It began as a routine patrol for Deputy Sheriff Dale Spaur in the early morning hours of April 17, 1966, as he and his partner, Mounted Officer Barney Neff, stopped to investigate a parked vehicle along a roadway. Behind them, Spaur noticed a bright light rising from behind the trees, and heading silently in their direction. What would transpire over the course of the next several hours would change their lives forever.
This week, we examine the true story of a group of police officers that chased a UFO, and reveal why this case became one of the most infamous ever investigated by the Air Force, destroying the lives of the officers involved, and even leading to an attempt to terminate its contract with its science advisor, J. Allen Hynek. All this, and much more, in this installment of The Micah Hanks Program.
