MUFON’S DIRECTOR CLIFFORD CLIFT’S UFO EXPERIENCE
Greeley resident Clifford Clift had an experience in 1953 that sparked his interest in unidentified flying objects. The experience changed the course of his life forever as he slowly became an expert in identifying unidentified objects.
He is now International Director of the Mutual UFO Network, more commonly known as MUFON.
Greeley Tribune reports that Clift said that the experience came when he and his grandmother were members of the Ground Observer Corps for the Air Force.
“It was during the Cold War, and the Air Force had established sites all across the U.S. to watch for aircraft. The country was terrified that Russia was going to bomb us,” Clift said in an interview to Greeley Tribune.
Clift recalled that the Air Force would call alerts and he and his grandmother would go out to their site to watch for aircraft. Clift noted that on one October evening in 1953 when an alert was called, he went out watching the sky and that experience happened.
“It was a night with white fluffy clouds, that were pretty sparse, and a full moon,” Clift remembered.
“It was about the size of the moon, only it traveled across the sky, southeast to northwest, in about 10 or 15 seconds. It was going so fast it appeared it left a tail that wasn’t very long, but was fuzzy,” he said, adding that it didn’t make any noise, he added.
Clift added that he ran from the site and told his grandmother what he had seen. “At first, she didn’t believe me. But she finally relented and agreed to call in. I still remember our call sign. It was Bravo, Lima, Red 1,” Clift said.
KENS NOTE: Mr Clift is going to take MUFON to the next level. These are exciting times.
