Thousands witness UFO circling Lake Gregory fireworks show
By Douglas W. Motley
According to a Pentagon spokesman, the government is gearing up to release a detailed report confirming for the first time the existence of unidentified flying objects, often referred to as UFOs or flying saucers.
Thousands of people (including this reporter) witnessed a UFO circling Lake Gregory during a June 30, 2001, fireworks show held the weekend before July 4th, which was on a Wednesday.
According to the National UFO Reporting Center, a strange light with no flashing lights and no sound came in from the west and began circling the lake. As the fireworks were going off, it continued circling the lake three or four more times.
The first time it took about one minute to complete a circle estimated in excess of 10 miles around, which would equate to a speed of about 1,800 miles per hour, then moved more slowly, taking about a minute and a half to complete each of the remaining encirclements. As it completed the last circle, it split into two objects and appeared to drop straight down without slowing. At the bottom of the drop, both objects merged back into one and continued westward until it was out of sight.
The Alpine Mountaineer would be interested in hearing from anyone who may have witnessed this event or who may have taken photos or video footage of this incident.
In his 2021 appropriation bill, former president Donald Trump mandated that the Pentagon and CIA must file a report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). Pentagon whistleblower Luis Elizondo, former head of the agency’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification program, reportedly told The New York Post about the blockbuster document.
Longtime UFO believers are anxious to hear the government’s explanation of “tic-tac-shaped objects” the Navy encountered at sea in 2004 and the “cubes within spheres” seen by Navy pilots in 2014, as well as the “mysterious black triangles” reported worldwide and the so-called “Phoenix Lights” seen in the sky above Phoenix on March 13, 1997.
“I think the government has acknowledged the reality of UAP,” Elizondo told the Post. “I think they all want answers and I think they are all willing to ask the hard questions,” he added.
During a recent press conference, Elizondo made it clear that UFOs have been observed to have qualities that are nothing less than otherworldly. He described objects flying at 11,000 miles per hour and being able to turn instantly, which would not likely be possible given currently known U.S. technology.
