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.

I still keep scanning the skies, though. Carol Maltby Listen to 'Strange Days...
