We've got a pretty astonishing photo a UFO - specifically a large flying saucer - to share! A mother and son in North Dallas spotted a large circular object with several lights, about "15 stories high," fly over their neighborhood. Later on Facebook, they saw a photo of the same craft on their news feed - but the photo was taken from south Dallas. This means this craft was super large and possibly quite high in the sky. The photo was also posted on Twitter, where you can - additionally - read more buzz about it.
When I first looked at this photo, I thought search lights obscured by some clouds. So did another person online (read more below). However, the witness is positive this was not search lights, but a craft hiding behind some clouds.
Here's the photo:
And here's the full witness report from MUFON:
My son and I had just gotten outta the car and were heading inside. We have this habit of staring up into the sky at night sometimes because we've always been interested in the whole UFO thing. He saw it and said "Hey Mom, look at that." I looked up and just assumed it was a passenger plane, even though the two nearest airports are quite a ways away from where we are, we just sort of brushed it off and went inside. Even though I had never seen those many lights on an airplane before, we continued inside. It wasn't until Sunday when I got onto FaceBook and saw the posting that I flashed back to what we saw. I then realized that what we saw had absolutely no sound. If my son hadn't have noticed it ( the lights were quite bright ) we never would have seen it. And I realized that it was flying awfully low to be that far away from the nearest airport. If I had to measure the distance from the ground where it was I guess I would say it was about 15 stories high. It had been raining a couple of days prior to that and it was really cloudy. We could see the formation of lights ( that flashed a bit, then stopped ) thru the clouds as it flew along at a moderate speed. We only watched it for about 20 or 30 seconds. It quietly flew/glided directly over my apt complex and I can't believe no one else saw it. There was no wind that night. And I'm in the north part of Dallas and the pic was taken in Oak Cliff, which is in the south-ish. So it flew North to South. According to whomever posted the pic on FaceBook, it was taken a little before/after approximately 8pm. My son and I got out of our car around 8:10pm headed inside, so I'm guessing it was the same object. Since the clouds were blocking our complete view of it we never saw the actual structured craft. Only lights in a circular pattern.
Someone commented on the report, suggesting search lights as the culprit:
This was not a ufo....it was search lights people use for big events such as the state fair that was goin on close to south dallas...dat particular night there was extra search lights at the state fair n also other ecents sorrounding dallas...and the ones from the others events around dallas had colored searched lights n could b seen from far away...
But the witness does not agree, here's their reply:
I'm the person that posted the info from above. I know search lights when I see them. What my son and I saw were not search lights. Where I live is no where near Fair Park, or any other kind of events facility that would have utilized search lights that night. What we saw passed directly over our heads, therefore we were not seeing it from far away. This photo was taken from a post on YouTube after it evidently flew into the Oak Cliff area. If a person were to have taken a photo from a couple of miles away from my apt complex it would look exactly like the photo. I appreciate your input but you did not see what I saw.
So far, two people saw this UFO, and search lights or not, others should have seen it, too! If you saw this, please report your sighting!
