Sighting Reports 2008

Several See Dark Gray Object With "Bouncing or Skipping" Motion

Date of Sighting: June, 2008 (Exact Date Unknown)
Time of Sighting: 8 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Omaha, Nebraska

Description: I was on my balcony on a clear June night around dusk, but there was still plenty of light in the sky. I walked out on my third story apartment balcony to have a cigarette, and my eyes were immediately drawn to the horizon to the east where I saw a huge dark grey object, like a cigar laying horizontally, and it seemed to slowly float. It was more like a bouncing or skipping, but it almost seemed to move in slow motion. I have never seen anything move like that in my life.

I yelled for my girlfriend and my 7 year old son to come outside and look to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing. They were both stunned and had no idea what it could have been.

We were watching it float from north to south together for about 1 minute, and then it disappeared. It literally just disappeared. There were no lights turned on, nothing. It was there plain as day then it was gone.

I called Eppley Airfield & the local police station to ask them if anyone had reported seeing anything strange in the sky because I had, and the operator chuckled and told me no.

What I saw was like nothing I have ever seen. It looked and moved nothing like an airplane, hot air balloon, or blimp, or cloud, or anything else that belongs in the sky. This object was massive, dark grey in color, and VERY out of place in the sky.

Note: The witness has presented a good argument that what he and others saw defied explanation. The only drawback to this report is that it occurred over a year ago and the exact date is unknown. Therefore no comparison can be made to other possible sightings in the area.
