Vincent snapped this photo in 1966 by Lake Tiorati
It was just before Christmas in 1966, when
twenty-three-year old Vincent and two pals decided to do a little winter
fishing. The winter weather was rather temperate for December so they decided
to do their fishing at a spot along the Hudson River, about 40 miles north of
New York City.
To the east of them, on the shore of the
Hudson, was the Indian Point Nuclear Power Station. On the western shore of
Hudson was Harriman State Park.
The three young men were involved with the
art of their fishing when suddenly something strange was spotted in the sky
over or near Lake Tiorati deep in the Harriman forests.
Vincent tells us, “Suddenly a rare object
of bronze color appeared, making no noise and its size was approximately 6
Twenty-three-year old Vincent snapped four
photos. Later the US Air Force – Project Blue Book representatives later did a
scant investigation and quickly labeled the sighting photos a hoax. Later the
National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) studied the
photos and interviewed the three men who witnessed the UFO event. NICAP
investigators found no evidence of any hoax. This photo is in the archives of
the Best Photos of UFOs website. (NICAP case 661218)
Lastly, it should be noted that the Indian
Point Nuclear Power facility is just a mere three miles to the east of Lake
Tiorati. The nuclear facility was ground zero for many high visibility Triangle
and Chevron UFO sightings in the 1970s and 1980s.
