Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes in UFOs, he recently revealed during an interview on the “You Made it Weird” podcast.
During the two-hour chat, the 32-year-old told a story about seeing a UFO nearly 10 years ago.
“I saw an unidentified flying object in the sky in New Jersey in 2005,” Rodgers said, which he compared it to something in the movie Independence Day.
“It was a large orange, left-to-right-moving object,” Rodgers said. “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 [Rodgers’ friend] and his brother that saw it. And it goes out of sight and we look at each other and go ‘What in the f*ck was that?'”
It then vanished, and making things even more weird, he says 30 seconds later, he heard what sounded like four fighter jets flying overhead.
“If you know anything about UFO sightings or if you’ve done research, you know that a lot of times two things are connected to UFO sightings: one is the presence of fighter jets to chase them down. Two is there’s a lot of sightings around nuclear power plants, and 30 miles out there was a nuclear power plant … where an alarm sounded.”
