A Maryland witness reports watching and videotaping "seven orange lights hovering in the sky" on December 18, 2011, viewed from Quarterfield Road in Severn, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

"It looked like an upside-down cone with an orange, dim light coming out of the bottom of it, changing in brightness slightly every few seconds," the witness stated. "It stretched from the tree line to high in the air. It looked very similar to the Big Dipper (3-4 orange dots in a row, then 4 in a diamond shape)."

Then the arrangement of the lights changed.

"After a few minutes it slightly changed shape and was more in a line again. I kept driving and managed to get under it and it disappeared entirely until I drove back the other direction and they were visible again."

The witness was able to shoot a very short piece of video of the objects. The video is available on this page, or you can download it directly from MUFON.

"I drove down Telegraph Road and took a short video of it through the trees, then pulled down past Severn Run where it looked to be hovering over that general area with people standing in the field under it looking up at it. A few seconds after that it was gone again. I assume it passed over us like when I drove under it."

The witness also provided one image of the objects in the MUFON report, which was filed on December 18, 2011. Severn is in Anne Arundel County, MD, population 35,076. The above quotes were edited for clarity.

Maryland is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a low number of UFO sightings nationally. Maryland had 9 reports in November, the 21st highest reporting state - while California had 72 reports in November 2011 - the highest reporting state in the nation.

The above case links are the unedited and as yet uninvestigated reports filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Maryland MUFON State Director Don Borton investigates and reports back on these cases, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

MD, December 18, 2011 - 5-7 Cone-like orange lights hovering over seven Maryland in a line. MUFON Case 34203.

I was driving on Quarterfield road in Severn Maryland when I noticed on my left about 7 orange lights hovering in the sky. It looked like an upside-down cone with an orange dim light coming out of the bottom of it, changing in brightness slightly every few seconds. It stretched from the tree line to high in the air. It looked very similar to the big dipper. (3-4 orange dots in a row then 4 in a diamond shape) After a few minutes it slightly changed shape and was more in a line again. I kept driving and managed to get under it and it disappeared entirely until I drove back the other direction and they were visible again. I drove down Telegraph road and took a short video of it through the trees, then pulled down past Severn Run where it looked to be hovering over that general area with people standing in the field under it looking up at it. A few seconds after that it was gone again. (I assume it passed over us like when I drove under it)
