Object rotating silently over Aldie Airport, Virginia, USA 8-16-2020, UFO Sighting News.


Date of sighting: 8-16-2020
Location of sighting: Aldie, Virginia, USA

This triangle craft was seen over Virginia six months ago, but reported today. The eyewitness says he has a drone, but dones don't work because the airport is using an anti drone system to stop drones from flying in the area, I'm guessing it signal jamming. I personally have never heard of that, but sound smart. So...that rules out drones. But when I took a screenshot and added light, I noticed a glimmering center to it. That may be the cockpit for an alien pilot. Not the typical TR3B craft the USAF has, but something unique. This is 100% proof aliens exist.

Eyewitness states: I live near Dulles airport within the surface area and no drones are functional (i have one and it will not work outside). I was driving home and saw this object hoving and sort of drifting in a westerly direction below the clouds. It was completely silent. It slowly rotated with what seemed like a purpose. The object was black, and had 3 control surfaces protruding from the center so it looks like a 3 pronged aircraft of some sort...

Eyewitness states:
On Saturday March 26, 2016- I was exiting the Huntington Metro garage on the Huntington Ave side (lower Huntington Metro) when coming down the ramp across from Fenwick Dr. when I glanced up and saw a strange silver/grey object hovering off in the distance seemingly over the area of the highway/Eisenhower ave/ Duke st. I could not tell its exact size but it was large and stationary ( it did not lower or raised as I watched it). I noticed that the sky was partly cloudy but the top of the object was reflecting sunlight or radiated its own light. As I was watching the item, a couple came up to me and said that they had first spotted the object form the metro train as they came into Eisenhower station. The wife stated that her husband did not see any type of tether and ask me did I see one. I said I did not as we watched it hover, then spin on its axis and I saw the attachment just under its "nose". It was slightly curve and reddish in color. I took out my cell phone and snap off a couple of pictures. I then quickly cross Huntington ave and made my way towards Huntington Park, which took me know more than 5 minutes. I lost sight of the object so I crossed the length of the park still not spotting it. I made my way to the banks of Camron Run/ Huntington Creek, looked and saw nothing. I stood there for about 10 minutes before I left and went on my way. The pictures are nice and clear but the object to far away for the phone to get a better picture. Blow-up you can see the attachment better.


Glowing UFO Over Westin Hotel, Virginia On April 18, 2015, UFO Sighting News.

Date of sighting: April 18, 2015
Location of sighting: Westin Building, Virginia Beach, USA

The building is actually the Westin Hotel in Virgina and is 38 floors high. This UFO is like many of the glowing UFOs seen around the world. They have a white glow, round. For example, the Dome of Rock UFO back in 2011. Great catch and nice someone stopped to record it for us. SCW

Eyewitness states:
This UFO was seen around 12am on April 18th 2015, above the Westin building in Va Beach. Did anyone else see this object? Is this a UFO? Or maybe a drone? Any ideas on what this could be?


Mail In Report: UFO Over Fairfax, Virginia On June 23, 2013.

Date of sighting: June 23, 2013
Location of sighting: Fairfax, Virginia, USA
Time: 8:22 PM ET

This is a mail in report to UFO Sightings Daily that came in today. Both the photos are very interesting and this object looks almost cube-like in shape. UFOs often have smaller objects that rotate in an orbit around the craft and this seems to be one of them. SCW

Eyewitness states:
The object looked like it had two distinct parts. Two structures on top of a larger structure. The top-structures either had lights on the top of them, or had reflective surfaces reflecting the light of the sun. The larger part (under the two lighted parts) had about 4 - 5 square shared sections. On the sides of the larger part were two objects that looked like antennas sticking out.  Two very small black shapes also moved behind it, equidistant from the larger shape/craft on either side of it.  The object took about 5-10 minutes to move from in our view of the sky out of it. It rotated slowly and systematically. Two pictures (below) are attached. 


How UFO Researchers Know UFOs Create Clouds To Hide Within, Sept 1957 US Army Ft. Belvoir, Virginia Sighting.

