02-10-2010 – HOLE IN CLOUD


A small sampling of types of cases regularly investigated by MUFON


[Editor’s Note: The following cases represent a fraction of the many cases investigated by MUFON this year [2010]. They were selected by Rob Swiatek, who reviewed the case files and then provided these excerpts.]


Domed disk in snow listed as 'unexplained'


       UFOs occasionally appear when weather conditions are poor. During a heavy snowfall about 8 p.m. on February 10, a man entering a Dunkin' Donuts in Bayonne, New Jersey, was surprised to see a domed object drop through a hole in the clouds [See note below]. The witness said that the domed disk resembled a bowl atop a plate. It was dark gray with a series of windows or vertical lines at the junction between the dome and "plate." He reported the lines extended perhaps 10 percent of the distance to the apex of the dome. Air around the object seemed to be distorted or wavering as though from intense heat.

       The witness initially thought that the object was a jetliner in distress. This idea was dispelled when the UFO hovered for some seconds, then slowly moved south-southeast below the clouds toward the Verrazano Bridge. The witness estimated the UFO to be the size of an airliner. He thought it was moving at an altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 feet. The UFO disappeared completely after about two minutes. MUFON field investigator Chuck Streb listed the case as unexplained.

NOTE: This is another example of the well-investigated case that occurred in Chicago on November 07, 2006. This report can be read at:


I believe that the hole is caused by the heat of the UFOs surrounding field (CF). I bolded the text that applied to the heat.
