The Pennine Hills, located in Northern England, played host to a number of strange phenomenon throughout the 1970s and into the 80s. From the “Phantom Copters” of 1973, to triangular shaped UFOs and low hovering objects that would stop cars, the area was a hotspot.

It ultimately culminated in two events connected by one person, Alan Godfrey. The mysterious death of Zigmund Adamski was strange by police standards, but even stranger when the police refused to investigated it. It became stranger four months later, when the officer involved would have a startling encounter with alien beings.

This week, we talk about the Pennine Mystery!

The Night Monitor just released and album inspired by this case! You can check it out on bandcamp.
