Pennsylvania witness reports 'short being' running from property

Roger Marsh

A Pennsylvania witness at Elizabethtown reported watching a "short being" run away from the property shed at 9:45 p.m. on July 2, 2023, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness and his wife were sitting on a back patio talking when a motion light went off that was attached to their backyard shed about 30 to 35 feet away.

“My wife’s car is parked a couple of feet in front of the shed where the light shines off the front left side,” the reporting witness stated. “At first I didn’t really think too much of it but I continued watching for just a moment. Then very quickly, I saw a very short ‘being’ run from behind the shed out past a gap and behind the car from our perspective.”

The witness described the skin color as “very tan looking.”

The witness described the being in the report.

“It was barely taller than the hood of the car which is a small sedan. So roughly 3 to 3 ½ feet in height. Its body was small and slender and its head was bigger and more rounded. Its eyes were huge and took up most of its facial space. The eyes were black and very shiny. I could see two eyes looking towards me as it ran by like it knew we were sitting there. I felt as if we made eye contact as it ran by and I was genuinely left speechless for a moment.”

Immediately after the being ran behind the witness’s car there was a flash of green light nearby.

“Seemed barely 15-20 feet in the air and that was it – it vanished into thin air. We never saw anything else and were honestly so freaked out we came back inside. After initially seeing the being’s eyes and the feeling that I saw them so clearly I felt like I had made eye contact with it. I had an overwhelming feeling of emotions and my eyes didn’t stop watering for a while.”

The couple became consumed with what had happened and talked about it for a long time. The couple reported that they have never had an encounter like this before.

The report included no images, filed on July 3, 2023, and posted for public viewing on July 10, 2023. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).


Pennsylvania was rated 8th in total U.S. UFO sightings for July 2023 with 25 cases filed, according to the MUFON August 2023 newsletter. California topped the list with 75 cases.

There were 39 entity cases reported nationally in July 2023.
