Great UFO Wave:
Lights in sky are puzzle
October 12, 1973
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."
