Interest in UFOs, even in the wider population, is arguably even higher as we start 2022 than it was when we headed into 2021. Whether this interest will result, directly or indirectly, in further releases of information or not remains to be seen.
The following 12 months, though, looks set to see more and more sightings of strange objects in our skies being reported around the world. And we will document the best of them right here, so make sure you bookmark this page.
January saw many UFO reports come from all around the planet suggesting that sightings of these strange objects look set to continue. And, as always, these reports ranged from solid objects to strange lights and even snake-like objects climbing high into the sky. And while we should treat such sightings and reports with a certain pinch of salt, many of these sightings are truly intriguing.
We will start with a sighting that resulted in a particularly interesting photograph.
Two Triangular Objects Photographed Over Huntsville, Texas, 2nd January
Without a doubt one of the most intriguing incidents of the new year occurred in Huntsville, Texas at around 6 pm on 2nd January. On the evening in question a local man took a photograph of the cloudy sky. He claimed that he “noticed something” but that he paid little attention to it. That was until he examined the photographs a little later on.
Two triangular formations of light – likely the underside of a triangular craft if we accept the picture to be genuine for a moment – can clearly be seen. Given that most people who claim to have seen such object close up state they are huge, these objects would appear to be quite some distance away (which might explain why the witness paid little attention to them when he took the picture).
You can see that picture below. Do they show genuine unknown objects or might there be another explanation?
Orange-Red Light Over Farmingdale, New York, 3rd January
An orange-red orb-like object was filmed over Farmingdale in New York on the evening of 3rd January which is worth examining here. The witness claimed that they first noticed the light while driving from the Farmingdale train station. Their passenger also witnessed the strange light.
They continued to watch it for several minutes. Then, after dropping his passenger off the witness pulled to the side of the road in order to capture several moments of video footage of it.
You can view that footage below.
UFO Filmed By Flight Crew Over Georgia, 3rd January
Without a doubt, one of the most intriguing sightings of a UFO in the opening weeks of 2022 occurred over the state of Georgia on the evening of 3rd January. What’s more, the witness who filmed the footage was part of a flight crew that was at an altitude of 39,000 feet.
The witness stated in their report that they had originally taken their phone out so they could capture a picture of the Milky Way. However, shortly after he had done so another aircraft passed over the top of them, around 1,000 feet higher. He switched the video camera on and began filming this other aircraft. As he did, though, he noticed a “V-shaped object” appear, as if out of nowhere. The witness recalled that it appeared this anomalous object was between their plane and the other aircraft.
Although they were happy to make the video publicly available, both the witness and the captain of the plane stated they wished to remain anonymous. In fact, they even opted to not make an official report of the sighting.

Flashing Lights Over Moses Lake, Washington, 4th January
Although there are no picture or video footage of it, an intriguing incident unfolded around 8:30 pm on 4th January over Moses Lake in the state of Washington.
The witness stated that it was a cloudy/foggy evening and that they were looking at the moon when they noticed “sparkles of light” with “periodic red and purple flashes”. This strange aerial display lasted for around 15 minutes before it suddenly ceased. Although the witness did attempt to capture the lights with his camera phone, due to the fogginess of the evening they simply didn’t show up on any of the pictures.
The witness considered that they might have witnessed a meteor shower. However, it appears what they saw was quite possible something a little more out of the ordinary.
Incidentally, around an hour earlier off the coast of Alaska near Mt. Redoubt, a strange, glowing object was witnessed, and filmed. It is uncertain what the object is and there is little information about it, but you can view that video footage below.
Bizarre Object Filmed In Daylight Sky Over Bakersfield, California, 4th January
A truly strange aerial anomaly was witnessed during the afternoon of 4th January in Bakersfield, California. According to the witness, they and their father were locking up their shop and getting ready to leave for the day when they noticed “something odd” overhead. To begin, they believed they must be watching some plastic bags that had gotten caught in the wind. However, the more they watched it the more they realized it was something a little more out of the ordinary.
At this point they alerted their father to the strange display above them. They both stood and watched it for several minutes, noting that it appeared to have risen from 1000 feet to around 15000 feet before they lost sight of it.
