"I look up and then I was like oh shit."
Videos show a strange, longish object floating in the air near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli on Oahu island.
After several 911 calls, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that there weren't any aircraft disappearing off the radar nor were there any reports of missing aircraft in the region, according to ABC 11.

"I look up and then I was like oh shit," UFO spotter Moriah told local news station Hawaii News Now. "I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!"
"I don’t know what it was," she added. "This one was going so fast."
The entire time, the telephone pole-sized object reportedly made no noise — even when it went for a dip in the ocean and disappeared.
Let's be clear: Just because authorities don't know what a flying object is doesn't mean it's an alien spacecraft. And to be absolutely clear, the odds are overwhelming that this one isn't.
But in the era of tightly-regulated airspaces and imaging technologies, it is striking to find any object in the sky that we can't identify — which is why even the former director of the CIA recently described some UFO videos as "eyebrow-raising."
