1979 Dec 29 - RADAR Operators Correlate Police Sightings
N. Illinois
... ...
RADAR operators reported "We had a call from the sheriff's department at 11:00 PM, and they said they were looking at a UFO. We looked on the radar and observed the target in the area westbound, very fast. There were three controllers and myself. We watched the target and it stopped, changed direction to a north heading, went north for about three miles, stopped again, went southwest for five miles, stopped again, went westbound right up to the Mississippi River, stopped there, then continued westbound. It covered 54 miles in three-and-one half minutes, plus it stopped four times. We were receiving a strong return. There were no known aircraft in the area. I have never seen an aircraft at that speed turn that fast. The stops were very abrupt and the turns were very abrupt. I don't know of any airplane that can turn that fast. We picked up a second object at 11:04 PM and it proceeded southwest until it was directly over the Mississippi River at which time it turned southbound and paralleled right over the river for about half-a-mile and moved away to the west-southwest. After we picked up the second object, I checked back with the sheriff's department and was advised that they had observed another object. The position the sheriff gave me correlated with the targets we saw."

In North-Western Minnesota on August 27th, 1979, near Red River Valley, at 1:40am, a Deputy Sheriff saw a very bright UFO while driving. He lost conciousness and woke up with his head on the steering wheel. The car had skidded on the highway and was now facing the opposite direction. He radioed headquarters at 2:19am, reporting that something had hit his car. One headlight had been blown out but he did not know why. The clock in his car and his wristwatch were now 14 minutes behind. Under medical examination, he showed an extreme sensitivity to light.

1978 May 13 - Police Officer Manuel Amparano
Kerman, California.
The then 33-year-old officer was traveling south on Del Norte Avenue in Kerman when he spotted a large fire at tree top level about a half-mile ahead. He first wrote it off to recent reports of teenagers lighting fire to palm trees, but as he approached the California Avenue intersection, he realized it was something else. Amparano saw "a circular type thing, similar to a round fireball or a setting sun, about 100 to 150 feet off the ground."He described the object as between 25 and 50 feet across. When it was only 100 feet away from his patrol car, he decided to turn his spotlight on it. But as he attempted to do so, the object moved away and upward, then moved in a southeasterly direction at a high rate of speed.

While the object's light was not blinding, just before it moved away, a "bluish light beam" came from the object, angled toward his police car, similar to a camera flash. The officer drove to a nearby parking lot near Highway 145 and I80 to sort things out. But instead of finding himself alone in his thoughts, the second witness appeared. Phil Mahler, delivering newspapers for the Fresno Bee, said that while he was delivering a newspaper at Whites Bridge Road and Grantland Avenue, he observed "a redish ball in the sky." As a police officer, he noted the time when he first saw the object, and when it moved away - a total of 4 to 5 minutes. He also made a sketch of the object, and recorded the sighting as May 13, 1978, at 3:13 a.m. According to a February 23, 1979, Fresno Bee story, then Police Chief James Van Cleaf, decided to withhold case details. He later resigned. Amparano went public with the case and eventually fielded questions from the media worldwide.

Back at the station, Amparano followed up by contacting the Air National Guard, the weather bureau, and a radar station located at Fresno Air Terminal. Nothing showed on radar scopes, no weather balloons had been launched, and there were no airplanes in the area. While making calls in the station, two fellow officers, A.J Buinyton and Bob Muller, approached to ask what he was doing, noticing burn marks on his face and neck. Then after taking him into a bathroom to show him the burns, they discovered that his chest was burned through his shirt. The officers then accompanied Amparano to the cotton field where the incident took place and searched for evidence but found nothing.

Returning home finally, he reported to his wife that he was feeling "uncomfortable," and could not have covers touching him while he slept that night. His wife reported that his body twitched while he slept. After waking at 5 p.m. and still feeling sick, he went to the Fresno Community Hospital emergency room where his burns were listed as coming from "unknown sources." They recorded his blood pressure high, at 150 over 90. A private doctor later said he suffered from a "high intensity fluorescent pipe light or a gamma ray." Now other clues would follow.

