Alamo, Nevada UFO Sighting
There seems to be some interesting activity in the Nevada skies around Area 51 in recent months. My last post detailed a report I received from Janet, a woman who witnessed a UFO in the sky between Alamo and Rachel in late December.
MUFON also received a report in late December, filed by investigator Darren Perks. The sighting occurred on September 29, 2012. Here's the unedited field report filed by Darren:
"A contact of mine who is a local resident of Alamo, Nevada was walking near to the Windmill Ranch Hotel just outside Alamo when he spotted this sphere moving towards the west and the mountain range which you can see in the picture. Behind the mountains is Area 51 and on this particular day there had been no aircraft activity out of Nellis AFB or Groom Lake. The sun was behind the person who took this picture and you can clearly see this from the shadows on the ground in the picture. The contact had forgotten this image until he recently went through some old SD memory cards and came across it just before Christmas. He contacted me immediately and we cannot find any conventional explanation for this sphere. He does recall seeing flashes in the sky which were also witnessed by staff from the hotel, in total 3 other persons. He cannot find any conventional explantion for this sphere and satelites and astronomical objects have been ruled out. The contact has asked me to share this image and I will respect their wishes by not naming them. None the less this is certainly a decent image and one that should certianly be shared with the public. Darren Perks UFO Investigator www.ufoshropshire.co.uk"
Just a note on detail, there is no "Windmill Ranch Hotel". There is a Windmill Ridge Restaurant and Lodge just outside of Alamo and this is clearly what the witness is referring to. I find it odd that a local would make such a mistake so perhaps the person is not actually a resident of Alamo.
The report is easy enough to follow up on since there's a mention of 'staff from the hotel' also witnessing the object. I'm in the area often enough to know some of the staff at the Windmill Ridge, so hopefully they can shed some further light on this sighting.
What's especially interesting about this incident is that it mentions a 'sphere shaped' object. This is the same type of craft reported by Janet during her December encounter. There's apparently a third sighting of a sphere shaped UFO in the same time frame which I'm attempting to get more details on.
