Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings

Front Cover
There is no way you can determine if the "truth is out there" unless someone reveals it. Now you can discover the truth that will rip open the entire UFO phenomenon, when you read Night Siege by Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Philip J. Imbrogno, and Bob Pratt.

The late Dr. Hynek was a famous astrologer who was a consultant to the Air Force's "Project Blue Book" UFO investigation and later had a cameo in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." He began the research that was continued by science educator Imbrogno and journalist Pratt. What they uncovered was that thousands of people have been seeing strange objects in the sky?and sometimes even contacting strange beings?in the Hudson Valley just north of New York City.

·Seven thousand reported sightings
·Witnesses from all walks of life
·Reports from strangers corroborate what others saw
·A huge object that hovers and floats through the sky almost silently
·Encounters with entities who looked like they had gray skin . . . or were reptilian
·Physical evidence that something strange took place

The first edition of Night Siege is widely known as a classic in the UFO field for its in-depth reporting. It has now been updated to cover the latest sightings and close encounters. The book features sixteen photos, including one of a UFO taken by a law enforcement official.

To this day, the military, the media, and scientists have remained silent about the Hudson Valley phenomenon. If you want to find out the amazing secrets of UFOs just minutes from New York City, you must get Night Siege.

Excellent - For anyone who lived in Connecticut and New York during 1983 to 1984, this is a must read. The amount of research detailing the thousands of witnesses that filed official reports is astounding. Dr. Hynek, Mr. Imbrogno and Mr. Pratt cover the extensive comments, concerns and amazement of many watching these low flying large triangles. These craft(s) were estimated to be 300 to 1,000 feet long, black or gunmetal in color, triangular in shape that cruised over homes, towns and one case coming to within a few feet of the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor. The book also goes into detail surrounding local and NY FAA office reactions as well as local Police offices. I would like to especially thank the local police in the various towns of CT and NY who stepped forward, admitted what they saw, came to the aid of the people who needed comfort during this time. The people counted on the one group they could trust and the police "served the public" faithfully. The book also covers the News Media from CT and NY offices during this time. I would recommend this book.

Great book one of the best books I read so far. It takes place in my hometown and I know a couple of people who are in the book they were my neighbors. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves these types of reports. I have seen it back in the 80's in my front yard.
