Earlier this week, witnesses in Martinsville, Indiana say they watched a saucer-shaped object hovering about 1,000 feet away from a nearby tree line. According to a report filed with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), witnesses first saw lights shaped in a V-formation off in the distance while on their way home from Walmart.

"We were heading east on Old Morgantown Road," said one witness. "We went around a curve and up a hill. As we reached the top of the hill we saw five lights in a slight V-formation. We all commented on how low this apparent plane was."

However, as the spotters got closer to the mysterious lights, they quickly recognized that they were in the presence of something far greater than an airplane.

"The lights appeared bright white as we approached. We drove forward about half a mile. We were directly in front of the object. The object was at the tree line and about 1,000 feet away. The lights were now huge, orangish, red swirling spheres. They remained in the same formation, only now I could see clearly the shape of an object. The part I could see was saucer-shaped. The lights were lights on this craft."

One witness attempted to document the sighting using a cell phone camera, but was not quick enough to capture any footage. "Before I could even touch the screen, the lights went off and it was gone. I got into the car and everyone was yelling, 'It was a UFO.'"

Witnesses say they spotted the object once more about 10 to 20 miles away from their home. A MUFON report was filed on Friday, January 25, 2013. Unfortunately, though, there were no photos or videos included in the report.
