The 1965 Exeter, New Hampshire UFO story is one of the most interesting and well documented investigation cases in ufology history and if your not
familiar with it and like to read about older UFO cases then i highly recommend this story to you. it really is one of the great UFO stories from the
sixties and is just one of many that were occurring in the upper northeast part of the U.S. during this time period.
According to the report, a man named Norman Muscarello was walking home late at night and was terrorized by an ominous UFO that emerged from the woods
nearby that seemingly interatcted with him. he described the main object as being a very bright light with five red lights that were close together on
the craft. after the initial bizzare encounter he had with the strange object Norman found a ride to the local Police station to report what had
happened. one of the police officers then drove out to the site with Norman and while there, two Police officers witnessed the object flying around.
they also described the UFO as a large object with four or five bright red lights.
1:30 A.M. While hitchhiking home in the early hours of September 3, teenager Norman Muscarello was terrorized by a large object with four or five
bright red lights that approached from nearby woods and hovered over a field near the road. He went to the Exeter police station, pale and shaken, and
reported the incident. Officer Eugene Bertrand drove him back to the field to investigate. About an hour earlier Bertrand had come across a woman
parked on Route 101. "She was real upset," he said, "and told me that a red glowing object had chased hen" When he was called to investigate
Muscarello's report, the earlier incident caused him to pay attention. At first Bertrand and Muscarello saw nothing, but when Bertrand flashed a
light around the field, a huge dark object with red flashing lights rose up over the trees, moving back and forth, tilted, and came toward
Exeter Patrolmen Eugene Bertrand, Jr. and David Hunt, and Norman Muscarello saw a large silent, dark, elliptical object with a row of 5 bright red
lights oriented about 60° to horizontal, move slowly and erratically around houses and trees at 100 ft height to SE [or 60-70 ft height 100 ft away],
lighting up the ground and houses in red light, while lights blinked in sequence; falling leaf motion. Farm animals very noisy. Disappeared at 160°
magnetic after covering about 135° arc
I felt kind of foolish walking out here on private property after midnight, looking for a flying saucer!"
Bertrand then suggested that we go out to the field so that he could show me where he and Norman had been. We got out of the car and strolled into the
field toward a corral.
"We walked out about this far," he said "I waved my flashlight back and forth, and then Norman shouted----'Look out, here it comes!' I swung
around and could hardly believe what I was seeing. There was this huge, dark object as big as that barn over there with red flashing lights on it. It
barely cleared that tree right there, and it was moving back and forth."
"What did you guys do when you saw that thing?" I asked.
"Well, it seemed to tilt and come right at us. Norman told me later that I was yelling, 'I'll shoot it! I'll shoot it!' I did automatically drop
on one knee and drew my service revolver, but I didn't shoot. I do remember suddenly thinking that it would be unwise to fire at it, so I yelled to
Norman to run for the cruiser, but he just froze in his tracks. I practically had to drag him back!"
"How close was the object to you then?" I asked.
"It seemed to be about one hundred feet up and about one hundred feet away. All I could see at that point was bright red with sort of a halo effect.
I thought we'd be burned alive, but it gave off no heat and I didn't hear any noise. I called Dave Hunt on the radio. He was already on his way out
here and arrived in just a few minutes. Whatever it was, it must have really scared the horses in that barn."

U.S. Air Force personel and Allen Hynek from project Blue Book investigated the incident and quickly dismissed the encounter as a misidentified
airplane or sometype of weather phenomena. as you will read in the report the Air Force personel did not want anyone to know about this and went out
of their way to try and coverup this story.
the Police officers were very upset about the explanation being given out by the Air Force because it made them look as if they were not credible or
qualified observers. the Police officers persistance finally lead to the Pentigon officially admitting this case was about an unidentified object.
Blue Book Note
here are some highlights of the story that you should be aware of...
a Woman reported the object chased her !
A similar report substantiated his story. Earlier, Bertrand had come upon a lone woman parked on the side of Route 101 near an overpass two miles
She said a huge, silent, red and brilliantly glowing airborne object had chased her from the town of Epping about 12 miles away. It had been only a
few feet from her car before it departed at a tremendous speed and disappeared.
"Pease sent out a major and a lieutenant on the fourth, and they asked the police if they would just keep their UFO information confidential. But
the police told the Air Force officers that the Manchester Union Leader reporter had already been there and got the story. The Air Force actually sent
the lieutenant around Exeter to buy up all the newspapers with the sighting story, which I thought, was ludicrous. Then the officers went on site and
investigated, asking farmers if their cows were giving the same amount of milk, the chickens still producing the same amount of eggs. And there were
rumors that they investigated a burned area in the field and then asked Carl Dining to bulldoze his field."
there's more to the story...

the Police officers were in my opinion qualified observers that would be able distinguish the difference between airplanes in the sky and an object
near their police car wich means they did see a UFO and that means all The Witnesses were telling the truth about what they had seen.
so the question is what was it ? and why was the Air Force so concerned about not letting this story get out to the public ? the only two explanations
i can think of are, some type of secret military craft or an Alien Spacecraft.
what do you think happened on September 3, 1965 in Exeter, New Hampshire ?
