Recently, I've received a number of reports of new UFO sightings in Nevada. Specifically, around the small town of Rachel. If you're familiar with UFO lore, you'll know that Rachel is close to the infamous Area 51 and has it's fair share of strange events.
I'm currently following up on the new reports, but in the meantime, here's an account I received back in 2013 from the same area:
Yet another report of an unusual aerial object has come in from the region around Nevada's famous Area 51. The sighting below occurred on Wednesday, January 23rd near Rachel, Nevada. Rachel is home to the well known "Little A'Le'Inn", a virtual mecca for those interested in UFOs.
"I was traveling west and was not far outside of Rachel, Nevada. It was just after nine o'clock in the morning. I pulled off on the side of the road because my dog was whining and I needed to walk him. I had parked the car and walked him for a few minutes letting him take care of his business. As I was standing there, I noticed a shiny object in the sky. It looked fairly big and it seemed to be reflecting the sun. I thought at first it was an airplane and I kept watching it. It didn't seem to be moving much and the more I looked at it, the more I thought it was round. No airplanes that I know of are shaped
like that. As I stood looking at it, it suddenly shot off very fast, heading towards the east. I was speechless. I scanned the entire sky but I couldn't see any sign of the object anymore. The rest of my drive west, I kept watching the sky, expecting to see the object again but I never saw another sign of it. I'm sure it was no plane considering the rate at which it took off."
What's interesting about this account is that it sounds similar to a report listed in December with MUFON. That report from Alamo, Nevada also referred to a round or spherical object moving across the sky.
Are these reports evidence of some new technology being tested, perhaps a new advanced drone? Or are they something completely beyond our world?
With heightened activity in the area, hopefully more images or even video footage will come in that can be further analyzed.