After filing a report with a Seattle-based "phenomenon research center", he received a follow-up that a Fresno astronomer reported a "reddish ball" going down close to the ground west of Fresno at about the same time as Amparano's sighting. And during the same time period, the North Central Fire District took a fire call at Trinity Road and Shaw Avenue. Trucks responded. No fire. But Amparano said the report area was in a direct line from where his sighting occured. Then Ken Westbrook, Jr, 20, came forward. Westbrook was working the night shift at the Gilory Farm raking hay 8 miles west of Kerman. Upon hearing about Amparano's experience, he called police and talked to the chief. He later spoke to a Probe UFO Investigator as well. Over a 30 to 40-second period, he saw a "glowing orange ball of light coming over the tops of the branches. "It caught my attention as it came up and just kind of drifted around a little bit." Fresno National Weather Bureau Meteorologist Carl Smith also provided testimony that either the day before Amparano's sighting - or two days before - he saw "lights flashing through the sky from all directions. "What I saw was like a bunch of crazy airplane pilots."

1978 Apr 19 - Police Officer Observes and Photographs Disc
Colfax, Wisconsin
On April 19, 1978, police officer Mark Coltrane was on patrol in the vicinity of Colfax, in Wisconsin, USA. At midday, he decided to stop the car to eat something, in a small isolated area. He noted that his radio was emitting crackles.He then noticed a metalic looking disc raising towards the the sky at a short distance from the parking space.

While the object seemed to move towards him, Coltrane picked up his Polaroid camera, came out of the car and snapped some photographs. The object was so close in one of the images that it is possible to notice some details of its lower surface. In the second photograph the object is starting to move away.The total observation lasted a few minutes, the object being being lost from his sight when it accelerated and fled in the distance.

Coltrane, shocked by the sighting, remained in amazement for two hours without saying anything, by fear of being ridiculed when he would have to submit his report to his chiefs.

Porter, Texas

At 4:15am, Officer John W. Bruner, a deputy sheriff, was on duty and was the first person to observe an unusual phenomenon. Officer Bruner and his partner Officer Coogler were parked west of the object which appeared to be approximately 1/2 to 1 mile away. Bruner and Coogler got out of their vehicle and tried to observe the object better by shinning their light on it. The object moved toward the men and the officers turned off the light because they became nervous at seeing the object's response to their light. The object then moved back to its first location. The two officers concurred that the object appeared to have six portholes surrounding a type of framework. The two officers observed the UFO for approximately 45 minutes. During that time period, the UFO appeared to stand still in mid air, pulsated, traveled at incredible speeds and flew with erratic mobility. The officers described the UFO's apparent size to be about that of a grapefruit. Officer Bruner is convinced That the object he saw was not a balloon or a helicopter.

1977 Feb 10 - UFO Hovers Over Two Policemen In Patrol Car
... ...
Sheriff's Deputy Kenneth Creel, of Madison County, left on a routine patrol drive in the evening. And saw an unusual object while driving down the Smith School Road four miles west of Flora, near the county line. He was with Constable James Luke at the time. "It looked like an evening star or something," said Creel, "but it kept getting brighter and bigger." When the shape of the object began to form, Creel said he contacted the Mississippi Highway Patrol with his car radio equipment. "I kind of thought it was an airplane flying low, or like it could have been." But when the strange object came within "about 200 yards" of his car across the field, he stopped and cut his engine and my lights to listen.

What he heard was a whirring noise, "like a blender . . Like it was straining, when you first put ice in it," and then the UFO started coming closer. "The thing came right over the car," said Creel. Creel looked straight up from his patrol car window. "It came right to us, like it was being piloted. ... The thing just hovered over us, about 20 or 30 feet up, for more than a minute." "There was light coming out from little windows," he said, and the light apparently changed colours several times, from soft blue to red to green and other colours. The UFO was reportedly about 30 to 40 feet in diameter, and perfectly round. "It didn't spin or anything. It just hoovered around there."

After about a minute, Creel began backing up his patrol car for about 100 yards to a place where he could turn around. By this time, however, Highway Patrolman Louis Younger drove up in his patrol car within a short distance of the UFO, and reported seeing the same object. His description matched that of Creel's. "Then the thing just picked up and took off, north west, toward Satartia."

An unidentified object of the same general description was reported the same evening by other Flora residents, and Deputy Charles Bowering and Highway Patrolman Joe Chandler and others said they saw lights from an unidentified craft "from a distance."

1976 Nov 27 - Repeat Sightings in South Dakota
Millbank, South Dakota
At about 6:30 P.M. (CST) on the evening of November 27, 1976, Mike Foss left a local auto body shop in Milbank intending to return home by car. Travelling south on highway 77 out of Milbank, he suddenly noticed a "tremendously bright, brilliant orange light" to the right of him. He continued to watch the object for a few moments until turning to proceed westward toward his parents' farm on a gravelled county road. Realizing that whatever was responsible for the light was hanging over a field alongside the road, Foss stopped for a better look. He realized that whatever it was he was observing was clearly not any sort of object he was familiar with. Frightened, Foss sped off for for home about a mile and a half away, intended to pick up his parents and return to the spot to show them what he had seen. Arriving at the house, he jumped out of the car and ran into the house yelling "come quick".

