A Michigan witness became ‘terrified’ during two evening encounters with “an extremely bright light” that moved and hovered before finally dimming out and disappearing on May 2, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness first observed the bright light while outside talking on a cell phone and realized “it was airborne and was moving toward my position.”
“The light flew quickly through the trees for a few seconds before nearly instantly flying above my truck, at which point I got out of my truck and ran inside terrified,” the witness stated.
The witness then noticed the object had moved behind his house, was traveling in a different direction, and was “moving 90 degrees.”
The witness went inside and returned with a family member and the two of them watched the object together – but at a distance now.
After a few seconds, the object moved again, and then stopped, repeating this action until it “slowly disappeared until no longer visible” – reminding the witness of a “candle slowly burning out.”
About two hours later, the same witness and his girlfriend were outside and saw the same object together.
“She saw it and became scared, but it only lasted about three seconds before it dimmed out and disappeared exactly the way it had before.”
The witness does not believe the object was a satellite.
“The object made no noise at all, flew slowly at times, but changed direction and flew extremely fast at times. I’ve ruled out it being a satellite because of the way it moved and its visual intensity. Also the speed in which it flew horizon to horizion and the fact it dims until dissapearing rule that out.”
The witness says that he was terrified of the object and wanted to run away each time.
“I’ve never seen an airplane fly the way it did, and living on an air base most of my life, have never been so scared of something in the air. Each time I saw the object I was terrified and had an intese feeling of being followed, had an intense feeling of wanting to run.”

MI, May 2, 2011 – A bright white light moving erraticly. MUFON Case # 28901.
I was sitting in my truck talking on my cellphone to my girl friend when i looked out to my left and noticed an extremly bright light coming from the woods, then i realized after watching for a few seconds that it was airborne and was moving toward my position.
The light flew quickly thru the trees for a few seconds before nearly instantly flying above my truck, at which point i got out of my truck and ran inside terrified
before i went all the way inside i poked my head out of the garage again and it had moved behind my house and switch the direction in which it was moving 90 degrees.
then i proceeded to run inside my house and get my mom to come outside, by the time we walked outside it had moved a good distance and we watched it and noticed that it had a slight wobble to it
when it moved and after a few seconds of it flying slowly it stopped, moved again for a second, stopped then started moving again and got bright and slowly dissapeared until no longer visible.
the way it dissapeared reminded me of a candle slowly burning out. About 2 hours later my girlfriend and i were standing outside talking about the event, and then happened to look over to the original position i saw it pointing, and when sure enough it was there again, exactly the same as i saw it before she saw it and became scared but it only lasted about 3 seconds before it dimmed out and dissapeared exactly the way it had before.
The object made no noise at all, flew slowly at times but changed direction and flew extremly fast at times. Ive ruled out it being a satillite because of the way it moved and its visual intesity, also the speed in which it flew horizon to horizon and the fact it dims until disappearing rule that out.
Ive never seen an airplane fly the way it did, and living on an air base most of my life have never been so scared of something in the air. Each time i saw the object i was terrified and had an intese feeling of being followed, had an intense feeling of wanting to run.
