FIRST RECORDED UFO SIGHTING IN THE U.S.
MARCH 1639 ….. BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS
America’s first recorded UFO was sighted late one night over the Charles River in Boston, Massachusetts. Lights sped back and forth across the Charles River from Back Bay Fens to Charlestown. Governor John Winthrop made an entry in his journal regarding this strange event. This account was later published in The Journal of John Winthrop, 1630-1649 (John Harvard Library) The witness and incident were described as follows: “One night in March of 1639 James Everell (“a sober, discreet man”- Winthrop) and two companions boarded a little boat and set out for a trip on the Muddy River in Boston. They had been moving downstream for about a mile when the night’s mysterious events began. The three men were suddenly confronted with the appearance of a huge, bright light hovering in the sky. The light “flamed up” as it hovered and appeared to be about “three yards square.” As they watched, the light “contracted into the figure of a swine” and moved “swift as an arrow” in the direction of Charlton [Charlestown]. For two or three hours, the unidentified light moved back and forth in the sky between Everell’s location and Charlton. When the light finally disappeared, the men noticed to their dismay that they had somehow been carried against the tide back to the place where they had started their trip! Governor Winthrop noted, “Divers[e] other credible persons saw the same light, after, about the same place.” Governor Winthrop appears to have been puzzled by the occurrence, devoting no less than two separate notes about it in the index to his history. The first merely gives a lengthy rendering of the sobriety and piety of the primary witness James Everell (“a good man of reputation, activity and good estate”) and another detailed note speculating whether the sighting was due to “demonic influences” or was ghost lights or will o’ the wisps (an early version of swamp gas). It’s worth noting that the figure in the sky appeared to turn into “the figure of a swine.” Everell was a leather dresser, meaning he worked with the hides of animals, tanned them, and turned them into leather goods. The “swine” or pig was the only shape in his mind that he could relate to. A far as legs of the swine, is it possible that these were struts or landing gear of a craft?
Winthrop’s account also claims the event lasted two or three hours, which rules out any chance of the object being a meteor. 1638 was almost 150 years before the first balloon flights, so the possibility of the object being man-made is also ruled out. The witness also claims that their small boat was pushed back against the tide about one mile (back to where they first set their boat in the water) while they watched the object in the sky. Could this be a “lost time” phenomena? Were they physically moved by the object in the sky? Could it be they were mistaken as to the tide because they were distracted by the unidentified object in the sky? This UFO close encounter may have been more close than originally thought. As to Winthrop’s trust of the witness, stating that he was “a sober, discreet man” he also included a footnote about Everell: “He was a man of reputation, activity and good estate in Boston many years afterwards. With his wife, Elizabeth, he had been received into Boston church 20 of July, 1634, being Nos. 239, 240. His will, made 11 December, 1682, proved 2 February following, is found in our Probate Registry, vol. VI. 400.” The following footnote about the sighting was added in the 1825 edition of Winthrop’s Journal: “This account of an ignis fatuus [pale light over marshy ground] may easily be believed on testimony less respectable than that which was adduced. Some operation of the devil, or other power beyond the customary agents of nature, was probably imagined by the relaters and hearers of that age, and the wonder of being carried a mile against the tide became important corroboration of the imagination. Perhaps they were wafted [carry lightly], during the two or three hours’ astonishment, for so moderate a distance, by the wind; but, if this suggestion be rejected, we might suppose, that the eddy [whirlpool], flowing always, in our rivers, contrary to the tide in the channel, rather than the meteor, carried their lighter back.” Muddy River is located at Back Bay Fens, opposite Cambridge, MA, and diagonally across from Charlestown. Back Bay wasn’t filled-in at that time, and a large