     A memorial marking the location of a 1969 close encounter, known as "our nation's first off-world/UFO incident," is going to be moved.

During a recently conducted land survey, the town found that the memorial, as well as a bench and lighting decorating the area, is still on a town right-of-way easement and must be removed by the owner or the town will do so in May, according to Town Administrator Rhonda LaBombard.

The memorial was purchased with donations from community members and some of the 40 people who witnessed the unidentified flying object.
