  1. In 1974, California governor Ronald Reagan and three passengers of a Cessna Citation aircraft over Bakersfield, Calif. alerted pilot Bill Paynter to a strange object near the rear of the plane. It looked like a light that accelerated to an incredible speed and appeared to elongate. They followed it for a while until the object ascended straight up into the sky. Reagan recounted the event to the "Wall Street Journal's" Washington bureau chief Norman C. Miller, before realizing what his story would sound like to a reporter. The man who would one day be a U.S. president never mentioned it in public again.