area of open water existed in the river that was then called Broad Bay. The distance to Charlestown would have been more than two miles. The Charles River, prior to being dammed, had great tidal flow, and would drain much of Back Bay each day, and then replenish it. Muddy River likely had a larger volume of water flowing through it in 1639, but it is unlikely that a great eddy existed near its mouth. Thus, it is unusual for witnesses to assert they were unmoved by tidal flow (in a small boat) for more than two hours. Muddy River, the hamlet, eventually became the separate town of Brookline. Pigs and other cattle were stored there during summer while corn was growing in Boston. It is safe to deduce that the UFO witnesses had seen or heard swine on the same day they observed the great light. Thus, the lights resembled a common animal, making it probable they saw ignis fatuus mirage phenomena in the darkness. In any case, the event was observed by divers (many) people, and noteworthy enough for the Puritan Governor to document it in his private journal. It’s also interesting that Winthrop, an overtly religious man, would summarily dismiss any supernatural origins to the story he heard. Perhaps a glowing, flying pig didn’t fit into his understanding of scripture, so his thoughts didn’t go in that direction. Besides the one paragraph and two footnotes, Winthrop writes nothing more on the subject of North America’s first UFO sighting and possible alien abduction. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

NOVEMBER 1, 1995 ….. DOVER MISSOURI
A few months ago my fiance and I were watching a movie, I’m not sure what it was but there was a scene in the movie with a UFO. We got into a conversation about it and she asked me if I had ever seen a UFO. I proceeded to tell her the same story that I’m about to tell you that I had never told anybody because to be quite honest. As I was telling her the story, memories were coming to me that I had completely put in the back of my mind. In 1995 I lived in a small town called Dover, Missouri, about 60 miles east from Kansas City. I was living with a girlfriend at the time and her brother. My girlfriend worked the night shift so I would stay up late at night and wait for her to get home in the morning. For some reason we decided to go to Concordia Missouri to a truck stop for coffee. The truck stop was about 25 to 30 miles away from where we were. My girlfriend’s brother was driving his car and I was riding in the passenger seat. We left the house about 12:30 or 1 o’clock in the morning, and proceeded to drive east on Highway 24 leaving Dover towards the exit to go to Concordia. My girlfriend’s brother had some god awful rap music playing in the car and I was looking out the window watching for deer. As I am looking out the window he is talking but I’m really not paying attention to what he is saying because I see a bright light about a mile ahead 200 feet off the ground ahead of us. I was able to gauge the distance because I could see beyond the water tower that I was familiar with at an orchard on 24 Highway. I could clearly make out the red light was flashing on top of the water tower, and this light appeared to be just off to the side of it and above it. I watched the light for about a minute or two and I asked him if he saw what I saw. I can only describe it as a ball of light that changed colors. As we got closer I noticed that it was not moving it was stationary side by side with the light on top of the water tower. Keep in mind this water tower is in the middle of nowhere there are no buildings around for at least 15 to 20 miles besides the barn that was on the opposite side of the road and is about half the height of the water tower. I remember telling him its not moving its not moving. We stopped the car to get out and look at it and it started to move. This is the point of the story where my fiance asked me what happened next and to be honest until she asked me that question, I never thought about it, and I do not remember what happened next. My next memory is turning south onto the side road off of 24 and I’m not sure but I believe that it was much later when we arrived at the truck stop around 3 a.m. but it seemed perfectly normal to us at the time and remained that way until the night I was with my fiance 19 years later. As I have thought about it more the last month or so I remember flashes of images but I do not trust the images are accurate because as I said, I’m not sure what happened.

