UFO sightings happen on a pretty regular basis all around the world. So it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that extraterrestrials would want to check out Kalamazoo and the state of Michigan to explore the available fine cuisine, breweries and fun places to visit right?  Given that, lets look at some of the most famous UFO sightings in our state over the years.

November 23rd, 1953: Two US Air Force pilots disappear over Lake Superior while chasing an unidentified flying object, The US Air Force reported the two had crashed chasing a Canadian Air Force jet however, Canadian Air Force officials reported no Canadian Air Force activity took place anywhere near the area on the reported night of the incident.

One Week in March of 1966: Dexter Michigan 911 lines are flooded with calls for almost a complete week as some of the most busy activity took place over the skies in Michigan. The US Air Force didn't want to be bothered and blew it off as "swamp gas" (whatever that is) but congressmen Gerald R. Ford thought enough about it to take it to Washington for an investigation claiming the folks in Michigan deserved a better explanation then swamp gas.

March 8th 1994: Over 60 calls fill the 911 dispatch as witnesses from Holland to Ludington reported Christmas like lights blinking and flashing in the night skies. The lights, reported to be moving in frenzied, flickering fashion, were called in by some witnesses who felt silly calling giving some credibility to the validity of the sightings.  Many second guessing themselves wondering if what they had seen were they low flying planes or weather balloons.  The incident made national headlines and even became a History Channel special.

June 28th 2019: WRKR DJ  Bobby Guy does a report on a amateur video shot over the skies of Kalamazoo. The footage is short and shaky at times but once the UFO comes into full range it will have you asking more questions than getting answers about what flies above our skies.
