The UFO Traffic Report for Friday, July 24, 2009, includes nine selected sightings over eight states, according to witness statements filed in the past 48 hours with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

Just outside of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Fayette County, on July 10, 2009, there was a reported Bigfoot sighting. A team from the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society investigated, including Stan Gordon, Eric Altman, Dave Dragosin, and Dave's wife Cindy. The witness was driving when she swerved to avoid hitting a figure in the roadway, and she soon realized it was a "strange creature." You can read the incident report here. This piece of Pennsylvania has a long history in both UFO and Bigfoot creature sightings.

White House Press Secretary Gibbs fields a question on UFOs in this video recorded this morning on C-SPAN.

A Seattle caller asks the Obama White House for transparency in government to include making an announcement on the existence of UFOs.

Gibbs responds that he takes the caller's question seriously, but states that he has not been briefed by the president on the subject of UFOs.

Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If MUFON investigates and reports back on any of these cases, I will update this page. The following reports and their headlines are unedited. You can read my selected cases by type of UFO report at the UFO Traffic Report index page.

Indiana, June 21, 2009 - 3 white lights hover over field, move erratic and then are followed by choppers. MUFON Report # 18242.

This Tipton County, Indiana, witness saw " three white lights in a triangular pattern hovering just a few feet off of the ground over a field." He said he could see that the lights were attached to "a larger, triangular craft." The object moved slightly, then "shot straight up and away fast." The witness had been pulled off to the side of road watching for five minutes, but about two minutes after the object moved away, five helicopters - all with spotlights - "arrived at the area and went in the direction of the craft."

Indiana, July 18, 2009 - three red balls of light that were attached to a dark triangular craft. MUFON Case # 18241.

An Indiana witness driving just west of U.S. Route 31 near Sharpsville "noticed three red lights low in the sky appearing to hover about 10 to 15 feet above an open cornfield." The witness states that the lights were "all connected, attached to a larger, dark triangular shaped object." The witness watched for a period of time, but then continued to drive southbound away from the object.

Ohio, July 23, 2009 - two crafts two lights each. MUFON Case # 18274.

These Ohio witnesses watched what appeared to be two objects, each with two white lights, as they moved slowly across the sky. They kept the same distance between them as they moved.

Louisiana, June 5, 2009 - Three bright yellow lights in triangle formation moving in spiral across sky. The lights would disappear for a short time only to return in the same location approx. thirty minutes later. This continued for approx. 2 hours. MUFON Case # 18272.

Two ex-military friends visiting at Rosepine, Louisiana, observed that just below a 100-foot-tall pine tree "was a bright yellow light shining through." One of the witnesses said it appeared to be three bright yellow lights in a triangle formation. In a second round, they said the lights "seem to dip and bob, moving erratically." The lights then moved below the tree line and blinked out. Then a third group of lights appeared after 30 minutes and moved in the same manner. And when a fourth set of lights appeared, they realized they had been seeing these sets of lights over a two-hour period. The witnesses agree that they might have been watching flares, but one check with a friend who works at nearby Fort Polk said no aircraft had been in that area on that date dropping flares.

New York, July 11, 2009 - UFO spotted transfiguring over Brookhaven National Lab. MUFON Case # 18265.

Two friends at Longwood High School watched noticed an Orange Light in the sky that seemed to be about a mile away. The object "stopped in its upward path and morphed from a bright orb into a very sharp triangular object. When it had shifted from an orb to a triangle it let off a strong flash. Once done morphing it hovered in place for about a minute and then it headed flying over where me and my friend were. It passed directly over us!" The object was described as triangular in shape, with a "larger triangle in the middle and 3 triangles on the outside. The lights were a dim yellow and never blinked." The object then moved over them and "flew out of sight over the horizon."

Michigan, July 22, 2009 - Fireballs Over Higgins Lake in the Northern the Lower Peninsula Michigan. MUFON Case # 18263.

A family camping at South Higgins Lake State Park, south of Grayling, Michigan, watched approximately 8 fireballs move across the sky. The objects made no sound and "some seemed to move side to side while heading west. Three of the objects formed a triangle shape. They finally lost sight of the objects behind a tree line.

Kentucky, July 21, 2009 - fireball like, w/ blue halo, pulsing, slowly moving south then turn to west, under overcast sky. MUFON Case # 18255.

This Kentucky pilot and former aircraft owner saw what looked like "a ball of fire with a blue-ish pulsing halo." The witness said the object's surface "moved and swirled around giving the look of a fire but contained within the circular shape." He states that there were no navigation or landing lights, and no sound. The object was one-half the size of a dime held at arm's length. After about 30 seconds, the object appeared to come closer and then increased in size. The object then made a slow turn, moving west, then climbed into the cloud cover and faded from sight.

California, July 22, 2009 - A consistent , "Hum & Buzz", followed by a visual of a; "Metallic Sphere". MUFON Case # 18248.

A California woman preparing to leave for work heard an odd "hum" sound which continued for about 5 minutes while she was outside. A short while later, she left her home with two children in her vehicle, when she noticed at a distance in front of her "a stationary metallic sphere" in the sky. She observed the object for just a few moments before the roadway direction caused her to lose sight of it. She is now thinking that the two events may be connected.

Florida, July 22, 2009 - UFO was green and moved slowly with a few moments of hovering. No noise maybe a few hundred feet off the ground. MUFON Report # 18246.

A Palm Beach County resident whose front porch faces Lake Osborne noticed a green shining light behind some trees and was coming toward her. The object stopped moving and seemed to hover over John Prince Park campground. She said the object was shaped like a football "without the points at the end." The green light then seemed to get brighter. The woman was overcome with fear and went inside, although she did see the silent object one more time from a window, but when she looked again, "it was just gone."
