|A copy of CIA reports of Sikkim UFO sightings in 1968|
UFO activities and strange happening have always fantasized me since my childhood. I don't claim i have come across one of them. But i believe for my future reference i would like to document that once in my childhood (I might be 9-10 years old) at Bhanu Park, Singtam while playing with my friends i saw something at sky that i never told anyone. I saw a white object that looked like a 'felt hat'. It was not more than few second that i lost that object at the sky. I never discussed it with anyone. Much latter when I came across books about the UFOs, I would give myself a push, was that a UFO.
UFO sightings in Sikkim is rarely heard or reported but it was after the declassification reports posted online by Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) one such report of UFO sighting of 1968 at the Himalayan region caught my interest. The report mentions the UFO activity of Februry-March 1968 at India/Nepal/Bhutan/China. The sightings at Sikkim was recorded at Lachung, Lachen, Thangu, Muguthang and Chholhamu on February 19, 1968. The report reads, the directions was North East to South West. The objects was giving light from the tail and it was not bright enough to brighten the entire area. The thunder sound was heard at Chholhamu after the sighting of the object.
So, this is the first official sighting of UFO in Sikkim, making it a point that we were visited in the past and we have equal chances that ‘they’ might had been visiting us here and there.
