Story by Roger Marsh
An Illinois parent at Clinton reported that her two sons and a friend watched a rotating, black disc with blue and red lights, according to testimony in Case 81936 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The event occurred beginning at 10:03 p.m. on January 5, 2017.
"A 14-year-old friend of my sons was in my son's room with two of my sons - one is 14 the other is 9. The 9-year-old was laying on the bed the 14-year-old friend was sitting on the corner of the bed. The 9-year-old saw something weird in the window, so he got up and said, 'What is that?' His friend, who was sitting up far from the window saw it too."
The boys told the mom what they saw.
"They observed a slowly rotating, black, disk-shaped UFO with big bright blue lights on the side of it and red lights on the top of it in a dome which they could see because the red lights were reflecting on it."
The object was seen behind their home and near their neighbor's house.
"When my son, who is 14, got up to the window to see it, it moved really quick like it was hiding. Zipped on the other side of their house. The front. I had both kids draw what they saw in separate rooms. Will show pictures of drawings. The 14-year-old was petrified. Crying when I took him home. I don't know what is going on, but I'm sick of it. These boys are scared. Not for pretend. For real."
