It refers to the wreckage that many people were sure was a crashed UFO, however, the US government announced against it and the matter closed this way.

If you are a curious soul, UFODaily is the right place to cater to your needs. Read on to find about 5 intriguing UFO sightings that are credible enough to believe in. 

  • The city of Rendlesham Forest, 1980

It is no surprise that people in the 90’s also believed in UFOs. Rendlesham forest which lies about 100 miles from London was reported to see strange lights. It was no common man who reported this, rather the British air force unit.

 A laborer who went to the forest that night claimed to see a spaceship lying there. The next morning the spaceship was not seen, however, damaged trees and higher radiation levels further strengthened the sighting claim. 

The investigations went on for a long time, after which the UK defense industry closed the case saying that it did not pose any threat to the country. The people still believe it to be a UFO. Hence, a memorial trail was also built in the forest to remember the incident. 

  • New Jersey Turnpike, 2001

On 14 July 2001; after midnight almost the whole highway between New York and New Jersey stopped on the tracks to witness an array of beautiful, strange, yellow lights in the sky.

The V-shaped lights were unlike any other human lights and screamed unusualness through their demeanor. Daniel Tarrant, the Carteret Police Department Lieutenant was also one of the witnesses along with many others. 

Do you want to know what the outcome was? UFO Daily is here to spill all the beans! The national air traffic controllers did not find anything, but there was something that was caught. The NY-SPI found readings on their radar that matched those of a UFO.

  • Encounter with the USS Nimitz, 2004

USS Princeton, a part of the USS Nimitz carrier strike group went after tracking objects that appeared 80,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. A strange craft was reported almost 100 miles off the coast of San Diego, that was not like any official aircraft. 

Two FA-18F jets were sent to have an up-close look and even go close to it. Upon reaching a considerable distance, an oval-shaped object was seen under disturbed waters. In a matter of a few moments, a Tic Tac-shaped object appeared from beneath the water.

The object was reported to have no wings, engine, or markings. What was it and how did it work without an engine is still unknown. What is known is the fact that it had an extremely fast speed, thrice that of the speed of sound.

  • Saucer at O’Hare International Airport (2006)

It was 7 November 2006 when flight no. 446 was ready to take off from O’Hare International Airport. Suddenly, one of the airline’s employees saw a craft-like object hovering over the gate. 

A few hours later, on the same day, another saucer-shaped object was seen by a lot of employees and passengers alike. The craft hovered around in thin air for almost 5 minutes after which it shot up to the sky making a big hole. 

This was an extremely clear indication of the presence of an unidentified object. However, due to the unavailability of the object on the radar, it was not investigated further and the case was closed.

  • East Coast GO FAST Video

There have been many reports of UFO sightings after 2015. However, none of them are as credible as the 2015 East Coast GO FAST Video. What makes it a worthy addition to the UFO Daily list is its visual representation in a video.

The video showed an encounter between a F/A-18 super hornet and an oval unidentified object. The craft, which was spotted on an ATFLIR Pod, was identical to the one spotted off in San Diego in 2004: a fast-moving white sphere about 45 feet in length without wings or an exhaust plume.

The unidentified object was without wings, engine, or marks; just like the one spotted in 2004. The pilots tried chasing it but it flew off swiftly while also rotating on its axis. 


There have been countless reports of such sightings. The ones compiled in our UFO Daily list are those that have several witnesses. These happenings gained a lot of attention. However, there might be so many more such sightings that go by unnoticed. One thing is confirmed. The interest of people from UFO sightings is not going anywhere soon.
