Fellow eyewitness corroborates Aaron Rodgers’ UFO story


Aaron Rodgers claimed in a recent podcast that he and some friends saw a UFO in 2005 while he was on the East Coast for the NFL Draft. One of his fellow eyewitnesses has stepped forward to corroborate the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s account of the supposed close encounter with something out of this world.

Steve Levy, who was one of Rodgers’ college teammates at Cal, confirmed Rodgers’ recollection of the events, except that it occurred near his family home in Cornwall, NY, not in New Jersey as Rodgers stated.

“I remember very, very, very vividly what Aaron was talking about,” Levy told on Thursday. “It was absolutely wild.”

As Levy remembers it, he, his brother and Rodgers heard something outside sounding like a siren — the Levy family home is nearby a power plant, which he suggested could have explained the noise — and the three went out to investigate.

“We went out to the back and there’s a huge tree line over the top of my parents’ property and we saw something,” Levy said. “We were like, ‘What the hell is that?’ We saw the reddish, orange, yellowish light that kept going side by side. It was quite large. And then it just disappeared.

“People were asking me what it looked like and I Googled warp speed and that’s the closest that it looked like, how it disintegrated. Like when you’re watching Star Trek and they go warp speed and all those lights just turn into lines. It just vanished.”

Levy says his parents and another brother also witnessed the same phenomenon from inside the house.

“We all looked at each other and said, ‘What the (heck) was that?!'” he said. “We got very startled. It was like, ‘Oh my God. What just happened?’ We ran through the house screaming.”

Levy also corroborated Rodgers’ claim that he remembers several fighter jets flying overhead shortly afterward. But most of all, Levy wants to be clear that everything Rodgers said is exactly how he remembers the unforgettable experience.

“I stand behind Aaron,” he said. “It had to be a UFO. There’s nothing else that it could be.”
