Idaho UFO makes two 'crash-like' maneuvers; hovers low over fieldJuly 3, 2009
There may be multiple witnesses to this June 30 UFO sighting, as reported from an Idaho witness who was driving and saw what he first thought was an airplane about to crash, according to witness testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.
"It was going so fast towards the ground and then stopped abruptly," the witness wrote.
The object then hovered momentarily, and took off into the sky again.
Then it moved at a high rate of speed toward the ground again as though it was going to crash, but stopped again.
The witness continued driving toward the object until the object was very close. The witness says the object on close inspection had a series of blue and white lights and was hovering 3 to 4 feet over a field, before flying right by the witness.
The witness also observed other vehicles had pulled over behind his vehicle and were watching the object as well.
Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Idaho MUFON Director Augustine Fawkes investigates and reports back on this case, I will update this page.
The following report is unedited. You can read my selected cases by type of UFO report at the UFO Traffic Report index page.
ID, June 30, 2009 - It was flying really fast, with really bright lights.
i was driving home from a friends house at about 11 pm on june 30th 09. i thought i was seeing an airplane about to crash into the ground 2 mins from me.
i was so scared because i thought it would blow up right there in front of me. it was going so fast twards the ground and then stopped abruptly.
it hovered for a second and took off really fast twards the left at a 45 degree angle.it was so strange so i started to pay attention.
then it looked like it was about to crash a second time, but didnt once again. about 1 min later i was driving right next to the thing. the lights were really really bright. big white lights and smaller blue ones in a pattern. [white, blue, white, blue and so on]. not like any aircraft i have seen.
it was hovering 3-4 feet over a field. then it took off past me right as i was driving by. there were a few people pulled over behind me so im sure they were watching it too.
