Two 'New' UFO Crashes

Subject: Two 'New' UFO Crashes

To anyone interested:

Here is a report I feel confident none of you have heard. It
was investigated initially by Ray Fowler when he worked with
NICAP.

Several years ago, I heard that in the seventies a UFO had
crashed into a nearby "swimming hole" known as Rainbow Lake here
in Derry NH, (USA). I took that report with substantial NaCl,
but then later saw reference to it in a book about "local
mysteries". So, I went to the library and did some micro
ficheing. Since I had no specific date to go by, I started from
1970 and worked my way through piles of newspaper film until I
found the story. I'm paraphrasing here since I can't find the
photocopy, but here is the gist of it:

On Oct. 10, 1973, more than twenty witnesses saw two glowing
disks descend from the sky. Both hovered momentarily above
Rainbow Lake, then one dropped into the water, making an audible
splash and a series of waves. The remaining disk lingered
briefly, then shot back into the sky. The police were contacted,
and subsequently divers from the local fire department were
called in. They searched the water, but reported near zero
visibility due to the cloudy, murky conditions. Dragging the
bottom with nets was considered, but apparently dragging for
UFOs was not included in the small-town fire dept's budget, and
no further searches were conducted.

I have been to the site, and it is not a particularly large body
of water. In fact, "pond" would describe it more adequately. It
is perhaps two to three hundred yards wide, and nearly circular.
It may be artificial. I have not spoken to any of the witnesses,
but have spoken to a few folks who recall the excitement
generated by the event.

I must admit, I watched with bemusement as Paramount's Sightings
covered the recent searches off the coast of Nova Scotia as
teams looked through hundreds of square miles of ocean for the
object purportedly seen there a few years back. Perhaps they
would have had better luck down the road a bit from my house!
There are no reports of the object leaving, after all.

If anyone would like copies of the original articles, let me
know and I'll find them or just go make more.
