On July 4th, 2013 at approximately 9:45 PM, I was sitting in my living room watching TV. The only reason I went outside that night was because my neighbor decided for some odd reason to cut his grass in the middle of the night. It was dark outside, so the sound of a lawnmower coming from next door at that time of night was odd. I put on my shoes, and walked outside to have a look.

When I got outside, sure enough, there was the neighbor on a riding mower with someone walking beside him with a flashlight. I've never seen anyone cut their grass in the dark before. I had a quick laugh about it, then turned to my left to head toward the front door of my house. When I turned to my left, I noticed something odd in the sky coming toward me through the treeline. It was orange in color, with no blinking lights, no port or starboard lights, and no sound. The object was traveling toward the Southwest at a pretty fast rate of speed.

I had my Iphone on me at the time, so I was able to get a few photos and video of the object. I took a few still shots, then shot some video. After the 1st object flew out of visual range, a second object about a minute or so later flew toward me. This one looked exactly like the first one did. The object was orange in color, no blinking lights, no sound, no nothing. It was traveling in the same direction as the first object. I was able to get photos and video of this one as well. When the second object flew out of visual, I saw one more odd thing. There was a very fast streak of white light that whipped through the sky, heading toward the Southwest as well.

I reported my sighting to (MUFON) Mutual UFO Network, and my case was assigned to UFO investigator Rich Hoffman. After some thorough investigation, MUFON was unable to debunk what I saw. There was one witness that also saw what I saw that night. A neighbor of mine was on her porch that night. She saw the first object, but did not see the two other objects because she went back inside.

I am a Navy veteran and was trained on identifying Russian ships, and Russian aircraft back in the 1980's. I have a pretty keen eye, and I am pretty familiar with the normal air traffic that flies in the skies in my area. Whatever this was that flew over my house on July 4th, 2013 was no normal or conventional type aircraft. MUFON agrees.
