Black Cylinder object seen in the French quarter of New Orleans

I was walking down Iberville St. towards Bourbon St. at est. time of 1845hrs CST. When I noticed a black cylinder object hovering above the buildings (est. 200-300ft). I noticed there was no sound from the object that I could tell. I stopped to men at the corner of Bourbon St. and asked them if they where seeing the same thing. They looked up and saw the object and stated it must be a UFO here for the partying, at that time other stopped and noticed that we were looking up and they notice the object. The object was moving at a slow rate heading in the direction of the Mississippi river. I know that people think I was drinking but, I was not and I know what I saw was real and that others saw it too. If anyone else saw that object in the New Orleans area please report it.


We spoke at length with this witness, and we found him to be quite credible. He had the presence of mind to call the object to the attention of other witnesses, and his description of the object was quite precise. We do not know what it was he witnessed, but similar objects have been reported to NUFORC. An object, apparently similar in appearance, was reported from Houston, TX, on the morning of 08SE00. It was reported to have been seen hovering over the outer ring road at approximately 0615 hrs. (local) on that date. PD
