Meeting with The Other Witness

Last week I posted a story about meeting up with the other witness to the Gagetown UFO sighting.  The meeting did indeed happen last Friday.  Today's post provides some details on that.

For twenty-six years I have held on to a not-so-closely-guarded secret.  I saw an alien spaceship.  I'm not publishing many details on that yet because my story may be featured in a documentary a production company is working on in association with Lue Elizondo and To The Stars Academy and I want to see what happens with that and how much they want me to reveal about it.  I have not told many people because, obviously, when you tell most people you have seen a UFO they think you're crazy or mistaken.  Often both.

Until recently I have only spoken about this with close friends.  I may not even have told anyone had it not been for one key detail.  There was another witness.  I have someone to corroborate at least part of my story.  I've mentioned this person in previous blog posts but did not want to say his name because he was even more guarded with this than I was.  He has concerns about being known in his tight-knit community as that UFO Guy.  I share the same concerns, so I get it, but I feel like by now I'm at the point of no return and I have to just trudge forward with this thing.  He is starting to get to that point, I think, because last Friday he said, "What do I have to lose" and he gave me permission to mention his first name in my blog.  I offered to use a pseudonym but he said the first name was OK.  It is Mike.

Plattsburgh Starbucks
Mike and I met up at the Starbucks on Cornelia Street in Plattsburgh.  I recognized him right away even though it has been 26 years and he has changed a lot.  He did not recognize me, even though people tell me all the time that I have not changed much at all since college.  Mike probably did not recognize me because he and I never knew each other well.  We served together in the same Army Reserve unit but did not have much interaction other than on that one fateful night.

We were both students at Plattsburgh State during overlapping intervals but I do not remember ever seeing him around campus.  He was a couple years ahead of me and in a different major.  I was also really into College Radio and my fraternity so I tended to hang around with a couple insular groups of people who did not associate much with others - not that these groups were exclusive and did not want to include others, we just did not go out of our way to create opportunities for that because we did not have to.  We had the others in our groups to do things with.  Bottom line is, I never saw Mike around campus and since he was in a different platoon in our Reserve Unit and I was out in the Motor Pool in an entirely different building, I rarely saw him at Reserve drills either.

We started off with some small talk like careers, kids, recent to-do's, etc.  Mike told me about a trip he had taken to a junk yard to look for some rims for his car.  I told him about the Staffing Agency in Plattsburgh that I run and how I was planning to attend Homecoming that night.  Mike said he doesn't do Homecoming.  He has not kept in close touch with many people from school.

UFO Sighting

We then got into a discussion about the site we were at when we witnessed what I now refer to as the Gagetown UFO.  I showed him the area where I think it is, on Google Maps, with my phone.  He mentioned (for the second time) that sometimes governments will have Google obfuscate certain sections of maps, for national defense.  They do not put a black bar over things because that would just draw more attention to the sites.  Instead, they Photoshop the images to cover up what is there.  I told Mike that I had studied the maps of the location very carefully and there were a few sections that looked bluer than others, sections of trees that should have been the same shade of green as the sections around them but were instead slightly blue.

Mike was not sure about the location because the site where he would have been did not look the way he remembered it.  He recalled his site looking like the one that I thought was my site.  He also remembered being on the same side of the road as me.  I thought so too.  The site that I think was Mike's extends over both sides of the dirt road we traveled.  It is possible that in 26 years, part of his site got overgrown and then a new section was cleared on the other side of the road.

It is also possible I have the wrong site but for many reasons, discussed in a previous post about the site, I'm going with this location.  At the end of the day it does not really matter if we ever pinpoint the exact location.  The spot I found has an ammo pad which looks identical to where I was and would be a good backdrop for filming a narration of events.

Mike reiterated what he saw and I told him more about what I saw.  I had a couple printouts of crude sketches I had done on Microsoft Paint.  He did not see anything like what I had seen because he was behind the ship and at its closest point he would probably have been up to a quarter mile away from it.  All he saw was part of the light that emanated from one of the front quarter panels of the ship, whereas I saw the full body of the ship, about 100-200 yards away.  But because of his vantage point he saw it hovering for about half an hour whereas I only saw it for at most, seven minutes.  After it had glided away from me Mike continued to watch it for several more minutes until suddenly it zipped off into space in a streak of light.

The two of us had talked about all this twice before, over the past two months.  One new development which came out of those first two conversations was what happened to the third guy who was out there that night.  It was not just the two of us.  There was a third possible witness.  And here is where it helps to have another person to talk to about this because you cannot always remember every detail.  I had always thought there were four of us out there that night and that Mike was at the pad next to mine but he remembers there being three of us and that there was someone between us.  I am OK with deferring to his memory on that because he was walking around and more aware of our surroundings and I had my butt planted on a bench, so that I would not give up my position.

