A smoke break turned into a surreal experience for one individual earlier this week.

According to a report on UFO Stalker, a witness went outside around 9:30 a.m. to smoke and noticed a white object in the sky. The object initially appeared to be stationary, but then began to move across the sky. Thinking the object was a plane, the witness continued to watch and noticed the object had stopped moving again.

"I thought perhaps it had been turning and just appeared to be stationary to my view. It suddenly went straight up really fast for a second and stopped again," the witness wrote. "The speed it went up with was not something I had seen before. Now I was paying attention. I know what I saw."

The witness took a photo using a cell phone, but did not upload the image to the UFO Stalker website.

"I'm not saying I took a picture of a 'UFO' but the movement this object made was not something I had ever seen a plane make," the witness explained.

The witness continued to watch the erratic movement until the object disappeared from sight.

"I'm not saying this was 'UFO' but it moved faster than an object, normal object, can move at that distance from me," the report stated. "It also stopped twice and just sat there. Since the hairs on my body stood up I decided to tell someone. I didn't want to tell my coworkers or family what I had seen. I don't even know what I saw. If it was a plane, it is not like any plane I have ever seen or heard of."

On the evening of Jan. 15, another UFO sighting reportedly occurred near Winder off Hog Mountain Road. Lorin Sinn-Clark described the incident in a blog post:

"At 8:34 p.m. she looked up and saw a line of lights, some red, some orange, some white, hovering in front of the car. The colored lights were flashing, the white ones not. The object about the size of an 18-wheeler and made no noise at all," Sinn-Clark wrote.

There were other witnesses to the incident. Read the full account here.

There have been several other sightings reported in the area this week. On Jan. 15, a witness in Dacula reported seeing what appeared to be "one big UFO" over Dacula. That same day,  a sighting was reported in Lawrenceville. According to the report, the witness was traveling on Sugarloaf Parkway toward Grayson when he or she spotted a formation of red and white lights. Also on Jan. 15, six to eight pulsating red lights moving in a formation were spotted over Athens.

This is not the first time UFOs have been spotted in the area. Previous sightings have been reported in WinderBuford and Dacula.

You better add Buford to the list of reported sightings. On January 15th, at approximately 8:30 p.m. my neighbor and I walked outside and out of the corner of my eye, I caught a red light coming through the trees. As we stopped and watched, we noticed more lights following. There were ten lights total. Some were solid red and some were flashing red and they were all traveling in formation. We noticed that they were coming from the direction of Winder and were headed towards Atlanta in a long horizontal turn. There was no up or down movement. It appeared to be just under the commercial airliners that were flying overhead. I could not tell if it was one single object or multiple objects. It made no sound at all. It was not a plane or helicopter for sure. If it was a solid object, it had to be, I'm guessing, a mile or more in length. We watched for about ten minutes before it disappeared over the tree line.

That smoke break? Was he smoking wacky back? That looks like the sun shining thru clouds. Ever notice pic's of these supposedly reported ufo's are always just out of focus are just behind a cloud Hmmmmm you'd think someone some where would snap a great photo. I'm not saying the military doesn't have a few top secret airplanes and some of these sightings in the past may have been military but I'm far from. Believing in extraterrestrial intelligent life.

Add Hiram / Dallas to that list. I dropped my son off at school, and I was traveling down hwy92.....Wow... I could see other planes in the sky.....but this was oval, and different from all others. I watched it for a minute or two...then it was just gone. One of the planes I was watching was facing that direction, so they must have seen it.