According to Mr. Foss, just prior to Mike's rushing into the house, the television began to "act up" by rolling vertically. Upon going outside Mr. Foss felt that "some heavy trucks must have been passing by" and he clearly saw and heard a jet passing westwards overhead. Mike realized that the object was now a few feet in the air between the hog house and the barn, about 100 feet from where they were standing. After a few moments the two men came in to get a pair of opera glasses (6x 1 5) to observe the object better. While they were looking for the glasses, Mrs. Foss continued to watch the device from the kitchen window. At this point the object began to drift away from its original position, moving away from the house at 180° toward the southwest. Then, appearing to have stopped once again, it began to emit, laterally, one at a time, what appeared to be "red balls" of some sort. These seemed to be without substance, were emitted from the sides of the object (but not at the same time) and floated about four of the parent object's diameters from the main body. One ball having reached this distance from the object, it then exploded noiselessly into nothing; a which point another"ball" emitted from the opposite side of the device. By the time the men managed to find the opera glasses and return, in a matter of perhaps two minutes, this phenomenon had ceased and the object had begun to recede again slowly to the southwest. The three Fosses watched for about twenty to twenty-five minutes. The somewhat egg-shaped object, blue at its base, flashed multi-colored lights (mostly red) higher up and had two protruding legs or antennae. It then drifted slowly straight away from them and off to the southwest, diminishing in size and intensity until it finally disappeared in the distance.

After the object left the area, the television was normal again. Mike and his his father both sketched what they had seen while it was still fresh in their memory. When they got together again to compare the sketches, they were strikingly similar. Mike stated that since this first sighting, he had experienced a strange recurring dream in which he is alone on a hilltop "on a strange planet with a purple sky" watching a number of strange 'craft' maneuvering in the distance. "Some are silver and some are black, and there seems to be a war going on". In addition, he said he clearly felt that the object would return and that it will return again.

The object returned again on three separate occasions. On two of these occasions, it was sighted only at extreme distances as a bright orange light maneuvering off to the southwest of the house. On the third occasion, the object positioned itself between the barn and the hog house, and it remained in the area twenty to twenty-five minutes following the same pattern of slowly receding to the southwest. At the appearance of the object, Mike noticed that his scanner had locked onto frequency seven, approx VHF frequency 140 MHz, as used by the Minnesota Highway Patrol, and was emitting bursts of static. This time Mike called Milbank police requesting a dispatch. Police Chief Ben Amsden attended out but by the time he arrived, the object was only a bright light in the distance. Amsden, however, did notice an orange glow in the vicinity of the Foss farm while proceeding toward it in the squad car. Also reported to have seen the object, this time in the area of the KMSD radio tower about two and one half miles from the Foss house, are Mr. Don Adams, bartender at the local VFW club, and his wife. On Sunday, December 12, 1976, one day after the last sighting of the object , the Foss' seven year old german shepherd became ill. On the 13th, the dog was examined by a Dr. Dotney, DVM, from Milbank, who diagnosed the problem as an apparent stroke, as the animal's veins had collapsed and the dog was in shock. The dog was put to sleep.

1976 Apr 22 - Police Officer Has Repeat Sighting
Elmwood, Wisconsin

Officer George Wheeler
At about 11 p.m., George Wheeler, a relief policeman at the town of Elmwood, WI, encountered a strange glowing object which he estimated was about 500 feet distant and hovering about 100 feet off the ground. There were six bluish-white lights, windows or portholes on the side and he could see shadows as if someone was moving inside of it. This case involves apparent electro-mechanical effects, multiple witnesses, and possible animal reaction.

More serious was an encounter of the worst kind experienced on the night of April 22, 1976, when police officer George Wheeler investigated a flaming red object hovering a hundred feet or so over central Elmwood. As he drove up beneath the craft, his radio abruptly ceased to function. Sometime later, David Moots, a local resident, saw the patrol car sitting silently and unlit in the middle of a downtown street. Inside, Officer Wheeler was barely conscious.

