Weld County phenomena
* July 7, 1947: A Greeley man working on a hay grinder north of Lucerne said he saw three flying saucers at 10 a.m. They were traveling at a high speed to the southwest. The next day, the most famous of all UFO incidents was announced -- the reputed crash of flying saucers in Roswell, N.M.
* On Aug. 25, 1949, a 12-year-old girl who lived northeast of Greeley reported a "flying disk" over her house in the early evening. She said it was flying far above a small plane. About the same time, some men were flying their small plane in the area, but the girl insisted what she saw was a disk above the plane.
* In 1952, although the exact date is unknown, a Weld County farmer reported he saw five "flying saucers" pass over his farm north of Greeley about 6 p.m. He said he also saw five fighter jets come through the area, possibly searching for the flying saucers, but the "speed of the saucers was immensely greater than the jets." The Tribune story also stated "Women folks were frightened by the terrible noise."

"As I approached the Dotterel junction at about 10.45pm I could see in the distance, on the right-hand side, two glowing spherical objects, orange and red.
"I continued watching them and they were moving independently, diagonally, up and down and sideways, both quite close together.
"I pulled up just before Buckton and got out of the car and watched them for five or 10 minutes.
"It looked like they were at the back of the Honeypot Inn. They were distant but I could still see how they were moving.
An unidentified flying object was spotted over Tottenham this week.
A resident watched gobsmacked from a window of her home off the High Road as a scarlet coloured oval object with flashing red lights soared across the sky.
The woman, who did not want to be named, said: "I've never made a call like this in my life. I've never seen anything like that. I may be barking but was it a visit from one of our friends from another place?"
The mysterious object was spotted last Friday (March 2) at around 10.40am heading in the direction of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
According to recent polls, almost 50 percent of Americans and millions of people around the world believe that UFO's are real.
An alien race invading planet Earth and taking over - it's an idea so powerful, it has drawn millions into movie theaters.
But isn't that kind of stuff pure fantasy?
Not to Seattle inventor Michael Menkin.
"We are being invaded right now," he said. "And they're taking children as well as adults."
"...It was not an object, it was a craft."

You know, were not all idiots.

Below is the issued press release:
Seven people have now come forward to claim they saw a UFO this week.
All reported seeing a large mysterious triangular object, with flashing red lights.
Electrician Graham Hearson, 45, of Westcliff, claimed he saw a UFO in Basildon while through Basildon on the A127 about 5am on Monday.
From an earlier report in The Echo: Graham Hearson said: "I saw flashing red lights in the sky. It was literally above my head."
Mr Hearson said the mystery object looked like a triangle or a square that had its sides pushed on.
He had been driving home from work in London to Southend about 5am when he claims the craft hovered silently past, just after the A130 turn-off to Wickford, and continued on to Benfleet.
Police had not received any other sightings.
A spokesman for London Southend Airport said no flights had been operating at that time and no unusual aircraft were in the area.
A strange object emitting green-and-white light was seen hovering early Sunday evening over southeastern Warrick County.
At least one person called the Warrick police dispatch center after seeing the object around 6:30 p.m. over the Yankeetown and Red Bush areas.
But Warrick County officials believe it most likely was not out of this world at all.
Warrick County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Brett Kruse, who also saw it, said it probably was just an airplane.
Kruse was driving when a call came over the scanner about the object, so he looked up and saw what appeared to be a distant airplane.
And that, he said, easily could be mistaken for what people traditionally think of when they talk of UFOs or alien spacecrafts. An airplane circling through a small area might appear to be hovering from a distance.

On Wednesday, a former Canadian defense minister is demanding governments worldwide disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change.
Paul Hellyer, 83, told the Ottawa Citizen, "I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation, which could be a way to save our planet."
Hellyer became defense minister in former Prime Minister Lester Pearson's cabinet in 1963, and oversaw the controversial integration and unification of Canada's army, air force and navy into the Canadian Forces.
