UFO Tops are pocket-sized metal spinning tops inspired by eye witness accounts from Roswell, New Mexico and Cussac, France.
Inspired by the "saucer-shaped" UFO sighting in Roswell, New Mexico,1947. Many reports have been sighted through the years. One of the most famous was the ABC news report:
Headlines edition July 8, 1947.
The Army Air Force has announced that a flying disc has been found and is now in the possession of the Army.
Listen to the original 1947 radio broadcast here.
Inspired by François and Anne Marie's "spherical-shaped" UFO sighting in the small town of Cussac, France 1967.
Considered by the French government as "one of the most astonishing observed in France."
In one of the cases investigators consider most credible, a 13-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister were watching over their family's cows near the village of Cussac on Aug. 29, 1967, when the boy spotted "four small black beings" about 47 inches tall. Thinking they were other youngsters, he shouted to his sister, "Oh, there are black children!"
But as they watched, the four beings became agitated and rose into the air, entering the top of what appeared to be a round spaceship, about 15 feet in diameter, which hovered over the field.
Just as the sphere rose up, one of the passengers emerged from the top, returned to the ground to grab something, then flew back to the sphere.
The sphere rose silently in a spiral pattern, then "became increasingly brilliant" before disappearing with a loud whistling sound. It left "a strong sulfur odor after departure," the report said.
