The UFO Phenomenon

Sci-fi author recalls childhood encounter with V-shaped UFO

What Dan Harary writes might be science fiction, but what he saw as a child one afternoon back in 1970 was very much the real deal.
Born in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Harary hadn't thought much at all about the possibility of alien visitors until one day in 1970 when he saw something that would stick with him for the rest of his life.

He was 14 years old at the time and his father had been driving him home from Hebrew school when he caught sight of something hovering nearby and called out for him to pull over.

What he saw - a huge silver V-shaped UFO - left him struggling to believe his own eyes.

"It was maybe 200 feet in the air, completely silent, and it was just hovering," he told Mail Online. "It just went very, very slowly over my neighborhood, and I could not believe what I was seeing."

"My father looked at it like he was thinking about what he had to buy at the grocery store the next day. He had no interest. Just the look on my father's face was like he'd seen it a hundred times already."
When they got home, Harary phoned up a local newspaper and was told that they had received a number of calls about the object. Nothing about it, however, was ever published.

Thinking back on the incident now, the 66-year-old believes that his father - who was a military engineer who had worked on several top secret projects - knew exactly what the object was.

He even recalled being given a "knowing wink" at the time, but his dad said nothing about it.

Harary would go on to see other UFOs during his lifetime, but he never did find out what the object was that he had seen that day back in 1970.

His father, who died in 2017, ultimately took anything he might have known about it to his grave.

Dan Harary's new book - After They Came - is available to buy on Amazon now.

I had to look the guy up as I am a sci fi book fan and never heard of him.   He only wrote one sci fi book so far and he was a publicist before 2020. His first two books were stories about women and his autobiography.

Maybe it was an old logging balloon.
