A British witness at Exeter reported watching an orb-like object moving overhead at 75 feet that briefly directed a bright light to ground level and then moved quickly away, according to testimony in Case 83334 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness and a friend were outside “rabiting” at 11:30 p.m. on April 17, 2017, when the incident occurred.
“At night I always look up at the sky, looking at the stars, especially on a nearly clear night, which it was and very quiet,” the witness stated. “There were no street lights for about five miles.”
The two were walking along a country lane which was about nine feet wide.
“My friend was looking at the ground and said, did you see that” And I replied, yes, did you see that? I saw a bright, orb-like object with a pink outer edge moving slowly over us. Then a bright light shined down on us and lit up the road for about two seconds. Then it took off at a remarkable speed and made no noise at all. The orb was about 75 feet high. And about as big as a mini car.”
British MUFON Field Investigator Karl Webb closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
