At about 7 am Feb 8, 2024, after seeing what he believed was a UFO, the young man called his mother to share the news. She instructed him to start filming right away, and that's exactly what he did.

At first glance, the object appears to be a dark, shadowy spot in the sky. One might mistake it for part of a cloud or something, but it's clearly an object sitting still in the sky. While you can't make out exactly what it is, it definitely has the shape of a traditional saucer-shaped UFO. We're not saying that's what it is; it just resembles that shape.

The still photo doesn't do the image justice; you really have to see the video which has much better clarity. Unfortunately, the video was shared in the Michigan UFO Sightings and Paranormal Encounters Podcast Facebook Group, which isn't shareable. So, to see the actual video, you'll need to join the group.

Sometimes you have to stop what you're doing, lift your face from your phone, and just look up. If more people start doing this, I bet the number of sightings would significantly increase.
