Arkansas Witness Reports Giant ‘X’ UFO Silently Crossing Morning Sky | Roger Marais

An Arkansas witness in Cave Springs reported a brief UFO sighting just after 6 a.m. on Feb. 1, 2022, that looked like a giant “X” in the sky, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC .org).

“I turned north on Sands Road and noticed what I first thought was a plane,” the witness said. “They are extremely common as we are close to XNA (Northwest Arkansas National Airport) airport. However, it was a very strange and large shape of an ‘X’ or plus sign. It was moving slowly, just below cloud level at a slight upward angle to the north-northwest.”

The witness observed the craft enter the cloud layer and disappear inside.

“Didn’t hear any jet or propeller aircraft noise. I turned west on Wallis Road trying to keep seeing its way and turned left (south) into the driveway of the subdivision. There were no vehicles present in any direction. I I continued and stopped to try to regain my sight, but he was gone. I was amazed and had no the presence of mind nor the time (since it disappeared so quickly) to pull out my phone for a video or photo capture.

The witness is an airplane enthusiast and said, “It wasn’t an airplane.”

“The two upper ‘arms’ of the craft (for lack of a better description) of the craft had a light on the end (white). The very center of the ‘X’ or plus sign had a red light. two lower arms had two lights each (on each arm). I made some drawings of the shape to define as best as possible what it looked like. It was way too big to be a drone. This contraption would have been between 50 and 100 feet in size.

“It was not a LifeFlight helicopter, Osprey or other military craft. The craft was silent. Nothing was audible. I wanted to try and demystify what I saw, so I downloaded and checked the Flightpath 24 software on my phone There were three flights between 6am and around 6:15am None of the flight paths were over my house that morning The closest flight path was several miles south. I finished a screen recording of the flight paths to try to refute what I had just seen, but that was just reinforced the reality of it.”

The witness is a senior director of business development in consumer goods and in his 50s.

“I am analytical with knowledge and skills in data analysis, as well as a minor degree in computer science.”

The witness reported that the duration of the UFO sighting was between five and 10 seconds.
