UFO Sighting Report

Date:

October, 10, 2013

Location:

Troy, Michigan, United States

Summary:

A co-worker, a maintainence man named Randy and I, were standing outside of the front of the VALEO Troy building where we work, next to the parking lot, taking a smoke break, when I noticed something flying through the air out of the corner of my eye at a height of 1000 feet, moving VERY FAST. It moved without sound, and we both witnessed it very clearly due to it's low altitude flight line. It was delta shaped, with a distinct upper and lower half, and visible cockpit area on top.

Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 

Around 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Day/Night: 

Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

2

Duration: 

Around 10 seconds maximum

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a delta shaped aircraft, with a distinct upper and lower half defined by color, with the lower half being light gray/silver, and the upper half cockpit area on top was a beautiful silver/blue/purple medium dark color. The front of the vehicle was a rounded point, and the rear was rounded as well but much more pronounced and clearly defined. It did not have wings, as the rounded bulbous bottom went from edge to edge, and the teardrop shaped top cockpit area rounded down to the outside edges and around to the rear of the craft. The cockpit area was larger in the front and tapered down at the rear of the vehicle. It also had no visible engines whatsoever, and no openings that would be seen for concealed stealth type jet type engines, neither intake nor exaust, and no windows. It had no visible openings whatsoever. Viewing distance is estimated to be under one mile. Altitude was around 1000 to1500 feet. It was about the size of a 747 jet in size, or slightly smaller. It almost resembled a lifting body type of aircraft specifically designed to use it's body to glide into the atmosphere from space with minumum drag surfaces for frictionless flight. It would also be an ideal design for under water "flight".

Size of Object(s)

Size of the object was around 1 to 1 1/2 inches between hands held at arms length, or the size of a narrow thumb held at arms length. I would estimate that it was around the size of a 747 aircraft, or around 200 feet long, 45 to 50 feet in height, wingspan would be around 100 feet, (estimated, since it had no wings, as it was a lifting type body).

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

The object was under a mile away at an altitude of 1000 to 1500 feet.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban area with a few buildings of between three and six stories adjacent to a major freeway and shopping mall in an industrial/business zone along Stephenson Highway and I-75. The rest of the area is surburban single story, single occupancy housing.

Full Description & Details

A co-worker, a maintainence man named Randy and I, were standing outside of the front of the VALEO Troy building where we work, next to the parking lot, taking a smoke break, when I noticed something flying through the air out of the corner of my eye at a height of 1000 feet, moving VERY FAST. It moved without sound, and we both witnessed it very clearly due to it's low altitude flight line. It was around 3:00 PM in the afternoon.

The front of the vehicle was a rounded point, and the rear was rounded as well but much more pronounced and clearly defined. It did not have wings, as the rounded bottom went from edge to edge, and the teardrop shaped top cockpit area rounded down to the outside edges and around to the rear of the craft., and I have seen every type of aircraft ever flown, having done extensive work for the Department Of Defense on many classified projects, and I also live near Selfridge Air National Guard Base and have visited Wortsmith Airforce Base in Northern Michigan. I have seen first hand every flying vehicle known to man, including stealth fighters, bombers, and un-manned drones of every type known to exist. I am also a trained scientific observer, an engineer and aircraft enthusiast, and I hold a valid Top Secret Secret Spec 6 Security Clearence.

The speed of the aircraft was at least 600 Mph or more, elevation was around 1000 feet, and it was completely without sound. At least from what I could hear above the noise level of the adjacent I-75 freeway, which is 200 yards away from the building that I was standing in front of. It was totally silent and very visible. The weather was extrordinarily clear and warm for October. The aircraft was flying on a streight line, traveling on a flight line going from South South West to North North East, not too far from the tops of the multi story office buildings around me.

I was talking to my co-worker friend Randy, when I noticed the movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked at it, pointed it out to Randy, and said out loud "what the hell is that thing"? He remarked "what is that, I dont believe what I am seeing, and it's flying so LOW"! He said I cant believe I just saw that, and in broad daylight, I dont believe what I just saw. We both were astounded and speechless. He said that it must have been a UFO, and I completely agreed with his assessment of the situation.

Airplanes are not allowed to do that except for the police helicopters we frequently see flying over the adjacent freeway because of the frequent accidents there. And a jet flying that low traveling to the nearby small airport would have a chance of colliding with a building or helicopter in that area, and the pilot would lose his license for doing it except if it was an extreme emergency.

We watched it fly by until it disappeared to the horizon, completely without sound or disturbance of the air, or exaust that would be seen from a jet engine. It also had no visible engines whatsoever, and no openings that would be seen for concealed stealth jet type engines, neither intake nor exaust.

Flight time observed was around eight to ten seconds total from the first sighting to my right at the limit of my perepherial vision line to it's disappearence at the horizon. I was facing North at the time of the sighting, as was Randy. Visibility was extremely good, with few obstructions except for the tall buildings around us, sight lines are very clear. A line of tall trees are located a quarter of a mile to the west of our position, but were not in our line of sight of the flying vehicle at all.

The astounding thing was the shape of the aircraft, along with it's incredible speed, and the total lack of sound or distirbance given it's altitude. The speed was so fast my eyes had trouble following the object, but it was very hard to miss given it's size. I see all kinds of jets overflying the area going to the local airports quite clearly, and this was nothing like that, and did not even come close to any stealth aircraft we have in the US. The jets flying in the area are so clear that you can see the windows of the aircraft all the time, and this aircraft had no windows whatsoever visible on it exterior given it's low flying height.

The front of the vehicle was a rounded point, and the rear was rounded as well but much more pronounced and clearly defined. It did not have wings, as the rounded bottom went from edge to edge, and the teardrop shaped top cockpit area rounded down to the outside edges and around to the rear of the craft.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

There are no known man made or natural objects it could have been. No chance whatsoever, unless the US Government was flying a new type of stealth aircraft in broad daylight in a high visibility populated area, which can fly without sound and no visible menans of propulsion.

Witness Background

I am a test engineer and experimental mechanic with more than 40 years of experience. I have extensive military and DOD experience working on many classified government R&D projects since 1974 with the birth of the first internet use by ARPA. I have also worked on many projects for ARPA and DARPA. I have years of experience and education, including use of the scientific method and investigation.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have extensive experience with all types of known aircraft past and present, including civilian, classified, and military aircratf, un-manned aircraft, and un-manned drones. I have also seen manned baloons and weather baloons, light home built and experimental aircraft, drones and remote aircraft, ultralights, and radio controlled hobby aircraft, some of which are very large, and chinese lanterns. I am also very familiar with astronomical observations and space objects, including viewing the ISS overflights and space shuttle, as well as rockets and missles. Also fireworks and home built rockets. I have also had multiple very close UFO sightings in the past (under 100 feet away), verified by MUFON, and I may have seen this craft doing an overflight of my home in Roseville Michigan at night during this past summer in 2014 on a clear moonlit night, cutting a line through the light thin high clouds. This was also reported to MUFON.

Other Comments

This was the most amazing and un-saucer like UFO or any aircraft that I have ever seen. This is what the space shuttle should have looked like or our next space shuttle for that matter. It had the most aerodymanic and functional design that I have ever seen in and aircraft. It made the SR-71 look like a childs toy model, as well as our stealth aircraft, and the Airforce's X-71 Space Plane. The UFO passively resembled the new un-manned Airforce X-47B drone without the wings attached. But it was much larger, more streamlined, and had no wings.
