Bucks County (PA) Paranormal Investigations with lead investigators Eric Mintel and Dominic Sattele took their team to Doylestown, PA, to research the area and interview a witness to UFO activity that was captured on video. The group posts their investigations on a YouTube channel. This story can be found here.

Please be cautious with legends, myths, and anomalous reports as the accounts generally contain only witness statements and are not scientific. Many investigators concentrate on bringing you the best witness testimony but there may be known behavior that is natural or manmade behind the claims.

Eric and Dominic interviewed witness Leslie Bilotta, a local businesswoman, who came forward after seeing multiple, brightly-lit objects in the sky outside her home at 2 a.m. on April 6, 2021. Since that time, additional witnesses have come forward.

“I witnessed a group of lights above Lake Galena near Peace Valley Park,” Bilotta said.

Bilotta got up one morning at 2 a.m. to use the bathroom and noticed the lights in the sky, and stepping outside, saw that they were not making any sound. She used a laser pointer at the objects.

“All of a sudden, the one object that was moving stopped moving,” she said. “It scared me.”

The witness was able to shoot a video of the objects. Mintel and Sattele conducted their interview at the site on April 23, 2021.

The National UFO Reporting Center has multiple Doylestown, PA, cases, including the following 10 reports going back 12 years.

Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be resolved as something natural or man-made. These raw reports are for information only as investigators review the facts and attempt to resolve the case. The following are excerpts from the larger witness statements from the case that seem to sum up what they saw.

August 22, 2022, a circle-shaped object was seen as the witness was driving. “Saw a circular object with blinking red and green lights that looked like it was dropping out smaller objects,” the reporting witness stated.

June 12, 2020, a triangle-shaped object was seen on a two-acre property in the New Hope-Solebury area as the witness sat in a hot tub at 11:48 p.m. “We saw a large dark object hovering just above the tree line about 200 yards away,” the reporting witness stated. “The object was about the size of half a football field. We could feel its vibration above the hot tub bubbles but it was quiet. It seemed to be in the shape of a triangle. There were three green lights on the object. It moved slowly and then it disappeared.”

October 11, 2019, a cylinder-shaped object was seen at 4 p.m. as the witness was driving home from work along Almshouse Road heading toward Route 611. “It looked like a 737 plane with its lights off and it was parked directly on top of a house,” the reporting witness stated. “It looked like the UFO was attached to the roof of the house and the sky was blocked out in between the roof and the UFO. I looked in the rearview mirror as I passed it and it was still there.”

February 5, 2016, two bright lights were seen in the southern sky at 7 p.m. “They appeared between the stars Sirius and Betelgeuse, and moved little, if at all,” the reporting witness stated. “The lights were about -1 magnitude brightness. After several seconds, they faded and then disappeared from view. There were no clouds in that part of the sky. The lights were star-like and mostly white with a trace of blue. Both objects were identical in color and tone. I doubt these were commercial or military aircraft. There is not enough information to judge distance or altitude.”

June 17, 2014, a circle of light was seen at midnight. “I saw a small circle of bright white light that kept disappearing and then reappearing approximately 10-20 feet from each point going from low to high in the trees,” the reporting witness stated.

April 6, 2014, two bright orange orbs are seen at 8:20 p.m. “Me, my brother, sister, and a friend saw two bright orange orbs flying with each other and then a piece of one broke off of one which was also orange,” the reporting witness stated. “It floated around for a minute and then rejoined the original craft and then both crafts blinked out.”

July 9, 2012, a slow-moving, and low-flying rectangle-shaped object was seen at 9 p.m. “It was slowly traveling over CB West High School when I got a good look at it,” the reporting witness stated. “It was a dark rectangle, with like eight white lights under it in two rows to make about 16 lights total. There was like one red and one green light in the backside of the rectangle (underneath).”

January 3, 2012, a large red fireball was seen moving west to the east making no sound at 1 a.m. “It was large (the size of a full moon) but much closer, no sound,” the reporting witness stated. “We were able to see it for approximately three seconds before trees blocked the view. It was a very clear quiet night. The next day at work, I was talking to another nurse and she was telling me how she was driving home from work on January 3, 2012, and described the same fireball as we did. She said it was around 1 a.m.”

June 16, 2011, a dark, rectangle-shaped object was seen at 6 p.m. “Dark in color, maybe black,” the reporting witness stated. “Looked like a long, rectangular balloon. Kept bending with the wind. Seemed to be traveling straight down Ferry Road from Park Avenue towards Swamp Road.”

January 1, 2011, multiple lights are seen at 10:30 p.m. “During the estimated time of 10:30 to 11 p.m. many residents of the city of Doylestown stopped on the side of the road and as we looked up there were 18 spotted UFOs hovering about four telephone poles up in height in the sky,” the reporting witness stated. “And as they started to move some changed their colors from an orange or a red transition through white and into a different shade of red or orange. As they moved, they moved as a group, not at the same time in a sequence, and then all of a sudden they disappeared into the night.”
