Newton has been plagued with U. F. O.s since the 70s it seems. There have been at least four reports of U. F. O. sightings in Newton in the last forty years, one per decade it seems. The last one that I can recall happened in 1997. It was called in by a man who was on the way to work when he noticed some unusual lights in the sky. My grandfather also saw some strange lights one day during the twilight hour. He was never quite sure what he saw. What aliens would want with a sleepy Georgia town is anybody’s guess. One thing is for sure, Southwest Georgia has a number of unusual events surrounding it!
