Two Illinois siblings who share a 2011 UFOexperience were excited July 15, 2012, when a “dark gray, disc or saucer-shaped object” with a bright, glowing orange light appeared just above the tree line near their Chillicothe home, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The two were in their living room talking when the object was first noticed.
“The object appeared rather close and maybe the size of a dime,” the brother stated. “I pointed it out and asked my sister if she saw it. She saw it too, and I hurriedly ran outside while directing her to get her camera.”
As the witness stepped outside, the object was moving slowly to the northeast and gaining altitude.
“At first I thought it was a Chinese paper lantern. I realized this was not the case as it was moving side-to-side without gaining altitude, and would stop moving side-to-side while it was ascending. It was moving far too fast to be a paper lantern.”
The witness also noticed a disc shape to the object.
