UFO BIO


  • The Reed UFO Incident made International headlines in 2015 when it became the Nation’s first UFO encounter to be officially inducted into the archives of the United States, as "Historically Significant and True". This official induction consisted of two State Citations by Massachusetts Governor, Charles D. Barker, and Lieutenant Governor Karyn E. Polito. The Massachusetts Historical Society also issued an official State induction in February of 2015.  Following this first of a kind entry into State’s antiquity, a 5000-pound commemorative Monument was unveiled. The induction and the unveiling of the UFO Monument graced the front page of the Boston Globe, and was covered live by ABC News NY. Judge Kevin W. Titus of the 30th district court later sealed the records by Governor Charles D. Baker and the Historical Society, declaring them uncontested lawful documents. In 2018, the Historical Marker Database added the UFO Monument to its library of official landmarks. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Seal was then added to the front of the UFO Monument.
  • Due to generous sponsorship and/or donations by the International UFO Museum in Roswell, History Channels, Ancient Aliens, and Shockwave Motors, the area has become a nationally recognized UFO Park, maintained by www.ufopark.org.

Overview

image28

  • The incident involving his family and their 1960's Diner made United States history in 2015 becoming the 1st UFO related case to be officially inducted into state history as historically significant and true.


  • In October  2015, Governor Charles D. Baker signed and issued a citation formally inducting the Reed encounter and Thom Reed into Massachusetts State history. Following a polygraph exam, and archives by historians that confirmed the incident had altered the national progression of the area, the incident was publicly inducted by State and the Historical Society. This decision was celebrated by the unveiling of a 5000-pound monument with live coverage by ABC News NY. The incident and records are now rightfully part of the Historical Society's Collection. The Thom Reed UFO incident was selected as the S1 E1 launch of Discovery Channel's Alien Mysteries and the S1 E1 launch of Travel Channels Paranormal Paparazzi. Other films include New England Legends and Science Channel's Uncovering Aliens. Reed has been the subject of six (6) documentaries and feature films, with guest appearances on the Fox Morning Show, and the Canada Morning Show. Reed was featured as himself, in films CSI Miami, Inside-out and the 2017 Hollywood Movie “Encounter” with actors Pete Stormare (Bad Boys 2 Fargo & John Wick 2) and Dee Wallace (ET)   Reed is the son of Nancy (Burrows) Reed, FM radio personality for WKZE, owner of Village on the Green Restaurant in Sheffield, MA, who also bred horses. His step-father, Dr. Howard Reed, an Attorney and Connecticut Politician. From 1960 through 1962, Thom lived in the home of William Roosevelt, the grandson of President Roosevelt in Cherry Hills, Colorado. His mother, Nancy, and grandmother were employed by the Roosevelt’s with residence on the property. By 1963 Reed would move to a home in Sheffield, Massachusetts, just miles from the Barrington Horse Track. In this quaint Norman Rockwell setting, Thom and his family would undergo life-altering events. Due to Thom’s vulnerable age, these compounded encounters had an enormous impact, crushing his belief system, altering his reality, normalcy, and spirit. His recall of Sept 1, 1969, is one of an illuminated craft ascending from the water while exiting the Sheffield Bridge. Their car engulfed in light, weightlessness then a dead silence. An eruption of crickets and then Thom’s standing in an enormous open area reminiscent of an airplane hangar. Grabbed firmly on his left arm and walked to an area where cylinder shaped equipment was lowered from above. Now back in their station wagon, but his mother and grandmother's locations are reversed with his mother now in the passenger seat. The incident of September 1, 1969, made news on Barrington's WSBS Radio, as they and the local police department became flooded with reports of a disk-shaped object.
