A jet passenger spotted cylinder-shaped UFO at an altitude below the jet’s 37,000 feet while flying between Florida and Puerto Rico, according to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Case 56602.
The strange event happened at 11:15 a.m. on March 12, 2014, and it was reported to MUFON on May 25, 2014. Ohio MUFON State Director Thomas Wertman investigated the case and closed it as unknown.
According to the report, the witness was in a passenger jet flying to Puerto Rico on Jet Blue Flight #1938. The plane departed at 10:15 a.m. in Orlando, FL, and was expected to arrive at 12:59 p.m. The UFO was spotted in the north of Mona Passage, approximately 45 minutes before landing.
The unnamed witness and his daughters noticed and observed the mysterious flying object. He revealed that other people in the jet also observed the anomaly as others even commenting about it. They saw the object hovered, which was very strange.
After their arrival, the reporting witness checked online to know if there were reports about visible stars or satellite at the same time of their UFO sighting. However, his research revealed nothing. The video shows round top and bottom of the object. It’s difficult to tell the size of the subject matter since there’s no solid background object to compare. The silver or metallic UFO seems to expand and contract.
MUFON Ohio Director Wertman said that the reporting witness used a Kodak C813 digital camera. It was taken on March 22, 2014, at 11:22 a.m. based on the camera’s date and time. The flight details were taken from the Flightaware website.
On Wertman’s investigation, the arrival of the aircraft wasn’t at 12.59 p.m., but at 12:37 p.m. The passenger plane would have been off the Turks Islands if the approximate time of the witness was correct. Wertman said that the estimate of 45 minutes by the witness appeared not right. The camera’s time of 11:22 p.m. put the jet near San Salvador, explained Wertman.
The witness can be seen in the video pointing at the object. Wertman stated that the object didn’t appear to be a reflection of the window. The UFO doesn’t move consistently with the camera movements. The witness also seems to point down at the object.
Based on the flight path, the aircraft was traveling at 37,000 feet, according to Wertman. Based on the video and report, the object appeared below the jet’s altitude. The UFO seems to be stationary and highly reflective.
The investigator said that the combination of the data from Flightaware and the video was inconclusive on identifying the unusual object.
