late singer Mel Tormé reportedly observed a UFO
over New York City in August 1963. While walking his dog
at 2:00 one morning, Tormé saw a pinpoint of red
light in the night sky. As the object moved overhead,
he was able to distinguish a saucer-shaped craft behind
the red glow. He estimated its altitude to be about 5,000
feet. Suddenly, the UFO darted off in a southerly direction
only to come to an abrupt stop within a fraction of a
second. It began to perform figures of eights and loops.
Tormé, who had a pilot's license, had never seen
anything maneuver at high speed. The object's sharp turns
defied the laws of aerodynamics. After about five minutes,
the object took off and disappeared. Tormé believed
that what he saw was probably a craft from another world.
