arrived.

Needless to say, I packed up my telescope and headed off to bed. I turned the radio on in my room, as I always listened to music to go to sleep. What I heard shattered my resolve, there wasn't music but some robotic other-language conversation. I quickly shut the radio off and lay in bed terrified the rest of the night.

The next morning, for fear of being called a liar, or hysterical, I did not tell my parents. Instead, I went to my youngest brother who was always my friend and confidant. I had high hopes that he would hear me out with empathy and that he would stand to watch with me that night in case the craft made a second appearance. Though he agreed to do so, he laughed at me anyway. Sadly, I never saw the works again and have, for the most part, never shared my experience.

Over the years I have done periodic research on the subject and have learned a good many things. It is my desire to share some of that research with you here so that you too can understand just how dangerous the situation is.

A Little UFO History

It would appear that in 1960 the US attempted to learn if there was alien life in the galaxy. They listened in on the universe, so to speak, to see if any intelligible transmissions were occurring. While their research, Project Ozma, did not reveal anything useful, it did set the stage for further research and attempted "listening" to other scientists.

Of course, most people associate UFOs with Area 51, a highly classified Air Force facility in Nevada. In fact, there have been some movies and books based on what people think that they are doing there. And, if you read the piece in Popular Mechanics, The Real Story Behind the Myth of Area 51, it's easy to wave off the reality of UFOs as merely secret government aircraft. But what if that's just a ploy to keep people less interested in the odd things they see in the sky? reveals that the first documented UFO sighting in the US happened in 1947 whereas the Soviet Union's first documented experiences often relegate to times in which that government was testing secret military rockets. It seems easy to push aside what people believe to be UFOs by just placing the explanation on government flight and missile projects, but what if that's all a ruse?

• What if you see a UFO?
• Here are ten things to do if you encounter a UFO:
• Stay calm.
• Retain your objectivity.
• Record it on your phone.
• Voice record your experience as well.
• Ask other witnesses to do the same.
• Do not disturb any area in which it may have landed.
• Try to determine its size.
• Try to determine its distance from you.
• Be prepared to protect yourself or evade anything that might exit the UFO.
• Report the sighting to a UFO research organization.

When you realize that even NASA astronauts have encountered UFOs, you might be more hesitant to discount ordinary people who claim to have seen them as well. I hope this piece makes you more educated on the matter and more empathetic of the experience.

The Drenning Investigation: Mothman...Summoned Lifeform

I have been given a rare opportunity to present investigative information, from a current case, on the 'Phantoms Monsters' blog.

On June 13th, I posted Terrifying Encounter on the Seneca Trail. This account detailed an encounter a client and his daughter endured on a mountain road in West Virginia.

I have been given permission by my clients, a very cordial couple Jeff & Krystle Drenning, to describe some of the horror they have sustained since the day they visited the middle bunker at the TNT plant located outside of Point Pleasant, WV. Their story was presented on Paranormal Witness - The Mothman Curse, but the situation has continued to erupt in their home.

Krystle contacted me approximately 2 months ago, asking if I could help alleviate the malevolent activity. If you watch the video from the television program, you can get an idea of what has been going on in their life for these many years. I have conducted several sessions for this family, and have determined that they are dealing with 2 distinct entities. One is an ancient Earthbound energy, most likely from an early native people. That is the entity heard in the EVPs...and it has followed the Drennings since their first visit to Point Pleasant. It is also responsible for Jeff's encounter with the winged anomaly. I have long theorized that the Mothman, and other unknown winged beings, are multi-dimensional lifeforms...that can be summoned by high-energy incorporeal entities that reside on our Earth plane. I believe that these lifeforms are used in a variety of ways, which includes deployment as a sentry or watcher. The second energy, which is causing poltergeist-like activity, was most likely present at their current home when they moved in. The combination of these energies is reeking havoc on the family.

I personally believe that Jeff & Krystle encountered the ancient native Earthbound energy in the TNT bunker...and unwittingly welcomed it into their lives while conducting the EVP session. This is not an uncommon phenomenon. Experienced and novice paranormal investigators alike, can be subjected to these energies...resulting in an attachment that can cause many undesirable consequences in the future. It is vital that some form of physical and psychic protection is in place, before any investigating begins.

I am in the process of assessing which remote methods I will use in order to help this family find peace. If you are interested in some of my work, please go to Astral Perceptions Universal.

