The witness was talking to a friend on the telephone at 6:02 p.m. on April 1, 2018.
“It was still blue skies with no clouds when I looked up and saw a black disc flying from the north coming over my house as it was flying,” the witness stated. “It turned over and over from left to right about three times in a second, maybe a second-and-a-half, and did the same thing going the other direction. It hovered in one place just south of the house for about 10 seconds and then continued south. There was no vapor trail, no lights that I could see of any kind except for a glow of a turquoise-orange that I could see when the object was flipping over left to right and right to left.”
The witness did not believe any known craft could complete maneuvers like that.
“An aircraft doing tight turns like that would probably make the pilot pass out from the G-forces and the plane would probably fall apart if it was a normal airplane. I was wondering if maybe the government has an experimental craft. I have seen a stealth bomber and fighter flying overhead. This did not look anything like that. I lost sight of the object as it went over some trees headed southeast. Maybe the Tampa Airport saw something on their radar. If it's not an airplane, then I think I just saw my proof that we are not alone in the universe – even though I am intelligent enough to know that the percentages are high enough to know that we probably aren't alone anyway.”
Florida MUFON CAG Investigator James Horne closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
