Seen a UFO? A new NY UFO Meetup group, who advocates that "UFO witnesses be treated fairly and with respect," wants you to know you're not alone.
John Capp, a former computer consultant who lives in Sheepshead Bay and a member of the group, has set up a 24-hour UFO hotline to document all of the strange sightings in the sky above our city.
"How is anybody going to report this stuff if everyone is discouraging them?" he told The New York Post. "I'm looking at witnesses as a resource rather than someone to slam around."
Capp also tells the Post that since beginning the hotline in February he's fielded 2 dozen calls--the most significant being a woman reporting three lights moving in unison in the sky above Park Slope.
Acording to the NY UFO Meetup group's website, UFO Media Matters, "If you wish to talk someone or have us document your sightings or paranormal activity please call us. All calls are held in stick confidence. If you have to leave a message we will get back to you on the same day. This hot line is 24 / 7 days a week. Call 347-298-9020."
Is Capp on to something? There's been a rash of apparent UFO sightings in New York lately.
Back in October people gathered on street corners to look up at small white objects floating around during the daytime. Some theorized the objects were actually just balloons from a Times Square event promoting Spanish Tourism.
