NICAP's "The Year of the UFO" (November)

The year 1957 figures prominently in November's calendar of the best UFO cases on record, as Texas and New Mexico experienced highly bizarre activity that remains, like most of the older reports offered here, unexplained 35 years after NICAP distributed "The Year of the UFO" to its membership.

My previous blog entry highlights an aspect of the November 9, 1965 Northeastern U.S. power blackout noted here, and the month is also significant for the famous Lake Superior incident in 1953, where radar seemed to show the merger of a huge UFO with a military aircraft and a two-man crew sent to investigate its presence. Recent news reports and underwater photos indicating that the missing airmen's craft may have been located are now considered a probable hoax, based upon investigations by MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) and others.
