To whom this concerns, I’m submitting this report to your organization to hopefully gain a better explanation of what we possibly saw during that night. I initially submitted a report to MUFON on July 4th, 2013, and I was shortly contacted by a MUFON investigator to come and visit our home. Sometime after he was suppose to come I had one occurrence late one evening with a helicopter which overflew my home under 500 feet and maybe 40-60 knots of airspeed. First time was with a searchlight and second time which occurred within 10 minutes roughly; it was blacked out with just one red strobe on the tail.

I did write this MUFON investigator and informed him about it, and he’d seemed intrigued. Well, long story short he never did come and never contacted me again. I followed up this previous December about why did he never follow up with me. Real quickly, the reason I waited so long was because I thought maybe this guy thinks I’m full of s@#$ and I didn’t want to be too persistent to possibly make him think i’m overbearing.

So I got a response to my concerns about why I was never contacted from the state director of MUFON from NC. It seems that the initial investigator fell very ill, and then my case got pawn off and they explained that it was a very rare meteorological event that we witnessed. Overall I have a gut feeling that there is something strange about this event. Any info would be great.

Here is the Original report, “My wife and me were outside on the deck watching the thunderstorm approach from the southwest when out of no where a reddish orange fog or cloud appeared. It started out dull in brightness but soon got brighter and brighter and was in my opinion roughly 10 to 15 miles away. As it was becoming brighter it was making its way towards our direction from the southwest and the closes it came was roughly 1/4 of a mile from us. This event lasted roughly 10 minutes and it gave my wife and I a strong feeling of eeriness as it was making progress towards us and becoming bigger and bigger. The weird thing is we never saw a distinct detailed craft, we only saw a glowing fog or cloud that seemed to have intelligent control. This dense fog or cloud just dissipated after getting that close to us and it took roughly 2-3 seconds for it to disappear. If anything has any idea what this was please add on your opinion. Also there was no noise only a creepy feeling.”
