UFOINFO E-mail Report

Location: NY Thruway

Date: 1975

Description: Gentlemen,

Your site describes a sighting in 1975 on the NY Thruway. My father, who passed away several years ago, was as good of an observer as I have ever met. In 1975 (I don't recall the date either) he returned home seeming reluctant to speak. Usually when he was reluctant to speak, it was because one of us was about to find out that he or she did something very wrong...and nobody wanted to find out who or what it was. About 20 minutes after he came home he said "I saw something tonight." Still nobody wanted to take the bait. My mother finally asked, "What did you see?" He said, "I don't know." This stopped everyone because he was able to distinguish things at great distances or moving through the woods that we would only see after he pointed to them and after we had about ten times the amount of time to discern them. He then said that he was on the New York Thruway and proceeded to describe what he saw in much the same way as the truck driver on your site did. We all stood frozen in our spots. I asked if it could have been a plane or helicopter. He flatly stated that "It was no plane. There is nothing that I know of that is that big that is able to stand still in the sky and then move that fast...nothing." He was deadly serious. He never said another word about UFO's or of his experience that evening. His expression and his statements that evening are the only reason why I will always believe that such things do exist and are not from our beautiful little planet. Please tell your truck driver that I believe him. Other than the individuals responsible for this website, who are welcome to contact me by e-mail, you can also provide my name and e-mail address to your trucker (if he feels that he needs a sanity check).
I know of no additional details.

My sincere thanks to you and to the trucker.