AUGUST 2014 ….. JASPER AND NEWTON COUNTY MISSOURI
During a period spanning just over two weeks in early to mid-August of 2014, three UFO sightings were reported from Jasper County and adjoining areas of its neighbor to the south, Newton County. In this column and in the near future, my intention is to inform my readers on all three of them. (My personal investigation into one incident of the trio is still in progress, and additional information on the other two may also be obtained.) The first occurred at 5:12 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 2, and the lone witness was a Missouri State Trooper driving north on Rangeline Road in the course of routine patrol. (Margie Kay, the Mutual UFO Network assistant state director, who had interviewed him, provided a transcript which was then posted on the UFO Casebook website, one of the best.) The officer first observed an unusual light in the northeastern sky, not far above the horizon. His first thought was that he was seeing a helicopter, since it was obviously too low to be a fixed wing aircraft. Then as it got closer, he was able to make out a triangular or teardrop-shaped craft with illuminated windows in the upper portion, through which he could see indistinct movement that he assumed to be passengers or crew members. The craft was estimated to be in excess of 100-feet in width and perhaps a fourth of that in height. At its nearest point to the witness, a distance of approximately 50 feet, red and yellow lights of various sizes were noted on the underside and a low hum could be heard emanating from the UFO. There was also evidence of a minor electromagnetic effect occurring at the moment the odd craft abruptly pivoted to fly off back to the east (at an undescribed speed) until it was no longer visible. At the moment the UFO performed its 180-degree rotation there was an approximate 15 second burst of static from the car’s radio. Adding to the mystery was the fact that the patrol car was stationary in the roadway after the object departed, although he did not remember stopping or even intending to do so, and the encounter had not seemed to last for 15 minutes as the vehicle’s clock indicated. (Before we take off into any wild speculation based on these seeming discrepancies, it should be noted that the excitement of the encounter at such close range could have easily been the culprit.) Finally, in an element that is often reported in such cases, the trooper watched a jet come from the east, making a wide looping curve to the north before returning to the east. If it was not searching for the unknown craft, its presence and maneuvers were quite a coincidence. The investigation into this potentially important encounter is ongoing. MUFON is still delving into it, and I have put out “feelers” to some of my own reliable sources in the area in an effort to not only learn more about the trooper’s experience but to possibly locate other possible corroborating witnesses.
Less than two weeks after this undoubtedly unnerving encounter, a more typical event took place in the community of Sarcoxie, a relatively short distance southwest of the earlier sighting. The lone witness (gender not specified) had brought their dog outside and noticed a bright white light in the east-southeastern sky. It continued to grow in size until it reached the point of appearing as a luminous white sphere approximately one quarter the angular size of a full moon. (The witness’ wording seemed to indicate uncertainty as to whether the orb actually increased in physical size or simply appeared to from the object coming closer.) After moving a short distance to the south, the UFO reversed the process and became smaller and smaller until it was no longer visible. The entire incident had transpired in about one minute.

DISC SHAPED UFO CRAFT SPOTTED OVER ALABAMA
NOVEMBER 2, 2014 ……. HUGULEY ALABAMA
A disc-shaped UFO was reported by an Alabama witness at Huguley. The mysterious object had two bright, tubular-shaped lights, according to the testimony filed at witness reporting database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). The report, which is lodged under Case 61372, states that the classic-shaped UFO hovered over nearby treetops. The witness first saw the object when he was eastbound on the street near Huguley around 3 a.m. on 2 November 2014. He saw the mysterious object going down at slow speed from the west. The object hovered above treetops along the side of the road for a few seconds. He said that during the strange event, he was on the straight part of the highway and no other traffic, so he clearly saw the object without distractions. The report says that the witness saw the white lights very clearly, which were side-by-side on the bottom of the UFO and appeared to extend its whole length. However, the witness admitted that he did not saw the outline of the craft because it blended with the dark sky. The witness described the temperature as cool and mild with 45 or 50-degree range and it was only partly cloudy during that time. The object hovered for perhaps 5 seconds before it went up into the southeast sky with tremendous speed and quickly disappeared, the report says. The witness explained that the disappearance was very quick like it swoop upwards without changing direction and disappeared. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

