MAY 12, 1981 ………… TEWKSBURY NEW JERSEY
Whether or not there is a connection, a very similar incident would unfold just over 24 hours earlier on the evening of 12th May in Tewksbury, New Jersey.
That evening, at around 9:30 pm, Earl and Pat Richards, along with their two adult sons, Earl Jr. and Wayne, were watching television when the set suddenly switched off and the lights of the house dimmed.
When the two sons ran to the window, each could see “dozens of green, blue, and red lights” overhead. What’s more, they were seemingly “hovering around a huge airborne vehicle”. This huge mothership-type craft also glowed with dozens of lights. By this time, the older Richards had also ventured to the window to see what the fuss was.
The witnesses would state the object was around the size of “four or five Boeing 747 planes”. And was a definite elongated, or cigar, shape with no sign of any wings. Perhaps of even more interest was how slowly the object moved, especially for its size.
The object made its way over the neighborhood and then out into the city after that. As it did, lights in houses and buildings underneath would flicker, and even turn off. While most properties would have their power back to normal within minutes, others were in darkness for almost two hours. Perhaps of interest are the comments of the Jersey Central Power and Light Company. They would claim that a “transformer had burnt out” but declined to give a reason for it.
For the Richards family, and anyone else who witnessed the aerial anomaly, the reason for the transformer burning out was perfectly obvious. And, in terms of the Texoma incident, it is certainly not that much of a stretch of the imagination that the sightings are of the same craft. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
