One of the most famous UFO sightings in the world happened in Mississippi.On Feb. 10, 1977, nearly two dozen law enforcement officers witnessed a giant floating object above the tree line in a cotton field off a rural Madison County road near Flora.A former deputy who said he saw the UFO told his story to WAPT's Darren Dedo. The deputy wanted his identity to be protected, so for the story, Dedo called him Joe."I'll tell you what though, most of them around here, you don't realize how many people have had a close encounter with what this is," Joe said. "It was approximately 15 to 18 feet off the ground, blue in color, kind of metallic blue, portholes around the center of it, shaped like an old spinning top kids use to use."Madison County sheriff's Deputy Kenny Creel was also there that night. His description of what happened made the Flora incident world-famous. Three decades later, his cousin, Michael Creel, said the deputy is tight lipped about it."He didn't really talk about it anymore. He said if he knew it was going to cause such a ruckus, he would have never said anything about it," Michael Creel said.Dedo spoke with Kenny Creel about the UFO he supposedly saw some 34 years ago. He didn't want to go on camera, but he did tell Dedo by phone that he actually made the whole thing up -- that it was some kind of a joke. But, others aren't so sure about that.Joe believes Kenny Creel clammed up after the "feds" put the heat on him."The CIA told him that he didn't need to talk about it no more," Joe said. "They didn't want it out. I'm not sure what kind of threats were made."Local UFO researcher Patrick Frascogna has launched a new investigation of the 1977 Flora sightings."The initial sighting was Kenny Creel's and James Ray Luke," Frascogna said. "These are credible witnesses in law enforcement."Joe said people are still seeing UFOs around Flora. In January, he took a picture of something in the sky. He said the sightings are a town secret."It's one of those things folks just don't like to talk about," Joe said.ADG Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alien-Disclosure-Group/189249627773146Follow ADG on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ADG_UK
