A Pennsylvania witness at Morrisville reported wanting to see an anomalous object and then saw an orange light in the trees on an adjacent property at 10:30 p.m. on April 9, 2023, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

Based on my two-year research project studying hundreds of the best UFO cases from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a small percentage of witnesses willingly tried to see objects and then had a sighting. Some witnesses felt as though the objects were communicating with them. The research is included in two editions of UFO Cases of Interest.

The witness works in customer support and is a musician.

“I want to start this off by saying I’ve been trying to actively make contact for a while now using meditation and CE-5-like cognitive thought sequencing techniques,” the reporting witness stated.

While out on an evening walk between 8–8:45 p.m., the witness is unsure if something anomalous was seen.

“I did see two very high, distant white lights that traveled off, one of them flaring, but it was impossible to know if they were anything significant or just space trash or something.”

Then, at 10:30 p.m., the witness was standing in a dark bathroom brushing their teeth and happened to look out the window.

“In the trees past my neighbor’s house, an orange light suddenly appeared and flared. It blinked at me. I called my partner in saying, ‘I think it’s a UFO.’ He took one look at it and had the usual instinctual fear reaction he has when he sees something unusual and he left the room. It continued to blink at me and then disappeared.”

The witness then opened the window to listen for any sounds or anything unusual. The object then returned again and disappeared again after about a minute of being there.

The witness pulled out a cell phone to capture the object.

“The included video was the third time it appeared and flared. The video quality is not the best but I kept steady and just filmed it quietly until it disappeared from sight.”

But after putting away the phone, the witness saw something unusual.

“It looked like a long shape or a cigar shape or perhaps the rounded edge of something larger with a row of orange lights like tiny glowing windows moving off into the trees from the same distance as the initial orange ball of light but closer towards my property.”

The witness then saw something unusual.

“Right after the orange window object vanished beyond the tree line, my neighbor’s lights started to flicker like their power was affected. Only their house seemed to be affected as far as I could tell; no other streetlights or my house or anything was affected. But it was right in front of me so I could see it happen.”

The witness included a map that shows the approximate location where the ball of light was located and a dotted line that indicates the approximate path the windowed object took. It is not unusual in NUFORC reports to have the witness say they attached a video, but no video is there due to upload problems as there are size restrictions.

“It was at helicopter height but not like any helicopter I’ve observed — nor was anything active on my flight radar at the time.”

The report included one map, filed on April 10, 2023, and released for public viewing on May 19, 2023. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to MUFON.

Please remember 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.


Pennsylvania was rated fourth in total U.S. UFO sightings for May 2023 with 25 cases filed, according to the MUFON June 2023 newsletter. Pennsylvania shared the rating with Florida. California topped the list with 45 cases.

There were 106 circle cases reported nationally in May 2023.
