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. ----- Source: CSICOP.Org http://tinyurl.com/6npl5qx November/December 2011 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 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: More at site... ----- This is absurd. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
