"On the evening of Sunday 9 March, he and a friend witnessed a fleet of flying saucers traveling across the sky in a hexagonal formation. 
 The sighting lasted almost a full 10 minutes and rendered him absolutely speechless.  'The whole thing had an astonishing effect on me'
 he told friends.    For days afterward he felt inexplicably strange whenever he recalled the incident.    The eerie encounter left him firmly
 convinced that the government was covering up the truth about UFOs.   ...   Now, he was the living proof that aliens scoured the Earth." 

 
- Johnny Rogan.  MORRISSEY AND MARR: THE SEVERED ALLIANCE.  Omnibus Press.  Published 1992. 


"On trips to London, Morrissey would visit Maker; on one occasion the pair were insistent that they saw
'flying saucers hover low
 and slow over Bermondsey,'  only about three hundred feet in front of them, and they reported the sighting to the UFO Society.  ...  
 '
At one point I stood on the balcony and stared directly into one hovering ship, and it STOPPED in mid-air above me, Morrissey
 wrote to his friend Lindsay Hutton.  'Without a doubt, it was watching me!' "

"It all started in the basement of Ingridís small apartment in metropolitan Washington.  There, a dream was born: the launch of an organization
dedicated to lifting animals from the depths of cruelty and suffering that would ignite the animal rights movement and educate the world about
why animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.  On March 22, 1980, PETA was founded."
