Nevada witness captures sphere UFO moving toward Area 51

Primary tabs

Roger Marsh's picture
A witness in Alamo, NV, snapped this image of a sphere moving west toward Area 51 on September 29, 2012, a report that was recently filed with MUFON.

British UFO Investigator Darren Perks filed a report December 30, 2012, with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for a contact in Alamo, NV, who took a photograph of an unusual "sphere moving towards the west."

The witness was walking near the Windmill Ranch Hotel just outside Alamo when the sphere was first seen.

"Behind the mountains is Area 51 and on this particular day there had been no aircraft activity out of Nellis AFB or Groom Lake," Perks stated. "The sun was behind the person who took this picture and you can clearly see this from the shadows on the ground in the picture."

The image was taken on September 29, 2012.

"The contact had forgotten this image until he recently went through some old SD memory cards and came across it just before Christmas. He contacted me immediately and we cannot find any conventional explanation for this sphere."

The witness and three others saw flashes in the sky that day.

"He does recall seeing flashes in the sky which were also witnessed by staff from the hotel, in total three other persons. He cannot find any conventional explanation for this sphere and satellites and astronomical objects have been ruled out. The contact has asked me to share this image and I will respect their wishes by not naming them. None the less, this is certainly a decent image and one that should certainly be shared with the public."

The above quotes were edited for clarity. Alamo is an unincorporated community in Lincoln County, NV.

Nevada is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a low number of UFO sightings nationally. West Nevada had 7 reports in November 2012 - the 21st highest reporting state while California had 53 reports - the highest reporting state in the nation.

You can read more details about other recently reported cases at the UFO Examiner home page.

The following is the unedited report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Nevada MUFON State Director Marie C. Malzahn investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

September 29, 2012, 2:10 p.m., Alamo, NV. Unusual Bright Sphere Over Desert Near To Area 51. Case 44854.

A contact of mine who is a local resident of Alamo, Nevada was walking near to the Windmill Ranch Hotel just outside Alamo when he spotted this sphere moving towards the west and the mountain range which you can see in the picture. Behind the mountains is Area 51 and on this particular day there had been no aircraft activity out of Nellis AFB or Groom Lake. The sun was behind the person who took this picture and you can clearly see this from the shadows on the ground in the picture. The contact had forgotten this image until he recently went through some old SD memory cards and came across it just before Christmas. He contacted me immediately and we cannot find any conventional explanation for this sphere. He does recall seeing flashes in the sky which were also witnessed by staff from the hotel, in total 3 other persons. He cannot find any conventional explantion for this sphere and satelites and astronomical objects have been ruled out. The contact has asked me to share this image and I will respect their wishes by not naming them. None the less this is certainly a decent image and one that should certianly be shared with the public.
