A Montana witness at Dillon reported watching a red and silver object with “patterned lights” slow moving above the tree tops, according to testimony in Case 88655 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving home at 8 p.m. on December 9, 2017.
“Watching for deer and noticed right in front of us in the sky right above the tree line were these red and white, silver, round, small lights in a row all going in a pattern around the edge and along the top and bottom all going around in a pattern,” the witness stated. “It was turning slowly at a tilt, bigger than a house, very low to the ground, turning slowly, going in an east direction. I drove fast down the lane with me and my boyfriend watching it.”
At home, the witness went inside to ask her mother to come out and look.
“She ran out with me and we watched it. No noise at all. The red and silver lights were all going in a perfect, tilted circle, top and bottom, but the object was translucent, could just see the lights circling top and bottom on this huge, slow-turning, no-sound thing. We watched it for 10 to 15 minutes, slowly changing its directed to the northeast. We watched until it was so far away in the dark we couldn't see it anymore. We never saw it take of – just slowly moving away. Mom was kind of scared because it was so close, so big, slowly moving away over our field and above the neighborhood in the dark at 8 p.m. I went inside the house never knowing if it went back up because it moved too far away to see at night above the tree line. I tried to take a picture of it on my phone or record it, but I couldn't capture it on my cell phone.”
MUFON CAG Investigators Marie Cisneros and John Gagnon closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