Date of sighting: September 1957
Location of sighting: Fort Belvoir, Virginia, USA
Eyewitness: Army Private Stone

Flying Saucers UFO Reports Magazine states: 

UFOs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but probably the most rare of all is that ring-shaped UFO. It's not quite an anomaly since it has been reported on several occasions, but it certainly is a rarity. To my knowledge, it has only been photographed on one occasion and on that one occasion, an alert army private took a series of six photographs which reveal a second rarity  reported in connection with UFOs.

On many occasions UFOs are reported to become gradually engulfed in a vapor cloud. The fully developed cloud looks like any other cloud in the sky and affords the UFO with a very convenient hiding place. The series of photographs made by the army private, not only show the rare ring object, but also shows it gradually becoming engulfed in the vapor cloud.

This series of photographs, which are probably the most amazing and puzzling pictures ever taken of a UFO, have never been published any place. They are presented to the readers of this magazine as a UFO photo exclusive.

The army private who took the set of photographs has asked that I not use his real name in this story since the photos were taken on an army base and since he still is in the Air Force reserves. However, his true identity is known to many others, as will be seen in the story which follows. For convenience we will call him private Jim Stone.

In September, 1957, Private Stone was stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. He was assigned to the Post Engineers. It was about 9 AM while he was working inside buildings in the Post Engineer section, when someone yelled to him and others to come outside to see the odd thing coming over head towards their area.

Stone and five or six others ran out and spotted an odd, black ring, moving slowly, high above the tree tops but below the broken cloud cover. The ring seems solid enough, not a smoke ring and Private Stone guessed the size of the ring to be about 60 feet in diameter, with the ring width about five or 6 feet. (This was a guess, possibly incorrect.) 

Private Stone remembered his Kodak Brownie camera which was in his car. He ran over to the car, which was parked nearby, grabbed the camera and took six pictures in fairly rapid sequence. After the second picture was taken, the strange ring started to develop a mist around itself. The mist thickened rapidly until it was more like a small cloud and within 30 to 60 seconds the Black ring was completely enveloped within a small compact cloud of its own.

The complete sequence was recorded by Private Stone on his 127 brownie, but later he began to have some misgivings. Could this be some secret Army device that he should not have been photographing?

During their coffee break, the soldiers discussed the strange ring and Private Stone learned that some of the others also have photographed the object. They decided that it probably was some type of experiment and they decided against making any mention of the pictures they had taken. Private stone wanted to stay clear of trouble. He even waited until he returned home before having the pictures developed.

He was assigned to the Post Engineers for only a short time and had little opportunity to get acquainted with the other soldiers. Now 10 years later, he has no idea who the other soldiers are or where they may be reached. It is hoped that if any of the other soldiers happened to read this story, they will get in touch with the author. Their names will be kept anonymous if they so desire.

Over the years, Private Stone occasionally showed the pictures to friends, most of whom evidentially reacted as if it were some joke. In March, 1966 one of his friends made the suggestion that perhaps the pictures should be sent to the NICAP, to see what they thought of them. And so, the NICAP received the pictures from Private Stones friend with his notation:  Due to the increased in UFO sightings, we felt these photos could be of interest. If any other information is needed, please contact Mr. X. Mr. Stone's real name and address was given. NICAP Forwarded the letter and photographs to me for photographic analysis. At the time, I was the NICAP Photographic advisor; I have since resigned. 

The pictures looked extremely good to me. Those with the ring being enveloped in a cloud would have been difficult for a professional photographer to fake, let alone an amateur with a Brownie camera. I immediately wrote to Private Stone who of course by then was Mr. Stone.

A month later I received my first letter from Mr. Stone. He answered my questions and apologized for the delay, explaining that the time was spent in searching throughout the house for the negatives. Unfortunately, he was unable to find them. He explained that since taking the pictures in 1957 he had moved seven times. The negatives were misplaced, although he feels that they are still around...someplace. If he locates them, he will gladly make them available to us.

I made a set of negatives from Mr. Stone's prints, and I sent a copy prints to Dr. James E McDonald and a Prof. Charles A. Maney, for their opinions. Dr. McDonald is an authority on atmospheric physics Professor Maney a mathematician and physicist now deceased.

