This article was published in the daily newspaper
The Cincinnati Post, Ohio, USA, on October 12, 1973.
Lights in sky are puzzle
Hamilton: Unidentified objects are flying over southwestern Ohio again, callers report
to police agencies.
Hamilton police received calls of a "bright white light" moving in the sky.
Similar reports came from the Ross and Millville areas of Butler County, and at New
Lebanon in Montgomery County.
Numerous spottings were reported the night before in eastern Indiana, and Baer Field
at Ft. Wayne reported its radar had picked up an object it could not identify.
There was speculation that the Butler County sightings could have been the Skylab
space station, which was scheduled to pass over the area at about 7:30 p.m.
Robert Bales, a New Lebanon policeman, said almost 25 persons gathered in the street
Wednesday night and watched a UFO display for about a half hour.
Bales said he took pictures which show "lights brighter than the stars."
