Great UFO Wave of 1973:
March 23 sighting
SUNBURY - Area police were called to investigate unidentified flying objects again Friday night.
Point Township police chief, C. David Bird, said a family in the Kapp Heights area spotted one in the area of the Priestly School between 8 and 8:30.
Sunbury city policemen Wade Brown and David Duff spotted another or possibly the same object in the sky behind the Shikellamy football stadium about 9:15.
Brown descrived the object as glowing red. "It shot across the sky like it was shot out of a slingshot," Brown said.
Brown said it was traveling horizontally so it could not have been a meteorite.
A Mile Hill, Sunbury RD1 resident, Dallas Lenig, told The Daily Item he saw about 10 of them Friday night between 8 and 9.
Lenig lives near the beacon light on top of a hill and has good visibility in all directions. He said the objects were in the Snydertown area and they moved toward Selisngrove.
Lenig said Ed Plotts, Sunbury, also saw two of the UFOs Friday night.
"They had bright white blinking lights," Lenig said, "and they were flashing in all directions. They were diamond-shaped underneath with several different colored lights."
He said they would stop in "mid-air" and move rapidly in all directions, making no sound. "They're unpredictable," he said.
Lenig said he also saw some of the UFO's a couple nights ago.
There were reports that several persons in the Mile Hill area sighted the UFO's and many of them were outside with telescopes and binoculars searching the skies.
