Two Cigar Shaped UFOs with Black Bands Over Michigan

The cigar-shaped UFO with a ‘black band’ at its center – illustrated here – has been reported several times recently. The cigar shape itself has been reported more frequently this year than in the recent past.

A Waterford, MI, witness reports watching two cigar-shaped objects with “a dark spot in the center” crossing the sky without sound that moved into a cloud “and never came out,” according to recent testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The “black band” on the cigar-shaped UFO has been reported in several other cases recently; and the cigar shape in particular has been reported more frequently this year than in the past several years.
The witness first thought the object was an airplane reflecting the sun.
“I looked directly at the object from its side, which was facing me to the east, as the object itself traveled in a northerly direction,” the witness stated. “From my standpoint, it became obvious that the craft had no wings, but at first appeared to be all white in a cigar shape with a dark spot in the center.”
The witness described the object.
“I could hear no noise from it that I could tell and I also noted that the dark spot toward the object’s center may have been due to a change or irregularity in the object’s shape and construction. Possibly this was an illusion created by the sun’s reflection off the object’s bright, white surface due to such a shape. The object held its course at a steady air speed and entered a large cloud.”

The object then flew into a cloud and disappeared.

“A couple minutes passed as I continued to observe the sky where it went into the cloud and the surrounding sky; and I just figured I better get back to work.”

Then a second object was seen moving along the same flight path.

“Because of the sun’s angle at this point, I could seemingly, more clearly, determine a much more definite shape to the object. It appeared to be like two swimming pool lane buoys attached one behind the other so that the object’s center between the two buoy-like sections of the object appeared defined. Still no sound and the object continued on the same flight path until it too entered the huge cloud formation and just never came out that I am aware of.”

The witness found a video from a previous UFO sighting that “seems to be precisely” what I witnessed – and you can link to that video here.

The MUFON report was filed on September 26, 2011. The events occurred on September 24, 2011. No images or videos were included with the report. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
