Reported: 2017-04-26 18:23 Pacific
Duration: 2 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Ponca City, OK, USA

Shape: Circle
Characteristics: Lights on object, Aircraft nearby

Flying on American airline flight 299 to Tulsa, saw two craft. One a half circle with two lights bordering the entire outer edge of shape. Next to it was the typical saucer shape, glowing orange.


This is a watercolor I tried to make as close to what I saw. It was late, and very dark out. Storms to the southeast direction caused the occasional flash, which is why I put yellow in the sky.

We were so high, could not see much of the ground. A bit of wispy clouds below. The half circle with lights was bigger than the saucer nearby. Both were very bright!!!

First one was difficult to see details, except the lights. 2nd was glowing the orangy/yellow/pink. I saw this scene for maybe a minute or two, my niece was asleep, so I said nothing.

I do not know if anyone saw it but I suspect the pilot did because he flipped on the cabin lights and I could no longer see anything outside.



Witness has submitted a rather detailed illustration, done in watercolor, of the craft she witnessed. Please see the NUFORC homepage posting for April 28, 2017. Also, she has corrected the time and date to 23:45 hrs. (CDT on Tuesday night, April 25, 2017. PD
