A Florida witness at Palm Springs reported watching an orange, oval-shaped object rising to the south that made an abrupt turn east, according to testimony in Case 82838 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was at home sitting in a parked car about 11:45 p.m. on March 14, 2017.
“I saw an orange, oval-shaped, glowing object through the trees to my northeast maybe at a 1,000-foot altitude and climbing, “the witness stated. “I figured this was probably a plane taking off from the West Palm Beach airport, but thought it was odd that the craft was orange.”
The witness watched the object as it moved away.
“It flew past my house heading south, just underneath the roofline, temporarily out of sight. I got out of my car to see it reappear over the rooftop. Just as I saw it pass over the roofline of my house, as I'm now facing east, it took a sharp turn east and kept ascending and heading away from me.”
The witness could not make out a definite shape of the object, but watched it ascending to the east.
“I assumed I was now looking at the back of the craft, which looked like a big jet engine glowing orange. I could barely make out the engine outline for a split second. The entire object was glowing orange the whole time, flickering slightly as it moved east away from me. I guess the object may have been wider in back and tapered slightly in front. I can't say for sure if it had wings. The object disappeared through clouds and was still glowing orange as I lost sight of it. It looked a little more flat and wide as it disappeared through the clouds.”
The witness noted that it was a mostly clear night.
