By

MUFON Georgia announces preliminary results of its investigation into the Augusta UFO sighting of 16 October 2015.

MUFON GeorgiaAfter six days of careful investigation, MUFON Georgia has today confirmed the cause of multiple lights seen in the skies above Augusta. On the evening of the 16th, Team AeroDynamix, a solo and formation aviation team, operated a flight of RV-8 light aircraft in preparation for a performance that weekend at the Boshears Skyfest.

Beginning at dusk, the team flew in precision formation over portions of metro Augusta located to the north of the airport at Daniel Field and landed safely after dark.

According to their website, Team AeroDynamix provides an exciting and memorable performance that combines precision solo and formation flying, and they also offer a spectacular night show. (more…)

MUFON Georgia Calls for Witnesses to Come Forward

MUFON Georgia has received reports of an anomalous sighting in the skies above Augusta, Georgia, on the evening of 16 October 2015. A typical report indicated the witness saw sparkling lights to the north of Interstate 20. The vantage point was near the Bobby Jones Expressway (I-520) exit. Witnesses observed one object appear to split into two, both sparkling and appearing to change shape.

Critically, it was reported that approximately fifteen to twenty vehicles pulled over to observe the alleged UFO. MUFON Georgia is especially interested in speaking with those people. Validating this sighting would be far easier if documentary evidence existed that so many people did indeed pull over to watch.

Posted below are two videos purported to be of the alleged event. The videos have been digitally stabilized.
