Location. Crawfordsville, Indiana
Date: September 5 1891
Time: 2:00am
Summary: As reported in the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper on September 10, 1891, two icemen were working outside in Crawfordsville at about 2:00am five nights previously, when a bizarre object sailed overhead. The icemen described the UFO as a ‘seemingly headless monster’, although there is no reason to believe that it was an animal of any kind.  It was about 20ft long, and 8ft wide, moving in the sky toward the two men, and ‘seemingly propelled by fin like attachments.’  The men moved, and the UFO flew off.  The noise awoke Methodist pastor G.W. Swittze, who saw it circling in the sky. The story is as follows; September 5, 1891 at around 2 o’clock in the morning, two men were hitching up a wagon when they sighted a “horrible apparition”. Jerome Clark continues: One hundred feet in the air, twenty feet long and eight feet wide, the headless, oblong thing – apparently some bizarre variety of living creature – propelled itself with several pairs of fins and circled a nearby house. They were not, however, the only witnesses. A Methodist pastor, the Rev. G. W. Switzer, and his wife also observed the phenomenon. Clark notes that this creature hadn’t tired of harassing Crawfordsville quite yet. Continuing Clark relates: The creature was back the following evening, and this time hundreds of Crawfordsville citizens saw its violently flapping fins and flaming red “eye”. The creature “squirmed as if in agony” and made a “wheezing, plaintive sound” as it hovered at 300 feet. At one point it swooped over a band of onlookers, who swore they felt its “hot breath”.

Summary: Great Airship Wave :
An amazing series of sightings, stretching from the East to the West coast of the U.S., occurred in 1896 and 1897. Many newspapers carried sightings of “airships” seen travelling through the air. These mechanical contraptions often shone spotlights on the ground and made lots of clanking and other noises as they moved through the sky. Speculation about the “airships” focused on a series of “inventors” who were testing these new craft and would soon be making them commercially available for the public. Some people claimed that the airships landed and that they met these “inventors.” Some airship pilots claimed to be from Mars; others insisted they were “from a place where it never rains.” Yet others claimed the airships were being built in rather mundane workshops on the East coast. Some witnesses protested that the airships were dropping ballast or cargo on them. (H.G. Wells wrote a short story about this time, Master of the Air , about a man named Robert L’Conqueror, who conquers the world through his secret lighter-than-air airship technology and various weapons.) Not surprisingly, shortly after the airship “wave,” the first terrestrial zeppelins and dirigibles began being built and used commercially, as if the UFO was always one step ahead of our own technology. There would be some repeat airship encounters during the so-called “Christmas Wave” of 1909-10, when airships with ‘searchlights’ were seen over New England.

One of the most curious episodes of the whole Airship wave – which, like many of the others, was thought to be a newspaper hoax – was a story of an airship which crashed into Judge Proctor’s windmill in Aurora, Illinois. A body of a small “martian” was said to be recovered and buried with some of the wreckage. In 1972, rumors were sparked anew as a man appeared and claimed to know the whereabouts of this wreckage. This man, a Frank Kelley of Corpus Christi, said he was a treasure hunter, and produced several pieces of metal found with his metal detector, which turned out to be mostly aluminum. No body was ever found by UFO investigators, and, like so many other weirdos in the UFO world, this guy with a fake address and phone number disappeared as abruptly as he turned up. Not unsurprisingly, in late 1972 the U.S. was already experiencing the beginnings of the massive UFO wave of ’73, which shattered post-Condon report complacency.

Summary: Alexander Hamilton was awakened by a noise among the cattle and went out with his son and his tenant. They saw an elongated cigar- shaped object, about 100 m long with a transparent cabin underneath showing narrow reddish bands, hovering 10 m above ground. They approached within 50 m of it. It was illuminated and equipped with a searchlight. Inside it were “six of the strangest beings” the witness had seen, also described as “hideous.” They spoke a language no witness could understand. A cow was dragged away by the object with the help of a strong red cable; it was found butchered in a field the next day. From a sworn statement dated 21 April, a prosperous and prominent farmer named Alexander Hamilton told of an attack upon his cattle at about 10:30 PM the previous Monday. He, his son, and his tenant grabbed axes and ran some 700 feet from the house to the cow lot where a great cigar-shaped ship about 300 feet long floated some 30 feet above his cattle. It had a carriage underneath which was brightly lighted within (dirigible and gondola?) and which had numerous windows.  Inside were six strange looking beings jabbering in a foreign language.  These beings suddenly became aware of Hamilton and the others. They immediately turned a searchlight on the farmer, and also turned on some power, which sped up a turbine wheel (about 30 ft diameter) located under the craft. The ship rose, taking with it a two-year old heifer, which was roped about the neck by a cable of one-half inch thick, red material. The next day a neighbor, Link Thomas, found the animal’s hide, legs and head in his field. He was mystified at how the remains got to where they were because of the lack of tracks in the soft soil. Alexander Hamilton’s sworn statement was accompanied by an affidavit as to his veracity. The affidavit was signed by ten of the local leading citizens.

Location. Aquila-Hillsboro Texas
Date: Apr. 26, 1897
Summary: A lawyer was surprised to see a lighted object fly over. His horse was scared and nearly toppled the carriage. When the main light was turned off, a number of smaller lights became visible on the underside of the dark object, which supported an elongated canopy. It went down toward a hill to the south, 5 km from Aquila. When the witness was on his way back one hour later he saw the object rising. It reached the altitude of the cloud ceiling and flew to the northeast at a fantastic speed with periodic flashes of light.
