A group of Pacific, MO, witnesses report watching what looked like aircraft "shooting at" a group of about 20 UFOs moving overhead at 11 p.m. on May 7, 2011, according to May 9 testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
They first noticed the UFOs.
"We saw them fly in straight lines and would turn unlike any aircraft I have ever seen," the reporting witness stated. "They would be moving slow and then stop and then just dart. We also saw one fly right over our house, and when it got above us it glowed a bright white."
They also noticed what appeared to be conventional aircraft.
"We also saw some kind of aircraft chasing a few of them and even what looked like the aircraft was shooting at it. I saw flashes from the plane in the direction of the UFO. This lasted maybe 30 seconds, then the plane flew off. You could see the difference between the UFOs and the planes. We saw many of aircraft fly around the area for quite some time during and after the event."Pacific is a city in both Franklin and St. Louis counties, population 5,482. No images or videos were included with the MUFON report. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
Missouri is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a low number of UFO sightings nationally. Missouri had 6 UFO reports in April 2011 - while California had 46 sightings, the highest reporting state in the nation. Indiana is also on our Watch List.
