UFO sighting reported in Honesdale

April 10, 2013

An anonymous poster to a site that tracks sightings of UFOs reported a sighting ( in Honesdale on April 6. The post says, “My wife, daughter, and her friend had just got out of the car at WalMart in Honesdale around 10:10 p.m. They noticed flying orange lights coming from the south and watched them fly over towards the north. They first thought maybe airplanes, but there were no blinking lights or sounds. There were six objects, all colored orange, flying in a jagged line formation. The objects held this formation for the duration of the event until they lost sight of them, which was approximately five minutes.

“I am told that they were traveling fairly slowly but may have been high up. I pointed out how a jumbo jet appears to fly slow when it is at altitude and they agreed that these objects could have been moving faster than they realized if they were high enough up. Others in the parking lot observed the lights as well… maybe five or six other people.

“What made this even more strange was that a friend of mine that lives about 20 miles south of us posted on Facebook about seeing an orange ‘fireball’ in the sky pass over his house at approximately 9:45 p.m. on the same night.”
