Message: Around 10:10pm I live in Hanover, PA near MD-30, and my husband and I saw a bright blue light in the east-southeast sky moving from east to west (more south though) so it looked to be FALLING rather than moving across the sky.

It grew in brightness and started trailing what looked to be sparks. We thought it might have been a plane going down, but then it brightened a bit more and disappeared completely.

We contacted the local news stations about it (to be sure it WASN’T a plane) and were told “it’s a clear night to see stuff like that.” Hmm… nice explanation. Ha.

So someone else answered our email via phone and said a scientist in nearby Jefferson, PA saw “orbs” around 10:30 and wanted to know if the “incidents” tie together. is who called us.

Anything else, please contact me at and we can discuss further. 🙂

Location: Ellicott City, Maryland; MD-100

Message: On August 13th, around 9:00pm my husband and I were driving on route 100 East. I saw a really bright light in the air hovering over the fields of Howard High School. I had my husband pull off onto the shoulder because From far away I thought it was a helicopter with the spotlight on, but as we got closer it was no helicopter.

We got a really good look at it. it was a disc shaped and silver it had 2 bright white lights on each side that also went to the bottom. It was very still hovering over the fields of Howard High School. I went to get my phone out of my daughters diaper bag to take a picture, but by the time I got the phone out to take a picture it took off very fast going south.

It was very low and my husband and I have never seen anything like this in our lives before. We have no idea what it was it was definitely an unidentified flying object. It was also very close to the ground and we got a very good look at it we tried to find where it went so we could get a picture but it just disappeared. I know people probably think we are crazy when we tell them but I don’t care I know what I saw. I now believe there is something out there.

Portland, Oregon, USA; August 6, 2008

Name: S. Anderson

Date of Event: noon on August 6th

Location of Event: Portland, Oregon while riding portland aerial tram

Message: This is pretty strange and I don’t know what is actually on this footage but my friend was visiting Portland from Germany and he was taking some sightseeing videos of downtown Portland while riding the Portland aerial tram. When he uploaded the video to his computer he saw something flying over the city that shot off into the sky in a speed and angle that we don’t think could possibly be a plane or helicopter.

Problem is I just don’t know how else to explain what it was. He said no one saw anything when he was in the tram at the time either. At any rate I’ll leave it up to you to decide- we posted it on youtube to see if anyone else might have seen something similar at the time but haven’t heard anything yet.