Dr. McDonald Showed extreme interest in the pictures, and on September 9, 1966 he phoned Mr. Stone to get more details and further impressions on the credibility of the photos. In his report to the NICAP, Dr. McDonald stated that Stone, "sounded entirely straightforward about the whole thing." He also added that there was "no evident reason to doubt his story nor to doubt the authenticity of those peculiar  photos." 

Prof. Maney termed the photographs, "a most intriguing set of photos." He also said, "As Regards to the rings appearance, I refer to an old expression, 'there is more to it than meets the eye.' There are laws of physics yet to be discovered, and in this case, I believe that the human eye and the camera saw only a part of the aerial object."

I asked Prof. Maney if he could think of any circumstances under which such have vapor cloud might form, and if it would be possible to duplicate such a cloud under controlled conditions. To this he answered, "I am inclined to think that ionization of the air in the vicinity of the aerial object produced the vapor which was seen to form around and inside the ring." He then related to some experiments conducted by physicist Noel Scott in 1952 at of all places Fort Belvoir, Va. Scott, by introducing molecules of ionized air into the partial vacuum of a 3 foot Bell jar, created miniature masses of illuminated air.

At the time, Scott told the Air Force investigators, he had no idea whether the conditions of his experiment were likely to exist in the atmosphere. However, Dr. George Ray Wait, internationally known physicist of Carnegie Institute said, "I know of no conditions in the earth's atmosphere, high or low, that would duplicate those needed to make the laboratory models at Fort Belvoir."

Prof. Maney said he agreed with Dr. Wait's statement, but added, "the  Ring of Mr. Stone's pictures may have introduced a high degree of ionization on the air about it, a condition not natural to the unaffected air itself."

It is surprising that NICAP, having known of these photos and of the favorable scientific evaluations of them has seen fit to keep all news of their existence out of the bimonthly publication. Since NICAP professes to "investigate and make known to the public, all reports of UFOs," it is inconceivable that such a rare series of photographs was not deemed worthy of mention in their publication.

Double rings

Prof. Maney was kind enough to relate to me the case of a double ring which was observed March 31, 1952 in Greenfield, Massachusetts by Charles T. Early. 

Mr. Early was burning leaves in his backyard on Sunday afternoon. The sky was clear and there was no wind. Suddenly he heard a swishing noise, as if a windstorm were coming up. He looked up quickly to see if the wind on his bonfire would endanger two large farms that were near.

What he saw in the sky were two large rings, parallel to each other with one about 4 feet above the other. He estimated their diameter to be about 30 feet. They were bright, like polished chrome. The tubes (if they were that) were estimated to be about 4 inches in thickness.

As the pair of rings whirled through the air, they did not change their relative positions. They came zooming down towards Mr. Early with such speed that he was certain they would hit the ground. However, just before reaching the ground they rose up again, into the sky, still spinning in a clockwise direction.

The planes of the rings at first were horizontal and then they turned on and to become vertical, (as wheels are arranged on a vehicle). The rings hovered over Mr. early for a minute, and move south about 50 feet where they resumed the horizontal position. As they began to pick up speed, there was a little irregularity of movement. When the speed became roughly that of a jet plane, the motion was smooth.

Mr. Early saw the double ring head for a factory chimney. Then it suddenly shot up in the air and moved toward a large mountain about 6 miles away, traveling at the rate of a jet or 500 mph. It then banked, turned and headed towards Mr. Early. When it was within one quarter of a mile from him, it suddenly shot upward at a speed estimated at about 1500 mph. It went so fast that it was lost from site in a second.

He noted that when the object hovered over him, it made a humming noise which reminded him of the sound sometimes heard while standing under a telephone wire in the country.

