Ohio State highway patrolman sees UFO

Many law enforcement officers have seen UFOs. One who observed a UFO was Dave Burlile, who lives in Mt. Sterling. In 1958, Dave was an Ohio State highway patrolman working out of the Georgetown post. He and his partner, Robert D. Young, were riding in Young's patrol car when they had a daytime sighting. Dave described it as a saucer-shaped object hovering about 500 feet in the sky and was very distinct. They immediately went back to the patrol post and the dispatcher, Ray Mason, also observed it. Together, the three estimated the UFO to be 100 feet in diameter. After a few minutes, the UFO rose to about 1,000 feet in the sky and then slowly rose at an angle and the farther it went, the faster it went. Dave reported his sighting to the State Highway Patrol Headquarters in Wilmington. Dr. J. Allen Hynek, chief consultant to the Air Force, told Dave that it was temperature inversion in the atmosphere. After that, Dave's opinion of Hynek diminished.