UFO CRAFT LINKED TO MASS BLACK OUT OF SEPTEMBER 1965
In a Nov. 19, 1965, Ontario Hydro Hydroscope article, system supervising engineer Jim Harris was at a loss to explain the incident. “It’s incredible! I would have said this was impossible if I hadn’t seen the evidence,” he said. Just two weeks before the blackout, on Sept. 22, 1965, in an article entitled “Many report seeing two UFOs,” the Gazette chronicled the activity near the power plants. “Dozens of persons Tuesday night watched two unidentified flying objects moving and hovering over this area for more than an hour,” the article stated. “The objects, bright lights which changed color, were below cloud level and remained at a fairly low level during most of the period they were observed. “Observers said the objects were not helicopters or conventional aircraft. At one point, about 8 p.m., the two objects, which had been widely separated when viewed earlier, approached each other on a collision course until they ‘teamed up’ and moved off close together toward Buffalo,” the article added. The objects were first sighted “on the Canadian side of the river, at a point opposite Lewiston.” In other words, over Queenston and the Sir Adam Beck plant. Among the witnesses named in the article were State Trooper John Riehl, Alden residents Roselle Simon and Leonard Butler, and V.D. Price and Raymond Bright, employees of the American Standard Division in North Tonawanda. “This was not a satellite. Satellites travel in straight lines and within a few minutes they are gone,” Bright told the Gazette. “This hung in the sky for about half an hour. It would move off in one direction and then stop. Then it would change direction and move off again.” The relationship between the blackout and reported UFO activity wasn’t lost on the scientific community. In a statement prepared for hearings held on the blackout by the Federal Power Commission, University of Arizona physicist Dr. James McDonald contended that magnetic fields accompanying UFOs could cause sudden power surges and could, theoretically, trigger a blackout. Writing about the event on April 2, 1968, Gazette reporter Joe Donaldson recalled the reports on the night of the blackout. “After the big blackout, spokesmen for the power firms denied a strange light was spotted over the Beck Station the night of Nov. 9. Since then, however, they have admitted that sightings were reported by hundreds of people,” the veteran newsman wrote. But gradually, the “broken two-dollar switch” theory as to the cause of the disaster became the accepted version of events. This would not mark the end of credible reports of UFOs in Niagara Falls, however. On Aug. 4, 1966, the Gazette reported “Bright, high-flying, fast moving objects observed during the night and similarly described by three Niagara Falls residents.” This time the witnesses were Mrs. George Haberle of the Parkway Apartments and 91st Street residents Russell Sorenberger and Bill Nelson. Ironically, attempts by the paper to reach Capt. Harry Meir, chief of operations and training at Niagara Falls Air Base, were unsuccessful because Meir had been in Erie, Pa., investigating another UFO report. Two Niagara Falls city policemen and a former Air Force radar chief had their own close encounters over a 48-hour period in August 1967.
According to an Aug. 25, 1967, Gazette article, the two officers, Patrolmen Anthony Caraglin and David Greene, saw a pair of UFOs while patrolling at 19th Street and Mackenna Avenue. They filed an official report of the incident. “We saw two objects in the sky — one object went in an easterly direction then went northeasterly. As the object went out of sight it appeared to give off different colored lights. While the object was in sight it was a solid white light and appeared to be round. “Object Two was the same as Object One but went from south to north and went out of sight. Both objects were in view for approximately 15 minutes and appeared to be very high,” the report stated. Howard Kay of Youngstown was working at DuPont that night. An eight-year Air Force radar chief, he told the Gazette the object he saw over the Niagara River near Buffalo Avenue looked like “an inverted cereal bowl and was lit up.” Perhaps predictably, USAF Information Officer Thomas White said he knew nothing about the UFOs. “I have checked with the U.S. Air Force Station in Lockport, and the 763rd Radar Squadron there reports no objects logged by their radar screens at these times,” he told the Gazette. Eight months later, on April 2, 1968, no fewer than three NFPD patrolmen reported UFOs from two separate locations The pulsating lights hovered for nearly