An Oregon witness in the Fish Lake area reported photographing an odd light beam in the sky after watching unusual insect behavior in the same area where a Bigfoot researcher was working the previous day, according to March 19, 2014, testimony in Case 54822 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness notes that a Bigfoot researcher was in the area September 1, 2012, and had "recorded a very long Bigfoot call" at 8:30 p.m. The witness and her husband were in the same area traveling home on September 2, 2012, along a stretch of road seven miles long.
"We looked up and saw black streaks in the sky," the witness stated. "They were swarms. I didn't hear a sound and I know that they weren't bees or locusts; we thought they were mosquitoes. The swarm only followed the road and the multitude of them ran longer than the length of the entire road (7 miles). We knew that this was a highly unusual activity and decided to pull the truck over and park."
"The first photo shows an oncoming swarm. It is highly unusual for a swarm to form at this time of day. You can see in the first photo that there was one light in the sky or what appeared to be a light in the sky at the time of the photograph. The second photo shows three lights in the sky."
The witness then took the third image.
"I turned to the back of the parked truck to photograph what I couldn't see, but could feel. The IR on my camera is always on. I clicked the third image. I couldn't see anything but found it compelling to take the photograph. I put it on my computer and saw orbs traveling in the beam that the IR on my camera captured. I also saw the swarm encircling the beam."
The witness then researched insects on the Internet.
"Insects’ senses vary from mammals, and one of the most important traits they have is their ability to perceive heat. It appears that the beam was giving off heat. Insects, especially blood drinkers, like mosquitoes, use heat detection as a means of hunting prey, focusing in on big heat sources like big animals. Even though the beam couldn't be seen with human eyes the insects detected that it was there."
The case was filed March 19, 2014. Oregon MUFON is investigating. Fish Lake is a reservoir in Jackson County, OR. Oregon has a current UFO Alert Rating of 4 with a higher than average number of recent reports nationally. Oregon had 10 UFO reports in February 2014 - the 14th highest reporting state - while California had 59 reports - the highest reporting state in the nation.
