UFOs in North Bergen
The “Stonehenge Incident” or the “North Hudson Park UFO sightings” occurred on January 12, 1975 at approximately 2: 45 AM when a UFO was allegedly sighted in North Hudson Park in North Bergen, New Jersey by George O’Barski. Barski, a North Bergen resident, who was driving home, suddenly heard static over his radio. Through his car window, he saw a dark, round spacecraft with brightly lit windows hovering over the ground. Ten small, hooded, identically dressed figures emerged from the UFO, dug up soil and collected it in bags before returning to the vessel. He returned to the site the next day and found the holes that had been left. Hudson County Police Officers Thomas Feldhan and John Mackanics investigated and filed reports.
Months later, O’Barski relayed the story to an old acquaintance, Budd Hopkins, who was interested in UFOs. Hopkins and two others associated with Center for UFO Studies found independent witnesses, namely the doormen at the Stonehenge, who reported sighting a UFO in park the same time. Hopkins, Ted Bloecher, then director of New York State’s Mutual UFO Network, and Jerry Stoehrer, also of MUFON,investigated the incident, interviewing the witness and taking soil samples. A story about the incident was published in the Village Voice. Hopkins wrote the book, Missing Time, which drew further attention to the incident.
