ASTRONOMER SPOTS UFO'S FROM SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY

FEBURARY 20, 1947 
HOLDEN OBSERVATORY, SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY NEW YORK

 
On the winter’s night of February 20, 1947, five months before the famous Roswell UFO incident, two classmates of Syracuse University along with an astronomer reportedly witnessed strange elliptical or circular objects crossing across the horizon, covering the stars as they passed at tremendous speed. The two classmates were walking around 10:15 PM on the school campus and noticing that the dome doors of Holden Observatory were not closed. Not only that the dome doors were left opened they also discovered that entrance door of the small building was also open as they passed it. Out of curiosity, the two classmates wandered into the ground floor and they noticed a 6 or 7-foot long refracting telescope that was suspended around 12 feet above the floor. It was used by a man who walked it back and forth rapidly in the length of the dome opening. When the astronomer noticed the two students as they climbed the platform, he was thanking God that the two were there. He invited them to take a look of his found to tell others that he was not crazy.
 
The man told the two students that he had been witnessing something not usual in the night sky. He then let the two to take a look what he’d been watching without giving them a clue. One of the two students grew in New York City so, he only had a chance to appreciate the beauty of the stars in the night sky on campus, especially using a telescope. He was in awe of the bright star field and then noticed a light passed his view in the dark sky. He then observed more after 20 or 30 seconds. He counted approximately twelve mysterious lights. After being puzzled of what he had seen, he then gave the telescope to his pal. After a few minutes, his pal looked as puzzled as him and the astronomer. The three men agreed that they had seen the same objects.
 
The three men were able to witness the details of these objects through the telescope. They all witnessed the same objects that appeared to have a greyish bottom, slightly lighter than the dark sky background. The objects had thin bright yellow orange trailing edge which appeared slightly rippling. All men noted that some of the objects appeared to be brighter than others. The astronomer assured the students that he had never seen anything like the mysterious objects.
 
After a couple of minutes, the students bid the astronomer a good night. That was the first and only time they met the astronomer. The two students have talked about the incident a number of times for many years.
