John Winthrop

1639 – Massachusetts

At some point during 1639, Massachusetts colonial governor John Winthrop (you’ve heard about him in history class) transcribed in his journal what may possibly one of the first-ever UFO sightings of all time. Winthrop writes, “One James Everell, a sober, discreet man, and two others, saw a great light in the night at Muddy River.” Winthrop then describes the exact the length of the UFO as about 9 feet long, stating that it was “as swift as an arrow” before contracting into, what witnesses and Winthrop called, “the shape of a swine.”
