An unnamed witness at Titusville in Florida reported seeing an oval-shaped flying across the sky shrouded in what she described a bright, meteor-like light while waiting for the launch of an Atlas V rocket. The report is filed in Case 81674 in the witness reporting database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
According to the report, the strange event took place on January 19, 2017, at around 8 in the evening. The reporting witness, together with her husband, was in the viewing bleachers for the Atlas V rocket launch, which carries a missile-detecting satellite.
The witness said that it came to her mind that UFOs sometimes show in launches, so she decided to look at the sky while standing in the bleachers. She looked towards the east when she spotted nearby a brilliant, yellow-green, wide light. She yelled to call the attention of some other people sitting in the bleachers, but the UFO was so fast that many had missed it. She said that the woman behind her thought it was just a meteor. However, she was convinced there was something in it.
Just before the streak of light disappeared, the reporting witness claimed she saw part of something metallic with a seam and shape that was rounded. However, she only observed a small part of the object as the yellow/green light obscured most areas.
The launch was canceled because of a wayward aircraft in the rocket’s flight path. They all got on the buses and left, but she was still filled with excitement as she believed she had a UFO sighting. She reportedly checked the internet and could not find any record of a meteor when she noticed the UFO.
