UFO In Kearney?

This week marked the anniversary of some out of this world

It was 50 years ago, that this station reported an encounter
with a spacecraft.

Back in 1957, a grain buyer known by the name of Reinhold
Schmidt was driving through Kearney, when he claimed to have
encounted German speaking "Saturnians from Saturn." Schmidt
claimed they stalled his car, and took him aboard thier cigar
shaped spaceship. And now, 50 years later, Bob Ayres is a local
resident still trying to piece the puzzle together.

"I believe he saw something, but I believe it was very possibly
enhanced. The encounter that he had, he claims that he went
aboard and talked to space people, and they told Schmidt about
global warming," said Ayres.

So some say that Schmidt was a little crazy, but according to
official documentation, he appeared to be just fine.

"They took him in for mental evaluation, and there was rumors
that he was a little bit off.

But I saw the report at the courthouse ten years later. And it
said he passed his mental test, and seemed normal," explained

But something not so normal about that time, was the fact that
there was another encounter by a farmer that same day. The
farmer's tractor stalled, and he apparently had strange time
himself. Bob was lucky enough to interview the farmer's brother,
and this is what he said.

"Well, he said, my brother had a strange experience out there at
the same time."

So definately some inconclusive evidence. But there are a couple
things that we can look for some reasoning behind these reports.

"There were some movies that came out and I think it could have
influenced a lot of things.

To me, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" comes to mind," said

And the other thing that comes to mind, is of course a hoax.

"I'm going to think probably 90 percent. Because a lot of people
aren't trained observers. And maybe some people drink I

And needless to say, wether it did or did not happen, it is a
good story.

Keith tells us that the Air Force went to the alleged location
the very next day. And deemed the whole occurence a hoax.
