MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) has received a report alleging that a UFO was flying over the Columbus/Westerville area of Ohio on the evening of January 18th, 2015.
According to the woman who filed the report with MUFON, at approximately 7:15 pm, she received a text from her 11-year-old son, who lives with his father in Westerville, Ohio. The boy claimed that he could see a “meteor” above his father’s house. Curious, the woman, who lives in Columbus “about 20 minutes” from Westerville, went outside to see if she could see anything herself.
Sure enough, the woman reporting being able to see what she described as “a very bright, rapidly blinking light hovering in the SE sky.” She said the object appeared to be pulsating “in what looked like red, green, and white lights.”
When it came to movement, the woman was able to discern that the object was moving in a Northeasterly direction, towards her home, although it was moving very slowly. In fact, the woman remarked that after looking at the object for close to 45 minutes, it had still yet to cross over house. At approximately 8:00 pm, “a heavy cloud bank rolled in” and the woman lost sight of the object. She did manage to take several photos with her cell phone, though:
The report ends with the woman stating that “after checking out the pictures and zooming in”, she realized “this was most likely a UFO.”
If you have seen something similar, you are asked to notify MUFON.
Concerning the photos the woman submitted, with all due respect, the first image has to be the smallest photo I have ever seen attached to one of these reports. What you’re looking at above is the full size image! I tried running it through software to bring the image out some more, but even a simple “zoom” on this pic turns it to pixellated mush. So sorry, nothing much to see here.
When it comes to the second image, while it’s much larger, it’s still hard to see anything. I assume the UFO is the small green object towards the left of the frame (above), but it’s still too far out there to really see anything:
So how about it, Columbus area: see anything weird in the sky last night? if you did, I want to know about it! Of course, let MUFON know, too, but don’t forget about your ol’ strange and spooky pal here!
