Aaron Rodgers says he heard fighter jets following a UFO

Author:

There's a lot of great stuff from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during his appearance on HBO's "Any Given Wednesday" with Bill Simmons, but the part where he says he saw a UFO and "heard" fighter jets following it is easily the most fascinating part of this 10-minute video.

Rodgers first talked about UFO sightings in March, but it's pretty safe to say a lot of people didn't hear about it.

Fast forward to the 9:00 mark to hear Rodgers tell his story.

The first time Rodgers brought up UFO's was on the "You Made it Weird" podcast with Pete Holmes. Here's the link, the UFO talk starts at the 14:45 mark.

"There was a weird siren in the distance," Rodgers said. "So we go outside – it was a snowy night – and we went outside and it was one of those kind of bright nights, where it's overcast, but there's enough light from the moon to see things and the next thing you know, we saw something in the sky."

He compared what he saw to one of the huge ships from the movie "Independence Day."

"And it goes out of sight and we look at each other and go, 'What in the (expletive) was that?'" Rodgers said. And thirty seconds after it had gone out of sight he and two others heard the "definitive sound" of a fighter jet, just like in "Top Gun," Rodgers explained.
