Back In The Day - April 9, 1972: Credible Witness Writes Of
Wanaque UFOs
By Bryan LaPlaca

The UFO sightings over the Wanaque Reservoir in the 1960s are
remembered again from time to time by locals, and 40 years ago,
longtime Suburban Trends editor Howard Ball wrote a lengthy
firsthand account of the sightings and their aftermath.

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.
