A Virginia witness at Stafford reported watching a glowing white object under 500 feet hovering above a school parking lot, according to testimony in Case 82365 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside behind his home about 9:35 p.m. on February 25, 2017.
“I noticed a bright white, lighted object hovering above the school parking lot or possibly further behind the parking lot over scattered homes and a wooded area lot,” the witness stated. “The object appeared about 1,250 yards away.”
The witness stood on the deck and took a photo with a cell camera.
“The light was silent and made no sound. It was there longer than 40 minutes. I thought maybe it was a helicopter or plane coming toward me, giving the illusion of a stationary light, but it just stayed hovering for a long time, no change is size or dimension.”
“When you enlarge the photo, you can see a bright V-shape uncharacteristic of an airplane or helicopter. Only other thing it could have been is a stealth fighter with that V-shape, but the V is the entire frontal length of the aircraft and a stealth doesn't have a long V like that. If you enlarge the picture, the V appears to be the propulsion system with a Saturn-like ring around the object’s middle with a dome-like top. And what appears to be an energy field or forcefield around the craft, possibly a potential cloaking device. After careful review of the photograph, I am convinced what I witnessed that night was either a U.S. government project and that's okay, or a true alien space craft.”
Virginia MUFON Field Investigator Noman Gagnon investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown.
“It is my belief that what the witness saw and captured with his Samsung-SM-N910A camera was an unidentified object, however, as to his evaluation of what he determines to be a V-shaped craft along with other related details is speculative,” Gagnon wrote in his report. “As you zoom in on this bright object, there are lens reflection artifacts within blurry pixels; similar artifacts were also seen when you zoom in at the street light below.”
