  • The Reed UFO Incident made headlines in 2015 when it became the Nation’s first UFO encounter to be officially inducted into the archives of the United States, as "Historically Significant and True". With its admission and two (2) State Citations by Massachusetts Governor, Charles D. Barker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn E. Polito, and the Massachusetts Historical Society.  Following this first of a kind entry into State’s antiquity, a 5000 pound commemorative Monument was unveiled. The induction and the unveiling of the UFO Monument graced the front page of the Boston Globe and was covered live by ABC News NY. Judge Kevin W. Titus of the 30th district court later signed and sealed the records by Governor Charles D. Baker and the Historical Society, declaring them uncontested lawful documents.  With the generous sponsorship of the International UFO Museum in Roswell, the grounds nearing the monument were expanded in 2017, to include benches and solar lights. The "UFO Monument"  now brandishing a State seal and a Governors Citation, is a powerful symbol of progress and modern day history. Please note that the “UFO Monument Park” is located at the exact location of the 1969 Labor Day incident, of Sept 1st 1969


  • Thom, now retired, was the founder of the International Model & Artist Group, Miami Models South Beach. His late father Dr. Howard Reed was an Attorney, College professor and in Public Office. His grandmother was the governess for William Roosevelt the grandson of President Roosevelt in Cherry Hills Colorado, with residence on the property. 


  • The Incident has been the subject of several programs and documentaries, as well as the S1-E1 launch of Discovery Channels “Alien Mysteries”. Reed has been featured on Good Morning Canada, Inner Space, Paranormal Paparazzi, Uncovering Aliens, and New England Legends.

Overview

The incident involving his family and their 1960's Diner made United States history in 2015 becoming the 1st UFO related case to be officially inducted into state history as historically significant and true.


  • In October  2015, Governor Charles D. Baker signed and issued a citation formally inducting the Reed encounter and Thom Reed into Massachusetts State history. Following a polygraph exam, and archives by historians that confirmed the incident had altered the national progression of the area, the incident was publicly inducted by State and the Historical Society. This decision was celebrated by the unveiling of a 5000-pound monument with live coverage by ABC News NY. The incident and records are now rightfully part of the Historical Society's Collection. The Thom Reed UFO incident was selected as the S1 E1 launch of Discovery Channel's Alien Mysteries and the S1 E1 launch of Travel Channels Paranormal Paparazzi. Other films include New England Legends and Science Channel's Uncovering Aliens. Reed has been the subject of six (6) documentaries and feature films, with guest appearances on the Fox Morning Show, and the Canada Morning Show. Reed was featured as himself, in films CSI Miami, Inside-out and the 2017 Hollywood Movie “Encounter” with actors Pete Stormare (Bad Boys 2 Fargo & John Wick 2) and Dee Wallace (ET)   Reed is the son of Nancy (Burrows) Reed, FM radio personality for WKZE, owner of Village on the Green Restaurant in Sheffield, MA, who also bred horses. His step-father, Dr. Howard Reed, an Attorney and Connecticut Politician. From 1960 through 1962, Thom lived in the home of William Roosevelt, the grandson of President Roosevelt in Cherry Hills, Colorado. His mother, Nancy, and grandmother were employed by the Roosevelt’s with residence on the property. By 1963 Reed would move to a home in Sheffield, Massachusetts, just miles from the Barrington Horse Track. In this quaint Norman Rockwell setting, Thom and his family would undergo life-altering events. Due to Thom’s vulnerable age, these compounded encounters had an enormous impact, crushing his belief system, altering his reality, normalcy, and spirit. His recall of Sept 1, 1969, is one of an illuminated craft ascending from the water while exiting the Sheffield Bridge. Their car engulfed in light, weightlessness then a dead silence. An eruption of crickets and then Thom’s standing in an enormous open area reminiscent of an airplane hangar. Grabbed firmly on his left arm and walked to an area where cylinder shaped equipment was lowered from above. Now back in their station wagon, but his mother and grandmother's locations are reversed with his mother now in the passenger seat. The incident of September 1, 1969, made news on Barrington's WSBS Radio, as they and the local police department became flooded with reports of a disk-shaped object.       

Early Years

  Personal Life: 






  • After his families move to CT and purchasing the property well-known for the book A Death in Canaan he attended NWCC and A.I. Price Tech. What kick-started his career was an opportunity as Stage & Lighting Coordinator for Runway Fashion Shows in Hartford. His break came for working as Stage Manager and Photographer for Club Getaway (Club Med) where his work was noticed by Dannell Gallo an editor for Penthouse. Gallo invited Reed to Omni-Penthouse on Feb 26, 1986, on 1965 Broadway NY where he was introduced to slide film and lightboxes. Not interested in the opportunities he married and found work in Miami Beach, shooting Model Composite Cards. Agencies: Michelle Pommier, Ford, Wilhelmina, Greene Agency, Chic, Elite AGE, Irene Marie, Boca Talent, World of Kids, Famous Faces. Reed’s years in the fashion industry showcased his talents, winning the newcomer first place in South Florida photography contests twice. In 1998 Reed invested his savings in the formation of “Miami Models” Miami Models would become the largest Model Management Company in South Florida, respected for Children’s Print Fashion and Runway. The Hoovers listed and registered trademarked company represented over 700 Artists, the Dolphin Cheerleaders, and NFL Players. Under Mr. Reed's direction, the firm obtained clients that included Polo Black Label, L’Oréal, Nike Athletic, US Polo, Saks Fifth Avenue, MTV, Dillard's, and Tommy Hilfiger. Thom filled in as a Talent Agent for Trans Continental Records, and later worked as a TV Producer for the Syndicated Television Show Today's Health with Tennis Pro Chris Evert. This all came to an end one morning when a speeding tractor-trailer ran a light in Boca Raton, FL nearly costing Thom his life. He would see his father for the last time at his bedside before Howard was killed on Oct 2, 2006, the same date their attorney addressed the United Nations on the UFO subject. Thom’s wife left him a month later leaving his 11-year-old son to care for him.  He dedicated the induction of the UFO Monument to his late father.
