Hello subscribers.

UFO sightings are on the increase in Michigan's
'thumb-area', seemingly centered around Marlette and Brown City.
Last night's odd amber lights (common UFOs to this area) made
another appearance and on June 17, high altitude, starlike
objects zig-zagged across the sky and local residents heard
"high pitched whirring" sounds as neighborhood animals became

These are just the latest events in rural Sanilac, Tuscola,
Lapeer, St. Clair and Huron counties (the 'thumb area').

This latest flap seems to have begun in late November, 1997 when
a Genesee County Deputy Sheriff drove under an unmoving and
massive lit object on US-23 five miles south of Flint.  He
reported his sighting to Michigan MUFON.  A few days later,
December 1, 1997, a Marlette man watches a massive lit object
hovering motionless above Peck, Michigan in southern Sanilac
County.  It vanished into thin air when two airplanes approached
it (military?)

On December 13th, a southern Sanilac County Police Officer,
along with his partner and an entire family, witnessed a UFO
hovering over Brown City for upwards of an hour before it
drifted off.  Official police documents show this event as
actually occurring and further show Selfridge Air National Guard
in Mount Clemens, Michigan advising the police dispatcher "that
it was probably a helicopter that was sighted and there was
nothing much that could be done from that end."  I've spoken to
one of the two police officers and I can tell you that the sound
of his voice alone told me that he was witness to something
other than a helicopter.

Two nights later, on December 15, 1997, a Marlette, Michigan
woman watched a huge silent saucer, with round lights on the
bottom of the craft that were each much larger than the full
moon, drift slowly above her home.

A flap occurred in this area in 1993 as documented by Michigan
MUFON.  The Kingston, Caro and Cass City areas had multiple
sightings of hovering triangles, one possibly 500 feet wide.
Apparently, a past Michigan MUFON State Director had possession
of a videotape of one of these objects.

Michigan's thumb area has played host to other unusual
phenomenon.  Crop formations, Bigfoot and mysterious underground

Dr. W.C. Levengood has studied the October 1995 Bad Axe (Huron
County) crop formation and found it to be a legitimate
formation, although far from geometrical or circular in design.
It contained the earmark molecular changes and high heat
application to the vegetation spurred a growth of a black sooty

In February 1996 several bizarre underground explosions shook
Ellington, Michigan (between Cass City and Caro).  Michigan
State University scientists, in 1997, verified that there were
no earthquakes in Michigan since 1994 when one occurred west of

If anyone has any information on any of these events or has had
any other experiences taking place in Michigan's thumb, please
contact me at jeff.westover@mailexcite.com.  I'm also looking
for people with videocams and other equiptment for skywatching
to assist me.
