A Missouri witness at Kansas City reported watching 25 orbs crossing the sky with “focused intent,” according to testimony in Case 88140.
The witness and a friend were outside in daylight with clear skies at 3:30 p.m. on November 19, 2017.
“We were observing a small hawk on the hunt for squirrels and small prey,” the witness stated. “As we watched him dodge and dart about, I looked up from the hawk and plain as day and clear as a bell we saw 25 orbs in a frenzy and all working the same area.”
The witness said the objects were kind of clear to blue in color.
“They initially looked to be big bubbles and then my friend and I both noticed that these orbs had small wedge-like wings on them. Kind of like a bubble with sharp V-shaped wings attached to the center of the orbs. Each orb had two wings. One on each side of the round orb or object. The wings were pointed and sharply joined in the front and then flaring out and progressively became wider at the back of the object. They were 100 percent not just floating in the wind and being tossed about by the wind currents. While my friend tried to take a picture with his cell phone, I counted each and every one of them within my sight. There were 25 of them. All orbs were totally busily working in a fixed area straight out in front of us and absolutely nothing to block our view. They looked to be focused on working in a small, contained area in the sky. Some orbs moved up, some down, some sideways and all at the same time staying close to one another. Constant movement in all directions. But never straying from their original area that we sighted them in.”
The witness said it looked like fish feeding on fish food.
“We watched for about two minutes and then this group started to move off to the north of us. We walked about 90 feet as to look again and they seemed to just fade out as they sped on quickly out of our sight. My friend was constantly trying to take pictures with his cell phone and it is a good one. It would not take pictures of the orbs. My friend’s cell phone totally went down and out with no power for about five minutes. And within about five minutes after the orbs were gone, his phone powered right up and was working fine. I have never seen a UFO of any type in my life, and I have looked many times to see one and not with one result until today. And in my own back yard. I am an older man now and too old to waste my time telling big lies on the Internet for attention. My friend saw it all as well. Clear as a bell. No chance in the world for it to be anything other than 25 orbs with easy to see wings on them. Good day.”
Missouri MUFON Field Investigator Lawrence Tyree closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
