I'd like to alert those interested in Hudson Valley UFO
sightings that we've been having a problem with what appear to
be military craft that may produce some UFO reports. Astronomer
Bob Berman (who lives in the area) described his sighting in his
Woodstock Times column as "Man, it was weird. It was the closest
thing to a UFO that I've ever seen."

This summer the mountainous, heavily wooded central Catskills
(western Ulster County in particular) has been plagued with
loud, fast low-flying aircraft often around midnight.They've
been reported to sometimes follow the hollows deeper into the
mountains. I ran out of my house at the noise when one of them
flew over, concerned that it was a plane about to crash (heard
it, didn't see it). Another I saw at midnight appeared to be
lower than the mountains beyond it, and seemed to be at least as
large as a quarter held at arm's length.

Efforts to find an agency would take responsibility for the
flights has been frustrating so far. The larger planes have been
identified as C-130s. They are sometimes seen in close pursuit
of smaller planes, which Berman describes as "small, very fast,
dark aircraft with no position (navigation) lights - just a
single green trailing light. I think it was a pilotless drone."
Resident Mary Kelly says the plane she saw had only one red
light.The smaller planes are said to be the MQ-9 Reaper
pilotless drones, of the sort used over Afghanistan. Perhaps
those of us under the fly-overs are only video game blips to
some kid at an Air National Guard console.

Woodstock (NY) Times article Aug. 25 2011:


Bob Berman Woodstock Times column Sept. 1, 2011:


I still haven't seen a UFO here in 24 years in the Hudson
Valley, though I once missed a possible sighting in a known
hotspot (Whitley's old neighborhood) due to being on the wrong
side of the car to see it. I still keep scanning the skies,
