Another UFO Over The Quad-Cities?
Is ET shopping at HyVee?
A third UFO sighting in as many weeks flew onto local radar over the weekend, this time over central Rock Island.
Previous sightings have occurred in east Davenport near Bettendorf and in downtown Rock Island and Davenport, during a sighting of possibly two UFOs floating high over the Mississippi River from the Iowa side into the Illinois side and into central Rock Island. That sighting was likewise reported and demonstrated on video here on QuadCities.com.
The latest sighting took place late Sunday night and involved an object of flashing green lights and static red lights zig-zagging across the sky in central Rock Island near 18th Street over the residential area near HyVee and Whitey’s. The object appeared in the northern sky, popping up through cloud cover, then zig-zagging about before flying off into the horizon on the western sky.
Unlike the previous object, which was much more slower moving and appeared to be much larger, and seemed far more unusual and deflecting easy explanation, this one had much more movement and lighting and seemed like it could’ve been a more advanced drone with a greater range.
Nevertheless, given that it was a flying object and was not readily identified, the UFO moniker still stands, and, added to the other sightings, makes for an interesting conversation topic.
Are the Quad-Cities being visited by alien beings? Are ET’s phoning Harris Pizza for deliveries? Are little green people having a hankering for little green pistachio ice cream cones from Whitey’s? Where the hell are Mulder and Scully when we need them???
