Red/White Light seen over field off of Praire Grove Dr. and Wingstem St. next to nearby Middle School

On June 25, 2018, at 2:36 AM., I received a FaceTime call from two of my friends. They immediately exclaimed that one of them had seen a UFO and that “they’re are aliens out here”. I told them to record it for me and to promise me that they were not lying or fabricating any details, my friend who is the one who witnessed it named, ((male name deleted)), claimed he was not lying and seemed anxious but ultimately agreed to record it.

Two minutes later at 2:38 AM, I received a Snapchat video of a bright red light with a white light in the center, which stood still. ((male name deleted)) recorded the footage in a secluded Walmart parking lot behind the store which was right next to the field where he claims the UFO was hovering. He claims that it would disappear and then reappear in the same spot but only did so once. The video shows ((male name deleted)) out of breath, saying “ - I’m alright” to the other person present who did not witness anything, before continuing to hyperventilate. The caption on the! Snapchat video said, “It moved after this bruh”. Although the 8 second video is short, it does show the unexplained light. Now I live near where the location that they are talking about and there are no cell towers in the area where the UFO was sighted, and that would give off such a light. He claims it was definitely not any commercial aircraft like an airplane or helicopter. The video depicts a bright red light with a white light in the center. Upon sending me this video, ((male name deleted)) claimed that when he looked back up it had disappeared without a trace, as if it had disappeared within the blink of an eye. No entities were seen despite the comment about aliens, that was just his belief as to the origins of the UFO. I screen recorded the video so that footage is in my possession. I told him I would go to the spot in case there was any trace evidence, but was unable to do so due to work. We haven’t received any storms, only intense heat from a recent heatwave that had struck the Midwest, but besides that there is no indication that any trace eviden ce would disappear as a result. I will update on any future findings, such as increased electromagnetic activity in the sighting location, along with any types of abnormal radiation that may have affected plant life or any animals. I am okay with my name being displayed as I encourage others to contact me about their sightings as well. ((male name deleted)) agrees to have his name displayed also. ((male name deleted)) was questioned about the encounter thoroughly and assisted me in the creation of this report. Anyone wishing to contact Colin or the other individual who had accompanied ((male name deleted)), can be contacted through me personally. - ((author's name deleted))
