MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A man who believes he saw a UFO in Geauga County shared his amazing story Thursday night.
"There's this disc above the lake," longtime resident Glenn Frohring said. "It just hovered there and all of a sudden it was like it was on a giant rubber band and went woof just like that."
Frohring said he believes the disc he saw that day in 1954 was a UFO. And there were other sightings during that same decade.
One man reported seeing a UFO leave a crop circle at Patti Clemson's grandparents' farm in Montville Township.
"I just remember them saying it was a UFO and this man saw it and went home to get someone and came back and it was gone," Clemson recalled.
She was seven years old at the time.
The subject of UFO sightings resurfaced with the planned opening of Observatory Park, which will offer a unique look into outer space. The facility is about a mile from the farm Patti Clemson's grandparents once owned.
"I'm sure it happened," she said of the mysterious crop circles.
Frohring has a theory about why there were so many UFO sightings in the 1950s. He believes it had something to do with the setting off of atom bombs.
And why were the sightings in Geauga County and not Cleveland?
"It's rural," Frohring said. "People are outside."
