A UFO Sighting...Then a Bigfoot Encounter. Is it Just a Coincidence?

A UFO Sighting Then a Bigfoot Encounter. Is it Just a Coincidence?

From Researcher: Stan Gordon

During the afternoon of May 14, 2018 at a rural location in Greene County, Pennsylvania, a woman was closing a bedroom window as a storm was approaching. When she looked out the window, she noticed that about 150 feet away, a strange object was hovering above the neighbor’s house. The object was described as a dark hat-like saucer shaped object about 20-25 feet in length and approximately 8-10 feet high. As the witness watched, the object banked then moved off through the sky toward the southeast and was lost from sight.

It was two days later not that far away at a location between Greene and Washington County that another strange incident occurred. That afternoon, the driver of a car noticed a truck pulled over to the side of the road. There was a person inside the truck as well as a person standing outside of it. They were both pointing toward a hillside. The driver of the car slowed down to look and saw what appeared to be an upright creature, about 6 ½ to 7 feet tall covered with black or brown hair. The creature was walking on two legs and had stepped out of the tree line. The witness was startled, and realized that this thing had no muzzle like a bear. The creature took 4 or 5 steps then went back into the woods and was gone. The witness believed that what was seen was likely a Bigfoot.

On the evening of July 14, 2018 a driver was passing through a business area in a suburb of Pittsburgh when he noticed something unusual. His attention was drawn to a luminous orange object hovering about 100 feet over the area. The witness said that it was difficult to describe the shape but it was similar to a lantern but not round like a sphere. The silent object suddenly began to move off from a hovering position and began to exit the area through the sky at the same altitude it had been hovering. The object moved toward the north and was lost in the distance. The driver pointed the object out to a pedestrian who was walking nearby while it was over the area.

It was within the hour, and only miles away from where the UFO had been reported, that a family having a picnic had a close encounter with a Bigfoot. You can read the account here.


Jesus Painting Survives Inferno

WAKEFIELD, Mass. - An historic Wakefield church went up in flames in Tuesday night.

The First Baptist Church suffered an apparent lightning strike during the severe weather moving across Massachusetts.

Crews began dismantling the remnants of the historic landmark in the rain Wednesday morning.

The 150-year-old building will now be torn down completely.

Just one painting hanging in the front entrance of the church was left behind, nearly untouched.

It has just a few little drips on it, but otherwise, the painting depicting Jesus Christ survived the inferno Tuesday night and now resides inside a parishioners' house.

Although there is no official cause yet, several residents say they did see the steeple hit by lightning and they report that set off a fire that grew to seven alarms. Read more at A painting of Jesus was the only thing to survive a hellish inferno
