Memorial Day weekend brings more than just tourists to Maine, apparently we may have had some visitors from other planets as well.


At the end of May Mars and Saturn became visible in the night sky, so more people than normal had their eyes to the sky over the Memorial Day Weekend. Two star like objects moving in a straight line was reported over Rumford and a black triangle was reported over Belfast. Here are the reports as reported to

05/30/2016 11:40PM- Rumford, Maine

It was approximately 11:40 pm, Monday, May 30th, 2016, Memorial Day evening in Rumford, Maine. My boyfriend had taken out one of his telescopes to look at the stars, just outside our residence. When the sky is clear, stargazing is very good here. A few minutes had gone by and I went outside to join him in looking through the telescope. The evening was warm, approximately 66 degrees, damp and a bit humid as there was a light shower earlier. The stars were out, however, the sky wasn't at it's clearest & crispest for observing, but I could still see them distinctly enough for viewing with & without the telescope. There was hardly any cloud cover,maybe a little haze and the intensity of the stars was blocked by the street lamp shining accross the street. As my boyfriend was adjusting the telecope, I looked directly above me & I fixed my eyes upon a cluster of stars to the north/north east. Most of the stars in this group were distinct, but not overly bright, some small, far away, faded. However, there were two "white brighter stars" that stood out a bit more. I noticed that they both were moving toward each other, in a straight-line path, so that one was above & one was below, crossing paths & being in opposite directions of each other. (One went from the left to the right above or directly over the other going from the right to the left.) At least one of these white star-like objects appeared to have a faint trail behind it, but I'm not 100% sure. When they started moving, I was definitely doubting that they were stars at all, and certainly not shooting stars, because they were not moving that fast, but more on the slower side, that of the speed of a plane. The most unusual part of this all, is that when the white star-like objects crossed paths and went into opposition of each other, they slowed down and stopped. (I'm not sure about the distance they travelled, as they were way up high.) When they stopped, they both glowed white, the one that moved left to right, glowed a bit more than the other, & then they both faded, became stationary and dim like the rest of the other stars, as if these objects were "camoflauging" with the rest of their surroundings. This session lasted for about 30 seconds, and when they stopped moving & became stationary or "hovering", they didn't move at all from their positions while I was staring at them for at least a minute more. There was no sounds, no unusual shifts or crazy patterns of movement, however, I did find these white star-like objects unusual in themselves how they were presented, they surely stood out to me & made me question what they were about enough to make me at least want to report this incident. Psychologically, when I looked up, before I even saw the objects move, I was thinking to myself, "It would really be cool to see some more UFO's & of course, something strange had to happen!

I was observing Mars and Saturn through my binoculars when i noticed a pulse of white light just a bit a ways down and to the left from Saturn. At first i though it was simply a plane, but i continued watching. To my surprise i saw another flash of light, red (as expected) since i though it was a plane, only the light was way to the right from the initial flash. Then i saw another flash of light up above. The flashes of light appeared to be random, and i got the feeling they were outlining a large object. That can't be though, because this object would have had to have been extremely large, too large to be missed by observations from earth. These lights were not visible to the naked eye, but i could just make them out through the binoculars. I almost got the impression that the object may not even be in our atmosphere. Each flash seemed to be composed of 3 lights in a pyramid or diamond shape. Each flash was a singular color. Red, then white, then dark blue, but random. Could be 2 reds in a row followed by white, etc. I lost it for a few minutes, but was able to find it again farther to the left on the horizon. It was the second most strangest thing i have ever seen in my life. Either i witnessed the first mass supernova in history or something odd was flying about near earth.

Do you think it was the same thing seen two nights in a row? If a UFO flew over Rumford going East, maybe a little South East, the UFO would also go over Belfast. You never know! Did you see anything strange in the skies over the weekend?
