On June 17th, 2017 a husband and wife were sitting on their front porch around 10:45 pm. As the two sat on the porch the wife noticed what appeared to be several meteorites shooting across the night sky. At first, the wife dismissed it as an odd event, however thought they were nothing more than a shooting star. As the couple continued their conversation the wife stopped her husband mid-conversation and pointed out an object hovering above their neighbors house.

Six years before the Wright Brothers’ first flight in the small town of Aurora, TX was one of the most convincing UFO crashes in history. Between 1896 and 1897 there was a large amount of sightings, at least six that I could find, involving a cigar-shaped airship across the United States. This all culminated in Aurora, Texas on April 19th, 1897 when a cigar shaped craft crashed into a windmill that was located on Judge J.S. Proctor’s land. Among the crash debris was a being that was described as “not of this world” as well as a “martian” by the Army officer from Fort Worth.

Considering I was born and raised in Idaho, I like to keep tabs on strange events that happen around my hometown.