In response to ambulance technicians trying to save his life en route to the emergency ward, Wheeler claimed he had been hit in the chest with a painful red ray that shot from the UFO through his windshield. As his health rapidly deteriorated for causes his doctors could not determine, he repeatedly told them, to their disbelief, that he was dying from the mysterious effects of internal injuries caused by alien beings. Within six months after his April encounter, Officer George Wheeler died of unknown causes.

Gillette, WY
... ...
At 8:09pm, a Sheriff's deputy was driving with his family when an object started coming toward the car. The deputy immediately stopped the car and turned off the headlights. The object appeared to be the size of a semi-truck and had rotating lights of many different colors. The center of the object was a bright light. As the object came closer to the car, the officer felt that "It was trying to catch us," and he tried to turn his car around. When he was unable to turn on the narrow road, he started backing away from the UFO. After traveling for almost a mile, he reached a point where he could turn around. By this time the object was about 100 yards from the car and about 10 feet off the ground. As the officer was attempting to turn his car, the UFO was lost from sight. Later the witness returned home and got into a truck in order to search for the UFO away from the main roads. Upon his return to the valley where he had seen the UFO first, a "bright light" rose swiftly and soon disappeared from view.

1975 Dec 19 - Police from Three Counties Pursue UFO
Hastings, Florida.
... ...
At least 12 policemen in three northeastern Florida counties searched all night for what was described as a multicolored, unidentified flying object (UFO) the size of three football fields. "We just don't know what it is yet," a spokesman for the Flagler County sheriff's office said. "One of the deputies actually saw it. But then we lost it."

St. Johns County sent up a helicopter with residents from the tiny town of Hastings who said they saw the object flying sideways and landing in a wooded area. Witnesses said the object flashed rainbow colors and was three storeys high. Area residents also joined the search on foot in the area near the boundaries of St. Johns, Flagler and Putnam counties.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it knew of no planes that had crashed in the area and could not speculate what the object might be, a spokesman said.

Ramsey, New Jersey
... ...
At 2:55am, two police officers, Francis J. Gross and C. Ragazzo were on routine patrol when officer Ragazzo received a radio call from Gross informing him of five "strange looking" lights in the south-west sky. Both officers were able to observe the objects for a period of five minutes. The lights were in a straight line formation and moving very slowly. They appeared to be solid and were reddish in color. The rear sections of the objects were blurred but the rest of the cigar shape was distinctly outlined. The officers watched the objects intently until they disappeared from sight.

1975 Oct - Witnesses Observe Huge Boomerang Over Motorway
New York
A truck driver on a trip from NYC to Albany was driving when he noticed his CB and the AM radio was only picking up static. At around 8:30 or he started to notice that there were cars pulled off to the side of the road and in the median. As he pulled under an overpass he saw an object floating about 100 feet above the road. He broke hard then saw the object was approximately the size of a high school football field, but not quite as wide. It had lights on each end and in the middle with blue square lights all across the back end of the wings.

He got out of the truck and was standing in front of the truck looking up at it when a NY State Trooper pulled up and got out of his cruiser. The two stood there watching for about two to three minutes. There was no sound at all and the object didn't fluctuate or "flutter" as it floated in the air. The structure of the craft was visible and there were no rivets or seams, just a silver-grey body. The trooper called out to him to ask if he was seeing the same thing. Then suddenly it moved over the Hudson River, made a slight turn kind of facing up, and then in one second it was gone.

When the object had departed, the CB and AM radio returned to normal. The total time of the sighting was about 5 minutes.

1975 Apr 3-9 - Flying Triangles over North Carolina
North Carolina
A concentration of Triangle UFOs appeared in North Carolina from April 3 to April 9, 1975, and was the first 'flap' of such sightings, encompassing 57 separate events. Among the witnesses were 48 police officers.

The first report was from the town of Lumberton on April 3. At 1:45am three police officers saw a V-shaped object flying at 200 to 300 feet above the ground. It had row of red lights on one side, a row of green lights on the other, and two spotlights. They contacted the police in St. Paul's, 15 miles north, and told them to be on the alert for the object.

Two officers in St. Paul's soon saw the object hover are mere 20 feet above the ground, which they described as a blinding flash of light. One of the officers said it “just lit up the woods like a giant flashbulb.” The object rose to about 300 feet and departed at an estimated speed of 200 mph. Although it was the size of a small aircraft, it made no sound. It left no traces in the fields or woods.

Later that morning, presumably the same object was reported in Hoke County, northwest of St. Paul's, near the Fort Bragg Military Reservation. Police there followed a lighted V-shaped craft as it travelled east into Cumberland County.

