2021 - 2022 Sky Ship Photos

Photos from around the world and deep space are in “Global Links” section.


Gigantic sphere appeared for 5 hours over Colorado

This gigantic multi-colored sphere traveled across Colorado’s ski country for more than five hours on October 12, 2022.  The FAA weather camera at Wolf Creek Pass snapped photos of it every ten minutes.  Remarkably, a devoted sky watcher, Gina Maria Colvin Hill, was watching the live feed and saved the video.

The video is brief but it includes a 32 sequential photos that were snapped every 10 minutes (32 x 10 = 320 minutes or 5.33 hours). The entire sequence begins 33 seconds into the video that is linked below.  If you watch carefully, you will see slight jumps between each of the 32 FAA weather cam snapshots. Importantly, FAA identification, camera location, date and exact time are shown on each frame of the video.

We have no way of knowing what this sphere is, but since the weather cam is stationary, the sphere clearly is moving across the sky. - The editor

Swarm of UFOs revealed with infrared camera

Our cameras often reveal more in the sky than our unaided eyes can see. The two above photos are great examples. They were taken of the Sun with an infrared filter on the camera.  Like magic, the filter reveals many UFOs that Gina Maria Colvin Hill could not see at the time she took the photos. We thank her for making them available for the public to see. – The editor



Large orb in front of Sun is real – photo evidence

For decades, cameras around the world periodically have captured a large orb in front of the Sun. It’s typically dismissed as the effect of the Sun’s intense light on the cameras.  This photo puts a hole in that theory.  Only a solid object in front of the Sun would cast a reflection on water. This photo was taken by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) webcam at the Gustavus, Alaska airport dock. – The editor



Massive C-5 and the C-17 cargo aircraft stationed at the U.S. Robins Air Force Base
are too big and too slow to be misidentified as UFOs.

UFO flies over Robins Air Force Base

On June 2, 2022, a UFO was seen flying over Warner Robins, Georgia where the Robins Air Force Base in located.  Below is an eyewitness report from Phillip Rodriquez.  His camera only captured the object at a distance, but we have added enlargements from his original video footage. – The editor

“I witnessed an orb flying over Warner Robins, Georgia on June 2, 2022 at approximately 12:27 to 12:29 p.m. I believe I was facing northwest. The color seemed to be a blackish/gunmetal grey color.

“The craft originally was an orb, then transformed into a rectangle for a split second, then back to an orb and then disappeared. The object also was moving ultra, ultra-fast.  I've witnessed other UFOs in the same relative area.

“I know there is an U.S. Air Force base nearby but the only aircraft stationed there are C-5s and C-17s which are massive cargo aircraft that are too big and too slow to match the fasting moving object that I saw.”



Strangest UFOs ever seen over Cashiers, NC
By Mary Joyce, website editor

During the 14-year history of this website, the night of January 24, 2015 remains the most remarkable for UFO sightings over the mountaintop town of Cashiers, North Carolina.  UFOs were zipping all over the sky and included the strangest UFOs we’ve ever seen.

They were everywhere – east, north, south, west. They were different sizes, different colors – so many I couldn’t count them all.  Sometimes I saw laser-like beams of light shoot across the sky, but so fast I couldn’t get a photo.” – Glynis Heenan, resident of Cashiers, NC

Some of the most unique UFOs seen that night are shown below.  The white object in the first photo is an “ordinary” or typical UFO often seen over Cashiers. It is dwarfed by the strange monster that hovered by its side. We encourage you to use the zoom feature on your computer to get a closer look at these puzzling monsters.



Security camera catches UFO over Lake Toxaway, NC

Lake Toxaway is about 12 miles east of Cashiers and 50 miles southwest of Asheville, NC.

A star in the night sky is not bright enough to be recorded by an outdoor security camera.  So, something bigger and brighter was captured by a front door camera at a home in Lake Toxaway, NC in the early hours of April 22, 2022.

Below are four frames from that night’s video which was sent to us by a woman who lives in Lake Toxaway.  Note that at 2:37 a.m. there is no light in the sky but after that the camera records a slow-moving UFO from 3:24 to 4:56 a.m. – The editor



Video of UFO over secret underground base

After receiving this eyewitness testimony and video from Jeff who lives on a mountain ridge bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I spoke with him on the phone.  He is a perfect eyewitness because he was with the U.S. Air Force for many years serving in the USA, Germany, Luxembourg, Turkey, Spain and Italy. 

Because of his Air Force training, he was able to provide compass and location directions for his sighting. Surprise, the craft he saw was above a secret underground military base beneath the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can learn more about the facility in my book “Underground Military Bases Hidden in North Carolina Mountains.” – The Editor

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

JEFF’S SIGHTING REPORT: “At approximately 8:15 p.m. on March 14, 2022,  I was out with the dog when I heard a plane flying overhead.  Having been in the Air Force, I looked up to see if I could see it. 

“At first, I thought I saw it moving way up high but then it appeared to stop.  As I watched, it shifted right, jumped to another spot, moved left and right. It clearly was not a plane, though I could hear the sound of a plane fading off in the distance. 

“I ran into the house to get my cellphone and managed to record this brief video which shows the craft’s erratic movements.  However, I could see more details of the craft than my cellphone could capture.  What I saw was a circle-shaped craft with three white balls evenly spaced on it. The object made no sound.”

