UFO Wilmington DE, July 1860, Multiple Witnesses, Cigar Shaped Craft

July 13, 1860 Wilmington Delaware - 200 Foot Long Craft

On July 13, 1860, at 9:45 PM a pale blue light engulfed the city of Wilmington, Delaware. Residents looked up into the evening sky to see its source: a 200-foot-long craft (something) streaking along on a level course 100 feet above. Trailing behind it at 100-foot intervals cruised three "very red and glowing balls." A fourth abruptly joined the other three after shooting out from the rear of the main object, which was "giving off sparkles after the manner of a rocket." The lead object turned toward the southeast, passed over the Delaware River, and then headed straight east until lost from view. The incident -- reported in the Wilmington Tribune, July 30, 1860 -- lasted one minute.
