A big part of the evidence
of the UFO phenomenon existence is the eyewitness testimony. Many people
have been sent to prison just because of eyewitness reports to crimes
committed. Over the past 60 years, there have been thousands of
eyewitness reports of strange looking craft operating in our world's
skies. This would number in the millions if all the sightings were
reported. Many people don't report UFO sightings because of the
frustration of not knowing who to report it to. This is one of the
reasons that the Roundtown UFO Society exists; to be an outlet for these
sighting reports. We have monthly meetings at the Pickaway County
District Library on North Court St that is open to the public. The
library also has UFO material. This includes the monthly MUFON
Journal, videos and books.
Psychology plays a big part in UFO sightings. Some witnesses never
forget their sighting and they realize that there is more to life than
they realize. Others want to forget their sighting, either because it
scares them too much or they feel as long as it doesn't affect their
life, it doesn't matter if UFOs exist or not. Who knows, the
future may change that way of thinking.
I have been told personally or read on many occasions by several
witnesses, "that I never would have believed UFOs existed, if I hadn't
seen it myself." Some people feel that UFOs don't exist because they
have never seen one. They change their mind when they observe close up.
UFO existence is a reality whether you believe it or not. UFO
knowledge is not a matter of believing, like faith, or desire, but a
matter of evidence. There is plenty of evidence. How many
sightings do you have to hear about until you realize that the
phenomenon is real?
As UFO reality becomes more accepted, more and more witnesses are coming
forward about their past UFO sightings. This is also occurring
with present day sightings. One indicator that will show the
acceptance of the UFO phenomenon is when the witnesses say you can use
their names in the sighting report. Fewer are remaining anonymous.
This is occurring more and more. They are not afraid of ridicule or
To the ones who feel this subject of UFOs isn't real, I say besides from
doing some research on it, just try doing this simple test. I call
it the one on one approach. I have done it on occasions for many
years. When you are talking to someone and no one else is within
earshot, just simply ask them what they think of the UFO phenomenon.
You do not have to say what you think of it, unless asked. You will be
surprised sometimes, as I have been to the answer. This is
apparently because the person feels more comfortable in that he is not
with a group of people. I have gotten some UFO sighting reports or
very interesting stories from some very respectable people. There
is a bigger story out there than many people realize. Your next
door neighbor, friend, or a close relative may have had a sighting.
You never know until you ask them privately. Many sightings are
completely unknown, except in the region where it happened The media
doesn't carry many of these events.
It is hard to state your feelings after seeing a strange looking craft
in the sky and realize that they are real after all. To anyone who
is afraid of this subject, because of unknown factors, I can only say
that the UFO phenomenon has been around for decades, if not for hundreds
Pickaway County has had its share of eyewitness reports of UFOs.
Led by Bruce Stevenson's dramatic sighting of Feb. 1,1948, there have
been many others reported to me from over the years. Some leading
citizens of the Circleville community have had past UFO sightings.
I personally interviewed Mr. Stevenson in 1959 for a high school project
dealing with the subject of flying saucers, a term used in that era.
Like Mr. Stevenson, a person who has a sighting like his never forgets
it for the rest of their life. It may happen; only once in your
lifetime, but not" many forget it. I haven't.
Some witnesses have come forward about their personal sighting when they
discover there were other witnesses to the event. Many military
witnesses would discuss their UFO sighting, if they knew they wouldn't
be violating their security oath.
