An Iowa witness at Oelwein reported watching a black object with red lights at the tree top level, according to testimony in Case 92591 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside having a cigarette about 1:15 a.m. on June 9, 2018.
“I happened to be looking at the sky because I heard like a helicopter noise and I saw a circular-shaped object that had red lights that was flying behind a tree in a straight line,” the witness stated. “I really didn't have any necessarily feelings about it. Just kind of odd, I guess. I mean I watch UFO shows with that type of thing so I kind of look for the stuff to begin with which is why I'm writing this. But in a way I kind of look like it could have been a drone or something like that. But I've never seen one around here and I've never seen one fly at night or quite look that way.
Iowa MUFON Field Investigator David Kreiter closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
