Great UFO Wave:
The World's Buzzing with UFO Talk

The latest flying object is reported from Lincoln Heights and Sharonville.
A woman said she heard a swishing noise in her back yard at 12:32 a.m. today as if a ship were taking off.
A Lincoln Heights man said he saw -at the same time- trees swaying from a wind in that area, and a bright ball of light with one flashing light moving upward to about 200 to 300 feet above the ground where it hovered a few moments, then moved upward to the northwest.
He said the light was so bright it camouflaged the vehicle. He described the noise as like a huge vacuum cleaner sucking air.
Nancy Steele, a junior at Scarlet Oaks Vocational School, Sharonville, said she and two other students sighted three UFOs at 8:20 a.m. today from their classroom, which has windows all along one side.
"The vehicle was white, resembling a thin strip, not small like the stream a jet makes," she said.
Nancy said no lights were apparent, and the vehicle had a short tail, compared with the tail section of a regular jetliner. About two minutes after the first one was sighted, she said, another came up fast, followed almost immediately by a third.
The reports weren't limited to Lincoln Heights. Cincinnati police got about 20 calls last night and Hamilton County police received 16 reports. Butler County and Hamilton police received more than 50 calls and deputies at the Warren County sheriff's office said the phone nearly rang off the wall with people calling to report bright-light sightings.