Mike also remembers that Guard 2 was not reachable on the field phone which led him to believe the guy was sleeping.  When we got picked up at the end of our guard shift Mike asked Guard 2 if he saw anything and the guy said he did not.  Guard 2 then immediately began making fun of Mike.  The two of us now wonder how Guard 2 could NOT have seen anything.  The ship was not by my pad the whole time.  It was only there from about 11:20 to 11:27 pm.  It came from the direction of Pads 1 and 2 and traveled away from them.  If Mike saw the light from the ship for more like a half hour then Guard 2 had to have seen something.

The only way Guard 2 could have not seen anything was if he was asleep, like Mike speculates.  But sleeping on guard duty in the Army is a Cardinal Rule that you never break.  Depending on what happens while asleep, you could be Court Martialed for that.  You just do not do it.

So what happened to Guard 2?

Post your thoughts below in the Comments section or on the David Marceau Facebook Page.

I'll write more of my thoughts on what happened in tomorrow's post.

Plans with the Other Witness

Western Connecticut UFO Conference

I will attend the Western Connecticut UFO Conference this Saturday at the Danbury Public Library.  They will be discussing sightings.  I hope to meet some of my readers there.

Western Connecticut UFO Conference

I haven't mentioned many details about my own sighting in this blog yet.  This is due in part to the fact that I may be featured in a documentary and I don't want to give everything away ahead of its broadcast.  Another reason is because I want my radio/podcast show to be about the folks I interview, not so much about me.  Ironically (or hypocritically?) it will prospectively be called The David Marceau Show.  That notwithstanding, I do want it to be about my guests.

UFO Witness

Today, though, I'm talking a bit about my sighting only to the extent that it pertains to what I'm doing later.  I will be attending my undergrad alma mater homecoming while visiting my Upstate New York Staffing office.  While I'm in town I thought it would be nice to reunite with someone who is integral to my sighting story.

The night I saw the spacecraft there was another witness.  He was at least a half a mile down the road so his perspective was much different from mine.  He didn't see as much but he saw it for a longer period than I did because being farther away he was able to see more but it was smaller and not as well-lit.

I have not seen this person in over 25 years.  Other than this incident we had no reason to keep in touch, no common friends or associations.  But because of our mutual sighting I have tried to look him up countless times over the decades.  I was unable to find him for a long time, first because I had his name wrong.  I was close but the variation on the spelling was enough to make him a completely different person than the one I was looking for.  He has also kept a low profile and does not have a large footprint on the web - figures, the one person I wanted to track down for over half of my life doesn't cast a shadow on the internet.

When the folks at the production company started talking to me about covering my story they suggested I track this other witness down to include him in it.  By this point I had figured out the correct spelling of his name and I used that info to scour the internet for any kind of breadcrumbs on him.  I finally succeeded at the end of August and made contact.

Our first call started off awkwardly.  As one can imagine, when someone calls out of the blue and says, hey, you probably don't remember me but I'm that guy who saw the UFO with you 26 years ago, it takes a few minutes to break the ice.  But we ended up talking for like 40 minutes that day and I think we both ended the call with an odd combination of both peace and excitement.

We spoke one other time for a few minutes, after the associate producer of the documentary talked to him and that was it.  Since I'm going to be in his neck of the woods for a day I thought it would be nice to meet up and grab coffee.  I'd like to exchange some more history of the past three decades and also trade more notes on what we each saw.  On that first call he was able to recount things I had either forgotten or had never known and vice versa.  I want to know more.

UFO Shame

If at this point the reader wonders why I'm not mentioning this person's name it's because, for various reasons, he's not ready to talk about it publicly.  Even naming those reasons would risk exposing him so I'm not going to go into it any further.  I will briefly mention how it went in a blog post next week but there may not be many details on what we discussed.

Again, I will attend the Western Connecticut UFO Conference this Saturday at the Danbury Public Library.  They will be discussing sightings.  I hope to meet some of my readers there.

First UFO Sighting Witness Interview

Yesterday I completed my first guest interview.  It went really well.  My guest traveled from about an hour away to meet with me.  I appreciated her doing that.


UFO Podcast


I Saw One Too

At first we were both a little nervous but once we got into the telling of her story the conversation flowed very naturally.  I had a lot of questions prepared but found that I didn't need to do it Q&A style because it was a pretty normal conversation except that we were discussing an abnormal topic - something taboo that most people don't like to talk about.  Overall, though, I was really happy with the playback as far as the content goes.

The production was a different story.  I had some help from the one podcast buddy I've mentioned but working with an iPad and iPhone doesn't produce studio-quality sound or picture.  I can make the sound work, with some minor editing.  But the images won't work.  The files are huge, for one thing.  And we really should have had a three camera shoot but we only had two cameras.

Later in the day I met up with one of my other podcast buddies.  After using him as a sounding board I decided I should scrap the video production all together, for now, and just stick with the podcast.  That will make things a lot easier until I get off the ground.  For now I just need to focus on getting those first few guests and completing more interviews so I can launch the show.

This buddy also gave me a lead on another witness I can interview.  He's going to have her call me so we can discuss her sighting on the phone.  I'm looking forward to hearing from her.
