Location: Cooper's Rock, WV
Shape: Unknown
Duration:25 minutes
Me and a friend routinely go to Chestnut Ridge Park near Cooper's Rock State Forest to get a clear view of the night sky. I have a pair of fairly high powered binoculars that I keep in my car at all times. We have witnessed several obvious disks wobbling/zigzagging through the sky on multiple occasions in this area, but never anything like what we witnessed on this night.

It was a very dark and moonless night. I was scanning the treeline with my binoculars while my friend observed with his eyes. Through my binoculars I noticed a cluster of several hexagonal yellow lights. This was not a constellation, or any star formation. It immediately stunned me because I am very familiar with the area as I go there all the time, it is one of the best places to see the sky clearly close to Morgantown. I got my friend's attention and observed it with my naked eye. It was a large, quarter size at arm's length, cluster of hexagonal lights blinking on and off. We could not tell for sure if this was several objects hovering together, or lights on a larger craft, but it did appear that it was a singular craft as we were both able, through binoculars, to see smaller objects flying around the craft. Both of us felt frightened by what we saw. We observed the object for about 25 minutes. It never moved suddenly or swiftly but it did appear to be getting smaller and! farther away as the sighting went on. Eventually, we left as it was getting late. The object was still observable when we headed home.

I do want to remain totally anonymous, as I never report the objects we witness in that area, but I decided to submit this account because it was an especially startling sighting and unlike anything I or my friend had seen before. I believe that one only has to seek these things out in order to witness them, because this kind of activity seems to be happening all the time.
