A witness from Hutto in Williamson County, Texas, has reported sighting an orb UFO flying close to the ground and emitting a green light. According to the witness, the UFO flew close to the ground and moved to and fro over a grassy area as if it was scanning the ground searching for something.
According to the testimony filed as Case 72672 in the archives of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the encounter with a mysterious orb UFO occurred at about 8:14 a.m. local time on November 22, 2015, as the witness was driving into Hutto.
Open Minds-TV reports the witness told MUFON that as she drove into Hutto she “noticed a weird green light close to the open grass area and pulled to the side.”
She watched as an orb UFO hovered over an open grass area, moving to and fro close to the ground as if scanning the ground below in search for something.
“It was hovering [over the grassy area] as if looking for something.”
The mysterious silver-colored orb UFO had green lights and moved from side-to-side in the manner of a dog sniffing the ground in search for something, according to the witness. Then, suddenly, it turned off its green lights and zoomed off.
“It went side-to-side and then just zoomed off. This thing was very close to landing. It was just searching for something in the grass,” she said. “I have never in my life seen something like this. It was silver, but the lights were green. Not too far from the grass.”
The witness was scared by the sighting, saying she had never seen anything like the orb UFO in her life. It moved over the ground for about 30 seconds after the witnessed pulled over to observe, and just before it zoomed off into the sky she had feared it was approaching her car.
“I was so scared. I thought it would come close to my car,” she told MUFON. “This is something I will never forget. It kept going side-to-side looking and this went on for 20 or 30 seconds and then it just turned off the light and zoomed away straight forward as fast as it could.”
MUFON reports that representatives of the organization in Texas are investigating the baffling case.
The case is reminiscent of the famous UFO sighting on August 27, 1979 reported by Marshall County Sheriff’s Deputy Val Johnson. The sighting has defied naturalistic explanation despite being the subject of a lengthy official inquiry after Johnson reported his experience.
According to Deputy Johnson, he was on patrol in his squad car on a deserted rural road in Warren, Minnesota, early on the morning of August 27, 1979 when he spotted a bright, glowing orb about a foot in diameter flying close to the ground.
Baffled by the unfamiliar sight, the deputy apparently slowed down or pulled over to observe the UFO. But the UFO veered unexpectedly and zoomed towards his car.
Some say the UFO shot an energy beam at the deputy’s car. Others say the UFO collided with the car. The deputy was uncertain what actually happened, but he recalls that before passing out he was engulfed in a blinding flash of light.
He was treated at the hospital for burns to the eyes that doctors compared to burns due to the brightness of flames from a welder’s equipment.
Given that Johnson’s UFO and the Hutto UFO were orbs or sphere UFOs flying close to the ground, UFO enthusiasts may want to speculate whether both UFOs were related.
But orb UFOs are by far the most commonly reported by UFO witnesses. This has caused some UFO enthusiasts to suggest that alien surveillance crafts are generally orb-shaped.
