March 8, 1994: UFO Sightings in Southwest Michigan

On the evening of March 8th, 1994, police departments around west Michigan were getting calls inquiring about the strange lights that people were seeing in the sky. Several callers reported the U.F.O., it was even reported to be observed on radar.

These lights were not just seen by a few, there are reports of over 350 witnesses, including police officers. Some reports tell of a phone call to the National Weather Service and the objects showing up on their radar screen. One object was said to move 20 miles in 10 seconds time.

The History Channel’s “UFO Hunters” featured this story on one of their programs, because it was similar to sightings south of Michigan nine months afterwards. Here is the video of that story.

    I seem to recall an audio at that time of a mother calling 911, and reporting a thing over/near her neighbor’s barn, and her kids screaming in the background, “It’s getting closer, it’s coming this way!”

    I cannot find it however using Google and such.
