An Oklahoma witness at Oklahoma City reported watching an oval-shaped object through night vision goggles while waiting to take off from Wiley Post Airport at 6:45 p.m. on December 17, 2022, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness used night vision goggles to check out the surrounding area while waiting for the plane to take off.

“I saw an elongated, oval-shaped object,” the reporting witness stated.

The object was observed moving from the two o’clock to the four o’clock position. It was not visible without looking through the night vision goggles.

“It had no lights. When comparing it to the planes in the airspace around it, it was very large. Bigger than three 777’s. When it got to the four o’clock position it faded away quickly.”

The skies were clear.

The report contained no images, filed on December 21, 2022, and available for public viewing on December 22, 2022. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

An Oklahoma witness at Tishomingo recalled an encounter with multiple, multi-colored orbs moving overhead at 10 p.m. on May 15, 1963, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

As a teenager in the Boy Scouts, the witness was completing his OA or Order of the Arrow which is an overnight solo camping experience. The scout is dropped off in the woods at night with just a pack and a sleeping bag. The event date is approximate.

“As I lay looking at the sky, a variable number of different colored orbs appeared in the sky at a relatively high altitude,” the reporting witness stated. “For hours, I watched as the objects sped up, slowed down, maneuvered around each other.”

The objects exhibited different colors and appeared to change colors. The witness said the colors included red, green, blue, and yellow.

“Being alone didn’t bother me as they seemed a great distance and rather ‘playful.’”

On Saturday after the solo campout, all new OA candidates had to remain silent until the evening meal.

“At that meal, one of the adult participants at my table started talking about the lights he had seen in the sky the night before. He said he was an air traffic controller at the Ardmore, OK, airport and that it was unlike anything he had ever seen.”

This started a conversation that involved many of the overnight campers who had witnessed the same light show.

The report contained no images, filed on March 7, 2013. Tishomingo is a city in and the county seat of Johnston County, OK, population 3,034. Witness quotes were edited for clarity.
