NEW FLYING OBJECTS SIGHTED IN MICHIGAN
BAD AXE, Mich. March 27 (AP). -- More unidentified flying objects were reported
in Michigan last night.
Three policemen in this little community reported watching a bright blue light over Lake
Huron for about half an hour early today. One, Peter Torres, described the object as very
large and moving too fast to be a star [Venus?].
Cp. Frank Lyon of the State Police, who did not see it, speculated the object
might be a weather balloon. He said it was not uncommon for balloons released
at Sioux Falls, S.D., to drift over the area.
Thousands of residents of Hillsdale county, just north of Ohio, watched a couple
of lights high above them for several hours last night. Among them was Dave Keister,
assistant manager of Hillsdale radio station WCSR.
"I just don't think it was a star," said Mr. Keister, who looked at one through binoculars
for some time [planet?]. He said he could not estimate the size of the objects, and added that they
appeared to change in color from white to red to orange to green.
"They gave the impression that they might be rotating," he said.
Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a Northwestern University astrophysicist
and scientific consultant for the Air Force, said Friday that
phenomena reported at Hillsdale and at Dexter, Mich., on March 20, were
probably swamp gases
