Investigators at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) have received a report claiming the aerial battle was witnessed by a man in Circleville, Ohio, on Monday evening. US-based MUFON is the world’s biggest organisation dedicated to UFO and alien research.
In a report to MUFON, the man, who has not been named, said he was being driven by his mother at 9pm local time when the events unfolded. He wrote: “I noticed a strange light appearing to hover in the distance.
“It was too big and bright to be a star, yet nothing like a plane.
“My initial thoughts were oh my God I’ve seen this in videos online – it’s a UFO.”
The witness in Ohio claimed UFOs were being attacked by planes.
“My face was boiling hot and my heart was racing as I observed the unbelievable events.”
He said the orbs went out of sight, and the pair stopped and got some food. He added: “We hit the road again. Just when I thought it was over, we spotted the same type of orb in front of the car.
“This time my mother could see it as well and noticed its odd qualities.
“It hovered for a short time, then slowly took a path heading north.
“Again, I saw commercial airplanes coming after the orb.
“My mother made me jump shouting, ‘woah! Did you see that? That thing just shot out super bright lights at once’.
“As the orb came closer, flying vertically over our vehicle, the big ball of light dimmed and I was able to make out a boomerang-shaped object that emitted the large and bright.
“Along with the unidentified flying object, the aeroplane and light shows vanished behind us.
“My mother and I made it home and we were still trying to figure out the cause.”
MUFON will look into the claims, but the organisation was previously said that it does receive several fictitious and hoax claims which are added to its database.
