Dolan ’84 will be watching out for aliens in Exeter, NH
8/21/14

Watch out for aliens at the fifth annual UFO Festival lecture program, Saturday, Aug. 30 at the Exeter, NH Town Hall, 1 Front St. where Richard Dolan, AU Class of 1984, will be one of several speakers marking the “Incident in Exeter,” which occurred Sept. 3, 1965.

Norman Muscarello was hitchhiking home when he spotted a 90-foot-wide, brightly lit object. Muscarello later returned with Officer Eugene Betrand and the two watched the object fly out of the woods and up into the sky. Several other witnesses reported seeing the object during this same time, including Officer David Hunt. The incident was investigated by the Air Force but officials couldn’t identify the object and the mystery remains unsolved.

The UFO Festival is sponsored by the Exeter Kiwanis Club and is family friendly. Additionally festivities will be conducted outside the town hall, in Founders Park, and at the Exeter Public Library. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to children’s charities and children’s/community programs. For more information, please visit: www.exeterufofestival.org
