Warren County Ohio UFO Sighting

Warren County Ohio UFO Sighting

Date: April 25, 2001

Location: Waynesville, OH

Civilians and law enforcement officers in Warren County report a very strange object in the evening skies. A couple was the first to report a circular lighted object hovering silently. The big light of the UFO, pulsating or changing color and brightness, was encased within a structure that resembled grid work or cabling.

The couple advised the Lebanon City Police Department around 10:15 p.m. and the Warren County Communications Center dispatched a Waynesville police officer that confirmed the unidentifiable nature of the object and reported a second UFO in the area.

As other officers respond the dispatchers at the Warren County Communications Center telephone a base operator at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton and to Airborne Express at the Wilmington Airport in Clinton County. Both flight control facilities denied any knowledge of the UFOs.

While the Waynesville police officers view the object from Wilkerson Road, a police dispatcher also observed the same object from her position at the Warren County Communications Center. An officer with the Caesar's Creek State Police also notes the UFO from his location to the east of Waynesville.

A third UFO is sighted in the area during the event, and the police witnesses repeatedly affirm a cogent distinction between the suspected UFOs and routine stars and airplanes. The objects move off as other officers from the Ohio State Patrol arrive on the scene. The next evening, UFOs are again viewed from Wilkerson Road at 9:48 p.m., and also by officers near the Waynesville Airport.

Another unusual object is seen seven hours later that pursues a motorist near Genntown, OH, about 5 miles from Waynesville.

A female complainant advises the Ohio State Patrol of her extreme concern regarding a triangular object with super bright lights that pursued her automobile while travelling on Route 122 at 5:00 a.m. at April 26.

A transcipt of telephone calls, Numerous agencies were included, follows:

They're high up, they look like uh, they're up there but with our binoculars though, the ones he's got here, you can see them pretty clearly. There's probably five different colors, there's two of them and they've stayed in the exact same spot the whole time. They're not stars, I can tell you that.

Female Officer: This is 480-16, can we come back there with you? We are enroute and have spotted what you're talking about.

Local: Does the plane have flashing red lights?

Unit #2W30: now right behind that, or to the left of it a little bit, that's it.

Local: Would it be below the plane?

Unit #2W30: Well the plane is directly overhead of us now, so I can't really tell.

Local: Okay, I can tell the plane you are talking about but from up here I can't see anything else but a star.

Unit #2W30: You wouldn't believe it.

Local: Can you see that with your eyes or do you have to use binoculars to see it?

Unit #2W30: I can see the flashing and everything with my eyes, you get the binoculars and you can really see it.

Local: I think I know what you're talking about, I'm going to see if I can see it with my pair of binoculars.

Unit #2W30: It looks like an orange, kind of a blue, a purple and a red almost with a green.

Female Officer: Are you straight back toward the house?

Unit #2W30: Come all the way back here, way back on the right, you'll see us standing here on the wall.

Bill At Flight Control: Ah, no. Right now we don't have any aircraft over that way. We have them east of Wilmington so we don't have anything over that way.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Dispatch, Lori?

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Did you guys call anybody about the UFO?

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Who's this?

O.S.P. Dispatcher: State Patrol.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Yes we did.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Who'd you call?

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Airborne and Wright-Pat.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: I mean like UFO people?

WCCC Dispatcher #4: no.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: I'm embarrassed to call them.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Robert Fisse (sp?) the Park Ranger just called and said he can see them just fine. He said they appeared to be a great distance off but he could see them. He named the colors he could see.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Blue and green.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: And red and white.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: I guess I better call somebody then. Oh Lordy.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: All right. Bye.

***Further Observation***

Unit #2W30: They just contacted O.S.P. I guess and Wright Pat doesn't have anything in the area. I don't know, this is weird.

Unknown Officer: You got any tape on it?

Unit #2W30: I don't even want to say. It's definitely round. Did you copy that?

Unknown Officer: Yeah, we got it.

Unit #2W30: (laughing) Hey, I'm just telling you!

Unknown Officer: Yeah, they're definitely not moving.

Unit #2W30: Well, the one is now. It's moving farther and farther away well there it goes. It just stopped again.

Unknown Officer: I don't want to know.

Unit #2W30: Okay.

Unknown Officer: I was just up here at the office doing paperwork and I had to check on it.

Unit #2W30: No problem. I have 16-Robert-50 on local, ah, Paul Rohrer (sp?) just spotted one right above you. It's coming real close. (breaks into laughter)

Unknown Officer: Okay wonderful. Ah, all I got's a plane right up here that I can see.

Unit #2W30: It's a plane and then it's I don't know. I don't know. I thought I'd let you know.

Unknown Officer: I can still see the other two, but I don't see any third one.

Unit #2W30: This is actually coming from where you're at.

Unknown Officer: All right, I don't see that one. Ah, I called the Com-Center on the phone and told them that if they went outside they could probably see it.

Unit #2W30: Okay, are they seriously sending O.S.P. out here?

Unknown Officer: I assume they are. O.S.P. has contacted Wright Pat apparently. (NOTE: Incorrect, WCCC contacted Wright Pat)

Unit #2W30: Okay.

Unknown Officer: They checked with them, I don't know if they're actually going to have them come to your location or what.

***Continued discussion***

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Dispatch, Lori.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Hey Lori, this is Lori.

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Yep.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: What's your latest update, are they still there?

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Yeah, they're still there and they still have a visual on it.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Damn! You know, I've called just about every number I could find on UFO's but these numbers are so damned old!

WCCC Dispatcher #4: Have you got a unit enroute up there?

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Yeah, I have two.

WCCC Dispatcher #3: Tell them to capture it, tell them to lasso it and pull it down.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Well what they're going to do is to film it so we can see it later.

