Dr Hynek Said: “Taint Nothing But Swamp Gas!” Co Eds Still Disagree!

Exploring the Bizarre (KCORradio.com) hosts Tim Beckley and Tim Swartz make history again as they speak with BARBARA DELONG who was one of the original witnesses to the Ann Arbor/Dester/Hillsdale “Swamp Gas” saga as made infamous by the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek who was still on the payroll of Project Blue Book and told by his “bosses” to come up with an explanation — “or else!” On March 21, 1966, a group of young women in MacIntyre Residence at Hillsdale College saw strange, flashing lights hovering over the Arboretum. William “Bud” Van Horn, Hillsdale County civil defense director, went to the college and observed the lights rising to a point just below a nearby airport beacon and then settling down to earth again. Even though Hynek noted the “honest reporting by the young ladies at Hillsdale College,” he suggested the UFO sightings were the result of “swamp gas.” This week on Exploring the Bizarre, our guest is Barbara DeLong, who was one of the women at Hillsdale College who first saw the UFOs from a second story window in MacIntyre Residence. Barbara will discuss what she witnessed that night, and whether or not she agrees with Dr. Hynek’s evaluation of the case.This is a very historical run down — an exclusive, a first, like only we can bring you.
