The Canadian has become a great source of stories of “high strangeness” as of late, so I keep going back. This week they have an article regarding a UFO sighting near the Delaware Water Gap, an area where I’m planning on doing some camping in the near future. I also think the last paragraph is hysterical. Enjoy!.
Two New Jersey witnesses report a “strange light” in the sky near 9 p.m. on May 10, 2010, that was very bright about three miles from their location and heading toward the Delaware Water Gap, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
One witness attempted to signal the object, but there was no response.
“It at first seemed to be hovering over one point but we found the object to be maneuvering away from our position, as it eventually disappeared over the horizon,” the reporting witness stated.
The Delaware Water Gap sits near the Pennsylvania and New Jersey border where the Delaware River moves through a large ridge along the Appalachian Mountains.
OPINION: Attempts at signaling UFOs is often discouraged by ufologists, especially for those witnesses encountering an object near ground level. Several cases reported to MUFON within the past year indicate that, upon signaling, the UFO moves alarmingly near those who are signaling. Several witnesses in these cases then report missing time. Use caution in these cases – especially in rural and unpopulated areas where seeking shelter from the UFO may be difficult. Should an object beam a light toward you – move immediately away from the light and seek shelter and assistance.