an hour in the vicinity of the Beck Station, the officers said. Patrolmen Thomas Shumway and William Wells watched the lights from Lewiston Road and Hyde Park Boulevard. “They were like something I had never seen before,” Shumway told the Gazette. “They were in formation and they were pulsating.” Shumway said the red, white and blue lights did not come from an airplane and were motionless until they suddenly shot away to the northwest at a tremendous rate of speed. At the same time, Patrolman Richard Adkins confirmed the lights were hovering across the Niagara River from the Robert Moses Power Plant and near the Beck Station. He said the lights were about 1,000 feet in the air and that, from time to time, a red streak of light would pass through the formation. While strange lights are still occasionally reported in the Niagara skies, it appears that 1965 to 1968 represented something of a golden age for UFO sightings here. And in the presence of so much documentation and credible testimony by trained observers, it seems difficult to deny that something was going on. What — exactly — the mysterious objects were will likely never be known. It is interesting to note that the Air Force employed a device to disrupt electrical power in the city of Belgrade during the Kosovo war. Could some early testing of a similar device have resulted in the 1965 blackout? – www.niagarafallsreporter.com NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

STRANGE UFO CRAFT WITNESSED OVER MANY STATES
MARCH 15, 1995
Traditionally, the Center identifies a given sighting by assigning to it the name of the nearest city, or other geographical feature or landmark. It the case of the cluster of sighting reports we received over the Hotline on the evening of March 15, l995, so many states and cities were involved, we are going to borrow a line from Shakespeare regarding the possible perils of that date…The first call we received was from Cannis City, FL, reporting that two males were walking along railroad tracks near that town and were stunned to see a luminous, white disc-shaped object streak across the sky, pass below or near several aircraft in the night sky, appear to ascend back up into the sky, and disappear to the north. The report seemed to be sincere, and bore several of the hallmarks that the Center knows to be characteristic of legitimate reports. However, it was so much like so many other reports the Hotline receives on a regular basis that we were not yet alerted to the possibility that other reports were soon to follow…..The third call we received minutes later from a gentleman in Jackson, TN, who reported witnessing a blue-green “cloud of light” hovering in the night sky. He had seen it streak from the northwest beneath, he thought, almost solid overcast, hover for approximately 30 or 40 seconds, during which time he could almost see some kind of object apparently imbedded in the cloud of light. The object then began to drift generally to the southwest, the caller reported, at which time it belched out a large “cloud” of sparks, and then streaked southwest, quickly disappearing from sight. Minutes later, we received a call from a sergeant in the Missouri Highway Patrol communications headquarters in Jefferson City (“Troop F”). The officer had been on duty that night at his station on the east side of Jefferson City, when together with two Jefferson City police officers, he witnessed an intensely bright, green light hover in the sky over Jefferson City for approximately 5-7 seconds. The object began to descend slowly, at which point its color changed to yellow, and then it simply disappeared from sight instantly, like a light being switched off. The patrol officer reported that their “911” emergency dispatch telephone line had taken many reports from citizens regarding the same object, and one caller reported that his cellular phone and radio went dead while the object was near his vehicle. While I was speaking with the patrol officer, another call came in from a retired commercial airline pilot, who resides in Vienna, VA. He and his wife were driving back to their home in Vienna, just a few miles west of Washington, D.C., after having picked up their daughter at National Airport. Their daughter is an airline pilot for the same airline that her father had flown for, and from which he had retired. As they were driving west (at a heading of approximately 250 degrees magnetic) on Westford Avenue (?), approaching the exit for Chain Bridge Road, the father and daughter both simultaneously observed an bright object, apparently at some distance from them, streak down out of the sky almost directly ahead of them, descending at approximately 70-80 degrees from the horizontal plane. They both expected to observe some kind of explosion when the object reached ground level, but nothing happened! Rather than explode, the object simply disappeared from sight–uneventfully– when it reached the horizon…
