Alabama UFO reports totaled 63 cases received by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in 2017 with three important reports included in the recently released annual UFO Cases of Interest book.
Of those 63 reports, 38 cases occurred during 2017 and six of those cases were closed by Alabama Field Investigators as either an Unknown Aerial Vehicle or an Unknown Other. From that list, three reports were included in the book detailing a cylinder being chased by the military, a circular object over an army base and a triangle-shaped object flying under 500 feet.
An Alabama witness at Remlap reported watching a dark, cylinder-shaped object, being followed by a jet plane, according to testimony in Case 81858.
The witness and a daughter were driving along Route 79 north at 6:25 p.m. on February 1, 2017.
“All of a sudden, we saw two lights that were strobing across the sky, from east to west, right above the trees with a jet plane directly behind it in pursuit. It was so low that we were able to see the doors of the landing gear on the jet.”
These first few seconds of the sighting scared the daughter.
“She looked at me and said, ‘Please tell me we just didn't just see what I thought we just did!’ All I could do was confirm with her what we had both seen. I was at my mother's house within two minutes and called my husband immediately because my daughter and I have always been sceptics, but my husband had always been a believer.”
The woman’s husband told her and their daughter to draw what they saw immediately.
“So, we sat in the car and we drew it out. We went into my mother's house and told her what we saw, and my mother said she heard a roaring, rumble noise that vibrated the house. Like an engine was accelerated to the max. We are still in shock, not really believing what we saw. My husband told me about this website and wanted me to report this.”
Alabama MUFON Field Investigator Roger Moore investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
