Back in November 2013, Portland, OR, area resident JP sent an interesting UFO story into MUFON. This is a good example of how bizarre UFO events can sometimes get. Most UFO reports are about one or two or three craft-like or luminous objects of medium to large size that maneuver around in the sky. But some reports are truly odd, so much so that we UFO investigators are unsure how to categorize the phenomena reported.  

Sometimes, UFO reports, when carefully analyzed, reveal paranormal phenomena such as telepathy, apparent OOBE experiences, lights that apparently defy the known laws and effects of light, "right angle" maneuvers of apparently massive objects, etc. My belief is that UFO experiences are shot through and through with paranormal world phenomena, and this can vary from almost completely this world effects to almost completely "other world" (transpersonal world) effects and anywhere along that continuum. See what you think. Where along the reality continuum does this report lie? See Paranormal World on this site for more information about the paranormal connection to UFOs.

Here are JP's words in her initial report:

A few weeks ago [in October 2013], I started witnessing small UFO crafts flying in a similar path every night, one after the other, for about four hours from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, when I go outside to look when the night skies are clear. The crafts descend into the trees across the street along the branches and change into small blinking orb like lights. The small blinking lights also resemble stars as well. Sometimes the crafts move back and forth between the trees and get very bright like a huge star. Most of the time the lights blink off and on and sometimes disappear before my eyes.

I do not see them during the day, and so I am not sure if they remain in the same place. My mother and my brother have both witnessed the lights as well. I do not want to sound paranoid, but at times I feel the lights play hide and seek, and move behind the branches to hide. Sometimes I feel like they are watching us. There are more lights coming every night, and lately the lights stay hidden more than they make themselves noticeable.

I just want to know what the lights are, and if anyone else is seeing anything like this too?

JP and I would like to know if anyone reading this has had a similar experience.  Please report it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have.
