Two large, dark rectangular obects fly low overhead

I stepped outside to view the full moon around 9:00pm tonight,the 4th of October. I was standing alone looking up at the moon. It was quiet except for the distant muffled sound of the freeway. Suddenly, I heard an extremely loud, low pitched pulsing sound to my right. As I turned towards it two very large, dark rectangular objects appeared abruptly over the nearby tree tops.

They were identical. Each one had a large red light and a few smaller white lights.

Each was approximately the size of 2 RVS together. There were no propellers. I was standing in a wide open space and they flew right over it, lower than a helicopter would. As soon as they passed over me, I ran into the shadows of the trees and waited for my heart to calm down.

I was shaken enough I needed to talk to someone and went to speak to a man who lives next door in a tiny house he has converted from a former MRI truck. It weighs 34,000 pounds! Why am I emphasizing the weight? Because this man was on the phone with his mother when he heard a loud pulsing sound and his entire tiny house truck began to shake. Not just vibrate, it shook. He came out and we discussed it at length.

My ex-husband served in the Marine Corps for 21 years. I have lived on bases all over the world. I have never seen or heard anything like this, flying overhead before.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she seemed to us to be both sincere, and serious-minded. We suspect that she is an excellent witness. PD))


Hello Peter,

Turns out we have a helicopter airport nearby that specializes in heavy lift operations. They have Chinooks in their fleet. My partner believes that's what I saw last night. Still. . . no propellers seen on a night with an intensely bright full moon. Hmmmm.



Peter the moon was extremely bright as they flew right over me, with the moon as backdrop and still I saw no propellers. Also only one, unblinking, red light. A few scattered small white lights, also not blinking.



Yes I saw only one large red light on each and a scattering of small white lights on each. I did call the helicopter place and left a voicemail for a call back.
