January 18, 1644

On January 18, 1644, the first documented case of a USO/UFO (Unidentified Submerged Object/Unindentified Flying Object) was made. John Winthrop’s, the Governor of Massachusetts, diary had an entry detailing the event. In it, he stated that three men in a boat in the Boston Harbor observed at midnight two lights rise up and out from the water, fly into the air and speed towards the city of Boston. At the time, people thought either the men were drinking or they saw a devil or ghost. Today, we know that’s not true. Either they were drinking or they saw aliens.
