November 17, 2012-Cigar Shaped Object Seen in Cambria County, PA.
From Researcher: Jim Brown, Independent Research Associate
Date; Saturday 17, November, 2012 Time approx 3:45 PM
Sky conditions were clear, light breeze, Temp about 40 degrees F.
The witness was outside working in the yard near his garage. He noticed a dark object moving from the south-west tree line coming toward him, moving northeast. It appeared as a cigar shaped shadow, dark in color, no detail could be seen. He watched it for about 20 – 30 seconds until it was directly overhead. At that point it appeared more football shaped, possibly due to parallax as the viewing angle changed. He estimates it to be approx. 500 – 1000 feet overhead.
For size comparison he states it was about the size of a dime held at arm’s length. At the point when it was overhead he blacked out. He does not recall any discomfort he just remembers finding himself lying on the ground. When he looked up the object was still visible, continuing to move slowly to the northeast. It was about 45 degrees above the horizon at this point moving away from him.
When asked about any recollection of other details he could remember nothing. He had no other physical effects of note. He could recall thefootball game on the radio he had in the garage had ended and the post game show was on when he first saw the object. The post game show was still in progress when he woke. The station was contacted and I verified the time frame of the show segment. From this it was concluded that the time period he was blacked out was short, likely no more than a couple minutes at most.
This was also used as the basis for the time of sighting as he did not have a watch or clock available outside. He does not recall the object stopping at any point, thus if we assume it continued its steady motion overhead, the time frame he was out would be a matter of only 10 – 15 seconds. This however is supposition as he cannot relate what happened while he was down. After regaining his composure and getting up he went into the house and sat down for a while. He said he didn’t experience any lasting effects from the event, He debated reporting it until Tuesday when he did a search online for UFO investigators and came to my website. I will remain in contact with him in case new developments occur. Follow up contacts with weather and other authorities revealed no other reports or explanation for this object to date.
