Large Unknown Craft Hovers Over Southampton Several Orbs Followed

A Massachusetts witness reports watching a “large craft with red and blue-ish lights hovering over a field on Pleasant Street” in Southampton and then being followed by one of several orbs that straddled the object, according to May 17, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness drove into Southampton along Route 10 and first noticed two orbs in the sky moving “in unison with each other”.

“On Route 10 where Pomery Meadow Road meets, I first noticed a pair of ‘orbs’ flying in the same direction (towards Westfield) in unison with each other, lost them over some trees, got to my brother/parents house, dropped him off,” the witness stated.

The witness then left Route 10, turning right onto Clark Street in Southampton, and then made a right turn onto East Street.

“Then I noticed a large craft with red and blue-ish lights hovering over a field on Pleasant Street. So I took that left. I was amazed. It was making a not too loud humming noise. I kept driving because I admit, I was kinda freaked out. This is my first ‘UFO’ sighting.”

But the encounter was not over. The witness then noticed that one of the smaller orbs seemed to be following.

“As I kept driving I saw the same ‘orbs’ as before, at least, I think they were the same ones. I slowed down to get a better look, as one of them seemed to be tailing me. Every time I looked out my driver side window, it was right beside me probably a couple hundred yards away. It stayed with my until I reached the center of Easthampton. I then lost it.”

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on May 17, 2011. The event occurred on May 11, 2011, beginning about 10:20 p.m. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Southampton is a town in Hampshire County, MA, population 5,387.
