“This sighting was later corroborated by Motor Patrolman Patrick Gribbin, Sheriff Lee Roberts and Game Warden Floyd Gaarder of Presho, all of whom drove into the country to view the lights.
Hundreds of miles to the east, at Wanaque, N.J., five persons – three of them policemen – reported sighting UFOs. Patrolman William Pastor said he spotted a ‘bright light’ hovering over Wanaque Reservoir while he was parked in a patrol car nearby.
