The mystery of the 1977 Flora UFO Sightings - mississippi

Below is a report on the lesser well known ufo event that occurred over Flora in mississippi in 1977. What makes this sighting exceptional was that it was witnessed by up to 24 policemen. If you know more about this interesting sighting, or were even a witness then please respond to this post - its important people know went on here.

Here is the link to the news video on this report ( i Can't seem to add it into the site.).

On Feb. 10, 1977, nearly two dozen law enforcement officers witnessed a giant floating object above the tree line in a cotton field off a rural Madison County road near Flora. A former deputy who said he saw the UFO told his story to WAPT's Darren Dedo. The deputy wanted his identity to be protected, so for the story, Dedo called him Joe.

"I'll tell you what though, most of them around here, you don't realize how many people have had a close encounter with what this is," Joe said. "It was approximately 15 to 18 feet off the ground, blue in color, kind of metallic blue, portholes around the center of it, shaped like an old spinning top kids use to use."

Madison County sheriff's Deputy Kenny Creel was also there that night. His description of what happened made the Flora incident world-famous. Three decades later, his cousin, Michael Creel, said the deputy is tight lipped about it.

He didn't really talk about it anymore. He said if he knew it was going to cause such a ruckus, he would have never said anything about it," Michael Creel said.

Dedo spoke with Kenny Creel about the UFO he supposedly saw some 34 years ago. He didn't want to go on camera, but he did tell Dedo by phone that he actually made the whole thing up -- that it was some kind of a joke. But, others aren't so sure about that.

If only we could get 24 policemen and a clear video with a few impossible maneuvers thrown in for good measure. Then we could put this controversy to bed in time for the oil to run out.

in about 1986-87 my husband, brother and son saw a UFO on hwy 22, the road between Flora and Canton. We knew nothing of the 77 sighting until recently. The funny thing is that they don't talk about it. If you mention it they say 'oh, yeah, I remember that.' My husband is not the type to make things up and my son was 7-8 at the time and stands by his story. Around this same time period there was also a mysterious sonic boom heard in 3 counyies that was never explained.

I also saw the object. However, my childhood friend and i saw it over Tinsley, Ms. in Yazoo county. I was 16 at the time. We told our parents, after a while we never mentioned it because no one believed us. Im a retired Army lieutenant Colonel and now live outside Flora.
