DETROIT - Michigan’s weird, blinking lights apparently have extended their
appearances into Ohio and Wisconsin.
The reports of sightings, limited for nearly two weeks to southern Michigan,
came from some 100 miles north in Michigan’s “thumb” district, across Lake
Michigan at Green Bay, Wis., and south near Toledo and Dayton, Ohio.
As before, there was no full explanation.
So far, the only authoritative analysis has been the swamp-gas theory advanced
Friday by a Northwestern University astrophysicist, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who
also is a U.S. Air Force special consultant.
Ohio Highway Patrolman R. D. Landversicht said Sunday he saw a strange light
approaching Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. He was reported to
have photographed the lights and the air force was to develop the films today.
Wright Patterson is the home of the U.S. national unidentified aerial
phenomena office, called Project Blue Book.
Unidentified flying objects were reported in the Toronto, Barrie, Hamilton,
Sarnia and Kitchener-Waterloo areas of Ontario Sunday night.
Two Toronto men reported seeing a white light in the sky near Barrie moving
slowly to the south until it disappeared.
Lawrence Bressette, who runs a store at Kettle Point, about 25 miles northeast
of Sarnia, said he saw a disc-shaped object about 8 p.m. and watched for more
than an hour through field glasses as it flashed red, white, blue and green
Two University of Toronto engineering students said they saw a bright whirling
object fly across the sky from their rooftop observation point.
