Possible Alien Sighting/UFOs in Portland, Maine - 08-12-07

Reader Submits Maine Sighting


Updated October 28, 2012

There are two very well-known UFO cases from the state of Maine; 1968 - The Tote Road, Maine Sightings, and 1976 - The Allagash Alien Abduction. Now, let's check out this reader-submitted report.

My sister and I were walking back into town after some of our plans fell through. We walked about five miles from the city we live near, and it was around 12:30 AM when we started the journey back.

Around 1:15 we were walking through a park, no lamps were turned on, and it was very dark. We had stopped briefly near the edge of the park so I could smoke a cigarette behind the building that faces the street.

We had been standing there no more than a couple of minutes when I looked up and saw what appeared to be the outline of a tall figure behind her. Its head was slowly moving down as I noticed it.

A Sense of Dread

I felt a sense of dread quickly set upon me and I yelled at my sister to run. We ran across the street, behind the school on the other side, through a turf field.

Once we were a considerable distance away we slowed down and I explained to her what I saw, at which point she said it was probably nothing, which I feel is possible.

We continued walking, taking all the back roads to avoid any cops. About 1/2 mile from our house my sister told me to look into the sky to observe some lights she had noticed.

What Were the Lights?

I dismissed her, and told her it was nothing but airplanes. But she argued about it, and so I looked. At a quick glance they could have easily have been mistaken for planes, but upon further looking I began to notice their odd behavior.

They were moving in sync with each other, one white light, and two red-orange lights. They were traveling in a straight line, the white light leading, and they were situated very close to each other.

About 15 seconds later the light in the rear disappeared, the one in front of it blinked on/off really fast, and then disappeared as well, leaving the one white light.

The one light traveled solo for about 20 seconds, when suddenly the two red-orange lights reappeared behind it, only now in the shape of a triangle, the white light on the tip leading them.

The lights continued on like that for half a minute before the two red-orange light moved back into the line formation behind the white light. At first they were spread out, and then they slowly started to move closer to each other.

Strange Lights Continue

Again the light in the rear disappeared, and the other red-orange object started to dim until it was gone, once again leaving the white light alone.

In less time than before, the red-orange light reappeared again in the triangle formation, before reforming the line, instead of disappearing the red-orange light was now alternating between the line formation and the triangle formation.

They continued this for about 15 minutes, when they neared the area in the sky where my sister first pointed them out to me; they stuck in the line formation, white light constantly in front of the others.

The light in the rear started to dim, until it was gone, the remaining red-orange light flew into the white one, which then exited the sky at a very rapid speed.

The times I put down are almost definitely off, because the entire time my sister and I were watching it, was like a dream. It wasn't until about 10 minutes afterwards that we started walking home again, and started talking about it.

We realized in talking about it that the UFOs circled the sky, almost as if they were mapping the landscape or something. I might have even dismissed the entire event as dream, due to it being so surreal had my sister not have recorded it on a cheap cell phone cam, the quality is so bad that it's not even worth showing.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer of MUFON Maine.
