An unusual report out of Waltonville, Illinois – will be interesting to see if anything comes out of this. A group of men were fishing outside of the small town of Waltonville in southern Illinois on August 23, 2014, when they spotted a huge object flying across the night sky. The object was described as being at least ½ mile long or longer, with a slight glow to it. According to one of the men:
“It reminded me of some of the giant ships in the Star Wars movies… I was amazed at the experience.”
The men tracked the object northward until it disappeared from sight. One man submitted a crude drawing of the airship which showed the object to be rectangular shaped with a pointed front end. Illinois MUFON is investigating the report.
Waltonville is a tiny village in Jefferson County, Illinois, population 422. Illinois has a current UFO Alert Rating of 4 with a higher-than-average number of recent reports nationally.
