It's much easier to turn your back on a possible UFO sighting if it was just one person claiming to see an unexplained flying object. However, when a large number of people report spotting something strange in the sky, it's hard to ignore. In this article, you will encounter a variety of cases where more than a few people claim to have witnessed a UFO.
Numerous residents in a small village in Pennsylvania called Kecksburg reported to have seen an object described as streaking green fire across the sky before it crashed in a local field â€“ around 40 miles from Pittsburgh. On December 9, 1965, the craft was reported to have crashed before 6pm in the evening. A local resident named Bill Bulebush was working on his car when he spotted the object. He described it as looking like an acorn shape that was about two times the size of a Volkswagen Beetle. He said that the object slowly glided before making a U-turn and going down.
When a local fireman named James Romansky came upon the downed craft, he said that it had writing around the bottom ring that resembled the hieroglyphics of the Egyptians. He was only able to examine the craft for about 15 minutes before government and military officials arrived and ordered everyone to exit the scene. Armed guards were then placed around the perimeter to make sure that no one came onto the site.
Some said that the craft belonged to the Soviets and was a satellite, but a UFO researcher named Clifford Stone was able to speak with former Soviet officials and they insisted that the object did not belong to them. When an investigative journalist named Leslie Keen filed a Freedom of Information Act suit in 2009, NASA revealed that documentation associated with the case had gone missing.
Hudson Valley, New York
From 1982 to 1986, the UFO activity reported to have happened in the Hudson Valley region is astonishing â€“ gaining the reputation of experiencing one of the largest clusters of incidents in history. The suburban area (located about an hour's drive north of New York City) is believed to have had more than 5,000 UFO sightings within that time period. However, it was on March 24, 1983 that involved the highest number of people. More than 300 residents called the hotline for a local UFO organization to report seeing a large V-shaped collection of lights that slowly moved about the sky. They reported that the objects did not make any noise as they moved.
Some of the witnesses were able to get a close look at the sight â€“ describing the object as being a craft large enough to be called a 'flying city.' Another description of the sighting was a row of six or seven highly bright lights that blinked on and off. They were in different colors, such as red, blue, while and green. The lights were stationary and did not resemble any familiar aircraft. Some people were able to watch the object for up to five minutes or longer.
