Cigar UFO: Tennesse family shocked over alien sighting
Members of a family in Tennessee, US, were shocked over alien sighting and they also reported strange events while they observed a cigar shaped UFO on 23 April, 2013 at 7:45 PM. This report has been obtained from a testimony included in the database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
The mother (eyewitness) begins the report by describing how she and her daughter were playing badminton at the time of the sighting.
“We were outside playing badminton on a beautiful sunny day, it was around 7:45 in the evening. I have an injured ankle that was swollen at the time (But I was still capable for outdoor activities) and all of a sudden it felt completely soaked and tingly (My whole right ankle and foot) I didn’t want to tell my daughter in case shed worry about me.”
She then describes what she and daughter saw, and how she kept looking at the object.
“I looked up and thought I saw a plane, when it really turned out to be a cigar looking white object floating silently above the tree line. I pointed it out to my daughter, who for some reason didn’t take it seriously. I found this weird. As we were playing badminton, I kept looking at it as it floated silently and slowly above the trees.”
The witness describes the direction of the object and tells us how it disappeared after a while.
“It was going SW and then suddenly I noticed it was going North. Throughout the duration of this time, I was constantly looking back and forth (quite often) and when I looked up after it turned North, I realized it had disappeared. I pointed it out, once again, to my daughter who actually didn’t care and took the time to talk me into staying outside with her.”
She further describes how her dog behaved strangely, and also talks about her daughter’s strange reactions to the sighting.
“This whole time, as well, I noticed our dog was acting strangely and looking at the trees it flew over. As I looked occasionally with him, I noticed two or three scaly figures walking where he was looking. I tried talking my daughter into going inside again, but she kept insisting everything was fine. Our dog started to walk in the direction, very slowly, the UFO had been flying to. My daughter called for him and as did I, but when he came my daughter suddenly became serious about it all.”
The witness describes how her daughter continued behaving strangely, and also complained of feeling raindrops when the sky was cloudless.
“She told me she saw a golden orange light off in the trees coming from the N angle. However, she once again insisted we stay outside. I then accidentally hit the birdie to my car and she went to get it when she complained to me that she was feeling raindrops when it was a cloudless sky. I felt it as well. Walking back, she complained to me that she had goo on her hand, but thought it was a possibility it came from the dog. Shortly after, we went inside.”
The witness then describes how she decided to report the incident, informed her father about the same, and had an argument with her daughter about the amount of time they had spent outside.
“I decided to call my father who is interested in UFOs. Only after when we sat down to report the incident and the time did we realize how short time had really been throughout the sighting and being outside. My daughter and I actually argued about how long we were outside and the specific times and how we both felt we were out for hours.”
The witness finally tells us how she and her daughter realized that they had only spent a small amount of time outside. She also describes their reaction to the incident.
“She decided to check the phone history to see when we had come in ( and just saying, I called my boyfriend shortly before we played as well) We realized it had to have happened over 15-20 minutes. Looking back, this gives us both shivers down our spines.”
