Case 111972: Three witnesses, Mathew, Juola and Francesca [last names withheld], plus six other adults and four children, sighted something that few of us have – a cylinder-shaped craft between three and six, football fields long. Well, in the US, that would be between 900 feet to 1,800 feet long (275 meters to 549 meters). The craft was, more or less, a classic “cigar” shape with white lights or observation windows stretching the entire length. The primary witness, Mathew, who provided the drawing (see below), claims that the observation lasted two or three minutes. The craft had a dark surface, hovered, changed direction, and turned abruptly. There were no sounds or emissions and the object was approximately 6° above the horizon. At the end of the sighting, the craft departed at “hypersonic acceleration” (five or more times the speed of sound). Shortly after the sighting, an aircraft appeared in the same region. The sighting took place in Webster, Massachusetts. Webster is on the state line between Massachusetts and Connecticut, approximately 45 miles southwest of Boston.
