Bright white bell shaped craft bursts into yellow and orange flames immediately dissapearing ....

at approximately 12:22am 7/18/13 thursday morning myself and 2 other witness,s observed the strangest occurence any of us have ever seen ...

This occured/observed from lebanon, ohio , ...

At 12:22am thursday morning we observed a bell shaped object in the sky. ...

The object was white ,,, it glowed like the moon ...

No navigational lights ,,, no beacon light ,,, no engine or rotor sound what so ever ....

The bell shaped objects glow intensified a brilliant white ....

With very little motion ,,, it made a adgile right turn and dropped altitude dimming just before a very ominious yellow and orange flame appeared engulfing the bell shaped object ....

At this very moment the bright yellow and orange flames and the craft dissapeared ...

Immediately i was checking N.W.S to check for weather anomallies dew points and cloud cover ....

The 3 of us were very perplexed about what we had witnessed !!!! Myself ive been in aviation for 8 +years ..... Out of 54 years of life ,,, and 4 years US airforce ,,, and 4 + years civilion aviation ,,,, this baffles me !!!!! at this point i can only hypothsize at the physics at hand ....

Iam very educated in aviation .... Ive had and seen / alot .... I personally knew Neil Armstrong ,,, I am willing to state for the record ,,,, this bell shaped craft was not of this world !!!! my personal belief is that when the craft burst into flames it was like it was entering a rift or porthole .... Because the craft and the flames seemed to have been pulled into window so to speak ,,, and the craft and the flames dissapeared so fast!!!!!


((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, on several occasions, and he seemed to us to be unusually sober-minded. We suspect that he is an excellent witness. PD))
