A Pennsylvania witness at Cheltenham, Montgomery County, PA, reported encountering a hovering orb that appeared to render both the witness and a dog motionless, according to testimony in Case 81435 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside walking a “large, super high energy” Chesapeake Bay Retriever about 6:30 p.m. on January 9, 2017, when the incident occurred.
“A few minutes into our walk, she just suddenly sat down and would not move,” the witness stated. “This is completely unlike her, and it was then that I realized she was looking up into the sky at something and as soon as I looked up, I was suddenly mesmerized by this glowing, stationary orb-like object that she was looking at as well.”
The witness had never seen anything like this object before.
“I have worked in aviation and with many airlines, and I know this object was not like anything that I have ever seen or experienced in my career or life up until tonight. I know this was a UFO. I can't explain it, but judging by the physical and emotionally overwhelming reaction that I felt during the sighting, I just ‘knew.’ After several minutes, my dog nudged me to go back inside, but I just couldn't.”
The witness then recalled having a phone.
