UFO encounters may be frightening as witnesses observe never-before-seen objects moving in incredible ways. But some sightings are further stressed when the object morphs into different shapes.
Four shape-shifting UFO sightings were listed in the recently-released book, UFO Cases of Interest: 2018 Edition, by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
A New Mexico witness at Albuquerque reported watching a boomerang-shaped object just 500 feet away that hovered and seemed to change shape while moving, according to testimony in Case 82456.
The witness was outside walking north on a lunch break at 12:30 p.m. on March 2, 2017.
“A light gray shape caught my eye,” the witness stated. “The object was approximately 500 feet away, and about 50 feet in the air over a building. At first, I thought it was a flock of birds, and I said, ‘That's interesting. What kind of birds would those be?’ It seemed to be moving east in a slow flutter. Then it disappeared, like it folded back into the sky.”
The witness thought that was strange.
“It then reappeared in a fat boomerang shape. It seemed to be made up of multiple light gray, possibly reflective objects, but working together, like a school of fish, or sequins on a purse or dress. It did seem to have a common background that was dark gray or black. It was still fluttering, but it paused and hovered and moved backward, just slightly.”
At this point, a bare tree blocked the view, but the witness kept walking to see the object again.
“When I saw the shape again, it had changed. And it seemed to be a soft, billowy, upside down parachute shape, or the bottom of a puffy cloud or a puff of factory smoke. I almost convinced myself it was a deflated weather balloon, but there was no top to the shape, only a distinct bottom. The color of this object seemed to blend with the sky. I could only decipher a dark gray sitting in the bottom of the cloud/parachute.”
Then the object changed again.
“Now it became almost transparent, as if the sun were reflecting on an invisible craft. Now there really is no overall shape that I can make out. I saw a few smaller, very rigid shapes, like flat prisms or solar panels, and they seemed to fold backwards into the object and then the whole object faded away.”
The witness said these events occurred in about 20 - 25 seconds.
