UFOs in the daily Press:

Sighting in El Paso:

The article below was published in the newspaper Clovis News-Journal, Clovis, New Mexico, USA, page 4, on July 6, 1947.


ANOTHER FLYING DISC SEEN: Dr. G. Oliver Disckson of El Paso says he saw a "flying disc" zipping over the city. He said it was about 30 feet in diameter and five feet thick. Here, he holds two pie pans together to show the shape of the disc he saw. It hurtled over Mt. Franklin and disappeared over Mexico. Lieut. Col. Harold Turner, commander of the the White Sands Proving Grounds, New Mexico, said he is convinced after an investigation that the "flying discs" are meteorites.

(NEA Telephoto)


In the article, some lines were inverted and I put them back in the correct order.

Note the "Telephoto": this shows that unlike it was said by some, the photo of rancher William Brazel was not the first time a photo was scanned digitally sent through the newswires.
