An Iowa witness at Exira reported watching a low-flying triangle-shaped object that began following him, according to testimony in Case 85523.
The witness was on his way to work at 4:30 a.m. on July 31, 2017.
“I was heading west out of Exira, on F58,” the witness stated. “Roughly four miles west I saw some bright lights coming from the southwest. I pulled over because at first, I thought it was an airplane but there is no airport for 10 miles. It was so low to the ground I thought it was going to land. There were no blue or red blinking lights. It did have a big white orb on the bottom that did blink.”
The object flew over the witness and continued on a northeast path.
“I kept going down the highway for another mile and realized it was now following me. I pulled over, but it would not come closer and just hovered about a quarter-mile away. I proceeded to drive to work five miles north of Kimballton, Iowa. It didn't matter what direction I drove. I could tell it was following me. Once I got to work, it was now a long ways away and it just hovered the entire time. I tried taking a couple of pictures but two did not turn out. Only one did and that was from a far distance and it only looks like a very bright star or planet.”
Iowa MUFON State Director Gregory Andersen closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
