An Iowa witness reports an orange light overhead while walking home in the dark on May 10, 2011, with flashing white, green and blue lights - and "white light flashing at the tip making out a cone shape," according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting network.
The panicked witness ran home, but then looked again for the object.
"Next to the flying object was another flashing light that was very still, but it had a very dim and thin ring around it," the witness stated.
The witness went inside to get a camera working, but returning outside the objects were gone.
No town name was mentioned in the public portion of the MUFON report, which was filed on May 11, 2011. No images or videos were included with the report.