'Paranormal Witness' talked to Jeff Drenning about the terrifying events up until 2014:

Have you always been generally interested in out-of-the-way adventures?

We've both had lifelong interests in the paranormal/unexplained, but this was our first foray into attempting an 'investigation.' Part of the allure that drew us to this area was the Mothman legend (mainly the Richard Gere film, The Mothman Prophecies), but also the American history that has taken place in the area as well.

When you first heard the words on the recording, what did it feel like?

Utter disbelief. It's hard for words to capture the feeling we experienced upon hearing those first few words. We nearly went into a state of shock. We barely spoke a word to each other for the next few hours while we attempted to process what had happened.

When these things started happening in the house, did you connect them to the recording?

Definitely. Prior to capturing the initial recordings there was no activity of any form; we led normal lives.

The night where the cabinet opened and dishes shattered, and then when the spoon wound up in your bed, what did you think at the time?

We knew it was another manifestation of the activity we had been experiencing. It had taken many forms at this point to garner our attention, but we now realized it was getting more physically aggressive.

When you started researching Mothman, what was the most interesting bit of information you discovered?

Beyond comparison we found the most interesting aspects of the story to be those that weren't typically known. We hadn't heard about anything outside of the core Mothman sightings until our research led us to read John Keel's The Mothman Prophecies. The events in Point Pleasant involved far more than the appearance of a winged cryptid. There were also strange phone calls to some of the Mothman witnesses, visits from 'Men in Black,' poltergeist-like activity and rampant UFO sightings throughout the region. We found that our experiences mirrored many of those that took place in the late 1960s.

Have you ever had a moment where you tried to think up non-paranormal explanations to what happened? What were they?

Our initial reaction to hearing the recordings was to somehow rationalize it. We attempted to explain it away via the possibility of someone having followed us and somehow managing to reply to our questions on the recordings.

This, however, would have been an impossibility. The bunker is in a completely desolate area, with only one access point (which we used). There were no other cars parked along the road where we parked, we saw no other people on the trail. We were completely alone, beyond a shadow of any doubt.

Also, the way the bunkers are constructed in a dome shape causes the slightest sound to reverberate and echo. If someone else was speaking from outside, we'd have heard the echo of their voice (just as we heard the echo of our own). The voice in the recording had no echo at all. It defied any reason we attempted to place on the situation.

As for the activity that followed, no, there is no possible way it has a rational explanation. Anything that happened to us and we attempted to debunk, we came up glaringly short. Simply put, there is no explanation for what we have experienced.

When did you decide to go back to the bunker to communicate with the Mothman?

We have always felt that whatever we communicated with at the bunker was some sort of ancient intelligence, which we believe to be connected in some manner to Mothman and the events that took place in Point Pleasant during the late 1960s. We went back the next day to attempt to further communicate with the entity. In the beginning we didn't feel threatened; we felt as if something was reaching out to us for some reason, almost as if we were 'chosen' by it.

WHAT IS THAT TERRIFYING GOO?! What was the texture like? Where did it come from? What on Earth?

We have no idea what the substance was. It was a sticky, earthen-feeling texture. Almost like an extremely sticky form of mud. It would literally appear out of thin air. Krystle was once hit in the back with it while her back was turned towards the wall. It somehow manifested behind her. That was the scariest aspect concerning the goo, that it would literally appear out of nowhere with no warning.

How did you feel when you left the house?

When we moved out of the house, we initially felt hopeful that we could leave all of it behind. However, we were rightfully wary in the belief that if it followed us from Point Pleasant it could follow us anywhere.

Has anyone ever expressed skepticism in the story? What do you tell them?

Yes, but we simply state that what we experienced actually happened and all we can do is tell our story. The rest is up to them to decide. We're typically very guarded in who we share our story with.

What kind of advice would you give someone who finds themselves realizing there is a presence?

First and foremost, they need to realize that it isn't some type of game. Very real damage can happen. Don't be afraid to seek help, regardless of whether or not you think people will believe you. They need to know there are things that can be done to empower yourself. We hope to turn our negative experience into a positive, and possibly help those in similar situations. We want to shed light on the fact that there is more out there than just haunted houses.

How is everything now?

We still have experiences to this day. Just last night we had knocking on our bedroom door. A few weeks ago I was touched on the shoulder by an unseen hand, and Krystle was awoken by a smack to the face. These are only a fraction of the continued experiences we've had. We've had a priest bless our home twice, which seems to help for a limited time. However, the priest has said that he believes an exorcism may be warranted.
