The whole article:
“Out of 592 *U* listings for 1957 worldwide, 368 were in North America. 219 worldwide were in the single month of November.

UFO activity is centered around the height of the Taurids meteor shower. Some misidentifications are inevitable despite all efforts to filter noise like that out.

Active areas include the Southern California desert, Indiana, Northern New Jersey and Massachussetts [sic]. Some states seem entirely untouched by this wave.

Note Los Angeles, CA and Levelland, TX at the same latitude but 1000 miles apart. Seeming alignments run both Northeast and NNW from the El Paso - Fort Bliss area in Texas.”

“Subject: USAF Strategic Air Command began
Ground Alert Operations on October 1, 1957”

Quote from the web page:
“USAF Strategic Air Command began Ground Alert Operations on October 1, 1957, whereby it would maintain approximately one-third of its aircraft on ground alert, with weapons loaded and crews standing by for immediate take-off.

The beginings of the great UFO Wave of 1957 seemed to have started in October 1957 and continued through December 1957.

In the first week in November 1957, the predicted UFO wave began. As sightings occurred worldwide, the greatest number of sightings seemed to concentrate in the United States, Brazil, and Japan. In terms of numbers the UFO wave of 1957 produced more UFO sightings than any other UFO wave. At this unique period of time the CIA established ‘The Director of Central Intelligence Committee on Overhead Reconnaissance’. Years later this committee evolved into the very spooky National Reconnaissance Office. The NRO’s focus is planet earth.”

At the Eglin Air Force Base Through the Years


Website: NICAP.org

Eglin Air Force Base is located about three miles (5 kilometres) south west of Valparaiso in Okaloosa County, Florida.


Wikipedia article: “Eglin Air Force Base”:


Quote from the Wikipedia article:
Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) (IATA: VPS, ICAO: KVPS, FAA LID: VPS) is a United States Air Force base in western Florida, located about three miles (5 km) southwest of Valparaiso in Okaloosa County.

The host unit at Eglin is the 96th Test Wing (formerly the 96th Air Base Wing).[2][3] The 96 TW is the test and evaluation center for Air Force air-delivered weapons, navigation and guidance systems, Command and Control systems, and Air Force Special Operations Command systems.

Eglin AFB was established 84 years ago in 1935 as the Valparaiso Bombing and Gunnery Base.”

“Blue-Green UFO Sighted”


2 February 1976
(The Journal, Okaloosa/West Florida, Florida)
(according to the newspaper image)

Source: Newspapers.com

The whole article:
“EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE – This mammoth Air Force installation sighted its first unidentified flying object Saturday [31 January 1976], an object that officials say didn’t show up either in more than 40 photographs or on Air Force radar screens.

The UFO hovered over the east end of Duke Field for almost two hours, officials said, giving off a blueish-green [sic] color and trailing a light vapor exhaust.

A military policeman was the first to report sighting the object while making his rounds about 4:35 a.m. It was visible until the first light, about 7 a.m., according to Lt. Steve Phalen of the Eglin Information Office.

An Air Force policeman said the object appeared to be the size of a C-130 cargo plane or a Boeing 707, the base said. About a half-dozen people reportedly saw the object.

Phalen said base radar operators tried to track it ‘but nothing ever visualized on our screens.’

The base called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office and the Federal Aeronautics Administration in Crestview, but neither reported any sightings. Weather conditions at the time were hazy, Phalen said.

Phalen said, a ‘normal photographic gear’ was used in the futile picture-taking.”
