May has arrived, that means time for me to share some of the more interesting sightings this month on the UFO timeline. Let's check this out :
1. May ? 1932 - The Sutton UFO Photograph - A Vintage UFO Encounter
(Enlargement of Object)
2. May 1944 - The Mysterious Foo Fighters
This is just one of many photos of "foo fighters" taken by pilots during the war. This particular photo was taken over Germany. These inexplicable spheres and discs of light were reported to be seen flying in formation, sometimes in what appeared to be mock battle or simply tailing squadrons of fighters. At the time, many military experts believed them to be advanced German flying machines or some kind of new weaponry, yet the "foo fighters" never attacked allied aircraft.
3. May 11, 1950 - McMinnville, Oregon UFO Photos
4. May 20, 1953 - Kingman, Arizona UFO Crash
5. May 24, 1962 - Astronaut Scott Carpenter Snaps UFO In Space
M. Scott Carpenter duplicated Glenn's feat with an additional orbital flight lasting 4 hours 56 minutes and 5 seconds. Mercury-Atlas 7 was designated Aurora 7. During the flight, Carpenter took this photograph of a UFO which he saw close to his capsule.
6. May 15, 1963 - Astronaut Gordon Cooper Sees UFO During Spaceflight
On May 15, 1963 he shot into space in a Mercury capsule for a 22 orbit journey around the world. During the final orbit, Major Cooper told the tracking station at Muchea Australia that he could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of him quickly approaching his capsule. The UFO was real and solid because it was picked up by Mucheas's tracking radar.
- "For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that everyday, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us."
