Forty years ago, Ball told his tale amidst contemporary reports of yet another UFO seen over the reservoir a few minutes after a UFO was reported in Paterson by two policemen. UFOs conjured up images of little green men, flying saucers and deadly light beams, but most sightings were simply unexplainable, Ball said. "Reporting one also causes your friends to look at you funny and your bartender to cut you off well before you fall off the stool," he said. "You start getting letters from strange people all over the country, and your mother calls up and asks if you’re working too hard, and are you still taking your Ovaltine before bed?" Ball said he himself had seen something weird in the sky early one evening in January 1966 while driving to work as the suburban editor of Paterson News.
