A New York witness at Rome reported watching a UFO hovering at the treetop level that made no sound, according to testimony in Case 73684 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving home with his girlfriend about 8:30 p.m. on January 6, 2016, along Elmer Hill Road in Rome, NY, when the incident occurred.
“I saw what looked like an extremely low flying plane flying above the tree tops,” the witness stated.“It had three white lights on it and one red light underneath.”
As the witness moved closer to the object, he realized it was not moving – but was instead hovering.
“It literally turned towards us in the air and flew/hovered directly above us. It made absolutely no sound and turned on a dime. It was the size of a normal jet, but was flat rectangular/diamond shape with a dome on top. I only could see that because the UFO literally flew right above us. It was a pretty scary experience, and completely real. I’ve never seen anything like it and was completely amazed.”
The case was reported to MUFON on January 6, 2016, and is under investigation by New York MUFON Field Investigator Bob Kasseland Chief Investigator Nicholas Voulgaris. No images or videos were included with the report.
