UFOs in West Virginia: 10 witnesses, 4 low-flying UFOs, 3 big as football fields


A UFO sighting in southern West Virginia has been reported that not only presents multiple witnesses of the objects in question but also the witnessing of multiple unidentified flying objects during the sighting. Open Minds reported Oct. 17 that ten men working at a coal plant in Marmet, West Virginia, saw the four flying objects as a collective. Three of the UFOs were massive, the size of football fields. They were all flying extremely low to the ground -- and deathly silent.

Originally reported on the Mutual UFO Network website, the actual sighting took place at 10 p.m. on October 12, 2014. It was quiet all around, according to the reporting witness. The plant had shut down. The guys had just finished some pipe repairs and were leaning against their vehicles.

Witness descriptions sound similar to the Phoenix Lights of 1997, which I saw. In that case, the lights were generally attributed to flares deployed by the U.S. Air Force for a training exercise.

The Examiner is essentially a compilation of blogs, and not subject to traditional journalistic standards. Anyone can create an article. It's not really a trustworthy news source.

The idea of UFOs (as being something other than terrestrial in origin) is entirely fascinating to me. It's a shame, though, that despite all of the "sightings" there's no verifiable evidence that they represent something that isn't top-secret technology, or the result of as-yet-unexplained natural phenomena. Then again, if these are the result really weird nature, that'd be pretty interesting, too.

I, too, am enchanted by the fantasy, but if I were wagering real money I'd bet on optical illusion nine times out of ten, and bizarre, but totally terrestrial explanations the tenth.

What you all saw was ball lightning striking a weather balloon reflecting off swamp gas ignited by a meteor shower.

Now please stand still while I take your picture for our archives.

If so many people saw these alleged UFOs, why aren't there any photos or videos? Did not one of the 10 witnesses have a cell phone handy?

Don't get me wrong, I too am fascinated by the phenomenon, and WANT to believe. I just wish there was some kind of evidence presented.

I see a real YouTube video there, that I'm going to call as some form of VFX. The burden of proof is on those who claim it is a real UFO to substantiate that claim—which, just for starters given the whole lot of nothing in the description, is unsubstantiated.

Once you call it a UFO it becomes an IFO...
