UFO Sighting Report


December, 21, 2012


Tallahassee, Florida, United States


Multiple large glowing spheres flying in formation. They were silent and moving at low altitude and speed.

Date Reported:

3/10/2017 11:53:45 AM

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 

7 to 10


5 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The objects appeared to be spherical and orange in color. It looked as if they were surrounded in something like plasma energy. They best description would be to compare them to time lapse film of the suns corona. It was as if the objects were surrounded by energy in motion.

Size of Object(s)

The size of the object appeared to be about the size of a garbage truck or large moving van. Perhaps somewhat larger. At arms length my hand would have covered one or two.

Description of Area / Surroundings

We were in the state capital and about 100 yards south of the capital building. This would put us at the highest elevation in the city.

Full Description & Details

On December 21, 2012,at 10:15 pm, my wife and I were driving home from dinner and a movie. We were driving south on Monroe St. in Tallahassee Florida and had come to a stop at the traffic light at Gaines St. when we saw a group of 10 extremely bright glowing spheres coming from the west and traveling due east. They were in formation and traveling at 100 mph or less and at low altitude, approximately 1000 feet or less. They were moving under power and the distance between the objects remained constant. My wife was driving and I was in the front passenger seat. I rolled down my window and put my head out to see if they made any sound. They did not. A woman stopped at the traffic light to the right of our vehicle rolled down her window and asked what they were. I told her UFO' as I certainly could not identify them. I can say with absolute certainty that they were not airplanes or helicopters or any other type of conventional aircraft including remote controlled drones, balloons, or Japanese lanterns. As the group of 10 spheres passed by, they were followed at a short distance by 2 more identical objects. As this unfolded, drivers and passengers in cars to the left of us were also looking skyward at the objects. Some of these had also rolled down they're windows to put they're heads out.

I observed the spheres carefully to determine if these were individual objects or part of a much larger object and concluded that they were in fact separate.

My wife wanted to attempt following the formation but I strongly objected and we drove home. Once at home I immediately filed an online report with MUFON.

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

I have ruled out all natural and known man made explanations. This was a highly unusual event.

Witness Background

I am a CNC programmer and a graduate of The Rochester Institute of Technology.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I think that all evidence can only come to the conclusion that we are in the presence of extra terrestrials. I have read several books by Richard Dolan on the subject. While it is the case that I had strong opinions at the time of the sighting, I would be unwilling to come to any definitive conclusion as to what we saw. Unknown man made technology is a possible expaination

Other Comments

I have always said that I would like to see a UFO. When it actually happened, I most definitely did not want to be seeing it. The sight was unsettling beyond words. I am willing to tell anyone interested in what I saw about the event regardless of the reaction I get. I may not know what it is I saw but I am certain that it was what I was.
