One of the “better” recorded UFO sightings that you will come across with in a while. This police recording of a UFO is one of the few of this type where you can hear the shrill sound emitted by the UFO for a few minutes before disappearing completely from view.
Here below we present the original recording of the mysterious UFO encounter, let us know what you think about the recording and this mysterious UFO sightings that only a few people know about.
The UFO sightings occurred when a strange light appeared on the Columbia river in the early hours of March 17, 1981 when Sergeant Russel Yokum, from the Saint Helens Police department from Oregon was driving his patrol on Highway 30 west of Columbia River. Saint Helens is a small town just over 32 kilometers northwest of Portland. At 4:03 am, Sgt. Yokum spotted a bright light moving across the river toward the Portland Airport. The planes passing through the area often, but this was extraordinarily bright light, illuminating both the river as if it were day. Clearly, the officer realized it wasn’t just an ordinary plane or man-made aircraft. he radioed headquarters as he decided to get closer to the place to look.
Near the county courthouse, located on the shore of the Columbia River, he found a good place from which to track the mysterious light. Soon reinforcements arrived, officers Ricky Tom Cade and McCartney were present at the site, as well as some civilians who had been attracted by the unusual phenomena in the vicinity of the river. Officer Yokum was in touch via radio with Donald Askins, who was in a riverfront home in Ridgefield, Washington State, southeast of Saints Helens, he was lucky enough to hear the police report on his CB radio. Askins was nicknamed Lucky 13.
At first there was extreme confusion among the officers due to the weather conditions as they described the light to Askins. According to the officers, the light was moving but Askins stated that the light he was seeing is completely stationary. It turned out that the light that the officers were seeing originated from Sauvie Island, and was in fact artificial man-made light. Because of the fog, it appeared as if the light was moving up and down. When officers realized this, they turned to the south where the mysterious UFO was located as described by “Lucky 13.”
A mysterious light was heard coming from the mysterious light hovering above the river and officers recorded it with a portable audio recorded. The next 30 minutes, recorded on cassette and presented at the Center for UFO Studies J. Allen Hynek for analysis, reveal a real-life drama in which a group of people are trying to understand a mysterious encounter with an unidentified flying object.
Yokum and Cade said the light was spherical, but without a visible structure. As for the color, Yokum said it was an orange light while Cade said it was an orange to red light. The spherical light flew over the river at a height of between 25 and 30 meters, causing a big flash in the water. The estimated size of the UFO was 10 meters in diameter.
According to analysis, the sound shows two peaks of between 1,000 and 3,000 hertz (cycles p / sec). When the tape is played backwards, the data remained unchanged. Both Askins as Yokum heard a change in tone while observing the object, as if a turbine was ignited shortly before the UFO vanished without a trace.
