Could it be possible for a town to collectively stop reporting UFOs? Could the residents be so fed up with the notoriety and curiosity seekers that their collective consciousness decides “no more”. There are some places around the

“The Hudson River
Yes, a major UFO flap which centered around one Jewish cemetery in Pine Bush. Some of these reports were so astounding as to include UFO craft landings with little entities. When the reports finally quieted down the media went quickly to other topics…but the UFOs were still there.
The people in Pine Bush are secluded souls on purpose. They have no time for big city ideas or money schemes. A rural town surrounded by farms, the residents love their privacy most of all. At the end of this long drawn out flap the town had had enough. One UFO writer spent a great deal of time around Pine Bush and the surrounding area in a great small book called, “The Pine Bush Phenomenon” by Vincent Polise. Polise was there not only during the publicized flap but also years later. In a brief run in with a long time resident, Polise catches the understandable mood of the townspeople. Vincent, on one of his many trips to Pine Bush, brought up the subject of UFOs to one of these residents. The answer was short and to the point, “No, there are no UFOs now, please go now.”
The reaction of these town folks surprised writer Polise but as a long time follower of UFO witness reactions this was not surprising to me. I believe that statement reflected many people in this small private community. Debunkers will constantly spin the idea that everyone in the rural towns are just dying for the notoriety of UFO reporting and in fact hoaxing is their pastime. But that is just not the reality of most UFO witnesses, especially in small towns. Most residents at Pine Bush would like it to stay small and quiet and for the UFOs to go away.
The question is: did the UFOs ever really go away?
The recent Stephenville UFO flap has proven the UFO sightings continue long after the media has gone to sleep on the experiences. In an article update in the MUFON journal reporting on Stephenville, MUFON received 300 UFO reports months after the press had refused to print any more on the subject. In other words, the “Stephenville” flap wasn’t over just because the press said it was over. The reason why the press stopped printing UFO Stories was simply because of phone calls from the locals who wanted it to stop. No big conspiracies… just people being people.
There are two types of UFO obsessions. The first I call the “Passive UFO” personality who just follow the UFO story by way of the news, media and now the internet. The second type is the “Active UFO” follower who want to experience a UFO. They go to the UFO places that they hear about and learn what is going on. They try to have an experience. Some of these people are not thoughtful. They will trample on private property and just seem to forget the simply courtesies of life. Yet, there are those respectful adventurers who understand they represent something larger than themselves. This type of person may actually help keep these UFO flaps going long after they have died in the media. For example, in his book, Victor Polise mentioned how he believes many people in the “Pine Bush” area have videos and photos of what they witnessed. Polise himself continued to investigate and experience phenomenon long after the public thought it was over. . There may be, as he suggested, many more photos and videos of UFOs and even landings with little entities that would never see the light of day. He not only became a experiencer but a partner in the phenomenon.
When I’ve written in the past about going to certain area that attract UFOs I never wrote about Pine Bush and the greater
I asked about the flap of UFO reports at this Flying Saucer diner but they seemed to be unaware of what we were talking about.
Pine Bush was much more than just UFOs. It was in effect what is called a “High Strangeness Area.” Not only were there various “silent” craft reported but globes of light, shadow animals and loud machinery noises seeming to emanate from under the ground. The reports were so amazing and continual that it inspired a book entitled “Night Siege.”
One report had hundreds of people pulling their cars off the highway to stare at a huge "silent" triangle that flew over. So many people saw this that it spun a “debunkers dumb explanation”: “A group of pilots played a hoax by flying their small planes at night in close formation”.( I wonder how they kept all those engines silent.)
