But did you also know that Jersey has a rich history of UFO sightings?

And by that I mean there was one stretch in the mid-60s where a UFO sighting was documented by hundreds of residents as well as prominent local figures throughout one town in Jersey.

Personally, I believe aliens exist in some way, shape, or form so the thought of a UFO spotting to me at least is kind of an exciting one.

According to Only In Your State, the year was 1966.

The location was Wanaque New Jersey, which is in the Northern part of the state, a small mountainous town surrounded by trees.

On January 11th, a call was placed to police about a glowing light in the sky.

The moving light was then seen by the mayor of Wanaque at the time as well as a lot more residents.

Then, out of nowhere, it disappeared.

A few days later near the Ramapo Mountains, the same glowing object would show up in the sky, again witnessed by residents in town.

The object showed up a few more times throughout the year and each time was seen hovering lowly in the sky, giving off a dim glow, then seemed to disappear never to be seen again.

Is that enough to make you believe in UFOs? Or are you still going to remain a skeptic?

UFOs aren't the only thing that can make your spine crawl, here are some of Jersey's scariest haunts.
