The month of May is always a busy month for brides, Mothers and....UFO's?

Four UFO sightings in Eastern Iowa were reported to the National UFO Reporting Center during the month of May...and if the trend continues, June could be a record breaker.

While some UFO sightings can be easily explained (thanks to the huge increase of drones) not all of the reported UFO sightings can be so easily dismissed. Even the President of the United States has been briefed on unexplained sightings by U.S. Navy pilots.

Heavy stuff. But please read on and ask yourself what would you do if you spotted an Unidentified Flying Object?

Chances are you might like to report your experience for the record. There are plenty of websites that track these sightings. You can research the monthly reports and reach your own conclusions by clicking here.

    May 14 - Cutlier, IA

    Occurred : 5/14/2019 20:30
    Reported: 5/14/2019 9:17:58 PM
    Posted: 6/7/2019
    Location: Clutier, IA
    Shape: Cigar
    Duration:15 seconds

    1 cigar shaped craft whitish silver flying at a slow rate of speed from south to north and then north to south.

    Was looking to the west and turned to go into my house and looked up to the south and seen a cigar-shaped silver to a whitish craft traveling north at approximately 15,000 ft and moving at a rate less than a jet airliner. I reached into my vehicle to get my binoculars trying to keep my eyes fixed on the craft. I looked down to grab them and it was gone out of sight. I searched the sky and could not see it any longer. I ran into the house to tell my son and father. I ran up to my sons room to share the info. We looked out his upstairs window facing east and spotted it again going from north to south. It was visible for about 10 seconds and went into a cloud and not seen again. We went outside and searched the sky and at approximately 8:45 PM we seen 2 jet aircraft traveling from west to east/ southeast at a very high speed to where the last place we seen the unidentified craft.

    I am a 48 yr old college graduate with a degree in horticulture science. I am a occasional sky watcher, space station and other interesting things in our sky. This is my first time ever seeing a UFO. My son is a 15yr old high school freshman and is a star watcher and likes to learn about our planetary system.

    Reported: 5/29/2019 8:35:45 AM
    Posted: 6/7/2019
    Location: West Liberty, IA
    Shape: Sphere
    Duration:8-10 minutes

    Whitish/yellow bright light with twinkling blue lights around it, sphere shaped, moving slowly at first and quickly accelerating

    We saw a small whitish/yellow bright light in the sky north of our home, shaped like a sphere. It had twinkling blue lights around it. At first, the object was very still. It then began to move through the sky slowly, traveling east, it would stop periodically over the span of 5 minutes or so.

    All of a sudden, the object accelerated very quickly so we had to move to another area of our house to keep observing it.

    Once we were at the other area of our home, we saw the object disappear behind some clouds in the sky.

    Dear NUFORC network On Saturday May 26th i saw a “fireball UFO” outside my house in the mid west at about 2:00 AM the UFO was orange on the outside and was yellowish on the inside the UFO moved to the west for about thirty minutes until the light got dimmer and dimmer until the light disappeared completely. I saw the UFO while sitting on my back porch. It almost felt as if my ears were popping it was very strange. I have seen this before on may 20th 2017. This time it was different though it seemed brighter than last time and it seemed closer and since we live close to the airport I had a military jet or helicopter takeoff and fly low to the ground with the spotlight on this happened on the 2017 occasion as well.
