Clinton Township, Michigan: Cigar shaped object following a storm cloud 19-Aug-2014

Cigar-shaped UFO

These photos of a cylindrical UFO were taken in the sky above Clinton Township in Michigan on Tuesday, 19th August 2014.

Witness report: I was taking pictures with my Nikon D3100 camera using a 18mm-55mm lens to capture lightning strikes from a storm that was heading over my residence. The storm came in from the west and was moving east/southeast and I had my camera on continuous shooting. A lightning bolt was discharged from the wall cloud. It is the only time a lightning bolt came from this cloud and within a few seconds after the bolt struct, I managed to capture 2 pictures of this object. After taking approximately 145 photos of this storm, I saw 2 pictures with a cigar shaped object following the south end of the wall cloud. I did not see this object at all while shooting them. It was only visible after I reviewed my photos on my computer.
The object was a dull gray/black, solid body, no lights or windows. There were NO wings, tail or protruding areas coming from this object. The ends are rounded and fits the cigar shape perfectly. It was approximately 30-50 ft in length (estimate) and about 700-900 ft high (again, estimate) and it followed in back of the main wall cloud that contained high winds and rain. It moved to the east, along with the storm. It had moved hundreds of feet in less than 4 seconds.
There were no airplanes or helicopters in this area mainly because of the storm that was approaching. The only noise that was heard was the storm itself. A few times my camera would NOT shoot to capture images. So gaps were as long as 5 seconds on some of the pictures. While most images of the storm and object were captured, fluently, I had to refocus a few times in order to get the camera to shoot some of the images (although no object was visible in those pictures).

I have included pictures of this object. Also sending the stretch between the first sighting of the object and a couple of in between pictures to show you a time sequence from the first picture of the craft to the last picture of it. Also included, are pictures of the readings on my camera at the time they were taken.

    excellent capture! i don’t know why ufos are always hiding in storms! don’t they know they can be seen anyways? do they think humans run and hide under their beds when storms happen??

  2. To the guy who always click the not alien button. Why are you so sure? Do you think there all ours?

    Anytime you folks find them sausage shaped ufo’s you got o’l freds attention.

  4. another type of unknown alien craft of unknown origin good pic in stormy conditions .

  5. I wonder if they can harness the incredible amount of energy created by thunderstorms?

    • Aliens can use magnetic energy which is far more abundant and infinite than what storm can give, human made crafts as the TR-3B are still running with nuclear energy because they can’t retro engineer technologies that far advanced.

      But alien crafts seem to have an interested for storms indeed, but i doubt it could be for energy purposes.

  6. Most Earth pilots go out of their way to avoid thunderstorms. All that super-charged, turbulent air is extremely dangerous. Yet these unidentified craft seem to thrive in those conditions.

  7. I have to throw this out there, just to offer another explanation. Storms can pack a lot of winds, it’s a possibility that this is something light in weight that was picked up by the storm, I know I certainly see things blowing around during storms. With that possibility out there, I just can’t say definitively that this is extraterrestrial. And I’m not the person who clicks “not alien” either, LOL
