Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a recent guest on the You Made It Weird podcast with Pete Holmes, and he somehow ended up describing the time he apparently saw an alien spacecraft in the night sky over New Jersey.
Rodgers says the incident happened in 2005, and that his former Cal teammate Steve Levy saw it, too. Here’s how he described the UFO, via the Milwaukee Record:
It was a large orange, left-to-right-moving object. Because of the overcast nature of the night and the snow, you couldn’t make out—it was kind of behind the clouds we were seeing, but it was definitively large, moving from left to right. It was me, Steve [Levy], and his brother that saw it. And it goes out of sight and we look at each other and go “What in the fuck was that?”
Rodgers goes on to say that shortly after seeing the alleged UFO, he heard what sounded like fighter jets patrolling the skies, and that he heard a siren from a nearby nuclear power plant just before the sighting. These are apparently common threads that tie together a lot of sightings.
Rodgers definitely wasn’t joking around, and clearly believes he saw something out of the ordinary that night. More importantly, I am insanely jealous of anyone who has a good story about a UFO sighting. I just want to see something that I can reasonably convince myself was an alien before I die, man.
