With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Full Description of event/sighting: When I was a Freshman in High School Here in Gooding I remember this sighting made front page headlines in our local paper and also made headlines in the Twin Falls Times News. I'm unsure what the exact date was but I was reminded about it because I got our local paper this week and in "The Early Files" from 20 years ago in the September 30, 1976 edition. Was the article about a Mr. Elmer McCormick, age 26, was going to work at 4:00 am and a huge bright light came from above and landed in the road ahead of him and made his car stall. I can't remember all of the details but it was quite interesting. He watched the light or lights for sometime and then they took off and his car started and away he went. Where this occurred is almost exactly 2 miles directly East of my house. We neither saw nor heard of anything that night.

I am going to try and look up in the Archives of The Times News when I get a chance. Maybe I can find the article. Thanks for Your time.

Thank you to the person for the interesting information.
