Roswell witness spots small 'metallic' UFO above Main Street
examiner ^ | March 2 | Roger Marsh

Posted on 03/03/2010 1:23:57 PM PST by JoeProBono

A Roswell, New Mexico witness walking along Main Street February 13 at 5:30 p.m. reports a small "greyish, metallic, luminum" object bobbing across the sky, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

The witness took two photos of the object and is asking for ideas on what it was.

"I was walking along Main Road, Roswell, on my way to find some dinner. I was walking in the direction away from the heart of Roswell.

At approximately 5.30pm I saw an object travelling through the sky which at first I thought to be a balloon. It seemed to be as small or maybe a touch bigger than a ballon but as it came nearer I noticed it was not a balloon.

It appeared greyish/metallic/aluminum in colour and travelled at a good speed in a straight line though with a bobbing/rocking motion.

I took two photographs with my camera on full zoom. The camera is a Canon PowerShot S200. I could only take two quick snaps as my battery had died and I did not have a charger. Any idea what this could be?"

Sensor probe from the mothership. Responding to the distress call sent out a few decades ago from the Roswell area.

Was there a small boy hanging from a basket as well?

I always walk around town with my Canon PowerShot S200 at the ready.

I hope there wasn’t a small boy inside the object.

We have achieved our goal.

Our spaceships can now parade openly above the skies of North America, and not a single person will believe what they have seen.

Thank You , humans.

Amazing how that *always* seems to happen before more definitive evidence could be gained...

Maybe the UFO's electromagnetic field knocked out the guy's battery??

Why are these things never clear?

It's in the MUFON rule book for submitting UFO photos.

"Images must be taken with hand held point and shoot cameras set to slowest possible shutter speed and image resolution while using the highest ISO setting available and digital zoom for maximum blur, pixelation and noise in the image."

What in the hell is THAT!

I’m thinking.......

1: Yamaka,
2: Older, mature Negroid features,
3: High wire walker like a Vegas act.

A tribute to Sammy Davis Jr. ?

The old, “my battery died....” excuse.

Looks like a stone you use on the bottom of flower pots.

IIRC, lots of folks refer to them as surveillance probes or orbs.
