Name: Thom Reed
Date of Event: Sept 1st 1969
Location of Event: Sheffield MA. & GT Barrington MA.
Message: My family and I were headed home following a horse show at Ski Butternut in GT Barrington, about 8:00 at night. We observed a large glowing disk rise along the left side of our station wagon as we exited the Sheffield Bridge. The disk originated from the water near the Bridge. We did feel a tingling, and it went dead silent. All of us were all looking right at it from the car windows. The disk stopped at about 100 feet or so off the ground. At this time light was coming from it, some downward hitting the ground and some hitting our car. We felt a change in barometric pressure, then an eruption of katydids and crickets, and that was it. We recall being in a large dark room, and walking along brightly-illuminated hallways, before finding ourselves back in the car.
This craft was observed by many, and aired on WSBS Radio. Our “Village on the Green” restaurant became the spot for locals to talk about it, as many had seen it. In 2015 our 1969 encounter (the encounter) became the 1st UFO case inducted into State History as Historically Significant and True. A citation from the Governor was issued on Nov 3rd 2015 and a 5000 pound UFO Monument was placed at the Sheffield Bridge. With that I welcome, and would like to speak to all witnesses from the area, (MA, CT, & NY) from years 1966 – 1970. See State Induction Coverage. http://www.thomreed.net
