Couple Reports Men in Black Encounter After UFO Sighting in Boston

It is puzzling that the latest government ‘report’ (more of a summary) on UAPs/UFOs reveals publicly that the number of sightings being reported in the U.S. has  increased dramatically, but there has been little if any increase or even mentions of the Men in Black – the mysterious purported protectors of UFO and alien disclosure dress as their names imply and are alleged to be far more dangerous than the movie series of the same name or some X-Files episodes have portrayed them. Nonetheless, if UFOs and aliens are now safe to talk about, why are we not hearing more about encounters – past or present – with the Men in Black? Well, today is your and their lucky day -- a couple in Massachusetts has come forward to reveal their recent meeting with some Men in Black. Is this the start of a trend?

“Huge orb going upwards in the sky, like if you were standing on the ground looking up at a streetlight. There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, Entities were seen”

So begins a report to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) on December 9, 2022. The report was submitted by the brother of the witness on behalf of – and potentially out of concern for the safety of – his sister and her boyfriend in Boston, Massachusetts. According to the report, a few weeks ago the witnesses were watching video interviews on the Internet of astronauts and pilots and their encounters with UFOs. Could these videos have planted a seed in their minds to cause what happened next?

“About four nights ago, my sister and her boyfriend went out to smoke a cigarette around 2:30am. They were looking up at the moon and talking about how those astronauts in the videos they watched weeks ago really have no reason to lie about UFO sightings and how crazy it must have been for them. Within less than five seconds of talking about that out loud, they were peering up in the sky, and saw an orb-like bright light was so bright the light illuminated their faces as if in the presence of fireworks. It was going upwards in the sky, not in a completely straight path but was swerving a little and going upwards. There were a few spark-like elements coming from the bottom of the craft, and the craft itself was visible for about three seconds before it completely disappeared.”

Coincidence? The brother submitting the report says his sister is a “huge” paranormal believer, and she and her boyfriend quickly eliminated in their minds the possibilities they saw a meteor or a plane. The brightness of the object prevented them from making out a shape. The brother surmised that because both of them saw the UFO they couldn’t have been hallucinating. (Did he ever hear of the concept of ‘sharing’ or ‘cutting a tab in half’?) He claims they decided the object – or whatever was piloting it – heard what they were talking about and wanting to send them a message. At that point, they went back into the house

That would be enough for most people, but the brother says the couple was distressed after talking about the sighting and needed more cigarettes, so they went back outside. That is when things allegedly got interesting.


“After about two minutes of being outside the second time, a black sedan SUV pulled up across the street -- seemingly out of nowhere with absolutely no sounds. A man in all black came out and opened the trunk of the SUV, turned around, and began to stare at them. They could tell he was dressed in black but couldn't make out his face.”

So far, this MIB encounter is following the standard script – black sedan, man dressed in black, unusual behavior. The only thing missing was more than one MIB. That soon changed.

“Within seconds of this, her and her boyfriend noticed two other men in black standing at the end of the street, one house down from where they lived, kind of swaying back and forth as if they were trying to make out who or what they were. It seemed as if they were more intrigued by seeing my sister and her boyfriend than they were to see the men in black. My sister described them as also wearing all black attire, and couldn't see their faces or even their skin color despite being only one house down from where they were standing.”

More men dressed in black, more unusual behavior. Throw in an inability to identify any facial features and this is becoming a classic MIB encounter. Then they noticed something really strange.

“They were all blurred out and did not have distinct facial features.”

In these modern times, we have come to accept seeing faces blurred or pixelated in photos or videos on television or on the Internet. Could this have influenced the couple into thinking that their inability to make out facial features on any of these ‘men’ was due to an intentional blurring phenomena on their part? Or could they have been confused by fog or smoke? After all, they admitted stepping outside again for a smoke. Was it theirs or were these men in black smoking too?

Why were their faces blurred? 

“It was also almost 3:30am at this point, the MIB weren't talking to each other, smoking, or doing anything that made sense. They were just staring at them as was the guy with the trunk open to his SUV across the street.”

At this point in a sci-fi movie or TV series, the next person or being to make a move is responsible for whatever happens next. In this case, according to the brother, that was his sister.

“As soon as that happened she grabbed her boyfriend's hand and sprinted inside the house, fearing that if she wasn't physically touching him he could've mysteriously disappeared somewhere behind her as they were running.”

That may have been a wise move for the couple … but not for us. The portion of the report on the Men in Black ends here. Did the two without a car meet up with the one standing by the black SUV? Did they come closer to reveal their faces? Did they try any mind control or make any verbal threats or warnings? Unfortunately, we may never know. According to the brother, the sister is now scared and afraid to be alone. She tried to make a police report, but the cops focused on the UFOs and that’s not under their list of responsibilities. What about three strange men in the neighborhood in the middle of the night? Those who wonder why she didn’t take out her cell phone and record them have never been out in the middle of the night and encountered three strange men. The brother has no answers either, which is why he submitted the report to NUFORC and asked for help or for any other witnesses to come forward.

If what these people reported really happened, it certainly sounds more like a Men in Black encounter than a coincidence … even taking into account the fact that the couple was watching UFO videos before seeing the UFO. That brings us back to my original question – if the number of UFO/UAP sightings is increasing, is the number of Men in Black encounters going up too? Or, if you believe they are the enforcers of an organization suppressing reports, are they so busy that they don’t have the time or the numbers to keep up with the increased workload? If they MIB truly are real, will the promised willingness to be more open with reports cause the government to reveal details of their nature and mission?

Or will the government – and potentially the aliens and the Men in Black – be content with us creating our own scenarios in our minds?

Would YOU record the Men in Black on your phone at 3:30 am?
