Calera, Alabama, USA; January 16, 1985

Name: Kevin H.

Date of Event: January 16, 1985

Location of Event: Calera, Alabama

Message: A Boomerang Shaped UFO

Approx: 7:30 – 8:00

I was outside of our house sitting on the hood of my car listening to a basketball game over the radio, because the station came in better on my car radio. There was some white cumulus clouds in the night sky.

I was looking up at the clouds when I saw a large boomerang shaped, orange colored, glowing object moving across the sky almost above where I was. It moved at a quick pace, and made no noise at all. I saw the orange glow reflect off of the clouds as it glided across the sky.

There was no time to get anyone else to see it before it disappeared over the trees out of view. I was astonished, I had never seen anything like that before or since.

It’s been 34 years since then, and I haven’t seen anything else unusual, but I am always looking around the night sky even today. I was reading some other reports and found about six or seven stories of people seeing things around Calera, more recently.

Calera must be in a path that lends itself to sightings.

Calera, Alabama, USA; September 12, 2010

Name: Anonymous

Date of Sighting: September 12, 2010

Location of Sighting: Calera, Alabama, United States

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Round

Color(s) of UFO(s): white then changing with white with red ring in the middle

Number of UFO(s): 1 then splitting into 2

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Approximately 10 miles

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Standing still for about 30 minutes and disappeared

Further Description of Sighting: My husband had first noticed this bright object that at first we thought was a really bright star, but too close to be a star, a few days earlier. We looked at it with just our eyes and stayed over the tree tops for 30 to 40 minutes then just disappeared.

Tonight, September 12, 2010 it appeared again at the exact same location between 7:45pm and 8:20pm. This time I took my camcorder outside to view in on a closer look. As I zoomed in, it was weird. It at first appeared just a very white bright light, then it changed into a white circle with red in the center.

As we watched through the camera, it changed shape. It was almost as if it divided itself with a red ring around the center. With the lens zoomed in on it, we were able to see that it was moving more so than we could see with our naked eyes. Then for about three seconds the object divided itself into two separate objects.

Then went together as one again. And still the strangeness of the thing changing over and over again to look like a stretching of some sort with a red band in the center. The best thing that comes to mind when it took this shape was like a baby rattle with two balls on the end and a smaller handle in the middle.

My husband had to leave to run to Alabaster, Alabama, which is approximately ten miles away. He said he could see it on his way out of the treed area we live in. He watched it as he drove to Alabaster and it was still in the distance to the South of him back in this direction. Then, he said he stood in the parking lot watching it and it just disappeared, not moving, just vanished.

I have this documented on video and my whole family stood and watched in amazement. I would like to know if any other people in the vacinity of adjacent towns of Montevallo, Alabaster and here in Calera saw this object.

I was able to focus on it and follow it as it was able to speed off.
