House Mysteriously Appears in Sierra Vista, Arizona

A UFO is one thing – a flashing light in the sky, a glowing orb that flies at incredible speeds. But what do you do when that mysterious object, the one that seemingly appears out of nowhere and leaves just as quickly, is a house?

A MUFON report submitted on September 28, 2014 shares the bizarre tale of a couple from Sierra Vista, Arizona who encountered just that. At 9:45 p.m. on “a clear December night” in 2012, the two went outside for a cigarette only to find a house in the field across the street. It had never been there before. And the lights were on.

“We were only out there about a minute before we noticed what appeared to us to be a single wide mobile home or rectangular shaped house in the field across the street. This field is totally fenced in and there has been nothing there for several years so we were surprised to see a house. We hadn’t heard anything during the day nor see any movement /trucks bringing in a house. There appeared to be a door with a window on each side. Lights were on but the house/object appeared to be empty.”

They stood and pondered on the house’s mysterious appearance for a while. But after deciding that there wasn’t much they could do about a rogue house manifestation, especially at that time of night, they went to bed.

However, the next morning, things only got stranger.

“The next morning we got our coffee and went outside to have a smoke and the object was not in the field – there was nothing there. It was an empty fenced in field as it always was.”

And that’s how the story ends. “It was very very odd,” says the submission, “To this day every time we drive by we always look at the fencing to see how someone could have pulled in a trailer and there is no way.”

  1. Sorta reminds me of Draculas mansion. I could be wrong, but I thought that was how his Castle operates. Regarding the story, sorta sounds a mirage.

  2. Similar incident occurred in my native place (‘Yingkiong’, ‘Arunachal’, India), a man while going to his paddy fields early in the morning, saw a house appear opposite his fields as if it was always there. He was baffled, got curious, so he opened the gate and went in, met a lady inside… he asked her, who they were and how they build the house overnight, She replied that they were always there, and they always saw him there..The man could not believe it and felt terribly disturbed, so he just left without saying anything… He came out and closed the gate behind him, He turned to look back only to find the house missing!! It disappeared..

  3. Parallel Universes explain these anomalies. They would also make time travel possible. Going back in time to change the future would not be an issue because that exact change already happened in a previous parallel universe the time traveler would return to the universe he created. This possibility is fast becoming a probability of reality, sure would go a long way to explaining various anomalies that have been observed yet can’t be explained.
