Animal Effect Cases
Yorktown, New York
March 24, 1983
Animal Reaction Feature:
When a group of V-shaped lights approached and passed almost directly
overhead, a family’s pet cat, appearing frightened with its hair standing
on end and its tail straight up, ran into the house.
Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
At 8:45 pm, A Yorktown man with an aerospace background saw a V-formation
of lights that circled his home twice. He estimated its altitude at 1500 feet
and he heard a very quiet sound coming from it.
Jerry Karp, advertising executive, who lived a half mile away from the above
location, noticed bright lights through his window. He went outdoors
and saw a V-shaped series of lights approaching and called his family to come
out and look at them. When the lights were at their closest point to
them (almost overhead), the cat reacted as described above. At this
point the object turned 90 degrees and moved away. When overhead, they
heard an engine-like sound that was not loud but clearly audible.
