There is a long history of UFOs over Nevada. The state is home to Area 51 after all. And a recently released book showcases Nevada’s more than a century of fascinating UFO encounters.

In his late 2014 book, UFOs Over Nevada: A True History of Extraterrestrial Encounters in the Silver State, author and UFO researcher Preston Dennett provides a comprehensive history of encounters with UFOs, and even alleged encounters with extraterrestrials, that have occurred in Nevada. The book provides “a dazzling array of sightings, landings, face-to-face encounters, abductions, and even UFO crash/retrievals arranged by decades.”

KLAS investigative reporter George Knapp did a special report about Dennett’s book on Tuesday, November 24. Knapp describes that “The incidents listed in the book are not so easily explained.” He continues, “They’ve been reported dating back more than a century by credible witnesses from all walks of life.”

According to Knapp, one of the best cases in the book involves a military officer whose car died outside of Tonopah, NV. Knapp describes, “The officer spotted four flying saucer shaped craft sitting beside Highway 95. He walked toward them to get a closer look.” Dennett adds, “All of a sudden, the buzzing sound increases in pitch and all of these objects take off at once and dart away. He’s amazed, he rushes back to his car which now starts fine and reports the sighting to officials.”

UFOs Over Nevada is available on Amazon.
