Officially listed by the USAF as a 'true unknown', the Cherry Creek UFO case certainly has a few intriguing aspects and involves members of the Butcher family witnessing a very strange object hovering over (and landing on) their farm in Cherry Creek, New York on August 19th, 1965.

The UFO was described as a large, elliptical, metallic object (50 feet long and 20 feet thick) which gave off a reddish vapor as it hovered above the trees near their barn -one of the main witnesses Harold Butcher stated the object looked 'like two turkey platters put together' and emitted a 'steady beeping noise' -it's also worth noting that radio equipment, tractor machinery and animal behaviour were all said to have been affected whilst the object was in the area.



Witness sketch:






Witnesses: Mrs. William Butcher, son Harold, 17, and children. A large elliptical object, with a reddish vapor underneath, came close to the ground, then shot straight up into the clouds a few seconds later. Radio drowned out by static, a tractor engine stopped. When the object was on the ground, a steady beeping sound could be heard. Afterwards, a strange odor was noticed, and the next day, a purplish liquid, 2"x2" marks and patches of singed grass were found at the site. A bull bellowed and tried to break its bonds.


NICAP Case Directory



After the object departed at high speed leaving a strange odour and a glowing green colour in the clouds, it was then seen by multiple witnesses as it reappeared 30 minutes later and circled overhead -at this point, the mother of the Butcher family then contacted the authorities which began a series of investigations by NICAP, the USAF and the New York State Police which also found additional physical trace evidence at the site.



Object:



The object was metallic-looking, football shaped, and estimated to be 50 feet long and 20 feet thick. A reddish vapor was emitted from the bottom area and when the object rose, the red vapor shot toward the ground and bounced back toward the object. The clouds had a greenish glow where the object had vanished. At 9 p.m. the object was seen again by several people at the farm. It now had a glowing yellow vapor trail. The clouds still appeared to have a green glow. State police were called and investigated and the Air Force investigated.


Cat. 3: This incident involved EM effects. A tractor motor shut down, the barn radio and house radio had static-like interference but a telephone between the barn and house apparently worked.

Cat. 6: Physical traces included an odor, ground marks, a purple liquid, and grass bent over and singed.

Cat. 5: Physiological effects included Harold and his younger sister having upset stomachs, and the cows giving less than normal amounts of milk.

The late Richard H. Hall, a longtime member of NICAP (1958-1969), is interviewed in this episode. Hall also recounts the story of the relationship between the civilian UFO group, NICAP and the U.S. Air Force (Project Blue Book).

Today, many don't know that there are lots of good cases like these, close range, several witnesses, physical trace evidence, not only on the ground, but on the witnesses, verified by medical doctors. I was recently reviewing the case in Ontario Canada, 1967 I think it was. this guy gets burned by the landed craft which also leaves a saucer nest. The man's wounds are like radiation but are not radiation, leaving medical experts baffled.

Karl, I had long forgot that, years ago, there were many cases which kept researchers like Ted Philips, busy analysing. Saucer nests (not crop circles) burns, electromagnetic effects on police cars, damaged vehicles and people's clothing (Betty Hill) and injured people. Indisputable hard evidence. But --it seems to me-- that these types of events no longer occurr.

maybe because as our technology has improved over the years "they" have become more wary of us?

There also do not seem to be as many close encounters as before, they seem to be keeping their distance as if they are learning that their craft can do some harm to us.

Good post, this is an interesting sighting.

The good old NICAP vs. Blue Book battle is fun to hear about

Thanks for the replies, it certainly is an interesting case and reminds me a bit of this one from Wisconsin ten years later - NICAP's Dan Wilson has written a piece below suggesting there may be radar evidence for the Cherry Creek sightings and there's also a good newspaper article here with some more info (pdf file).



Close Encounter Has Radar Evidence

Aug. 19, 1965

Lockport / Cherry Creek, New York


Between 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. local time, a momentary target was picked up by an AN/FPS-6 Long Range Height Finder Radar of the 763rd Radar Squadron at Lockport AFS New York. The target was sighted near the upper limit of the radar. This system had a maximum range of 200 nautical miles and a height-finding capacity of 75,000 feet within an angle limit of minus 2 to plus 32 degrees.

Cheers.

INCIDENT AT CHERRY CREEK STILL UNEXPLAINED 35 YEARS LATER


Thirty-five years ago this week, an unidentified flying object allegedly landed in Western New York. The incident, which received sparse coverage from Buffalo-area news media, was investigated extensively by a civilian UFO research organization, the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP).
