A Massachusetts witness at Northampton reported watching a “black wing” about 50 to 100 feet across hovering silently alongside a major highway, according to testimony in Case 89280 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The incident occurred at 5:20 p.m. on January 2, 2018, as the witness was driving home from work heading south on I-91.
“At first, I thought a new construction crane had been set up to the side of the highway because of two bright, stationary lights over top of the trees,” the witness stated. “As I got closer to the object, I realized it was a flat craft just hovering in the dark sky. It was darker than the sky, so I could see its outline.”
The witness described the object.
“It was a black wing maybe 50 to 100 feet across. It had two bright lights possibly on the underside and had lights along the front edge of each wing, maybe five on each side. They looked like windows. I could kind of make out an interior space. It wasn’t until I drove under it that I clearly saw the wing shape. I tried to slow down as much as possible. It was rush hour and a lot of traffic, but I then realized this was something I've never seen before and it was just floating, silently.”
The object was hovering at or under 500 feet and appeared to be 101 to 500 feet away. Massachusetts State Director Eric Hartwig closed this case as an Unknown UAV.