Best time to see UFOs

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, which was founded 48 years ago in 1974, almost three-quarters of all UFO sightings occur between 4 p.m. and midnight with the peak between 9 p.m. and midnight.



Woman sees UFOs and Bigfoot from her home

EDITOR’S NOTE:  The following photos and testimony are from Robin McCray who lives in South Carolina. She often sees UFOs above her home but this time they were closer to the ground and her son-in-law was able to get several good photos. Interestingly, she also has Bigfoot living on her land.  This is worth mentioning because many people believe there is an ET connection with the Bigfoot. I’ve written about some of Robin’s experiences in my book “BIGFOOT – Beyond the Footprints.”

“My son-in-law, Ryan Jordan, walked out on our porch the evening of January 7, 2022 and saw a colorful UFO in the sky,” she wrote in her email.  “He immediately dashed back inside to tell us. Of course, my husband and I followed him out the door.

“We all saw a colorful UFO that was quite close to the ground and another smaller one. We watched them for about 20 minutes. Ryan took these photos with his cellphone about 8:20 p.m. that evening.

“We are seeing UFOs on a regular basis; most nights they show up.  Two often appear together and seem to communicate by flashing lights at each other. As you know, we continue to see Bigfoot on our property.”



Why the switch from UFO to UAP?
By Mary Joyce, website editor

The term UAP came into being in 2020 when the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence within the Department of Defense formed the “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.”  The new task force was created because ever-changing phenomena without definable shapes were being seen more frequently in our skies.

Though the task force is new, the UAPs are not. The above photos of a UAP were taken by a professional photographer hiking in Griffith Park in Los Angeles back on July 12, 2014.  She wasn’t planning to take sky photos but then she saw a “tiny white object slowly tracking through the sky.” Fortunately, she had a camera with a 200mm lens with her so she could zoom in on the UAP.

“It was so fascinating and bizarre looking,” she told us. “It looked like some kind of plasma-morphing marshmallow.”



EDITOR’S NOTE:  We received these six photos along with the following explanation from Deborah Mathews on April 10, 2021.  Beneath her explanation, we’ve posted zoom shots of her two photos where the 10-10-10 appeared. Notice the orb of light in the lower left corner of the fourth photo; it is not in any of the others. We’ve included a zoom shot of that too.

Thought-provoking lights at abandoned church
By Deborah Mathews

“Back in 2008, I was part of an art committee in our local city. We painted street banners of art. This particular night on 8/22/2008, we were meeting at the women’s club and decided that night to take on a project across the street at an old abandoned church. They had chosen a stained-glass window that needed to be painted with art.

“They asked me to go across the street and take a few photos of the window. I walked outside in the dark and up under the corner streetlight then into the street to take photos. What you see are several photos I took of the church.

“This was my very first camera experience with spirit energy. What I found fascinating was the 10-10-10 that shot across the front of the church. I took all these photos one right after the other. Notice the 10-10-10 appeared in two photos but in different locations.

“After taking these six photos of the church, I went to the opposite side of the intersection and took photos of a massive number of orbs that were all over the area. Maybe they were there to witness my first connection.”



Watch UFO accelerate to liftoff

This 15-second video is worth watching.  It shows a UFO in Antarctica that’s just above the water and then accelerates to liftoff.  As it goes down the invisible runway, you can see how it agitates the water and casts a shadow.

The video was taken from a helicopter above the UFO. We stumbled upon this video at Omega Ovnis UFOs which is a non-governmental UFO investigative group in San Juan, Costa Rica.

UFOs from sea mutilating animals

These UFO photos were sent to this website by John Mooner, chief investigator for He took them from Newton Abbot in Southern England on January 29, 2021 at 11:39 a.m.

Mooner explained: “I was outside in the back garden looking through my high-powered zoom binoculars when I spotted a strange structured craft that was off to the west and was in the distance but still discernible.
“It was moving diagonally through a cloud. I could see that the craft was metallic in nature as the sunlight was reflecting off its surface. It definitely wasn't anything conventional and that's why it caught my attention.

“I put my binoculars down on the garden table and picked up my Nikon P900 camera. I then zoomed in on the craft and immediately took a photograph just before it flew up through the clouds and disappeared into the atmosphere. I was ecstatic I had once again captured a very compelling photograph of an alien craft high above the town.

“These craft are real and very prevalent around this area due to the town's close proximity to the moors (uncultivated open lands) and the sea. I have been researching this topic for a very long time now and I know for a fact that these alien craft are coming out of the sea.

“Then they fly up to the moors where they are mutilating sheep and ponies for soft genetic material. The true purpose of why they are collecting this genetic material still remains a mystery; I can only speculate.”



Cheerio-shaped UFO over NC Mountains

Stacy Amolsch-Roy looked up and saw two lights in the sky about 7:30 p.m. EST on December 21, 2020. They were over the Pisgah Mountains southwest of her home in Candler, NC (red marker).

“I watched them for a couple of minutes as they slowly moved away from me,” Stacy explained.  “But before they disappeared, I had time to run in the house to get my camera and take a photo.”

“The first one was taken with a standard camera setting and shows the relative spacing between the two UFOs.  Then I zoomed in for a clearer look at each of them. Both were a fiery color and did not change shape.”
