reported two separate sightings of unusual aerial objects on consecutive
nights. In both instances the UFOs released or ejected a single small light

- On Thursday, Dec. 31, 1998, while walking
her dog in a residential district of Mt. Healthy, Ohio (Hamilton County),
"Mrs. H." (name is withheld for privacy) reported seeing a large
stationary object with "very bright" steady white light in what
