Report by Jerry Pippin


Not the real deal, but who knows what was 50,000
feet above the cloud deck over O'Hare that day?

Program Introduction

Dr. Richard Haines, Chief Scientist of NARCAP (National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena), has released his detailed and extensively researched report on the O'Hare UFO sighting that occurred on Election Day afternoon, November 7, 2006.

In our own in depth examination of this incident, we present two eyewitness interviews, a third report from CNN, and an interview with the news reporter who broke the story for the Chicago Tribune. In addition, Sam Maranto, Illinois State Director of MUFON, who personally investigated the incident, tells Jerry about the events and his findings.

Everyone agrees that it was real and witnessed by hundreds if not thousands of airline passengers, airport visitors and airline employees, but was it from another world?
