Duration:5 minutes

On September 16, 2015, at approximately 8PM, in Tucson, Arizona, I saw a silent stationary UFO.

I was awake and sitting upright on a sofa. I had my eyes closed. Suddenly it appeared in the upper right field of my vision. I saw a gray disk with a plate-like central part on the undersurface. There was some type of inscription on this central part. No running lights.

But, an orange aura slowly formed starting at the outer border of the UFO. The orange aura slowly expanded for about six or seven seconds, held its position for a couple of seconds, then slowly regressed to the body of the UFO.

It repeated this orange aura expansion-regression process about ten times.

Then, the UFO disappeared.

My wife was nearby. I described this occurrence to her as it was actually happening. This is the only time I had this sighting. I don't drink or take drugs. My eyes were closed during this entire episode.

((NUFORC Note: Source of report describes himself as a retired military officer. PD))


Hello, I have not experienced any similar sensations regarding UFOs, but I've had many different synchronistic happenings which have astounded me. I narrated this one UFO phenomenon in real time to my wife as it was unfolding. My wife says she has never experienced anything that might be considered preternatural. I want to emphasize that in this UFO experience what I saw was a clearly-defined physical entity rather than the results of an eye pathology. The object I viewed from the underneath vantage had some type of scribbling in its central circular area. I have listened on Coast-to-Coast to your reports of physical sightings. I was somewhat hesitant to send you my report because I saw the object with my eyes closed.
Could it be that there is a psrapsychical dimension to my experience? I'm open to all possibilities...even way-out bizarre ones. Have you ever had anyone express to you anything like my experience?....