WCCC Dispatcher #3: Okay.

O.S.P. Dispatcher: Okay, bye.

Lisa: This is Lisa.

Unit #2W30: Lisa

Lisa: yes.

Unit #2W30: this is Two-William-Thirty

Lisa yes

Unit #2W30: what is going on?

Lisa: Well I don't know, you're out there looking at it, what is it?

Unit #2W30: Ahh I couldn't tell you.

Lisa: Is there really something there though?

Unit #2W30: I can tell you it's not a plane and it's not a star.

Lisa: It's not a plane and it's not star?

Unit #2W30: No, it's round and it's got wait a second, O.S.P. is on the scene.

Lisa: Anything in the air.. I don't know if you know this or not, but anything in the air or falls from the air is State Patrol's jurisdiction. Evidently you didn't know that because we could hear your side traffic but we had to tell that that's procedure. Anything in the air or falls from the air is State Patrol but that's where are you at where it you can see it? Is it like right over you or?

Unit #2W30: No, it's in the distance toward Hamilton.

Lisa: Towards Hamilton?

Unit #2W30: Yeah, O.S.P.'s here, I'll have to give you a call back.

Lisa: Okay.

***WCCC dispatcher observes UFO north of her location***

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Highway State Patrol, Dispatcher Hussman (sp?)

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Hey Kim

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Yeah.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: What are they saying about that UFO?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: I don't know yet.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: I can see it from here. It's got a light blue light, a yellow light and a red light alternating, flashing on it and it looks like it's in a line. If I step out not the door that we normally come in but that other basement door walk to the top of the steps and look at (Route) 48, it's to the left way up in the sky up like toward my house toward Waynesville.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: We're still trying to find phone numbers.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: For what?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: To get a hold of somebody.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: We've got the UFO numbers.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Tell me what you've got, because everything we've got isn't any good.

***Radio traffic from other police officers heard in background, they assure the object is not a plane and not a star.***

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: It's not a plane and it's not a star, they're saying, and it's not moving

WCCC Dispatcher #5: It didn't move when I was looking at it. ***calls out for Tonya to find UFO number*** Here it is, National UFO Reporting Center, 206-722-3000. That's in Seattle.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: That's who we're on the phone with and they said if it's only one, it could be a Sirius star.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: It's got a light blue, a yellow and a red flashing light on it.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2 ***Repeats to attendant in room to convey to NUFORC***: She said it's got a light blue, a yellow and a red flashing light on it and they're in a straight line.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Well, if it's like in a circle, I'm only seeing it's not the same light alternating flash, it's in different locations, like the light blue is in the middle, the red flashes on the right and the yellow flashes on the left of the light blue light, and the light blue light stays constant.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: The light blue light is in the middle.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Correct. And from where I'm looking at it, the red is on the right and the yellow is on the left, and they flash. The light blue light flashes but it's almost like it's flickering. The other one's you just see alternately. Trying looking at it, it's different! I mean they're not flashing, it's not the same light changing colors, it's like three different locations on a straight line. Right on the same thing, you can tell it's the same thing. And it doesn't look like it's up as far as a star would be but it's higher than a plane would be, and it's stationary.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: LAUGHTER

WCCC Dispatcher #5: What?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: We just talked to them at that national UFO hotline?

WCCC Dispatcher #5 yeah?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: They just told her that last January several departments in Illinois chased after a triangular-shaped UFO for several miles

WCCC Dispatcher #5: and then?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: nothing.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: It disappeared?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: There's nothing they could do!

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Well what good are they? So we can't get anybody to see if they can get this on radar or anything?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Our guys are filming it.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Oh, they are?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: They're trying to.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Okay well, I just wondered what your status was with it.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: So far, that's it.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: So the UFO Center is thinking it is possibly a Sirius star?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Yes.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: With those color lights?

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: Yes.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: I don't think so, but okay.

O.S.P. Dispatcher #2: They said if it's one, it's a Sirius star, but if there's two, it's not a Sirius star.

WCCC Dispatcher #5: Okay, bye.

***Final conversation***

Local: William 30, Robert 50. There's also one to the north.

Unit #2W30: Okay, you see one now?

Local: Yeah, I see from our direction from you and to the north a little bit.

Unit #2W30: Yeah, that's the one I think we're looking at and I have no clue what it is.

Local: Well at first I'd say it was just stars through the atmosphere but the ones that are lower than that doesn't look like those.

Unit #2W30: No, from where we're at with the binoculars that we got, this isn't a star, I can tell you that much. And it's not a plane, I can definitely rule out those two.

Local: Yeah, I've got some real small glasses up here and can see all the colors but can't make out any form.

Unit #2W30: I'm calling Com-Center now and see what's going on.

Local: Okay, so what have you got? William 30, Robert 50. William 30, Robert 50. William 30, Robert 50. What's he ending up with?

Unknown Officer: I think it's wishful thinking, I don't think it's much. It's some sparkling lights, I think it's a plane or something, but I don't know.

Local (laughing) Okay, you're clear.

Unit #2W30: 16 to Robert-50, he just needed to get his eyes re-examined because -like I said- this isn't a plane and it's not a star.

Local: Yeah, I sat up here watching it for awhile and if it's a plane it's not moving.

Unknown Officer: You guy's have been watching too many X-Files movies.

Unit #2W30: 16 to Robert-50, do you still have a good visual on it?

Local: I'm up by "4-3" now and I can't see anything from up here. When I left the park over there I could still see two of them, anyway.

Unit #2W30: Okay.

Local: I'll leave them into your capable hands and trust you'll keep it safe tonight. I'm going "A.W."

Unit #2W30: Okay, I'm going to leave this to The State, to O.S.P. to handle, so I'm "A.W" also.

Local: You're clear.
