A few recent (April 2010) reports from Mufon

Some interesting similarities with the drones.

New Lenox, IL (4-10-2010)
UFO Over New Lenox
April 10, 2010 | 08:12 PM

Whilst driving home on Saturday evening (4/10/2010) with my wife after Grocery Shopping, we saw a very strange flying object in the night sky at 8:35pm. At first it appeared to be the bright light of a plane or helecopter but then as it neared there was a 'funnel' shaped array of flashing lights emminating from the center of the large bright light in an upwards direction. As it passed overhead at a relatively slow speed it appeared that the funnel shaped lights were engulfing the large bright light and were much bigger in diameter.

I turned into a side street to watch the object disappear to the south west. I heard no sound at all coming from the object.

Anybody got any ideas as to what we saw?

By the way we had not been shopping for booze!!
A followup to this report contains pictures that are difficult to interpret.

Liberty, MO (4-2-2010)
Double-oval object over Liberty, MO
I was driving Northwest on 291 Hwy when I noticed a white shiny object moving slowly across the sky. At first I thought it was a large plane, but it had no wings or tail. It looked like two oval-shaped objects with a piece connecting them in the center. As I watched, it stopped and went backwasrds, then forward again very quickly, then continued on its slow forward movement. This happened again, then I lost sight of it because I had to turn left at a light. I pulled over to the side of the road to see if I could find it again, but it was gone. Due to the fast jerky movements backward, then forward again, this could not have been a plane or helicopter. It moved too fast for that. The object was headed in an East-West direction at 40 degrees off the horizon. It looked very large. The sky was clear with no overcast.

IL (3-17-2010)
Saw a disc shaped object in the sky to my left while in my car backing out of the driveway.
I was off of work from Tuesday through Friday this week taking care of my son who had a mild case of the chicken pox. My wife whom works from home had asked me on this day to go pick up some lunch. It was a nice sunny day and not too cloudy. I walked outside and got in my car. When I was backing out of the driveway I naturally looked back to my right and left to make sure no cars were coming. I don't remember looking to the right, but I know prior to reaching the curb, there was an object I saw out of my left drivers side window that caught my eye. So, I stopped the car (still in the driveway) to observe the object briefly. It was moving North, the same direction that I was backing out of the driveway prevoiusly. It then stopped completely and suddenly and headed South. I had only seen the object long enough at this point (3-4 secs) to know that it was definitely heading North. When it moved South it headed in that direction for only about 2-3 seconds. This is when I stepped out of my car to view the object. It then went back to the North, changing direction again for a few more seconds. Then appeared to do a two circles and then headed Southwest flying in my direction but angled slightly to the South directly towards the Sun.

By now I had been watching the object for around 15 seconds or so. When it started in my direction I then had the best look at the object as it was getting closer to me. It was shaped like a saucer. The color was sort of a light brownish color with a red tint. The bottom of the craft seemed to have more of the red tint then the rest of it did, but was much darken in color than the rest of it. It was flying probably 50ft lower than most airplanes I see around my house with the exception of the really high planes I see that leave the white smoke trail behind them. I did not see any features on the object like lights or windows or anything like that. It was just sort of a grainy techture. One thing that struck me as being very strange as I was observing the object or craft, it seemed at times to almost fade away and almost be transparent, but not completely, and then it would be completly visable again. It did this two times after it headed in my direction. As it came closer and closer to me I started to lose sight of it in the Sunlight as it was headed straight in that direction. The craft was close enough to me that I should have heard some sound from it but I could not hear any noise at all. It was totally silent. I lost sight of it when it flew under the Sun. I stayed in my driveway another 10 minutes or so looking for it. I should have seen it once it was out of the Sunlight but it was just gone. Like it disappeared. I did not see it again.
