Three UFO sightings reported in Maine on same night
Three separate UFO sightings were reported over the skies of Maine on the night of June 4, 2013, with two occurring at the same time about 20 miles apart and the third about two hours later and 60 miles away from the initial two sightings.
One witness took a video of the object.
All three reports submitted to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) generally described a single, bright object, with each report offering varying details. It is possible that the sightings are related to the same object, even though the UFO may have appeared slightly different to each group of witnesses.
The object was first spotted by two groups of witnesses 20 miles apart at 9:30 PM.
Two unnamed witnesses in West Paris, ME, were walking outside when they spotted, " a yellow glowing light with red flames shooting from it" that appeared to brighten and dim. The object flew in a straight line and ascended until the witnesses could no longer see it.
Both witnesses reported seeing conventional aircraft afterwards and then, "One bright white light with no sound."
Both objects excited the witnesses, according to their report.
At about there same time and a little more than 20 miles to the east, in Chesterville, a family watched a "very bright" light with "three grey light beams going in multiple directions" and flying at a high altitude.
The witness said that "This thing had one grey light beam going directly under it and another two at angles of north and south just angled off the main beam directly under it."
The family unsuccessfully tried to photograph the strange object during their approximate 10 minute encounter.
A little more than two hours later at midnight, two brothers in Bangor witnessed "a large, bright white light" fly slowly across the their horizon.
The first witness was preparing to photograph the stars when they noticed the UFO, which appeared lower and bigger than the surrounding stars.
The witness ran inside their home and asked their partner to come out and see the strange object. Together they observed a, "Single, bright oval object steadily cross the sky with a slight wobble, no sound, just above the trees, street and river at approximately 500-plus feet in altitude."
They shot a video of the UFO as they watched it for about a minute before it flew out of their view.
Original (unedited) witness reports:
West Paris, ME, 9:30 PM: Walked outside and just above the tree lines above my steps was a yellow glowing light with red flames shooting from it, at times really bright then Not so bright. It went in a straight line with no sound and just keep going straight And what seemed like up up up till it was so tiny I couldnt see it anymore.
There was one other person outside with me that saw the same thing, then we saw more then normal planes in the sky and also saw one bright white light with no sound as well. I was really excited And I do believe it was a ufo of some sort Both the yellow ball with flames and the bright white light. I wished I had my camera on me so I could have taped it.
Chesterville, ME, 9:30PM: I am not sure what I saw and I know I have bad eyes but my brother, Father and mother all saw it and ran out side to see this thing fly over the house. This thing was so bright we thought maybe it was the space station but there was no blinking lights and the space station was not located over my property at this time.
The light was very bright and looked like a star how ever it looked like it was in the upper atmosphere and had three grey light beams going in multiple directions. This thing had one grey light beam going directly under it and another two at angles of north and south just angled off the main beam directly under it.
My brother was yelling come look come look and so I came outside and could not figure out what the heck I was looking at and we noticed planes going by in the same direction a lot lower then the thing we was observing. My brother had it on his phone trying to determine what it was but the phone came back with nothing and the object was moving very slow.
I would not be surprised if others in the area saw the same thing we was looking at for a good 5-10 minutes. I wish my brother took a picture but I can explain it as clear as day because it just happened and started at 9:30 PM eastern and ended at 9:40 PM eastern after it went over the tree line and I could not see it any more.
This is the first time I have ever seen any thing like it how ever my dad has seen this object before 20 or so years ago or at least an object like it that he cant explain. I figured it is best to document the event as best I can while it is still fresh in my mind.
I have autism spectrum and I know what I saw and some things will stick for a life time and this will most likely be one of them unless said object can be explained.
Bangor, ME, Midnight: a large, bright white light" that slowly crossed the sky at about 500 feet about midnight on June 4, 2013, "When I looked up I saw a bright, white light that was moving and appeared to be larger and lower than other stars," the witness stated. "I ran inside and asked my partner to come and look at the object as witness. We watched the single, bright oval object steadily cross the sky with a slight wobble, no sound, just above the trees, street and river at approximately 500-plus feet in altitude. We viewed the object for about a minute until we lost sight of it behind the trees. I did manage to capture it on video
