UFOs SIGHTED IN ROCKLAND, MASSACHUSETTS
On Wednesday, December 31, 1997, at 8:52 a.m., Lynn S.
was driving in rush-hour traffic in Rockland, Massachusetts (population
15,695), a suburb on Route 139 approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast
neared Reed's Pond, on Market Street in Rockland, she spotted "a
cigar-shaped craft that hovered for a minute and 45 seconds above the waters
of Reed's Pond before it plunged in and exploded. I saw the object come
across the sky, pulsating a blue light from the top
with two strong flashing lights on each side."
"Traffic slowed, but no one seemed to care enough to get out and
see what the object was," she reported. "As I approached the
traffic lights, people were pointing back at the pond. But without the
(traffic) light working, drivers were beginning to swear, cut people off and
no one was paying any attention to the object."
driving home and finding I had no electricity, I called the electric company but
only got a recording. I began calling other residents of the town. They all
said they had no electricity after they 'heard the planes go over.'"
a.m., Lynn drove back to Reed's Pond. "To my amazement, a black ball hovered in the sky above
it, as big as a silver dollar, but nothing was astir in the pond. I noticed
dead ducks and seagulls floating on the surface."
zipped away seconds later. "For the record, I never heard any
planes." (Email Interview)
