The incident has been deemed a "significantly historic and true event" by the Great Barrington Historical Society and Massachusetts historians.
My guest Thom Reed is one of 4 Reed family members involved in a historic UFO case beginning in the early 1960s leading up to 1969 when Thom his younger brother his mother and grandmother were all abducted by what is described as a huge brilliant floating light (the size of a strip mall) over the country side near Sheffield Massachusetts. This experience had life altering consequences not only for the Reed family but for Sheffield and the entire nation.
This historic UFO case was assigned a Vallee classification of “CE-4” (close encounter of the 4th kind) with a case category of 3 (physical evidence).
Close encounter of the 3rd kind = Entities have been observed on the UFO
Close encounter of the 4th kind = Witness has been abducted.
