“flying Saucers” Reportedly Seen in Two Areas in Israel

Download PDF for this date

Inhabitants of two separate areas of Israel reported having seen flying saucers two distinct times last night. This is the first time flying saucers have been reported over Israel.

The first reports to the Israeli police came from the village of Mahne Yehuda where inhabitants claimed to have seen a flying saucer some 300 feet above the central market area. It was reported to look like a “round house” with smoke pouring out of its “windows” and flashing from the vicinity of Jordan-held Ramallah westward toward the Mediterranean Sea.

The second phenomenon was reported by Jerusalem inhabitants who described the flying saucer as cigar-shaped and moving “like lightning.” It was also observed travelling westward toward the sea.
