America's first UFO was a floating hog over the Muddy River

New England Folklore recounts an incident on March 1, 1639, recorded by none other than Gov. John Winthrop, involving a "great light" floating over what is now the Boston/Brookline line that morphed into the shape of a pig before flying off in the direction of Charlestown.

Is if somebody inflated and flew a giant pig balloon by the old South Boston power plant before the smokestack comes down.

Across the Mystic from Charlestown, where the pig floated towards, is a smaller version of the infamous Battersea generation station featured on that Pink Floyd album.

Double win for that reenactment!

babasically, a black flying pig is one of the incantations of the Anti-Christ.