The next call came from Fairmont, WV, perhaps a hundred miles (or more) to the northwest of Vienna, VA. A young woman called to report that, after visiting with her mother in Westover, WV, she had just sat in the driver’s seat of her car to leave, when a bright light had streaked silently over her car at a breath-taking velocity. She added that as she glanced up at the light, she thought she could make out the outline of an “egg-shaped” object imbedded in the orb of bright light. The back portion of the object was bright yellow. Many other calls were received that night, and over subsequent days, regarding what appears to us to be the same sighting. Thousands (!) of calls reportedly were received by radio stations and “911” facilities in St. Louis, MO, after the object passed over that city, and we received two very convincing call from western Illinois, as well. In summary, it appears that one or more egg-shaped objects, radiating intensely bright green, blue-green, and yellow light, and periodically spewing out a cloud of sparks, streaked over at least seven states, stopping from time to time, and the whole event occurred in a matter of minutes!! I would like to close discussion of the case by extending congratulations to Mr. Tom Eckhardt, and the other UFO investigators, of the Acteon Group in St. Louis for their excellent investigation of this case. From our vantage point, their investigation and documentation of the events that occurred over their state on March 15 was second to none, and we are grateful for their wonderful written report regarding the incident.

J. ALLEN HYNEK FROM DEBUNKER TO BELIEVER
J. Allen Hynek, a once UFO skeptic, began classifying the most compelling and promising scientific cases of UFO sightings and alien encounters. As he studied and categorized the various UFO/Alien cases, Hynek began to become less of a skeptic. It his research and expertise that led to the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which is considered to be one of the most accurate portrayals of alien/UFO eyewitness accounts in a fictional movie. Just about any investigator (UFO, Criminal, Paranormal, etc.) will tell you that the eyewitness account of an event is normally the most unreliable piece of evidence gathered during an investigation. Yet, often times, it is the only piece of evidence that investigators have to go on. Moreover, the more complex or traumatic an event is, the more difficult it is to rely on these accounts. Additionally, it is even more difficult to categorize and organize these accounts into a coherent fashion which would allow others to study these accounts. This difficulty in categorization definitely holds true for eyewitness accounts of UFO sightings and alien encounters. The difficulty lies in how different each eyewitness account is from one another. As the UFO Casebook put it: “Witnesses to UFOs report many different shapes and sizes; from discs to cigars to triangles and almost anything you could imagine.” Such varying accounts make it almost impossible to categorize them into any sort of neat classification system. However, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a UFO skeptic, set out to do so. According to Hynek, even though UFO sightings and alien encounters vastly differ from one another, there is usually some common thread that can tie various sightings/encounters together, such as distance, time of day, shape of object, etc. He began looking at eyewitness accounts under a new light. Once he made his break with the Air Force, the former skeptic began to study these various accounts on his own; still categorizing them in his home-grown classification system. To date, the Hynek system is the most widely used UFO/Alien sighting classification system. Also see the UFO Casebook article: The Hynek Classification System.

HUGH TRIANGLE BLOCKS OUT THE STARS IN INDIANA
10-8-14 …… NEWBURGH INDIANA
Shape: Triangle – Duration: less than 1 minute. Very large triangle shaped craft over southern Indiana. My wife and I watch for shooting stars several times a week. Tonight we saw an orange light coming quickly from east to west. As it got closer it shifted into three lights. It appeared to be 200-300 feet long and maybe 100 feet wide. It made some sound, but was not loud like a jet. It looked similar to jets flying in formation, but when it was directly overhead we could see it was solid and blocked out stars as it passed in front of them. It was maybe half the altitude that the planes fly above our home. It was maybe half the altitude that the planes fly above our home. When it was roughly 1/2 mile past us it made a 90 degree turn and went northeast quickly. My 14 year old son also saw it. His take was it looked like a star destroyer from Star Wars. The two lights in the rear were rectangular and were taller than they were wide. The light on the front was thin and horizontal. This all happened with a very bright full moon so we could easily see the shape. Needless to say we are all freaked a little. We got on google to see if anyone else saw anything and found this site.

