“The objects may possibly be ships from another planet such as Mars”


 Share

Recommended Posts

On both July 19 and 20, 1952, there were repeated sightings of unknown aerial objects in the Washington, D.C., airspace, something that, on July 24, led USAF General John A. Samford to state in a Secret memorandum for the attention of the Deputy Chief of Staff, Operations: “We are interested in these reports in that we must always on the alert for any threat or indication of a threat to the United States. We cannot ignore these reports but the mild hysteria subsequent to publicity given this subject causes an influx of reports which since the 19th of July has almost saturated our ‘Emergency’ procedures.”

The situation really escalated after weekend of July 26-27. A two-page U.S. Air Force document, prepared only days later, related the facts: “This incident involved unidentified targets observed on the radar scopes at the Air Route Traffic Control Center and the tower, both at Washington National Airport, and the Approach Control Radar at Andrews Air Force Base. In addition, visual observations were reported to Andrews and Bolling AFB and to ARTC Center, the latter by pilots of commercial aircraft and one CAA aircraft.”

I wonder why they suggest Mars? That is the least likely place for a UFO to come from, we've been able to have a good look around it..

In the early 50's, when this incident occurred, very little was known about the planet of Mars.

*sighs*    Ah yes, the "Washington Lights" thing.....again.

I seriously think the sites that generate these "stories" just wait a few years to recycle old nonsense so that younger folks who haven't thoroughly looked into these events think these might be real extraterrestrial events.

Can you imagine what would happen today if unidentified objects showed up on radar screens over Washington, D.C..  :D

I would imagine they would likely either be escorted to neutral airspace or shot down.

Unfortunately, the "unidentified" returns were never conclusively shown to be of unknown origin. Then the rubbish photos surfaced that discredited any hope the initial reporting had.

Yes I understand what you saying, I just think when all of this actually occurred that the Air Defense Forces that protect D.C. must have completely freaked out. Hell I would imagine that the President was even escorted down to the bunker, anyway I imagine there was a lot of explaining to do when this situation was over. 

Peace Dude.

Not possible to engage in discussion if one party is only trying to argue and be contrary.