It continued east into Sampson County to the town Roseboro. An officer there named Jim Driver said the object passed 100 feet above him, slow and absolutely silent. When he got out of his car, a spot-light came on and intensified. The craft then took off at high speed. The driver followed it to the town of Garland, 14 miles south-east, where he broke off the chase.

The craft was next reported at Elizabethtown in Laden County, 24 miles east of Lumberton. Another police officer confirmed the sighting there, and residents claimed the object's searchlights lit the town like daylight.

From there, the object moved south where it was seen in Columbus County five minutes before sunrise at 6:55am. The next important night was Friday evening, April 4, as the dispatcher with the Robson County Sheriff's Department, Ronald Thompson, claimed he saw a flying object approach from the southeast, then stop and hover about 300 feet away. He shut off his engine and flashed his headlights at the craft, and it flashed a searchlight back before taking off to the west behind some trees. The craft appears to have been the same as seen previously. It was silent, V-shaped, about 30 feet in diameter, illuminated from the inside, and with two searchlights.

The same night, at White Lake, police Chief Gary Moore reported that he was driving on a lakeside road when a lighted V-shaped object came down and lit up an area of about 500 feet on either side the road “like it was daylight”. Moore stopped his car, got out, and studied the object through binoculars. He was dumbstruck: “I couldn't say anything for a second or two. I said if they want me, they're going to come and get me, but they didn't seem to want me.” Several other drivers stopped by and watched the object through Moores binoculars during the five minutes that the craft was hovering. Moore retrieved an airplane landing light that he carried in his patrol car, and pointed it at the object. “I blinked the light and it blinked back,” he recalled. The object then moved west towards Lumberton, and Moore tried to follow it. For two miles he drove as fast as 85 mph, but the object pulled away, blinked its lights, and “went straight up and out” at about 200 mph.

The encounters continued that night. At about 2am, Saturday April 5, a state patrolman reported a slow-moving flying craft near the town of Saddletree. He got to within 300 yards of the object, and described it as having brilliant orange-red lights.

On April 6, Sunday, a daylight sighting and verified landing occurred at 5:15pm, although this object did not appear to be a triangle. Ray Strickland, a Pembroke State University campus policeman was driving with his wife and children just north of Pembroke, when his family saw five lights in a close formation, light red in colour, travelling at about 50 mph and about 100 feet above the ground. It appeared to the family that the lights were about to crash into a nearby house. Instead the lights descended into a potato field, and the Stricklands drove home to contact authorities. Dispatcher Ronald Thompson arrived from the Sheriff's with a photographer, but all that was left were five circular ash patches of a “strange blue colour,” each one about a foot in diameter, in a pattern similar to the formation the family had seen. Ted Phillips investigated the case for CUFOS and found other witnesses who told him they saw a chrome-like attachment between each light, so it was apparently a single object.

There were no Radar trackings of the object that week, according to the Fayettevill Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) initially tried to explain the UFO sightings as a Piedmont Airlines Boeing Delta jet making test runs. Later the FAA revised the statement saying there were no airplanies in the area at the time of the sighting.

1975 Mar 2 - Disc Craft Reported in Wisconsin
Phillips, Wisconsin
On March 2 1975, among other similar reports around this time, a disc-shaped craft was reported by a police officer in Phillips, Wisconsin. This was a five-minute-long event. The officer initially heard strange noises on his patrol car radio. In his words, “it went wild.” He then saw a disc-shaped object with a rounded hump on its top and bottom, along with red and orange lights on its bottom edge. The officer estimated the object to be about 30 feet in diameter. When he directed his spotlight on the object, it rapidly ascended into the sky. The case was recorded by Dr. Richard Haines, a UFO researcher with expertise in interactions and apparent communication between human beings and UFOs. Pg 46-47. [64.

1975 Feb 17 - UFOs over ICBM Base
Harlowton, Montana
On February 17, 1975, At around 9pm, several local officials from multiple locations saw a bright object hovering and manoeuvring about 500 feet above the “Kilo One' Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) base. One county deputy, Larry Clifford, reported that as he drove to within a mile of the object, it suddenly shot up to about 2,000 feet, stopped, and then disappeared into the clouds. The county commissioner, Edgar Langston, observed the object through binoculars about 15 miles to the South. “It climbed at one hell of an angle, moving too fast and steeply to be an aircraft.” He saw what looked like antennae at the top of the object. Deputy Herb Lynn saw the object plunge down and then shoot straight up, while another deputy, Russ Mill, was within a mile of the site and saw a bright object bobbing up and down.
