About Thom Reed:
The Reed UFO Incident made 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”. With its admission and State Citations by Massachusetts Governor, Charles D. Barker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn E. Polito, and the Massachusetts Historical Society. 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 covered live by ABC News NY. Judge Kevin W. Titus of the 30th district court later signed and sealed the records by Governor Charles D. Baker and the Historical Society, declaring them uncontested lawful documents. With the generous sponsorship of the International UFO Museum in Roswell, the grounds nearing the monument were expanded in 2017, to include benches and solar lights. The “UFO Monument”, brandishing its State seal and a Governors Citation, is a powerful symbol of progress and modern day history. Please note that the “UFO Monument Park” is located at the exact location of the 1969 Labor Day incident.
