WHITESBURG -- MUFON State Director Tom Sheets and George Lainhart met
the witness who spotted a UFO in June at his home. The witness turned
several good sketches of the UFO and reconfirmed his personal account
being correct. During further inspection of the surrounding property,
witness pointed out the treetops that were illuminated by the hovering
George had brought along his laser range finder used in his duties
SWAT Team. George ascertained that the trees which were first illuminated
were 336 yards away (the witness had estimated 500 yards). The second
to which the object moved was only 74 yards away. Using these more
ranges and a terrain feature of known size, we later hope to determine
exact real size for the object. Various police officials and local
area stores advised they had no knowledge of similar reports for the first
two weeks in June.
On September 10, the witness phoned Tom at 10:00 PM and indicated the
may have returned, as he could see bizarre lights over the distant part
his property. Tom proceeded to Whitesburg, which took about one
had left the area upon my arrival, and did not return up through 3:00
Thanks to Tom Sheets State Director.
LAGRANGE -- Around 7:45 PM, September 21, 2001, John Thompson saw a "donut"
like rope contrail. It had about 7-8 round spaced "donuts"
in a portion of
the contrail. I had a throwaway camera with me and took three photos
white contrails several miles away over the Georgia-Alabama border to
west, going south. It might have been one of the advanced military
deploying. Thanks to John Thompson
