A North Carolina witness at Sanford reported watching a shape-changing object “darting” around the night sky at 4 a.m. on November 28, 2022, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

“This object was darting around,” the reporting witness stated. “Looked at times like a brain with transmissions occurring inside and changing colors. Never seen before and I have worked at Area 51.”

The witness called neighbors the following day and they confirmed seeing this object and being unfamiliar with anything like it.

“We would like some ideas as to what it could be. The sky was clear. Animals were going crazy in a couple of videos.”

The witness and family were upstairs and standing on an outdoor deck. The witness mentioned that the object’s shape was “changing” at times. The witness states that several videos were taken, but no images were included in the report, filed on November 28, 2022, and released for public viewing on December 22, 2022.

Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Sanford is a city in Lee County, NC, population 30,261. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

A North Carolina witness at Fayetteville recalled an encounter with a disc-shaped object hovering in the backyard at 9 p.m. on February 19, 1962, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness had just gone to bed and saw colored lights coming through the window.

“I looked out my window and saw the round, disc-shaped UFO,” the reporting witness stated. “There was a tree beside my house. The UFO went between the house and the tree and stopped.”

The witness described the object as silver in color. The witness said at that point the object started to flash colored lights on the ground. The object stayed in that position for about 10 minutes.

“Then it went to our next-door neighbor’s house but it had to cross the street. Like a flash, it was in the neighbor’s backyard. Again it flashed lights on the ground but didn’t stay there long.”

Then as fast as it appeared, the object was gone.

The report contained no images, filed on June 24, 2003. Fayetteville is a city in and the county seat of Cumberland County, NC, population 208,501. Witness quotes were edited for clarity.