They managed to capture almost two minutes of footage of the bizarre object, which does appear to show something truly strange. Whatever it may or may not be, it is certainly intriguing. You can view that footage below.
Disc-Shaped Object Over South Carolina, 6th January
Veteran UFO researcher, Scott C. Waring, reported on a truly bizarre but intriguing sighting from Orangeburg, South Carolina on the evening of 6th January. According to Waring’s report, the witness was a former USAF veteran with good knowledge of aircraft and aviation meaning that he “knew right away this was no manmade craft”.
The witness stated in their report that he was smoking a cigarette in his front yard when he noticed the strange object. It came from behind the tress and was “pulsing multicolored lights”. Several seconds later, two orb-like objects came out of the object and began to blink red.
The witness watched as the objects moved slowly and calmly overhead, eventually disappearing over the backwoods that overlooked the back of his property. What is perhaps interesting – given the connections between UFOs and water – is that these backwoods led to swampland.
Incidentally, Waring would state it was his belief that the footage was “100 percent real” that that he could find “no indication of it being a fake”. You can make up your own mind and view the footage in the video below.
Strange Lights Appear In Sky Over University Place, Washington, 8th January
A report from the files of MUFON offers a report – and footage – of several bizarre lights moving over University Place in Washington on the evening of 8th January.
According to the witness there were “random bouncing lights with three stagnant lights that appeared and reappeared”. The witness even got out of her car at one point in order to ensure that her video footage would not show any reflections from the windscreen. Another woman was also present on the street and also witnessed the bizarre display.
The witness further claimed that she had lived in the area most of her life and had never seen anything like what she witnessed that evening.
You can view that video footage below.
Five Orb-Like Object Filmed Over Port Orchard, Washington, 12th January
Just north of Seattle on the evening of 12th January in Port Orchard in the state of Washington, a local resident witnessed five orb-like objects in the night sky. They would state in their report that they were very “familiar with local flight patterns” and so he realized immediately that they looked remarkably different to what he was used to seeing overhead. He would state that the lights were “brighter than your average plane” and that they were not “in the normal path of most other planes” he would usually see there.
The lights also didn’t appear to have a predetermined route as you would expect arriving planes to have. Instead, they simply remained in the same spot in the sky before they “drifted off to the west, one by one”.
You can see the video captured by the witness below.
Bizarre Shaped Object Witnessed Over Bluffton, 13th January
On the morning of 13th January in Bluffton, South Carolina, at around 9:30 am, a strange L-shaped object was witnessed by a person who just happened to be stood in their backyard. The object was moving through the sky but appeared to be completely silent. What’s more, the way the sun was reflecting off it made the witness believe it was made from some kind of metal.
They guessed it was around half a mile away but were otherwise unable to judge the actual size or dimensions of the object. They did, though, manage to capture a picture of the bizarrely shaped craft, which you can see below.
White Glowing Object Witnessed Over Polson, Montana, 17th January
After having awoken at around 4 am in the early hours of 17th January in Polson, Montana, a local man happened to look out of the window of his trailer home when he noticed a glowing, white light in the sky. Of more concern, the light appeared to be coming towards his location. Then, it stopped suddenly and simply vanished.
UFO researcher, William Puckett examined video footage that the witness managed to capture. He would state that although there is a possibility that the object could, in fact, be a reflection, he stated this was “doubtful”. He also dismissed the possibility that it was nothing more than the moon, which was in a different part of the sky at the time of the sighting.
It is certainly intriguing footage, which you can see below.
Strange Object Over Bullhead City, Arizona, 18th January
On the morning of 18th January in Bullhead City, Arizona, when an employee at Davis Camp County Park witnessed a bizarre object in the sky while he was doing his morning rounds. He would describe the object as a “brilliant stationary light” that appeared out of the clouds.
He would estimate in his report to MUFON that the object was approximately 40 to 50 miles away. What’s more, it appeared to be “strobing or spinning” throughout the sighting. The witness managed to capture several moments of footage on his mobile phone. The footage is indeed intriguing, which you can view for yourself below.
