A West Virginia witness at Ghent reported watching a low altitude light âwith no sound or trail behind itâ moving overhead about 6:20 p.m. on November 3, 2014, according to testimony in Case 61183 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving northbound along I-77 and had âjust topped Flat Top Mountainâ on a clear night when two airplanes were spotted moving due east.
âAs I was watching the planes, at a much lower altitude a light appeared and grew brighter and once it got to its brightest, it sped east with no sound or trail behind it,â the witness stated. âThis all happened in a span of 7 to 10 seconds.â
After the object disappeared from view the planes could still be seen traveling east.
âNot sure what it was I saw, but as soon as I walked in the house I asked my family if they heard a sonic boom or anything loud. They said they heard nothing nor saw anything from home.â
Ghent is located in Raleigh County, West Virginia, population 457.
