Looking Back at 2022

A Florida witness at Vero Beach reported watching two, comet-like objects descend and hover just above the tree line during a concert at 7:30 p.m. on February 12, 2022, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness was attending a concert and noticed two bright orange, fiery lights with long trailing tails that descended in unison, side-by-side, at a perfect perpendicular angle toward the horizon.

“They hovered stationary above the tree line,” the reporting witness stated. “One disappeared and the other remained. The remaining light began flying in a slow U formation, back and forth, up and down a few times.”

Then the other object reappeared. The two moved in different configurations over the course of two minutes, at one time forming the infinite symbol, while taking turns disappearing and reappearing.

“The entire crowd of concert-goers was present and many of us just stood in awe watching the flying objects instead of the band on stage.”

On this date, the Vero Beach Blues & BBQ Festival was taking place. An investigator would be checking with the concert organizers to see if they were using any lighting equipment that may have caused that.

The report included no images, filed on February 15, 2022. Vero Beach is a city in and county seat of Indian River County, FL, population 15,220. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

A Florida witness at Daytona Beach recalled an encounter with a silent, hovering, cigar-shaped object at 11 p.m. on April 14, 1965, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness had gotten off work at 11 o’clock that night and went for a ride in rural Volusia County with friends. The incident date is approximate.

“We observed a large object in the sky in a direct line in front of us,” the reporting witness stated. “It was so close to the ground, about the distance of a six-story building. We could see into the top lighted windows.”

The witness said that there were some colored lights at the bottom of the craft and it was completely silent and moving slowly.

“It then stopped to the front of our car about two-and-a-half bus lengths ahead. We got out of the car to get a better look at it.”

The witness is unclear about the next few minutes but recalls getting back inside the car and the craft took off at a high rate of speed from a dead stop with no noise.

“It then made a sharp right turn like nothing I've ever seen even to this day. We turned our car around to see but it wasn't any longer in sight.”

The friends have never talked much about it, but a few years ago, the witness asked her husband to draw what he had seen.

“I sat across the room and did the same. Our pictures were alike. We were not scared, more in awe. It was a gray-silver color.”

The report included no images, filed on October 22, 2003. Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County, FL, population 72,647. Witness quotes were edited for clarity.
