Full Description & Details
It was late Sept. 1962 and a series of sightings were reported including documented ones in Haledon, Oradell and Hawthorne NJ. My friends and I were hanging out on a corner on Market St. Paterson NJ. Off in the distance we saw a silver saucer that move up down and sideways in an instant. It then had flames shooting from it. Another friend who was in the area under the craft came by and said he saw what appeared to be hieroglyphics flashing on the underside of the craft.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Clearly a UFO. many other sightings in the days before and after
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was a 16 year old and never gave much thought to UFO's.
This encounter changed me in a very fundamental way and made me realize we are not alone nor are humans the most advanced beings in the universe. To this day I wonder if these crafts travel long distances or just between dimensions. Are they always here and usually not visible. I wonder why they never seem to land in a populated area during regular busy times and make contact.
