UFOs in the daily Press:

The airship stories n the 1897 US Press:

This article was published in the daily newspaper The State Republican, Lansing, Michigan, Wednesday, April 14, 1897.

Warning: the airship stories must not be taken at face value as "UFO sightings." Evaluation of such stories is under way here.

The airship was plainly seen by several reliable citizens of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph - so they allege - and declare that it is no fake. It was seen about 8:00 Tuesday night [April 13, 1897], with blue, red, and green lights, and was moving rapidly in a northwesterly direction. The outlines could not be discerned, owing to the lights it bore and its great altitude over Lake Michigan.
