Cloaked UFO in daytime over Mattoon, Illinois, watertower is huge.

I was with my wife recycling at the recycle bins. The clouds looked like whip cream so I was trying out my new camera mx app filters. I put it on negative and noticed a black dot moving between the water tower and the American flag. I lost it. We drove away.

However, I continued filming the sky. Later when looking back at the video I noticed something that looked cloaked flying over the car. Upon further investigation I found that the black dot was actually a part of a triangle of dots moving in unison and other dark areas moved with them. The drive also catched many other unidentified flying objects. The video mist be watched to be believed.


I reported a cloaked ufo by our water tower in Mattoon , Ill. The event happened on 2/13/2018. I believe . I have attached a screenshot of my report in your site.

This sighting has been debunked by myself. It was filmed with a negative filter and recently I learned to reverse the filter and the cloaked ufo is in fact something on the windshield. Hopefully you can take this down or mark it as identified.

I had some crazy captures on video of various things . And I've spent hours upon hour frame by frame on them. Most often finding more going on . But , the water tower (thankfully) has been debunked. I racked my brain dealing with that video and all the questions and reality checks that come with a capture of any kind. Last thing I want is to hurt myself credibility and the ufo community as a fake video when it is actually just a mistake. The Alton Il news paper , in 2018,named Illinois as the Hotspot for that year. And it reprinted report from your/our website. Im not from that town. Never even been there. But I was reading the article and saw the 1st one was from my town Mattoon. Im reading it and to my wife that some body must've been seeing it the same time we did. It wasn't long before I realized that "somebody " was my wife and myself. It was my report . 2 reports of 5 from my town.
I since have debunked and now Is the part where I try and get the report reversed.

Sorry for the mistake and thank you,
