Post Haste: Recent UFO sightings reported in Athens County; New bill could help beer pack more punch

A couple UFO reports have trickled in over the past month.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Monday, Oct. 19, 2015:

Notice anything a little out of the ordinary in the Athens sky during the past few weeks?

Some locals have. Two reports to the National UFO Reporting Center have trickled in during the past month, indicating that at least tw0 people have seen what might've been UFOs in the sky over Athens.

A recent report indicated that someone saw a "bright object" fly across the sky for about 30 seconds at roughly 9 a.m. Oct. 4.

The other report concerned the night of Sept. 23, when someone claimed seeing stationary red, white and green lights in the night sky. 

Athens is no stranger to such occurrences. Since the end of 1999, 11 alleged UFO sightings in Athens have been reported to the center.
