One standard UFO report detail is the object’s size. Despite their shape – ranging from classic discs and triangles to spheres and balls of light – most UFOs tend to be in the 10 to 30-foot length range. But over time you see witnesses logging in cases where they describe very gigantic objects and often compare size to a football field.
From 241 reports listed in UFO Cases of Interest: 2018 Edition, there are two cases where the witness used the “football field” term in their object description. Both objects were under 500 feet as the witness watched.
A Maryland witness at Boonsboro reported watching a low flying, blimp-shaped object, according to testimony in Case 86700.
The witness had just dropped off his son's girlfriend and was leaving her house at 8:35 p.m. on September 13, 2017.
“I got to the stop sign and was looking left,” the witness stated. “No cars. Looked right. No cars. I looked back to the left and noticed a dark object floating at my 11 o’clock position. I sat at the stop sign a minute, kind of dazed and wondering what the heck was I looking at. The object was dark, and I could only make out the outline of its shape when I saw the red lights on either side (left and right) blink. It looked like a football field size and was really low to the ground.”
The witness also described the object’s lighting configuration.
“I also noticed a white light blinking on the top and bottom of what I was seeing. I was thinking that whatever it was would surely crash so I turned onto the route and continued to watch it. I turned off the radio in the car and rolled down the windows, I couldn't hear any engines. Nothing. I was on a ‘country’ road, so there were no other cars at the time to interfere sound or sight wise.”
The witness pulled over and watched the object slowly float towards the southwest.
