Being a cop is a tough job. They deal with criminals and the victims of crime. The job can be gritty, disturbing, frustrating, sad and at times harrowing. So what happens when you believe that you’re headed to a fire, only to find out that there was no fire at all but rather a UFO hovering in the skies 100 feet from you? Well that’s exactly what happened to officer Manuel Amparano on May 18th, in 1978. Upon arrival the officer realized that the fire was actually a disk shaped craft emitting colors leaving the officer stunned. Amparano watched the craft for five minutes before being blasted by a light beam and you can learn more about this event HERE.
