Strange UFO’s – E41

In this episode we talked with an 86 year old woman named Jane who had a close encounter, along with her husband, with a UFO in the early 1980’s.

The sighting occurred in broad daylight in the Salt Flats in Eastern Utah. After the incident, Jane and her husband calculated the distance to the Nevada state line and determined it to be around 15 miles. Here is a screen grab from Google Earth looking NE 15 miles from the Nevada border:

Prior to the interview, Jane sat down with her grand daughter and had her sketch out the overall shape and look of the UFO they encountered that day. Here is the original sketch:

After the interview, we created at 3D model of what the craft might have looked like. Here is an isometric view of the model based on the sketch above:

In Jane’s description of the event, a strange craft approached them and then levitated 2 or 3 yards from their location. The craft was levitating 5-10 feet off of the ground while rotating slowly in the air. It made almost no sound other than something like a quiet fan. Here is an animation of the object levitating in the air:

So what was this strange craft Jane and her husband experienced out on the flats? We may never know. But one thing is certain, Jane and her husband saw something strange that day and we are very grateful for Jane’s willingness to tell her story. THANK YOU JANE!

Types of Bigfoot Encounters

In this episode we talk about the different types of Bigfoot encounters (class A, class B, & Class C), as well as some possible signs that you might find in Bigfoot country.

Fill out ASTP’s Bigfoot Encounter Survey:

BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) – Classification System

CLASS A – ASTP Henderson sighting – clear sightings in circumstances where misinterpretation or misidentification of other animals can be ruled out with greater confidence. 

CLASS B – ASTP Twilight Zone Nightmare at 20,00 Feet sighting – Incidents where a possible sasquatch was observed at a great distance or in poor lighting conditions and incidents in any other circumstance that did not afford a clear view of the subject are considered Class B reports.

CLASS C – ASTP Bueller sighting – Second-hand reports, and any third-hand reports, or stories with an untraceable source, are considered Class C, because of the high potential for inaccuracy.

CLASS D – Added by ASTP (A Strange Thing Podcast) Boba Fett – Visual evidence of a Bigfoot such as twisted branches, foot prints, torn animal parts, and scattered campsites, etc.
