Fireworks and UFOs

Who knew playing around with some bottle rockets would result in Fireworks and UFOs

Richard was eight years old back in 1983 in his home town of Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County, NY. It was early evening on June 28, Richard and a couple of his friends were shooting off some small fireworks in preparation for the upcoming 4th of July display his family was planning. Of course his parents were supervising the boy’s activities. They had just tested some bottle rockets and with the help of his dad were prepping some skyrocket mortars. They had just tested a couple of the rockets when something strange happened.

Exorcist and the UFO

Who knew going to a Drive-in movie, would result in the Exorcist and the UFO.

Dee told me it was early June in 1974. Songs like “Band On The Run” by Paul McCartney & Wings was high on the charts. She, along with five of her friends, had just graduated from high school, and they decided to go to the drive-in movies, at the now defunct East Park Drive-in Theater. Of course they all thought it would be “cool” go to the midnight showing of The Exorcist.
