“Auburndale Policemen Report UFO Sighting”

27 March 1979 (The Ledger, Lakeland, Florida)

The police officers Guthrie Knorr and John Knapp sighted 5 fast-flying, brightly coloured, disk shaped UFOs over Auburndale (Florida) on 27 March 1979, shortly after 2:00 a.m., The Ledger reports:

Quote from the article:
“ ‘They weren’t shooting stars,’ said Knorr. ‘They were in an old V-formation with two on one side and three on the other. One of them was bigger than the others.’

Shortly after the sighting, a citizen told police he spotted five streaking objects near the city, Knorr said.

Knorr said Knapp called the UFO Sighting Center in Seattle, Wash., to report this morning’s sighting.”
