NICAP's "The Year of the UFO" (March)
The month of March echoes across the archives of UFO history particularly because March of 1966 gave us the famous "swamp gas" sightings near Dexter, Michigan. However, as anybody familiar with the work of UFO researcher Wendy Connors should know, Dr. J. Allen Hynek never attributed some of the sightings to swamp gas -- his words were marsh gas. Connors (see a link above to her Faded Discs project) has the audio recording to prove it and has played the words on Errol Bruce-Knapp's "Strange Days...Indeed!" radio program (see Virtually Strange Network link above).
This month in 1966 also showered the USA with a wave of interesting UFO reports from Oklahoma, Michigan, New Hampshire and other states, aptly noted in the calendar. Other March incidents mentioned here from various years involve objects following cars, tracked on radar and photographed by apparently solid witnesses.
