UFO Sighting – August 19th, 1965- Cherry Creek, New York

On a warm summer evening we can assume Harold Butcher was milking the cows on his father’s Cherry Creek farm when he heard a bull outside make a noise “Like I have never heard come from an animal before.” Outside the bull was tied to the fence but what he noticed more was a football shaped craft hovering above the ground. The unidentified object was about 50 feet long and 20 feet thick hovering above the trees and the barn. The object was admitting a red vapor from its underside as it descended and just as quickly ascended with the sound of a sonic boom. This was approximately at 8:20pm. Once the authorities were notified and on their way at about 9pm the object returned and once again hovered, descended, and ascended as quickly as it came. The children suffered some stomach illness and investigators noted that the area around where the UFO was that the vegetation was bent and singed. No explanation was given to the sighting of the UFO and to this day no one knows what to make of the strange flying object that appeared over a farm in Cherry Creek.
