A Michigan witness reports observing a bright, oval object over the Detroit River on February 3, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“There were no navigation lights and I didn’t hear any engine noise,” the witness stated. “I also looked up to see if there were any stars visible and I couldn’t see any. The strange light didn’t move, it just sat there and was very white with a silver edge on the right side. I still thought it might be an airplane, but I knew that airplanes don’t typically fly over that early. It looked like a sphere, but I could see that it was somewhat oval.”
The witness decided to take a couple of images of the object.
“It seemed that the brightness obscured the actual shape, the clearest view was on the right side of the light. I was so sleepy that I decided to take a couple photos of it and get back in the bed.”
