Giving Thanks for UFOs

Well, it's happened again. For the second time in my very short career as a MUFON Certified UFO Field Investigator, one of my cases is in contention for MUFON's "Top 10" list!

It happened before, when a case involving a giant hovering UFO witnessed by a woman and her daughter was named one of MUFON's "Top 10 UFO Sightings" of 2012. It was a pretty cool case, but I'm even more excited about the new one. Well, I say "new," but it actually took place in 1980. It's a mass sighting at Fort McCoy, a military base in central Wisconsin, that involved as many as 50 servicemen.

The witness is now retired and is haunted by the event. He doesn't know what he saw, and realizes he may never know, but he wants to know if any of the other servicemen there that night remember seeing what he saw, a strange rectangular craft with two entities visible through a port in the front of the object.

His story, which you can read here, sure made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. The sketch he sent me of the craft (below) is amazingly detailed and precise. I have spent a lot of time conversing with the witness of the phone and via email, and he has never given me the slightest reason to think that he was making this up or imagining it. This is one of those cases where my gut reaction is very Hynek-like: I absolutely believe that this witness had a real experience, but I have absolutely no idea what it could have been, or what level of reality from which it may have emerged...

I may learn more about the Top 10 selections next week, so I'll keep you posted!
