A West Virginia witness reports watching a slow moving, “vibrant white” cigar-shaped object that quickly moved to the north on February 27, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside of work smoking when the object’s color first came into view.
“It was very, very white; vibrant I would say,” the witness stated. “Even when passing under the clouds it continued to have the shinny effect.”
The slow moving object did not appear to have wings.
“I saw a distinguished shape. It had no wings at all; no markings and slow flying. I went for my cell phone to try and get a picture, but to be honest, I really couldn’t stop looking at it and studying it.”
The witness could not identify the object.
“I don’t know what it was except it was a slow, cigar-shaped object, but the color white it was, the prettiest thing I have seen. And the slow movement it had; but at the same time so fluid and natural.”
When the object moved to the side of the building, the witness went inside to call his wife, but soon stepped back outside for another look.
“I had gone back outside maybe 4-5 minutes after I saw the object. I saw three jets moving to the north the same way as the object. I thought that hopefully someone else had seen this object too and may know more.”
