1963: A Gigantic ‘Cigar’ Over the Atlantic

THINK ABOUTIT SIGHTINGS REPORT Date: May, 1963 Location: Over the Atlantic Ocean Hynek Classification: DD Duration: Shape of Object(s): Cigar Number of Witnesses: Multiple Source: Flying Saucer Review, Volume 46/4, Winter 2001 Source Summary: Almost beneath the DC-8, was a gigantic dark grey ‘torpedo’. It seemed menacing and frightening, and I had the impression that it was stationary. It was utterly unlike anything that I had ever seen in my whole life. It looked as though made of steel. No portholes or windows were visible. No wings or projections. Nothing but the long perfect torpedo form, with its bullet-shaped head, and the rear end which was cut off sharply and squarely.

Surely they realize the scientific import of their sighting transcends any nationalist or mili- tary considerations. If more military witnesses… Read More

1969: Arrowhead UFO Sighting, Gulf of Mexico – Article
