Two city residents report they saw unusual objects in
the sky Tuesday night.
Jack Strangman, 29, of 10741 151st
St., said today he viewed a “whitish, oval-shaped” object through binoculars
over Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
The cemetery was the scene of a
reported flying saucer sighting 10 days ago.
Mr. Strangman, a school janitor, said
he read news accounts of the sightings and “just for the heck of it” decided
to have a look for himself.
Norman Fibke, 10130 90th St., said
today he was working in his backyard when he saw an “egg-shaped” object with
“two red lights” at each end.
Mr. Fibke said the object he saw at
9:20 p.m. was “really bright,” about “the height of a plane,” and disappeared
over Alex Taylor School, 9321 Jasper Ave.
Mr. Strangman said he was positive
the object he viewed about 11:30 p.m. “wasn’t a plane.”
Stationary at first, it “came
straight down” at a “terrific rate of speed,” then moved rapidly westward and
He said he plans to have another look
