It’s the second Thursday of the month, so this week I’m giving you an update on UFO reports in Alabama from the previous month, courtesy of the Mutual UFO Network.
A search for UFO reports in Alabama between April 1 and April 30 on MUFON’s website, www.mufon.com, resulted in four reports from within our state during that time.
The first incident was reported on Wed., April 1, by a witness in Albertville, which is in Marshall County. The witness in this case reported that for several months he has observed a “pulsating, color-changing object” in the night sky. The object moves in different directions and also appears and disappears. The object is bigger and brighter than a normal star, and it is visible every night, the witness reported.
The second incident occurred on Thurs., April 2, around 11 p.m. in Hazel Green, an unincorporated community in Madison County, near Huntsville. The witness in this case was about to go to bed when he looked out a window of his mobile home and saw unusual lights. At first, the witness thought the lights were stars, but they changed colors from white to red.
The witness said that initially he thought the objects were planes, but they didn’t move and pretty much remained in the same location in the sky. The witness “felt scared” at the time because seeing the object changed the way he thought about UFOs.
“I thought aliens existed but wasn't sure I would ever see them during my lifetime,” the witness reported.
The third incident occurred on Sat., April 4, at 9:08 p.m. in Jemison, a city in Chilton County. The witness in this case was in a vehicle with his wife and stepson when they pulled up to a four-way stop and saw a UFO in the night sky. The object “darted a great distance” then hovered.
The three witnesses watched the object for a few minutes. In the meantime, they arrived home and the husband went inside to get a pair of binoculars. By the time, he made it back outside, the UFO had disappeared. The husband watched the sky for another hour or so, but the object never returned.
The fourth incident occurred on Thurs., April 30, around 6:48 p.m. in Warrior, a city that’s in Jefferson and Blount counties. The witness in this case reported seeing an unusual object in the southern part of the sky and watched as it traveled north. Suddenly, the object stopped and appeared to hover in the sky, the witness said.
“I thought it was possibly the space station or a satellite until it became stationary,” the witness reported. The witness noted that he actually captured footage of the object on a digital video recorder and that footage shows the object’s position relative to the moon and what the witness believes is the visible planet Venus.
Before closing out this week, I just want to put it out there again that I would be very interested to hear from anyone who have witnessed a UFO, especially in Conecuh County. I think a lot of other people would be interested in hearing your story too, and I’m willing to accept your report anonymously. You can contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 578-1492.
