Chasing UFOs Sighting of the Week: Mysterious Smoke Ring in Rockledge, FL

This week’s Chasing UFOs Sighting of the Week comes to us from Kelly King who spotted a strange, fast-moving craft in  Rockledge, FL near Cape Canaveral.

I was driving in Rockledge, Florida towards I-95 as I looked out of the window I saw a silver round metallic object go over the top of us. It came to a sudden stop just over I-95 near Fiske blvd. It hovered for a second, then proceeded to do a circular motion at a high rate of speed. At this time you could barely make out the silver as it was moving so fast. This movement created a cloud/smoke-like ring where the object was moving. The center was clear and you could see the sky. The object abruptly stopped in the center. There was then a flash, like that of a camera, and then the object shot straight up in the sky. The object moved so fast that it was not visible within seconds. All that was left was the cloud/smoke-like formation in the sky. This all happened so fast that by the time I had my camera phone ready all that I caught was the formation that was left. This happened in daylight with many people around. I have never put the photos out before.

Kelly also provided the drawing above of the craft as it appeared to him before it zipped off into the sky. We were fascinated by Kelly’s story. What kind of craft could have left a smoke trail like the one in the picture? There have been many reports of unidentified craft surrounding the shuttle launches in Cape Canaveral. In fact, in a recent episode of Chasing UFOs titled “Game of Drones”, hosts Ben, James and Ryder investigated these reports.

    Thanks for picking my sighting! Wow. One thing I forgot to mention in the report was the size of the object. It was near the size of a semi-trailer. The picture doesn’t quite show how high it really was. I missed the object in the photo by seconds…so sad. People in the cars next to us were pointing and motioning at the object. It could be a secret project or something else. Who knows? It was an interesting experience no matter what.
    Thanks again and we love the show.
