The Claremont, New Hampshire sighting
On July 30, 1968, in Claremont, New Hampshire, a couple, getting ready to retire soon, have recently completed their new home, which was located in
the Robert's Hill District, in Claremont. While sitting in their home, the couple noticed a group of lights moving around in a field which was in the
back of the their house. After noticing the unusual lights, the couple quickly moved to the window to take a closer look at them
What they saw when they had took a closer look at the lights, was a very unusual thing; instead of separate lights moving about the field, they saw a
dome-shaped UFO directly above the field. At this point, the time was about 2:30 a.m. The bottom of the UFO was brightly lit, with the light from the
object lighting up more than 20 feet of the ground around the UFO.
There was a sound being emitted from the UFO, similar to that of a transformer, or substation.
Two members of the New Hampshire NICAP Subcommittee, a husband and his wife, scrutinized the sighting, or alien encounter, if you will, along with the
Claremont police. The couple who witnessed the sighting had reported that the object hovered over the field for more than two hours, staying in the
area until 4:30 a.m, before leaving.
As the object was either preparing to leave, or was already leaving, the sound that was being emitted, which was similar to
a transformer, or even bees, became much louder, with the light on the underside of the object becoming much brighter, which it then started moving to
the west before moving completely out of sight.
The Milford, Ohio sighting
(The object looked similar to the one simulated in this picture.)On February
11, 1967, in Milford, Ohio, Michael McKee and Sharon Hildebrand, one a Pennsylvania Railroad employee, the other, his friend, saw a very unusual,
bright light located somewhere in the woods. Since one of the two was a railroad employee, he had a railroad light nearby, which he used to move
through the woods to get closer to the object. As they moved closer, they had noticed that the object was actually not just a glowing, bright light in
the woods, but actually a glowing, oval-shaped, object, or UFO, which it might have been at some points, if, and when it was actually in the air. The
reason I say this is explained next. Not only was it oval shaped, the object also had unusual, tubular, appendage-like object that the UFO might have
actually been suspended on, so it was at the time, on the ground. So calling it a UFO would not have been proper, as it was not "flying".
After reaching a distance of about 100 feet to the object, they estimated it's size, giving it's diameter a length of roughly 30 feet in length.
Mckee had noticed that the object was metallic in nature, as when he had shone his railroad lantern towards the object, it's surface gave off a
metallic reflection, of sorts. Hilderbrand reported that while Mckee was shining his lantern towards the object, a row of lights were visible;
however, as soon as Mckee had shone his light in a different direction, the row of lights were no longer visible, possibly because of the relatively
low-light conditions at the time, as this was around the very early morning. The two became frightened by the object, likely after seeing the row of
lights disappear as soon as the lantern was turned away from the object, or craft. The two then contacted Leonard Stringfield, who was an advisor at
NICAP (National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena), who suggested that they notify the police regarding their unusual sighting.
After some time, the police met the two, and one of the officers went with Mckee and Hilderbrand to the area where the object was seen, at about 3:30
a.m. At the area of the sighting, the three saw "splintered tree limbs and twigs" roughly around the area of where the object had been seen, or
landed, if you will. To investigate this, Stringfield called his friend who was an engineer the day after to scrutinize the area of where the object
landed. The engineer reported that the "splintered tree limbs and twigs" that they saw were "pressed down by a heavy-weight."
After this, it had been reported that on the day before the sighting, many people, up to seven actually, in many different places; Madeira, Kenwood,
and Blue Ash, Ohio, as well as Wyoming.
A glowing object with a diameter of roughly 20 feet in length was spotted by a woman, at around 11:45 p.m., not too far from Kentwood, Ohio. Another
object, this time having a reddish, glowing light, was spotted in around the same place as the former sighting, at around 12:15 a.m. by a couple.
There was yet again, another sighting reported at around the same time, with the object having an appearance similar to the first object seen in
Milford One in Blue Ash, Ohio, and another in Wyoming. People who had seen the two objects describe them as having a red, possibly orange, glowing
Stringfield had also learned that Frank Guber, who was a patroller in Lockland, Ohio, had seen a glowing, red object move through a large part of the
sky, while also hovering for a short time, before changing direction, and moving out of sight.
The Yorktown, Iowa sighting
On April 23, 1966, Ronald E. Johnson, who was a farmer living in
Yorktown, Iowa, had heard a very loud noise, similar to a roaring sound, while he was sleeping, at around 2:10 a.m. He woke up and went to see what
was going on by looking through the window of his house. What he saw, was a 60 foot long, cigar-shaped UFO, settling down in a field roughly 50 feet
away. From this distance, the object would have been very close to Johnson, thus giving him a close view of the cigar shaped UFO; however, at the
time, there was a light rain with fog in the area so it might have been hard to see the details of the object, but nonetheless, Johnson got many
details of the craft.
As the object was slowly starting to reach the ground, the loudness of the roaring was not as it was a short time before, and the roaring sound
eventually stopped. A red, very bright, light was seen on one of the ends of the object. One the other end, which was farther way, Johnson had seen
two blue lights, which he reported had a diameter of about 8 inches in length. The object also was resting on a row of nearly 20, "leg" like
appendages. The object emitted an amber glow, haze, or light, perhaps similar to the glow of an ionized gas, from a portion of it's underside as
