An Oregon witness at the Medford Airport reported watching a hovering object that began to move and eventually completed a 90-degree turn, according to testimony in Case 92030 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness and four others were sitting outside at work watching a thunderstorm pass by at 4:45 p.m. on May 15, 2018.
“One guy said, what is that?’ the witness stated. “We looked up and saw a black cylinder hovering above us to the northwest about 1,000 to 2,000 feet. It hovered there for a minute or so. I ran and grabbed my phone and started to video record it. It flew in a level path to the north-northeast, I am guessing about one-half mile and came to a hover while maintaining the same altitude. Hovered for a second (when I zoomed in on the video recording, I noticed a flash of red on top. Very faint.). “
The object then made a 90-degree turn and flew to the northwest.
“Once on the northwest path you could see it accelerate while maintaining the same altitude, and it flew out of my sight. I recorded it for three minutes. It was black and did not make any sound that I could hear. There was an airplane running on the ground so I could not hear much. It was a great sighting and I am glad I was able to record it. I was very excited to witness this amazing sight. I am a firm believer and believe we are not alone. I am a helicopter pilot and know about flight. I was very excited to share this experience with my friends and colleagues. I even shared it with my wife (who is not a believer) and she couldn’t explain it. Always keep your eyes up!”
Oregon MUFON State Director Thomas Bowden and CAG Investigator Susan Gerberding closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