ENORMOUS LIGHT CRAFT WITNESSED BY MANY OVER SCOTLAND
JANUARY 14, 1991 …… EDINBURGH SCOTLAND
It had been a cold cloudy night on the 14th of January in 1991 in Edinburgh, Scotland. At the time I was 10 years old living with my father who was a soldier and my mother a Berliner (German). We lived in an army estate overlooking Edinburgh City. It all started when our upstairs neighbor had informed me and the other 10 families in our block of flats that he had seen UFO activity on the night of the 13th and that the lights had returned. I initially dismissed the lights as the spotlights on Edinburgh castle which were occasionally tested and shone into the sky but the lights were indeed different. Everyone in the block went to look out their windows. What I observed was one bright white light that was of considerable height above Edinburgh Castle that gradually split into five lights that formed into formation like of 5 on a dice. As they floated in our direction the middle light turned red and the other lights moved in synchro-nised movements and patterns. Our observation point was about 10 miles from Edinburgh castle itself, which was on the south side of the city. At one point people were getting nervous as I could see from my own parent’s behaviour. The lights closed in on our location. It appeared that whatever the lights were, they had knowledge that we were observing them because as they floated above us they seemed to have grown in considerable size. I judged the object to be larger than a 747. As we gazed out our windows at approximately a 60 degree angle we noticed that nearby animals were alarmed and acting distressed. Dog’s barked excessively and other pets acted strangely. At the age of just 10 I was more curious then afraid. My stepfather went outside and estimated the size of the object as he himself couldn’t explain what the lights were. The object then moved slowly away and my mother and I ran to the bedroom window to get a better look at it. My curiosity got the better of me and I went and got my flashlight that I’d got for Christmas while my mother stood at the window. When I returned, I pointed the flashlight at the object and then turned it on as if to signal. At exactly the same moment I switched the flashlight on the hovering lights went out and immediately disappeared in front of my eyes or so it seemed. My mother and I were confused and bewildered that it had suddenly disappeared at the moment I shone my flashlight at it. The whole encounter lasted approximately 25 minutes and as far as I am aware the incident was never reported to the base Commanding Officer and nothing was heard about the incident again.

MOTHER AND 6 CHILDRENS CLOSE ENCOUNTER IN WASHINGTON
DECEMBER 29,1994 …….. LA CROSSE WASHINGTON
At approximately 2145 hours on Thursday night, December 29, 1994, a mother (with her six children) was driving north on the Zaring Cut-Off Road in southeastern Washington State, just 5 miles north of the Snake River. Several of her children suddenly started shouting, and called the mother’s attention to three extraordinarily bright lights above a recently harvested wheat field off to the right (east) side of the road. At first they thought the lights were the landing lights of an airliner at low altitude, perhaps making a forced landing in the field, and flying directly toward them. Then one of the older children suggested the lights were the headlights on a “semi” (an 18-wheel truck), but they almost immediately realized that description didn’t fit, either. Suddenly, the family began to see the objects that were attached to the three lights, and they were awed by the vision! They saw three coal black, delta-shaped craft, with articulating structures on their noses, from which the blinding lights were radiating. They appeared to be scanning the ground ahead of them. The objects, apparently locked in tight, unwavering formation. The mother reported that the objects were right above their car, they gave off a barely perceptible humming sound (“…like an electric refrigerator…”), and they were close enough that a “person with a good throwing arm could have hit them with a rock.” When I talked with her on January 01, 1995, (Our first call of the year), she was still seemingly upset by the experience. She volunteered that she was frightened to either drive, or even go outside, after dark, which is not uncommon among people who have had recent UFO experiences. It drifted across the road at very low speed, slowly turned left (south) and proceeded south parallel to the road the family was on. Note: The above image is a rendering.
