On the afternoon of Feb18th,1950 an Air Force Major, William J. Haynor and two M/sgt were reported to have observed a UFO for an 1 hour and 44
minutes. Rising from the horizon it changed from a round object to an "ice cream cone" shape, and was described as the size of "a coffee cup held
at arms length". During some point the lower portion reflected the sun and seemed to swing back and forth. It eventually became to dim to see.
The Air Force labeled this as the star Vega, for some reason. It isn't noted who told them that Vega could reflect the sunlight or swing back and
forth, nor how often this star was known to appear the size of a coffee cup at arms length.
If these men, with some rank and standing in the military, were so confused by a simple star, it is a wonder that we ever won WWII.
