Apparently those super-sleuths James McGaha and Joe Knickell
from the Skeptical Enquirer have solved the Exeter case.

Apparently the 60 to 100 foot wide, blood-red  object that
eighteen-year-old Norman Muscarello and Police Officer Eugene
Bertrand saw arising from the trees a few hundred feet away can
be easily explained by the director lights on a refuelling
tanker at twenty thousand feet.

Special Report
James McGaha and Joe Nickell
Volume 35.6, November/December 2011

One of the great unsolved UFO cases - which provoked endless
controversy between True Believers and Doubting Thomases - has
at long last succumbed to investigation. The 1965 Exeter mystery
is now explained.

It has been considered "one of the best-documented UFO
accounts on record" (APRO Bulletin 1965) and "one of the
most spectacular and best-corroborated UFO close encounters of
all time" (Davenport and Geremia 2001). What journalist John
G. Fuller would subsequently relate in his book Incident at
Exeter (1966) began in the early hours of a September morning in
1965 near a small town in southeastern New Hampshire. It has
never been satisfactorily explained - until now.

Exeter Incident

The story begins at 12:30 AM on September 3, 1965, at Exeter,
New Hampshire. A policeman cruising on Route 101 came upon a
woman parked beside the road. She told him excitedly that a
flying object with red flashing lights had chased her for some
distance. She pointed to a bright light on the horizon. The
policeman, Eugene Bertrand, watched it for a short time and,
unimpressed, left after reassuring the woman there was nothing
to worry about.

Then at 2:24 AM, eighteen-year-old Norman Muscarello burst into
the Exeter police station, "white, and shaking". He had been
hitchhiking along Route 150 toward his home in Exeter when he
saw what he called "the Thing", as big as or bigger than a house
(Fuller 1966, 11). As Muscarello (1965) later described it in a
signed statement:

This is absurd.