Another case of a double ring was pointed out by Gordon Creighton of the Flying Saucer Review, the well-known British UFO magazine. This sighting was made by Mrs. Millicent Harris and is detailed in the Review's Nov./Dec. edition. The rings were golden colored and were partially hidden by its own cloud. (See sketch)

The cover of the Jan./Feb. 1964 addition of the Flying Saucer Review contains a sketch of a ring object which had a thick spindle through the center. (See sketch taken from the F.S.R.). This object was seen on September 15, 1963 at 4:45 PM by James Poulton and Mr. P. R. Shergold. They were near Barton-on-Sea, Hampshire when James Poulton noticed the strange object moving along at a moderate speed and at a very high altitude. He described it as being very bright and silvery all over, except for the black spots at either end of the center spindle. The object was inclined at 40° towards the direction of flight. An interesting case of a cloud UFO is related by Jacques and Janine Vallee in their book, Challenge To Science, (Henry Regnery Co. 1966). On April 11, 1964 (just 13 days before the famous Socorro, New Mexico landing), a New York State physiotherapist and his family were having a picnic supper. The time was about 6:30 PM. There were four witnesses, and the sighting lasted 45 minutes. It involved a dark, oblong object, which assumed a vertical position and was seen through binoculars as "almost boiling out," with wisps of smoke actually streaming out of the main body of the cloud. That's one point, this object emitted a flash of light and shot forward at a very high velocity, then retracted its path in the same manner. (Certainly not the behavior of a normal cloud.) It finally seemed to divide into several smaller objects. 

This object and its behavior, although unusual, is typical of the class of arial phenomenon first recognized by Aime Michel in a study of the French cases of 1954. For lack of a better term, Michel called this phenomenon "cigar cloud. It has been observed in Great Britain, South America, the USA, Australia, Poland, and the Soviet Union. 

As Prof. Charles Maney put it, "There are laws of physics yet to be discovered, and in this case (the ring UFO) I believe that the human eye and the camera saw only a part of the aerial object." The truth or fallacy of that statement may be a long time away in the knowing, but our ignorance will be prolonged as long as our government "pooh-poohs" UFO reports, and creates an atmosphere which discourages scientists from seriously considering these reports. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara added to this atmosphere of squelching scientific inquiry in March 1966, when he told congressmen that he could "Categorically deny" the possibility that UFOs had extraterrestrial implications. The defense chief said all UFO sightings have been investigated by the military and there was no evidence to support the theory that they might be controlled vehicles from outer space or anywhere else.

McNamara's statement is contradicted by one who should know,  Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the Air Force's own scientific consultants on UFO cases, has stated that the Air Force has never conducted a scientific investigation of UFOs. There was was a military investigation to determine if any threat existed to national security. This statement was made before the current scientific study now underway at Colorado University. Indeed, the Colorado University study would not even have been contracted for if McNamara's Statement had been true. 

Dr. Hynek told a NASA scientific seminar that UFOs have been picked up on NORAD and SAC radars... But we're scoffed at by the military. He added that 100 or so reliable reports cannot be ruled out without further evidence, and he said that on several occasions IGY optical tracking networks pictured unexplained UFOs.

Gratefully, not all scientists are swayed by these unscientific statements, even if they do come from the Secretary of Defense. Let's hope more and more of these thinking scientist join their associates in UFO research, to bring nearer the day when we may know for sure the "whys and wherefores" of UFOs.

UFO Fleet During Sunset Over Richmond, Virginia On Jan 20, 2012 VIDEO.

Date of sighting: January 20, 2012
Location of sighting: Richmond, Virginia, USA

This is an amazing daytime catch of a mass of glowing orbs over Richmond. Watch carefully and you will notice them fade in and out, which is their cloak being triggered by the position of the sun. This video was taken right before sunset, and as I have said many times on this site, at sunset the suns rays hit the cloaked UFO from such an angle that the cloak has to bend the light more than 180 degrees…now 270 degrees which the cloak cannot take. Thus the UFOs are revealed for a few minutes during sunset. That is the best time to hunt for them. SCW

A similar UFO sighting took place in Taiwan in 2004 during sunset. 


UFO sighting during thunderstorm of several orbs flying around Chesapeake, Virginia, June 12 video.

UFO sighting during thunderstorm of several orbs flying around Chesapeake, Virginia, June 12 video.

Date of sighting: June 12, 2011
Location of sighting: Chesapeake, Virginia, USA

This is an usual video to say the least. I myself have been an eyewitness to orbs the size of buses during broad daylight with hundreds of others, yet this one is flying around during a thunderstorm.

Watch carefully and you will see not just one but two or three orbs moving about the sky. To better see them fast forward to 4 minutes into the video and that is where the action begins. Please tell us your thoughts on this and have you ever seen something similar to it?
