The Muscarello/Exeter UFO Sighting of 1965
What is interesting to me is the locale (not far from the 1961 Hill episode) and preliminary to the 1966 Ann Arbor-Dexter/Hillsdale "swamp gas" sightings. (Mr. Muscarello's sighting was near a swampy area.)
The sighting is recounted here:
And is (supposedly) explained here:
Did Mr. Muscarello and the police officers on scene misperceive a refueling military plane or did he (and the police) experience a craft similar to the one Betty and Barney Hill allegedly saw (and were abducted by)?
And did Mr. Muscarello get a preemptive look at an thing that Frank Mannor saw near Ann Arbor and some Hillsdale College co-eds saw few months later.
Or was the sighting a whole matter of mis-identified normality, as the skeptics Jim McGaha and Joe Nickell contend?
The ufological problem, as always, lies in the obvious: the matter has not been nailed down one way or another, just as the Ann Arbor/Dexter/Hillsdale sightings have never been explained, swamp gas aside, nor have the 1966 Wanaque sightings, with similar aspects, been explained.
