Location of Sighting: Smethport, Pennsylvania
Date of Sighting: September 20, 2016
Time of Sighting: 9:45 PM EDT
Description: A man and his wife were outside and saw a bright object flickering red and blue colors hover, then descend below the tree line and vanish. The object first appeared to be a star, but was brighter and of different color. The craft appeared to be hovering at an apparent distance of 3 feet above the tree line. The object was visible for about 5 minutes. The witness is a commercial pilot with over 1,600 hours of flying. He said that the lights were not anti-collision aircraft lights. He thought that the object could possibly be a drone, but he didn’t think so. He seemed convinced that the object was not a “regular aircraft.” He thought possibly that the craft could be a secret military aircraft. The DUKE Military Operations Area (MOA) is nearby to the east of his location. He said that sometimes he sees tankers refueling craft during military exercises in the MOA. The witness was in the Navy for 24 years and was a P3 sensor operator.

These lights that appear to be a ball of red, blue, and white flickering light have been appearing around our property for about a year now, and just seem to be increasing in number and proximity. Other strange light anomalies are also occurring.
I saw these last night and they are out again tonight. Look outside and see if they are there too.
I see them tonight at a75 degree angle above Caro, Michigan. It’s late and the sky is clear tonight.
