Best UFO Cases of the 1950s

By

Here are Some of My Top Pick UFO Cases of the 1950s

1. 1951-The Lubbock Lights

A group of Texas Tech professors saw numerous groups of racing lights one night while sitting outside. The sighting was reported, but the local Air Force denied that any planes were flying that night. 18-year old Carl Hart Jr would take five photographs of the fast moving objects, which would become known as the Lubbock Lights.

2. 1952-UFOs buzz Washington D. C.

UFOs buzzed the White House, the Capitol building, and the Pentagon. Seemingly the unknown objects were defying the very governmental agencies sworn to protect the United States from foreign powers. Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base picked up a number of UFOs on their radar screens on July 19, 1952, beginning a wave of sightings still unexplained to this day. Numerous photographs were taken of the unknown objects.

3. 1955-The Kelly, Kentucky Alien Invasion

One of the most bizarre accounts of alien contact on record. The Sutton family farmhouse was under siege from small alien beings for several hours one night. Family members shot at the beings, but without effect. The beings had claw-like hands, and large ears. This account has never been debunked. Family members drew pictures of the strange beings.

4. 1957-Levelland, Texas UFO Landing

No less than 8 official sightings, including policemen, would highlight a night of terror in a small Texas town. UFOs were flying, hovering, and even landing on the roads around Levelland. Police officers gave testimony to the US Air Force. One of the best documented cases in UFO annals.
